Where have I seen this before? Oh yes, before Realtime Worlds went bankrupt. 38 Studios may still be alive, but that isn’t going to stop the vultures from coming in and taking dibs on who gets what cut of meat. Back in 2010, we had the combination flock of Sony, Codemasters, and Blitz to drain whatever remained of Realtime Worlds. Now that 38 Studios is facing layoffs, however, it is Turbine’s turn for first picks. In a press release today, Turbine announced recruiting in Providence, Rhode Island is set to begin on May 22nd, from 5-9pm at Hotel Providence. You can even check out a list of currently available positions. Rhode Island Governor Chafee announced today that Project Copernicus is set for a June 2013 release date. When reached for comment as to whether or not the two events were related, Turbine’s career center (pictured above) simply responded “Oh gorgh, nope nope nope nope, I’m not gonna do it ma, you can’t make me, nope nope nope … [Read more...] about Turbine Getting Head Start, Recruiting In Rhode Island

Google’s “no holds barred” approach to bad ads isn’t just for show. The Chrome ad blocker is real and currently being developed for Android. Chrome Canary, an unstable developer-build for Chrome browser (for Android), was recently found containing a new feature: an ‘Ads’ toggle within the Site Settings menu. This option (turned off by default in the current build) gives users the option to “Block ads from sites that tend to show intrusive ads”. Coalition for Better Ads (of which Google is a member) has already classified which ads are intrusive in their research. The finding was first posted on Caschys Blog. The author took screenshots in German as well as English versions: Techcrunch later confirmed the findings, but neither NDTV nor we at AdPushup (in India) could find the option in the Chrome Canary or Dev builds for Android. This led us to assume that as of now, Google may be testing the ad filter in countries where it is … [Read more...] about Google Chrome’s Built-in Adblock Shows up in Chrome Canary
Last week, the Worlds Adrift team asked you to break its servers. You didn’t. But you did give them a thorough test, which pushes Bossa Studios along to the next leg of development. And that means… a whole new world. A lot of new worlds, in fact, all of them built by players with the free creator tool. “Worlds Adrift is a Community-Crafted MMO, but what exactly does that mean? Yes, ‘crafting’ plays a key element in the game, whether that’s building a better ship, forging a new alliance, or plotting out your next adventure, but it actually goes a lot deeper than that. In fact, look out to the horizon, and each and every island that scatters the skyline was crafted by a player, such as yourself, using our free Island Creator tool… and we just dropped another 300 of your amazing creations into game, with the recent release of 0.1.9.” We’ve included the thank-you fly-through video below, along with the explainer video, which features a … [Read more...] about Worlds Adrift adds 300 brand-new player-made islands to its early access build
