Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Gameplay Trailer Confirms Release Date: Bethesda at E3 2017

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is the next entry in the Wolfenstein franchise, Bethesda revealed the game with a bombastic trailer that showed off generous amounts of gameplay including dual weapon wielding and a Nazi-occupied America as previous leaks have suggested.

Speaking of leaks, the release date for Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus was also as previously made public. You can play it on October 27 this year on the PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Windows PC.

“An exhilarating adventure brought to life by the industry-leading id Tech 6, Wolfenstein II sends players to Nazi-controlled America on a mission to recruit the boldest resistance leaders left. Fight the Nazis in iconic locations such as small-town Roswell, New Mexico, the flooded streets of New Orleans, and a post-nuclear Manhattan. Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and uber soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter,” reads the trailer’s description.
In the run up to Bethesda’s E3 2017 event, Amazon Germany had put up a listing for the game which was then removed. Spotted by members of popular gaming forum NeoGAF, it suggests that Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus has a release date of October 27 this year.

Cleverly disguised at Bethesda’s E3 2016 conference, Wolfenstein 2 : New Colossus takes place in Nazi-occupied America. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is developed by Machine Games – the studio behind the excellent Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.

 

Nintendo at E3 2017: Super Mario Odyssey, Rocket League, and The Legend of Zelda DLC

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Super Mario Odyssey releases October 27
  • Rocket League will have local multiplayer on Nintendo Switch
  • The Legend of Zelda’s first DLC, Master Trials, coming June 30

Nintendo’s E3 2017 event was the shortest of the lot, in part because it was a pre-recorded stream. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t enough to be excited about, including a popular third-party title, updates for Nintendo games on the way, and announcements for new games in development. If you don’t have time to watch the half-hour video, here’s a round-up of the biggest news.

Super Mario Odyssey is coming October 27
Though its existence has been known since the start of the year, a new trailer for the exploration-based Super Mario Odyssey shed light on what players can expect from the game: set outside the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario travels to a whole bunch of locations, including lush green tropical forests, deserts with palm trees, mountains, and of course its New York-inspired New Donk City.

While Mario will sport his immediately recognisable red-and-blue jumper for the most part, he’ll don new costumes – such as an all-white three-piece suit among others – during his time in Odyssey. One of the big surprises was the presence of a dinosaur, so there’s no limit to what you can expect from the game.

Super Mario Odyssey will release October 27 for the Nintendo Switch.

Rocket League will have Mario hats and local multiplayer
Since its launch, sport-driving hybrid Rocket League has exploded with the gaming community, being one of the most popular multiplayer titles across Steam and PlayStation at any given time. Now, it’s coming to the Nintendo Switch, where the game will release with exclusive Nintendo-themed items, such as Mario and Luigi hats.

It’ll also support cross-platform play, with players on PC and Xbox One. Much more importantly, Rocket League will have local multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch, which will be unique to that console. It’s great to see Nintendo pushing developers to create LAN multiplayer in their titles, something that has mostly vanished in lieu of online multiplayer.

Rocket League will release during the holiday period for the Switch, so expect it November-December.Nintendo at E3 2017: Super Mario Odyssey, Rocket League, and The Legend of Zelda DLC

Link’s adventures continue with first DLC for The Legend of Zelda
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a launch title for the Switch, and the initial lack of games for the new Nintendo console meant most owners have more or less finished the game. If you’re one of those, you’ll be happy to know that Nintendo has its first DLC on the way. It’s called The Master Trials, and it will send Link on lots of new adventures.

Aside from new quests, The Master Trials will include The Trial of the Sword, Hero’s Path Mode, and Master Mode, as well as new armour and items. There are four new amiibos on the way too, featuring different in-game champions.

You can get the first DLC for The Legend of Zelda by getting the expansion pass for the game, which costs $19.99 (about Rs. 1,300). Master Trails will be available June 30 on Nintendo Switch.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will release later this year
An open-world Japanese role-playing game sequel first announced earlier this year, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 kicked off the Nintendo E3 2017 event with a new trailer. The two protagonists are teenagers – a boy and a girl – who will encounter different enemies during their long journey. As expected, the trailer had multiple references to a “blade” – it’s called Xenoblade – but didn’t provide an exact release date.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is sticking to the holiday 2017 release date for the Switch.
Fire Emblem Warriors is out in autumn 2017
Nintendo provided another look at its hack-and-slash addition to the Fire Emblem canon, which will put you in control of multiple characters, including original duo Lian and Zion. Characters will show up from other Fire Emblem games too – Awakening’s Chrom, Shadow Dragon’s prince of Altea Marth, and three from Fates: Ryoma, Xander, and Corrin.

Fire Emblem Warriors will release sometime in the autumn, for the Switch and the New 3DS.
A new Pokemon game, and Metroid Prime 4 are in development
Extremely short on details, but important to players and shareholders, Nintendo announced that a new “Pokemon RPG”, and Metroid Prime 4 are now in development. The first is being made by developer Game Freak, which have crafted every Pokemon game since Pokemon Red and Blue in 1996. Pokemon Company’s Tsunekazu Ishihara said it’s in the early stages, and not to expect release for another year.

The sci-fi exploration-based Metroid Prime 4 got an announcement trailer, on the other hand, which disappointedly featured only the game’s logo. That means the game is early in development, so don’t hold out a release before the end of 2018.
Two working titles called Kirby, and Yoshi
Nintendo showed off a new side-scrolling game called Kirby at its E3 2017 presser, which finds the little pink ball going on adventures with melee weapons, changing its shape, and even being joined by his friends, with up to three other characters. Knowing the Switch, it’s very likely the game will have on-device and/or local multiplayer.
The other working is called Yoshi, which seems to be inspired by Yoshi’s Woolly World. Carrying eggs and collecting coins, it seems to perfectly fit Nintendo’s family-friendly aesthetic and style. The Yoshi game too seems to allow for local multiplayer, with the trailer showing two different-coloured Yoshi characters helping each other complete the courses.

There are no release dates for both titles, except to say they will release sometime in 2018.

Nokia 3 online sale debuts in India; listed on Croma at Rs. 9,499

A few days back, HMD launched the Nokia Android smartphones in India. At the time of the launch, it was announced that the Nokia 3 will go on sale starting from June 16 and that it will be exclusive only to the offline stores.

As mentioned by HMD, the Nokia 3 priced at Rs. 9,499 went on sale via the offline stores on June 16. The company did not reveal anything about the possibility of this smartphone to be made available online. Now, the Nokia 3 has been listed on the online retailer website Croma for the same price of Rs. 9,499. Though this move was not announced by the company, many Nokia fans will welcome it.

From the listing on Croma, it looks like the entry-level Nokia 3 smartphone will be available with the cash on delivery payment mode. Also, there is EMI option for those who would like to purchase it with convenient payment options.

We can expect the Nokia 3 to be listed by a few other retailers too in the coming days. Being an entry-level smartphone, the Nokia 3 has a polycarbonate body. It is fitted with a 5-inch HD 720p IPS LCD display.

The hardware aspects of the Nokia 3 include a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 SoC that is coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. Notably, the storage capacity can be expanded up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card.

The camera department of the device comprises of an 8MP camera at the back and another 8MP camera sensor at the front. The other goodies on board the Nokia 3 are Android Nougat, OTG support, 4G LTE and a 2650mAh battery.

 

For those who made it in previous years, a shot at a new life

 

“Kismat achhi thi, isiliye itna achha college mil gaya, nahin toh mein kaha padh paati.” Ashu, a third-year BA programme student at JMC College, is fully aware of the arduous journey she’s had to undertake. “But apart from luck, had I not played handball or other sports at school, I would have never known about JMC,” said Ashu, who got 80 per cent in her Class XII board examination, and got into the college through sports quota for softball. “At the Vikaspuri centre where I used to play, my seniors were already in college. They filled my admission form for me. I just went for the trials,” she said.

Ashu, who comes from Najafgarh, has three siblings — a sister who is disabled, a brother who dropped out of school after Class IX and now works in a factory, and another sister who is currently in school.

Ashu’s father died of a heart attack when she was 15. Her mother works as a guard at a girls’ hostel in Palam. “I performed very well during trials and the tournaments, so I study free of cost. My mother is a Class XII pass, so she helps me study. In the college, as lectures were delivered in English, I used to face problems, but my friends and teachers supported me,” she said.

While Ashu wants to pursue a career in sports, her mother wants her to do a BEd and become a teacher.du admission 2017, sports quota, du sports students, jmc college, st stephens college, du,ac,in, delhi uni, indian express

For the time being, she has another aim: “This much I know, I will be able to guide my sister well and make sure she gets to pursue what she is interested in.”

For Ruchi Singh, who graduated from St Stephen’s College this year, the path to sports was very different. Singh, who comes from a Rajput family in Amethi, Uttar Pradesh, never thought her father’s wish — that she learn shooting for self defence — would become a ticket to DU.

“In 2005, there was a shooting camp in my village. My father took me there after school. The coach there gave me five shots to hit. It was my first time holding a pistol, though I had seen many at home, locked in cupboards. I hit the five targets; I don’t know how. The coach told me I should practise more. Only after I came home did my dad tell me I had done well,” said Singh.

Samsung ISOCELL Image Sensor Brand Launched, Dual Camera Setup Demoed at MWC Shanghai

 

HIGHLIGHTS
The image sensor brand is named after Samsung’s ISOCELL technology
The ISOCELL technology was first introduced in 2013
We may see the ISOCELL dual camera first on the Galaxy Note 8
Samsung is at MWC Shanghai, and has used the platform to introduce its new image sensor brand ISOCELL. The image sensor brand is named after Samsung’s own ISOCELL technology, and is aimed at providing high camera output in thin smartphone designs. The company even demoed its dual camera setup technology that uses its ISOCELL technology as well – presaging the launch of its first dual camera smartphone, thought to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The introduction of the image sensor brand indicates Samsung’s foray into yet another product category. The company currently makes its own Exynos processors, memory chips, UFS storage, and even SD cards, and an image sensor has now joined the bandwagon. The ISOCELL technology was first introduced in 2013, and it separates each pixel with a physical barrier that reduces colour crosstalk among pixels. This allows high colour fidelity, enabling high image quality even with smaller pixels.Samsung ISOCELL Image Sensor Brand Launched, Dual Camera Setup Demoed at MWC Shanghai

Samsung notes that the ISOCELL technology can be implemented in any of four different variations: Bright, Slim, Fast, and Dual. Bright sensors claim to deliver bright and sharp images with high colour fidelity and reduced noise in low-light environments. ISOCELL fast sensors are pegged to provide fast autofocus onto still or moving objects even when dark. Slim sensors adopt the smallest pixel sizes available in the market at 0.9-1.0um, yet produce high quality images for even slim devices, and lastly, dual sensors can be mixed and matched to meet consumer demand.
“Samsung ISOCELL is a brand that represents the essence of our leading pixel technologies. We expect the ISOCELL brand to help consumers easily acknowledge and confide in camera performance as well as overall quality of the device. With our advanced image sensor technologies, Samsung will continue to bring innovation to cameras used in smartphones and other applications,” said Ben Hur, Vice President of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics.

Furthermore, the little demo of Samsung’s dual camera setup using ISOCELL (as reported by Pocket-lint) also hints at Samsung’s plans of introducing it in a future flagship device. Perhaps the Galaxy Note 8? The smartphone has also been tipped to sport a dual camera setup in many leaks, a first in any Samsung smartphone lineup – if true.
