first_imgKlopp loving competition within Liverpool squadby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is loving the competition within his squad.The German says his players are fighting tooth and nail in training in order to impress him.Speaking before Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Napoli, Klopp said he had plenty of players available for selection.He said: “And the competition in this team is really big, yes. If that line-up is not performing, they are really there. As an example, Shaq [Xherdan Shaqiri] is brought in in that position where he has been training for a couple of weeks now. He is so creative. He is a real option.”If you have one good game and another good game, the dynamic changes. Dejan Lovren is not in the squad and I have no explanation for that other than two centre-halves on the bench is probably not necessary. Naby Keita is coming, everyone knows that. “When Ox [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] played really well at Southampton, for the all others it was ‘ooh’, but you should see training. They all want to make sure, ‘I am ready, you can use me’. “This is a really big club with competition between friends. It is not I have to kill him to play, it is really for the team. That is what the boys did so far and as long as we have that we will go for everything. Then we have to see what we get because we have really good opponents and that is the problem.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Egypt judges urged to free jailed female protesters

first_imgby Mona SALEMCairo- The lawyer for 21 Egyptian women and girls jailed over an Islamist protest told appeal courts Saturday there was no evidence of their guilt and urged judges to free them.Wearing handcuffs but holding red roses, the 21 appeared in Alexandria courts in white prison garb in a case that has sparked an outcry. Many bore the word “Freedom” written in Arabic and English on the palms of their hands, and smiled from the metal-caged dock.The women and girls were convicted last month of taking part in a violent protest demanding Islamist President Mohammed Morsi’s reinstatement following his overthrow by the army in July.Fourteen women previously sentenced to 11 years in jail were ushered into the cage in the courtroom as the appeal by the seven girls was heard in an adjacent juvenile court.Their harsh sentences had shocked even supporters of the military-installed government.Lawyer Ahmed al-Hamrawy told the court there was no evidence to convict his clients and asked the judges to release them.“Even in Mubarak’s era there were morals. Egypt’s women and girls were a red line and they weren’t placed on trial,” he said, referring to ousted dictator Hosni Mubarak, Morsi’s predecessor.“This is an oppressive sentence,” one defendant, Salma, told AFP during a court recess.She said her daughter was among the seven juveniles sentenced, and explained that they had both been near the October 31 protest by chance when arrested.“I have the right to express my opinion — this is a constitutional right, and we are currently political prisoners,” said another defendant, Aya Adel.The prosecutor general’s office charged that the women fought with knives and threw rocks during clashes that erupted during the protest in Egypt’s second city.Six men said to be Muslim Brotherhood leaders were tried in absentia in the same case and sentenced to 15 years.They were found guilty of inciting the women to cut key roads in the city during the clashes.There was a heavy police presence outside the court complex in the coastal city, where Morsi’s Islamist supporters have repeatedly clashed with opponents and security forces.During the recess, about 100 friends and relatives of the defendants stood outside the courtroom chanting “Down with military rule.”Hamrawy told AFP he expected the misdemeanor courts to either acquit them or release them on bail ahead of a final ruling.The jail terms, coming in the same week as a restrictive new protest law, re-energized Islamist opposition to the interim government and drew criticism even from its secular supporters.Hamdeen Sabbahi, a former presidential candidate and a leading dissident under Morsi, called on the interim president to pardon the girls and repeal the new law governing protests.The military-installed government has pressed a crackdown on Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood movement that has killed more than 1,000 people and imprisoned thousands.Much of the Brotherhood’s leadership, including Morsi, is on trial on various charges of inciting violence.Courts have also handed out harsh sentences to Islamist protesters, including 12 men imprisoned for 17 years after a violent protest in Cairo.Amnesty International severely criticized the verdicts against the female protesters.It “shows the Egyptian authorities’ determination to punish dissent,” the rights grolast_img read more

College Football Playoff Preview This Is Not Last Years ClemsonAlabama Matchup

Like any good trilogy, we’ll get a high-stakes finale when the Tide and Tigers face off in the Sugar Bowl on New Year’s Day. For us fans, we can only hope it’s more Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and less Godfather Part III. So what differences should we be on the lookout for this time around?Clemson changed its game plan — and got betterAs my colleague Dan Levitt and I wrote about early in the season, Clemson had to revamp the way it played this season after losing quarterback Deshaun Watson to the NFL. Watson’s replacement, Kelly Bryant, wasn’t as polished a passer as his predecessor — he averaged about 95 fewer yards per game through the air than Watson did in his final college season1All of the numbers referenced in this story use pre-bowl statistics. — but he was more proficient with his legs, racking up more rushing yards than Watson and scoring nearly twice as many touchdowns on the ground. 201612-1+10.8+2.4+13.7+7.3+1.4+7.5+0.4 Bryant wasn’t a Watson clone — but he was almost as goodKey statistics for Clemson starting quarterbacks in 2016 and 2017 EPA = Expected points added, a measure of offensive productivity that accounts for the value of yards gained, field position and down/distance.Source: ESPN Stats & Information Group OffenseDefense 201711-1+5.4+10.1+15.7+7.7+4.7+11.2+0.6 All numbers are before bowl games. Total EPA on offense and defense may not equal sum of rushing plus passing because of penalties.Source: ESPN Stats & Information Group 2017Kelly Bryant43.580.7+4.5+1.4-0.9+0.3+5.3 201712-1+4.8+5.4+10.9+7.6+4.8+12.4-0.9 2016Deshaun Watson51.082.3+6.3+0.5-0.5+0.6+6.9 201613-0+4.4+6.4+10.1+11.8+6.6+18.3+0.7 YearRecordPassRushTotalPassRushTotalSpecial Tms Over the last two seasons, the Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide have faced each other twice for the College Football Playoff championship. To say the rivalry has been as close as it gets would be an understatement: The teams split the national championships at one apiece and were nearly even on total points as well. (Alabama has a slim 76-75 lead in aggregate scoring.) In terms of total contributions, Bryant wasn’t quite able to match Watson’s output of a year ago. But in combination with the Tigers’ other skill-position talent (specifically running backs Travis Etienne and Tavien Feaster), he led a Clemson offense that compiled over 30 more rushing yards per game in 2017 than it had the year before. In turn, that improved run game helped the Tigers’ offense absorb Watson’s departure with a loss of fewer than 3 expected points added (EPA) per game. OffenseDefense That dominant 2016 Alabama squad was built around a fearsome defense that ranked among the best in college football history, allowing a paltry 248 total yards per game during the regular season and holding opposing passers to a Total Quarterback Rating of 11.4 — both marks ranked No. 1 in the FBS. This season, those numbers are up to 258 and 20.9, respectively, which still count among the best in the country, but also helped contribute to a defense that was more than a touchdown worse per game by EPA than it had been in 2016.Fortunately for Alabama, its offense nearly improved enough to offset that defensive decline. According to EPA, QB Jalen Hurts and the Tide passing game was worth a full point per game more this year than last, with Hurts rising from 41st nationally in QBR to sixth, and receiver Calvin Ridley cracking the top 40 in receiving yards per game. Moreover, the Crimson Tide rushing attack churned ahead for more than 20 extra yards per game this season, with a greater depth of contributions (eight separate Alabama rushers gained at least 100 yards) that amounted to nearly 4 extra points per game by EPA. Overall, the Alabama offense was second only to Oklahoma’s in efficiency, a year after it ranked only 24th in the country.In other words, both Alabama and Clemson have altered their strengths since the last time we saw them face off in the College Football Playoff. Whether things will play out more like they did in 2016 (an Alabama win) or 2017 (a Clemson victory) is still up in the air — but with greater balance from both teams, the ingredients might be in place for Part 3 of the trilogy to somehow surpass the all-time classics we saw in Parts 1 and 2. More importantly, Clemson’s defense made major strides in 2017, led up front by a unit composed exclusively of first- or second-team All-ACC linemen. Tiger defenders recorded 3.4 sacks per game (third-most in the Football Bowl Subdivision), held opponents to 3.1 yards per rush (ninth-lowest in FBS), yielded the sixth-fewest total yards per game in the country and improved their overall performance by 4.9 points per game according to EPA.Clemson wasn’t an awful defensive team the last time it faced Alabama, but this regular season the Tigers might have had the best defense in the nation. That defensive development helped Clemson post a superior point differential (adjusted for schedule strength) than the Watson-led national championship squad did a year ago. In other words: This is probably the best of the three Clemson teams that have appeared in the College Football Playoff.Alabama isn’t the best ever anymore, but they are better on offenseUp until they faced Clemson in the championship game, the 2016 Crimson Tide were riding high. In fact, according to our Elo ratings, they’d put together the greatest peak performance of any college football team since the AP poll began2In 1936. when they defeated Florida in last year’s SEC championship (and then increased their Elo record when they beat Washington in the playoff semifinal). But we all know how that ended for them — with Nick Saban shaking his head in disbelief as Watson produced a comeback for the ages and delivered the Tigers their first national title in 35 years.Alabama regrouped in the way Alabama usually regroups, which is to say they shot right back up to No. 1 for most of 2017 as well. But, statistically, they were not quite as dominant as a season ago: Going into the playoff, Elo considers the 2017 Tide to be 29.9 points per game better than an average FBS team, which is not only a far cry from their mark this time last year (40.2) but also ranks just fourth in the country this year, behind Clemson (32.6), Georgia (31.3) and Oklahoma (30.0). According to Sports Reference’s power ratings, this is Alabama’s worst season since 2010, a year they were relegated to the unacceptably non-prestigious Capital One Bowl. Although most programs would kill for a “down season” like the one Alabama is having, it’s still worth noting that this rendition of the Crimson Tide has been less dominant than usual.But like their counterparts at Clemson, the Tide have also tweaked their playing style in a way that makes their continued greatness especially impressive. All numbers are before bowl games. Total EPA on offense and defense may not equal sum of rushing plus passing because of penalties.Source: ESPN Stats & Information Group YearRecordPassRushTotalPassRushTotalSpecial Tms YearPlayerPlays/GmQBRPassingRushingSacksPenaltyTotal How Clemson shifted its strengthsExpected points added per game by category for Clemson, 2016 and 2017 EPA/Game How ’Bama changed its focus from defense to offenseExpected points added per game by category for Alabama, 2016 and 2017 read more

Emilia Clarke: Next ‘Game of Thrones’ Fight Will Be Bigger Than Winterfell

first_imgStay on target ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… Game of Thrones’ last season is in full swing, and the “Battle of Winterfell” left many fans in shock, as they watched a long fight between Iron Throne contenders and White Walkers. But, the power struggle is not over yet: According to Emilia Clarke, one of the last episodes will be bigger than Season 8, Episode 3’s deadly showdown.On Wednesday night, Clarke spoke with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! about filming the final season of Game of Thrones and what audiences might expect for the last three episodes.“Episode five is bigger,” Clarke told Kimmel. “Episode five is—I mean, four and five and six, they’re all insane, but like…find the biggest TV you can.”It’s likely that Episode 4 could be a transition episode, where the surviving heroes will form a plan of attack against Euron Greyjoy and Cersei Lannister, who are building up the ultimate fleet, as shown in the Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4 preview trailer. From what Clarke said though, fans might need to prepare themselves for what’s to come on Episode 5 and Episode 6.The “Battle of Winterfell” wasn’t a typical TV fight though: Season 8, Episode 3 required 55 nights of shooting and 750 people, according to Clarke. The episode, which featured multiple fight scenes between many characters and the Night King’s death, was the longest battle sequence created in TV history, Vox reported.Even though Season 8, Episode 5 is two weeks away, Clarke is making everyone stay on the edge of their seats for now. In the meantime, Season 8, Episode 4 could give fans a better understanding of how some of Westeros plans to take down Cersei Lannister, who will be the “last war” following the “Battle of Winterfell” aftermath.Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4 will premiere on Sunday, May 5 at 9 p.m. EST on HBO.<em><strong>More on Geek.com:</strong></em>&nbsp;</p><p>More on Geek.com:First Look: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 4 Photos ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 4 Preview: One Last War to Win‘Game of Thrones’ Stars Say Goodbye to ‘Battle of Winterfell’ Fallen Heroeslast_img read more

California Wants to Limit Storage of Smart Speaker Recordings

first_img California lawmakers introduced a bill that would limit how manufacturers of smart speakers and digital assistants collect recordings.The Anti-Eavesdropping Act, which cleared its first committee this week, prohibits saving, storing, or sharing of audio recordings without explicit consent from the user.“Recent revelations about how certain companies have staff that listen in to private conversations via connected smart speakers further shows why this bill is necessary to protect privacy in the home,” Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R-San Luis Obispo), the bill’s author, said in a statement published by The Mercury News.Bloomberg last month shocked no one with the news that thousands of Amazon employees around the world listen in on Echo owners’ conversations (allegedly to improve the technology).More troubling is the fact that workers can also access location information of Alexa users and look up their home or office address.The California bill—introduced in February by Cunningham—defines “smart speaker devices” as a wireless speaker and voice command device with an integrated virtual assistant “that offers interactive actions and hands-free activation.”Should the legislation pass, it would severely handicap services like Amazon’s Alexa, Siri from Apple, and Google Assistant (among a handful of others).“We’re monitoring this developing legislation,” a Google spokeswoman told Geek in an emailed statement. “That said, we believe that the combination of strong and balanced regulations, with products that are designed with privacy in mind, will help provide individuals with confidence that they’re in control of their personal information.”As Digital Trends pointed out, California is not the first state to try to limit digital eavesdropping: Illinois previously attempted to pass a similar law, which Google and Amazon lobbied against.More on Geek.com:Stop Ignoring Your Smart Speaker’s Privacy FunctionsUK Gov’t Uses Alexa, Google Assistant to Dispense InfoAmazon Accidentally Sent 1,700 Alexa Recordings to a Random Person9 Times Your Smart Speaker Got WeirdEditor’s note: This article was updated on May 7 with comment from Google.

‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Kharacter Guide: Kitana

first_imgWho Are They?Kitana is the good and fair Princess of Edenia. Or rather she was until the fantasy realm was violently conquered by the villainous forces of Outworld. She then spent much of her life as the unwittingly “adopted” desert assassin daughter of the brutal emperor Shao Kahn, where her DNA was even stolen to create a monster clone “sister” Mileena. But Outworld’s struggle against Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat gives Kitana an opportunity for revenge against her “father.”Kombat KhronologyKitana was one of the major new characters in Mortal Kombat 2, giving the game more female representation beyond just Sonya Blade. And since then she’s remained one of the game’s most prominent female characters, the mold other fantasy women characters diverge from. She’s also become a bit of a love interest for Liu Kang in later games, with Mortal Kombat 11 especially playing up their bond both in the past and in the present as evil zombies.Koolest KustomizationsKitana’s face gets one of the better upgrades thanks to Mortal Kombat 11 now rendering the characters more like real people. So I go with her human form versus her rotting corpse form. As for moves, Kitana’s main gimmick is slicing foes with razor sharp fan blades. So I go for death by a thousand cuts with moves that increase how many fans I can throw out at once or summon around myself for a protective barrier.How Gross Is The Fatality?Kitana’s regal grace doesn’t make her fatality any less gruesome. She just doesn’t get her own hands dirty. Instead, she cut you open and uses her fans to summon a tornado that pulls your entrails out like a gory force of nature. Takes my breath (and everything else) away. Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

And the recently released Mortal Kombat 11 brings the reboot trilogy home with a story mode stretching across all of history and new ways for customizing characters to your liking, with different skills and gear to make the accessible mechanics even more varied and deep.Expensive cutscenes and ancillary (arguably exploitative) side content aren’t worth anything though if your fighting game doesn’t have a solid roster.

Amazon to Showcase Small Businesses in UK Pop-Up Shops

Growing ‘Alien’ Exoplanets Circle Distant Star in New Astronomy Image

first_img NASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This WeekendHubble Captures Saturn’s ‘Phonograph Record’ Ring System Stay on target Astronomers have captured an image of two “alien” exoplanets circling PDS 70, a young star that is located about 370 light-years from Earth, according to a new study.PDS 70 is the only second multi-planet system to be photographed following a four-planet system that was orbiting the star HR 8799, Space.com reported. Unlike HR 8799, PDS 70’s planets are not fully developed yet and still growing by carving out a wide gap within a planet-forming disk that surrounds the sun-like star, said a NASA press release. The study, which was recently published in the journal Nature Astronomy, suggests that forming planets can be responsible for some of the disk gaps astronomers have spotted in PDS 70 and other young star systems.“With facilities like ALMA, Hubble [Space Telescope], or large ground-based optical telescopes with adaptive optics, we see disks with rings and gaps all over,” Julien Girard of the Space Telescope Science Institute said in the press release. “The open question has been, are there planets there? In this case, the answer is yes.”According to the study, PDS 70 is roughly 6 million years old and it’s slightly smaller than our sun. The young star is surrounded by a disk of dust and gas with a big gap extending from approximately 1.9 to 3.8 billion miles.Exoplanets PDS 70 b and c. (Photo Credit: ESO / S. Haffert-Leiden Observatory)PDS 70 b, the innermost planet that was first spotted in 2018, is placed within the disk gap about two billion miles from its star and it could weigh from 4 to 17 times as much as Jupiter. PDS 70 c, a newly discovered planet, is near the outer edge of the disk gap roughly 3.3 billion miles from the star and it’s not as massive as PDS 70 b. The inner planet (PDS 70 b) circles the star twice in the time it takes the outer planet (PDS 70 c) to orbit around one time.PDS 70 c was detected from the ground with the European Southern Observatory’s (ESA’s) Very Large Telescope (VLT)’s MUSE spectrograph. Astronomers on the team were very surprised to find the second planet while using a new observing mode developed to study galaxies and star clusters.Our team is excited to present the first evidence for a circumplanetary disc (CPD)! CPDs are discs of gas and dust believed to surround giant planets (e.g. Jupiter) when they are born, and be the birthplace of their moons. Our results suggest newborn planet PDS 70 b has a CPD! pic.twitter.com/8ph2RdQrhx— Valentin Christiaens (@Valentin__C) June 4, 2019“This new observing mode was developed to study galaxies and star clusters at higher spatial resolution,” said Sebastiaan Haffert of Leiden Observatory. “But this new mode also makes it suitable for exoplanet imaging, which was not the original science driver for the MUSE instrument.”NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope might be able to study this “planet nursery” and other planet systems with a similar observation technique in the future. This would allow scientists to measure the density of gas and the temperature within the disk, which would improve their understanding of the formation of gas giant planets.More on Geek.com:NASA’s Planet Hunter Finds First Earth-Sized ExoplanetAstronomers Observe ‘Super-Jupiter’ Exoplanet for First TimeKepler’s First Exoplanet Candidate Confirmed, 10 Years Laterlast_img read more

At the Space Station though, these air bubbles like to “hang out” in water because there isn’t a force holding the water below them.Saint-Jacques is scheduled to return to Earth on June 24, until then, he will take part in a couple of other experiments, including setting up the Bio-Analyzer, a Canadian technology that can quickly test blood, saliva, urine, and other body fluids, and finalizing the Bio-Monitor, a Canadian smart shirt system that can easily measure astronauts’ vital signs at the Space Station.More on Geek.com:Growing ‘Alien’ Exoplanets Circle Distant Star in New Astronomy Image‘Double Asteroid’ Speeding By Earth at 43,000 MPH Captured in PhotoStunning Images of a Sunset on Earth Captured From Spacelast_img read more

These Are the Games You Should Check Out in June 2019

first_imgStay on target Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form June isn’t exactly brimming with many big titles but it is a better month than May. The big releases on this list are obviously Super Mario Maker 2, Judgement, and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for the pure fact they’re entirely new games. The rest of this list comprises of remakes and remasters. If you’re already played these games, then it’s a bummer. However, if you’ve never tried them, now is a good as time as any to dive in.Super Mario Maker 2Platform: Nintendo SwitchRelease date: June 28Many Wii U games have found a renewed life on Nintendo Switch. Many (myself included) expected a port of Super Mario Maker since that is one of the best games on the system. Instead of a port, Nintendo went and developed a full-on sequel, appropriately called Super Mario Maker 2. Like the original, players can create their very own Super Mario Bros. stages and share them with others. That last point is a big part of the reason for the series’ popularity. It is very cool seeing how creative the player base can get. I’m never good with these create-whatever-the-hell-you-want type of games so I’ll just play other people’s levels and curse them for being so difficult.Pre-order Super Mario Maker 2 on AmazonJudgmentPlatform: PlayStation 4Release date: June 25We’ve seen a number of Yakuza titles released in the West this generation but things have slowed down in 2019. Thankfully, the same developers are delivering a new IP called Judgment. Like Yakuza, you go around fictionalized Japanese cities and towns beating the crap out of thugs and partaking in all manner of strange mini-games. The big difference is you play as a cop instead of a criminal. On top of brawling, you’ll have to inspect crime scenes for clues and question citizens in order to further your investigations. Like I said, there’s not a new Yakuza game this year, so Judgement will fill that void.Pre-order Judgment on AmazonBloodstained: Ritual of the NightPlatforms: PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox OneRelease date: June 18Koji Igarashi has been developing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for what seems like ages, so it’s awesome to see the game actually releasing. In case you don’t know, Igarashi was in charge of Castlevania games like Symphony of the Night. Since Konami (at the time) didn’t want to make an old-school Castlevania entry, he decided to form an independent studio and develop a game in that style. I’ve played numerous Bloodstained demos over the years so I’m very excited to have the finished product in my grubby hands. I expect I’ll sink many hours into Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night this summer.Pre-order Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on AmazonCrash Team Racing Nitro-FueledPlatforms: PS4, Switch, Xbox OneRelease date: June 21Crash Bandicoot returned to the gaming landscape two years ago with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Since that game performed so well, it’s no surprise to see Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled get the HD spit n’ polish. Like N. Sane Trilogy, Nitro-Fueled features completely redone character and environmental models along with high-res textures. It has all of the tracks from the original title, along with some from Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Tag Team Racing. I personally never got into the Crash games back in the day, though I did enjoy N. Sane Trilogy (until it became frustratingly difficult). I’ll probably skip Nitro-Fueled, but if you’re into kart racing games, you should dig this one.Pre-order Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled on AmazonThe Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IIPlatform: PlayStation 4Release date: June 4The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel released on PS4 back in April and its sequel drops this month. How is that possible? Because both titles are ports of PS3/PS Vita games. The Legend of Heroes is one of those JRPG franchises I’ve heard of but never got around to playing. From what friends who are fans tell me, the games feature deep turn-based RPG mechanics and an even deeper lore. I’m not sure how I feel about sinking a million hours into a JRPG these days, but the series does look intriguing. If you’re into the genre, it might be a good time to check out Trails of Cold Steel II (along with its predecessor) to pass the long summer months.Buy The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II on AmazonOctopath TravellerPlatform: PCRelease date: June 7Formerly a Nintendo Switch exclusive, Square-Enix’s Octopath Traveler makes its way to PC this month. If you’ve already played this then you won’t find any new content in this package. It’s essentially a straight port of the original but with higher resolutions. That’s both good and bad, depending on who you ask. Though I initially loved Octopath Traveller, the endless grinding eventually burned me out. I don’t usually mind grinding in RPGs, but this one took it to a whole other level. But if you don’t mind spending endless hours leveling up characters then you’re going to have a good time with this one.Pre-order Octopath Traveller on Humble StoreHeavy RainPlatform: PCRelease date: June 24Speaking about console exclusives coming to PC, Quantic Dreams’ Heavy Rain is making its own journey to the Epic Games Store. Like Octopath Traveller, this is a pretty faithful port of the original. Of course, this edition sports higher-res textures and a smoother frame rate. Some folks (understandably) aren’t fans of Quantic Dreams’ titles, but I’ve always enjoyed them even when they get super cheesy. Heavy Rain was my first introduction to the studios’ work so it’ll be interesting to revisit this one. Maybe this time I won’t become as annoyed when they reveal the killer’s identity. I also look forward to seeing all the various mods the community will no doubt conjure up. On second thought, maybe I don’t want to see that.Pre-order Heavy Rain on the Epic Games StoreMore on Geek.com:Irresponsible Video Game Predictions for E3 2019‘Game of Thrones: Beyond The Wall’ Is a VR Westeros Adventure‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’ Trailer Steps Out of the Shadowslast_img read more

WWE NXT Results – 9/4/14 (Tag Tournament Finals)

first_img Jason Namako RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Google+ Now Playing Up Next Videos Articles WWE NXTSeptember 4, 2014Full Sail UniversityCommentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, Renee YoungRecap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.comWe see the usual intro, then go to the opening match.Alexa Bliss vs. NXT Women’s Champion “The Dirtiest Diva in the Game” CharlotteCharlotte with a side headlock takeover. Bliss counters out with a headscissors, but Charlotte kips up. Bliss with a side headlock, then goes to the middle rope, 450s off and hits a armdrag.

Bayley says that Charlotte refused to shake her hand last week, but I earned this opportunity, I beat your former BFF, Sasha Banks, twice. Its time that you start taking me serious because at NXT Takeover, I am seriously taking your title. Bayley extends her hand and Charlotte asks if this is what Bayley wants. Charlotte then piefaces Bayley, but misses a clothesline and Bayley hits Charlotte with the Belly-to-Bayley. Charlotte leaves the ring as Bayley stands tall, holding up the NXT Women’s Title belt.We go to a promo from Tyler Breeze. Breeze says that its very simple as to why he will win the NXT Title at Takeover. How did Sami Zayn do at the last Takeover show? Not very well. Look at Neville & Kidd, do they look like me? They’re not “Prince Pretty” they’re not the “King of Cuteville”, the “Definition of Dellish”, they’re not the super good-looking piece of gorgeousness that you are ever going to see and you are gonna ask me why I think I’m going to win? Let me think about it, maybe its because I’m better looking than every single person in every single room that I’ve walked into in my entire life. Or, maybe its because that every single time I step into the ring, I get the job done, take your pick.CommercialBack from commercial, we go backstage as Devin Taylor interviews Sin Cara & Kalisto. Cara speaks in Spanish and Kalisto translates, saying that they have a great challenge in front of us tonight. Even though we have been teaming for a short period of time, we are confident that we can beat any tag-team in NXT. Cara again speaks in Spanish and Kalisto translates by saying that even though the Ascension is a strong tag-team, we are also a strong tag-team. We are skillful and we have that determination to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions. Cara says we look forward to the challenge.Tyle Dillinger vs. “Prince Pretty” Tyler BreezeBreeze works over Dillinger’s arm early. Dillinger counters out with a side headlock. Dillinger avoids a charge in the corner and hits a shoulder tackle. Dillinger then counters a leapfrog by Breeze with an inverted atomic drop. Chop, a snapmare and a leaping stomp by Dillinger for a nearfall. Breeze sidesteps a backdrop attempt and stomps away at Dillinger in the corner. Breeze chokes Dillinger with his boot. Breeze with a stomp to the ribs of Dillinger for a 1 count. Front chancery applied by Breeze, crowd wills on Dillinger. Dillinger drives Breeze into the corner to get free. Dillinger with a forearm and a chop in the corner, then avoids another corner charge.Breeze misses a clothesline, but catches Dillinger with the Beauty Shot for the win.Winner: “Prince Pretty” Tyler Breeze by pinfall (The Beauty Shot)Breeze checks himself in his iPhone afterwards.We go to a promo from Tyson Kidd. Kidd says at Takeover, it will be a Fatal 4-Way match for the NXT Title. One of the competitors is one of the greatest highfliers ever, something that he developed while competing in the UK. One individual as the most heart, a greatest innovator in that ring, something that he honed while in Japan. One individual in this match, some say is arrogant, self-absorbed and cocky, but he looks like a million bucks and can get away with it. One individual in this match is hungry, determined, cold, callous, ruthless and is probably the most dangerous person in this match, something he learned in the Dungeon. And then there’s Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville and Tyler Breeze, they’re in the match too, that’s how I feel about my opponents at Takeover.CommercialBack from commercial, we go to video sent in by Enzo Amore. We go to Enzo & Big Cass, who are at a hair salon entitled “Hair.” Enzo says they got someone on the inside named Carmella, who got that Victoria Secret weapon, hair removal cream, for that sweet boy, Sylvester LeFort. Cass makes a joke about if Enzo’s mother uses this cream for her back and Enzo says Cass’s mother needs to use it for her mustache. They head into the hair salon and run into Carmella. Cass shoots at Carmella’s “assets” as she greets Enzo. Enzo asks Carmella for the bucket of hair removal cream. She comes back with the cream, then a guy walks in, asking if Carmella can take care of his dog while he goes to get a wax, something these two nethandrals know nothing about. Enzo scares off the guy, then he & Cass go back-and-forth, saying the other should try out the cream to remove their chest hair. They begin arguing and the bucket of cream accidentally goes all over the dog. Enzo apologizes to Carmella, but then takes a lump of hair off the dog, showing that the cream actually works. Enzo & Cass leave as Carmella yells that she is going to get fired, then the video cuts out.Tyson Kidd vs. Adam RoseCrowd chants for Rose as the bell sounds. Rose with a side headlock and a shoulder tackle for a 1 count. Rose with a side headlock takeover, Kidd counters out with a headscissors, Rose kips up. Kidd with a gut kick, followed by a series of right hands in the corner. Rose fights back with right hands of his own. Rose then with the series of mule kicks in the corner and an elbow drop for a 1 count. Rose catches Kidd with a back elbow for a 1 count. Kidd goes onto the apron and nails Rose with an enziguri. Kidd with a running boot, followed by a neckbreaker for a nearfall. Elbow to the top of Rose’s head by Kidd, followed by a Victim Kick for a nearfall. Kidd chokes Rose in the corner with his boot and trash talks him. Kidd with knees to the face of Rose, followed by a snap suplex for a nearfall. Chinlock applied, crowd wills on Rose. Rose counters out with a jawbreaker, but Kidd holds onto him. Rose gets free with a series of back elbows, Kidd misses a clothesline and Rose with 2 flying forearms, followed by a spinebuster. Rose charges in, but Kidd catches him with a dropkick to the knee.Sharpshooter applied by Kidd, Rose taps.Winner: Tyson Kidd by submission (Sharpshooter)Kidd celebrates his win afterward.We go to a promo from Sami Zayn. Zayn says that the advantage of being a challenger in this Fatal 4-Way match at Takeover is that you don’t have to pin the champion. Now, I’ll win and pin anyone if the opportunity is there and there is the chance to win, but I’d be lying if I wouldn’t want to pin Neville because he is the champion. I don’t want there to be any excuses, I don’t want there to be any doubt, I want to beat the best man in the ring and the best man in the ring is the champion. That just so happens to be Adrian Neville, my friend, but he’s the guy I’d like to beat.CommercialBack from commercial, we go backstage as Veronica Lane interviews the Vaudevillains. Aiden English says that tonight, we prove that we a cut above Sin Cara and Kalisto and any other tag-team in NXT or WWE. Take me for instance, I am a man of artistic caliber and sophistication, as well as a physical specimen. And then there’s my partner, Simon Gotch, the strongest strongman in all of WWE. Where some men climb mountains, Simon Gotch is the only man that can actually move them. And so we take tonight to prove once again that we are superior.Sami Zayn vs. Marcus Louis w/Sylvester LeFortLouis works over Zayn’s arm early. Zayn reverses out, but Louis regains control. “OLE” chant for Zayn. Zayn reverses out again, but Louis then hits a slam. Louis with a series of gut shots, right hands and stomps to Zayn in the corner. Backbreaker by Louis for a nearfall. Chinlock applied, crowd wills on Zayn. Zayn gets to his feet, but Louis takes him back down. Zayn drives Louis into the corner to get free, but Louis with a back club. Zayn sidesteps a backdrop attempt, hits 2 clotheslines, then counters a flapjack with a dropkick.Flatliner into the Koji Clutch, Louis taps.Winner: Sami Zayn by submission (Koji Clutch)Zayn celebrates his win afterward. Zayn leaves as LeFort checks on Louis, then the Jersey Boys attack the Legionaires from behind. Enzo grabs LeFort as the Jersey Boys have the bucket of hair removal cream. Cass holds LeFort as Enzo goes to dump the bucket on LeFort, but LeFort is able to escape and runs to the back. The Jersey Boys stand tall with the bucket of cream.We go to a promo from Adrian Neville. Neville says that the obvious disadvantage with the Fatal 4-Way is that I don’t have to be pinned to lose my title and that’s a fact and its a risk, but I chose this match for a reason and if you haven’t noticed, I like to take risks and all three of these guys, I have beaten individually and now all I gotta do is beat them at the same time. Come September 11, its a challenge I’m more than ready for and its a challenge I look forward to.CommercialWe see video highlighting next week’s Takeover live special, noting that it will also be the debut of international star, KENTA.“The Eco-Warrior” CJ Parker vs. NXT Champion “The Man That Gravity Forgot” Adrian NevilleParker comes out with a sign that reads “Fossil Fuels Fools.” Parker backs Neville into the corner, but Neville goes up & over and does 2 front kip-ups. Neville goes to the apron to avoid a corner charge by Parker. Neville leaps over Parker off a springboard, then hits a flying forearm. Side headlock takeover by Neville. Neville slides under Parker’s legs, but Parker catches him with a side kick for a nearfall. Parker unloads with left hands from the mount on Neville.
