F8 Developer Conference Wrap-Up

Facebook held their 10 year anniversary of the F8 Developer Conference; a gathering of developers from around the world to learn about the new products and updates happening on Facebook. F8 Developer Conference was centered around one theme: Augmented Reality. Creating a community through Augmented/Virtual Reality. Here are the top highlights from the F8 Developer Conference:

  • Mark Zuckerburg addressed the tragedy of the Cleveland serial killer, who used Facebook livestream to publicly murder an innocent elderly man. Mark strives to make Facebook a safe platform, as well as strengthen security.
  • Facebook is rolling out products concentrated on Augmented Reality: realistic 3D objects, Augmented Reality gaming, and camera effects
  • Frame Studio: An artist's tool for 3D art and camera effects
  • AR Studio: A developer's tool for seamless 3D mask effects (seen on snapchat and FB stories)
  • Social VR: Facebook virtual reality community space

A little bit more on Social VR, because this is a huge development during the F8 Conference. Social VR is a virtual reality based space where you can hang out with friends and family, add 3D objects and atmospheres, and interact with your environment using a VR device. Social VR uses SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) to map your location, as well as reading your map location to create an interactive simulation of your space for you and your community. The main purpose of Social VR is bringing people together with the power of virtual reality.

Yup....... Just like Sword Art Online, minus the trap of turning a virtual world into reality (hopefully).

NES Classic Mini Canceled

Sad yet true.... Nintendo canceled the production of the classic NES (Nintendo Entertainment Systen) Mini console. A Nintendo Spokesperson told Eurogamer.net, "We can confirm that we are no longer manufacturing the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System. If production resumes in the future, an update will be posted on the official Nintendo website.

NES Classic Mini consists of 30 Nintendo classic games in an original bite size version of the NES console for $59.99. There is speculation that the cancellation of the NES Classic Mini are due to scalping, hackers, or just meant for a limited time. Again, just speculation. But, if you have $300 or more to spare, the NES Classic Mini is available to purchase from re-sellers on  Amazon and eBay.

I'm so sad that I missed my chance to purchase the NES Classic Mini. When I was a kid, my dad bought the original NES console for bringing home good grades from school. I was absolutely addicted to Super Mario Bros (mainly, it was the only game my dad bought with the console). I wanted to share my gaming traditions with my daughter.

Hopefully, or at least wishful thinking, the Classic NES Mini will come back in time when my daughter brings home good grades from school. If not, then we will still carry on our gamer traditions; or at least create a new one.

What do you think happened? Any information or theories? Share your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks for reading! Be Beautiful & Geeky :)

  

Indivisible Prototype

DISCLAIMER: The following review is based on my personal experiences and opinion. It does not reflect the brand or developers of this game. Thank you.

I learned about Indivisible Prototype from Game Grumps on YouTube, and was instantly intrigued. Seemed liked the type of game I would enjoy. I had to download this game, and try it.

Indivisible Prototype is a brand new RPG game available online, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The Indivisible Prototype team are currently asking for donations to turn this prototype in to a full game on indiegogo.com. To be clear; I was NOT paid or sponsored by the developers and team of Indivisible Prototype to share this information.

I enjoyed this game so much, that I wanted to share this information with you. I genuinely believe they deserve every source of funding to make their dreams come true. I donated and supported this game. I want to see Indivisible happen :)

Indivisible Prototype

SYNOPSIS:

Ajna is a young girl with a martial arts background (trained by her father) who discovers the ruins of Indivisible. During her discovery, she teams up with Zebi, Razmi, and Tungar to battle various creatures in the ruins. Ajna, Zebi, Razmi, and Tungar gain weapons and abilities as the game progress.

PROS: Simple and straight-forward mechanics, helpful hints for beginners, interesting characters and their abilities. Jump mechanics are a bit tricky, but takes some time getting used to the rhythm.

CONS: I did not experience any cons

RECOMMENDATIONS: I would recommend Indivisible Prototype to everyone. This is truly a fun RPG and the team deserve your support.

RATING: 5 out of 5

I enjoyed this game so much! I will definitely turn this game into a series. I truly hope this game becomes fully funded. If you want to support this game and donate, visit indiegogo.com.

Overwatch: Origins Edition

DISCLAIMER: The following review is based on my personal experiences and opinion. It does not reflect the brand or developers of this game. Thank you.

I've looked forward to Overwatch: Origins Edition for months. I've watched all the origin stories of key characters on YouTube, playthroughs, and Livestream battles. I was so excited for overwatch, that I needed to get in on the action. So, my fiance bought a copy of overwatch for me. I spent hours practicing and leveling up my skills.

Under any circumstances, I am not a first-person shooter kind of gamer. I am terrible at first-person shooter or combat. But for Overwatch, I decided to make an exception, and I am glad I did. The graphics are clear, the movements are fluid, and there are plenty of opportunities to level up. I am going to continue to spend more time playing Overwatch. I absolutely enjoyed this game.

Overwatch: Origins Edition

SYNOPSIS:

Overwatch: Origins Edition is a group of heroes who banned together to fight evil and crime. You can play as a team or battle each other in a first-person perspective. Each key character has a specific backstory, to learn more about their history and abilities.

My go-to Overwatch Character is Ana: Ana is a support bounty hunter who has the ability to heal allies with biotic grenades. She is the mother of Pharah.   

PROS: The movements are fluid, the graphics are clear and beautiful, and each key character has interesting abilities.

CONS: Depending on internet connection, it takes a while for the servers to connect you to a game

RECOMMENDATION: I would recommend Overwatch: Origins Edition to everyone. If you are a beginner or casual player, there are levels and opportunities to practice your skills. If you are a professional gamer, there are battle opportunities for you to show off your advanced shooter skills.

RATING: 4.9

I love Overwatch: Origins Edition! It is my new addiction. If you ever want to play, just look for me under Grid_Geek. What do you think about Overwatch? leave your thoughts in the comments section. Thank you for reading. Be Beautiful & Geeky :)
