Google’s Chrome turned 10 yesterday, and Google has major plans for where to take the browser from here — including options that could revamp how we experience the internet at its most fundamental level — the URL. For the past few years, Google has been considering how to transform the Uniform Resource Locator system into something that scales more effectively for the modern web.
The Nintendo Switch is getting a big dose of strategy later this year. Today, 2K announced that Civilization VI is coming to the portable console, and the game is due to launch on November 16th. The Switch version looks to be the full game, and it will even come bundled with some of the later additions to the game, including the Viking, Poland, Australia, and Persia and Macedon content packs. It’ll also feature co-op and competitive play for up to four people playing wirelessly.
Josh Bass, art director at Rockstar San Diego, and Aaron Garbut, director of art at Rockstar North, caught up with The Hollywood Reporter to offer exclusive information about the hotly anticipated game and the gang of outlaws at the core of its story. “Dutch’s presence loomed over the original Red Dead Redemption, and his influence on events was a big inspiration for the setting and direction of Red Dead Redemption 2,” Bass tells THR. “We all wanted to know more about him and the gang — what was it like riding in that gang? What led them to the events of the original game? What happened to them along the way?”
When Ubisoft’s E3 trailer for Starlink: Battle for Atlas ended with a tease for a Nintendo crossover, I was delighted — but I wasn’t impressed. The sound of Fox McCloud’s distinctive radio chatter spurred my nostalgia, but my initial impression was the same. Ubisoft’s space-faring toys-to-life game wasn’t going to be a real Star Fox game. It wasn’t until I played the game for myself at a preview event that I realized how true that prediction really was. Starlink: Battle for Atlas isn’t a follow-up to Nintendo’s beloved space shooter — so far, it’s better.
