Fan-Made P.T. Port Cancelled, Teenage Developer Offered Internship At Konami

It has been a few weeks shy of four years since P.T., an acronym for Playable Teaser, released on PlayStation 4. The demo, which was later revealed to be a teaser for Silent Hills, set off a a chain of events that ended with the game getting cancelled, Hideo Kojima leaving the company and joining Sony, and the demo's licenses being revoked on people's consoles.

Fans became upset at the inability to play P.T. even though it existed on their harddrives, as many considered just the teaser to be a masterwork of survival horror. As such, a seventeen-year-old developer who goes by the handle Qimsar started working on porting the game to PC. This is the last footage of the game released earlier this month.

According to Qimsar, Konami reached out this week about this port. The Konami employee explained to him that they can't let the port proceed outside of their purview and that it would need to be shut down.

Fortnite Streamer Stages Daring Rescue Of Another Player

The Fortnite Twitter today posted a clip of a streamer, @MrMuselk, noticing another player stuck at the bottom of the game world.

Assuming that the other player was out of materials, MrMuselk began building a large and winding staircase down to rescue him. The stairs were not the only twists and turns in his story, as not everything goes according to plan in this clip. You can find the tweet below.

Watch as @MrMuselk attempts to rescue a fellow player.

Gearbox Pokes Fun At Aliens: Colonial Marines AI Bug

A few days ago, it was discovered that fixing a typo in the INI file for Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox's incredibly maligned first-person shooter, actually fixed some of the enemy AI. We tested it. Even after knowing what it does, we were flabbergasted it actually works.

Somehow, someway, a spelling mistake made the game worse. Even more surprising, it wasn't caught until fans managed to find and fix it. Today, Gearbox decided to tweet a job listing that makes a little fun of the problem.

Nolan North Will Voice Cayde-6 In Destiny 2: Forsaken

In a strange turn of events, Nolan North will be taking over the voicework for Cayde-6 in Destiny 2: Forsaken. Nathan Fillion was "unavailable" to reprise his role he told Kotaku's Splitscreen podcast. He had this to say about the strange situation.
"Unfortunately these things don't work out and it's a little bit heartbreaking but if it has to go to someone else, then thank god it goes to someone I absolutely love and the fans love - the character was in good hands."

What is even weirder, is that Fillion just played Nathan Drake in an Uncharted fan film, a role that Nolan North is known for. In some alternate universe, the two of them are just playing some elaborate prank based on an esoteric inside-joke. We now live in a world where Nolan North will most likely be talking to Nolan North in the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, ever since he took over the duties as the Ghost from Peter Dinklage. If other characters voice actors move on, does he take over their spots as well? Will there be a Destiny game eventually voiced entirely by Nolan North? Only time will tell.

1979 Revolution: Black Friday, An Indie Title Based On Iranian Uprising, Hits Switch In August

When 1979 Revolution: Black Friday released on PC last year, we said it was a "quality adventure game that tells a gripping story about people struggling to survive the times and bring about change." In a couple weeks, that quality adventure will be available on Switch to take wherever you'd like.

The game takes place in the real Iranian revolution, couching story-relevant decisions and quicktime events in the context of the country's turbulent history. Although it comes with some of the jank of ambitious indie titles, it's less than $15 and provides a historical perspective relatively unfamiliar to many in the West. 

Pre-orders are available now for North America and tomorrow for Europe on the Nintendo eshop, and the game releases August 2. The title will also drop for PS4 on July 21 and Xbox One on August 3.

With Hollow Knight now on the Switch, a number of new players are being introduced to the dark Metroidvania game from Team Cherry. However, there's still more content on the way for players who can't wait to revisit the ruins of the abandoned and dead kingdom.

In a blog post, Team Cherry confirmed that the free DLC pack, which they call "the largest yet," will release for free on August 23 for both Switch and PC. While the developers are a bit vague about what will be added in the DLC, it is clear from the trailer that one of the Nailmasters is being introduced as a boss, as well as a host of other new and old boss fights with slight twists.

Team Cherry also said that the DLC will contain a new mode that has been "long requested" by fans. You can check out the announcement trailer below.

Exclusive First Look At Singing And Dancing DJ Bumblebee Toy

A few days ago, we had the exclusive first look at a few figures from Hasbro's Transformers: Generations War for Cybertron – Siege line. Well, we're back at it again. This time we have a quick glimpse at Hasbro's new DJ Bumblebee figure. This oddball toy actually records your voice and then remixes that audio to the tune of one of three songs: Aerosmith's Walk This Way, Young MC's Bust A Move, or the original Transformers theme song.

This dancing bee won't be available until winter 2019, but you can get an early look at it if you're traveling to San Diego Comic Con this week. Here's the full descrition from Hasbro:

Transformers: Bumblebee – DJ Bumblebee Drop the beat with the DJ Bumblebee figure. Using Sing-Back Tech, this figure records kids’ voices, and then plays back the soundbite in sync with 1 of 3 awesome tracks. Kids control the mix – move the figure’s left arm to switch songs and right arm to control the tempo. Figure comes pre-loaded with music clips Walk This Way, originally by Aerosmith, Bust A Move, originally by Young MC, and the original G1 Transformers Robots in Disguise theme song. The DJ Bumblebee figure also dances to the beat during playback. Product does not convert, but can still mix it up.
