Allegations of abuse at the hands well known personas in the Smash community. Victims may have been underage when the abuse occurred.

“At Nintendo, we are deeply disturbed by the allegations raised against certain members of the competitive gaming community. They are absolutely impermissible. We want to make it clear that we condemn all acts of violence, harassment, and exploitation against anyone and that we stand with the victims.”

Over the past 24 hours, in response to serious allegations recently made public on Twitter, we have made the first of a series of important decisions regarding the future of our company. Effective immediately, Joey Cuellar will no longer be involved with Evo in any capacity. We are currently working towards his complete separation from the company and have relieved him of all his responsibilities.

Evo’s full Statement

I’m starting to understand Ninjala a bit more

Wonderful 101 costs more in the UK.

A number of our UK backers have informed us that they’ve had additional taxes applied when receiving their packages. Although possible methods of alleviating this were considered, the tariff duties for different countries can be very strict and we made sure to comply with all corresponding legal restrictions. We are sorry for the additional charges, but it is clearly stated in the FAQ on the Kickstarter page that all physical rewards are shipped out from the United States, and that any applicable VAT or regional tariffs would be paid by backers.

The House of Lords call loot boxes gambling!

The government must act immediately to bring loot boxes within the remit of gambling legislation and regulation….There is academic research which proves that there is a connection, though not necessarily a causal link, between loot box spending and problem gambling

The official translation

  • Thoughts on Cross code
    • Early Game
    • Reminds me of Phantasy Star in its presentation
    • Game takes place in an MMO you play as an avatar of a player that doesn’t have any memories.
    • Action attack / dodge / ranged attacks with projectiles that bounce around (used for combat as well as puzzle elements)
    • Longer you aim the better the aim gets
