  1. Today, Nintendo released a tweet to announce a new Dr. Mario game for mobile devices titled Dr. Mario World. The Dr. Mario franchise helped pave the way for the massive popularity of match 3 games with its fast-paced puzzle gameplay inspired by Tetris. The prospect of Dr. Mario's addictive gameplay making its way onto phones is certainly something that has a lot of long-time fans excited. Dr. Mario has been one of the more overlooked of Nintendo's core series. The puzzle spin-off of Mario got its start back in 1990 on the NES with Dr. Mario and has received a total of seven entries. The last Dr. Mario game was Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure for the Nintendo 3DS back in 2015. The announcement states that Nintendo will be teaming up with Disney Tsum Tsum mobile developer Line Corporation to create Dr. Mario World. Disney Tsum Tsum was one of the top grossing mobile games of 2015 and was based on a line of Japanese plushies of Disney characters. Dr. Mario World will release in early summer 2019 and will be free for everyone, though it will include microtransactions. It releases for iOS and Android devices in 60 countries including Japan and the United States. The game will be co-developed/published with NHN Entertainment Corporation, a South Korean company that has had a hand in creating games like Tera and the the Kingsman: The Golden Circle puzzle game for mobile devices. Dr. Mario World represents Nintendo's further development of its burgeoning mobile market. The decision to begin partnering with other companies to create mobile games based on their popular franchises they made back in 2016 has proven to be a colossally lucrative one for the big N. We can only expect this trend to accelerate as it continues into the foreseeable future.

  3. Hello fellow Guild Members, As it's March, we are in a new year of guild recruitment and leadership. Sadly Chris Hayes (@CmdrSmushy) is resigning as Guild Vice President, due to his life becoming more hectic with work and life events. Chris will still maintain a strong relationship with The Guild. Tony Pileggi (@TonyPil) and myself, Thaine Rowley (@LIquid-), will be remaining as Guild President and Guild Secretary, respectively. We are welcoming Joseph Morris (@Jmorris411) as the new Vice President! A few words from the Officers: Tony Pileggi (@TonyPil): Chris Hayes (@ChrisHayes): Would like to address the Guild in person, at the meeting on April 6th, 2017. Thaine Rowley (@LIquid-): Joseph Morris (@Jmorris411):
  4. The teaser site reported last week has finally gone live and a new Star Ocean is on its way to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. A trailer exploring the history of the franchise and teasing its future has also appeared and you can view it below: While the trailer doesn't tell us much beyond the title of the next game, a leak in Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, the prologue translated by Kotaku, offers more insight into what Star Ocean 5 will be about: Do the depths of space forbid peace for mankind— Centuries after leaving Earth, after a multitude of trials, with the creation and spread of the ‘Galactic Federation’, humanity was on the verge of unified order and peace. But the embers of conflict have begun to burn again. Over 6,000 light years from Earth, on the unsettled planet, ‘Faicreed.’ Just as so many times before, the waves of history begin from a remote planet. According to Gematsu, three characters were revealed in the Famitsu leak as well. The protagonist of Integrity and Faithlessness will be Fedel Camus, a defender of his village and specialized fencer. Miki Sorvesta is Fedel's childhood friend and has a sisterly affection for the hero. Finally, there is Lilia, a young girl who has lost her memories and emotions. Like previous entries in the Star Ocean series, combat will take place in real-time. Integrity and Faithlessness will offer seamless transitions into and out of battles. While Star Ocean 5 is coming to PlayStation 4, it has primarily been developed for PlayStation 3 and the PS4 version will be a port that may or may not take advantage of Share play features. No word yet on when we could expect to see Star Ocean 5 release in North America. Longtime fans will be happy to know that series developer tri-Ace is helming this next installment, so we can be reasonably sure that the project is in capable hands. View full article

  6. Valve's countdown has reached its conclusion and their announcement is *drumroll* a new, free operating system tailored for living room machines. SteamOS combines Linux and Steam into one super OS that exists in your living room. The basic concept of the operating system seems to be that it can operate on "any living room machine" and works to stream games, movies, television, music, etc. from your current Steam library to your television. This means that Valve will soon be adding the ability to purchase music, movies, and television shows to the Steam marketplace in addition to video games. The entire Steam library will be compatible with SteamOS, including all user-created content. Even user's friends lists will make the jump to the new operating system. As a result of a dedicated OS, Valve reports that they have, "achieved significant performance increases in graphics processing, and we’re now targeting audio performance and reductions in input latency at the operating system level." This seems to imply that less powerful devices could run more powerful games while running SteamOS. Besides allowing users to stream their entertainment library to their television, the new OS will allow users to create family accounts for their Steam. On paper, this will allow families to easily share their games among their household with separate achievement tracking and permissions for each family member. Don't want little Timmy to be playing Metro: Last Light? BOOM, that content is restricted from his family account. Tired of your significant other nabbing those achievements before you do? BAM, you both have separate accounts for the same library. The Steam Cloud allows for users to carry over their saved progress from their main machine to their living room, provides storage, and automatic updates on everything. According to Valve, the operating system will be free forever and will be available, licensing free, to hardware manufacturers. There are still many unanswered questions regarding SteamOS. Just what Valve means by "any living room machine" isn't clear quite yet. Does that mean I can download SteamOS onto a PS4 or Xbox One? Or will it require a dedicated living room PC? How much storage does the Steam Cloud provide? Exactly when will the SteamOS launch? When will Steam be opening their market for movies and music? Also, what is with the second countdown that began after the SteamOS announcement? I guess we will find out when the timer reaches zero on Wednesday. Until then, let dreams of a free Steam operating system that runs on your television dance in your head. You can read the full announcement here. View full article
