Digging Into The Display Property: The Two Values Of Display Digging Into The Display Property: The Two Values Of Display Rachel Andrew 2019-04-08T13:00:59+02:002019-04-09T11:06:18+00:00 A flex or grid layout starts out with you declaring display: flex or display: grid. These layout methods are values of the CSS display property. We tend not to talk about this property on its own very much, instead concentrating on the values of flex or grid, however, there are some interesting things to understand about display and how it is defined that will make your life much easier as you use CSS for layout. In this article, the first in a short series, I’m going to take a look at the way that the values of display are defined in the Level 3 specification. This is a change to how we defined display in earlier versions of CSS. While it may seem unusual at first for Read the full article…

Roblox hits milestone of 90M monthly active users

Kids gaming platform Roblox, most recently valued at over $2.5 billion, has reached a new milestone of 90 million monthly active users, the company said on Sunday. That’s up from the 70 million monthly actives it claimed at its last funding round — a $150 million Series F announced last fall. The sizable increase in users is credited to Roblox’s international expansion efforts, and particularly its more recent support for the French and German languages. The top 150 games that run on the Roblox platform are now available in both languages, along with community moderation, customer support and parental resources. The gaming company also has been steadily growing as more kids join after hearing about it from friends or seeing its games played on YouTube, for example. Like Fortnite, it has become a place that kids go to “hang out” online even when not actively playing. The games themselves are Read the full article…

How a Seattle VR studio helped bring Epic Games’ ‘Robo Recall’ to the new Oculus Quest headset

Official key art for the Oculus Quest edition of Epic’s Robo Recall. (Oculus Images) A big story in the virtual reality market is the upcoming Oculus Quest, an all-in-one portable headset that lets users enjoy VR games without requiring a wired connection to another device. Like the Oculus Go, it’s a standalone product; unlike the Go, the Quest is specifically designed for a gaming audience, combining the Go’s portability with enough onboard horsepower to run games from the Oculus Rift’s library of titles. It’s planned for release in spring of this year. In London on Tuesday morning, journalists got their first chance to go hands-on with many of the debut titles for the Oculus Quest, including a ported version of Epic Games’s Robo Recall. Recall, one of the top VR shooters of 2017, is being brought to the Quest by Seattle’s Drifter VR. Drifter VR is a small team of Read the full article…

Razer’s Ripsaw HD capture card tries to challenge Elgato for entry-level game streaming

Razer is taking another shot at the streamer market with its updated Ripsaw HD capture card, which looks to challenge Elgato’s own entry-level HD60 S with a lower price and 4K video passthrough. Like the original Ripsaw, Razer’s goal with the Ripsaw HD is to make setting up a stream as simple as possible for streamers. To that end, basically everything is still built right into the Ripsaw HD, including a microphone and headphone jack for audio mixing. Making streaming as simple as possible Setup is equally simple: just plug in your console or gaming PC on one end of the HDMI input, a monitor for playing the game to the HDMI output, and your streaming PC through a USB-C port for passing along data to send to your viewers. (The Ripsaw HD… Read the full article…

Choosing Your Battles, Part 2

By Jonathan Walter UX designers often have limited influence in enterprise environments with relatively immature User Experience cultures. So exhausting your hard-earned capital with stakeholders on the wrong things can create unnecessary obstacles. In Part 1 of this two-part series, I presented the following scenarios in which it makes sense for UX designers to demonstrate some flexibility with their teammates and stakeholders: making aesthetic choices employing custom patterns and controls following a UX process managing teammates’ expectations using UX jargon defining the scope and timing of projects and features Now, in Part 2, I’ll consider scenarios that necessitate UX designers’ taking a firmer stance. Then, I’ll suggest some ways of deciding whether a particular situation befits your taking one course of action over another—acknowledging that the best approach can sometimes be ambiguous.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Review

While it’s since been followed by a string of sequels, crossovers, and spin-offs, the original Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy remains the most mechanically straightforward and narratively cohesive collection of games in the visual novel series to date. This compilation represents the first time that PlayStation and Xbox owners will be able to get a taste of the Ace Attorney series’ wonderfully absurd brand of pun-filled courtroom drama, but an absence of any new supplemental content or gameplay tweaks means it doesn’t make a compelling case for returning fans. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice For All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations collectively amount to around 60 hours of gameplay, with each game broken down into a series of individual trials comprised of several days of crime scene investigation, courtroom cross-examination, and no shortage of Phoenix Wright’s signature objection-raising desk slams.
