    You will need to download these to your Android smartphone first, and then the operating system for your Android Wear will assist you in getting them onto your watch. You need to head to the Play Store on your watch, scroll down until you get to the Apps on Your Phone option, select it, and then go from there!

    No Forced Microtransactions for Square Enix Console Games

    One of the hottest topics in the gaming industry right now is microtransactions. Even though the larger game publishers like Take Two and EA have stated that they are probably going to be a vital part of future selling models, fans have been very resistant to the idea. This was most notable during the Star Wars Battlefront 2 backlash that recently occurred.

    Not all of the leading industry figures see microtransactions as the best way forward, however. In a recent interview with MCV, Yosuke Matsuda, the CEO for Square Enix, made it very clear that his company is not very likely to force microtransactions into each and every one of its console releases any time soon.

    This Selling Model Just Doesn’t Always Work

    Matsuda’s reason for this is that he doesn’t feel that this type of selling model always works for console games. He stated that, when you think about the manner in which console games are created, and take the volume of content and huge amount of effort that goes into creating them into account, there is something in all of that which doesn’t work well with the concept of microtransactions. The real money entertainment online gambling Canada provides could probably be grouped in the same category as console games too. Payment for play is upfront and immediate in the case of the latter, and there are not additional costs that players must consider as the game gets underway.

    Console Games are Different to Mobile Ones

    While microtransactions have become widely accepted as part of mobile games that offer free play, Matsuda acknowledged that this kind of welcome would not necessarily extend to paid for console games. He said that players had different expectations and desires where console games are concerned, and that they are not viewed in the same way that mobile games are.

    Square Enix is Not Averse to Service-Based Games

    This is not to say that Square Enix is totally averse to the release of additional service-based games by any means. Earlier this year, Matsuda stated in a message to the company shareholders that the games-as-service model would definitely be taken up. He explained that the days of single-player games having primary status in comparison to multiplayer games were gone.

    Multiplayer games have taken the lead, according to Matsuda, and it has become standard for these to be designed with long-term play in mind.

    It will most likely be the case, then, that Square Enix will carry on with the type of DLC model that is being used in Final Fantasy 15. They have stated that people have purchased these games, and they as a company wanted the games to be enjoyed and played for as long as possible. This meant that additional aspects were added after the game got completed, in order to provide players with further things to enjoy.

    The company is not likely to completely eschew microtransactions totally, however, as is evidenced by the fact that they appear in Final Fantasy 14. This is most likely as a result of this game being a huge multiplayer online role-playing game that is additionally available on PC. ...

    $15 Million Raised for Manticore Games

    Two executives previously in the employ of Zynga have managed to raise $15 million for Manticore Games, their brand-new gaming studio. It has been eight years since Jordan Maynard and Frederic Descamps launched their previous gaming start-up, the industry they assisted in shaping with A Bit Lucky. A Bit Lucky is a social game development company that provides multiplier games that unfold in real-time, and brings in over $100 billion in revenue globally.

    A Resurgence in the Popularity of Personal Computer Gaming

    Much in the same way that the easy access to top real money slots online has caused a surge in popularity for internet-based gambling, games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and League of Legends have resulted in a resurgence of gaming on PCs. In fact, user-generated content from within the gaming community has gone on to produce a string of incredibly popular hits, including Defense of the Ancients 2 and Rocket League.

    Manticore Games Hopes to Harness These Trends

    These trends are precisely what Maynard and Descamps hope to harness with their brand-new gaming studio, Manticore Games. Situated in San Mateo, this company is an independent developer of very high quality hardcore multiplayer personal computer and console games and services.

    An Undisclosed Game in the Wings

    With a new round of $15 million led by Benchmark, Manticore Games is working hard on an unknown game that will make use of the very same passion that users have in order to develop an innovative gaming experience.

    Benchmark’s general partner, Mitch Lasky, stated that he had been very eagerly anticipating working with Maynard and Descamps for many years.
    He revealed that they have been having an on going conversation regarding unique ways in which value and fun could be created for players, and he was very pleased to be able to assist them in building their exciting new company. Lasky’s previous early-stage investments include Discord, Outpost Games, Playfab, Riot Games, Snap, Gaikai, and Natural Motion.

    Manticore Will Focus on PC Gaming

    Focusing its energy on personal computer gaming, Manticore is busy with the task of creating a new manner of multiplayer play that makes use of content that users generate, says Descamps. He went on to say that tapping into the community power in terms of innovations extending into game design and play is very powerful, and allows developers to get a far better idea of what players were looking for.

    As Manticore is cooking up its first game, would-be players can look forward to a level of strategic gameplay and complexity similar to that found in the titles that are in the forefront of the PC gaming world currently.

    The Financing Has Been Rounded Out

    The founders’ pedigree and their plans for a brand-new game have been enough to attract other investors focused on games in order to round the financing out. Extra investors in the company’s $15 million round include Correlation Ventures, Macro Ventures, BITKRAFT Esports Ventures, SV Angel, and CrunchFund, along with a number of other high-profile tech and gaming entrepreneurs. ...

    Some news for the Vita Hacking scene that is exciting folks is the ReNpDrm by CelesteBlue, heres some more details:

    ReNpDrm is a kernel plugin for HENkaku/taiHEN-enabled PSVita/PSTV consoles by CelesteBlue (ePSP Bubble Installer and co-developer of Firmware Reinstaller). ReNpDrm constantly refreshes the system’s activation files so that it achieves its purpose of granting unrestricted access to PSN.This plugin will bring along the following:

    • Activation for unactivated consoles (or consoles that Sony rudely deactivated..) so that you can play your legally purchased digital games again!
    • Full access to PSN will be restored without the possibility of losing your activation files.
    • You will be able to purchase and download games from PSN again so you needn’t pirate games if you want to run them off your memory card! This is particularly great if you wish to benefit from the somewhat regular PSN sales!
    • Applications such as LiveTweet can also be downloaded so you can get access to the slim suite of smartphone-esque applications again!
      Unrestricted PSN access will soon be a thing again!

    This plugin doesn’t bring this stuff along:

    • You won’t be able to run games that require FW 3.61 or above but you can download them.
    • It won’t let you download games you don’t own (just in case you thought you could steal off PSN..)

    Heres a new browser exploit for the Nintendo Wii, i have 4 Nintendo Wiis Exploited and love playing emulators and older games on them, heres the news from Eurasia:

    Fullmetal5 over at gbatemp.net has released a browser exploit for Wii called FlashHax. Quote: 'This is an exploit in the Wii's Internet Channel which can still be freely downloaded from the shopping channel. This exploit is entirely loaded over the internet so you don't even need an SD card for this. The goal in the future is to have a little app store where you can launch any homebrew app without having to go through the Homebrew Channel or mess around with preparing files on an SD card. Unfortunately this doesn't work for the vWii since Nintendo doesn't allow you to download the Internet Channel on the vWii. Although if you install the channel through homebrew it should in theory work (untested tho).' Thanks goes to hitman43 for the heads up
