So hey wow this week’s episode of Attack on Titan ended in a bit of a cliffhanger, didn’t it? Only two episodes to go!

  • Destructoid have an informative interview with Nintendo of America’s Dan Adelman and Damon Baker. Adelman is in charge of business development at NoA, while Baker is NoA’s licensing manager. The interview centres around Nintendo’s eShop and the company’s future plans. Both seem to be aware of the problems surrounding the current eShop system, and are working to make big improvements to it in the future.
  • Here’s a trailer for Liberation Maiden SIN, the sequel to Grasshopper Manufacture’s Liberation Maiden, which launched on 3DS and iOS earlier this year.
    • We mentioned JJ Abrams’ dissatisfaction with the Star Trek game yesterday. Here’s the full video for you to enjoy:

    • Microsoft’s Phil Spencer revealed in a series of tweets that “conversations have been had” in regards to a new Geometry Wars game. The series, which started out as a minigame in Bizarre Creations’ Project Gotham Racing 2, appeared to have died with the studio, however it looks like something may be in the works to bring it back.
    • PayPal have raised the ire of many Kickstarter hopefuls and backers this week after they froze money for a number of Kickstarter-funded game projects. The good news is that the company is now working on a policy to deal with funds raised in such a way. PayPal is somewhat notorious for freezing accounts for seemingly arbitrary reasons, so hopefully this is the beginning of a change across the entire company.
    • Riot have released a new video emphasising teamwork and sportsmanship in its infinitely popular League of Legends title. According to the video, players are more likely to win when they play in a sporting manner, rather than “going the full five-year old”. Enjoy:
