The dread of 'A Plague Tale: Innocence' wastes its great promise - 1時間前  Mashable!

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.  And that's where Plague Tale: Innocence, an overall well-crafted mid-sized stealth ga...more

Harrison Ford remembers his friend, Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew - 7時間前  Mashable!

Harrison Ford has paid tribute to his longtime friend, the late great Peter Mayhew, who was known for playing Han Solo's towering co-pilot, Chewbacca the Wookiee. 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 sweet man, nice man, and he had a hard time physically.

A Reddit user who faced a legal fight to reveal their identity has been allowed to stay anonymous, a court has ruled. The user, who posts with the name "Darkspilver," was represented by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and was concerned the revelation of his identity would put him at risk of being cut off from friends and family.

Fake 'drunk' Nancy Pelosi video goes viral, and it wasn’t even that hard to make - 12時間前  Mashable!

Who needs deepfakes when you can just run a video at reduced speed? An edited clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, altered to make it look like she's slurring her words, is making the rounds online following a Wednesday discussion at a Center for American Progress event.   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

Two Teslas race, one above ground, one underground. Guess which one won? - 1時間前  Mashable!

In 2016, while stuck in dreadful LA traffic, Elon Musk envisioned a faster way of transportation in busy cities — by driving underneath them.  Soon after that, Musk started the Boring Company, dedicated to alleviating traffic issues by building underground tunnels, just wide enough for a Tesla car to blaze through.  Now, Boring Company has put Musk's original idea through the test, by racing two Tesla cars; one through normal traffic, and the other through the company's test tunnel in Hawthorne, California.  SEE ALSO: Tesla releases DIY guides for Model 3 maintenance The c...more

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will resign on 7 June to make way for a new prime minister.  In a speech outside Downing Street, May said she had done her best to try to fulfil the 2016 EU referendum result, but that it was a "deep regret" that she was unable to deliver Brexit.  People on Twitter have already set their sights on a new candidate, however: the Downing Street sound engineer.  SEE ALSO: Theresa May attempts Brexit explainer video, gets meme'd into oblivion Prior to May's departure speech, a sound engineer was caught smiling at the camera.

Best Father's Day gifts: 40 things your dad won't buy for himself - 2時間前  Mashable!

Dads often get shit for dad jokes and being bad at texting, but father figures have another thing in common besides thinking terrible puns are hilarious: They're some of the most selfless people in the world. TBH, a lot of us wouldn't know how to live on our own if it wasn't for those father figures who taught us — this goes for uncles, step-dads, or anyone who stepped up to take on that role. And though he probably insists that you don't have to get him anything, Father's Day is an extra-special time to show your appreciation. Don't phone it in and get him a mug that says "Dad."

You might know by now, Leslie Jones is rather into Game of Thrones. And you bet the comedian was ready for the series finale on Sunday, hitting the couch with Seth Meyers for her longtime Late Night segment, "Game of Jones." Like they did for the Season 8 premiere, Jones and Meyers have incredible reactions to the turbulent, traumatic, and triumphant moments of the HBO series. "That snow coming down is like dandruff. Body dandruff," says Jones of King's Landing. There's Jones singing Madonna's 'This Used to Be My Playground" over Tyrion's mournful wander through King's Landing, and operaticall...more

This is why self-driving cars suck at making unprotected left turns - 10時間前  Mashable!

Human or robot driver, left-hand turns in a car are tough. Unprotected turns? Even harder. Cruise, the self-driving car company backed by General Motors, put out a video Thursday showing its self-driving electric Bolts making left turns all over San Francisco's busy streets. The company says it makes 1,400 unprotected left turns every 24 hours. For an autonomous car company it seems like this shouldn't be hailed as such an achievement, but it is. Waymo, the Google self-driving car spinoff company, notoriously struggled in Phoenix to turn left during testing on public roads. Its Chrysler Pacifi...more

'John Wick: Chapter 3' fight scenes, ranked by animal involvement - 12時間前  Mashable!

Warning: Major spoilers ahead for John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum. "All this because of a puppy?" "It wasn't just a puppy." Animals rule the third instalment of the John Wick franchise, Chapter 3 - Parabellum, which rolls around in dirty action, drops a bunch of kills at your feet, and rarely raises a snoot for air.  Director Chad Stahelski's Keanu Reeves-fronted action thriller pounces from one elegantly choreographed yet brutal fight scene to the next, with our titular hero piling up the body count faster than the audience can tally (I tried). But at the core of the films lies a secr...more

Nostalgic meme remembers the absurd bowling alley animations we all love - 14時間前  Mashable!

Why are bowling animations like this?  If you've ever been bowling, you probably remember the absurd 3D-animated scenes that played after each turn. Sometimes it's an anthropomorphic pin flashing you a thumbs up after a strike, jerkily rubbing its bowling pin head as if you personally hurt it. Other times an animated bowling ball will fly through the alley and straight into a terribly rendered galaxy. Whether you're scoring well or not, the most memorable part of the game is often the scorekeeping console's animations.  Bowling alley memes have taken over Twitter and Reddit. The nost...more
