Klonoa: Empire of Dreams

It’s hard to believe that a growing number of gamers are coming to age without the opportunity to play a Klonoa game. We are becoming grittier and grittier in our gaming aesthetics and kids are growing up with the urge to violently blow off another person’s head, meaning that Klonoa’s cute design and whimsical mechanics of inflating goofy enemies are no longer appealing to the children, or anyone with a soul, like it used to be. His most recent game was a remake on the Wii, but the poor sales all but killed his return to the video game scene. The massive backlash against his potentially awful redesign indicates he has a very vocal fanbase, myself among them, but sadly, that number is also very small. It is very likely that we will never see a new Klonoa game ever again. A very sad situation indeed. Despite this, Bandai Namco has done a decent job of keeping his legacy and games alive through re-releasing his classic games on today’s digital scene, appealing to the adults who played his games during their youth and hopefully a new audience of their children...Read the rest of this posting at windows8newsinfo forum.

DirectX 12 Might Not be a Game Changer PDF Print E-mail

DirectX 12

Microsoft’s Xbox One console is, in most cases, ranking below Sony’s PlayStation 4 ever since both the consoles were released. One of the biggest troubles Microsoft is in right now with the Xbox One is called “resolution-gate”. It is a kind of a scandal involving both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with Sony’s Console being at a safer side. With video game resolutions being so important in the next-gen gaming, it is critical for both next-gen consoles to run video games at fully optimized 1080p resolution. Unfortunately, Microsoft’s console is unable to do that in most cases. A significant number of released and upcoming confirmed next-gen games run at a fairly lower resolution on the Xbox One than on the PlayStation 4, and most of the blame goes to the former’s hardware capabilities, which are slightly less than the latter’s offerings. Trying to set things right, Microsoft is boasting extreme DirectX 12 support for Xbox One. Ample number of analysts and developer think that DirectX 12 will bridge the performance gap between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but for most, this statement doesn’t stand true...Turn to windows8newsinfo forum for more.

NVIDIA Finally Launches The GeForce GTX Titan Z

The launch of the GeForce GTX Titan Z has been quite controversial since the card had to face several delays since its announcement back in March. Aside from the launch, the price and performance factor did not proved well as compared to the Radeon R9 295X2 which offers similar gaming performance at a much lower cost of 1499.99 US. The GeForce GTX Titan Z is manufactured with two GK110-350-B1 chips under its hood that pack 7.1 billion transistors each. The GeForce GTX Titan Z replaces the GeForce GTX 690 boasting dual-GK110 cores compared to dual-GK104 cores on its predecessor. The GeForce GTX Titan Z will feature two GK110 cores with 5760 Cuda Cores, 448 TMUs and 96 ROPs. The card features a 384-bit x 2 bus which will run across a massive 12 GB VRAM. This is an impressive feature giving developers and games an unprecedented amount of VRAM for use. The memory is clocked at 7 GHz effective clock speed...More intensive details including benchmarks and images are posted at windows8newsinfo forum.

Iranian cyber espionage

In an unprecedented, three-year cyber espionage campaign, Iranian hackers created false social networking accounts and a bogus news website to spy on military and political leaders in the United States, Israel and other countries, a cyber intelligence firm said on Thursday. ISight Partners, which uncovered the operation, said the targets include a four-star U.S. Navy admiral, U.S. lawmakers and ambassadors, and personnel from Afghanistan, Britain, Iraq, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Syria. The firm declined to identify victims and said it could not say what data had been stolen by the hackers, who were seeking credentials to access government and corporate networks, as well as intelligence on weapons systems and diplomatic negotiations. "If it's been going on for so long, clearly they have had success," iSight Executive Vice President Tiffany Jones told Reuters. The privately held company is based in Dallas, Texas and provides intelligence on cyber threats...There is more posted on our forum.



Microsoft Project Ripple PDF Print E-mail

Project Ripple

Here's something we didn't expect: Microsoft is developing a projector-based infotainment system that you manipulate with your feet. Really. We found Microsoft's Project Ripple at the Augmented World Expo, but it seemed better suited to the local mall. The company admits it's similar, but told me that what we see in public today isn't living up to its potential. Project Ripple just might. There's truth in those words: most of the mall projector games we see consist of one "screen," coming from above -- but Ripple ads a second projector in front of the user's eyes. This second display is controlled by Kinect-translated hand gestures. This makes the platform more versatile, Microsoft tells us, it can be used to deliver information, create interactive ads or could be used to give presentations at special events. Ultimately, Redmond is leaving the utility up to the users.Project Ripple is a going to be a free, open-source platform -- not a product...We have a video clip posted on our forum that is a must see.


Windows 9 is in Alpha! Maybe… PDF Print E-mail

Lately–for me at least–Windows operating systems have been hit and miss. The recently diseased Windows XP? Solid gold. Windows Vista? Pile of unspeakable horrors. Windows 7? Beautiful, functional, easy to use, and open to tech-savvy problem solvers. Windows 8? Optimized for touchscreens, but shoe-horned into non-touchscreen systems. Even my gaming rig, just recently built, has Windows 7 on it because latest doesn’t always mean greatest, but since Microsoft has been pretty predictable with their OS quality, it stand to reason that Windows 9, the successor to Windows 8, will be a keeper. However, no official details have been announced lately. Some would say it’s been quiet. Maybe even a little too quiet. Well, the scream to break this tense silence has been unleashed, albeit more of a whisper than anything. Keep in mind that this is all just rumors and hearsay, but it’s possible that the new OS is in early stages of development…

Google loses 'right to be forgotten' fight

Europe's highest court has ruled that search engines can be ordered to remove links to publicly available news items from their search results. The decision by the European Union Court of Justice (ECJ) has dealt a blow to Google in Europe. The company had, through its Spanish operation Google Spain, appealed an order by the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) that stipulated that the company had to remove links to two pages published in 1998 by Spanish newspaper La Vanguadia. The order followed a complaint by a Spanish national to the AEPD in 2010, after he found that searches for his name made through Google returned links to the two pages, which contained details about a real-estate auction that was held to settle social security debts. Essentially, the complainant believed the links highlighted details about his history that were no longer relevant. While the man's request that the newspaper remove the two pages in question was knocked back, the AEPD did order Google to remove the links from its search results — a decision Google then appealed against...Right to be Forgotten complete coverage can be found on our forum.

Microsoft announces next IE

Microsoft today announced it is developing at least four new features for the next release of Internet Explorer: Web Audio API, Media Capture and Streams, ES6 Promises, and HTTP/2. The company says this is not an exhaustive list of what to expect in the next version, but merely what it is currently confident that it will be able to deliver. Microsoft further says these features form a part of its “commitment to delivering interoperable implementations for the latest features on the modern Web.” The company also mentions that “several other features” are very important, it is working on a plan to support them, and that developers can expect “more updates in the future.” At the same time, Microsoft also took the opportunity today to share its vision for the IE platform going forward: “The web should just work for everyone – users, developers and businesses.” As such, the company emphasized it will continue to push more IE users onto the latest version of the browser, invest in security features that provide broad mitigations to potential vulnerabilities...More on this upcoming release can be found at windows8newsinfo forum.
