Interesting post about getting rid of lag on the Killzone blog.
Cross-Region Play We've increased the time it takes before you can be matched outside your own region. This means that, for a popular warzone like '24 Player Team Deathmatch', 99% of EU/US players, 96% of LATAM/Australian/Japanese players, and 92% of the Asian players will now get matched in ...

I haven't tried Sonyfied, but seems like a good idea. Sonyfied is a website you access with the PS4s browser that has  PS4 specific browser games like Cut the Rope, Pac-Man, Flow, etc.

I recently toured the Salisbury Cathedral. I noticed these fossil shells in the polished marble of some of the columns inside.

Well. This is cool.
 
How do you explain this effect?

Look at the cross in the center and notice your peripheral vision.

*it seems as though some people cannot see the distortions. Maybe it has something to do with occular focus? Farsighted people cannot see the distortions?

The things we get to see are amazing.
 
The Earth’s Seasonal “Heartbeat” as Seen from Space

We all know that as the seasons change on Earth, temperatures rise and fall, plants grow or die, ice forms or melts away. Perhaps nobody is more aware of this than NASA’s Visible Earth team who provide a vast catalog of images of our home planet as seen from space. Last month designer, cartographer, and dataviz expert John Nelson download a sequence of twelve cloud-free satellite imagery mosaics of Earth, one from each month, and then created a number of vivid animated gifs showing the seasonal changes in vegetation and land ice around the world.

Despite having encountered numerous seasonal timelapse videos shot here on Earth, this is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like this visualized on such a large scale from space. It really looks like a heartbeat or the action of breathing.

I want to get it but I need to wait before I start buying more Vita titles... I need a sale on 32GB Vita cards in Canada first.

Nice. I was wondering about procedural design ever since it was a talking point for the new game by Hello Games.
 
Opinion: Stop dwelling on graphics and embrace procedural generation - http://www.polygon.com/2013/12/10/5192058/opinion-stop-dwelling-on-graphics-and-embrace-procedural-generation

New consoles (so sweet!), 40,000 polygons (many emotions!), really textured rocks (wow!).

Have you ever seen concrete pipes so... beautiful? We've done it, we've made graphics look "real," let's go home. We've hit a point where it takes huge increases in detail just to produce a tiny improvement in perception, and huge numbers of people to achieve that.
