The good people at NVIDIA have developed AI capable of creating photographs of people that don’t exist and cats that shouldn’t. Because this is the internet, it is the cat part you should be most interested in.
Welcome to Mosh Pit, peeps. Do you know what day it is today? It’s 14 December. How many days do you have left until Christmas? Ten. Yes, I suppose it is eleven, but are you going to be buying presents for your loved ones on Christmas Day like some noob? Probably not. So here’s your reminder to pick up those wishlists from your friends and family and get them a pressie for being awesome. Unless your family and friends are all assassins and horrible people, in which case we can’t help you. But you can hit the jump anyway. Maybe go watch Spider-Man this weekend.
The Chinese government, through the State Administration of Press and Publications (a new government wing barely five months old), has announced to the press that a recent report by the department has highlighted the government’s need to step in and regulate popular mobile games. Twenty games are in the government’s sights including PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, League of Legends, and Fortnite.
Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Xmas, Whatevermas, or just a much-needed break from everything, we wish you a very happy holiday with your backlog that you probably won’t even get to because the backlog is forever and it’s too much work and besides, this other game is out now and you’ll finish your backlog in 2019, promise.
While we’re out goofing off doing other super important stuff, Wesley Fick and our new tinsel-elf intern Christine King will be keeping you company under the mistletoe (but not like that) with regular, extra-festive-with-jingle-bells-and-Dane-smells content updates until 7 January when we get back from, you know, that other super important stuff. K bye.
The Los Angeles office of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare developer were evacuated by local police yesterday after a bomb threat was called in – one of a number of similar reports around the same time, apparently linked to a bitcoin scam.
Artyom and his tovarishches are almost prepped to abandon the dubious safety of Moscow’s underground for a frozen post-apocalyptic wasteland and the probably no less dubious safety of a steam train called the Aurora, Ukranian developer 4A Games has confirmed, with the game now finished and off to the printers.
AMD has been keeping up its tradition of releasing major new point-releases for their Radeon Software suite at the end of the year, finishing off their work in bringing new features to the platform and starting off with a stable base for the WHQL release that is made available in 2019. It’s a good way to do it – customers get stability from features that are extensively tested, and AMD gets the spotlight to showcase what they’ve been working on. As it happens, Adrenalin 2019 is a major release, and there’s a lot to process in here. While you’re reading this, head on over to AMD’s site to start your driver download.
“What’s this? A wireless mouse for pro-level competitive players? Get outta town!” Those are the thoughts that ran through my head as I unboxed the Logitech G Pro Wireless gaming mouse.
I’ve owned numerous Logitech mice over the years, and most of them have been really good. But as I unpacked it and finally held the G Pro Wireless in my hands, I was a little underwhelmed. This rather unassuming mouse doesn’t seem like the other aggressive-looking hand-rats with which I usually play games. In fact, I barely noticed this mouse when it was launched at rAge earlier this year. I mean, it looks like just another wireless mouse for home or office use, right?
Hey, it’s that guy Rico! Rico Rodriguez! The dictatorship-toppling one man army! He’s back (baby!) to topple more dictators! He’s brought an even crazier collection of weapons and chaotic gadgets created for the sole purpose of wanton destruction! And there are weather effects this time like tornadoes and electrical storms! And there’s this gun that SHOOTS GUSTS OF WIND so you can basically catapult dudes into explosions! But not before you’ve tethered those dudes to red barrels and helium balloons that’ll also explode to make the first explosion more explosion-ey! DOUBLE EXPLOSIONS!
It sounds great! Except that it isn’t and honestly it all gets tedious fast thanks to a ton of issues. Boo.
