The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii) – Skyward Sword Texture Pack In The Works

Some clever modders are working on an interesting mod for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This mod is designed to replace the TP textures with those from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. TP was more of a darker, grittier Zelda game, whereas SS was more colorful and cheerful. If you wanted to play TP with more colorful or cheerful graphics, then you’ll want to keep an eye on this. It’s not complete yet, but progress is being made as seen in these screenshots:

Australia – EarthBound Receives ACB Rating

Now here’s something I didn’t expect. The Virtual Console version of EarthBound has received a rating from the Australian Classification Board (ACB) and it the rating it was given? M for Mature. Now granted I haven’t played EarthBound much, but I don’t really think Nintendo would’ve released a game in the 90s that was M rated. I mean here in the U.S. it was rated KA (Kids to Adults), which was the predecessor to the E rating (Everyone). Anyways here’s a look at the rating from ACB:

Watch_Dogs (PS4) – Cell Phone Connectivity Feature

In a recent video interview, Watch_Dogs Senior Producer Dominic Guay discussed a connectivity feature for the game. Guay said that “one of the core pillars is connectivity.” In addition Guay mentions some sort of cell phone application for Watch_Dogs saying:

“We wanted the player to be able to connect to Watch_Dogs even through his mobile. Be able to play directly with people who are on their console, who are on their PlayStation 4, even if he’s on the bus. Basically to be attached to our game world even when he steps out of the living room.”

This quote obviously mentions the PS4 by name, so this could be a PS4 only feature, or perhaps it will be used for other platforms as well, that remains to be seen. Here’s the full video:
