Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary will support Kinect

first_imgHalo: Combat Evolved Anniversary will be the first Halo game to support Microsoft’s Kinect motion controller. That much was confirmed by Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s general manaer of game studios, during an interview with GameSpot yesterday.Beyond that we know very little of exactly how Kinect input will be added to Microsoft’s number one gaming brand. What we can be sure of is Microsoft won’t mess with the Halo formula, and at the very least any Kinect input will be an option, not something you can’t turn off.AdChoices广告The question remains as to how Kinect can improve upon an FPS? Forza 4 is using it for head tracking so the driver will look in the direction the player does, but is there an equivalent for Halo?The one area we could imagine it being used is for secondary weapons e.g. throwing a grenade, or for using melee weapons. But there’s no way Microsoft could ditch the main controller completely, is there? We suspect any Kinect functionality will be tacked on so you’ll be carrying out actions while holding your controller, so don’t get carried away and throw it at your TV in the heat of battle.Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is currently undergoing an update for its 10th anniversary at 343 Industries and Saber Interactive for re-release on the Xbox 360 on November 15. Expect HD visuals, tweaked controls, 7 multiplayer maps ready for Xbox Live play, achievements, and the now confirmed Kinect input in some form. Microsoft is also teasing some new fiction to uncover on the official website for the game.via GameSpotlast_img read more

Florida woman charged with murder of newborn twins

first_img Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. (WSVN) – A central Florida woman has been charged with the murder of her newborn twins.According to Fox 35, an arrest warrant shows that 30-year-old Rachael Lynn Thomas initially told police that her twins, a boy and a girl, had been birthed stillborn over a toilet at her home.However, an autopsy report later indicated the newborn twins were intentionally killed following their births.“Preliminary autopsy results reveal the manner of death of the twins is homicide. Detectives learned that Baby Jane and Baby John suffered severe blunt force trauma to their heads, not consistent with Thomas’ story of giving birth in a toilet,” West Melbourne Police Capt. Richard Cordeau said in a statement. “In addition, the umbilical cord was wrapped around Baby Jane’s throat and a foreign object was lodged in her throat to block her airway. After discarding her in the trash can, Thomas threw additional trash on top of Baby Jane in an attempt to conceal her. Both babies are believed to have been carried a full 39 week term.”Police said Thomas called them several hours after the twins were born, and the mother only presented one dead infant when first responders arrived at the scene. Crime scene investigators later located the second infant in an outdoor trash can.Thomas is now facing two counts of aggravated child abuse, one count of premeditated murder, and two counts of felony murder.She is currently being held without bond at Brevard County Jail. last_img read more

The Milky Way could collide with another galaxy sooner than we think

first_img 1 The Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, is about 200,000 light-years from Earth. It could eventually collide with our galaxy, astrophysicists say. ESA/NASA/Hubble Day to day here on Earth, our biggest threat from space is probably some undetected asteroid smashing into us, but astrophysicists looking at the universe on a much larger scale warn that another kind of collision could also impact our planet in the distant future. A team led by researchers from the UK’s Durham University says the threat of another galaxy colliding with the Milky Way could happen much sooner than previously thought and might send our entire solar system hurtling off in a new direction.”There is a small chance that we might not escape unscathed from the collision between the two galaxies which could knock us out of the Milky Way and into interstellar space,” Marius Cautun, a postdoctoral fellow at Durham’s Institute for Computational Cosmology, said in a statement.Cautun is lead author of a paper being published Friday in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.Fortunately for us, and probably for everything and everyone we’ll ever know, this collision between the Milky Way and the smaller galaxy known as the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) probably won’t happen for 2 billion years. But that’s still much sooner than the previously predicted impact with our neighboring Andromeda galaxy set to happen in 8 billion years.  29 Photos Share your voice A 23rd-century tourist guide to the galaxy 17 Photos NASA turns 60: The space agency has taken humanity farther than anyone else, and it has plans to go further.Crowd Control: A crowdsourced science fiction novel written by CNET readers.

Fortunately, that garish galactic gala will be far enough away that it’s unlikely to affect life on Earth. Of course, as Frenk points out, we might not be around to see it if the initial collision flings us beyond the bounds of the Milky Way.  Hubble wows with stunning space images Comment Tags “While 2 billion years is an extremely long time compared to a human lifetime, it is a very short time on cosmic timescales,” Cautun said. The LMC is one of a group of smaller satellite galaxies that actually orbit the Milky Way. New calculations suggest it has twice as much dark matter as previously thought and that all that previously undetected mass could mean it’s slowing down and will be unable to escape the gravitational pull of the Milky Way.The scientists say the collision could also wake up the Milky Way’s dormant black hole, which would immediately begin to feed on nearby gas and grow in size by an order of magnitude.  Sci-Tech Spacelast_img read more

Rick Caulfield to take the reins of UAS on June 1

first_imgOn the first of June, the University of Alaska Southeast will have a new chancellor. Rick Caulfield will replace outgoing chancellor John Pugh, who announced his retirement last October.Rick Caulfield (Photo courtesy Rick Caulfield)Rick Caulfield has been UAS’s provost, or chief academic officer, for the past five years. Prior to that, he was a professor at University of Alaska Fairbanks for about 20 years. He started out in the UA System as an instructor at UAF’s Bristol Bay campus in 1985.As chancellor, Caulfield says his biggest challenge will be dealing with budget cuts.“At this point, we’re still uncertain about the exact dollar amount that will impact UAS. We think it’ll be something like $2.3 million,” Caulfield says.The school’s total budget is $59 million.Across the three UAS campuses in Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka, there are about 110 full-time faculty and 220 staff members. Caulfield says, due to the unfinished state budget, he doesn’t know how many positions the college will cut.“But I would say, at the same time, we’re looking at ways to generate new revenue, whether it’s federal funding, grant opportunities or ways of attracting more students to our programs,” Caulfield says.He hopes to build up UAS online degree programs. He wants to attract Alaskans who never completed college but want to. UAS has about 3,000 students, most are part-time.Caulfield says he also hopes to expand the college’s programs in Northwest Coast art. UAS worked with Sealaska Heritage Institute to submit a federal grant proposal for $2.3 million.Caulfield says he intends to maintain John Pugh’s legacy of focusing efforts on students who aren’t traditional students — people who work and have families while taking classes.“He deeply cares about student success. He deeply cares about engaging with students and encouraging them in their education and my hope is to continue that practice of showing how at UAS we really care about the success of our students,” Caulfield says.Caulfield is originally from California but just celebrated his 40th year in the state. He came to Alaska in 1975 and later married his wife Annie in Gustavus. He earned his doctorate in the United Kingdom in 1994 based on research on aboriginal subsistence whaling in Greenland and the Arctic.last_img read more
