The Register - November 19, 2018 - 10:28pm
We don't think so either, but config file format is getting harder to avoid

Activision ignores accessibility guidelines, skips Spyro subtitles

Ars Technica - November 19, 2018 - 9:03pm

More than 35 minutes of Spyro Reignited Trilogy cut scenes, none of which can be enjoyed by deaf or hard-of-hearing gamers (or those with the TV on mute).

Last week's release of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy disappointed many, including deaf and hard-of-hearing gamers, by not including subtitles in the games' many spoken cut scenes. Now, Activision's justification for that decision is angering many for seeming insensitivity to the needs of the community.

An Activision spokesperson gave the following statement to British site GamePitt when asked about the issue (the company was not immediately available to respond to a request for comment from Ars Technica):

When Toys For Bob set out to make an awesome game collection, there were certain decisions that needed to be made throughout the process. The team remained committed to keep the integrity and legacy of Spyro that fans remembered intact. The game was built from the ground up using a new engine for the team (Unreal 4) and was localized in languages that had not previously been attempted by the studio. While there’s no industry standard for subtitles, the studio and Activision care about the fans' experience especially with respect to accessibility for people with different abilities, and will evaluate going forward.

As GameCritics' Brad Gallaway phrased it on Twitter, many are taking the statement as Activision "basically saying 'we evaluated whether it was worth the cost and effort to keep Deaf and HH players happy, and we decided that it wasn't.'"

Dealmaster: A whole bunch of early Black Friday deals have gone live

Ars Technica - November 19, 2018 - 8:50pm

Enlarge (credit: TechBargains)

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share.

Hoo boy, is this a busy time for the Dealmaster. Although Black Friday is still a few days away, we're coming at you a day ahead of schedule this week, because several stores have already made a bunch of their deals available today. Right now, those include a PlayStation 4 and Spider-Man bundle for $200, $100 off Microsoft's Xbox One X, Amazon's new Fire TV Stick 4K streamer for $35, TV deals from Sony, LG, and Vizio, Samsung's Galaxy S9 for $520, and much more.

Frankly, the amount of time the Dealmaster has already spent staring at his laptop screen this week is unhealthy. But soldier on we must, since the discounts will only pick up as the week rolls on. Melodramatics aside, we've got a great assortment today, so have a look below and see if you can't get any holiday shopping done early.
