Splatoon

Even though Splatoon, the new third person shooter game now available on Wii U in all regions, has only been released less than a week ago in all regions, some new updates have already been made available, introducing a variety of fixes and new features. The first Splatoon update introduced the new map Port Mackerel and the Ranked Battle mode for level 10 and up players, further expanding the engaging experience of the game.

A few hours ago another new Splatoon update has been made available in all regions. As it often is with Nintendo, details on the patch are really scarce, with the Nintendo Support page only mentioning  a variety of adjustments that will make the experience more enjoyable. This update is also required for online play so the introduced changes should effect the online modes as well.

Even though Splatoon’s main draw is in its multiplayer modes, the game also comes with an interesting single player mode that offers more than just the frenetic shooting action of the online multiplayer mode. The single player mode include several stages filled with simple puzzles to solve, some platforming action and even some collectibles to find. Among the collectibles are the Sunken Scrolls, lost pages that depict the history and lore of Inkopolis. Some of these scrolls are really hilarious so make sure to not miss them if you enjoy the game’s wacky world and characters.

Splatoon is now available in all regions exclusively on Wii U. A Wii U console bundle including a copy of the game and Nintendo Land has also been released last week in North America. If you haven’t been following the game and want to learn more about Nintendo’s take on the third person shooter genre, you can check out some gameplay videos and more by going here.

Stellar Blade is an exceptionally aesthetically pleasing game, and we are not solely referring to the attractiveness of the protagonist, Eve, and her various outfits. The campaign features several visually captivating moments, which is customary for major PS5 titles, and fans are eager to capture them all. Thankfully, the developer Shift Up is currently working diligently on a Photo Mode, which is expected to be the next significant addition to the game after the recent Boss Challenge update.

Director Kim Hyung-Tae informed the Japanese magazine Famitsu that his team is diligently working on the feature at maximum efficiency, aiming to surpass expectations with its implementation. “Regrettably, immediate delivery is not possible; however, we are keen on implementing it,” he stated. “If we decide to proceed with the implementation, we are committed to ensuring that it is of excellent quality. Therefore, we are currently engaged in the process and kindly request your patience for a short period of time.”

Photo modes have experienced a surge in popularity over the last ten years, with inFAMOUS: Second Son being the pioneering game to introduce this feature. These modes enable you to temporarily suspend the progression of time, granting you the ability to precisely capture and structure gameplay according to your preferences. Subsequently, you have the option to incorporate a multitude of effects and filters to customize your images.

According to Swen Vincke, the founder and CEO of Larian Studios, the level of crunch on Baldur’s Gate 3 was lower compared to their previous games like Divinity: Original Sin 2. Crunch, also known as “crunch culture”, refers to the overtime that many developers are often expected to work when production deadlines are approaching.

According to GamesRadar+, Vincke was questioned about the challenges that emerged during the game’s extensive development and whether the studio had to work under intense pressure. Vincke mentioned that they are investing less in BG3 compared to their previous projects. We definitely did. We encountered unforeseen events.

Vincke highlights Larian’s global studio setup as a method through which the developer alleviated the pressure. This structure was established to guarantee round-the-clock coverage, specifically designed to prevent individuals from having to put in additional effort to resolve late-night issues. The Belgian developer has expanded its reach by opening a seventh office in Poland.

According to Vincke, employees who had to work long hours were compensated with overtime pay. He also mentioned that after 8pm, the offices would be nearly empty, and weekend work was a rare occurrence at the studio. Expanding on the topic, he clarifies: “We didn’t excessively push ourselves, but we did have to put in some extra effort.” And I believe, honestly, there will always be a sense of anticipation when you’re working towards completing a project, particularly when there are numerous intricate elements that need to be integrated.

Did you know that the development of Baldur’s Gate 3, with its immense size and scope, involved developers working tirelessly to meet the deadline? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
