Generozity - PAX 2018


Below is an update from the guys over at Generozity with a wrap up of this years fund raising during the weekend of PAX 2018. 

A big congrats to them and everyone who supported their cause. 

"GenerOZity can't thank you enough for your fantastic support. Putting on a live convention show on top of live-streaming internationally was immensely fun, but it's just the start. It's a starting line that we've needed time, patience, and a lot of help to get to - and we got there with you.


Being a part of PAX Aus 2018 was fantastic and educational. While we'll be getting back to our larger-scale format for the next biannual stream (with more hours, guests, and the Night Shift™), we'll be using the experience to step up our game for future live audience events. 


Interacting with Australian gamers, watching donations to CheckPoint and Child's Play roll in, seeing people support their favourite creators, and having a live studio audience where people could come and interact with us - this was all a humbling experience. By the time PAX closed, we'd raised $8,553.40 AUD. That's over half of GenerOZity #4's total, and within only 33% of time from last show!

We’ll definitely be aiming to return next PAX (if they’ll have us again!). With that, we’re also going to be trying some more weird and experimental stuff - like our panel this year!

You’ve all inspired us to work on delivering better experiences not just for viewers at home, but future studio audiences. Over the next year we’ll be unveiling some big plans and ambitious goals. We hope that we’ll be able to work with you on them every step of the way, because it’s been a wild ride so far and you were a big part of getting here."

Thanks for all the GenerOZity,
Austin, Joel, Leto, Kevin & Shlee

p.s. We would like to thank the Those Wizards team for volunteering their time to capture and produce some-eye melting content during the PAX Aus expo. Rad.

Pokémon Let's Go Launches Today

EXPERIENCE A CLASSIC POKÉMON TALE INSPIRED BY POKÉMON GO WHEN POKÉMON: LET’S GO, PIKACHU! AND POKÉMON: LET’S GO, EEVEE! LAUNCH ON NINTENDO SWITCH TODAY

Explore the Kanto region with a friend or go solo, use the Poké Ball Plus to catch dozens of varied Pokémon, and connect to the Pokémon GO app to transfer Pokémon


With over 300 million Pokémon games sold worldwide to date, and more than 800 million downloads of Pokémon GO, the Pokémon phenomenon that came to Australia and New Zealand in 1998 is set to get even stronger with today’s launch of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! These two new mainline Pokémon games are available exclusively for Nintendo Switch, the unique home console from Nintendo that can be played anywhere, anytime, with anyone, which has passed 22 million consoles sold worldwide.

Players of Pokémon GO will be able to transfer select Pokémon caught in the real world to their Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! game by connecting their smart device to the Nintendo Switch console via Bluetooth Low Energy connection.

Enjoy the story and find out where it all began 

With these new titles’ accessible gameplay, Pokémon players from the series’ 20-year history, and anyone who discovered the series through Pokémon GO, are all invited to become a Pokémon Trainer in a classic Pokémon story. Beginning their journey in Pallet Town, players will meet, catch, and raise many Pokémon on their journey to become the best Pokémon Trainer that they can be. In a story based on Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition brought to the living room in high definition, players will need to work with their partner Pikachu or partner Eevee to thwart the dastardly plans of Team Rocket, who wish to take advantage of Pokémon for their nefarious ends. Even after the story ends, there’s more to do, with the challenge of battling skilled Master Trainers, trying to catch all 151 Pokémon, and more. Plus, any Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region caught in Pokémon GO can be transferred to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

Invite a friend to join the adventure anytime, anywhere 
Friends and family can get in on the fun and give a helping hand with the Support Play feature. For example, with this feature it’s possible for two siblings to explore the world together using a single Joy-Con and a Poké Ball Plus (or a single Joy-Con each) – they can even both have a Pokémon travel alongside them as well. In battles, both players will be able to control a Pokémon and issue it commands, giving them the upper hand, while they can boost their chances of catching wild Pokémon by throwing Poké Balls at the same time. And with the benefits of the Nintendo Switch console, friends and family alike can play on their TV at home or take it with them on their travels to catch Pokémon together anytime, anywhere.

Catch Pokémon like never before with the Poké Ball Plus 
For the first time in the Pokémon series, players can grab a Poké Ball Plus to catch Pokémon with a simple throwing action just like a Pokémon Trainer would. The Poké Ball Plus is a Poké Ball-shaped device that can be used to play and catch Pokémon in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! in place of the Joy-Con. In addition to having motion controls, the Poké Ball and players will actually feel it rumble and hear the Pokémon inside – it feels like you really caught a Pokémon.

The Poké Ball Plus is also compatible with Pokémon GO, so while connected, players no longer need to look at their phone to know if a Pokémon appears nearby. Pressing the button on Poké Ball Plus throws a Poké Ball, and the device will light up and vibrate to let players know if their catch was successful. As long as Poké Ball Plus is connected to players’ smartphones, it’ll also measure the distance they travel, so they can hatch eggs or get candy from their buddy Pokémon.

Connect to Pokémon Go for even more fun
There is a deep connection between Pokémon GO and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, as Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region that players have caught in Pokémon GO can be brought into these two new Nintendo Switch games.

The GO Park complex is where players’ Pokémon will arrive after syncing their Pokémon GO game with Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! It’s here where players will be able to see their Pokémon running around and having fun. There's no limit to the number of Pokémon GO accounts that can be tied to a single save file in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! which means players are not limited to connecting with just their own Pokémon GO account – they can get Pokémon from friends and family, too.

Join Pikachu or Eevee on an adventure across the Kanto region and catch Pokémon in a whole new way when Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! launch today on Nintendo Switch. Experience a classic Pokémon story and catch Pokémon with the Poké Ball Plus controller, while it’s possible to transfer Pokémon caught with Pokémon GO to both Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! game.

Episode 2: 24Hrs Later




The sound of your boots echo down the long corridor. Never before have you been to the UN headquarters, to bad it is under such terrible circumstances. Quickening your pace you realise up ahead that the doors to the room you're supposed to be in are already shut. Sneaking inside you hear the familiar booming voice of Kenneth Saxe, Secretary-General of the UN.

"I WANT ANSWERS!"
"Who is responsible? Why was there nothing reported about this?"

Looking around you notice that there are delegates from all 193 members of the United Nations, not a single seat is empty, and all of them look nervous.

The USA is the first to speak.

"We have been keeping an eye online and no-one has claimed responsibility. In fact it has been the opposite. Terrorist groups we would normally target have been coming forward and claiming they had nothing to do with the attacks. They have in large distanced themselves completely.
We have heard no chatter and given the coordination of the attacks we are at a loss."

Leaning in you remind the Major General of the strange theories that you had been researching only to be told to keep quiet. Secretary-General Saxe sees the interaction between you and the Major General and instantly calls to you.

You excuse yourself for the interruption and  return to your seat.

"Don't be shy son! Let us hear what you have to say."

The Major General lets out a sigh as he gives you an approving nod.

"Well sir, I have been in charge of investigating and reporting on possible legends and stories that are told around the world and seeing if there's any basis in fact. Some time ago we were made aware of a story out of South America that was originally thought as laughable but we have been investigating nonetheless. "

"And what does this have to do with what has happened?"

Clearing your throat with a nervous cough you continue.

"Well the stories we have been investigating show that a small group fled to South America in the late 1940's and have been in hiding since then. These were rumoured to be remnants of the Nazi regime.
Until recently we believed if they did in fact get to South America they would have grown old and died out."

"Are you trying to tell me that Hitler is behind this?"

"No Sir not at all. Adolf Hitler did in fact die in 1945. However new evidence has been uncovered that showed before his death he fathered two children with a third on the way.
They were kept secret as he and Eva Braun were only married some 40 hours before his death. "

"So what does this all mean? It sounds to me like something made up around a campfire."

"Well we have a strong belief that the SS members that fled have set up a small time drug cartel  in the jungles of Brazil that has continued to grow till this day. "

The room erupted in utter chaos. Delegates unable to process this information demanded to know more. The majority of the room was up in arms as they didn't believe the information was credible.
Secretary-general Saxe demanded order and silence soon returned, save for a few under breath comments.

Turning to you his voice boomed throughout the room.

"How long have you had this information?"

"We've been collecting and piecing together over the last decade or so."

"What evidence do you have?"

"At this stage it is mostly hearsay."

The Major General tries to interject but is quickly silenced.

"So what you are saying is you have no evidence. You have caused an uproar on a belief? It sounds to me that there is no connection here."

"Sir I would have agreed with you, however we have recently uncovered one piece of evidence that may be the missing link to all of this."

Reaching into your pocket you pull a drive and gesture towards the media booth.

"This has been popping up time and time again, throughout the world."

The image on the screens around the room shows the Swastika intertwined with the Trinity symbol on what appears to be a shipment of drugs.


"Here it is again stamped into pills. And numerous known drug traffickers have been seen with this tattooed on them."

A hush has now fallen over the room, your evidence has suddenly become very relevant.

The German Ambassador slowly rises to her feet. With an almost broken sounding voice she confirms your worst fears.

"At the time of the attacks yesterday we had a cyber attack on our government system."
She takes a moment to right herself.

"On investigation we were directed to a website with the same symbol. The same phrase was on repeat."

"Die Dreieinigkeit wird wieder herrschen"

"The Trinity will rule again."

There was a deafening sound of silence, as if everyone in that room had held their breath. Could any of this be real? Surely not. 

Secretary-General Saxe's voice brings life back to the room. 

"We need fast and  decisive action to confirm if this threat is the cause and we need it now."
"What is your rank son?"

"Forgive me Secretary-General Saxe, I no longer hold an official rank. I am ex SASR now doing research work with the British security government."

Secretary-General Saxe's gaze narrows. 

"Can the members of the Security Council please follow me. I have a plan that will require your attention and support."  

He gestures for you to follow also.

The German delegates ask to be included given the possible ties to them and the attack directed at their government. Saxe agrees and we all leave. 

The walk to the next room was a brisk one. No one spoke and a nervous tension filled the air. This was nothing compared to what was to come. 

Once behind closed doors again the Secretary-General belines for you. 

"Do you know where this group is located?

"No"

"Do you suspect another attack?"

"Nothing confirmed but I would say yes."

"Right this is what we are going to do."

Secretary-General Saxe lays out his plan. 
Each of the security council members is to supply two of their best special forces personnel to hunt down this "Trinity" group. The team will report directly to the Secretary-General with the security council kept in the loop. 
The orders are to locate and provide recon on the operation. 

You ask the question when really you should have stayed quiet. 

"Who will I be briefing on the details. There is a lot to go through here."

Secretary-General Saxe gives a wrye smile. 

"Oh no son, you're going along. I hereby recall you to active duty."
"Pack your bags" 

Tales from The West Virginia Hills


76 Livestream ft. Rick & Morty, Ninja, Logic

Feeling schwifty? You're about to. We’re taking the biggest streamer on the planet, a once-in-a-generation rap talent, the most beloved animated comedy duo of our time, and forcing them to survive together in the wasteland of Appalachia. The good news is you don’t have to travel to an alternate dimension to find out what happens!  Tune in to Mixer or Twitch on Friday, 9th November for an unprecedented Fallout 76 stream on Xbox One featuring Ninja, Logic, and none other than Rick and Morty (yes, that Rick and Morty) for what is sure to be the streaming event of the year.

Catch all the action beginning at 1:00pm AEDT on Friday, 9th November.  


Tales from the West Virginia Hills

The world of Fallout 76 is steeped in mystery. But when you’re not trying to discover what happened to everyone after the bombs dropped, you might find yourself asking a different question: What’s that figure, lurking in the dark? The answer probably isn’t as friendly as you might like. The Tales from the West Virginia Hills holotape series is here to give you an idea of what to look out for if you hope to survive.

Curse of the Wendigo! - https://youtu.be/6mDe9Plv8bU

It has been said that money is the root of all evil. So, when greed knows no bounds and avarice goes unchecked, what other appetites might take hold? Curse of the Wendigo! chews over this very question.

Sideshow Snallygaster - https://youtu.be/YFlM8SNSO94

In Sideshow Snallygaster, the carnival has come to the Tyler County Fairgrounds. Billy Harding and his dad wander past the games and rides as a sideshow Barker touts a frightful attraction.

The Mothman Cometh! - https://youtu.be/lLQ2Dlth9SM

Not all creatures are of the land; some stalk the skies. One such boogeyman has been reported for generations by mystified West Virginians. The Mothman Cometh! begins in Morgantown Municipal Hospital. We join young Mary Scarberry at her bedside as she wakes, looking a little worse for wear.

The Best of Grafton - https://youtu.be/zdKX6htqR50

The Beast of Grafton takes place in the rural hills near Grafton, where locals have reported a strange creature lurking in the woods. Robbie Cockrell and Peggy Mansfield were out on a date, celebrating Peggy's birthday, and a full moon loomed large as they drove.

The Strange Encounter In Flatwoods - https://youtu.be/agAa-r-h9p4


Who Goes There?: The Strange Encounter In Flatwoods opens on a fateful night, when a young Pioneer Scout, Fred Fisher, finds himself in quite the predicament, having taken a spill and fallen into a dark place.

Hearthstone Welcomes 100 Million players to the Virtual Tavern



  • Blizzard Entertainment’s free-to-play digital card game has defied the odds and become one of the most popular online games in the world
  • Special thank-you event for players, running 8- 11 November AEDT/NZDT, will offer free card packs and more


A little over five years ago, a few Blizzard Entertainment developers were toiling away on a small passion project: Hearthstone®, a free-to-play digital collectible card game at a time when such games were not front of mind for most. They based the game on the company’s Warcraft® universe and polished every aspect—from the flash of the animations to the bombastic voice lines of the heroes—and launched it to critical acclaim globally in 2014. Today Blizzard announced that Hearthstone has hit the 100-million-player mark.

“Reaching 100 million players is a huge milestone for Hearthstone, but what matters to us even more is the fact that so many people around the world have embraced the spirit of the game,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “Whether at events like BlizzCon® and Fireside Gatherings or just in tuning in to watch their favourite streamers, it’s been so inspiring to see millions of players and fans coming together, online and in real life, to participate in the Hearthstone community.”

A Different Kind of Mass Appeal

Hearthstone features a deceptively simple format in which players build digital card decks and duel each other head-to-head or play through one of several different card-based Solo Adventures. As a result of its charm and accessibility—as well as the corresponding entertainment and education provided by numerous talented community content creators—Hearthstone has consistently been a leading game on media platforms like Twitch and YouTube.

As a card-based game, Hearthstone is unlike any of the other games regularly in the top ranks on those platforms. In addition to its highly accessible card-vs.-card gameplay and the colourful personality that comes through its vibrant audio and visual elements, a major difference is that all player-to-player communication takes place through pre-generated voice lines tailored for each of the game’s playable heroes—all conveying warmth, positivity, and good-natured sportsmanship. This helps create a welcoming setting for all players, from beginners to seasoned veterans, and despite being a skill-based competitive experience, offers a change of pace from other competitive games. With separate chat functionality supported in Hearthstone across all PC and mobile platforms, it also makes it easier for players to engage socially on their own terms.

In addition, Blizzard recently overhauled the “new-player experience” for the game, putting a bigger buffer between beginners and veterans—making it even easier for anyone to jump in and play. Blizzard is known for its polish and “easy to learn, hard to master” approach to game design, and Hearthstone is a shining example, with an introductory competitive experience that eases players into the fundamentals of the game and amply rewards them along the way.



Fireside Gatherings: Hearthstone Everywhere

To accentuate Hearthstone’s tavern vibe and encourage players to take the fun of the game out into the real world, Blizzard developed the global “Fireside Gathering” program, which enables “Innkeepers” to coordinate gaming get-togethers at their local restaurants, student centres, hobby shops, and actual taverns and pubs. Each month, an average of 2,655 Hearthstone Fireside Gatherings take place in cities around the world, from Boston to Beijing.

At these events, players hang out, enjoy the atmosphere and establishment, and battle each other on their mobile devices in a casual competition. Special prizes are often awarded, and friendships often develop. Another highlight is that Fireside Gatherings often feature pre-release parties for upcoming Hearthstone content expansions, giving attendees a first crack at playing the newest cards being added to the game. This year alone, more than 23,000 Fireside Gatherings have taken place, with many more scheduled in cities everywhere.

A Thank You to the Players

As a way of commemorating Hearthstone’s 100-million-player milestone and thanking players everywhere for bringing the game to life, Blizzard is holding a special in-game event from 8 through 11 November AEDT/NZDT. During the 100 Million Players Celebration event, players who log in to the game will receive a one-time reward of six free packs from the most recent expansion set, The Boomsday Project. In addition, players will be able to complete a series of “Celebrate the Players” event quests to earn up to 500 gold—which can be used to acquire card packs from any set in the game and participate in the Arena mode, a fun alternative form of competition in Hearthstone.

Helmets for Habitat


As you may have recently seen, Bethesda has partnered with Microsoft and HYPERMAKER, the creative agency of HYPEBEAST, to launch #HelmetsforHabitat: a charitable initiative to auction off custom Fallout 76 power armor helmets. 

Dozens of renowned artists from around the world have adorned the T51 power armor helmet in their signature style. Visit the official auction site at Paddle8 to check out and bid on the full selection of customised helmets. 


Three Aussie artists were selected for the initiative, including Lauren Winzer, Mulga & Sam Green Media.

Lauren Winzer 
A Sydney-based and world-renowned tattoo artist, most loved for her bright and feminine works.


Mulga 
Mulga is a magnificently-bearded street artist, illustrator and artrepreneur from Sydney, known for his colourful and often-times magical creations. He used to work in finance before coming to his senses and pursuing his artistic passions.



Sam Green Media
Sam Green is an Australian-based, self-made 2D animator who shares a great passion for drawing cartoon characters and telling short stories.


All proceeds from the final auction sale of each helmet will benefit Habitat for Humanity, a global non-profit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries, to advance the vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. In the spirit of Fallout 76 and global rebuilding, Bethesda is thrilled to continue its support for Habitat for Humanity and their noble mission to transform lives and communities through affordable housing.

Bethesda’s previous initiatives with Habitat for Humanity include donating proceeds from sale of the“Take Me Home Country Roads” cover as heard in the official Fallout 76 announcement trailer, in addition to donating sales from the traveling Mement-o-Matic coin pressing machine. Bethesda is committed to donating a minimum of $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity over the course of these charitable initiatives.  

For a limited time, fans in the New York City area will have a chance to see the helmets up close and personal prior to the auction end date. From October 25 through November 14, the flagship Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue will feature a special exhibit on the third floor that showcases a selection of helmets.

Fallout 76 launches November 14 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.

The Scorchbeast Coming to Sydney!


On 10th November – just four days before the official release of Fallout 76 – join four up-and-coming engineers as they achieve flight upon one of the most feared creatures of the post-apocalyptic world of West Virginia, the Scorchbeast! 

At this year’s Red Bull Flugtag, a team from the University of Newcastle’s School of Engineering will rid the sunny shores of cataclysmic evil as they glide the beast away from the sanctity of civilization, rewriting aviation history in the process.

Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 6-metre high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder. This year, teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft and showmanship with Bethesda’s courageous team, dubbed the ‘Vault Boys’, to consist of:



  • Jack Piercy: 2nd year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Newcastle. 20 years old and originally from Canberra, ACT. Enjoys working on his Datsun 1200 Ute and trips to the hardware store.
  • Jackson Woodbine: 2nd year Mechanical/ Mechatronics student at the University of Newcastle. 19 years old from Kurri Kurri, NSW. Enjoys motor sport and fantasy football.
  • Sam Harrison: 2nd year Mechanical/ Mechatronics student at the University of Newcastle. 19 years old from Newcastle, NSW. Enjoys playing and watching football, and live music. 
  • Cameron Lovell: 2nd year Mechanical/ Mechatronics student at the University of Newcastle. 19 years old from Newcastle, NSW. Enjoys snowboarding and photography.
