EPA says they're 'looking into' whether their recycling game contractor got permission from Nintendo to use a Yoshi's Island DS song (UPDATE)

UPDATE - The music has been removed from the game, and the music file has been deleted from the server.

The other day, we found out that the U.S. government had a Flash game about recycling put together as part of their EPA initiative. That game included a song ripped right from Yoshi's Island DS, and without any credit or comment on usage at all. Believe it or not, news of this situation made it all the way back to the EPA. Here's what an EPA spokesperson had to say on the matter.

"The Recycle City Challenge game was created for EPA by a contractor. We are looking into whether the contractor received permission to use the music, to the extent permission was necessary in this instance."

No need to do any research here, EPA. The answer is 100% no. Whoever was contracted to create this game did not get permission from Nintendo to use that song. Boy, I can't wait to see where this goes from here!

Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2 soundtracks now available on vinyl

Who says it has to be Halloween season to listen to spooky music? Laced Records has put out vinyl versions of both the Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2 soundtracks, and you can grab them for $35 a pop. Check out info on each soundtrack below.

Resident Evil:

"Composed by the Capcom Sound Team, Masami Ueda, Makoto Tomozawa and Akira Kaida, Resident Evil’s brooding score became a benchmark for horror games, giving the original genre-defining masterpiece a persistent and unnerving sense of claustrophobia."

Resident Evil 2:

"The Resident Evil 2 Original Soundtrack conveys fundamental themes of panic and desperation via varying musical styles. Featuring ambient horror, industrial pieces and rousing militaristic anthems you’ll experience classic orchestral compositions alongside ominous piano underscores, taking you back to Raccoon City’s iconic Police Station, Sewer and Underground Laboratory."

Recap of the 2019 Oceania Pokémon TCG International Championships

After kicking off the season with an exciting event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the 2019 International Championships made its way to Melbourne, Australia for the Oceania International Championships. More than 330 players competed to be crowned the third ever Pokémon TCG Masters Division Oceania International Champion, a title which included a $10,000 grand prize and 500 Championship Points—enough to automatically qualify for the 2019 Pokémon World Championships.

With the previous two Oceania International Championships having been won by European players, this year the Oceania community was particularly keen to crown a local champion. However, competition for the title was fierce. The event attracted skilled players from across the globe, including those from the North America, Europe, Latin America and Oceania rating zones who received a Travel Award to Melbourne because of their success at tournaments earlier in the season. With great talent came great strategies and a variety of interesting decks. Here is how the event unfolded.
