A recent report by the BBC says that head teachers in Cheshire in the United Kingdom will report parents to the authorities if they find out that their children have been playing 18+ games like Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty. Schools have sent out letters warning parents of the risk of them allowing their children to play unsuitable video games.
“We are trying to help parents to keep their children as safe as possible in this digital era.
“It is so easy for children to end up in the wrong place and parents find it helpful to have some very clear guidelines.”
We all know that The Legend of Zelda Wii U has been delayed until sometime next year, so what other games are Wii U owners looking forward to this year? Well, it turns out that Monolith’s Xenoblade Chronicles X is the top of Game Informer readers lists and rightly so as the original Xenoblade Chronicles was one of the best JRPG’s of recent years. Xenoblade Chronicles X is followed by Star Fox Wii U and Splatoon. You can see the results in the pie chart above.
We’ve been waiting quite a while over here in Europe for Azure Striker Gunvolt, but we are going to get some concrete information regarding a release sometime next week. Inti Creates tweeted that they have some news about the fast and frantic 2D shooter which has been well received by both gamers and the press. Let’s just hope we get a release date.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
Capcom has announced that it will be holding a special Monster Hunter themed event on May 31st. We have no idea what will be shown, but with Monster Hunter 4 already out the door everyone will be looking to see what’s next. Maybe we will see the next Monster Hunter game on consoles? We won’t really know until the event takes place. It should certainly be exciting.
It’s that time again as Game Trailers has produced another of their top ten lists.

10. Wii U
9. Game Boy Advance
8. Nintendo 3DS
6. Nintendo DS
4. Game Boy

We all heard the news yesterday that Zelda has been delayed and won’t be shown at this year’s E3 event in June. A Nintendo of America spokesperson has clarified to IGN that the company is only focussing on showing 2015 titles at E3 this year. We still don’t know if it’s going to be an E3 themed Nintendo Direct or alternatively a traditional stage conference. Anyway, here’s what the representative told the publication.
“As Mr. Aonuma announced, The Legend of Zelda game for Wii U is no longer targeted as a 2015 release. Rather than sticking to a specific schedule, the team wants to make this the most complete and the best game it can possibly be. The new launch timing has not yet been determined. Because we’d like to focus on developing the game, we aren’t planning on showing it at this year’s E3, where we will be highlighting games launching in 2015. We will let you know when we’re ready to share more specifics.”
Various members of the Nintendo sub-Reddit have nominated Samus from the Super Metroid series as a name for the surface features on Pluto and Charon. The campaign started last night and already has 1075 up-votes. You can nominate Samus here and write a little bit about the reasoning behind your vote.
Thanks, Portal Dark
