People are going crazy over Tetris 99

‘Tetris 99’ turns ‘Tetris’ into a fast-paced battle royale game

Nintendo revealed Tetris 99 during its Nintendo Direct livestream on Wednesday, which is available for free on Nintendo Switch. It has that classic Tetris vibe except this time you’re not just competing against falling blocks or a timer, you’re competing against 98 other players in a battle royale-style Tetris showdown.

Tetris 99 is the opposite of Tetris Effect, and it’s amazing

I used to think I was good at Tetris, but that was before I was pitted against 98 other players in a block-dropping battle to the death.

Tetris 99 Has No Tutorial, So Here’s What You Need To Know

Yesterday Nintendo announced and released Tetris 99, a battle royale-style multiplayer Tetris game for the Switch in which you play against, wait for it, 98 other players in a merciless puzzle-off. It’s out now and free to download. There’s just one problem: the game doesn’t tell you how it works.

Far Cry New Dawn Dawns

Far Cry New Dawn for Windows is now available on Steam, offering the chance to revisit a post-apocalypse Hope County, Montana to see how all that prepping worked out. The launch trailer from a couple…

Far Cry New Dawn Review

I liked the ending to Far Cry 5. There, I said it. (Spoilers for the ending of Far Cry 5 ahead, though the existence of this game probably already ruined that for you.) It may be an unpopular opinion, but I appreciated that, for once, we didn’t vanquish the bad guy, save the day, and walk off into the sunset. Joseph Seed kind of won. So I’m a little bummed that the very silly developments of Far Cry: New Dawn walk back a lot of that bleak, dark finale. That said, the very familiar Far Cry gameplay formula is just as fun as ever in the post-apocalypse, and I had a blast clearing outposts, hunting for treasure, and absolutely brutalizing the Highwaymen who have seized control of what’s left of Hope County, Montana.

Far Cry: New Dawn review impressions — small and scrappy

Far Cry: New Dawn is the latest side-story/standalone expansion from Ubisoft. Like Primal and Blood Dragon, it resues its map, but it’s also more focused.Read More

The New Apex Legends Skin Prices Are Too Damn High

Apex Legends got its first update on February 13th, and with it came Valentine’s Day-themed cosmetics. Although players have been posting online about how they are grateful for the treat, some have expressed worry about the relatively high prices of these cosmetics, and what that might say about the game’s future.

Apex Legends Is The Game We Didn’t Know We Wanted

Apex Legends blindsided me in more ways than one. I had already been making a loose gaming schedule for the weeks ahead, and now this fantastic battle royale game is pretty much the only thing I want to play.

Apex Legends: All Loot and Supply Crate Locations, Best Landing Spots and Important Locations

Apex Legends’ King’s Canyon map is full of loot and supply chests, along with respawn beacons, hidden secrets and plenty of places to get caught in a firefight. Here’s your guide to every location, supply crate, Pathfinder beacon, even the best landing spots to be found around King’s Canyon.

Apex Legends Works Because Everyone Can Contribute

Apex Legends dropped into the battle royale genre with a strong first impression. There’s still an allure of newness, but as the initial dust settles and the game starts to take shape, it’s clear that Apex Legends has staying power. Much of that is owed to design decisions that streamline some of the clunkier aspects of battle royale and allow players of various skill levels to achieve victory.

Four Hundred Blizzard France Employees Still Don’t Know If They’re Laid Off

By now, many of the people caught up in this week’s massive Activision Blizzard layoff have been informed that they’ve lost their jobs. But at Blizzard’s office in Versailles, France, more than 400 people are still waiting for news. And, due to complex French labor laws, it might be months before they find out what happens to them.

These Ancient Warships Built For World War II Are Still in Service 74 Years Later

The Second World War ended in 1945, but you wouldn’t know it from the look of some navies. At least eight countries still operate warships built for service in World War II—and in at least one case much earlier than that. Ships that served in the D-Day invasion, or even the Russian Czar’s Imperial Navy…

Famed WW2 Aircraft Carrier Torpedoed in 1942 Found Miles Deep in Pacific Ocean

After 77 years, the wreck of the USS Hornet has finally been found, lying more than three miles deep in South Pacific waters. The storied aircraft carrier—sunk by Japanese torpedoes in 1942 with the loss of 140 men— played a critical role during the Second World War, most famously in the Doolittle Raid and the Battle of Midway.

Awesome. RIP dear heroes.

5 Hitler watercolors go unsold at German auction

My Favorite Childhood Gadget of the ’80s, the Speak & Spell, Is Back

My Favorite Childhood Gadget of the ’80s, the Speak & Spell, Is Back

Where the new Speak & Spell differs from the original—and this could be a deal-breaker for some nostalgia-seekers—is its voice. Instead of using a synthesizer that generates spoken words from a bunch of coded instructions, Basic Fun!’s Speak & Spell uses voice recordings that have been processed to sound like they’re being generated by a computer. The monotonous, stilted delivery sounds very close to the original version, but it’s definitely different.

It’s all about the voice and getting that right. That was the appeal

You have this many minutes to consume McDonald’s French fries before they’re inedible

You have this many minutes to consume McDonald’s French fries before they’re inedible

McDonald’s french fries become notably less appealing at around the 10-minute mark, and are a big old nope by minute 18.

Time of death: 17-18 minutes

Kate got out while the getting was good. Our final two participants bailed within a minute of each other, at 17 minutes (Allison) and 18 minutes (Kevin). At this point, the fries are lukewarm at best, no longer crisp, mealy bordering on gummy, and generally unpleasant to eat. They even seemed to lose some color.

‘Worst tax return in a decade! He’s lost my vote’: Taxpayers lash out at Trump for Tax Cuts and Job Act ‘scam’ as IRS data shows refunds are smaller than last year

‘Worst tax return in a decade! He’s lost my vote’: Taxpayers lash out at Trump for Tax Cuts and Job Act ‘scam’ as IRS data shows refunds are smaller than last year

Yeah no shit. Worst Tax refund ever. I don’t even have enough to make it through the year despite making less this year. I’m so fucked. From what I could determine less taxes got taken out so I ended up owing.

  • US taxpayers have lashed out on social media this past week after receiving lower refunds than last year
  • Some say they owe the IRS despite no apparent change in financial situation
  • Many said they voted for Trump but would not do so again because of taxes 
  • 2017 Tax Cuts and Job Act promised lower taxes for the working class in 2018
  • But employers may have decreased the withholdings amount in salaries
  • It could mean employees paid less during the year and had more in the bank
  • If so, refunds may not need to be as high as 2018 because less was contributed

What does Apex Legends’ success mean for Anthem?

What does Apex Legends’ success mean for Anthem?

Note: add me as a friend: Nebu7777

Electronic Arts is under enormous pressure. The company’s stock has tumbled in the wake of news of a troubled Star Wars game and a weak showing from Battlefield 5, and investors are growing restless. That’s likely why EA is taking the risk of cannibalizing its own success with the release of Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale shooter.

Raspberry Pi gets its own brick-and-mortar retail store

Raspberry Pi gets its own brick-and-mortar retail store

Located on the first floor of the Grand Arcade in Cambridge, U.K., the Raspberry Pi Store is open every day and sells everything from Raspberry Pi microcomputers and accessories to branded coffee mugs, soft toys, and more.

Despite Raspberry Pi’s popularity — more than 19 million units have been sold since 2012 — it still feels a little niche to merit its own dedicated retail store. Indeed, most people who would be interested in building their own electronic gadgets from scratch are likely well versed in the wonders of online retail. But that is likely the very reason the Raspberry Pi Foundation wants its own space in the physical retail realm: It needs a new audience.
