Dauntless goes on the hunt for the fiery Embermane
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 February 2017, 9:00 pm
As a co-op monster hunting title, Dauntless will not be wasting players' time with stomping out rat infestations or scavenging for boar livers. Instead, the game will be throwing adventurers into the deep end of the monster pool with truly large and terrifying opponents, such as Embermane.

AI turns Game Boy Camera photos into decent shots
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 February 2017, 6:13 pm

Many people have fond memories of using the Game Boy Camera, but to call its low-resolution black-and-white shots "photos" would be... generous. Don't tell that to Roland Meertens, though. He recently devised a neural network that turns Game Boy Camera images into more presentable pictures. He trained the AI to clean up, colorize and fill in details for images by feeding it thousands of photos reduced to Game Boy-level image quality. The results aren't exactly good enough to frame for posterity, but they're far easier on the eyes.

The next Neverwinter patch will send players into the depths of the Spellplague Caverns, and you can be sure that the denizens therein will not be amenable to friendly conversation. No, you're going to have to fight things, and that means new boss encounters and mechanics to deal with. The developers aren't willing to completely divulge the mechanics of these [...]

The classic game of Simon is a test of memory and reflexes. How long a sequence can you remember, and how fast can you repeat it? The new Optix headset turns it into a test of stamina as well: How long can you stand having flashing lights directly in front of your face?

Second Life as a modern refuge for the disabled
