Hong Kong Massacre's PS4 Release Slightly Delayed For America

Indie game Hong Kong Massacre, a stylish new Hotline Miami-like by developer Vreski, came out recently on PC and PlayStation 4. The PC release is available worldwide, while the PlayStation 4 release appears to have only come out in Europe and Australia only. While a PS4 release was scheduled for America at the same time, it seems to be delayed, and the developer isn't saying why.

We are releasing THKM a bit earlier on steam and it is available NOW!. It looks like the PS4 version in America will not be released on the 22nd, this is something out of our control and we apologize for this. In Europe and Australia it is now available on PS4 Thanks, VRESKI

We are really sorry, but this is something out of our control. The latest it will be out is 31st January, that is all we know at the moment.

The Wii Shop Channel Closes Forever Next Week

The Wii Shop Channel Closes Forever Next Week

Digital distribution is an interesting thing, but it's still no doubt going through some growing pains. The question often arises of what happens when a company just decides to close up and shut down the shop, but it hasn't been too big an issue so far. That will change at the end of this week, when Nintendo becomes the biggest player in the game to shut down a digital distribution shop, effectively ending the ability to download or re-download anything from the Wii Shop.

The shutdown, which was announced on Nintendo's support website, means that the Wii Shop servers will no longer be accessible. So if there's games you have paid for but do not currently have downloaded on your Wii, you have until January 30 to get them onto the system memory or associated SD card. This means WiiWare games and Virtual Console titles, as well as any content that needs to be downloaded, like channels. In theory, Skyward Sword's patch can no longer be downloaded, thus leaving a progress-blocking glitch in the game forever.

Transfers from Wii to Wii U will also be impossible unless the Wii transfer channel is already downloaded.

Cyberpunk 2077's Creative Director Joins Blizzard

Cyberpunk 2077's Creative Director Joins Blizzard

It hasn't been that long since Cyberpunk 2077 wowed media at E3 with its slick style and free-flow design, and an even shorter time since they did so publicly. The game has been kind of quiet since then as Polish developers CD Projekt Red has been working on the ambitious title, though now it seems to be without their original creative director, Sebastian Stępień, as he seemingly moves on to Blizzard.

As discovered by a user on video game message board ResetEra, Stępień's LinkedIn profile now mentions that he has joined Blizzard as creative director of an unnamed project. The project likely is not one that has already been announced, but it is easy to speculate that Stępień's skills might make a lot of sense on the rumored Diablo projects in the works at the company, especially with Blizzard suggesting they're looking to shake up the standard formula.

Stępień had been at CDPR for 12 years prior to his departure, which LinkedIn does not list a date for on his profile. He helped shepherd the entire Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077 as a dialogue writer, narrative director, story designer, and creative director. It will be interesting to see what he has in store at Blizzard.
