Jason Godbey. It can be difficult to find time to finish a video game, especially if you only have a few hours a week to play. In our biweekly column we suggest video games that can be started and finished in a weekend. At the start of this year, I wrote about , a first-person puzzle game similar to Myst or Gone Home, though on a much smaller scale. In the game, you are confined to a single attic room where all of the puzzles and storytelling takes place. Discolored is similar, except you are confined to an entire deserted and desaturated desert diner. In Discolored, you play what seems to be some sort of secret agent working to return color to a world that has mostly become monotone due to some strange force. There is a 1960s...

Photo: DANJAQ and MGM / Nicola Dove. Hi everyone, I’m back after a couple weeks away — partly because of the holidays, partly because the trailer selection just wasn’t very good. (I’m sorry, I couldn’t post another Cats trailer). I got to watch a few things during the break though, with the biggest being Joker . There’s something incredible about indie filmmaking styles now being so mainstream that a major comic book movie is able to emulate them. All of Joker feels this way to an extent, but the clearest moments are the occasional sequences that have the camera floating close beside a silent, emotional Joaquin Phoenix, in the oddest of homages to Terrence Malick. I love how the filmmakers are trying to apply that vibe here, but it’s just wa.

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge. Elon Musk’s tweets calling caver Vernon Unsworth, who was involved in the rescue of 13 people from a cave in Thailand, a “pedo guy” are not defamation, a jury found. As a result, Musk will not be liable for damages, according to the ruling. The standard in the case is recklessness, which means Musk didn’t check to see if what he was saying was true before he tweeted it. The jury had to be convinced by a preponderance of the evidence that this was true, a lower standard than “actual malice.” But ultimately, they ruled that Unsworth’s case did not clear that standard. Leaving the courtroom, Musk , “my faith in humanity is restored.”Since Tuesday, the Los Angeles court has heard testimony from Unsworth,

Truth Be Told should be a home run. Its premise — the story of a podcaster revisiting a murder case 20 years after a suspect has been incarcerated — immediately evokes .

If the machine learning-powered text adventure is anything to go by, they’ll be open-ended, ludicrously silly, and bags of fun to play. AI Dungeon 2 isn’t exactly a polished game, but more of a passion project from developer Nick Walton.
