Introduction

A Fold Apart is a puzzle game with nice colorful graphics and a story about "making it work".

a-fold-apart-pL0vtZGAz98.jpg

In A Fold Apart you fold the very fabric of existence to solve puzzles while the story progresses in between the puzzle sections.

fold.jpg

The story begins with our 2 protagonists, which recently became romantically involved.

After having spent an undefined amount of time together our blue protagonist gets a job offer in the city and so him/her moves out while leaving our orange protagonist behind...

They, of course, stay in contact and this is where the "hardships of long-distance relationships" theme comes into the picture.

As time goes on they find that things (feelings) don't translate well into text form...

Will you be able to "make it work"?

Gameplay

The puzzles themselves are very samey.

You can, fold and turn the level in different directions which does spice things up a bit.

The way this works is as follows, there will be obstacles in your path and by folding the level you can avoid them or create a path to the goal.

It is a noble concept but I feel that they could have tried to do more with it, at the same time maybe it's a good thing that mostly all you have to do is fold - since that mechanic is already hard to get a hang on.

In between levels you'll get these story sections where the main characters are texting each other, you can pick what message you want to send to the other character, this, however, doesn't seem to affect the story.

Music and sounds

The soundtrack is nice and peaceful...

I'd say it fits very well

The sound effects are also pretty good.

Nintendo confirms that around 160,000 Nintendo Accounts were illegally accessed


Hackers were able to see the nickname, email address, country, and birth date associated with the account, as well as make purchases with credit cards and PayPal accounts.

In order to address the issue, Nintendo has disabled the ability to access Nintendo Accounts using Nintendo Network IDs, and has reset the passwords of every Nintendo Account that might have been affected by the breach.

Furthermore, if you were using the same password for your Nintendo Account and your Nintendo Network ID, Nintendo says hackers would have been able to use whatever balance was remaining on your account as well as your registered credit/debit card or PayPal account to make purchases from the Nintendo Store and Nintendo eShop. If you find an unauthorized transaction on your account, get in touch with Nintendo to have the money refunded.

Nintendo says that hackers couldn’t actually access your credit card information, thankfully.

The root of the problem appears to be the Nintendo Network ID, if you don't have a Nintendo Network ID linked to your account then you should be fine but you should consider activating 2FA on your Nintendo account.
Super Mario Maker 2 is getting a new update, it will be called the World Maker Update

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is also getting a new update, it will be called the Nature and Art Update



Hatsune Miku Project Diva: Mega Mix releases May 15th in the US and Europe

The game contains a total of 101 songs.

The game was released in Japan earlier this year and has so far received a positive response from Japanese players.



Bandai announced via Twitter that Jump Force is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year



Jump Force is coming to Nintendo Switch in the shape of "Jump Force Deluxe".

Despite it having "deluxe" on the title, this version of the game will NOT include all the DLC, it will only include the first character pack.

Crysis is getting a Remaster and it is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and XB1

"BUT CAN THE SWITCH RUN CRYSIS?!"

Guess we'll find out soon.

Possible Data Breach at Nintendo

pilmr5wfm1kjdz0xldyp.png


Over the last month, many users have reported issues with their Nintendo Account, suspicious login attempts from places like Russia, France, and India have been plaguing Nintendo players.

The cause and origin of this supposed data breach is still unknown at the moment and Nintendo hasn't commented on the matter, we recommend people to enable 2FA on their account just in case.

Update on the situation:

it seems Nintendo is now investigating...​
Update: it seems that the new update is causing issues for some people, we advise people not to update until these issues have been fixed.

ps4-playstation-4-firmware-update-7-50.900x.png

https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/get-help/ps4-system-software/

A new firmware update for the PS4 just rolled out, this new update brings stability and better performance to the system, the update is just 450MB and aside from the usual "stability and performance" upgrades it doesn't seem to do a whole lot.

You can download the update via system settings, you will need to update if you wanna access the PSN store or if you wish to play online with your friends.

That's all for now.​

(even though this is not a review - that will come later)

These are just my first impressions from having played the closed beta of the game in handheld mode.

I am not going to sugar coat it, this is NOT good.

When I first saw the trailer for Vigor on the Nintendo Direct I thought it would be a singleplayer survival game.



Yeah, that's not what Vigor is, Vigor is a multiplayer survival game akin to a battle royal sort of game.

Why is that? well, you are thrown into a map with a bunch of other people, the objective is to gather as many resources as possible but most of the time people will try to kill you instead.

Capture.PNG

It also has many Battle Royal-like menus.

Aside from that, the resolution is extremely low in handheld mode, this is a closed beta and things are bound to change but the resolution does leave a lot to be desired at the moment, I can hardly see in some cases.

The framerate is usually around 30FPS in most maps but in some, there are a few noticeable hiccups.

Capture4.PNG

It's also worth noting that not many people are playing the game right now so it takes a while to actually get into the "meat and potatoes" of the game.

There aren't many customization options for your character and there are only three face options to choose from if you want your character to be female.

I won't touch on the topic of graphics, for now, just the resolution as I have yet to play the game in docked mode.

Capture5.PNG

Another thing is the game lacks gyro controls, which for me is a must-have in any console shooter game.

Aside from that I don't find the looting and improving your shelter gameplay appealing.

it's simply boring and overused.

Capture7.PNG

Right now there's only one mode and I just don't know what the other modes they are putting into the game...​

Review code provided by the developers

This review was supposed to come out long ago but I wanted the right person to review the game... anyway, here it is, our review of Deep Sky Derelicts.

This game was reviewed by 2 people, me and another member of the news team, keep that in mind when approaching this article.

[​IMG]

The tutorials are not very useful, I learned more from playing the game than I learned from the tutorial.

The game could have a fast forward option or an option to turn off combat animations.

Interesting combat.

Not noob friendly, this game is definitely not for people who don't usually play this kind of game.

There's too much going on and too little I actually understand.

[​IMG]

The game has a few dated systems.

Navigating through the menus is confusing.

The menus themselves are confusing, it was hard to tell what I was doing.

The story didn't get me engaged, it is very basic.

The art direction is good, the game looks like it came straight out of a comic book - at the same time, there aren't many visual elements, backgrounds tend to repeat themselves for example.

The soundtrack is pretty good, it can range from eerie to really action-packed kinda music, it really does a good job at conveying the message that your characters are in space.



Ok, now I'll compare my experience with Twe's (the other news team member) experience.

Twe is into card and strategy games,...
Cooking Mama Cookstar removed from the shop - Cooking Mama Cookstar devs accused Of Cryptomining

20200407_222242.jpg

Despite what people may think, it appears there is no need to be alarmed as there is no crypto-mining going on.

The game was only removed because the developers are having a legal dispute against the publisher of the game.

An explanation was provided by the game's developer

Quote from the game's developer's (Source: Screen Rant)

"The statement about crypto-currency was all buzz words. The head of planet entertainment knows very little about these things... he just put some fancy language to get potential investors who like that stuff. As for the crashes/ overheating. That would be because the game is made in unity. By many people working on their first game... it's not the best product but it made it through several vigorous reviews by Nintendo and Sony. There is no way crypto-mining stuff could get through those tests. I doubt anyone at 1P would even be able to make such a thing."

"There is a legal battle between the publisher, planet entertainment and the IP holder, office create. Planet Entertainment released the game against a request by office create to keep polishing the game, or perhaps even canceling it."

"At one point the Japanese office create clients who came to oversee development. An argument started and the clients were told to go home if they weren't being "constructive". Once they found out that planet entertainment released the game, they used their Nintendo contacts to pull it from the e-shop and stop production of cartridges."

"Overall, everyone at 1p loves the cooking mama franchise and did their best to make the best product considering the interference from the higher-ups. I think the game is far from perfect but would have done fine without the publishers stumbling so...

What a strange... puzzle game?

I literally don't know how to review this game.

Is it a game?

Is it an art project?

Is it both? (Games are art too, right?)

Is it none?

What's the story?

Who am I?

Where am I?

What's going on?

What do I do?

I have so many questions.

ss_07b617662c029cf125c606a00c73738b59299dbf.1920x1080.jpg

But the game is too short and doesn't give me any answers.

The game is over before you realize.

I guess it's up to interpretation? You know, like art.

maxresdefault (1).jpg

Playing this game is like having a weird dream.

But weird doesn't mean bad.

I didn't dislike it, I quite enjoyed the weirdness of it all.

I don't know how to explain it.

Wurroom-game-download.jpg

Apparently everything in the game is made from real plasticine.

What you see in the game are not 3D models, they are photos of real plasticine.

Very interesting choice.

Wurroom can only be played in handheld mode by the way as it uses the touch screen for all the puzzle solving

ss_c6813c9dc8709125dea0bb082584a2a7e07c1050.1920x1080.jpg

Wurroom is a rather short game, but I guess that's fine.

When the game is over you are simply asked to close the game.

You may wanna play it a second time?

In the end, if you buy Wurroom you will mostly be paying for the experience, not the game aspect of the game.

ss_89cd51a418f28f3469679b7392396429c27fedc7.1920x1080.jpg

The game is just 0.99$ so... if you have a few gold coins on your account you may wanna check Wurroom out.

I do recommend it but again... I am not sure it's really a game.

It's pretty cool nonetheless.

I don't know how to score this game all I can say is it that it was an interesting experience.

Puzzles: 8/10 they were easy but that doesn't matter
Music: 8/10
Graphics: 9/10
Trippyness: 10/10 really trippy

Overall: Good/10

No, I am not trying to be funny, I just don't know what score...​
