Portable gaming has come in many forms over the past few decades with both Sega and—more successfully—Nintendo putting gaming hardware in our pockets. More recently, the focus has switched to gaming on our smartphones. Now we are getting gaming on a keyring thanks to PocketSprite. PocketSprite claims to be the world's smallest portable gaming device, and it's hard to argue against that. It measures just 55 by 32 by 14mm, and yet inside you'll find a super bright 96-by-45-pixel display (25 by 22mm 5:4 screen ratio) capable of 60fps, a mono speaker, rechargeable battery, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a D-pad and four buttons under the screen, and a Micro USB port for battery recharging. It supports Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Master System, and Game Gear games playable on the included GNUBoy and SMS Plus emulators. There's also a so-called "Boss Mode," allowing the PocketSprite to instantly turn on and let you pick up where you left off playing a game. Adding new games is done over Wi-Fi and stored on the the PocketSprite's 128Mbit flash drive. PocketSprite was developed by a team in Hong Kong led by Jeroen Domburg. He originally built the device as a proof-of-concept in 2016, and it proved popular with those who saw it. Now it's (hopefully) coming to market if the CrowdSupply crowdfunding campaign is a success. The team is asking for $20,000, of which $7,505 has already been pledged. If you want a PocketSprite, early birds can secure one to put together themselves for just $45 with free shipping worldwide. A pre-assembled unit is $55 and a Deluxe Edition, which uses a "machined aerospace-grade aluminum case and quartz screen protector," costs $199; only 200 will be offered. Article

DKT27 posted a topic in Technology NewsFans of the Half-Life series have been waiting many many years to see a conclusion to Gordon Freeman’s story but at this point, many have lost hope that Valve will ever return to it, especially now that so many writers have departed from the company. Now, it seems that Marc Laidlaw, the Half-Life series lead writer, may also have been a little tired of having to keep his story ideas to himself, as he just posted the full plot summary he wrote for Half-Life 2: Episode 3. In a post on his personal website titled ‘epistle 3’, Laidlaw posted his version of the story for Half-Life 2: Episode 3. Character names, location names and company names have been changed, likely for legal reasons, but for the most part, it is easy to work out. For instance, Gordan Freeman’s name is changed to ‘Gertie Fremont’, G-Man is ‘Mrs. X’, Alyx Vance is now ‘Alex Vaunt’ etc. Given that this news is so massive, it has sent a wave of traffic over to Laidlaw’s personal site, making the original post really difficult to access at the time of publishing. Fortunately, a fan by the name of ‘Jackathan’ has managed to obtain the whole thing and has preserved it in a GitHub post. He is going through and changing the obfuscated names back to their original versions. However, if you would rather read the original version, he also has a handy guide, so you can see which characters/locations had their names changed. Now before you get too excited, this isn’t an intricate breakdown of the entire game. Instead, this is a story summary going over the key events Laidlaw had planned for the final entry in the Half-Life 2 Episode series. Given Valve’s unwillingness to revisit the Half-Life series, this is probably the best conclusion we are ever going to get, so it is worth reading. If you are worried about spoilers then be aware that even if Valve does return to Half-Life, it likely won’t use Laidlaw’s version of the plot, especially now that it is out in the open. Right now, we don’t know what drove Laidlaw to break his silence and post something as huge as this. Perhaps Valve gave him the greenlight, or perhaps he was just tired of fans not getting to see his work. Either way, unless Laidlaw speaks out, we won’t know for sure.
