How Microsoft's Hololens Enhances NFL

Microsoft is not showing an actual tech demo just yet, but they have high hopes that their Hololens could make pretty much everything you watch better. This is actually pretty cool, and while I wouldn't probably wear it when watching things like the new Lego movie, it would make NFL and NHL even more awesome.

Titanfall 2 Will Have a Real Single-Player Campaign

While Titanfall was one of the best games of 2014, it didn't receive a lot of traction as the long-term playability was a bit limited. The overall feel was great - but very repetitive. Titanfall will be back with their second installment, and this time around they claim that there will be a real single-player campaign, instead of the neutered online single-player attempt done in the first one. I personally enjoy single-player campaigns, but the big question is, "Will this be enough to drive more sales to TF2?" Time will tell later this year or early next when the game is expected to launch.

Respawn hasn't said much about its Titanfall sequel beyond plans for multi-platform support, but some details are starting to trickle out... and they'll be good news for fans of the robot-slash-infantry shooter. In a chat with Forbes, head writer Jesse Stern notes that Titanfall 2 will have a real, honest-to-goodness single-player campaign when it arrives either late this year or early next.

Opera gets sold

Opera (makes of the Opera web browser and other internet properties) have approved a $1.2 billion dollar offer to sell their company. Opera has been taking a bit of a kicking lately and have been rumored to have been looking for a buyer since late 2015. The price tag represents a 53% premium on the current Opera stock prices so there must be something there that would entice a buyer to pay big dollars. Looks like this isn't the last we've seen of Opera and it should be interesting to see how the new buyers handle the properties they've just acquired. ZDNet has the full story.

Opera has received a $1.2 billion buyout offer from a consortium of Chinese Internet firms, the company announced on Wednesday.

The consortium includes Kunlun and Qihoo 360 and is backed by the investment funds Golden Brick and Yonglian.

Opera's board recommends the deal.

The $1.2 billion offer is a 53 percent premium on Opera's close as of February 4 on the Oslo stock exchange. Trading of the company has been suspended for two days following buyout rumors.
