Discord was down due to Cloudflare and Verizon issues

Popular chat service Discord experienced issues today due to network problems at Cloudflare and a wider internet issue caused by Verizon. The app was inaccessible for its millions of users, and even Discord’s website and status pages were struggling. Discord’s problems could be traced to problems at Cloudflare, a content delivery network. Cloudflare started experiencing issues at 7:43AM ET, and this caused Discord, Feedly, Crunchyroll, and many other sites that rely on its services to have partial outages. Cloudflare said it was working on a “possible route leak” affecting some of its network, but services like Discord were inaccessible for more than an hour. “Discord is affected by the general internet outage,” said a Discord statement… Read the full article…

Black Mesa: Xen Aims to Fix Half-Life 1’s Weakest Part

Many gamers consider Half-Life 2 to be Valve’s greatest achievement and one of the best games ever made. I, for one, have always preferred the original Half-Life. With no disrespect to Alyx, Dog, or the gravity gun, the mystery of the Black Mesa facility, the slow onion-peeling reveal of one weird layer after another, the mystery of the G-Man and, lest many forget, the two endings(!) that the original delivered always left a more lasting impression for me. But what knocks Half-Life 1 down a peg for a lot of folks – and this is hard to argue against – is a particular part of the campaign: Xen. The alien dimension is placed right near the end of Gordon Freeman’s Excellent Science Adventure, and it was…a let-down, for sure, after the GOAT-quality experience up until that point.

Cyberpunk 2077 Will Feature Romance Plotlines Similar to The Witcher 3

UPDATE (6/24/19) – Pawe? Sasko answered another question via a Twitter direct message and, this time, it was focused all on how important romances will be in Cyberpunk 2077. Posted on Reddit by u/Magired1234, Sasko confirmed that romances will be returning in a similar fashion as they were seen in The Witcher 3. As explained by Sasko, “there were whole plotlines regarding character and if that NPCs were treated well and interested in Geralt, something was happening.” According to Sasko, this will be “very similar” in Cyberpunk 2077, and “of course players will have way more options then only heterosexual, as it was in the Witcher 3 (as Geralt was a defined character that was only interested in females).” Read the full article…

What I Learned From Designing AR Apps

What I Learned From Designing AR Apps What I Learned From Designing AR Apps Gleb Kuznetsov 2019-06-24T12:00:59+02:002019-06-24T11:05:59+00:00 The digital and technological landscape is constantly changing — new products and technologies are popping up every day. Designers have to keep track of what is trending and where creative opportunities are. A great designer has the vision to analyze new technology, identify its potential, and use it to design better products or services. Among the various technologies that we have today, there’s one that gets a lot of attention: Augmented Reality. Companies like Apple and Google realize the potential of AR and invest significant amounts of resources into this technology. But when it comes to creating an AR experience, many designers find themselves in unfamiliar territory. Does AR require a different kind of UX and design process? As for me, I’m a big fan of learning-by-doing, and I was lucky enough to Read the full article…

Perchang looks like Portal, but is more like Lemmings

It can be difficult to find time to finish a video game, especially if you only have a few hours a week to play. In our biweekly column Short Play we suggest video games that can be started and finished in a weekend. A level of Perchang in motion looks like a Rube Goldberg machine. You might see little soccer balls flying around the screen being blown by giant turbines, or maybe they’re hit with paddles out of a pinball machine. Playing Perchang puts you in control of that Rube Goldberg machine. Though it feels a lot like a simplified version of the classic puzzle game Lemmings, and it’s just as difficult. The conceit of both Perchang and Lemmings is that there’s a steady stream of something flowing into the puzzle space. In Perchang i… Read the full article…
