<p>Brianna Wu - head of development at Revolution 60 studio Giant Spacekat - was forced to leave her home over the weekend after receiving death and rape threats on Twitter.</p><p>Her personal information - such as her and her husband's home address - were also posted online. You can read the threats here, but be warned they're super NSFW.</p><p>Wu is an outspoken critic of 'GamerGate' - a movement that is ostensibly about cleaning up standards in games journalism, but has shown itself to be a force of hate and abuse directed towards women in games.</p><p>The clique has previously targeted Depression Quest developer Zoe Quinn, and Feminist Frequency (and Tropes against Women in Video Games) creator Anita Sarkeesian. Both left their homes and contacted the authorities after receiving threats online.</p><p>While some in the GG community have accused Wu of making the event up, Kotaku has confirmed that the Arlington, Massachusetts police department took a report on the incident.</p><p>"The matter is now under investigation by our Criminal Investigation Bureau," said Captain Richard Flynn.</p><p>This hasn't fazed Wu who says "I AM NOT GOING ANYWHERE. I am going to keep making games. And I will keep speaking up for women in game development." But adds: "My biggest fear right now is that I'm going to be known for all this bullshit and not for developing awesome games."</p><p>This systematic abuse and harassment of women in games - not to mention hacking, doxxing, and threatening - is utterly unacceptable.</p><p>Video games are (and always have been) an open and inclusive space for all players, makers, writers, and critics. Everyone should feel safe to play and to contribute to the conversation and - yes - even criticise or call out its more toxic elements.</p><p>Ethics in games journalism absolutely deserve greater scrutiny. But until the conversation is decoupled from this heinous misogynist crap, I say let's slam that GamerGate shut.</p>Pocket Gamer welcomes comments on this issue, but we will not accept any attacks, abuse, or threats. You may also be laughed at for your backwards views."I never heard you make such a bitter partisan speech before, Captain Jim. I didn't think you had so much political venom in you," laughed Anne, who was not much excited over the tidings. Little Jem had said "Wow-ga" that morning. What were principalities and powers, the rise and fall of dynasties, the overthrow of Grit or Tory, compared with that miraculous occurrence?Updated on January 15th, at 10:35: Gunslugs 2 is now available worldwide on iPhone and iPad, and it's also available on Android where it costs £1.96 / $2.99.<p>We'll have a review soon.</p><p>Original story follows…</p>
<p>It's been in the making for a little while, but today Niantic revealed details of the Trainer Battles coming to Pokemon GO very soon.</p><p>Pokemon GO's upcoming Trainer Battles are a new social feature where you'll be able to take on other Trainers in fast-paced fights. In-game you'll create a custom Battle Party made up of three Pokemon and you'll get to unlock a new Charge Attack and Protect Shield mechanic for a fresher strategy element.</p><p>"The Trainer Battles feature infuses the spirit of Pokemon GO with the classic concept of battling Pokemon, creating an exciting competitive angle for Pokemon GO Battles that also feels familiar to Pokemon GO and main series fans alike," says Product Manager for Pokemon GO at Niantic, Matt Slemon.</p><p>According to the official blog post, Trainer Battles will kick off this month. If you're worried about getting paired up with someone way more powerful than you, Trainers need to compete in the same Trainer Battle League and will both receive handsome rewards for their efforts regardless of the victor.</p><p>Our own Ric Cowley got his hands on Trainer Battles already and wrote up a dandy ol' feature on his experiences, so be sure to give that a read for more information.</p><p>Badlanders is an upcoming competitive survival looter shooter from NetEase. It will be heading for both iOS and Android, with pre-registration available now over on the game's official website. This is open for all regions except for Belgium, Taiwan, Vietnam and Mainland China</p><p>25 players – or the titular Badlanders – will enter the battlefield with their own objectives to complete. They'll still need to contend with other players though and can choose to either engage with them on sight or loot weapons and gear that can be found in the chests scattered across the map before taking them on. </p><p>If you do get killed then you'll lose all of the loot you've gathered so likewise, if you manage to escape you'll be able to keep everything you've collected. These pieces of gear and weapons can then be modified in a plethora of different ways to suit the individual's needs.</p>Swordshot Review - "Very, very challenging one-button game"<p>If players gather several pieces of loot they have no use for, it can be traded or resold for the marked price.

Shook off my sober guards and civil fears;
A MULETEER set forth on a journey, driving before him an Ass and a Mule, both well laden. The Ass, as long as he traveled along the plain, carried his load with ease, but when he began to ascend the steep path of the mountain, felt his load to be more than he could bear. He entreated his companion to relieve him of a small portion, that he might carry home the rest; but the Mule paid no attention to the request. The Ass shortly afterwards fell down dead under his burden. Not knowing what else to do in so wild a region, the Muleteer placed upon the Mule the load carried by the Ass in addition to his own, and at the top of all placed the hide of the Ass, after he had skinned him. The Mule, groaning beneath his heavy burden, said to himself: "I am treated according to my deserts. If I had only been willing to assist the Ass a little in his need, I should not now be bearing, together with his burden, himself as well."

'"Now all these hearts that do on mine depend,A RICH NOBLEMAN once opened the theaters without charge to the people, and gave a public notice that he would handsomely reward any person who invented a new amusement for the occasion. Various public performers contended for the prize. Among them came a Buffoon well known among the populace for his jokes, and said that he had a kind of entertainment which had never been brought out on any stage before. This report being spread about made a great stir, and the theater was crowded in every part. The Buffoon appeared alone upon the platform, without any apparatus or confederates, and the very sense of expectation caused an intense silence. He suddenly bent his head towards his bosom and imitated the squeaking of a little pig so admirably with his voice that the audience declared he had a porker under his cloak, and demanded that it should be shaken out. When that was done and nothing was found, they cheered the actor, and loaded him with the loudest applause. A Countryman in the crowd, observing all that has passed, said, "So help me, Hercules, he shall not beat me at that trick!" and at once proclaimed that he would do the same thing on the next day, though in a much more natural way. On the morrow a still larger crowd assembled in the theater, but now partiality for their favorite actor very generally prevailed, and the audience came rather to ridicule the Countryman than to see the spectacle. Both of the performers appeared on the stage. The Buffoon grunted and squeaked away first, and obtained, as on the preceding day, the applause and cheers of the spectators. Next the Countryman commenced, and pretending that he concealed a little pig beneath his clothes (which in truth he did, but not suspected by the audience ) contrived to take hold of and to pull his ear causing the pig to squeak. The Crowd, however, cried out with one consent that the Buffoon had given a far more exact imitation, and clamored for the Countryman to be kicked out of the theater. On this the rustic produced the little pig from his cloak and showed by the most positive proof the greatness of their mistake. "Look here," he said, "this shows what sort of judges you are."<p>Classic arcade shoot’em up Ikaruga is headed to Switch later this month, courtesy of publisher Nicalis.
