The Game Awards were barely 15 minutes old and already thinking of the holiday season that’s 12 months from now rather than the present. Synth-pop band Chvrches had opened the show with their melancholic song from “Death Stranding,” but this isn’t the Grammy Awards — they were soon overshadowed by a box. More specifically, a monolith. Microsoft unveiled its relatively svelte, speaker-shaped Xbox Series X, due late 2020, the company’s home console follow-up to its Xbox One-branded machines. Only the interactive industry would put a premium on tech over artistry, but if the game biz has long struggled to have an awards show earn the cultural respect of the Academy Awards, it’s largely because the community does marketing better than it does formalities. But show producer Geoff Keighley, whose lifelong mission has been to bring a proper awards show to the game industry and apparently is its only professional to own a tie, has over six years … [Read more...] about Game Awards tease upcoming releases and a new Xbox, but all we want is ‘Untitled Beaker Game’

The NBA said former Commissioner David Stern suffered a sudden brain hemorrhage Thursday and had emergency surgery. The league said in a statement its thoughts and prayers are with the 77-year-old’s family. Stern served 30 years as the NBA’s longest-tenured commissioner before Adam Silver replaced him in 2014. Stern has remained affiliated with the league with the title of commissioner emeritus and has remained active in his other interests, such as sports technology. Stern oversaw the growth of the NBA into a league whose games were televised in more than 200 countries and territories and in more than 40 languages. The league was playing a regular-season game in Mexico City between Dallas and Detroit on Thursday night when it announced the news about Stern. Stern stayed busy after stepping down as commissioner, taking trips overseas on the league’s behalf, doing public speaking and consulting.

Silver Spring, MD -- Riderwood, an Erickson Living developed and managed community in Silver Spring, MD, is a festive place to spend the holidays. Throughout the month of December, the community is alive with the colors, sounds and flavors of the season. In addition to attending the many holiday-themed events put on by Riderwood, residents also do plenty of hosting throughout the holiday season (and all year long). People might think that downsizing for retirement means the end of entertaining family and friends in your home. But sales counselor Debbie Brumbach says that is not the case at Riderwood. "Many of our residents have been the main hosts/hostesses for holidays and family/friend get togethers for many years," Brumbach says. "They want to know that they are still going to have that option while living here at Riderwood." Indeed, residents have the option to host a dinner party in their spacious, modern apartment homes, but living at Riderwood means they have access to the … [Read more...] about Entertaining has never been easier or more greatly at Riderwood
SAN JOSE (AP) — Mika Zibanejad scored the tying and go-ahead goals in less than five minutes during the third period and the New York Rangers spoiled interim coach Bob Boughner’s debut with San Jose by beating the Sharks 6-3 on Thursday night. Artemi Panarin added two insurance goals, including an empty-netter, to give him his first hat trick with New York. Jesper Fast also scored and Alexandar Georgiev made 15 saves to help the Rangers win for the seventh time in 11 games. Tomas Hertl, Logan Couture and Brenden Dillon scored for San Jose but it wasn’t enough to end a losing streak that stretched to six games. Martin Jones made 24 saves. This recent skid led to the decision by general manager Doug Wilson to fire Peter DeBoer for his first midseason coaching change in more than 16 years in charge in San Jose. The Sharks seemed in position to get the spark Wilson was seeking when Dillon ended his 106-game stretch without a goal by scoring the tiebreaker early in the … [Read more...] about Rangers Spoil Boughner’s Debut With 6-3 Win Over Sharks
