The Donkey Kong Timeline Is Truly Disturbing
Merrit Kopas describes a (hypothetical) Donkey Kong canon, and hypothesizes on why we are drawn to such things: "Today, achievements are ubiquitous, games can be easily pulled apart at the level of code by players to reveal their secrets, and reliable Japanese-to-English translations for all news of major titles are easy to come by—making it trivial to check the legitimacy of any claim about a released game’s actual content. But the human mind is not content to sit back and enjoy this state of affairs. If the code of games has been thoroughly mapped and catalogued, then the mind has found something more ephemeral to ponder: narrative."

The Xbox One has a serious exclusive games problem - Polygon
Some of the names being thrown around as possible acquisitions by Microsoft are, frankly, astounding, even unthinkable. But the fact that they are doing the rounds is instructive. The most recent one we heard (from a reliable source close to Microsoft) was, in fact, Electronic Arts. We also heard a whisper about Valve and about Korean outfit PUBG Corp., which Microsoft last year signed to a timed exclusive for its hit survival shooter, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Meet the Galaxy S9: Your Best Look at Samsung's Next Phone
The primary lens, however, should be a significant upgrade over the S8’s camera system, which itself was mostly unchanged from the Galaxy S7. The new shooter will feature an adjustable aperture, with the ability to transition from f/2.4 to f/1.5 on the fly, the latter of which should be the widest of any smartphone camera upon release. Its video capabilities will reportedly see a boost too, thanks to a new slow-motion mode that, according to Blass, automatically begins recording at 480 frames per second during rapid movement.

Galaxy S9 Could Steal iPhone X's Biggest Feature
the news is encouraging given that we already know Qualcomm is packing its upcoming Snapdragon 845 chipset with depth sensing capabilities. Galaxy S devices typically launch with Qualcomm processors in North America and Samsung’s Exynos silicon elsewhere around the world, so if the company does decide the time is right for 3D facial recognition, both chips will be equipped for the task. It would make the "Reimagined Camera" slogan Samsung has apparently chosen for the Galaxy S9 make a whole lot more sense.

Apple Targets Rear-Facing 3-D Sensor for 2019 iPhone - Bloomberg
Apple is evaluating a different technology from the one it currently uses in the TrueDepth sensor system on the front of the iPhone X, the people said. The existing system relies on a structured-light technique that projects a pattern of 30,000 laser dots onto a user’s face and measures the distortion to generate an accurate 3-D image for authentication. The planned rear-facing sensor would instead use a time-of-flight approach that calculates the time it takes for a laser to bounce off surrounding objects to create a three-dimensional picture of the environment.
