  7. Spoiler alert: Both machines rely on emulating games made for other consoles and handhelds. Soulja Boy has taken it upon himself to enter the console business by launching two new pieces of hardware with his name attached. Under the brand SouljaGame, the rapper released the SouljaGame Console and the SouljaGame Handheld, both of which seem to be part of a larger effort on his part to put together a line of branded products that includes the SouljaWatch, SouljaPad, SouljaPhone, and SouljaPods. While certainly an interesting business move, observers have noted the similarity all of the products bear to high profile knock-off electronics that can be found on services like Wish or Alibaba. Compare the SouljaGame Console on the left to the Product X PRO 4K Video Game Console found on Alibaba The reliance on emulation stands out as perhaps the most shocking part about the launch of these devices. The SouljaGame Console comes packaged with 800 console titles and promises to play games intended for SouljaGame, PlayStation, NeoGeo, PC, Sega, Game Boy Advance, and NES games. The console also claims to be capable of outputting 4K resolutions. Meanwhile, the SouljaGame Handheld comes stocked with 3,000 titles and claims to play games intended for Nintendo Switch, 3DS, PlayStation Vita, NeoGeo, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advanced. Setting aside the dubiously legal nature of emulation as an explicit purpose for a commercial product, the console itself seems to be a slightly repackaged version of the Product X PRO 4K Video Game Console. Both share almost exactly the same specs, right down to the built-in library of 800 games and the support of TF memory cards up to 32gb in size. Both consoles even make use of controllers that appear to be wholesale ripoffs of PlayStation's controller designs. As for the SouljaGame Handheld, it's even more of a mystery. The handheld's massive library seems to be an eclectic grab-bag of titles with the games advertised on it ranging from something that looks like an Incredibles game from the Game Boy Advance, an untranslated Pokemon game, Golden Sun, Sonic Racing, and more. It also claims to have download support and the ability to play games on the handheld on the television via a "connerting cable." The device seems like it can also play videos as it boasts MKV and AVI file support. Honestly, I don't know what to make of this. I don't think I could recommend anyone go out of their way to buy either of these machines, but I also can't deny that I have a morbid curiosity that makes me want to experiment with this strange collection of devices. On the other hand, with the recent revelation that Sony's PlayStation Classic runs on emulation, boasts fewer games, and is easily hacked, maybe there's a market for a dedicated emulation machine with a much larger library? What do you think of Soulja Boy's ambitious foray into the console and handheld markets?

  9. Will the woeful saga of Fallout 76 ever end? If you'll recall, earlier this week Bethesda announced that they would indeed be offering replacement bags for those who bought the Power Armor edition of Fallout 76 and were dismayed by the cheap nylon of the bags as opposed to the sturdy canvas bag that was advertised. To do that, customers were directed toward Bethesda's support site where they could fill out a form for a replacement. The only problem? Due to lax security on the support site, some people who filled out the form were given access to the data of other customers. The leak has since been fixed, but the data of over one hundred people was visible to some customers seeking their rightfully owed duffle bag. That information included emails, addresses, partial card numbers, and the types of cards used. It remains to see how or if Bethesda will make up with its customers for this particular goof. For the moment, here's a gif of their likely internal strategy. Since the initial reporting of this security breach, Bethesda has released two statements about its internal investigation into the matter: We experienced an error with our customer support website that allowed some customers to view support tickets submitted by a limited number of other customers during a brief exposure window. Upon discovery, we immediately took down the website to fix the error. We are still investigating this incident and will provide additional updates as we learn more. During the incident, it appears that the user name, name, contact information, and proof of purchase information provided by a limited number of customers on their support ticket requests may have been viewable by other customers accessing the customer support website for a limited time, but no full credit card numbers or passwords were disclosed. We plan to notify customers who may have been impacted. Bethesda takes the privacy of our customers seriously, and we sincerely apologize for this situation. After a brief investigation, Bethesda updated the community again with a statement you can read below: As previously reported, on December 5, 2018, we experienced an error with our Customer Support website that resulted in the exposure of a limited number of customer support tickets. Upon discovery, we immediately took down the Customer Support website, remediated the error and restored the Customer Support website. We have cunducted further investigation and analysis of this incident and would like to provide our Bethesda community with an update. From our investigation, we have learned that, on December 5, 2018 there was a brief period of time during which customers accessing our Customer Support website may have been able to view the customer support tickets submitted by other customers during this same time period. Based on our current investigation, we believe this exposure window lasted approximately 45 minutes. During this exposure window, fewer than 123 customer support tickets were submitted and may have been partially or fully viewed by others accssing the Customer Support website. Of those 123 tickets, it appears that no more than 65 customer support tickets contained personal data that may have been exposed. Upon review of the exposed customer support tickets, we have confirmed that no user account passwords or full credit card numbers were included. The personal data exposed within the customer support tickets included: name, user name and contact information (e.g. email, address and phone number), if submitted by a customer as part of a customer support ticket proof of purchase information provided by a limited number of customers, related to game purchases from third party retailers We are in the process of contacting customers who may have been impacted. We greatly value and appreciate our Bethesda community. Again, we sincerely apologize for this situation. How do you feel about Fallout 76 after all these kerfuffles and a rocky launch for the title?

  11. It fixed thanks for the assist
  12. Thanks all, we are having the team looking into to this issue. We'll let you know via social channels once it has been resolved. Thank you all for your patience!
  13. Welp, looks like this is a known issue:
  14. I just noticed that it is a known issue via ExtraLife Twitter, and they are working on it. http://twitter.com/ExtraLife4Kids/status/1070744205461467137
  15. @herobyclicking Is it possible to get some help with this?
  16. The page didn't update. Looking at the "Your Page" link you can see it calling the donordrive API (both in the URL and in page elements if you inspect in your browser). However if you look at the "Donations" page you see the most recent information that's updating near real time. It looks like this is calling Extra-Life's API. This is the same API used by the "Extra Life Helper" application you can download in the "Resources" section. If you configure that (just edit the values in the .html file) it seems to be fine. But, as I was writing this up I noticed that the Helper was also reverting to the old number and then bouncing back after a refresh so it looks like everything is going through Donor Drive? All I can really say for sure at this point is that the "Your Page" link and the obs overlay are inaccurate, but the Helper java app is working. Can we get this in front of an Extra-Life team member?
  17. We are currently doing an Extra Life stream and everything has the wrong total amount! When I use the Donation Drive API, its says we are still at $3. https://www.extra-life.org/api/participants/299893 Our donation page says we are still at $3. https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.participant&participantID=299893 To me, this must be a server issue. We are using StreamElements for the overlay, and it usually displays $3, and rarely shows the current amount (over $200). Seems like an issue where some servers in a cluster has stale data. Please help! It has been wrong for over an hour now.
  18. Probgoblin what did you do to interact with the API?
  19. What exactly did you do to get your page to update?
  20. Okay, after a bit of further research it looks like it's the donordrive API that isn't updating. Playing with stuff that interacts directly with Extra Life's API I can get accurate information.
  21. I'm also experiencing this issue. My fundraising page ( https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.participant&participantID=306734) is not keeping up with my donations received page. If I had to guess I would say this is an API issue as it's not updating my ticker (https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.streamingOverlay&eventID=539&participantID=306734) either. I noticed this last night, which is not great as our marathon stream is tomorrow...
  22. Our local AHL team is sponsoring a Game Night, with a portion of the proceeds going to Extra Life! https://springfieldthunderbirds.formstack.com/forms/videogame
  23. Team, I need a little bit of help. Yesterday I made a donation to my team page https://www.extra-life.org/participant/darthgator . In my dashboard it's telling me that I have raised $22 dollars but on my main page it is telling me that I have raised $20. Is there anyway to update the raised amount or is my account experiencing an issue?

    Humble Bundle - Microsoft Sale | Humble Store https://www.humblebundle.com/store/promo/microsoft-sale?partner=144206
  25. According to Brazilian entertainment website PremierLine, Paramount Pictures debuted a teaser trailer for the upcoming 2019 Sonic the Hedgehog film at the São Paulo Comic Con. The teaser hasn't quite made its way online just yet, though there are some interesting details from PremierLine's account of both the teaser itself and the audience reaction to it. The teaser begins with a close up on the face of Sonic which the site compares to the stylings of the upcoming Detective Pikachu film. It's "textured and realistic" which... I'm not sure if that's what fans of Sonic the Hedgehog are looking for in their zippy hero flick, but maybe I'm off-base with that assessment. After the close up, Sonic begins running and breaks the sound barrier with a boom to conclude the teaser. It's not much to go on. Interestingly, the PremierLine describes the audience as "agitated" which doesn't sound good. However, that could also be a poor translation, so we'll have to wait and see for ourselves. Supposedly the teaser will drop for other regions later today. The Sonic the Hedgehog film will be hitting the big screen on November 14, 2019. Is a realistically styled Sonic the Hedgehog something you want in your live-action Sonic film? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments.

  27. Up until yesterday, Destiny 2 players were encountering a certain bug when trying to complete the Inverted Spire strike mission. Under certain conditions Protheon, the Modular Mind, would grow to over three times its original size making for one of the most unexpected and hilarious encounters in the game. Unfortunately the most recent update to Destiny 2 prevents Protheon from attaining his previous gains. The normal sized Protheon is still bigger than the player, but not awe-inducingly big. This has caused some fans to jokingly take up the hashtag #BringBackBigBoy as a way of requesting that the oversized alien come back in some form or fashion. We will see if Bungie decides to include some Bigboi easter eggs in future patches, which might not be as far fetched as one might think. Their response to the fans was to tweet out a video of the glitch in action and roll with the Bigboi name. "This week we fixed an issue where Protheon, Modular Mind, the boss of the Inverted Spire strike, grew three times his normal size. You asked for video evidence so here's your "bigboi" in action," read their tweet on the subject, followed by some jokes in the replies about how big the robot had become.
