Sony may have an atypical PlayStation exclusive in the near future. As it became known, the studio FireSprite, which Sony acquired at the end of last year, is developing a kind of AAA-class horror adventure game.
The game is created on Unreal Engine 5, which means that, among other things, it will probably please the graphic component as well. There are no details about the project yet, it is only worth noting that FireSprite already has experience in creating horror games: in 2018, the studio released The Persistence for VR.
There is also another interesting fact. About a year ago, The Last of Part II level designer Pete Ellis revealed he was directing a “story-driven adventure game” at FireSprite. Probably, it’s just about the upcoming horror.
Game of Thrones sequel created on ChatGPT: George R.R. Martin and other authors are suing OpenAI
Various authors have sued OpenAI for copyright infringement. They accuse the company of using books to train AI models.
The Authors Guild and 17 famous authors such as Jonathan Franzen, John Grisham, George R.R. Martin and Jodi Picoult filed the lawsuit in the Southern District of New York. The plaintiffs hope the lawsuit will be classified as a class action.
According to the complaint, OpenAI “copied plaintiffs’ work wholesale, without permission or review” and fed copyrighted material into large language models.
“The earnings of these authors depend on the works they create. But defendant’s programs jeopardize the ability of science fiction writers to make a living because they allow anyone to create—automatically and freely (or very cheaply)—text that they would otherwise pay writers to create,” the lawsuit states.
The authors added that OpenAI’s programs could result in the creation of derivative works “that are based on, imitate, generalize, or paraphrase their books,” which could harm their market.
The lawsuit also alleges that ChatGPT was used by programmer Liam Swain to “write” sequels to George R.R. Martin’s bestselling novel A Song of Ice and Fire, which was adapted into the popular TV series Game of Thrones. Swain used a neural network to create his own versions of these books, which he posted online.
“Armed, but not dangerous” – Elon Musk, with a pistol in his hands, demanded to be included in Cyberpunk 2077
Billionaire Elon Musk interrupted a recording session for Cyberpunk 2077 to demand his inclusion in the game. This is described in the biography of the billionaire written by journalist Walter Isaacson.
One of the chapters told how he came into the studio with a gun. At this point, the mother of his children, Grimes, was recording her own lines for Cyberpunk 2077. At some point, Musk appeared in the studio and insisted that he get a cameo role. The developers relented and added an NPC similar to him to the game.
“When Grimes was recording the voice of the cyborg pop star she played in the video game Cyberpunk 2077, he showed up at the studio with a two-hundred-year-old pistol and insisted on being given a cameo,” writes Walter Isaacson. “The guys in the studio got nervous.”
Isaacson noted that Musk was passionate about the game Cyberpunk 2077 because he was close to the topic of augmentations for the human body due to his work at the company Neuralink, which works on brain implants.
Previously, Neuralink, a brain chip startup owned by Elon Musk, began accepting applications for volunteers to test a brain implant on patients with paralysis.
Windows 11 update causes havoc, from game crashes to startup failure to blue screen of death
The latest cumulative update to the Windows 11 operating system has caused a number of problems that users are massively complaining about online. Among other things, fans of computer games suffered.
Problems appear after installing the mandatory September 2023 update number KB5030219 for Windows 11 version 22H2.
In some cases, the update leads to the appearance of a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). There have also been cases of general system slowdown, sound glitches, problems with the Start menu, disappearance of tabs in Explorer and network connections, while access to the Internet disappeared some time after installation. There are also complaints about computers not starting after the update.
Gamers complain about performance in games, especially Starfield. One of the victims notes:
After uninstalling the update, Starfield worked fine.
Judging by the reviews, the problem is not related to Nvidia’s GeForce drivers, as initially believed. Users note that problems exist even if the driver has not been updated.
