Sea of Thieves Kraken unveiled in new launch trailer release

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 days, 4 hours ago

On the official Sea of Thieves YouTube channel a new launch trailer has surfaced ahead of the games launch next week on the March 20. The new launch trailer has revealed a short glimpse at the mighty Kraken.



From the above video can see that players will have a plethora of costume options, this same principle can be applied to the ships as well.


Below I have provided you with screenshots of the Kraken. It seems that the beast is certainly quite large when in comparison to the ships players will be operating, interestingly enough this raises the question how will players defend their ships. This is the first time we have seen the Kraken in action, hopefully there is a creative/amusing way to deal with the beast, maybe a option like 'pour kerosene' / 'Ignite' for tentacles that are wrapped around players ships?

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 days, 5 hours ago

Nintendo Germany has made a recent announcement today, they have said that the Nintendo Switch has hit a massive 650,000 units sold, breaking a new record.




Previously, the Nintendo Wii held the ten-year record sales but now the Nintendo Switch has broken through that record with over 650,000 units sold in just the first year of the handheld console.


The sales of the Nintendo Switch is honestly shocking, the more games that debut to Nintendo's console the more of a steady incline the console sales could have. We now know that Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Nintendo Switch, so we could possibly see a slight increase in sales whenever Nintendo decide to release the brawler.

Little Caesars new patent teases pizza-making robots

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Science, Space & Robotics | Posted: 3 days, 12 hours ago

I can see a pizza-making robot in our very near future, but now Little Caesars has received a new patent for an "automated pizza assembly system". Yeah, a pizza-making robot.




Little Caesars' robot would, according to the patent, be a "robot including a stationary base and an articulating arm having a gripper attached to the end is operable to grip a pizza pan having pizza dough therein". After the robot rotates the pizza pan through "the cheese spreading station" and then the "pepperoni applying station". Automated pizza making, awesome.


You shouldn't expect to walk into Little Caesars anytime soon and watch a robot make your pizza, but for the future (think 10-15 years) we could expect more robotic and autonomous machines making not just our pizzas, but food in general. Robotic kitchen assistants will be a thing in the future.

The teaser trailer shows Geralt slicing through foes like butter and brings to mind the whirling chaos found in the first game. CD Projekt RED has confirmed that Doug Cockle, who voices Geralt, will return for Soul Calibur VI with original lines.
