The Battle for the Iron Pan could very well be the best game of the weekend, although we certainly hope for a resounding victory for the Frogs. After a busy week of exciting showdowns, the fourth week is rather light on the plot. Sleepy weeks like this tend to be filled with quirks – what games are ready to entertain and surprise?

# 7 Texas A&M (-5) against # 16 Arkansas – September 25, 2:30 p.m., CBS

The Razorbacks are looking to defeat the entire Southwestern Conference this season, having previously stepped on Rice and crushed Texas. Now, they will enter the palace of their most famous alumnus with a chance of another renowned Top 10 victory over the Aggies. Meanwhile, TAMU retained that preseason top-10 ranking despite looking terrible in a breakout win at Colorado and two wins against the low-level G5s. Starting Aggie QB Haynes King is expected to be out this week and substitute Zach Calzada was acceptable, if unimpressive, in relief. The A&M defense was outstanding, ranking 3rd in Expected Added Points (EPA) per game, per CFB-Graphs.com. If the Hogs can generate early points on turnovers or special teams, forcing Calzada to beat them, Arkansas will have a strong case. However, I tend to think that this elite defense will slow the down enough. [name redacted] offensive and allow the Aggies to secure a victory that feels more comfortable on the scoreboard than it did on the field.

My choice : Texas A&M win (-195); Texas A&M Hedges (-5); Total less than 47.5


# 12 our Lady vs # 18 Wisconsin (-6.5) – September 25, 11:00 a.m., FOX

I’m already bored just thinking about this game, but that’s where we are. It is at the same time as TCU-SMU, so easy to avoid. Can the reincarnation of Jack Coan return to kill usurper Graham Mertz? Check out the Big Yawn on Saturday! I continue to have FSU 2014 vibes with this Notre Dame team – barely surviving games they had to win big and everyone knows they are not one of the best teams but if they end up unbeaten , the committee will be obliged to include them in the playoffs. Whoever wins this game will be unduly considered ‘good’ and I don’t think we will have a chance to remove the Irish from the national scene just yet.

My choice : Notre Dame wins (+195); Notre-Dame blankets (+6.5); Total over 46.5


# 25 Kansas St. (+190) to Oklahoma St. (-6) – September 25, 6:00 p.m., ESPN +

Both of these teams have somewhat surprising victories over high-quality G5 teams to enter the conference game without defeat. One of those teams will leave this game with the hope of being a viable candidate to reach the Big 12 Championship game, while the other will likely be knocked out of that consideration.

I imagine it’s a sucker bet – “How can an unbeaten ranked team be a TD underdog for an unranked team !?” Well, they’re on the road and their starting QB is injured, so maybe supporting the Wildcats is a square move. It’s more about whether Spencer Sanders can prove it – he and the Cowboys offense have been lackluster and conceited in three games, barely surviving Boise, Tulsa and FCS Missouri State to open the season, with a average of just 24 points per game on this list. . 24 points might be enough to survive K-State, but I’m counting on Deuce to let loose in Stillwater. Note: it’s disappointing that Disney put this game on ESPN +; Of course, the Hateful 8 doesn’t guarantee big TV audiences, you won’t even get it broadcast on TV.

My choice : K-State wins (+190); K-State blankets (+6); Total over 46


State of San José in western Michigan (-3) – September 25, 1:00 p.m., ESPN +

WMU is coming off their best post-PJ Fleck-era victory, beating Pitt; SJSU just had one of its best seasons in 2020, as West Mountain Champions. It could very well be MWC Champ vs. MAC Champ when we look back on this season. We think of all the great non-conference games of the P5, but it’s also fun to remember those measuring stick games for the G5. This one features a high level G5 QB game, with Kaleb Eleby and Nick Starkel playing at a very high level and are sneaky sleepers to eventually be drafted into the NFL. I think the Spartan defense makes the difference and forces Eleby to his first INTs of the season and leaves Kalamazoo with the W.

My choice : San José State wins (+125); The State of San José covers (+3); Total less than 63.5


  • Tennessee at # 11 Florida (-20) – Maybe it’s because this game mattered when I was a kid (yes I’m very old), but I have a feeling the Flights go into the swamp and look better than the Alabama la last week, which makes this game a lot scarier for the Gators than it should be.
  • # 9 Clemson (-10) to NC state – Is this the game where Clemson finally lights the rockets to show off all that potential, or do the Tigers pointlessly pass another outclassed opponent, or does Raleigh’s road environment lead to a 2sd loss and probable elimination from the playoffs?
  • LSU (-2.5) to Mississippi StateLeach against Orgeron. These teams have already disappointed this season, which will plunge the most into despair? An LSU loss here could really make Tigers fans revolt against Orgeron, despite having one of the best seasons of all time just two years ago.
  • UTSA in Memphis (-3) – Super fun offenses with excellent sneaky talent. Both teams are undefeated, including a P5 victory. The winner of this game must be ranked.
  • Texan technology in Texas (-7.5) – Will the Longhorns look forward to their trip to Fort Worth next week? I’m not sure if we’re ready to put UT on high alert here, but don’t be surprised if Tech is keeping him close and maybe Matt Wells is lowering the heat in his hot seat.
  • West Virginia at # 4 Oklahoma (-17) – Much has been said that Spencer Rattler and the Sooners are vulnerable. I’m not buying it, but the Mountaineers just had a big ranked win and could take advantage of this alleged vulnerability.

Online gambling is the worst for downtime, with only one culprit http://www.staticgamer.com/online-gambling-is-the-worst-for-downtime-with-only-one-culprit/ Wed, 22 Sep 2021 10:05:55 +0000 http://www.staticgamer.com/online-gambling-is-the-worst-for-downtime-with-only-one-culprit/ Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam are serial offenders, according to a new report.

Gaming services have suffered more downtime than any other type of online industry in the past 12 months – and new research has uprooted the worst offender from Sony’s PlayStation Network, Microsoft’s Xbox Live and Steam by Valve.

A new study from ToolTester analyzed the most popular internet services in the US and UK to find out which of them had the most outages over the past 12 months.

Thanks to ToolTester’s rollout of DownDetector, the organization found that there was a total average of 193 times that PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, or Steam crashed, more than social media and streaming services combined over the course of the same period.

In the US, gamers were forced to endure outages 70 times, while UK gamers saw even worse, suffering an average of 123 issues.

The big loser in the battle for online performance was Steam, which ToolTester said had experienced no less than 99 major outages in the past 12 months. The main problems included the inability for users to access the website itself (46%) and problems signing in to their accounts (37%).

DownDetector has shown that the biggest problem for Steam came when it was released Cyberpunk 2077 December 10, 2020. The flood to buy the game – which, in hindsight, is quite funny, even though I loved it (for all its flaws) – crashed the Steam site. On that day alone, over 29,000 issues were reported to DownDetector in the United States alone.

Moving on to the inevitable and never-ending scramble in the so-called console wars, the most avid Sony fans can rejoice in yet another perceived victory over the competition from Microsoft: Over the past year, Xbox Live has enjoyed more game crashes than PlayStation Network, 63-49.

The study found that 65% of Xbox complaints registered with DownDetector reported that users were getting kicked from games and could not connect to the network.

I can personally vouch for many Xbox connectivity issues over the past year, once even banned from playing Halo 5: Guardians for 24 hours after Xbox Live disconnected me from two successive games. Granted, this was the tonic I needed to help me heal my weird addiction to a game that, six years after its release, remains incredibly compelling, despite one of the most abusive player bases.

As for the worst online service of all, Discord recorded the most DownDectector issues. Other big hitters facing downtime include Instagram, YouTube, and Microsoft Teams: Zoom, though its user interface was designed by MC Escher.

Highlighting the most relevant stories, this list is not inherently and completely objective, and will not contain all of this week’s news. Rather, this is for gaming fans who want a quick look at the most important / impactful stories that have happened over the past week in games.

In this week’s gaming news summary, a list of game titles was pulled from GeForce Now, but it’s hard to believe that part of the leak is true. THQ Nordic’s showcase brought several new game announcements, including a new Sponge Bob SquarePants Game. Toby Fox surprisingly announced Deltarunenext chapter in an anniversary stream for Subtitle. All Nintendo Switch consoles get a surprising feature update that has been in high demand since the system was released. Some AAA game releases have been delayed; one per month, the next until 2021.

Nvidia GeForce Now ‘Leak’ lists multiple announced / unannounced games

nvidia-geforce-now-platforms

A recent datamine from the GeForce Now service appears to have yielded a massive list of leaked games potentially coming to GeForce Now. Nvidia has since responded to inquiries about the leak, saying the listing is real and many titles are “speculative,” likely intended for Nvidia’s own internal testing. No internal developer version or compromising information has been datamined, but the list of games on this so-called real list is the most interesting part of this news.

The list of games on the Nvidia GeForce Now leak is fascinating, although every title on this list is “neither confirmation nor announcement of any game”, currently. Among the leaks were God of War on PC via Steam, Kingdom Hearts 4, classic Grand Theft Auto remasters, Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 9 Remake, among many more games leaked from the full list.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake announced, other Big THQ announcements

THQ Nordic held its big game showcase last Friday, announcing several games from the publisher’s biggest franchises, such as Destroy all humans and MX vs MTB. Perhaps the biggest announcement was the revelation of SpongeBob: the cosmic shake, the first real sequel to Spongebob series of platforms after Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated released last year, and even longer for the series as a whole.

Beyond The Cosmic Tremor, THQ Nordic also announced another Destroy all humans! remaster for the second game, Destroy All Humans 2 – Reprobated. Beyond that, a few cult series will receive sequels in the near future: Outcast 2, Jagged Alliance 3, and Superpower 3. Besides, Elex 2 is a sequel to Piranha Bytes’ 2017 sci-fi action RPG. Finally, another GPRC from Logic Artists is on the way, titled Expeditions: Rome.

Deltarune Chapter 2 Surprise abandoned for Undertale’s sixth anniversary

In a live celebration of the sixth anniversary of Subtitle, Toby Fox surprisingly announced the release date of Deltarune Chapter 2, just two days after the livestream. Another free chapter, DeltaruneThe second chapter of is available now on PC, starting September 17th. Players can start directly from Chapter 2 because Deltarune doesn’t require previous save data, as long as players are aware of what’s going on in Chapter One, originally released in 2018.

While the previous chapter has also been released on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch systems, no release date for DeltaruneChapter 2 has been announced for these systems at this time. Regarding future chapters, Toby Fox confirmed that future chapters (Chapters 3, 4 and 5, in particular) will not be free, unlike the first two chapters of Deltarune.

Notable for creating many iconic examples of game covers in the ’90s, McGinty is best known for his covers on several Western versions of Street fighter 2 on SNES, several Streets of rage starters, as well as Chameleon Child.

Nintendo Switch update adds Bluetooth audio functionality

A much-requested feature for the Nintendo Switch was finally added this week, after many assumed it would have to wait for another hardware overhaul or major change. All Nintendo Switch consoles are now able to pair Bluetooth audio devices, thanks to the 13.0.0 update, without using any external or third-party hardware. The only major downside is that the Bluetooth audio connection limits the number of wireless controllers connected to two at a time, instead of the usual 8 (or four Joy-Con pairs).

Dying Light 2 and Battlefield 2042 delayed

ANN ARBOR, MI – A week-long Esports event hosted by Washtenaw Community College will raise funds to purchase play devices for patients at CS Mott Children’s Hospital.

The WCC students behind the #StreamForMott fundraiser will air a video game contest October 3-9 to attract donations for the devices.

The tournament will feature Esports players from across the country playing “Rocket League”, a game where flying cars attempt to score goals in football. These players will encourage their several thousand followers to donate, officials said.

The initiative is a partnership between WCC, CS Mott Children’s Hospital and MissionControl.gg play station. The proceeds will be used to purchase new Starlight Nintendo Switch consoles, each priced at $ 5,000, for the enjoyment of Mott’s patients and families, officials said.

A full stream schedule will be posted on Wolfpack Esports Week website #StreamforMott. Anyone can follow the tournament on the Discord app on the #StreamForMott string.

“I am so proud of our students and the WCC team for their big ideas and even bigger hearts,” WCC President Rose Bellanca said in a statement. “They worked hard to make our very first Esport fundraiser a success to help lift the spirits of children and families at Mott Hospital.”

One of those students is Andrew Gabanyicz, who is also a specialist in Mott patient technology. He bonded with 6-year-old Will Clayton during weekly chemotherapy treatments for brain cancer, officials said.

Gabanyicz playing video games with Clayton was “therapeutic” and a “miracle,” said Molly, Clayton’s mother.

“We were asking this little guy to do this terrifying thing,” Molly Clayton said. “It was extremely traumatic for him and for me. I never thought, in my wildest dreams, that I would be grateful for video games. But when kids go through the worst thing possible, you can imagine you do whatever it takes to get them through this. “

Gabanyicz is in his second year as a prep student for the WCC health program. His video game experience with Clayton inspired him to pursue a career in recreational therapy, he said.

Gabanyicz and three other members of Mott’s patient technology team run the video game therapy program.

“That’s us with 350 kids in the hospital,” said Connor Rivera, patient technology project manager. “We offer therapeutic and recreational play interventions for socialization and fun. We’ll be there and the next thing you know, kids are playing Mario Kart with their doctor or phlebotomist. I am absolutely amazed by it all.

The WCC offers an Esports Industry Business Course, an Esports Internship Scholarship valued at $ 3,380 per semester, and an Esports Intramural Program that hosts monthly tournaments. Additionally, the college offers an Associate’s Degree in 3D Animation Arts in Applied Sciences and a Certificate in 3D Animation.

For the tournament, all player registrations, as well as one-off donations and sponsorships, can be completed through the Wolfpack Esports Week website #StreamforMott.

Prizes will be announced throughout the week and given to participants.

Parents Praise Chinese Rules for “Unhealthy” Children’s Play | Economic news http://www.staticgamer.com/parents-praise-chinese-rules-for-unhealthy-childrens-play-economic-news/ Mon, 20 Sep 2021 03:51:00 +0000 http://www.staticgamer.com/parents-praise-chinese-rules-for-unhealthy-childrens-play-economic-news/ By ZEN SOO, AP Technology Writer Li Zhanguo’s two children, aged eight and four, don’t have their own smartphones, but like millions of other Chinese children, they are familiar with online games. “If my kids get their hands on our cell phones or an iPad, and if we don’t watch their screen time closely, they […]]]>

By ZEN SOO, AP Technology Writer

Li Zhanguo’s two children, aged eight and four, don’t have their own smartphones, but like millions of other Chinese children, they are familiar with online games.

“If my kids get their hands on our cell phones or an iPad, and if we don’t watch their screen time closely, they can play online games for three to four hours each time,” he said. -he declares.

Like many other parents, Li is happy with the new restrictions on online gaming companies that went into effect earlier this month. They limit kids to just three hours a week of online play time – one hour between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday most weeks.

Political cartoons about world leaders

Political cartoons

The restrictions are a tightening of rules set in 2019 that banned children from playing at night and limited them to 90 minutes of play time most days of the week.

The 90-minute restrictions, however, have not allayed authorities’ concerns about online gambling addiction.

Experts say it is not clear whether such policies can help prevent online gaming addiction, as children may simply be engrossed in social media. Ultimately, it’s up to parents to maintain good habits and set limits on screen time.

The new rules are part of a campaign to prevent children from spending too much time in entertainment that Communist authorities consider unhealthy. It also includes what officials call the “irrational fan culture” of worshiping celebrities.

The restrictions reflect growing concern over gambling addiction among children. State media called online games “spiritual opium”, alluding to times past when drug addiction was rampant in China.

“Adolescents are the future of the motherland, and the protection of the physical and mental health of minors is linked to the vital interests of the masses and the training of newcomers in the era of national renewal,” the Administration said. from the press and publications in a statement released along with the new rules, alluding to a campaign by Chinese President Xi Jinping to cultivate a healthier society for a more powerful China.

Government reports estimated in 2018 that one in 10 Chinese minors were addicted to the internet. Centers have sprung up to diagnose and treat these problems in children.

Much of the responsibility for ensuring children play only three hours a day rests with Chinese game companies like NetEase and Tencent, whose hugely popular mobile game Honor of Kings is played by tens of millions of people across the country. the country.

Companies like Tencent have implemented real name registration systems to prevent young users from exceeding their game time limits, and have incorporated facial recognition checks that require users to verify their identity.

Companies say they can limit access to underage users using real name registrations. In some cases, sporadic checks will also be performed during the game with the use of facial recognition, and users will be kicked out of the game if they fail those checks, they say.

Regulators have ordered game companies to enforce the new regulations and tighten the scrutiny of their games to ensure they don’t include harmful content such as violence.

Chinese regulators have also set up a platform that allows the public to report game companies they believe are violating restrictions on online play hours for children. It allows Chinese ID card holders to report violations and provide evidence, effectively giving the public the power to vet game companies like Tencent and NetEase.

It is not known what penalties companies can incur if they do not strictly enforce the regulations.

Even if such general policies are enforced, it is also unclear whether they can prevent online addiction, given that gaming companies design their products to make gamers stay online and come back for more, said Barry Ip, Senior Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire who has researched gambling and addiction.

And kids can just switch to short videos and other apps if they’re forced to stop playing games.

“There are many forms of digital platforms that could potentially grab a youngster’s attention just as well as games,” Ip said. “It’s just as easy for a youngster to spend four hours on TikTok in the evening rather than playing games if their time is not being controlled.”

Short video apps such as Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, are extremely popular in China and are not subject to the same restrictions as games, although they do have “youth mode” features that allow parents to limit this. that the children watch and for how long.

It is the responsibility of parents to apply this mode on their children’s devices.

Tao Ran, director of the Beijing Adolescent Psychological Development Base, which specializes in treating internet addiction, expects about 20% of children to find workarounds.

“Some minors are too smart, if you have a system in place to prevent them from gambling, they will try to beat the system by borrowing accounts from their older parents and find a way to bypass facial recognition,” Tao said.

The new rules, he said, are a “last resort”.

Online gaming is just one of the many potential distractions, said Liu Yanbin, mother of a 9-year-old girl in Shanghai.

“Many parents attribute their children’s levels of suffering to gambling, but I don’t agree with that sentiment,” said Liu Yanbin. “As long as the kids don’t want to study, they’ll find a way to play. Games might be limited now, but there are still short videos, social media, and even TV series. “

Instead of relying on government intervention, parents need to take responsibility for limiting the time spent on games, social media or the internet, experts say.

“Emphasis must be placed on prevention, for example by informing parents about how games work, so that they are better able to regulate the involvement of their children,” said Joël Billieux, professor of psychology at the University of Lausanne.

Li, a father of two young children, said he was planning to organize piano lessons for his daughter because she showed interest in learning the instrument.

“Sometimes because of work, parents may not have time to pay attention to their children and that is why many children turn to games to spend time,” he said. “Parents should be prepared to help children cultivate hobbies and interests so that they can develop in a healthy way. “

In a recent TikTok video posted to Twitter a few days ago by Fifty Shades of Whey, we can see a 12 year old boy playing what appears to be Call of Duty: Warzone. If you listen to the video you can hear the boy talking to someone who clearly expresses homophobic and transphobic views, but this boy doesn’t care.

The video begins part of the boy’s conversation with the online gamer, in which the boy asks, “So you don’t support LGBTQ? The boy goes on to explain that LGBTQ + is not just gay and not all trans people are gay, implying that the person on the other end of the conversation repeatedly attacked gay people. Despite the boy’s efforts to educate, the player on the other end of the conversation was clearly forgetting his efforts. However, he doesn’t give up and continues to argue, specifically defending trans people by saying, “It’s their decision, what’s the problem with that” in reference to whether a person identifies as a man or a woman. wife.

Considering that just recently a new study was published which proves that harassment in online games is getting worse instead of better, it is heartwarming to see someone from the younger generation defending the LGBTQ + community so emphatically. . This boy is a symbol of hope that understanding and equality may be on the rise in the years to come.

Anti-Aliasing, or DLAA. It’s like DLSS (which The Elder Scrolls Online also gets), but instead of running at a lower resolution to get a frame rate boost while using AI to scale everything so that it still looks brilliant, DLAA runs at native resolution while using that same deep learning for additional edge smoothing.

“It’s the same kind of concept,” Lambert said of 51 minutes in the livestream. “You won’t get any performance improvement, but what you will get is absolutely amazing anti-aliasing.” If you want to try DLAA, it will arrive on the public test server, after which it will become an option alongside DLSS whenever Update 32 goes live. A decent Nvidia GPU will of course be necessary. “You need the RTX 2000 or RTX 3000 series cards to take advantage of it,” Lambert said.

CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) – “The games are on again and we look forward to a good night,” said Illini fan Jim Nelson.

It was a big night for football in central Illinois. Football fans flocked to high school and college football games tonight.

Hundreds of fans were gearing up for the Illini soccer game, which usually takes place on a Saturday, but high school soccer fans were still excited for their Friday night lights.

“Either works because we’re all fans of pretty much the same team,” said Unity High School student Gary Winthorpe.

This is because the fans had to make the decision to go to the Illini football game or watch high school football.

“It’s a great night tonight. It’s a little weird being on a Friday night because usually we go to a high school football game and there are a lot of people here today cheering on Illini, ”said Chad Fincham, fan of Illini.

The colors orange and blue were everywhere in Champaign-Urbana this Friday evening.

“I’ve had two daughters going here and haven’t missed a game in probably five-six years, so yeah, I wouldn’t miss it,” said Nelson.

Hundreds of people were rushing all day for the University of Illinois soccer game, which usually takes place on a Saturday, so Illini fans had to choose between their favorite teams.

“Usually Monticello, Unity, goes to games like that. Usually go on Friday night, high school games, ”Fincham said.

“As long as it’s not every Friday we enjoy high school games, but it’s beautiful this time of year so it’s a great change to have it on a Friday night,” said Nelson.

For high school kids, who are also fans of Illini, they love going to U of I football matches, but they chose to support their classmates.

“It will definitely affect the crowd with how many people will be here because they want to watch the Illinois football game. You kind of had to choose this time around, unlike normal,” said Korben Ray, student at Unity High School.
