RPG Maker MV Canceled On Xbox One

Sad news for Xbox Fans hoping to create their own role-playing game, as reported by Destructoid and many others RPG Maker MV has been canceled for various reasons. My honest guess would be that Microsoft has a great relationship with so many indy companies had some second thoughts with so many free games coming from it on top of the fact that it wouldn’t likely have too many sales on a console not known for doing well in Japan and among RPG fans. This is all speculation on my part of course, so take it with a huge grain of salt. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

EA Won’t hold E3 Conference 2019

According to engadgets.com and many others, EA has joined Sony in not having a conference at E3 in 2019. There will still be plenty of companies at this point but it does leave me to wonder, will we see others forgo the E3 tradition at this point with such big names leaving it behind? With a few months to go still, it will be an interesting wait, to say the least, and I myself expect to see a few others drop out as well. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Xbox Phil Spencer Wants Gamepass On Everything

As reported by Digitaltrends and during recent interviews with Geekwire Phil Spencer has said they want to put Gamepass on anything people play games on. To paraphrase the entire interview (which can be found in the links above) they know they won’t sell billions of consoles because not everyone wants to own one nor is it a part of everyone’s lifestyle. With Gamepass being sold on everything from Xbox, to PC to mobile they want to make games as a service a big part of their business model.

Now Phil stopped very short of uttering the words PlayStation but he certainly seems to imply they are open to the idea of Nintendo and Sony getting in on the action as a way to get Gamepass out there. Now I know it sounds insane, but is it really? It would be another place for gamers to use Gamepass and it is money in everyone’s pocket. I don’t see it happening, but Microsoft seems to be open to the idea. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Live Action Sonic revealed

sonic live

A few days ago we got a look at what Sonic the Hedgehog is going to look like in his live action film debut? I can’t say I’m a big Sonic fan by any real stretch but I can say I never thought of him in live action; I’m a firm believer in certain characters in certain mediums should stay animated ( ex, the Cat in the Hat, Charlie Brown, Spryo the Dragon to name a few). What do I think? He isn’t nightmare fuel thankfully but looks strange to me. I guess he looks Ok but at the same time my brain keeps telling me this shouldn’t exist. I’m oddly curious how it will look in the trailer. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
