Check Out These Cool New Accessories Announced For Xbox Series X And xCloud

The next generation of Xbox is already calling for the next generation of third-party peripherals.

Yesterday, French video game publisher and high-end accessory manufacturer Nacon announced a suite of new gadgets that will help Microsoft fans usher in the Xbox Series X and xCloud eras, starting sometime in 2021. This is rather newsworthy, because up until this point, Nacon has only released its pro-grade controllers in Europe, most notably the Revolution Pro series for PS4.

First up is the Revolution X, a fully decked-out and customizable gamepad aimed at the growing competitive gaming market. It’s got everything you’d expect from similar offerings from other companies like SCUF Gaming or ASTRO, with adjustable weight, programmable profiles, a fancy carrying case, convenient back triggers and swappable thumbsticks.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon Is An Absolute Gift (Xbox Series X Preview)

We’ve closed the book on our beloved protagonist in Kazuma Kiryu. Through seven mainline games, we grew to care about a man who fought for the people he loved most and tried to do the right thing no matter his circumstances–and also did his best to resolve some of the most ridiculous situations of everyday people. As we enter Yakuza: Like A Dragon, we begin anew in the series with fresh faces and revamped gameplay mechanics. And after putting a few hours into it on Xbox Series X, Like A Dragon hit me with everything I love most about the series while standing strong as its own spirited game.

Every time I talk about the Yakuza games, I also point to its perfect blend of outlandish humor and captivating melodrama–consistently hitting the right notes at the right moments. It has always been outward in its expression of modern Japanese culture

An empty TD Garden after a Celtics game

John Hollinger, former writer-turned NBA executive with the Memphis Grizzlies-turned writer again has an interesting look at the timeframe for the offseason and upcoming season. There is, of course, the matter of getting the league’s finances in order, which will include new collectively bargained salary cap numbers announced sometime early next month

It also includes creating a schedule for next season. With a regular season bubble likely off the table, the league is going to look into games in home arenas. Whether that includes fans is still to be determined, but the NBA is determined to get the full 82 games played in an effort to recoup COVID-19 losses. They

Their stories are told through recreations and by people familiar with each

How Food Series ‘Family Style’ Completed a Second Season Mid-Pandemic

“Family Style” was midway through filming its second season when the coronavirus pandemic shut down both its featured subject — restaurants — and production. With several of the planned eight episodes of the Asian-centered food show half done and some not even filmed, producers from the Stage 13 and YOMYOMF joint production had to pivot amidst a time of uncertainty. Executive producer Philip Chung remembers exactly when they made the decision to shut production down in early March. “I remember everyone on the crew all of a sudden getting the alert that Tom Hanks got coronavirus,” he told TheWrap. “That was the moment when it really home for a lot of people on the crew. We knew COVID was an issue; the NBA the night before announced they were canceling their season.” “Obviously, we’re shooting an Asian food show and that was already an issue with some of the racism

Lenovo and Ava DuVernay unveil VR film series on empowering women

“Storytelling is an exchange of information; it’s also an exchange of emotions,” Ava Duvernay said. She was speaking at the virtual launch event for New Realities, a project in collaboration with Lenovo and the UN’s Girl Up leadership development initiative. The project features the stories of 10 young women around the world using technology to make a difference or pursue their dreams, and are all told in 360-degree videos that you can watch for free on Lenovo’s site today. You won’t need a VR headset to experience the 6- to 10-minute shorts — the YouTube player supports desktop and mobile viewing too.

“It’s an exchange that allows for understanding,” DuVernay added. “I think that in order to create global change, in order to move our societies to more positive places, we have to understand that we’re more alike than we’ve been told.”

The series looks at the stories of
