Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro Will Reunite at DICE for a 'Conversation'

This month at the DICE Summit, Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro will be in the same space once again to have a "conversation". Or at least that's what DICE is calling it. On their website they have it described like this:
... These master storytellers will offer insight into their creative vision and the driving forces behind their artistic pursuits [...] this conversation will revisit some of their fondest memories from their own individual careers as well as some of the pivotal moments from each other’s work that remain a constant source of inspiration.
That description has me pretty excited for what they'll end up talking about. And honestly I'm more interested in what Guillermo Del Toro has to say because I always forget that he's heavily influenced by Kojima's work in video games. It'll be interesting to see what a cinematic visionary like Del Toro has to say about video games.
And we can assume that more conversations between the both of them will happen during the DICE Summit. And I think that has all of us who played PT excited for whatever they might come up with next. Anyone who's played PT or watched Let's Plays of it can agree that it's probably the creepiest thing that's ever existed in video games thus far (or hasn't if you work for Konami). So the two of them together again even if it's just to have a conversation and give some speeches I think something more will end up coming of this.
I believe that DICE said somewhere that they'll be streaming the whole conference and if that's the case I'll probably end up making another card about it once I'm sure that it's a thing that's happening. But just in case you want to stay in the know on your own, the DICE Summit is this month from February 16th to the 18th.
@ButterflyBlu right!? right!? it was hard to write this card without it being in all caps and screaming haha
@paulisadroid I TOTALLY WOULD HAVE!!!!!!!

Cloud (Yes, Cloud Strife) is Coming to Super Smash Bros.
I never thought I'd see the day either, Cloud. Many of us gamer-nerds like to fancy Final Fantasy VII as one of the best RPGs we've ever played. Of course we can retroactively say, well it's not that good (or whatever), but at the time our tiny little mashed potato bodies enjoyed every little drop of that beautiful RPG gravy (sorry, I'm kind of hungry). I think one of the conversations I've had multiple times with a bunch of different people (aka friends) is the conversation of Cloud being in Smash. And we all thought it was probably impossible. You know, since Nintendo owns Smash and Cloud is a Sony character and all, I -- along with all of my friends -- assumed that there was no chance that we'd be able to play as him in the game. But somehow, (probably with a bunch of money) Nintendo managed to get Cloud in the game, and boy he looks like a character I'd want to learn and use exclusively (sorry, Mega Man, I still love you). And I'm unsure of what exactly his Final Smash is. It seems like that portion of the trailer has him using materia to summon those classic summons (I can't remember any of their names but I do remember all of them, I know, I'm terrible. Fuck off) but he also seems to be capable of doing Limit Breaks. I tried my best to take a screenshot of one starting up (above) but it might be better if you just watch the trailer over and over again. There still isn't any news on when Cloud will be available and how much he'll cost (since he's DLC and all) but it seems like Nintendo is planning a special Smash Bros. presentation in December so I'd assume we'll be hearing more about this whenever that presentation happens.
The Titans Are Coming in August, Are You Ready?
Two months ago, I wrote about an Attack on Titan game that ended up coming out in Japan a little bit ago looks like it's coming out in North America and Europe in August. Now, if you know me (the robot, former human), then you know that I am extremely excited for this game. I didn't think that it'd ever come out for Western audiences but I'm glad that I was wrong. But can you blame me? I mean, a lot of Japanese games hardly ever make it over to the Americas and/or Europe, an example of this is the Yakuza series (games I really want to get into). A trailer was released today announcing the European release date (and after some research, I found the North American release date, which is just two days later) and I'm extremely excited for it. The trailer isn't anything we haven't seen before but there is one thing that I'm really happy about. It essentially just looks like the Japanese trailer with English subtitles. And one of the things I constantly worry about when they bring these Japanese games to the West, the character usually get horrible English dubs which make me feel queasy. So, I'm really glad that I'll get to play the game in the same way that I watched the show. It also looks like the game covers the first season of the show, so if you haven't watched past that it shouldn't be a problem for you. Or, you can start watching it again now just to catch up. AOT: Wings of Freedom will be released on (almost) every platform on August 26th in Europe and August 28th in North America.
How To Restrict Kids App Access On Android?

Photos on Canvas - Personalized Canvas Prints
The advances in digital photography, as well as the affordability of giclee printing technology has meant that the market place for company's offering to print your photos on canvas is growing at a rapid rate. So how do you choose the right company? Well there are a number of key factors to consider and I will take you through a few of them here. The First is the Quality of Canvas Being Used This sounds obvious but it is very easy to overlook, or more accurately, very easy to be mislead. There are three main canvases being used by printers. Cotton canvas is the best while polyester canvas is a cheaper alternative. The third canvas is a blend between the two and is known as polycotton canvas. The first thing to bear in mind is that if a company offering canvas printing does not mention which type, they are using then you can be pretty sure that it's polyester. Unfortunately, though it's not as easy as looking for the first company who offers cotton as the quality of cotton canvas can vary massively. Ideally you would want to see a sample of any canvas prior to ordering, although we realize that this is not possible when ordering online. The one thing you can check when ordering online is how heavy the canvas is - you want a canvas that is a minimum 340gsm but ideally, for a really top-quality feeling product I recommend 420gsm. The Second Point to Consider is Frame Quality Ensure that any frame is oven dried pine wood to confirm that it doesn't warp. There are also two standard thicknesses when dealing with personalized canvas prints, 18mm and 38mm. 18mm is the cheaper option and tends to feel a lot more brittle when held, while canvas prints produced using 38mm frames look far more solid. The third and probably most important factor to consider is how your image will be treated? When we started on canvas prints it is crucial to prepare the image adequately as, even with the advances in digital photography, most images are not prepared to be blown up to the typically large sizes produced when printing personalized canvas prints. I need to point out at this stage that although it is possible to enhance any image prior to printing, the best prints will still be produced by images that are of high quality to begin with. It can be very difficult to gauge how a company will deal with your image prior to printing so have a read through their website to determine if you believe that they'll edit and enhance your image before printing. If unsure then contact them and ask! You will probably find that the level of attention they afford you when on the phone, will reflect the time and care that they will put into enhancing your image. When deciding where to go for your photos on canvas prints, then by bearing the above three points in mind you won't go far wrong. Your personalized canvas print should be something that provides you with a great deal of enjoyment as well as being something that lasts a lifetime. It is therefore worth taking that little bit of extra time when creating your work of art. Craig is passionate about creating stunning art work from customers own images. He does work for many professional photographers and designers; however, he gets the most enjoyment from printing photos on canvas for the general public. This can offer numerous challenges and he strives to supply the simplest print potential from every and each image.

The Elder Scrolls Games Ranked from Worst to Best
1. The Elder Scrolls: Arena The game that started it all!! The general blueprint of the Elder Scrolls was laid out here, and hasn't changed all that much over the years. Clearly it isn't as advanced as some of the newer games but it laid the foundation for future games. 2. The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall While Daggerfall refined and improved a lot of what made Arena such a good game, the world it was set in was fairly bland, and often times felt quite repetitive. Most of the towns you visit feel exactly the same, and the dungeons get boring once you realize they all follow almost the same layout. 3. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Now this... might annoy some of you. While I think this game is really good, and at certain points great, the combat system is what fails the game the most. Throughout the entire game every character levels with you, and the combat makes it feel like you are doing almost no damage while random villagers would be able to one-shot you. Oh also the main storyline kinda sucks. 2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim This is truly an amazing game. Despite slight narrative issues that make following the main storyline a little confusing, Skyrim is just a stunning open world to just exist in and interact with. Side quests are extremely detailed and almost never feel repetitive. Also dragons are pretty cool. 1. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind This was a pretty obvious #1 for many. Sure there are plenty of little issues to pick at but Morrowind provides an experience so immersive and truly unlike any other entry in the Elder Scrolls Series, or any other RPG. It is more beautiful, interesting, complex and political than any other Elder Scrolls game, making it a pretty easy #1.
