Myspace still exists? Who uses it?

Don't be too quick to dismiss "dead" sites. They usually have a lot of activity, it's just that everyone focuses on the "new" thing. Myspace was still getting 50 million unique monthly visitors as of 2015. Sure, that's small next to Facebook but it's still almost 1% of the entire world's population, and a bigger chunk of the digitally-connected world population.

Kotaku covers a neat project.

https://kotaku.com/ocarina-of-time-is-now-playable-in-co-op-1833365718

Progress is still being made, but the current status looks VERY playable to me.  I actually look forward to this. It looks like it would be lots of fun to gang-bang a dungeon. Water temple sounds like it would be especially fun. (and frustrating, with different players all jacking with the water level.)

I'm astonished at the ongoing orgy of programmers that are infatuated with Ocarina of Time. I've seen multiple (highly edited) let's plays with the game modded to hell and back, everything randomized, all nonessential items replaced with ice traps, one hit KO, and one mod that was for Super Mario 64 but it changed the entire game into a recreation of OoT.

yes, but those are all single player.

AND, because this is a framework in an emulator, it might be possible to do this with master quest, et al as well.

I just imagine a "bay 12 plays OoT" session, and the hysterics that could happen.

Watching Google's GDC gaming announcement.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

It claims to be highly performant. Yet the Stadia controller connects to your wifi and sends your inputs to Google for processing. The Stadia server could be amazing but, unless they're doing some amazing predictive magic (which, by the by, Linus Tech Tips has a pretty good video on), I imagine the input/response delays will be intense.

I can't see how it would be pleasant to play or profitable for google.  Hardware isn't exactly cheap, and game developers are always going to want their cut.  I'd bet this goes the same way as OnLive did.

Good riddance, too. Streaming becoming a common thing is terrible for anyone who would like to be able to actually own games.

I can see two possible outcomes from this:

Google sets a new standard and ushers in a paradigm shift in how people play games.
or
The endeavor flops and is quietly added to the Google pile of misadventures

Only time will tell...

Time is money, by the way.

Seriously.  This sounds like they need to start putting hidden body cams inside the damn buttons or badges, so that there is no convenient "oops! I dunno sarge, it must have shut itself off!" bullshit like this.  I get how these things can malfunction-- as a former IT guy, I TOTALLY understand how they can and will fail. (defective batteries, wires get broken from moving around)  So, instead we need redundancy.  Lots of redundancy.  With units the police do not know about, and must never know about.

You’re forgetting that currently, police already have the ability to turn the body cams off and on at will, and frequently ask each other to turn them off with no attempt to hide said request.

Perhaps make that illegal first, and then start stuffing redundant body cams everywhere?

Make AI-controlled camera drones which follow cops around everywhere.

And everyone else, just to be safe.
