Resident Evil 4 was re-released on Nintendo Switch May 21 (along with the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0), making this the perfect time to revisit one of the greatest games of all time.
Resident Evil 4 is a masterpiece of action horror. Released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2005, this game reshaped the landscape of the genre into what it looks like today.

The apocalypse has become the preferred narrative setting for masochistic catharsis in fiction, whether in movies (A Quiet Place), shows (Walking Dead), or games (The Last of Us — and countless others).
Yet we don't actually go to these stories for the overwhelming dread inherent to these post-catastrophe settings. What we want, really, is to feel the moments of relief in these stories — some glimmer of hope that we'll make it out alive of our own rapidly deteriorating real-life world.

Business school: A surprisingly contentious topic worthy of any protracted Twitter tirade. Depending upon who you ask, it's (A) a two-year networking party with a six-figure price tag, (B) only worth pursuing if you get into a top-5 school, or (D) totally not worth it.

Social networking giant Facebook is about to launch a cryptocurrency of its own in the first quarter of 2020, the BBC claims.
The cryptocurrency, internally called GlobalCoin, will launch in about a dozen countries, with testing commencing by the end of this year.

Talking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Thursday, the Star Wars actor said just a few words about his friend, who passed away on May 3. Ford noted the quiet challenge Mayhew faced playing Chewbacca.

"He was a really neat guy....more

The news comes by way of the Washington Post, which notes that the only digital trickery required to fool millions of Americans into thinking the Democratic congresswoman was drunk in public was to run the video at 75 percent speed and tweak the pitch.
That's it. No fancy AI or special video editing skills were nee...more
We may still be years away from Facebook's augmented reality glasses becoming an actual product, but we now know a little more about how they might work.
A new patent filing reveals additional details about Facebook's AR glasses, including how they might handle audio. The patent, originally filed in January but published Thursday, describes a "cartilage conduction audio system for eyewear devices."
The glasses' overall design is similar to what we saw in a previous patent published in 2017, though it now appears plans for the glasses are much further along.
