The next League of Legends champion to be added to the game will be Viego, the Ruined King, a jungler who is set to launch later this month.
Specific details on Viego are still a little thin on the ground officially, with the champion only being revealed in a new cinematic video and no actual gameplay being shown. However, we do know that he will be a jungler, and is set to release later in January.
Fortunately, there have been some leaks and teases from Riot previously, so we do have a bit of a better idea of what Viego will be able to do. He will be a skirmisher found within the jungle, with Riot teasing that “you may just find yourself falling for…twisting hearts and possessing minds,” within a champion road map last year. Exactly what that means remains to be seen, but visually he already looks impressive.
The announcement of Viego came during the start of season live stream where the League of Legends team revealed a lot of new information about LoL PC and the many other games within the League universe that Riot now has. But for fans of the original title, there was also a lot to get excited about.
Riot revealed that over 140 skins will be coming to League of Legends in 2021, with new skins expected for the likes of Fiddlesticks, Tahm Kench, Corki, Camille, Galio, Lulu, Nautilus, Wukong, Nunu, Sejuani, Rumble, Yuumi, Twitch, Vayne, Caitlyn and Blitzcrank. Players will also be able to vote on what thematics for skins they would like to see added to League, as well as on champion reworks.
As with the start of any new season, the ranked season has now begun once again, with the Clash tournaments set to kick off on January 16 and 17.
The other big news to League of Legends fans is that the World Championship will once again return to China in 2021 after the pandemic scuppered plans for the 2020 event. The final will be held in Shenzhen, China, with the LoL Esports team hoping to return to the multi-city roadshow style event seen in previous years providing it is safe to do so.
League of Legends looks to be in for another big year in 2021, and Riot Games continues to go from strength to strength having launched a number of new games over the past year. The start of season live stream provided an interesting look at what is to come in the coming months, but there is no doubt that bigger and better things are still to come later in the year.
Google Photos for Android gets revamped interface for tablets – MobileSyrup
Google Photos for Android is getting a new interface that is optimized for tablets in order to take advantage of large screens.
Prior to this, the tablet interface was similar to the mobile one with a bottom bar spread across the entire screen and had lots of wasted space. Although Google redesigned the app on mobile last year, it remained the same on tablets.
It now seems that Google has optimized the app for Android tablets. 9to5Google reports that the new interface includes a search field in the top bar called ‘Explore.’ The placement of the bar depends on the width of your screen.
On smaller tablets, it’s placed next to your profile image and on bigger devices, it’s on the left side alongside an ‘Upload’ button. Further, the new interface replaces the bottom bar with a navigation rail.
With the new interface, users can now get quick access to Utilities, Archive and Trash with each option opening up as a fullscreen page.
It appears that the new interface is slowly rolling out and isn’t widely available just yet. The iOS app has yet to be updated.
Apple Says to Keep MagSafe Tech a 'Safe Distance' Away From Medical Devices – iPhone in Canada
If Apple MagSafe tech’s abysmal charging speeds compared to wired alternatives weren’t enough of a letdown, an article written by doctors and published in the Heart Rhythm Journal showed a cardiac pacemaker being deactivated by the magnets in the iPhone 12 (via Mac Magazine).
Because of the addition of MagSafe capabilities, every member of the iPhone 12 lineup has more magnets than older iPhones.
While Apple says the iPhone 12 is “not expected to pose a greater risk of magnetic interference to medical devices than prior iPhone models,” it has not shied away from admitting that the iPhone 12 (and MagSafe accessories) can cause electromagnetic interference with pacemakers, defibrillators, and other medical devices in very close proximity.
Medical devices such as implanted pacemakers and defibrillators might contain sensors that respond to magnets and radios when in close contact. To avoid any potential interactions with these devices, keep your iPhone and MagSafe accessories a safe distance away from your device (more than 6 inches / 15 cm apart or more than 12 inches / 30 cm apart if wirelessly charging). But consult with your physician and your device manufacturer for specific guidelines. All MagSafe accessories (each sold separately) also contain magnets—and MagSafe Charger and MagSafe Duo Charger contain radios. These magnets and electromagnetic fields might interfere with medical devices.
Apple also has an entire section on Medical device interference in the Important safety information for iPhone part of the iPhone User Guide.
With all signs pointing toward the iPhone 13 dropping the Lightning port to leverage wireless charging, it’ll be interesting to see how Apple mitigates electronic and electromagnetic interference issues with the next iPhone.
Resident Evil 8 release date announced as PS5 gets exclusive demo – digitalspy.com – digitalspy.com
Resident Evil 8 has been given a release date, and it’s not that far off.
The eighth (or ninth, or tenth, depending on how you look at it) entry in the main series will be released on May 7, less than a year after it was first announced.
Officially titled Resident Evil Village, with the ‘VIII’ being highlighted in the logo, the survival horror game will be released for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Last-gen versions will let you play the current-gen versions at no extra cost.
There’s a new trailer showing off more of the villains, who are a family of vampires that we are already terrified of. There’s also a mysterious man wearing a cowboy hat, sunglasses and a creepy smile. Chris Redfield and Ethan Winters definitely have their work cut out for them.
A gameplay showcase also had Capcom tease that ‘the merchant will return’ from Resident Evil 4, but we’re not sure if the character The Duke is supposed to be him. Definitely returning from Resident Evil 4 is the inventory management system, which items having different shapes and sizes, so you can’t carry everything with you at once.
A demo is available now, exclusively on PS5. You play as an unnamed maiden trying to to escape the dungeon. We’ve played it, and while there’s no combat or enemies, the visuals and sound design do a good job of filling you with dread.

The game will also come with a free online multiplayer title called Resident Evil Re:Verse. Yes, they did the same thing with last year’s Resident Evil 3 remake and Resistance, which barely anyone played. Maybe it’ll take off this time, who knows…
