    • Yoichi Wada is stepping down from his position as Square Enix’s president.
    • At GDC Nintendo announced Miiverse as a smartphone and web-based app.
    • Nintendo then continued to bring in web and app developers to the Wii U.
    • And! They removed a rule that required all Nintendo developers have a physical office.

    Here’s the new episode of Nerdy News!

    What do you think?

    Will restructuring Square Enix’s executives actually change the way the company is run? Will you use the Miiverse app to keep in touch with your friends? Do you think reaching out to Indie Developers is a good way for Nintendo to recoup their losses? Or does this move seem more focused on changing their image as a company ‘set in its ways’?

      Hey now don’t forget about Sony announcing the PlayStation Pub Fund at GDC! It’s for indie developers to be able to publish games on PS4! Blacklight and Primal Carnage sequels were the first to join The Witness as former PC-only titles now coming to the console. :-)

      Excellent point! Sony, too is reaching out to Indie devs, the trend is really amazing because it seems like one company after the other is throwing their hands up and saying “let’s give the people what they want”. Finally. I mean, the Big Devs are loosing money hand-over-fist while a lot of Indie games are having critical AND commercial success. It’s a no-brainer at this point: being set in their ways is a mistake for this fast-paced industry.

      Oh my gawd, I hadn’t heard of Primal Carnage before. I freaking love dinosaurs. Thanks for the comment!
