Details on Resident Evil 2’s Ghost Survivor DLC

Published

on

A brand new DLC, The Ghost Survivors, officially arrives this week and ahead of that release comes a bunch of details to give gamers a glimpse into what is in store.

According to Capcom:

  • No Time to Mourn
    Stars Robert Kendo, owner of the famous Gun Shop Kendo. In The Ghost Survivors, he’s given a second chance when an old friend with a helicopter radios in to pick him up. Packing up what weapons he can, Kendo sets out into the streets to fins a way out of the infected city. On his way, a new type of poisonous zombie stands between him and freedom.
  • Runaway
    Way before the events of Resident Evil 2 took place, the fate of the mayor’s daughter, Katherine, was already sealed. In this scenario, her story takes her down a very different path. Seeking to escape Raccoon City with a certain someone, Katherine Warren must navigate the streets while avoiding a strangely mutated type of zombie that can only be stopped with particularly powerful ammunition. Play carefully, and you might survive.
  • Forgotten Soldier
    Thought to have been wiped out with his squad, this forgotten U.S.S. agent, appropriately named Ghost, is attempting to escape a laboratory underneath the city. He will have to deal with hordes of monsters covered in armor. Capcom said this is a particularly “challenging scenario.” Best of luck with it.

The new DLC arrives on February 15th as a free update.

FTC Cracking Down on Streamers

Published

on

The Federal Trade Commission is looking into streamers who may have violated their rules and regulations and could be facing action for non-compliance, according to Gamactica.

The FTC is specifically looking at streamers who have not handled advertisements and sponsorships properly, and according to the report, a crackdown could be on the horizon.

“There are a lot of legal issues with celebrity streamers” attorney Stephen McArthur said. “These streamers NEED to make advertisement disclosures via the FTC guidelines. They should always use #ad hashtags. But they often fail. For example, Nina was paid $1 million to stream Apex for one evening and never disclosed it pursuant to the FTC endorsement guidelines. The FTC has their eyes on streamers are will start cracking down harshly soon.”

With the amount of cash flowing in the rising streaming industry, the FTC is now taking notice and, soon, necessary action.

“Video game streamers are absolutely on the FTC’s radar right now. If a streamer is paid to play, then they must disclose that with an #ad or #sponsored hashtag in a conspicuous place during the stream. Sponsorships is interpreted broadly by the FTC. If you received a free Steam key to play a game for free, then that required the #ad hashtag.”

Let’s face it, there is a boatload of money up for grabs in the industry and mainstream streamer such as Ninja are raking in millions for their streaming efforts.

Now, the onus is on streamers to get their act together to protect their brand and comply with FTC rules and regulations.

“Compliance is easy. Get in the habit of using the “#ad” hashtag on photographs, streams. Tweets, etc. This is effective to avoid FTC liability, McArthur advises.

“If you’re ever not sure whether or not you should disclose something, the streamer should ask herself “Would the viewer want to know this?” If the answer is “yes”, then they should disclose it pursuant to FTC rules.”
