Super Smash Bros. Cut the Cutscenes

Another Castle

It seems the magic of the internet really ruined yet another “something” many gamers looked forward to for the next generation. Creator of Super Smash Bros. Masahiro Sakurai took it upon himself to indulge Smash Bros. fans about what to expect for the next installment on the Wii U, in his bi-weekly Weekly Famitsu column.

The devil was in the details for sure, as the main point that seems to have resonated very clearly is that Youtube and players who have uploaded the CG cutscenes from the game have forced the creator’s hand:

“Unfortunately, the movie scenes we worked hard to create were uploaded onto the internet. You can only truly wow a player the first time he sees [a cutscene]. I felt if players saw the cutscenes outside of the game, they would no longer serve as rewards for playing the game, so I’ve decided against having them.”

Xbox One Prepares for Next Great Flip-Flop

Another Castle

According to a recent report from Game Informer, Xbox One will be making another huge flip-flop from its initial policies. We’ve explored in the past how their original policy could have really hurt the Indie and smaller developers, with games such as Day Z taking a strong stance against the platform. As it currently stands, independent developers will have to partner up with a larger publisher in order to sell their titles on the One. Forcing them to share a cut of their profits and adding up to large fees.

Speculation suggests that perhaps this policy change is in part to Sony’s new stance which encourages and streamlines the process of Indie publishing for the PS4. During their E3 presentation, Sony even went the extra mile allowing a plethora of Indie developers to take the stage and share what they were in the process of creating.

‘Arkham Origins’ Announce Mad Hatter and Copperhead

Another Castle

Copperhead was announced during the San Diego Comic Convention on July 18, and now the Mad Hatter has been announced to make his way back onto the Batman villain roster on July 23. Sub-villains the likes of these offer a lot of fandom despite their traditionally smaller roles in the DC Universe. Now Rocksteady plans to enhance all of that in Batman: Arkham Origins, due to release this October 25th.

Copperhead was reimagined much like other femme villains in the franchise. Stripped of her reptilian DNA she’s sporting a rather sexy get-up with claws the likes of even Street Fighter’s Vega would envy, as they are laced with poison. Shown during the presentation to be threatening Batman interrogation style with her talons, she certainly looks like a force to be reckoned with, within the lunatic infested world of Batman: Arkham Origins.

The Mad Hatter, while having made…
