NEW PS5 COVERS REVEALED

Playstation 5 covers for ‘Assassins Creed: Valhalla’, ‘Watch Dogs Legion’, ‘Far Cry 6’, ‘Planet Coaster’ and ‘Overcooked: All You Can Eat’ have been revealed.

As you’ll notice, the difference between these and the PS4 covers are the colors of the cover, being white and black instead of blue and white. The cases seem to retain the blue color.

EPIC GAMES GOES TO WAR AGAINST APPLE AND GOOGLE

Efh8qv7WoAMqz1y

In a move that could change the future of mobile gaming, Epic Games beats the drum of war and takes on BOTH Apple and Google.

‘Fortnite’ is one of the biggest things in pop-culture and beyond in these last years BUT going on both giants at once it’s more than a bold move.

The background leading to this is Apple removing Epic’s product from Apple Store, after they [Epic Games] implemented direct payments, thus directly cut off Apple’s of their 30% cut. Those percents are standard for purchases in the app store and it’s in the publishing agreement every developer needs to comply in order to be able to offer its product(s) for the platform.

Things however do not stop there. Just hours later, Epic moved against another tech-giant – Google – whose share is also 30% on all revenue made on Google Store, also legally binding in order to get published for the whole worldwide Android market.

Epic are NOT seeking any monetary compensation, they ARE challenging the monopoly of Apple [and Google], just as seen above. There is more to this story but to keep things simple: they want to change rules and opting for open mobile markets where everyone would have the possibility to:

1) pay less to Google and Apple, maybe offering lower costs to the end-users
2) launch their own store[s] – [Epic] has one already

Mobile gaming has a market share of aprox. 50% in a industry worth $160 billions.

This is fast, simple and read worthy, you may need translation:

[TV] ‘SARCASM 101 BY CHANDLER BING’ [FRIENDS]

EfToRiLUYAYoH-8

‘Friends’ was HUGE, THE BIGGEST PHENOMENON on TV and a lot of it it’s attributed to like… everything?

Nah, joke aside, it was a well produced sitcom following a cast dealing with their everyday life and mixed with a great portion of humor. I mentioned the characters and every single article or post about the show should do so. They are unique to each other and the chemistry inbetween is perfect.

You’ve got [PICTURE ABOVE] Phoebe, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Monica and Joey, all of them LOVED by viewers mostly because of what they are. It was common to have a favorite back then, mine was Joey, without doubt. I mean who could get angry with him? He was like the perfect friend.

‘Friends’ aired between 1994 to 2004 and rewatching it today, with the newly gained insight since then has actually made me switch to Chandler as my favorite. His sarcasm just clicks with me and I LOVE every single one of his scenes.

There is a big chance some of you are too young to be familiar with this show or the cast so I want to introduce you to ‘Sarcasm 101’ with Chandler Bing, an SNL sketch from 1998:
