Street Fighter V

The Street Fighter V beta period will soon be open for those lucky enough to be selected as beta testers. Capcom announced the beta at E3, but now they’ve fully outlined how to get into being a Street Fighter V beta tester. It differs across regions, so here’s the full list.

North America

If you’re in North America (USA and Canada) and want to be a Street Fighter V beta tester, you’ll need to preorder the game from one of the following retailers:

  • Gamestop
  • Amazon
  • Bestbuy
  • Playstation Network

When you buy the game, you’ll need to fill in your details so an email can be sent to you from July 20. The exception is the Playstation Network, in which case you’ll automatically be able to download the beta from July 20.

Latin America

Latin American players can only get access to the Street Fighter V beta by preordering the game through the Playstation Network. As mentioned above, that will grant you automatic access to the beta from July 20.

Asia

Asian players will have to download the Street Fighter V Closed Beta Test Ticket from the Playstation Store. Applications are only open to Playstation Plus members and must be done by July 14. Those successful will get an email on July 21. The exception is Japan, which must follow the same process but one day in advance – so submit your application by July 13.

Europe (and the rest of the world)

The European process covers not just Europe, but Australia, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, and pretty much everywhere else. Users in these regions won’t get access to the beta by preordering the game. Instead, you’ll have to go to this link on the Playstation Network to sign up. You can register before July 15, but it’s not clear how many people will be selected. Those who are successful should get an email on July 23.

Capcom gives a list of which countries fall under which regions here.

Amazon’s great Fallout TV show is nominated for 16 Emmys

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
