Pikmin 3 Deluxe Coming October 30


Originally released for the Wii U, Nintendo announced today that Pikmin 3 Deluxe will come out for the Nintendo Switch on October 30, 2020.

In this title, players will be able to grow a squad of plantlike creatures known as Pikmin as they traverse the strange world of planet PNF-404 and find food for their home planet. Wielding five different types of Pikmin, players can either play the title solo or with a friend to overcome obstacles and defeat whatever creatures stand in their way. Different Pikmin have different abilities; for instance, winged Pikmin can fly and blue Pikmin can breathe underwater.

When players aren’t off collecting food and saving the world, they can try out Pikmin 3 Deluxe’s Mission mode to accomplish goals like collecting items or defeating enemies. Another mode in the title, Bingo Battle, tasks players with using Pikmin to retrieve items on your bingo card before your opponent.

New to the Nintendo Switch version of the game are multiple difficulty modes for players to utilize, new side-story missions that feature Olimar and Louie, and every piece of DLC from the original release.

“Launching Mortal Shell worldwide is a dream come true. Our commitment to our fans is to create a soulslike game that is authentic, uncompromising and unrelenting. We were humbled by the popularity of the beta and we closely studied the feedback we received to create something that we are incredibly proud of.”

Playstack chief executive Harvey Elliott added:

“Mortal Shell is already achieving the kind of pre-release metrics that would turn heads at any publisher, be it indie or triple-A. I am delighted that Playstack has delivered a publishing and marketing campaign that ensures the game gains the exposure and response it truly deserves. More than anything I can’t wait for fans around the world to finally play it from August 18th.”

The title will release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store. Note that the Steam release will come out later in 2021.

Make Yourself In-Demand in a Post-COVID World With These Skills

If the death toll of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is not giving you serious bouts of depression, here’s something scarier: For the past month, 10% of the US workforce, or close to 15 million people do not have jobs anymore, also thanks to the pandemic. As of the end of April, over 26 million people have looked into unemployment benefits, and the figure is not showing any signs of decline. This is millions of us who are struggling on multiple fronts: how to stay healthy, how to pay the bills, and how to keep sane with everything that’s going on.

With the job market at its rockiest in history, laid-off employees may want to use this lockdown period as an opportunity to reassess themselves in terms of their careers, what they really want to do as work, what their skills are, what the job market needs, and what skills they can develop to make themselves more “marketable” when the “new normal” kicks in.

The same goes for you, still working reader. You may be “secure” in your current job, but with the way the world economy is going, no one is dispensable. The business and commercial landscape is evolving, all the more because of the COVID-19 crisis. Demands from companies are changing, and if you plan to stick around in the employed sector of the economy, you need to keep your skillset updated to these demands. It doesn’t matter if you are “not so technical” and past your prime; if you want to stay employed, you have to reskill, upskill, and get your available skills in line with what the market needs.  What skills are these? Take note of these skills that you need to acquire as soon as possible:

 

Up your critical thinking and problem-solving skills

According to a Society for Human Resource Management survey, the top soft skill that is absent among candidates according to 37% of employers is critical thinking and problem solving. The chance of someone with demonstrated problem solving and critical thinking skills getting hired is very high, as they are valued for providing options and solutions when companies face problems such as the current one everyone is facing.

Employers say they need a workforce fully equipped with skills beyond the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic to grow their businesses. These skills include critical thinking and problem solving, according to a 2010 Critical Skills Survey by the American Management Association and others.

(Via: https://www.dol.gov/odep/topics/youth/softskills/problem.pdf)

 

Up your social media and digital marketing skills

With the current lockdown forcing businesses to shift to methods that do not require physical contact and the near future most probably seen to continue with this, efforts to encourage consumers to buy things have also shifted to online and digital.  Thus, in-demand skills involve search engine marketing (marketing that will allow your business to shine in Google and other search engines), search engine optimization (marketing that will allow your online assets (website, social media) to be optimized so that your business will rank high on search engines), and email marketing.

While certain industries like Travel and Hospitality and Retail were hit very hard and it felt like they may take a while to restart, many other industries it

How to Install and Configure Checkmk on CentOS 8 / RHEL 8

Developed in Python & C++ languages, Checkmk is an open-source monitoring server that is an improvement of Nagios operating system with enhanced plugins and monitoring capabilities. Checkmk uses agents to collect and ship remote systems’ metrics to the server. The agents are available for both Linux and Windows systems in 32 & 64-bit architectures.

Checkmk is used in monitoring applications, servers and even cloud infrastructure such as AWS and Azure. In this guide, we will walk you through how to install and configure Checkmk on CentOS 8 and later on, see how you can add both Linux and Windows hosts to checkmk server for monitoring.

We will install Checkmk using the OMD (Open Monitoring Distribution) bundle. This bundle ships with Nagios and all the necessary plugins required for monitoring various services.

Lab Setup details for Checkmk

This will be our set up

  • Checkmk Server – CentOS 8
  • Host 1 – CentOS  8
  • Host 2 – Windows Server 2019

Step 1) Update the system

To start off, it’s always advisable to update your package lists to start on a clean slate. Therefore, log in to the Checkmk server and run the off command below.

$ sudo dnf update -y

Once the update is completed successfully and reboot the system once.

Step 2) Install prerequisite packages

Once the update is complete, you need to install a couple of packages for the installation of Checkmk monitoring tool to go smoothly.

First, you need to install EPEL. This is short for Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux. This is a package repository that provides additional packages that are not present in the default AppStream repositories for CentOS 8. This will prove beneficial as some of the packages required by OMD are contained in EPEL.

To install the EPEL repository, execute the command:

$ sudo dnf install epel-release

install-epel-release-centos8-rhel8

Press ‘y’ on the keyboard and hit ENTER to proceed with the installation.

Next, ensure that you install xinetd and OpenSSL packages. Therefore, run the command:

$ sudo dnf install xinetd openssl -y

Also, ensure that Python 3 is installed (It comes preinstalled by default on CentOS 8). In case it is not installed on your CentOS 8 / RHEL 8 system then run following command to install it,

$ sudo dnf install python3 -y

Run following command to verify the python version

[[email protected] ~]$ python3 -V
Python 3.6.8
[[email protected] ~]$

Don not forget to install ‘graphiz-gd’ package from PowerTools repository, run the following dnf command

$ sudo dnf --enablerepo=PowerTools install graphviz-gd -y

Step 3) Set SELinux and firewall rules for checkmk

SELinux is a kernel security module that enhances the security of your CentOS 8 and RHEL 8 system. Set the following selinux rule to allow web server to access network interfaces,

$ sudo setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1

Now allow http service or its port in firewall, run

$ sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-service=http --permanent
$ sudo firewall-cmd --reload

Note: You can skip this only if Selinux and firewalld is disabled on your system.

Step 4) Installing Checkmk monitoring tool

With all the prerequisites out of the way, it’s time now to install Checkmk First, download the RPM package from the Official site.

$ wget https://checkmk.com/support/1.6.0p14/check-mk-raw-1.6.0p14-el8-38.x86_64.rpm

Download-check-mk-raw-package-centos8-wget-coomand

Once downloaded install Checkmk rpm package with …

The Darkside Detective 2 Now Published By Akupara Games

Story 409451412

Akupara Games is adding The Darkside Detective 2 and its predecessor to their library of games according to a press release on Tuesday. Akupara Games is already known for publishing indie games such as Mutazione and Rain World. Through a publishing deal, they now also publish The Darkside Detective, a pixelated, quirky take on horror and mystery. This deal will give The Darkside Detective new opportunities, including ports to new platforms.

 

The Darkside Detective released in 2017 to some fairly positive critic reviews, but its true value seemed to be found by players. It currently has 94% positive reviews on Steam out of hundreds of reviews total. It’s highly regarded for its humor, but it’s short playthrough time seemed to put some people off. The Darkside Detective 2 will hopefully be able to bring a fuller experience while keeping up with the original game’s personality.

 

 

The Darkside Detective 2 met and far exceeded the goal of its Kickstarter campaign back in 2018, raising €42,750. Since then, developer Spooky Doorway has been good about updating its community every month or so on the game’s progress. The June update asserted that just about everything had been completed and that polishing and testing would be their next priorities. Unfortunately, the organizing of this publishing deal will push back the release date for The Darkside Detective 2 to Q1 2021.

 

Akupara’s role seems to be finding “new opportunities and audiences for both seasons as well as helping us port to new platforms…” They also will help in providing new and better merchandise, administrative support, and QA testing. This “frees us up to focus on development,” according to Spooky Doorway’s Kickstarter update posted on Tuesday. Akupara intends for The Darkside Detective to serve as a key title to assist in their “[shift] towards a catalog of spooky and narrative-focused adventure and horror games…” This statement comes from Akupara CEO David Logan on the direction of Akupara and how The Darkside Detective fits into it.

How To Push And Pull In Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout

How To Push In Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout
There isn’t a ton of options for what you can do in Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout, but you can push and pull. Check out this guide to find out how to push and pull in Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout. Just be careful not to fall off yourself when trying to eliminate someone else.

How To Push And Pull In Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout

In order to push and pull on players in Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout, you will have to hold R2 down near a player. You will hold your hands out and attempt to grab anyone near you. If you see a white circle, that means they are close enough to be grabbed. You will then have to hold the button until you connect with the play and they will be grabbed. Keep holding and you can either pull back to pull them, or push forward to push them. You do have to be pretty close to grapple, and grabbing does slow you down, so be ready for that.

I personally like to grab players when a ball or obstacle is coming to get them caught. It is really useful in the fruit dropping one because it is easy to get people blasted by he fruit or the log. Be careful in that one though, you can easily be dragged as well. Pushing is a little bit harder since you need a ledge to push someone off. If you push too hard, you fall off as well. Don’t be greedy with the push or the pull and you will be okay. Get greedy and 9 times out of 10 you will die as well.

Check back soon for more Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout guides.

Fall Guys Gets “Behind the Schemes” Video


Now available for the PlayStation 4 and PC, learn more about the crew behind Fall Guys with the “Behind the Schemes” video featuring Mediatonic.

Creative Director Jeff mentioned that he came up with the name of “Fall Guys” after originally getting pitched the name “Fall Gauntlet.” However, Lead Designer Joe mentioned how he was the one who thought of the concept after watching a lot of Takeshi’s Castle when he was younger. He mentioned that you never know what combination of weird and insane rounds you are going to get, and that a lot of the initial level ideas came from that.

Other topics include a special delivery to the Mediatonic studio, the most iconic level in the game (Fall Mountain), how the design of the characters came to be, the work that went into its level design, and how there is no sort of blueprint to create something along these lines.

You can watch the video below:

Fall Guys – Behind the Schemes (Mediatonic)
