Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a single-player action-adventure RPG for PC, developed by FromSoftware and published by Activision Blizzard. The game is set in Japan, during the 1500s’ Sengoku period. Players’ will travel the feudal land as Sekiro, one-armed samurai warrior and face dangerous foes, both in combat and stealth action. The game is scheduled to hit the stores in March 2019.GameplayIn Sekiro, the players take control of the main character named Sekiro, or “One-armed Wolf”, a lone samurai warrior. Unlike in previous FromSoftware games, the player cannot influence the appearance of Sekiro.In combat, the protagonist uses two katanas. Players can switch between them, but they cannot be dual-wielded. Sekiro also has a prosthetic arm replacing his missing limb. The Shinobi Prosthetic, as it is called in the game, can be fitted with various attachments, which serve different purposes. Grappling hook allows climbing into elevated areas to search for items or stealthy plan attack from above, axe can be equipped to shatter enemies’ shields, flamethrower lights enemies on fire and can also be used to ignite players’ katana, and many more. Equippable tools can be upgraded by different means, such as finding crafting materials or spending skill points.Sekiro’s combat mechanics are based on what developers describe as “battle of postures” system. Instead of directly attacking the opponent and dealing damage, players must throw their foe off balance and break their guard. By attacking the enemies’ defense stance, the player fills in a gauge visible in the top of the screen. When the gauge is full, the player can break the guard of their adversary and deal a lethal strike with their sword. In most cases one strike is enough to kill the enemy, however, there are some, who require more effort. These foes act as the bosses in the game. The same mechanic that players use on their enemies can be used against them. That’s why Sekiro emphasizes constant offensive, filling the enemies gauge to dispose of them quickly, and not letting them retaliate.Defeating enemies and bosses rewards the player with experience, which later gives skill points. The skill points can be spent on upgrading various aspects of Sekiro’s abilities divided into three skill trees: Shinobi, Samurai and Prosthetic Arm.Stealth in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an important aspect of gameplay. Players can enter stealth mode to quietly sneak on unsuspecting enemies and kill them without alerting others or eavesdrop to gather information. Players can use elements of the environment, such as patches of tall grass to hide before enemies’ eyes. The hiding spots in Sekiro are described as dynamic, which means that they can be negatively influenced by foes, for example by burning grass. Enemies alerted to players’ presence will come to investigate. While doing that the marker above their head will be yellow. When the marker turns red, that means Sekiro was spotted and players must get ready for a confrontation. Story and CharactersSekiro: Shadows Die Twice is set in 16th century Japan during the famous Sengoku period. Japan is split into warring kingdoms, where feudal lords waged brutal battles with the help of samurai warriors. The main character of the game, Sekiro, is one of such samurai. Sekiro’s master, a young feudal lord, was kidnapped by the Ashina clan, and the samurai himself was disfigured and left for dead.Now he sets out on the quest to regain his honor and rescue his master. Sekiro is armed with both, a traditional Japanese katana sword as well as a prosthetic which allows him to equip various helpful tools which he can use in his travels and during fights. Because of his severed arm, the samurai is known as a one-armed wolf who seeks revenge on his attackers.ReceptionEarly impressions of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice for PC were very positive. After its reveal at E3 2018 critics praised the game for innovative gameplay mechanics and climate of Sengoku era Japan recreated in the game. The game is considered a huge hit, drawing comparisons to other series from this studio, namely Dark Souls. Players especially love the difficulty level, combat and overall climate of the game.

Antarctica, Art and Archive (eBook, ePUB)
44,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Antarctica, that icy wasteland and extreme environment at the ends of the earth, was - at the beginning of the 20th century - the last frontier of Victorian imperialism, a territory subjected to heroic and sometimes desperate exploration. Now, at the start of the 21st century, Antarctica is the vulnerable landscape behind iconic images of climate change. In this genre-crossing narrative Gould takes us on a journey to the South Pole, through art and archive. Through the life and tragic death of Edward Wilson, polar explorer, doctor, scientist and artist, and his watercolours, and through the work of a pioneer of modern anthropology and opponent of scientific racism, Franz Boas, Gould exposes the legacies of colonialism and racial and gendered identities of the time. Antarctica, the White Continent, far from being a blank - and white - canvas, is revealed to be full of colour. Gould argues that the medium matters and that the practices of observation in art, anthropology and science determine how we see and what we know. Stories of exploration and open-air watercolour painting, of weather experiments and ethnographic collecting, of evolution and extinction, are interwoven to raise important questions for our times. Revisiting Antarctica through the archive becomes the urgent endeavour to imagine an inhabitable planetary future.

100 Nasty Women of History: Brilliant, badass a...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One hundred fascinating and brilliantly written stories about history's bravest, baddest but little known 'nasty' women from across the world. In the final debate of the 2016 US presidential election, Donald Trump leaned into the microphone as Hillary Clinton spoke about Social Security and called his opponent 'such a nasty woman'. The phrase has stuck around and has since become something of a badge of honour for women around the world. What better time than now, then, for us to look back and learn a thing or two from the 'nasty' women of the past? Compiled and written by BuzzFeed writer Hannah Jewell, 100 Nasty Women of History contains profiles of women from across every century, race and continent, united in the fact that they were all a bit 'nasty'. From third-century Japanese empress Jingu to 20th-century British social reformer Octavia Hill, these are the women who were bold and powerful but maybe put people (men's) backs up by being so. 100 Nasty Women of History is an accessible, intelligent, hilarious (and sometimes sweary) guide to the history-making women whom you probably don't know - but definitely should. 1.

The Master of Go
14,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Go is a game of strategy in which two players attempt to surround each other's black or white stones. Simple in its fundamentals, infinitely complex in its execution, Go is an essential expression of the Japanese spirit. And in his fictional chronicle of a match played between a revered and heretofore invincible Master and a younger, more modern challenger, Yasunari Kawabata captured the moment in which the immutable traditions of imperial Japan met the onslaught of the twentieth century. The competition between the Master of Go and his opponent, Otaké, is waged over several months and layered in ceremony. But beneath the game's decorum lie tensions that consume not only the players themselves but their families and retainers-tensions that turn this particular contest into a duel that can only end in death. Luminous in its detail, both suspenseful and serene, The Master of Go is an elegy for an entire society, written with the poetic economy and psychological acumen that brought Kawabata the Nobel Prize for Literature. Translated from the Japanese by Edward G. Seidensticker
