Weekend Warrior – Out With A Bang: It’s all about celebration this weekend for the Game Informer editors. We’re celebrating birthdays, upcoming holidays, endings (we’re finally wrapping up Red Dead Redemption II and our Top 10 lists), and starting something new. Many of us are getting closer to unlocking all the characters in Super Smash, while others are working on their backlogs before a new year of amazing games release. Don’t just read about our plans. Join in the conversation and let us know if you’re doing something fun in the comments below! Javy Gwaltney – I’ve snuck away earlier from the offices than my compatriots in order to spend time with family during my brother’s college graduation (congratulations Sloan!). I’m going to be getting caught up on the Western films (McCabe And Mrs. Miller) and books (The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford) I’ve taken on to fill that Red Dead Redemption II hole in my soul. There will probably be a lot of Super Smashing and Diabloing as I make my way through the holidays. Hope you all have a great holiday and see you in the new year, friends. Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I’m very excited to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I like Spider-Man, but I love innovative animation and since the very first trailer I have been excited to see it. The fact that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are involved at writing and producing capacities make it all the more exciting. I will forever be sad that their Han Solo movie doesn’t exist. Otherwise it will be assorted Christmas shopping excursions, Smash Bros. character unlocking, and god I hope I can make it to the end of Red Dead’s main story. I am loving it, but it is taking me forever. Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’m continuing my quest to fully...

Charles Martinet Attains World Record For Most Video Game Voiceovers As One Character: Over the three decades of Mario’s existence, he has gone from completely silent to voiced in periphery media by actors like Bob Hoskins and Captain Lou Albano to voiced in the video games by Charles Martinet. Martinet, a voice actor for things Skyrim, Resonance of Fate, and more, but by far his most famous role is the Italian plumber, and the two just got into the Guinness Book of World Records together. Charles Martinet just attained the record for voicing the same character in a video game. Martinet has played Mario one hundred times, which was given to him as of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Martinet didn’t necessarily beat anyone for this title, the world record was created for him, but it stands to reason that no one else comes close. The only other characters that might come close are Luigi and Wario, who are also voiced by Martinet, so his legacy is probably safe. The Mario voice actor also keeps a fairly active Instagram, as seen above, where he approaches people and talks to them in the Mario voice. It is not known whether Martinet will be playing Mario in the upcoming animated movie. For now, though, he can add World Record Holder to his business cards.

Soundweaver Introduces a New Way to Play Skyforge on Xbox One: When we create an update for Skyforge, we always look at the bigger picture and the ways you can interact with the world. We want players to find new ways to play the game and make each class that we create a fun and fresh experience. With Distant Frequencies, we might have achieved just that. The Soundweaver is a new spin of the Bard class from classic RPGs. Many of our colleagues are fans of tabletop games, and some of them were actively pushing for a musician class in Skyforge. However, we didn’t want to just make a musician that plays tunes at the press of a button. We wanted to make it interactive, almost like a rhythm game. When the first concepts started to make their rounds in our studio, we knew we had something really unique coming up. In the end, we just needed a fitting theme for our new class – and this is where it got tricky, to say the least. In Skyforge, we explore many different universes, ranging from mythological creatures, gods and demons, to machines and virtual worlds. Therefore, when pinpointing a new style for a music-themed player class, we had many different goals and ideas in mind. Should it be like a flute player from a forest? Or maybe a Viking class blowing a huge horn? But with the influence of our recent Battle Royale mode, we were in the mood for a more tech-oriented class and sketched out concepts for an 80s synthwave-guitarist. That’s when things started to click, and how we got our very own Soundweaver! As mentioned before, we wanted to make this class play more like a rhythmic game, which means that if you press the base attacks in the right timing, the Soundweaver will get different types of...

Apple is producing new content about Snoopy and other Peanuts characters: Apple has signed a deal with DHX Media that will see the Canadian broadcaster producing new shows, specials and short films about Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang. That includes exclusive short-form content for Apple starring astronaut Snoopy, aimed at getting kids excited about STEM. Peanuts was created by Charles Schulz, who wrote and illustrated the popular comic strip for five decades, starting in 1950. The characters moved to television in the 1960s with “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” which was followed by a long list of specials. And they recently returned to the big screen in the computer animated “Peanuts Movie,” which grossed $246 million worldwide. DHX acquired a controlling stake in Peanuts last year (the remaining 20 percent stake is still held by the Schulz family). Apple, meanwhile, has been lining up lots of new, family-friendly content for its upcoming streaming service. That includes also enlisting Sesame Workshop to create original programming (not Sesame Street, which recently moved to HBO). By the way, if you only know Peanuts secondhand, through Snoopy dolls or other merchandise, it’s worth revisiting the early strips (restored to print by Fantagraphics), which are among the finest you’ll ever read. There, you can fully appreciate Schulz’s art, as well as his ability to craft unforgettable jokes from Charlie Brown’s bleak outlook and constant heartbreak.

Stardew Valley Developer Puts New Project On Hold To Double-Down On Farming Game: After a recent announcement that Eric Barone has retained the publishing rights to his game Stardew Valley, there were still a lot of open questions about the future of the game and what Barone’s one-man studio ConcernedApe will be doing next. In a new blog post, Barone revealed those plans. “As many of you know, I’ve been working on a new game for a while. I haven’t revealed anything about it, except that it takes place in the same universe as Stardew Valley,” Barone wrote. “I’ve been deliberately secretive about it because I want to be able to work on it without any pressure for the time being. I also want to make sure the concept is fully realized before revealing anything, because once it’s out there, I’m going to have to fully commit to it. I’m a pretty cautious person when it comes to this sort of thing.” ConcernedApe plans to bolster their development resources for the game, but because that is a future plan and requires leaving Stardew Valley behind, Barone does not want to move on to it quite yet. Since he just got the rights to self-publish Stardew Valley, that is going to remain his main priority. “In short,” Barone says, “what I’m saying is that I am going to keep making new content for Stardew Valley. In fact, I’ve recently put my other game on the back-burner and have been in the process of creating a new free content update.” In the post, Barone explains that he wants to work on both projects at once, but it’s currently unfeasible to do so. In the meantime, he plans to work on the free update he alluded to, as well as the fixes to the current versions to make sure everything is up to par. The multiplayer update...

Discord announces a 90/10 revenue split for their upcoming games store: After gaming chat app startup Discord announced in August that they were building out a games store, today, they’ve detailed that they’ll be pursuing a very competitive 90/10 revenue split for self-published titles in 2019. In addition, the company revealed that they now have 200 million active users on their chat app, up from 130 million users in May. The announcement follows a storefront launch from Epic Games last week with an 88/12 revenue split. Valve’s Steam store had typically offered a constant 70/30 revenue split for all developers regardless of the revenues they were pulling in. The company recently announced that Steam would give a more favorable split to devs pulling in more revenue. Discord called up some of their thinking in a company blog post: Why does it cost 30% to distribute games? Is this the only reason developers are building their own stores and launchers to distribute games? Turns out, it does not cost 30% to distribute games in 2018. Steam’s efforts are largely focused on holding onto big developers, but indie devs now have to balance what advantages they’re earning by establishing their central home on a platform filled with tons of titles that’s also taking a more substantial cut. This leaves some room for Discord to attract the self-publishing indies though it’s still an uphill battle for the company that’s up against some big competitors.

Facebook restructures Building 8, separating projects into Reality Labs and Portal groups: Facebook is restructuring its experimental hardware efforts and giving its moonshot projects a home within its AR/VR research division. The restructuring, reported by Business Insider (paywalled), didn’t result in any layoffs but did see some shifts of teams as the old Building 8 group rebranded to Portal and some projects moved to the former Oculus Research group (now, Facebook Reality Lab). A Facebook spokesperson confirmed the reorganization to Business Insider. TechCrunch has reached out to Facebook for further comment. This is misleading. We renamed the Building 8 team Portal after that device launch. The research we initially started in Building 8 continues in our Facebook Reality Labs research group. — Boz (@boztank) December 14, 2018 The Building 8 brand is dead but the big change seems to be Facebook moving its more headline-grabbing experiments further away from its nearly ready-for-production ideas. With some of the more experimental hardware projects at Facebook, like a computer brain interface, “soft” robotics, and a project to “hear” through a skin-worn device, moving to Facebook Reality Labs, it’s clear that the organization once centered around AR/VR technologies is seeing its scope expand to more distant reaching technologies that aren’t vaguely ready for consumer products yet. Meanwhile, the Portal group seems to be where some of Facebook’s more in-reach consumer hardware products are living with the newly-released video chat device serving as the foundation. The leader of Building 8, Rafa Carmago, who took over after the departure of Regina Dugan, is the VP of the Portal team now. Meanwhile, Facebook Reality Labs is still led by Michael Abrash who has long held a senior presence in the company’s AR/VR ambitions. Having products like Portal that are already for sale fall under the same leadership as invasive brain chips research probably didn’t make a ton of organizational...

Disney’s invested in educational gaming app Kahoot, now at a $376M valuation: When Kahoot, the startup that operates a popular platform for user-generated educational gaming, raised $15 million in October of this year, we mentioned that Disney had a stake in the company by way of the Disney Accelerator, and it had an option to become a larger shareholder if it exercised its warrants. Now with some 60 million games on its platform, today Kahoot announced that this has come to pass: Disney is taking that option, working out to a four percent stake in the startup at a $376 million valuation, based on the current share price of 28 Norwegian kroner (shares of Kahoot are traded on the Norway OTC as an unlisted stock). It makes Disney’s stake in the app worth about $15 million, although the actual value of the warrants Disney is exercising is smaller than this. Kahoot declined to comment for this story beyond the investment announcement posted on the exchange, but for some context, this is a nice bump up in Kahoot’s valuation from October, when it was at $300 million. Other sizeable and notable investors in the company include Microsoft and Nordic investor Northzone (which has backed Spotify and other significant startups out of the region). On the part of Disney, it’s not clear yet whether its Kahoot stake will lead to more Disney content on the platform, or if this is more of an arm’s length financial backing. The two have already put Lucasfilm content on Kahoot and there may be more to come. The entertainment giant has made nearly 50 investments by way of its accelerator program. In some cases, it increases those to more significant holdings, as it has in the case of HQ Trivia, Sphero, Epic Games (the company behind Fortnite, a very different take on gaming compared to Kahoot), Samba TV and more. Disney has... Continue Reading The post Disney’s invested in educational gaming app Kahoot, now at a $376M valuation appeared first on PlanYour.Website. http://dlvr.it/Qtdnjb #TechNews
