I'd love for this article to age poorly, because I got glimmers of Relentless' subtle sales pitch through the successes and failures of my rounds of combat. A unified four-person squad gets quite a few strategic options as they romp through a 15-minute Crucible battle, and I'm a fan of that strategic depth paired with a streamlined, action-focused twist on standard MOBAs. The team also has interesting ideas about "damage over time" as a constant factor: nearly every time you take damage, you get a brief window to stem the bleeding (or a clear "only five seconds left" to lash out one last time before dying and waiting for a respawn). … [Read more...] about , Amazon’s new online shooter: Alexa, does this game have a chance?

But there were new things, too, that made the service feel simultaneously tuned to this world and hopeful for a different one. A bell chimed the hour at the start of the service, and the congregation was invited to take a deep breath: a marker between one place, and one mindset, and another. During the “Prayers of the People,” the congregation prayed for the teachers of Chicago on strike. In his sermon, Thornton repeatedly, and unapologetically, invoked the consequences of capitalism — specifically the “ways it forces us to treat one another.” … [Read more...] about This Sort-Of Socialist Church Is Taking A Radical Approach To Christianity
Hon Ogbeide Ihama, is said to be the preferred aspirant of some powerful PDP leaders including former governor of the state, Chief Lucky Igbinedion and the immediate past chairman of the party, Chief Dan Orbih. It is believed that it was because of his ambition that the party structure ensured the emergence of Aziegbeni as party chairman which would be used to convince delegates to vote for an Edo South aspirant since the state chairmanship of the party was already in Edo Central. Analysts are of the view that fielding him against any APC candidate may be counterproductive as the party should have a strong candidate whose popularity transcend his Oredo federal Constituency … [Read more...] about EDO 2020: Four contenders wrestle for PDP’s ticket
Expect Stranger Things season 4 to also explore how Eleven is coping now that her telekinetic powers have deserted her – and also how she’s dealing with life after Hopper, living with the Byers in a new (as-yet unrevealed) town. While we’re pretty much certain that Stranger Things season 4 will find some way of bringing Eleven, Joyce, Jonathan and Will back to Hawkins at some point, Noah Schnapp (who plays Will) suggested in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that the story may hook up with him in a new location: “I know that I might have a separate storyline from everyone else, so we might be filming, like, in another place.” … [Read more...] about Stranger Things season 4: release date, plot, theories, and more
One, a Mr Croome, when he tired of pulling ears halfway out of our heads (I still have one that sticks out almost at right-angles) and delivering, for the smallest mistake in Latin declension, backhanded slaps that knocked one off one’s bench, delighted in saying, ‘Show me the hand that wrote this’ — then bringing down the sharp edge of a heavy ruler across the offending wrist. My next school, Heatherdown, was intended to prepare me for Eton. It was very protected, very soft, very snobbish, very different. … [Read more...] about David Niven’s stylish memoir reveals his lessons in love from a teacher wearing nothing but stockings in perfect tonic for the corona blues
Blackburn’s venues were uninterested in Smith’s designs on bringing house music to the town until Clitheroe Kate – a key figure in the town’s gay scene around Mincing Lane – rented Smith a room at a bar called Crackers. “You knew something was happening,” says Gilmartin of the first party. “It was absolutely bouncing.” After a few weeks, demand was wildly outstripping Crackers’ capacity. Smith decided to take the parties to the empty mills – relics of Margaret Thatcher’s crushing impact on the former textile town. For Smith, the parties were a vanguard against the prime minister. “She was saying there’s no such thing as society,” he says. “We were saying there is, we’ll show you – here’s 10,000 people. It was political, it was taking them on: people could come together and share collective hopes and aspirations.” … [Read more...] about Pills, mills and bellyaches: how Blackburn out-partied Manchester
