Welcome AIntelligence, my old friend
In late March, ChatGPT faced a temporary ban in Italy due to processing users' personal data. It was the only country where this happened, and while I'm not one to believe in conspiracy theories, it certainly raises some questions.
After a month, ChatGPT is back, but now there's a "I'm 18, I can enter" banner that resembles something you'd see on an NSFW website.
Despite this, I believe that AI is an essential tool that has become a part of our daily lives, much like calculators and blenders.
Gone are the days of whipping cream by hand or doing mental math calc like "105:7." AI has revolutionized the way we approach problem-solving and has opened up new possibilities for innovation and progress.
I'm a huge fan of any types of games, not just on pc or console. Whether it's board games, party games, or trivia games, I love them all!
Surprisingly, despite my passion for geeky stuff, my all-time favorite are actually sports games.
I love them not only for the thrill of competition, but also because they offer a unique social experience that's hard to find elsewhere, like gathering with friends to watch or play a match.
I did some research and I found that it turns out the entire world agrees with me! I stumbled across a map that showed the most popular sports across the globe, and I have to admit, some of the results surprised me in a funny and interesting way.
Can you guess which ones?
While many individuals tend to empathize with the hero or various characters in a movie or game, my experience is different; I always find myself empathizing with the creator behind the story.
I love the thrill of coming up with a killer storyline, tackling the tough parts of development, and seeing the emotional impact it has on players who enjoy the final product.
That's what makes game development so rewarding for me!
Recently, an old Swede friend asked me what I like more about making video games.
Well, the answer is simple: I like every aspect of it

Can you decode the secret message?
Last week I attended a cool webinar hosted by ABK about art and animations in videogames industry, and I seized the opportunity to get in touch with dozen of talented digital artists.
Surfing on their social feeds I got aware of a recent debate I had no idea was going on; long story short, many illustrators are complaining about the new trend of using AI generated images in videogaming.
Through the centuries it always happened that a category of professionals got worried about a losing their job by new upcoming technology, but in my opinion this is not the case.
AI generated graphics should be seen like a tool and not like a competitor; hybridization of both the techniques might have amazing results!
I hope nobody gets offended, but I've a strong progressist mindset and I embrace the Barney Stinson's mantra: "new is always better". Cheers!
Yes, yes, I know... I always say "my generation here" "my generation there" but just keep it straight and ignore the nostalgia factor.
Nowadays kids enjoy their smartphones with the same posture we had while playing Tetris on our white-brick-shaped Gameboy and it's not a coincidence.
We didn't realized it yet but we were the early adopters of a revolution: adding the portable component to videogaming actually brought us the Mobile era.
The point is we are about to make another huge leap forward in gaming history with the mass adoption of 5G technology and having a superfast supercheap internet connection as a standard will radically change our concept of entertainment.
I'm very excited about this upcoming trend, are you too?
