Understanding which element (fire, electric, ice) a creature uses is imperative to taking it down. And thats where the Focus comes in. The device attached to Aloys face is for more than just show it allows her to scan for weaknesses, too. You mightve seen this mechanic in games like Batman: Arkham Asylum or the dozen-or-so action game clones that have come out over the years, but the major difference here is that using the Focus prevents Aloy from doing anything else. That means no running, no dodging, no fighting at all. Knowing when to stop and scan an enemy therefore plays a major role in your combat strategy. To that end combat are generally fast-paced, almost button mashing affairs where youre trying your best to avoid projectiles, dodge incoming melee attacks and at some point fire a few shots of your own at your attackers.

ASH NYC’s second collaboration with Dig Inn takes it to Rye Brook, NY where they were charged with designing a 4,200 square foot space that promotes the small-chain restaurant’s “Dig-isms,” values that promote well-being, community, and relationships. Through design, the restaurant is divided into three separate spaces: the front-of-house dining, the food pick-up station, and a slower-paced area for evening dining and drinking. ASH uses a progression of light to dark materials to give each area its own aesthetic. The evening dining area is filled with deep saturated greens while the front of the house area is brighter, lit by pendants and large windows that play into the restaurant’s fast-but-elevated casual dining feel. ASH furnished the interiors with custom pendant lighting made from hand-blown glass globes and brass arms, custom furniture like the long oak and marble tables to encourage communal eating, and private nooks for working.

AOC AGON AG352QCX review: Gaming performance The AG352QCX has a maximum refresh rate of 200Hz, making it buttery smooth for fast-paced gaming, although the advantage this provides over 144Hz is hardly noticeable. Nevertheless, you have 200Hz at your disposal here, which for some gamersespecially competitive types – is a must. And with a low perceived response time and low input lag, the monitor flew through our tests. Better still, when adjusting its response time settings through the OSD, ghosting overshoot (which typically takes the form of shadows around objects), was barely visible. The curvature of the screen isnt as deep as the Samsung CF791 , which does take away from the immersion a touch, but nevertheless when compared with flat-panel ultrawide monitor, the AG352QCX still provides a better gaming experience. My only real complaint is that its 2,560 x 1,080 resolution, results in games not looking as crisp as they did on the 3,440 x 1,440 Samsung CF791 , but then that screen is much more expensive.

For me, it’s therapeutic. 3. Coffee When we designed our home in Los Angeles, I used Gaggenau appliances — my favorite of is the espresso machine. As a fan of modern design, this appliance blends beautifully in many kitchens and it’s a true luxury item that acts as my inspiration for creative ideas. One of my favorite creations is premium vanilla ice cream with espresso poured on top. Stop and smell the coffee, if you will. Photo by Corey Leopold 4. My hometown of Sydney, Australia Sydney is truly a beautiful and vibrant city that I still call home, even though I’ve lived in Los Angeles for the past 16 years. Sydney is multicultural, fast-paced, clean and has scenic viewpoints from wherever you stand. There’s an amazing contrast between the modern architecture and the original sandstone structures built in 1800. The most modern buildings embrace innovative trends and the latest building techniques with a strong European flavor.

Too lazy to click the link? Here's a handful of the best games available on the system today: Titanfall This is the Xbox One's Halo, the game meant to sell systems and get people playing and paying on Xbox Live. It's multiplayer only, so don't pick it up unless you want to in online. If you do though, you won't be disappointed. It's a fast-paced, dynamic showdown of man versus machine versus man inside of a machine. From GamesRadar's review: "Titanfall blends familiar concepts with innovative ideas in remarkable ways, leading to a nearly nonstop supply of awesome moments. But for as fun as it is, you'll likely find yourself wishing Respawn was more ambitious when it comes to game modes, since there's a good chance you've captured enough flags for one lifetime." Read the full Titanfall review on GamesRadar Forza Horizon 2 Let's face it, Gran Turismo is asleep at the wheel and the only way to put the pedal to the metal is on Xbox One.

Set in Los Angeles, the show follows high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (a brilliant Kim Dickens fresh from Treme) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) as they adapt to a life after the 'zombie' outbreak. The show is slow paced, each episode is an hour and there's a 90-minute pilot, but it manages to approach the Walking Dead world in a wholly different way. Seasons on Amazon Prime: 1 Billy Bob Thornton stars as a washed-up lawyer looking for a big break who stumbles on to a big case that may well give him the solace he needs. Made by David E Kelly who loves a bit of courtroom drama, having already created Boston Legal, The Practice and Ally McBeal, the show works well as a standalone series but there's talk that it may get a second season. Goliath is part of Amazon's Original series of TV shows. Seasons on Amazon Prime: 1 To be honest, were surprised that Amazon has been so quiet about The Grand Tour .

This new game type welds together King of the Hill and a card game. All of Halos units and special general abilities appear in Blitz as cards that can be played to the field. So, instead of a base that churns out units, if you want to spawn a warthog you need to have one in your hand and enough energy to play it. Energy comes to you as a constant drip so you only need to wait long enough for it to accrue to play your more expensive cards. The aim of the game is to be the first to 200 points. You score points by holding the majority of the capture points on the map. These simple systems bleed together to make a fast-paced cutthroat multiplayer game. Holding the points is all that matters because it doesnt take long to amass 200 points, so youll see players racing to take the points with cheap units early in a game and try to swap them out with more powerful things as they can afford them.

Over the next few weeks, we became friends. Well, almost-friends. I didn't really have friends in prison.

Cybersecurity threats both new and known, from Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), to the Internet of Things (IoT), to the shortage of cyberworkers, threaten us each day. To help protect ourselves and our customers, we mobilize threat intelligence and machine learning, a mindset of “assume breach” and much more. Across the world, countless businesses take part in this same point, counter point every day. This dynamic interplay makes cybersecurity one of the most fast-paced parts of the tech industry. Microsoft has remained at the leading edge with a track record of security innovation and investment – most notably in Windows 10.

AG: So, the Bernina Gran Turismo runs along the same mountain pass roadways used back in the ‘20s-‘30s hill climb races? FS: Yes. Exactly, it’s the same pass. We didn't want to use the name and not have the correct course. We thought that would not make sense; why revive something if it's not as close as possible to what it used to be? AG: How long is the course? FS: It’s 5.7 kilometers long, but it’s a complex fast-paced run, so the distance is a little deceiving on paper. AG: How many participants generally compete? What's the the thinking behind this? FS: This year we are expecting 80 cars. Honestly, that’s probably going to be the maximum we’ll ever allow to enter because we want to keep it a really private event. We don't want to dilute the quality of the cars. Because of the history we don't want a bunch of so-so cars showing up and separating this event from the original one with their presence.

Not bad for a game costing you a grand total of free. Download here: Neverwinter 3. Hawken Fast-paced multiplayer mech battles with smart matchmaking to help you find suitable opponents When it comes to the pure escapism of videogames, few things are as empowering as jumping into a powered-up mech and fighting it out with other players like a bunch of jacked-up gunslingers. Hawken has this cool factor in spades, with its mixture of classic match types (team death match, capture the flag, etc) all given a new lease of life thanks to the fast-paced action of Hawkens mech-based firefights. There are nine maps to choose from and a matchmaking system that slots you into lobbies full of players of similar experience level. However, the players at the top of the rankings have earned their lofty perches, so youll want to spend some time learning how to rack up kills with us mere mortals before testing your mettle against Hawkens elite.
