Sound team from Sonic's 25th Anniversary explains live stream issues during broadcast

If any of you watched the Sonic Anniversary stream on Friday night, you'll remember a very loud buzzing sound throughout the stream. Turns out there were a bunch of issues right before launch of the stream that plauged it for the rest of the night. Hunter Bridges, whose team was in charge of producing the stream, wrote about it on Twitter. NintendoLife has compiled his timeline which you can see here.

Overall, it seems like a series of unfortunate issues that just didn't work out for his team that night. I guess it happens when you're working on shows that are going live!

Pokemon GO - Japanese players told not to enter disaster zone in Fukushima

This comes from The Guardian:

Japan is asking for the Fukushima nuclear exclusion zone to be classified as a no-go area for Pokémon after the discovery of at least one of the game’s characters on a power station’s site.

Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (Tepco) has requested that Pokémon Go developer Niantic and the Pokémon Company prevent Pokémon appearing in and around areas affected by the nuclear reactor meltdown in Fukushima to help prevent encouraging players to enter dangerous areas.

Tepco said it has tested the Fukushima Daiichi plant, which was partially destroyed by the March 2011 disaster, the nearby Fukushima Daini plant and the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in Niigata Prefecture and found Pokémon on-site.

Japan’s nuclear regulator sent out a warning to national energy providers telling them to tighten security after the incursion of three teenagers into a nuclear power plant in Ohio in the US. Tepco has banned employees from playing Pokémon Go on site.
