Nostalgic meme remembers the absurd bowling alley animations we all love

TwitterFacebook

Why are bowling animations like this? 

If you’ve ever been bowling, you probably remember the absurd 3D-animated scenes that played after each turn. Sometimes it’s an anthropomorphic pin flashing you a thumbs up after a strike, jerkily rubbing its bowling pin head as if you personally hurt it. Other times an animated bowling ball will fly through the alley and straight into a terribly rendered galaxy. Whether you’re scoring well or not, the most memorable part of the game is often the…

A dating app for literal monsters exposes the bias in our swipes

TwitterFacebook

Sure, online dating is a hellscape. But in this new online dating game, that’s a good thing.

Developer Ben Berman and designer Miguel Perez created a game that seeks to expose the inherent bias that fuels dating app matching algorithms. The pair are winners of Mozilla’s Creative Media Awards, which enabled the work.

The best part of the game, besides the admirable mission and all, is that the game is based around a dating app — for monsters.

What’s next for Westeros? 10 questions for King Bran

TwitterFacebook

We called it. That doesn’t mean we buy it. Still, let’s try to make more sense out of it.

The way Tyrion Lannister told it in the Game of Thrones finale, Bran Stark has the best story in all of Westeros — a story that will help the common folk and the nobles unite behind King Bran the Broken. Ironically, and perhaps in part to keep the ending a surprise, Game of Thrones itself became utterly disinterested in telling Bran’s story — relegating him to season 8′s most persistent background…

Like the rest of the fantasy epic’s final season, it was divisive; some fans found it to be an enthralling example of the series at its best, while others found it to be an unsatisfying and abrupt ending to a major storyline.
