Wes Anderson Working on a Post-World War II Musical

The Playlist:

Yesterday, we reported that Oscar-nominated filmmaker, Wes Anderson, was about to set up shop in France to film his next, as-yet-untitled, film. All that we knew at the time was that the film was going to shoot in the French area of Angoulême and will be set post-World War II. We jokingly suggested that the film would, of course, feature all the whimsy and humor that his films up to this point have had. Little did we know just how much whimsy.

According to a report by French outlet Charente Libre, Anderson’s upcoming film is said to be a musical. That’s right, Wes Anderson faithful, the director is prepping a post-WWII French musical.

Well, that’s the most Wes Anderson possibility. Perfect.

Today In Leaks: Hey! DIABLO 3 is Coming to the Nintendo Switch!

Kotaku:

The day that was prophesied by a light switch is finally upon us: Diablo III is coming to Nintendo Switch this year.

The news was meant to be announced tomorrow, but appeared today on Forbes in a post that’s since been deleted. Diablo III Eternal Collection on Switch will include the original game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, the Rise of the Necromancer pack, and all updates the game has received thus far. You’ll also be able to get an armor set that makes you look like Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda, because I guess Ganondorf would be mad about the devil muscling in on his “crown prince of evil” turf.

Apparently we’re getting four player online, and four player offline play too! Even on one system.

Sounds pretty dope to me! ONCE MORE INTO THE BREACH!

Apple Has Been Courting Developers To Move Apps To The Subscription Model

Business Insider:

In April 2017, a group of over 30 software developers gathered at a luxury loft in New York City’s trendy Tribeca neighborhood after receiving an invitation from Apple. They didn’t know exactly why they had been summoned, but all of them had one thing in common: they developed apps for Apple’s devices, according to people who attended the event.

The developers at Apple’s loft soon realized the hardware giant needed something from them: Apple was a few months into a major shift in the App Store’s core business model, and it needed buy-in from developers.

Developers, Apple said, needed to realize the business model of apps was changing. Successful apps tended to focus on long-term engagement instead of upfront cost. Indie developers who wanted to capitalize on this needed to move to a subscription model, as Apple had made possible in the past year in a splashy announcement.

That’s certainly one way to raise the “Services” side of the Apple business.

I know that subscriptions for apps are controversial, but it’s a great way for devs to build a regular income – and for apps you use the most, I 100% feel that’s worth it.
