To find out a bit more about how the game came about, and how developer Koei Tecmo partnered with the Zelda team at Nintendo, I was able to ask a few questions of Age of Calamity producer Yosuke Hayashi and director Ryouta Matsushita. Hereâs what they had to say…
At 17 years old, Call of Duty is not quite Americaâs longest war, but itâs close. When I went into the single-player story mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War,I knew what to expect: a pleasing shooting gallery with familiar narrative twists (thereâs always a nuke about to go off) and re-shuffled scenery (this time the walls are plastered in vintage Doritos ads). But the real twist is that I left feeling frustrated about the game it could have been.
Black Ops Cold War is the kernel of a thrilling and intimate spy story thatâs tragically strapped on the front of a runaway train. The game begins in a neon-drenched bar in Amsterdam on New Yearâs Eve 1980, where your CIA partner beckons you to quickly follow him away from the party….
There is a famous quote by Jim Henson: âIf you canât beat them. Join themâ.
Itâs possible to write code for years without deliberately using delegates. I say âdeliberatelyâ because we may have used them without realizing it. Knowing what these types represent makes reading code easier. Knowing how to use them adds some useful tools to our developer toolbox. So instead of ignoring them, why not learn them. In this post, I will show you how you can get started with delegates and their use cases, which will encourage you to use them more in your code.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is getting one of its biggest updates for the US today, adding nearly 50 points of interest. The White House, Fort Knox, Hoover Dam, and the Las Vegas Strip are among many areas across the US that are getting updated with high-resolution points of interest.
A trailer for the update shows just how detailed some of these updated areas are. The Las Vegas Strip now has a night mode, where the entire strip lights up and it looks incredible from the virtual sky above. The nearby Grand Canyon looks like it will be worth touring inside Microsoft Flight Simulator, too. Kennedy Space Center in Florida is also part of the update and looks incredibly intricate.

In a recent episode of The Mandalorian, tiny puppet baby Yoda ate a blue cookie. I donât watch The Mandalorian, but I am online enough to have seen photos of the tiny puppet baby Yoda eating blue macarons. You can now buy these macarons, called âNevarro Nummiesâ from Williams Sonoma. Haha cool! I love macarons hell yeah. Except that they cost $49.95 for a dozen.
io9kindly did the math for me because I cannot add or divide, and it estimates them to be about $4.17 per cookie. To which I say, youâre out of your goddamn mind. You want 50 bucks for 12 cookies that look like prop food? Eyeball these Hostess rejects and tell me you donât have concerns:
These cookies look like theyâve had their souls sucked out by a cartoon…

Microsoftâs Xbox Series S wasnât exactly a well kept secret, but the companyâs decision to create a second next-gen Xbox to go up against the PS5 wasnât an easy one. Ultimately, Microsoftâs decision to build two next-gen consoles came down to the companyâs desire to reach a broader audience than Sony was targeting.
The Xbox Series S lacks the raw horsepower found in the larger Xbox Series X or the PS5. Thatâs left many wondering why Microsoft created two very different next-gen Xbox consoles, while Sony has focused on a single powerful PS5. Some Microsoft employees were even questioning the decision, and the companyâs Xbox chief has revealed to The Verge that âthe best argument against doing [two next-gen consoles] was Sony.â
