    Season 3 Trailer

    So what do you guys think? Did you enjoy season 2 like i did? Are you pumped for season 3?  Leave you interesting comments below and lets have a chat 😀

  • Madhouse Isn’t Doing One Punch Man Season 2

    When hit anime One Punch Man comes back for its second season, the studio that handled it the first time around won’t be returning.

    Madhouse did season one, which debuted in 2015. That studio has an impressive resume, animating some of the most iconic modern anime, such as Perfect Blue, Death Note, and Paprika.

    Season two, however, will be animated by J.C. Staff. Also, season one’s original director Shingo Natsume won’t be returning, and Chikara Sakurai will instead be taking the helm.

    Below is an interview with Natsume that was uploaded this past summer in which he talks about One Punch Man.

    One Punch Man season 2 is currently in production, but it doesn’t yet have a broadcast date.

  • How genes impact our appetites

    How much can we control our own weight?

    A faulty gene affecting our brain’s circuits can impact on appetite making us feel hungry when we shouldn’t be, researchers have found.

    Professor Sadaf Farooqi, Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Fellow and Professor of Metabolism and Medicine at the University of Cambridge, has looked at the impact genes have on the regulation of our appetite and body weight.


    How Do Genes Control Weight?

    Our body weight is determined by the amount of energy or calories that we eat and the number of calories we burn up doing whatever we do in our everyday lives. Rather like these scales, if we eat more calories than we burn, we tip the balance the wrong way and put on weight.

    In today’s world, we all have easy access to high fat and high calorie foods and many of us have a reduced need for physical exertion during our working and home lives. This can lead over a period of time to a gain in weight. So is it simply about eating too much food and taking too little exercise? And why do some people put on weight more easily than others?

    We know that not everyone in the same environment will put on weight, so there must be something else involved? There is a lot of evidence to show that genes play a major role in determining our weight in the same way as they control the colour of our hair and eyes. We also know that weight problems can run in families.

    Here in Cambridge, we have gone on to discover that sometimes being overweight from a very young age can be due to a faulty gene. This faulty gene may cause someone to always feel hungry, especially as a child. It may also affect the way calories are used up from the food we eat and cause excess calories to be stored as fat


    Learn About Genes

    I’m sure you have heard people say “it’s in your genes” as this is often how we explain the many different characteristics which make each and everyone one of us unique.

    In fact, we all inherit two copies of every gene, one from our mother and one from our father.  This means that members of the same family tend to be similar, as they are likely to have fewer differences in their genes.


    How do genes work?

    Our bodies are made up of many tiny units called cells each containing a complete copy of a person’s genes. We all have many thousands of genes and they contain the “genetic instructions” that we inherit from our parents. These “instructions” make us have blonde or dark hair, blue or brown eyes and even determine our body shape. They also control the way every cell in our body develops and grows and what it will do in our body, so they are very important!

     

    Genes are made from a “chemical” called “DNA” (deoxyribonucleic acid) and are arranged in a specific sequence along very long thread-like structures of DNA called chromosomes, rather like a string of beads.

    We all have approximately 30 to 40,000 genes stretched out along our DNA. Scientists have discovered what some of these genes do and how changes in these genes can cause particular disorders or diseases. There are however many genes which we still don’t know much about.

    The genetic information in the DNA of our genes is in the form of a code and this is known as the “genetic code”.


    How does the genetic code work?

    It is all rather complicated. You need to think of the DNA being made of 2 strands of a mix of 4 different chemicals called “bases” which face each other and connect as pairs rather like the rungs of a ladder.

    We use the first letter of each chemical as our code, so there is: Adenine, Thiamine, Cytosine and Guanine (ATCG). These 4 letters we will call “the DNA alphabet” and in the same way that letters of the alphabet combine to form words and sentences that mean something when we read them, the order of these chemicals are the “letters” which spell out the genetic code and the instructions to our bodies.

    A single gene may be many thousands of letters long rather like the MC4R gene shown here.

     


    What do these letters mean?

    This is where it gets even more complicated. To be able to understand the code it needs to be read as “3 letter words” called “codons” and each set of 3 letters correspond to another chemical called an “amino acid”.

    There are 20 different amino acids that can be made from the different word combinations and our bodies use them to make proteins, often referred to as the “building blocks” of our body. Many different proteins can be made such as keratin in our hair or haemoglobin in our blood to carry the oxygen that we breathe-in to all parts of our body.

    So, genes are pieces of DNA that give instructions using chemically coded “messages” that can make proteins for our bodies to use. There may be hundreds, or even thousands, of three letter words in each gene message and sometimes things can go wrong.


    What happens when there are changes in the genetic code?

    If a single letter (base) in the sequence is out of place, a “spelling mistake” can occur. This can result in different “messages” that our bodies can’t understand, or a protein that doesn’t work properly or at all.

    Individual letters or one or more whole words can be missing or even extra to what is required. In fact, even a whole gene can be missing!

    As DNA passes from one generation to another through our genes, changes can happen to the code and these changes are known as “mutations”.


    What is a mutation?

    A mutation or faulty gene is a permanent change in a gene which may cause a problem with the development and functioning of many different parts of our body. Not all mutations cause problems.

    A mutation can occur in several ways. Some faulty genes are inherited from our parents and may run in the family. Others can occur spontaneously and are called “de novo” mutations and may explain why a child can have a particular condition or disease even if there is no history of anyone else having the disease in the family.

    The DNA code can also be changed by errors in the chromosomes.


    What Genes Have We Found?

    The first gene we found was the leptin gene in 1997. Children with a problem in the leptin gene put on weight very quickly and at a very early age.

    The children are always hungry, never feel full and will seek out and ask for food even after they have just eaten. The reason for this continual drive to eat is because the children are lacking the hormone leptin which sends messages to the brain to tell us to stop eating because we are full.  For these children, it has been possible to treat them with daily injections of the hormone leptin. The children are now normal weight, and it has also reversed a number of other problems that can be caused by the lack of leptin.

    Leptin deficiency is very rare. We have now identified 11 other genes that can cause severe weight gain and we expect to find more with the new technologies that are now available to us.

    We would, however, like to tell you a little bit about one of these genes called Melanocortin-4-Receptor (MC4R) because it is the commonest cause of severe weight problems in children. Many families with MC4R gene problems have very kindly come to Cambridge to help us with our studies and with their help we have learnt a lot about this gene. We know that the MC4R gene is involved in the same pathway in the brain as leptin, so children often feel hungry all the time. Children (and adults) are often very tall, and tests of body composition show an increase in bone and muscle mass compared to patients without this gene problem. We have also found that patients with an MC4R problem do not burn up the calories from food efficiently.   One of the most important findings was that the MC4R gene is also involved in controlling blood pressure, something that will often be high in people that are overweight. We found that many of our MC4R patients had relatively normal blood pressures and we are looking into what this means for the heart.

    For many of the gene problems that we have identified, including MC4R, there is no obvious treatment available immediately. In fact, finding the gene is the first step to understanding why someone is gaining weight and therefore finding the right treatment.

    So do you guys think? how do you feel like genetics play a role in our appetite and obesity? Leave you interesting comments below and lets have a discussion.

  • Killing Floor 2 just got a lot harder with this weekly challenge mode

    With last week’s ludicrous big-head mode still on our minds, the new Killing Floor 2 Weekly Outbreak is a little less lighthearted. You’ll fight an insane amount of Fleshpounds in the “Poundemonium” Outbreak, but they’re not all created equal.

    Via Tripwire: “The mode has two new zeds—a Quarter Pound which is a mini Fleshpound, which behaves differently than a regular Fleshpound. They have less health, are in much higher numbers, and move much faster than a regular Fleshpound. The other is a King Fleshpound, which is the ‘big daddy’ of all Fleshpounds. He has a new attack and is the boss for this mode. The chest beam attack is something he uses when he gets really pissed and the player is too far for his melee to hit his target. The beam attack does a lot of damage, the best way to dodge is to get behind cover or crouch, which will have the beam fly over your head.”

    Tripwire says to expect “a lot, and I mean a lot of both Quarter Pounds and regular Fleshpounds mixed with lower level supporting zeds,” with the King Fleshpound replacing KF2’s standard bosses. No problem, right?

    On top of that, Weekly Outbreaks have to be completed on ‘Suicidal’ difficulty, so good luck surviving wave after wave of KF2’s toughest zed. Complete the ‘Poundemonium’ challenge, and you’ll earn a unique cosmetic item called the Fleshpound Visor.

    This is one of several time-limited challenges running until August, as Tripwire creative director Bill Munk announced at the PC Gaming Show last month at E3.

    Here’s the rest of the schedule:

    July 18 – Up, Up and Decay – Try to make ninety-nine Zed balloons.

    Shooting Zeds in this outbreak will cause them to inflate like balloons, even to the point of floating away and popping!

    July 25 – Zed Time – All the Zed Time in the world.

    Ever think that life is passing you by? Not in this outbreak! You’ll be in Zed Time any time you’re near a Zed.

    August 1 – Beefcake – Bigger they are, harder you fall.

    In this outbreak, Zeds increase their health, size, and reach when they hit players or are affected by certain Zed abilities.

    August 8 – Boom – Zeds under pressure; may explode.

    Maybe it was something they ate? Bad gas? Whatever it was, Zeds explode when killed in this outbreak.

  • Overwatch: Doomfist Origin Story Trailer and abilites

    Biography

    DOOMFIST

    BIOGRAPHY
    Real Name: Akande Ogundimu, Age: 45
    Occupation: Mercenary
    Base of Operations: Oyo, Nigeria
    Affiliation: Talon
    “Only through conflict do we evolve.”

    Recently freed from imprisonment, Doomfist is determined to plunge the world into a new conflict that he believes will make humanity stronger.
    Akande Ogundimu was born into a well-regarded Nigerian family, heir to its prosthetic-technology company. A highly intelligent and charismatic figure, Ogundimu helped to expand his family’s business and position it for the future while dedicating his free time to his first love: competitive martial arts. He trained in traditional African fighting styles, including Dambe and Gidigbo, as well as in wrestling and other modern combat systems, incorporating the most effective techniques into his repertoire. Ogundimu competed in tournaments all over the continent, utilizing his intuition and ability to read opponents alongside his tremendous speed and strength.
    But when he lost his right arm in the aftermath of the Omnic Crisis, it seemed his martial arts career was finished before he had reached his prime. His company’s cybernetic prosthetics allowed him to recover from his injuries, even making him stronger, but these enhancements rendered him ineligible for competition. He tried to devote himself to his business with the same zeal that he had for fighting, but he found nothing that could fill the void… until he was given a new opportunity by Akinjide Adeyemi, better known to the world as the second Doomfist, the Scourge of Numbani.
    Adeyemi offered Ogundimu the chance to fight with him as a mercenary. Initially wary, Ogundimu accepted, and discovered that he now had an arena in which he could unleash his enhanced capabilities. Eventually, Adeyemi brought him into the Talon organization. Talon’s belief that humanity would be made stronger through conflict resonated with Ogundimu’s personal experiences. Moreover, Talon’s power struggles presented a new challenge that allowed him to use his talent in the boardroom along with his cunning as a combatant.
    Adeyemi was a useful asset to Talon, but the organization saw far greater potential in Ogundimu, with his intelligence and his ability to inspire as a commander. While Adeyemi was content to profit from raids on Numbani, Ogundimu had a grander vision. This difference in aspiration would lead Ogundimu to kill his teacher and take on the mantle of Doomfist, along with the eponymous gauntlet.
    As the new Doomfist, Ogundimu rose high in Talon and helped to orchestrate a conflict that the organization hoped would someday engulf the world. However, before their plan came to fruition, Ogundimu was defeated and captured by an Overwatch strike team that included Tracer, Winston, and Genji. He was imprisoned in a maximum-security facility for years, where he waited patiently for events he had incited to play out.
    Finally, he sensed that the time had come for him to return. He broke out of his prison and recovered Doomfist’s gauntlet in a one-sided battle with Numbani’s newly unveiled OR15 defense robots. Now, he has retaken his place in Talon’s inner council, ready to spark a war that will consume the world once again.

    ROLE: OFFENSIVE

    DIFFICULTY 3 stars

    Doomfist’s cybernetics make him a highly-mobile, powerful frontline fighter. In addition to dealing ranged damage with his Hand Cannon, Doomfist can slam the ground, knock enemies into the air and off balance, or charge into the fray with his Rocket Punch. When facing a tightly packed group, Doomfist leaps out of view, then crashes down to earth with a spectacular Meteor Strike.

    ABILITIES

     

     

    HAND CANNON

    Doomfist fires a short-range burst from the knuckles of his fist. Its ammunition is automatically regenerated over a short time.

     

    SEISMIC SLAM

    Doomfist leaps forward and smashes into the ground, knocking nearby enemies toward him.

     

    RISING UPPERCUT

    Doomfist uppercuts enemies in front of him into the air.

     

    ROCKET PUNCH

    After charging up, Doomfist lunges forward and knocks an enemy back, dealing additional damage if they impact a wall.

     

    THE BEST DEFENSE…

    Doomfist generates temporary personal shields when he deals ability damage.

     

    METEOR STRIKE

    Doomfist leaps into the sky, then crashes to the ground, dealing significant damage.

    So what do you guys think? are you pumped to finally see Doomfist making his appearance in Overwatch? Leave your interesting comments below and lets have chat about it ! 😀

  • Nintendo Switch Details Released

    Now that Nintendo’s event is over, we finally got more information about their flagship console. The Switch will release globally on March 3, 2017 alongside the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1 2 Switch, Nintendo is sprinting out of the gates with a surprising price point and some strong exclusive titles for £280/$299. The European price will be set by retailers, with pre-orders yet to open.

    The number of games announced throughout Nintendo’s recent presser was pretty overwhelming, so we’ve listed all we have so far below:

    • 1 2 Switch
    • Arms
    • Splatoon 2
    • Super Mario Odyssey
    • Xenoblade Chronicles 2
    • Fire Emblem Warriors
    • Shin Megami Tensei Switch
    • Project Octopath Traveler
    • No More Heroes 3
    • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
    • Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
    • FIFA 18
    • The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
    • Super Bomberman R
    • NBA 2K18
    • Ultra Street Fighter 2
    • Minecraft

    • Disgaea 5
    • I Am Setsuna
    • Rayman Legends
    • STEEP
    • Redout

    The Spec’s

    As we know the Nintendo Switch is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra processor with a GPU akin to architecture found in some of the company’s top-notch graphics cards.
    When in “Nintendo Switch Dock” that is used to connect to your TV. Once removed from the dock, it will automatically transition to portable mode. When away from the dock the Switch will use only 40% of its potential GPU power.
    The GPU will run at 768MHz when plugged in and 307.2MHz when used on the go. This could change before release, but it’s unfortunate to see such a drop in performance when using what is arguably the console’s biggest selling point.

    Other details announced:

    • Console comes with 32GB of storage – expandable with a MicroSD card slot
    • Plans to end regional locking – meaning games could be played on all consoles – no matter where in the world they were bought
    • Multiplayer online gaming – initially free but later paid-for
    • A smartphone app for social aspects of games including chat function

    The reveal trailer also gave us a glimpse at the new and improved gamepad, which will be rechargeable through the console itself and capable of accepting cartridges: Switch’s primary form of physical media when it comes to games. The battery life can range from 3 to 6 1/2 hours depending on the game you’re playing. For example, Breath of the Wild will keep you going for 3 hours after a full charge.

    A Pro Controller, in the style of a traditional console controller, costs $69.99 (£57.50), additional Joy-Con controllers are $79.99 and a spare dock to use the Switch with another TV or monitor is $89.99.
    As previously rumoured, the gamepad’s screen will render at a native 720p, and can be used to project any and all games to your TV of choice.

    Top Nintendo Switch games to watch out for

    Super Mario Odyssey

    Release Date: Winter 2017

    Odyssey is a fully-fledged 3D Mario experience, echoing the open world design found in Nintendo Gamecube’s Super Mario Sunshine. The reveal trailer showcased a mixture of realistic and fantastical environments alongside a slew of innovative new gameplay mechanics. Mario can now hurl his signature red hat at enemies while also using it as a handy platform for reaching precarious new areas.

    Splatoon 2

    Release Date: Summer 2017

    None of us were expecting a direct sequel to Splatoon so soon after the first, especially one that oozes such a charming sense of lovable style. The inklings are back with new weapons, maps and fabulous outfits to duke it out with. The objective remains the same: cover the map in as much gooey paint as possible before time run outs. Alongside new game modes, Splatoon 2 will also support local multiplayer for the very first time using the Switch’s Joycon controllers.

    1 2 Switch

    Release Date: March 3, 2017

    1 2 Switch is essentially a collection of traditional and motion controlled minigames that can be played by using the Nintendo Switch’s Joycon controllers. These games are designed to showcase the system’s capabilities while also encouraging you and your friends to get off the sofa and have some fun. Experiences range from a western shoot-out to a fast paced game of table tennis. There is plenty here that should entertain family and friends at launch who are trying out Switch for the very first time.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    Monolith Soft arguably stole the show with this surprise announcement, blowing us away with a trailer featuring some truly gorgeous environments and a goosebump-inducing orchestral score. Acting as a direct sequel to the Nintendo 3DS original, Xenoblade 2 will likely provide us with a vast open world to explore filled with monsters, quests and characters to encounter. The last game in the franchise, Xenoblade Chronicles X, was a masterful swansong for Wii U, and this could usher in a new age for JRPGs on the Switch.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Release Date: March 3, 2017

    After months of rampant rumours and speculation, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is finally confirmed as a launch title for Nintendo Switch. The happy news was broken with an achingly beautiful new trailer that shows Princess Zelda and a range of other characters speaking for the very first time. Breath of the Wild marks the first time in history where Hyrule will be dotted with voiced NPCs, interacting with Link as he explores the world in search of mythical treasures and dungeons.

    The games listed above are just some of titles coming to Nintendo Switch in 2017. We’ll be putting a together an upcoming games round-up in the near future, so keep an eye out for that.

    So what do you guys think? Are you excited for the switch or do you feel like its massively under powered and overpriced? Leave your interesting comments below and lets have a discussion.

  • Video Game Releases For December 2016

    It’s that time of the year with friend and family coming over for the holidays, but when it’s also time for some great game releases, so let’s have a look at what’s upcoming:  

    So here are some of the big video game releases for the month of December 2016.

    DEC. 1:

    Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (Android and iOS)  

    With the Ace Attorney coming to the mobile platform. This is fourth entry in the visual novel series was the first not to have Phoenix Wright in the lead role, fulfilling the wishes of its creator, Shu Takumi. The Android version of the game will be released one week later on Dec. 8.

    DEC. 2:

    Steep (PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One)

    It’s been awhile since we have had some extreme sports games, and with Steep it looks like we have a return to the genre. Steep is an open-world game that combines a variety of extreme sports, including snowboarding, skiing and gliding through the air in a wingsuit.

    Super Mario Maker (Nintendo 3DS)

    Nintendo has finally made a portable version of last year’s Wii U game will let players create and play their own Mario levels in the style of Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros.Players will be able to share their Mario creations via local wireless and StreetPass, but players won’t be able to upload them to the internet for others to play, which really is a bad decision on Nintendo part.  

    Dead Rising 4 (Windows PC and Xbox One)

    Dead Rising series has always been a fun game and with the fourth entry it looks like they are keeping the silliness and bringing back Frank West. ‘ The fourth entry in the wacky zombie punching simulator will drop the timer restrictions, letting players explore the open world and not “feel like they’re under the gun.” In one of the game’s downloadable add-ons, Frank West will have a limited amount of time to find a cure, lest he become a zombie himself.

    The Last Guardian (PlayStation 4)

    After years in the making and lots of delays, Team Ico’s long-awaited release is finally here. Now here hoping that this is not going to be a let down like with the long awaited Duke Nukem Forever was.

    Bastion (Xbox One)

    Bastion was one of my favourite games I played on steam and now with its release on Xbox One, Supergiant Games’ debut role-playing game is available on nearly every platform known to man. You can play it on a Chromebook, seriously. Owners of the original release on Xbox 360 will get a copy of the game for free as long as they redeem it before Jan. 1, 2017.

    Super Mario Run (iOS)  

    Nintendo’s key character and everyone’s favorite plumber will star in his very own auto-run platformer on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices for the first time. Nintendo believes Super Mario Run cost of £9.99. A free version of the game will be available, showcasing all three modes of the title. There is no word on when the game will be coming to Android devices as of yet.

    The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (Android, iOS, macOS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One)

    Set almost four years after the series began, A New Frontier follows Clementine, who is now a teenager, and newcomer Javier. Players will take control of Javier as he tries to find the family that was taken from him by the devastating zombie attack. Both Clementine and Javier will be playable characters, but according to Telltale, “you may not be playing each character within the same frame of time.”

    What are you looking forward to playing? Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments.

    Note: This is not a comprehensive list of releases and only games with specific dates are listed below. Some games are announced for December but have no firm release date.

  • New Nintendo Console Revealed called “Switch”

    It's Finally shown!!

    Nintendo has revealed that its NX Console will be a handheld, portable device that doubles up as a home console and be called the “Switch”!

    Previously code-named NX, now named the Nintendo Switch, the device looks like a tablet computer with controllers that attach to its sides.

    Analyst and most gamers feel that the device could be Nintendo’s “last shot” at selling a home console.

    “The Wii U was a car crash, basically,” said Paul Jackson of the Ovum consultancy.

    “They fudged the communication and confused everybody with the controller and what the screen was for.

    “As a result it sold about a tenth of what the original Wii sold.”

    So what he is saying in simple terms is that they f**ked up! They aim for the casual market but used marketing tactics that worked for hardcore gamers and it didn’t work! The reason being is that us hardcore gamers activity look for information about our hobby whereas causal gamer don’t so they need to be feed the information via marketing.

    The Wii U destroyed in sales by Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, but Nintendo has enjoyed success with its handheld 3DS device.

    20-nintendo-switchThe new Switch console can be seated in a dock to play games on a television, or used as a stand-alone portable device.

    There’s no word on whether the Switch will be backward-compatible with the Wii U or other Nintendo systems, but most likely it won’t (the “Switch may not have a disc drive) and you’ll have to buy these games a second time from the Nintendo online store! The trailer included glimpses of games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a Mario Kart title, a Super Mario game and the Wii U title Splatoon. But Nintendo said it will announce the launch lineup and show game demos “prior to the March launch.”

    Nintendo has announced that leading games studios and publishers such as Activision, Bethesda, EA Games, Sega, Ubisoft and Warner Brothers had signed up to produce software.

    However, it yet to reveal the technical specifications of the device, but Nvidia confirmed that Switch uses a system-on-chip from its Nvidia Tegra family of products “based on the same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards”, and a custom API.

    The reason why Nintendo might have not released the information about the specs could be that it’s going to be very underpowered (just like the Wii was) compared to the current console and upcoming PS4 Pro and Xbox Scorpio  But the official information will be released later (hopefully soon) and with the console released date estimated to be around March 2017.

    • Toshiba, Megachips, and Macronix are all involved with the Nintendo NX.
    • Toshiba is the world’s second-largest NAND chip maker after Samsung. They also manufactured the flash memory chips for the Nintendo 3DS.
    • NX hardware is finalized. Don’t expect any drastic changes.
    • NX is now entering a very early stage of production.
    • Zero percent chance of NX being delayed from its March launch.

    Note: I am not saying that NX won’t have a mic or camera. I am saying that the camera and mic aren’t built inside of the NX portable device. I’ve heard that the info in this blog post is close to the final retail product. Take all of the information with a grain of salt because this is just a rumour.
