Opinion: enough with claiming the world’s fastest autofocus

Today, the focus seems to be on focus itself – more specifically, just how promptly an autofocus system can spring to life and get a lock on the subject you’re shooting. What we now see is a suspiciously high number of cameras with the words 'world’s fastest autofocus system' somewhere in their press release. The very first paragraph of the press release claims it has the world’s fastest autofocus, but you have to work your way to the small print right at the end to understand exactly what Canon

Kingdom Hearts 3: Why It Doesn’t Have Marvel or Star Wars Worlds

We now know why Star Wars and Marvel weren’t included in Kingdom Hearts 3, despite fan demand. In an interview included in the Kingdom Hearts 3 Ultimania book, a Japan-only release, game director Tetsuya Nomura explained why Marvel and Star Wars aren’t included in Kingdom Hearts 3. After all, it’s possible that future Kingdom Hearts games could very well include worlds based on Marvel and Star Wars. This would potentially open the door for Star Wars worlds and characters to appear in a Kingdom H

Epic sued over Fortnite Save the World’s ‘predatory’ loot Llamas

Epic Games is being sued yet again over Fortnite, but for once it's not because of funky dance emotes. "Because Fortnite Save the World’s game progression is inextricably linked to loot progression, players are pushed to keep seeking better loot to progress in the game. Accordingly, Epic designed Fortnite Save the World to effectively limit a player’s ability to progress within the game without spending money on loot boxes," the lawsuit claims. "The scheme plays out perfectly to the benefit of E

A Weezer-themed island has appeared in Fortnite … for some reason

The world’s biggest game teamed up with the world’s biggest movie franchise for a one-of-a-kind Thanos game mode; that was pretty cool. Electronic musician Marshmello once held an in-game concert in Fortnite, a combination that makes perfect sense given the visible overlap in audiences. Today, though, Epic Games has released the most baffling combination of 2019 thus far: Weezer and Fortnite. In addition to introducing a new volcano-filled season to the world, Epic Games has also placed a jukebo
