Nintendo has commissioned Peanut Labs, a subsidiary of Research Now to do a survey about awareness of Super Mario Run. Among those asked were female gamers, male gamers ages 18 to 24, and male gamers 25 to 49  with household incomes of $100,000 or more.

What was shown that, among mobile gamers, only 52 percent are familiar with the idea and concept of Super Mario Run for mobile, which isn’t very reassuring.

This survey suggests Nintendo to be more aggressive about how to advertise for Super Mario Run in order to ensure people are aware for launch. It remains to be seen if word of mouth alone will help like was the case with Pokémon Go.

The award-winning Fallout Shelter continues to grow larger and larger on both mobile and PC platforms this month with the release of Update 1.9, which delivers all-new Quests including an exciting new location – the Caves – plus fun Thanksgiving celebrations including new stickers for iOS 10 iMessage.

Update 1.9 Content Includes:


  • New Location for Quests – Cave: In addition to abandoned buildings and derelict Vaults, Overseers can send Dwellers on spelunking adventures in a brand-new backdrop that will be immediately familiar to Fallout 4 fans – dark, mysterious caves.


  • New Quests: Update 1.9 introduces even more Quests for the demanding Overseer, including new regular, weekly, and special event Holiday Quests during the Thanksgiving celebration.


  • Holiday Festivities: The holiday celebrations continue in the Vault! In November, the Fallout Shelter Thanksgiving event will unlock limited time Quests, specially themed room visuals, and Thanksgiving outfits available in Lunchboxes. In December, Overseers will also celebrate Christmas and New Year’s with additional limited time quests and special rewards.


  • New iMessage Stickers: Building on the popularity of the Halloween stickers, Update 1.9 will introduce special Thanksgiving-themed stickers for iOS 10 iMessage users. In addition, new stickers based on the Fallout 4 Nuka-World mascots, Bottle and Cappy, are available now.


That is quite the update. Fallout Shelter has been a hit since it launched and just seems to get better and better.

No Gravatarmario-runSuper Mario Run is Nintendo’s first big mobile game (miitomo being less of a game and more of a social media app), and as such it has been highly anticipated. We now have a release date for the game on iOS devices however. The game will be released on December 15th, and you can play some of its content for free right away. You can also pay a one time fee of $9.99 for a full game unlock to access all the content at once.

Super Mario Run will launch in 151 countries, supports multiple languages and is a times exclusive for the iOS app store. Will you be buying it or checking it out?

Thanks to Data Miners at the Silph Road, we now know that new data has been added in Pokémon Go. This new data contains all the Pokémon from Gen 2 but not their moveset data yet. Also of note is that Ditto and his move, transform, were added. This data is not yet active and we do not know when it will be.  It seems like a big update is planned for Pokémon Go. Perhaps this can make the game even bigger than it already is?

No Gravatarrenegade_kid-656x427Renegade Kid Announced the following

Renegade Kid has announced that its co-founders, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove, have made the difficult decision to bring their 10-year partnership of developing games together as Renegade Kid LLC to an end.
With their friendship and respect for each other still very much intact, Watsham and Hargrove will continue developing videogames under the names of their new companies: Atooi and Infitizmo.
The award-winning library of Intellectual Properties that Renegade Kid has created over the past decade will be finding new homes. All of Renegade Kid’s “2D” games, including the Mutant Mudds series and Treasurenauts, will become the property of Atooi. All of Renegade Kid’s “3D” games, including the Dementium series and Moon Chronicles, will become the property of Infitizmo.
We hope you will share in the excitement that both Jools and Gregg feel for their new journeys. You can follow their progress on twitter: @AtooiLLC and @InfitizmoLLC.

While it is sad to hear of the studio’s demise, it is good to know that the IPs will continue and both studios will still be making games.
