The Written Update episode 16

Hello Fellow Cravers. It’s time to get updated on the weeks news, UK charts and game releases this week. Sorry that there is no video this week, we had to go written, hopefully everything will be back to normal next week.

NEWS
3) Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire to give first shiny Mega pokemon

New mega-evolutions for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire include Mega Salamence, Mega Lopunny and Mega Altaria, as seen in the latest trailer for the game bellow, launching Nov. 21 on Nintendo 3DS.


Additionally, once the game launches, players can get “an incredibly rare Shiny Beldum holding a Mega Stone,” through an in-game distribution beginning on the launch date. Once evolved into Shiny Metagross, the Mega Stone allows a Mega Evolution into — wait for it — Shiny Mega Metagross.

Pikachu also shows up in five cosplay outfits — Rock Star, Pop Star, Ph.D, Belle and Libre, all with special moves.

2) Destiny’s Beta Characters cannot be transferred to full released title

For those hoping you could keep your character from the Destiny beta, well I have some bad news for you. Bungie’s weekly update has said definitively that Destiny will change too much between now and its release date for this to be feasible.

“This is the last time we’ll ask you to part with your hero,” Bungie wrote. “On Sept. 9, you can create a Guardian who will keep you company for a good, long time. On a long-enough timeline, you might decide to delete him or her and start over again — but that will be your call to make.”

So Destiny beta players will have to go back over the missions they played in reaching level 8, the level cap during the beta. It probably would be more remarkable if one’s progress was preserved, but given the size of the beta population, it was probably necessary to make this clarification.

Destiny’s beta ended July 27, with 4.6 million players participating on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Activision declared that the largest open beta test for a console game in history.

1) Twitch backtracks on new rules

Video livestreaming platform Twitch announced this week changes to its plans to mute copyrighted music in user videos and limit users to two hours of saved highlight videos, which you can read here.

After some negative responses from the twitch community, Twitch announced that effectively immediately, Twitch is removing the maximum time limit on highlight videos. This means that while a lot of archived content will still be removed from the site, highlight videos will remain, and users will not be limited to two-hour chunks.

Twitch is also deploying an “appeal” button for videos that have been flagged for copyrighted music by the Audio Recognition system.

“We recognize that the system is not yet perfect,” said Twitch’s VP of marketing and communications, Matthew DiPietro. “We want to make this system as fair and unobtrusive as possible, and we greatly appreciate your help.”
