Three days of pain: how I built a gaming PC https://www.theguardian.com/games/2021/apr/15/how-i-built-a-gaming-pc For an enthusiastic computer nerd, it should have been a fun, fulfilling, money-saving distraction during lockdown. Then the error messages started

It’s just like building Lego, they said. Enjoy the process, they said. You’ll have such a feeling of accomplishment when it’s finished. This is what friends and colleagues told me when I set out to build a PC. It did not quite go that way.

It seems more and more people are choosing to construct their own gaming machines rather than buying them already made. It’s cheaper (in theory), you get to choose the exact specifications, and it’s something to do while you’re stuck at home in lockdown. Even Superman actor Henry Cavill has been getting in on the act, making a video of himself constructing his new machine while wearing a really tight vest. I thought it would be a fun thing to do with my 13-year-old son as a sort of Easter holiday treat. We’re both nerds – what could go wrong?

BEGIN SLIDESHOW New Mortal Kombat featurette teases ‘sickeningly violent’ fight scenes

Ahead of the film’s U.S. debut next week, Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new featurette for the highly-anticipated Mortal Kombat reboot, providing viewers new glimpses of the film’s epic fighting choreography that gives justice to the beloved video game’s iconic fatalities. The video teases the match-ups between characters such as Kano and Sonya Blade, Liu Kang and Kabal, and Mileena and Cole Young. It also highlighted the main cast’s impressive athleticism, especially with Lewis Tan and Joe Taslim’s portrayals of Cole Young and Sub-Zero, respectively. Check out the video in the player below!

Mortal Kombat was originally scheduled to debut this Friday, but was pushed back to April 23 earlier this month, though the Simon McQuoid-directed film is now playing in international theaters.

The diverse international cast of Mortal Kombat includes Joe Taslim as Sub Zero; Ludi Lin as Liu Kang; Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade; Josh Lawson as Kano; Tadanobu Asano as Raiden; Mehcad Brooks as Jackson “Jax” Bridges; Chin Han as Shang Tsung; Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion; Max Huang as Kung Lao; Sisi Stringer as Mileena; and Lewis Tan.

Inspired by Midway Games’ best-selling video game that was based on the original idea by Ed Boon ad John Tobias, the film centers around MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?

Directed by Simon McQuoid from a screenplay written by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham, the film is produced by James Wan (The Conjuring universe) and Todd Garner (Into the Storm, Tag) with Larry Kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear and Jeremy Stein serving as executive producers. The creative team is also comprised of director of photography Germain McMicking (True Detective, Top of the Lake: China Girl), production designer Naaman Marshall (Underwater, Servant), editor Scott Gray (Top of the Lake, Daffodils), and costume designer Cappi Ireland (Lion, The Rover).

SOPA Images / Contributor/Getty Images

  • If your PS4 controller won't charge, you can try swapping out the charging cable or checking the charging port.
  • You can also try resetting and re-pairing your controller, or performing a power cycling on the PS4.
  • The issue may also be with the charging port or the charging cable.
  • Visit Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.

There are many reasons why your PS4 controller may not be charging. And those reasons can range from the minor, like cable issues or dust, to more major problems, which might mean you need to buy a brand new controller.

Before you go out and replace a finicky PS4 controller, it's always a good idea to first do some troubleshooting to see if you can get your device to charge again - which could be easier than you think.

Here are five troubleshooting tips to get you back to gaming sooner.

Plug your PS4 into your laptop or another device to charge it playstation controller PC gaming desktop set-up Make sure that the charging cable is inserted correctly into the outlet at the top of the controller and your computer.

Sometimes controllers have difficulty charging directly from the PS4, but testing out the controller by plugging it into another device — like your Mac, PC, or Android — can help you narrow down the reasons why it's not charging.

If it's not charging from another source, then you know that it's not the PS4 itself that's causing the problem. 

Swap out the charging cable PS4/Playstation 4 controller charger You might need to switch out the charging cord if your PS4 controller isn't charging properly.

Amazon

The issue may not be with the controller itself but with the charging cable. Try a different cable or try using that cable to charge another controller.

You can also check the cable for physical signs of damage such as fraying on the cord or built-up grime in the plug.

Built-up dust or grit may be interrupting the power flow and keeping your controller from charging. A quick pass with a wooden toothpick or compressed air may help.

Reset and re-pair your controller ps41 Use a toothpick or bobby pin to press into the small hole on the back of your PS4 controller to reset it.

Sony

Go to the Settings menu on your PS4 and under "Devices," remove all devices from the list. Then, on your controller, press something into the small hole on the underside of the controller and hold it for five seconds. A toothpick or bobby pin, for example, may do the trick.

Finally, re-sync the controller to the PS4 using the PS button. If you have issues re-pairing your PS4 controller, see our article on how to connect your controller to your PS4.

Conduct a power cycling on your PS4 PlayStation 4 PS4 controller Turning off your console and controller, unplugging them, and restarting them may do the trick.

Turn off your PS4 console and controller, and unplug the PS4's power cord from the outlet. Wait 5 to 10 minutes, and with the PS4 still unplugged, hold down the power button for 30 seconds to drain all its leftover energy. Then, plug the PS4 back in, turn it on, and see if the issue has been fixed. 

If your controller still isn't charging after troubleshooting, check if it's still under warranty with Sony or the retailer you purchased it from. 

If so, you may be able to get a replacement, or swap out some of the hardware, without having to shell out money for a brand new controller.

Roblox jumps after striking deal with Hasbro for digital Nerf and Monopoly products http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/alleyinsider/silicon_alley_insider/~3/zaMGWM2Oulk/roblox-stock-price-hasbro-nerf-monopoly-deal-virtual-gaming-platform-2021-4 "Jailbreak' is a popular title on the Roblox platform.

Roblox Image/JailBreak

  • Roblox shares rose about 9% on Tuesday after the online gaming platform said it reached a digital product deal with Hasbro.
  • The Roblox platform will introduce Nerf-blasters and a version of the Monopoly board game.
  • Hasbro shares gained after the deal, terms of which were not disclosed.
  • See more stories on Insider's business page.

Roblox stock leapt Tuesday, with toymaker Hasbro reaching a deal to launch some digital products with the online games platform.

The deal will feature a range of Roblox-inspired Nerf blasters and a Roblox version of the classic board game Monopoly. No financial terms of the agreement were released in a joint statement.

Roblox shares bounced up as much as 8.9% to an intraday high of $81.70 then pared the gain to 7.8%. The stock began trading last month on the New York Stock Exchange and spiked up during its trading debut.

A platform popular with kids, Roblox allows players to jump from games created by other people or to build games themselves. Hasbro shares on Tuesday were up 2%.

The Nerf blasters will include a redeemable code for players to use a virtual blaster on their avatars and each Monopoly: Roblox 2022 edition game will include a redeemable code for a virtual item.

The products will add to Roblox's lineup of titles which includes "Adopt Me," in which players care for virtual pets. Tuesday's statement said NERF later this year will launch its own branded experience on Roblox, with detail set for release later this spring.

The PlayStation 5 is getting its first major system update this week, but one much-requested feature is still missing http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/alleyinsider/silicon_alley_insider/~3/bapSGRlk024/first-playstation-5-system-update-when-what-is-it-2021-4 Sony's PlayStation 5.

Sony

  • Just about six months after launch, the PlayStation 5 is getting its first major update.
  • The software update adds a variety of quality of life features.
  • Unfortunately, a highly-requested feature - adding additional storage space - is still in the works.
  • Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories.

Just over six months after the launch of the PlayStation 5, Sony is giving the console its first major software update - but it still doesn't address the core issue PS5 users have been complaining about.

On Wednesday, April 14, the first major update is scheduled to roll out with a slew of additions and changes to the wildly popular game console.

Prime among those changes is support for USB game storage - a solution intended for users running into the PS5's limited storage space. The PlayStation 5, like Microsoft's Xbox Series S and X consoles, uses a new type of solid-state storage which enables much faster game loads. But games like the latest "Call of Duty" can gobble up huge portions of precious storage space, and PS5 users have been forced to decide which games to keep on their consoles.

Since PlayStation 5 games cannot be played from external storage, the addition of USB storage is intended as a temporary solution to a longer term problem. Rather than having to delete games to make space for new ones, PS5 users will be able to move a game temporarily to a USB storage device.

Sony has said that support for additional solid-state storage is in the works for the PlayStation 5, but no date has been given.

PlayStation 5 update, April 2021 Another such addition in the update is the ability to share a gameplay stream with a friend on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5.

Sony

"It is faster to reinstall PS5 games from USB extended storage than to re-download or copy them from a disc," Sony platform planning and management senior VP Hideaki Nishino said on the PlayStation blog. "It's a great way to extend the storage capabilities of your PS5 console, and you can seamlessly copy your PS5 games back to the console's internal storage when you're ready to play."

Beyond the storage changes, a variety of smaller "quality of life" features are being added in the update: The ability to share your screen with friends over the internet, pre-downloads of game updates while the console is resting, and the ability to change which games show up in your game library are just a few.

Check out the full list of changes right here.
