Video games sales
Today, Gfk shared the Top 3 Software for the first half of 2017, for various countries around the world. Most of the games are from third-party publishers, and are multiplatforms, but Nintendo did manage to “sneak” in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in quite a few country… it even topped sales in three countries: France, Sweden, and Norway.
Here’s the infographic shared by Gfk:
Today, Red Column shared more details about the upcoming update for 3Souls. It will change the way the camera is positioned throughout the whole game: now, the player will no longer be at the center of the screen when at the outer edges of a stage, allowing you see more of it.
Before, the camera was always following the player, who would stay at the center of the screen. This caused problem when at the outer edges of a level: you could not see what was in front, and the screen showed lots of things you didn’t really need anymore. With this update, this will no longer be the case!
Here’s a picture showing this change in effect, in Sleepless City (from the Nophes episode):
