    Charles Martinet Attains World Record For Most Video Game Voiceovers As One Character

    By GameInformer,

    Over the three decades of Mario's existence, he has gone from completely silent to voiced in periphery media by actors like Bob Hoskins and Captain Lou Albano to voiced in the video games by Charles Martinet. Martinet, a voice actor for things Skyrim, Resonance of Fate, and more, but by far his most famous role is the Italian plumber, and the two just got into the Guinness Book of World Records together.

    Charles Martinet just attained the record for voicing the same character in a video game. Martinet has played Mario one hundred times, which was given to him as of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

    Martinet didn't necessarily beat anyone for this title, the world record was created for him, but it stands to reason that no one else comes close. The only other characters that might come close are Luigi and Wario, who are also voiced by Martinet, so his legacy is probably safe.

    The Mario voice actor also keeps a fairly active Instagram, as seen above, where he approaches people and talks to them in the Mario voice. It is not known whether Martinet will be playing Mario in the upcoming animated movie. For now, though, he can add World Record Holder to his business cards.

    Replay – Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

    By GameInformer,

    Watch the Game Informer crew find new ways to take down targets in this look back at one of Agent 47's earliest assignments. Game Informer gave Hitman 2: Silent Assassin an 8.5 when it released in 2002, saying it is a "thinking person's shooter." In this episode of Replay we prove this quote wrong, and show that you don't need to think to succeed. You just need to fire bullets in the general direction of enemies. While we fail miserably at stealth, we do end up making good progress into the game, and even show off one of the game's more creative levels.

    We spend the entire episode playing Hitman 2, and wanted to see more of it before we had to say goodbye. Let us know what you think of Hitman 2 (both the old version and the new one) in the comments section below. We'll see you again in seven days!

    Weekend Warrior – Out With A Bang

    By GameInformer,

    It’s all about celebration this weekend for the Game Informer editors. We’re celebrating birthdays, upcoming holidays, endings (we’re finally wrapping up Red Dead Redemption II and our Top 10 lists), and starting something new. Many of us are getting closer to unlocking all the characters in Super Smash, while others are working on their backlogs before a new year of amazing games release.

    Don’t just read about our plans. Join in the conversation and let us know if you’re doing something fun in the comments below!

    Javy Gwaltney – I’ve snuck away earlier from the offices than my compatriots in order to spend time with family during my brother’s college graduation (congratulations Sloan!). I’m going to be getting caught up on the Western films (McCabe And Mrs. Miller) and books (The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford) I’ve taken on to fill that Red Dead Redemption II hole in my soul. There will probably be a lot of Super Smashing and Diabloing as I make my way through the holidays. Hope you all have a great holiday and see you in the new year, friends.

    Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I’m very excited to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I like Spider-Man, but I love innovative animation and since the very first trailer I have been excited to see it. The fact that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are involved at writing and producing capacities make it all the more exciting. I will forever be sad that their Han Solo movie doesn’t exist. Otherwise it will be assorted Christmas shopping excursions, Smash Bros. character unlocking, and god I hope I can make it to the end of Red Dead’s main story. I am loving it, but it is taking me forever.

    Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’m continuing my quest to fully unlock the huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. I’m coming up on 60 characters, so I bet I’ll be pretty close by the time Monday rolls around. I’d also love to finally put a bow on the Red Dead Redemption II post-game, and then start Just Cause 4. I’ll also get in a few rounds of Overwatch a day and continue doing my dailies in Pokémon Go and Marvel Strike Force.

    Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I’ll be doing a little Christmas shopping and visiting family, but there’s no way I can resist the allure of playing even more Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I overdid it last weekend and my fingers are still sore from slamming that shoulder button on the GameCube. Other than that… let’s see… I’m sure I’ll just play more Red Dead and Tetris Effect or something. Oh wait, I want to check out Gris on Steam! Have a good weekend!

    Jeff Cork – I wrapped up Red Dead Redemption II last week, so now I’m going back – way back – to Greece. I kind of fell off Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, even though I was having a great time with it. That ends this weekend! I’m going to dive back into it and see if it makes my top 10 games of 2018 list. And, of course, I’ll be playing mystery heroes in Overwatch, because now there’s snow on some of the levels and I imagine it’s like playing a whole new game. Or something like that.

    Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – It’s my birthday! Actually, yesterday was my birthday, but apparently adults can’t just drop everything because it’s their birthday, so I’ll be doing all the celebratory stuff during this weekend. I caught Into the Spider-Verse, which wasn’t the weekend but I am mentioning it because you should definitely see it if you have any affection for Spider-Man. Aside from that, this weekend I’m going to be playing more Ashen, make more progress in World of Light, and I might pick up Supergiant’s new game Hades, too.

    Suriel Vasquez (@SurielVazquez) – Got a weekend retreat with the Van der Linde gang. Snake and Duck Hunt are along for the ride.

    Andrew Reiner (@Andrew_Reiner) – I’m diving into Below and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. Come Monday morning, my Top 10 list for 2018 should be locked in stone. The year was filled with awesome games. Narrowing the list to just 10 was challenge, to say the least.

    Jill Grodt (@Finruin) – I’ll be packing up and moseying along. I’ll finally be looking into my backlog and I can’t wait to dive into all the games I’ve picked up but haven’t finished this year. Listing them all would probably take a whole page, but the biggest time commitments are probably Red Dead Redemption II, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It’s been great, and I hope everyone has fantastic weekend!

    Stardew Valley Developer Puts New Project On Hold To Double-Down On Farming Game

    By GameInformer,

    After a recent announcement that Eric Barone has retained the publishing rights to his game Stardew Valley, there were still a lot of open questions about the future of the game and what Barone's one-man studio ConcernedApe will be doing next. In a new blog post, Barone revealed those plans.

    "As many of you know, I’ve been working on a new game for a while. I haven’t revealed anything about it, except that it takes place in the same universe as Stardew Valley," Barone wrote. "I’ve been deliberately secretive about it because I want to be able to work on it without any pressure for the time being. I also want to make sure the concept is fully realized before revealing anything, because once it’s out there, I’m going to have to fully commit to it. I’m a pretty cautious person when it comes to this sort of thing."

    ConcernedApe plans to bolster their development resources for the game, but because that is a future plan and requires leaving Stardew Valley behind, Barone does not want to move on to it quite yet. Since he just got the rights to self-publish Stardew Valley, that is going to remain his main priority.

    "In short," Barone says, "what I’m saying is that I am going to keep making new content for Stardew Valley. In fact, I’ve recently put my other game on the back-burner and have been in the process of creating a new free content update."

    In the post, Barone explains that he wants to work on both projects at once, but it's currently unfeasible to do so. In the meantime, he plans to work on the free update he alluded to, as well as the fixes to the current versions to make sure everything is up to par.

    The multiplayer update for Stardew Valley just hit Switch and is expected to land on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year. It has been available on PC for a few months.

    idruids.gif Druid (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)
    • Damage of all abilities increased by 7%.

    images.gif Mage (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)
    • Damage of all spells increased by 3%.

    Both of these adjustments will apply to PvP activities as well.

    Developer Q&A Feedback

    That Q&A was hard to watch

    I guess you’d be surprised just how much we do read and do listen but that doesn’t mean we do knee-jerk reactions to whatever someone says. We do miss things and do make mistakes, we are still human (unfortunately?), but we do try to consider the implications that changes will have for all player types. We, the World of Warcraft community, are a mass of individuals and not a hive mind. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    If you have additional questions or topics to discuss feel free to share those. If there were specific questions you felt weren’t important, please specify those. Keep in mind that what you are wanting answered and what is important to you can easily be different to others… many others. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

While our extended Blizzard family working on World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, and our unannounced projects will be getting an influx of much-needed, extremely talented Heroes devs to help them achieve their goals, it also means that we’ll need to change the cadence of support for Heroes going forward.

    So, I’m sad. I’m sad because I love this team and this game that we’ve built together, with all of you, and this past year has been such a great one for Heroes of the Storm. The HGC had its best year yet and I was so looking forward to the 2019 season. On the game side, we’ve had a steady stream of some of the most sought-after heroes, amazing themed events, and impactful reworks. We also made meaningful progress on improving core systems and features across the game. We truly hit our stride in 2018, so I’m disappointed that some of the exciting plans we had for 2019 will have to change.

    But all is not lost. The team that remains dedicated to Heroes of the Storm is a veritable Who’s Who of developers who have been driving every facet of the game from the very beginning—from people you know and have seen speak publicly about the game for years, to those who have poured their hearts into it from behind the scenes. In short, we’re continuing to develop the game with an incredible team that has the experience and passion required to support Heroes of the Storm well into the future.

    The Heroes of the Storm team and I also have a unique opportunity to rethink things and reprioritize. Because now more than ever, our charge is to focus on taking care of you, our players, and to channel all our energy into keeping the game dynamic and fun. This means we’re still committed to regular hero reworks, themed events, and even new heroes. We’re setting our sights on the new goals and timelines for what we want to do with the game from here on out and we’re eager to share those plans as soon as they’re finalized.

    So, I’m also excited. I’m excited for my teammates to bring their hard-won experience from making this game to the other teams at Blizzard to help their games be even better. And I’m especially excited for Heroes of the Storm to continue evolving with a renewed focus and purity of purpose.

    Thank you for joining us on the journey so far, and please bear with us through these changes. Your feedback is as critical as ever, and continues to guide our priorities and decisions while helping us be better along the way.

    Thank you,
