announced talks with the protest movements leadership a week after negotiations had been canceled at the last moment The meeting is due to be held on Tuesday “To make a statement that there are foreign powers infiltrating this movement right before the discussions is evidence that CY [Leung] is hoping to crack down on the entire movement” said Alex Chow head of the Hong Kong Federation of Students one of several groups spearheading the protests He condemned Leungs statement as "irresponsible" and urged him to provide evidence Lam Cheuk-ting the head of Hong Kongs Democratic Party called Leung’s latest comments “ridiculous” as “we can see that the participants are all volunteers they are not mobilized by any organization or any political party” "If CY [Leung] has any concrete evidence I hope he can provide it to the public and to the media" Lam told TIME Lam said Leungs statement seemed deliberate and tactical since the CE may be seeking to foster Beijing’s support for a stronger crackdown on protesters "I dont think he is under pressure by Beijing but this is his tactic to mislead the Beijing government" Lam said Write to Rishi Iyengar at [email protected] this weekend it seemed like Dong Nguyen creator of ultra-popular mobile game Flappy Bird hit the jackpot His game was skyrocketing having been downloaded more than 50 million times and raking in a reported $50000 in advertising revenue every day The ultra-difficult game was enjoying the sort of popularity of which other gamemakers can only dream being played by everyone from Internet tastemakers to quite literally their moms Then suddenly there was a great disturbance in the mobile-gaming force: millions of gamers howled in terror and were suddenly silenced Nguyen deleted the game Why Not much is known about Nguyen who hasn’t yet returned requests for comment We do know he’s an independent mobile-game designer based in Vietnam working for a very small company called dotGears He was a relative no-name before Flappy Bird took off several months after its initial release Nguyen has a couple of other mobile games Super Ball Juggling and Shuriken Block that are doing well enough but aren’t nearly as popular as Flappy Bird All of his games meanwhile share some characteristics: they’re retro-styled super-addictive and really hard The first time I saw Flappy Bird I was immediately reminded of my childhood favorite Super Mario Bros Nguyen acknowledged drawing inspiration from Nintendo’s classic titles Two friends told Reuters that the Japanese gaming company sent Nguyen a warning letter Nintendo told Reuters that whispers of a lawsuit were nothing more than rumors And Nguyen brushed aside the suggestion that he deleted the game to appease attorneys It is not anything related to legal issues I just cannot keep it anymore Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8 2014 In an earlier interview with the Verge Nguyen said the game which only took off months after its initial release “reached a state where anything added to the game will ruin it somehow” For a creative person what could possibly be more frightening than wanting to tinker with your creation but knowing you risk inviting the ire of 50 million unhappy fans Then there’s the windfall $50000 is more than 200 times the average monthly salary in Vietnam Flappy Bird was making that much every day Nguyen basically won the lottery That kind of unexpected wealth can drive all kinds of people not into prosperity but ruin (Just think of all the actual lottery winners who can’t handle the sudden swell in their checking account) A Twitter feed is a poor map of someone’s mind but there was certainly a noticeable change in Nguyen’s tone leading up to Saturday’s decision Many of Nguyen’s earlier tweets were relaxed and friendly thanking the game’s fans for their messages or politely declining requests to make a desktop version of the game However several of Nguyen’s recent missives show he was under pressure or at least trying to give off that impression He’s talked about “things happening” to him and repeatedly complained of people “overusing” Flappy Birds which certainly had addictive qualities I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users 22 hours from now I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down I cannot take this anymore Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8 2014 @Daniel_Rubino @NikRolls I am really sorry The progress is slow due to a lot of things happening to me now 🙁 Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 7 2014 @misterlukeherb @kotaku Not because of them but because how people use my game They are overusing it Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8 2014 @MattJayYoung @trueflappybird @listicleco Yes I like it People are overusing my app 🙁 Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8 2014 Why would Nguyen snap under the pressure of popularity when the makers of other hot games like Candy Crush Saga are thriving There are thousands of mobile-game designers out there trying to strike it rich but actually doing so means you’ve got to shift into high gear without much warning dealing with a business model income tax and all the other complications that come with business success Candy Crush was developed by King a well-established global company that had the institutional knowledge needed to successfully grow after the game’s success (It’s even wisely decided to hold off on going public to avoid the fate of flailing gamemaker Zynga) Nguyen meanwhile built Flappy Bird with self-described “small independent” Vietnamese game developer dotGears which doesn’t have King’s resources Who knows if Flappy Bird will ever fly again For now those of us with the game already installed on our phones can still enjoy the game or try to make a quick buck on eBay As for Nguyen he promised he’ll still be making games two of his other titles are still available in the app store Maybe one of those will be the next big thing Write to Alex Fitzpatrick at [email protected] look for book film or music news and you’ll probably wind up scouring Google’s aggregation tool There filed neatly under “Entertainment” you’ll find stories about George RR Martin’s Winds of Winter the first chapter of Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman and teasers for the upcoming Ghostbusters film reboot or the Sherlock TV series’ 2015 Christmas special But news about Bethesda’s sprawling new post-apocalyptic roleplaying opus Fallout 4 “Zombies” mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 The latest scuttlebutt about Nintendo’s upcoming “NX” console You’ll have to swing over to “Technology” Sure “Entertainment’s” also thronged with gossip about donut-licking pop music idols and tawdry celebrity shenaniganshardly distinguished company But the message is implicit: books movies and music are “Arts” while games are…something else Indeed games are something else Print books are migrating to e-readers and films plus music are now artifacts we can summon magically from our phones But shifts in gaming are comparably tectonic Game design is fueled by reality control fantasies and interface recalibration over time is in its DNA Think arcade cabinets home computers devoted consoles and handhelds and now smartphones and tablets Think about Nintendo and the Wii Think about Oculus and its wraparound VR headset Think about the point at which true virtual reality arrives Games are lashed to technological momentum’s mast in other words driven as much by revolutions in the semiconductor industry as revelatory design ideas Books and movies don’t undergo motion control upheavals or have elaborate Early Access programs whereby players can significantly influence development Scanning music tracks (play skip ahead skip behind) in today’s streaming apps still works basically the same as punching buttons on boomboxes and Sony Walkmans did decades ago Games by contrast occupy the space between those older staid categories Sticking games in “Technology” has consequences The filter reinforces stereotypes of technology as cold clinical sterileultimately apart from the artful or sublime It frustrates gaming’s slouch toward basic validation as a legitimate art form (beyond its ivory tower acolytes) So it’s with surprise and pleasure that I’m discovering Apple’s new “News” app found in its just released iOS 9 beta files game stories under “Entertainment” and not “Technology” That given how long games have labored under Google and Yahoo’s domineering framework feels huge See The 15 Best Video Game Graphics of 2014 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Activision’s futuristic first-person shooter in which players take on a rogue

Cupertino’s graceful form-and-function balancing act to story curation on the iPhone and iPad Launch it and it’ll ask that you select preferred media outlets before folding your choices into a stream with elegantly feng shui’d headlines and body text Tap on “Explore” and you can alternately browse by categories like “Food” “Politics” “Science” and so on It’s all pretty standard fare But click “Entertainment” and you’ll find channels for Vanity Fair Billboard Complex Vulture…and Polygon The latter is a games-slash-gaming-culture site In the historical echelons of news curators like Google Yahoo and now Apple Polygon’s divorce from “Technology” (the sites stories still appear in the latter category on Google News) is kind of groundbreaking That said the move feels tentative There’s a “Browse Topics” section below “Browse Channels” for instance that includes categories like “Performing arts” “Books and literature” and “Pop music” but nothing generalist for games say an “Interactive entertainment” search And Polygon as far as I can tell is all there is for game channels at this point Where’s Kill Screen Offworld Quarter to Three Assuming Polygon’s filing under “Entertainment” was intentional my hat’s off to Apple for boldly leading here I just hope we’re seeing the tip of an iceberg as opposed to an errant ice cube Apple’s iOS 9 is still in beta of course so everything could change Call it a metaphor for where we’re at culturally weighing gaming as a technology-driven or technology-transcendent medium and still clearly in beta mode Write to Matt Peckham at [email protected] post contains spoilers for Season 6 Episode 2 of Game of Thrones but NO book spoilers Well that was easier than expected Melisandre gave Jon Snow a haircut spoke some Valyrian and all of a sudden the Lord Commander lives again Well it’s probably more complicated than that Here’s what we know about the magic used in this long-awaited resurrection Despite the doubts Melisandre expresses to Davos in the previous scene she does appeal to the Lord of the Light to resurrect Jon Snow Notably she uses a process that’s different than what was used to bring back Beric Dondarrion of the Brotherhood Without Banners the only other person we’ve seen resurrected on the show (The Mountain never actually dies and we’ll categorize wights and White Walkers as “the undead” rather than “the living”) In a season three fight witnessed by Arya the Hound kills Beric Thoros of Myr rushes to Beric’s side and makes a plea to the Lord of Light in the common tongue: “Bring him back from death and darkness His flame has been extinguished Restore it” As far as we see Thoros doesn’t cut and burn Beric’s hair and he doesn’t speak in Valyrian as Melisandre did It works nonetheless and Beric rises from the dead Presumably Melisandre is saying the same words as Thoros but in Valyrian (Someone who has taken the time to actually learn Valyrian can fact-check me on this) We don’t know yet what effect the resurrection process will have on Jon Snow Thoros brings Beric back to life six different times and each time is more difficult than the last “Every time I come back I’m a bit less” Beric tells Arya Now if bringing someone back is as simple as an incantation why doesn’t it happen all the time Perhaps not everyone has that power Thoros says he’s just the “lucky drunk who says the words” and it’s really the Lord of Light that repeatedly brings Beric back but we haven’t seen anyone else besides Melisandre try to do it We know Melisandre has some sort of magical poweryou can’t just create a murderous smoke baby with smoke and mirrors Perhaps Thoros does as well Though there’s a lot left to be explained we are now able to eliminate many other fan theories about how and when Jon Snow would return The necklace played no role He did not turn into a White Walker And though Ghost featured prominently in the resurrection scene it doesn’t seem like Jon warged into him before his death (In the post-show commentary showrunner David Benioff mentions that Ghost has a connection to Jon and thus senses he’s returning before Jon actually takes his first breath) For a moment it seemed we might get an answer as to whether Jon Snow is part Valyrian (details on that theory here) when they talked of burning his body If he was Valyrian royalty like Dany he would have presumably survived such a fire But that perhaps is a question for another day Write to Eliana Dockterman at [email protected] Hundreds of thousands have thronged Hong Kong’s streets since late September to
