1，I know, we seem to be talking about Konami every other day, but it’s really not our fault that the company keeps giving us plenty to talk about. From its flip flop on its future direction to its “pleasant” working environment, Konami has been a popular topic of conversation for those who deal with video games. Now, the company has decided to turn the microphone to gamers and ask which of the old Konami franchises do they want to see resurrected. The “Konami heritage games survey” also offers a chance to win a prize, so it’s worth doing for that if nothing else.
The survey includes such games as Castlevania, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Contra, Bomberman, and plenty more, and asks what your past experiences were with those games, whether you liked them or not, the favorite elements of the games according to you, how interested you would be in playing a new version of the games, and so on. The most interesting question of the survey is about which platforms you would want to see these new versions, with the answers ranging from Cross Platform to Mobile only. I like that Konami is turning to gamers for an opinion regarding bringing old games back to life, though whether this survey will garner any actually-usable results remains to be seen. You can take the survey here.（source：toucharcade.com ）
2，You want the good news first? Capcom is opening up the Street Fighter V beta today, according to a blog post from the publisher. So what’s the bad news? It’s only for 24 hours. Oh, and it’s for Europe only.
After the unexpected implosion of the first Street Fighter V public beta, Capcom is going to run a couple of quick regional stress tests before attempting another full-blown, weeklong session. North American and Asian fans that feel slighted should check their first-world indignation, because we’re going to get our own 24 hour stress tests as well.
Europeans may jump into the Street Fighter V beta today (August 20) starting at 16:00 BST (British Summer Time). Expect it to end around 16:00 BST tomorrow (August 21).（source：venturebeat.com ）
3，N3twork, the social network that pivoted into mobile games a few months ago, has acquired Swedish mobile-game studio Nio Games. That means N3twork will accelerate its return to gaming with the help of the newly acquired company in Stockholm, headed by game veteran Paul Wilkinson.
In December 2013, Neil Young and Bob Stevenson launched N3work, a new social network based on interests rather than friends. It didn’t take off like they expected, so they pivoted back into mobile gaming.
“Back in March, we announced that we were ‘coming home’ and returning to our roots as gamemakers,” Young wrote in a blog post. “At the time, we talked about how we aspire to a redefinition of mobile quality — making games built for the way we use our mobile devices that endeavor to leverage everything we’ve learned on our journey. Today, I’m thrilled to announce that we’re bolstering our efforts to build this new breed of mobile game at N3twork with the acquisition of Stockholm-based Nio Games.”（source：venturebeat.com ）
