FROM THE AG INBOX: Video game news from the Vicereine

Subject: Gaming News 8/5

 

Hey Folks,

Here’s all the fun game news you need to know:

 

- Somebody has been trolling everyone with a fake United Airlines account, and the results are spectacular:

United Airlines
 

 

- The Wii U is not doing great. Surprise! To no one! Only 160,000 units have been sold globally between April and June, and only 1.03 million games for the console for the quarter. And because of that news, publishers are running away from the console. And so are some grocery stores in the UK.

 

- Luckily, Animal Crossing: New Leaf (about 4.5 million units sold) and the 3DS have been keeping the company afloat. And Nintendo has decided you can purchase digital content through a PC or smartphone for Nintendo products. They’re embracing digital a bit late in the game, but we’ll see what happens. If they don’t figure it out, then the pirates will continue to put out emulators and things for free.

 

And Microsoft lost $900 million on the Surface. No wonder they were hiding that info for so long. They have not been doing great when it comes to new products (the Zune, Bing, IE, the Xbox One, Windows 8, and now the Surface). But, they are doing some neat things in terms of the Xbox Live community, such as making trolls play with other trolls, and rewarding players for being kind and helping out other players.

 

THE NEW BIOSHOCK DLC LETS YOU PLAY AS ELIZABETH

YAAAAAAAAYYYY!!!

 

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot backs off on the monetization scam idea

Because, for some reason, players want their games to reward them for skills rather than how deep their pockets are. Kids these days.

 

There’s going to be a sequel to the Tomb Raider reboot!

And hopefully it’ll have less creepy screaming.

 

Pivvot looks cool

Weird spelling, but it looks fun.

 

Not Gaming news, but whatever: Facebook has Auto Play Ads!

Yeah! Get out while you can you social media addicts. Myself, I live off the grid, except for my computer, iPad, and cellphone. But other than that, totally off the grid.

 

Thanks,

Vic
