While Black Widow has remained relevant, she is far from the best character in the game as she was considered two years ago, while Night Nurse has dropped off from relevancy substantially.
While Bender and his team at FoxNext have made efforts to reduce power creep, it has happened and it has affected different characters in different Forward Two characters that proved to be among the most coveted in the early days of the game were Black Widow and Night Nurse.
He's about to step up in a way that players asked for right from the may seem strange to add characters that were so prominently featured in one of the biggest movies ever nearly two years after that movie hit theaters, but FoxNext says the design process for the Black Order is a special case and is not indicative of how long the character design and implementation process normally takes.
As the third year of Marvel Strike Force kicks off, the team is adding VS. Battle, a new mode that allows you to challenge other players to real-time, synced PvP battles.
I spoke with creative director Jason Bender and game director Jonathan Durr to learn more about this new feature, as well as what to expect in the coming year of Marvel Strike Force.
Zaimont describes character attacks the same way one would describe fighting game attacks, with phrases like "neutral attack, down attack, and guard break" peppered into the conversation.
It's a head-spinningly large design space, but Zaimont said it began to make sense after Lab Zero Games released a public demo to support the game's Indiegogo campaign.
Instead of that turn-based system, in Indivisible, players string together combos using an array of 20 different characters, mixing fighting game logic with Final Fantasy's Active Time Battle system.
To understand the design challenges of Indivisible, it helps to understand the game's fundamental conceit--Zaimont describes it as "what I thought Valkyrie Profile was going to be when I looked at this box before I played it."
Zaimont described the game's meter management system as being inspired by the Guilty Gear series, and much like Guilty Gear, the game tries to reward players with an energy bar that builds into super moves based on what skills the player is good at.
Considering you could buy a Switch, a copy of Animal Crossing, a TV, sound system and still have more cash left over than if you’d bought an actual Acronym jacket, that’s a good deal!
An Acronym jacket is an enormous flex, but it’s one that comes at a price, because if you can ever get one new (they sell out quickly whenever released a few times a year on Acronym’s site), they’ll cost you well over $1000.
If you don’t know them by name, or their collaborations with brands like Nike and Stone Island, you might know them by their work in video games: they designed Adam’s jacket in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and featured prominently in Death Stranding’s rainy, apocalyptic wardrobes (including a cameo by Hugh himself).
And few pieces of techwear are as expensive, or as desirable, as Acronym jackets.
While it’s perfectly expected and cool that people are using Animal Crossing’s design tools to create unique and interesting clothes, some players are simply using them to craft recreations of outfits they already own.

Recognized for contributions that have significantly promoted technical progress in their fields, UC Santa Barbara professors B.S. Manjunath and Yuan Xie have been selected to receive the Edward J. McCluskey Technical Achievement Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society.
As much as I appreciate there’s a grammar of gaming to be learnt, and some specific skills associated especially with action games – like managing two thumbsticks for an FPS – the absolute basics of movement I had taken as a given.
Game designers, meanwhile, help out by dressing their menus up in thematic imagery, having player characters tap feet or snooze if we don’t move them, building save mechanics into the game world through computer terminals or stone sofas, and so on.
My dad, for example, whom I have never managed to get to play a game, saw this kind of skill development as a chore – and one with meagre reward at that.
Sure, there were some cute moments in there – he called our character “Moo” and modelled him on his baby brother – but there was a lot of frustration, like when he named our island “Water”, condemning me to an eternity of being asked “What’s a water airport?
Working at home during the UK's Coronavirus lockdown, I saw a great chance to make him collect weeds and sticks while I was in meetings, to take the edge off that early-game grind for me – oh, and to bond with him, I suppose.
The 3D printer community is banding together in a cooperative effort to produce and distribute face shields which are much needed by NHS staff (and others) due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
There is a well-known shortage of such medical shields, of course, and the organisation called 3DCrowd UK aims to address this by asking folks around the UK who own 3D printers to join in with the production of parts for PPE (personal protective equipment).
Volunteers are signing up across the country to help print face shields – if you have a 3D printer, you can sign up yourself by heading here – with delivery and distribution of the equipment being covered by a GoFundMe campaign (which has just exceeded its target goal of £40,000).
The BBC reports that 3D printing volunteers are given instructions on how to produce headbands for the face shields.
However, 3DCrowd UK’s Gen Ashley told the BBC that the shields have been approved in the Czech Republic, where we have already seen 3D printing outfit Prusa design and produce a medical shield (with the firm expecting to eventually be able to make 4,000 of these daily just on its own).
As coronavirus infections continue to spread, doctors and researchers are looking for new tools that can help them with better and faster diagnosis.
Kahun, an Israel-based medtech startup, has released a new COVID-19 tool designed to help doctors make quicker decisions.

Dr. Michal Tzuchman-Katz, one of the co-founders of Kahun, said that the knowledge graph is updated in real-time as more research related to coronavirus becomes available.

Facebook launched a new tool called "Community Help" on Tuesday.Community Help is designed to let people request or offer help to people nearby during the coronavirus pandemic.You can request or offer help with groceries, supplies, or general volunteer work.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
Facebook has built a tool for hooking up those requesting and those offering help during the coronavirus pandemic.As the coronavirus has spread across the globe Facebook has had to race to react to misinformation, price-gouging on essentials like hand sanitizer, and even phoney coronavirus cures.The company launched "Community Help" on Tuesday, describing it as: "a place for people to request or offer help to neighbors, such as volunteering to deliver groceries or donating to a local food pantry or fundraiser.
"Facebook said it is rolling the tool out in the US, the UK, France, Australia, and Canada over the next few days, and is looking to expand to more territories after that.Here's what it looks like:
“This effort allows further enhancement of the F-35’s lethality and survivability by increasing internal weapons capacity by two additional missiles while remaining in very-low-observable stealth configuration.”
“With internal research and development over the last several years, Lockheed Martin has matured design concepts to integrate six air-to-air missiles within the internal weapons bays of the F-35A and F-35C variants,” company spokesman Michael Friedman told Breaking Defense.
The superior missile capacity of a conventional fighter design weighed on the U.S. Air Force’s decision to begin buying upgraded Boeing F-15EXs in parallel with ongoing purchases of F-35s.
Japanese defense minister Taro Kono said the country’s next fighter plane must carry more air-to-air missiles than the current Lockheed Martin F-35 stealth fighter can do.

It would be fair to say that Valve's digital card game, Artifact, failed to make much of an impact following its high-profile launch at the end of 2018.
Designed by Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield, who left Valve last March, Artifact struggled from the off, with players rejecting everything from the game's perceived complexity to balance issues and even its pricing model, which - unlike free-to-play competitors Hearthstone and Gwent - included an upfront cost, alongside payment for additional cards.
Valve said little about Artifact for almost year, but suddenly, earlier this month, it began to tease new activity for the game, saying it would reveal "more news after the launch of Half-Life: Alyx".
Now, with Alyx out the door and basking in the light of rave reviews, Valve has kept its promise, outlining some early changes for what it's calling Artifact to the company, it has been "focussing on gameplay changes first", with the biggest of these seeing Artifact's action zoomed right out so that players can view all three lanes at once.
Perhaps the most significant change revealed so far, though - and one that highlights just how radical Valve intends its overhaul to be - is that Artifact's previous monetisation model will be completely abandoned, and Valve will no longer be selling cards and packs for the game.
FromSoftware is famous for its world design, with Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series featuring some of the most memorable locations in video game history.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice put a greater emphasis on stealth than past FromSoftware games in order to capitalize on this new verticality, but also managed to deliver a brilliant parry-based combat system.
Set in an unforgiving and often frozen world filled with undead creatures, giants, and plenty of fire-breathing dragons, Skyrim is so packed full of memorable lore and quests that it’s almost impossible to see the game in its entirety.
With satisfying combat inspired by the Arkham series and plenty of gear customization options, it’s a can’t-miss open world game.

Set in the gorgeous Los Santos and surrounding metropolitan area, Grand Theft Auto V features everything from bank robberies to a full-scale tennis simulator, and you can do any of them for hours on end.
Weathered steel and juniper siding clad the cross-laminated timber community centre that Lever Architecture has added to the Oregon outpost of The Nature Conservancy.
Lever Architecture has also designed a factory building in Portland with weathering steel and built a tasting room for a winery in Oregon's Yamhill County.
Efforts to improve the energy efficiency of The Nature Conservancy's Oregon office also include introducing solar panels on the roof and a subsurface filtration system that manages stormwater on-site.
Photograph by Lara SwimmerLever Architecture said that sustainability formed a key part of the project, which has achieved a LEED Gold certification – the highest score for a building's energy efficiency In addition to choosing to keep the original office building, CLT was used because it has a lower embodied carbon footprint than concrete or steel, as shown in a recent report by the University of Washington.

I’m excited to announce the first of four Laravel courses being released over the next several months as part of the new PHP with Laravel Techdegree!
The curriculum scoping and sequencing sessions allowed us to improve the focus of new PHP with Laravel Techdegree content by adding four brand-new Laravel courses with matching projects and an MVC workshop.
In the Laravel Basics course, you’ll build a replica of the Treehouse library: The most exciting changes in the new PHP with Laravel Techdegree are the brand-new Laravel projects such as Build a Pet Adoption Website, BYO API and Build a Blog with Laravel.
To empower our students to build the latest and most competitive web applications, we’ve replaced the Slim microframework with Laravel, added three new projects, and created a workshop on MVC, a design pattern for building modern web applications.
Students will gain a solid foundation of PHP but also a basic understanding of the MVC design pattern along with the ability to produce their own Laravel applications—such as REST APIs, and personal blogs with user authentication.
