Yoshi’s Crafted World is classic gaming joy, Nintendo-style

In 1995, Yoshi had his moment. The character’s Super Mario World debut was so strong, Nintendo handed the dinosaur sidekick his own sequel. A surprise divergence from the Mario franchise found the character escorting a baby version of the plumber in search of his kidnapped twin. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island was regarded as an instant classic for the Super Nintendo. The positive reaction was due, in part, to some bold aesthetic choices. The game featured a shaky line style, both in keeping with the playful infant motif and to further highlight that the title wasn’t just another Mario game. Yoshi’s island has received a number of its own sequels and spinoffs over the years. This is, after all, Nintendo we’re talking about here. The company has turned riding out IP into a kind of art form. But while many of those followups were generally well-received, but none managed Read the full article…

Sega’s Genesis/Mega Drive Mini arrives in September

Whether you call it the Genesis or the Mega Drive, Sega’s 16 bit system holds a special place in the hearts of many a gamer who came of age in the 80s and 90s. Like the NES and Super Nintendo before it, the console that gave us a ring-hoarding hedgehog is about to get miniaturized. Sega announced the Genesis/Mega Drive Mini last year, only to delay sales in order to fine tune the retro console. This week at Sega Fest, however, the once-mighty game maker firmed up the machine’s release date — and game selection. The Mini is due out just ahead of the holidays on September 19, carrying 40 pre-installed titles. Along with the release date, the company announced a quarter of the titles, carrying some familiar names like Sonic the Hedgehog, Ecco the Dolphin, Altered Beats and ToeJam and Earl (full list below). When it hits, the system Read the full article…

Rundown Of Gen Z: What Does This Mean For Mobile Designers?

Rundown Of Gen Z: What Does This Mean For Mobile Designers? Rundown Of Gen Z: What Does This Mean For Mobile Designers? Suzanne Scacca 2019-03-29T12:30:08+01:002019-03-30T11:05:37+00:00 Just a few years ago, design blogs were all abuzz with tips on how to build websites for the millennial consumer. At this point, however, that’s old news. We know what millennials want from the online experience and have, for the most part, been able to meet their expectations. But now we have a new generation of consumers to worry about: Generation Z. Are they all that different from millennials? As an old millennial myself, I can tell you that this next generation is one I don’t feel much of a connection to. I can remember a time when the most exciting part of my day was when my mom got off the phone and I was able to finally connect to the Internet with Read the full article…

20 years for swatter who got a man killed

Tyler Barriss, a prolific and seemingly unremorseful repeat swatter and bomb hoaxer whose fakery got a man killed in 2017, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. This hopefully closes the book on a long and disturbing career of random and mercenary harassment and threats. Not to linger on the crimes committed by Barriss, but to refresh your memory: Barriss accumulated dozens of charges generally relating to calling in fake threats in order to get police or SWAT called to a location or shut it down. Among his bomb threat targets was the FCC, which had to clear the room during a major net neutrality vote because of a call Barriss made. Nearly at the same time, as part of a conflict relating to a $1.50 Call of Duty bet, he called the police claiming he was armed and had shot his father, and was at an address in Read the full article…

Valve just surprise revealed its own VR headset called the Valve Index

Unexpectedly on a Friday night, Valve has surprise launched a teaser site featuring a brand-new virtual reality headset, called the Valve Index, that appears to be a device of its own making and not one in partnership with its longtime VR partner HTC. The teaser site spotted by Ars Technica offers no information other than that the Index’s supposed release date is May 2019. That said, there’s actually an awful lot we can see in that image, and a lot we can piece together from previous Valve leaks. We can see the Valve Index has as many as four prominent wide-angle cameras, strongly suggesting that, like the Oculus Quest and other second-gen VR headsets, it will have inside-out tracking to allow players to move around a room without… Read the full article…

Battlefield V’s Firestorm is a harsh and chaotic take on battle royale

My first impression of Battlefield V’s battle royale mode Firestorm wasn’t the action — it was the silence. I heard very little but the sound of my own boots on the snow, the reloading of my gun, and the breath of my soldier as my crosshairs were locked on a window across the road. As a longtime fan of the franchise, I’ve become used to the constant sounds of gunfire, tanks, and objective callouts; the collapsing skyscrapers and the massive explosions of the V-1 rocket. Battlefield is beautiful chaos. When I dropped into Firestorm, however, it was still. At least for a few moments. Firestorm successfully captures the essence of ‘Battlefield’ in the battle royale format With millions of players dropping in and billions of dollars being… Read the full article…
