Escaping from Toronto’s Riddle Room

Ever wanted to be trapped in a room, with only an hour to escape? And then wind down with some board games and classic video games? One of Toronto’s coolest cafes, Riddle Room, has got you covered. Riddle Room’s logo Located on Yonge Street, right next to Wellesley Station, Riddle Room is easy to locate. When you walk in, you’re greeted by a cafe with plenty of games to play. After checking in with the front desk, my friends and I ordered some hot drinks to relax with. We were called upon in a timely fashion, and led to the escape room we had chosen. My friends and I had never gone to an escape room before, and there was 5 of us total. We received the recommendation from one of the employees over the phone to try out the room “Mystery Anatomy,” in which the player is searching for their missing brother Read the full article…

My Arcade’s wireless NES Classic controller is excellent

Ever since Nintendo launched its NES Classic Edition with the included hilariously short-cabled controller, third-parties have come up with their own solutions. But My Arcade is potentially the best. The My Arcade GamePad Classic wireless controller is an ideal solution for nostalgic gamers who want to enjoy their NES Classic without having to sit on the floor or drag a cable across the room. You can get one for just $15. What you’ll like Feels great The best thing about the My Arcade GamePad is that it feels right when you’re playing games. I previously reviewed the 8Bitdo wireless NES Classic controller, and it was fine — but using the My Arcade alternative made me realize how imperfect 8Bitdo’s gamepad really is. The My Arcade controller is bigger and bulkier than a standard NES pad, and that makes it more comfortable to hold. On top of that, the D-pad and Read the full article…

InterActions ~ What is a Video Game?

Orioto ~Before the Jump, Zelda: A Link to the Past Suggested Soundtrack?—?Illusion of Gaia ~The Age of Exploration (1993), Yasuhiro Kawasaki Let me be honest with you. I have not had the chance to read much about Video Games, English is not my mother tongue?—?obviously?—?and I do not appreciate all genres of games. But I have read a lot about literature and I have played more hours than my four eyes should have borne. From my experience emerged one conviction: Video Game is the present & the future of creation and Interactivity is its muse. Wait What? Video Game is an Art? Yeah… I know it’s a big deal and I will not be able tackle every aspects of the question in this article. Even some of the very people who won Cinema’s acceptance as an Art almost one century ago are still full of contempt when it comes to the 10th Art. I will Read the full article…

Toast’s PlayStation 4 Pro wood paneling is a time-warp to the Atari 2600

REVIEW: I respect wood, and you better not set a drink on my PlayStation 4 Pro without using a coaster. Toast, the company that makes custom-fitted real wood panels for electronics, has added a product that fits the PlayStation 4 Pro. For $50, you can class up your console, and that’s exactly what I did with mine. The Portland, Oregon-based Toast cuts the panels from the same piece of real wood, and that means the grain will match, and you the end result won’t end up looking like cheap decals. Instead, you’ll come away with a piece of electronics that is beautiful and unique. What you’ll like Easy to apply and looks professional Once you pick out the type of wood you want from Toast, the company will send you a thin package with everything you need. Then it’s just a matter of following the simple instructions. I was able Read the full article…

AOC introduces a more affordable 32-inch 4K monitor for gaming

It’s probably still not time for most people to ditch their 1080p displays for a new 4K monitor, but doing that is going to make a lot more sense in 2017 than it did in 2016 thanks to competitively priced new products. AOC, a major LCD and LED monitor and television manufacturer, announced its new 32-inch 4K monitor today. The set, which AOC is calling the U3277PWQU (a charming name), will sell for $700 and work well in a number of use-case scenarios. But if $700 is still a bit on the expensive side for you, AOC is making a push to give the display a big start by selling it at a discounted $500 through B&H Photo Video’s website. That could make this one of the most affordable high-end 32-inch monitors for PC gamers. “The AOC U3277PWQU features 4K UHD resolution and a VA panel for high responsiveness and Read the full article…

THE CRYSIS HUD PROJECT

So here I am, playing a very popular FPS game, and the mandatory sniper/stealth mission in the single player campaign comes up. Not shedding another thought, I start tagging all the enemies in the area using the zoom scope of the gun thinking to myself ‘Dude, this will never happen in real life…, or will it?’. The mission is now complete and its time to answer the question: Can I tag objects and keep a track of them in real time using just the zoom lens of a gun? Simply put yes, and using my knowledge as an AI researcher, the technology requires the following puzzle pieces: Object Detection Object Recognition Distance calculation Object Tracking 3D mapping The closest thing with the same requirements, you guessed it, are Self-driving cars just refined to work with very small objects which in theory can be easy done with ConvNets. Better get cracking and develop a Read the full article…

you should play owlboy as soon as you’re able to if you like 2d action platformers that feel snappy and good owlboy plays fantastically well with its dual analogue controls. it feels incredibly snappy and fluid. you can tell the developers got influnced by action platformers of old that focused on allowing cool player movement the game has a great child-friendly adventureous tone with good world-building and characters to talk to, interact with and control. i was pretty engaged with what was going on. otis, the main character is a good bird boy and has good friends. the hi-bit asethtics took time to produce and it shows, most games don’t and can’t look like this. together with live instruments in the well-composed music, what you’re seeing and hearing gives a lot of heft to what you’re playing. most of the game is not that hard. moments of difficulity will only keep you around momentarily, Read the full article…

Xbox One's Faster, Simpler Interface is Now Available To Everyone

Microsoft today announced it is releasing a major update to the Xbox One gaming console. The much-awaited update comes with a few new features and improvements such as Beam, the company’s livestreaming client that does similar things as Twitch; and a faster and simpler interface. From a report on Engadget: The March update centers around a redesigned interface that’s designed for speed above all else. It’s quicker to perform more than a few tasks, such as finding a group to join. The revamped Guide should be much quicker, too — it promises faster access to recent apps, background music controls and game recording. A few tweaks are designed with multitasking in mind, such as a brand new achievement tracker and a Cortana rework that puts the voice assistant into an overlay that won’t disrupt what you’re doing.

Playing Tetris Can Reduce Onset of PTSD After Trauma, Study Finds

Reader dryriver writes (slightly edited and condensed): CNN, citing a new study, reports that playing Tetris within hours of a traumatic event can reduce the onset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: After experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, such as a car accident, people are likely to develop anxiety or distress in relation to that event soon after the experience, leading to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). But a new study has shown that playing the computer game Tetris within hours of experiencing trauma can prevent those feelings from taking over your mind. PTSD occurs when intrusive memories linked to fear from a traumatic event become consolidated in a person’s mind by them visualizing the event in a loop until it becomes locked in their brain. Competing with the visualization, such as with a game like Tetris, can block that consolidation form happening. “An intrusive memory is a visual memory of Read the full article…

One in Five Mobile Phones Shipped Abroad Are Phoney

Nearly one-fifth of mobile phones and one-quarter of video game consoles shipped abroad are fake, according to a report by the the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The Register adds: The Trade in Counterfeit ICT Goods report, published ahead of the 2017 OECD Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum this month, identified a growing trend in fake goods. Smartphone batteries, chargers, memory cards, magnetic stripe cards, solid state drives and music players are also increasingly falling prey to counterfeiters. On average, 6.5 per cent of global trade in ICT goods is in counterfeit products, according to analysis of 2013 customs data, that is up from 2.5 per cent of overall traded goods found to be fake in a 2016 report. China is the primary source of fake ICT goods, and US manufacturers are the worst affected by lost revenue and erosion of brand value, the report said. Almost 43 Read the full article…

The Overwatch World Cup returns in 2017

The best Overwatch players from around the world will have another chance to shine on Blizzard’s biggest stage. The developer announced today that the Overwatch World Cup tournament will return in 2017. It will feature teams from the 32 most skilled countries in a tournament that will culminate at BlizzCon 2017. Overwatch launched last year and has become a big hit, partly thanks to its popularity in the competitive gaming world. It has over 25 million players across all its platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One (the tournament will use the PC versions). South Korea won last year’s tournament. Blizzard does not share the viewership numbers for BlizzCon or its tournaments. “Starting today, we will begin tracking the skill ratings of the top 100 players from every country to determine each country’s average rating,” Blizzard details on its blog. “Then, in April, we’ll use those average ratings to identify Read the full article…

Twitch starts streaming 1080p video at 60 frames per second

Livestreaming through Twitch should start to look a lot cleaner. Amazon’s broadcasting site revealed today that it is boosting its video quality to support the 1080p resolution at a full 60 frames per second. This is something it has enabled certain channels to do before, but it is rolling out new transcoding options that will permit anyone to take advantage of crisper image. To power such detailed images at such a high framerate, Twitch is also lifting it’s previous bitrate barrier. These updates will hit every Twitch channel over the next couple of weeks, and it is something that should improve the experience of using and viewing live videos on the site for the audience as a whole, not just viewers of esports events. “We’re no longer limiting our ingest bitrate to 3.5 megabits,” Twitch product manager Noreen McInnis wrote in a blog. “We officially recommend 3-to-6 megabits for most Read the full article…

Persona 5 makes a big, but easy-to-fix mistake

The review embargo has lifted, at last, so I can tell you that, yes, Persona 5 continues the 2017 trend of fantastic video games. I can also vent about the role-playing game’s most maddening design quirk, a mistake that I think could prevent it from reaching as broad an audience as it deserves. Persona 5 — a game largely about the overlap of the real and digital worlds — blocks players from sharing their experiences online by restricting the PlayStation 4’s screen capture, video clip, and social media features. To quickly summarize how sharing normally works on the PS4: a Share button on every PS4 controller allows a player to quickly take a screenshot or record a small chunk of gameplay. This button also allows players to easily post… Read the full article…

Stop Using Only One Mobile Game Monetization Strategy

In the early days of mobile gaming, developers only had two options to monetize their user base; they could sell their game for a one time purchase price through an online app store or they could negotiate with a device carrier or original equipment manufacturer (OEMs) to get their game preloaded on a device. Neither of these choices was very easy to do. As app stores and other mobile distribution channels began to mature, providing streamlined and quick solutions; mobile games began to flood the market. As competition grew, devs began competing on price, dropping their prices lower and lower until they had no choice but eliminate the one time purchase price and give their games away for free. Even if they eliminated the barrier to entry by removing the price, developers still had to make money. This was the beginning of the popular free to play model (F2P). In this Read the full article…
