The Xbox Live outage is reigniting the conversation around online requirements.

On Friday, Xbox gamers began experiencing issues connecting to Xbox Live and purchasing games. Also, playing purchased games has become impossible even when trying to play offline. online services have been inconsistentfor the rest of the weekend, sparking a renewed conversation around DRM recordings for offline single-player games.

As of this writing, many gamers are always pays issues, such as being unable to play games they have purchased, even though the game has an online requirement.

More recently, Xbox Support on Twitter hinted that the issue should be fully resolved “in the coming days”, with the release of a new update.

The service outage has dug a larger conversation that dates back to the launch of the Xbox One. Microsoft’s strategy at the time to have an always-online requirement was met with frustration from the players.

DRM – which stands for Digital Rights Management – is used to ensure that the gamer opening any software application on a console has the right to do so, either through direct purchase or subscription service.

In the case of games played online, a DRM registration or lack thereof is less significant, as the game in question would not work if the services were down anyway. However, DRM recordings affecting offline games are another matter.

This is also an issue that remains unique to Xbox, as the Twitter account Does it play? confirmed that games on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch will remain playable offline and won’t have the same issues.

For many game curators, DRM can be an obstacle to preserving the history of video game media, negating Microsoft’s efforts to ensure backward compatibility of Xbox Series consoles. Last year, Microsoft even brought about the preservation of the gametouting a major effort to preserve the game’s story as “more important than ever”.

This statement came a few days afterSony has announced the closure of the PS3 and PS Vita store, a decision that has since been reversed. On the other side of the coin, Nintendokept his word to deleteSuper Mario 3D All-Stars from the Nintendo eShop, and announced the closure of 3DS and Wii U eShops for March next year.

Altogether, the Xbox Live outage highlights the messy nature of DRM and its potential impact on the preservation of video games. It will be interesting to watch the reaction to the news and see how the conversation surrounding online requirements evolves going forward.

The Queen’s 24-karat gold Nintendo Wii is finally on sale https://snesheaven.org/the-queens-24-karat-gold-nintendo-wii-is-finally-on-sale/ Fri, 06 May 2022 00:15:00 +0000 https://snesheaven.org/the-queens-24-karat-gold-nintendo-wii-is-finally-on-sale/ In 2009, THQ did a publicity stunt in covering a Nintendo Wii in 24-karat gold and trying to get it delivered to Queen Elizabeth II.

In 2009, THQ did a publicity stunt in covering a Nintendo Wii in 24-karat gold and trying to get it delivered to Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty never got her hands on the console, but now, after more than a year of hijinx auctioning, you might be able to.

In fact, I wrote about it last yearwhen the console, in the hands of a collector in the Netherlands, was to be offered for sale on eBay:

The queen probably never received the console…as shown in this excellent episode of People Make Games– but it eventually found its way into the hands of collector Don, one of the guys behind the website consolevariations.comwho I wrote about back in 2019.

put on, who is now, “Moving on with life” and looking to buy a new placesells parts of its collection, and the star item is of course this famous 24-carat gold-plated Wii, which he listed on eBay for $300,000.

This eBay auction took place in October 2021 and garnered over 700 bids, before a recent change in eBay’s bidding policies – which tied an item’s value to the user’s sales history , which in this case was “very expensive console” versus “one guy’s console”. regular eBay account »– had the auction removed before it could be completed.

Six months later, the console’s current owner, Don (who also runs the excellent Console Variations) found a workaround, with auction house Goldin is only too happy to list the golden Wii (and the shitty game it was originally intended to promote) there instead.

Here is Goldin’s list:

Due to the palace correspondence team’s understandably strict policy on gifts, however, for security reasons the console never made it to the palace, let alone into the hands of the queen. He was then returned to the offices of THQ, unbeknownst to the rest of the world, who assumed he had reached his final destination, living the life of royalty. When THQ went bankrupt in 2012, “The Royal Wii” fell off the radar, and no one was quite sure what happened to it. However, five years later, it resurfaced, having been acquired by a collector specializing in development material, who had obtained it from a contact he had at THQ. He eventually sold the console, and it’s been quietly in our shipper’s hands ever since.

Featured here is the ultimate Wii collectible, commissioned especially for Her Majesty The Queen herself for a (somewhat wacky and ultimately unsuccessful) marketing ploy, “The Golden Wii”. Both the console and the controller are plated in 24 carat gold. Both show minor handling wear, with the controller showing scattered chips on the gold plating. The bundle includes the console, a controller, a copy of BIG Family Games, a sensor bar, and all necessary cables. The Wii will come with a Provenance Letter from our sender attesting to its history and authenticity. Don’t miss the opportunity to own this truly one-of-a-kind Nintendo collectible! (Crown Jewels not included.)

The bidding has just opened, and I’m incredibly curious to see where it goes. On the one hand, it’s a Wii with gold on it, a funny story and a copy of a really bad video game. It might cost a little more than the $1,500 currently on offer. On the other hand, we now live in a world where Pokémon cards can sell for as much as an apartmentso who knows how much someone will eventually be willing to pay for this thing. With the auction closing on May 22, I guess we’re about to find out.

Today was a day full of Reggie Fils-Aimé treats. The new book from the former president of Nintendo of America, disrupt the game, launches in North America today, and we had a chance to read it ahead of time. You can read our thoughts on the book right here in our review.

However, fans who pre-ordered the audiobook version get access to exclusive bonus content, where Reggie chats with his close friend and Game Awards host Geoff Keighley. The discussion naturally revolves around – guess what? — Mother 3.

It’s a game that people often associate with Reggie’s tenure at the Big N, a game that fans have harassed Reggie for years while he worked at Nintendo and beyond. Reggie often toyed with fans in response, once saying he owned a English version of Mother 3 on Twitter. And how can we forget the opening of Nintendo’s E3 2014 digital event?

The bonus audiobook content was compiled by Nintendo All About Mother 3. Reggie spoke to Keighley about Nintendo’s decision, which was made before he joined the company. When he was on board, Nintendo was already pushing the marketing of the Nintendo DS. Reggie reveals that the marketing of its predecessor, EarthBound, has been well considered.

“The original decision not to release the game was made before I joined the company, but I’ve certainly had many conversations with Mr. Iwata about this game, the passion of the fans, and certainly the perspective was the first game on Super Nintendo Entertainment. The system didn’t sell very well. Granted, as I went back to it, the marketing wasn’t great. I think it was marketed in a way weird like “this game stinks” or something. It really wasn’t the best marketing activity behind launching a new game. Because it didn’t sell well, because yeah, there has a lot of time and financial investment in localizing this type of content, it really wasn’t a priority.”

Considering EarthBound rose to popularity long after the game’s initial release, that’s not too surprising. If you include the fact that the focus was on DS at the time, and the Wii was also on the horizon, “it really just wasn’t a strong business priority”.

It’s surely disappointing to hear, but the conversation around Mother 3’s location didn’t end there. With the era of the 3DS and Wii U, digital-only purchases only grew in popularity, and the success of Virtual Console on the Wii was fresh in Nintendo’s mind.

Reggie reveals that he had a conversation with Satoru Iwata about the third entry in the Mother series on the 3DS or Wii U via this method. He suggests that the re-release of the first game – EarthBound Beginnings – was an example of dipping your toes in water.

“We had conversations before about having a bunch of games that weren’t localized, that it was the purely Japanese game being made available. And we’ve done that for a number of titles. They Mr. Iwata and I had this conversation about Mother 3. What ultimately happened was that we launched the first Mother game called EarthBound Beginnings on the Wii U eShop. is a sense of the conversations that were taking place and the thought process.”

EarthBound Beginnings was renowned for its high difficulty and in many ways felt like a prototype for the SNES sequel, so it was already a niche sell to anyone but hardcore EarthBound fans. And its only release on Wii U (until Switch Online), a console that had disappointing sales numbers, was probably a bit of a drag.

Reggie talks more about Iwata – who joined the production on EarthBound when the project was in dire straits and was possibly responsible for rescuing it – who had multiple discussions with NoA’s president about the potential re-release by Mother 3.

And who knows? If Mr. Iwata hadn’t died, if maybe the Wii U had done better in the market, maybe the Mother 3 game would have been successful then. So there were certainly conversations, but it should have been done in the right way.

It’s clearly Reggie speculating or thinking out loud about what could have been, but it’s a sad note to end on. Reggie told SXSW how Iwata’s death caused him to re-evaluate his life, so it’s clear the two were close.

Earlier today, we reported on Shinichi Kameoka’s thoughts on why Mother 3 wasn’t localized on the Kit & Krysta podcast. Fans are still desperate to see an official release of this game, and maybe all that big-name Nintendo and Brownie Brown chatter will help.

There’s a veritable mess of deals going on today, and I’m excited to share some of them with you. The most impressive (and unexpected) deal is for Apple’s 2021 iPad Mini, which received a similar design overhaul to the iPad Air. Normally $499.99 for the 64GB Wi-Fi version, you can get it for just $399.99 today at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. That beats the best price by almost $50. Given that this is such an aggressive and out-of-the-box offer, this one could see some color options sell out quickly. And if you’re interested in more storage, the 256GB configuration is also $100, which costs $549.99 instead of $649.99.

The 2021 iPad Mini features an 8.3-inch display and is powered by the A15 Bionic chipset. One of the big advantages it has over the more affordable base iPad is its USB-C charging port, which allows for wider compatibility with accessories. The second-generation Apple Pencil can snap to the side to charge at startup. Read our review.

It’s also a milestone day for Nintendo Switch owners who haven’t purchased yet. Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The relaxing game where you craft, meet other islanders, catch bugs and more is $39.99 at GameStop, Best Buy and Target. The game typically costs $59.99, and among Nintendo’s exclusive titles for the Switch, price drops haven’t taken this game below $15. But today, you can get $20 off the digital or physical title. Read our review.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons lets you build and grow your own lingering island and eventually manage the general well-being of the cast of characters who will call your island their home. By harvesting resources and trading with other islands, you’ll slowly transform the vacant island into something truly unique. Read our review.

About Switch games, Ring shaped adventure also sees a return to its lowest price. Normally $79.99 (and at one point extremely hard to find at regular price at the start of the pandemic), it’s now $54.99 at Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Amazon. This game includes a pilates ring, and with its single-player campaign, it will have you stretching, doing yoga poses, squats, and more to defeat enemies. It’s a surprisingly fun (and physically engaging) experience. The kit includes a leg strap, which you can also use with Nintendo Switch Sports play soccer.

Ring shaped adventure

Nintendo’s practice game for the Switch. In addition to the game, Ring shaped adventure also includes Ring-Con and leg strap.

The good deals don’t stop there. Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy are offering a great price on the 41mm Apple Watch Series 7, Apple’s latest smartwatch. Normally $399, it’s back to its lowest price of $329. We’ve seen this price many times, but a $70 discount on Apple’s latest product is not to be overlooked. This price is valid on multiple colorways, including watches that include blue, green, black, red, or white bands. Read our review.

If you have a bigger wrist or just prefer a bigger screen, the 45mm model isn’t much more expensive. There’s also a $70 deal with this one, bringing the price down to $359.

Some other offers to start your Monday

  • The latest Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (with ad) featuring a 6.8-inch display, USB-C charging, and display support for adjustable color temperature for easier reading in multiple reading environments is $40 at Best Buy, retailing for $99.99. Amazon and Target also offer a discount, but it’s a bit smaller, each costing $104.99. Read our review.
  • Amazon’s new Echo Show 15 that can be hung on your wall is getting its first big price drop, knocking $50 off its price from $249.99. You can buy it for $199.99. In our Jennifer Pattison Tuohy review, she praised the design and how easy it was to assemble. She also thought it was a good kitchen TV, but considering the price, its camera quality is poor and its customization options are limited. Read our review.
  • Target is offering a buy, get one 30% off a bunch of tech accessories, including Apple’s AirTag tracker (via Slickdeals). Whatever products you add to your cart, the lower value one will be 30% off.

Soapbox features allow our individual writers and contributors to voice their opinions on hot topics and random topics they have in mind. Today, Stuart is pleading with the powers that be to get a certain trilogy on Nintendo Switch Online…


Game Boy Advance is coming to Switch Online! Perhaps! Almost certainly, anyway! With a bit of luck. Hmm.

Listen, it’s not confirmed, but it’s as good as, which was enough to prompt me to write a rant imploring Sega and Nintendo to resolve their age-old differences and bring back a nearly forgotten series of Sonic classics. A rebirth era for 2D Sonic fans. Yes, of course I’m talking about the venerable Sonic Advance series. Three games, a tangentially linked combat RPG (Sonic Battle) and a pinball machine (Sonic Pinball Party).

Those last two don’t count much in there, though that’s not to say they don’t have anything to offer – Sonic Battle has a shocking story for a Sonic game, and Pinball Party is definitely a good time. It’s the core games, though, that I crave the most – Sonic Advance, Sonic Advance 2 and… uh… (check Wikipedia) Sonic Advance 3. I mean, come on! They have not been re-released – other than an appearance on the Japanese Wii U eShop – since their original GBA cartridge arcs in 2001, 2002 and 2004 respectively. Yeah, I can feel a hardcore Sonic fan nudging me on the back about the 2003 N-Gage version of the original game, Sonic N. I know, buddy. Believe me, I’m obsessed too.

Either way, the games would be a perfect candidate for the Switch Online rumored service and I pray to the various gaming gods for that to happen. While the Sonic Advance series isn’t perfect, I think it’s a bit brilliant, and I’d like to take some time to explain exactly why each of the games is specifically worth your time, effort, and energy.

Sonic Advance kicked things off with the first 2D Sonic game since Sonic & Knuckles in 1994. Wait, no, that’s not strictly true – the brilliant Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure for Neo Geo Pocket Color hit that ill-fated system in late 1999. Granted, it’s the first “high-level” 2D Sonic game and the first Sonic game on a Nintendo system (alongside Sonic Adventure 2: Battle which was launched on the same day, December 20, 2001). It was seismic at the time, a real “snowball in hell” moment for gaming.

But that’s not the point; the indicate, dear reader, is one that must be expressed as eloquently as possible: Sonic Advance slaps. My friends, it’s a hell of a game; it’s no match for the Mega Drive classics but it’s closer than anyone would dare to admit. The ability to play as Tails and Knuckles with their familiar skills makes things even more vintage. Even better, you can now play as Amy Rose with her Piko Piko hammer, straight out of Sonic Adventure. It’s more than just a novelty inclusion – it transforms the game, making it much harder and forcing you to approach it with much more caution. She can’t spin the dash and isn’t invulnerable when jumping – but a series of new hammer-based moves partly make up for that.

The sequel arrived next year, creatively titled Sonic Advance 2, and is best known for introducing the loathsome name Cream the Rabbit, the last of Sonic’s pals and a de facto “easy mode” for a game that was already pretty easy. His ability to throw his little sidekick Chao – the equally disgustingly named cheese – at enemies from almost anywhere on screen made him a neat little death machine.

There’s also a new, highly controversial emphasis on speed. You know the common (and inaccurate) criticism of classic Sonic that it’s just about “keeping the right to win”? Well, Sonic Advance 2 is probably the closest the series has come to doing this little right word a reality. Sure, there’s no need to win, but you’re encouraged to go faster than ever with a prevalence of speed boost pads, simplified grind mechanics, and the new ability to get a burst of speed extra during an uninterrupted run. a few seconds. Even boss fights see you chasing Robotnik as he darts away from you in his latest mecha monstrosity, taking gunfire.

It’s hard to really like Sonic Advance 2, but if you fall for it, it’s going to be your favorite. The music and visuals are fantastic and – for better or worse – it’s probably the hardest Sonic game to get all seven Chaos Emeralds. However, you will need to unlock everything. You need to get all the Emeralds with each of the other four characters in order to play as Amy, who unfortunately isn’t really worth it as she’s become much less interesting than she was in the original Sonic Advance. . Boo! Hiss!

Next, let’s move on to Sonic Advance 3, a game so weird that when its ROM file leaked before release, many people assumed it was a fake fan effort. You see, there’s a lot of stuff about Advance 3 that’s a little…off. The physics feel like they’ve been tweaked and the game feels weightless at times. It’s also bizarre how the entire beat structure of the first two titles has been revamped with a weird, almost labyrinthine hub area that lets you explore empty, uninteresting spaces without enemies in order to locate the “Act Rings”. that lead to each area; which also now have three acts each instead of two, with a fourth boss act found separately in the hub.

So far, so strange, but still a really good time. The major new mechanic is team moves; At the start of the game, you choose two characters from the same group of five as the previous game, then send them out into the world. It’s cool in that you can just leave Sonic behind while, say, Knuckles and Cream go on an adventure. Since many team moves (used by holding the “R” button) are based on propulsion through the air, the levels have increased verticality and frankly feel absolutely expansive. Finding the hidden Chao in each act is therefore a significant challenge to complete, although it’s more fun than collecting the special rings in Advance 2.

It almost goes without saying that the music rules here; the final “Chaos Angel” zone is ridiculously epic and disturbing at times. The story is sort of a general sequel to Sonic Battle – ignore it. Treat it like the 21 2D Sonic levels it is and you’ll be hard pressed not to have fun.

So again, Nintendo – Sega – anybody – I implore you to make this series available again, and the Nintendo Switch Online service is the perfect opportunity. In fact, it would be better for everyone if you (Nintendo, I’m talking to you) would just do as I say at all times.

So, the Sonic Advance series, yeah? Then the Klonoa matches. Then Kururin Paradi— [Snip! – Ed]

The release of Sound origins It’s just around the corner, and while many fans are excited about this upcoming 4-in-1 collection, there’s still one question that keeps coming up – will it have a physical release?

Sega of America’s social media manager Katie Chrzanowski addressed this topic again in Sonic’s latest official YouTube livestream – reiterating that a physical release is currently not planned at this time. The good news is the team (we assume it’s Sega) is “aware” of the request for a physical release. Crossed fingers.

“There’s not one planned at the moment, I’ve seen a lot of comments asking for one, so the team has been informed, there is a need for a physical release.”

This follows the same source confirming (via social media) that there would be no physical version for Origins when the release date was revealed last week:

For a physical collector, that means you’ll either have to use a digital copy available through the Switch eShop and several other digital platforms, or wait in the hope that Sega announces a hard copy of the game sooner rather than later.

If you pick up the game when it releases and have pre-ordered in advance, you’ll also unlock additional goodies, which you can read more about in our previous story.

Will you be playing Sonic Origins when it comes out? Let us know in the comments.

We’re getting another version of Arcade Archives on Switch tomorrow, as a Japan-only platformer Yokai Dochuki is the next game to launch in the series, albeit with a slightly different name in the West, however – Shadowland.

Originally released in arcades in 1987, the game sees you traversing jigoku (essentially, hell or purgatory) to reach Yama, the Buddhist deity who will determine your final fate. There are five levels to play, and all of them are based on different regions of jigoku. You can fire spiritual energy balls – ki – at your enemies and run and jump through each level. Shadowland truly embraces its Buddhist mythology and inspirations.

An interesting thing about the game is that there are five different endings. The ending you get depends on how much money you collect and how many enemies you kill. Later versions of the game allow you to track your “good deeds” with a bar that you can use to see what ending you might get in the end. However, it’s unlikely to make it into this release, as it will be based on the original arcade game.

Arcade Archives Shadowland drops on the eShop tomorrow, April 28, and as with the rest of the series, it will cost $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29. Take a look at the gameplay below and let us know if you’ll be picking it up for the digital collection in the comments!

Justin Voyles, owner of Atomic Gaming, has opened the doors to his game store to provide not only kids, but also gamers with a place to have fun.

MACON, Ga. — For those interested in Dungeons & Dragons, Pokémon, or even Mortal Kombat, there’s room for you.

Atomic Gaming is a new business where customers can come in, pay for the duration of their stay and play!

They have tons of games to play on different systems like Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo consoles.

For those not really intrigued by console games, the shop also has an area to play traditional card and board games.

Owner Justin Voyles was inspired to create the space due to his relationship with video games as a child.

“Growing up I always wanted to hang out with my friends and they always played Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Smash Brothers, Super Nintendo and I just wanted to know more,” Voyles said. “I wanted to play more cards, play more video games and hang out with my friends. Now we just grew up and now we do.”

According to a regular customer, Isahiah Smith, Voyles managed to create a house for the players.

“I come here, I’d say, a week or two after they open. After my first visit, I was hooked. I come here all the time,” Smith said. “You walk in and see a whole bunch of TVs with different games. You see people everywhere, nice tables, great set up, snacks. I walked in and didn’t know where to start.”

Atomic Gaming is located at 116 Riverside Parkway in Macon. They are open from noon to 8 p.m. daily.
