Pirates! ShowdownFunction introduction
A HERDSMAN tending his flock in a forest lost a Bull-calf from the fold. After a long and fruitless search, he made a vow that, if he could only discover the thief who had stolen the Calf, he would offer a lamb in sacrifice to Hermes, Pan, and the Guardian Deities of the forest. Not long afterwards, as he ascended a small hillock, he saw at its foot a Lion feeding on the Calf. Terrified at the sight, he lifted his eyes and his hands to heaven, and said: "Just now I vowed to offer a lamb to the Guardian Deities of the forest if I could only find out who had robbed me; but now that I have discovered the thief, I would willingly add a full-grown Bull to the Calf I have lost, if I may only secure my own escape from him in safety."Shenji verdict
Though Reason weep, and cry it is thy last.<p>PUBG Mobile is set to launch an all-new map designed specifically for small-scale, rapid-fire matches. Livik, as it's known, spans two kilometres and supports up to a maximum of 40 players at once, so it makes sense that each match will come it at around 15 minutes.</p><p>Speaking to The Verge, producer Rick Li says that "the initiative for this map is bringing more flexibility to those players who have tighter schedules and circumstances to accommodate for."</p><p>The map is based on Nordic terrain and will serve up plenty of neat areas to sightsee in. You can expect a volcano, waterfalls, hot springs, and more. Interestingly, some of these new additions are said to play into the map's faster pace, with, for example, the violent waterfalls washing players away.</p>
"He never had any children of his own, Gilbert--I am positive he hadn't or he would never have written such rubbish. You just can't help talking baby talk to a baby. It comes natural--and it's RIGHT. It would be inhuman to talk to those tiny, soft, velvety little creatures as we do to great big boys and girls. Babies want love and cuddling and all the sweet baby talk they can get, and Little Jem is going to have it, bless his dear itty heartums."

Appear to him as he to me appears,<p>In a Tweet earlier today, developer Red Hook teased the next console port of their acclaimed gothic RPG Darkest Dungeon, playing and portable on the Nintendo Switch.</p><p>No other details were given regarding release dates, but the developers stated that the port is "not very far off."</p><p>Darkest Dungeon is a bleak take on the dungeon crawler, pitting your band of outlaws and outcasts against horrific eldritch horrors and the mental stress of the oppressive dungeon corridors. You'll need to carefully manage the positioning and abilities of your party to survive the game's challenge turn-based battles, while managing resources, sanity, and personalities during exploration.</p><p>"A rich, tough, ingenious dungeon crawler", Darkest Dungeon earned a Gold Award when it came to iPad last month, and you can also find the game on Steam and consoles.</p>
<p>Ravenous Games, the developer behind Random Heroes and the League of Evil trilogy, posted new screenshots of its upcoming iOS and Android game Paranormal Minis.</p><p>Paranormal Minis was announced almost exactly a year ago on the TouchArcade forums.</p><p>Formerly a twin-stick shooter, the game has been undergone some "major design changes," most prominently its transformation into an "action brawler."</p><p>You can view the new screenshots in its TouchArcade thread.</p><p>A release date has still not been announced.</p>
<p>Apple's got another update in store for us soon, this time heavily affecting one of its niftiest features, ARKit, but in a very good way.</p><p>Once it rolls out, ARKit 1.5 will be able to offer more freedom to developers and consumers as it moves from primarily flat surfaces and branches out to posters, doors, and walls. I know that sounds a little weird but bear with me.</p><p>ARKit 1.5 allows developers to transform more objects into cool, interactive experiences, such as posters, signs, and artworks. If you're not very impressed by the idea, just imagine what it could lead to.</p><p>As suggested in Apple's article, if we get to a place where museums and galleries can successfully integrate the technology into their exhibits, it could open up a totally new world of interactive learning.</p><p>Imagine being about to walk around a true-to-life dinosaur in its full form? Or, to get a closer look at some of history's greatest heroes and villains? Hell, even to hop inside the minds of some of the world's maddest and most brilliants artists and inventors.</p><p>More than just looking at it as another way to bring games into 'real life', it's opening up so many doors for education and I'm excited to see where each of them leads.</p><p>Image source: Apple.</p>For these, of force, must your oblations be,
