What's new from Nintendo Direct
At ShowmeCAST 130 we talked about the Nintendo Direct February with big announcements in yet another event that has become the company's trademark in recent years. The new The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom received a trailer that showed more details of the story and gameplay with new areas, mechanics, enemies and with a hint of hope regarding the return of the dungeons franchise classics.
In addition, the event featured new content from Xenoblade Chronicles 3 with a first expansion that we will be able to see more of the main story of the trilogy being developed and we have also seen the return of Level 5 with new Professor Layton, the announcement of DECAPOLICIZE and the relaunch of Fantasy Life i: The Girl Who Steals Time, a game of life sim with RPG elements that was in the Nintendo 3DS and we will see for the first time in Nintendo Switch.
One of the great surprises of the event was the announcement to be launched on the same day as the Metroid Prime Remastered, which in turn proved to be a true remake with new models and complete recreation of all stages of the game, which made all fans of the franchise – and especially Dacio – very happy.
The good and bad side of ChatGPT

As explained in more detail in a january post, the software launched in November 2022 aims to talk to the public through commands and is an artificial intelligence that has proven to be very efficient in seeking the necessary information through a complex reinforcement learning system.
O Chat GPT stood out during the month of February for its high applicability in different areas, helping many people with automated tasks and has proven to be a useful tool that can facilitate work. However, we discussed at ShowmeCAST 130 all the socioeconomic impacts that this type of technology can cause in different markets and how a greater debate on this subject is needed and how the automation of tasks can generate a job crisis on a global scale.
