Street Fighter Characters Turned into Photorealistic 'Real Humans' by Google AI
Capcom’s leading man Ryu as well as the rest of the Street Fighter bunch have been featured in different games and platforms across their career as iconic video game characters. Ryu himself has had a long journey from the original 1987’s Street Fighter to being tweaked to fit more recent titles such as Fortnite and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. But these pale in comparison to what Google AI has done. Twitter user @Siberian_644 made use of the powerful Google AI to render these iconic characters into the flesh.
Meet the Playdate: A Monochrome Video Game Console With a Crank
The Playdate is a handheld video game console that just went up for preorder this year, but the design might make you think that it released in 1989.The hardware has it's quirks, including a crank on the side for potential gameplay mechanics (fishing, maybe?) and a tiny amount of RAM (1/1000 the amount on the Steam Deck at 16 Megabytes). The way that games are played on the Playdate is unusual too. According to the website, games are released once each week, with two each "New Game Day". You can still sideload games, though. Developers will probably have fun making games that fit within the limitations of the platform. The price may seem steep for a limited console though, at $170 for preorders. But who knows, this may enter a new type of console into the market and allow small developers such as Panic! (the creators of the Playdate) to get into hardware.Image Credit: Panic!#console #playdate #videogame #panic #retro
