Saw this a few weeks back so I wrote a little review. As I often do.
Big Hero 6 is a Pixar film in the best sense. It is every bit as well written, character driven, and overflowing with charm as Toy Story or Wall-E.

"Atari" forcing Jeff Minter to stop selling TxK;
http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/03/18/txk-pc-port-cancelled-atari-legal/
In a world of crazy lawsuits this one is particularly disgusting.
Yes, the game he is making is similar to a one a long time ago he made for them.
But then they released a near identical game (Tempest X) claimed it was "different" and thus didn't need to pay him loyalty's.
That game used the same assets, much of the same code, same music and EVEN INCLUDED HIS GAME (Tempest 2000) AS AN UNLOCKABLE.
But it was "different".
Now decades latter he releases a game. Brand new code. Brand new assets (actually no assets, its procedural), new music.
But its "similar" and they are forcing him to remove it from sale.

They are claiming categorically wrong things in their claims list too....purely because they know he wont be able to afford to fight them all separately even though most are nonsense.

"Atari"...which is actually Infogrames these days....should be utterly ashamed of themselves.
Jeff Minter has been making tip-top arcade shooters for a good thirty years now, including classics like Space Giraffe, Gridrunner, Revenge of the Mutant

This is an incredible painting software. Free. Linux,Mac,Windows.
You can now paint in HDR and change the exposure as you like.
You can have a layer taken from a another file, have it cloned transformed and edited....and it will update when that original file updates.
This software is one of the biggest leaps forward in painting tech I have seen. Really recommended.
 
And there it is! https://krita.org/item/krita-2-9-0-the-kickstarter-release/ -- months of hard work, lots of support from everyone in our community. The biggest release to date!

Nice interview with Gargoyles creator Greg Weisman. Mostly focused on the creation of the show and how cartoons are paid for by toys far more then viewers.
Greg Weisman is a titan of animation in the action field, and has left his print firmly on the [...]

Saw this a few months back. Enjoyable enough but could have been much better with just a little more work on the script.

"playing around the office" implies this is more then a concept.
And yet I am clearly seeing overlays darker then the background. No matter how much lightfield tricks you use if its a projection that isnt possible.

Interesting AI development. Playing Space Invaders isn't a big deal, the big deal is it played 48 other classic games - without code changes inbetween. It just learnt from experience.Interesting AI development. Playing Space Invaders isn't a big deal, the big deal is it played 48 other classic games - without code changes inbetween.

A review I sponsored of a film I thought was pretty good.
Joe Heath reviews the film in his usual informative, funny, not-scared-to-make-crazy-plots-with-elaborate-continuity self. I also feel a bit guilty for the amount of effort he must have put into recreating one particularly shot from the movie.
Anyone that has seen Triangle probably knows the "one shot" I am talking about.
