YouTube Is Working On Its Own Choose Your Own Adventure

It’s no surprise that after that massive Black Mirror Bandersnatch, other major companies would try to cash on it the success. YouTube is working on its own version of that now too.

A YouTube spokesperson said that it will be taken over by a new team that will focus on programming and live specials. Of course like any choose your own adventure it will be driven by the decision you make along the way. YouTube will be integrating some products features from it’s YouTube Originals.

The timing of this announcement is a bit odd. Because it was only a few months ago YouTube announced they’d be cutting back b/c of budget reasons. So it’s unclear on how many different choose your own adventure we’ll get.

Scientist Are Getting Ready To Show First Imagine Of A Supermassive Black Hole

Tomorrow (4/10/19) Scientist all over the world are going to collaborate together to realise the first photo of a black hole! This is going to be made by observations made all of the world, with all this combined work they’ll have made a virtual telescope that’s as big as planet Earth. It’ll be so strong that we’ll be able to see the black hole in the center of our Galaxy and tomorrow they’ll have enough information to show the public how black holes actually look like.

Black Holes are impossible to see with the naked eye. They don’t allow any light to go in making it difficult to spot without the proper equipment. So instead of actually getting a good imagine of it we’re going to be able to see only the silhouette of it. Black holes have such a strong gravitational pull that if someone was to get sucked in there is no way to escape from one.

No one really knows how a black hole actually looks like so this will shed some light on the matter. Many people are also hoping that maybe this could give us more information on how they have so much mass compared to our sun. Scientist are hoping with this no information they can start to form educated theories on this too.

The Event Horizon Telescope the one that’s going to be used tomorrow has seen two different black holes back in 2017. One was spotted at the center of our galaxy and the other was thought to be the center of a nearby galaxy.

One of the biggest challenges they faced was holding all the memory. They receive so much information at such a fast pace it makes it difficult to store it all. But now with technology it made it a whole lot easier to store so much data at once.

The observation will be happening tomorrow 9 EST April 10th. If you want to watch the live stream tune into any of these tomorrow National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, the European Commission, and the National Science Foundation.

Nintendo Labo Will Have VR Breath Of The Wild & Mario Too!

Nintendo is finally jumping in the VR game and is coming out swinging too! They’re coming out with a VR Labo, and the reasonings for this is pretty simple. The first one is Nintendo loves to get our money, and number two they want to make VR a little more accessible to families at a lower price. Compared to the PS4 VR or Oculus.

Here’s the official statement Nintendo made on Twitter

https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/1113969503459663873

For Super Mario Odyssey it seems like they will have a “Bite-Sized” version of the game, with three different mini missions. As for Breath Of The Wild it will have a little bit more to offer. It seems like all you’ll need to do is enable it in the settings.

The VR set will come with a few games of it own as well. One of them will allow you to build a rocket launcher and even a windmill. The VR update for both Mario and Zelda will come out this month April 25th 2019 for free of course. The actual VR kit will be available to buy on the 12th of this month and will cost $79.99 USD. They will also have a starter kit with the VR goggles and a blaster for $39.99 USD.

Boeing’s First Space Flight Gets Extended And Delayed

The Boeing Space flight will no longer be a quick trip to the International Space Station. But will in fact be a full plead mission that will last a few months. NASA has announced that it will be testing Starliners (Boeing’s ship) first uncrewed flight test. As well as a test with the full crew sometime this year.

Originally Boeing was going to have a short trip. But NASA had decided to extend the mission to give them more options. NASA has seats on a russian rocket that will allow astronauts to stay on the space station for a year. They’re thinking about buying more of these just incase the commercial flight crew isn’t ready in time for it’s launch. With a larger crew that means NASA can keep more people in the space station to make sure it’s operational.

Phil McAlister, director of the commercial spaceflight division at NASA went on record to say. “NASA’s assessment of extending the mission was found to be technically achievable without compromising the safety of the crew,” as well as “Commercial crew flight tests, along with the additional Soyuz opportunities, help us transition with greater flexibility to our next-generation commercial systems under the Commercial Crew Program.”

As of right now NASA doesn’t even know when the rocket will take off yet. One thing they do need to do first is make sure Boeing has it’s uncrewed test flight first before they make any decisions going forward. NASA is claiming that the boeing rocket is ready but they’re using this additional time to run some test before the uncrewed flight. A reason why the Starliner hasn’t been tested yet is because the company in charge of flying it The United Launch Alliance is, doing a mission for the airforce in june. Which complicates the flying schedules.

Starliner has had a few problems of its own too. Back in june 2018 the engine test failed. Nearly a year later they will restart the engine test in a test facility in New Mexico. It’s no secret that these engine test are crucial for the launch and need to succeed before they do any test flights. However a date for that hasn’t even been set yet too.

BorderLands 3 Set to Release On Sept 13th

BorderLands 3 has taken the internet by storm and has gotten just about everyone excited for it. To no surprise it will be coming to both Xbox One and Playstation 4. But was is shocking is that if you have a PC it will be a Epic Game store exclusive until April 2020. This is a big thing for Epic Game Store because they are currently aiming to be the next big PC gaming service.

Of course the iconic Clap Trap that we all love and the new main villains the Calypso Twins. Gearbox will be having a livestream of the game on May 1st so we’ll have a little more information then.

What we do know right now are the classes for the vault hunters which are.

Moze as The Gunner: It seems like she will have a giant mech to help you when you need that extra firepower. Which looks simply awesome!

Respawn Fixes A Bug That Scared The Apex Community

Early today a new patch came out for Apex Legends that had a lot of people scared. What seemed like a simple patch the 1.1 version shocked just about everyone. People had noticed that everything they’ve ever done in the game was gone. All progress for battle passes any skins, or characters you’ve unlocked gone faster than thanos could snap his fingers.

One reddit user by the name of UrsineVulpine wrotethis is great, only the update wiped my stats, level, battle pass levels, unlocked legends, skins, crafting metals, legend tokens and refunded my coins for buying the battle pass and reset everything back to 0. Any danger of a fix for that?!”

With another user saying “My account reset is deeply concerning. 221 Hours played and a ton of packs purchased. I’m stumped, well and truly!

Those were just a few people but needless to say it had many upset and worried. The problem was caught fairly quick and the official Apex Legends twitter account said “We are aware and looking into the issue with accounts losing their progress after the update today. Will provide update ASAP”.

The update to the story is that Respawn has fixed the problem. It turns out that they’ve accidently put players data in a server that had no information on them whatsoever. That’s why everyone had everything taken from them. They put all of the original progress you’ve made on your account back.

Here’s an official statement by Respawn posted on reddit.“Fortunately, your progress up until the update was still safe and sound,” reads the post. “We shut down all live servers so we could remove players from the wrong place and roll up the correct servers with your progress. Once we confirmed internally that we had fixed the issue we started rolling out the right servers starting with Xbox and staggered the updates to PS4 and PC.”

So once again everything is back to the way it was, and you can go back to playing Apex in peace.

US: Movie Review

Jordan Peele does it once again! He finds a way to scare the living sh*t out of us and at the same time make a fantastic movie. It seemed like a impossible task to follow up his debuting movie Get Out but in comparison to US it makes Get Out look like child’s play.

From the very beginning the movie sets an odd and chilling tone that sets the theme for the rest of the film. It follows the family of Adelaide Wilson but mainly focuses on her. A key moment happened in her childhood that would forever haunt her. It was something so horrific that no one but herself knows what happened. But when her past finally comes back to haunt her it’s not only her that’s getting targeted. You discover that something far worse than what meets the eye is going on, much like beautiful painting the more you look at it the more you seem to notice. And just when you think you have it all figured out the movie throws a left hook at you.

One of  the great things about this movie is the fact that it’s a perfect blend of classic horror and current horror. Peele brings a new kind of horror to the table one that makes you think a little bit more outside the box. With all the twist and turns in the movie you can’t really tell what’s going to happen next.

But at the same time stays true to what we love about old school horror movies it even sounds like he uses traditional horror noses to give you that nostalgia feeling. For example when you first see the doppelganger family, you can feel exactly what the normal family is feeling. He managed to capture that true horror feeling making you feel like, you yourself is at actual risk for your life

With every fight scene that happened felt extremely real, these were normal people fighting for their lives. They were no police officer or military man there to save the day it was people like you and I. Making every encounterment that much more intense. To go further off that every fight with each doppelganger was intense in its own ways. It forced the normal family to accept things about themselves that they didn’t like. It was much like facing your own demons and overcoming some of your biggest obstacles and if they fail to do so in these fights it would cost them their lives.

Another great things about Peele movies is all the symbolism he puts in. Right off the bat you see things that you can tell means more than meets the eye. It becomes a fun task to kind of figure what certain things mean while watching the movie play out. It’s one of many things that makes Peele movies so much more fun and exciting. There where so many Easter eggs that give the movie so much more depth!

US is one of those movies that will keep you questioning it far after it’s is over. It is an amazing original idea that takes horror to a whole new level, and he continues to redefine what a horror movie really is. There aren’t too many movies that capture you as well as this one does so do yourself a favor and see it in theaters now!

With all that being said the movie is a 10/10 it is truly a masterpiece and a work of art.
