๐Ÿ’Ž Weekly Gems (16 – 22 May 2022)

I thought it’d be nice to come back to this series. It should at least get me into the rhythm of writing and that’s a good enough reason, to be honest.

The idea is simple: I gather interesting links to websites, shops, video game trailers and news. Anything that I found worth reading/looking over/buying. Be prepared for frontend coding, nice books and usually some game-related content as well.

ยป Scrimba.com

Are you trying to learn React? Or maybe you’re starting your frontend journey and need some HTML/CSS lessons? Please take a look at Scrimba and their Discord! Amazing community, loads of movement and everything look pretty!

What’s Scrimba? It’s an interactive way to learn by looking at someone else code. How cool is that?!

ยป 40 Years of TASCHEN

I don’t have them yet, but I’m totally getting at least a few. In these A5-sized albums with at least 250 pages, you’ll find works by artists like HR Giger, Vermeer, Bosch or the Grimm Brothers. They also have ~A4 versions and ever bigger ones, but being bookshelf-conscious, I’m going for the compact-ish size. Shipping over 75 EUR is free.

ยป Report: EA Looking To Sell Or Merge

I hope it’s not gonna be Sony. I wouldn’t like Take-Two to be the merger. Xbox is always a good choice, but that would be too much. We will know soon I guess. Kotaku reports that they’re chasing companies like Apple or Disney, so basically outside of the gaming industry. That’s good.

ยป EA to cut customer support staff in US and Ireland

In the meantime, they’re also laying off about a hundred support workers from US and Ireland. It sadly means that we may lose the great phone help centre to an outsourced one.

ยป TrackerNetwork now supports Battlefield 2042

If you want to measure your… stats from Battlefield 2042, now you can! It’s not perfect yet, but it’s a very good start. There are classic values like K/D, time spent in-game and number of kills with specialists and specific weapons/vehicles. Sadly, it doesn’t show you (hopefully, yet) how your kills with specific specialist/weapon compares across the network. I’d love to know that I’m the LCMG queen.
