          The 15 Most Influential Video Game Characters of All Time

We wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't have rationalizations for our pick of gaming's most influential super-spies, brawlers, arch-villains and redoubtable heroines. But before you wade in, a note about "influential," which we endeavored not to confuse with related terms like "beloved" or "innovative.

The world’s tiniest Game Boy Color, introduced at the 2016 Hackaday SuperConference, is a work of art. This microscopic game console inspired [c.invent] to create how own gaming handheld. His Keymu project on hackaday.io describes an open source, keychain-sized gaming handheld that its builder claims is really the world’s tiniest. How did he make it smaller?

          Classic FMV Game “Tender Loving Care” Released on GOG   
Tender Loving Care ruffled some feathers upon its original release in 1998 for two major reasons. First, the game was irritatingly difficult to classify–it looked like other FMV-heavy point-and-click adventure titles like the Gabriel Knight and Phantasmagoria series, but there weren’t any puzzles to solve; it featured multiple endings, but a randomizing element thrown into the […]

Gracias al código del juego.

Los dataminers, usuarios que exploran el código de los videojuegos para conocer secretos y actualizaciones, están haciendo su agosto con Pokémon GO. Si bien ya conocíamos detalles relacionados con los Pokémon Legendarios y un Pikachu especial, ahora según ComicBook se descubren informaciones sobre el próximo evento del juego que se celebrará el 6 de julio para celebrar el aniversario.

¿Un gran evento para el 6 de julio?


La línea de código haría referencia explícita a esa fecha, indicando el comienzo de un nuevo evento. Hasta la fecha, Pokémon GO ha ido celebrando distintos eventos y festividades en los que ha ido ofreciendo Pokémon de rareza variada para capturar, recompensas y objetos o puntos de experiencia de más fácil obtención. Niantic podría realizar algo similar, si bien no ha dado detalles al respecto.

El nuevo evento coincidirá con el aniversario del juego según las líneas de código encontradas en la app


Un año de Pokémon Go


Pokémon GO ha sido uno de los juegos para móviles más exitosos del último año. El título de Niantic supuso una explosión comercial cuando se lanzó el verano pasado, y aunque en los últimos tiempos no ha registrado un éxito equivalente, con esta actualización trata de buscar un nuevo impulso. Te recomendamos que consultes nuestra guía.

Al poco de salir a la venta una consola, suelen comercializarse ediciones alternativas oficiales de las máquinas, versiones Slim que reducen sus tamaños y hasta versiones conmemorativas de ciertos juegos.

Esta empresa de Oregon, EE. UU. se ha especializado en el diseño de carcasas de manera para dispositivos móviles, portátiles y ahora también consolas trabajando con sumo cuidado este material.

          The Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy is nostalgia done right - and that includes the irritations   

This one comes at you in waves. On first loading the Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, my initial thought was: Oh, this is definitely how they should reissue old games. N Sane Trilogy, which bundles the first three Crash Bandicoot games into one package, adding quality of life stuff like a decent save and checkpoint system alongside time trials, online leaderboards and the chance to play most levels as Coco, has had a lot of work put into it. The soundtrack's been remastered, the cinematics have been entirely redone, the whole thing cruises by at 30fps. The elbowy channels of this trench platformer are still rather poky, but they're fringed with glorious wildlife and delightful texturing as a complete art overhaul has taken place. Ice is gemlike and wonderfully glossy, tar pits are filled with thick black goop, and the jungles! You never saw such jungles! Big fat rubbery leaves, the fraying trunks of palms, the ruffle of a breeze as you race past, smashing crates and collecting fruit.

That's the first wave. The second is quite different. After initially firing the collection up, I poked around in the original game for an hour or so. It's cludgy and fiddly and rather unforgiving. Years after making this, Naughty Dog would perfect the unmissable ledge: the ledge that you leap towards and absolutely cannot avoid connecting with, as Nathan Drake is drawn towards cinematic just-made-it safety as irresistibly as dust bunnies disappearing down the spout of a Dyson DC32 (The Animal - never bettered IMHO). Here, though, if you misjudge a jump by a millimeter, Crash falls into the abyss. No mantling. No hedging. It's actually kind of reassuring: games used to demand this kind of perfection. Through its overuse, the unmissable ledge is one of the more annoying artefacts of modern gaming, but away from the odd pitfall the supremely missable platform of the first Crash game is also kind of annoying. N Sane Trilogy swaps out the graphics but seems to retain the original geometry and the original character of the controls - even though it now supports analogue sticks. This means you get a lavish looking game that often plays in a very rickety manner. Race a tiger over the Great Wall in Warped, for example, and the whole scene is so bright and crisp and lively-looking that it's just weird the way the camera bucks and stumbles behind you, the way you move in humpty, weighty lurches, the way that dragons, who will swoop across the map as you pass, are visibly waiting in the wings as you approach, like soap actors having one last cigarette before nailing their walk-on. Reworking the surface of these games so laboriously but leaving the sometimes-jumbled guts intact feels a little like cruelty on occasion.

But there is a third wave, thankfully, and the third wave crested slowly as something kind of amazing happened to me. As I played through the Crash games on the big 4K telly in the office, the PS4 Pro whirring nobly underneath, people started to gather behind me. This almost never happens. "Oh man, I love Crash," said someone who shall remain nameless. And then another person said: "Go back a few steps, there's a secret crate you missed." This is the kind of game where people remember where the secret crates are kept.

          Top Of The Table – The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire   

Dozens of tabletop games over the years have alluded to the mobster world of The Godfather, and a few have even offered an actual licensed take on the classic film of New York mafia, with its devastating betrayals and family intrigue. But until Corleone’s Empire, I’ve never played a game that so perfectly captures the mood and themes of that memorable movie. Designer Eric M. Lang has been behind some of the most thematically rich and rewarding tabletop games of recent years, and publisher CMON has an eye for stellar production values. Add in some truly evocative art from Karl Kopinski, and The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire nails the setting and tone of Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece, while simultaneously offering a rousing and fast-paced game of strategy and sudden, devastating treachery. 

Corleone’s Empire is a game of worker placement and area control. Two to five players each take on the role of a New York crime family, working to shake down businesses across the boroughs, complete jobs like extortions and backroom deals, and bribe allies into cooperation with your nefarious activities. Don Corleone looms over your criminal projects as the Godfather of organized crime in the city, and you must be careful to launder and hide away your money, as the excess will go in tribute to him at the end of each act. Along the way, it’s your acquisition of illegal goods like guns, booze, blood money, and eventually, narcotics, which fuel your illicit affairs. Turf changes hands all the time, new businesses open for exploitation, and minions are murdered in violent car bomb explosions and drive-by shootings; figures regularly move from the board spaces into the Hudson River after they meet an untimely end. The theming is richly imagined and appropriately tied up in crime and sudden dramatic turns of fate that reshape the contours of the session.

CMON has established a reputation for its great miniatures and top-notch art, and both are in full evidence throughout Corleone’s Empire. The rulebook and cards are filled with brooding character art of the city’s mid-20th century criminals and civic officials. Individual uncolored miniatures are detailed and varied, offering up different visuals for each family Don, Consigliere, and Heir. A horse-head token indicates first-turn status. Every player even has a literal metal suitcase that holds laundered money away from prying eyes. And the New York board map is thoughtfully designed and attractive, appropriately appointed without ever feeling crowded, even in the game’s later busy turns. Everything reinforces and recalls the film. I’m also a big fan of the board’s use of shapes tied to the bases of individual minis and components; even newcomers to the game can quickly grasp where each piece should be played, from hexagonal control markers to square spots that match your family’s thug minis.


Corleone's Empire supports two to five players, but plays best with four or five

The clever nods to the movie would be for naught without a solid game framework. Behind the mafioso concept, smartly structured and briskly paced gameplay unfolds. Split into four roughly similar acts, the game layers on complexity through the gradual introduction of new figures, businesses, allies, and resources. Reach Act II, and your Consigliere mini joins the team. Bid more than your opponents, and perhaps you can lure the Mayor to aid your family in Act III. Risk entry into the dangerous world of narcotics in the late game, and you’ve got a new flexible resource that can help fuel any job. 

In the most important phase of each act, players take turns deploying their miniatures onto designated spots across New York City, shaking down businesses like the Barbershop, Korean Laundry, and Gun Dealership, and acquiring the designated resource. Have the most figures in an area, and you gain control of that borough in the subsequent turn, meaning you get a piece of the action every time a player hits up that business in the future. Gathered resources let you complete jobs, which usually offer both concrete rewards and a way to screw over your opponents; you gain money (or launder it) while potentially killing off opponent pieces in key locations across the board. Your own carefully laid plans can be shattered by an opposing player’s machinations. If that sort of messing with each other angers you, Corleone’s Empire is likely to frustrate almost constantly. For me, the sudden changes in fortune communicated a delightful nod to the precipitous and dramatic turns of the movie.  In the end, it’s a combination of acquired money, control exerted around the city, and jobs completed that determine the crime family that will rule New York and win the game.

For a game with so many interlocking systems of resources, control points, and different paths to money and victory, I’m impressed by the ease of play. Down time between turns is very low, as each figure’s placement on the board has a clearly marked consequence and acquisition. In my experience, the game is at its best with four or five players, as interlocking webs of alliances accrue, and players in the lead are suddenly ganged up upon by other players who feel threatened. The abrupt and disastrous falls from a hard-won lead are painful, but bearable since the game completes in a moderate playtime; a two-hour session is enough to finish one game, and for most player groups, that might even be enough to try a second run on the same evening of play, allowing new alliances and grudges to form.  


Each player called a small tin "metal suitcase" to store their money and completed job cards

Strangers to The Godfather may be stymied by the constant references to the movie. But it’s clear that’s a sacrifice that the designer is willing to make, foregoing overt explanations about things like the taking or leaving of canolis, for instance, and instead letting players recognize narrative flavors and moments wherever they can find them. The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire does justice to its inspiration, and the dip into gangster fantasies is a welcome change of pace from more fantastical settings. 

If Corleone’s Empire sounds like a good fit for your friends, you won’t have long to wait to track down a copy; pre-orders are available now, and official launch is July 28th of this year.

I've always been a huge fan of Intel, but it makes my bank account sad planning an entire PC Build around the Intel Core i7-6950X or Intel Core i7-6900K. If you take a close look at the chart below, you can see me in the red. This is an accurate representation of my thought process when choosing between these Intel and AMD processors.


Looks outstanding, right? I'm anxiously awaiting the rest of the parts which will arrive within the next couple days. I picked out each one of these for my needs and budget strictly for Video Editing and a little bit of Gaming. I'm currently operating on a Surface Pro 3 which is amazing for everything but those two hobbies! If you're thinking about doing a build similar to this but concerned about the price, trimming down the SSD and RAM could help with the finances. Be decisive. If you're not careful, you may end up spending a week researching a single component. In a world full of constant innovation, it's always a good time for an upgrade!

I'm going to throw together a quick build guide with performance results soon for anyone interested. We'll see how well it functions! Hope this helps someone consider a Ryzen upgrade! Big shoutout to Amazon for mastering the logistics of fast shipping! Good luck!

          Reeling from Horrifying GOP Health Care Bills? Just wait till you lose your Voting Rights, just around the corner.    
While everyone is still wondering how Republicans could ever seriously fix their health care bills that drop 22 to 23 million Americans with a few more insane amendments, voting rights is about to take a huge hit:
The Republican presidential tactic of crippling agencies you don't like by putting either the incompetent or the actively hostile in charge of them (continues) ... Kris Kobach, the godfather of the national movement to suppress the votes of people the GOP would prefer not to exercise the franchise (was) named as vice-chairman of his Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, a snipe hunt the only apparent purpose of which is maintaining the fiction that masses of people, many of them brown, are gaming our elections. 
Here's the most damning news that might just alert us to specific Republican governors who take the bait:
Kobach wrote a letter to his fellow secretaries of state that left many jaws on the floor. From The Kansas City Star: In a Wednesday letter, Kobach asked the Connecticut secretary of state's office to provide the commission with all publicly available voter roll data, including the full names of all registered voters along with their addresses, dates of birth, the last four digits of their Social Security numbers, voting history and other personal information ... he sent similar letters to election officials in every state. 

Quite simply, any secretary of state who complies with this request is either too stupid to hold the job, or is in sympathy with Kobach's goal of whitewashing the electorate.  Alex Padilla, the Secretary of State for California, said, "California's participation would only serve to legitimize the false and already debunked claims of massive voter fraud made by the President, the Vice President, and Mr. Kobach. The President's Commission is a waste of taxpayer money and a distraction from the real threats to the integrity of our elections today: aging voting systems and documented Russian interference in our elections."

Connecticut Secretary of State Denise Merrill was a bit more discreet: "The courts have repudiated his methods on multiple occasions but often after the damage has been done to voters. Given Secretary Kobach's history we find it very difficult to have confidence in the work of this commission."
BREAKING: Scott Walker gives up voter information to Trump's big government demands. Hey, we just had a recount too. All is well?

Wisconsin elections officials said Friday that they'll sell some voter information to a presidential commission investigating election fraud. Administrator Mike Haas issued a statement Friday saying data is available for purchase and the commission must release it to buyers, adding that the commission routinely sells the information to political parties, candidates and researchers. The commission would charge the presidential panel $12,500 for the data.
Having done a lot of research on "the right to vote," I found that despite the guarantee in the 14th, 15th and 19th Amendments...with help from the Voting Rights Act (now destroyed by activist conservative Justices), voting seems to be the least defended squishy right ever. In fact, I could make the argument that women and African Americans were definitely given the right to vote, but anyone else including white guys...nope.

What if Obama did this? Always the best test against hypocritical Republican policy:
As Vanita Gupta points out in that same K.C. Star report, if someone in the Obama administration had made this request, at the very least, there would be a full week of howler monkeys screaming about federalism from every perch in every conservative think-tank in the jungle. At the most, there would be hearing after hearing about the Obama administration's plan to seed thousands of the president's fellow Kenyans in every crucial precinct in Ohio and Florida. What's more important, though, is that the national campaign to roll back voting rights now has reached the highest levels of government, with the blessing of the president* and the president*-in-waiting. This is the final step backwards across the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

A Ripple Effect: 21st Century Innovations that Matter
Cheryl Lemke

Adolescent learning: peers, school, home, distributed resources, work, networked publics (a networked space where the public meets). —B. Barron, 2006

We need to create environments where we can work and learn peer-to-peer with our students because that is where they go to learn what interests them. Students need to see the value-added that the teacher offers.

94% of adolescents are involved in online gaming. —Pew

Multi-tasking is a myth. Our brains have an executive function that allows us to only think about things serially. Students, though, are faster than adults because they are younger (our brain processing speed peaks at between 20 and 30. When you move from one task to another, there is a slight delay and loss of time. There is, however, background tasking (e.g., listening to music). When students are engaged in difficult to cognitively process content, we should decrease the need for background tasking and multi-tasking. Drill and practice builds automaticity that leads to a greater ability to do background tasking while engaged in processing new content. Our students are giving us their “continuous partial attention” (Linda Stark).

http://www.positech.co.uk/democracy2/ : This is a game that allows users to try and keep a country alive. It considers elections, economics, etc.

If you grant students choice, on average, their grades will increase by a full grade.

On average there’s less than 10 seconds of sustained discussion in the average classroom. Instead, there is teach-talk followed by student-talk, followed by teacher-talk.

http://voicethread.com: This is a nice tool for working with video, stills, audio, and text/drawings.

http://flowingdata.com/: This is a tool that assists in visualizing data (e.g., Twitter posts about Obama during the Inaugeration, growth of Wal-Mart). http://gapminder.org is a similar program that allows you to track demographic features over time.

http://scratch.mit.edu/: This tool is good for teaching students about gaming and gaming environments from a design perspective.

WebQuests 2.0: A Richer Web Improves a Good Idea
http://tommarch.com

  • http://clipmarks.com: Allows you to copy/paste from multiple webpages therefore creating a pool of resources related to a personally-selected topic.
  • http://diigo.com: Allows you to highlight, ask questions, and comment on individual websites.
  • http://pageflakes.com: This is an alternative to iGoogle. It provides you with an assigned web address instead of having it just be available after logging in. The site allows you to subscribe to multiple RSS feeds in the form of tabs at the top of the page. This would be good to allow students to take turns reviewing individual webquests.
  • http://vue.org: This is an online version of Inspiration.
  • CEQ•ALL ("Seek All")—Choice, Effort, Quality, Attitude, Labor of Love (A taxonomy for this century); Set-up educational opportunities that allow students to make choices, requires hard work/effort, the teacher makes him/herself available for ensuring quality of student work/learning, allows students to feel good about themselves by having a good attitude, and teachers and students must put a labor of love into their work.
Vendor Notes

Global Fever (a vendor that provides curriculum relating to the environment) created a collection of rich resources using ComicLife. Their sample pages all use ComicLife and can serve as excellent examples.

Kids.gov: Like Thinkfinity, this is a central location for accessing several website. Its function is to bring together government sites intended for use by children.

From Banned to Planned: Cell Phones in Schools
Hall Davidson

http://discoveryedspeakersbureau.com/node/119

Poll Everywhere
: Allows you to have students take a quick poll using their phones.

Suggestions for ways teachers are using cell phones in the classroom are avilable at http://k12cellphoneprojects.wikispaces.com another resource is http://www.cellphonesinlearning.com.

Voicethread
: A tool for creating projects like HyperStudio, but it allows you to add audio recorded directly from your cell phone.

Davidson suggests we rename "cell phones." In some countries they call it a hand phone and keitai ("a snug, intimate technosocial tethering"). Cell phones are different from other technologies because they are both input and output devices.

"Classroom management is less of an issues when engaged learning is taking place."

Qik: This site allows you to broadcast live from a cell phone. It will also allows you to embed code into blogs or Google Earth.

Shazam
: It allows you to hold-up your cell phone to a song and the phone can decode the name of the song.

Cell phones can read bar codes (bar code readers are freely available online) and they can create bar codes from text/pictures (QR code generators).

Amazon bought a company that does object recognition (e.g., you can take a picture of someone's shoes, send it to Amazon, and Amazon with offer it for purchase).

Davidson has placed Fatherlee's paperwork for using cell phones in the classroom on his website (see above). It includes a letter home to parents, instructions for designing cell-phone educational activities, and a tech-survey for parents to ensure students aren't being charged for their in-class work.

I watched the new iMac launch yesterday and it left me thinking, "why not". I am working with a University that has just agreed to outfit some of their labs with iMacs. The reason, because it can run Windows seemingly as well as a Dell. This has got me thinking, "Are the iMacs pointing us to the future?"

My father went to work for GE back in the late 60's/early 70's after getting out of the Air Force (I promise this is relevant). One of the perks of the job was that he always got to bring home the latest appliances because that was the section he worked in. I remember when the side-by-side refrigerators came into fashion. There were a lot of factors that pushed it. 1) More and more food had preservatives in them and didn't need to be refrigerated so there was less space needed to store cold food. 2) Families grew smaller and didn't need as much storage. 3) The average house wasn't even close to the square footage as it is today so space mattered. People saw that they could get rid of their old freezer and refrigerator and get a combination that fit in the same amount of space as just one of their old appliances.

So how the heck is this relevant? Well I think it shows a trend that people often apply to only computing technology. That is individuals want less physical things that can do more functions. Look at cell phones, Phone + PDA + Camera + GPS device. Part of the problem in my opinion though is that different OS's are better for different types of activities. I think Vista has proven that for me because I bought the Home Premium and it is still just Windows. I know there are a lot of cool things underneath Vista, but at the end of the day even with my $600 vid card for my on-line gaming fix, it still isn't better than the Wii for gaming. Some of that is hardware but a lot of that is simply OS. The new iMac though showed me that hardware is no longer the factor with a single chip set, multiple OS's can be ran on a device. Wouldn't it be cool to have a single computing device that was good for business applications and great for on-demand media and great for music composition and great for gaming. Wouldn't it be cool to have a cool new smart phone that also was a great mobile gaming device (I am talking DS or DS lite cool not Live Search club cool). Well I think the iMac is showing us that this is and should be possible.
          Quick update on the gaming console crow   
Even though I took a shellacking from my friends about the PS3 comments, it is proving to be correct with one twist. Microsoft is gaining the most share, Sony is bombing (so much so they have already lowered their price before the holiday season) and Nintendo is gaining all of Sony's share minus a bit to MS. I suspect to see Nintendo drop their price by the holiday in a surprise move, but not too surprising since they are the only company to make money off of their system. I then see the xBox 360 and PS3 following suit and for Sony yep that will be the second price drop in a year.
          Eating some crow or shark   
Well it seems like I was wrong about the Playstation 3. The pre-orders sold out around here in less than 15 minutes and it seems like the latest reservations lists are pretty long. It is insane but I guess this seems to be a product more of the aging gaming population that has $600 to drop versus the disposable income of the teens.
          Is $600 gaming consoles = Jumping the Shark?

So okay I have bought them all since the Atari 2600. I am officially a gaming nerd and cannot break my addiction, but the vendors might be helping me out. So I do have a XBox, PS2 and Game Cube right now and was planning on upgrading all 3. The problem...$600. At first I thought, well at least with one I will get a BlueRay disc player and the other a HDDV player, but then I thought about it. Okay never mind that is just me.

I know the devices are moving closer and closer to a replacement device for a PC in many homes. I have thought for years that this is the ultimate Trojan horse play for MS to usurp Dell and others while maintaining a good partnership with them. Let's come back to buying behavior though. Mom and Dad are not going to get that larger picture that maybe they won't have to buy the Insperion because their PS3 can do e-Mail, play the mp3s and surf the web. What they are going to do is sit there with their hard earned money and say..."how about that Nintendo Wii for $200". I am not sure I would take a $.07 bet on this one because things have surprised me before in this space. What I would take a $.07 on is that Nintendo gains market share, Microsoft stays the same and Sony is the big loser. MS might be the big surprise just because I think they are the only ones focused on the next gen of gaming (look at the stuff they are doing with Peter "he is the king" Jackson).
          This could be interesting...probably a failure...but interesting   
One of my favorite brands is at it again. Sony has just announced that they will be shipping a Sony mylo device in September.

If you remember the Sony mylo was a sevice about 5 years ago that fell on its face because of the high service fees and the fact it only worked with the Clie at launch doomed it to failure. This is different though.

This Sony mylo (which stands for My Life On-Line) is a device. You have the touch screen monitor that slides open for a keyboard. Several applications such as e-mail, IM, music player (btw with a 1 gig flash memory built in), video player, photo editor and viewer and VoIP. VoIP you ask? Yep well one of the interesting things about the device is that there is no cellular service for it. It work purely on a WiFi network. I agree with Sony WiFi is becoming prevelant in the US for their target (18-24 year olds) especially around college campuses but I wonder if they aren't 5 years too early.

Three bummers about the device for me.

1) There is no UMD support. I was hoping that they would make the device capable of playing movies to add to its appeal.
2) There is no gaming focus. Yeah I know there PSP is out there but it is overkill for most games on the market for it. The reason the PSP gets knocked (although a decent device) is its size. This could have become a "PSP lite" version to compete more head to head with the Nintendo DS.
3) Lack of partnerships. I saw somewhere that eBay's Skype was planning on being in there somehow but it would have been nice to at least see an iTunes partnership. Apple needs to start making device deals and device dealers need to start making content deals if they want to compete in the long run.
          Zuna vs iPod   
I have been engulfing myself with Zuna material over that last several months trying to get a clearer picture of actually what MS is planning on shipping. It looks smart with its WiFi connectivity instead of fumbling with cables and its gargantuan hard drive that will make 60 Gigs music players look like an IBM AT soon enough.

That being said the platform that will win will be the one that has the content. Apple has done a great job with iTunes and now the TV shows (something like 150 shows in their format). Microsoft did a good job with the gaming console but not enough to lure games like Metal Gear Solid and such huge titles away from Sony and thus Sony is still winning. Speaking of Sony though let's not mention why the heck they aren't in this battle ( Walkman ).

MS is going to have the better player at least until Apple has a chance to regroup and possibly leapfrog but their success lies in the hands of some Desperate Housewives. However, even Survivors will make money in this House (man!!! I couldn't resist but that is bad).

June 30, 2017: Our second attempt at game 7 went better than the first one did, but we still lost. Once again Bellatrix came out in the first round and the beating we were taking from the Dark Arts cards was awful. There was one turn where we drew 7 due to the cards instructing us to draw more! We only got rid of one Horcrux because we were so concentrated on getting rid of villains.

Shh... Trust me, no one here wants to hear that. For this crowd, there are two groups: 1) Totally awesome, smart, cool people who are completely comfortable with competition and love great games; and 2) Socially awkward nerd snowflakes who can't handle competition and like dumb games because they're dumb.

There are no alternatives, and people definitely don't just like what they like.

Thank you, I enjoyed that. ;)

Back to mild seriousness: Would anyone play a game longer than 15 minutes if they knew early on that they had no possible chance of winning? Whether I am winning or losing, as soon as the game state has been verified there doesn't seem to be any point in playing the game out. I don't know about anyone else but I actually play board games to have fun, and that isn't fun for me. (I also don't play chess or go, where a common way to end the game is resigning.)


Absolutely. In fact, you know a good game design when you want to do just this. The experience and narrative are strong enough that the competition is only part of the experience.

I did just this last night. I played a friend a game of Twilight Struggle. He is solidly experienced and it was my second game. I wanted to play it again and it provides a decent competition experience. Plus, he's a good player of games in general. The experience was very positive for me even though I knew going in that I was extremely likely to lose and did do just that by the , I think, 5th or 6th turn.

I feel sad for people whose only joy from gaming comes from the possibility of winning. But some people only like stories with happy endings.

"[E]xtremely likely to lose" and losing by the 6th (out of 10) turn in a 2-player game is quite a bit different from being in last place in a first or second turn where you have literally no way to ever catch up, no matter what happens.

If I liked perfect information games more I'd be fine with this, as you have complete control of your destiny. You can't blame anyone else for losing at chess than yourself.

But as I've already said, I prefer a little chaos in my games, and if the randomness can absolutely punish a mistake from the first turn, and I have zero chance to catch up, then I consider the rest of the game futile. I like games that reward the best strategies over the long run, but over shorter periods of time I'm OK with a little diversity to shake things up.

You lost 7 Wonders because another player's neighbors didn't keep certain cards away from the winner? Too bad, speak up more or deal with it. Lost in a poker tournament because your AA lost to QQ on a luck river card? That's life. Your whole game of Puerto Rico was ruined because one person didn't do what is commonly considered the right thing to do? Get off my island.

If you play Five Tribes and spend 30 minutes trying to find the absolute best move you might win the game but I'll never sit at another table with you. And that's not because I lost. I can handle losing. I just don't want to sit there for 30 minutes waiting for my turn.

There is a reason many games hide some information that can theoretically be track precisely with a pen and paper, and that is it's not fun when someone can sit there every turn and eventually math out exactly what they need to do. That might be fun for you but it isn't for me. If I am confident in my strategy I should be able to "feel like I won" but not necessarily know it. The "not knowing" is what keeps some people excited through the whole experience whether they had a legitimate chance or not.
          Twitch is doing all it can to attract more streamers (AMZN)   

Top 20 Twitch CreatorsBI Intelligence

This story was delivered to BI Intelligence "Digital Media Briefing" subscribers. To learn more and subscribe, please click here.

Amazon’s streaming platform, Twitch, has unveiled a slew of new features for its mobile app, which could help attract more broadcasters and users to its platform, The Verge reports.

The announcement continues a strong year of updates for Twitch — it recently released subscription options and in-stream video game sales for affiliate streamers to help broadcasters monetize. The new updates are expected to be available in July.

Here are a few of the more notable updates:

  • Mobile live streaming. Broadcasters can now stream to their channel from Twitch’s mobile app. This could attract more streamers to Twitch, as the feature provides flexibility, and a more convenient way to create content. This could draw in more viewers if broadcasters begin streaming non-game content with greater frequency. However, broadcasters can’t yet live stream gameplay, which may be discouraging to those interested in the medium.
  • Dark mode. This is a user interface theme that converts the normally white elements of Twitch’s interface to a darker shade. The mode could present a more pleasant viewing experience for users watching in low-light environments, helping to further entice people to binge watch on the platform. In turn, this could boost user engagement and retention. The feature helps differentiate Twitch from YouTube, which doesn’t currently offer a dark mode on its mobile app.
  • Twitch Pulse. Twitch Pulse is a social feed where broadcasters can post content — including text, links, videos, and images — for viewers to engage with. The feed is similar to Twitter, and could help with user retention as it provides content for users to interact with when streams aren’t occurring. Building out Twitch’s mobile app will be crucial for it to stay competitive against other popular social apps, such as Facebook and Snapchat, which have a strong mobile presence with multiple use cases and functionalities, as well as other streaming platforms like YouTube Live.

As Twitch and other streaming platforms grow, one must ask what the future of eSports will look like. How high can it climb? Could it reach the mainstream popularity of baseball or football? How will advertisers be able to reach an audience that does its best to shield itself from advertising?

Robert Elder, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled an unparalleled report on the eSports ecosystem that illuminates the business of eSports from four angles:

  • The gaming nucleus of eSports, including an overview of popular eSport genres and games; the influence of game publishers, and the spectrum of strategies they adopt toward their respective eSport scenes; the role of eSports event producers and the tournaments they operate.
  • The eSports audience profile, its size, global reach, and demographic, psychographic, and behavioral attributes; the underlying factors driving its growth; why they are an attractive target for brands and broadcasters; and the significant audience and commercial crossover with traditional sports.
  • eSports media broadcasters, including digital avant-garde like Twitch and YouTube, newer digital entrants like Facebook and traditional media outlets like Turner’s TBS Network, ESPN, and Canal Plus; their strategies and successes in this space; and the virtual reality opportunity.
  • eSports market economics, with a market sizing, growth forecasts, and regional analyses; an evaluation of the eSports spectacle and its revenue generators, some of which are idiosyncratic to this industry; strategic planning for brand marketers, with case studies; and an exploration of the infinite dynamism and immense potential of the eSports economy.

          Cyvasse   

Valhar Morghulis!
And all games must be reborn, just in time for Season 7.

There are plenty of great versions out there of George R.R. Martin-inspired Cyvasse board games. Jonas Platte’s Cyvasse Online and DutchMogul’s monumental printable project are two stand-outs. This is my contribution.

Passages from throughout A Song of Ice and Fire are foundational for the game design, though there may be small discrepancies. My goal was to design a game that might well have been played between Tyrion and Young Griff, but whose creation wasn’t dictated by every quote.

The biggest innovation of this version is, I think, the choice of which side of a piece to use during set up. Since the mechanic has its inspiration in the face-changing of Jaqen H’ghar, I like to imagine this version as ‘Braavosi Cyvasse’, born as a part of the Faceless Men’s training, which then spread beyond the House of Black and White as more casual entertainment.

A Rules Guide, Board, and Labels for the pieces are included in the Thing Files. Basic Tacky glue has worked fine for me to attach labels to pieces.

The board: I got myself a custom 18x18in. playmat made by Inked Gaming, but you can print a working version on two pieces of 11x17in. paper as well.

Screen: Create your own! I plan on making one out of two cereal boxes, one slightly smaller than the other so they can slide in/out, and have them double as storage for the pieces.

I’m fairly new to both game design and CAD, so comments and pointers on either are welcome.

          France, Spain, Italy & Portugal to Share Online Poker Pools   

Universally accessed, border-free online poker - at least in Europe - is showing signs of resurgence from its ashes.

At least that's the impression left after an announcement today from French gaming regulator ARJEL.

On July 6 the Regulatory Authorities of France, Italy, Spain and Portugal will sign an agreement for the shared liquidity of online poker.

As communicated by the General Directorate of Game Management:

"This agreement will lay the foundations for cooperation between the signatory authorities in such a framework and will be followed by developments within each jurisdiction that are necessary in order to make liquidity possible for the game of poker. "

After years of being in walled off, segregated markets, this is great news for French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese poker players and means the opening of internet frontiers for players.

It also likely means a surge in new poker offerings from licensed online rooms to bring in new recreational players and expand the player pool even further.

reunion europe
Regulators make it happen.

In the Works Since Last May

The agreement between Spain, France, Italy and Portugal didn't emerged from nowhere.

Last May regulators from Germany, Austria, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and the United Kingdom held a meeting in Lisbon where several aspects of administrative cooperation between the parties were discussed.

Issues such as money laundering and terrorist financing, new games, virtual currencies, cross border enforcement and prevention of fraud were discussed.

Shortly after the DGOJ held a meeting with the Danish Regulatory Authority (Spillemyndigheden), whose legislation is very similar to the Spanish one, and where also conversations of future were held.

UK, Germany Not Included for Now

While the inclusion of major poker playing populations like the UK, Germany and Scandinavia would be a dream it will be the countries of "Southern Europe" that take the first step on July 6 in Rome.

pokerlistingscom invades london for the wsope 11616
Adding UK would be nice, too.

France, Spain, Italy and Portugal will give their online players the opportunity to do something they have advocated for for years: to play amongst each other.

The expanded player pool will likely inspire poker rooms like PokerStars, PartyPoker and 888poker to consider organizing tournaments that take into account the overall pool of players from all four countries (although some operators are not yet licensed in some countries, like 888poker in Portugal).

It's also well known that the #1 French poker operator, Winamax, is preparing its entry into Spain, Portugal and Italy.

Details of the implementation are still to be sorted but the framework for cooperation should be in place the begin the process starting as early as next week.

          Zelda Symphony interview: 'Video game music is very emotional'   

The Legend of Zelda Nintendo computer game series has millions of fans across the globe, with main character Link adored in the gaming world.

It was little wonder then that games and music fans rejoiced when the orchestral show Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses opened a few years ago, bringing the series' music to the stage.

Their latest show Master Quest is due to tour the world this year and Pressparty caught up with producer Jason Michael Paul to find out more.

How did the Zelda Symphony come to be? What was the original spark of inspiration?

It started out with Nintendo asking me to produce the opening for the E3 press event at the Nokia in 2010. I produced three concerts in London, Tokyo, and LA as part of the 25th Anniversary series of concerts. I also produced the orchestral CD that was included as part of the bundle with Skyword Sword. After the success of the 25th Anniversary concerts I came up with a touring show, Symphony of the Goddesses and the rest as they say is history. 

Why do you think video game music translates so well into the live music circuit?

Video game music is very emotional and is synced with certain game cues - as a player you're experiencing so much in that moment. Live music, especially with a full orchestra and choir, is very similar because the senses are all being overwhelmed at once. There's so much to experience and take in, both in an auditory and visual way which translates into emotion. 

What have been the toughest challenges in creating the show?

No comment...

 

Did you feel pressure when overseeing the production of a live music show based on a game that is loved by millions?

My favourite part about Zelda are the people who created it and continue to work on it. Miyamoto san, Kondo san, and Aonuma san deliver a superior experience that grows as the game does. Because of this, I was not so much pressured as I was passionate about creating the ultimate Zelda experience for fans. 

How supportive have Nintendo been throughout the whole process?

Nintendo has been nothing but supportive. I've worked with closely with Miyamoto san, Kondo san, and Aonuma san. The show you see is the show they want you to see. It is the best reflection of what they want a Zelda concert to be. It is my job to deliver exactly the show that they want fans to see when it comes to Zelda.

What is different about the 2015 tour Master Quest?

There are new arrangements that have been added from 'A Link Between Worlds' and the brand new 'Majora's Mask' - which are my favourite. 

What do you think is the highlight of the show?

Across all of our performances, the highlight of the show is the grand finale at the end - seeing all the fans, some cosplaying, really celebrating and enjoying Zelda. 

What sort of future do you see for the Zelda Symphony project?

Right now we are currently focused on this current tour - we've been adding new tour dates! For the future, we of course hope to celebrate the franchise they way it deserves. 

Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses - Master Quest will visit London's Wembley Arena on April 17.

          Breath of the Wild: Master Trials DLC is now available   

If finding all those Korok Seeds isn't keeping you busy during The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's post-game, fear not! The first of two announced DLC packs for Link's newest adventure is available today. The Master Trials brings even more depth to Hyrule. Most notably, a dungeon which is composed of 45 separate rooms has been added. In this dungeon, players must prove their fighting ability by clearing each room of enemies before being allowed to move forward. What makes this interesting is that Link is stripped of his awesome gear, forcing us to fight smart.

If this seems like a lot of work, it's for good reason. When this dungeon is completed successfully, the Master Sword will permanently glow. Originally, the Master Sword would only enter this state within dungeons, around Guardians, and so on. While it glows, the blade of evil's bane is two times stronger than normal. That's a whopping 60 attack power, over the standard 30.

One huge and new dungeon not enough? How about the whole game with extra difficulty? The Master Trials also enables hard mode for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Enemies now regenerate health mid-battle, and are more perceptive of Link's whereabouts if he's sneaking around. Exclusive to hard mode, enemies on floating platforms now exist throughout Hyrule. Taking these airborne baddies out yields a worthwhile treasure, similar to clearing a Bokoblin camp.

The Master Trials DLC also adds a feature called the Hero's Path. Enabling it draws out Link's path on the map of Hyrule, depicting where he has and hasn't traveled on foot. On top of this handy update, players will also be able to find a hidden item called the Travel Medallion which can set a custom fast-travel point based on Link's current location.

Finally, some new items have been added to Hyrule. While most of the new items are cosmetic fun (like Majora's Mask), the Korok's Mask is probably the most useful. With the Korok Mask equipped, players will more easily locate Korok Seeds. With 900 Korok Seeds in the wild, this is a blessing for all the lovely completionists out there.

At $19.99, you can purchase the Expansion Pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This includes The Master Trials - available now - and The Champion's Ballad, which is out in December.


          Get N. Sane with Crash Bandicoot today   

Crash Bandicoot, the original PlayStation mascot is back and more high-def than ever. Coming to the PlayStation 4, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a fully remastered collection of great Crash Bandicoot games. Specifically, this collection features Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.

Though originally created and developed by Naughty Dog, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is brought to us by Vicarious Visions. It's important to note that Vicarious Visions views this collection a remaster and not a remake, since they used Naughty Dog's original level geometry to rebuild the gameplay from the ground up.

Each game was given a graphical overhaul, as well as some quality-of-gaming improvements. Among these is the ability to play through each game as Coco Bandicoot (Crash's sister), unified checkpoints, manual and automatic save systems, and time trials for each game. Originally, time trials were only featured in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. Finally, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy gives all three titles the 4K video and audio treatment, making it a perfect addition for PlayStation 4 Pro owners. Now you can hear all those old school sound effects on your new school hardware!

Be sure to add this legendary series of games to your modern collection by picking up Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy from the PlayStation Store, or your local game shop.


          The Neck King, Kurt Angle, has arrived for the WWE 2K18 pre-order bonus   

 

Bob: Hey, brother! Guess who's coming to WWE 2K18 as a pre-order bonus character? You know his name, The Olympic Gold Medalist! The Wrestling Machine!! The American Hero himself! Kurt Angle baby!

Jim: That's right Bob, Angle revealed this during a press conference where he said we'd get not one, but TWO different versions of his popular wrestling persona. First, the "American Hero," the persona that made him a super star, the other the "Wrestling Machine," which he did when people sort of card about ECW for a bit.

Bob: Jim I could not agree more ECW is a literal non-entity at this point but Angle went on in the press conference to praise the young superstar Seth Rollins, cover star of 2K18, and expressed interest in changing his finishing move into the Stone Cold Stunner, which doesn't make a ton of sense but we'll forgive our man Kurt because his neck is so massive.

Jim: Yes and look at the size of that neck Bob its thicker than a California Red Wood.

Bob: Thicker than a bowl of cold oatmeal.

Jim: Thicker than someone who thinks they can take on King Kurt in his prime!

Bob: This is going to be an epic game, with the last one having over 175 playable characters when you include the DLC, we cannot wait to see what we get out of this installment.

Jim: Absolutely and the game comes out October 17th for PS4 and Xbox One so save the date and get ready, because The Angle Slam is coming for you and you know it's doneso when he gets you there.

Bob: Hoo-ah.

Jim: Yes.


          StarCraft Remastered has a release date and price   

 

The remaster of StarCraft, StarCraft Remastered, that was announced in March, will be coming to PCs worldwide on August 14th for $15 USD. The remastered version of the game will include the Brood War expansion. You can preorder the game now and it'll live in the Blizzard app.

The artwork and visual assets have been redone, with native widescreen aspect ratio and 4K support. Audio has been refined as well, and players can even swap between the new and old graphics incase you're some idiot who likes BAD, OLD graphics.

The gameplay will remain the same, with the same beloved balance between the races, Turron, Proots, and Zoorb. More news to come, I'm sure.

Nintendo is known as a casual gaming company, but the Nintendo Switch is more powerful than it looks. If you want to get the most out of your console, you’ll definitely need the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Well, actually, we should amend that statement because the Nintendo-brand Pro controller is crazy expensive. There’s another option that’s set to be released soon though, and it’s called the Nintendo Switch HORIPAD Wired Controller. It’s officially licensed by Nintendo, it’s just as good as the first-party Pro controller, and it only costs $30 on Amazon. Do yourself a favor and pre-order one or two now, because they’re going to be tough to find once they’re released.

Here are a few key details from the product page:

  • Officially licensed wired controller for Nintendo Switch
  • Turbo functions
  • Detachable D-pad adapter
  • Precision offset analog sticks
  • Fast-action trigger shoulder buttons

          The best laptops of 2017: Ultrabooks, budget PCs, 2-in-1s, and more   

Choosing the best laptop can be difficult these days. With companies like Dell, HP, Acer, and Asus continually launching updates of popular notebooks and expansions of product lines, we’re all but swimming in options right now.

Summer has pushed even more convertibles, 2-in-1s, and traditional notebooks onto store shelves. The most interesting ones poke holes in existing assumptions about certain categories. Microsoft’s Surface Laptop, for example, is an attempt to revive the company’s battle with Chromebooks, while Dell’s Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming—our “Best budget gaming laptop” pick—offers 1080p gaming for just $850. Vendors also are serious about squeezing AMD’s new CPUs into their lineups, with Asus recently debuting the first Ryzen laptop at Computex.

          The best PC games of 2017 (so far)   

Usually I start these mid-year lists of the best PC games with “Can you believe it’s already June?” But I think I speak for everyone when I say, “wow, we’re only halfway through 2017? Seriously?” This has been one of the busiest spring release windows I’ve ever seen, with dozens of major PC games already released this year.

Sure, a few we were looking forward to turned out to be high-profile flops (cough Mass Effect: Andromeda cough), but there have also been some instant classics—Nier: Automata, Prey, Thimbleweed Park, and more.

          AbleGamers' Player Panels could make future games more disability-friendly   

Nonprofit charity AbleGamers has been helping gamers with disabilities get the technology they need to play since 2004. Now, the organization’s new AbleGamers Player Panels initiative wants to help games become even more accessible—from the inside.

AbleGamers and the University of York created Player Panels to connect gamers with disabilities with developers and researchers who want to tap into their expertise. The idea stemmed from frequent calls from game companies looking for testers with disabilities, and from conversations with Xbox and PlayStation officials about how to advance more accessible gaming, AbleGamers COO Steve Spohn told PCWorld in a Skype interview.

Echipamentul tri-band AC5300 Wi-Fi oferă 8 porturi LAN gigabit şi este motorizat de un procesor quad-core cu performanţe la nivel desktop. Managementul reţelei de jocuri este simplificat prin panoul ROG Gaming Center.

ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 oferă Wi-Fi tri-band AC5300 cu două benzi separate de 5GHz şi o bandă de 2.4GHz, permiţând utilizatorilor să creeze o reţea Wi-Fi de înaltă viteză, dedicată pentru gaming, prin alocarea uneia dintre benzile de 5GHz pentru jocuri, lăsându-le pe celelalte pentru uzul general. Pasionaţii de servere în reţea (NAS) au la dispoziţie funcţia Link Aggregation (802.3ad) care permite folosirea a două porturi LAN pentru a se obţine o conexiune rapidă cu viteza de 2Gbps.

Dispozitivul oferă şi  alte inovaţii care îmbunătăţesc experienţa jocurilor în reţea:

  • ROG Gaming Center le oferă gamerilor controlul asupra reţelei, furnizând informaţii cuprinzătoare ale aspectelor ce ţin de buna funcţionare a jocurilor, cum ar fi dispozitivele conectate, statisticile de trafic şi disponibilitatea serverelor de jocuri.
  • GT-AC5300 este primul router de gaming care oferă trei niveluri de accelerare a jocurilor: două porturi LAN pentru gaming, Game Boost şi Gamers Private Network. Aceste facilităţi puternice prioritizează toate tipurile de dispozitive, ce sunt conectate pe porturile dedicate, precum şi traficul de date al jocurilor, în timp ce minimizează răspunsul serverelor pentru un gameplay fluid, fără latenţe.
  • Wi-Fi Radar permite utilizatorilor să analizeze semnalul wireless pentru a detecta orice interferenţă şi să aleagă canalul cel mai puţin congestionat pentru cea mai bună performanţă
  • Game Boost analizează traficul în reţea şi prioritizează pachetele de gaming pentru cea mai bună performanţă în jocuri şi Game IPS (Intrusion Prevention System), care protejează reţeaua împotriva ameninţărilor externe.
  • RangeBoost este o combinaţie de hardware şi software ce creşte semnificativ aria de acoperire, îmbunătăţind transferul la distanţe mari. Cu ajutorul RangeBoost, jucătorii au libertatea de a rula jocurile favorite oriunde doresc, nu unde decide routerul.
  • Pentru securitate, ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 dispune de Game IPS, un sistem de prevenţie de ultimă oră, ce are la bază tehnologia Trend Micro. Game IPS protejează reţele împotriva atacurilor şi ameninţărilor externe, neutralizându-le înainte ca acestea să ajungă la dispozitivele conectate în reţea. Fiind integrat în router, chiar şi atunci când softwareul de securitate al calculatorului este oprit, Game IPS protejează reţeaua împotriva atacurilor şi intruziunilor, oferind jucătorilor liniştea necesară.

Disponibilitate

ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 este aşteptat pe piaţa românească la sfârşitul lunii iulie.

          Machine Learning Style Transfer For Museums, Libraries, and Collections   

I putting some thought into some next steps for my algorithmic rotoscope work, which is about the training and applying of image style transfer machine learning models. I'm talking with Jason Toy (@jtoy) over at Somatic about the variety of use cases, and I want to spend some thinking about image style transfers, from the perspective of a collector or curator of images--brainstorming how they can organize, make available their work(s) for use in image style transfers.

Ok, let's start with the basics--what am I talking about when I say image style transfer?  I recommend starting with a basic definition of machine learning in this context, providing by my girlfriend, and partner in crime Audrey Watters. Beyond, that I am just referring to the training a machine learning model by directing it to scan an image. This model can then be applied to other images, essentially transferring the style of one image, to any other image. There are a handful of mobile applications out there right now that let you apply a handful of filters to images taken with your mobile phone--Somatic is looking to be the wholesale provider of these features

Training one of these models isn't cheap. It costs me about $20 per model in GPUs to create--this doesn't consider my time, just my hard compute costs (AWS bill). Not every model does anything interesting. Not all images, photos, and pieces of art translate into cool features when applied to images. I've spent about $700 training 35 filters. Some of them are cool, and some of them are meh. I've had the most luck focusing on dystopian landscapes, which I can use in my storytelling around topics like immigration, technology, and the election

This work ended up with Jason and I talking about museums and library collections, thinking about opportunities for them to think about their collections in terms of machine learning, and specifically algorithmic style transfer. Do you have images in your collection that would translate well for use in graphic design, print, and digital photo applications? I spend hours looking through art books for the right textures, colors and outlines. I also spend hours looking through graphic design archives for movie and gaming industry, as well as government collections. Looking for just the right set of images that will either transfer and produce an interesting look, as well as possible transfer something meaningful to the new images that I am applying styles to.

Sometimes style transfers just make a photo look cool, bringing some general colors, textures, and other features to a new photo--there really isn't any value in knowing what image was behind the style transfer, it just looks cool. Other times, the image can be enhanced knowing about the image behind the machine learning model, and not just transferring styles between images, but also potentially transferring some meaning as well. You can see this in action when I took a nazi propaganda poster and applied to it to photo of Ellis Island, or I took an old Russian propaganda poster and applied to images of the White House. I a sense, I was able to transfer some of the 1000 words applied to the propaganda posters and transfer them to new photos I had taken.

It's easy to think you will make a new image into a piece of art by training a model on a piece of art and transferring it's characteristics to a new image using machine learning. Where I find the real value is actually understanding collections of images, while also being aware of the style transfer process, and thinking about how images can be trained and applied. However, this only gets you so far, there has to still be some value or meaning in how it's being applied, accomplishing a specific objective and delivering some sort of meaning. If you are doing this as part of some graphic design work it will be different than if you are doing for fun on a mobile phone app with your friends.

To further stimulate my imagination and awareness I'm looking through a variety of open image collections, from a variety of institutions:

I am also using some of the usual suspects when it comes to searching for images on the web:

I am working on developing specific categories that have relevance to the storytelling I'm doing across my blogs, and sometimes to help power my partners work as well. I'm currently mining the following areas, looking for interesting images to train style transfer machine learning models:

  • Art - The obvious usage for all of this, finding interesting pieces of art that make your photos look cool.
  • Video Game - I find video game imagery to provide a wealth of ideas for training and applying image style transfers.
  • Science Fiction - Another rich source of imagery for the training of image style transfer models that do cool things.
  • Electrical - I'm finding circuit boards, lighting, and other electrical imagery to be useful in training models.
  • Industrial - I'm finding industrial images to work for both sides of the equation in training and applying models.
  • Propaganda - These are great for training models, and then transferring the texture and the meaning behind them.
  • Labor - Similar to propaganda posters, potentially some emotional work here that would transfer significant meaning.
  • Space - A new one I'm adding for finding interesting imagery that can train models, and experiencing what the effect is.

As I look through more collections, and gain experience training style transfer models, and applying models, I have begun to develop an eye for what looks good. I also develop more ideas along the way of imagery that can help reinforce the storytelling I'm doing across my work. It is a journey I am hoping more librarians, museum curators, and collection stewards will embark on. I don't think you need to learn the inner workings of machine learning, but at least develop enough of an understanding that you can think more critically about the collection you are knowledgeable about. 

I know Jason would like to help you, and I'm more than happy to help you along in the process. Honestly, the biggest hurdle is money to afford the GPUs for training the image. After that, it is about spending the time finding images to train models, as well as to apply the models to a variety of imagery, as part of some sort of meaningful process. I can spend days looking through art collection, then spend a significant amount of AWS budget training machine learning models, but if I don't have a meaningful way to apply them, it doesn't bring any value to the table, and it's unlikely I will be able to justify the budget in the future.

My algorithmic rotoscope work is used throughout my writing and helps influence the stories I tell on API Evangelist, Kin Lane, Drone Recovery, and now Contrafabulists. I invest about $150.00 / month training to image style transfer models, keeping a fresh number of models coming off the assembly line. I have a variety of tools that allow me to apply the models using Algorithmia and now Somatic. I'm now looking for folks who have knowledge and access to interesting image collections, who would want to learn more about image style transfer, as well as graphic design and print shops, mobile application development shops, and other interested folks who are just curious about WTF image style transfers are all about.

          Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 για mid-range smartphones/tablets   
Συνέχεια στις ανακοινώσεις της Qualcomm από τo MWC 2017 Shanghai, με την εταιρεία να παρουσιάζει το νέο SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 για mid-range smartphones/tablets, αλλά και το Snapdragon Wear 1200 για φορετές συσκευές. 
Το Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 αποτελεί τον διάδοχο του Snapdragon 435 και είναι κατασκευασμένο με τη διαδικασία FinFET σε κλίμακα 14nm. Το νέο SoC φέρνει βελτίωση 25% στην ταχύτητα του επεξεργαστή (CPU) και του επεξεργαστή γραφικών (GPU), τουλάχιστον 4 ώρες μεγαλύτερη αυτονομία με την ίδια μπαταρία και τον ίδιο χρόνο φόρτισης, αλλά και 30% μεγαλύτερη εξοικονόμηση ενέργειας κατά τη διάρκεια του mobile gaming. Επιπλέον, το Snapdragon 450 είναι το πρώτο της σειράς 400 που υποστηρίζει σύστημα διπλής κάμερας (έως 13MP + 13MP) με δημιουργία bokeh effect σε πραγματικό χρόνο ή μονή κάμερα έως 21MP. 
Να αναφέρουμε, επίσης, ότι υποστηρίζει την τεχνολογία ταχύτατης φόρτισης Quick Charge 3.0, υποδοχές USB Type-C 3.0 και διαθέτει το X9 LTE modem για ταχύτητες download έως 300mbps Σε ό,τι αφορά το Qualcomm Wear 1200 είναι κατασκευασμένο στα 28nm και υποστηρίζει το νέο πρότυπο LTE IoT, το οποίο μπορεί να μην προσφέρει τις ταχύτητες του 4G LTE, αλλά επιτρέπει την επικοινωνία με ταχύτητα έως 300kbps καταναλώνοντας ελάχιστη ενέργεια. Με αυτόν τον τρόπο οι κατασκευαστές θα μπορούν να δημιουργήσουν φορετές συσκευές και IoT συσκευές με μεγάλη αυτονομία. Χαρακτηριστικά αναφέρουν ότι μια μπαταρία 350mAh θα μπορεί να αντέξει για σχεδόν 10 ημέρες σε αναμονή. Κατά τ’ άλλα, υποστηρίζει GPS/GLONASS, VoLTE και Linux-based λειτουργικά συστήματα.

          ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Premiere Was a Peter Parker Theme Park That Shut Down Hollywood   

For “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Sony Pictures threw a film premiere that would put 100 high school dances to shame.

The Thursday event drew Hollywood and business titans, celebrities and fans to a custom venue that took up the entire block of Hollywood Boulevard where iconic venues the Dolby Theater, the El Capitan, Jimmy Kimmel’s late night set and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel sit.

Long red carpets and expensive receptions are hallmarks for tentpole premieres but the Sony Motion Picture Group, led by Tom Rothman, essentially showed the industry what a Spider-Man-themed set in an amusement park might look like — powered, of course, by Sony products.

Aerial view of “Homecoming” premiere

Sony’s smartphone Xperia hosted an escape room (locked rooms that need puzzles solved to release the people inside). Webbed hammocks, dizzying city landscapes and the steel wings used by Michael Keaton’s villain The Vulture were erected for photo ops and selfies. Sony’s VR equipment showcased  “Homecoming” short-form content.

Dell hosted a truck just for gaming. A rock climbing wall was set up over the famous hand-and-footprints of Mann’s Chinese so partygoers could take a stab at being Peter Parker himself.  The studio also gave tickets to fans that made the best Spidey costumes from scratch. Audi erected a stage to show off their R8 Spyder.

We spotted Rothman playing in the escape room. Robert Downey Jr., wife Susan and Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos were ogling a Spider-Man performer doing gymnastics on a series of beams above the party. On top of being a fanboy dream, it was an experimental way to disrupt the grip-and-grin nature of these routine Hollywood parties.

Stunts like these are not unheard of. Disney trotted out Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter jet for the 2016 premiere of “Rogue One,” and parked it right in the middle of Hollywood Blvd. Almost a decade ago, “Ocean’s Thirteen” set off fireworks from the lot behind Kimmel.

What’s interesting about the “Homecoming” event is how it looks to evolve premieres — and not waste a second in engaging the industry and fans in their product.

A Glimpse of Other Worlds

Download the Updated FAQ for Arkham Horror: The Card Game
 

"As always in my strange and roving existence, wonder soon drove out fear; for the luminous abyss and what it might contain presented a problem worthy of the greatest explorer. That a weird world of mystery lay far down that flight of peculiarly small steps I could not doubt…"
     –H.P. Lovecraft, The Nameless City

In Arkham Horror: The Card Game, you and your friends assume the roles of investigators brave enough to sift through the webs of conspiracy surrounding the strangest and most terrifying events taking place in and around Arkham, Massachusetts.

And what's the one, defining thing that separates you from the local police and other authorities? Your willingness to follow the clues wherever they lead you—no matter how dark or dangerous or maddening the path may become.

Now there's a new twist in your path—one that leads you into a clearing, where you can catch your breath, gather your wits, and plan your next move. The game's developers have released a new FAQ (pdf, 2.0 MB), and you can download it now to shed new light upon your investigation.

For more about the FAQ, we turn to the developers.

A Word from Designers Matthew Newman and Nate French

Greetings, brave investigators!

It’s an exciting time for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. The conclusion to The Dunwich Legacy campaign, Lost in Time and Space, is almost here. With its release, the first full campaign for Arkham Horror: The Card Game will come to a close. But with The Path to Carcosa campaign and a special scenario at Gen Con 2017 following hot on its heels, there are many more stories waiting in the wings!

It is our goal to build upon these adventures and provide players with rewarding gaming experiences and interesting stories to tell for years to come. To that end, we have updated the game’s FAQ to answer some commonly asked questions, clarify some rules, and issue errata to a couple of problematic cards.

Two cards have received errata in this update to the FAQ. The first is one of the two copies of the Burned Ruins (Blood on the Altar, 205). This is a simple errata that changes this card’s Reaction ability to a Forced ability, as it was intended to be a mandatory effect, not an optional one.

The second errata is to the Lucky Dice (Undimensioned and Unseen, 230), which is a much trickier card than it appears.

Due to the timing of the card’s original ability, it did not function as originally intended. As an “After…” effect, its effect would technically only allow you to ignore a chaos token after triggering other “When…” and “If…” abilities related to the revealing of that token. This meant that while you could ignore a chaos token’s modifier, you could not prevent a skull token from discarding a Baseball Bat (Core Set, 74), or dealing you one horror from Shrivelling (Core Set, 60). It also means that Lucky Dice could do effectively nothing against a treachery card such as Twist of Fate (The Dunwich Legacy, 93).

In order to make the card work according to its intended function, we decided we would have to change its triggering condition to “When” instead of “After.” However, doing so posed an interesting conundrum, as it allowed Lucky Dice to effectively circumvent its own downside. Changing one aspect of Lucky Dice forced us to change several other aspects of the card, but in the end we are left with a version that is crystal-clear without sacrificing any of its playability.

The new version reads: “When you reveal a non- chaos token, spend 2 resources: Ignore that chaos token and reveal another one to resolve. If that token has a  symbol, remove Lucky Dice from the game (cannot be ignored/canceled).” This version of Lucky Dice works as intended; it can be used to ignore almost all chaos tokens, but it is clear that it cannot ignore the token in any way, nor can its ability save it from being removed from the game if the  token is revealed.
We have also issued an errata to one of the resolutions for Blood on the Altar. This additional line of text won’t matter for many campaigns, but it ensures that investigators won’t get stuck when they flip to Act 1b of Undimensioned and Unseen.

In addition to these errata, we have introduced a few new rulings to ensure the long-term health of the game. For example, we clarified the order in which actions are “taken” or “lost” when an investigator has one or more “additional actions,” such as Daisy’s investigator ability. This is an advanced concept that was not covered in the Rules Reference, and is now mapped out for any eventualities that may arise in the future. We have also issued a ruling with regards to Wild skill icons. The rules, as written, do not expressly permit Wild icons to match other skills except during skill tests. For example, you would not discard Unexpected Courage (Core Set, 93) from your hand in order to avoid taking damage from a Passenger Car (Essex County Express, 167). However, we found that most players intuitively believe that Wild icons should be able to match in these instances. Sometimes, in cases like this, we believe it can be helpful to shift the rules just slightly in order to mirror players’ intuition or expectations.

The design team is confident that these updates and clarifications will improve each player’s understanding and enjoyment of Arkham Horror: The Card Game. We’re very excited for the future of the game, and we hope that you are too.

Thank you for playing!

          Thread: General Gaming:: Any interest in gaming near Winston-Salem, NC?   

by statman8

I'd be interested in a small group of gamers that would be interested in getting together on a regular basis near Winston-Salem, NC. I have too many games that need use. I'd particularly be interested in players that would be interested in delving into campaign games. I enjoy everything from euros to wargames and have a fairly extensive collection that would be available for play (if I can find them!).

My recent tastes are gravitating toward miniatures heavy games for example: Imperial Assault, Fireteam Zero, Chthulhu Wars, Shadows of Brimstone, Zombiecide, Run & Bones, Xia, Conan, Walking Dead, Gloomhaven, Sword & Sorcery (arriving today!) and so forth.

Anyone game? Message me.

          Thread: General Gaming:: Publishers of Communication Games ?   

by griobe

Hello !

I am from France and am helping some friend export their game - or I'm hoping so !
The game my friends have designed are "Communication Boxes", designed for couples to better communicate, or families, or social groups. They have been sold in France for a couple of years now and are working pretty well.

I am looking for a publisher in the US to license the product, but I have trouble finding a publisher that focuses on "Communication Games".
Do you have any in mind ?

For info, here is how the Couple's Communication Box works :
- dice is rolled to randomly pick a topic
- card is picked that corresponds to the topic
- the card is divided in 2, each one in the couple has his / her own half, which are identical

- the card always start with a mime or a little contest, ex : "Imitate him / her when she is at a party and someone extremely boring keeps talking to him / her". 30 secs (there is a sandglass), and then the best imitation, as decided with a consensus, wins a little prize
- then there are questions to be answered, each on his / her own card, silently. And then both share their responses.

Thank you very much for your help !

          Thread: General Gaming:: Gaming Dreams   

by aesthetocyst

I often have vivid dreams. And often those dreams are of games.

Imagined games. I don't recall ever dreaming of playing a 'real' game, one that exists physically here in the waking world.

Nevertheless these imagined games are usually amazingly detailed and vivid, and, of course, in my dreamworld they are completely engrossing. Sometimes the dreams go all inception, and flip back and forth between me playing the game, and my life being in the game.

The last game dream I had was two nights ago. My son and I were playing a Heroscape / area control / hex-and-counter mashup. Heroscape-ish in that both sides had multiple teams composed of a few fighters from various eras / genres. Hex-and-counter in that the pieces were all counters (no minis) and moving on a tesellated board of tiny spaces. Area control in that the spaces weren't hexes but (tiny) freeform areas and the sides had to maintain control of certain areas to spawn in their next team.

So my son was wiping me out. I was down to 1 team, a set of WWII-era recon GIs, zipping across the board in trusty ramshackle jeeps, he was chasing them with light mechs (so unfair). But i was faster and managed to get away (really crappy mechs...), until he spawned a new team which was a pair of Taliban fighters (the Taliban??? really?), a sniper and a mortar team, both hilariously OP. Each of them killed 1 of my 2 remaining units with 1 shot each.

I asked or a do over. And he did it again.

Then I woke up.

Anyone else gaming in there dreams? What games? Find any inspiration in there? And are you winning or losing in those dreams?

There are millions of players playing very old games like Go, Chess and Poker, games that people read books and practice to become better players. Some people spend their whole lives trying to master these games.

However, when a new game is released, even if it is a very good and complex game, people soon get tired of it. They ask for expansions in order to play it again.

Why do you think that this happens?

Qualcomm Launches Snapdragon 450 Chipset for Mid-Range Mobile Devices

Qualcomm has made the new Snapdragon 450 SoC official. The chipset, which is built for mid-range smartphones and tablets, is considered to be the first in its tier to use 14nm FinFET process.

The new Snapdragon 450 is said to have been designed to deliver major improvements in battery life, CPU and GPU performance, imaging, and LTE connectivity over its Snapdragon 435 predecessor.

One of the improvements is the power management, adding up to four hours of usage time as well as up to a 30-percent reduction in power when gaming. The Snapdragon 450 also features Quick Charge 3.0 support.

See also: Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 660 and 630 SoCs

Next up are the improvements in CPU and GPU speeds. Compared to its predecessor, the new chipset can deliver a 25-percent increase in compute performance with higher-performing octa-core ARM Cortex A53 CPU. In addition, the integrated Qualcomm Adreno 506 GPU can deliver a 25-percent increase in graphics performance.

Third on the line are the improvements in imaging. Among those in the Snapdragon 400 series, the Snapdragon 450 will be the first to support real-time bokeh effects. It will also now have support for dual camera setups at 13 megapixels each and single camera up to 21 megapixels.

Moreover, Qualcomm's newest chipset has the Snapdragon X9 LTE modem and supports USB 3.0. It also has support for Full HD display and Hexagon DSP.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 is expected to be available in mobile devices before the end of 2017.

It is easy to put together, had mine for about 6 months now and love it. I have a back problem, so nice to be able to switch it up from sitting and standing. Sitting it come to about 28 inches from the ground (sitting) and 4ft high (standing), so if you are 6 feet tall, this table is perfect for you! Very sturdy, mine rests 3 inches from a wall, so no big deal. I use this table as a workplace for gaming or as a work table. Love it. =)

          Thread: Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization:: Variants:: The Mao Zedong peaceful variant   

by esabatine

This is yet another peaceful variant.

The difference is that it is a little less peaceful than the other peaceful variants. Aggressions are still an important part of the game, just a little less important. The volume is turned down two clicks.

The premise is that when people complain about military being over-emphasized in the game (the New Story of Civilization version, I understand its been toned down a little from earlier versions), they are really complaining about the War on Culture war. If the military leader gets one WoC, he typically swings about 20 points from the culture leader to himself. Two WoCs mean upwards of 40 points, or the ability to take a lot of points each from two culture leaders. This often decides the game.

Furthermore, the War on Culture is the most reliable of the few comeback measures in the game. Really the only others are the Chaplin/ movies/ Hollywood combination, and good luck not getting hit with a War on Culture if you get that (but sometimes you can generate enough points to win anyway), or to get lucky with drawing and being able to seed exactly the right impacts, which as implied is pretty luck dependent. Of course, WoCs are also luck dependent, sometimes the military leader doesn't get them. Sometimes he gets two or three.

The other aggressions are fine. The two other wars, on tech and territory, and all the raids, armed interventions, plunders etc. are all good at tripping up your opponents and getting resources into your hands. They all have to be guarded against them. But none are game-winners like the War on Culture, you really have to get hit with several to be knocked out or to be able to use several to come out on top using the military route.

So in this variant, all the aggression cards stay in, except the war on culture. You can still win with military, its just more work.

However, just removing the War on Culture card is not that great an idea, because there are very few mechanisms for players who are behind to come back, and that is the main one. So in this variant the card stays in the game, but is changed. This is how it works.

The Mao Zedong Variant:

1. A player no longer plays Wars on Culture against other players. Instead a player plays a War on Culture on himself (mostly).

2. When a War on Culture is played, all of the player's choice of his production (rocks), food, civil actions, and/ or science is converted immediately into culture. The player gets the culture, but may not use any of what he converted that turn.

3. If a player playing a War on Culture chooses to covert production or food, the production and/ or food is not lost, but just unusable that turn and added back at the end of the turn, plus any additional food or rock produced that turn (with all the additional corruption that entails). If the player chooses to convert science or civil actions, those are lost permanently.

4. When a War on Culture is played, no other player except the player playing the event may produce culture when they take their next turn, except from events, aggressions (armed intervention) and Age III wonder bonuses. All culture that would otherwise be produced is permanently lost.

5. Wars on Culture are played during the political phase and take three military actions as before. If Gandhi is in play as a leader, the War on Culture takes six actions, a player who has Gandhi as a leader can still play a War on Culture, it just take six military actions.

It probably more thematic at this point to rename the War on Culture the "Cultural Revolution."

If playing this using Boardgaming Online, it would require some adjustment or annotation of various totals in several categories, but at least it would only be a factor in the last third of the game and not require that much bookkeeping.

The War on Culture is kept as a means to swing culture to yourself and away from your opponents. Not only that, but military actions are still important in being able to play this. The difference is that it no longer requires a big military build-up to use this.

          Thread: Star Wars: Destiny:: General:: I am starting to see the magnitude of the CCG Universe of Star Wars Destiny.   

by Strom40

Just this week I dipped my toe in the immense universe of Fantasy Flight's CCG game of Star Wars Destiny. I watched reviews when it launched last December and was intrigued by the mechanics and great art (I really like it!) but the unavailability left me on the sidelines.

Other than the very unpopular Conan CCG, I have never collected or played a CCG game before. I don't think the Conan CCG really counts as after I bought the 4 starter sets and the booster box I never saw another booster pack again as no retailer carried it. It's pretty easy to not buy a CCG when it's not available - which Star Wars Destiny fans can relate to from what I have read and heard about the initial launch.

Well, as of right now, the SW: Destiny game is going strong and readily available at every FLGS in my immediate area. Shevlves are full and booster and starter kits are looking really good on those shelves. I can't avoid it and decided to buy the two starter sets to try the game.

Other than the packaging, the components are very nice and the dice and cards are very satisfying to play, roll, read and hold your hands.

I love the card checklist and immediately photocopied it and started highlighting the cards I had in my collection. A total of one hundred and seventy four cards in the Awakening set. Gulp!

I needed some more cards. Off to the FLGS and -BAM! - 10 boosters later and I had my first three Legendary cards/dice. I was $60 bucks in and not even at 100 cards and barely less than 50% of the set. No Vader, Han Solo or Leia or Chewbacca or CP3O or R2D2 or any named character except for the starters.

Not being a CCG player, I'm just starting to realize the enormity of the immense CCG universe - it truly is impressive (and daunting) the scope of the cost and investment that is the Star Wars Destiny game. This is beyond $100 Kickstarters - Star Wars Destiny laughs at $150 Kickstarters. SWestiny is a boardgame killer. I have 200+ games but if I just want to collect Awakenings my gaming dollars can really only go to Destiny.

Man! What a mountain to climb - I never realized the scope and magnitude of CCG games. I heard and read the warnings but not until you start swinging that lightsaber - and love the game - does the pull of the dark side of gaming and the CCG universe evil influence reveal itself....

And this is just Awakenings...

Really cool game though.

And I really like highlighting a new card on the checklist...there's power I in that checklist. And the Dice are so cool! And it's Star Wars.

Curse you (and thanks for a great game) Fantasy Flight!

It was a lot easier with Conan...

          Review: 1754: Conquest – The French and Indian War:: Club Fantasci Review: 1754: Conquest - The French and Indian War   

by Moezilla


Publisher: Academy Games
Game Designer: Beau Beckett, Jeph Stahl
Players: 2-4
Playing Time: 60-120 minutes
Suggested Retail Price: $70



TRILOGY CONCLUSION

1754 – Conquest: The French and Indian War is the third and final title in the Birth of America series from Academy Games. The game carries on the same core game play of the first two games, 1812: The Invasion of Canada and 1775: Rebellion, making it very easy for gamers already familiar with the system to jump right in.

SEVEN YEARS OF HARD LUCK

1754 covers the Seven Year’s War, which ran from 1754 – 1763, and was fought between the French and British along the northern American colonies, to points west and into Canada. As with the other titles in the series, this is an area control game with randomly dictated turn orders and card play, for two to four players. Random turn ordering and being card driven are two mechanisms that I really enjoy in games. I find that they keep both the play and strategies fluid, and drive unexpected momentum swings.

Component and rule book quality are top-notch as expected, this is Academy Games after all, and they rarely disappoint. The game is rules light, clocking in at a mere three pages, with the balance of the book covering examples of play, card explanations, and historical background to the conflict. When you have an elegant design, wordy rules aren’t a necessity, and this is quite an elegant system.

The board gets pre-seeded with different colored cubes, representing the starting forces of all five factions in the game. The two main antagonists are composed of British regulars and colonials, taking on the French regulars and French Canadiens. The Native Americans make up the fifth faction, and act as free agents throughout the game.



The six Native Nations form a buffer between the existing French and British territories, and ally with whomever is in contact with them first. These alliances are fleeting, and last only as long as you stay with them. However, they are a powerful force to not be overlooked because they bolster your forces immediately, granting you the extra troops needed to take or protect critical control points, which in the end are everything.

Winning is a simple case of having the most control markers at game’s end, which comes at either the end of the eighth round, or can be triggered once all four sides have played the Truce card from their hand.

Truce cards are one of the twelve cards in each player’s deck, from which players always have a hand of three to work with. Eight of the cards handle movement, while four others are a mix of events with a historical flavor that benefits its faction. The cards are well balanced, having both matching and unique cards for either side sprinkled between the factions. When playing a four-player game, good communications and team work are essential in maximizing card play opportunities.


Player Board

Aside from the tried and true mechanics of the series proper, 1754 adds a couple of new tricks to the mix. The additions of Forts and Ports is fantastic and distinguishes this title with its own identity, adding new and interesting avenues to be explored through repeated plays.

Each side has three Forts under their control at the start, with another that can be added through card play. Forts add a defense die to combat, giving the defender a 50/50 chance of blocking one hit from the attacker. This is a minor change, but one that can have a major implications in combat, slowing the pace of the siege and really frustrating the attacker.

If your Fort defense isn’t faring well, you have the option of destroying it while withdrawing using the command die. This is an important point to keep in mind, you don’t want to just hand over a strong defensive position to your opponent at a critical juncture. Forts can and will change the tide of battle!



Ports are an incredibly critical feature in the game, this is where the French and British regulars receive reinforcements and can move freely across large sections of the map. While the colonial militia and French Canadiens have limited muster sites in home territory cities, French and British troops make the trek from Europe. So anchoring those port locations (pun intended) with a steady troop presence is key. Leave them open, and your opponent will choke off control of the area.

Along with their reinforcement importance, ports are also where you can ferry troops to and from, to launch amphibious assaults. Using any movement card, you can move from port to port, make landfall and an offensive ingress into your opponent’s territory. There are no water movement cards that limit you in this game, a very welcome and smart game change in my opinion.

To be successful in battle, you’ll need to optimize your forces with a mix of Regulars, militia and Native Americans to build a good dice pool. Although the Regulars have the stronger combat die, the militia can add up to three more and the Native Americans another pair, greatly increasing your odds. I like how the dice abstractly resolve the outcome of the battle. Sure, there’s some luck involved, as there always is in dice rolling, but there are different levels of luck in battle as well.

When using Native Americans, be sure to bring more than your opponent does to a battle to gain the die bonus. Not really having a dog in the fight, Indians will avoid fighting each other, and cancel each other out on a one-for-one basis.

Stepping back to the militia for a moment, it’s true that they have a greater chance of fleeing back to their homes when the battle gets tough, but don’t write them off too quickly. With an extra three dice, you have a greater chance of failure, but when successful, they can quickly whittle down your opponents armies. Letting them take hits first also protects your Regulars, yes, they are cannon fodder.


Native Alliance Card

There’s one last addition to touch on and it’s an interesting one, the Native Alliance expansion. This 15 card deck adds some interesting abilities and powers. The cards are drawn randomly, one per faction at the start of the game. They can grant extra control markers, if you have control of the specified area and have a Native cube in it with you. Or, can give you special abilities, such as the Mingo power. This ability blocks the defender from rolling a Fort die in combat, and that can be huge! It’s a fun little expansion that keeps things fresh and helps broaden the game nicely.

One minor niggle I had with the game was an absence of an overflow area for battles. Some territories are fairly tight on the map, and when those areas become points of contention, the cube count becomes unwieldy. Perhaps in future iterations of the system, a battle board could be used to make managing this a little easier. That way players won’t be ham fisting other cubes out of the way in neighboring spots. Yea, I’ve done that more than once.

Games move pretty quickly, generally lasting about 90 minutes. There is a lot of back and forth action, as territories change hands and strategies are adjusted based on turn order. The game has a nice historic feel, keeps things balanced and makes for a highly enjoyable gaming experience for any level and age of gamer.

WARGAMING MADE SIMPLE

Any game in this series is a perfect introduction for a new wargamer, or when trying convert a friend over to the dark side. Each has its own identity, and 1754 – Conquest: The French and Indian War is no exception. The introduction of forts and ports are both important aspects to securing and maintaining footholds in different regions, with water movement no longer limited to specific water movement only cards, things really open up. These new mechanisms expand an elegant system, giving it its own flavor and feel and makes it shine.

I don’t often say a game is a classic title, and while it may be a bit early to lay that title here, I do feel that 1754, and the whole BoA line are deserving of that moniker. These are games that will be played for years to come, because they are great gateway wargames that are easy to teach, play, are very fun, and make you want to keep coming back for more. This is a credit to the solid design work of Beau Beckett, Jeph Stahl, for creating a solid and versatile system.

Thanks to a concise and informative rule book coupled with intuitive play, 1754 is accessible to any audience. Everyone from families to grumpy old grognards will find this an engaging bit of quality entertainment, that even manages to sneak in a little history lesson. Well done once again Academy Games!

While the game is rules light, 1754 has enough layers of strategic depth to keep you coming back again and again. Most importantly, it’s a damn fun game, and one that really belongs on your shelf. Now pardon me, I need to go acquire 1812: The Invasion of Canada, so I can finally own all three games in this series.

          Review: Gang Rush Breakout:: Review #594 by Deskovehry: Gang Rush Breakout - War on a bridge   

by tadzi



You surely know all those gangster movies in which thieves run away from the police in a thrilling chase. But this time, on their way to success, gangs will become enemies. Getting across the bridge in one piece with most of stolen finances into your hiding place is main goal. Best thief gets a reward in the form of an adjutant’s position.

And one such bridge will welcome all the players who make it into world of board game Gang Rush Breakout, which was prepared for us by the pair of designers Galladur and Henri Pym. Everyone contributed with their part – the first one is author of the idea, which was then processed by the latter into shape of this game. And Ankama company took the whole idea and published it. Graphics were made by Rémi Farjaud and its a novelty for 2017.

Box has a square shape, but its size does not belong to those classic larger games. On the contrary, it is making its own way being a drop smaller and better to carry. On the lid, we see a really explosive event in which cars fly through the air and trays are getting empty in a split-second. But the game does not disappoint even under the lid. First of all, there is a game board, which consists of a bridge with five lanes. But it also includes a number of cardboard pieces that make it a real treat for the eye. Using them, players complete their gaming environment in which the bridge goes really up and down. And all this is dominated by a large (of course cardboard) construction.



But setup continues with other components. Before the first game, players assemble freight containers from a series of cartons, but also jumpers and above all round pointers. They will be split among the players, but first they have to choose each one of the classic old gangster cars. And it will also determine color of the pointer, which will allow the players not only to monitor speed of their car, but also show damage and symbol in there indicates special skill of that car. They put miniatures on the starting line to determine initial funding. Finally, on the sides, they line up bonus tokens and a set of dice.

The ranking of opponents will determine the order of the cars on the bridge for the first turn. Who is more ahead will start the main stage (in the case of a tie, whoever is standing more to the left). But the round starts by putting up new obstacles and this brings advantages to those, who are left behind at the moment. Players can then choose from five different obstacles (tiles on offer) and place them on any position on the bridge. The only limitation in the rules is that two identical pieces of hazard must never be adjacent.

But then the players will move in the main stage, one after another, as their cars are placed. The first one takes five dice and tries to get the most advantageous set of symbols. He has two rethrow options. Then the icons have to be used and, as a result, first repair or damage their car in the first place. According to this outcome, he turns his pointer so that six holes show one green dot less (or more), than before.



At the same time, this level also corresponds to number of hundreds of dollars the vehicle is able to carry. However, due to the tachometer symbol, the vehicle can also accelerate and player moves its hand one point to the right. In case of a damage rolled, banknote has been lost and should be left in the place, where car is standing.

It is speed, that determines how many spaces player can move his vehicle. These points can be used to move forward or sideways, depending only on the player himself. However to do this, it is necessary to spend not only point of movement but also two symbols of turning rolled on dice. Only one point is sufficient for moving in straight line. But cars always have to avoid obstacles that stand in their way.

In addition, each player also has weapons and can fire with them when the revolver symbol is shown. The bullet always moves forward only in one line and always reaches the first car at an unlimited distance. Gangster can shoot even more times and injure each opponent for one point, and thereby make them lose hundred dollars from their trunk. The shot can also destroy barrier or force the police to do an evasive maneuver.



For their finances in front of themselves (in the form of small cards), players can buy bonuses from the offer. For each unused dice, they collect new hundred dollars if they have space to store them. However, income can also come from positions where it was left by others. On the road the cars can also hurt themselves or against the obstacles around. And as a result, it loses points and dollars with it.

Much more interesting options are special maneuvers, which can be a reaction to unexpected events. Players can stop or even turn their car around. And then they will surely welcome action to return the car in the right direction using handbrake. But this uses even more steering wheel symbols from dice. In addition, a stopped car can spend money and repair itself. On the player’s route, ramps can also be used by drivers to jump. As a result of the impact, their car may (decided by luck) suffer some damage.

Game ends, when one of the cars crosses the finish line and all other players have had opportunity to move their vehicles one more time. They will receive a reward for their position in the race, but it may not be enough to win. Players add up money left in trunk of their machines. Only the one who has the most money becomes the winner. But that does not apply to last competitor in order, who instead earned an unpopular one-way ticket to Alaska from the Mafia boss.



Gang Rush Breakout is a gangster game with everything in it. But its not a soulless shooter or a battle full of betrayal. It’s a purebred race full of shooting, chase, cops, and money. Somewhat in the style of Mafia II or similar computer games.

The theme is really great and perfectly suited to the gameplay. The game is not a dry and uninteresting tactic attempt but is full of unimaginable moments, twists and conflicts with other rivals. This is because the cars are not simply racing on an empty track, but there are many collisions between obstacles and reduced maneuvering space everywhere.

The bridge is always free space at the beginning of the game and is filled only as the game progresses. And that creates differences between each match. The offer of obstacles and bonuses is always different and dice are making another variations. Rear cars have always a large weapon at their disposal in the form of barrier placement (every turn), that their rivals in the lead must avoid or crawl through.



It is these gangster options that are, however, the essential element of the gameplay. Every failure means loss of some banknotes that are then just lying on the bridge and waiting for the one who picks them up first. And shooting belongs to the daily bread of every right criminal, so bullets will not be only some emergency.

Players are clearly forced into conflict because target bonus simply is not enough. Everything, however, is controlled by dice and their successes or, on the contrary, failures. Fortunately, it’s not all that bad, because players have the ability to reroll their results and at least partially transform symbols into their own image.

It is clear that the track requires more cars on the bridge. In the minimum of three, the battle is far from interesting. The more cars, the more obstacles. But it also raises the unpredictability that can spoil the game for some players.



What, on the other hand, is great? We are talking about processing. The game looks fantastic on the table and it’s not just the toy cars but the overall environment. And yet we have a single complaint that is a bit wasteful – the banknotes are so terribly small and thin that manipulation with them is really unpleasant. Due to the amount of cardboard material in the game, it’s surprising what lead the game publishers to include such incompatible content.

Gang Rush Breakout is a very interesting gangster game. Players will compete in non-traditional way on a bridge, in cars, with weapons in their hands. But at the same time, they struggle not only with each other, but also with luck of dice, and in particular with dirty banknotes, which make their lives uncomfortable. This all makes Gang Rush Breakout just the right entertainment for many.

          Review: Puerto Rico:: Still the Best Role Selection Game   

by drunkenKOALA

I first played Puerto Rico in the summer of 2007. In the ten years since then, many games have passed through the rankings. I recall the bgg top ten consisted of games like El Grande, Tigris and Euphrates, Princes of Florence, Power Grid, Caylus, and sitting atop that list was Puerto Rico.

Looking at the rankings now, it’s actually not that different, in a way. The top ten are almost exclusively thematic games now, but in terms of traditional euros, Puerto Rico is still very much at the top of that list (12th overall as of 2017). Only Castles of Burgundy is higher, and Terra Mystica if it qualifies as an euro.

In spite of the recent trend toward heavier games, I actually believe Puerto Rico would be a hit if it came out today. Judging things with rose-tinted nostalgia is a common phenomenon. As much as I hate to admit it, the Chicago Bulls from the nineties would probably have a hard time beating the Warriors today (playing with today’s NBA rules). However, in the fifteen years since Puerto Rico came out, no game has used its role selection mechanism better, more simply, and in such a well Crafted game structure.



The game centers around six roles and a round structure. Each round, starting with the Governor, players take turns selecting one of the six roles. When a player selects a role, he gets a benefit specific to that role, and then going clock-wise (starting with the player who selected the role), everyone can perform the action associated with that role. For example, if Gina selects the Builder role, she gets to build one building at one reduced doubloon, and then the rest of the players get to build buildings in clockwise order. If Gina was the Governor, then proceeding clock-wise and after everyone has built a building (or passed on the opportunity to do so), the next player selects a role. This continues until all players have selected a role, and this process makes up a round. When the round is over, the Governor card is passed to the next player in clock-wise order, and a new round begins.

The actions associated with the respective roles themselves are simple enough, and are typical for an old resource management game. The set up roles include the Settler, the Builder, and the Mayor. The Settler lets players pick a plantation. The Builder lets players build a building, including factories. The Mayor lets players put workers on the aforementioned plantations and factories. Then the time for harvest, and the most important and controversial role in the game: the Craftsman produces goods for players, if they have a manned plantation AND a corresponding manned factory. Once equipped with barrels of goods, players can cash them in for doubloons via the Trader, or ship them for victory points via the Captain.



What I have described is an ordinary flowchart. Design-wise, it synergizes especially well with the round structure mentioned two paragraphs above. Because different players are in different stages of manning their buildings and plantations, are differently prepared for production, and are differently able to ship for victory points or trade for doubloons, each of the roles has a different value for different players at different times. Not only should a player be careful in the roles they select, they must also angle to piggy back on other players’ potential moves. Central to gameplay are anticipation, manipulation, and strategical positioning.

Moreover, the turn order itself allows for twists and turns, especially in the three-player game. I visualize my actions in Puerto Rico as a sequence of turns:

CBCACABAB

Looking at player C’s turn, there is a phase wherein he selects three roles in the span of five turns! That phase is followed by a period wherein the other players take four turns in a row! I usually plan out my entire sequence at a time, which means looking ahead a round or two.

As player C, this means I have three turns in the above sequence, and I am especially vulnerable after taking my third action in that sequence. The “first two turns” are where I can “attack.” The “third” turn is where I either finish my attack, or set up a “defense,” perhaps taking a null Captain with a coin on it, Mayor up to prepare for production, Building a factory to catch onto the next Mayor selection, etc. Do not start something aggressive on the third turn!



Few things are more vulnerable (or aggressive) in Puerto Rico than taking the Craftsman role. In fact, so much so that experienced players, when teaching the game, often tell new players to refrain from picking that role, at all costs. However, I think that is bad advice, because the only thing worse than taking the Craftsman at the wrong time, is not taking the Craftsman at the right time.

Taking the Craftsman on the “third” turn is almost always a bad idea. Taking the Craftsman every sequence is often a bad idea as well. However, taking it at the right time on the “first” or “second” turn can be very important, or even necessary. Crafting on the first turn, for example, lets player B to Trade/Ship, and then you to Ship/Trade. Similarly, crafting on the second turn allows player A and you to Ship and Trade. You NEED to take advantage of this quirk in the sequence and take Craftsman!

This is also where I have another disagreement with a commonly shared knowledge about Puerto Rico, that a newbie’s inability to make the right moves benefit the player to his left. Looking at the sequence, player C has almost equal opportunity to block player B as he does player A. Specifically, the sequence starts out with CBC (opportunity to Craft at expense of player A), continues with CAC (opportunity to Craft at expense of player B), and ends with CABAB (where you should almost never Craft). So the chances of aggression against the other two players are basically fifty-fifty, and I don’t worry too much about seating in a three-player game.

In a three-player game, the effect which the role selection and round structure have on strategy is a unique and irreplaceable gaming experience. Granted, I can take or leave four-player, and especially five-player, Puerto Rico, but three-player Puerto Rico is still one of the best games ever designed, even in the year 2017.


          Review: Steam Park: Play Dirty:: Gaming Bits: Steam Park: Play Dirty Expansion Review   

by MillicanDarque


Steam Park: Play Dirty is an expansion for Steam Park by Lorenzo Silva and Federico Latini, published by IELLO. It is for 2-5 players. This is a modular expansion that allows players to not only add a 5th player to the game, but it also allows them to add lots of new game mechanics. These mechanics can be added a little at a time or all at once. It's up to the players.

For more information on the base game, please check out the link below.

Before going into what this new expansion adds in forms of game play, let me give you a quick overview of how the original game is played. Each player starts off with some land for their park to begin building on along with some dice to roll. Players will simultaneously begin rolling dice. Players set aside any dice they want to keep on their pig board. As soon as they have all 6 dice on their pig board, they can grab the best turn order card available. For the slowest player, they get a penalty of adding dirt to their park. Players will then take dirt tokens for each dirt symbol rolled on their dice as well as for any visitors they have in their park. Once players have collected their dirt, they're able to build rides, build stands, clean dirt, expand the park, play bonus cards and attract visitors. Each ride or stand cost a die with the corresponding symbol. The bigger rides cost more dice with the correct symbol. Stands give special abilities that can be used throughout the game. A broom symbol allows the player to remove 2 dirt from their park. Any symbol can be used to increase the size of the player's park. Bonus cards can be played for 1 die each with the correct symbol, while visitors are a bit different. A die with a visitor on it, allows the player to place their choice of visitor color into the bag, shuffle it all up and then draw a visitor from it. If there's a corresponding ride in the player's park that has room on it, they can place the visitor on the ride. If not, the visitor returns to the pool of visitors. Once each player has resolved each of their dice, they will then receive money for each visitor they have on their rides. Players draw up to their hand size in bonus cards and replace the turn order tokens. A new round will then begin. The game continues until the end of the 6th turn. Players count up the dirt tokens in their park and check the dirt track to see how much money they lose. Players then add up their remaining money and the player with the most money is the winner.

Now with all that in mind, let's dive into this expansion. First off, there are now enough parts to be able to play with 5 players. This expansion includes a set of 5 white dice, pig board and starting ground tile. Players should also add the 4th player turn order token from this expansion with the ones from the base game. It should be noted that when playing with 5 players, there are only 5 turns, not 6 like in the base game.

On top of the 5th player, the game also provides several new mechanics. First off there are the Stingy Visitors. These are wild visitors that are placed in the visitor's pool and can only be added to the bag if at least one of the starting color of visitors is no longer available. When one of these visitors is drawn from the bag, they're placed on any ride, regardless of color. When earning money these visitors only provide 2 Denari instead of the normal 3. However, they don't gain dirt tokens either. It should be noted that although these visitors can be placed on any color ride, they are their own color and will not count towards any bonus card effects.

Next there are new Ride Extensions. These are a lot like the rides themself and cost 1 hammer and wrench die for each space they have. However these can not be built by themselves. They must be attached to an existing ride. Rides can only have 1 extension attached to it. Any color visitor can be placed on an extension when attracting visitors. During the income phase, any visitors that don't correspond with the color of the ride extension are placed back into the pool. When an extension is filled with visitors that are the same color as the ride it is attached to and/or wild visitors, the players suffers a penalty. Golden extensions cause the player to lose 2 danari for each space of the extension. Rusty extensions cause the player to gain 2 dirt tokens for each space of the extension. It should be noted that while these extensions are attached to a ride, they are a part of the ride, but still maintain their own color, not that of the ride. They will not count towards any bonus card effects.

Another new mechanic is the park directors. One of these can be chosen or randomly decided upon at the beginning of the game. Each one has a unique ability that changes some of the basic rules throughout the entire game. The sweeper allows a player to discard half their dirt tokens for each 2 broom symbols they spend, yet a single broom has no effect. The gambler allows a player to place a bonus card face down beneath the tile when they play a bonus card. They will then gain denari equal to the round of the game. At the end of the game the player that can best fulfill each card gains the denari for it. The barker allows the player to place a visitor of the wrong color onto the tile. When attracting visitors, the player can take visitors from the barker tile instead of pulling from the bag. However they gain a dirt token for each visitor taken this way. The planner allows the player to only roll 1 time. They must then place their dice one at a time onto their pig board, changing it to whatever side they wish. The architect allows the player to build rides and stands adjacent to rides and stands of any color. The player also gains 2 dirt token whenever they buy a new ground tile. The tycoon allows the players to each start with 10 denari. However during the roll phase, players secretly bet an amount of denari. They must then reveal their bets and the player that bet the highest, discards the money they bet and steals a die from the player that bet the least. The player that bet the least is allowed to keep their money, however the other players have to discard half their bet.

Yet another new mechanic is the espionage dice. This mechanic gives the player 4 denari and an espionage dice at the beginning of the game. Players roll this new dice along with their regular dice just like normal. Dice can still be placed onto the pig board to lock in the abilities just like normal. The same is true with the espionage dice. However it can't be influenced by the effects of stands and it can't be counted towards objectives on a bonus card. For it to be able to be used during the action phase, the player has to pay for it by discarding 4 denari at the end of the roll phase. However the player is able to pay 1 less denari for each white die with the same action on it on the pig board of the player to their right. Players can choose not to pay for the die if it has a dirt symbol on it. However they won't be able to use it's action then. Players are still only allowed to perform each action only once per turn. The espionage die may be used in conjunction with the regular white dice.

The final mechanic that this expansion provides is the new stands. There are 5 new stand types included. Players can either choose or randomly draw 5 stands from the 10 stand types by using the reference tiles included in this expansion. The remaining stands are returned to the box. The 5 new stands are the fountain, hall of mirrors, office, shooting gallery and incinerator. The fountain allows a player to spend 2 denari to discard 2 dirt tokens at the end of their action phase. The hall of mirrors can be built adjacent to another stand, allowing it to copy that stands ability. However only 1 hall of mirrors may be attached to each kind of stand. The office increases the number of bonus cards the player is allowed to hold in their hand by 1. It also counts a die face of 1 shovel as 2 shovels instead, allowing them to play more bonus cards. The shooting gallery allows the player to reroll 1 die on their pig board during their action phase. For each reroll, the player gains 1 denari. However if they roll a blank face, they gain 2 denari instead. It should be noted though that if the symbol rolled is for an action that the player has already performed that turn, they may not perform it again. The incinerator awards a player with 2 denari if they have the most dirt during the income phase. Of course, just like with the original game, these abilities are increased if the player has more of the same type of stand.



COMPONENTS
Just like with the original game, this expansion is full of quirky and fun looking pieces. Each one captures the theme and look of the original game quite well. The different ride extensions are very similarly designed apart from the actual artwork on the sides. The extra components for the 5th player are pretty much the same exact pieces as are included with the base game. The same is true of the extra bank notes that are included. The new stingy visitors are dark grey but are the same wooden shape as the original visitors. The espionage dice are similar to the original dice except that they are black instead of white. The stands are similarly designed with new artwork for the new stand types. What's completely new looking is the park director tiles and the stand reference tiles. The park directors are all nice and big and look absolutely great. I love the art on each of these. They really sell the theme of the game in a big way for me. Each one also references the special ability that they have on the tile. These are awesome and are my favorite pieces of the expansion. The stand reference tiles are great for randomly choosing which stands to use during the game. They can be shuffled just like cards and can then be placed out on the table to be used as a reference for the abilities of each stand in play. Let's be honest, I love the original game and all it's quirky and fun theme. This expansion fall right in line with that look and gives you even more of that goodness. I love the new designs and all the new pieces.

RULEBOOK
The rulebook for this expansion look really nice. It has a lot of the same humor and style as that of the original rulebook. There's plenty of great looking pictures throughout the book. The rules are all laid out quite well and in such a way that players can pick and choose which modules that they'd like to use when they play. It's very simple to read and understand. It's actually one of the most fun rulebooks to read. I love the quirky humor throughout the book. Each new piece is covered in great detail so that there should be no problems when playing. Overall I love the look and the design of the rulebook. It's really great fun to read and it does a nice job of covering the rules too.

GAMEPLAY
I have always enjoyed theme parks. I loved playing Roller Coaster Tycoon on the computer and building my own park. It's no surprise then that I really enjoy Steam Park. It's a lot of fun building rides and expanding your park. It reminds me a lot of those days of playing Roller Coaster Tycoon. This expansion adds even more thrills and excitement to the original game. It's nice to have the added components to be able to play with 5 players. Normally I don't have that many players but it's still nice to have them anyway. The new stingy visitors are fun, however they don't show up near as often as I'd like them to. It takes a complete run on a color before they can even start to be pulled from the bag. The ride extensions are great. They add a lot of freedom when drawing visitors from the bag, as you don't have to worry about matching everything up completely. The park directors are my absolute favorite part of the expansion. I love how each one changes the gameplay up simply by changing the director for that game. The espionage dice take a little more work to use them efficiently, which can be a bit of a problem for the younger players. They're still great to use with the game and I like how they change things up a bit. The new stands, like the park directors, are also great. I especially like the reference tiles. They add a lot more depth when combined into the game. Overall I like the new additions. It does tend to make things a bit more gamer oriented and a little less family but there's still plenty of things that can be used with the family for them to enjoy as well. I would highly recommend this expansion, especially if you're looking for a bit more challenge to the regular game.

OVERALL
Steam Park: Play Dirty is an expansion for Steam Park that adds a lot of new content that may be added a little at a time or all at once. The expansion doesn't really add any additional play time. Most game sessions still last around an hour. The artwork and components all share the same stylized look and feel of the original game. I love the look and humor of the rulebook. It's rare when the rules for a game can make you laugh. All the different modules add different levels of gameplay which can make things more challenging and a bit more gamer and a little less family oriented. I will say that a few of the modules are simple enough and don't get too out there to still be enjoyed with the family though. My favorite parts are the park directors and new stands. Fans of Steam Park will want to add this to their game, especially if they're looking for a bit more of a challenge. I think this is a must have addition. I really enjoy it. I would highly recommend the expansion. Just like a roller coaster, this one is exciting.

          India Smart Cities Mission shows IoT potential for improving quality of life at vast scale   
The next BriefingsDirect Voice of the Customer Internet-of-Things (IoT) transformation discussion examines the potential impact and improvement of low-power edge computing benefits on rapidly modernizing cities.

These so-called smart city initiatives are exploiting open, wide area networking (WAN) technologies to make urban life richer in services, safer, and far more responsive to residences’ needs. We will now learn how such pervasively connected and data-driven IoT architectures are helping cities in India vastly improve the quality of life there.

Listen to the podcast. Find it on iTunes. Get the mobile app. Read a full transcript or download a copy.

Here to share how communication service providers have become agents of digital urban transformation are VS Shridhar, Senior Vice President and Head of the Internet-of-Things Business Unit at Tata Communications in Chennai area, India, and Nigel Upton, General Manager of the Universal IoT Platform and Global Connectivity Platform and Communications Solutions Business at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

Here are some excerpts:

Gardner: Tell us about India’s Smart Cities mission. What are you up to and how are these new technologies coming to bear on improving urban quality of life?

Shridhar: The government is clearly focusing on Smart Cities as part of their urbanization plan, as they believe Smart Cities will not only improve the quality of living, but also generate employment, and take the whole country forward in terms of technologically embracing and improving the quality of life.

So with that in mind, the Government of India has launched 100 Smart Cities initiatives. It’s quite interesting because each of the cities that aspire to belong had to make a plan and their own strategy around how they are going to evolve and how they are going to execute it, present it, and get selected. There was a proper selection process.

Many of the cities made it, and of course some of them didn’t make it. Interestingly, some of the cities that didn’t make it are developing their own plans.

There is lot of excitement and curiosity as well as action in the Smart Cities project. Admittedly, it’s a slow process, it’s not something that you can do at the blink of the eye, and Rome wasn’t built overnight, but I definitely see a lot of progress.

Gardner:Nigel, it seems that the timing for this is auspicious, given that there are some foundational technologies that are now available at very low cost compared to the past, and that have much more of a pervasive opportunity to gather information and make a two-way street, if you will, between the edge and central administration. How is the technology evolution synching up with these Smart Cities initiatives in India?

Upton:I am not sure whether it’s timing or luck, or whatever it happens to be, but adoption of the digitization of city infrastructure and services is to some extent driven by economics. While I like to tease my colleagues in India about their sensitivity to price, the truth of the matter is that the economics of digitization -- and therefore IoT in smart cities -- needs to be at the right price, depending on where it is in the world, and India has some very specific price points to hit. That will drive the rate of adoption.

And so, we're very encouraged that innovation is continuing to drive price points down to the point that mass adoption can then be taken up, and the benefits realized to a much more broad spectrum of the population. Working with Tata Communications has really helped HPE understand this and continue to evolve as technology and be part of the partner ecosystem because it does take a village to raise an IoT smart city. You need a lot of partners to make this happen, and that combination of partnership, willingness to work together and driving the economic price points to the point of adoption has been absolutely critical in getting us to where we are today.

Balanced Bandwidth

Gardner:Shridhar, we have some very important optimization opportunities around things like street lighting, waste removal, public safety, water quality; of course, the pervasive need for traffic and parking, monitoring and improvement.

How do things like a low-power specification Internet and network gateways and low-power WANs (LPWANs) create a new foundation technically to improve these services? How do we connect the services and the technology for an improved outcome?

Shridhar:If you look at human interaction to the Internet, we have a lot of technology coming our way. We used to have 2G, that has moved to 3G and to 4G, and that is a lot of bandwidth coming our way. We would like to have a tremendous amount of access and bandwidth speeds and so on, right?

Shridhar
So the human interaction and experience is improving vastly, given the networks that are growing. On the machine-to-machine (M2M) side, it’s going to be different. They don’t need oodles of bandwidth. About 80 to 90 percent of all machine interactions are going to be very, very low bandwidth – and, of course, low power. I will come to the low power in a moment, but it’s going to be very low bandwidth requirement.

In order to switch off a streetlight, how much bandwidth do you actually require? Or, in order to sense temperature or air quality or water and water quality, how much bandwidth do you actually require?

When you ask these questions, you get an answer that the machines don’t require that much bandwidth. More importantly, when there are millions -- or possibly billions -- of devices to be deployed in the years to come, how are you going to service a piece of equipment that is telling a streetlight to switch on and switch off if the battery runs out?

Machines are different from humans in terms of interactions. When we deploy machines that require low bandwidth and low power consumption, a battery can enable such a machine to communicate for years.

Aside from heavy video streaming applications or constant security monitoring, where low-bandwidth, low-power technology doesn’t work, the majority of the cases are all about low bandwidth and low power. And these machines can communicate with the quality of service that is required.

When it communicates, the network has to be available. You then need to establish a network that is highly available, which consumes very little power and provides the right amount of bandwidth. So studies show that less than 50 kbps connectivity should suffice for the majority of these requirements.

Now the machine interaction also means that you collect all of them into a platform and basically act on them. It's not about just sensing it, it's measuring it, analyzing it, and acting on it.

Low-power to the people

So the whole stack consists not just of connectivity alone. It’s LPWAN technology that is emerging now and is becoming a de facto standard as more-and-more countries start embracing it.

At Tata Communications we have embraced the LPWAN technology from the LoRa Alliance, a consortium of more than 400 partners who have gotten together and are driving standards. We are creating this network over the next 18 to 24 months across India. We have made these networks available right now in four cities. By the end of the year, it will be many more cities -- almost 60 cities across India by March 2018.

Gardner: Nigel, how do you see the opportunity, the market, for a standard architecture around this sort of low-power, low-bandwidth network? This is a proof of concept in India, but what's the potential here for taking this even further? Is this something that has global potential?
IoT Solutions for Communications Service Providers and Enterprises from HPE
Learn More
Upton: The global potential is undoubtedly there, and there is an additional element that we didn't talk about which is that not all devices require the same amount of bandwidth. So we have talked about video surveillance requiring higher bandwidth, we have talked about devices that have low-power bandwidth and will essentially be created once and forgotten when expected to last 5 or 10 years.

Upton
We also need to add in the aspect of security, and that really gave HPE and Tata the common ground of understanding that the world is made up of a variety of network requirements, some of which will be met by LPWAN, some of which will require more bandwidth, maybe as high as 5G.

The real advantage of being able to use a common architecture to be able to take the data from these devices is the idea of having things like a common management, common security, and a common data model so that you really have the power of being able to take information, take data from all of these different types of devices and pull it into a common platform that is based on a standard.

In our case, we selected the oneM2M standard, it’s the best standard available to be able to build that common data model and that's the reason why we deployed the oneM2M model within the universal IoT platform to get that consistency no matter what type of device over no matter what type of network.

Gardner: It certainly sounds like this is an unprecedented opportunity to gather insight and analysis into areas that you just really couldn't have measured before. So going back to the economics of this, Shridhar, have you had any opportunity through these pilot projects in such cities as Jamshedpur to demonstrate a return on investment, perhaps on street lighting, perhaps on quality of utilization and efficiency? Is there a strong financial incentive to do this once the initial hurdle of upfront costs is met?

Data-driven cost reduction lights up India

Unless the customer sees that there is a scope for either reducing the cost or increasing the customer experience, they are not going to buy these kinds of solutions.
Shridhar: Unless the customer sees that there is a scope for either reducing the cost or increasing the customer experience, they are not going to buy these kinds of solutions. So if you look at how things have been progressing, I will give you a few examples of how the costs have started constructing and playing out. One of course is to have devices, meeting at certain price point, we talked about how in India -- we talked that Nigel was remarking how constant still this Indian market is, but it’s important, once we delivered to a certain cost, we believe we can now deliver globally to scale. That’s very important, so if we build something in India it would deliver to the global market as well.

The streetlight example, let’s take that specifically and see what kind of benefits it would give. When a streetlight operates for about 12 hours a day, it costs about Rs.12, which is about $0.15, but when you start optimizing it and say, okay, this is a streetlight that is supported currently on halogen and you move it to LED, it brings a little bit of cost saving, in some cases significant as well. India is going through an LED revolution as you may have read in the newspapers, those streetlights are being converted, and that’s one distinct cost advantage.

Now they are looking and driving, let’s say, the usage and the electricity bills even lower by optimizing it. Let’s say you sync it with the astronomical clock, that 6:30 in the evening it comes up and let’s say 6:30 in the morning it shuts down linking to the astronomical clock because now you are connecting this controller to the Internet.

The second thing that you would do is during busy hours keep it at the brightest, let’s say between 7:00 and 10:00, you keep it at the brightest and after that you start minimizing it. You can control it down in 10 percent increments.

The point I am making is, you basically deliver intensity of light to the kind of requirement that you have. If it is busy, or if there is nobody on the street, or if there is a safety requirement -- a sensor will trigger up a series of lights, and so on.

So your ability to play around with just having streetlight being delivered to the requirement is so high that it brings down total cost. While I was telling you about $0.15 that you would spend per streetlight, that could be brought down to $0.05. So that’s the kind of advantage by better controlling the streetlights. The business case builds up, and a customer can save 60 to 70 percent just by doing this. Obviously, then the business case stands out.

The question that you are asking is an interesting one because each of the applications has its own way of returning the investment back, while the optimization of resources is being done. There is also a collateral positive benefit by saving the environment. So not only do I gain a business savings and business optimization, but I also pass on a general, bigger message of a green environment. Environment and safety are the two biggest benefits of implementing this and it would really appeal to our customers.

Gardner:It’s always great to put hard economic metrics on these things, but Shridhar just mentioned safety. Even when you can't measure in direct economics, it's invaluable when you can bring a higher degree of safety to an urban environment.

It opens up for more foot traffic, which can lead to greater economic development, which can then provide more tax revenue. It seems to me that there is a multiplier effect when you have this sort of intelligent urban landscape that creates a cascading set of benefits: the more data, the more efficiency; the more efficiency, the more economic development; the more revenue, the more data and so on. So tell us a little bit about this ongoing multiplier and virtuous adoption benefit when you go to intelligent urban environments?

Quality of life, under control

Upton:Yes, also it’s important to note that it differs almost by country to country and almost within region to region within countries. The interesting challenge with smart cities is that often you're dealing with elected officials rather than hard-nosed businessman who are only interested in the financial return. And it's because you're dealing with politicians and they are therefore representing the citizens in their area, either their city or their town or their region, their priorities are not always the same.

There is quite a variation of one of the particular challenges, particular social challenges as well as the particular quality of life challenges in each of the areas that they work in. So things like personal safety are a very big deal in some regions. I am currently in Tokyo and here there is much more concern around quality of life and mobility with a rapidly aging population and their challenges are somewhat different.
IoT Solutions for Communications Service Providers and Enterprises from HPE

But in India, the set of opportunities and challenges that are set out, they are in that combination of economic as well as social, and if you solve them and you essentially give citizens more peace of mind, more ability to be able to move freely, to be able to take part in the economic interaction within that area, then undoubtedly that leads to greater growth, but it is worth bearing in mind that it does vary almost city by city and region by region.

Gardner:Shridhar, do you have any other input into a cascading ongoing set of benefits when you get more data, more network opportunity. I guess I am trying to understand for a longer-term objective that being intelligent and data-driven has an ongoing set of benefits, what might those be? How can this be a long-term data and analytics treasure trove when you think about it in terms of how to provide better urban experiences?

Home/work help

Shridhar:From our perspective, when we looked at the customer benefits there is a huge amount of focus around the smart cities and how smart cities are benefiting from a network. If you look at the enterprise customers, they are also looking at safety, which is an overlapping application that a smart city would have.

So the enterprise wants to provide safety to its workers, for example, in mines or in difficult terrains, environments where they are focusing on helping them. Or women’s safety, which is as you know in India is a big thing as well -- how do you provide a device which is not very obvious and it gives the women all the safety that is there.

So all this in some form is providing data. One of the things that comes to my mind when you ask about how data-driven resources can be and what kind of quality it would give is if you action your mind to some of the customer services devices, there could be applications or let’s say a housewife could have a multiple button kind of a device where she can order a service.

Depending on the service she presses and an aggregate of households across India, you would know the trends and direction of a certain service, and mind you, it could be as simple as a three-button device which says Service A, Service B, Service C, and it could be a consumer service that gets extended to a particular household that we sell it as a service.

So you could get lots of trends and patterns that are emerging from that, and we believe that the customer experience is going to change, because no longer is a customer going to retain in his mind what kind of phone numbers or your, let's say, apps and all to order, you give them the convenience of just a button-press service. That immediately comes to my mind.

Feedback fosters change

The second one is in terms of feedback. You use the same three-button service to say, how well have you used utility -- or rather how -- what kind of quality of service that you rate multiple utilities that you are using, and there is toilet revolution in India. For example, you put these buttons out there, they will tell you at any given point of time what’s the user satisfaction and so on.

So these are all data that is getting gathered and I believe that while it is early days for us to go on and put out analytics and give you distinct kind of benefits that are there, but some of the things that customers are already looking at is which geographies, which segment, who are my biggest -- profile of the customers using this and so on. That kind of information is going to come out very, very distinctly.

The Smart Cities is all about experience. The enterprises are now looking at the data that is coming out and seeing how they can use it to better segment, and provide better customer experience which would obviously mean both adding to their top line as well as helping them manage their bottom line. So it's beyond safety, it's getting into the customer experience – the realm of managing customer experience.

Gardner:From a go-to-market perspective, or a go-to-city’s perspective, these are very complex undertakings, lots of moving parts, lots of different technologies and standards. How are Tata and HPE are coming together -- along with other service providers, Pointnextfor example? How do you put this into a package that can then actually be managed and put in place? How do we make this appealing not only in terms of its potential but being actionable as well when it comes to different cities and regions?

Upton:The concept of Smart Cities has been around for a while and various governments around the world have pumped money into their cities over an extended period of time.
We now have the infrastructure in place, we have the price points and we have IoT becoming mainstream.

As usual, these things always take more time than you think, and I do not believe today that we have a technology challenge on our hands. We have much more of a business model challenge. Being able to deploy technology to be able to bring benefits to citizens, I think that is finally getting to the point where it is much better understood where innovation of the device level, whether it's streetlights, whether it's the ability to measure water quality, sound quality, humidity, all of these metrics that we have available to us now. There has been very rapid innovation at that device level and at the economics of how to produce them, at a price that will enable widespread deployment.

All that has been happening rapidly over the last few years getting us to the point where we now have the infrastructure in place, we have the price points in place, and we have IoT becoming mainstream enough that it is entering into the manufacturing process of all sorts of different devices, as I said, ranging from streetlights to personal security devices through to track and trace devices that are built into the manufacturing process of goods.
That is now reaching mainstream and we are now able to take advantage of this massive data that’s now being produced to be able to produce even more efficient and smarter cities, and make them safer places for our citizens.

Gardner:Last word to you, Shridhar. If people wanted to learn more about the pilot proof of concept (PoC) that you are doing there at Jamshedpur and other cities, through the Smart Cities Mission, where might they go, are there any resources, how would you provide more information to those interested in pursuing more of these technologies?

Pilot projects take flight

Shridhar:I would be very happy to help them look at the PoCs that we are doing. I would classify the PoCs that we are doing is as far as safety is concerned, we talked of energy management in one big bucket that is there, then the customer service I spoke about, the fourth one I would say is more on the utility side. Gas and water are two big applications where customers are looking at these PoCs very seriously.

And there is very one interesting application in that one customer wanted for pest control, where he wanted his mouse traps to have sensors so that they will at any point of time know if there is a rat trap at all, which I thought was a very interesting thing.

There are multiple streams that we have, we have done multiple PoCs, we will be very happy as Tata Communications team [to provide more information], and the HPE folks are in touch with us.

You could write to us, to me in particular for some period of time. We are also putting information on our website. We have marketing collateral, which describes this. We will do some of the joint workshops with HPE as well.

So there are multiple ways to reach us, and one of the best ways obviously is through our website. We are always there to provide more important help, and we believe that we can’t do it all alone; it’s about the ecosystem getting to know and getting to work on it.

While we have partners like HPE on the platform level, we also have partners such as Semtech, who established Center of Excellence in Mumbai along with us. So the access to the ecosystem from HPE side as well as our other partners is available, and we are happy to work and co-create the solutions going forward.

Description:

Beyond Badr: Episode 0, The Comic Series.

The entire team at Northern World Entertainment Software Inc. sincerely thanks you for visiting our app page.

We have endeavored to bring a new medium of entertainment to you to portray the rise of the Islamic Golden Ages. This period of history was not a particularly glorious time for the early adopters of Islamic ideology and the period is also known as the time of ignorance. While every effort has been made to ensure historical accuracy, we ask for your forgiveness if there is anything you disagree with or find to be incorrect. We have strived to maintain accuracy of our narratives through authentic hadith and Quranic sources.

Please note that there is no attempt in any way to portray the Prophet Muhammad (saw) as we respect his wishes to not be portrayed or drawn in any manner. You will however, find script and narrative that is in line with authentic hadith and occasionally paraphrased to the best of our abilities to accommodate the transliterated language.

We also encourage you to check our awesome new gaming gear based on this release @

We sincerely hope that you enjoy...

We do hope that you will support our humble yet pioneering creative efforts.

          AMD Vega GPUs will launch "over the next couple of months".   
http://techreport.com/news/31948/amd-says-its-vega-cards-will-launch-over-the-next-couple-of-months

AMD has said that the Frontier Edition professional card will launch first, and is still on track for a Q2 launch.  Gaming and compute cards will launch shortly thereafter, and all within a couple of months.  So the Radeon RX Vega might not launch until July, but as of right now, should launch no later than that.

That's not a promise that all Vega cards that will ever launch will do so within two months of today.  But it is a claim that within the next two months, AMD will launch at least one Vega-based GPU in each of their consumer graphics, professional graphics, and GPU compute lines.  Whether those will be a hard launch, a soft launch, or a paper launch is yet to be confirmed.

Given that the consumer graphics cards typically launch well before the professional graphics cards, I expect that this is due to a shortage of HBM2.  The ongoing scarcity of $9000 Nvidia Quadro GP100 cards that also rely on HBM2 points in this direction as well.
          Dell Inspiron 15 7560 review   

Dell’s high-end laptops have always been praised for their looks and build quality. A good example of this is the XPS 13, which was a trend setter in the ultrabook segment, with its thin bezel and golden chassis. Now Dell seems to have brought a similar spin to their Inspiron series. We believe it is a good time for Dell to do that too. Inspiron laptops have always been closely associated with performance and value. There wasn’t much innovation in the design area, until now.

The new Dell Inspiron 7560 is one of the most stunning notebooks we’ve seen. It looks classy, portable and carries top-of-the line hardware, something we all want and expect from our notebooks. However, with all of that, they also demand a premium price, specifically Rs. 80,999*. It’s certainly a high price to pay. We want to find out if you’re paying such a high price to also get a good performance, or just the fancy shell it comes in. Let’s find out.

 Design and Build

The Dell Inspiron 7560 certainly stands out when compared to other notebooks. With the lid shut, it’s actually hard to believe that it features a 15.6-inch screen. You don’t necessarily need a big bulky bag to carry it. It is however a little heavier than it looks, at 2kg. The outer shell features brushed aluminum, giving the laptop a premium and solid feel all around. The sharp-cut corners and sleek edges make the laptop look pretty bold. Our test unit was a silver one, but you can also buy the laptop in fancy gold.

Dell Inspiron_centre

On the inside, Dell has traded in style for functionality. The first thing you notice when you open the lid is the extremely slim bezel around the screen. Dell likes to call it the Infinite Edge Display and that’s a big reason why the laptop manages to have a smaller footprint than other notebooks. Besides that, you also notice the immersive experience it has to offer the moment you turn on the laptop.

Dell Inspiron_screen

The thin bezel is also responsible for a few other design changes. Because there is no space at the top, the webcam is moved to the bottom of screen. The move is understandable, but it isn’t implemented well. The angle of the camera too depends on how far back or front you tilt the screen. With the laptop placed on the lap, you need to push the hinge all the way back to get your whole face in the frame.

The smaller footprint also means you don’t get a numerical pad. However, the keyboard deck looks roomy because of that. There’s plenty of space on either side of the keyboard and even around the trackpad for your palms to rest on. Keys have a good amount of spacing between them. In the start, the keys feel a little too far apart. However once you get used to them, you get better accuracy. There isn’t a lot of travel on them. In fact, they felt a little rigid in the start and they get softer as you use them more. Best thing about the keyboard though is that it's backlit.

Dell Inspiron_keyboard

The soft rubber-like material on the deck feels comfortable, but what’s irritating are the sharp edges of the metal chassis that outline it. Long typing sessions resulted in some marks on both our wrists. We constantly had to keep taking breaks to give them rest. This depends on how you’re sitting and at what incline.

Dell Inspiron_design1

The track pad is a pretty big and very responsive. Multi-finger gestures work well. Almost all the ports are place on the left, except for a USB port and the SD card slot. The vents are placed at the top-end of the keyboard, so you can’t see them, while the speakers are placed at the bottom.

Hardware and software

It’s quite impressive to see that Dell hasn’t compromised much on the hardware, even while working with such a compact build. You still get a graphics card in the form of the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX. It isn’t exactly high-end, but you can still run new game titles but at lower quality settings though. The graphics card is still capable of running video editing software, without much trouble.

Dell Inspiron_side

Besides that, you get a 7th generation Intel Core i7 7500U processor running with 8GB of RAM, which is pretty good. There is a 1TB hard drive but what we’re more excited about is the additional 128GB SSD. The operating system is loaded on it, so we’re expecting a snappy Windows 10 experience right from the get go. The battery is not a detachable one. It’s a little less than what we expected, but with the efficiency of the Core i7 processor, it just might be satisfactory. We’ll find out more a little later.

On the connectivity front you get everything that you pay for (almost). There is an HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0. You get a SD card slot, headphone jack and even a LAN port. It would’ve been nice if it also came with a Type C port, as they are becoming popular. However you still get a Wi-Fi AC and Bluetooth 4.1, for faster wireless connectivity. The camera can also shoot videos in 720p.

You get Windows 10 right out of the box. There’s plenty of bloatware included in the form of basic games and software. A good number of Dell’s proprietary apps are also present. Among them is a Power Manager which helps you monitor the battery performance and even customize a few of its features including when it should stop charging when connected to the charger.

There are plenty of Microsoft apps included too. You actually get a year’s free subscription to Office, which is good to have. Also included is their 3D software called 3D Builder. Cortana comes right-out-the-box with Windows 10, but you do have to sign in to make the most of it.

Infinity Edge Display

The screen comes with a full HD resolution. We rescaled apps to match the resolution and liked the experience here. Running apps alongside each other looked really good. The slim bezel certainly helps makes the experience much more intriguing. It was possible to read articles, without squinting. The output is really sharp and it reflects with videos, photos or just plain text.

Dell Inspiron_TEXT

Naturally, videos and games also look pretty immersive on the laptop, thanks to near-bezel-less screen. There are some drawbacks though. Colors don’t look very saturated. As a result, some videos we played looked dull, losing out a little on the sharpness. The other problem are the blacks. Although they are pretty deep, they hide a lot of detail in a frame, even with the brightness set to high. It only gets worse because of the glare on the screen caused by the light around. The viewing angles are also pretty poor.

Dell Inspiron_MOVIE

Don’t get us wrong, the screen is not bad but when compared to other notebooks it’s not as good as we expected it to be. This is disheartening because you’re paying quite a premium price for it.

 Performance

Performance is one place where you clearly see the return on your money. Plenty of credit here goes to the SSD. The operating system is loaded on the SSD, so the laptop boots up in just a few seconds. Basic applications like web browsing and Microsoft Office are handled very easily. Opening and closing applications is a matter of split-seconds. The SSD also offers great read and write speeds. It was able to copy a 1GB file from the hard drive to the SSD, in just a matter of 5 seconds.

Dell Inspiron_multi-tasking

Multi-tasking is also quite manageable on the laptop. We created three virtual desktops running multiple applications including games, Netflix, Chrome and the laptop still managed to run pretty smoothly. It did heat up to some extent, but this was only prominent near the vent. You don’t experience it anywhere on the keyboard deck, so it doesn’t affect the user that much.

game

For our game performance test, we loaded Dirt Rally on the laptop. The game looks pretty good and we were actually able to run the game at high quality settings, although not perfectly. The game does stutter at this quality and so did the audio. The built-in benchmark ran the game at about 25 fps, which isn’t that good. However, at medium quality, the performance gets a lot smoother.

Dell Inspiron_Dirt Rally

We ran a couple of other benchmarks on the laptop too. The 3D Mark test score was exactly as expected. The laptop scored 2595 points, which as shown is better than the average notebook, but not good enough to be called a gaming laptop.

Dell Inspiron_3D mark

In the CrystalDiskMark test, the SSDs was able to let the Inspiron score about five times more the average notebook, with a good write speed of 231 MB/s and a read speed 543 MB/s.

Dell Inspiron_CrystalDiskMark

Battery performance is a little disappointing. We got a total of 3 hours on the laptop with moderate use. This included few hours of web browsing, using Word, watching videos on YouTube for half an hour and playing games for another half an hour. The laptop also charged pretty slowly.

The built-in speaker is reasonably loud, but they don’t sound really good. While playing a movie on Netflix, the dialogues were barely audible. You have to sit very close to the laptop to hear them. With the hollow sound they offer, we would hardly recommend playing music on them.

Ron Funches: FUNCH-A-MANIA
Since leaving Portland for Los Angeles in 2012, it’s been impossible not to root for Ron Funches as he navigates his way through the world of show business. Armed with a huge smile and a warmth that could melt even the most jaded of audiences, Funches used his role as a cast member in Kroll Show, along with an array of @midnight and Conan appearances, to establish himself as a force on the national scale just as easily as he rose through the ranks here in town. Even with his newly-minted star status, Funches isn’t one to shy away from the nerdier aspects of his persona that made him so easy to love in the first place. In an interview with Rolling Stone’s gaming site Glixel, he describes himself as a walking Nintendo Switch commercial, so expect no shortage of opportunities to geek-out with the comedian when his WWE-inspired “Funch-A-Mania” tour swings through Revolution Hall tonight.

          Is the HP TouchSmart 600 1055 23" PC the Very Latest Computer Technology   
Should you be one of the those people who are always trying to find the next best computer to hit the market you might find that the HP TouchSmart 600-1055 23-Inch PC fits the bill. You are going to discover that computer towers are becoming a thing of the past and all the computer components are going to be placed in the computer screen. And that's why this computer is recognized as one of the top of the line computers available today and what we're talking about here.

One of the greatest things concerning this computer is the touch screen technology that they have put into a 23 inch screen. If you are unaware, 23 inch screens have been around for many years, but it's the touch screen that's really the big feature here. The touch screen means that even though you can use a mouse it is not essential. You will recognize that the touch screen that you receive with this computer is among the things that men and women really love.

If you do decide to use the mouse with this computer you're going to discover that the mouse and also the keyboard are wireless. And to make things even better you can make use of the wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n to hook up a wireless printer to this computer system. This helps to scale back on all the wires you would have with a traditional tower type computer. Therefore, the most wires that you have to connect to your computer system is one for the internet and also one for the power.

One thing we should discuss is the quality of graphics you'll find in this device. You might find that gaming on this computer might cause some problems with massive sized games but you'll be able to watch blu-ray movies with the built in blu-ray player without an issue. There are plenty of games that just require too much for the graphics as well as the graphics card which comes with this computer isn't powerful enough to handle some games. Nevertheless for movies and various other games you will not have any problem.

Although there are actually too many features relating to this computer for us to cover here, you will be able to see all of the features on Amazon's product description page. You'll also discover that you will have the ability to order this computer right from Amazon for just $1,499.99. Even though some of you may possibly be thinking that this is a lot of money to invest on a computer, when you look at all the amazing features offered with this system, it might be worth the price. In all this computer system has taken all of the most advanced technology and put it all in to this one computer while eliminating the tower.

Starcraft Remastered

El equipo de Ars Technica ha tenido la oportunidad de ir a Santa Monica para poder hablar con los responsables de StarCraft Remastered, el remake del mítico juego de estrategia que Bizzard reveló a finales de marzo. Casi veinte años después, el StarCraft original recibe un lavado de cara que demuestra que aún hay gente que sigue jugándolo.

Y en Santa Monica han recibido los datos que muchos estaban esperando: StacCraft Remastered llegará a macOS el próximo 14 de agosto. El juego incluirá todo el contenido de la versión original y de la expansión Brood War, sumando así seis campañas a una resolución 4K que nos llenará de nostalgia a más de uno.

Blizzard abrirá una compra anticipada del juego antes de la fecha del lanzamiento, ofreciendo contenido extra a todo aquél que se gaste esos 14,99 euros que cuesta antes del día 14 de agosto. Otra buena noticia: todo nuestro progreso se guardará en la nube tal y como se hace ya con el resto de juegos de Blizzard.

Ah, y para quien sea más exigente, podremos recuperar los gráficos originales del juego pulsando un botón. Y las partidas online podrán hacerse con quien tenga el juego original, ampliando la base de jugadores ya de buen principio. Algo me dice que este va a caer en muchos hogares de treintañeros.

          Lawyer to Examine Bales’ Medications at Time of Afghan Killings   

John Henry Browne, the attorney for the U.S. soldier charged with killing 17 Afghan civilians on March 11, told the NewsHour in a telephone interview that he was interested in learning what medications his client, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, was taking at the time of the shootings.

“We have to order his medical records, and they haven’t given them to us yet,” he said on Thursday. “He was taking medications, but we don’t know whether it was aspirin, heart medicines. We don’t know what it was.” 

Browne said that in some previous legal cases, he has cited the side effects of a prescribed drug in a client’s defense. 

“There are a lot of medicines that can backfire,” Browne said. He pointed, in particular, to recent reports about Lariam, an anti-malarial medication.

NewsHour viewers have their suspicions as well. “I can tell you that I personally ruined my life because of that substance in July 2011 and I have no memory of my actions,” one viewer said of the sleeping medication Ambien in an email to the NewsHour.

Online chat rooms also are buzzing with speculation about the popular drug. “Do you suspect Robert Bales will blame Ambien?” reads one March 21 message posted by the screen name “Reapist” to an online gaming discussion forum. Another commenter, “Floridadave,” writing at a Yahoo chat room, said: “If I were him, I would use the Ambien defense. Heck, it works for congressmen when they get stopped for DUI in DC.”

The chat room participant referenced how in 2006 Rep. Patrick Kennedy issued a statement saying he had been disoriented when he crashed his car on Capitol Hill because he had been on Ambien.

STEROIDS

The NewsHour reported on March 26 that, according to an internal Pentagon document, investigators discovered suspected steroids were hidden in Bales’ living quarters. Anabolic steroids, when taken in high doses, are widely believed capable of triggering irritability and aggression, though any role in this particular case remains uncertain.

LARIAM

One former Army psychiatrist, retired Col. Elspeth Ritchie, recently said that Lariam — or the generic mefloquine — may have triggered a psychotic episode, which could have involved hearing voices or experiencing delusions. Ritchie told the NewsHour that a soldier would be given blood and urine tests after he or she is suspected of committing a crime. If Bales had taken mefloquine, it would be detected in those tests.

A Huffington Post report said the Defense Department had ordered an emergency review of the military’s use of this drug. However, a Pentagon spokesman on March 26 said this review was ordered in January and “has absolutely no connection to the ongoing case or investigation into the actions for which Staff Sgt. Robert Bales has been charged.”

Although there is little debate about the side effects of Lariam, there is a raging debate among psychiatrists about whether there could be a connection between Ambien and the alleged incident involving Bales.

 AMBIEN

Ambien — or the generic zolpidem — “is usually harmless,” but “bizarre behavior is well known as an uncommon side effect,” said Dr. Frank Ochberg, a clinical professor of psychiatry at Michigan State University.

The medication’s package insert warns the drug could lead to decreased inhibition such as “aggressiveness and extroversion that seem out of character” and is “similar to the effects produced by alcohol.”  Hallucinations, confusion, agitation and depersonalization are also reported side effects. These so called “sleep-related, complex behaviors” are usually accompanied by anterograde amnesia, meaning one has no memory of doing these things.

Given reports that Bales might have been troubled by the wounding of a fellow soldier, might the sergeant have taken Ambien, fallen asleep, and then gotten out of bed and gone on a rampage?

“Not only possible, but the best angle for his defense to take,” Ochberg said in an email. “Soldiers have ‘gone berserk’ since ancient times. It is a state of mind that may be vengeful, but also may be a wild killing spree with no conscious control and little pleasure from the killing itself — as though a primitive drive is released and the beast-part of all of us is let loose.”

It could be that this brand of horrific violence cannot be fully explained, he said.

“After any unexpected violent act, we search for rational explanations. Sometimes the best explanation is that reason was turned off and primitive, predatory parts of the brain took over,” said Ochberg. “Lions do this when taking over a new pride. They kill the young of other males. They don’t hate ‘children.’ They are wired in a way that serves their DNA. We are ‘wired’ in a way that requires socialization, social control, law and consequences to keep our inner lions from ruling our behavior.”

Ochberg is not alone in suspecting the sleeping drug might have played a contributing role in the March violence.  

“The whole thing is pretty mysterious to me if it’s not Ambien,” Dr. Jonathan Shay told the NewsHour. The author of two books about veterans and post-traumatic stress disorder, Shay said if the soldier “had a good dose of zolpidem in his blood stream,” it’s entirely possible he could slip off base and go on a rampage.  

“Whichever way his imagination blew him is the direction he would go,” he said. “Unless somebody externally prevented him from doing so.”  

“Ambien is commonly prescribed (to soldiers) on a short term basis for plane flights,” Ritchie said. “Only 5 or 10 tablets are given at a time, without refills.” The former Army psychiatrist also said Ambien can interact with alcohol and other medications to cause psychiatric reactions but they are not generally severe. 

“Ambien is commonly used and is relatively safe,” Ritchie said.

Other psychiatrists are even more adamant in their opposing views. There is “no way” the soldier in Afghanistan was in an unconscious sleep state, according to retired Capt. William Nash, a former Navy psychiatrist.

“He could not possibly have done so much damage in such a short time. He had to have been completely and alertly focused on his tasks,” Nash said in an email. “I know of no cases or studies suggesting Ambien has contributed to violence of any kind in war zones.”

Other doctors believe there is just too much unknown about this case in order to speculate about any role for the sleeping aid.  

“I think that is really a stretch,” said Dr. David Greenblatt, professor of molecular physiology and pharmacology at Tufts University. “There is not enough information to suggest that zolpidem or any other drug is causally related to it (the violence). Don’t forget we have millions of patients out there with insomnia, and sleep-related complex behaviors can occur without medications.”

“It’s speculation I wouldn’t want to make,” said Dr. Richard Shader, professor emeritus of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics at Tufts University. “I understand where somebody could say, yeah, it’s possible. But possible one in 10 times, one in 100 times, one in 1,000 times? Saying it’s possible doesn’t give you a denominator.  And that’s what you need. Not only do you need a denominator, but you need to know if this individual would be the exception to the rule. Because the rule is it doesn’t happen.” 

Shader has first-hand experience with amnesia of events while on a sleeping pill similar to Ambien.

In the late 1970s or 1980s, while flying to England to give a speech, he took the medication because he feared he would otherwise not be adequately rested for the next day. After arriving at the airport, Shader traveled to Surrey, southwest of London, and gave a lecture.

He then had dinner with friends, who asked him how he got to Surrey, whether he had any trouble finding his way and how the lecture went. Shader told the NewsHour he could not remember either getting to Surrey or giving the lecture.  

“That’s the kind of thing that can happen” while on medications like Ambien, he said. “It’s a matter of the right dose at the right time.” 

But Shader said it is unclear whether this has any relevance to Bales because it is not yet known whether he was taking sleep medications and, if he was, what the concentrations were. “I think it would be harmful speculation to try to implicate a pill,” Shader said.

LEGAL PRECEDENT

There is precedent, though, for blaming criminal actions on medication.   

“If an individual takes Ambien and then has an episode of some activity undertaken while he’s asleep, that would preclude any possibility of premeditation if he were to commit a crime,” said retired Lt. Col. Gary Solis, a former Marine Corps lawyer. “The individual would have the defense of essentially intoxication, a medical forum of intoxication. And premeditation would be precluded.”  

Solis said that in most states the Ambien defense has been ineffective if the accused did not follow the medication’s directions. “For example, the directions say that one should immediately go to bed after taking Ambien. If one did not do so, then those states disregard the defense, and they treat it as if it were voluntary intoxication,” Solis said. “If an individual were to take Ambien in conjunction with alcohol, contrary to the directions, similar outcome.”

Solis said that given media reports allege Bales was drinking — citing information from unnamed Pentagon officials — any Ambien defense put forth probably would not succeed.

          Re: Feature: The NES and SNES Mini Could Live On Through Nintendo Switch   

@gortsi well, it only affects the Wii mode, not the Wii U gameplay services, so for Wii U online gaming, there'll be no risk involved.

And I would think that nothing happens with online in the Wii mode either, since that's just the same as a modded Wii, but that's not really relevant anymore, because most (if not all) online functionality on the Wii has been discontinued.

But since I haven't modded my Wii U yet, you'd be better off asking @JaxonH. He's the one with experience in that regard.

          Re: Rumour: Porting Steep to the Switch Is Posing a Steep Challenge   

@NEStalgia

It's an odd complaint when you consider that gamers often spend alot of money on video games anyway. The PS4 apparently has all the games, but plenty of gamers have added an Xbox One or a gaming PC for playing video games. Owning multiple consoles has been a thing among non-Nintendo gamers even as Sony has been successful securing all the third-party titles for the PS/PS2/PS3/PS4.

We came up with our own list of games we want Sony to push out and bring back for this generation of gaming."

          Podcast324: Gaming, Fun, and Digital Citizenship at the Internet Cafe in Cushing, Oklahoma   
This podcast is a recording of an interview I conducted in February 2009 with Linda the Computer Lady at her Internet Cafe in Cushing, Oklahoma. The young people in Cushing (as well as older folks who are digitally inclined) are extremely fortunate to have an entrepreneur like Linda in their community who has provided this accountable and safe environment for Internet-based gaming and fun since 2004. Where Internet Cafes focused on gaming for teens have failed in some other Oklahoma communities, this business in Cushing (a small community of approximately 8000 people) is continuing to survive. Linda’s cafe is the 21st century version of the corner drug store or soda fountain. I was impressed with the ways Linda maintains a climate of accountability for her patrons, and the ways she is helping them learn about digital citizenship, accountability, and the responsible use of digital resources as they enjoy gaming online. In the introduction to the podcast, I also share a few experiences about testing the Platronics 470 headset for podcasting. I recorded this interview after recording a webcast for the Oklahoma Technology Assistance Center (OTAC) which is located across the street from Linda’s Internet Cafe in Cushing. I wish all our Oklahoma communities could have an Internet Cafe environment like Linda’s to enjoy and in which they could learn.

          India Content Delivery Network Market Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 22.9% Through 2026: FMI Report   

Future Market Insights has announced the addition of the “Content Delivery Network Market: India Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026" report to their offering.

Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/28/2017 -- According to a recent market report published by Future Market Insights titled "Content Delivery Network (CDN) Market: India Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016–2026," the India content delivery network market was valued at US$ 239.8 Mn in 2015 and is expected to register a CAGR of 22.9% between 2016 and 2026. Growth of the India content delivery network market is primarily driven by a growing subscriber base for smart devices and increasing use of the internet.

A growing adoption and usage of smart devices has led to a rise in internet traffic (content), which in turn is boosting the demand for content delivery networks from various content owners. Additionally, several SMEs in emerging markets are focusing on using digital platforms and the internet to expand their market presence. This is likely to result in increasing loading time of webpages due to increasing traffic and congestion on the internet. Engaging customers is vital for sustaining in this business and this factor is becoming highly challenging owing to rapidly expanding online economic conditions characterised by intense competition. All these factors are expected to increase deployment of CDN for efficient delivery of online content over the forecast period, further propelling the growth of the India content delivery network market.

Request For Sample@ http://www.futuremarketinsights.com/reports/sample/rep-in-1818

The costs of establishing a content delivery network are quite high (huge infrastructure costs and a high capital expenditure but less ROI in the initial stages). This can be quite challenging for new entrants heading into the highly competitive CDN market in India with high quality services. This market is likely to witness some key trends in the coming few years such as – reduced prices of CDN services, multi-CDN delivery and streaming of content, CDN services support for IPv6, and the use of next-generation hardware to run content delivery networks.

Market forecast

By Service Provider (Telecom CDN, Conventional CDN, Other): The Telecom CDN provider segment is expected to create incremental opportunity of US$ 479.1 Mn between 2016 and 2026. The Conventional CDN provider segment is expected to create incremental opportunity of US$ 1.49 Bn between 2016 and 2026.
By Application (Web Acceleration, Streaming, Gaming, CDN Storage): The Streaming segment in the India content delivery network market was valued at US$ 120.6 Mn in 2015 and is expected to reach US$ 1.3 Bn by 2026. The Web Acceleration segment in the India content delivery network market was valued at US$ 72.4 Mn in 2015 and is expected to reach US$ 727.7 Mn by 2026.

Send An Enquiry@ http://www.futuremarketinsights.com/askus/rep-in-1818

By End-use Vertical (Media & Entertainment, E–commerce, TELCO, Healthcare, Government & Education, Other (Gaming, Advertisement, etc.)): In terms of value, the Media & Entertainment segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 25.3% over the forecast period. In terms of value, the E-commerce segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 24.0% over the forecast period.
Some of the leading market players in the content delivery network market in India include Akamai Technologies Inc., CDNetworks Co. Ltd., Limelight Networks Inc., MaxCDN Enterprise, Amazon CloudFront – Amazon.com Inc., Tata Communications Ltd., CDN77, and Leshi Internet Information & Technology (LeEco).

Ich kann ebenfalls den BenQ RL2455HM jeden Gamer nur wärmstens empfehlen - kostet wenig und kann viel. besonders als cs go spieler profitiert man von der reaktionszeit von 1ms und dem black equalizer =)
          Kommentar zu Gaming Monitor von Peter Brel   
Schöner Bericht. Als Gamer sollte man auf jeden Fall darauf achten, dass der Monitor über eine geringe Reaktionszeit und eine hohe Bildwiederholfrequenz verfügt, da es beim Spielen ja oft zu raschen Bewegungen kommt.

          Jetzt online: PortableGaming Podcast #57 - Die E3-Nachlese 2017   

Ihr habt es vielleicht mitbekommen: Vor nicht allzu vielen Wochen war wieder E3-Saison! Das bedeutet natürlich auch, dass Nintendo erneut nach Frankfurt einlädt, wo es einige der gerade erst in Los Angeles präsentierten Neuerungen direkt für die deutschlandgebundenene Pressekräfte anzuspielen gab. Drei Mitglieder unserer Redaktion waren vor Ort, zwei von ihnen berichten in dieser Ausgabe des PortableGaming Podcasts von ihren Erlebnissen.

So hat sich Nicola als XCOM-Liebhaber hoffnungslos in Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle verliebt, obwohl er sein neues Schätzchen aufgrund des Andrangs vor Ort leider nicht anzocken konnte. Andy wiederum schickte jeden in Pokémon Tekken auf die Matte, der es auch nur wagte, den Controller gegen ihn zu erheben. Und Tjark? Der hört gebannt zu und bringt Releasedaten durcheinander. Volles Programm also.

Wir wünschen maximales Hörvergnügen!

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, CS:GO (рус. «Контрудар: глобальное наступление») — компьютерная игра, разработанная компаниями Valve и Hidden Path Entertainment; последняя основная игра в серии игр Counter-Strike.
 
Выход на ПК под управлением Microsoft Windows, на компьютерах Mac и игровых приставках Xbox 360 и PlayStation 3состоялся 21 августа 2012 года. 23 сентября 2014 года игра была выпущена на Linux (изначально в статусе бета-версии).
 
 
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) возродит тот ураганный командный игровой процесс, впервые представленный еще 12 лет назад.
CS: GO включает в себя новые карты, персонажей и оружие, а также улучшенную версию классической составляющей CS (de_dust и т.п.). Кроме того, CS: GO содержит новые игровые режимы, систему организации матчей, списки лучших игроков и многое другое.
 
«Counter-Strike была сюрпризом для игровой индустрии, когда не особо удачный мод стал одним из самых популярных шутеров в мире сразу же после его релиза в Августе 1999 года, — говорит Даг Ломбарди из Valve, — за прошедшие 12 лет, она все еще одна из самых популярных в мире игр, часто появляется на игровых соревнованиях и продана в количестве более 25 миллионов копий по всему миру. CS: GO обещает возродить знаменитый игровой процесс Counter-Strike и предложить его игрокам не только на ПК, но и на консолях следующего поколения и компьютерах Mac».

История разработки

 
Первые новости о разработке игры появились вместе с официальным анонсом — 12 августа 2011 года. Слухи о том, что компания Valve, ответственная за серию игр Counter-Strike, разрабатывает новую часть игры (последней на тот момент основной игрой серии, не считая отдельной версии, направленной на азиатскую аудиторию, была Counter-Strike: Source 2004 года) распространились несколькими днями ранее.
 
В анонсе игры сообщалось о том, что разработчики обещают сохранить основы игрового процесса «классической» версии игры — Counter-Strike 1.6, а также добавить новые карты для многопользовательских сражений (среди которых будут ремейки старых карт с улучшенной графикой), модели бойцов и оружие. В числе прочих усовершенствований ожидались онлайн-таблицы рекордов и система автоматического подбора соперников. Говорилось о том, что игра выйдет в начале 2012 года, а в 2011 году она будет продемонстрирована на выставках PAX Prime и Eurogamer Expo. Игра разрабатывалась для персонального компьютера с операционными системами Microsoft Windows и Mac OS X, и для игровых консолей PlayStation 3 и Xbox 360 (там она вышла в онлайн-сервисах PlayStation Network и Xbox Live соответственно).
 
Некоторые сайты предположили, что Counter-Strike: Global Offensive будет базироваться на последней версии игрового движка Source, собственной разработки Valve, на которой построены все последние игры студии; однако в официальном анонсе нет никаких уточнений, касающихся технологической части[5][6][7][8][9][10]. Несколько крупных сайтов опубликовали «трейлер игры», который на самом деле является перемонтированным любителем (в частности, изменена надпись в конце ролика) трейлером другой части, Counter-Strike Online.
 
Примерно одновременно с первыми новостями-анонсами игры появились сведения о том, что разработчики компании Valve пригласили лучших кибер-спортсменов, играющих в Counter-Strike для тестирования новой части; один из тестеров описал свои впечатления от знакомства с рабочей версией Global Offensive в небольшом превью, в котором он сообщает о том, что «проект разработан на обновленном движке Source», подтверждает данные о новых видах оружия и о том, что в игре будут улучшенные и переделанные версии старых карт («карты выглядели великолепно, скины игроков и анимация бесподобны, а модели оружия чрезвычайно красивы»); по словам тестера игра представляет собой рабочую версию, но «выглядит лучше, чем какая-то pre-beta»[11][12].
 
15 августа 2011 появились другие новости относительно игры: стало известно, что студия Hidden Path Entertainment, сотрудничающая с Valve, намерена и после выходаGlobal Offensive заниматься обновлениями для Counter-Strike: Source (параллельно с обновлениями Global Offensive), появились подробности о некоторых деталях игрового процесса (так, денежная система полностью переработана, появились новые взрывоопасные предметы — коктейль Молотова и ложная граната, которая имитирует оружейные выстрелы, сбивая противника с толку)[13].
 
20 августа 2011 и несколькими днями позднее стали появляться новости о том, что разработчики намерены сделать многопользовательский режимкроссплатформенным, однако такая совместимость будет только с Windows-версией, Mac-версией и версией для PlayStation 3; то есть, владельцы игры, играющие на приставке, и игроки, играющие на персональных компьютерах, получат возможность сражаться вместе на одних серверах. «Мы больше не хотим делить игровую индустрию на обособленные друг от друга островки» — прокомментировал заявление о поддержке кроссплатформенной игры Гейб Ньюэлл, основатель компанииValveТакже было заявлено, что версия игры для PlayStation 3 будет в полной мере поддерживать управление с клавиатуры и мыши (которые можно подключить к консоли посредством предусмотренных портов USB). Доступно стандартное управление с контроллера приставки и управление с контроллера PlayStation Move
Гейб Ньюэлл также выступил с критикой Microsoft, отметив чрезмерную закрытость программной платформы, не позволяющей реализовать многие сетевые функции, в том числе совместную игру с другими платформами (именной по этой причине совместная игра с игроками Xbox 360 не может быть реализована).
 
26 августа 2011 вышел первый официальный трейлер игры, в котором были продемонстрированы графика (использование последней на момент разработки игры версии движка Source), игровой процесс (включая новое меню покупки оружия), карты и вооружение
6 сентября 2011 стало известно, что Counter-Strike: Global Offensive будет представлена на игровой выставке «ИгроМир 2011». На выставке будет впервые в мире показана ПК-версия игры
 
19 сентября 2011 стало известно, что в новой игре будет доступен так называемый «казуальный режим». Новички смогут играть индивидуально; игра для них будет более простой, а оружие не нужно будет покупать.
 
22 сентября 2011 компания Valve заявила о том, что в числе многопользовательских режимов будут режимы Arsenal: Demolition и Arsenal: Arms Race. Эти режимы впервые были представлены в любительском моде Gun Game для Counter-Strike: Source; разработчикам игры они понравились, поэтому было решено пригласить авторов мода к работе над новой частью.
 
1 октября 2011 года один из разработчиков Valve сообщил, что компьютерная версия игры не будет отличаться от консольной[28].
 
В начале ноября представители Valve сообщили, что открытое бета-тестирование игры, которое планировалось начать в октябре, откладывается в связи с желанием авторов поработать над игрой прежде чем выводить её на публику.
 
18 ноября 2011 года компания Valve сообщила, что закрытое бета-тестирование начнётся 30 ноября.
 
4 июня 2012 года Valve на выставке E3 объявили дату выхода Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, которая намечена на 21 августа 2012 года и цену, для всех платформ составляющую 14,99$.
 
8 августа 2012 года стал доступен предзаказ игры на Цифровой платформе Steam. Также было объявлено, что открытое бета-тестирование стартует 14 августа, однако оно будет доступно для тех, кто воспользовался предзаказом игры, то есть приобрёл её до официального релиза.
 
15 августа 2012 года Valve в своём блоге опубликовали полную статистику бета-теста начиная с 1 декабря 2011 года и до 15 августа 2012.
 
16 августа 2012 года стало известно, что все, кто предзаказал Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, в подарок получат предмет из Team Fortress 2. Этот предмет — оружие для снайпера, сделанный в виде AWP. AWPer Hand высшей пробы уже получили все, кто предзаказал CS:GO в Steam до 21 августа.
 
22 августа 2012 года (в 21:00 по Москве) состоялся релиз игры в Steam. В тот же день вышло первое обновление.

Правила игры Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

 

 

1. Перед началом игры каждый пользователь выбирает одну из доступных команд, за которую впоследствии будет играть: Террористы или Контртеррористы.

2. Игра ведется на заранее выбранной карте.

3. Игра на карте состоит из серии коротких раундов. Каждый раунд выигрывается посредством выполнения определенных задач: для террористов - установить бомбу на одном из двух объектов, взорвать его или уничтожить всю вражескую команду; для контртеррористов - предотвратить установку бомбы на объекте либо разминировать объект, на котором уже установлена бомба, или уничтожить всю вражескую команду.

4. В начале раунда игроки обеих команд появляются в специально отведенном для этого месте возникновения, откуда расходятся по разным частям карты.

5. В начале раунда все имеют доступ (исключительно на месте возникновения) к магазину, в котором приобретается необходимое для выполнения задачи снаряжение (оружие, экипировка и гранаты).

6. Когда игрок погибает, он должен дождаться окончания раунда, чтобы вновь появиться на месте возникновения.

7. За выполнение боевой задачи все игроки победившей в раунде команды получают денежное вознаграждение, позволяющее совершать более дорогие покупки в магазине на месте возникновения и соответственно иметь преимущество перед командой-соперником. Выполнение задач или убийство противника принесет деньги. Убийство товарища по команде - отнимет.

8. По прошествии 15 раундов команды меняются местами: террористы превращаются в контртеррористов, а контртеррористы - в террористов.

9. Команда, выигравшая первой суммарно 16 раундов, побеждает.

 

*правила игры распространяются на наиболее популярный режим - Классический Соревновательный (сценарий - Установка / Разминирование бомбы).

          Comment on Flash Player performance – we need your input by Joseph Burchett   
When I saw this headline I really thought you were going to be discussing the much more popular issue (at least in the flash gaming community) of increasing the graphical rendering power of flash; 3D. Even with the new 3D api, Flash player still chugs real badly when trying to render more complex objects. With the birth of Unity and 3D in the web becoming so popular, a lot of Flash developers are flocking to either Iphone or Unity 3D development simply because Flash can not handle a really intense graphical experience.Of course all the popular 3D engines out there like papervision, away 3d, etc, have been trying as hard as they can to optimize and squeeze every bit of performance out of flash (using pixel bender seems to be the newest way to squeeze more performance out of it) as they possibly can.Why Adobe has not publicly acknowledged (supported) the fact that Flash is a gaming platform I will never understand. So many conferences, websites, whole companies revolve around Flash as a gaming platform, and this should really be embraced and supported. The gaming industry is a billion dollar industry and a great place for adobe expand there business.Forgive me if this is not the type of response you were looking for, but this is a "Flash Player performance" related issue that needs to be addressed. To be more specific is the ability to allow Flash player to access the graphics card of the host computer, I know there are security issues, but Unity Player does it (or something similar I believe) and they have excellent 3D in the browser. Why can't Adobe do something similar?Thanks for listening, hopefully the Flash Player team are working on something to improve the ability of the player in this regard

          Xavier Mertens: SSTIC 2017 Wrap-Up Day #1   

I’m in Rennes, France to attend my very first edition of the SSTIC conference. SSTIC is an event organised in France, by and for French people. The acronym means “Symposium sur la sécurité des technologies de l’information et des communications“. The event has a good reputation about its content but is also known to have a very strong policy to sell tickets. Usually, all of them are sold in a few minutes, spread across 3 waves. I was lucky to get one this year. So, here is my wrap-up! This is already the fifteen edition with a new venue to host 600 security people. A live streaming is also available and a few hundred people are following talks remotely.

The first presentation was performed by  Octave Klaba who’s the CEO of the OVH operator. OVH is a key player on the Internet with many services. It is known via the BGP AS16276. Octave started with a complete overview of the backbone that he build from zero a few years ago. Today, it has a capacity of 11Tpbs and handles 2500 BGP sessions. It’s impressive how this CEO knows his “baby”. The next part of the talk was a deep description of their solution “VAC” deployed to handle DDoS attacks. For information, OVH is handler ~1200 attacks per day! They usually don’t communicate with them, except if some customers are affected (the case of Mirai was provided as an example by Octave). They chose the name “VAC” for “Vacuum Cleaner“. The goal is to clean the traffic as soon as possible before it enters the backbone. An interesting fact about anti-DDoS solutions: it is critical to detect them as soon as possible. Why? Let’s assume that your solution detects a DDoS within x seconds, attackers will launch attacks of less than x seconds. Evil! The “VAC” can be seen as a big proxy and is based on multiple components that can filter specific types of protocols/attacks. Interesting: to better handle some DDoS, the OVH teams reversed some gaming protocols to better understand how they work. Octave described in deep details how the solution has been implemented and is used today… for any customer! This is a free service! It was really crazy to get so many technical details from a… CEO! Respect!

The second talk was “L’administration en silo” by Aurélien Bordes and focused on some best practices for Windows services administration. Aurélien started with a fact: When you ask a company how is the infrastructure organised, they speak usually about users, data, computers, partners but… they don’t mention administrative accounts. From where and how are managed all the resources? Basically, they are three categories of assets. They can be classified based on colours or tiers.

  • Red: resources for admins
  • Yellow: core business
  • Green: computers

The most difficult layer to protect is… the yellow one. After some facts about the security of AD infrastructure,  Aurélien explained how to improve the Kerberos protocol. The solution is based on FAST, a framework to improve the Kerberos protocol. Another interesting tool developed by Aurélien: The Terminal Server Security Auditor. Interesting presentation but my conclusion is that in increase the complexity of Kerberos which is already not easy to master.

During the previous talk, Aurélien presented a slide with potential privilege escalation issues in an Active Directory environment. One of them was the WSUS server. It’s was the topic of the research presented by Romain Coltel and Yves Le Provost. During a pentest engagement, they compromised a network “A” but they also discovered a network “B” completely disconnected from “A”. Completely? Not really, there were WSUS servers communicating between them. After a quick recap of the WSUS server and its features, they explained how they compromised the second network “B” via the WSUS server. Such a server is based on three major components:

  • A Windows service to sync
  • A web service web to talk to clients (configs & push packages)
  • A big database

This database is complex and contains all the data related to patches and systems. Attacking a WSUS server is not new. In 2015, there was a presentation at BlackHat which demonstrated how to perform a man-in-the-middle attack against a WSUS server. But today, Romain and Yves used another approach. They wrote a tool to directly inject fake updates in the database. The important step is to use the stored procedures to not break the database integrity. Note that the tool has a “social engineering” approach and fake info about the malicious patch can be injected too to entice the admin to allow the installation of the fake patch on the target system(s). To be deployed, the “patch” must be a binary signed by Microsoft. Good news, plenty of tools are signed and can be used to perform malicious tasks. They use the tool psexec for the demo:

psexec -> cmd.exe -> net user /add

The DB being synced between different WSUS servers, it was possible to compromise the network “B”. The tool they developed to inject data into the WSUS database is called WUSpendu. A good recommendation is to put WSUS servers in the “red” zone (see above) and to consider them as critical assets. Very interesting presentation!

After two presentations focusing on the Windows world, back to the UNIX world and more precisely Linux with the init system called systemd. Since it was implemented in major Linux distribution, systemd has been the centre of huge debates between the pro-initd and pro-systemd. Same for me, I found it not easy to use, it introduces complexity, etc… But the presentation gave nice tips that could be used to improve the security of daemons started via systemd. A first and basic tip is to not use the root account but many new features are really interesting:

  • seccomp-bpf can be used to disable access to certain syscalls (like chroot() or obsolete syscalls)
  • capacities can be disabled (ex: CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE)
  • name spaces mount (ex: /etc/secrets is not visible by the service)

Nice quick tips that can be easily implemented!

The next talk was about Landlock by Michael Salaün. The idea is to build a sandbox with unprivileged access rights and to run your application in this restricted space. The perfect example that was used by Michael is a multi-media player. This kind of application includes many parsers and is, therefore, a good candidate to attacks or bugs. The recommended solution is, as always, to write good (read: safe) code and the sandbox must be seen as an extra security control. Michael explained how the sandbox is working and how to implement it. The example with the media player was to allow it to disable write access to the filesystem except if the file is a pipe.

After the lunch, a set of talks was scheduled around the same topic: analysis of code. If started with “Static Analysis and Run-time Assertion checking” by Dillon Pariente, Julien Signoles. The presented Frama-C a framework of C code analysis.

Then Philippe Biondi, Raphaël Rigo, Sarah Zennou, Xavier Mehrenberger presented BinCAT (“Binary Code Analysis Tool”). It can analyse binaries (x86 only) but will never execute code. Just by checking the memory, the register and much other stuff, it can deduce a program behaviour. BinCAT is integrated into IDA. They performed a nice demo of a keygen tool. BinCAT is available here and can also be executed in a Docker container. The last talk in this set was “Désobfuscation binaire: Reconstruction de fonctions virtualisées” by Jonathan Salwan, Marie-Laure Potet, Sébastien Bardin. The principle of the binary protection is to make a binary more difficult to analyse/decode but without changing the original capabilities. This is not the same as a packer. Here there is some kind of virtualization that emulates proprietary bytecode. Those three presentations represented a huge amount of work but were too specific for me.

Then, Geoffroy CoupriePierre Chifflier presented “Writing parsers like it is 2017“. Writing parsers is hard. Just don’t try to write your own parser, you’ll probably fail. But parsers are available in many applications. They are hard to maintain (old code, handwritten, hard to test & refactor). Issues based on parsers can have huge security impacts, just remember the Cloudbleed bleed bug! The proposed solution is to replace classic parsers by something stronger. The criteria’s are: must be memory safe, called by / can call C code and, if possible, no garbage collection process. RUST is a language made to develop parsers like nom. To test it, it has been used in projects like the VLC player and the Suricata IDS. Suricata was a good candidate with many challenges: safety, performance. The candidate protocol was TLS. About VLC and parser, the recent vulnerability affecting the subtitles parser is a perfect example why parsers are critical.

The last talk of the day was about caradoc. Developed by the ANSSI (French agency), it’s a toolbox able to decode PDF files. The goal is not to extract and analyse potentially malicious streams from PDF files. Like the previous talk, the main idea was to avoid parsing issues. After reviewing the basics of the PDF file format, Guillaume Endignoux, Olivier Levillain made two demos. The first one was to open the same PDF file within two readers (Acrobat and Fox-It). The displayed content was not the same. This could be used in phishing campaigns or to defeat the analyst. The second demo was a malicious PDF file that crashed Fox-It but not Adobe (DDoS). Nice tool.

The day ended with a “rump” session (also called lighting talks by other conferences). I’m really happy with the content of the first day. Stay tuned for more details tomorrow! If you want to follow live talks, the streaming is available here.

          Xavier Mertens: Identifying Sources of Leaks with the Gmail “+” Feature   

For years, Google is offering two nice features with his gmail.com platform to gain more power of your email address. You can play with the “+” (plus) sign or “.” (dot) to create more email addresses linked to your primary one. Let’s take an example with John who’s the owner of john.doe@gmail.com. John can share the email address “john.doe+soccer@gmail.com” with his friends playing soccer or “john.doe+security@gmail.com”  to register on forums talking about information security. It’s the same with dots. Google just ignore them. So “john.doe@gmail.com” is the same as “john.d.oe@gmail.com”. Many people use the “+” format to optimize the flood of email they receive every day and automatically process it / store it in separate folders. That’s nice but it can also be very useful to discover where an email address is being used.

A few days ago, Troy Hunt, the owner of haveibeenpwned.com service (if you don’t know it yet, just have a look and register!), announced that new massive dumps were in the wild for a total of ~1B passwords! The new dumps are called “Exploit.In” (593M entries) and “Anti Public Combo List” (427M entries). The sources of the leaks are not clear. I grabbed a copy of the data and searched for Google “+” email addresses.

Not surprising, I found +28K unique accounts! I extracted strings after the “+” sign and indexed everything in Splunk:

Gmail Tags

As you can see, we recognise some known online services:

  • xtube (adult content)
  • friendster (social network)
  • filesavr (file exchange service in the cloud)
  • linkedin (social network)
  • bioware (gaming platform)

This does not mean that those platforms were breached (ok, LinkedIn was) but it can give some indicators…

Here is a dump of the top identified tags (with more than 3 characters to keep the list useful). You can download the complete CSV here.

          Phil Spencer Thinks The Xbox Brand Is Iconic In Console Gaming   
Spencer had a panel at GeekWire this year, and he talked about the competition between the PS4 and the Xbox One.Phil Spencer said a few interesting points in his interview with Time: „So when I think about our strengths in gaming, today the Xbox brand is iconic with console gaming. We are also Windows, like Microsoft, so we’ve placed a big focus on Windows gaming, and that’s a large addressable market that we haven’t played in that we’re expanding in. I see Xbox Live from a platform perspective as the most critical asset we have. Xbox Live is on iOS, it’s on Android, we talked about cross-play with Switch, and it’s obviously on PC and Xbox. When we think about the console space, it’s not the largest segment in gaming by far, but it is a critical customer segment that’s important, and they love their…

Welcome back dear reader, as the first week of this year’s challenge comes to a close; let’s tackle a very interesting topic: August 7: What aspect of Roleplaying Games has had the biggest effect on you? I attribute a lot of positive aspects in … Continue reading RPG a Day 2016: Better living through gaming! – Day 7
          Kolumne: 3D, VR, AR oder 4K? – Was ist das „Next Big Thing“ der Gaming Branche   
Wie sieht die Zukunft des Gaming aus. Eine Frage die sich viele stellen, aber keiner so wirklich beantworten kann. Denn der Markt lebt auch von Trends oder Hypes, dennoch nur kurzzeitig. Doch was beflügelt die Branche so sehr, dass sie in einigen Jahren kaum wegzudenken ist?  Einige Ideen sind bereits gescheitert, wie 3D etwa. Im Kino boomte die Technik, alle wollten plötzlich 3D Filme sehen. Und im Gaming Bereich? Da ist die Technik zwar da, Spiele die dafür optimiert wurden gibt es jedoch nur kaum, gerade für Konsolen. Aber auch dafür muss es Gründe geben. Doch die führen uns etwas woanders hin. LG und Sony etwa kündigten bereits an, keine 3D Fernseher herstellen zu wollen. Das bedeutet also es muss an der Technik liegen, dass sie einfach keiner nutzt. Und ja, es gibt Nachteile. Denn durch ein 3D Bild wird die Auflösung heruntergeschraubt, was für ein schwammigeres Bild sorgt, da mag im Kino noch zu verkraften sein, beim heimischen Bildschirm fällt das aber eher ins Gewicht. Zudem ist der Effekt nur bei einem richtig großen Bildschirm immersiv. So können Objekte im 3D Modus auch weiter nach vorne treten, da der Kinobildschirm einen Großteil unseres Sichtfeldes abdeckt. Bei einem deutlich kleineren TV zuhause deckt der Bildschirm ein deutlich geringeres Sichtfeld ab, die Folge: der 3D ist weit weniger intensiv. Zudem kommt es dann noch auf den Blickwinkel an, der unter Umständen den Effekt noch weiter verringern kann. Somit ist das Ende von 3D recht einfach erklärt, aber gibt es vielleicht ein Comeback? Zumindest das Problem mit der Auflösung umgehen ja schon die Shutter Brillen, dank kommenden 4K Trend wäre es auch weit weniger schlimm „nur“ 2K davon genießen zu können. Aber das Problem mit der zu geringen Immersion bleibt, da müsste es schon Brillen geben, die den 3D Effekt über den Bildschirmrand hinaus transportieren könnten, und das halte ich für schwierig, das geht schon in Richtung Mixed Reality, und um diesen Zweig geht es jetzt.   VR ist auch mittlerweile angekommen. Vive, Rift und PSVR duellieren sich in den Hardware Charts, ein paar Spiele gibt es auch, kommen aber meist nicht so recht über den Status „Tech-Demo“ hinaus, lediglich das Horror Genre scheint dort ein neues Heim gefunden zu haben. Doch VR bringt ein Problem mit, das in unserem Kopf entsteht. Nehmen wir Battlefield 1, an dieser Stelle dürft ihr aber gerne nahezu jedes x-beliebige schnellere Action Spiel einfügen. Die Erfahrung aus der Ego-Sicht ist in VR natürlich deutlich immersiver, als auf einem normalen Monitor. Die ganze Erfahrung ist ohnehin deutlich intensiver. Doch sobald es nicht nur um den Effekt geht, sondern um das Spiel, wendet sich das Blatt etwas. Angefangen beim Zielen, Profis werden mir zustimmen, genauer als mit der Maus, geht’s derzeit einfach nicht. Selbst Controller sind deutlich genauer, als das was unsere Hand mit der Knarre macht. Das lässt sich mit Wii Motion Plus oder den Playstation Move Controllern nachempfinden. Denn schnelles, und präzises Zielen, geht auf kompetitiver Ebene hier einfach nicht mit Bewegungssteuerung. Im Singleplayer, mit weniger Druck, ist es aber vielleicht sogar die spaßigere Angelegenheit. Das weitaus größere Problem ist aber das Movement. VR ist so immersiv, dass man denkt, man sei nun der Soldat. Aber was ist das, wir bewegen Stick oder drücken „W“ auf der Tastatur und wir bewegen uns nach vorn. Was für uns immer selbstverständlich war, wird nun kompliziert für unser Hirn. Denn alles bewegen wir mit unserem Körper, nur unsere Beine, die bleiben beim Gehen still, und das passt nicht zusammen für unser Gehirn. Es fühlt sich unnatürlich an, viele klagten an Übelkeit. Das hat auch die Industrie erkannt, und daher hat sich das Feature etabliert, sich voran zu porten. Man klickt also auf eine Stelle und man wird automatisch dorthin gebeamt. Das ist träge, aber man kann die Immersion einigermaßen aufrecht erhalten. Für einen schnellen Shooter, in dem man auch mal so seine Entfernung zu laufen hat, aber eigentlich keine Option. Was bleibt als Alternative? Selbst laufen? Mit der Vive funktioniert die Raum Erkennung ja sehr gut, aber wollt ihr in Battlefield selber laufen? Es wäre zwar gut für eure Fitness, aber ihr wärt schon nach kurzer Zeit echt erschöpft. VR scheint doch nicht den Controller, oder Maus und Tastatur ablösen zu können, gerade aus kompetitiver Sicht. VR wird sich ohne Frage weiterentwickeln und seinen Markt haben, der Mainstream wird es aber nicht werden, dafür ist VR zu eingeschränkt, es sei denn es entwickelt sich ein fähiges Konzept zur Fortbewegung im Raum.   Oder ist es einfach nur die Auflösung die das nächste, große Ding ist? Klar, Auflösung spielt immer eine Rolle, und ich behaupte, 4K wird in Zukunft der Standard sein. Während unser TV Programm noch mit Full HD zu kämpfen hat, wird der Support eher von den Streaming Diensten und der Gaming Branche ausgehen. 4K TV’s sind bereits in Massen auf dem Markt und sind mittlerweile zu erschwinglichen Preisen erhältlich. Mit PS4 Pro, Xbox One X und dem PC sind zudem drei Geräte auf dem Markt, die 4K in den nächsten Jahren vorantreiben, bevor es mit der nächsten Konsolengeneration dann endgültig der Standard werden könnte. Es ist also nur eine Frage der Zeit. Aber die Art wie wir Games konsumieren wird es auch nicht ändern. Doch was bleibt?    Das Rezept ist die Eier legende Wollmilchsau. Ein Konzept, dass Immersion und Zugänglichkeit gewährleisten kann. Ist es vielleicht Augmented Reality? Nein auch das ist wieder mit Nachteilen verbunden. Die goldene Mitte nennt sich dagegen Mixed Reality, und das ist es, was unser nächstes großes Ding sein könnte. Zumindest Microsoft glaubt darin die Zukunft zu sehen, mit HoloLens hat man da bereits ein Produkt in den eigenen Reihen, auch arbeitet der Konzern hinter Azure Cloud, Xbox und Office mit Herstellern wie Dell, Lenovo oder HP an Mixed Reality Geräten für Windows 10. Hier verschmelzen AR und VR zusammen und  kompensieren die Nachteile beider Konzepte, dafür ist die Immersion natürlich nicht so extrem gut wie in VR, aber hier den roten Pfaden zu finden ist noch ein langer Weg. Denn Mixed Reality steckt noch nicht mal in den Kinderschuhen, was Microsoft mit der HoloLens auffahren möchte, ist quasi erst die Geburt. Wirklich ausgereift ist aber auch das Gerät nicht, so beeindruckend es anmutet und auch ist. Doch hier ein Gerät zu entwickeln, dass uns  etwas Immersion aus der VR Weltbringen kann, die reale Welt aber wie in AR beherrscht, und dann noch unser 3D wieder auferstehen lassen kann, scheint doch irgendwie ein interessanter Gedanke zu sein. Da die Immersion nicht so intensiv ist wie in VR, könnte unser bewährtes Steuerungskonzept sich vielleicht sogar darin eingliedern, ohne dass sich unser Hirn wegen Überlastung verabschiedet. Aber bis wir so weit sind, werden noch sehr, sehr viele Jahre ins Land ziehen, wenn es denn überhaupt so kommt. Ich halte dies aber trotz der zeitlichen Entfernung, für ein Konzept, das sowohl Alltag als auch Gaming Welt abdecken und bereichern kann, außer es fällt den VR Architekten ein Plan ein, unser Hirn zu überlisten. Wir dürfen daher gespannt sein, was die Zukunft bringt. Daher glaub ich nicht an die Frage, welches Konzept sich durchsetzen wird, sondern da ich hoffe und überzeugt bin, dass alle davon das Potenzial zu haben, stelle ich mir eher die Frage: Wann ist es denn soweit?

          HHCF Juvenile Hall Diary Day 2 and 3!!!    
HHCF Juvenile Hall Diary Day 2 & 3



OK, so my second day I go in and things get real intense, real fast. The kid with the tats who I played and tried to connect with came in tripping. One of the things about the hall is that things happen there that you don’t know about and cannot control. So even if you come in super positive the internal power struggles between the kids, staff and the kids within themselves can make things volotile.

He came in with another kid and though they were in my room there doing what I call “The ostrich thing.” That is when they pull their sweater over their head and put their head on their desk. I don’t tolerate that kinda activity.

I asked them to chill and show respect to the lesson and the time I’m sharing with them. Both sat back up. Later, he starts talking to his boy about street drama and his case. I remind him he needs to quiet up. He starts poppin’ off dropping n-bombs and stuff. I just calmly walked over to the door and had the JIO ‘s (like a CO for juve) come take him out. He was pretty negative on the way out, but the rest of the class was chill.

The rest of the DAY was chill to be honest. I must say though that the peanut butter colored walls and fluorescent lighting really messes with your sense of internal peace. We worked on how to use your rooks together and I showed them the famous Opera House Massacre game by Morphy and talked about the importance of consistence. “What is the queen sacrifice of your life? How seriously are you taking yourself, and your actions irrespective of who you think is ‘hating’ on you?”

They got it. The gaming that day was super positive and fun.

I had some great games with the kids who I played soft the day before. It was a nail biter from front to back.

Day 3



When came in the hall I had my first thoughts ready to go. The kids came in super positive. I told the JIO’s that I would not be taking the kid who was disrespectful from the day before. I opened by giving them some hard, straight talk to realign their collective purpose.

I wrote in huge letters on the whiteboard: INTELLIGENCE WITHOUT DISCIPLINE IS A CURSE!!!

I reminded them that I chose to be there. “ I struggled with drinking and I did a lot of stupid things in high school, but I never got caught” I told them. “ I dropped out, I had to teach myself the bulk of everything I’m doing today. But I need you to respect my time. If you are not interested in living better than you are, go back to your room.” I let the last sentence hang in the air to emphasize my seriousness.

“You know, between the games I hear you all talking about how the streets love you. How the block has your back. But when I come in the morning, I don’t see any of them in line to see you. Nobody is checking to kick it with you. Where all that hood love at?! I don’t see it” I spat defiantly. You should have seen their eyes. They were staring me down with a lot of raw emotion.

“We can’t have friends here. Only family!” one of the boys snapped back.

Before I could respond a JIO in the room with a voice like Barry White yelled out “So what?! Where y’all letters at? Ain’t nobody writing y’all. Keep it real! Nobody checkin’ for you.” Then he looked at me and nodded.

“The hood ain’t missing you. The block don’t miss you. The block don’t miss me. None of us are special and when we are gone, it keeps going on. My point of saying this is not to hurt your feelings. My point is to ask if that is a fact, why do some of you come into my class and waste my time and my knowledge and wisdom that I am trying to bring to you.?!” I was not yelling, but there was what Bruce Lee would call “emotional content”.

“For the rest of your life, it is unlikely that you gonna meet someone that knew Pac, knew The Jacka, knew Eazy and saw some of the greatest to ever do it- do their thing.” I was wearing a college sweatshirt. I pulled on the shirt at the shoulders and said “These colleges I speak at, I taught myself everything I speak on. I guest lecture there because of all the reading I did. All the hours I put in to get that knowledge. I bring it to you from a place of love because I know you don’t understand everything waiting for you outside.”

I paused to let that sink in.

“Most of you don’t even understand how you got here. I can tell you a little bit of how it happened. In 1967 the FBI rolled out to programs. One was called BLACKPRO and the other was called COINTELPRO. Both were aimed at undermiing Black leadership coast to coast. They had an army of 3,000 informants.”

Now before this keep in mind that J. Edgar Hoover, one of the early heads of the FBI was trying to get Black people to take heroin. But Blacks at the time did not like needles. This was back when most of your grandparents were young. In the 80’s White middle class and rich kids did cocaine powder- but Blacks did crack. Whites got short sentences for powder. Many Blacks and Latinos did life for crack.”

“Today, you kids are all taking syrup. Codeine, promethazine, percocet, etc. All of them are opiates- liquid heroin. You are living the dream that Hoover wanted for your grandparents.”

One of the kids interrupted me. “Stop talking about syrup so much. I want some right now.” a boy confessed without reservation. Despite being under 16 his favorite drink is percocets dissolved in Patron. So scary.

“Look” I continued “The closer you are to those drugs, the closer you are to making a mistake that will get you locked up. It is not an accident. Y’all are kids. Alcohol is illegal right? So how is it that billion dollar pharmaceutical companies are able to lose all this top grade syrup and it just happens to be available for cheap in your hood? How is it for sale by your homies at school. Because it is not an accident.”

I pointed to the a digital display of a chessboard. Right now, in the game of life, you are all in check. It is almost over for you. I hope you realize the seriousness of the times you are living in.” By now the room was pretty silent.

“What is the good thing about being in check though?” I asked the strongest Latino chess player.

“He nodded as he spoke to the class “There is still a way out.”

“EXACTLY!.I cried out. “ Exactly. There is still a way out. That is the blessing. I’m telling you now. Stay sober, study, play this game and find your way out. Let me do that for you. The game ain’t over. You can win this, but let me help you.”

From there we went into studying knights. The games were amazing. The one who admitted his addiction played the hardest and came a long way. Monday he did not know the how the pieces moved. Today he was losing, but he was checking people and growing with the game.

I lost a game to a kid after a foolish exchange. Tomorrow, I'm gonna go super hard. These kids are brilliant.

I took some photos of some of the games that got played. I cannot take pics of their faces. But you see the high cognitive function of the kids. A lot of these teens are considered ADD or ADHD. But look at the high level cognitive function happening. Kids this smart should be recruited by Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter and Oracle. They don’t need to hire folks from Asia, India, Africa and China. They can go to NY, LA, Chicago and St. Louis and raise American minds to do this work. Fantastic American genius is being abandoned everyday simply because they were born Black, Brown or poor. Our technology companies need to take big steps to fix this.

I love these moments. I love these opportunities and I thank you for taking the time to read this blog.



PARENTS: Below is a huge song called “Mask Off” by Future that openly promotes the use of “molly” percocets and other opiates to our kids. This style is called Trap Music. The trap is, that if the kids soak in songs like these it leads them to the trap of addiction. I love Hip-Hop. But old school music always had a balanced dialogue. All the popular music on the radio and TV these days is sadly in this vein. Peep the beauty of the melody. IT is an amazingly well produced track. If I didn’t know better, I’d think Future was hired by Hoover.

This 50" class Samsung 4K flat TV was listed at some deal sites as $599.99 but I checked early this morning once the new coupons were in effect at Costco's site the price showed online as $529.99:
https://www.costco.com/Samsung-50%22-Class-(49.5%22-Diag.)-4K-Ul...

I wondered if the store was selling at 599.99 while it was 529.99 online so I went in.

The old black and white sign by the pallet said $679.99 but there was a red and white sign saying $599.99.

I showed a print out of the online $529.99 to the electronics person and she immediately walked to customer service and came back with new $529.99 signs!

I was planning on spending 599.99 so this was a very pleasantly $70 surprise savings.

Note, the TV comes with a $30 Google Play Credit and gets an excellent review as a gaming monitor at Rtings.com. Also, Consumer Reports rates it 4th for 46-52" TVs.

Many accessories are available for your cell phone. When it comes to mobile phone accessories, you'll never run of variety of things you can add in order to make your phone look good, perform better or prevent some early onset of damage. A cell phone cover for instance, aids in preventing this early damage to your phone. There are other things you can purchase and this post is designed to briefly discuss just a few of these many things you can acquire for your dear unit.

Give your cell phone a new look with your graduation tassel. I would recommend tying the graduation tassel onto the cell phone instead of gluing it as most have recommended. You could actually take off the hand piece to your Motorola DP2400e and use your graduation tassel in its place if you like.

In addition, we have begun to take these Motorola radios hunting with us since the land we hunt on is huge and we like to know when people leave. Which can be a great time saver when somebody leaves so you're not walking through the woods trying to find someone who is not there.

Another motorola radios accessories you can take care of your phone is reducing energy consumption. Battery conservation is performed using as little energy as possible. If you are using the camera, the flash is not necessary most of the time. Then turn off all unnecessary programs such as Bluetooth, run applications and other systems. The brightness can be adjusted. Turn it down to the lowest level that still feels comfortable for you to deal with the phone.

Keeping Communication Channel Is Important When You Are On The Water - Setting sail with cloth or a motor can be exhilarating, but staying in touch with the rest of the party, as well as safety services on shore, can be a lifesaver. motorola dp2400e radio is some of the boating equipment every boat operator should have along with other pieces of marine equipment that can help boaters find their way back to the dock. Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment is one of them. It can help others find you if your radio malfunctions. GPS is considered as an important piece of boating equipment for everyone on the water.

The game is quick and frantic and shows just how much unboxing review modern fighters rely on their planes special gadgets and high tech systems and less on their skills but the H.A.W.X game adds more to this. There is an Enhanced Reality System that allows you to do things like slide around turns and perform maneuvers that are physically impossible in the real world.

Yes, you will spend less. However, such a case will start looking miserable in a couple of weeks. Moreover, it will not provide your expensive smartphone with the required level of protection. As a result, your smartphone may just slip out of the case! Let's not even think of what might happen to a delicate hi-end device like iPhone or any of the Samsung Galaxy devices.

At first glance, walking onto the showroom floor can be overwhelming. In order to get the most out of your day, you need to have a plan of action. So, what's the best way to get the most out of a boat show?

Today you can even buy a pair of these two-way radios through Amazon for roughly $40, which is a lot less than what I paid for ours. I am certain that there are probably hundreds of different ways that you can use these Motorola radios and these Motorola radios are actually a good quality unit.

          Nintendo Shuts Down “Donkey Kong” Remake For Roku   

Many gaming fans love to play old arcade games through emulators or remakes, but Nintendo is less amused by fan-made recreations. This week the company took down a remake of the 1981 classic Donkey Kong, as it infringes its copyrights. The developer of the remake is disappointed but doesn't plan to challenge Nintendo's request.

One excellent review because you spoke to three distinct readers. and you did so as an expert! I am a gaming geek and you clearly understand the hardware required to game. Video processing is critical and sufficient ram is important too. You put your emphasis there and that told me you know what you are talking about. I would most likely buy your bargain basement build because you know your hardware. thank you for the great review and better advice!

          The Dizzy Feet Foundation to Celebrate National Dance Day   

The Dizzy Feet Foundation (DFF), co-founded by Nigel Lythgoe and Adam Shankman, is proud to announce that the 8th annual National Dance Day (NDD) will take place on Saturday, July 29 at Grand Park in Los Angeles, co-presented by The Music Center, and in Washington D.C., hosted by the Kennedy Center. The event continues the ongoing alliance of some of the nation's leading cultural organizations, which once again join together to promote the benefits and joy of dance for everyone. YouTube Red joins National Dance Day as the 2017 Title Sponsor.

In Washington, D.C., National Dance Day is celebrated with free, family-friendly events open to all. Beginning at 2 p.m. and featuring special guest dancers, interactive dance lessons, and performances in a wide variety of dance styles, as well as the official National Dance Day routine for this year's event, is led by a well-known dance star, to be announced. This performance coincides with the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, the Center's free, daily performance series. At 7:30 p.m., Dancing Under the Stars begins with a beginner-level swing dance lesson by Gottaswing, followed by two hours of dancing with The Tom Cunningham Orchestra. All are free and open to the public. For more information, visit http://www.kennedy-center.org/.

In Los Angeles, The Music Center partners with The Dizzy Feet Foundation to present the West Coast's flagship free celebration of National Dance Day for the sixth year, featuring a dance extravaganza with both performances and participatory elements. The event takes place in Grand Park in Downtown Los Angeles from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Dance lovers will experience some of Los Angeles' best dance companies, and enjoy music and dancing in the Grand Park fountain. For more information, visit https://www.musiccenter.org/ndd.

The Los Angeles and Washington D.C. events include dance workshops for all ages and skill levels. There will be performances and information from a range of community dance organizations. The public is invited to attend both events; admission and all activities are free of charge.

Annually as its official contribution to National Dance Day, The Dizzy Feet Foundation produces and distributes an instructional video online for people to view, learn and share with others, wherever they are. The Dizzy Feet Foundation encourages anyone and everyone to learn the routines and perform them on National Dance Day. The Dizzy Feet Foundation also encourages the public to submit videos of themselves performing the routines. Executive Director Danae Rees leads The Dizzy Feet Foundation.

This year, The Dizzy Feet Foundation is proud to partner with YouTube Red to create the Accessible Routine. Featuring Jade Chynoweth and Carlito Olivero from the new YouTube Red original series Step Up: High Water, this fun simple routine is easy for everyone to learn. Along with series choreographer, Jamaica Craft, the cast will break down the choreography to District 78's, "Shake, Wiggle, Move".

The video can be watched here: https://youtu.be/2j3fyLMQVTc

Executive Director Rees said, "We look forward to having the public attend our events in Los Angeles and Washington D.C. However, we have also designed National Dance Day, so that it is accessible to everyone at every ability level, and everywhere in the country. National Dance Day offers free access to dance, that's diverse and inclusive, and encourages participants to celebrate the art of dance through movement. We have a sponsor this year, YouTube Red, that helped us bring National Dance Day to everyone."

"Dance is wildly popular on YouTube, and we are thrilled to partner with Adam Shankman, Nigel Lythgoe and The Dizzy Feet Foundation to bring a routine inspired by moves from our upcoming drama series 'Step Up: High Water' to National Dance Day Celebrations around the country," said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content, YouTube.

National Dance Day is for everyone. In addition, those creating their own National Dance Day event can register their event on a national list for others to seek out and celebrate NDD. Be creative! Host a NDD Fundraising Event to raise money for The Dizzy Feet Foundation and help support its mission to provide access to dance: organize a Flash Mob in your area or host a dance-a-thon or raise money for kids to have more access to dance. National Dance Day has a strong online presence, allowing everyone to participate no matter where they are located. Information on how to become an official National Dance Day event and submitting National Dance Day videos can be found on The Dizzy Feet Foundation's website, http://dizzyfeetfoundation.org/national-dance-day/.

Established in 2010 by Dizzy Feet co-founder and So You Think You Can Dance co-creator Nigel Lythgoe, National Dance Day is an annual celebration dedicated to dance, that encourages Americans of all ages to incorporate dance into their lives. By creating a focused day of celebration, The Dizzy Feet Foundation aims to educate the public about dance and its many benefits, as well as make dance accessible and inclusive to everyone.

The Dizzy Feet Foundation believes that participation in dance connects the mind and body, promotes health and wellbeing, connects us with others and enables us to find joy through movement. National Dance Day is a day of celebrating dance, in all its forms, and takes place annually on the last Saturday in July.

National Dance Day achieved national recognition when Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), a long-time proponent of healthy lifestyles, announced at a press conference on July 31, 2010, in Washington, D.C., that she was introducing a congressional resolution declaring the last Saturday in July to be the country's official National Dance Day.

Getting the Nation Dancing - How to get involved

Central to The Dizzy Feet Foundation's mission, is increasing exposure to dance in all its forms, as well as highlighting dance's many benefits. National Dance Day supports the realization of this mission by encouraging community partners across the United States to become involved and engaged. Through this grassroots campaign, The Dizzy Feet Foundation hopes to encourage Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to move their bodies, maintain good health and bring joy to their lives.

Since National Dance Day is for everyone, The Dizzy Feet Foundation also encourages the public to create their own celebratory National Dance Day events in their communities, local schools, studios, neighbors, and businesses. Participation grows every year; in recent years there have been events registered in 35 states and online participation in the millions, through participants uploading and sharing their National Dance Day videos.

The public can register their events on The Dizzy Feet National Directory of Events; organizers of registered events receive a Community Information Pack with information and tips to help you get your celebrations underway, and an official National Dance Day poster recognizing you as an official supporter of National Dance Day 2017.

Those registering events then become official National Dance Day supporters and part of a national dance community of dancers, choreographers, and students. Participants also help Dizzy Feet provide greater access to dance education for youth in underserved communities. Once registered, share details of your event and let people know how you're celebrating National Dance Day 2017.

About The Dizzy Feet Foundation

Producer Nigel Lythgoe and director Adam Shankman founded The Dizzy Feet Foundation in 2009 to:

? Increase access to high-quality dance education across the United States, through the community programs it funds.

? Support dance programs that provide an outlet for creative expression, benefiting children with life skills that go beyond dance class.

? Increase appreciation for dance, the art of dance, and movement.

? Share the benefits and joy of dance, particularly to those who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to experience it.

Funding received through sponsorships and donations on National Dance Day provide the necessary support for our Community Programs. The Dizzy Feet Foundation makes grants to community organizations and other tax-exempt entities in the United States, providing dance education programs to children in underserved communities within the US. Through its grant recipients, The Dizzy Feet Foundation seeks to give children the experience of dance, educate them about the many styles of dance, and to expose them to the lifelong benefits that dance has to offer.

To date, The Dizzy Feet Foundation community grants have:

? Provided support to 67 dance programs in 25 states with $1 million in funding grants.

? Given access to the life-long benefits of dance to 150,000+ children.

? 82% of those served are from underserved communities.

? Supported dance programming in schools through after-school instruction and social service agencies.

The Dizzy Feet Foundation also supports community programs offered by libraries, community centers, parks & recreation centers, social service agencies, and after-school programs. Grants are awarded to other 501(c)(3) and governmental organizations, not to individuals or for-profit corporations. The Dizzy Feet Foundation also awards scholarships to talented individual students studying at dance schools, universities and institutions, based on talent and financial need.

Partners & Sponsors

National Dance Day celebrations could not happen without the generous support of our Partners & Sponsors who help The Dizzy Feet Foundation promote greater access to dance for all. We are grateful for the continued partnership with our official Host Venues, The Music Center in Los Angeles and The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.

2000 – Dr. Alan chow and brother Vincent announced they successfully placed a silicon microchip beneath human retinas. The chip is smaller than the head on a pin and only microns thin. These chips also contain solar cells to help power the chip.

In what is called “Optobionics”, the ASR chip is inserted behind the retina in the “subretinal space”. This is a 2 hour procedure and the chip can last up to 8 years after (depending on care).

          U.S. Loyalty Programs See Double-Digit Growth   

CINCINNATI -- U.S. consumers hold 3.8 billion memberships in customer loyalty programs, according to the 2017 Colloquy Loyalty Census.

The 3.8 billion tabulation shows membership growth continues, but it has slowed to 15% compared to the 26% growth rate achieved in the 2015 census, when total memberships were 3.3 billion.

“The membership growth slowdown signals the U.S. loyalty market is maturing and retailers need to up their game on how to attract and retain members within their loyalty programs,” said Melissa Fruend, LoyaltyOne Global Solutions partner and Colloquy Census author. “In order to improve loyalty marketing, brands must optimize the overall experience by creating more personalized and relevant experiences for their best customers.”

The new consumer survey research from the 2017 census shows that 53% of U.S. consumers identified “easy to use” as the main reason for participating in a loyalty program, topping “gives me great discounts” (39%) and “easy to understand” (37%), among other reasons.

Conversely, the top reason given for abandoning a program was “it took too long to earn points or miles;” a concern cited by 57% of respondents.

Also, the Colloquy census shows 51% of Americans still trust loyalty programs with their personal information.

The latest Colloquy census scratched beyond the surface and analyzed motivators that drive consumer loyalty behavior. The survey research shows that across all sectors, the top motivator is, “I love the brand, company, retailer or service.”

In other census results, the retail sector accounts for 1.6 billion reward-program memberships, making it the largest slice of the loyalty pie. The biggest driver for active participation within retail is that the program is “easy to understand.”

Notably, grocery program memberships dropped to 142 million, compared to 188 million in 2015, continuing a downward trend in three consecutive census reports. The 24% decrease is due in part to mergers and acquisitions within the industry.

Memberships in the financial-services sector continued an upward trend, rising to 664 million vs. 578 million in 2015. Cash-back incentives led the pack when respondents were asked why they participate in financial loyalty programs.

The travel and hospitality sector, covering airline and hotel programs, plus restaurant, car-rental, cruise line and gaming programs, accounts for 1.1 billion memberships, the 2017 census shows.

One of the most dynamic loyalty sectors, identified as other/emerging, covers online-only offerings, entertainment, daily deals, point aggregators and card-linked offers. Census research shows U.S. consumers hold a total of 462 million memberships in these evolving programs, and this sector accounts for 12% of the U.S. loyalty market.

Now in its 27th year, Cincinnati-based Colloquy is a publishing, education and research practice, bringing together loyalty practitioners from around the world. Colloquy is the first publication dedicated expressly to the art and science of loyalty marketing. Colloquy is an independently operated division of LoyaltyOne.

Toronto-based LoyaltyOne is a global leader in the design and implementation of coalition loyalty programs, customer analytics and loyalty services.

          Game of Thrones Season 5 Product Showcase, part 1: Upcoming Game of Thrones Monopoly Set   
Greetings to all fans of HBO's amazing GAME OF THRONES series, meticulously adapted from the spectacular book series by George R.R. Martin. After tuning in to the first new episode on Sunday, I know that fans around the globe just can't get enough of Westeros and the amazing action that takes place there.

As a blogger who talks about books and popular culture, I was thrilled when I was invited to the HBO offices in midtown Manhattan to see the collection of upcoming licensed products tied to the HBO series, and they had many of the current and coming soon products on display. I plan to post a few times to focus on each of the product categories, but felt the premiere post should feature the new GoT Monopoly set which will be coming next month, in May, and which looks amazing.

All products are or will be available the online HBO shop in the US (store.hbo.com) and EU (hboshopeu.com), and the HBO shop in NYC on 6th Avenue & 42nd Street, and at retail outlets around the world. Get them while you can.


Here are a few product pictures of the upcoming Game of Thrones Monopoly set coming in May 2015. There are some very cool game pieces, which I've tried to get a few close ups of, see pictures below.

Stay tuned for more in the following days. 


The complete Game of Thrones Monopoly board with other gaming products lined up on the left and back. It looks like a very cool set.
