Marvel and Disney Remember Stan Lee

Today, Marvel Comics and The Walt Disney Company pause and reflect with great sadness on the passing of Marvel Chairman Emeritus, Stan Lee. With a heavy heart, we share our deepest condolences with his daughter and brother, and we honor and remember the creator, voice and champion of Marvel. “Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created. A super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart,” said Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company. Stanley Martin Lieber, a.k.a. Stan Lee, loved the written word from an early age, and wanted to craft stories like those in his favorite books and films, which he consumed voraciously. From a simple upbringing in the teeming landscape of Manhattan, young Stanley worked his way through a succession of jobs until the day he found himself an assistant at a comic book publishing company — Timely Comics.

TO FEEL LESS DEPRESSED AND LONELY, LIMIT SOCIAL MEDIA USE TO 30 MINUTES A DAY, RESEARCHERS SAY

A number of studies have by now correlated social media use with mental-health risks, such as loneliness and depression. But correlation isn’t causation, leaving a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem: Is social media actually behind these issues, or are people who are already depressed and lonely just more likely to spend time on social media? A new study being published in December’s Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has tried to look into the causal side of things, and see whether people may actually feel better when they cut down on social media. Its conclusion: “Our findings strongly suggest that limiting social media use to approximately 30 minutes per day may lead to significant improvement in well-being,” the authors write.

Domino’s is making fun of the Diablo Immortal reveal to sell pizza

Domino’s Pizza – yes, the pizza joint – has had a jab at the Diablo Immortal reveal during BlizzCon 2018 in a Facebook promotion for its ‘Treasure Chest’ deal. A Facebook post by Domino’s Pizza Malaysia contains an image that, at the top, reads, “This is not an out-of-season April Fool’s joke.” This is a reference to the moment during the Q&A session for the Diablo Immortal reveal when one member of the audience asked, “Is this an out-of-season April Fool’s joke?”

Steam bug allowed unlimited free downloads

A man has been given $20,000 (£15,500) for discovering a bug in the Steam video games store that let people download any game for free. Security researcher Artem Moskowsky found a flaw in Steam’s portal for games developers that let anybody generate licence keys without paying.

Five Nights at Freddy’s movie delayed, new ‘AAA’ game in the works

Scott Cawthon’s Five Nights at Freddy’s series shows no signs of slowing down, with a feature film, a new sequel, updated console ports and a new “big-budget game” in development. Cawthon outlined the future for Five Nights at Freddy’s on Steam earlier today, starting with the bad news: The movie based on the horror games has been delayed (even though it didn’t have an announced release date). Earlier this year, Blumhouse Productions announced that it was developing a live-action Five Nights at Freddy’s movie with director Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) at the helm. But Cawthon said that this movie will take a little longer to complete, as he’s thrown out his original script.

Samsung’s 8K QLED TV looks great, but who needs it?

Samsung’s 8K ambitions became a bit more real today with the announcement of the Q900R, its first 8K QLED set that you’ll be able to buy. It’s the company’s follow-up to the Q9S concept we saw at CES, complete with the same AI processing to upscale content into something resembling 8K. That feature is particularly important, since it gives Samsung a reason to deliver an 8K TV before there’s any real content available. Based on my short time ogling the Q900R at Samsung’s IFA booth, it certainly looks great. But at the end of the day, I wonder who really needs it.

What Remains Of Edith Finch

This indie smash which arrived in 2017 has recently won a “best game” in BAFTA awards.  This is a narrative- led adventure in which you walk, first-person style, around as Edith Finch and exploring the house in which you grew up.  It is sort of an interactive movie.

The first Ni No Kuni game was a collaboration with Japanese animation masters Studio Ghibli.  This game my not be a collaboration, but it retains the same charming art style.

It has changed the fighting mechanics and has a more action packed feel this time.  It is not just about fighting, though.  You get to build a kingdom in this game and earn bonuses for your character.

Apple issues new App Store rules For Streaming PC-based games

Tech giant Apple Inc. has issued new review guidelines for App Store intended for streaming PC-based video games. Apple’s decision attempts to block Steam’s proposal to extend its reach in both iPhones and iPads.

 

Steam is the considered to be the biggest distributor of video games for PC.

Apple’s remote mirroring apps

 

The new guidelines of the Cupertino-based company would now decide what apps should appear in the App Store. This means that any applications could not host anything even that app looks like an app store that is within the app.

 

 

In short, the company won’t give any users the sole absolute ability to “browse, select, or purchase software not already owned or licensed by the user.”

 

According to Apple, these new rules are called “remote mirroring apps.” This new rule works by beaming the screen of a PC to an iPhone. By doing so, it could allow purchases outside Apple’s control, provided that any give transactions were processed on PC and not through iPhone.

 

Meanwhile, several tech users claim that Apple’s decision is certainly significant. They pointed out that the company wants only to shield its practice of taking between 15 percent and 30 percent of the purchase price of software bought in the App Store.

 

 

Steam has announced its plan to release a free mobile phone app called Steam Link so gamers could continue playing on their iPhones while away from their desktop machines.

 

But the Bellevue, Steam’s parent company, in a separate statement, has slammed Apple for rejecting the Steam Link app. The Steam Link app is a free mobile app that allows gamers to play video games using their iPhones.
