Cawthon says now with the plans for #6 in the series gone, he hopes to be now able to rediscover the joy of game development at later date and for now just spend more time with his family that had thought they lost a dad to the world of game development during the very popular run that his Five Nights at Freddy's had and still is having with a very loyal following that is now upset that #6 is no longer coming out.

Chinese video game and internet giant Tencent will start imposing time restrictions on young Honor of Kings players to allay fears surrounding video game addiction.

For a while video gaming console have 'parental controls' on them that parents of course are welcome to use to control their kids playing time, but in today's new era of 'mobile gaming', there is really no control for a parent to enforce a time limit on playing mobile games, while their child is out at school and elsewhere, and these days no kid lives without a decent smartphone, as such one of the biggest mobile gaming companies 'Tencent' has decided to enforce different 'time limits' depending on the age group of youth playing.

Says Ex-Sony And Microsoft Exec

BlackFinVitaMicroSD.jpg
Set of tools to run PS Vita game dumps from SD card or from binary image, have been published by Motoharu on GITHub.

Of course Cobra BlackFin for Vita was the first product to do so, but it was never updated for newer firmwares and being commerical it was of course not open-sourced, but Motoharu a long time ago reserve-engineered most of BlackFin and designed a hardware adapter and code to dump the PS Vita games themselves directly from their Gamecard, and now recently XYZ demoed a working PoC of running an microSD as Vita gamecard with a rough adapter, and since then Motoharu has published all his dumping info and codes.

Still (Alpha/Proof of Concept), but now with Old3DS support!

Nintendo Scene Developers HiddenRambler has released his PoC but working Alpha build v0.3 called Thenaya which is an homebrew app that can program Amiibo dump files onto blank NTAG215 tags, making you brand new cloned/spoof/copied Amiibos.

It's basically the little sister of the original TagMo project, but now you no longer need a PC or Android phone to do it, all possible just from your Nintendo 3DS itself.

After years of hunting, digging through the code and searching every inch of the game, GTA V fans have finally found life from beyond the stars.

Everyone loves Aliens right, and they for some reason been missing from Grand Theft Auto, but no longer, modders and hackers have found an 'easter egg' of sorts or in this case an 'alien egg', and it seems to be some sort of upcoming UFO Crashing into Los Santos mission, all tho its not officially available, GTA modders were able to tweak the 'code variables' to get parts of it to be playable! :)

The-rise-of-esports.jpg
If we were to travel back twenty years in time and ask people about their favorite sport to watch, most would probably tell us about basketball, football and baseball. If we were to ask if they would ever watch video games, they would probably frown upon us and ask what that has to do with sports.
It just wasn't the time back then, but at lot has happened since, to say the least.

According to Newzoo, a market research company focused on games and eSports, the number of people that view competitive video games will reach 385 million this year. Even though we're comparing to a single event, this is more than three times as much as the number of people who watched the super bowl. Not only that, but we've reached a point in time where some competitive eSport tournaments have way higher prize pools than tournaments in traditional sports, making the players in the teams millionaires from playing games....

VIDEO PROOF-OF-CONCEPT ONLY!
No plans currently for it to be released or crowdfunded!

Yifan Lu's idea to crowdfund an PlayStation 3G Vita to microSD Card Adapter has been so popular it already sold-out the extra 500 boards that he recently added to the IndieGoGo project page, and now we have an amazing new PoC video just released that shows its possible to convert the Vita GameCard port to be a microSD Adapter, as long as you can install custom modules via HenKaku or Enzo on your v3.60 handheld.

Updating the Firmware on Mayflash's Wii U Adapter makes it works on the Switch!

Pokken Tournament is coming out soon for the Nintendo Switch, and big 'N' are releasing official 'Pokken' controllers, but some would love to be able to use the older Nintendo GameCube controllers, and the official Wii U adapter does not work on the Switch, but companies like MayFlash have been in business for years making 'adapters' that convert one gaming system controller to another system, and all their adapters are flash firmware upgradable, and they have released a beta new firmware that now allows for partial support for their Nintendo Wii U Gamecube adapter, currently all 4 ports are only seen as the 1st player, but hopefully that will be fixed soon, along with support in more Switch games, but as you can seen the following videos at least it partially works for now to enjoy!
