Dedicated servers aren’t the be-all and end-all

Destiny 2’s debut last week got a mixed reception, but one thing that disappointed everybody was the confirmation from developer Bungie that the game will not use dedicated servers.
When Destiny 2 was announced last week, everyone was happy that the PC version would be hosted on 'Battle.NET', but the cheers quickly turned into rage when it was discovered that 'dedicated servers' would not be used, that it would still be mainly peer-to-peer, but now Bungie has issued a statement to try to clarify what they meant, and that it will be a better in the end overall for PC gamers.

WARNING: PLEASE KEEP YOUR MODDED NINTENDO 3DS HANDHELD OFFLINE FOR NOW!

This week, 3DS hacking communities are clamoring over a so-called “ban wave” that permanently knocks systems offline.
Once the 'ban wave' news started spreading like wildfire across the 'scene forums', Nintendo issued the following statement to Kotaku:
But, right now people with 3DS's banned are still trying to pinpoint down what big 'N' is now looking for, is it CFW like Luma, is it using FreeShop, it is converted 3DA to CIA, is it converted GW saves, no one knows for sure what the 'triggerpoint' is right...

And its creator wants Nintendo to see it!

Arms isn’t out until June 16, but it’s already got an active fandom. If you need proof, here it is: Someone’s already gone ahead and made a 2D remake of it, called Arms2d.
That was fast, and it will not last long, as Nintendo loves to issue 'takedown' on fan games, but the creator wants that to occur! :)

Nintendo shares hit 8-year high

Nintendo shares rallied over 5 percent on Friday, hitting a more than eight-and-a-half-year high after major game maker Capcom announced a popular game would be coming to the Switch, with investors hoping this will help sales of the gaming giant's flagship console.
Capcom before stated that it all depends on 'sales' of their exclusive version of Street Fighter, if they are going to invest into producing more Switch ports, but it seems that they will at least port over the popular 3DS version of Monster Hunter to the Switch hybrid, and that news has sent big 'N' shares soaring to new all-time highs, as investors hope it will take off and greatly increase Switch sales! :)

Presentation slides reveal more about the rumored crossover

Yesterday’s leak of the key art for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has led to more information about the still-unannounced Nintendo Switch turning up online.
It seems Ubisoft recently had a closed door presentation of their upcoming Switch game which will 'feature' Mario inside the Rabbids world, and of course the 'slides' leaked right away, and it at least helps to confirm the many rumors that game is real, but it leaves us with new questions about the gameplay itself, and how it all works out, and how much Nintendo has in their say in its overall design.

Some are calling it the 'Pandora' of the 3DS era!

Back in the day, the original Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) was basically cracked wide-open once the Pandora battery was found, and clever modders at the time discovered a way to convert normal PSP batteries into Pandora ones, now its the Classic O3DS turn!
Recently, SIGHAX and Boot9Strap was released, but @SciresM (one of those that outlined Signax at 33c3), has decided to recent a few clues on what the next exploit step can be done on the 3DS, and it so far only works on the older Classic O3DS models (before the updated Newer/Faster N3DS ones), basically it works by using a physical Magnet to trick the lid switch until thinking your 3DS is closed still, and then you press and hold a few buttons, and the 3DS boots-up into special factory mode bypassing all security checks/firmware and loads the special ARM code you have crafted from an...
