Full Metal Furies immediately puts me in the mind of those old coin-op arcade games based on franchises like X-Men and The Simpsons . Or even more recent examples, like The Behemoth's wonderful brawler, Castle Crashers . Well. This one comes from Cellar Door Games, the talented indie team behind Rogue Legacy . The earlier game twisted the "roguelike" genre with its unusual (and completely engaging) approach to long-term play: each "life" was the next generation in a family line, with different genetic traits tweaking how subsequent generations played. Full Metal Furies ' trailer describes the game as "not your typical brawler." The trailer is mostly focused on looking cool, but check out Cellar Door's website if you're curious to know more about how this game stands apart. Read more...

We here at TopSpeed will take any and every opportunity we can to celebrate the glorious amazing awesomeness that is the automobile. But PresidentsDay is kinda tricky – after all, the Commander-in-chief doesnt drive , he’s driven , right? But that got us thinking – what if a select number of U.S. presidents (both past and present) did drive? What would be their chariot of choice? What four-wheeled machine would accurately reflect their policies, their demeanor, their legacy? These are all very important questions, and we think we’ve got the answers right here in the following special holiday list. Of course, we couldnt give a spot to all 44 men to ever hold the highest office in the land, so instead, we went with just five. Most are relatively recent, but we couldnt resist adding in a bit of a throwback as well. So read on, and dont hesitate to let us know your thoughts on which car you think the president (any president) would drive. Continue reading for the full list.

Update: We've added Super Mario Maker 3DS to our list of must-own titles. Ever since it launched the wildly successful Game Boy, Nintendo has been the company to beat in the handheld gaming market. Able to boast some of the most successful handheld console sales in history as well as some of the most groundbreaking designs, the company has an impressive legacy. It's a legacy that the company's most recent handheld, the 3DS, only seems to have strengthened. Though it didn't get off to the most ideal start largely due to its comparatively high launch price the 3DS has now been on the market for almost six years and in that time it's sold more than 62 million units. In light of that we think it's safe to say it's become a success. Six years is a long time for any technology to be on the market, never mind a console. Despite that, we're not ready to move on from the 3DS and neither, it seems, is Nintendo.

He lived in an age where many of the noble ideals in the charter were frequently disregarded.

A sunset budget for CY Leungs administration Paul Chan Mo-po will on Wednesday hand down the last budget for the administration of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, whose term expires in June. But at the same time, its validity will last through to the end of the financial year next March nine months after the new chief executive has stepped into the job. All eyes will be on how Leungs administration strikes a balance between retaining its legacy on housing development and...

McGahn, for his part, has always been proud of his bomb-throwing FEC legacy. “I think it was Gene Simmons from KISS who said, ‘There’s no such thing as bad publicity,’” he told the trade publication Campaigns Elections in 2013, a few months after leaving the agency. “I beat [good-government reformers] at their own game.” “The more they screamed, the more I knew I was doing the right thing,” he added. Years later, McGahn’s FEC tenure is instructive as he settles into his role as the White House counsel, advising President Trump on conflicts of interest, national security, executive orders, campaign finance, regulations and, most recently, Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch. McGahn took the lead in vetting Gorsuch and was the only staffer to sit in on Trump’s meeting with the judge in Trump Tower in mid-January, giving McGahn a leading role in perhaps the longest-lasting decision of Trump’s presidency.

Saul David Alinsky died 36 years before the election of Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton’s first attempt at the presidency. But many feverish screeds on social media, talk radio, and YouTube might have made one think he lurked behind these politicians like a Rasputin or Grima Wormtongue . Spoken of by many on the right as a servant of the devil , “ American Joseph Goebbels ,” and “ dangerous harbinger of insurrection ,” Alinsky developed a reputation for insidiousness that may far exceed his influence, considerable though it may be. But liberals and leftists have no special purchase on Alinsky’s legacy. As one particularly thoughtful and eloquent pundit recently wrote , “the Right has taken Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and shoved it up where #TheResistance dont shine.” Not long before this charming appropriation, Alinsky’s 1971 manual of political warfare found its way into the hands of some of the same Tea Party organizers who had made his name synonymous with everything they despised about the left.

With the likes of Ford and Peugeot having no UK production plants, what effect does this have on UK market share? If PSA emerges victorious in the takeover of Opel- Vauxhall , it will be fascinating if a lesson from the past influences its strategy for the future. Peugeot , many will remember, once had a huge manufacturing footprint in the UK, a legacy of buying Rootes Group in 1978. But rationalisation reduced its UK production to the point where it was assembling the 206 supermini from kits of parts mostly trucked in from France. PSA closed its last UK plant at Ryton, Coventry in January 2007 with the loss of 2300 jobs after deciding that it wasnt worth investing to integrate the British plant into its European factory network to build the 207. Ever since, Peugeot’s share of UK new car sales has been on the slide, a decline that might shine some light on the future actions of PSA’s current CEO Carlos Tavares (pictured below), if he ever comes to decide the future of Vauxhall’s plants at Ellesmere Port and Luton, homes to the Astra and Vivaro van, respectively.

Obama must “protect” his legacy, as he says. As well, he must protect himself from prosecution. The entire Bush/Clinton/Obama cartel is in Barry Soetoro’s hands. Unfortunately for the cartel, Barry screws up a lot causing the rogue CIA to have to cover his tracks throughout his entire CIA-directed and controlled life. King Obama and his Sith Lord, the Evil Emperor George Soros, have overplayed their hand. They are caught red-handed, literally bloodstained, and have no defense for their illegal and inhumane disregard for human life, sovereign nations, or peace among nations. Internet investigative journalists have followed the money and shown the insipid subversion of the American political system. Even Republicans have been paid off by Soros money through Hillary’s Super PAC and outright donations and gifts – and that doesnt count pay-offs to offshore accounts.

I can tell you that what is in Anthony Weiner’s hard drive, and what videos exist via Jeffery Epstein, WILL BRING massive arrests – in time. Trump’s legacy could be truly great if he was to purge the CIA, stop the extortion, prosecute the pedophiles and reinstate the death penalty for pedo’s convicted a second time. Pedogate is his path to greatness. Q. How does Russia fit into all this? A. The CIA and Israel are responsible for the creation of Isis. Isis was created specifically to weaken Iran and destabilize Syria. It worked for awhile until Putin shored up Assad and bolstered Iranian Qud forces. The real reason you see such anti-Russian fever from both Schumer and McCain, Graham and Feinstein, is because the operation has blown up in our faces. Q. Is Israel behind the anti Russian sentiment? A. Yes. Israeli intelligence is furious with Trump, and will do anything to keep Trump from working with Putin.

When Kevin Naik wanted to do a PhD at the interface of robotics and Internet of Things, it wasnt Ahmedabad University (AU) that first came to mind. Like many his age, he first wrote to professors at three IITsDelhi, Mumbai and Gandhinagar. The IIT faculty had clear research goals for themselves and their groups and Naik’s plans didnt quite fit in. That’s when he looked to AU, where he found a willing professor – along with freedom to develop his own interests in a PhD. “Robotics and IoT are an unusual combination,” says Naik. “So only a small faculty is working in this area.” In contrast to the IIT legacy, AU is relatively new —just eight years old —with little reputation outside Gujarat. It makes up by providing flexibility in choice of research. AU enjoys another distinctive edge: a large endowment that provides plenty of leeway to students and faculty.
