bug

One of the reasons games get delayed is usually to iron out possible bugs that hinder the player experience. Sonic Mania’s PC port got delayed for that specific reason and we are seeing the consequences of the consoles who got the port earlier. With a non-threatening but still dangerous bug that came by to ruin the experience to some players.

Soft-locking Bug in Sonic’s return to platformers?

The Nintendo Switch version of Sonic’s return to classic platforming has been subject to bugs. Because of this, some users have already taken to places like Twitter to report on them. The issue is while playing the game in portable mode, there’s a delay (or in some cases, no response) sometimes when using the screen capture feature or pressing the home button.

In other words, it’s a slight case of soft-locking exclusive to the Nintendo Switch port of Sonic Mania, however. While many players are willing to call in doom and gloom for the franchise because of one bug. I am actually more calm about it because it’s not necessarily game breaking.

Not only that, but Christian Whitehead has already taken to Twitter to respond to the multiple reports of the bug. So it’s only a matter of time before this bug is completely gone and people continue enjoying their time with the adventures of the blue hedgehog. I can only hope that no more problems like this show up in the future in any other console.

Now, there are going to be some people who will make a huge deal out of this. I can tell you that much, sometimes ports of games come with some bugs that break their games (We have seen that a lot in the Switch too). But in the case of Sonic Mania, it isn’t that big of a deal yet.

What I like the most was how Christian responded to the first sign of a problem with a swift “Don’t worry, we got this”. It’s things like these that give a better impression of a developer instead of just doing a damage control. Oh well, PC users will continue to wait.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
