Last summer a quick five minute video for a JRPG-looking title exploded the internet. Lost Soul Aside appeared to be something straight out of Square Enix’s vault in looks, world, and combat. Then we discovered that this alpha footage was created and assembled by one man! Yes, only one! Last we heard on the endeavor, developer Yang Bing was contacted by a few publishers and Lost Soul Aside was getting a full development team behind it.

Now nearly a year later, details and a nicely looking website have presented themselves. Specifically with the story. Turns out the plot is pretty simple in nature and in a good way. It focuses on two countries at war before the end of it signaled the appearance of blood-thirsty monsters. One of which happens to be the companion to our main character you’ve seen in all the video footage.

Ten years ago, there was a war between two countries. A few years after the war ended, unknown monsters began to emerge and slaughter the humans. As leader of the Royal Knight, Kazer had a blessed family, but it was shattered by the arrival of the monsters. After a chance meeting, Kazer began traveling with the monster known as Arena

Lost Soul Aside’s website also provided a few other tidbits. The game and its exploration will be refined to an fantasy open world with smooth and challenging combat and stylish, graceful visual performances. You can check out all the new revelations both here and here. No information was given on a release date, but we’re not expecting one for some time. If you were one of the few who missed the internet melting announcement video, you can see it yourself below.

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.

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.
