Here we are at the start of yet another weekend. I don’t know about you, but I normally spend my weekends gaming, so if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably fallen behind on the latest news. Well, don’t worry. That’s what these raids are for. Today we learned that Ghost of Tsushima could be filmed in Japanese, Gotham City has 400 years of history in Gotham Knights, and the folks behind Sonic Omens have gone off the rails. There’s more where that came from, so read on for the rest.
Gotham City has 400 years of history in Gotham Knights
What gets me into a game is really good world building, so of course I’m looking forward to Gotham Knights. The place where the game takes place, Gotham City, apparently has 400 years of history. The Court of Owls, on the other hand, represents an all-new addition to the franchise. According to WB Games Montreal Creative Director Patrick Redding, “one of the things we love about The Court of Owls, other than it being a new addition to the Batman canon, is “is that they represent a threat so integrated, so intrinsic to Gotham City that Batman doesn’t even know about it. The notion of a threat so intimately tied to a city that he considers his city, that he knows off the cuff, that he’s been on patrol for literally decades at this point, it’s a very intimidating and scary idea.” Personally, I can’t wait to play this one.
Ghost Of Tsushima Director Wants The Film To Be Entirely In Japanese
Ghost of Tsushima the game was all about authenticity, so it’s no surprise to learn that Ghost of Tsushima the movie might just be in Japanese. “I think if we did it right, it would be visually stunning,” director Chad Stahleski said. “It’s character driven. He has an opportunity for a great action, a beautiful appearance. And honestly, we would try to do everything in character. Which means it’s a Japanese thing about the Mongols invading Tsushima Island. A full Japanese cast, in Japanese. Sony is so on board with supporting us on this. Sounds exciting.
Person who took PT off the list wishes things ‘happened differently’
PT became infamous not only for scaring players, but also for vanishing without a trace. The game was pulled from distribution without even a mention. Things, on the other hand, could have turned out very differently. “Fun fact,” said former Konami brand manager Pearl Lai. “Since I was the first head of the game at the time at Konami, I helped get this product up on the storefronts, fake editor and everything. And it was me who had to call Sony and asking them to take it down and block re-uploads. It was a super fun conversation. The developer went on to say that “believe me, I wish it had gone differently too.”
A thief hides $70,000 of stolen Pokémon cards from his mother
Someone was recently caught stealing Pokémon cards from a store in the UK called Magic Madhouse for around $70,000. When the jig was finally lifted, their secret hideout, Mom’s house, was raided by the police and all of their ill-gotten possessions seized. “He would take the cards out of the boxes and put them in his pocket,” Magic Madhouse owner Michael Duke said. “We didn’t have CCTV on the premises at the time, so if he was isolated he used that as an opportunity to grab things.” The situation quickly escalated to the point that when the police began to search the residence, “there were cards everywhere, everywhere in the house. In the living room, the kitchen, everywhere.
Sonic Omens Devs Reportedly Paid Previews Via Patreon, Stolen Cars 2 Music, And Sexualized Maria
The folks working on Sonic Omens have seemingly gone off the rails, paying for all sorts of content, stealing music, and making controversial character changes. “They have been involved in harassment, paying previews of Sonic Omens behind Patreon and a Russian equivalent of Patreon,” whistleblower Farkle said in a lengthy statement. “The project also stole the music from Cars 2: The Video Game and they’re spreading lies about the past drama.” The fan game seems to be dead in the water at this point.
