Switch Lite also has controllers drifting, class action lawsuit against Nintendo gets wider
As we wrote a couple of months ago, a class action lawsuit was filed against Nintendo due to controller drift on the Nintendo Switch. Drift refers to a problem where the controller stick is in a resting position, but the console is detecting movement. The company has promised to repair such controllers free of charge. However, users were afraid that the younger version of the console, Switch Lite, would have a similar problem. And so it happened.
Now the class action lawsuit against Nintendo has expanded with American players joining in. They accuse big N of fraud and violation of consumer rights law and warranty.
Some players complain that they had a problem literally a day after buying the console. Neither firmware nor calibration helped solve the problem.
Remakes of The House of Dead are coming
Forever Entertainment has signed with Sega to release remakes of the classic The House of Dead.
The plot of the game will remain unchanged, but the graphics and gameplay will be transformed for the better. In the next couple of months we will be shown the first game.
Returning us to the house of the dead will be MegaPixel Studio, which may be familiar to you from the remakes of the Panzer Dragoon dilogy preparing to release on Switch. The platforms for the new game are still unknown. Although taking into account that The House of Dead, like Panzer Dragoon, is a rail shooter, perhaps a remake should be expected for the same Switch. A remake of the first game is going to be released before the end of next year.
The original games were released in 1996 and 1997 on arcade machines with a pistol. After their success and popularity, they made it to home consoles.
Crooked Date Date: Table Manners Scary Date Simulator Announced
Remember the simulator of a curved-arm surgeon who performs operations with the left hand? If you missed this silly but so funny gameplay, Table Manners will be released especially for you early next year. It was developed by another studio, but the concept is very similar.
Table Manners is a game where you will go on dates and control a clumsy hand that will have to face the harsh world of the laws of physics, because they intend to ruin the whole romance of your evening.
You can go on dates in different places: sushi bars, restaurants on the water, in the air, and even in zero gravity. This is what you, that is, the hand, are ready for for the sake of the person you like. Depending on the location chosen, the rules of a cruel reality will change: either pour wine on a person, or stick a fork in the eye.
It all starts with the fact that you choose a person for yourself in the dating application [role-playing and immersion at the level!], where you need to flirt with him in the chat and just chat. The developers joke that the game will succumb to you at this point, and you can definitely find a match for yourself.
We will be able to play this miracle, confirming my theory that stoned, but high-quality simulators are returning, in the first quarter of 2020. Duke Nukem 3D composer sues Valve and Gearbox Bobby Prince, responsible for the soundtrack for Doom, Commander Keen and Duke Nukem, is suing Valve and Gearbox.
Once upon a time in 1996, Prince contributed to Duke Nukem 3D, published by Apogee Software. They had a contract with the composer for 16 tracks. So Prince should receive a dollar for every copy of the game sold.
Gearbox got the rights to the game in 2010, and in 2016 they re-released the classic Duke games Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour. But as it turned out, it uses Prince's music without his permission, although the project mentions that the rights belong exclusively to him.
The composer approached the head of Geaerbox, Randy Pitchford, with a request to pay him royalties. The studio acknowledged that the rights to the music did belong to him and promised to settle the conflict. But things are still there.
What side is Uncle Gaben and his company? In his lawsuit, Prince stated that he sent a notice to Valve in January 2018 about copyright infringement on Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour, but when it came, Valv ignored him and are now complicit in the case. Requires Bobby simple - pay him his money.
It should be said that the original game has two composers. The second is Lee Jackson, who even wrote new songs for the reissue of the game, which the studio released in 2016.
Infant from Death Stranding will communicate with the player via Dualshock
Why not actually? There is no other way to explain the game designer's decision to add this element to further immerse us in the game.
According to Hideo Kojima, the voice of a child from the container will be heard from the controller speaker from time to time. Most likely, this feature will work on any dualshock controller, and not just on a special gamepad for the Playstation 4 Pro stylized as Death Stranding, because each of them has a built-in speaker. You can always change the sound output devices.
This is not the only interaction with the child, also, using the controller's gyroscope, we will swing it to calm it down. Let us remind you that the game will be released on November 8, and Kojima himself will honor us with his presence at Igromir on October 4 .
Gamer found Lisa's headless corpse, which was cut out of PT and much more interesting
Last week we wrote about an enthusiast Lance MacDonald, who determined that Lisa from R.T. attached to our back. He promised to dig further in the game and report his findings.
In his new video, he talked about a couple of features of the game that he was able to dig up, as well as the cut content. For example, the game has a torn photo of Lisa hanging on the wall. When performing certain actions, it ended up on the floor. In fact, while the player was not looking, the game simply made the photo on the wall invisible and included a new model on the floor.
It's funny, but Lisa herself also works on this principle from time to time. When she appears and disappears near the door, in fact, she becomes invisible and is in the same place. MacDonald made it visible to see.
He also found the headless corpse of Lisa cut out of the game, which never made it to the final version.
This was all the news from the beginning of the week. Stay tuned.
