Game Of Thrones Show Creators To Write And Produce New Series Of Star Wars Films

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, producers and writers of HBO's Game of Thrones, are writing and producing a new series of Star Wars films 

The announcement, which came down today from Disney, identifies Weiss and Benioff as the creators of the well-known fantasy TV show. This might be putting it mildly, as Game of Thrones' cultural impact might actually be impossible to oversell in a modern context.

The pair are working on a new series, separate from the epic galaxy-saving tales of the Skywalker family and also different from Rian Johnson's still mysterious trilogy announced just before The Last Jedi's release. Beyond this, almost no details are known, except that work isn't due to start until Game of Thrones wraps up.

Capcom Pro Tour 2018 Commences Without Mention Of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite

Capcom has announced commencement of their Capcom Pro Tour, their multi-tournament fighting game tour, but curiously does not mention the recently-released Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite at all.

"Street Fighter fans," Capcom's blog post reads, "the wait is almost over. Capcom Pro Tour (CPT) 2018 is nearly upon us and we’re proud to feature Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and Season 3 this year."

Last year, despite Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite having not been released for the beginning of the Pro Tour, plans were still made to include it, and it culminated with the Battle for the Stones event at PSX in December. This year, there is nary a mention of the game within Capcom's public facing esports initiative, with all support having been poured into the recent update to Street Fighter V.

Cryptic Collectible Discovered In Shadow Of The Colossus Remake

Shadow of the Colossus is brimming with hidden, unrealized potential. The curious world map, unused assets, and tales of scrapped Colossi have led ardent players to wander its landscape in search of secrets for years. One such player named Nomad Colossus was recognized by Bluepoint Games in the credits of the newly released remake with the message "Nomad Colossus and the 79 steps to enlightenment." These steps to enlightenment have been tied to a new collectible that players have been finding across the world.

While fruit and lizard tails can be found that respectively increase Wander's health and stamina, these enlightenments, which look like gold coins, have no immediate effects. Up to 70 of them have been found by Brian (also known as "PS4Trophies" on YouTube), which he details in his video below.

Super Mario Odyssey Producer Talks Mario's Nipples, Confirms If Toad Is Wearing A Hat

Super Mario Odyssey Producer Talks Mario's Nipples, Confirms If Toad Is Wearing A Hat

Showing Mario's nipples is one of the few things more capable of breaking the internet than a Kardashian, and that's something Super Mario Odyssey producer Yoshiaki Koizumi did not expect.

In a video posted on Nintendo's of America's Twitter account, Koizumi answers a series of questions regarding Mario Odyssey. The first question asks, "Why does Mario have nipples, but no belly button?" and if Nintendo was expecting the huge reactions fans had.

"So, we're jumping right into that question, are we?" Koizumi jokingly says. "Well, to be perfectly honest, I didn't really expect that to be a topic among fans. Once I heard that people were talking so much about Mario's belly button, it made me start to think about whether we should revisit the topic on the design side."

Luca Redwood On The Success Of 10000000 And His Future With Photographs

Luca Redwood On The Success Of 10000000 And His Future With Photographs

Luca Redwood gained notoriety in 2012 with the release of 10000000 on mobile devices. The RPG-lite match-three game was perfect for mobile devices and has the rare distinction among comparable games of having an ending. He followed that game up with an interesting multiplayer game called Smarter Than You, and in 2015 released a sequel of sorts to 10000000 entitled You Must Build a Boat. Later this year he will release his fourth game, Photographs. We spoke with Redwood about the success of his previous games and what makes Photographs different from his other projects.

Game Informer: 10000000 and You Must Build a Boat were both highly replayable puzzle games, but Photographs is more focused on characters and story?

Luca Redwood: That’s what this game is – it’s a bit of both. My niche is threading the needle between the casual and the hardcore. That’s what I tried to do with 10000000 and You Must Build a Boat. For this one, it’s trying to thread the needle between a casual game and a serious game.

Rumor: Dataminers Discover That Pokémon Go Might Soon Have Story Quests

Silph Road, a dedicated group of dataminers that dig into Pokémon Go's code to uncover secrets, has recently made an interesting discovery. If their findings are correct, the latest version of Pokémon Go (version 0.91.1 for Android and 1.61.1 for iOS) shows signs that story quests are soon to come to the mobile game.

These quests include both short and long-term goals, and include some familiar human characters from the franchise like Professor Willow. According to Silph Road, these human characters will be given animations such as facial expressions indicating when they're upset or happy.

As for the patch notes that Niantic revealed publicly for the update, you can view those below.
