An eye-watering amount of artwork is available for this PC and PS4 game a fast and fun arcade-style shooter with RPG elements. The lead designer is Metroid Prime's Todd Keller, who has an eye for sleek, sexy imagery. Todd Keller, Thomas Pringle and Craig Sellars all feature but what particularly captured our eyes was the character art by Callum Alexander Watt . The sketched features and costumes echo Yoji Shinkawa's famous work for Metal Gear Solid. But do check out the other artwork as it's all excellent. This online co-op sequel was cancelled last year even though it went to beta testing. Thankfully, artist Billy Wimblett put up a selection of concept artwork, so even if you never get to play it, at least it's possible to partially experience it. There's oodles of character art, Demon Doors and a lot of scary plants. This picture is described by Billy as, "Dormant and "oh s***" states for a lair in Darkwood.

Youve portrayed him, an Arab, as a full-bodied character. Someone to whom we can give our trust, our love, our empathy. Those crazy fanatics do everything they can to brainwash us into believing all Arabs as grotesque, frightening, violent and you come along saying that Arabs are human? That they resemble us, Jews? Have you gone mad? Random House By noon on that New Years Eve, the ripples had reached news outlets overseas, and the disqualification of All the Rivers was being reported in the media in Europe and beyond. By the time I got home, television crews from Japan, Al Jazeera and NBC were perched on my doorstep. Yaels bitter prophecy had come true. All the Rivers touched a raw nerve in Israeli society. The book tries to address the Jewish fear of losing our identity in the Middle East. And yet that very fear condemned it to official rejection.

We give scientists and engineers great technical training, but we're not as good at teaching ethical decision-making or building character. Take, for example, the environmental crisis that recently unfolded in Flint, Michigan -- and the professionals there who did nothing to fix it. Siddhartha Roy helped prove that Flint's water was contaminated, and he tells a story of science in service to the public good, calling on the next generation of scientists and engineers to dedicate their work to protecting people and the planet.

There was a hefty backlash when this didnt appear. Video of Star Wars Battlefront II: Full Length Reveal Trailer But, space battles are coming. Criterion - best known for the Burnout series - is handling the vehicle side of things this year and you’ll soon be “weaving between asteroid fields and flying through imperial dockyards in high stakes dogfights” says EA. Star Wars Battlefront 2 will have multiplayer classes More of the original game’s biggest criticisms? It didnt have class-based multiplayer combat. Rather, you chose your loadout on any character skin you chose, it felt a little basic, and there wasnt this rock, paper, scissors-like system found in say, Blizzard’s Overwatch or Call of Duty . Star Wars Battlefront II - Standard Edition [PC Code - Origin] £54.99 Buy now Multiplayer classes are a thing, though. There’ll be four trooper classes to choose from when the game launches; Officer, Assault, Trooper and Specialist, although specific details on which abilities and weapons each class possess remains to be seen.

19. Logan It’s the final hurrah for Hugh Jackman in the role of Wolverine, as he retires his character in Logan . An adaptation of the Old Man Logan comic book story, the film sees him reunited with Patrick Stewart as Professor X. The Wolverine director James Mangold returned for this one, too. Review 18. Spider-Man: Homecoming In some respects, Marvel's already done the hard bit: Tom Holland's introduction as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War was widely regarded as one of the film's highlights, so the studio can at least rest assured that it has that piece of the puzzle safely in place. The broader question is whether this new Web-Slinger movie, the first collaboration between Marvel and Sony, and the big-budget debut of Cop Car director Jon Watts, can succeed where the most recent Spider-Man movies faltered. Our hope? That Homecoming avoids the mistakes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 , which heaped its basket with so many villains and plot-lines that it often felt more like a series of trailers than a coherent movie.

These desks were built to age, add a sense of warmth and character to the stark white walls, gradient Pantone books and tchotchkes collected over years of travels. We’ve got 2 closed off areas, one serves as the formal conference room for client meetings and the other as a telephone booth for private calls. Finally and most importantly, we designed a custom 12 foot solid maple wood bar with rotating wheels, which allows us to create a multipurpose area for entertaining. How long have you been in this space? Where did you work before that? We started off in an 800 square foot space on Broadway one block up from Canal St, it was a decried textile building with a not so friendly elevator guy. There were no windows and during summer time it was pretty unbearable. We then moved to our current building and took up a photography studio which was larger than our needs, we really made it ours but with the exponential growth of the team and our client base we quickly outgrew the space.

Oh yes.

Thus far, we know that Chadwick Boseman is taking on the title role, having successfully debuted the character of Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War . Furthermore, Tessa Thompson is reuniting with her Creed director Ryan Coogler for the movie too. The latest addition? That’d be Lupita Nyong’o, an Oscar-winner for her work in 12 Years A Slave , and seen more recently in Star Wars: The Force Awakens . Michael B.

When it comes to writing text for your blog and social media posts, many marketers wonder, "But what's the character limit?" It's never a simple question -- sometimes, it's answered by parameters established by certain channels. And on other occasions, it's more a question of what's ideal . For example, you probably know the character limit for a tweet is 140, but did you know that the ideal length is actually less than that? (Hold tight -- we'll explain why.) While we've written before about optimizing your actual content, we thought it would be helpful to gather the numbers of character limits -- both enforced and ideal -- for different online channels, all in one place. Below, you'll find a more detailed guide to character limits and ideal character counts for posts on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, SnapChat, and YouTube.

Enlarge (credit: HBO ) Note: Silicon Valley season four airs in the UK on Sky Atlantic at 10pm on Mondays. Stop me if you've heard this one before: On Silicon Valley , the show's main character, Richard Hendriks (Thomas Middleditch) is actually facing some small degree of success. But he panics in the face of it, then runs headlong into an awkward confrontation with his peers at tech start-up Pied Piper, before drastically changing gears. That's exactly the quandary that Hendriks finds himself in at the beginning of Silicon Valley 's new season, which premiered on Sunday. The last season ended with Richard's flailing company getting back on track by "pivoting" to a new idea: video chat, a side project invented by Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) that his coworkers mocked until it inadvertently became a success.

In addition, there was the superb soundtrack by director Jean-Mac Vallee, who told Variety he had created playlists for each character. Lucy Mangan in The Guardian says a series that started off as "Desperate Housewives with even more money" soon evolved into "something much better". According to the critic, Big Little Lies "sets up all the cliches of female rivalry" and deconstructs them with the help of a marquee cast giving "career-best performances". Emily Nussbaum in the New Yorker agrees the show seemed "a prestige TV twist" on the Real Housewives, but deepened to become "a reflection on trauma". At its best, she adds, "it makes risky observations, especially about the dynamics of domestic abuse". Some - "mostly male" - critics sneered at it as "trashy" and "soap", writes Claire Corbett in The Monthly . However, while the "fairytale structure" may have confused them, it wouldn't confuse viewers, she continues, and its portrayals of modern parenting "ring true" in the affluent west, where these psychodramas continue to be played out on the world stage.
