Dealmaster: Take 25 percent off a bunch of popular Nintendo Switch games

Ars Technica - 42 min 22 sec ago

Enlarge (credit: TechBargains)

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a set of deals on high-profile Nintendo Switch games at Walmart and Amazon, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, Splatoon 2, Kirby Star Allies, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Mario Tennis Aces. All of them are 25 percent off, which works out to a $10-15 discount.

Not every game up there will be to everybody's liking—the competitive online focus of Mario Tennis Aces is a far cry from cutesy puzzles of Captain Toad, for instance—and most Switch (or Wii U) owners have probably played at least a few of these already. But if you're in need of something new to play, all the above titles are at least worth checking out. Go have a look at our reviews if you're on the fence about one in particular.

The catch here is that these discounts only apply to the physical copies of each game. That shouldn't be a dealbreaker for most—you'll use up less of the Switch's meager 32GB of internal storage—but it's worth noting that Nintendo just added the ability to share Switch downloads across consoles. Still, given that these games are going for full price in the Nintendo eShop and are tied for new lows here, waiting a couple days and dealing with a cartridge may be worth it.

Guitar Hero TV’s planned shutdown spurs false advertising lawsuit

Ars Technica - 1 hour 49 min ago

Enlarge / Just one of the hundreds of "Guitar Hero TV" songs that will no longer be playable in a few months.

A customer who bought Guitar Hero Live late last year has brought a proposed class-action lawsuit against Activision accusing the publisher of false advertising and other violations regarding the coming December shutdown of the game's online streaming "Guitar Hero TV" (GHTV) mode.

Activision announced that shutdown back in June, and we noted at the time that the move will make 92 percent of the game's playable songs permanently inaccessible. In the federal lawsuit, filed this week in Los Angeles, plaintiff Robert Fishel argues Activision's marketing led him to believe the game would be "playable online indefinitely or, at least, for a reasonable length of time from the date of release."

The lawsuit highlights Guitar Hero Live marketing that describes the Guitar Hero TV mode as "an always-on music video network... running 24-hours a day, seven days a week" with "a continuous broadcast of music videos" and "new videos continually added to the line-up." Marketing materials also promise that "you’ll be able to discover and play new songs all the time."

Video: “Delta V,” our new series on all the happenings in the heavens, is live

During the last decade or so, there has been an incredible amount of money, time, and energy put into revitalizing the launch industry, both in the United States and around the world.

Less than a decade ago, no company had ever developed an orbital rocket on its own and successfully launched a payload into orbit. SpaceX finally accomplished that feat in September 2008, opening the floodgates of private investment. The aerospace world today is radically different as a result, with more than 100 companies now seeking to build orbital rockets of varying size, scope, and capacity.

New Doctor Who trailer shows first female Doctor is still the boss

Ars Technica - 2 hours 39 min ago

Doctor Who is coming back for its 11th season (since the modern reboot) next month, featuring the first-ever female Doctor (Jodie Whittaker). The BBC just released a new trailer, and it's clear from the footage that we've got a delightfully fresh take on the classic series ahead, while still keeping the most iconic elements that have made Doctor Who so enduring.

There were hints here and there over the last few seasons that, while the Doctor might have typically appeared in male form, a female incarnation was certainly possible. Count me among the longtime advocates for a female Doctor, particularly because it opens up an entirely new angle to the storytelling. It's one thing for a white male Time Lord to show up at various points in history. It's quite another for a strange woman to show up in, say, medieval England. So there's an opportunity for new kinds of conflicts and poignant shifts in relationships.

We got a taste of that during David Tennant's tenure as the 10th Doctor. In "Human Nature" and "The Family of Blood," the Doctor takes the guise of a humble schoolteacher in 1913 London to escape detection by the so-called Family of Blood, who are pursuing him across time and space in hopes of draining his life force so they might survive. His companion, Martha, guards his Time Lord essence (in the form of a fob watch), since he will have no recollection of his no-human existence. But Martha is black (and female), which limits her own undercover identity options to that of a lowly maid in the school, scrubbing floors despite her medical degree. And, well, she's treated accordingly.
