Valkyria Revolution Review

  • At times, playing Valkyria Revolution is like being dragged face-down through the shattered, jagged remnants of something that was once whole and good.
  • Valkyria Revolution is the fourth installment in Sega’s Valkyria series, but it’s also a clean break of sorts.
  • In general, a lot of what made its predecessors so endearing is absent in Revolution, and what remains doesn’t do the game any favors.
  • About a hundred years before the events of the first Valkyria game (and on the other side of the continent of Europa) a small country named Jutland is preparing for a revolution.
  • Although the Valkyria series is known primarily for its strategy elements, Valkyria Revolution is an action RPG through and through.

Amazon Is Building A Translation Service For Your Sites And Apps

  • Amazon is set to expand its Web Services range of offerings for developers with a new tool to translate their apps and sites into multiple languages, reports CNBC.
  • When it launches, the new service will see Amazon go up against Microsoft and Google, both of which offer translation APIs to enterprise customers.
  • Amazon already uses its own translation tech in-house to offer product documentation in various languages.

The Best Video Games Of 2017 So Far

  • Nintendo’s bright, brisk take on the fighting game has a range of outlandish characters engaging in lighthearted fisticuffs with customisable robotic arms.
  • What we said: Arms is unique, colourful, and accessible, with enough complexity to tempt a competitive scene but not so much to make anyone feel alienated.
  • Game designer David OReilly produced one of the most unusual video game releases of the decade with this exploration of time, space and being, all set to a soundtrack of quotes from philosopher Alan Watts.
  • What we said: Everything takes the strange comfort of the procedurally generated personal to a universal scale, and it is good.
  • The acclaimed gravity manipulating sci-fi title is back with an unexpected yet welcome sequel, following lead character Kat as she swoops and falls through a stylised neon city.

Feast Your Eyes Upon The Galaxy Note 8 In These Leaked Renders

  • Reliable tipster OnLeaks has teamed up with online publication 91Mobiles to release a set of renders and a 360-degree video of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, allegedly showcasing the handset from all angles.
  • Just like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the Galaxy Note 8 sports a near bezel-less design, though it’s slightly thicker to house the S Pen and the refreshed camera, and its frame is more square to help with ergonomics.
  • What’s even more interesting, however, is the arrangement of the dual-camera, LED flash, heart rate monitor and fingerprint reader, which are all positioned next to each other with a protruding piece of glass protecting them.
  • According to 91Mobiles, the Galaxy Note 8 measures in at approximately 162.4 x 74.5 x 8.4mm, with the thickness jumping up to 9.5mm when you factor in the camera bump.
  • As for specifications, leaks and rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 8 will pack a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display (18.5:9 aspect ratio), an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 CPU, 6GB of RAM and a 3,300mAh battery.

Some Beers, Anger At Former Employer, And Root Access Add Up To A Year In Prison

  • The Internet of Things' "security through obscurity" has been proven once again to not be terribly secure thanks to an angry and possibly inebriated ex-employee.
  • Over the next few months, TGBs that Flanagan's employer had installed for a number of municipal water departments "developed problems," the Justice Department's sentencing memo stated.
  • But the TGBs in Kennebec were hit again on March 1 when "an entry was made to the Kennebec TGB by entering the default root password."
  • The original indictment of Flanagan totaled nine counts, including incidents with three other water authorities in Aliquippa and New Kensington, Pennsylvania; and Egg Harbor City, New Jersey.
  • On April 3, 22, 24, and 28, 2014, there were multiple intrusions into one of the Aliquippa WaterAuthority’s TGBs.

  • There are currently 35 international and local digital health businesses on the platform, and the company says it plans to grow this to over 100 by the end of the year.
  • In a call with Your.MD founder and CEO Matteo Berlucchi, I likened the combination of Your.MD’s next-generation search engine combined with the OneStop Health platform to the way Google’s own search engine captures and then monetises intent.

The Things Jobless Engineers Should Do To Get Back Into India’s IT Game

  • Whether you’re fresh out of engineering college or a few years into your career, all the bad news surrounding India’s IT industry is understandably a cause for concern.
  • With visa restrictions mounting abroad, thousands of jobs have been made out of reach for Indian techies.
  • All this means that it’s harder than ever to find that first placement, or even a solid next position.
  • When it comes to finding a first job in these tough times, Tonde suggests it’s important not to be too demanding in terms of salary or company status: Don’t be too quick to reject the smaller companies, for instance.
  • “Engineers think since they are engineers they deserve better…But you have to understand that times have changed.

Paint.NET Developer Planning To Bring App To Windows Store Using Microsoft's Desktop Bridge

  • It feels like a steady drip of newly converted desktop apps have been hitting the Windows Store since the launch of Microsoft's Project Centennial Desktop Bridge, and now another Windows staple may be on the way soon.
  • In response to a user inquiring about the possibility of the app coming to the Windows Store on the Paint.NET forums, app developer Rick Brewster responded, stating:
  • Paint.NET is a simple but handy little image editor that goes a step past Paint in capability, but without overwhelming.
  • For now, if you want to give Paint.NET a go, you can grab the desktop app from its official website.
