    According to Eurogamer, anonymous sources close to Nintendo have confirmed that the company will be releasing a Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic, similar to the miniature NES Classic that was recently discontinued. Those same sources say that this miniaturized SNES has been scheduled for release this holiday season. This report also reveals the reason for the sudden discontinuation of the NES Classic despite continuing high demand for the micro-console. Nintendo never expected it to do all that well. They planned to produce enough to satisfy those who would buy it as a novelty. Instead, demand far outpaced their expectations, leading to an extended production schedule and plans for the SNES Classic. The production of the SNES Classic, sources claim, is what caused the discontinuation of the NES Classic. This entire story hinges on Eurogamer's sources being accurate, so take it with a grain of salt. We'll update the story to let you know if Nintendo contradicts what the sources have said. That being said, this would be an awesome move that could see a fever-pitch of fan demand. The NES was certainly iconic, but the SNES library is tough to beat for quality and quantity. Depending on what games Nintendo puts on the plug-in console, there could be stampedes for the SNES Classic. If this turns out to be true, we will likely hear about it during E3 in June.

    You know what? I'll come right out and say it - we don't see nearly enough vampire games. BloodRayne, Vampire Rain, Vampire: The Masquerade, Castlevania, all of them star or feature vampires, but they often fall short of being something that truly lives up to the vampires of legend. That might be changing with Vampyr on the horizon and now Project Vein. Project Vein comes courtesy of Bandai Namco, the publisher of the Dark Souls series. The slickly animated teaser trailer holds a number of tantalizing details about what the game itself could hold. It seemingly stars a lady vampire who is hunting other vampires or occult creatures. The main character seems to be wielding a rifle with a bayonet attachment that serves as both a melee weapon and a ranged weapon, something imported from Bloodborne's similar hybrid combat. Players will also be able to make use of AI companions to help them in battle. In the world of Project Vein, vampires are called Revenants and they have great power. Unfortunately, the process of becoming a Revenant strips these powerful beings of their memories. Together they live as part of a society called Vein. The tagline, "Prepare to dine," seems to imply that blood will perhaps serve as the Souls-like currency of leveling up. Revenants need blood to avoid the fate of becoming a Lost, a savage creature that has discarded its humanity. Perhaps our heroine has a duty to hunt these Lost creatures? According to translations by Gematsu of the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Project Vein is described by Bandai Namco as a "dungeon exploration-type, hard action RPG." Namco Bandai has put one of their most successful teams, the one behind the God Eater series, onto Project Vein. Project Vein is still far from being finished. It's roughly estimated to be only 30% complete and people shouldn't hope for it to be done by the end of this year. It will likely release at the tail end of 2018. Here's hoping it doesn't go the way of many cool vampire projects like the cancelled PS3 title Harker.

    StarCraft received its first update in eight years today. The patch added a number of quality of life upgrades, like windowed fullscreen and windowed modes, improvements to matchmaking, game replay autosaves, new anti-cheating measures, and a number of compatibility fixes for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10. Oh, and the entirety of StarCraft and its expansion, Brood War, are now free. This comes on the heels of last month's announcement that StarCraft would be getting a complete remaster. The reborn RTS classic will be getting a full graphical overhaul and offer 4K resolutions to PC fans and newcomers alike. If you've never played or lost your original StarCraft game, now seems like the perfect time to give the game that started eSports and catapulted Blizzard into ubiquity a shot. StarCraft Remastered will release sometime this Summer, but in the meantime you can download and play the StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War for free on PC and Mac. All you have to do is head over to the StarCraft site and scroll down a bit. View full article

    I love the ability to change it back to old school graphics. I wish more remasters offered that option. They did something similar with the Grim Fandango Remaster.

    Hello everyone, the moment you have all been waiting for,the PCKC Volunteer Schedule. I apologize for the delay, but we had a few technical difficulties, and I wanted to give you all time to ensure you had a chance to see what Panels you wanted to see. DO NOT FORGET: Mandatory volunteer training will be held on Thursday the 27th at 7PM to 9PM(ish) for Extra Life Staff at the Convention Center, please contact Sean or Lora if you cannot make this. This training will show you where to check in and where our booth is. This is a PCKC requirement, not Extra Life. Also, if you are not signed up to work for a day, you will not be getting a wristband for PCKC that day. We have also been asked to help out with head counts in the game room every other hour. Every Odd hour(11AM, 1PM, 3PM, etc) someone will just need to swing by the game room to do a count of how many people are playing games. This is to collect information for future Planet Entertainment Zone events, and to know peak hours. I will have a sheet at the booth to help track this. We will show you where the game room is during orientation. THINGS TO REMEMBER: *PCKC is busy, parking is going to be difficult and unless you are showing up at 9:00AM you may be parking a few blocks away. Please factor parking, check in and walking time into your commute. *If you need to change your schedule, please contact Sean Albillar via Email, Facebook or respond to this post as soon as possible. *Badges/Wristbands are only issued for days you volunteer and will need to be picked up from the Volunteer check in every day. *We require that all staff at the booth have Extra Life shirts on, or a well done cosplay to bring attention to the booth. However, I ask that you bring your Extra Life shirt regardless. *Food vouchers will be available and distributed by Sean Albillar *No small prizes for the BINGO Cards turned in, only the Raffle Prizes, which are a month to loot Crate, a $25 gift card to SoPro and a few other things. HERE IS THE SCHEDULE: FRIDAY SAT SUN Caleb Adegoke 3PM TO 7PM NOON TO 3:30PM 9AM TO 1PM Sean Albillar 11AM TO 3PM 9AM TO 1PM 9AM TO 1PM Laura Andrews 3:30PM TO 7PM 1PM TO 5PM Mike Andrews 3:30PM TO 7M 1PM TO 5PM Billy Bledsoe 3PM TO 6PM Jessie Bledsoe 3PM TO 6PM Brie Clemens 11AM TO 3PM 9AM TO 1PM 9AM TO 1PM Brigid Derby 3PM TO 7PM 9AM TO 1PM 9AM TO 1PM Ashley Finch 3:30PM TO 7PM 1PM TO 5PM David Finch 3:30PM TO 7PM 1PM TO 5PM Lori Glaspie 3PM TO 7PM NOON TO 3:30PM 9AM TO 1PM Rashida Merritt-Davis canceled Joseph Quijano 11AM TO 3PM 9AM TO 1PM JT Galloway 3PM TO 7PM NOON TO 3:30PM 11AM TO 3PM Spades Lunn NOON TO 4PM NOON TO 3:30PM canceled Thank you in advance for all your help!

    http://skillet.lifehacker.com/sneaky-philanthropy-dinner-parties-turn-a-night-with-1793167164 I saw this article today and thought it might be a good way to recruit as well as fund raise. The basic gist is you have a dinner party and ask that people contribute towards Extra Life what they would have spent going out to dinner. Throw in some before or after dinner board games and it might work well for recruitment as well. Has anyone here ever tried anything like this?
