Nintendo Switch emulator Yuzu will shut down in lawsuit settlement with Nintendo
https://archive.md/NQlRq
>The new settlement (via court documents) of the lawsuit will see Tropic Haze, the company behind Yuzu, paying out $2.4 million to Nintendo and ceasing all distribution, promotion, and development of the emulator.
>What’s more, the company will hand over control of their website, yuzu-emu.org, to Nintendo. With the emulator effectively being shut down, the team’s $30,000/month Patreon will likely be shut down too.
>Previous arguments for the lawsuit noted that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was downloaded over 1 million times before its official launch, and that Yuzu’s Patreon (which they use for support to develop the emulator) doubled during that time.
>Nintendo has been known to aggressively protect their intellectual property and/or copyright. A notorious case with an alleged Switch hacker named Gary Bowser ended with the person imprisoned (though released now) and fined millions of dollars, which he’s still paying out.

The trannies in charge of yuzu explicitly monetized the emulator, shared console-specific keys in the developer discord, passed around prerelease leaks among themselves with no opsec and allegedly planned to make their own NSO clone for profit. They broke every rule of emudev in the name of greed and nutendo called them out for it. This settlement is arguably the lesser evil because at least it prevents a trial where the judge could be bribed to contradict Sony v. Connectix, this way it's only their LLC (which nobody else has ever felt the need to do for emudev, by the way) that gets fucked.
Dolphin devs haven't done anything nearly as stupid and so nintendo can safely be told to get fucked.

Gee it's almost as if they made that "company" so it can be held libel instead of them. It's almost as if they saw this all coming. Such a mystery as to why Yuzu settled wirh Jewtendo so quickly.
I found Yuzu to be, on average, a far more competent emulator than Ryujinx.
While Ryujinx prioritizes accuracy, it also has far higher requirements while having mostly negligible differences on average as far as accuracy goes on most titles, and it usually took about a week or two for yuzu to catch when it came down to running the latest releases. I don't give a shit about the developers being retarded discord niggers since I wasn't paying for it, I care about the more usable "better" product and this is why this sucks.
Besides, NIntendo surely has their eyes set on Ryujinx next so it will all boil down to a legal attrition war, playing whackamole with every single developer and fork until people get too tired to keep fighting them, that's essentially what Nintendo wants to do.
>>237731

I had audio issues with dolphin but it was due to some odd software glitch where the game was running at 1/10th of the speed but I fixed it by simply reopening the emulator and closing out any drivers

DraStic's devs are also taking down their DS emulator for android. Supposedly not strictly due to Nintendo going after Yuzu, but the timing is influenced by it. At least they're letting people know in advance and have made it free until it gets pulled.

Nintendo isn't so blind it only suddenly realized the Switch has emulators. It needed irrefutable evidence to take out Yuzu and hasn't gone after other emulators for the simple fact it isn't confident in winning.

This may show Nintendo's ability to attack and could scare some devs. But the facts remain that Nintendo filed the suit and a week later it was settled. At no time did a judge pass final judgement other then to accept the terms of the settlement. Taking a look at the actual suit filed, it appears that some of the ammunition Nintendo uses comes down to that Yuzu devs knowingly promoted piracy of Switch games NOT owned by the users. It further pushes that the Yuzu devs obtained copies of leaked Switch games, being games they also did not own, and promoted their use prior to the game even releasing. Granted Nintendo does push the general copyright and stealing claims that could also be applied to other emulators

Part of Nintendo's idea behind how weak the lawsuit is in many regards, may be hoping the actual issues you described get them a verdict and drag the weak arguments along with them.
Basically get a case they can point to and say "hey, this was part of the complaint, it got accepted, therefore all these points are valid"

Yuzu devs were pieces of thrash and deserved to get kneecapped, but at least they had the decency of not dragging the rest along with them.

>>237777
>and even then they were making online for only people who paid them
Worded kinda awkwardly, but yes. They were effectively selling the same thing as Nintendo's "Nintendo Switch Online" service, which can be considered selling a competing product using someone else's work.
There's legal precedent for winning cases like that, Blizzard v Wowscape. Court ruling involved a sum of $200 "per act of circumvention of a copyright security system" which ended up being over 85 million USD. Despite the server software being entirely made by people uninvolved with Blizzard, just reverse engineering snapshots from the server's responses.

I think that's Dolphin you're thinking of, some anon on here occasionally posted about reverting one single line that caused a dependency on newer Windows versions for zero benefit.
As for liking Yuzu, there's multiple forks already. Time will tell if any of them get updated, but it's not like you can actually remove open source software off the internet.

No, that was PCSX2. Dolphin actively supported win7 until they switched to Qt6, and even then you could just drop in patched Qt6 dlls. Ryujinx simply flipped a compiler switch that made the builds win10+ for no benefit to anyone.

Sweet Baby Inc. CEO Kim Belair Speech Urged Employees To “Terrify” Video Game Companies If They “Don’t Give You What They Want”
https://archive.md/g60ji
>Sweet Baby Inc. CEO Kim Belair makes it clear the purpose is to forget about gamers entirely and terrorize video game companies in a statement found on Twitter / X. It highlights their entire philosophy in a way which shows they shouldn’t be involved in any productions.
>Sweet Baby Inc. garnered attention due to its involvement with the latest Rocksteady game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Much of the game’s content was criticized for its lack of respect towards the source material. The company has been associated with several other controversial games, including Starfield, Forspoken, Gotham Knights, Spiderman 2, and the reboot of Saints Row, which led to the closure of its development studio, Volition. A Steam user, Kabrutus, created a Steam Curator list titled “Sweet Baby Inc detected” which list tracks the games that Sweet Baby Inc is involved in and does not recommend them to followers.
>Subsequently, an employee of Sweet Baby Inc, Chris Kindred, made attempts to have Kabrutus and his Steam Curator list, titled “Sweet Baby Inc detected,” removed. Kindred took to X to voice his concerns, stating, “The Steam curator harassment group, Sweet Baby Inc detected, is led by this person, kabrutusrambo. Here’s them trying to be slick so they don’t get reported. Even with the discriminatory language filed off, the group itself still fails the code of conduct.” Kindred then urged others to report the group, saying, “Anyway, report the group,” and concluded with, “And report the creator since he loves his account so much.”
>Now people have found video clips of the CEO of Sweet Baby Inc, Kim Belair showing that bullying and terrorising tactics is nothing new to Sweet Baby Inc.
Posting a clip from a game developers conference, X user GamesNosh exposed Kim Belair: “The Co-Founder of Sweet Baby Inc Kim Belair proudly explains the method she uses to force bosses at game studios to censor, alter, and “diversify” game projects she feels are problematic – “Terrify them” aka threaten them with the anger of the cancel culture mob.”
>In the full video clip, Kim Belair makes clear that the Sweet Baby Inc. game dev philosophy is to forget about the core audience, force diversity into games, sneak it in there if necessary, and use terror tactics and threats if you don’t get your way.
>Kim Belair said at the conference: “Create moments that are intentionally targeted and designed to create joy in the marginalized. They are going to appreciate this on a level that your core audience won’t, but it doesn’t mean you’re going to exclude your core audience.”
>Kim Belair continued: “Also, don’t fall into this trap that I think a lot of people fall into, which is they think, “Okay, don’t worry.” We can include everyone by making this like a single default universal experience that is universally representative. Because usually, like all that means, as it did in the dating example, is that you’re aiming at your core demographic and you’re probably invisibly leaning towards the dominant societal voice, even if you don’t realize it. Um, and if you’re in development and you are part of that dominant voice, you’re like a cis-hetero white dude or just adjacent to that, do not wait until the end to call your consultants. Bring them in at the beginning.”
>She added: “And instead of asking them, “Hey, is this very racist thing we did very racist or is this deeply offensive thing we did deeply offensive? Are you hurt by it?” Ask them what they want to see. Like, ask them what would thrill them, what would bring them joy. And if you have a team lead, put that request to them very, very early. If you’re a creative working in AAA, which I did for many, many years, put this stuff up to your higher-ups. And if they don’t see the value in what you’re asking for when you ask for consultants, when you ask for research, go have a coffee with your marketing team and just terrify them with the possibility of what’s going to happen if they don’t give you what you want.”
>The statements by Sweet Baby Inc.’s CEO only make matters worse for the company which is already embattled in so many problems from the core audience who don’t want this nonsense in their entertainment.

When i started playing it, i thought it was a mixture of the Arkham games, Onimusha, the good parts of Days Gone, and yes, the Assassin's Creed parkour as well.
But it only took the good parts of those games.
>>237864
>I had fun with it, it's no masterpiece but you can tell that devs cared about what they were doing, which is rare.
I agree, it was one rare instance of devs wanting to make a good game and not interactive propaganda.
Quite surprising, coming from a Soyny owned studio. (Sucker Punch, devs of Sly Cooper and inFamous)
The only minor complaints i have it that the main character is quite uncharismatic and average looking, (I don't know what it is, maybe it's the weak jaw line, but something makes him look a bit like a dork instead of the tough samurai he's supposed to be) and that while the game generally looks great, i hate how the water looks, especially when you swim in it, as it doesn't react like it should.
You see a few barely noticeable circles forming behind you, but for the most part it doesn't react to walking in it or swimming in it.
for some reason, static water in vidya always bothered me, except for old low poly vidya like Tomb Raider of course.
To me it feels like those games where you shoot the walls or the groung and nothing happens, no bullet holes nor dust coming up, and that may really kill immersion.
If you put water in vidya and the MC has to interact with it, either by swimming, walking on puddles or throwing shit in it, then make it react to it accordingly.
But yeah, apart from that, very good game, and pretty fun too.

China breakthrough promises optical discs that store hundreds of terabytes
>Optical discs that can store up to 200 TB of data could be possible with a new technology developed in China. If commercialized, it could revive optical media as an alternative to hard disk or tape for cost-effective long-term storage.
I want to buy 1TB compact disks.
>In an article published in Nature titled "A 3D nanoscale optical disk memory with petabit capacity," the researchers detail how they developed a novel optical storage medium they call dye-doped photoresist (DDPR) with aggregation-induced emission luminogens (AIE-DDPR).
>In tests, the researchers claim the AIE-DDPR film is so transparent that they were able to write and read up to 100 layers on such disks, with a distance between neighboring layers of just 1 micrometer (1 μm).
>With 100 layers to a disc plus a minimum spot size of 54 nm and a lateral track pitch of 70 nm, the researchers estimate this should make possible a capacity of 1.6 petabits (200 TB) within the area of a DVD-sized disc.

Did the writer of that Kotaku article think anybody would fall for that total horseshit?
>Sweet Baby Inc. is a narrative design company, meaning most of its work is focused on writing stories and dialogue—they are not a DEI consultancy firm. That means they ensure a game’s plot points make logical sense and are satisfying to players, and that characters speak and behave in consistent ways. Narrative designers may also provide a final round of polish, like a Hollywood “script doctor.” For example, the team worked on Suicide Squad long after the story was written—and even then they joined just to write in-game ads, audio logs, and NPC “barks,”
IMMEDIATELY after an actual quote from the CEO is given

I lived in one of those places it wasn't, but then again we had to read some book about poor spics migrating up to the southwest from Mexico, or something like that. I couldn't be bothered to remember the details or what it's called at this point, but I feel like forced boring/politically inclined literature in schools is a big part of why most people in my classes, even up through community college, could barely read. At least violent stories of heroes, like Beowulf, actually caught students' attention (probably helped by culminating in two class days of movie watching), but I figure we wouldn't have read it as part of the curriculum to begin with if it didn't have "cultural significance" as one of the oldest surviving pieces of English literature.

>Ghost of Tsushima
It is a 5.5/10 game at best. It mostly relies on looking "pretty" but it has a lot of issues. The biggest is that it follows the typical Sony format of story over gameplay. The entirety of the main story and even the majority of the side quests forces you the player to do TLOU-tier walking to hear exposition, almost as if it is a loading screen, before you can get to the area of the quest. Endlessly running to and from areas just so characters can talk to you gets boring quickly. The story also doesn't matter since it boils down to choosing A or B at the very end.
The whole game is about being a Samurai or Ninja to fight the Mongols. The game is better when playing as a Samurai since it means fighting enemies head on. Being a Ninja is for faggots as it entails playing a modern-era stealth game where you instant kill brain dead enemies who cannot react to you until their "notice" bar fills up.
But just in case you thought you could enjoy being a Samurai, the fucking devs hate you for not playing their way. The game has you choose from three fighting stances: Light for light enemies, medium for medium enemies, and heavy for heavy enemies. Now the game also loves to throw a mix of these types in groups that you fight all at once. But if for whatever reason you want to fight the group with a medium stance so you aren't too slow or do too little damage, and you face off against anything other then the medium enemy, the game will fucking pause itself and give you a tutorial about stances. This happened a handful of times before it mercifully stopped, and the game is easy enough that it doesn't require changing stances every 5 seconds like the devs envisioned.

I didn't know about it until "someone" (jew) called it out after Suicide Squad bombed. Before that I simply assumed all the major publishers had their own ESG commissariat.
Given how hard this is blowing up, I suspect there's a plan to hijack and weaponize it as part of the dup btfo circus this year, in the same way niggergate was weaponized almost immediately and turned into the "The Right Side Of History vs evil dissenters" dialectic the jews have been riding since 2015.

He's right that the maintained progressive literary standard which has existed since the 60s has created a crushing phenomena on literacy, but he cries about how he gets no recognition and definitely isn't bitter about it while also admitting to being lowbrow. If he's so literate and has been since his schooldays, why did he fail his English courses? Is it really because he was so engrossed in other pieces that he just didn't care?

Did you actually read it? The entire point is that English class isn't about reading comprehension, it's about making up Freudian nonsense. The mention of  the "awards" is that they're rigged and thus meaningless. The entire point of Sad Puppies was to show World Con/the Hugos weren't actually a "for fans by fans" thing and if faced with the prospect of not being able to pick their pet diversity hire nobody reads the "judges" would burn the entire thing to the ground instead (which they did). It's really, really hard to be about him wanting on of the awards when he refused the nomination.

>thinks Star Wars and Twilight are more influential than the literature that came before them

Yes. Gatsby was a major failure that literally had to be given out for free to very, very bored people to get a following and that one is actually more influential than most of the stuff in it. Compared to Star Wars influence on sci-fi as a genre and filmmaking as a whole, or the sheer depths of shitty romance spawned from Twilight (remember: 50 Shades of Grey was a Twilight fanfic) that's nothing.

>The entire point is that English class isn't about reading comprehension, it's about making up Freudian nonsense
I did read it, and I understand and agree with his basic point, that English courses in America are about prescribing meaning rather than encouraging literacy and instilling progressive social values based on book lists written decades prior, but I dislike his character and how he expanded on his point. Regarding Sad Puppies, the campaign began with an attempt to force a Best Novel nomination for Correia, which he couldn't achieve. He only reached a nomination in the next year, in which he finished last. Voting for the Hugos was always exclusive and intended to be a representation of what members of the WSFS, themselves meant to be both the standards of quality and fellows, deemed to be the best works of the year. Leaving nominations to what may as well be the popular vote is a betrayal of the existence of the Hugos. Star Wars is a classic and was very influential by bringing space opera to film. However, its influence is inflated due to Lucas's extremely good business sense. The initial trilogy is and was fodder for people who lacked a background in science fiction, regardless of how autistic Lucas was and wanted to be with his lore. I know it won Hugos. Twilight isn't a classic. It had a large influence, but it lacks literary merit.

http://web.archive.org/web/20240306125500/https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/helldivers-2-studio-ceo-says-its-not-being-acquired-by-playstation/
>After X user @NextGenPlayer posted a mocked up image of the PlayStation Studios logo and the Arrowhead logo with the message “welcome to the family”, Arrowhead CEO Johan Pilestedt replied saying the image, and the news, were untrue.
>“This is fake, unless I’ve missed something,” he replied. “Also, a really shitty old logo from 2008 or so when we just started the studio.”
>In a similar discussion, one user told Pilestedt: “They say you sold out to Sony.”
>“In that case, this would be the first I hear about it,” he replied.

He died of subdural hematoma, which is mostly caused by getting a head injury and not going to a fucking doctor to get it checked. Not exactly a health issue, more of a (rather common) fuckup by underestimating a "seemingly minor" injury.
Alcohol abuse and being on anticoagulants can make it more likely to happen, so it's not like health is necessarily entirely unrelated, but as far as I know from old interviews he rarely if ever drank.

Marle is the only party member that doesn't have an obvious Dragon Ball counterpart. I think she's closer to Bianca from DQ more than anything but I haven't played the game she's from to say for sure. I briefly considered naming her Lunch before settling on Chi-chi. Also the retranslation patch I'm using calls her "Chicidia" which demonstrates why Square USA threw that particular naming quirk in the garbage.

Because they are retarded? The point is that Marle is dumb and uses a nickname that she came up with on the spot that is just a shortening of her real name, so no matter what you name her it will reflect on her real name too. "Nadia" is just localizer bullshit.

The point is it's a piece of wordplay that doesn't work in English at all when that character's name could be "DICKS" or "Carl" or "Vgeta" for all you know. It barely works in Japanese with the one-phoneme-per-kana rule. You can't be EOP and then complain when the translators try to make the script sound like English while at least trying to avoid shredding authorial intent. inb4 "you're defending da joooooooos"

Ghost Of Tsushima's Lead Devs To Become the Real Island's Ambassadors
https://archive.md/gnXli
>Two senior members of the Ghost of Tsushima development team are to become ambassadors of the real island of Tsushima. PlayStation exclusive Ghost of Tsushima has been widely praised for its beautiful open-world setting and compelling storyline, and Japan is one of the game's biggest fanbases.
>Ghost of Tsushima has raised the global profile of the real-world island of Japan's Tsushima Island since the game's initial release in July 2020. The result of this newfound fame saw members of the Ghost of Tsushima fan community band together to raise funds for the island after a typhoon destroyed one of its historic Torii shrine gates. The local shrine priest, Yuichi Hirayama, publicly acknowledged that it was the Ghost of Tsushima community that donated a vast sum of the final money raised through the Campfire campaign (Japan’s counterpart of Kickstarter) that he started to fund the repairs.
>Now the island is honoring two of Ghost of Tsushuima’s lead developers. Sucker Punch Production's Game Director Nate Fox and Creative Director Jason Connell will receive the distinctions of becoming permanent tourism ambassadors of the city of Tsushima in Nagasaki. In a statement translated by VGC, Tsushima mayor Hiroki Hitakatsu said:
>“ [Fox and Connell] spread the name and history of Tsushima to the whole world in such a wonderful way. Even a lot of Japanese people do not know the history of the Gen-ko period. When it comes to the world, the name and location of Tsushima is literally unknown, so I cannot thank them enough for telling our story with such phenomenal graphics and profound stories.”

No, there will be a second season. That's the new tactic these companies pull. They green light a show for two seasons, at least, as a gimmick to convince people that the show was "popular" in the first place, however it's all just a marketing tactic to get people to watch the show.

LGBTQ+ Activists Accuse ‘Helldivers 2’ Developers Of Silencing Them After They Attempted To Push Propaganda Into Game
https://archive.md/caN1M
>Numerous LGBTQ+ activists are accusing Helldivers II developers of attempting to silence them after they attempted to push LGBTQ+ propaganda into the game.
>As reported by Endymion, numerous LGBTQ+ activists spoke with Polygon and accused developers Arrowhead Game Studios of silencing them.
>One activist, going by the name of Bapanada, told the outlet, “The problem here isn’t actually the bigots, those are an unfortunate fact of life that can never be fully eradicated. >The problem is that Arrowhead’s official spaces […] have made the deliberate decision to silence LGBTQ+ voices under the guise of banning any ‘political’ discussion, as if people’s identities are political, and as if this game was not created and marketed as a heavy-handed piece of political satire.”
>Polygon’s Diego Nicolás Argüello also claimed that an individual named Wendy Wilson demanded pride flag capes be added to the game in the official Discord server. After numerous gamers told her to keep the propaganda away, she changed her profile to a transgender flag.
>Argüello then detailed, “After posting a long message in the official Helldivers 2 Discord detailing the events and asking for proper moderation, she was timed out for 24 hours, her message was deleted, and another swarm of people DMed her.”
>Wilson informed Polygon, “Disallowing discussion only causes lgbt members of the community to hide, while the bigots get to remain.”
>Interestingly, a number of players on the game’s Steam forums have indicated they were kicked from the game’s discord for opposing LGBTQ+ propaganda in the game.
>User CaliburxZero posted, “So someone started posting all the “dirt” on the LGBT stance of the devs, and I got kicked out because I questioned why this group of people need their flag everywhere and why should they get a flag put on as capes where nobody else will? The moment I posted that shortly after I was kicked out of the discord.”
>He added, “Not gonna lie, this censorship and LACK of democracy is getting old.”
>In an edit, he also posted, “The point I had tried to make as I have on reddit, is that if you give the cape to them you MUST give it to EVERYONE or NOBODY at ALL. Fair is fair. If I’m made to put up with seeing it, at least be FAIR to the other groups of people that are “underrepresented”. Either way, I’m sick of Politics of the left in everything. Just leave me alone and let me play my game and tune out from world crap.”
>“Oh and as a final message to those who support this censorship to protect your fragile ideology to this I say one simple thing: Seethe more, and your hatred of DIVERSITY of THOUGHT only brings more awareness to the way you people think and act,” he concluded.

‘Stellar Blade’s Design Isn’t the Problem—It’s How Creepy Men Are Being About It
https://archive.md/NLTIx
>A new action-adventure game, Stellar Blade, is on its way to releasing for PlayStation 5. However, controversy over the game has arisen due to men being creepy about the lead character, Eve.
>Of course, men being creepy about female characters is nothing new. The hypersexualization of women in media, from TV to movies to video games, is a decades-old ongoing issue. However, it is especially a problem in video games, as it’s estimated about 61% of those working in the gaming industry are male. Additionally, although it has been found that women now make up about half of the gaming community, there are misconceptions that gamers are still predominantly male. Hence, from Lara Croft to Bayonetta, women in video games have consistently been heavily sexualized to appeal to men.
>Fortunately, in recent years, video games have done better at portraying women in a more balanced way. Unfortunately, the presence of a few women in video games who aren’t exactly what these men want to see has only resulted in escalating their creepiness. According to conservative men, not approaching the creation of every female character in video games in a way that appeals directly to them is “woke,” and some deeply disturbed men have taken to going on public rants about it. Recently, conservatives formulated a conspiracy theory that Sweet Baby Inc. was behind improving the treatment of women in video games and the inclusion of diverse characters, resulting in them boycotting the company.
>Additionally, in their Sweet Baby Inc. Detection Discord, men were praising Stellar Blade for being “traditional” instead of “woke” with its female lead protagonist. Anything that gets the approval of male conservative extremists is bound to give anyone pause, and the creators soon confirmed that one is right to be hesitant about Stellar Blade.
>Ever since the marketing for Stellar Blade began, it has been abundantly clear that men are going to be gross about it. When the gameplay overview was released, the comments were overtaken with commenters fawning over the lead character and declaring it the best game ever solely for the protagonist’s design. Meanwhile, Eve has become an “anti-woke” symbol for conservatives. Of course, one could argue that the game’s developer, Shift Up, can’t control men being gross online, and one can’t really call them out for hypersexualizing women without calling out the entire industry.
>However, game director Hyung-Tae Kim raised eyebrows when he said of Eve’s design, “When it comes to the design, we put special attention on the back of the character because the player is always facing the back of the character when they’re playing. That’s what they see the most of, so we thought this was pretty important.” It’s already quite strange to hear a director highlighting the extra emphasis that went into a female character’s rear. He also doubled down on the sexualization of women in video games, stating,
>It’s important to note that the problem with this whole debacle is not about Eve’s design. Some have claimed that those concerned about this situation are shaming the model that Eve was based on or suggesting that women shouldn’t embrace their sexuality, but that’s not what we’re saying. The problem is quite simple: A game developer and thousands of internet users are bluntly describing Eve as an “ideal” woman—the only woman that men want to see. Hypersexualization in video games is a problem because it pushes the idea that there is only one “ideal” body type and that women should be judged on how well they adhere to it.
>Some have also pointed out that Stellar Blade’s design is actually tame in comparison to the company’s other games. It has stirred controversy in the past with its highly sexualized female characters, particularly in games like Goddess of Victory: Nikke. Still, the fact that Stellar Blade isn’t as bad as it could be doesn’t make up for the increasingly creepy comments and behavior arising around this game. Perhaps if all body types and women were represented in video games, it wouldn’t be such an issue. However, Stellar Blade is an example of how male developers continually push only their narrow views of what women should look like into games.
>Additionally, it’s just very strange how video games supposedly have to have these “ideal” characters because they’re “adult entertainment.” There are plenty of other outlets where men can access adult content. However, this push to turn video games solely into adult content for men while ignoring all other audiences is outright bizarre. Its suggesting that, despite men having specific outlets for this content, it now needs to be injected into all media to cater solely to them.
>While some amount of fan service is understandable for success, it feels very weird to specifically be catering to misogynist men who get triggered if they see a woman in a video game who doesn’t look exactly how they want. It’s hard to see how people don’t find it creepy that men seemingly can’t enjoy video games or won’t be entertained if they can’t see their version of an ideal woman. I certainly have never heard a woman going on an unhinged rant because she feels personally attacked by what men look like in a video game. It also feels very dangerous to be a woman and have men increasingly pushing this idea that any woman who doesn’t look like a hypersexualized video game character is “woke,” triggering, and deserving of their hatred.

Chris Roberts says Star Citizen is finally pushing for the 1.0 'finish line'
https://web.archive.org/web/20240316012208/https://www.pcgamer.com/games/mmo/chris-roberts-says-star-citizen-is-finally-pushing-for-the-10-finish-line/
>Crowdfunded space sim Star Citizen achieved a new milestone recently—the first player to seamlessly jump between two star systems on different servers—and now the guy in charge, Cloud Imperium Games CEO Chris Roberts, is indicating that the 1.0 release might finally be in sight.
>It's been over a decade since Roberts first showed me a prototype for Star Citizen. The space game has now raised over $670 million and become two distinct projects: A singleplayer Wing Commander successor called Squadron 42, and the Star Citizen persistent universe MMO. 
>Squadron 42, which stars famous actors including Gillian Anderson, Mark Hamill, and Gary Oldman, was declared "feature complete" late last year, and now Roberts says those features are making their way into the persistent universe "at an accelerated rate." Meanwhile, the recent tech milestone, which saw a player named "MrTrash" (of course that's their name) become the first to travel between star systems by wormhole, represents a vital step toward the MMO's 1.0 release, according to the CEO.
>"After many hard years of work towards a goal many thought was impossible, we are on the cusp of delivering one of the final pieces of technology that will enable a connected, shared universe that thousands of people can experience together at the same time," wrote Roberts in his latest dispatch to backers.
>The technology, which they call "server meshing," allows players to seamlessly travel between locations that are hosted on different servers (it's more complicated than that, but that's the gist). The recent test also set a new record for concurrent players on a Star Citizen server shard—350—according to Roberts. 
>There's more detail on server meshing in a Q&A, but the big takeaway here is that Roberts believes Star Citizen's 1.0 release is close enough to start seriously talking about again. Now that Squadron 42 is feature complete, the dev team has been reorganized and is setting sail "for Star Citizen's own finish line," he said—though crossing that line of course won't mean the end of development.
>"Star Citizen 1.0 is what we consider the features and content set to represent 'commercial' release," Roberts wrote. "This means that the game is welcoming to new players, stable, and polished with enough gameplay and content to engage players continuously. In other words, it is no longer Alpha or Early Access."
>Cloud Imperium technology chief Benoit Beausejour says the company is now "charging full steam ahead" toward launching server meshing in Star Citizen Alpha 4.0, which will "mark a new beginning" for the game architecture. Senior game director Rich Tyrer added that, as they pursue the 1.0 goal, players should expect "large updates each quarter with many changes to systems that have not been touched in a long time like Economy, Insurance, etc," as well as "a whole suite of quality-of-life improvements" and "brand-new features and content."
>As part of this 1.0 push, Roberts says he's moved from Los Angeles to Austin to put himself closer to the time zones of Manchester, Frankfurt, and Montreal, where Star Citizen development is focused. Cloud Imperium's LA office has shrunk as a result, with developers based there asked to relocate to other offices, primarily Manchester. Roberts notes one departure from the company. Persistent universe live director Todd Papy, who had lived in the UK but moved back to the US, was let go: "...after much soul searching, I determined that we cannot afford to have this role remote from the main team in Manchester for a good portion of the year," Roberts wrote.
>"I will miss the sunny skies and beaches of Los Angeles, but Star Citizen and Squadron 42 take precedence," concluded the CEO. "The journey is longer and more difficult than I anticipated 11 ½ years ago, but the final destination is so much more exciting and fulfilling. I would have never in my dreams expected to have the opportunity to build something on the scale and ambition of Star Citizen, and because of this feel incredibly blessed by all of your support, and I am determined to finish strong."
>Squadron 42, which was at one point meant to release in 2014, and then in 2016, does not have a release date, and neither does Star Citizen 1.0, although you can play the current alpha version by purchasing a starter pack. According to Roberts, more than 1.1 million players logged in last year. You can read his full post about the state and future of Star Citizen here.

Baldur's Gate 3 Mods That 'Glow Up' Faces Are My Pet Peeve
https://archive.md/9IIjb
>The forcing of conventional beauty standards on everything is tiring.
>Baldur’s Gate 3, being a game with such detailed high-quality character models, has a LOT of cosmetic mods. On Nexus Mods, a mod entitled “Enhanced Nude Bodies” has almost 1 million downloads, nothing too surprising about that. There’s also the possibly AI-titled “Beautiful Curvy Body and Sexy Outfits”, which clocks in at over 300k downloads.
>It’s not the sexual mods I take issue with, though. After all, Baldur’s Gate 3 is a horny game, you can’t settle down for a nice cup of tea in camp without Halsin trying to jump your bones. Some cosmetic mods do irk me though; facial mods that aren’t created in the spirit of the character they’re modifying.
>For example, “Another Face for Lae’zel” is the most downloaded cosmetic mod for the Githyanki. Predictably, they enlarged her eyes, flattened her nose to make it less reptilian and made her lips plumper. It has over 70,000 downloads. It’s a reinforcement of conventional beauty standards on a character who is wholly unconcerned with beauty.
>There has been a lot of, often toxic, discourse in gaming over the last couple of years regarding the appearance of women in video games. A lot of this irrational ire has been directed towards Guerilla Games for their design of Aloy, the protagonist of the Horizon series. According to the terminally online, Aloy is an example of how media is de-femming women, making them intentionally unattractive to push some kind of nebulous agenda.
>Karlach isn’t an unblemished Barbie doll, she’s a foul-mouthed, battle-hardened warrior. It’s crass to mould her into something that satisfies a misguided need for visual purity. Not all mods have to be true to a character, but these mods add nothing positive to the playing or narrative experience.
>Face packs that change the faces of player characters are less frustrating, though I still don’t like the aesthetic of a lot of these mods. That really is just a peeve, though. If you want your Tav / Durge to look like a buxom anime character then that’s your prerogative, even if it looks completely out of place with the rest of the game.
>It’s strange to me just how prevalent these mods are currently. This can be partially explained by the lack of modding support for Baldur’s Gate 3, something Larian is currently working on. Without an easier process for developing more complex mods, we see a lot of ‘easier’ mods, like ones that replace textures.
>We can take solace in the fact that Larian Studios are the ones creating these complex characters, rather than concupiscent modders in Blender, I shudder to think what my beloved party would look like if they had their way.

For some Helldivers 2 players, the fascist role-play has gone too far
https://archive.md/9VqOH
>‘They talk like we’re actually soldiers’
>tIt took GantztheDemon 10 days to be able to play Helldivers 2 again. On Feb. 21, TikTok user AJGaming shared a video featuring Gantz killing them. The sequence went viral overnight, garnering 4.8 million views as of this writing. A subsection of the Helldivers 2 community, hung up on the politically charged satire theme of the online shooter, labeled the player as a “traitor” and began inciting others to shoot on sight. Alongside dozens of TikToks campaigning for a witch hunt, Gantz’s PlayStation account was temporarily banned after receiving hundreds of reports.
>“The last two weeks have been surreal, I never thought I would be getting this attention over a team kill inside of a video game,” GantztheDemon told Polygon over Discord. “It was pretty cool, but at the same time, reading comments of people saying they were going to find out who I was and release my personal information, I thought about just deleting it all.”
>Just a mere few weeks after the launch of Helldivers 2, in which thousands of players were forced to wait in a queue due to the servers being at max capacity almost every day, GantztheDemon was immortalized in the fan lore. According to Gantz, however, it was all a misunderstanding. The team kill, or TK for short, was payback for a friend being attacked by two random players in a team of four. Gantz then avenged them, which is the clip we’ve all seen.
>The Gantz situation has since cemented itself as an example of how the in-game theme of fighting a war together is, for better or worse, resounding in the community beyond the game itself. After conducting interviews with over 60 players for this article, it’s clear that the propaganda of Helldivers 2 inherently encourages people to band together. But some are acting in bad faith, spinning the clear satire into an overly serious military role-play — one that extends beyond acts like consecrating someone as public enemy number one.
>Toxicity has become a popular topic around the Helldivers 2 community as of late. Over at the game’s subreddit, there have been discussions around pursuing or rejecting a certain meta or play style. Players told me that these conversations have allegedly led to some players kicking or TKing people who didn’t abide by the consensus. The uptick in TKs has also been attributed to Gantz — as the user told Polygon, he’s seen several copycat accounts on Discord and TikTok.
>This was supported by Cadrian96, who pointed out the novelty of the narrative around Helldivers 2 being purely player-driven, as opposed to other live service game events where players’ mission results don’t impact the story. “This makes it feel like if we lose, we are all going to see the consequences in a higher enemy count, Stratagem bonus, or different climate conditions on the planets,” he said. This echoes the events of Malevelon Creek and the first unsuccessful mission last week.
>Most interviewees pointed at the sense of camaraderie as a big uniting force. Eleven of them replied to the questions in character, talking about “doing their part” for the sake of democracy alongside their “fellow divers.” A couple of Discord profiles were entirely committed to the bit, from display names detailing in-game ranks to profile pictures that say “Malevelon Creek Veteran.”
>“SOMETHING ABOUT HELLDIVERS 2 MAKES THE PEOPLE TAKING IT TOO SERIOUSLY A VERY BIG PROBLEM”
>The community has been expanding on the game’s thematic propaganda since its launch, including anything from fan-made posters that gave birth to slogans like “Spill Oil” to the Super Earth Broadcast, a fan-run TikTok account that shares daily updates about the galactic war. Several interviewees said that these community creations convinced them to purchase the game. Most found its satirical perspective was easy to role-play around or create fan-made content that adds to the world-building. Others expressed concerns for those players who are taking it to an extreme.
>“Something about Helldivers 2 makes the people taking it too seriously a very big problem,” user ViviGayming said over Discord. “They talk like we’re actually soldiers. I get role-playing — hell, I love the role-playing. But so many people get so into the war aspect that they fail to realize that not everyone cares as much as them.”
She added that there’s been an increase in people who are only interested in watching the numbers go up. Baptized as “Creekers” by the community, they tend to spew toxicity against anyone whom they consider to be “hurting the war effort” by not taking part in Major Orders. Part of this hate has recently been redirected toward developer Joel, who was described as Helldivers 2’s “dungeon master” in an interview with PC Gamer. “The community seems to have latched onto a name and now he’s the face of the galactic war as a whole, which I cannot imagine is good for his mental health,” ViviGayming said.
>Players have found other ways to combat the hate. The “Super Earth says Trans Rights” Discord server, a queer-led group with 70 current members, is one of several subcommunities that sprawled outward from the official Helldivers 2 server. The channel #bigot-watching collects hundreds of messages and interactions where users in official Helldivers 2 channels (such as the Helldivers official Discord) had insulted members of the Discord using slurs and threatened them via DMs. In screenshots shared with Polygon, these users had explicitly used Nazi speech to primarily target trans and furry folks, as well as using images of related paraphernalia (such as SS uniforms) in their profile pictures. (Developer Arrowhead did not respond to Polygon’s request for comment about any of these issues in time for publication.)
>“The problem here isn’t actually the bigots, those are an unfortunate fact of life that can never be fully eradicated,” user Bapanada said over Discord. “The problem is that Arrowhead’s official spaces [...] have made the deliberate decision to silence LGBTQ+ voices under the guise of banning any ‘political’ discussion, as if people’s identities are political, and as if this game was not created and marketed as a heavy-handed piece of political satire.”
>When Wendy Wilson joined the official Discord, she asked if it’d be possible to have pride flag capes added to Helldivers 2. She told Polygon she’s since been receiving messages telling her to “keep your shit out of our game,” followed by slurs and harassment after she changed her profile picture to the trans flag in protest. After posting a long message in the official Helldivers 2 Discord detailing the events and asking for proper moderation, she was timed out for 24 hours, her message was deleted, and another swarm of people DMed her. “Disallowing discussion only causes lgbt members of the community to hide, while the bigots get to remain,” read an excerpt from the deleted message.
>Encounters like this have extended to the game itself. This past weekend, user mechanizedContortion was team killed and kicked from a public lobby after somebody in the squad saw the trans flag in her Steam profile picture. “When I joined I saw him go AFK for a bit, and when he came back he had typed in the chat along the lines of ‘get out of my game freak’ and then killed me,” she said. “He told me after I asked [why he said that] and he said he looked at my Steam profile and that he doesn’t like ‘your kind of people’. He kicked me after that. It was fucking surreal.”
>As it stands, interviewees echoed that the opportunity for players to grief one another is “incredibly high” with the way friendly fire works. Some argued that the mechanic adds realism, and clips of accidental kills received with jest contributed to the virality around the game. Others are aware of how kicking and killing teammates is being used in bad faith.
>“THE THING ABOUT THIS GAME IS THAT ON THE SURFACE, IT LOOKS LIKE A GAME FOR CHUDS”
>When asked for features they’d like to see to mitigate these issues, users mentioned that being able to report players for griefing or team killing, adding a friendly fire warning similar to that in Rainbow Six Siege, and penalties for going against teamwork could make a difference, among other similar suggestions.
>Issues that extend to the community as a whole, however, seem to grow more unwieldy by the day. “The thing about this game is that on the surface, it looks like a game for chuds,” user Rayni said over Discord. “Media illiterate boogaloo boys will take the advertising at face value not realizing they’re the ones being parodied, like people who unironically think Homelander is the hero of The Boys.”
>A 21-year-old user, who asked for anonymity, said over email that because tools like the website and API Helldivers.io are exposing the raw data behind the curtain, it’s led to a more meta take on the war. According to this player, details such as liberation rates for each planet have been used to spread hate at others for “not playing the game right,” which has included death threats. The user has since created a separate “brigade,” acting as one of the several subcommunities meant to be a safe and open space for queer folks.
>“I care so much for Helldivers 2, and the community I’ve found,” they said, “and I’d hate to see this game become known for its toxicity not being addressed.”

Former Pokémon legal head Don McGowan thanks media for highlighting projects for the company to take down

>"Short answer: thanks to you folks," McGowan said. "I would be sitting in my office minding my own business when someone from the company would send me a link to a news article, or I would stumble across it myself. I teach Entertainment Law at the University of Washington and say this to my students: the worst thing on earth is when your 'fan' project gets press, because now I know about you."

Atari Partners with ALAN-1 to bring Atari Recharged games to arcades
https://www.gamespress.com/en-US/ATARI-PARTNERS-WITH-ALAN-1-TO-BRING-NEW-ATARI-RECHARGED-GAMES-TO-ARCAD
In case you're wondering what Atari Recharged is, it's all generic remakes that look like they should be decorating the "didn't beat the average" tier of a Humble Bundle. Vid related is the trailer for Berserk for example. ALAN-1 is one of those tiny retro shops that makes parts to keep old vector games alive so I have no idea why they're making cabinets all of a sudden.

Oh wait, they have one arcade cab to their name and it plays a Joust clone that's currently in steam early access.

Playing computer games can increase risk of erectile dysfunction, study finds
https://archive.md/v4fED
>Too much screen time is literally making men soft: Chinese scientists found that playing computer games for a prolonged period can drastically increase someone’s likelihood of experiencing erectile dysfunction, per a study published in the journal “Andrology.”
>“The present study offered substantial evidence for a positive causal association between computer use and the risk of erectile dysfunction,” wrote the study authors.
>Chinese scientists found that playing computer games for a prolonged period can drastically increase someone’s likelihood of experiencing erectile dysfunction, per a study published in the journal “Andrology.”
>Scientists arrived at this hard truth by exploring “the causal association between leisure sedentary behavior and erectile dysfunction,” per the study.
>To gauge if there was a link, researchers observed 223,805 men aged 40 to 69 as they engaged in various leisure activities, including watching TV, computer use and even driving for pleasure.
>They then measured participants’ levels of testosterone and other sex hormones as well as feelings of depression and anxiety.
>How do these pixelated pursuits torpedo one’s “hard” drive?
>Prolonged computer use is associated with lower levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which is manufactured by the brain’s pituitary gland. Along with testosterone, FSH is responsible for stimulating sperm production in men, which, when impinged, can result in ED.
>By a similar token, low levels of FSH have also been found to cause decreased libido, infertility and low energy. Fortunately, this digitally-induced impotence can be counteracted by “moderate physical activity,” per the study.
>No need to exchange your laptop for an elliptical just yet, however: The study had several caveats, most notably the fact that they only evaluated men under 70, the age at which ED is most prevalent.
>The intensity of the symptoms was also unclear.
>“Therefore, it could only be concluded that the longer the time spent using a computer, the more likely ED was to occur, but the risk of developing a specific type of ED or how severe ED would be could not be determined,” the authors wrote.
>Researchers determined that more research is needed before they can establish a “definitive causal association” between computer use and impotence.
>The study also neglected to specify what type of leisurely computer use upped the chances of ED, which currently affects around 30 million men in the US.
>However, previous studies have found that online porn can paradoxically ruin young men’s love lives by giving them unrealistic sex-pectations.
>“Porn addiction can lead to desensitization to sexual stimuli, which can decrease arousal and lead to difficulties achieving and maintaining an erection,” explained clinical sexologist and psychotherapist Dr. Rob Weiss. “If my primary source of arousal is constantly looking at 50 images a day or 1,000 images a day, I no longer become that interested on an individual basis.”-

Will Smith’s Zombie Game Has Been Hit Harder Than Chris Rock at the Oscars – Its Astronomical Budget Was Reportedly More Than Oppenheimer
https://web.archive.org/web/20240322204017/https://fandomwire.com/will-smiths-zombie-game-has-been-hit-harder-than-chris-rock-at-the-oscars-its-astronomical-budget-was-reportedly-more-than-oppenheimer/
>Tencent Games has created many popular video games but their fans will always remember Undawn for being a complete disaster. The game was endorsed by actor Will Smith, who also appears in the game, and had a gigantic budget. All this came crashing down as the game failed to attract the audience, making it one of the biggest financial failures for the company.
>Undawn was the first game to fail under Tencent Games’ “in-house” production plan, which was going to help the studios make profits of their own. The development and marketing of the game cost the studios around 1 billion yuan (roughly $140 million), which is $40 million more than Christopher Nolan’s 2023 blockbuster hit, Oppenheimer.
>If you have not heard about Tencent Games’ Undawn, we don’t blame you. The zombie apocalypse shooting game was an unoriginal idea that failed to please the audience, making it one of the biggest financial mistakes in Tencent Games’ history. Even actor Will Smith couldn’t save the game from being a major flop as the actor was hired to endorse the game.
>As per Reuters, the game’s budget, which included development and marketing cost, was roughly 1 billion yuan, which is around $140 million. To put things into perspective, Collider stated that Christopher Nolan’s 2023 movie Oppenheimer had a budget of $100 million, making the game more expensive than the Oscar-winning movie. Not just that, a team of 300 developers was formed to create the game, which eventually turned out to be a disaster.
>A source has revealed to Reuters that Undawn only managed to bring in $287,000 for Tencent Games last month. Undawn was released on Android, iOS, and Microsoft Windows on 15 June 2023 and since then, the game’s revenue has proved that Undawn was a major gamble that was under Tencent Games’ “in-house” production plan.
>Under this plan, Tencent focuses on creating games within their organization so their profits are all their own and not shared. Setbacks like Undawn can be partially blamed for the delay of Tencent Games’ highly anticipated game, Assassin’s Creed: Jade, as they are focusing more on casual party games and Genshin Impact. Assassin’s Creed: Jade was originally slated for a late 2023 release but it has been now pushed back. Nonetheless, Undawn’s failure doesn’t slow down Tencent as they are known for creating many popular profitable video games like PUBG Mobile.

This is only semi-relevant to video games, but I wanted to have a handy link here. Short story, Newgrounds is apparently receiving takedown notices from Nintendo regarding porn of Nintendo characters, and Tom Fulp is complying like the cuck he is.

You're looking at what they can do. They threaten and sue the shit out of sites that host such content and if the servers are in a country that will comply then there's not much the owners can do about it. The fag calling him a cuck has never had to deal with being sued or has any idea how much even cases where you successfully defend yourself cost. Even one court case can be life ruining if you're not a multimillionaire and Newgrounds sure as fuck doesn't make Full that much money. The only other option is to sink a shitton of money into the court case and probably wind up having to shut the entire site down because he won't be able to afford keeping it around afterwards.

And even if Fulp did decide to fight Nintendo in court, he'd have to get a judge or jury with the mental faculties to consider that making porn of children's video game characters is something that should be allowed. Nobody is going to defend this position against normalfags because the second they hear "porn" and "princess peach" together they will instantly assume whomever is being accused of disrespecting the sacred intellectual property rights is a pedophile.

Guilty Gear Strive’s creators had to “destroy” past games to keep series alive
https://archive.is/DbWKU
>The process of making Guilty Gear Strive the breakout success it is today wasn’t an easy one. In our eye-opening conversation, series creator Ishiwatari explained the biggest difference between Strive and Xrd, claiming that their goal was to ‘break’ Xrd with Strive’s improvements.
>“The decisive difference between Strive and Xrd is that Strive was made to destroy Xrd,” he told us. “In that sense, we were trying to make Xrd as an example of failure. Of course, it wasn’t a failure, but we had to change the direction completely. We had to be prepared for that.”
>Game Director Akira Katano also chimed in, explaining that the team is focusing on their broader player base outside of Japan with Strive.
>“What we originally created came from a very limited world view, because we were focused more on our Japanese player base and values in terms of what we wanted to put into it,” he explained. “But with Strive, this is when our American division was born. And with Strive, we really wanted to expand our perspective and our field of view to the entire world. That’s another big difference in the mindset and the direction that we took when it came to Strive’s development.”
>“Since we decided to put more focus on the global market, we also have to start thinking about how we message to the global players,” producer Ken Miyauchi added. “We are very used to communicating to Japanese players. Even in the previous Guilty Gear Xrd, we ran a lot of location tests in Japan only, and had the first reveal in Japan. We took a step back from that kind of approach and tried to implement a new approach to messaging to the players around the world.”

Microsoft cautions developers to avoid curvy female characters
https://archive.md/ui0Q4
>Microsoft urges developers not to create female characters with “exaggerated body proportions” on their official site to support game devs.
>The site, titled “Product Inclusion Action: Help Customers Feel Seen” includes a bullet list of considerations they urge developers to make when working on their product. One Twitter user pointed out the language expressly condemning certain female characters as reinforcing “negative gender stereotypes”.
>Are you reinforcing any negative gender stereotypes?
>Are you unnecessarily introducing gender & gender barriers into your code or design?
>Are you creating playable female characters that are equal in skill and ability to their male peers. Are your female characters equipped with clothing and armor that fits their tasks?  Do they have exaggerated body proportions?
>When the story allows, do you show male characters who display a full range of emotions, including joy, sadness, and vulnerability?
>Recently, western game developers have been making a point to rally against “objectification” in games and are citing unrealistic beauty standards set by fictional characters. Most recently, Stellar Blade has been the subject of such criticism despite the game’s heroine being based off of a real life model.
>Between Microsoft’s developer site and Stellar Blade it seems there’s been a reversal of roles. In recent years Sony has been criticized for it’s censorship policies after relocating its gaming business units to California.
>Gamers have been more vigilant in recent weeks following an attempted harassment campaign initiated by an employee of Sweet Baby Inc against a Steam curator and his personal account. The controversy has spilled over from the employee’s actions to a wider conversation about narrative consultation in video games.

While this statement may be true in the sense that having the option to play as or create a character that shares some traits (skin color etc) with the player might lead to increased sales, I very much doubt that players want to see exactly themselves in a game or any other media.
Beauty is a virtue. Beauty standards represent an ideal towards which to strive for. Beauty also often goes hand in hand with health. And just as there are less than beautiful, less than handsome people in real life, good looking people do exist.
Oh what's that I hear? Beauty is problematic now? Well, give me a new Star Wars/capeshit movie where the main character is an average looking dude or girl, I'll wait.

The public idea of curvy is closer to an hourglass figure than a chubby woman. The inclusive idea of curvy starts at chubby and ends at obese. More than coincidentally, this is also the black idea of curvy. The justification for this disparity is the same argument that was used against fashion models for being skinny.

Crypto miners are buying up all the AMD Ryzen CPUs
https://archive.md/Yc61J
>Here we go again: The supply of AMD Radeon graphics cards was already tight, with demand surging in China. Still, with Bitcoin and Ethereum skyrocketing, crypto miners have gone into overdrive, buying up all the stock. The demand will be even worse when Zen 5 comes to market since they are rumored to offer twice the AVX512 performance of Zen 4.
>Cryptocurrency mining has always led to a resource drain, particularly in power, water, and land. Crypto miners are now buying AMD Ryzen CPUs in bulk, resulting in shortages. The Ryzen 9 7950X, which is one of the most powerful desktop CPUs for gaming or productivity, is highly sought after in certain regions such as Qubic because it supports AVX2 or AVX512 instruction sets, the key to many mining rigs, as well as its overall efficiency.
>It's also more lucrative. A miner can generate almost twice as much profit using 7950X CPUs versus the flagship Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, partly because of the latter's higher price point. Rumors suggest that things will only worsen when Zen 5 CPUs enter mass production later this year.
>Chinese technology outlet UDN expects Zen 5 chips to enter TSMC fabs between April and June, with mass production scheduled for the following quarter. Mainstream Zen 5 CPUs will feature "Nirvana" cores, while chips designed for the dense-compute segment for client and server applications will ship with Zen 5c "Prometheus" cores, the publication said.
>Of greater importance to crypto miners, though, is that the next-gen AMD chip architecture will offer twice the AVX512 performance of Zen 4, according to Kepler_LS. It also happens that AMD Radeon graphics cards were already in short supply in China due to the US ban on exports of RTX 4090s to the region.
>The Ryzen 9 7950X is out of stock on Amazon, Newegg, and other retailers. However, some are available through Best Buy and AMD's online store. It didn't take MEGAsizeGPU to figure out what was happening.
>"Now I understand," he wrote in a follow-up post. "7950X is the king in Qubic mining."
Report: Sony stops producing PSVR2 amid “surplus” of unsold units
https://archive.md/Qujv3
>It looks like Sony's PlayStation VR2 is not living up to the company's sales expectations just over a year after it first hit the market. Bloomberg reports that the PlayStation-maker has stopped producing new PSVR2 units as it tries to clear out a growing backlog of unsold inventory.
>Bloomberg cites "people familiar with [Sony's] plans" in reporting that PSVR2 sales have "slowed progressively" since its February 2023 launch. Sony has produced "well over 2 million" units of the headset, compared to what tracking firm IDC estimates as just 1.69 million unit shipments to retailers through the end of last year. The discrepancy has caused a "surplus of assembled devices... throughout Sony’s supply chain," according to Bloomberg's sources.
>IDC estimates a quarterly low of 325,000 PSVR2 units shipped in the usually hot holiday season, compared to a full 1.3 million estimated holiday shipments for Meta's then-new Quest 3 headset, which combined with other Quest products to account for over 3.7 million estimated sales for the full year.
>The last of the tethered headsets?
>The reported state of affairs for PSVR2 is a big change from the late 2010s when the original PlayStation VR became one of the bestselling early VR headsets simply by selling to the small, VR-curious slice of PS4 owners. At the time, the original PSVR was one of the cheapest "all-in" entry points for the nascent market of tethered VR headsets, in large part because it didn't require a connection to an expensive, high-end gaming PC.
>Put it all together, and PSVR2 seems like a too-little-too-late upgrade that has largely squandered the company's early lead in the space. We wouldn't be shocked if this spells the end of the line for Sony's VR hardware plans and for mass-market tethered headsets in general.

Former Deadspin owner G/O Media puts The Onion up for sale: source

Shane Smith Scrambles to Save What’s Left of Vice, the Media Empire He Built – and Blew Up | Exclusive
https://archive.md/XNHag
>“Shane Smith has been telling anyone who will listen for the last 18 months that he is buying Vice Media back,” a former colleague told TheWrap, noting that in December, Smith was telling friends he “was looking for capital” to finance a deal to buy half of the company for $50 million.
>“He’s talking to everybody, literally everyone he can” to fund a deal, said another knowledgeable individual, a media investor who was skeptical that Smith could pull it off.
>“It’s not impossible, but it’s hard,” the individual said. “Because everybody who invested before lost their money. Everyone who followed them last time, what did they get for it? They lost a lot of money. Is he still the voice of a generation now that all the staff are being laid off? Perhaps not.”
News outlets are collapsing as advertisers flock to social media platforms. It has major implications for society
https://archive.md/7MzLo
>Social media companies are soaking up the billions in advertising dollars that once flowed to legacy media companies — a trend that continues to accelerate despite an ever-growing mountain of evidence indicating the Silicon Valley titans govern their ballooning kingdoms with little regard for how their products negatively impact society.
>While the dramatic shift has empowered these companies, it has also simultaneously dealt massive blows to news organizations, most of which are struggling to survive as they see their one-time revenue sources sour on their products in favor of tech platforms.
>Just two months into 2024, several news organizations are already collapsing in plain sight. The Messenger shuttered last month; an already-slimmed down BuzzFeed announced it would slash 16% of its remaining staff; and Vice Media said it would lay off hundreds of employees and cease publishing on its website as it pivots to an entirely new business model. Over the last few years, the situation has grown more dire, with nearly every major news organization cutting their workforces to survive — if they can. Hundreds of local outlets have not been so lucky, closing their doors as advertising dollars disappear.
>Not only are these news organizations crucial to the communities — both local and national — that they serve, but they also diligently work to ensure that their platforms are grounded in facts and free of abuse. You’re not going to find articles promoting body dysmorphia in the pages of The New York Times. The Wall Street Journal is not going to casually elevate carelessly risky investment advice. CNN will not enrich itself through imagery exploiting children.
>But when the executives of those companies, the very humans who control the platforms, find out about such content and are questioned about it? Well, plenty of evidence has shown they’ve often run the playbook of releasing vague public statements while failing to address the root causes in a meaningful way.
>Just take last week for example. The Journal and The Times published reports (see here and here) indicating that Meta willfully allowed child sexual exploitation to exist on Instagram. The reports were both disturbing and damning, outlining how the popular platform is abused by some parents willing to sell content to predators. “The content, often featuring young girls in bikinis and leotards, was sold to an audience that was overwhelmingly male and often overt about sexual interest in the children in comments on posts or when they communicated with the parents,” The Journal’s Jeff Horowitz and Katherine Blunt reported.
>The duo noted that Meta said it is committed to child safety and monitors its platform for abuse. But they also reported: “A review by the Journal of some of the most popular parent-run modeling accounts on Instagram and Facebook revealed obvious failures of enforcement. One parent-run account banned last year for child exploitation had returned to the platforms, received official Meta verification and gained hundreds of thousands of followers. Other parent-run accounts previously banned on Instagram for exploitative behavior continued selling child-modeling content via Facebook.”
>Of course, this doesn’t represent the vast majority of the content on Meta’s platforms. But could you imagine if a legacy news organization trafficked in such behavior, even on rare occasion? The company would immediately be abandoned by advertisers and publicly excoriated, with executives having to issue apologies and beg for forgiveness. But when it’s Big Tech? Outside some brief boycotts that have sprouted up over the years and the occasional Capitol Hill committee hearing in which lawmakers (most of whom don’t understand the basics of these platforms) implore them to do more, the world largely turns a blind eye and endlessly scroll.
>In effect, a substantial portion of the advertising dollars that once supported the carefully manicured gardens of legacy media outlets have migrated over to a free-for-all hellscape ruled by mostly unregulated Silicon Valley deities who prioritize profits and growth over the public good. As a result, the news organizations which work tirelessly to behave responsibly are seeing their business models collapse and future jeopardized, while executives like Mark Zuckerberg tout record profits.
>To be fair, brands would likely prefer to advertise on the platforms of responsible media actors versus the risky world of social media. But Big Tech offers these brands much more effective targeting, while boasting a larger and younger audience than legacy news organizations. To make matters worse, news companies have been far too slow to adapt to the changing technological landscape, often sporting ugly websites and apps (sorry, it’s true!) and lacking the tools necessary to hone in on specific audiences advertisers want to spend their dollars to reach.
>It’s a cocktail for disaster — one that will have profound impacts on civilization in the years ahead. News organizations, crucial to a functioning society, are being hollowed out, if not outright dying. Meanwhile, technology giants, which have allowed for harmful content to gain a foothold in the digital public square, are thriving.

You can even use PKGi to download PSP games from Sony's servers and have it dump them onto Adrenaline's fake memory stick for a seamless experience.

Flagging megacorp Embracer Group is now selling off Gearbox Entertainment to Take-Two for $460 million
https://web.archive.org/web/20240328113200/https://www.pcgamer.com/gaming-industry/flagging-megacorp-embracer-group-is-now-selling-off-gearbox-entertainment-to-take-two-for-dollar460-million/
>Swedish games behemoth Embracer Group bought Gearbox for $1.3 billion back in 2021. Just over three years later, Embracer Group is divesting Gearbox Entertainment to 2K Games and Rockstar parent company Take-Two Entertainment for $460 million. The acquisition is expected to finalize by the end of June.
>Embracer will retain one piece of the Gearbox pie however, in the form of Gearbox Publishing San Francisco, which holds publishing rights to the Remnant series and Hyper Light Breaker, in addition to "other notable unannounced game releases". The remaining arm of the business will be renamed.
>Embracer Group has been ruthlessly downsizing to stay afloat, after years of seemingly monthly studio and publisher acquisitions. It sold off Saber Interactive last month to the tune of $247 million, and laid off around 1,400 people in 2023. Last year it shut Saints Row studio Volition and Square Enix Montreal, to name just a small handful of its big contractions. Rumors that Gearbox was on the out started as far back as September last year.
>Embracer's recent doom and gloom is in stark contrast to 2021-22: those were the days when the company was making huge acquisitions ranging Lord of the Rings through to some of Square Enix's former tentpole western studios, and receiving big investments from Saudi Arabia. But following the collapse of a $2 billion deal in 2023, which prompted an immediate and "comprehensive" restructuring of the business, most of the studios brought under the Embracer Group umbrella have suffered to one extent or another. Needless to say, a hell of a lot must have rested on that deal.
>"Today’s announcement marks the result of the final structured divestment process and is an important step in transforming Embracer into the future with notably lower net debt and improved free cash flow," Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors said in a prepared statement. "Through the transaction, we lower business risk and improve profitability as we transition to becoming a leaner and more focused company."
>Gearbox founder and Randy Pitchford had his say as well: "As a significant long-term Embracer Group shareholder, I believe in the strategy for the Embracer Group going forward and am completely convinced that this transaction is the best possible scenario and an obvious net positive arrangement for Embracer Group, for Take-Two and, of course, for Gearbox Entertainment. My primary interest is always Gearbox, especially our talent and our customers. I want to personally assure fans of our games that this arrangement will ensure that the experiences we have in development at Gearbox will be the best they can possibly be.”
>Two-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick also indicated in his own prepared statement that these corporate machinations are for the greater good. Gearbox will fall under the 2K umbrella as a studio, presumably with a focus on Borderlands games, which 2K has published since the series started in 2009. For its $460 million, Take-Two also gets other Gearbox IP including Homeworld, Risk of Rain, Brothers in Arms, and Duke Nukem.

Gearbox has almost nothing of value left. Homeworld 3 is coming out soon, but it is niche at best. They'll fuck up Risk of Rain 3 and kill the indie darling they had.

Layoffs Hit Gearbox Staff Hours After Embracer Sale
https://archive.is/IcDh2
>Less than a day after the news that Take-Two Interactive would acquire Borderlands developer Gearbox Entertainment from the embattled Embracer Group, layoffs have already begun. In the hours since former Gearbox employees were made redundant, they've taken to Twitter, and while the total number of staff impacted remains hard to determine, it sounds significant.
>Insider Gaming has reached out to Gearbox and new parent Take-Two Interactive for comment, but in the meantime, blindsided staff are telling the story for them. Former PR Manager Jennifer Locke posted: "Along with countless others, I've just been informed I've been laid off at Gearbox." Senior user research investigator Jewels Verne said, "I just lost my job", and Chris Harada, director of online engagement, wrote on LinkedIn, "After three incredible years at Gearbox, my journey with the company has concluded."
>Embracer Group sold the Texas-based company for just $460 million, less than half what it paid for Gearbox in 2021, shelling out some $1.3 billion then to acquire the studio in the first place. That's an approximate loss of $840 million in just over two years, illustrating quite well the ridiculous state of the video game industry.

Nintendo Confirms Testing Layoffs Amid First-Party 'Lull' and Reports of Switch 2 Delay
https://archive.is/4rNFm
>With few major games on the horizon and the Switch 2 seemingly delayed, Nintendo of America's testing department is undergoing major changes, according to a new report from Kotaku that includes a statement from Nintendo.
>In its statement, Nintendo acknowledged that it is restructuring its internal testing, which will "involve some contractor assignments ending, as well as the creation of a significant number of new full-time employee positions."
>"For all assignments that are ending, the contractors’ agencies, with [Nintendo of America's] support, will offer severance packages and provide assistance during their transition," Nintendo said in its statement. "For those contractor associates who will be leaving us, we are tremendously grateful for the important contributions they’ve made to our business, and we extend our heartfelt thanks for their hard work and service to Nintendo."
>According to the contractors in the report, the restructuring comes as the company faces a "lull" in its testing department. The contractors claim that Nintendo has no new major first-party games on the horizon and that no one has had hands-on time testing the upcoming Switch successor — which was initially rumored to release toward the end of 2024.
>While the official number of employees impacted by layoffs is unknown, four former and current Nintendo employee claimed in Kotaku's report that the restructuring could potentially affect over 100 workers, and that those being converted to full-time employment are being moved out of software testing.

IGN France Scrambles To Backpedal After Writing Off ‘Stellar Blade’ Protagonist Eve As “A Doll Sexualized By Someone Who Has Never Seen A Woman”
https://archive.is/LVZfm
>In the latest example of the Western video game press having a chip on their shoulder when it comes to media created not just by Japan, but apparently and East Asian nation, IGN France has found themselves scrambling to defend themselves after writing off Stellar Blade‘s lead protagonist Eve, despited being based entirely on the real-world appearance of an actual female model, of being nothing more than the “sexualized” fantasy of “someone who has never seen a woman”.
>Following a brief overview of the game’s post-apocalypse, humanity-must-fight-for-survival premise, the outlet’s Ben Ossola took a detour to share his protestations against Eve’s ‘sexually appealing’ character design.
>“The design of the game, in particular its character, highlights an obvious bias,” wrote Ossola, per an English translation of his piece provided by this article’s author. “We’re going to beat up the alien, but if we can do it while pleasuring the eyes of the men, that’s a bonus.”
>“And the result doesn’t really work,” he continued. “It’s not new, and other games have made the choice to highlight the assets of their female characters, but where Bayonetta bears an iconic character design, or 2B from NieR: Automata, inspired an entire generation of cosplayers, Stellar Blade’s Eve is just boring. A doll sexualized by someone who has never seen a woman.”
>Unfortunately for Ossola, even the briefest of internet searches regarding Stellar Blade‘s development reveals that his complaints are based not in any real-world fact, but rather his own personal hang-ups.
>To start, Eve’s designer, game director and the CEO of its publishing company Shift Up Hyung-Tae Kim, has definitely seen a woman before, as evidenced by the fact that he is currently married to Shift Up concept artist Jiyun Chae.
>Further, while Eve herself may be a fictional character, her appearance is not, instead being based on a full, 1:1 body scan of real-world South Korean model Shin Jae-eun.
>“Yes, we did base the character of Eve on the model Shin Jae-eun,” the aforementioned Kim explained to PushSquare of his protagonist’s conception. “We thought that her body shape would be a good reference for the character that we were pursuing. But the face was created originally in-house – it’s just the body of the model that we scanned for the game.”
>In light of both their ignoring of these facts and their blatant attempt to insult Kim, both Osolla and IGN France soon found themselves facing a massive wave of backlash from the general public regarding their lack of journalistic integrity.
>However, rather than respond to this outrage by admitting to having completely missed the mark with their accusations, the writer and outlet instead moved to try and cover up their shoddy work by blaming the public for having ‘misread’ their original statement.
>Changing their insulting description of Eve from “A doll sexualized by someone who has never seen a woman” to “A doll sexualized by someone you would think has never seen a woman,” Osolla then added the pompous disclaimer, in English, that “This last sentence has been slightly edited for French speaking people pretending not to understand what we meant, and the English speaking mob who Google Translated the initial text.”
>However, since then, IGN France has amended the disclaimer to instead claim that the article was edited “following death threats”.
>Notably, neither Osolla nor IGN France have provided any proof of having received any such threats.

>You can't get any worse than a company stealing away something you purchased from (((  them  )))
Except, I didn't "purchase" it. In fact, Ubishit gave the game away for free a few years ago. But this was also long after I swore off buying, let alone playing, a game that I have zero control over. I don't need to play The Crew, let alone lament it's death, when I can play Test Drive Unlimited, Burnout Paradise, Fuel, and so on. This is not" me saying that companies can do whatever because it doesn't effect me. What I am saying is that I DON'T CARE and LOSE ALL INTEREST IN supporting people who KNOW they're being fucked over, finally ARE fucked over, and then requesting the help of everyone else to prevent people from being fucked over "Ever again".

Your "i don't care" attitude and your insane abuse of formatting and caps lock indicates you are a huge faggot. The simple fact is that currently video games are among the least fair goods/services on the planet, and there is no legal framework for forcing a company to do anything in good faith (like patch the game to be playable offline, or not make it GaaS in the first place). Ross wants to change that, and The Crew being shut down being rendered unplayable presents a timely opportunity to gather public support around the issue. The guy has repeatedly said that he doesn't expect there to be a good chance for success, but he simply wants to make the effort to establish some kind of solid legal ruling: either we own nothing and we must be happy, or the law should be doing something to help us.

>you guys should have voted with your wallet!
Ignoring that normalfags are easily manipulated, this doesn't work when companies like Ubisoft mooch money off the govt via cultural grants and the usual Blackrock/Vanguage money ball. They exist outside of the free market, so the retarded libertarian notion that financial pressure will force them to behave differently is out of touch with reality. Companies inside and outside the video game industry have colossal failures all the time but they never change their methods because the people who control the company's direction are all toner heads who were inserted into the C-level exec suite and have no idea how the company ladder works.

Nobody is asking you to go ringing on doorbells to get support for Ross's campaign, but the absolute least you could do is not act like a huge faggot. If you claim to be above the situation then you would know this and you wouldn't bother screaming about something that either doesn't change the status quo, or has a chance to make the status quo better.

Yes there is, you don't buy nor play games made by those companies.
>he simply wants to make the effort to establish some kind of solid legal ruling
Getting things done through the legal system will result in nothing changing at best. At worst, the very same companies pushing these practices are going to be the ones writing the laws that "regulate" how these companies operate in the future.

>mooch money off the govt via cultural grants and the usual Blackrock/Vanguage money ball
And those companies are finances are plummeting because customers are tired of their shit, and shareholders are writing up lawsuits (If they haven't already filed them) for these companies having abandoned their fiduciary duties.
<But they're being funded through ESG.
No, they're not:https://archive.ph/3k16u
And it's not just the U.S.: https://archive.ph/MREbl
That's not to mention that even the government is going after BlackRock: https://archive.ph/IDmiU
On several fronts: https://archive.ph/odkW1
ESG only works so long as the people remain complacent. And they are not. The SBI debacle is proof of that where, within a month, game companies are now running scared because of some no-name Brazilian with a list.
>but the absolute least you could do is not act like a huge faggot
No, the absolute "least" I can do is ridicule you people for doing something stupid in the first place, long after you ignored all of the warning signs present.

Let me put this another way. Did you play Dragon's Dogma 2 or Helldivers 2 after everything Capcom and Sony have been doing for the past several years? If so, it's not my fault you're the one getting fucked in the ass.

>it's a waste of time for Ross to launch legal action against ubisoft because nothing will come from it
<btw ur wrong about ubisoft mooching off the govt because they're being sued

>some legal action is being taken against BlackRock by some states
<therefore all the cultural damage done over the last couple decades will be fixed
(You posted the same article via two different links, you fucking idiot.)

>you play the crew
>you play dragon's dogma 2
>you play helldivers 2

What do you gain from being this stupid? Why are you so unhappy that something bad may happen to your enemy?

What do you gain by trying to save slop instead of letting it die? Do you want to archive every shitty Korean MMO and gacha non-game too? Some things just aren't worth fighting for.

>Except time I can spend doing something else rather than filling in forms online
Unless you're in France, it's just sighing a partition that takes under a minute mostly. There's no need to be this pissy about it.

The link in the CP2 report list hadn't been delisted and I really want XJ9K to fix the problem right now.
