This ‘Street Fighter V’ stage was just pulled for ‘unintentional religious references’

TwitterFacebook

One of Street Fighter V's latest DLC stages, Thailand Temple Hideout (from Street Fighter II), was pulled off the marketplace because of its background music yesterday. The music behind the Buddhist-themed stage contained Islamic prayers — not something Capcom intended.

The Islamic prayers in the stage's background music were translated by a Muslim Redditor who goes by Venom44. According to them, the lyrics include references to Allah and the line "By the name of the God, the most merciful."

Capcom did not say that the specific religion was the reason why the stage was pulled, just that the music contained "unintentional religious references." It was likely pulled due to incongruity between the Buddhist imagery and the Islamic music. Read more...

The VR for Change Summit shines a spotlight on impactful virtual reality projects

The social change-driven organization Games for Change is expanding from video games into virtual reality with the VR for Change Summit at its annual Games for Change Festival this year, featuring VR projects that impact the way we learn and shape the way we view the world.

The VR for Change Summit is focusing entirely on virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality projects. The Games for Change Festival is happening July 31 to Aug. 2 at the New School in New York City.

Forza Horizon 3 and Hot Wheels are two things that seem like they'd never ever collide. But they are colliding, and the result looks amazing.

Forza, a relatively realistic driving simulator/racing series, is transplanting its mechanics into the whimsical world of Hot Wheels where the tracks are orange, the loops are vertical, and the jumps are plentiful. The Hot Wheels expansion coming to Forza Horizon 3 is a huge departure from the typically tame series and looks like a lot of fun.

The expansion includes 10 classic Hot Wheels cars and the crazy tracks seen in the video above. It will be available to purchase May 9. Read more...

John Green has a way with wordsObviously. He only wrote The Fault in Our Stars, nbd.

Here, Green describes his discovery of Pokémon. His son Henry is obsessed, so Green shares — in his own, hilarious words — what the fiction and the phenomenon are all about... as he understands it.

Pokémon is weird, especially when it's filtered through the lens of someone who only understands it as a spectator. This is some good internet right here. Read more...
