EDIT OpenIV does not work in GTAOnline.

Yesterday, RockStar’s parent company, Take-Two, put an end to OpenIV. They said it interfered with online play with their Grand Theft Auto Online tie-in to V. Although OpenIV was made to comply with modding in Single Player, it still allows users to access the modding menu online. This is the reason it was shut down.

It is a sad day as other sites were targeted, too. But there will likely be other ways to mod games, as well as GTAV. Let’s hope they do not take the approach that Bethesda took with payed mods.

Nintendo Spotlight E3 2017

Nintendo may have had the best show at E3 this week. They showed plenty of games in a short time. Every game shown in the Spotlight (similar to Nintendo Direct) was for Switch. Sadly, no social media apps aside from Twitter and Facebook.

Games confirmed are Rocket League, Metroid Prime 4, a new Yoshi game, Kirby, and a new Pokémon too. Yes, Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda DLC were shown.

After of which, they had a Treehouse. Metroid is getting another 3DS game. This one is called Samus Returns. Prime has my attention, though.

Overall, I think Nintendo had the best show.
