Gamebandin avulla voit ottaa Minecraft-maailmasi mukaan kaikkialle!

Kaikenkattava Minecraft-kokemus rannekkeessa

Gamebandin avulla voit ottaa Minecraft-maailmasi mukaan kaikkialle!

Now Computing on valmis tukemaan suomalaisia Minecraftin pelaajia Gameband-rannekkeella: ensimmäisellä kuluttajille suunnatulla elektroniikkalaitteella, joka on omistettu Mojangin huippusuositulle pelille. 

Gameband on suunniteltu takaamaan pelaajille helppo pääsy pelitietoihinsa ja -asetuksiinsa sekä Minecraft-luomuksiinsa paikasta riippumatta. Tämä tyylikäs ranteeseen sujautettava laite sisältää kiinnostavia yllätyksiä ja muunneltavan LED-näytön.

Now Computing kehitti Gamebandin pelaajille, jotka kaipasivat helppoa tapaa kuljettaa Minecraft-maailmoitaan ja -asetuksiaan mukanaan. Tuloksena oli virtaviivainen ja kestävä ranteessa kannettava Minecraft-lisävaruste.

10 syytä miksi Gameband on amerikkalaisten Minecraft-fanien mielestä mahtava:

● Yhteensopiva niin Macin, Windowsin kuin Linuxinkin kanssa.
● Minecraftia voi pelata suoraan Gamebandilta.
● Ohjelmoitava LED-näyttö, jota voi käyttää kellona ja kalenterina.
● Mahdollisuus luoda viestejä, kuvia ja animaatioita PixelFurnace-sovelluksen avulla ja ladata niitä Gamebandiin.
● Pääsy omaan peliin ja omiin Minecraft-maailmoihin.
● Yhteensopiva modifikaatioiden kanssa.
● Varmuuskopioi kaikki luomuksesi pilveen.
● Gameband on roiskeenkestävä (IPX-luokitus: 4).
● Et joudu tekemään asennuksia, kun sinä tai lapsesi haluatte pelata Minecraftia uudella tietokoneella.
● USB 3.0 MLC -muistisiru on uskomattoman nopea ja sen käyttöikä on 10 kertaa pidempi kuin tavallisilla muistitikuilla.

“Idea Gamebandiin tuli pelaajilta: testaamiemme kehitysvaiheessa olevien tuotteiden pohjalta käyttäjät pyysivät meiltä ratkaisua, jolla voisivat kantaa pelikokemustaan helposti mukanaan”, kertoi Now Computingin toimitusjohtaja Feargal Mac Conuladh. “Ihmiset liikkuvat paljon, ja Minecraftin pelaajat käyttävät runsaasti aikaa rakennelmiinsa. Gameband + Minecraft antaa heille mahdollisuuden päästä vaivatta käsiksi täydelliseen Minecraft-kokemukseen missä tahansa paikasta riippumatta.”

“Olemme työstäneet vuosien ajan tuotevalikoimaa, joka tarjoaa pelaajille uusia tapoja pelata Minecraftia, ja Gameband sopii täydellisesti joukkoon!” sanoi Mojangin operatiivinen johtaja Vu Bui. “Se on ainutlaatuinen tuote. Minecraftin punakivien inspiroima design näyttää upealta ja on hauska tapa tuoda esiin käyttäjän mieltymys peliin, mutta laite tarjoaa myös todella siistejä toimintoja; sen avulla voi kantaa maailmoitaan mukanaan tietokoneelta toiselle ja varmuuskopioida ne pilveen sekä näperrellä pikselianimaatioita LED-näytölle. Olen ylpeä, että ollut mukana tässä projektissa!”

Hollywoodgäster klara för A Date with Hollywood på Comic Con Malmö

Nu är det klart vilka kända personer som kommer att delta på Comic Con Malmös exklusiva VIP-dag med A Date With Hollywood; en heldag där deltagare får chansen att ställa frågor, lyssna på föredrag och träffa stora, kända namn från filmbranschen i Los Angeles. Comic Con Malmö arrangeras för första gången den 12-13 september på Malmömässan.

Gabriel Cohen är manager på Management 360, ett av Hollywoods största managementbolag och han är specialiserad på att hitta och utveckla nya skådespelartalanger i filmbranschen. Hans lista på klienter innehåller namn som Margot Robbie (THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, SUICIDE SQUAD och kommande TARZAN med Alexander Skarsgård), Michael Chiklis (THE SHIELD, VEGAS) och Luke Mitchell (AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.). Han kommer att ge sina bästa tips om hur man kan slå sig in i filmbranschen i Hollywood, vilka som är de vanligaste missuppfattningarna kring att jobba som skådespelare samt hur han arbetar med internationella skådespelare för att bygga deras karriärer i Los Angeles.

Christian Magdu är känd från svenska storserier som BECK, OSKYLDIGT DÖMD och just nu aktuell med JOHAN FALK-filmerna LOCKDOWN och SLUTET, som toppat alla listor i sommar. Han är del av den svenskvåg som intagit Hollywood under de sista åren och kommer att tala om hur hans resa dit började, hur det var att som svensk jobba med produktioner som TRUE BLOOD, EASY TO ASSEMBLE och LOST TAPES och lite om skillnaderna på att jobba med en svensk agent och en amerikansk manager, samt hur man kan skaffa agent/manager i LA.

Jeanne McCarthy har jobbat som rollsättare (casting) i mer än 20 år, storfilmer och serier hon varit inblandad i är bland annat Oscarsnominerade FOXCATCHER, 21 & 22 JUMP STREET, GET HIM TO THE GREEK, I, ROBOT; FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, ANCHORMAN, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND och SILICON VALLEY. Hon är ett av Hollywoods absolut största namn inom rollsättning och har bakgrund från Broadway i New York. Jeanne kommer bland annat att prata om hur casting-processen i Hollywood går till och om hur man som skådespelare kan öka sina chanser att sticka ut i den massiva konkurrens som råder på marknaden.

Chris Gorham är ett känt namn från tv-rutan i USA. Hans stora genombrott kom som den blinde CIA-agenten Auggie i COVERT AFFAIRS (som bl a filmat ett avsnitt i Stockholm), men för den svenska publiken är han nog mest känd som Henry, Bettys pojkvän, i tv-serien UGLY BETTY och som trollkarlen från Oz i ONCE UPON A TIME. Han långfilmsdebuterade i Oscarsvinnaren Danny Boyles film A LIFE LESS ORDINARY, har spelat huvudrollen mot Anne Hathaway i THE OTHER SIDE OF HEAVEN och gjort flertalet röster till tecknade serier baserade på serietidningar, bland annat BATMAN och JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR samt THRONE OF ATLANTIS. Chris har också regisserat avsnitt av tv-serier och har en lång erfarenhet av att som ung skådespelare bygga upp en framgångsrik karriär i Hollywood steg för steg. Han kommer också att dela med sig av sina bästa tips framför och bakom kameran.

Far From The Madding Crowd

Romantisk drama 3. september 2015

Danmark 2015.08.20 – Far From The Madding Crowd. Carey Mulligan spiller den stærke smukke viktorianske kvinde i dette medrivende romantiske drama – baseret på Thomas Hardy’s klassiker af samme titel. Mulligan er Bathsheba Everdene, en selvstændig kvinde som har hele tre beundrere: En fåravler (Matthias Schoenaerts); en lækker soldat (Tom Sturridge); og en rig lidt ældre herre (Michael Sheen). Denne tidsløse historie udforsker Bathsheba’s håndtering af relationer, kærlighed og modstandskraft.

Thomas Vinterberg

Filmen har et stærkt dansk fingeraftryk, da det er Thomas Vinterberg der har instrueret filmen. Umiddelbart synes et romantisk drama ikke at ligge inden for Thomas’ normale interesseområde – det er bare præcis det der gør udfordringen perfekt for ham:

“Jeg kan godt lide at være på tynd i is; udforske nye verdner. Far From The Madding Crowd er fuld af fantastiske karakter og konstant omvæltning af lykke – og det er det der gør historiefortælling god i en hvilken som helst era.”

“I like to be on thin ice with my projects; I like to explore new territories. The story is full of fantastic characters and constant reversals of fortune – and that’s what makes for great storytelling in any era.”

Inden Thomas Vinterberg gik i gang med at filme vidste han godt, at det var store ting han arbejdede med:

“Dette er en historie med fantastiske karakter og skrevet med stor dybde, smidigt integreret ind i det landskab der omgiver dem. Min tilgang var at kombinere denne episke storhed med troværdighed – at vise alle karakterenes svag- og skrøbeligheder sammen med det imponerende landskab og drama.”

“This is a story of fantastic characters created on the page with great depth, movingly integrated into the landscape surrounding them.  My approach was to combine that epic grandness with believability – to bring out all the vulnerability and fragility in these characters, while showing all the lavish terrain and drama.”

Can it Run VR? Crytek and Basemark Join Forces to Create Virtual Reality Benchmark

Helsinki (Finland) and Frankfurt am Main (Germany) August 6th, 2015 – Basemark and Crytek today announced a new partnership to help create a definitive PC system test for virtual reality gaming. 

The new VR benchmark will enable gamers and PC hardware companies to easily assess the level of experience they can expect when running virtual reality content, and will be the first service available that gives users recognizable, real-world metrics to describe their system’s VR readiness with various HMDs out there.

Developed using Crytek’s CRYENGINE technology, the benchmark will provide detailed feedback in areas such as the best graphical settings to use with a variety of VR headsets. Basemark’s expertise in measuring performance standards will be key as they formulate an objective test that evaluates everything from frame rate capabilities to memory consumption, latency issues, 3D audio performance and much more.  

Crytek’s Creative Director for CRYENGINE, Frank Vitz, said: “Basemark is already helping to measure technology standards in other areas of gaming, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with them as we work to establish a user-friendly yardstick for VR performance. We believe CRYENGINE can become a go-to tool for developers looking to create compelling VR experiences, and this partnership means players can also count on CRYENGINE as they evaluate whether their PC is ready for the most advanced, cutting-edge VR content available.”

“We wanted to make a real-world VR gaming benchmark as opposed to a theoretical one and hence we’re very excited to announce this partnership with Crytek, the leading game engine company”, said Tero Sarkkinen, founder and CEO of Basemark, “By using CRYENGINE as the base and vetting the test workloads under our rigorous development process involving all the key technology players, we will forge the definitive benchmark for all PC VR gamers.”

Representatives from both Crytek and Basemark will be attending Siggraph 2015 next week in Los Angeles and are available for meetings and interviews about the VR benchmark development.

For more information on Basemark and to apply to join the benchmark development effort, visit http://www.basemark.com/participate-vr. To find out more about Crytek’s CRYENGINE technology visit www.cryengine.com.

SWORD COAST LEGENDS RELEASE DATE MOVED TO SEPTEMBER 29 FOR PC, MAC & LINUX

Sword Coast Legends First DLC “Rage of Demons” Now Free with All Pre-Orders; 

“Head Start” Access Planned for Pre-Launch

“We’re extremely excited to show everyone what we’ve been up to with Sword Coast Legends, but it looks like our dungeon bosses need a few more hit points … Larethar needs even more of a Scottish accent … and the game itself could use a touch ‘more cowbell,'” said Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends.  “All kidding aside, our fans deserve nothing less than whatever it takes on our part to deliver the compelling roleplaying dynamic of Dungeons & Dragons tabletop to the world of cooperative multiplayer video games.  If that means the game needs a few additional weeks of balancing, tuning and general polish — so be it.”

“While it’s hard to wait a few more weeks for Sword Coast Legends to drop, I’m happy the n-Space team is dedicated to crafting a quality D&D experience. All pre-orders getting the Rage of Demons DLC for free is exciting news,” said Nathan Stewart, Brand Director of Dungeons & Dragons at Wizards of the Coast. “And for D&D fans, the Rage of Demons DLC gives them another exciting way to face the demon lords in the Underdark.”

Media attending this week’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany can see and experience Sword Coast Legends first hand by visiting the G.A.M.E. Booth in Business Center Hall 2.1, Booth #C30.  Later this month, Sword Coast Legends will also make its first playable debut at PAX Prime in Seattle, August 28-31, at the Wizards of the Coast Rage of Demons Booth #1642.

The studios also announced that all current and future Sword Coast Legends pre-orders will receive the very first DLC, “Rage of Demons,” free.  Sword Coast Legends is currently available for pre-order from Steam and the PlayStation Store for $34.99.  In addition to the free DLC, Digital Deluxe and Collector’s Editions, which include a tome of knowledge, cloth map of the Sword Coast, the official soundtrack, numerous in-game bonuses, starter items and DM abilities, as well as a statue of the powerful demon Belaphoss (Collector’s Edition) are also available for pre-order for $59.99 and $239.99, respectively, from www.swordcoast.com  Details regarding the upcoming “Rage of Demons” DLC expansion for Sword Coast Legends will be announced at a later date.
