What a crazy week. I got in to Fortnite Battle Royale, I had an undefeated day in Smite, and Spring arrived with over 5 inches of snow… o_O; I can’t forget the amazing series I finished reading this week as Obsidio was such a great conclusion to the trilogy that I legit cried at one point. I can’t recommend the Illuminae Files series enough!
- One of the craziest things I’ve seen from GDC is Epic showing off Siren, a real time motion capture technology from Unreal Engine. It is super awesome!
- US Navy’s Newest Attack Submarine is partially operated with a wired XBox 360 controller because of cost and ease of use for younger service members.
- Another GDC news bit that is more on the somber side of things, is a a talk about the reality of Steam’s game sales numbers, and that just being on Steam doesn’t mean much anymore.
- Weeaboos out there can rejoice as NFL Star Mike Daniels helps break the stereotype of a nerd in their parents’ basement with some great cosplay. He also says the league is filled with fellow Otaku.
- Sad news for beer fans as Reddit has officially banned r/beertrade due to a crackdown on various items and services. While beer wasn’t a target, it sadly was caught up in the site wide ban due to being alcohol.
