Outriders might seem like an amalgamation of games we’ve already played before, but there’s one gameplay mechanic that Square Enix’s new looter shooter has totally made its own: the waypoint system. And as daft as it may sound, it’s honestly worth celebrating. We’ve seen games handle waypoints differently throughout the years, from simple distance counters that tick down the closer you get in Halo to the overhead, guiding beam found in The Division – a personal favorite of mine that I previously regarded as the pinnacle of waypoint systems, just so you know. All of these were equally effective in their own right, but none of them come close to the majesty, almost hypnotic beauty of Outriders’ waypoint. In a game that’s frequently asking you to jump to new locations, talk to mysterious strangers and navigate a savage land, it’s a relief that it works so wonderfully well. I can’t help but nod respectfully every time I use it. It's official: Outriders is on Xbox Game Pass … [Read more...] about Outriders’ waypoint system is a work of art

LONDON — Should we stay in or should we pull out? Whether the UK should remain part of the European Union is a hot topic this week as Prime Minister David Cameron attempts to negotiate the country's position within the EU ahead of an in/out referendum on membership. See also: If Britain exits the EU there will be no second vote, Cameron says Strong opinions have been voiced on both sides of the debate, but nobody's come up with quite such an odd persuasion technique as pro-"Brexit" group Vote Leave, who want the UK out of the EU. They've released a batch of promotional condoms encouraging Brits to "pull out" of the EU. "Vote Leave: The safer choice" some read, while others insist: "Vote Leave: It's riskier to stay in." Images of the condoms were posted to Twitter on Thursday by Students for Britain.

This story is part of Apple Event , our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters. Apple unveiled its AirTag tracking tiles Tuesday at Spring Loaded -- the company's first virtual event of 2021 . The reveal comes the same month Apple began allowing its Find My app to locate lost items made by third-party companies , signaling the iPhone maker's growing interest in tracking tech outside of core Apple offerings. Rumors of an upcoming AirTag product had gone back to 2019, and the pieces began to fall into place for Apple watchers after AirTag tech was hinted at in the iOS 13 code and when the iPhone 11 was found to have incorporated ultra wideband, or UWB, technology . The groundwork for the gadget was laid even farther back, in 2014, with the iBeacon , a small, inexpensive Bluetooth transmitter that aimed to provide location-based information and services to iPhones. While Bluetooth can track items to within about five meters, UWB can track … [Read more...] about Apple AirTags: Price, engraving, everything else to know about the Tile rivals
For a few brief minutes, a suborbital rocket from NASA has an ambitious plan to seek out particles from interstellar space . A mission called Spatial Heterodyne Interferometric Emission Line Dynamics Spectrometer (SHIELDS) will lift off from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico no earlier than Monday (April 19). It will soar to a peak height of 186 miles (roughly 300 kilometers) — a little more than half the altitude of the International Space Station — and peer at the sky for a few minutes with its telescope. With this capability, it is possible to see light from particles from beyond our solar system even on a short flight outside the Earth's atmosphere. The mission follows a similar study in 2014 ; this mission will extend the project's scope. Related: These NASA rocket launches to study Earth's atmosphere are just gorgeous (photos) To understand what SHIELDS is looking for, it's best to start with a quick overview of our solar … [Read more...] about Small NASA rocket will study boundary of interstellar space
