Game News: Politician Used Campaign Funds to Buy Games and a Zelda Fan Tribute is Shut Down

Republican Used Campaign Funds to Buy Games:

A California congressman by the name of Duncan D. Hunter is being questioned by the Federal Election Commission for using his campaign funds to buy video games. On 68 separate occasions he collectively spent over $1,300 on games via Steam. Hunter listed $1,302 worth of video games on a campaign finance disclosure form as a "personal expense — to be paid back," but has yet to do so.

A spokesman claims Hunter's teenage son was given his father's credit card to buy one game, but ended up making several unauthorized charges. They are trying to get the charges refunded before repaying the account.



3D Zelda Fan Tribute Shut Down:

In anticipation of the Zelda franchise’s 30th anniversary, the folks over at Zelda30Tribute have been replicating the original Zelda game in voxels and would have allowed everyone to play it via web browser.


Three dungeons had already been completed when the creators, Scott Lininger and Mike Magee, shut the project down at the request of Nintendo. The two left a message on their website expressing no hard feelings against Nintendo:

"Nintendo asked us to remove this site for copyright infringement. I guess Zelda30Tribute was a little too pixel perfect We’re sad about that, but we get it. We started this project because we love Nintendo and the joy they have given us throughout the years. From the start of development, we knew this result could potentially happen. Nintendo has every right to protect their IP. No complaints from us, we had a blast working on this tribute and made some friends along the way."

Final Fantasy VII Remake:

A while back, game director Tetsuya Nomura said that the Final Fantasy VII remake will be split into multiple episodes. Square-Enix clarified that the game will not be episodic, but will be released in multiple parts as full game releases, similar to what they did with Final Fantasy XIII. They did not say how many parts they plan to release.

Game News: Upgradeable Consoles and a Plethora of Final Fantasy XV Content

Upgradeable Consoles:

Xbox One:

A while back Phil Spencer made some baffling comments about the Xbox One being upgradeable in the future. After a week of silence Spencer has finally clarified that the Xbox One won’t be going modular like a PC, stating:

"The feedback I’ve received about, ‘Hey, am I going to break open my console and start upgrading individual pieces of my console?’ That’s not our plan. Not having to build and upgrade the damn thing yourself but having it “just work” is what makes consoles “special”."

He clarified that the upgrades he mentioned would be backwards compatibility or something like Sony’s support of virtual reality with the PlayStationVR.




PlayStation 4.5:

Reports say that Sony is planning to announce the release of a more powerful PS4, known as the PlayStation 4.5 or PlayStation 4K, prior to the launch of the PlayStation VR this October. The upgraded PS4 will reportedly have enhanced graphics and power, as well as the ability to play 4K resolution content.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Sony will continue to manufacture the existing PS4 as well as its more powerful successor. Games that come out will work on both pieces of hardware. Let's hope we don't get another Sega 32X scenario.



Final Fantasy XV:

Final Fantasy XV has officially received a release date of September 30, 2016.



A companion game to Final Fantasy XV, entitled Platinum Demo - Final Fantasy XV, was made available as a free download on the PS4. Despite the name this is not a demo, but a full and unique game featuring a young Noctis within his dreams.



A five episode anime called Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV will be available to view for free on YouTube. Below is the first episode.



And lastly a full-length film entitled Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV was announced. It is directed by Takeshi Nozue and will be available digitally worldwide before the game's launch in September. The film was originally claimed by Square-Enix to be a CG film, but they have since stated that it is in fact live action.



Final Fantasy XI:

The servers for Final Fantasy XI were permanently shut down for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2 on March 31, 2016. The PC version continues. Final Fantasy XI first launched in Japan in 2002 on PC and PS2.

Did you visit my www.kobudovenlo.nl? It has game info
mb
Time for another update from me! With more admins posting news updates, I have less to cover. So thank you for that!

Business/Construction theme
We've expanded the Business theme to Business/Construction to include the place city/town building games in.
There still might be a number of games with currently only theme "Other" which now should be labelled "Business/Construction". I trust my fellow VGGeeks to find and correct those!

Hall of Fame updated
page: Hall of Fame
I recalculated the list of Ultimate VGG Uploader microbadge owners. HUGES CHANGES
First off, a great applause for Forbidding. In the last months since my previous update, Forbidding added another 1000.9 points widening the gap to the #2 to a stunning 1460 points! 1000.9 points in a few months! That's enough to get you in the Hall of Fame, when you start at zero!
Frumpish also did great, increasing a place in the ranking and becoming the new #2, by adding 247.75 to his score.
Andrewhodkinson managed to rise 3 places, becoming the new #4, by adding 206.75.
LostDice added another 26.25 but had to give up a place, due to andrewhodkinson's run. Now at #6
Sirjeyhmis added 86.45 points, enough to rise 2 spots, to #7
These were all the HOFamers which increased in score more than 25 points.

kidsplinter and jgoyes now have new company: Bryce is now also a Herculean microbadge holder. Which one of these three will enter the Hall of Fame first? Or will we be surprised by a newcomer, suddenly amassing 1000 points, like Forbidding just did?...

Dark Souls III Release:

As is the norm, notable streamers and YouTubers were provided early access to Dark Souls III. However PlayStaion 4 owners have found that they can purchase the Japanese version of the game, which launched on March 24 ahead of the April 12 North American release. If you purchase the game on the Xbox One it comes with the English subtitles from the Japanese release.



Digital Homicide Sues Jim Sterling:

The infamous "indie developer", Digital Homicide, has filed a lawsuit against YouTuber Jim Sterling for "assault, libel, and slander" to the tune of $10 million ($2.26 million in direct product damage/$4.3 million in emotional, reputational, and financial distress/$5 million in punitive damage requests).

Digital Homicide puts out several games a year, but is best known for their first title, The Slaughtering Grounds - the game that initially sparked the feud between Homicide and Sterling. The two have a long and bitter history resulting from Homicide's public disapproval and controversial censorship of Sterling's video reviews, in which Sterling claims Homicide's games to be of poor overall quality, lacking in artistic integrity, and there being an absence of any original non-Unity bought assets.

Digital Homicide claims Sterling "falsely accused [Digital Homicide] and caused damage" to the company. They started up a KickStarter asking for crowdfunding support to aid in their lawsuit. The KickStarter page has since been taken down "due to harassers donating amounts specifically to cause charges rather than donations and charge backs to cause financial fees." Digital Homicide has stated that they "will be seeking another avenue for donations".



ARK: Survival Evolved Lawsuit:

The lawsuits continue with Trendy Entertainment, makers of Dungeon Defenders, filing a lawsuit against Studio Wildcard. Trendy’s lawyers allege that the former creative director of the company, Jeremy Stieglitz, violated contractual agreements "not to solicit Trendy employees" or compete with his former company.

Trendy claims that Stieglitz breached his contract by working on ARK: Survival Evolved in secrecy since he resigned from his position in 2014 and that it "had a devastating impact on Trendy’s business" in addition to "directly competing with Dungeon Defenders both for players and developer talent." They have filed for "injunctive relief and damages" in the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Florida. If granted, the injunction could temporarily halt development on Ark: Survival Evolved or force Wildcard to pull the game from Steam. Studio Wildcard has asked the court to dismiss Trendy’s allegations, calling them "irrelevant, immaterial, impertinent, and scandalous."
