Remember the quirky little RPG Fantasy Life that came out for 3DS last year? If you really enjoyed it, you can put your hands together for a sequel coming this year! But... maybe not on the platform you want.

I liked Fantasy Life, and don't see much issue having it drift to mobile. It was a very pick-up-and-play RPG to me, and being able to pop in and out of it on my phone sounds splendid.

It's the year of delays folks, it and it's hitting all platforms it seems. Remedy Entertainment, developers of the Alan Wake franchise, have just announced the delay of Xbox exclusive Quantum Break to, "Sometime next year."

Also confirmed is the delay of the Quantum Break TV show counterpart, which is stil in development according to Remedy.

Phil Spencer had stated earlier this year that, "Microsoft's 2015 lineup was so stuffed with great games that the company might need to move something," so I don't think it's that big of a surprise the game is coming next year. And again, more time, more polish, and we avoid the horrible buggy mess that was last year's holiday season.

Remember when we introduced the exclusive Tempiibo yesterday? Did it sound a little too good to be true? If it did, you were right in trusting your intuitions, because Tempiibo is not a real thing... yet.

The GBAtemp Accessory Printing Bounty - Runs to July 1st, 2015 0:00 GMT

Remember when the Homebrew Bounty was a thing? Remember the wild popularity and the cool applications our very own community members designed and developed? Now it is your turn to create something great! We are proud and extremely excited to announce the GBAtemp Accessory Printing Bounty!
In this bounty, we on the Staff are offering you guys $150 to write a tutorial on successfully printing a custom Amiibo or other game accessory! This tutorial will be graded according to the following three criterion by our Staff:

  • Disassembly of accessories
  • Scanning of pieces - can be at home or whatever will work for you!
  • Printing of high-quality parts
AMENDED CRITERIA, as of April 14
  • Design of an accessory figurine of a recognizable character or style
  • Printing of said figurine
  • Tutorials that include deconstruction and scanning will be scored higher than those which do not
There are already communities that design custom Amiibo figurines, and examples of things to note are below in the following images:
WARNING! Spoilers inside!

Amiibo is a subject that is close to some people's hearts. They find joy in being able to collect these little figurines, even as they go up to exorbitant price levels. So, why not participate and have a small recollection of a piece of GBAtemp history, by earning a new collector's item that is still extremely worthy of that three inches of your shelf space, and earn your chance to get an exclusive GBAtemp Amiibo, which we have christened as Tempiibo! Clever, right?!

Attached below, we have a specs sheet from our friends at the printing factory! Unfortunately, our folks at the designing factory are having a small issue with a design cue at present, so we can only present a mockup image at this time! They told us though that the problem should be ironed out, very soon!

With all the mumbo jumbo out of the way, what does that mean, and more importantly, when are you guys going to be allowed to order one? Unfortunately, the answer to that question is to be determined - we're quite hard at work negotiating with distributors and a retail chain or two to see if we can sell the product in stores; we're going to make this available to a decently sized audience if possible, but at the same time not let it become a bit of a fiasco like some of the other Amiibo that are flying off of shelves. The bottom line is we still want this to be an enjoyable community thing, too! We'll provide more information as time comes, but the announcement is too good to keep back anymore! At this point, we would like to ask you guys to stay tuned, and get hyped, because a new collectable is on its way, and being members you guys will have early access to this!
