  • 11/28/17--09:24: Animal Crossing Pocket Camp
  • About

    Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a social simulation mobile video game published by Nintendo as part of the Animal Crossing series of games. In the game, users interact with other players by building living spaces and buying and selling goods.

    History

    In April 2016, Nintendo[1] announced via a press release that they would be releasing a mobile version of their Animal Crossing series. Announced with a mobile Fire Emblem, the company said, “Nintendo will design Animal Crossing mobile] so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment. Both of these are pure game applications.”

    The game was released on October 25th, 2017 in Australia and November 21st in the United States and more than 40 other countries.[3]

    Following the release of the game, on November 27th, 2017, Sensor Tower[2] reported that the game had been downloaded more than 15 million times, making it the second largest download in Nintendo history, behind Super Mario Run



    Reception

    Animal Crossing Pocket Camp received generally positive reviews. The review aggregator Metacritic[4] scored the game a 76% postive based on 19 reviews. IGN gave the game an 8 out of 10. In their review, they wrote:

    “Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp delivers on the brief, daily getaway I hoped it would, while also making some welcome changes to the franchise’s formula. Limitations like an always-online connection and frequent loads can make the on-the-go experience occasionally frustrating, but I continually found reward -- both literally in-game and metaphorically -- in working toward building a better campsite. And just making sure my animal friends really, really like me. With the potential to continue introducing new items, seasonal events, and other camp upgrades, I expect to be taking this vacation for weeks, if not months to come.”

    Overview

    Trump’s Britain First Retweets refer to three retweets made by Donald Trump of tweets showing videos of Muslims allegedly participating in violent acts made by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First, a far-right British activist group. The retweets were condemned by both the left and right as well as British politicians, and some wondered if the retweets would actively lead to violence against Muslims in America.

    Background

    On November 29th, 2017, Donald Trump retweeted three videos tweeted by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First.[1] The videos were captioned “VIDEO: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”[2]VIDEO: Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!”[3] and “VIDEO: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”[4]



    Developments

    Fransen celebrated the retweets in a tweet[5] that read:

    THEPRESIDENT OF THEUNITEDSTATES, DONALDTRUMP, HASRETWEETEDTHREE OF DEPUTYLEADERJAYDA FRANSEN’S TWITTERVIDEOS! DONALDTRUMPHIMSELFHASRETWEETEDTHESEVIDEOSANDHASAROUND 44 MILLIONFOLLOWERS! GODBLESSYOUTRUMP! GODBLESSAMERICA! OCS” (_EN: “OCS” stands for “Onward Christian Soldiers”)

    English politicians swiftly denounced the retweets.[6]Jeremy Corbyn stated, “I hope our Government will condemn far-right retweets by Donald Trump. They are abhorrent, dangerous and a threat to our society.” Others noted that Fransen had been arrested for hate speech in Northern Ireland days prior.[7]

    Meanwhile, immediately after the retweets were posted, they received intense backlash from Twitter and media sources. Twitter user @AGlasgowGirl[8] stated the actions of “the leader of the free world” using his power to “demonise (Muslims) to his rabid audience” felt “eerily familiar” (shown below, left). Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars, a vocal Trump supporter on Twitter, admitted that the retweets were “not great optics.”[9]



    Meanwhile, conservative Dutch website Dumpert,[10] which initially shared the video of what is alleged to be a Muslim beating up a Dutch boy on crutches, had since removed the video at the request of the police. GeenStijl, the right-leaning blog which owns Dumpert, claimed the perpetrator was not a Muslim nor a migrant, but simply a “Dutch guy.”[11] Paste Magazine[12] wrote that it was likely that Trump’s retweets would open the door to more anti-Muslim violence in America.

    Overview

    Marvel Editor-In-Chief Japanese Pseudonym Controversy refers to the discussion around the news that Marvel’s recently-hired editor-in-chief, C.B. Celuski, had written for a year under the Japanese pseudonym Akira Yoshida in an effort to move from editing to writing at Marvel.

    Background

    Rumors of Yoshida being a pen name had swirled in the comic world since as early as 2005, when his work began appearing with Marvel, as it seemed strange that an artist nobody had heard of had been given high-profile comics,[3] including twelve issues of Thor: Son of Asgard and many X-Men series.[2] Celuski even gave interviews as Yoshida around that time.[6] Bleeding Cool writer Rich Johnston[1] writes that he had been tracking the story since 2006, and had asked Celuski then if rumors that he was writing as Yoshida were true. Celuski denied the claims. Marvel executives also corroborated Celuski’s story. Marvel editor Mike Martz told Brian Cronin that he had dined with Yoshida, who showed off his “immense Godzilla memorabilia collection.”[3] According to Johnston, Celuski adopted the pseudonym this because as an editor, it would be seen as corrupt if he were allowed to write for other editors. The story laid dormant for several years until, on July 4th, 2017, ex-Marvel editor Gregg Sheigel released a short-story on a podcast[4] in which he related the tale with different names, with C.B. Celuski becoming “C.J. Cregg.” On November 26th, 2017, Twitter user @hermanos[5] posted a tweet asking why no one had looked into why the new Marvel editor-in-chief “chose to use the pen name Akira Yoshida in the early 2000s to write a bunch of ‘Japanese-y’ books for them.”



    Developments

    Celuski’s Response On November 28th, 2017, the first day of Celuski’s tenure as Marvel’s editor in chief, Johnston[1] published a statement from Celuski in which he admitted that he had written as Akira Yoshida in the mid-2000s.

    “I stopped writing under the pseudonym Akira Yoshida after about a year. It wasn’t transparent, but it taught me a lot about writing, communication and pressure. I was young and naïve and had a lot to learn back then. But this is all old news that has been dealt with, and now as Marvel’s new Editor-in-Chief, I’m turning a new page and am excited to start sharing all my Marvel experiences with up and coming talent around the globe.”

    According to Johnston’s understanding of the events, Celuski claims he was planning to quit Marvel in the mid-2000s, and invented the pseudonym so he could write on Dreamwave and Darksiders comics. However, his work as Yoshida on those comics caught the attention of Marvel, who then hired Yoshida for some of their stories. Eventually, Celuski “killed off” Yoshida, resigned from Marvel, and was rehired as a Talent Manager with a clause in his contract that allowed him to write freelance under his own name. Johnston writes that when the Sheigel podcast was released, Celuski had owned up to his past to Marvel executives, who agreed to hire him anyway.

    Online Reaction

    Once the Bleeding Cool story broke, it was picked up by several other publications, including io9[7] and The Guardian.[8] Online, the news was met with jokes and disappointment. Internet comedy personality Seanbaby tweeted a joke about the simplicity of Celuski’s pseudonym, gaining over 1,400 retweets and 3,800 likes[9] (shown below, left). io9 writer Charles Pulliam[10] tweeted amazement as a person of color that a white person would pretend to be another race for months at their job (shown below, right). A thread on /r/comicbooks[11] about the news gained over 230 upvotes.
