Editorial Design Patterns With CSS Grid And Named Columns Editorial Design Patterns With CSS Grid And Named Columns Rachel Andrew 2019-10-04T12:30:00+02:002019-10-05T11:07:37+00:00 Many websites, in particular those which display long-form content, have a fairly straightforward repeating pattern of components: a full-width area for images, a central content area, and perhaps a split view of two half-width blocks. These components repeat to display an article, images and other related content — with content editors selecting the right component as they create articles for publication. In this article, I’m going to demonstrate an approach to this kind of editorial design, which builds on a few techniques some of which are discussed in the following articles: “Breaking Out With CSS Grid Layout” “Breaking Out With CSS Grid Explained” “Naming Things In CSS Grid Layout” In addition to this being a nice way to name sections of your layout, this technique exposes a whole bunch Read the full article…

Amid AR/VR experiments, Apple buys UK visual effects studio

Apple has reportedly acquired U.K. special effects studio IKinema, a startup that may be useful in Apple’s quest to bolster its mobile devices with AR special effects and in its more far-flung attempts to enter the AR/VR headset market. The company issued its standard confirmation for the deal to TechCrunch “Apple buys smaller companies from time to time, and we generally don’t discuss our purpose or plans.” The news was first reported by FT after rumors were floated by MacRumors. . IKenema has used motion-tracking work to live-animate the bodily movements of digital characters, but the team has also stockpiled this information to create realistic models of movements of digital characters in digital environments, specifically in the context of games and virtual reality titles. These models were highlighted in the startup’s RunTime product that integrated into game engines like Epic Games’ Unreal Engine. RunTime was powering avatar interactions in experiences Read the full article…

Square Enix’s Avengers game looks like Destiny with superheroes

Square Enix’s Avengers game has been years in the making — but so far, all it’s had to show has been a canned demo of the game’s tutorial that has left many more skeptical than impressed. But at New York Comic Con, Square Enix gave a fresh look at Avengers that proves there’s more to it than just a very expensive tie-in to the popular Marvel films. First, the news. At its NYCC panel today, the company announced a sixth playable hero that will be available at launch: Ms. Marvel — aka Kamala Khan — who’ll actually be the protagonist of Avengers, working to get the team back together to face a new threat. Marvel Games also announced a release date for the PSVR exclusive Iron Man VR, which will be out on February 28th next year. More… Read the full article…

Ninja left Twitch because his brand was too big for gaming

JOHANNES EISELE/AFP/Getty Images Tyler “Ninja” Blevins’ surprising departure from Twitch came after months of feeling like the company didn’t respect his wishes and hindered his ability to grow outside of gaming. But Blevins’ manager and wife, Jessica Blevins, told Business Insider that Tyler’s decision to leave Twitch and move over to the Microsoft-owned streaming service Mixer in August wasn’t just a financial one. Twitch’s contract with Tyler as it pertained to outside brand deals was too restrictive, Blevins said. Twitch effectively was limiting Tyler’s ability to grow as more than just a gaming personality on the platform, she argued. Since leaving Twitch, Tyler has scored major deals with companies like Adidas, and has a small role in Ryan Reynolds’ new movie, F… Read the full article…

Monster Hunter World is getting a truly bizarre Resident Evil crossover

Back in September, Monster Hunter World received its first — and only — major expansion in the form of the frigid Iceborne. But that doesn’t mean the game isn’t still getting updates. In fact, in November, World will receive arguably its strangest new content to date with a crossover featuring the undead world of Resident Evil. The trailer for the crossover starts out normal enough, introducing Resident Evil mainstays Leon and Claire as playable characters. But then things get strange. There are now zombified hunters and monsters in World, along with a space that looks like a winter cabin mixed with a Resident Evil mansion. There’s even a “Thriller”-style zombie dance. The trailer ends with none other than Resident Evil 2’s notorious… Read the full article…

9 Snack-Based “Advergames” That Didn’t Suck

2019 continues to be the weirdest year yet, with Wendy’s announcing a full-blown D&D-inspired tabletop RPG campaign that literally nobody was asking for (but was actually not half bad). But this isn’t the first time the food and beverage industry has crossed over into gaming. Known as “Advergames”, these bizarre corporate mash-ups have been around since the early ‘80s, with titles such as Pepsi Invaders and Kool-Aid Man for the Atari 2600. So, let’s welcome our new corporate overlords as we look back on some of the more memorable (or…not so memorable) advergames over the years. Read the full article…
