Amy Confirmed As Next DLC Character

Game Informer News Feed - Sat, 02/16/2019 - 19:07
Publisher: Bandai Namco Developer: Project Soul Release: October 19, 2018 Rating: Teen Platform: PlayStation 4

Bandai Namco has announced who the third of four planned DLC characters will be coming to Soulcalibur VI as part of the game's season pass.

Amy Sorel, who was first made playable back in Soulcalibur III, will be returning the to the weapons-based fighting series, the company announced at this year's Evo Japan. Sporting a rapier-wielding style similar to her adopted father Raphael, Amy has a few tricks up her sleeves, including quick mix-up strings, a rose toss, and a slide that can extend combos. You can watch her in action in the Japanese-language trailer below.

The announcement seems to give credence to a leak from data-mined info from late last year that could mean Cassandra will be the next DLC character, as that leak showed that both she and Amy were in the game's config file. Hopefully, that'll the case.

<p>Virgin Voyages is extending its brand beyond its upcoming cruise ships.</p><p>The soon-to-launch cruise line announced Thursday that it will build a beach club on the Bahamian island of Bimini.</p><p>“The Beach Club at Bimini” will be located a short distance away from the port and, while docked, Virgin Voyages passengers will have exclusive use of the space, <a href="https://www.travelweekly.com/Cruise-Travel/Virgin-Voyages-building-beach-club-on-Bimini" target="_blank"><em>Travel Weekly</em> reported</a>.</p><p>At the beach club, passengers (or “sailors” as the brand is calling them), will be able to party the day away or delve into the island’s culture. According to the cruise line, the beach club will launch a scene to rival the beach parties of Ibiza or Saint Tropez.</p><img alt="Bimini Beach Club - Virgin Voyages "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1550250339/bimini-beach-club-sea-swing-VVBC0219.jpg?itok=nsgbAPmV"><p>Renderings of the club show a menagerie of luxe hammocks and pavilions with chandeliers. A large, lagoon-style pool, with DJ booth at its head, will be the centerpiece of the club.</p><p>The ethos behind the club is one of detox and retox. Morning activities include yoga and meditation on the beach. Food menus (all complimentary) will include island-inspired cuisine like conch and mango salad, banana leaf-wrapped queen snapper and Bahamian rum cake.</p><img alt="Bimini Beach Club - Virgin Voyages "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1550250339/bimini-beach-club-vip-lounge-VVBC0219.jpg?itok=ImWqIb3s"><p>Activities at the beach club will <a href="https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/20374-virgin-voyages-opens-bookings-announces-the-beach-club-at-bimini.html" target="_blank">amp up throughout the day</a>, reaching “the high point of the day by the afternoon where DJ-led pool and flotilla parties will be center of the action.” Come nightfall, it’s a laid-back ambiance with bonfires on the beach and acoustic musical performances.</p><p>The club is bringing some big names to the Bahamas. Mark Ronson — the DJ and producer behind hits like “Uptown Funk” — will be the founding DJ at the Beach Club and among the first to step behind the turntables with four performances in 2020.</p><p>Virgin Voyages trips from April 1 through October 21, 2020 are <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/cruises/virgin-voyages-cruises-open-for-booking" target="_blank">now open for booking.</a></p>

Extremely Rare African Black Leopard Photographed in Wild for First Time in More Than 100 Years

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 02/16/2019 - 17:37
<p>A rare African black leopard was photographed in the wild for the first time in more than 100 years.</p><p>British wildlife photographer <a href="http://www.burrard-lucas.com/" target="_blank">Will Burrard-Lucas released a collection of photographs</a> on Monday that show the animal lurking about Kenya’s Laikipia Wilderness Camp.</p><p>“As far as I know, these are the first high-quality camera trap photographs of a wild melanistic leopard ever taken in Africa,” Burrard-Lucas <a href="https://www.camtraptions.com/black-leopard.html" target="_blank">wrote</a>.</p><p>When Burrard-Lucas heard about a smattering of black leopard sightings around Laikipia, he decided to head to the park with a collection of camera traps in an attempt to photograph the animal. The camera traps consisted of a “wireless motion sensor, a high-quality DSLR camera and two or three flashes.”</p><p>There were several unsuccessful nights before Burrard-Lucas was able to snap a photograph of the elusive animal, and the hardwon shots are striking. The black leopard emerges out of the landscape with its eyes shining bright in the camera flash.</p><p>The black leopard’s color is the result of melanism (a gene mutation that’s basically opposite of albinism). The over-production of pigment creates the leopard’s inky black coloring. <a href="https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/13/africa/kenya-rare-black-leopard-black-panther/index.html" target="_blank">According to Nick Pilford, lead researcher of a leopard conservation program in Laikipia County</a>, “melanism occurs in about 11% of leopards globally, but most of these leopards live in South East Asia.”</p><p>“We had always heard about black leopard living in this region, but the stories were absent of high-quality footage that could confirm their existence,” <a href="https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/02/rare-black-leopards-of-africa-captured-in-photographic-first" target="_blank">Pilford told <em>USA Today</em></a>. “This is what Will’s photos and the videos on our remote cameras now prove, and are exceptionally rare in their detail and insight.”</p><p>There is some contention around who has been the first to capture an image of the black leopard in the 21st century. A biologist’s leopard sighting was <a href="https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1111/aje.12586?referrer_access_token=Ky9aa1bmFxDFdFIyd1NP_Yta6bR2k8jH0KrdpFOxC65qpYX16YCvkAEYVdy3Px9BFKRYQ59EhXcDqFPlCTFI9btXXFcuRMiPezTezbfNb-mU4vo2MC10vNK_39B7zkBz" target="_blank">detailed in the African Journal of Ecology</a> in July 2018 (the article was published in December) but there was not any imagery.</p><p>But one newspaper in Kenya, <a href="https://www.nation.co.ke/news/Black-Leopard-Laikipia/1056-4979572-iw3vpbz/index.html" target="_blank"><em>The Daily Nation</em>, is challenging the new claim</a>, saying that one of their photographers captured a shot of the leopard back in 2013.</p>

You Can Travel the World for Free — If You're Willing to Do It With a Stranger

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 02/16/2019 - 17:36
<p>Travel lovers are usually up for just about any adventure that comes their way. But one tour company is hoping to take that “up for anything” attitude one step further by giving away a trip around the world filled with surprises and one major catch: The winner will have to travel with a total stranger.</p><p><a href="http://www.tourradar.com" target="_blank">TourRadar</a>, the world’s largest online travel agency for multi-day tours, is seeking two complete strangers ready and willing to travel together on the trip of a lifetime as part of its <a href="https://www.tourradar.com/tour-the-world" target="_blank">Tour the World</a> campaign.</p><p><strong>Related:</strong> <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-tips/how-to-quit-job-and-travel" target="_blank">How to Quit Your Job and Travel the World, According to People Who Have Done It</a></p><p>Together, two willing participants who have never met before will travel across the globe and experience multi-day tours in five different countries across five different continents while sharing the journey on social media.</p><p><strong>Related:</strong> <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/jobs/fortune-100-best-companies-travel" target="_blank">These Are the Best Travel Companies to Work For</a></p><p>“Multi-day touring is the easiest way possible for any traveler to experience the world in a relatively short amount of time,” TourRadar’s chief marketing officer Michael Potscher said in a statement. “Through our Tour the World campaign, we are creating the ultimate trip of a lifetime for two strangers that will inspire others to engage in life-enriching experiences through multi-day touring.”</p><p>A professional film crew will follow the two winners and their worldwide adventures to create content for TourRadar's social media and marketing channels as well.</p><p>Beyond not knowing each other, the two chosen participants will also have no idea where they are going until their flights are booked. All they will know, TourRadar said, is that they will be traveling to five different continents and the trip will take approximately 50 to 60 days to complete. All airfare, accommodations, expenses, and meals will be covered.</p><p>To be considered for this epic journey, would-be travelers need to submit a two-minute-long video explaining why they should be chosen for the Tour the World experience by March 24th. Winners will be announced in April and the experience will begin in May. So, if you’re not afraid of stranger danger and you’re up for anything, now is most certainly your time to shine.</p>
