Smash-bros-imageNintendo loves to sell its hardware along with its software, which is one of the reasons why you won’t be seeing Nintendo’s main franchises making its way onto non-Nintendo consoles or mobile devices anytime soon. That being said, earlier this year Nintendo released a Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle and we’re sure many gamers are wondering if the same could happen for Super Smash Bros.

Well it turns out that could be a possibility. This is according to the folks at GoNintendo who had recently spotted a Super Smash Bros. Wii U bundle on Amazon UK’s website. Unfortunately there was no accompanying image so we can’t be 100% sure that this bundle is the real deal, but like we said given Nintendo’s practices in the past, it wouldn’t be out of the question.

diablo3header-1337811400The Diablo franchise which started off as an action RPG game certainly seemed like a more obvious candidate to be made into an MMORPG, versus the Warcraft franchise which was an RTS game. Now Blizzard has entertained the idea of a Diablo MMO in the past, but it looks like things have changed.

Speaking to the folks at Kotaku, lead content designer for Diablo Kevin Martens said that discussions to turn Diablo into an MMO are no longer happening. “There’s no discussion about a Diablo MMO anymore. It was a really interesting idea back when we were into it, but I think Diablo has a really strong fantasy on its own. Having a thousand people playing it with you on a server doesn’t dramatically increase it.” Read full post →Diablo As An MMORPG No Longer In Discussions At Blizzard


amiiboThe Skylanders video game and toys is an interesting concept as it allows gamers to not only collect physical toys, but they are also able to use these toys in the game. Considering that Skylanders was actually outselling other action figures according to a report from last year, it didn’t come as a surprise when Nintendo announced their Amiibo figurines earlier this year.

That being said, could Nintendo be considering allowing third-party developers access to their Amiibo figures to be used in their games? Considering that Nintendo is rather protective of their IP to the extent that they refuse to create mobile games, it is surprising to learn that third-party dev support for the Amiibo figurines is a possibility.

blizzard argiWorld of Warcraft gamers, if you’re the type that likes to collect every single mount and pet and toy that Blizzard has included in the game, here’s one that you might be interested in. Blizzard has recently unveiled a new pet that they will be selling in their online store called Argi. This is a pet based on the Warlords of Draenor theme and will be selling for around $10.

Not only will this pet make a good addition for collectors in the game, but it will also be benefiting those who are less fortunate. The pet has been announced as part of Blizzard’s charitable efforts and according to Blizzard, 100% of the “adoption” fee will be going to support the American Red Cross and their Ebola relief efforts.

We’re not sure how many of you guys have actually thought that wouldn’t it be cool if you had a MOBA that you could play on your phone? Given that most MOBAs tend to be rather drawn out affairs and requires a lot of scrolling around on the screen, a phone really doesn’t seem to be the best place for it.

That being said, developers Super Evil Megacorp begs to differ and come later this month, the company’s MOBA for iOS devices Vainglory will be made available for download. Super Evil Megacorp’s team comprises of developers from Riot, Blizzard, and Rockstar, so safe to say that they have a lot of experience.

It has been speculated that perhaps an announcement at CES 2015 is a possibility and this will happen in January 2015.

screen-shot-2014-11-09-at-5-57-39-pmIt was just earlier year that there were complaints about iMessage in which users reported that despite them switching to a different platform, such as Android, they were still unable to receive their messages, so much so that a lawsuit was actually filed against Apple over that particular issue.

Basically for those unfamiliar, iMessage is Apple’s instant messenger solution. It is able to detect when the other user is an iOS user, in which the message sent from from an iOS device to another iOS device will be sent as an iMessage as opposed to a regular SMS. Well the good news is that Apple has since published a tool on its website in which it allows users to deregister their number to remove it from iMessage.
