Funimation And Crunchyroll Part Ways On Providing Anime

Funimation And Crunchyroll Part Ways On Providing Anime

Anime localization company FUNimation is separating from third-party streaming service Crunchyroll due to corporate mergers that have taken place since the two companies made their original deals years ago. The separation means a number of high profile series are going to be disappearing for Crunchyroll subscribers in favor of FUNimation's own service.

The breakdown occurred after AT&T finalized their acquisition of WarnerMedia earlier this year. Crunchyroll, which was joint-operated by AT&T and another company, was thus rolled into WarnerMedia as part of the acquisition. FUNimation, which Sony owns a 95% stake in as of early 2017, operates as a direct competitor to Warner. As such, FUNimation can no longer work with Crunchyroll.

While the full list of what is being removed from Crunchyroll and moved to FUNimation's service has not been released, the anime localization company is responsible for a lot of Crunchyroll's biggest hits: One Piece, My Hero Academia, Your Name, Attack On Titan, and others. Not all of these will be disappearing immediately, but the tree branch they're hanging onto gets progressively thinner as time goes on.

Team Disqualified From Counter-Strike Tournament After Player Was Caught Cheating During The Tournament

Team Disqualified From Counter-Strike Tournament After Player Was Caught Cheating During The Tournament

It's an unfortunate reality that sometimes people are going to cheat at competitive things. As a general rule, though, you don't want to cheat so blatantly that people can immediately notice and see you actively delete the cheating program. That rule got tested at the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive eXTREMELAND ZOWIE Asia tournament in Shanghai today when a player got his entire team booted from the tournament for cheating.

When OpTic India was facing off against Vietnamese team Revolution, the rival team and fans watching began to notice something was amiss. After an official accusation of cheating was lodged, the tournament organizers called for a long break where the competitors were asked to not touch their computers while the TOs investigated. When OpTic India's Nikhil “forsaken” Kumawat kept using his PC and refused to let administrators look at it, having to be physically stopped from deleting files, the jig was more or less up.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Cancels PC Event Due To Critical Error

Bluehole and PUBG Corp. have announced that this week's PC event has been cancelled due to a "critical error," though they did not specify beyond that.

This week's event mode, Platoon, was a 50 vs. 50 battle in 10-man squads, will not return next week, either. In a tweet, the support account simply said it would return at a later date.

PC Players: Unfortunately, this week's Event Mode has been cancelled due to a critical error.
We apologize for any frustration or disappointment this has caused. Event Mode: Platoon will not be returning next week, but will return at a later date.

Spider-Man New Game Plus And Ultimate Difficulty Out Now

Spider-Man New Game Plus And Ultimate Difficulty Out Now

A new update has gone live for Marvel's Spider-Man today, pushing out the much requested New Game+ and Ultimate difficulty updates. There are also two new associated trophies.

New Game+ lets you go back through the story with all the suits, powers, gadgets, and upgrades you had when you ended it. Ultimate difficulty is the hardest Spider-Man challenge yet and is a good option for those that want to play the game in a different way while doing trophy cleanup.

Speaking of trophies, both New Game+ and Ultimate are getting their own trophies added, though presumably you can combine the two together to get both at the same time.

Days Gone Delayed

Bend Studio's take on zombies and motorcycles has been delayed, Sony announced this morning. The game will now release on April 26.

The publisher took the time to explain the reasoning behind the delay as well:

Considering that the late January/February releases include Kingdom Hearts 3, Anthem, Metro Exodus, Resident Evil 2 Remake, it's easy to see Sony and Bend's reasoning.
