Gamescom Nintendo 2018

Gamescom 2018 is set to kick off later this month, with plenty of games being announced and playable on the show floor. Now Nintendo has revealed their official games lineup for the event, with there being both big and small games playable.

The following Nintendo games will be playable on the Gamescom show floor:

  • Dark Souls Remastered
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ
  • FIFA 19
  • Killer Queen Black
  • Starlink: Battle for Atlas
  • Super Mario Party
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Along with these games being playable, the Nintendo UK YouTube Channel will offer deeper looks into already-announced games. These include the likes of Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country and Super Mario Party.

The following is a snippet from the announcement on nintendo.co.uk:

“Coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch on 5th October, Super Mario Party brings the original board game mode back to its roots as four players race across the board searching for Stars, taking advantage of deeper strategic additions like specific Dice Blocks for each character to use. Additional game modes, such as Toad’s Rec Room that pairs up two Nintendo Switch consoles, plus the Online Mariothon minigame gauntlet, make this one party where everyone can enjoy themselves, and visitors to Nintendo’s booth in Hall 9 can try out five of the new minigames themselves as a taster of the fun that awaits.”

Gamescom 2018 will run from August 21st to 25th in Cologne, Germany.

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.
