Death Stranding can be understood as a metaphor for America, Trump, and even the EU, according to its creator. Death Stranding’s recent trailer lingers on the idea of a divided people. And the message is pretty clear. “It’s about America,” Hideo Kojima tells Game Informer, “but I made that map deliberately not correctly America. Maybe it looks like Japan from that angle. I want people to not think ‘America,’ but ‘where you are.’ Because it depends on who is seeing it. And of course, it’s in the future, and everyone’s connected by internet, but everyone is fragmented. That’s kind of a metaphor as well.” In Death Stranding, you play as Sam, tasked with connecting the country to the chiral network, a super communications system that is available to those who join the United Cities of America. What results is a land of those who are connected, and those who are not – and it’s in that dynamic that you … [Read more...] about Death Stranding is a metaphor for Trump, says Kojima
Tis' the season for gaming laptop deals, particularly at Walmart. Those in the market for a decent workhorse of a gaming laptop might be interested in checking out the Lenovo Legion Y545 that Walmart has on sale. It's rollbacked the price to $1,199.00 with a savings of $400 dollars off the regular price. This model has an Intel Core i7-9750H Hexa-Core Processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB Graphics Card, 16GB RAM with a 15.6" FHD 144Hz IPS Anti-Glare Display. Not a bad price considering the hardware. Personally, I would have loved a larger SSD than the stock 512GB and, the 720p webcam isn't anything spectacular. Good thing you can check out our best webcams if you plan on streaming. Other than that, the Legion is no joke under the hood for gaming at 1080p gaming. If you're still looking for the perfect laptop.

“A Bridge-Hacking Expansion”, in detail! Here’s an update on how the Kickstarter is doing: As of the time of this writing, it was just over 90%, in under a week! Feeling really good about that. I’ve also been working hard on the Bridge Hacking Expansion, finishing up some art and doing some playtesting. Here’s some good news: it’s all going really well! Here’s some deets on it. Bridge Hacking!? In a card game??? They said it couldn’t be done. They said we didn’t have the technology. They said a lot of weird stuff—I don’t know what that was all about. But I DO know what this expansion is all about, and it’s this: making the game BIGGER, making it feel like a richer strategic space to live in. We achieve this in the typical way of just adding more content, which we’ll get to, but also by adding a whole new axis of actions, and a resource system: Bridge Hacking, and white gems. There is a pool of 10 White Gem … [Read more...] about “A Bridge-Hacking Expansion”, in detail!
Twitch has temporarily suspended the account of streamer Quqco for violating its guidelines on "sexually suggestive content or activities." The suspension arose following a weekend stream during which she was cosplaying as Street Fighter stalwart Chun-Li. As noted by Kotaku (and known by even casual Street Fighter fans), the outfit includes a thigh-high slit. But Quqco told the site that she "bought one size up to ensure that the slit wasn't too high."Quqco also told Kotaku that the suspension was due to "a group of trolls" who have been repeatedly targeting her with mass reports. "I am immediately reported because I’ve been branded a thot," she said. Quqco was previously banned in August for dressed as King of Fighters character Mai Shiranui, which she said was also the result of a targeted online campaign to report her by members of the LivestreamFail subreddit. A LivestreamFail moderator denied any connection to the most recent stream, but according to Kotaku, one … [Read more...] about Twitch streamer suspended for Chun-Li cosplay
