GIF Breath of the Wild players have developed a cheat code mod that lets you spawn almost any object, item, character, or boss into your game. The raw power this affords Link is incredible. Advertisement Here’s MrBean35000vr, testing out a sliver of things you can do with the “Accio Master Code” on the Wii U version of the game: Want to spawn a million King of Hyrules to fight against a Guardian? You can do that. Want to make it rain bananas? Go nuts. At one point, MrBean ties Link to a tornado of metal boxes, which perpetually spawn and hit everything that stands in their way. During another segment, MrBean tries to see how many pigeons he can spawn, only to find that BOTW will trigger a Blood Moon to wipe the game once it starts struggling with too many rendered objects.

It should come as no surprise that the Nintendo Classic Mini has already been hacked. The system comes with 30 games pre-installed but determined hackers have managed to figure out a way to get more games onto the system. It appears that Nintendo knew that it would only be a matter of time before this happened, and hid a secret message for any would-be hackers inside of their diminutive console. This message was left by a programmer who goes by the handle of “The Hanafuda Captain.” The Hanafuda name is an homage to the hanafuda cards that Nintendo used to sell before becoming a video game company. Here is what the message says: “This is the Hanafuda Captain speaking. Launching emulation in 3…2…1. Many efforts, tears and countless hours have been put into this jewel. So, please keep this place tidied up and don’t break everything! Cheers, the Hanafuda Captain.” The code was posted on Twitter by user bakueikozo: 大変！ファミコンミニの内蔵エミュレータの中身をのぞいていたらメッセージを発見したよ … ごめんキャプテン！！ズタボロに壊し始めちゃったｗｗｗｗｗｗ #ニンテンドークラシックミニ #開発者からのメッセージ #削るとなぜか動かない系とはちょっと違う pic.twitter.com/C2dvIQlEuU — ひろみつ(85.1kg) (@bakueikozo) January 6, 2017 Getting more games onto the NES Classic involves uploading one’s console memory to their PC, adding in extra ROM READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!
Because Hackers Love to Take Responsibility, Especially with Multiplayer We are celebrating and we are down. Despite the fact that Xbox Live and PSN report full functionality, players are unable to play online. A myriad of forums and social media sites have users reporting the same issue; online gaming networks remain inaccessible. Since this madness began, Lizard Squad, the notorious hackers, have taken responsibility. They claimed as much on Twitter: We warned you. Don’t be surprised. PSN and Xbox Live will be down for the entire night. #LizardSquad — Lizard Squad (@LizardInvasion) January 1, 2017 And these attacks are being reported across North America, Europe, and Australasia. Everywhere, people are relaying their disappointment for being locked out of multiplayer. Alas, that’s how many of us are going to spend the beginning of this year. But these attacks to PSN and Xbox Live are certainly nothing new. Call of Duty players, especially, are experiencing server outages. Yet as of the time of this article’s publication, players are starting to see functionality return. Time will tell if Sony or Microsoft shall take appropriate steps towards combating these issues.
