Las nuevas tecnologías, las aplicaciones móviles y los sistemas de Inteligencia Artificial representan algunos de los elementos que han cambiado la forma en cómo los seres humanos interactuamos con nuestro entorno. Un ejemplo palpable de ello y que para algunos pudiese resultar hasta ‘dramático’ y ‘preocupante’, es la vía a través de la cual muchas parejas heterosexuales se conocen hoy en día: gracias a una app o una página web.

 

Un estudio adelantado por un equipo multidisciplinario de la Universidad de Stanford llegó a la conclusión de que es mucho más probable que parejas heterosexuales se conozcan y se enamoren en línea que en el mundo real. El mismo trabajo señala que al menos en Estados Unidos, los ‘medios tradicionales’ para ‘encontrar el amor’ están cada vez más en desuso. Estos son: la familia, vecinos y amigos.

 

Para 2009 el porcentaje de las relaciones entre un chico y una chica que comenzaron una aventura juntos luego de conocerse de manera virtual fue del 22%. Para 2017 esta cifra ya rozaba el 40%.

 

Los responsables de la investigación han señalado como “natural” la confianza que el público siente hacia las nuevas soluciones tecnológicas. Lo que les genera sorpresa es como una institución histórica como la amistad ha venido perdiendo peso. Al menos en lo que se refiere a las relaciones de pareja.

Por último afirman que estas nuevas alternativas (las apps de citas) representan una adición positiva para el mundo. En palabras del sociólogo Michael Rosenfeld, el líder del equipo que sacó adelante este trabajo, “la tecnología genera una interacción entre personas que probablemente no tendrían (en el mundo real) esta oportunidad. Y esto es muy bueno.”

A new collection of Samurai Shodown games is coming out in a couple of weeks, and it marks another notable exclusivity deal for the Epic Games Store. Samurai Shodown Neo Geo Collection will be released on Steam on June 18th and PS4 and Switch on June 28th for $39.99, but you’ll be able to get it first on the Epic Games Store on June 11th, and it’ll be completely free for a week.

Samurai Shodown Neo Geo Collection includes all six Neo Geo iterations of the classic fighting series, plus a completed version of Samurai Shodown V Perfect, an unreleased game that was supposed to be the final Neo Geo title. Each game has online modes and includes both the Japanese and English arcade versions. There’s also a “museum” featuring interviews, music, development documents, and more.

So, it has finally been announced! Samurai Shodown V Perfect, a game that has gone unreleased for 15 years, is included in the upcoming Samurai Shodown collection from @SNKPofficial. In this thread I’ll share with you how this game got saved after so long! https://t.co/U5X8b0TVIq

blizzcon-2020-is-canceled

Blizzard Entertainment will not host its annual BlizzCon event this year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The event is usually held later in the year, with BlizzCon 2019 kicking off on November 1st and concluding on November 2nd. In early April, Blizzard announced that it was uncertain about hosting BlizzCon this year.

Despite canceling the convention, Blizzard may be looking to hold a virtual event in its place. “We’re talking about how we might be able to channel the BlizzCon spirit and connect with you in some way online,” BlizzCon executive producer Saralyn Smith said in a blog post.

BlizzCon is just one of many video game conventions that have been canceled this year as a result of the pandemic. QuakeCon, Gamescom, and Tokyo Game Show have all been canceled, too. The biggest gaming event of the season, E3, was canceled back in early March.

Some shows have decided to go virtual. The popular fighting game tournament EVO will be held virtually this summer, and an unofficial E3 2020 replacement has come in the form of Summer Games Fest, with a slew of games news slated to be unveiled all summer long.

Twitch has re-signed popular streamers Jaryd “Summit1G” Lazar, Brett “Dakotaz” Hoffman, and Josh “JoshOG” Beaver, ensuring they will stay with the service at a time when others are taking deals to stream elsewhere (via The Washington Post). The terms of the contracts were not disclosed, though they are “multi-year content deals,” according to a press release from Loaded, the talent agency that represents all three of them.

Combined, Lazar, Hoffman, and Beaver have more than 11 million Twitch followers. Lazar has more than 5 million followers, making him one of the top 10 most-followed streamers on Twitch. Hoffman has 4.3 million followers, and Beaver has 1.73 million followers.

“At a time when community is paramount, these Creators are a core part of Twitch’s mission to bring people together, and we’re excited to continue our partnership as we build the future of gaming and live entertainment,” said Michael Aragon, Twitch’s SVP of content, in a statement.

Some other popular streamers who developed large followings on Twitch have moved to other streaming platforms in recent months. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, and Cory “King Gothalion” Michael have all moved to Microsoft’s Mixer, for example, while Jack “CouRage” Dunlop and Rachel “Valkyrae” Hofstetter stream exclusively on YouTube.

Today’s signings aren’t Twitch’s first among this streamer exodus, however. Twitch re-signed Ben “DrLupo” Lupo, Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar, and Saqib “Lirik” Zahid in December and Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm in March.
