    $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

    A console that is a handheld that is a screen is to me one of the best ideas ever, heres the news from Nintendo press release:

    Nintendo Switch hits 10 million sales worldwide since its launch on 3rd March 2017, with a range of award-winning games including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey already available, with plenty more experiences to come in 2018.

    Nintendo Switch is a home console that can be played on a TV, and also taken instantly on the go – it lets people play their favorite games anytime, anywhere and with anyone. And since every Nintendo Switch system comes bundled with two Joy-Con controllers, players can easily share the fun of compatible multiplayer games with friends and family right out of the box.

    The robust and diverse library on Nintendo Switch features two of the most acclaimed video games of all time in Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. At The Game Awards last week in Los Angeles, Super Mario Odyssey won the award for Best Family Game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was honored with the awards for Game of the Year, Best Action/Adventure Game and Best Game Direction.

    Nintendo Switch is also home to fun multiplayer games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and ARMS that can be played online or with friends and family in the same room, as well as an ever-growing list of great third-party games like Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, FIFA 18, Rocket League, L.A. Noire, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Golf Story and Stardew Valley, Nintendo Switch is truly for any player.

    “As you can see in people’s living rooms, on a plane or riding the subway, fans all over the world can enjoy playing Nintendo Switch wherever they go,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The response from fans has been great, and we’re doing our very best to satisfy demand during the holiday shopping season.”

    After a record-breaking 2017, Nintendo Switch will continue its momentum in 2018. The system will see the launch of Nintendo-published games like Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2 and a new game in the beloved Yoshi franchise, in addition to big third-party games like Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus from Bethesda, Mega Man 11 from Capcom, PROJECT OCTOPATH TRAVELER (working title) from Square Enix, Shovel Knight: King of Cards from Yacht Club Games and Runner 3 from Choice Provisions. ...
