EVE Online's holiday update appropriately has more fighting than festivities

EVE Online’s latest update takes place around an ice dwarf. It’s a chilly wee rock like our good pal, Pluto. Operation Permafrost is EVE’s holiday event and, in typical EVE fashion, involves taking on a job from a mysterious employer, fighting mercenaries, disrupting a company’s operations and taking part in corporate wars. It’s space—there’s no room for festive cheer.

Nvidia's AI is generating totally believable human faces, completely cursed cats

Over at Nvidia, Tero Karras, Samuli Laine, and Timo Aila published a paper (and accompanying video, viewable above) showing off what their AI is capable of when generating human faces. The results are nothing short of remarkable, and definitely a bit startling when you consider the implications of a computer being able to produce believable photographs of people who don't actually exist. Generating realistic cats, on the other hand, seems to be more of a struggle, but we'll get to that in a minute.

The voices of Liquid and Solid Snake reunite to perform The Night Before Metal Gear

Hideo Kojima may have replaced David Hayter in Metal Gear Solid 5, but he'll never replace him in our hearts. We haven't heard much of Snake's true voice in the past few years, and if I had to guess how I'd next hear it, "reading a Metal Gear-inspired version of The Night Before Christmas" would not have been my first guess. But here we are.

This GTX 1060 gaming laptop is on sale for $799

If you missed out on the earlier Overpowered gaming laptop deal, then here's another one that's still a great price for the specs. (Thankfully, the Overpowered laptops have a better reception than the gaming desktops.) It's the 15+ model, which means better specs at a higher cost, but it's $100 cheaper than it was a few days ago, and way cheaper than the original MSRP of $1,399.
