CHINA is set to create 'social credit' scores for all of its permanent residents by 2020, according to plans published this week by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform. The credit scores will determine the extent of Chinese people's access to jobs, public services, travel, and even the ability to date. China has been slowly building a social credit score system for around four years now, after the State Council of China published a plan in 2014 to assign scores of 'trustworthiness' to the country's 1.4 billion citizens. Initially, the system that emerged was voluntary, with Chinese people being invited to sign up to receive scores based on what they do in public and online, and on who they associate with. Now, the Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform has announced that it will register all Beijing residents and businesses with the system by 2020, bringing it in line with the Chinese government's plan to make the nationwide system mandatory by … [Read more...] about China promises creepy Black Mirror ‘social credit’ scores for EVERYONE by 2020

Some indie studios are intentionally adding easy-to-unlock trophies to their games in order to boost sales and raise funding for further projects. Talking to Kotaku, Infinite Madaa's Salem Al-Ghanim - the developer behind cross-play enabled Little Adventure on the Prairie, which released on the PlayStation 4 and Vita in February - said that he was advised to include an easy Platinum "with a cheap price" and cross-play to secure enough sales to reinvest funds into the studio's next game. "A friend of mine suggested to release the game on PS4 and Vita and add an easy Platinum to it with a cheap price," said Al-Ghanim, after deciding to port his game from Android. "This way a lot of people buy it and we would get the funding we need for our next game." Al-Ghanim went on to explain that the only requirement to include a platinum trophy was to ensure the game had enough bronze, silver, and gold offerings, too. So that's what he did; though boasting 22 trophies (six bronze, eight silver, … [Read more...] about Games with easy trophies help indie studios “get the funding” needed for future projects

The Destiny 2 1.1.3 update is now live, bringing with it Nightfall Strike scoring and Challenge Cards, emblem variants, changes to auras, a text chat option in public areas for PC players, and—this is the big one for fans of insect munitions—a fix to The Colony exotic grenade launcher that means it will now properly track enemies when the framerate is set higher than 30. The Colony, you see, fires "insectoid robot grenades" that track enemies and explode when they come in proximity. But at higher framerates, they don't track properly, which renders the weapon effectively useless for anyone with a decent gaming rig. Dialing back the framerate clears up the issue, but who wants to do that? (It sounds weird, but it's actually not the first framerate-related problem to come to light: In December of last year, players running the Curse of Osiris expansion at more than 60 fps found that they were being turned into greasy smears by Mercury's gravity cannons.) … [Read more...] about Destiny 2’s latest update fixes The Colony plus adds Nightfall scoring and Challenge Cards
