Facebook Launches M - A Siri Like Personal Assistant
Just like Siri and Cortana, Facebook's new M personal assistant can complete tasks and retrieve information on the fly. But, its the way that M does it that is truly innovating over others. M receives its users commands directly through text messages, and can complete tasks such as booking flights, placing reservations, making online purchases, and more.

This is a stark difference from the voice command based digital assistants we've seen in the past. So far Facebook is has begun to slowly roll out the new app to a limited set of users. It will be available on both IOS and Android.

Playing Just Cause 3 Day 1 Edition can win you a real island
The rules of entry are pretty simple. You need to pre-order the Day 1 Edition of Just Cause 3 on either Xbox One or PS4. When your game arrives on December 1, head on over to http://jc3winanisland.com and register for the competition followed by linking your PSN or Xbox Live account. There will be a special code in the Day 1 Edition box to enter, too. Once that’s done, you’re ready to compete.

Sega's bad decision making and inability to coordinate between their East and West offices is what made the life of Saturn so stormy. That and launching the 32X so soon before really confused consumers.
20 years ago, Sega created a beast of a console... unfortunately, the wrong beast for the wrong time.

It wasn't a bad system, it had good games, but what killed it was bad decision making on Sega's part. So much lost potential. Had the Dreamcast survive it could have helped to transform gaming.
15 years ago, Sega launched its final console, the short-lived Dreamcast. But what if it had survived?

I'd like to see backwards compatibility for the original XBOX games on the XBOX One. It would be nothing short of awesome if they did this.
 
Original Xbox games may get backwards compatibility on Xbox One may happen
One of the recent surprise announcements made by Microsoft is that the Xbox One was getting, and now has backwards compatibility implemented for Xbox 360 games. It’s being handled in software by emulating the Xbox 360 and a slow roll out of titles is being carried out before the official launch in November.
But of course, gamers are never completely happy and want “all the things,” so the inevitable question of original Xbox games compatibility has come up. And it’s not just gamers asking this question, Head of Xbox’s Phil Spencer has admitted he keeps asking the Backwards Compatibility team about it.

Retro Games  - 
 
As this article points out, retro gaming has become big business. JJ Hendricks, the founder of http://videogames.pricecharting.com/, a website built to track the current market prices surrounding retro games, predicts the industry is worth a whopping $200 million annually.

I too sell games on the web. We've tested embedding ebay listings on a small number of games we host online, and the results have been pretty good. Only 2 pages on our site include the ads, both of which are moderate in their amounts of traffic, as we're slowly testing to see what produces more positive results.

The Old School Game Vault (Brandon) who helps moderate and manage this community has been in the business of buying and selling classic titles for over a decade. From my experience on ebay and with this community, I have to say retro gaming is alive and well today.

Even the "not so old" consoles, like the original XBOX and the PS2 have various titles that go for good money. A mint copy of Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis on the original XBOX can fetch as much as $175.00, and older classics on consoles such as the NES can rake in thousands.
Old video games, once relegated to dusty bargain bins, have been cashing in on the nostalgia machine and can sell for thousands of dollars.

+The Old School Game Vault Yep! Just like how earlier this year people were dumping their older games like crazy for the newer consoles. And yet, all of a sudden I see demand going back up and less titles available for consoles like the PS2 and XBOX, effectively driving prices higher.

This week I look back and to now for Battletoads the arcade and part of Rare Replay.

...Take the premise of a morning cartoon show. Grab some animals, make them humanoid and muscular, give them attitude and over the top muscle physiques and set them against even bigger and more muscular characters and you've basically gotten every anthropomorphic cartoon you could imagine. Now set it in a video game and you've got Battletoads. Following the lovably named Zitz, Rash and Pimple, the trifecta of getting oneself down to the doctors, we watch as these beefed up toads decide to win a space war against a colourful assortment of characters by punching, kicking, slamming, fly-munching, bulldozing and chainsaw-knee-blading (I wish I was making this up) their way through level after level until the last boss is killed. What probably doesn't help here is that Battletoads became a cartoon show after the first game was made, then the arcade game came later...
Or don't and save your cash. Take the premise of a morning cartoon show. Grab some animals, make them humanoid and muscular, give them attitude and over the top muscle physiques and set them against even bigger and more mu...

I forgot all about this game until saw the post. What an awesome game it was in the old school arcades.
 
This week I look back to Lucky and Wild, drive and gun arcade fun.

...It's not quite on the rails shooter fun, it's not quite off the rails shooter fun, but the sheer idea alone of being able to drive down the street using a sit-down racer and then slap two extra guns into the dashboard, makes for a lot of fun assuming one player doesn't mind not being able to drive and just shoots things. Lucky and Wild actually brings something a little unique to the mix-up of sprite based light gun/joystick games...
Not the best title, try Cars and Guns It's not quite on the rails shooter fun, it's not quite off the rails shooter fun, but the sheer idea alone of being able to drive down the street using a sit-down racer and then slap ...

So, while we're yet to see a Left4Dead 3, this could suffice as an alternative. Although I haven't played zombie army trilogy. The maps in this game are supposed to be more open and not linear as is always the case in the actual left4dead games.
 
Left4Dead Survivors Make Appearance in Zombie Army Trilogy
Fans of Zombie Army Trilogy for PC can now download a free update thru Steam that adds all the classic characters from Left4Dead, including Zoey, Rochelle, Francis, Bill, Louis, Ellis, Nick, and Coach as playable characters in the game.

Rebellion's Nazi Zombie Franchise is based on the heavily sought Sniper Elite series. The Zombie Army Trilogy brings the first 2 titles of the series together with a previously unreleased version. The game's story is based on a demonic Adolf Hitler who unleashes zombies in a last ditch effort to win the war.

As with the classic Sniper Elite series, the game makes a point of using long range weapons, especially sniper rifles; but also features more traditional weapons such as SMG's, hand guns, etc.

This isn't the only benchmark I've seen that shows AMD cards beating Nvidia cards when using DirectX 12. I think I know why. Nvidia cards depend a lot on proprietary Nvidia technology like Gameworks, which impacts performance on non-Nvidia hardware. We've seen that with Batman Arkham Knight. AMD never really went that route. Yes they had TressFX for realistic hair simulation in Tomb Raider. AMD cards are also better at OpenCL than Nvidia cards which are designed to favor CUDA. This may be why AMD cards benefit more. All that extra architectural customization in Nvidia cards for their own shader technology degrades their DX12 performance.
AMD staff seen dancing in the street Microsoft's move to DirectX12 might have helped AMD rather than Nvidia. The Ashes of the Singularity was released...

Looks like Bashar Al Assad will kill every last Syrian to save himself. Meanwhile our political circus on capital hill can't seem to agree on what to do, let me mind you close to 5 years and going! While I voted for Obama, I now wish I hadn't. He says a diplomatic solution is the best bet, but what he does not realize is that you cannot negotiate with a sociopath, they do not care.

The point is, our government leaders, especially Obama, have proved themselves incapable of running a society. They should all be fired. What the heck ever happened to "Hope" and "Change", the slogans that Obama rallied us with early on? Yet 2 terms he's been in office, and our country is still in economic free fall, because of a leader who refuses to take action. Not to mention foreign policies like those in Syria that serve to benefit no one.

Meanwhile, while Obama runs his mouth, hundreds of thousands of Syrians are now dead. All of which could have been prevented if we had taken action sooner.
