The World Cup is right around the corner and we’ve selected several long shots to watch.

The pre-tournament story: The Swiss team is deep and we believe there is a chance for them to qualify for the semi-finals of the World Cup. The Netherlands, meanwhile, are set to dominate the group stage and Paulo Dybala could fly under Argentina’s radar.

Check out our top World Cup long bets for the upcoming tournament in Qatar.

Odds at 4:02 p.m. on 10/15/2022.

Best World Cup long bet

Best bet: Switzerland reach the semi-finals (+1,100):

It’s a real long-term bet. Switzerland have never reached the semi-finals in their history in the World Cup, but we think that could change this year.

The Swiss are in a group with Brazil, Serbia and Cameroon.

Brazil have won their group in every tournament since 1978 and that shouldn’t change now. We expect Switzerland to finish second behind the Brazilians and qualify for the knockout stage for the fourth time in their last five tournaments.

Assuming Switzerland come second, they would face the winner of Group H which would be Portugal or Uruguay. Either would be a winnable game.

Then the Swiss would likely face Germany, Spain, Belgium or Croatia in the quarter-finals.

The Swiss picked up wins over Portugal and Spain in the 2022 Nations League group stage but were 3-0-3 overall. The ability to beat the top teams is definitely there, but the consistency isn’t quite what we want it to be.

That said, Switzerland has a perfect mix of veteran leadership and young talent.

Xherdan Shaqiri, Ricardo Rodriguez and Granit Xhaka all have over 100 international caps. Younger players like Breel Embolo and Ruben Vargas are up for the challenge.

Key stat: Switzerland have beaten Portugal, Spain and France in the past two years.

Other distant bets on the World Cup

The Netherlands have scored the most goals in the group stage (+800): Only four teams have odds shorter than the Netherlands to lead the group stage of the tournament in terms of goals, making it a long shot in odds alone.

The Dutch are an elite attacking team and should have no trouble finding the net against inferior competition.

The Netherlands have come through the group stage of the 2022 Nations League, scoring 14 goals in six games. His biggest triumph was a 4-1 win over No. 2-ranked Belgium.

Holland have to face Qatar, Senegal and Ecuador in Group A. We like their chances of putting on a show.

Dybala leads Argentina in goals (+1,400): This will be Lionel Messi’s last World Cup and he is unsurprisingly the betting favorite to lead Argentina in goals (-134). That said, we think Dybala is much more valuable at 14-1.

The 29-year-old striker has thrived wherever he has played. Dybala scored 15 goals in 39 games for Juventus last season and has already found the net seven times in 12 games for Roma this year.

His national team record is less stellar, but it has been largely ruled out due to injury.

Dybala was recently injured while playing in Serie A but appears to be back in good form. He returned for Roma on November 13 and registered three shots in 35 minutes.

Knicks to look into potential trade target Shai Gilgeous-Alexander https://tunalifotograf.com/knicks-to-look-into-potential-trade-target-shai-gilgeous-alexander/ Sat, 12 Nov 2022 23:06:00 +0000 https://tunalifotograf.com/knicks-to-look-into-potential-trade-target-shai-gilgeous-alexander/ The Knicks’ draft vault is full of first-round picks, but their roster doesn’t make a difference, which was clearly evident thanks to a 6-6 average start.

The Knicks’ draft vault is full of first-round picks, but their roster doesn’t make a difference, which was clearly evident thanks to a 6-6 average start.

They didn’t empty Donovan Mitchell’s coffers. Would they push their chips for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, an emerging star with many Knicks ties?

Sunday might help answer that question.

The Knicks will host the unimpressive Thunder and get a good look at Oklahoma City’s impressive young wing, who could be the next traded star, if he continues to rise and his team embraces tanking.

Gilgeous-Alexander is an active, athletic 6-foot-6 out-guard who can create his own shot and get to any spot on the floor. He’s surged this season, averaging 30.5 points, which was seventh-best in the NBA on Saturday, with 53.9% shooting. He scored most of his points by cutting down the hallway. No one makes more drives per game than Gilgeous-Alexander, who averages 24.2, about 1.5 more than Grizzlies All-Star Ja Morant.

The 24-year-old is shooting just 33% from 3-point range but attempted his fewest 3s since his 2018-19 rookie season. Gilgeous-Alexander is bursting — and making the case for his first NBA All-Star selection — by breaking down defenses.

Add to that his 5.5 assists, 1.5 blocks and two steals per game (which was sixth-highest in the NBA), and his long span-obstructing paths – and the Thunder have either been an intriguing player to build, an attractive asset to cash in on.

Oklahoma City is 5-7 and is currently out of the Western Conference playoff draw, but its few wins have come on the back of Gilgeous-Alexander. The Thunder have already lost Chet Holmgren, the second overall pick in 2022, and trading Gilgeous-Alexander would widen their path to landing generational prospect Victor Wembanyama in the 2023 draft.

There might be a reason for general manager Sam Presti – who has shown he’s not afraid to deal with stars, from James Harden and Russell Westbrook to Chris Paul and Paul George (who went to the Clippers in exchange for Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and chooses ) — to pull the trigger.

And there could be a reason for Gilgeous-Alexander to ask for a trade. The Thunder haven’t made the playoffs since 2020, their first season in Oklahoma City, when they were eliminated in the first round of the bubble playoffs by the Rockets. The Thunder have since gone 51-115 and are likely heading for a lottery pick.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander dives in the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors, Friday, Nov. 11, 2022, in Oklahoma City.

“I know what I signed when I signed a five-year extension,” Gilgeous-Alexander, in his first season of a maximum $172 million rookie contract extension, told reporters in september. “And I don’t think we’re going to lose much longer. … I believe in this team.

Of course, plenty of stars have adopted similar tones in public before asking to be shipped off to a suitor.

The Knicks, as they are currently constructed, are not a contender, but they should know Gilgeous-Alexander better than anyone.

Surely they saw plenty of Gilgeous-Alexander in Kentucky as they searched for the 2018 NBA draft, when they instead picked teammate Kevin Knox at No. 9 — two picks before Gilgeous-Alexander was selected by the Hornets, who immediately dealt him to the Clippers. .

The Post reported that prior to this draft, Gilgeous-Alexander’s Los Angeles-based agents refused to allow him to train for teams other than the Clippers. If the Gilgeous-Alexander rep team still yearns for a big market, Oklahoma City isn’t a good fit.

Meanwhile, apparently every Kentucky player suits the Knicks from team president Leon Rose and senior executive William “World Wide Wes” Wesley. They both have strong ties to the program, which helped recruit former Wildcats Immanuel Quickley and Julius Randle.

And just in case the Knicks need one more Gilgeous-Alexander connection, he and fellow Canadian RJ Barrett have committed to playing for Team Canada through the 2024 Summer Olympics. the national team is Rowan Barrett, RJ’s father.

If the Thunder prioritize their draft position over a long playoff run, the Knicks could be top of the line for Gilgeous-Alexander. They have nine first-round picks over the next five drafts, a stash that remained intact after Mitchell was dealt to the Cavaliers.

Is Gilgeous-Alexander the star the Knicks have been looking for so long?

Maybe Sunday’s game at Madison Square Garden can shed some light.

BUFFALO, NY — Karel Vejmelka made 32 saves to lead the Arizona Coyotes to a 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabers on Tuesday night.

Lawson Crouse, Matias Maccelli, Clayton Keller and Liam O’Brien scored for Arizona.

Tage Thompson scored for Buffalo. Eric Comrie made 20 saves.

Crouse opened the scoring after just 23 seconds following an error by Buffalo defenders Kale Clague and Owen Power. Maccelli quickly found Crouse for an easy close-range goal.

Thompson put Buffalo on the board with a power-play goal with 5:34 left in the first. Inside the left circle, Thompson cut further inside before ripping a shot high into the far corner. It was his eighth goal of the season.

Maccelli was credited with Arizona’s second goal with 3:30 left in the first after his pass ricocheted off the skate of Sabers center Dylan Cozens into the Buffalo net.

Arizona took a 3-1 2:24 lead into the third after another deflection from Cozens. O’Brien’s long point shot was deflected by the Sabers center en route to the net.

Vejmelka’s best save of the night came with 3:22 to go when he stopped Buffalo’s Rasmus Asplund at close range.

Keller added an empty-netter with 2:10 to go.

ZAMBONI DELAY

There was a 20-minute delay before the start of the third period due to Zamboni’s malfunction. The Sabers kept the hometown crowd engaged by playing music and showing fans dancing on the Jumbotron. One of the loudest standing ovations of the entire night came when the Sabers showed Buffalo Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins on the Jumbotron during the delay.

THE RETURN OF DAHLIN

Sabers defenseman Rasmus Dahlin returned after missing one game with an upper body injury. The Sabers are starting to get healthier on the blue line; Ilya Lyubushkin returned on Saturday after missing four games.

LONG JOURNEY FORWARD

It was the second game of a 14-game road trip for the Coyotes. They opened the long trip with a 3-2 victory over Washington on Saturday. Their next home game won’t be until Dec. 9 against Boston.

NEXT:

Coyotes: At the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Sabers: Former Sabers captain Jack Eichel and the Las Vegas Golden Knights travel to Buffalo on Thursday.

Often the fate of the universe hinges on cataclysmic events such as Thanos attempting to wipe out half of all life or Doctor Doom gaining powers as powerful as Galactus. But sometimes seemingly insignificant situations can have a profound effect on things to come. Or in one case, narrowly avoiding a disastrous outcome without the knowledge of those involved.


That’s precisely what happened one sunny afternoon on Manhattan’s Lower East Side when a group of New York City kids played soccer in a vacant lot with a super-powered friend. In Spider-Man web #34 (by Jim Shooter and Sal Buscema), Spider-Man watches an innocuous football game being played by those he describes as “local young gentlemen”. Determining that a team needs a player, Spider-Man participates. The game begins after the negotiations regarding the use of superpowers have been completed.

RELATED: Why Hollywood Can’t Get Spider-Man’s Best Daughter?


Meanwhile, on the Moon, a devious Skrull named A’Sai and his companion Grunz infiltrate the Watcher Uatu’s secret facility to satisfy a bet. The Watchers are a race of super beings with vast power who monitor and observe life throughout the universe. A’Sai has retrieved a weapon from Galactus’ homeworld which he uses to subdue the Watcher. Uatu is aware of the destructive abilities of the weapon in A’Sai’s possession and offers another bet to acquire it. Stakes are Galactus’ weapon versus the Observer’s advanced weaponry. They agree to bet not on major planetary upheavals, wars or political events but on a game, the one played by a handful of children on earth and a man with spider powers.

The long-range game continues for Spidey and his teammates. But, after an inspiring pep talk from the wall crawler, they close the gap. A’Sai discovers through the use of Uatu’s computers that what he possesses is far more powerful than he imagined. Seeing that the match might not go his way, he cheats by imbuing one of the opposing players with superhuman energy. This plan fails and A’Sai loses the bet with the Watcher. Uatu banishes him forever to a befitting gambler’s end: frozen in a wild card in a Las Vegas casino.

RELATED: The Secret Invasion Revealed Reed Richards’ Biggest Weakness

If A’Sai had won the bet with Uatu, the outcome could have been disastrous. A Skrull with the means to topple empires would have a profound effect on the future of the Marvel Universe. That, and with Uatu’s technology, A’Sai would be unstoppable. Throughout the football game, A’Sai repeatedly threatens to assassinate the Watcher and likely would have performed the deed had he succeeded. The lone Skrull apparently didn’t answer to anyone; an unfettered villain equipped with an extraordinary arsenal at his fingertips. Since Uatu’s base is on the moon, the first logical target is earth.

If A’Sai was attacking earth with a weapon from Galactus and the Watchers’ arsenal, Spider-Man would never have known that his simple football game was behind the potentially catastrophic attack. During the match, Spider-Man reflects (perhaps due to his innate spider-sense) that there was more at stake than he imagined, but to what extent has never been revealed. The future of humanity and possibly the universe would be irrevocably altered due to an innocent pickup game in an empty lot in Manhattan between a group of city kids and the local superhero.

Apple TV 4K (2022) review: Still the best streaming box by far https://tunalifotograf.com/apple-tv-4k-2022-review-still-the-best-streaming-box-by-far/ Thu, 03 Nov 2022 15:01:53 +0000 https://tunalifotograf.com/apple-tv-4k-2022-review-still-the-best-streaming-box-by-far/ After Apple ultimately gave us a decent Siri Remote last year, I couldn’t imagine the Apple TV 4K getting much better.

After Apple ultimately gave us a decent Siri Remote last year, I couldn’t imagine the Apple TV 4K getting much better. It’s not like anyone’s crying out for an 8K upgrade – all we need these days is fast 4K streaming support, plus the multitude of HDR (high definition range) formats available . The new Apple TV 4K can easily meet these demands, but what’s really impressive is that it’s much faster than before. and it’s much cheaper at $129 (was $179)! Finally, there is an Apple TV that I can recommend to everyone without hesitation.

Gallery: Apple TV 4K (2022) | 6 Pictures


Let’s start with the new: This year’s Apple TV 4K is powered by an A15 Bionic chip, which launched with the iPhone 13 (and is still used in the iPhone 14). It’s a huge leap forward over the previous model’s 2018-era A12. The new box also comes with 64GB of storage, instead of a paltry 32GB. If you’re planning on loading a ton of games and apps, there’s also a 128GB model for $149, which adds a Ethernet port and Internet of Things Thread protocol support. Finally, Apple has integrated HDR10+ support, which works similar to Dolby Vision to deliver more accurate HDR in every scene.

Advantages

  • A15 Rapid Bionic Chip
  • Excellent Siri Remote
  • Large app library
  • tvOS excels at multitasking
  • Much cheaper than before

The inconvenients

  • Ethernet only on $149 model

At first glance, the Apple TV 4K looks like previous models: a smooth black box with obscenely rounded corners. Look a little closer, though, and you’ll notice it’s actually smaller, like an accessory rendering of its predecessor. Apple claims it has 20% less volume than before, due to the loss of the fan from previous models (this one runs quietly) and being powered by more efficient hardware. Apple wouldn’t say exactly what led to the dramatic price drop. But I’d wager that’s due to simpler manufacturing, as well as lower component prices across the board.

If you want to hear me get poetic about Apple’s Siri Remote, just check out my review of the latest Apple TV. I’m still in love with it a year later: it’s easy to hold, has all the basic functions you’d want, and it’s much harder to lose than the previous ultra-thin remote. I still don’t understand why we were forced to use a glass-backed remote with a crummy touchpad on the original Apple TV 4K. Long live the new model and its tactile and directional touchpad.

Sure, the hardware is great, but how is the software? Setting up the Apple TV 4K is now surprisingly easy, assuming you’re already beholden to Apple’s ecosystem. After plugging it in, I only had to tap my iPhone on the box to send my WiFi and iCloud credentials. I chose to sync my home screens, which brought up all the apps on my current Apple TV. At this point, all I had to do was tune into my regular streaming haunts, and I was good to go.

After using every Apple TV the company has released over the past decade, I had an immediate thought when I started using this new model: Damn, this thing is fast. That’s not to say the latest version was slow, far from it. But there’s a liveliness to this year’s box that just feels liberating. I can easily flip through all the apps on my home screen, launch Netflix seconds faster than before, and browse my movie library without breaking a sweat. No more slight delays in loading or reels.

I may just know the rush for a brand new device, a device stripped down by a year of use. But using the new Apple TV 4K feels like the difference between using an iPhone X and iPhone 14 – it just happens faster, with a greater sense of urgency. I found this very useful when switching between apps and different videos. While I was catching up Cabinet of curiosities by Guillermo del Toro on Netflix, I could quickly jump to check out my YouTube channels while my wife needed a bathroom break, then get the goosebumps back when she got back. Again, this is something I did frequently with the previous box, but now the Apple TV seems completely untethered.

Pressed by a moderator on why he described government spending that helped boost his private enterprise as an ‘opportunity’ and spending that benefits others as an ‘addiction’, Joe O’Dea tries to draw a distinction that lands a bit flat.

“When we pay people to sit on the couch at home, that’s addiction,” O’Dea said. “When we pay people to invest in our transportation system, in our water storage system, in our economy, in our energy, these are assets that we are developing. »

Bennet gushed over the “couch” comment, calling it an offense to hard-working people struggling to pay their bills and earn a living.

“I think it’s so insulting to Coloradons when Joe says, ‘Coloradons need to get off the couch’…People in this economy, with this inflation, are killing themselves,” Bennett said. “The problem isn’t that people have to get off the couch in Colorado.”

Bennet went on to highlight O’Dea’s support for the tax cuts passed by Republicans in 2017 under former President Donald Trump, noting how they disproportionately benefited corporations and wealthy individuals.

O’Dea responded with a swipe at President Joe Biden’s “Cutting Inflation Act,” a health care, climate and tax bill.

“You just voted for an ‘Inflation Reduction Act that Bernie Sanders says doesn’t reduce inflation,’ O’Dea shot back. (Sanders, in fact, shared this criticism of a draft bill which he felt did not go far enough on social spending.)

LIMA – Members of the Republican Party met 15 days before the election to prepare for the election. A dinner was organized to meet and discuss the candidates for the November ballot.

JD Vance (R) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined dinner on Tuesday night. Guest speaker Graham is a US Senator from South Carolina. Graham has been in Congress since 2003 and will serve his term until 2027. He was first elected to Congress in 2002 and has just been re-elected for a fourth term in 2020.

Governor Mike DeWine (R), Lt. Jon Husted (R), Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ohio House Speaker Bob Cupp (R), Justice Sharon Kennedy (R) , Ohio State Auditor Keith Faber (R) and Ohio Republican Party Chairman Robert Paduchik joined the panel alongside Vance and Graham.

Vance will run against Congressman Tim Ryan on Nov. 8. He shared his hopes for the future of the United States.

“We need a change in this country,” Vance said. “We have to take this country in a different direction. Inflation kills families. The crime wave is hitting Ohioans, whether rich or poor, black or white. I just think we need to take this state and this country in a different direction. To do this, we must eliminate the current rulers. Tim Ryan was part of the leadership class. I am part of the new generation that will take things in a new direction.

Vance and Ryan recently debated after a previous conflict by hosting a debate. “I think the proceedings went very well,” Vance said. “I was happy to be on stage with him and happy to fend off some of the attacks he made on me and my own record.”

Graham spoke as a guest speaker for the fall dinner. He filled the room with laughter as he focused on preparing the party for the upcoming election and defending Vance.

“If you’re looking for change and people are,” Graham said. “Tim is going to have a hard time selling. JD is new to politics and I think he has a really good future. Trump won Ohio. I think DeWine is going to knock him out of the park; he’s been a great governor .

DeWine shared closing remarks on Intel’s new employment development in Ohio.

“We were way off when we started with Intel,” DeWine said. “What I said to our team is that if we can get Intel, not only will it create thousands of jobs and have a ripple effect for decades to come. It will also send a message to this country that Ohio was a place to come. It’s our time. We have a moral obligation to leave no child without a path. A path to college or a career. We’re headed in that direction.”

LSU holds No. 7 Ole Miss without a TD in last 3 quarters in 45-20 win https://tunalifotograf.com/lsu-holds-no-7-ole-miss-without-a-td-in-last-3-quarters-in-45-20-win/ Sat, 22 Oct 2022 23:03:19 +0000 https://tunalifotograf.com/lsu-holds-no-7-ole-miss-without-a-td-in-last-3-quarters-in-45-20-win/ LSU has its biggest win of the Brian Kelly era.

LSU has its biggest win of the Brian Kelly era.

The Tiger defense stopped Ole Miss’s offense in the second half in a 45-20 win over the No. 7 Rebels. It was Ole Miss’s first loss of the season and, as LSU fans would love pointing it out, it wasn’t a surprise either. LSU entered the game as a 2-point favorite.

Ole Miss took an early 17-3 lead and it briefly looked like it would be a cakewalk. This cakewalk was more of an LSU rout. Ole Miss failed to score a TD the rest of the way as LSU tied the game at 17-17 on the way to a 42-3 run to close the game.

LSU QB Jayden Daniels had five total touchdowns against Ole Miss a week after he had six touchdowns against Florida. Daniels threw for two scores and ran for three as Ole Miss’ defense was powerless to stop him on the ground in the second half. After putting LSU ahead for good with a pass to Mason Taylor for Taylor’s first collegiate TD, Daniels rushed for two scores in the fourth quarter.

Ole Miss’ explosive attack couldn’t spark any sort of comeback. Ole Miss entered the game relying heavily on a rushing attack featuring Quinshon Judkins and Zach Evans. With Evans out Saturday, the rushing charge fell on Judkins and LSU grabbed it. Judkins finished with over 100 yards and two scores, but Ole Miss averaged less than four yards per carry as a team.

Ole Miss QB Jaxson Dart threw over 30 passes in a game for the second time this season and wasn’t very effective. Dart was 19 of 34 passes for 284 yards and an interception. After totaling nearly 300 yards of offense in the first half, the Rebels only broke the 100 yard mark in the second half in awful weather.

Is LSU a contender in the SEC West?

It was hard to envision LSU as a team to be reckoned with in SEC West in Kelly’s freshman season after their self-inflicted 24-23 loss to Florida State in Week 1. And it’s also worth mentioning that this is the same Tigers team that was strangled 40-13 by Tennessee two weeks ago.

But at 6-2, LSU should be ranked in the AP Top 25 on Sunday and heads into its bye week with Alabama next and dreams of a 10-win season.

While a 10-win season is a long shot — the tide will be favored Nov. 5 — a nine-win season is now a reasonable expectation with a home stretch from Arkansas, UAB and Texas A&M. And if LSU beats Alabama, well, SEC West would be the Tigers’ loss in the final three weeks of the season, because LSU would have tiebreakers over Crimson Tide and Ole Miss.

Daniels had his worst rushing game of the season in that loss to Tennessee with 16 carries for 38 yards. Since then, he has scored six rushing touchdowns among his 11 total touchdowns and now has 21 total touchdowns in eight games.

He has also made progress as a passer. Daniels was just 8 of 20 in a 21-17 win over Auburn and has completed more than 70% of his passes since then. If Daniels continues to be a scoring threat on the ground and in the air and LSU’s defense is as good as it was the last three quarters on Saturday, then the rivalry game against Alabama is two weeks away. could be a lot spicier than many initially thought.

When we last saw Amicia and Hugo de Rune in A Plague Tale: Innocence, the two homeless orphans escaped the clutches of the Inquisition, desperately trying to find a cure for the cursed Prima Macula in Hugo’s blood. They were also fighting for their lives against thousands of bloodthirsty rats eager to devour them. These two have been through more danger and trauma than anyone should have in a thousand lifetimes, and after the rather happy ending of the first game, it got me thinking: when will these kids get a break?

It turns out the answer is never. Asobo’s sequel A Plague Tale: Requiem is just as bloody and dark as its predecessor and as the siblings continue to fight in a violent world that wants them dead, they will both face tough moral decisions in the name of survival. Oh, and there are more rats. As, a lot more rats.

In Requiem, the duo are forced to flee their homeland and travel south, still trying to find a way to control Hugo’s supernatural power that allows him to control rats. The two specifically search for an island that appeared in Hugo’s dreams in hopes that it holds the key to saving him from his affliction. It’s long, but it’s the only lead they have.

Much of what you’ll do is the same as in the first game, lots of stealth, taking out soldiers with Amicia’s slingshot, using different combinations of alchemy, and sneakily manipulating the horde of rats to work in your favor. It’s all very familiar, but Requiem expands on many of these features, making for a bigger, darker sequel.

The rat-tech is more impressive than ever. Watching a tidal wave of rats devour an entire city – crashing through the streets, spilling over walls, and engulfing entire buildings – is terrifying.

From the very first scene of the game, it’s obvious that Asobo really focused on the show with Requiem. Innocence was set against the backdrop of a dark, war-torn France – with blood-stained battlefields and disease-stricken cities – and while Requiem was also dark and dark in its outlook, Asobo gave the series a major burst. I have always been struck by the beauty of Requiem. Sure, there are still plenty of disgusting rats’ nests and towns full of corpses that make my stomach churn, but there are also quaint medieval towns, pebble beaches, lavender fields and rolling oceans. . In beauty or in ruin, the environments are magnificent.

What doesn’t kill you
A new skill automatically unlocks additional abilities to suit your playstyle. If you’re more sneaky, you can unlock skill perks that allow you to make less noise when moving, but if you’re more aggressive, there are another set of perks that lets you push enemies into open fire and rat nests. Yeah.

The siblings’ surroundings may have improved somewhat in the sunny south of France, but their situation has never looked bleaker, and it won’t be long before the show’s real stars arrive. , in all their little toothy glory. This time, however, Amicia has a lot more tools at its disposal. Your trusty slingshot is back, allowing you to carefully and accurately throw stones and alchemical powders to distract or eliminate soldiers. Staying close to a light source and finding the best patch of long grass to hide in is still key to survival, but with larger sets it feels like you’re actively choosing your own route and style. playing through danger instead of following what has been laid. out before you.

How aggressive you want to be is always up to you. Throwing a boulder at a chest full of metal armor to get a guard’s attention is one way, or blowing out their torch and plunging them into darkness so the rats can feast on their bodies in is, uh, definitely another.

You can get a nice first-person view of the horde as you decide where to move them and who to devour. Which isn’t terrible at all.

The tension between violence and justice was something I loved about Innocence and, as Katharine noted in her preview, it’s an ongoing ethical dilemma kids have to deal with in Requiem. Amicia’s arsenal in Requiem now includes a deadly crossbow, a knife that can be used to quickly stab soldiers to death, and tar that burns when it comes in contact with open flame – incredibly useful for taking out heavy soldiers shielded. All three are fast, aggressive, and hard to watch unfold.

Right in the feelings
I really want to shout out Charlotte McBurney playing Amicia real fast. The energy and sheer ferocity she brings to the role is pretty incredible. Be prepared to have your heart well and really ripped out.

What’s interesting about Requiem is that it’s not just teenage Amicia who has to grapple with the ethics of her actions, but also Hugo. The five-year-old still has the power to control the horde of rats, an ability he discovered near the end of Innocence, and he uses it multiple times to devastating effect. As the two desperately seek protection, Amicia begins to grow more aggressive and is also forced to watch her brother go down the same violent path. If the first game was about two estranged siblings who trusted each other, Requiem explains how this ethical dilemma separates them.

It feels like this escalation is heading towards some sort of conclusion, but sadly it dies off halfway through the game as the story becomes more preoccupied with the duo finding Hugo’s cure. It’s an unexpected change of direction that puts the story on uneven ground. The emotional fallout throughout the game is still touching, but it’s a shame they don’t explore the idea in more depth, especially when Innocence and Requiem rely so heavily on the bond between the two siblings. At least there’s no pope rat.

In beauty or in ruin, the environments look gorgeous and with Asobo’s tactful art direction, Requiem feels visually cinematic, which really helps bring those emotional moments home, like adding a shiny feather duster to a punch.

Other storytelling issues involve Requiem’s ​​new cast. Beatrice, Amicia and Hugo’s mother, returns from the last game, as does Lucas, a young alchemist who tries to help the two siblings keep their spirits up. However, these familiar faces are quickly replaced as Requiem introduces other new characters. The first is enemy-turned-friend Arnaud, a knight who will charge into battle for siblings on instruction, adding yet another violent option to Amicia’s arsenal. The second is pirate girl Sophia, who can set grass on fire with her mirror to distract the guards and acts as emotional support for the two children in moments.

Mechanically both add some nice options to how you handle the sneaky parts of the game, but story-wise they’re rushed so fast they never felt like they had a lot of background work, which means I didn’t feel as attached to this new gang as I did to the bunch of scoundrels at the end of Innocence. In all honesty, I ended up really liking Sophia towards the end of the game (she looks devilish but it’s actually a cinnamon roll vibe that’s completely endearing) but that doesn’t stop Arnaud and her from feeling like empty vehicles to delivering fun new abilities instead of fully rounded characters.

There are many different environments in Requiem, both beautiful and horrifying. My screenshot folder is well and truly stuffed.

Requiem is certainly a dazzling display of detail, color, and thoughtful art direction, but it never quite reaches the momentum of its predecessor, even if the stakes are unequivocally higher. Huge settings and a wider selection of abilities make sneaking through areas infested with soldiers and rats an exciting, if slightly repetitive, challenge, but Requiem’s ​​story fails to maintain the same level of drama and of show.

OGDEN — Conservation continues to be the most effective and least expensive solution to saving the shrinking Great Salt Lake. It was the most common concept shared Thursday as Utah House President Brad Wilson hosted the second annual Great Salt Lake Summit.

The summit highlighted measures that work and ideas worth exploring.

At present, the Great Salt Lake is at its lowest depth in history. This is why several speakers at the summit declared that all reasonable solutions were on the table.

“It’s really a moment where everyone is on deck,” said Joel Ferry, executive director of the Utah Department of Natural Resources. “And, I would appeal to all citizens of the State of Utah to do their part.”

Ferry said every gallon counts, and many Utahns act that way.

They collectively saved nine billion gallons of water over the summer through voluntary conservation.

“Conservation has to be our first choice at all levels, period. Not only does it have to be our first choice, but it’s actually the most cost-effective choice. So before we get to where we’re spending dozens billions of dollars to build pipes somewhere, let’s do conservation,” Ferry said.

No single solution will restore the lake to greater depths.

“We have to explore all options,” he said. “We need to explore the possibilities of going to the Midwestern states if they have excess water and see if we can get a contract with them.”

He acknowledged that it’s a long plan, but leaders need to think it through.

In a series of panel discussions, key players in Utah’s water policy discussed everything from ways to conserve water in agriculture, businesses and our homes, to more creative and expensive like cloud seeding and bringing in water from out of state.

“A lot of the handy fruit is about to be picked,” Wilson said. “It’s going to get trickier. It’s going to get tougher. But, what I think will make the difference in the long run is that we continue to see the Utahns do what they’ve been doing this year.”

A recent poll by the Deseret News showed that 80% of Utah residents are concerned about the lake, and nearly that number (73%) think we should continue to invest in solutions. So the Utahns are engaged.

Last winter, Utah lawmakers invested half a billion dollars in conservation measures that went into effect in July.

“You will see another year this session coming up where there will be a significant investment in water conservation and everything around it and they will help preserve and protect the Great Salt Lake,” Wilson said.
