          'World of Warcraft Classic' is kind of agonizing      Cache   Translate Page      
TwitterFacebook

World of Warcraft Classic is delivering on its promise to bring back the original World of Warcraft experience, for better or worse.

I had a chance to play the World of Warcraft Classic demo at BlizzCon, rolling a level 15 Tauren shaman to try to recapture the experience of my youth. Kicking around in the arid Barrens zone that I remember from the good old days, I was struck by how foreign the game felt.

Since WoW first launched in 2004, a ton of changes have been made to the game. Of course there have been some visual upgrades and aesthetic changes, and then the expansion World of Warcraft: Cataclysm changed the actual landscape of many of the games' zones and storylines. Read more...

          Where the Trump Presidency Could Go in This Fever-Dream world of Ours in the Wake of Today’s Election      Cache   Translate Page      
A look at the age of Trump from November 2016 to November 2018 -- and beyond

Who could forget that moment?  The blue [red] wave -- long promised but also doubted -- had, however modestly [however massively], hit Washington and [the Democrats had just retaken Congress] [the Republicans had held Congress] [the Democrats had taken the House].  The media, Fox News and the usual right-wing websites aside, hailed the moment. [Fox News and the usual right-wing websites cheered the president on.] Donald Trump’s grip on America had finally been broken [reinforced].  Celebrations were widespread.  Congressional investigations, possibly even impeachment, were only months and a new Congress away [were now a faint memory], and it was then, of course, that the unexpected struck.  It was then that President Trump, citing national security concerns and a crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, began the process whose end point we, of course, already know...

Okay, consider that the dystopian me speaking.  We don’t, of course, really know how our story yet ends, not faintly.  While I was writing this piece, I didn’t even know how Tuesday’s vote would turn out, though by the time you read it, you may.  Given the experience of election 2016, it would take a brave [foolish] soul to make a prediction this time around.

I certainly learned a lesson that November.  During the previous months of campaigning that election season, I never wrote a piece at TomDispatch that didn’t leave open the possibility of Donald Trump winning the presidency.  In the couple of weeks before that fateful November day, however, I got hooked on the polling results and on Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight website and became convinced that Hillary Clinton was a shoo-in.

Of course, I was in good company.  As Michael Wolff would later report in his bestselling book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, on election eve, few in the Trump campaign, including the candidate himself, expected to win.  Most of them, again including The Donald, were already trying to parlay what they assumed was an assured loss into their next jobs or activities, including in the candidate’s case a possible “Trump network.”

So when, sometime after midnight, reality finally began to sink in -- fittingly enough, I had a 103-degree fever and was considering heading for an emergency room -- I was as disbelieving as the president-to-be. (He had, Wolff tells us, “assured” his wife, Melania, who was reportedly in tears of anything but joy that night, that he would never win and that she would never find herself in the White House.)  By then, it was for me a fever dream to imagine that bizarre, belligerent, orange-haired salesman-cum-con-artist entering the Oval Office.

Honestly, I shouldn’t have been the least bit surprised.  During election campaign 2016, I grasped much of this.  I wrote of the future president, for instance, as a con artist (particularly in reference to those taxes of his that we couldn’t see) and how Hillary Clinton’s crew hadn’t grasped the obvious: that many Americans would admire him for gaming the system, even if they couldn’t do the same themselves.  As I wrote at the time: “It’s something Donald Trump knows in his bones, even if all those pundits and commentators and pollsters (and for that matter Hillary Clinton’s advisers) don’t: Americans love a con man.”

I also saw that he was daring in ways unimaginable to an American politician -- because, of course, he wasn’t one -- particularly in promoting his slogan, MAGA, whose key word few of the political cognoscenti paid the slightest attention to: “again.”  At that moment, for presidents or politicians who wanted to become just that, it was obligatory to claim that the United States wasn’t just great but the greatest, most exceptional, most indispensable land ever.  (As Hillary Clinton typically put it that election season: “America is indispensable -- and exceptional -- because of our values.”)  Trump’s “again” in Make America Great Again suggested something quite different and so rang a bell in the heartland.  In the process, he became America’s first declinist presidential candidate. Early that October, I wrote this:

“[A] significant part of the white working class, at least, feels as if, whether economically or psychologically, its back is up against the wall and there’s nowhere left to go.  Under such circumstances, many of these voters have evidently decided that they’re ready to send a literal loose cannon into the White House; they’re willing, that is, to take a chance on the roof collapsing, even if it collapses on them. That is the new and unrecognizable role that Donald Trump has filled.  It’s hard to conjure up another example of it in our recent past. The Donald represents, as a friend of mine likes to say, the suicide bomber in us all. And voting for him, among other things, will be an act of nihilism, a mood that fits well with imperial decline.

“Think of him as a message in a bottle washing up on our shore...”

And yet, on that day of decision, I evidently reverted to the boy I had once been, the boy who grew up with a vision of an idealized America that would always do the right thing.  So I was shocked to the core by Donald Trump’s victory.

In that fever dream of a night, when he washed up on all our shores, I had certainly been trumped, but then, so had he, so had we all.  Under the circumstances, I’m sure you’ll understand why I’ve remained hesitant about putting my faith in polls in this election season or giving special significance to reports that the White House staff was glum as hell about the coming midterms and expected the worst. (After all, mightn’t this be that Michael Wolff election night all over again?)

The American Shooting Gallery

Two years after that fateful November night in 2016, we’re still living in a fever dream of some sort, enveloped 24/7 by the universe of President Trump and the “fake news media,” that provides him and the rest of us with a strange, all-encompassing echo chamber.  America, you might say, now has a 103-degree temperature and there isn’t an emergency room in sight.

And it’s unlikely to get better, whatever happens in the midterm elections.  Those who expect that a Democratic victory or a devastating Mueller reportin the weeks to come will be the beginning of the end for the Trump presidency (or, for that matter, that the victory of an ever more extreme Republican Party will simply prove more of the grisly same) might want to reconsider. Perhaps it's worth weighing other grimmer possibilities in the as-yet-unending rise of what’s still called “right-wing populism,” not just locally but globally.  Here in the United States, with hate and venom surging (and, yes indeed, being encouraged by President Trump for his own purposes), a genuinely ugly strain central to this country’s history is being resurrected.  In the process, a burgeoning number of deeply disturbed (and deeply animated) figures from among the most over-armed civilian population on the planet -- Yemen, of all the grim places, comes in a distant second -- are turning this country into a shooting gallery.

Win or lose today, don’t think that the Donald Trump we have is the one we’re fated to have until the day he goes down in flames. He is distinctly a work in progress, or perhaps it would be more accurate to say: in regress.  In that context, let me mention an evolution of a grim sort in my own thinking over the last two years.

For some time now there have been both thinkers and activists who have been convinced that Donald Trump is an American Mussolini, an outright fascist.  (According to his ex-wife, in the early 1990s he kept a book of Hitler’s speeches by his bedside and, during the 2016 election campaign, he retweeted a Mussolini quote, defending himself for doing so.)  I’ve always disagreed, however.  To my mind, he’s clearly been a man who wants to be idolized and adulated (as happens at any of his rallies) -- wants, that is, to have fans, not (in the fascistic sense) followers; applause and the eternal spotlight, not a social movement.  That, it seems to me, has been an accurate description of the president who entered the Oval Office and occupied it in such a suggestive way these last nearly two years.  But I’ve recently started to wonder.  After all, once upon a time, Donald Trump wasn’t a Republican either.  Let’s face it, he’s a quick learner when it comes to whatever may benefit The Donald.

And keep in mind that he entered an unsettled world already well preparedfor such a presidency by his predecessors in Washington.  If the fascist or, if you prefer, autocratic tendency that lurks in him and in the situation that surrounds him does come out more fully, he will obviously be aided by the ever more imperial presidency that was created in the decades before he left Trump Tower for the White House.

When he entered the Oval Office, he found there a presidency in which -- particularly on the subject of war (the president was, for instance, already America’s global assassin-in-chief) -- his powers increasingly stood outside both Congress and the Constitution. The weapons he’s now bringing to bear, including executive orders and the U.S. military, were already well prepared for him.  The refugees he makes such effective use of, whether from Syria or Central America, came to him, at least in part, thanks to this country’s war and other policies that had already roiled significant parts of the planet.  Before entering the Oval Office, the only aspect of such preparations he had any role in was the increasingly staggering inequalitythat gave a “populist” billionaire president, always ready to put more money in the hands of his .01% pals, a pained but receptive audience in the heartland.

In other words, this world and the fever dream that goes with it were Donald Trump’s oyster before he ever lifted a finger in the White House.  As a result, no election results, no matter whether the Democrats or the Republicans “win,” are likely to bring that temperature down.  In fact, if the Democrats do take the House (or even Congress), Donald Trump is unlikely to become more pliable.  If the Mueller report results in impeachment proceedings in the House, he won’t be humbled.  In the face of any such development, my guess is that his impulse will be to become more autocratic, more imperial, and even possibly more fascistic.  And the same may hold if the Republicans hang onto both houses of Congress.

Waiting for the Red Hats

Even before the vote was in, the evidence was there.  In the lead-up to the election, 5,000-plus U.S. troops (or maybe 15,000?) are headed for the U.S.-Mexico border to deal with what the president has called both an “invasion” and a “national emergency.” ("Fake news!") There, those troops will essentially twiddle their thumbs (since they are legally allowed to do little) simply because the president wanted it so.  There may, in fact, be two soldiers for every desperate refugee, including children and babies, headed toward the U.S. border in that now notorious “caravan” from Honduras.  In other words, on a whim, Donald Trump is already capable of building a wall (of troops) at that border.  The question worth asking is this: In an embattled near-future moment in which a truly Trumpian military figure (think of “him” as the next John Bolton) is in place as secretary of defense and another “national emergency” is declared, where might those troops go next because the president wanted it so?

In the days before the election, the president also threatened to sign an executive order to nullify birthright citizenship -- in the process, threatening to functionally nullify the Constitution (see the 14th Amendment), while bringing back to life the ugliest strains of American racial history just because he wanted it so.  At the moment, he might not even sign that order or, if he does, it might go down big time in Congress and the courts.  But who knows what the future of an executive-order presidency holds, especially with another Supreme Court justice pick or two in place, no matter who controls Congress?

As for those rallies of his: tell me you can’t conceive of a future America in which his adulatory crowds have stopped simply cheering and shouting for him (“Build the wall!” “Lock her up!”) and are now marching for him as well.  Is it really so hard to imagine a future in which there would be a place for a Trump Corps or for “the Red Hats”; for, that is, the kind of social movement that would no longer be confined to the arenas and stadiums of red-state America or even the polling booths of Election Day, one that might indeed be in the streets of this country at the beck and call of a fierce and autocratic billionaire?

In an increasingly unsettled world, an Autocrats, Incorporated moment globally, with an ever more powerful chief executive, and a right wing still on the march, everything that Donald Trump inherited could certainly be intensified further.  And he might be just the man to do it.  In a world in which Congress is no longer fully in his camp, in which legal charges against him, his family, and his cronies only grow, to adapt a title from a Russian novel of the early twentieth century, unquiet could flow The Don -- and in that lies peril for us all.   

Now, excuse me, I’m heading out to vote.

          Meet the AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50 accelerators      Cache   Translate Page      

If you haven't been watching AMD's launch of the 7nm Vega based MI60 and MI50 then you can catch up right here.

unnamed.png

You won't be gaming with these beasts, but for those working on deep learning, HPC, cloud computing or rendering apps you might want to take a deeper look.  The new PCIe 4.0 cards use HBM2 ECC memory and Infinity Fabric interconnects, offering up to 1 TB/s of memory bandwidth. 

The MI60 features 32GB of HBM2 with 64 Compute Units containing 4096 Stream Processors which translates into 59 TOPS INT8, up to 29.5 TFLOPS FP16, 14.7 TFLOPS FP32 and 7.4 TFLOPS FP64.  AMD claims is currently the fastest double precision  PCIe card on the market, with the 16GB Tesla V100 offering 7 TFLOPS of FP64 performance.

unnameved.jpg

The MI50 is a little less powerful though with 16GB of HBM2, 53.6 TFLOPS of INT8, up to 26.8 TFLOPS FP16, 13.4 TFLOPS FP32 and 6.7 TFLOPS FP64 it is no slouch.

1.png

With two Infinity Fabric links per GPU, they can deliver up to 200 GB/s of peer-to-peer bandwidth and you can configure up to four GPUs in a hive ring configuration, made of two hives in eight GPU servers with the help of the new ROCm 2.0 software. 

Expect to see AMD in more HPC servers starting at the beginning of the new year, when they start shipping.

           New studies on student alcohol use can inform interventions to reduce blackouts Brown University      Cache   Translate Page      

College students who drink alcohol don't typically intend to drink to the point that they "black out," and they also don't fully grasp what specific drinking behaviors present the greatest risk of blackouts, a new series of studies finds.

Prior research has found that between 30 and 50 percent of young adults who drink regularly report that they have experienced alcohol-related memory impairment in the past year, whether full "blackouts," where they can't remember anything for some period of time, or "brownouts" -- episodes of on-and-off memory loss, where memories may be recovered with reminders.

"We don't yet know what long-term effects having a blackout or repeated blackouts has on the brain," said Kate Carey, a professor with the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies at Brown's School of Public Health. "We do know that having alcohol-related memory impairment is associated with other negative consequences."

Those consequences can range from hangovers or missed classes to fights, overdoses, mental health problems or sexual assault. Given the seriousness of those risks, Carey and her colleagues conducted a series of focus groups to better understand college students' knowledge of what causes blackouts, understanding of the distinctions between blackouts and brownouts, and perspectives on the consequences of both. Their findings were published in three recent papers.

"Studies like these, addressing attitudes toward blackout drinking as well as what students know and do not know about blackouts, give us clues about how we might intervene to reduce this high-risk outcome," said Jennifer Merrill, an assistant professor of behavioral and social sciences at Brown who was involved in the studies. "This work helps us to identify where there is room to correct any misconceptions students have about the causes and consequences of blackouts."

Focus on focus groups
Each of the three studies was based on analyzing transcripts from a series of eight single-gender focus groups of college students who had reported a blackout in the prior six months. The focus groups included a total of 50 students, 28 women and 22 men, from four-year colleges and universities in the Providence, Rhode Island, area.

In the first paper, the researchers report that students were aware that drinking hard liquor, drinking large quantities of alcohol and drinking quickly increased the risk of blackouts. However, Carey said, many students didn't understand that biological factors -- things like biological sex and genetics -- play a role in the risk of blackouts, or that mixing alcohol use with other drugs could increase risk as well.

"The kind of drinking that results in alcohol-related memory impairment is common, but it's also not typically done with the intent of blacking out," Carey said. "And those who regularly drink and report blackout experiences don't have a full understanding of what causes them. The interesting thing is that regardless of how much you drink, there are ways to drink so that you don't black out."
Specifically, drinking in smaller quantities or pacing drinks across a longer period of time can prevent the rapid rise in blood alcohol concentration that is known to cause blackouts, she said.
The focus groups also provided other insights into how best to draw college students' attention to the consequences of blackouts.
The second paper analyzed perspectives from students who were asked: "What is a person's typical reaction when he/ she blacks out?" and "Overall, what makes a blackout a negative, neutral or positive experience?"
Generally, students described blackouts negatively, using terms such as "embarrassing," "annoying" and "scary." But some described the experience as exciting.
"You're a little nervous cuz [sic] you definitely could have done something really stupid, but you don't know and it's kind of like a little bit of fear, but at the same time, you're kind of excited that you did something awesome," a 19-year-old male participant said of blackouts.
The researchers found that social factors -- whether a student's friends thought blackouts were common or acceptable and who they were with during the blackout period -- influenced their perspective. The severity of the memory loss, and learning whether they did anything embarrassing during the blackout, also affected their opinions, Carey said.
In the third study, the researchers found that college students used the phrase "blackout drinking" hyperbolically to describe drinking very heavily, yet without the intent to lose memories. On the other hand, "a blackout" more precisely meant an episode with periods of as much as an hour of complete memory loss. The students called shorter periods of missing memory or fuzzy memories "brownouts," Carey said.
While the free-form conversations gave the researchers new insights into nuances of the blackout experience and the language students use, the focus groups were not designed to provide quantitative data on how common blackouts and brownouts were. For that reason, the research team also conducted an online survey of 350 full-time college students from across the U.S. who reported lost memory after drinking in the past year.
The survey found that students experienced brownouts more frequently than blackouts. Specifically, 49 percent of those surveyed had experienced both blackouts and brownouts in the past month, 32 percent had experienced only brownouts, 5 percent experienced only blackouts, and 14 percent hadn't experienced any alcohol-related memory impairment in the past month.
The surveyed students also voiced less concern about brownout experiences compared to blackouts.
"We found that brownouts were indicators to the students that they were drinking in a manner that could lead to a blackout someday," Carey said. "But they were discounting the earlier signs of memory loss, suggesting that they weren't serving as red flags or even as a yellow light."
Education and interventions General education on the consequences of heavy alcohol use hasn't been shown to be effective for anyone, including college students, Carey said, but personalized feedback can reduce the riskiest kinds of drinking.
She hopes to use insights from these studies to develop additional education modules for alcohol prevention programs that specifically address the risks of the high-volume, fast-paced drinking that is likely to lead to blackouts. Particularly, that behaviors like "pregaming" -- drinking before attending a larger event or activity where alcohol will be available -- participating in drinking games and "chugging" increase the risk of blackout.
The role that biological factors play in the risk of blackout is another area that needs to be addressed with better education, she said.
Walking students through their blackout experiences to reframe them as risky rather than inconsequential and sharing statistics that illustrate that blackouts aren't actually the norm among peers are other targeted ways to reduce behaviors that lead to blackouts, Carey said.
"We hope that focusing in on this one particular consequence of a certain style of drinking will provide lots of opportunities for interventions," she said.

It's Election Day! Game Informer's Matt Miller wrote here about how and why gamers didn't make it to the polls in recent elections, but a popular meme sweeping through twitter might be a good indication that young voters are getting out this year. The "Voting in 2016 vs. Voting in 2018" meme is blowing up and giving voters a hilarious platform to express their thoughts on this election, and gaming culture is getting in on the action.

          PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds May Soon Come To PlayStation 4      Cache   Translate Page      

The Korean Ratings board recently suggested that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corp.'s battle royale game that once sat at the top of the world, will be coming to PlayStation 4. Generally the Korean Ratings Board sings pitch-perfect leaks of upcoming ports and games, but for those who might need a bit more evidence, the game has apparently appeared in the PlayStation Network database.

A user on gaming forum Resetera brought up a post from PSNProfiles.com, where a user found images of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on PSN in two forms: the icon that appears in the user's library and the splash screen that shows when the game is loading. 

The battle royale game was snatched up as a console exclusive by Microsoft for the Xbox One last year, with PUBG Corp. citing that Xbox One having early access as being the main reason they agreed to Microsoft's offer. With the game now officially "out" on Xbox One, as in out of early access, it would be able to come to PlayStation 4 no problem. Sony has shown a willingness to ignore blocking early access games, as they did with Fortnite when it released in Save the World form.

If PUBG releases on PlayStation 4 with a publisher other than Bluehole, it will have a different publisher on every platform: Bluehole on PC and Microsoft on Xbox One.

          Video game addiction has sparked a culture war in China — and it’s having huge repercussions for the world's biggest video game maker      Cache   Translate Page      

Tencent mobile video games

  • Tencent, the world's largest video game publisher, will implement age restrictions for all of its titles in China in 2019.
  • Player identities will be verified using China's national citizen database and gamers under the age of 18 will have their playtime limited to one or two hours per day.
  • Tencent is also testing facial identification software in two cities to assist with player verification.
  • The mandatory verification and time limits arrive as Chinese officials consider new regulations to combat video game addiction.

Chinese video game publisher Tencent plans to implement age restrictions for all of its games in China in 2019 and will continue to use the country's national citizen database to verify player identities.

The new policy aims to limit playing time for children, as Chinese officials continue to express concerns about video game addiction. Tencent is the world's largest video game publisher and China is the world's largest video game market, generating more than $34 billion in annual revenue, according to NewZoo.

The rising popularity of video games has created a cultural clash in the country, with critics arguing that gaming is an unproductive and potentially addictive hobby for Chinese youth. Since last year, regulators have slowly restricted the approval of new games and prevented publishers from monetizing titles that are already popular.

In a response to criticism and government recommendations, Tencent began age-restricting playtime for its most popular game, "Honour of Kings," last year. Players under the age of 18 were limited to playing just two hours a day, while those under the age of 12 were limited to one hour a day. On Weibo, a Chinese social media platform, the company announced it will soon expand the policy to its top 10 most popular mobile games, and more PC and mobile titles will get the same treatment next year.

Tencent recently announced that all players will need to verify their identity using their Real Name Identity System (RNIS) to play "Honour of Kings." According to research firm Niko Partners, each player's name and age is checked against the national citizen database maintained by China's Ministry of Public Security. In September, Tencent also began testing facial recognition software with thousands of randomly selected users living in Beijing and Shenzhen.

While the verification system and age-limits are meant to address the potential negative impact of video games on children, it raises new questions about player privacy. "Honour of Kings" alone has more than 200 million players, and Tencent is documenting identifying information for every one of them to verify with the Chinese government.

As it stands, gamers playing Tencent games outside of China aren't subject to the same strict verification process.

NOW WATCH: First impressions of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL


          5 years after launch, we compared the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One — and it's a harder decision than ever      Cache   Translate Page      

Xbox vs Playstation

Five years ago, in 2013, Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One were on the verge of launch.

Now, in 2018, the two consoles have come into their own — and they're more distinct from each other than ever before.

They're also more affordable than ever before. But which to buy?

The answer isn't so clear.

SEE ALSO: Here are the 16 biggest video games launching this holiday, from an all-new ‘Fallout’ to the hotly-anticipated ‘Red Dead Redemption 2'

1. Price.

The Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 cost approximately the same amount of money: The base level for each is $250 to $300 in North America.

The ranges in price come from bundle offerings, in which the consoles come with various games or extra controllers or services at a discount that still raise the overall cost. You're also likely to find sales that put the prices below $250.

That's all before we start talking about the more powerful, more expensive versions of the consoles: the $400 PlayStation 4 Pro and the $500 Xbox One X.

If you're looking for the best-looking games running on the most powerful console hardware, then you're looking at buying one of these step-up versions of the PS4 and the Xbox One. Both do everything the normal PS4 and Xbox One consoles do but have the added benefit of making games look ever better than usual.

In the case of the Xbox One X, games are able to natively run with 4K/HDR visuals; the PlayStation 4 Pro offers a similar visual boost, though a slightly less impressive one. If you just bought a super-high-end 4K/HDR television and want to see what it can do, the Xbox One X is your best option when it comes to gaming.

In general, though, for the average buyer, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are evenly matched when it comes to price.



2. Games.

This is where things start to divide pretty sharply: Sony's PlayStation 4 simply has more games you can only play on the PlayStation 4.

From the "Uncharted" series to "The Last of Us," "Bloodborne," "Spider-Man" and "God of War," Sony has a far richer lineup of exclusive games on the PlayStation 4. Coming heavies like "Death Stranding" loom large on the horizon. And major third-party games like "Call of Duty," "Assassin's Creed," "Madden," and "FIFA" all show up on the PlayStation 4 as well as the Xbox One.

It has been Microsoft's biggest problem with the Xbox One in recent years: Not enough great games that can be played on only the Xbox One. There's "Halo" and "Forza," and the occasional new exclusive like "Sea of Thieves" and "State of Decay 2," but nothing of the scale that Sony's PS4 has.

For many, understandably, the game-library comparison is enough to tip the scale in favor of Sony's PlayStation 4. But look deeper and you'll find the competition is more complicated.



3. Services.

Sony and Microsoft offer nearly identical services, which serve as a means of accessing online multiplayer gaming as well as offering "free" games (as long as you remain a paying subscriber).

In Sony's case, the service is PlayStation Network; in Microsoft's case, it's Xbox Live. They cost about the same amount of money ($60 a year) and offer access to online gaming on their respective platforms. Both dole out a handful of free games to paying subscribers every month, yours to play as long as you continue to subscribe.

PlayStation Network and Xbox Live are industry-standard services at this point. What makes each console stand out in the services department is its Netflix-like gaming services: PlayStation Now and Xbox Game Pass.

With PlayStation Now, users can play more than 650 playable PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 games on a PlayStation 4 or a PC. The games are running elsewhere — you just start playing — though some are able to be downloaded to the PS4 for local play. It costs $20 a month, or $100 a year.

With Game Pass, users can download and play more than 100 original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One games on the Xbox One. It costs $10 a month. Better yet: Any games Microsoft publishes show up on Game Pass at launch, including the next major "Halo" and "Forza" games. It's one of the best deals available in gaming for this alone.

Xbox Game Pass is a strong argument for owning an Xbox One and offers a glimpse into the future of video game consoles. Instead of dropping $60 a game, for $10 a month you have access to a massive library that includes new, major games. That's huge.

          Microsoft’s Twitch Competitor Mixer Rolls Out Hefty Update With More Ways For Creators To Make Money And More Ways For Viewers To Engage      Cache   Translate Page      

After attracting more than 10 million new monthly active users in the first half of this year, bumping its total up over 20 million, Microsoft’s gaming livestream platform Mixer has rolled out a significant update with a number of changes to help creators make more money.

Mixer — originally Beam, which Microsoft acquired in 2016 and rebranded to Mixer in May 2017 — announced on its company blog that its new features, collectively called ‘Season 2,’ comprise two new on-site currencies and 'Skills,' a set of effects viewers can use, similar to Twitch’s tipping feature ‘Cheer.' Mixer also says it will introduce a progression system that will “reward your entire engagement with a streamer’s community and on Mixer as a whole” and is meant to offer a middle ground between someone being a non-paying (and therefore semi-anonymous) viewer and a paying subscriber ($5.99 per month, one dollar more than Twitch).

Of the updates, only two are available now: ‘Sparks,’ one of the currencies, and ‘Skills,’ the set of effects. ‘Embers,’ the second currency, will be available in the coming months, and the viewer progression system will be available in 2019.

Information currently released about Embers indicates it will be similar to Twitch’s ‘Bits,’ an on-site currency users can purchase for real-world money and use to Cheer for their favorite streamers. (Streamers receive one cent for each Bit used on their channel.)

Sparks, the currency rolled out today, doesn’t require users to exchange real-world money. Instead, users earn Sparks just by watching streams. Sparks can then be spent on the new Skills, which let viewers launch GIFs, stickers, and effects like confetti in a creator’s chat. And though Sparks are free to users, they will still financially benefit creators, who will earn an undisclosed amount of money each time one is used on their channel.

  • Meltys Quest, a completely uncensored 2D RPG full of sex is now available on Linux

    The Linux version actually arrived back in September, although we missed it since it's not really the type of game I tend to follow. Only three days before this, the developer put up a patch that removed censoring with no external mods needed so you can see cartoon sex in all it's, uh, glory? It features, you guessed it—sex. A lot of sex too, so much sex I can't believe how many times the word sex will be in this article.

  • GOG now has the horror game Monstrum with a Linux build, it's pretty good

    Monstrum is an interesting one, a horror game with some random generation, one of three monsters each time you play and it's quite freaky.

    What makes the game different to a lot of survival horror titles, is that the environment changes each time you play. Naturally that also means items will be in different locations and you don't know which monster you will be facing when going in. It's a survival escape adventure, with your task being to find a way to get off the ship to safety and there's multiple ways to do so.

  • Book of Demons no longer getting a native Linux port, developer plans on 'supporting' Steam Play

    Book of Demons [Steam], a dungeon crawling hack and slash with deck-building will no longer get a native Linux port. Steam Play is part of the reason.

    It won't be the last game to do this I'm sure. At least in this case, they aren't pulling support for an already released game like Human: Fall Flat as Book of Demons didn't have a public Linux version. Anyway, writing on the Steam forum the developer noted a few vague issues they were having.

    Things like "We had as many different issues with the build as testers. With each flavor of Linux came different issues." along with "Right now everything indicates that Linux port would be very high maintenance.". I always find these types of statements highly unhelpful, unless they actually say why that is. Let's be clear on this again too, you do not need to support all Linux distributions, support the most popular.

          So What Exactly Are Those Weird Anime Games In Your Dreamcast Collection?      Cache   Translate Page      
Avid fans of the Dreamcast are most likely already aware that the console enjoyed a much longer life in its home country of Japan (the last officially licensed Dreamcast game, Karous, was released in 2007). For this reason, as well as the fact 90s console developers had a track record of thinking Western gamers were frightened of anything even slightly unconventional, there is an extensive list of Japan-only Dreamcast games just waiting for fans to import. The best part is that so many are playable without knowledge of the Japanese language. Check out our A to Z of Dreamcast Games if you want to know the best Japan-exclusives to get your mitts on.

All you need is a boot disc or a modded Dreamcast and voilà! you've unlocked another section of the Dreamcast library. However, for every playable game, there are just as many that are unplayable for anyone who isn't fluent in Japanese. Anyone who is insane enough to try and collect a full Japanese set will soon realise that there is plenty of "filler" - the kind of stuff you only buy for the sake of checking another game off the list and not because you are actually going to be able to play it. You know, those games with the anime girls on the front. Crap like this:
 
Some might mistakenly call these things "dating simulators", but that's a different kettle of fish entirely. No, these are "visual novels", and they do exactly what they say on the tin, they are novels with visual elements. Boot any of these up and you'll be greeted with nothing more than walls of Japanese text and images of anime characters making various expressions. They are a very niché style of game that have never had a big following outside of Japan, especially back in the early 2000s (hence their Japanese exclusivity). Some may debate whether or not they are actually games at all, but they're still something I'd recommend to keen readers and anime fans alike. 

Their "gameplay" more or less consists of reading text and occasionally answering a multiple choice question on how the main character should react or respond in a certain situation. That might not sound all that interesting to some, but I like to look at visual novels as a more visual version of a choose your own adventure book, and being a fan of anime, the artwork contained within is something I'm familiar with. A lot of the stories are enjoyable, and believe it or not, the plots aren't always romantic; there are visual novels that focus on genres like sci-fi and mystery, for example. I'm such an advocate for these anime-centric pieces of flashy reading material that I even wrote a whole article on my website Alt:Mag defending their case.

When it comes to visual novels, the Dreamcast is home to plenty. A search on the Visual Novel Database for releases on the Dreamcast brings up pages of these things, so if you're aiming for that full Japanese set and can't read the language, rest assured that you're about to become the proud owner of many interactive drinks coasters. But players of visual novels will tell you that the Dreamcast games with the anime girls on the front aren't filler at all, and that Japanese Dreamcast players were gifted with some absolute classics within the medium. Everyone says the Dreamcast has got some of the best games, well it does in the visual novel department too. Here, let me show you.

Something for the Sega Fanatics
Let's start with one that quite a few Dreamcast fans might at least be familiar with: Sakura Taisen (or Sakura Wars). This series is Sega's foray into the visual novel genre, but Sakura Wars is more than a vanilla visual novel, as it combines tactical RPG and dating sim elements. The first two Sakura Wars games were released on the Sega Saturn, but the series found its true home on the Dreamcast, where the first two games were re-released, along with brand spanking new releases of its third and fourth game. There was also a spin-off game called Sakura Taisen Online where players could play tabletop games over the internet against other players.

Sakura Wars is a game that always sounded right up my street for its blending of genres, but also because of how its visual novel/date simulation side plays so well into its tactical RPG side. The player's choices and interactions in the various Sakura Wars games play a heavy influence on their storylines and endings. As the player builds up relationships with certain characters, they will perform better in battle and their stats will improve. Think Persona 5, but a tactical version.

This is a franchise that sold well in Japan, and was merchandised heavily, with anime and manga adaptations made, and even a movie. There was also a pretty pink Sakura Wars branded Dreamcast released, along with a controller and a VMU. Sadly, despite its success in Japan, the fifth Sakura Wars game, released on the PS2 and the Wii in 2010, is the only game in the franchise to receive an official English release. However, efforts have been made to translate the PC version of the first game into English, with the last update in August of this year confirming that "[the] script is nearing completion, and editing is ramping up". The image below shows an example of how the translation will look! Exciting stuff. Weirdly, the first two games in the series received official PC releases in Russia of all places.

Something that is Considered a Masterpiece
Kotaro Uchikoshi, the celebrated writer/director behind the fantastic Zero Escape series had several of his earlier visual novels ported onto the Dreamcast. A few of the Memories Off games were released on the DC, as well as science fiction visual novel Never 7: The End of Infinity. Most notable however is Never 7's sequel: Ever17: The Out of Infinity, which is considered to be an absolute classic, and in the context of the Dreamcast, probably the best visual novel on the system. RPGFan ranked the game as the eighteenth best role-playing game of the 2000s, calling it "a pinnacle of visual novels" and calling its storyline "one of the most emotionally charged, intense, deep, and compelling [...] ever seen in a video game". 

Released in different variations on the Dreamcast (with the first released in 2002), Ever17 features a plot about seven individuals who become trapped in an underwater marine theme park and their attempts to escape. Ever17 is much bigger that a simple escape story, however. The relationships between its different characters are intricate and deep, and the game's multiple endings, unlockable routes and the mounting conspiracy about the real cause of the accident will have players revisiting many times until they've seen it all the way until the very end. While you won't be able to play it on your trusty white Sega box without knowing Japanese, this one did received an official English release on the PC, and a way of converting it to be played on the Nintendo DS in English exists too.

Interestingly, the premium edition (pictured above) contains a promotional disc for the third visual novel in the series, Remember 11: The Age of Infinity. This visual novel was never released on the Dreamcast, but unused menu items for "Dream Passport" and "VM Icon" exist in the files of its PC version, so it seems like a Dreamcast port was in the works at some point. I am really intrigued as to whether or not this promotional disc is just some kind of media content, or if is actually a playable demo of this unreleased Dreamcast game. If you own this version of Ever17, do let me know.

Something for the Hopeless Romantics
If you've ever seen an anime series called Clannad, I'm sorry for reminding you about the time you sobbed your eyes out over a cartoon. In case you didn't know, the Clannad anime is an adaptation of a critically acclaimed visual novel by a company called Key. Key are considered heavyweights in the romantic visual novel game, and their first two games received Dreamcast ports: Kanon and Air.

Kanon and Air follow a similar kind of plot structure and have similarly likeable characters. Both feature a very dream-like atmosphere and absolutely gorgeous music, with branching plot lines that can be absolutely heartbreaking, but heartbreaking is something that the developers Key are famous for: they are the Kings of emotional visual novel writing. The Dreamcast port for Kanon was released in 2000, and Air's was released in 2001. While PSP translations are on the way for both, for now anyone wanting to play either of these visual novels in English will have to get it on PC in the form of a translation patch. If anyone does feel like translating the Dreamcast version of Kanon into English though, I'll buy you a pint for your services. It's my favourite.

Something to Approach with Caution
This thing goes a little bit outside the theme of this article as it was never officially released on the Dreamcast, but I just had to include it because its existence absolutely blew my mind. Believe it or not, there exists an English homebrew port of a visual novel for the Dreamcast. It's a game called Divi-Dead, and the image you see above is a reproduction by a chap who goes by the name Dreamcasting.

Featuring a supernatural horror plot that takes place in a eerie high school setting, players take on the role of a student whose job is to spy on his fellow students in order to uncover a supernatural mystery. Divi-Dead appears to be much more interactive than a typical visual novel, allowing the player to navigate through the game's academy setting in order to encounter various scenes and conversations with other characters. Its art style absolutely oozes that late nineties anime art style which might entice quite a lot of anime nerds out there, but it also contains some extremely dark content, much of which is of a sexual nature. While the idea of an english visual novel being playable on the Dreamcast is amazing to me, and the dark atmosphere of the game seems pretty cool, the explicit themes are the reason I'm giving this one a miss. However if that kind of thing floats your boat and you want said boat floated on your favourite Sega console, it's completely doable.
  
My mind was subsequently blown when I also came to learn that Divi-Dead received an English homebrew port for the original Xbox too. What an amazing world we live in.

Artifacts & Artifice is a valuable GM resource for all RPG players and game/dungeon masters.

Far, far more than a simple list of magic items, AA strives to make each item unique.  With extensive etymology, backstory, context, and hooks, 

This inaugural tome presents 47 unique and complex magical items, each bursting with over 8 pages of content.

Specifically, each and every artifact receives the following detail:

  • Full profiles and construction requirements for 4 magic items corresponding to a range of Variable Difficulties.
  • 4 NPCs, each fully stat-blocked and scaling to Variable Difficulties.
  • History, description, appearance, and other "fluff" for flavor.
  • Over a half-dozen hooks for integrating the weapon into your campaign.
  • Handfuls of Rumors & Lore with full FlexTable rules for dynamically integrating the rumors into your campaign.
  • One or more Quests ready to run in any campaign setting, incorporating the magic item.
  • Handfuls of Quest Seeds to give GMs with more prep time inspiration.

Some sample items from this book:

  • The Harp of Sorrows, a bardic instrument that amplifies many effects.
  • The Eclipse Blade, a longsword that generates brilliant and potent light effects.
  • The Philtre of Bodily Avarice, a potion that grants the poisoner emotional influence over the victim.
  • The Grimscraper, a potent poison dagger that enhances the lethality of poisons applied to it.

The Artifacts & Artifice approach is not to simply list out another boring magical item.  Each item receives an enormous amount of lavish detail, description, Quests, and even wielding NPCs.

Artifacts & Artifice is a valuable GM resource for all RPG players and game/dungeon masters.

Far, far more than a simple list of magic items, AA strives to make each item unique.  With extensive etymology, backstory, context, and hooks, 

This inaugural tome presents 47 unique and complex magical items, each bursting with over 8 pages of content.

Specifically, each and every artifact receives the following detail:

  • Full profiles and construction requirements for 4 magic items corresponding to a range of Variable Difficulties.
  • 4 NPCs, each fully stat-blocked and scaling to Variable Difficulties.
  • History, description, appearance, and other "fluff" for flavor.
  • Over a half-dozen hooks for integrating the weapon into your campaign.
  • Handfuls of Rumors & Lore with full FlexTable rules for dynamically integrating the rumors into your campaign.
  • One or more Quests ready to run in any campaign setting, incorporating the magic item.
  • Handfuls of Quest Seeds to give GMs with more prep time inspiration.

Some sample items from this book:

  • The Potion Gorget, an innovative leather neckpiece that lets the wearer imbibe potions quickly in combat.
  • The Vorpal Scabbard, a sheath that grants benefits to any weapon stored therein.
  • The Corset of Last Resort, a seemingly cosmetic bodice of particular use by concubines in rough neighborhoods.
  • The Mistskin Suit, a leather suit that grants incorporality effects to the wearer.

The Artifacts & Artifice approach is not to simply list out another boring magical item.  Each item receives an enormous amount of lavish detail, description, Quests, and even wielding NPCs.

          ASAI Launches Innovative Quick Advance - Cashier Assisted Kiosk System      Cache   Translate Page      

Glendale, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/02/2018 -- Automated Systems America, Inc. (ASAI) a long-established payment processor specializing in "Cash Access" products for the gaming industry, announced today that it has officially launched its pioneering Quick Advance™- Cashier Assisted Kiosk System. ASAI's latest entry to their suite of Cash Access products was unveiled at Pala Casino Spa & Resort on Friday. The Quick Advance™ Kiosk System allows guests of the casino to fully complete and dispense Credit, Debit and Check Cashing Advances without having to wait in line for a Cage Cashier.

The Quick Advance™ Kiosk System combines the Guest and Cashier portions of Cash Advance transactions into an easy-to-complete transaction flow that occurs entirely on the kiosk itself. From card swipe to dispense, the guest remains in one place — closer to the gaming action and out of the Cage lines. The Quick Advance™ System allows for deeper and more dimensional guest service relationships, while at the same time significantly reducing labor costs. The Pala Casino implementation allows one cashier to operate three Quick Advance™ enabled kiosks and has allowed the property to permanently close four Cage Cashier windows.

"This is the first time since Ticketing Kiosks were introduced 15 years ago that a new kiosk will actually eliminate labor while increasing service," said Brian Roe, Director of Cage and Credit Operations at Pala Casino Spa and Resort. "The bottom line in labor savings and the service opportunities this product creates have provided us the freedom to rethink the Cage entirely. Congratulations to ASAI for developing this exciting product."

Pala's addition of the Quick Advance™- Cashier Assisted Kiosk System to their floor, marks the final touch on a yearlong corporate project to reduce labor, provide efficiencies and increase guest services through Cage and Slot. Earlier in 2018, ASAI's Live Cage™ Currency Dispensers and Jackpot Pro™ Kiosks were installed in every Cage window and Employee Service location, in an effort to help Pala accomplish the labor reduction and service goals within that project.

          A review of things you need to know before you go home on Monday; big mortgage rate cuts, B&T rates rise as do dropouts, commodities lower, car sales leap, bank behaviour critiqued, swaps up, NZD holds      Cache   Translate Page      

Here are the key things you need to know before you leave work today.

MORTGAGE RATE CHANGES
Kiwibank launched a hot new 4.05% fixed one year rate. That follows rate cuts from TSB. Later today, TSB then changed their one year rate lower again to match Kiwibank.

TERM DEPOSIT RATE CHANGES
None here today.

SALES RISE BUT SO DO DROPOUTS
Dominant agency Barfoot & Thompson's October sales point to a reasonably busy summer housing market in Auckland with both prices and volumes higher in October. They now have 22.1 weeks of inventory which is lower than the 2018 average of 23.9 weeks, and lower than the 2017 average of 24.7 weeks. Barfoot's drop-out rate however blipped up to 18.4% in October. The drop-our rate measures the level of listings that never sold and are no longer listed. The average in 2018 has been 13.4% and in 2017 it was 17.7%. Barfoots now have 4,848 listings, the highest level since February 2012. It's a buyers market where buyers are willing to pay.

COMMODITIES LOWER
The ANZ World Commodity Price Index fell for a fifth consecutive month, down -2.4% month-on-month in October. The drop was identical to the monthly fall recorded in September. The annual decline of -5.6% year-on-year is the weakest since mid-2016. The index was driven down by weaker prices for most commodities. The exception was for aluminium. In New Zealand dollars, the declines weren't as steep.

SUVs & PICKUPS LEAVE EVs IN THE DUST
New car sales leapt to 11,767 a new all-time high for any month. Sixty percent were SUVs, and the smaller versions were especially popular. Commercial vehicle sales were also strong but not a record.

'PULL YOUR SOCKS UP'
New Zealand's two banking regulators have been assessing bank culture and practices here in light of the findings by the Australian Hayne inquiry. They report bank conduct and culture problems are not widespread in NZ, but they highlight a culture of banks acting in their own, not customers', interests. More details are here. What can be done about what they found it is here. And what they say about banker pay is here.

ASKING CUSTOMERS ABOUT BANK CONDUCT & CULTURE
The reviewers released results of a survey of 2005 people who were asked questions about their bank. This survey formed part of the basis of their conclusions. You can read it here. But is does have some odd elements. 56% of those surveyed claim to have had a face-to-face connection with their bank. That seems wildly skewed away from the general population, the vast majority of who won't have walked into a bank branch in the past year. The survey responses to customer perceptions about 'trust' are odd as well but consistent with this type of survey in other areas; customers trust 'their bank' but don't trust banks in general. It's a bit like survey results about members of parliament; they like their own MP but diss all MPs as unlikeable. Or they universally claim to be good drivers but say more than half of all drivers are shockers. Hard to know how seriously to take this customer survey on banks. But it was one important thread in the regulator review of banks. (You do wonder what the same people would say about the regulstors.)

REFORM BY INCREASING COMPLEXITY
In Australia, the NSW government will deliver a tax break to future home buyers that will grow over time, cutting the average amount of stamp duty per property transaction by indexing stamp duty to eliminate bracket creep. Currently they levy stamp duties at the rate of 4.5% of the purchase price and higher for homes over AU$1 mln and even higher at 5% over AU$3 mln. The new bracket creep adjustments will not apply to investors. Although hailed as a major reform, it will make their stamp duty regime even more complex, and will open it up to even further gaming opportunities.

BORROWING TO PAY THE GROCERIES
Fonterra says it's considering a bond offer to raise up to $150 million that will be used 'for general corporate purposes'.

CHORUS TO GO TO BOND MARKET TOO
Chorus also says it is considering making an offer of up to $300 mln (with the ability to accept over subscriptions at Chorus’ discretion) of ten year unsecured, unsubordinated, re-setting fixed rate bonds.

SWAP RATES RISE & STEEPEN
Swap rates are up strongly and steepened today. The two year is up by another +3 bps to its highest level in more than three months, the five year is up +4 bps and the ten year is up +5 bps. The UST 10yr yield has softened a little from this morning but is holding its higher level at 3.21%. The UST 2-10 curve has widened to +30 bps. Other benchmark bond rates are still firming too. The Aussie Govt 10yr is at 2.73% (up +3 bps today), the China Govt 10yr is up +1 bp at 3.55%, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is at 2.66% and up another +4 bps. The 90 day bank bill rate is unchanged at 1.94%.

BITCOIN STABLE
The bitcoin price is up marginally to US$6,443 and little changed since this morning.

NZD HOLDING HIGHER
The NZD is holding at just under its weekend level at 66.4 USc. On the cross rates we are holding higher as well at 92.3 AUc, and at 58.3 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at just on 70.8.

          Terrifying 'Scaly Grey' Being Encounter      Cache   Translate Page      

I recently came across the following account:

I feel that people tend to criticize other stories like these, and make that person feel like they're insane. Regardless of that, here's my story.

On the night of May 18, 2016 I was playing a popular online console game called 'Call of Duty Black Ops 3.' I am an avid gamer, and tend to lose time when playing this game. During the wait between matches I would watch random YouTube videos that popped up in the recommended section on the side of the screen. I'm sure many of you have had this happen to you, but somehow I ended up in the section about space, time travel and aliens. Some of the videos questioned the origins of humanity, if UFO's were real, and the different types of aliens that have visited Earth. After spending a few hours on the game and watching these videos I looked at one of my monitor screens to check the time, and had noticed it was past midnight (somewhere around 1AM, I don't remember specifically). I decided it was pretty late and needed to get some sleep. So, I turned off the console and hopped in bed. For some reason I could not get comfortable lying in bed normally, so I pretty much slept upside down (meaning feet to the headboard, head to the foot of the bed). I know, strange, but it worked and I fell asleep.

Now this next part is important to the scenery of the room. If I could draw a picture and upload it I would, but I don't believe that to be an option on this specific site. I have a pretty "nerdy" gaming setup. I've always been into video games since I was a kid, and friends of mine today say that I am an "undercover nerd" because of all the electronics I have. My setup consists of 3 monitors, a custom built PC, all the bells and whistles for live-streaming videos games, etc. Most nights I don't turn my monitors off, because when the computer goes into sleep mode the monitors just go black. You may be asking why I'm even typing all this out, but trust me, it becomes relevant to the rest of the event, which I'll get into now.

So here I am starting to get really tired and my eyes begin to close. I don't remember going to sleep, but I do remember waking up. I woke up to the strangest feeling. I thought I was having a nightmare, and remembered that if you know you're dreaming then you're not dreaming anymore. I was awake, very awake, and I could not move my body. My head was faced towards my nerdy gaming setup and all 3 of my monitors were doing that hazy, staticy, white and grey projection that everyone's seen in scary movies.-The weird part is that they have never done that before, ever. The light emitted from the monitors was so bright that I did not notice what was standing next to me at first. I have a king-size bed on a frame that puts the mattress pretty high. This thing was at about eye level with me, so it had to have been about 4 feet tall. Like I said, I could not move my body at all during this entire time, I could however move my eyes. I tried my hardest to turn my head, make a noise, scream but nothing would come out. I was paralyzed looking at this thing that got even more terrifying by the second. I started panicking and began convulsing violently because I didn't know what was happening. I could see this THING looking right into my eyes with it's huge, dark, glossy black ovals as eyes, and skin that seemed almost lizard and really dark grey color. Eventually I just blacked out after staring at this thing for a few very long seconds. I've never had a seizure, I've seen someone have them multiple times, but I have never had one myself. That is the only word I can think of that relates to what happened to my body after I began panicking. but if you have a seizure, you don't know you're having a seizure. So, what happened?

After blacking out I came to, still laying backwards in my bed. All the lights were off in the room, the monitors were pitch black, and it almost seemed like everything was back to normal. I just laid there for probably 10 to 15 minutes, petrified as to what I just experienced. After slowly getting the courage to get out of bed and tactically check my apartment for intruders, I sat down at my computer and looked at the time. I don't recall the exact time I got into bed, but I do recall the time difference from when I got into bed and when I had gotten up out of bed after the whole experience. The difference in time was only 30 minutes. So, within 30 minutes all of this happened. It wasn't a dream. It was as real as I've ever seen anything in my life. I made an attempt at drawing what I had seen before my eyes, which is attached to this post. I told this story to my mother, and surprisingly she believed me.

Just so you know I am 23, a combat veteran, and sh*t doesn't scare me very often. This is my attempt at letting you all know that I have been in pretty stressful situations and not turned into a p*ssy like I did on this night. To be honest I quite enjoy scary movies, I find them kind of funny. But, this thing was absolutely terrifying, and not being able to control my body while this happened made it even more traumatic. I wanted to type this up to get the word out, because I know some people have had other experiences like this but are confused and frightened like I was and am. If something similar has happened to you, know that you're not alone out there. I was a skeptic about this type of thing beforehand, and I believe that is the smartest way to go about life until you are certain something is real with personal experience. There are a lot of videos and stories on the internet that are extremely fake, so definitely question everything you see if you're skeptical as well. However, after this night I am full heartedly a believer. Aliens are real, and they are terrifying. - P4

          Esports vs. pro sports: Jeremy Lin is betting on both       Cache   Translate Page      

Gaming companies control the games and therefore own the intellectual property on which eSports are based on. They have the scope to control the evolution of the esports sector in a way that was never open to conventional sports. That represents two important revenue vectors. The first is that the shelf-life of games is extended. Historically games have been discounted within about 12 months of release and once a player gets about 40 hours of game time they set the title aside. However, with an eSport constantly boosting visibility the legacy game has the potential to continue to attract new players well after its release date.

          Laundering laws, not racism, may have barred Drake from gambling in Vancouver      Cache   Translate Page      

VANCOUVER—British Columbia’s new anti-money-laundering laws, not racial profiling, may have been what prevented Drake from gambling in Vancouver last weekend, according to several sources — including an online post purporting to be from an employee at the casino.

The Toronto rapper, full name Aubrey Drake Graham, just turned 32 on Oct. 24 and has a penchant for visiting casinos around the date, according to previous social-media posts.

On Instagram, Drake wrote: “Parq Casino is the worst run business I have ever witnessed … Profiling me and not allowing me to gamble when I had everything they originally asked me for.”

Drake’s account was disputed by a Reddit user who claimed he is a Parq casino employee, though StarMetro could not independently verify the truth of that claim. The user didn’t respond to an email requesting more information. CTV News, however, said it verified the events described with another unnamed source.

The user, “O-A-N,” alleged that Drake ran afoul of rules requiring he produce proof he withdrew funds of more than $10,000 the same day and declare its source.

“Basically, you need a bank receipt for the same day you buy in,” the Reddit post said. “He was refused service because of (the British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s) policy that requires source of funds from any player trying to buy in for more than $10,000 in cash.

Drake accuses Vancouver casino of racial profiling

“Parq tried to do everything they could to allow him to gamble … including calling up BCLC. Drake and his entourage were well informed of this policy when they were refused service. If Parq allowed Drake to break this law, they could lose their gambling licence.”

According to an update from the same Reddit user, Drake did end up gambling both that night and the next day.

“He was there for at least six hours that I know of,” the user wrote. “Drake did in fact gamble for a while. Not only did he have his own ($10,000) buy-in, he had a friend at one point wire him money to Parq, which they accepted, and he gambled some more.

“When he lost that, he tried to buy in again with cash and he was refused again. Seems like after losing everything, he left and threw and made that post.”

A spokesperson for Parq Vancouver told StarMetro she “can’t comment on specific customers” for privacy reasons but said that “Parq Vancouver is responsible for following all of the regulations set out by B.C. (Lotteries Corp). We follow these guidelines for every customer.”

The casino said in a Saturday post on its Instagram account it is “constantly improving our communications process to ensure that these new regulations are better understood by all guests ... We are operating in one of the most complex, highly regulated industries and are always looking to better our communication and customer service.

“We categorically stand against racism of any kind.”

In a statement on its website, B.C. Lotteries Corporation says it requires reporting of any cash buy-in of $10,000 or more, including the customer’s identification and a bank receipt.

“All cash and bank draft/certified cheque buy-ins for $10,000 or more, in one or more transactions within a 24-hour period, will require a source of funds receipt,” the Crown corporation said. “The original receipt must be from the same day of the transaction and show the financial institution, branch number and account number.

“This information will be required before a customer is allowed to buy in.”

After Attorney General David Eby took office last year, he described being shown video footage of hundreds of thousands of dollars — in elastic-bound $20s — being dumped from duffel bags at casino teller wickets. He responded by ordering a report by former RCMP regional commissioner Peter German.

German’s bombshell report was titled Dirty Money. Compared to other jurisdictions, B.C. had allowed money laundering and organized criminal activity to flourish over a decade in its casinos, the report said, and the previous government had shuttered an anti-money-laundering enforcement unit despite insiders’ warnings about the problem.

As a result, Eby tabled and passed a revamp of B.C.’s casino legislation, including measures to force gaming businesses to flag all transactions over $10,000 to authorities and require them to prove where they got the cash on the same day.

And according to Eby on Monday, the new laws have worked, causing a “remarkable and sharp decline in suspicious transactions,” adding there’s been a “reduction of about 100 times from the peak of suspicious cash transactions.”

For that reason, Eby said, there can be no exceptions regarding disclosure.

B.C.’s rules are by no means unique. Had Drake or any celebrity walked into, say, a Las Vegas casino owned by Parq’s operator, Paragon Gaming, he would have discovered a tight net of laws and regulations also govern cash transactions there.

German visited Las Vegas, the hub of gaming on the continent, and met with enforcement officials and regulators there. His recommendations were largely inspired by Nevada’s model, including encouraging alternatives to cash and requiring identification and detailed record-keeping on large transactions.

“I hypothesized that a box of cash arrived with rubber bands at a cash cage,” German wrote about his meetings with Las Vegas’ deputy chief of the enforcement division and a casino investigator. “What would occur? The officers doubted that this would occur in Las Vegas.”

According to the U.S. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (the equivalent of Canada’s FinTRAC), “a casino is required to file a (Currency Transaction Report by Casinos) on currency transactions by or on behalf of any customer that, alone or when aggregated, exceed $10,000 in a gaming day.”

The same law applies to poker players buying in with “more than $10,000 in chips with currency, in a single transaction or a series of related transactions in the same gaming day.”

Violations in the U.S. could cost a casino $25,000 every day of the violation occurring, up to $100,000 per violation.

Drizzy has said nothing beyond his call-out on Instagram. But in his song “Diplomatic Immunity,” released on Jan. 19, he sings about a previous incident at a casino in Detroit:

“I refuse to comply with regulations … Motor City Casino, I’m at the cage with my old licence. They tell me, ‘Don’t worry, I got your money.’”

          Launching Honor 8x: Smartphone Berfitur Flagship Berpadu dengan Harga Terbaik      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Honor sebagai e-brand smartphone terkemuka secara resmi meluncurkan Honor 8X bertempat di The Hall, Senayan City, Selasa (06/11/2018). Mengusung slogan "Beyonds limits" atau berarti "Melampaui Batas," Honor 8X digadang menjadi amunisi baru untuk menantang smartphone flagship dengan harga kompetitif.

Peluncuran ini sekaligus menjadi langkah penting bagi Honor yang menargetkan jadi Top 3 smartphone terbaik dalam tiga tahun ke depan. Ya, bukan tanpa alasan Honor mendapuk Honor 8X  menjadi penantang smartphone flagship brand ternama lainnya.

Dilihat dari spesifikasinya, Honor 8X memang terbilang tak biasa untuk smartphone dengan rentang harga di kelasnya. Honor 8X dibekali  layar berukuran 6,5 inci, screen-to-body ratio hingga 91%, kamera ganda di bagian belakang beresolusi 20MP dan 2MP ditunjang teknologi Artificial Intelligence (AI), serta prosesor berkinerja tinggi Kirin 710. Tentu saja Honor 8X menawarkan proposisi nilai dengan harga yang tak tersaingi oleh smartphone flagship sekalipun.

“Secara internal, kami menyebut Honor 8X ini sebagai flagship killer, karena produk ini memiliki banyak fitur unggulan layaknya smartphone kelas atas, namun harganya sangat terjangkau,” kata James Yang, Presiden Honor Indonesia.

James menambahkan, bahwa popularitas Honor 8X sudah dikenal hampir di seluruh dunia, sebut saja di Rusia, kawasan Timur Tengah, dan negara-negara Eropa Barat membuat smartphone ini laris manis. Tentu ini menjadi bukti bahwa para pengguna telah mengakui Honor 8X sebagai handphone dengan nilai terbaik saat ini.

Saat acara peluncuran, Honor berkolaborasi dengan pemimpin pasar drone dan sistem fotografi udara, DJI dengan meluncurkan kotak khusus co-branding. Kotak yang memuat logo Honor 8X dan DJI Spark tersebut bertujuan untuk menciptakan gaya hidup baru bagi anak muda Indonesia, terutama dengan bantuan teknologi yang kian canggih.  Selain itu, ada juga beberapa kerjasama offline antara Honor 8X dan DJI di toko ritel resmi DJI di Jakarta.

Untuk menyediakan lebih banyak hiburan bagi konsumen, Honor juga bermitra dengan Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, arena permainan online multiplayer yang populer di smartphone.

Menurut Adrian Alpin, Direktur Pemasaran Mobile Legend: Bang Bang, kerja sama ini bertujuan untuk menyediakan lebih banyak hiburan bagi konsumen dan memenuhi kebutuhan anak muda Indonesia yang ingin mengoptimalkan pengalaman gaming mereka.

Konsistensi memproduksi jajaran produk inovatif disertai strategi pemasaran yang tepat, Honor sebagai e-brand smartphone nomor satu di negeri tirai bambu juga berharap bisa menjadi pemimpin industri smartphone di tanah air.

Tak hanya itu Honor terus memperluas pasarnya ke negara-negara lain, dalam semester pertama tahun 2018, Honor telah berhasil mencatatkan pertumbuhan volume penjualan internasional hingga 150% year-on-year di luar pasar China.

Di Indonesia sendiri, Honor meraih pencapaian yang luar biasa, dengan pertumbuhan bulanan sebesar 100% di paruh pertama tahun ini. Pada bulan Mei 2018, Honor bahkan telah melampaui Apple sebagai merek smartphone nomor 2 di Rusia dalam hal volume penjualan, setelah berada di posisi ke 3 dalam waktu 13 bulan sebelumnya.

Honor juga merupakan vendor smartphone dengan pertumbuhan terpesat di India, yakni sebesar 300% dalam volume penjualan dan pendapatan di paruh pertama tahun 2018.

          Mac mini 2018 Reviews Roundup: Long-Awaited Update Should Impress Fans and Pro Users, But Upgrade Options Can Get Pricey      Cache   Translate Page      
The first round of Mac mini reviews were published online this morning. Below we've highlighted some of the key takeaways from around the web ahead of Apple's official November 7 launch.

Four years in the waiting, the new Mac mini comes in Space Gray, features 4- and 6-core 8th-Generation Intel Core processors, four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, support for up to 64GB RAM, and up to 2TB of solid-state storage. It also includes Apple's T2 chip for added security.


Review Highlights


On the new Mac mini's largely unchanged design:

Six Colors's Jason Snell:
In the last few years, Intel has pushed the idea of extremely small desktop PCs, leading people like me to speculate that perhaps the next Mac mini would be even more mini. That didn’t happen. Instead, Apple has decided to use the existing Mac mini design, a low-lying slab of machined aluminum with curved edges. The only real difference is that now it’s darker, the old silver look replaced with a new space gray finish.
On Apple's port choices for the Mac mini:

TechCrunch's Brian Heater:
The biggest turn on the I/O side of things, however, is the inclusion of an impressive four Thunderbolt 3 ports. That’s the same number found on the iMac Pro and twice as many as you get on the 2017 standard iMac. It opens things up to a lot more computing versatility. As far as my own desk is concerned, I welcome the ability to power the LG 4K monitor Apple sent along for testing purposes.
Developer Marco Arment:
The ports are different, and versatile. Like the iMac Pro, the Mac mini recognizes that it’s useful to offer both USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 and USB-A ports. There are four of those Thunderbolt 3 ports, two classic USB-A ports, HDMI, a headphone jack, and Ethernet—Gigabit by default, with up to 10Gb Nbase-T Ethernet available as a $100 option. You can hang two 4K displays or one 5K display off of the Thunderbolt 3 ports. You can use adapters to connect to Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 2 or to give yourself more USB-A or… really, whatever you can think of. It’s a lot of ports.
On Apple's upgrade choices for the Mac mini:

Macworld's Ramon Loyola:
The $799 model comes with a 128GB drive, but if that isn’t enough, Apple offers upgrades all the way up to 2TB if you’re willing to pay. The SSDs are PCI-e cards and Apple doesn’t consider them user-upgradeable. So, if you prefer to house your storage inside the computer instead of attaching an external drive, you might consider shelling out more money for an upgrade.

The $799 Mac mini comes standard with 8GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory, installed as a pair of 4GB SO-DIMMs. The mini supports a maximum of 64GB, and you can upgrade the memory later, but Apple doesn’t consider the Mac mini to be user-configurable, and it recommends that memory upgrades be performed by a certified Apple service provider.
Six Color's's Jason Snell:
Today the Mac mini is about flexibility and filling niches. This update allows it to span a wide range from basic server needs all the way up to high-end applications that require a great deal of processor power, fast storage, ultra-fast networking, and even beyond (via Thunderbolt 3). The high-end configurations might actually provide enough power for people to consider them over buying the Mac Pro, whenever it comes out.
On the new Mac mini's performance:

Marco Arment:
The big story to me is how incredibly fast this thing is. Granted, I’m testing the fastest CPU offered, but damn.

Geekbench results are very strong. The i7 Mac Mini scored better on single-core performance than every other Mac today (!) at 5912, and its multi-core score of nearly 24,740 beats every Mac to date except the iMac Pro and the old 12-core 2013 Mac Pro.

"Performance-competitive with pro Macs" was not high on my prediction list for a Mac Mini update, but here we are.
CNET's Lori Grunin:
For many pros, it may be hamstrung by Intel's integrated graphics processor. I'm not saying it needs a powerful gaming or rendering GPU. A Kaby Lake G CPU, for example, would be a nice alternative to the i3 simply to make the system low-end VR ready, to take some of the video decoding burden or to help reduce overhead in audio production.

[...]

Apple really seems to be betting on external GPUs as a solution for much of its graphics woes. But one of the benefits of the Mini is that it's mini. Having to make space for a big eGPU just for better-than-basic graphics acceleration kind of defeats the purpose of a tiny system, especially when you're likely going to be hanging a multitude of external drives and other accessories off it as well.
TechCrunch's Brian Heater:
Even the lowest-speced version should be plenty fine for most tasks. I've shifted my standard tech blogger work flow over the machine for the last couple of days and am perfectly happy with the results. On the other hand, if your workload requires anything processor or graphics intensive, you're going to want to pimp this thing out — or seriously consider picking up a desktop with the word "Pro" in the name.
On the Mac mini's price:

Marco Arment:
Apple lent me a high-end configuration for review — 6-core i7, 32 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD — which would cost $2499 (much of which is the SSD). This would’ve sounded crazy to spend on a Mac Mini a few years ago, but when it’s specced up like this, it’s targeting a much higher-end market than the previous model could. Compared to similarly specced iMacs and MacBook Pros, the pricing is generally reasonable.
TechCrunch's Brian Heater:
For the budget-strapped, it’s also easy to flinch at the $300 price increase on the base-level. While it’s true that the components are pricier this time, it’s hard to shake the feeling that the company has priced out the true entry-level user this time out, in favor of offering a product that’s more of a gateway into the Pro ecosystem.

Pricing on the Mac mini starts at $799 for the base model with a 3.6GHz processor, 128GB of storage, and 8GB RAM and goes up to $4,199 for a maxed out machine with 3.2GHz Core i7 processor, 64GB RAM, a 2TB SSD, and the upgraded 10Gb Ethernet option.

The Mac mini is available for purchase from Apple's online store. Orders will be delivered on November 7, the day that it will be available for purchase in retail stores.

Новейшую версию защиты Denuvo 5.2 взломали
В свежей игре Football Manager 2019 разработчики использовали новейшую версию защиты Denuvo, под номером 5.2. Как сообщается, группа хакеров FCKDRM заявила о взломе через пять дней после релиза игры.
Предполагается, что та же версия будет использована в Hitman 2 и Battlefield 5, а также Just Cause 4. При этом в Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, FIFA 19, Monster Hunter World, Shadow of the Tomb Raider и Dragon Quest XI использовали Denuvo 4.9, которую пока не удалось обойти. Таким образом, в войне защитников и противников DRM первые снова проиграли. Хотя ситуация может измениться.
Напомним, что ранее компания GOG инициировала дискуссию о DRM-защите в играх, книгах и фильмах. Также напомним, что антипиратская защита Denuvo Anti-Tamper появилась в 2014 году. Её разрабатывает компания Denuvo Software Solutions
Ранее нынешний владелец Denuvo, компания Irdetoзаявила, что намерена создать античит-систему для онлайновых игр. Хотя технические аспекты системы не уточнялись.

last week

Gaming time

Over a month ago I decided to make some changes that were intended to reduce the amount of time I waste on time-demanding (and perhaps not so enjoyable) games. This week I took a few minutes to see how I've been getting on.

The time I spent playing games (I think this is all time-sucking games with a few minutes here and there - I haven't played a "proper" computer game in ages) over the last few months:

July: 11 hours, 46 minutes August: 13 hours, 18 minutes September: 9 hours, 10 minutes (changes made towards the end) October: 4 hours, 49 minutes

So it's gone down, by quite a lot. But I still spent nearly 5 hours chasing time limited bonuses, taking part in time limited contests and recharging/rebuilding some numbers in a database!

I want to get back to gaming that builds reactions and skills (yes, they might only be skills at a game but it's better than repeated drudgery where you inevitably do better because you've upgraded things - a few minutes here and there really not being enough to build a skill anyway). Or maybe even gaming with other real people who you can speak to afterwards!

Exhausting meetings

Another week with a lot of time spent in phone and physical meetings. These seem to take so much energy, especially the physical meetings - I'm always exhausted by the time I get back. The meetings were mostly for consultancy clients this week and they've come with a lot of required background thinking and planning, which probably hasn't helped my feeling of tiredness. Unfortunately it also means there's going to be a lot of writing in next weeks schedule.

php (WordPress) development environment

I don't do much in PHP but this week I've ended up building two development/testing environments for WordPress related things.

One was just for a one-time test to work out how (if) a data migration from Magento to Woocommerce would work. For this I used the super simple Scotch Box which provided all the basics. Then I copied over a couple of databases (with mysqldump, etc) and copied the website files - that was it, a working and easily disposable testing environment. The Magento to Woocommerce migration seemed to work quite well too!

The second environment was for actual, and ongoing, development. My PaTMa blog is using WordPress and I'm working on a custom theme so that I can make it more consistent with the application site. Then my intention is to also use WordPress for the marketing site for PaTMa, leaving just the actual application as a Django based bespoke site. I've previously played with the Vagrant approach for this too, but it felt a bit heavier/slower than I wanted. Thankfully it didn't take long to find (be reminded of really) PHP's built-in web server , work out a few PHP dependencies (I already have MySQL installed on my main dev machine) and make use of the excellent WP-CLI to make an empty WordPress site all ready for some theme development.

In case it's useful to anyone, here's what I actually did:

sudo apt install php7.2-cli php-mysql curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar -o wp chmod +x wp mkdir test-wp cd test-wp ../wp core download ../wp core config --dbname=test_wp --dbuser=root --dbpass=root --dbhost=localhost ../wp db create ../wp core install --url=http://localhost:8000 --title=Test --admin_user=admin --admin_password=password --admin_email=admin@example.com php -S localhost:8000

Then point a browser at http://localhost:8000/ to see a basic, default WordPress site.

One final step for me was linking my development theme into this new WordPress install:

cd wp-content/themes ln -s ../../../my-theme

I then logged in as admin and activated my development theme, all ready for work.

Bricks and Blocks

Saturday included a visit to a Bricks and Blocks event that the local scout group ran. I was quite surprised by how large the event was; there were a lot of great things on display including an infinite (ie circular) ball-run made entirely from Lego and a Robot Wars stall. The Robot Wars display included several full size robots, including one being demo'd; plus a mini arena with mini robots for the "children" to try out. The range of Lego was also impressive with all sorts from town to Star Wars to the new Harry Potter. Even the ancient Fabuland had a stall, much to the delight of our youngest (who's a fan of some Fabuland books I still have).

Uneventful budget

Having set aside my Monday afternoon to watch the budget - so I could react quickly and get any changes required for the buy-to-let profit calculations , I was quite pleased it was pretty bored, especially on the landlord and property front.

Property

I had a great chat with Susannah Cole from The Good Property Company - some fantastic insights.

Desarrolladores creen que Sony y Microsoft tienen filosofías distintas.

La realidad virtual será uno de los elementos claves de la nueva generación de consolas, al menos en lo referente a una de ellas. Así lo cree Andrea Marinelli, de Frost Earth Studio, equipo que acaba de lanzar Mind Labyrinth VR Dreams para PlayStation 4 y PC. Según Marinelli, la realidad virtual seguirá siendo clave en los videojuegos, aunque cree que Sony potenciará más esta característica que Microsoft.

Un mercado que Sony que quiere explotar


Sony está dispuesta a seguir apostando por PlayStation VR y su tecnología. Las últimas patentes lo dejan caer y su alianza con fabricantes como Lenovo evidencian que su solución para el mercado de la realidad virtual, seguirá unos cuantos años. PlayStation VR es un éxito de ventas a nivel de hardware y Andrea Marinelli piensa que Sony no dejará pasar su oportunidad de estrenar un nuevo caso de nueva generación con PlayStation 5.

Vídeo:



"Y espero que su nueva consola sea lo suficientemente potente para asegurarnos de que puede mover juegos de realidad virtual a más calidad y resolución, y sobre todo, que lancen un pack de realidad virtual que mejore la configuración de los actuales cascos de realidad virtual", explicaba a GamingBolt. "Sería genial tener modos específicos para desarrollar en realidad virtual", afirmaba Andrea. Pero, ¿apoyará Microsoft esta tecnología en consolas? Marinelli no lo tiene claro.

"¿Para Sony? Sí, seguirán apostando por un mercado con potencial y crecimiento. Microsoft ha decidido ignorar la realidad virtual durante esta generación"

"¿Para Sony? Sí, seguirán apostando por un mercado con potencial y crecimiento. Para Microsoft es difícil de decir, porque parece que han decidido ignorar la realidad virtual un poco durante esta generación", concluía. De hecho, las apreciaciones de Marinelli son más optimistas que las de los creadores de EVE Online, que esperaban mucho más de la realidad virtual com mercado. Sin ir más lejos, Microsoft sigue pensando que existen desafíos para la realidad virtual en el salón y en las consolas pese a que Xbox One X se anuncio como 'compatible' con esta tecnología.

          Red Dead Redemption 2: Así se ha censurado la violencia en Japón      Cache   Translate Page      
La versión nipona elimina secuencias de sexo, mutilación o muy sangrientas.

En el mundo de los videojuegos, es muy común que determinados títulos salgan censurados, adaptados o modificados según los territorios. Países como Alemania o Australia son muy severos con la violencia y la sangre en los juegos y el ocio digital, y durante años, muchos títulos han llegado mutilados o adaptados a sus mercados. Japón es otro caso especial, y Red Dead Redemption 2, el excesivo videojuego de Rockstar, ha sufrido la censura en su lanzamiento nipón.

Así es la versión normal y la censurada japonesa


A través del canal Censored Gaming, experto en destacar los cambios o cortes que sufren los videojuegos en determinados países para su comercialización acorde a las leyes vigentes del territorio, ha centrado su último vídeo en la censura existente en la epopeya del Salvaje Oeste de los padres de GTA.



Uno de los cambios más notorios es la reducción del gore o la violencia explícita. En el videojuego de Rockstar encontramos mutilaciones, y podemos incluso disparar para desmembrar a los enemigos, permitiéndonos crear una auténtica bacanal de sangre, vísceras y huesos. Sin embargo, la versión japonesa elimina esta posibilidad en varios enteros. Este aspecto llega incluso a influir en ciertos aspectos de la narrativa de la historia o el universo del juego, creándose un contexto distinto para distintas situaciones en las misiones.

En Japón el Salvaje Oeste es 'Salvaje' pero no mucho

En relación al sexo o las secuencias más íntimas, el juego es muy radical y distinto. Así pues, si en la edición de Occidente tenemos escenas en la que los personajes disfrutan en burdeles o incluso se ven practicando el coito, en la edición japonesa encontramos un cambio en la iluminación, la vestimenta o la disposición de los NPC virtuales para suavizarlo. De hecho, esto se extiende también a las opciones de diálogo, que se modifican para ser más acordes a lo que se está visualizando. La censura ha sido protagonista hoy en el juego de Ubisoft Rainbow Six Siege, que ha sido alterado para llegar a mercados asiáticos.

La fauna del título de Rockstar ataca cuando menos te lo esperas.

Después de que ayer os habláramos de los terribles árboles que existen en Red Dead Redemption 2, hoy es el turno de la fauna del Salvaje Oeste.

Y es que hay que estar muy atento no sólo a los peligros que tenemos frente a nuestra mira del revólver... también tenemos que cuidar nuestras espaldas. Esta valiosa lección le costó la vida al jugador BasX, que contó su "hazaña" en Reddit acompañando el momento por un GIF:


Cacería en el Salvaje Oeste


Después de disparar a un águila que estaba posada, todo hay que decirlo, precariamente en el borde de un acantilado, el jugador se dispuso a ir hacia ella para arrancar sus plumas y coger su botín. Sin embargo... no contaba con que un puma iba a abalanzarse sobre él.

Tras asestarle un indudablemente mortal mordisco en el cuello, por si no fuera poco Arthur Morgan cayó por el precipicio. Y es que Rockstar ya advirtió de que los animales en Red Dead Redemption 2 seguirían unas pautas de comportamiento según la época del año: "Los diversos hábitats y climas de Red Dead Redemption 2 albergarán alrededor de 200 especies de animales, pájaros y peces, cada uno de ellos con su propio comportamiento y respuesta única a su ecosistema natural".

          Rockstar Ports Its Old, Antiquated, Flawed Censorial Blacklist For Player Chat Into New 'Red Dead Redemption' Game      Cache   Translate Page      

Those familiar with how multiplayer online gaming works know that inter-player chat is both a feature of this gaming genre and one of its primary hellscapes. On the one hand, in-game chat can be both fun when it's part of the game and funny when you get lively banter between players. On the other hand, such chat is also rife with stupid, sophomoric, abusive language casually bandied about by teens and adults alike. Because of this, some game developers have tried to limit what words can be inputted into the game's chat system. The end result of this is mostly spectacular creativity for players dedicated to being assholes in getting around such systems. But for Rockstar, when it came to the online portion of Grand Theft Auto, this chat blacklist was also a place to stupidly blacklist references to illicit gaming sites like "The Pirate Bay", meaning users entering that text would see their words simply disappeared.

But this all gets doubly stupid now that Rockstar is set to release Red Dead Redemption 2, within which it simply ported over its previous blacklist.

As revealed by a user on Reddit, the company has implemented a banned words list, which attempts to deter people from using some of the worst sexual, racial, and religious insults, which is fair enough.

However, the developer has also seen fit to prevent players from talking about sites like The Pirate Bay, with the word ‘PirateBay’ banned from the game. Since the galaxy’s most resilient torrent site is hardly a friend of the gaming industry, the decision is not that much of a surprise. However, the developer goes much further with a whole range of bizarre censoring decisions that start of weirdly and get worse.

Taking them in alphabetical order, first up we have the term ‘BTJunkie’, which refers to a once-prominent torrent indexing site. What’s so special about this platform is that it’s been shut for well over six years. In fact, the site closed down for good in 2012following the massive raid on Kim Dotcom. Safe to say, it’s not coming back.

The examples go on from there. Now, there are a couple of things to say about this. Obviously blacklisting long-dead websites, even if it would have been once understandable that a game developer would want to keep those names out of the game chat, is painfully stupid. I'm not sure what Rockstar thinks it was accomplishing by keeping those site names out of their game chat when those sites were live, but I'm super-certain that they're accomplishing nothing by doing so when those sites are dead. And because, of course, there is the inevitable collateral damage caused by such word-bans.

The initialism ‘VCDQ’ has also made it onto Rockstar’s Great Firewall, which is nothing short of ridiculous. VCDQ – otherwise known as VCDQuality – was a site that reported on freshly-leaked pirate copies of movies and commented on the quality of the release. The site never offered copyrighted content and was a really useful platform. It too has been dead for a number of years.

The other thing to say about this is simply that any company that would so callously treat chat censorship in this way, where the company thinks that a simple port of old blacklists would suffice, is a company that doesn't care much for its own players. Gaming companies can put in these blacklists if they like, and they might be good things when it comes to hateful and abusive language, but they should do so with care. Gamer interaction is kind of a key component of online multiplayer, after all. To treat banning words with so little regard isn't a great look.

So, the end result? Anyone want to place money betting that this censorship of its own customers has made Red Dead 2 free from abusive language and conduct? Or that there aren't more examples of collateral damage out there, specifically since the blacklist also bans the word "Torrent" entirely?

I didn't think so.

          Mapping the economy in real time is almost ‘within our grasp’       Cache   Translate Page      
 


Andy Haldane, BoE chief economist, says economists should embrace data flood
It should be said here that Andy Haldane also knows about Transfinancial Economics, and the notion of "mapping the economy in real time..." is clearly indicated in the following article. Though Big Data is part of the TFE Paradigm it is only part of the whole picture for a modern futuristic economics...  See   https://wiki.p2pfoundation.net/Transfinancial_Economics





The goal of mapping economic activity in real time, just as we do for weather or traffic, is “closer than ever to being within our grasp”, according to Andy Haldane, the Bank of England’s chief economist. In recent years, “data has become the new oil . . . and data companies have become the new oil giants”, Mr Haldane told an audience at King’s Business School earlier this month and released on Monday. But economics and finance have been “rather reticent about fully embracing this oil-rush”, partly because economists have tended to prefer a deductive approach that puts theory ahead of measurement. This needs to change, he said, because relying too much on either theory or real-world data in isolation can lead to serious mistakes in policymaking — as was seen when the global financial crisis exposed the “empirical fragility” of macroeconomic models.


 Parts of the private sector and academia have been far swifter to exploit the vast troves of ever-accumulating data now available — 90 per cent of which has been created in the last two years alone.  Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s “Billion Prices Project”, name-checked in Mr Haldane’s speech, now collects enough data from online retailers for its commercial arm to provide daily inflation updates for 22 economies. The Alan Turing Institute — the UK’s new national institute for data science — runs a programme, with funding from HSBC, which aims to use new data to measure economic activity faster and more precisely than was previously possible. National statisticians are taking tentative steps in the same direction. The UK’s Office for National Statistics — which has faced heavy criticism over the quality of its data in recent years — is experimenting with “web-scraping” to collect price quotes for food and groceries, for example, and making use of VAT data from small businesses to improve its output-based estimates of gross domestic product. In both cases, the increased sample size and granularity could bring considerable benefits on top of existing surveys, Mr Haldane said. The BoE itself is trying to make better use of financial data — for example, by using administrative data on owner-occupied mortgages to better understand pricing decisions in the UK housing market. Recommended Analysis UK politics & policy Starting gun prepped in race to replace Mark Carney at Bank of England Mr Haldane sees scope to go further with the new data coming on stream on payment, credit and banking flows. “Almost all economic activity leaves a financial footprint,” he said. “In time, it is possible that these sorts of data could help to create a real-time map of financial and activity flows across the economy, in much the same way as is already done for flows of traffic or information or weather.

Once mapped, there would then be scope to model and, through policy, modify these flows.” New data sources and techniques could also help policymakers think about human decision-making — which rarely conforms with the rational process assumed in many economic models. Data on music downloads from Spotify, used as an indicator of sentiment, has recently been shown to do at least as well as a standard consumer confidence survey in tracking consumer spending. “Why stop at music?” Mr Haldane asked. He saw potential to create a gaming environment “to explore behaviour in a virtual economy where players can spend or save, and one could test their reactions to monetary and regulatory policy intervention”.

eSports: A new window on neurocognitive expertise?

Prog Brain Res. 2018;240:161-174

Authors: Campbell MJ, Toth AJ, Moran AP, Kowal M, Exton C

Abstract
Understanding the neurological changes that take place as expertise develops is a central topic in both cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Here, we argue that video games, despite previous misconceptions, are an excellent model environment from which one can examine the development of neurocognitive expertise. Of particular relevance we argue is the area of esports, which encompass video/computer games played within the medium of cyberspace competitively and increasingly professionally. The massive scale of participation, controlled environments, structured skill ratings, pervasive social nature, and large repositories of data, together make esports potentially a very fruitful area for scientific research to increase our understanding of a new era of cognitive athletes. This chapter reviews the progress and prospects for esports research with a particular focus on the effects of gaming on neurocognition. We also outline some exciting new avenues and techniques from which we hope to further elucidate the benefits of esports on the brain.

          Rockstar Ports Its Old, Antiquated, Flawed Censorial Blacklist For Player Chat Into New 'Red Dead Redemption' Game      Cache   Translate Page      

Those familiar with how multiplayer online gaming works know that inter-player chat is both a feature of this gaming genre and one of its primary hellscapes. On the one hand, in-game chat can be both fun when it's part of the game and funny when you get lively banter between players. On the other hand, such chat is also rife with stupid, sophomoric, abusive language casually bandied about by teens and adults alike. Because of this, some game developers have tried to limit what words can be inputted into the game's chat system. The end result of this is mostly spectacular creativity for players dedicated to being assholes in getting around such systems. But for Rockstar, when it came to the online portion of Grand Theft Auto, this chat blacklist was also a place to stupidly blacklist references to illicit gaming sites like "The Pirate Bay", meaning users entering that text would see their words simply disappeared.

But this all gets doubly stupid now that Rockstar is set to release Red Dead Redemption 2, within which it simply ported over its previous blacklist.

As revealed by a user on Reddit, the company has implemented a banned words list, which attempts to deter people from using some of the worst sexual, racial, and religious insults, which is fair enough.

However, the developer has also seen fit to prevent players from talking about sites like The Pirate Bay, with the word ‘PirateBay’ banned from the game. Since the galaxy’s most resilient torrent site is hardly a friend of the gaming industry, the decision is not that much of a surprise. However, the developer goes much further with a whole range of bizarre censoring decisions that start of weirdly and get worse.

Taking them in alphabetical order, first up we have the term ‘BTJunkie’, which refers to a once-prominent torrent indexing site. What’s so special about this platform is that it’s been shut for well over six years. In fact, the site closed down for good in 2012following the massive raid on Kim Dotcom. Safe to say, it’s not coming back.

The examples go on from there. Now, there are a couple of things to say about this. Obviously blacklisting long-dead websites, even if it would have been once understandable that a game developer would want to keep those names out of the game chat, is painfully stupid. I'm not sure what Rockstar thinks it was accomplishing by keeping those site names out of their game chat when those sites were live, but I'm super-certain that they're accomplishing nothing by doing so when those sites are dead. And because, of course, there is the inevitable collateral damage caused by such word-bans.

The initialism ‘VCDQ’ has also made it onto Rockstar’s Great Firewall, which is nothing short of ridiculous. VCDQ – otherwise known as VCDQuality – was a site that reported on freshly-leaked pirate copies of movies and commented on the quality of the release. The site never offered copyrighted content and was a really useful platform. It too has been dead for a number of years.

The other thing to say about this is simply that any company that would so callously treat chat censorship in this way, where the company thinks that a simple port of old blacklists would suffice, is a company that doesn't care much for its own players. Gaming companies can put in these blacklists if they like, and they might be good things when it comes to hateful and abusive language, but they should do so with care. Gamer interaction is kind of a key component of online multiplayer, after all. To treat banning words with so little regard isn't a great look.

So, the end result? Anyone want to place money betting that this censorship of its own customers has made Red Dead 2 free from abusive language and conduct? Or that there aren't more examples of collateral damage out there, specifically since the blacklist also bans the word "Torrent" entirely?

I didn't think so.

  • Game Review: Lamplight City

    The universe of Lamplight City is rich, complex and oddly familiar. The game draws on that ever-popular theme of a steampunk alternative universe, adding dashes of Victorian squalor and just a pinch of 1950's detective tropes. Is it just a mishmash of clichés then? Yes, but it all works well together to form a likable and somewhat unique universe—like a cheesy movie, you can't help but fall in love with Lamplight City.

  • Epicinium, a turn-based strategy game where nature is a finite resource is now on Kickstarter

    Epicinium from developer A Bunch of Hacks has hit Kickstarter. It's an interesting strategy game, one where nature is a finite resource you must try to not destroy during your war. Your score will depend on how much is actually left when the dust settles, so it's an interesting take on the genre.

          Producer Tetsuya Nomura on Final Fantasy VII Remake      Cache   Translate Page      

Producer Tetsuya Nomura at an event for The World Ends with You: Final Remix discussed Final Fantasy VII Remake.

"Not everyone may know this, but I’m remaking Final Fantasy VII… (laughs)," said Nomura. "Right now I’m concentrating on Kingdom Hearts III, but when that’s finished, VII will be where I head next.


"I’m thinking about ideas regarding the remake’s release—I even spoke to producer Kitase about it today. All of us old-timers are considering various developments in regards to what accompanies the remake. Like if we can manage to do something about the Compilation [of Final Fantasy VII] titles too. But for the time being, please wait for VII‘s turn to come."

Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for PlayStation 4.

Thanks Gematsu.

The survival horror game from Endnight Games, The Forest, has sold over 5.3 million units worldwide since it launched on Steam Early Access in 2014. It left Early Access on April 30. 

 

Here is an overview of the game:

As the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash, you find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants. 

Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.

Key Features:

Enter a living, breathing world, where every tree and plant can be chopped down. Below ground explore a vast network of caves and underground lakes. 

  • Chop down trees to build a camp, or start a fire to keep warm. Scavenge food to keep yourself from starving. 
  • Build a small shelter or a large ocean side fortress. Lay traps and defences to keep a safe perimeter. 
  • Explore and build during the day. Defend your base at night. Craft weapons and tools. Bunker down during the evening or bring the fight directly to the enemy. 
  • Defend yourself against a clan of genetic mutant enemies that have beliefs, families, morals and that appear almost human. 
  • Use stealth to evade enemies, or engage them directly with crude weapons built from sticks and stones.

The Forest launched on November 6 for the PlayStation 4.

          U.S. Patent No. 5,184,830: Compact hand-held video game system      Cache   Translate Page      
U.S. Patent No. 5,184,830: Compact hand-held video game system
Issued February 9, 1993, to Nintendo Co., Ltd.
Priority Date: January 10, 1989


Summary:
U.S. Patent No. 5,184,830 is the American patent for the original Game Boy released in 1989. Nintendo filed the patent first in Japan and then in 1992 filed at the USPTO. The USPTO granted the 1989 priority date based on the Japan application. The patent describes a handheld gaming system that utilizes cartridges to store the game data. Game cartridges would be inserted into a slot on the back of the system. A switch on the top would turn the system on and off. The user is supposed to grip the systems with both hands so that the user's thumbs rest upon the face buttons. Character movement was assigned to the D-pad while the A and B buttons handle action inputs. The Game Boy also featured a start and select button located at the bottom of the face plate. The start button typically started or paused the game, while the select button allowed players to select a game mode if offered. The Game Boy needed four AA batteries to operate, but the batteries could last up to thirty hours.

Nintendo released the Game Boy first in Japan on April 21, 1989, and then in North America on July 31, 1989. By the end of the Game Boy's lifespan, including the Game Boy Color, over 118 million units were sold. In 2009, the Game Boy was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.

Abstract:
A hand-held electronic game machine for use with attachable/detachable memory game packs wherein the game machine includes a case of a size which may be held by a hand and capable of being sandwiched by both hands with a first switch disposed at a position such that during a game it can be operated by one thumb on a front surface of the case, a second switch disposed at a position such that during a game it can be operated by the other thumb on the first surface of the case and a third operation switch means provided in a region of said front surface where imaginary loci of both thumbs intersect with each other on the front surface, and wherein the game machine can be connected with others for simultaneous multiple player competition.

Illustrative Claim:
1. A hand-held electronic game machine, comprising: a case of a size which may be held by hand and having a subsonically rectangularly shape defined by a front surface, a rear surface, two latitudinal side surfaces, a lower side surface and an upper side surface, each of said two longitudinal side surfaces being of greater length than each of said lower side surface and said upper side surface, said case being sandwiched by both hands during game play, said front surface having an upper front surface portion bounded by an upper portion of each of said longitudinal side surfaces and a lower front surfaced portion bounded by a lower portion of each of said longitudinal side surfaces; a first operation switch disposed on a right portion of said lower front surface portion of said case such that during game play it can be operated by a thumb of a player's right hand sandwiching said case; a second operation switch disposed on a left portion of said lower front surface portion of said case such that during game play it can be operated by a thumb of a player's left hand sandwiching said case; a dot-matrix liquid crystal display panel including a display screen defining a matrix of rows and columns of dots disposed on said upper front surface portion such that in use said display shown is positioned above said first operation switch and said second operation switch; an insertion portion formed on said upper side surface of said case and extending, in use, behind said dot-matrix liquid crystal display panel in said case; an external memory attachably and detachably insertable into said insertion portion from said upper side surface of said case for storing a game program and background character data and moving object character data with which images for a game are displayed on said display screen; game processing means housed in said case for reading said game program and said background character data and moving object character data from said external memory and controlling the display of moving objects on said display screen in response to the actuation of said first operation switch and said second operation switch and for controlling the display of background characters on said display screen; a connector housed in said case for connecting said external memory being inserted in said insertion portion to said game processing means; a memory housed in said case and associated with said game processing means for storing said background character data and said moving object character data read from said external memory by said game processing means and transferred through said connector; display signal generating means housed in said case for generating display signals for displaying background characters and moving objects on the basis of said background character data and said moving object character data stored in said memory; a driver for driving said dot-matrix liquid crystal display panel in response to said display signals generated by said display signal generating means to display said background characters and said moving objects on said display screen, said driver including a first driver for driving said dot-matrix liquid crystal display panel in columns and a second driver for driving said liquid crystal display panel in rows.

          Okarina Musikinstrument ab 8,16€ (bekannt aus Zelda – Ocarina of Time)      Cache   Translate Page      
Neupreis: 8,16€
Zum Angebot (gearbest.com)

Nerds und Zelda Fans aufgepasst, die legendäre Okarina aus dem Spiel "The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time" ist nun für 8,16€ auf Gearbest.com erhältlich. Natürlich ist das nicht die echte Okarina, denn die ist schließlich immer noch im Besitz unseres Helden Link, aber es ist eine nahezu perfekte Imitation mit der ihr zwar keine Stürme heraufbeschwören, aber vor euren Freunden damit angeben könnt.

Dieses schicke Fan Gadget ist nicht nur Dekoration, sondern kann auch noch als richtiges Instrument genutzt werden und ist so perfekt für Musikliebhaber. Schließlich werden die Okarinas bereits seit Tausenden von Jahren als Musikinstrument genutzt. Für diesen niedrigen Preis kann man die Okarina auch als Einsteiger Okarina benutzen um damit zu lernen. Diese Okarina ist eine 12-Loch Okarina was trotz ihrer Form keinen hörbaren Unterschied machen soll. Dem Lieferumfang liegt außerdem ein Halter für die Okarina bereits bei. Damit kann man die Okarina entsprechend auch an jedem beliebigen Platz als Dekoration platzieren wie beispielsweise auf einer Fensterbank, einem Regal oder in seinem persönlichen Zelda-Schrein. Natürlich ist die Okarina auch perfekt für Events geeignet, wie Cosplay Events oder großen Gaming Messen. Das Material der Okarina soll aus Knochenporzellan bestehen, oder es zu mindestens imitieren. Knochenporzellan gilt als das beste und edelste Porzellan. Wer also noch nach einem Geschenk für seinen Zelda-Fanboy im Freundeskreis sucht, macht hiermit nichts falsch.

Testberichte / Erfahrungen / Meinungen

Die Rezensionen auf Gearbest.com fallen relativ positiv aus. Bei einer Okarina aus Porzellan kann aber eigentlich nicht viel schiefgehen, da die meisten diese sowieso als Dekorationsstück nutzen werden. Und selbst die Käufer die dieses Instrument spielen lernen wollen, können hier nicht viel falsch machen.

Features

  • Material: Knochenporzellan
  • Kann als richtiges Instrument benutzt werden
  • Geeignet für Fans, Musikliebhaber und Lernende

          Artifacts and Artifice, Volume 1 (5E)      Cache   Translate Page      
Artifacts  and  Artifice, Volume 1 (5E)Publisher: Infinium Game Studios

Check out the free PDF Abhorrent Naginata to get a sense of what to expect.


Artifacts and amp; Artifice is a valuable GM resource for all RPG players and game/dungeon masters.

Far, far more than a simple list of magic items, AA strives to make each item unique. and nbsp; With extensive etymology, backstory, context, and hooks, and nbsp;

This inaugural tome presents 47 unique and complex magical items, each bursting with over and nbsp;8 pages of content.

Specifically, each and every artifact receives the following detail:

  • Full profiles and construction requirements for and nbsp;4 magic items and nbsp;corresponding to a range of Variable Difficulties.
  • 4 NPCs, and nbsp;each fully stat-blocked and scaling to Variable Difficulties.
  • History, and nbsp;description, appearance, and other "fluff" for flavor.
  • Over a half-dozen and nbsp;hooks and nbsp;for integrating the weapon into your campaign.
  • Handfuls of Rumors and amp; Lore and nbsp;with full and nbsp;FlexTable and nbsp;rules for dynamically integrating the rumors into your campaign.
  • One or more Quests ready to run in any campaign setting, incorporating the magic item.
  • Handfuls of and nbsp;Quest Seeds and nbsp;to give GMs with more prep time inspiration.

Some sample items from this book:

  • The Potion Gorget, an innovative leather neckpiece that lets the wearer imbibe potions quickly in combat.
  • The Vorpal Scabbard, a sheath that grants benefits to any weapon stored therein.
  • The Corset of Last Resort, a seemingly cosmetic bodice of particular use by concubines in rough neighborhoods.
  • The Mistskin Suit, a leather suit that grants incorporality effects to the wearer.

The Artifacts and amp; Artifice approach is not to simply list out another boring magical item. and nbsp;Each item receives an enormous amount of lavish detail, description, Quests, and even wielding NPCs. and nbsp; and nbsp;

Artifacts and amp; Artifice and nbsp;is an approach intended to achieve many goals:

  • Add unique, interesting, and useful and nbsp;magical items and nbsp;(weapons, armor, spells, artifacts, wands, rods, rings, potions, and much more) and nbsp;to any RPG campaign.
  • Serve as a sourcebook of quick and easy-to-insert and nbsp;Quests and nbsp;and and nbsp;NPCs and nbsp;featuring the new items, that can be used in any RPG campaign or adventure.
  • Be more than simply a "list of items and stats", making it easy for any GM to integrate the items into any campaign.

Each magical item in the Artifacts and amp; Artifice line includes the following:

  • Description and and nbsp;crunch and nbsp;effect, cost, etc. with example statblock(s) and nbsp;
  • History and nbsp;and background and nbsp;
  • Rumors and nbsp;and lore and nbsp;
  • One or more and nbsp;quad-statted and nbsp;NPCs, and nbsp;who uses the item as part of their gear
  • Hooks and nbsp;to integrate the item into any campaign or adventure and nbsp;
  • At least one and nbsp;Quest and nbsp;featuring the item, its effects, its history, or the NPC example.


Innovation

This product incorporates several innovative and creative tools your gaming group can use to use the content for a party of any size, and any level. and nbsp;These approaches also enable a great deal of flexibility in portraying richly-detailed NPCs, and tracking interactions with them.

Fallout 76 is currently in beta, and it’s got a lot of bugs, but that’s to be expected. Not just because it’s a beta, but also because it’s a great big Bethesda game. The game is being developed using the same engine that runs Fallout 4, so it has a lot in common with the game that had players wandering around Boston, collecting junk and building settlements. It appears to be just as easy to mod.

          The Man in the Tower Suite ~ Henry Percy, the Ninth Earl of Northumberland       Cache   Translate Page      
by Linda Root

Henry Percy, Ninth Earl of Northumberland, {{PD-Art}}

For seventeen years (1605-1622)  the Martin Tower Suite in the Tower of London complex housed a most illustrious guest. He was a gentleman of high fashion,  undisputed good looks, and a keen intellect, loyal to his friends and congenial to his hosts. We can hardly call his keepers jailers since they went to considerable lengths to assure his comfort and entertainment.

There are 21 towers in the complex known as the Tower of London and vague records as to which prisoners were housed in which ones. However, the Ninth Earl of Northumberland Henry Percy's occupancy of the Martin Tower was well known. Apparently, his rooms occupied most if not all of it.  He entertained often and lavishly and used it as the center of operations for his widespread business enterprises. Among his frequent guests were his son and heir, his pet fox and Sir Walter Raleigh. From his arrival at his lodgings on the 27th of November, 1605, the man his contemporaries called The Wizard Earl made himself very much at home. November 1605 was the month of the Gunpowder Treason, which brought Northumberland to the Tower. If rumors circulating in 1622 held a modicum of truth, when he was released, he was loathed to leave.

At one point the Northumberland apartment housed much of his celebrated library. His was one of the largest collections of books in Britain. They covered a broad range of topics, many related to his strong interest in alchemy.  His interest in natural philosophy, what we call science, earned him the moniker The Wizard Earl.

By the time of his arrest in 1605, Percy had adopted an urban lifestyle and made Sion House in Isleworth, a London suburb, his principal residence.  The magnificent mansion was inherited through his wife Dorothy Devereux, daughter of the Earl of Essex.  It remains in the family to this day.

Earlier, as a young man living in Paris, he had been captured by a young man's traditional fancies--the riding, the hunt, the gaming, and the many mistresses, he confessed.  But he professed to having returned to  England with only one mistress claiming him, and that was Knowledge.

Northumberland was drawn into the Gunpowder Treason investigation due to his association with his second cousin Thomas Percy, indisputably one of the principals in the plot.  1605 was not the first time the earl's conduct regarding Cousin Tom got him into trouble.  He had made him Constable of Alnwyck, the Percy ancestral home in Northumberland, with it many acres of adjoining farm land. Alnwyck was but one of many of his real estate holdings in Northumberland, an income producing enterprise for the Earl.

No one is quite certain as to why Northumberland chose Thomas Percy as its overseer. In addition to making him his Constable, he gave Thomas Percy control over his accounts and the responsibility for collecting revenues and land rents.  Accusations from the tenants of misappropriation of rents and other acts of overreaching abounded, but the earl did not investigate. Charges were actually brought against Thomas by his benefactor's tenants, and they, too, were overlooked.

J.M.W. Turner -Wikimedia Commons -{{PD-=Art}}

Tom Percy was also involved with Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex in a failed murder plot targeting the warden of the Scottish Middle Marches, none other than the firebrand reiver laird Robert Kerr of Cessford, who later became Baron Roxburghe, one of King James I's favorites. Sir Robert Kerr of Cessford was both anti-Catholic and anti-Marian, which put him at odds with Percy and Essex.

In spite of his controversial conduct, in 1601 Thomas accompanied Northumberland on a military expedition to the Low Countries where he is said to have comported himself well. Northumberland received some criticism, possibly from Lord Robert Cecil, for having given Percy positions for which he should have been vetted without requiring him to attest to his religion or sign a Declaration of Faith. Thus, even before the Gunpowder Treason was uncovered, Northumberland's lenient treatment of his cousin had placed him at odds with Cecil, an avid anti-papist like his father Lord Burghley had been.

Northumberland had been raised in his aunt's house as a Protestant but was believed by many to be sympathetic to the Catholic cause. There were also rumors that Cousin Thomas was more than a cousin, perhaps an illegitimate brother. Thomas Percy, like the other principals in the Gunpowder Treason, was a militant Papist to a degree his powerful cousin either did not admit or truly did not realize.

For those unfamiliar with the scheme, the purpose behind the Gunpowder Plot was to replace King James I with a sovereign sympathetic to the Catholic cause but palatable enough to English Protestants to avoid civil war. That pointed to another Stuart. There is no direct evidence that Northumberland was personally involved in the conspiracy, but there is a strong suspicion the plotters had reserved a role for him in their pro-Catholic post-Jacobean government.

The Gunpowder plotters had settled on the king's daughter Elisabeth, who was nine as a replacement for her father.  Her older brother Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales, was eleven, a student at Oxford, and already an outspoken Protestant with a priggish moral sense, critical of his father's religious tolerance and his mother's thinly veiled Catholicism. The conspirators expected him to be in the royal entourage at the opening of Parliament and would die along with his father. The nine-year-old princess lived in the country and was not expected to attend. Her younger brother Charles, Duke of York was a slow-developing child who failed to thrive at birth and at age five had only recently begun to walk and talk, albeit with a shuffle and a stutter,  living in relative seclusion in the home of Robert Carey. He was sufficiently lackluster to earn no consideration from anyone, including the plotters.  Elisabeth, being female, could be made a puppet of the Catholic faction and eventually married off to an appropriate Catholic European prince.  While she was herself a Protestant, so young a female would be malleable and easily controlled by an appropriate Regent. Northumberland was the logical nominee.

The question perplexing modern scholars is the same one that kept him in the Tower Suite instead of laying headless on the Tower Green. No one could prove he was in on it.

Without revisiting the failure of the plot, what confined Northumberland to the Tower of London was not so much what happened on the infamous November 5, but what happened on the day before, November 4, 1605. On that day, Thomas Percy visited the earl at Sion House, ostensibly on business.  He had all of those cumbersome accounts from Northumberlandshire to review.  Whether he was really there to warn his kinsman from attending the opening of Parliament is open to conjecture. It is difficult to believe that he was spending the day before the big event reviewing ledgers with his kinsman, but there is no proof to the contrary.

When Percy arrived,  Northumberland was entertaining another guest, Thomas Hariot, a noted scholar, mathematician and astronomer who lived at Sion House and enjoyed Northumberland's patronage.  The three gentlemen had a pleasant late lunch together and thereafter, Percy left.  He next met with Catesby, the mastermind behind the plot, and thereafter left for the country to kidnap Princess Elisabeth. That evening Guy Fawkes, the plotter with the most military experience and knowledge of explosives, was discovered with the gunpowder in a search of the underpinnings of the Houses of Parliament, and the jig was up. When news reached the countryside, Tom Percy found himself running for his life, which did not last long.
When the law caught up with Thomas Percy and a cluster of the others who escaped the city, he soon was dead of a sniper's shot and unavailable to confirm or deny his cousin's complicity. Astute Northumberland was admitting nothing.

Engraving of Henry Percy-{{PD-Art}}
Fortunately for the earl,  his friend Thomas Hariot confirmed Northumberland's averments concerning the subject matter discussed at lunch on November 4th. There had been no talk of explosions or plots to kill the king. It may well be Hariot's presence thwarted Thomas's plan to warn his cousin off. Whatever the truth may have been, by the end of the week Thomas Percy's tongue was silenced. Thus, what ultimately saved Northumberland from the headsman was a lack of evidence. No one could dispute his planned attendance at the opening of Parliament on the following day.

The Earl remained out of custody until November 27th while he and others, including his personal secretary, his wife, and his friends, were interrogated. By December, Robert Cecil's focus had shifted to blaming the plot on Jesuits. When Northumberland was finally charged it was not with treason, but contempt. And there he languished.
Or did he?

Richard Lomas in A Power In The Land (Tuckwell Press, 1999) and other sources on the fate of the Gunpowder plotters speaks of the Earl's suite in the Martin Tower as having multiple dining rooms, a drawing room, gardens with access to a  tennis court, and enough space to accommodate twenty servants. And of course, there was the essential addition of a bowling alley.  His scholarly friends including Thomas Hariot maintained apartments at Sion House so they could appropriately tutor Northumberland's children.  Servants ran from Sion House to the Martin Tower with the latest imported delicacies.

While the Earl of Northumberland perfected his games of Ten Pins and read his beloved books, poured fine wine and smoked tobacco with Walter Raleigh and later dined and gambled with his fellow prisoners Lord Robert Carr, Earl of Somerset and his murderous countess Lady Frances Howard, Jesuit priests were convicted on scant evidence often gleaned from torture and treated to grisly deaths. Cecil had his scapegoats, the plotters got their just deserts, and the Earl had spare time to devote to the pursuit of knowledge and the management of his vast estates, and when he needed a distraction, he played tennis.
