A Goldsboro internet café wants to nearly triple its number of electronic gaming machines. This week, the Goldsboro City Council held a public hearing on the proposal to allow Longhorn Internet Café on U.S. 117 South, between Arrington Bridge Road and S. George Street, to increase its number of electronic gaming machines from 35 to 101.Goldsboro Planning Director Jennifer Collins explained the applicant was seeking a conditional use permit to allow for fewer paved parking spaces. While there is sufficient room for more parking spaces, the applicant does not wish to pave the site. Therefore the applicant is seeking the modification from city rules allowing them to only provide 52 parking spaces to serve the site when 152 spaces would normally be required.

Why video streaming needs to stop fighting the last consumer war

Article | May 28, 2021

Video streaming services have achieved mainstream engagement, with binge viewing now eclipsing linear TV viewing as the leading form of TV show consumption. While the digital disruptors may revel in their newfound status as the masters of TV consumption, and the TV and film industry are forced to adapt to this new reality, a subtler shift in mindset needs to occur. Streaming services, led by subscription video on demand (SVOD) hegemon Netflix, still operate in the mindset of having a digital native consumer base. For these streaming incumbents, the success of SVOD still rests upon their ability to appeal to younger consumer bases who have a) grown up in a digital environment, and b) are by definition young and eager for new and constantly evolving consumer experiences. Add to this the post-second world war presumption that popular entertainment should always be youth-centric focused, and streaming is still de-facto a youth-orientated proposition.

Stride Is Mirror’s Edge VR In Everything But Name

Article | April 27, 2020

Ever since the Oculus Rift was first introduced, people have wanted a Mirror’s Edge VR game. Years later, Stride looks to deliver where EA hasn’t. The first footage for Stride, which debuted over the weekend, promises essentially a VR doppelganger of DICE’s beloved series. Players hop between rooftops using parkour, avoiding enemy gunfire and taking opponents down as they go. But while the game sounds similar to Mirror’s Edge, it looks practically identical; bleached-white buildings are peppered with vibrantly-highlighted objects you can use for progression.
