Fortnite has been riding a wave of popularity since the end of 2017, with more players enjoying the game, streaming, uploading videos, and participating in community events. It’s hard to imagine Fortnite going anywhere anytime soon, as the developers continue to work hard to supply game updates and brand new content at one of the fastest rates that players have ever seen.

New Mario Game Gets Beta Demo

In a rare showing, GameSpot has just announced that Nintendo will be offering an exclusive demo of the newest entry into the Mario franchise, letting Switch owners test out the beta for themselves for a limited time.

The game, Mario Tennis Aces, will be the first entry into the franchise’s spinoff series since the 2015 release of Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for the Wii U. According to Nintendo’s announcement, the demo will come in the form of a Pre-Launch Online Tournament held from June 1st to June 3rd.

So far, start and end times have only been announced for North America and Europe, showing two separate time frames for each region. North American activities will begin on June 1st at 6:00 PM PT and will run until June 3 at 11:59 PM PT (June 1st 9:00 PM ET to June 4th 2:59 AM ET). For the European side of things, the tournament will run from June 1st at 3:00 PM BST to June 3rd at 11:59 PM BST (June 1st 4:00 PM CEST to June 4th 12:59 AM CEST).

Only four characters have been announced as available for play in the demo, those being Mario, Peach, Bowser, and Yoshi, with the possibility of unlocking up to five more characters based on performance. Trailers and various announcements confirm that Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Rosalina, Daisy, Boo, Toad, Toadette, Donkey Kong, Chain Chomp, and Bowser Jr. will all be playable in the final game, but none have so far been confirmed as any of the five additional demo characters at this time.

Game modes announced will include online multiplayer against other opponents plus a single player mode against the computer. The demo must always be connected to the internet in order to function regardless of the mode chosen, but whether this will be the case for the full game when it’s released on June 22 is not yet known. Additionally, those who play the beta will have the chance to earn an alternate costume for Mario consisting of his traditional overalls when the full game comes out, though the process of earning this costume is not yet revealed.

SNES Classic to be available on Nintendo Switch, thanks to a hacker

Despite all of the recent innovations in the video game world, some gamers still long to play games on the game systems of previous generations. Among those systems is the SNES Classic which many people were hoping Nintendo might find a way to make available on the newer Switch device. Unfortunately, they haven’t and seem to have no plans to do so. However, there was at least one ambitious hacker out there who decided to make the classic platform virtually available on the newer one.

As Forbes reported, a hacker named Sam Breadman was able to use LovePotion in order to port the SNES Classic library onto a Switch. LovePotion was a tool first made for the Nintendo 3DS system. However, it was ported to the Nintendo Switch to help bring dreams to reality, or to a virtual gaming reality, sort of.

Breadman released a sort of teaser video on YouTube that shows off his skills. In the video which was originally discovered by Nintendo Life, the SNES Classic interface is shown on a Nintendo Switch. It also presents a few menus with Mega Man X, Donkey Kong Country, and Final Fantasy III among the playable games. Unfortunately, no gameplay is shown in the video. That’s because Breadman says it’s still in the early stages of being developed and isn’t giving the best gameplay performance. So, some fine tuning will be necessary.

The reason that a hacker could even do such a thing is due to a boot exploit within the Nintendo Switch devices. That exploit allows anyone with a 3D Printer and the right experience to hack the device. Some have even made a working Linux tablet out of the Switch using the boot exploit.

It’s said that Nintendo can fix the problem, but that will involve releasing new versions of the console with Nvidia Tegra chips that are free of the issue. So far there haven’t been any reports floating around that Nintendo plans to do this and that could be good for those people who wanted a virtual SNES Classic on their newer device.

So will this concept be available for other people? The comments on the YouTube video are already numerous with people asking if it’s available yet and wanting their own virtual SNES Classic for the Switch. If enough people get behind it with a good bit of funding, the “Classic” dream could eventually become a reality and make it to the Switch.

New Jurassic World Simulator to be released

No game exists yet for the latest Jurassic Park Movie. No one expects much from a video game based off of a movie and vice versa. Even the 2018 Tomb Raider failed to enthrall fans of the video game franchise. Frontier, the British company responsible for popular space combat simulator Elite Dangerous, is working on its next project. The new game will allow players to run their own dinosaur themed adventure park, according to the British newspaper The Guardian.

The theme park simulation game is not a new genre. Roller Coaster Tycoon is perhaps the best known example, but other such simulations exists. Games based off of dinosaurs are not new either. Ark: Survival Encounter is a popular crafting game that lets players ride dinosaurs in a prehistoric world. The designers are basing the new game on the recent movie Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Gamers have to wait for several months before the game enters the market. The sequel to Rise of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider will come out before the new offering from Frontier. Game features should be similar to other games in the genre, although new additions would deal with taking care of and managing an ecosystem. The game should also resemble games like SimCity and SimEarth in some ways.

Frontier plans to release the game on multiple systems, but most gamers believe the simulator games work best on the personal computer. Gamers can expect to download the game from Steam. No one knows if Valve is going to offer the new game with Elite Dangerous yet. PC and console gamers can always hope for a Steam sale offering both. Stranger things have been known to happen, like commercially successful movie sequels released twenty or even forty years after the original movie came out. It may have been about an inter stellar battle between good and evil. The latter may have happened long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Nick Vertucci Releases his Book; A Good Read for Real Estate Entrepreneurs

If you are in the real estate business, then Nick Vertucci should be a familiar name. You also probably know that he has been very instrumental in guiding emerging entrepreneurs through succeeding in the real estate business. Moreover, Vertucci is the founder and team leader of one real estate academy called NV Real Estate. From these abbreviations, he named the academy after himself. What you may not be acquainted with is the fact that Vertucci had a rough life growing up. How? You may be wondering. Well, to answer this, let us travel down his early life and career, shall we?

Vertucci’s Early Life

The early life of Nick Vertucci was filled with tremendous challenges. Although he had a hard-working father who chipped in most of the time, he had to supplement their income by working between odd jobs. Most of the time, he would arrive home late after a long day’s work while searching for supplementary income to take care of his family. Other than that, Vertucci was overly ambitious. Therefore, he always invented business ideas even if he did not have the luxury to access resources and implement the relevant concepts.

Perhaps everything changed when he turned ten because that was the period his father died. Like any other case of losing a close family member, Vertucci was outrightly devastated by the turn of events. Therefore, he decided to take up the role of his father and take care of his mother and siblings. That was the most difficult decision to make. However, he knew that a man has to fend for his family just like his father taught him in his last days on earth.

Delving Into Business

To fend for his mother and siblings, Vertucci delved into a taxi business. In fact, he would even spend nights in the cab. At the same time, he started a computer accessories business that sold computer parts. For some time, the company thrived in his leadership. In fact, he made enough to raise his siblings and take care of his mother. That was not all; he even got married and was now able to raise a family.

The dotcom Crush Hits Vertucci.

The dotcom bubble hit Nick Vertucci in 2000. The plague was characterized by tremendous and rapid growth in equity markets. Also fueled by significant investments in the internet sector, Vertucci’s computer business was adversely affected. That was the second and last major blow in his life. From that moment on, Vertucci has invested in real estate.

The Real Estate Business

It all began when his friend invited him to a real estate seminar for some product knowledge sessions. From the workshop, Vertucci learned that the real estate market could offer vast investment opportunities. That marked the beginning of a flourishing business in real estate.

The Book

Nick Vertucci has just released one of the books he has been working on for years. Seven Figure Decisions; Having the Balls to Succeed is a memoir of his early life, his struggles, success and the eventuality of loss in business. In this book, Nick Vertucci provides real estate entrepreneurs with insightful knowledge on how to sojourn in the world of complexities in real estate markets.

Most importantly, he identifies explicitly some of the lessons he has learned over the past years and how to incorporate these lessons into real-life situations. From the look at his life, Vertucci did not give into his previous challenges. When he lost his father, he decided to bounce back and invest in multiple businesses. As such, entrepreneurs need to understand that in business, challenges are not equivalent to failure.

Microsoft Planning to Give Out Names, Locations of Xbox Users to Game Publishers

In a disturbing turn of events, Microsoft’s new commitment to transparency has given some Xbox owners a bit of a fright. Though the company intended to explain more about what sort of data it collects (and subsequently gives out) from its players, many would likely have preferred to be kept in the dark.

GameSpot recently reported on a new intiative by Microsoft to be more open about the kind of data its collects and distributes. While good on the surface, things quickly took a turn for the worse after they revealed exactly what they could be sending to game and app publishers. Namely, a person’s name.

In addition to more standard information like games played, play style, or time in an app, Microsoft could also be sending a player’s country of origin and age range, as well as anything else included in a person’s Xbox Live profile. This would include their real name if this is something a person has chosen to enter.

Why a publisher would need this information or what they would intend to do with it isn’t known at this time, mainly because Microsoft claims they don’t know, either. In their statement on the matter (automatically displayed when a person logs into Xbox Live for the first time since the update), the company claims that it does not control what a publisher may do with a person’s information after they have given it to them, which doesn’t exactly breed confidence.

In addition to simple information, though, a person’s social data is also up for grabs, including “interactions and communications” with other players. Whether this means only written messages or that the Xbox One will now be recording everything a player says over the microphone is not known.

As bad as this may sound, there is a way to avoid it from happening. In both a person’s gaming console and through their account login on Microsoft’s webpage, players can choose to revoke access to their information, preventing it from being given out to publishers. By doing this, your data will hopefully be protected from any prying eyes.

A New Monster Hunter Movie Series

After selling 7.9 million units, Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World is taking the Monster Hunter story beyond the video game space. Constantin Film has secured the rights to put the video game story on the silver screen.

The video game adaptation will be budgeted at $60 million and will begin production in September. The German-based film company has tied Milla Jovovich to star in the film in an unnamed role. Milla’s husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, has also been linked to the Monster Hunter movie as the film’s writer and director. Jeremy Bolt is slated to produce.

Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich have been working together for years on other video game based movies. The couple has been working together on the Resident Evil franchise since 2002. They have recently completed Resident Evil: the Final Chapter in 2016. The movie was filmed in South Africa which is where they will be shooting the Monster Hunter project. South Africa has been a place of comfort for Anderson and Jovovich

While not much is known about what the story will look like, Anderson states that Monster Hunter will be the start of a new film series. Anderson will be implementing his unique style in the movie and will be sure to showcase Monster Hunter’s video game roots.

While Capcom will receive the credit for creating the Monster Hunter games, Constantin Film will be the only production company tied to the production of the movie. Mr. X, the Canadian-based visual effects company will also be working on the feature film after working with Anderson on his Resident Evil pictures.

Paul W.S. Anderson has started pre-production, but there is no information on a release date for the film just yet. Just like the title of the game, Monster Hunter has always been about the player capturing and slaying monsters. Although the games have never featured one individual character, it will be exciting to see what Anderson has in store for us when the movie is finally released.
