Share your voice That’ll bring the total number of NES games on the service to 31 — the library is updated each month — and there are also fancy SP versions of games that add surprising twists to existing entries. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is a curious mix of the series’ classic overhead view and side-scrolling platforming action — it’s also rock hard. 29 Photos Comment Blaster Master uses these two perspectives as well, with the platforming primarily taking place in a tank and switching to overhead for exploration. However, prepare to be jealous — Japanese subscribers are getting a third game. Joy Mech Fight is a 1993 fighting game never released outside Japan.

The Hyundai Veloster N is an absolute blast to drive, but the version modified for series racing looks like it’ll be even wilder.Hyundai introduced its new Veloster N TCR race car at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. It’s meant to compete in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, which was renamed from the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge after the title sponsors swapped at the end of 2018. The Veloster N will race in the touring car (TCR) class, one of two classes in the series.Under the hood is a Hyundai Motorsport 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 gas engine. It’s good for 350 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, which is 75 hp and 72 lb-ft more powerful than the road-legal Veloster N. Power heads to the front wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission and a mechanical differential. Enlarge ImageIt’ll look a little different when raced, since it’ll be littered with sponsor stickers and other liveries. Steven Pham/Roadshow The Veloster N TCN shares approximately 85 percent of its main components with the i30 N TCR touring car in Europe, including the engine. Both are manufactured in Germany, at Hyundai Motorsport’s headquarters. Hyundai wanted to make sure its race cars closely matched what was on offer at the dealer, and the Veloster N TCR fills in the market gaps where the i30 isn’t offered for sale, including the US.The exterior is properly bonkers, with some massive fender flares over each wheel, aggressive aerodynamics on the bumpers and a honkin’ wing out back, connected at the center of the liftgate. Inside, it’s decked out with competition seats, six-point harnesses with HANS compatibility and a configurable driver’s display. As expected, there’s a steel roll cage in there, too, since it wouldn’t be legal to race without one.The Hyundai Veloster N TCR will make its racing debut in a four-hour race at Daytona International Speedway on Jan. 25. Groups who want to race these cars will have to plunk down 135,000 euro (about $155,000) for the honor. Teams running this car in the US will receive assistance and support (and, perhaps most importantly, tires) from Bryan Herta Autosport.

Mohanlal’s new still from LuciferTwitterA notorious gang has allegedly leaked the full Malayalam and Telugu versions of superstar Mohanlal’s Lucifer on the torrents for free download two weeks after its Mollywood version hit the screens.Prithviraj Sukumaran has made his debut with Lucifer, which features popular actor Mohanlal in the lead roles. The association of these two superstars in two different roles generated a lot of curiosity about the film. Amid huge hype, the Malayalam version, which was released in the cinema halls on March 28, got a massive opening and went on to make a fantastic collection at the box office on the following days.The Malayalam version of Lucifer collected Rs 105 crore gross at the worldwide box office in two weeks. Considering its current pace, trade analysts predict that movie will collect another Rs 50 crore gross in the coming days. The film has already become a blockbuster success of the year at the ticket counters. YouTube ScreenshotSuperstar Mohanlal enjoys a good fan following in the Telugu states and his fans’ count grew multifold after the release of Janatha Garage starring him with Jr NTR. His next Telugu release Manamantha fared very well at the box office. Now, the makers of Lucifer have dubbed and released it in Telugu in a bid to cash in on his popularity in the state and this film has also got a good opening at the ticket counters.But a notorious gang has leaked the full movie of both Malayalam and Telugu versions of Lucifer even before the second version completed its opening day at the cinema halls. This gang’s website offers six prints of each of these versions ranging from 2.3 GB to 200 MB for free download. These prints are apparently HQ PreDVD – HQ Line Audio version and they may not have good audio and video qualities. YouTube ScreenshotThe distributors in the Telugu states are said to have shelled out over Rs 5 crore on the theatrical rights of Lucifer, which is clashing with the original Telugu film Chitralahari starring Sai Dharam Tej. Some filmgoers, who do not have enough time to visit theatres, may resort to downloading its pirated copy. This alleged act will take a toll on the collection of its Telugu version and incur losses to its distributors.We at International Business Times, India, are strictly against piracy of any film and we condemn people who support it. We always stand by the film industry which has suffered huge losses due to piracy. We also request you to join us in the fight against piracy.Say no to piracy and encourage filmmakers by watching films in cinema halls.
Amir Khosru Mahmud ChowdhuryBNP senior leader Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury on Thursday said the proposed national budget for fiscal year 2019-20 will facilitate only a section of people instead of fulfilling the hopes and aspirations of the country’s people.In an instant reaction to the new budget, he also said as the government has kept at Tk 1,453.80 billion (Tk 145,380 crore) deficit in the proposed budget, it will have a negative impact on people’s life as the money will ultimately be realised from them.Khosru said the current ‘unelected’ government and parliament have no moral right to present any budget for the nation. “The budget they (govt) presented was formulated only to give a section of people all the facilities. The budget management is now confined to a quarter.”The BNP leader said people’s hopes and aspirations were not reflected in the last general election. “The desires of the people of Bangladesh will also not be fulfilled through the new budget.”Khosru, also a former commerce minister, feared that the government will fill up the huge amount of budget deficit by collecting money from people through raising the tariffs of the utility services.He said the country’s macro economy which was on good track over the last 20 years is now getting affected for lack of good governance, investment and some other reasons. “Our economy is deviating from its correct course.”The BNP also alleged that Bangladesh’s economy has now turned into ‘loan-dependent’ one. “It’s very dangerous that we’re going to be caught in a debt trap. We’ll face serious hurdle to repay the loan in the days to come.”Earlier in the day, finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal placed a Tk 5,231.90 billion (Tk 523,190 crore) national budget for the 2019-20 fiscal year with the target of 8.2 per cent GDP growth.Khosru said the 8.2 per cent GDP growth is unrealistic as different organisations are raising questions about the country’s GDP growth. “A government which lacks accountability can only set such a GDP growth target.”He also asked the reasons behind the bad condition of the capital markets, rise in unemployment rate and lack of investment if the country’s GDP growth is really high. “How can GDP growth accelerate without investment amid liquidity crisis faced by the banks?”Khosru gave the reaction to the budget at his Banani office.However, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam is scheduled to come with their party’s formal reaction to the budget at a press conference at its chairperson’s Gulshan office at 4pm on Friday.
Sandwiched between heaven and earth, crowned with sanctity, greened by acres of sacred groves, there is a place whose beauty is parallel to none. Sammed Shikharji transcends the superlatives of scenic beauty with its stunning scenery. What could be a better treat for the senses of devotees who take up this venerable pilgrimage in the Jain faith? This ancient tirth is considered the holiest since 20 out of the 24 Tirthankars attained Nirvana here. To revive the memory of this holy place of Jainism and to tell the story of Jain Saints in the form of pictures, Varun Joshi has come up with a coffee table book on the famous pilgrimage site of the Jains. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Sammed Shikharji, meaning vulnerable peak, is nestled on the Parasnath Hill in Girdih district of Jharkhand and it is believed that a visit to this sacred place destroys bad karma and eliminates troubles. The picturesque land is dotted with several temples, each important in its own right. The land of penance and nirvana, Shikharji is surrounded by the Madhuban forest and cradled by yawing valleys. This is where the 27km ascent starts for the pilgrimage. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe experience of the pilgrimage and the unmatched beauty that surrounds the holy place has been captured in its most pristine and exquisite form by photographer Varun Joshi in his book Shikharji. To have undertaken the arduous pilgrimage and come back with stunning shots is no mean feat! Each image in his book brings to life the elements at their glorious best – like the silence of the forests, the chill at the peaks, the smell of wood, the sacred air and much more. The pictures are rife with stories of grandeur, fortitude and the sacred. His book is the only book that has ever featured Shikharji so perfectly. The coffee table book which covers the age old temples, other monumental wonders, the greater thinkers and above all the unique tenants of the faith has been sponsored by the Jain body- Paras Foundation.Varun Joshi has several coffee table books to his credit, but he considers this book as the most enriching experience. The pictures are a mere reflection of what I saw there, but what I experienced cannot be interpreted in any image’, says the photographer who is scaling new heights with every passing book. The book is so popular among Jains that it’s 1,000 copies have been sold already and 5,000 more copies are under print. His previous coffee table books include Jainism (Digambar), Jainism (Swetambar), Hyderabad, Pushkar, Digah, Dilwara (Mount Abu) and Brij. A coffee table book on Telangana is also under publication.
Compassion shapes our behaviour towards a person wronged and a wrongdoer and may lead us to help the wronged than to punish the wrongdoer, researchers have found.According to researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US, a new set of studies suggests that compassion — and intentionally cultivating it through training —impacts the extent to which people punish the transgressor.“Any action — helping or punishing — can arise from compassion, which involves at least two components: a ‘feeling’ component of empathic concern and caring for the suffering of another; and a cognitive, motivational component of wanting to alleviate that suffering,” said lead researcher Helen Weng. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Published in the journal PLoS ONE, the findings said understanding what motivates people to be altruistic can not only inform our own behaviours, it may also play a role in creating more just societal institutions, including the legal and penal systems.These findings are built upon previous work by Weng and others, which demonstrates that as little as two weeks of compassion training can result in measurable changes in the brain.These previous studies measured altruistic behaviour in research subjects but did not separate helping and punishing behaviour to learn which is most related to compassion. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixTo answer this question, the investigators tested whether compassion was related to helping or punishment in two studies where participants played the “Helping Game” or “Punishment Game”, using real money they could keep at the end of the game.In both games, participants watched through online interactions as one player with more funds chose to split an unfair amount of money with another player with no funds.In the Helping Game, the third-party observers could choose to do nothing or give some of their own funds to “help” the victim.In the Punishment Game, the third-party observers could choose to do nothing or “punish” the transgressor by spending their own funds to take money away from the wrongdoer.“People with higher empathic concern were more likely to help the victim than punish the transgressor. “But, interestingly, within the group of people who decided to punish the transgressor, those with more empathic concern decided to punish less,” Weng noted after the studies.

Enroll Now for Free Selfies are all the rage these days, but they’re also proving to be a safety hazard. In light of several life-threatening selfie-related incidents in Russia – at least 10 deaths and 100 injuries over the last year, according to the Associated Press — the Russian Interior Ministry and the country’s police force has created a campaign called “Safe Selfies.”Related: The Places Where Selfie Sticks Are BannedRussia’s police guide on how not to get killed by a selfieImage credit: Ministry of Internal Affairs RF [RU]The campaign includes pamphlets, safety videos, tips and images in the form of “no smoking”-style mock signage, instructing the people to avoid dangerous locations and situations while taking selfies – no train tracks, wild animals, firearms, at extreme heights (like roofs or electricity cables), in moving vehicles (by land and by sea) or venturing into highly trafficked streets, to name a few. (A full translation is below.)This is perhaps the first time that the selfie itself has been deemed a safety risk. Selfie sticks, on the other hand, have been banned from a number of museums, attractions and events all over the world — everywhere from the Palace of Versailles in Paris to the San Diego Convention Center on the eve of Comic-Con. The full translation of Russia’s signage above is as follows, from left to right:1. Selfie on railroad tracks is a bad idea if you cherish your life! A teenager wanted to take a picture of himself on tracks, but got electrocuted, fell off the bridge and died in a hospital.2. Selfie with a weapon kills!A 21-year-old female accidentally shot herself in a head with a traumatic gun while trying to snap a spectacular selfie. 3. Selfie under voltage? It isn’t worth it!A ninth grader died taking a selfie. He grabbed exposed voltage wires.4. Selfie on the water, it’s hard to keep the balance!5. Selfie on the roof, it’s far to fall.6. Selfie with animals, not always cute!7. Selfie on top of train cars electrocutes! 8. Selfie, choose your way! Perform a safe ascent!

If you’re following the news, chances are you’ve heard about Virtual Reality or VR headsets like Oculus, Samsung Gear, HTC Vive etc. Trending terms and buzzwords are all good for a business or tech that’s novel and yet to be adopted by the majority of consumers. But the proof of the pudding is when people have started using the tech. And the first reactions to mobile VR are not at all good. This has even made the founder of Oculus Rift, John Carmack to give a statement, “We are coasting on novelty, and the initial wonder of being something people have never seen before”. The jury is out on present day Mobile VR technologies and headsets – ‘It Sucks’ in its present form. If you want to know why and what can make it better then read ahead. Hardware are expensive Mobile headsets are costly, mostly in the $399- $799 range. The most successful VR headset till date is Google Cardboard. The reason – it’s dirt cheap and it doesn’t need too much set up and customization. Such a high price at the initial launching phase of any tech is going to make the users worried. Not many people would want to buy an expensive new toy without knowing exactly how it’s going to be. VR games don’t match up to video game quality The initial VR games for mobile were very poor. There are 13 billion mobile gamers across the world, undeniably a huge market to tap into. But we have to keep in mind that these gamers have already access to high quality games which they can play just by tapping their mobile screen. For them to strap on that headset and get immersed in VR games, the incentive needs to be too alluring to resist. The current crop of VR games lack complexity, their UI design is not intuitive enough to hold the attention of a user for longer duration of time, especially when playing a VR game means strapping up that head gear. These VR games also take too much time to load which is a huge negative for VR games. The hype vs reality gap is improving, but it’s painfully slow The current phase of VR is the initial breakthrough stage where there are lot of expectations from it. But the games and apps are not upto the mark and hence those who have used it are giving it a thumbs down. The word of mouth publicity is mostly negative and this is creating a negative impact on mobile VR as a whole. The chart below shows the gap between initial expectation and the reality of VR and how it might shape up in the near future according to Unity’s CEO John Riccitiello. AR vs VR vs MR: A concoction for confusion The popularity of Augmented Reality ( AR) and the emergence of Mixed Reality – an amalgamation of both AR and VR have distracted the developers as per which platform and what methodology to adapt. The UX and UI design are quite different for both AR and VR and MR and hence all of these three disciplines would need dedicated development resources. For this to happen, these disciplines would have to be formalized first and until that time, the quality of the apps will not improve drastically. No unified VR development platform Mobile VR is dependant on SDKs and primarily on the two game engines Unity and Unreal Engine that have come up with support for VR game development. While Unity is one of the biggest names in game development industry, a dedicated and unified VR development platform is still missing in action. As for Unity and Unreal Engine their priority will not be VR any time soon. Things can change if and when some tech giant like Google, Microsoft, Facebook etc. will dedicate their resources to create VR apps and Games for mobile. Although Google has cardboard, Facebook unveiled React VR and support for AR development, Microsoft has their own game going on with Hololens AR and MR development, the trend that started it all still seems to be lost among its newer cousins. I think, VR will be big, but it will have to wait till its implementation by some major business or company. Till then, we will have to wear our ghastly headsets and imagine that we are living in the future.
