Atlus changes and apologizes for Persona 5’s streaming guidelines

Players that were playing the game " Persona 5" now can be a bit at ease and are now able to stream the game a bit longer without the " Atlus Retribution." The publisher decided to change the original video guidelines for the game, laying them out on a blog post while also adding onto the blog post a great apology to anyone who felt threatened by the previous rules.

"We recognize that our fans are the reason why the game is the major worldwide success it is, and we continue to want them to be able to enjoy the game without fear of being spoiled,” said Atlus. “Because we want to give players the most access to the game while respecting the original goal, we’re now asking players to refrain from streaming or posting video past the end of the in-game date of 11/19 — when the main story gears up for the final act.”

Atlus felt that if people streamed the game too early, it would hurt the experience for other newer players or become more of a spoiler to the story. The publisher was wary of coming off as too heavy handed with the guidelines they created.

“We want to be transparent about what we do, and the reason we released the guidelines was to give streamers the right information up front,” the publisher explained. “It was never our intention to threaten people with copyright strikes, but we clearly chose the wrong tone for how to communicate this.”

The Playstation 4 Share feature still won't work with Persona 5 even with the guidelines revised.

Phantasy Star Online the will never die!

About 9 years ago. Sega officially killed Phantasy Star online for good and shutting down its last remaining servers for Windows and Xbox in the US. Then the year before ,Sega shut down the GameCube and Dreamcast PSO Ver.2 servers. This was all the way back to 2004 and a groundbreaking online console game infested with hackers who learn to kill others players in a co-op MMO...and everything went dark for the long living mmo. 

Phantasy Star Online refused to be unplugged forever

I have had nostalgia about Phantasy Star online. It gave me something to play, meet online people, group up in teams, taking long adventures/quest and creating new weaponry. Phantasy Star Online has a story to everyone's heart for those that love Sci-fi to those that have played .hack and wanted to play a game like that with friends! 

The reasons why PSO will never die is the PSO's code is old enough, simple enough to understand and malleable than more complex MMOs, and with serverse alive like Ephinea and Ultimate have changed the game, updated in small and large ways, giving a better ESP rate, adding new items , quest and special events to keep the players interested! 

I suggest if you want to play a good MMO and the server is still alive enough for you to play and gain tons of nostaglia, play with your friends and maybe have a new game to play on a daily basis then check it out!

Mass Effect Andromeda's Recent Patch Gives some Eye lift

BioWare's recent release of the highly-anticipated Mass Effect Andromeda was pretty rough one. The high expectations that fans set from looking at all of the trailers and alpha playtests shown by BioWare themselves has brought a lot into question about why there are a lot of weird issues.

With that said, there are a couple of things that are just downright weird or messed up. The main problem with it is the game is rigid and at certain times the very bad facial animations.

The facial animation of Andromeda was just so bad that it became an uproar to the fanbase also became a laughing stock to most of the internet.

The first major update since Mass Effect Andromeda's release on March 21. This patch improves some of the characters facial animations but makes a lot of improvements to everyone's eyes, now characters are looking into more believable living beings better than how they use to look.

Overwatch may get its own Map Editor

Ever wanted to have more map variety in Overwatch, your wish might have been granted and will probably be happy to learn that the head Game Director Jee Kaplan explained on the official "Overwatch " forums and quote.

We are extremely open-minded about releasing a map editor for Overwatch someday. But because Overwatch was made with a brand new engine, this is not a small task or one which can happen any time soon. We have this on our long-term road map and believe heavily in user-made content. But there are many challenges ahead of us and it will be a very long road before our editor can be made available to the public.

So we shouldn't expect it for a long while but that statement brings hope. Blizzard has a good history of supporting map editors, the most recent being Starcraft II and Kaplan also said and quote

Any news on saving play of the games or highlights without having to use external programs?

Yes. This will be live before the end of summer. It's being worked on right now.

For how there are a lot of possible things happening with Overwatch and who knows maybe at some point Overwatch might even launch on the Nintendo Switch from Kaplan.

“I’m loving the Switch! My second favorite gaming platform of all time is the 3DS. Getting OW on the Switch is very challenging for us. But we’re always open minded about exploring possible platforms.”

A lot of questions and a lot of possibilities but for now check out the new hero to the overwatch roster

Mass Effect Andromeda Character Creator and Animations..issue?

So Bioware is aware of the certain issues for Mass Effect Andromeda the past week or so about the primarily facial animations and character creation areas.

My Opinion on the subject: 

Yes, folks, the facial issues do have some problems here and there but this does happen do we need to remind everyone about Assassin's Creed Unity and their big glitch issue that just left the eyes and mouth.

 

The Lead Designer on Mass Effect Andromeda Ian S. Frazier on twitter last night answered a couple of questions from the public. Most of it circled around the facial animations and so far the answer and Quote

"We're looking at patching lots of issues and want to strongly support the game moving forward. I can't say more just yet."

Ian also talking about the character creator which has been called into question by the players but his answer for most of these questions

"No promises, but I've got it on a list of things we're looking at potentially fixing/adding for character creation."

Even though with these very minimal issues that the game has the game is still really good for its gameplay, new characters, and story!

BioWare Addresses the Feedback of Mass Effect Andromeda

Just last week, Bioware released Mass Effect Andromeda and they are already defending it to the fans of the series. There are a couple of problems with the game that has been frustrating a lot of gamers that are a fan of the Mass Effect Series with its awkward animations and the huge volume of glitches certainly hinder the experience.

Thankfully BioWare has heard the feedback from its fan base with a message from the lead producer, Mike Gamle put this update up responding from the mass comments and feedback.

It's been a week since we officially launched Mass Effect: Andromeda worldwide, and we couldn't be more excited that our fans are finally experiencing everything we've worked so hard to create."

"We've received quite a bit of feedback, some of it positive and some of it critical. That feedback is an important part of our ongoing support of the game, and we can't wait to share more of our immediate plans with you on Tuesday, April 4."

"In the meantime, keep your feedback coming. Our team is listening, working around the clock to gather information and plan out solutions to improve and build on Mass Effect: Andromeda."

Thanks for your continued support and for joining us on this journey"

Mass Effect Andromeda a bit under quality and what people expected for this but it is still a great RPG to own and it's still worth to own for your gaming collection.

No Man's Sky Update...is it worth it ??

So No Man's Sky created by a small company of Hello Games has created an update for the game that has had its gigantic disappointments. I mean in my honest opinion they should have done an early access for the game and worked from there but what's done is done. So the new update is supposed to fix a lot of things that was wrong with No Man's Sky 1.0 

Now the real question is " is it worth it? " I would have to say after the horrible reviews on it and the overwhelmingly negative comments for this game I think its worth a very small chance. 

Patch Updates for No Man's Sky 1.1 Founders Patch 

- Game Modes : Normal Mode, Creative Mode and Survival Mode

- Base Building Updated: Claim your own planet, Recruit Alien Lifeforms, Terminus Teleport in Space Stations to send you to your base of operations, and Expand storage containers.

These are just some example photos of the new things for your base.

- Farming has been updated with outdoor crops or even inside of your base. 

- Ten Types of new plants and resource elements

There are tons of more updates on their website ! Do you think you will give " No Man's Sky " one more look through and its on sale for 35$ on steam!
