After watching the Nintendo press conference at E3 earlier this week, it was clear Nintendo is focusing on supporting an online community of players for the Wii U. In fact, it wants players to help each other out and intends to place comments directly in games, be them multiplayer or single player experiences.The question such widespread communication inevitably brings up is, how do you filter that content for inappropriate words and game spoilers? Nintendo has responded by saying all comments posted on Miiverse will be subject to not one, but three layers of security in order to keep Miiverse clean and spoiler-free.The first two layers are common methods of weeding out inappropriate content. The first layer is a word filter that will look for specific “naughty” words and deletes them. The second layer is a gamer’s ability to flag a comment as inappropriate, at which point it won’t be visible until someone at Nintendo decides if it really is inappropriate or not.The third layer is where a potential community-breaking problem exists, though. Nintendo intends to moderate all content going up on Miiverse by employing a small army of people to read everything before it goes live. Although this will definitely keep Miiverse child-friendly, it means there will be a delay between posting and your comments becoming visible.How long will the delay be? According to Satoru Iwata, anything up to 30 minutes is acceptable as far as Nintendo is concerned. But if you’re a gamer stuck at a certain point in a game, you want instant feedback, not a long wait before your “help me!” comment goes live.In reality the delay may be no more than a minute or two, but for very popular games during a launch window you can imagine moderators are going to struggle to keep up. Hopefully in those situations Nintendo just relaxes the rules and falls back on layers one and two for filtering.What remains unclear is how extensive this monitoring is. For example, if you are just having a chat with people flagged as friends or family, will a moderator be involved? I hope not, as that will kill real-time chats and possibly also raises a few privacy concerns for Nintendo to deal with.Read more at Los Angeles Times, via Kotaku

(iStock) Office landlords in New York, Chicago and San Francisco could be taking a hit in the next few years even if some companies lock in long-term leases.More companies are keeping their offices, but are downsizing those spaces to allow employees to work remotely part-time, according to data from VTS, first reported by the Wall Street Journal.The analysis shows that landlords are giving tenants discounts of up to 13 percent compared to rents in the first quarter of 2020. Firms are also looking at an average of about 10 percent less space than they were looking at in the first quarter of 2020.Even as more people are getting the Covid-19 vaccine, many employees are reluctant to return to the office. The U.S. office vacancy rate rose to 11.9 percent in the first quarter, according to the report, which cited data from CoStar.ADVERTISEMENTLandlords are willing to offer rent breaks to prevent vacancies from rising, but these rent discounts could lead to lower valuations of office buildings in major cities.One positive sign for office owners: Companies are still looking to secure long-term leases.Over 45 percent of the tenants negotiating with landlords are seeking to make commitments of at least seven years. That’s up from 34 percent in 2019, according to the report.[WSJ] — Keith Larsen Share via Shortlink Tags Commercial Real EstateManhattanoffice market
STEPPING IN—Mike Wallace eludes Paul Pusluszny during a preseason game against Buffalo last August at Heinz Field. Clearly, it’s going to take the Steelers some time to adjust to having a receiver other than Holmes lining up with Hines Ward in a tandem that, for one season, paired two Super Bowl MVPs.Or maybe it won’t.Wallace is convinced the transition will take less time than expected, given he’s replacing a former first-round draft pick who caught 79 passes last season and had a combined 18 touchdown receptions the last three seasons.“I feel like they believe I can do the same things Santonio did,” Wallace said. “I don’t feel like there’s anything Santonio did that I can’t do. I’m still running some of the routes I ran last year, it’s just that I have more of them to run.”Maybe Wallace doesn’t have Holmes’ knowledge of NFL cornerbacks, or of opponents’ defensive tendencies. And he’s still not certain how running plays out of Holmes’ position will differ from running them out of Ward’s position; he spent last season as Ward’s backup.Leftwich does know this: Few defenders will be faster than Wallace.“We all know what Santonio can do,” said Leftwich, who is running the first-team offense during Ben Roethlisberger’s absence. “Mike, he’s running by a lot of people. He’s got speed that not a lot of people have. We haven’t seen that in the league a lot. There’s only a few people who can run like that.”Holmes is fast, but he’s not as fast as Wallace, who caught 39 passes for 756 yards and six touchdowns while averaging 19.4 yards per catch as a rookie. His speed was such an asset, the Steelers felt confident they didn’t need to look elsewhere for a replacement last month when they decided to trade Holmes to the Jets following a series of off-field missteps.After compensating for Wallace’s speed, Leftwich managed to hit the former Mississippi receiver on the same deep pass play that didn’t work the first time.“When you think of Mike, you think of a deep threat,” quarterback Dennis Dixon said. “Whenever you go up top with Mike, you’ve got to be sure to release it early because he can outrun your arm.”To Ward, the biggest adjustment for Wallace won’t be in lining up at a different position, but learning how to get open while running precise patterns on first and second downs.Last season, Wallace—a third-round draft pick—mostly played in multiple receiver packages in which he rarely opposed top-line cornerbacks or was double-teamed.“Sometimes the (top) guys lined up on me, but for the most part they were on Santonio or Hines,” Wallace said. “But I’m always ready for a challenge. I don’t feel like I’m afraid of anybody, I don’t fear anybody and they go to work just like I go to work. I’m going to be ready for them, just like they’re going to be ready for me.”Wallace also benefited from the instruction time Ward and Holmes gave him.“I learned how to be a pro, coming in every day and working and never being satisfied with a good game or having one good week,” Wallace said. “If you’re hanging onto that, you’re going to get whipped. Every day’s a new day, that’s the main thing.”Every season’s a new one, too, and this could be an especially demanding one for the Steelers because Roethlisberger will be suspended until October.“We know what type of business we’re in and we’re ready to roll with whoever’s in,” Wallace said. “It’s always going to be hard when he’s not here, but we’ve got to keep rolling. I feel like when he comes back, we’re going to pick up where we left off.”Wallace also hopes to pick up where Holmes left off, averaging seven catches per game during the second half of last season.“That’s the nature of the business,” Wallace said. “One guy’s out and the next day I have to step in.” by Alan RobinsonAssociated Press Writer PITTSBURGH (AP)—Mike Wallace is on the fast track to replacing Santonio Holmes as the Steelers’ primary deep passing threat. Byron Leftwich needed only one practice to realize that.During a 7-on-7 passing drill recently in a voluntary practice, Wallace beat his man cleanly, but Leftwich’s pass landed behind the receiver. The timing and precision needed to correctly execute the fly pattern weren’t there.
