As the sands of time continue to drop in this hourglass called life, it's easy to forget things -- even major elements of our childhood. For instance, I completely forgot Rare was responsible for the amazing Battletoads ...

Wii production is coming to a halt photo
Wii production is coming to a halt
by Tony Ponce

The Wii may have secured a solid lead ahead of the Xbox 360 and PS3 with a tidy 100 million units under its belt, but let's face facts: its time in the sun is over. With the 3DS dominating in Japan and the US and the Wii U needing to be given space to breathe and grow, Nintendo has made the decision to end the Wii's production run.

Over on the top right corner of the Japanese Wii homepage is a block of text that reads "Kinjutsu seisan shuuryou yotei," which loosely translates to "Production scheduled to end soon." Now is the time to stockpile on all the discounted Wii games that you may have missed. And of course, you can also make use of the Wii U's backwards compatibility (now with off-TV play for Wii Mode).

It breaks my heart to see the kind of casual disregard the Wii was given, written off like it had nothing of value or was only supported by "casuals" who bought a single game and that was it. But I got a new Sin & Punishment and Punch-Out!! I became a fan of Suda51 through No More Heroes. I found sparkling diamonds in games like Muramasa and the Trauma series. And there are still gems from all three regions that I need to try out: Fragile Dreams, Captain Rainbow, Day of Disaster, Klonoa, Zangeki no Reginleiv, Taiko no Tatsujin, and more.

I think the console deserves to be remembered fondly. If you gave up on the Wii at any point, I urge you to use this opportunity to give it one last chance and look back on all you missed.

Arkham Origins on Wii U lacks multiplayer, naturally

Wii U is looking pretty down in the dumps. Maybe some quality software in the near future will cheer it right back up. Perhaps a little Batman: Arkham Origins -- I hear it's got multiplayer now. Well, it does on every platfor...

Oculus Rift co-founder struck and killed by speeding car photo
Oculus Rift co-founder struck and killed by speeding car
by Jonathan Holmes

Oculus Rift co-founder Andrew Scott Reisse, age 33, was killed by a speeding car in Santa Ana, California. The car was allegedly driven by Victor Sanchez, age 21, who along with two other unnamed suspects, were fleeing from police in a high speed chase at the time of the accident. The three were reportedly involved in some form of "criminal activity" prior to the chase, which led to police involvement and the "officer involved shooting" of Gerardo Diego Ayala, age 26, who was reportedly involved in the alleged criminal activity along with Sanchez and the other two suspects. Ayala was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. 

The shooting incident led to Sanchez and the two unnamed suspect fleeing the scene in a white Dodge Charger, with police in pursuit. Sanchez reportedly collided two other cars prior to striking Riesse, and eventually crashing the Charger. All three suspects were apprehended. 

Reisse was crossing the street at the time of the accident. He had moved to Santa Ana about a year ago, working in Irvine California on the Oculus Rift project. A grief counselor was reported made available to Reisse's coworkers at Oculus, many of whom had known him for many years, through college and work at other game development studios.

Our deepest condolences to the friends, co-workers and family of all those involved in these tragic events. The official statement from Oculus follows below.

GameStop to stop accepting PS2 trade-ins on June 1 photo
GameStop to stop accepting PS2 trade-ins on June 1
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

GameStop will stop taking in PlayStation 2 systems, games, and accessories starting on June 1, 2013. A poster on Reddit snapped the above picture, and I've since confirmed with a number of stores and employees at different GameStop locations that they will indeed stop taking in anything PlayStation 2 related starting next month. 

The PlayStation 2 was the final last-generation system that GameStop stores were taking in, as the chain had stopped accepting GameCube systems early last year, and Xbox consoles a few years prior.

The PlayStation 2 has sold 150 million units worldwide since it was released over 12 years ago, with over 10,000 games created for the console. Sony themselves stopped PlayStation 2 system production worldwide earlier this year.

Fan group Zelda Reorchestrated is closing down photo
Fan group Zelda Reorchestrated is closing down
by Tony Ponce

Zelda Reorchestrated first gained prominence just over three years ago with the release of an Ocarina of Time symphonic arrangement. Since then, the site has expanded with new music from various Zelda games. The entire movement even inspired other orchestral game projects, such as last year's Kanto Symphony. The ZREO team's latest work, Twilight Symphony, was to be the biggest, most polished undertaking yet. They were also working directly with Nintendo to hammer out details for a retail release via Joypad Records and iTunes and everything.

But all wasn't well. Originally scheduled for release last fall, Twilight Symphony kept missing its launch dates. Nintendo and ZREO seemingly couldn't reach an agreement, and eventually everything just... stopped. With a heavy heart, the team decided to voluntarily close the door on ZREO and move on to bigger and better things. The site will remain open until June 12, 2013, so if you want to grab the available music before it's gone, you better do so quickly.

Unfortunately, this also means that Twilight Symphony will never see a proper release. Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers were sent the promised three-disc physical album, but the digital version shall forever remain in limbo. Not that you still can't obtain it if you know where to look. The team suggests searching for torrents, which they have thus far ignored for obvious reasons.

This is poopy. I own one of the few physical albums -- I was just listening to it at the gym this afternoon! It doesn't make any sense how other licensed fan albums like Kanto Symphony and the recent Super Metroid Symphony cleared with seemingly no issue but this one was saddled with all the bad luck. I simply hope for the best in whatever the individual team members plan to do in the future. Thanks for all the good music, guys!
