If you're unfamiliar with Taiwan No. 1, here's the quick and dirty version: back in July of 2015, YouTuber ANGRYPUG was streaming H1Z1 and decided to troll a Chinese player by yelling "Taiwan number one" at him. The guy didn't take it well, and a meme was born. Watch the interaction for yourself below (action starts at 2:00, beware of naughty language):



Given the tumultuous relationship between China and Taiwan, Pug's video has become incredibly popular in Taiwan, elevating him to celebrity status there. He recently attended the Taipei Game Show, where people were lining up to take a picture with him and get his autograph.

News outlets are treating rumors of Mother 3 in the West like the game is all but confirmed, but I'm keeping my salt handy until we actually hear from Nintendo. Frequent Nintendo rumor pot-stirrer Emily Rogers made a big claim on her Twitter that Mother 3 would finally be released in the States in 2016. Shortly thereafter, Liam Robertson of Unseen64 chimed in to say he had heard rumors of the same thing. Neither of them have track records strong enough to get too excited about, but reliable European news outlet Eurogamer has also entered the fray confirming they had heard similar claims of the game coming to Wii U Virtual Console in the West in celebration of Mother 3's 10th anniversary.

Take from that what you will, but I'll be here waiting for an announcement from Nintendo before I let myself get hyped.

It's a sad day for crowdfunded games; Ant Simulator has been canceled for a particularly terrible reason. 

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014, development of Eric Tereshinski's Ant Simulator game was underway under a company registered among his friends called ETeeski LLC. This weekend, Tereshinski resigned from his own company and canceled the game. Why? Because his "friends"/business partners had wasted the company's money on booze for "business meetings" and other less than professional expenses.

Tereshinski is not seeking legal action against his former friends because apparently,

...these guys covered their asses in the contract. They'll say the drinks were for business meetings, and they have the paperwork/minutes to prove they had meetings (even though I know they were bulls**t meetings). They went over the contract line by line with me and I reviewed the whole thing twice. I just didn't realize they had protected themselves, screwed me (like the fact that they listed themselves as consultants, so they aren't legally obligated to work on anything, but still have the rights to spend money ect.), and I had no idea what their plan was until it was too late.


A legal battle with them would likely be extremely expensive with a totally uncertain outcome for Tereshinski, so for the time being he's decided it isn't worth it, and is canceling the game and providing refunds to folks who preordered.
