Eiyuden Chronicle: One Hundred Heroes “Under Technical Investigation” for Switch https://fromthedeskofmikestewart.com/eiyuden-chronicle-one-hundred-heroes-under-technical-investigation-for-switch/ Mon, 09 May 2022 19:00:00 +0000 https://fromthedeskofmikestewart.com/eiyuden-chronicle-one-hundred-heroes-under-technical-investigation-for-switch/ Image: Rabbit and Bear Studios If you are a fan of Suikoden series, which you have no doubt heard of (or even supported) Chronicle of Eiyuden: One Hundred Heroes.

If you are a fan of Suikoden series, which you have no doubt heard of (or even supported) Chronicle of Eiyuden: One Hundred Heroes. Announced in 2020, the game was fully funded within two hours of Kickstarter launching and earned over $4.5 million by the end of the campaign.

At the time, the Nintendo Switch wasn’t a confirmed platform — and it still isn’t! Instead, Rabbit & Bear Studios expressed concern about the Switch’s age and instead said it was targeting “Nintendo’s next-gen console.”

However, in an update posted on the game’s Kickstarter page – which is mostly in anticipation of the game’s prequel, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, launching tomorrow – the developer shared something interesting in the FAQ section regarding the game. major.

Apparently, many fans have been asking about a Switch release for Hundred Heroes, especially since Rising is releasing on Nintendo’s hybrid console. The prequel action RPG is meant to connect with Hundred Heroes as long as you play them on the same system. So what does this mean for people picking up Rising on the Switch, when the main course isn’t slated to release on the system?

Well, it turns out that a Switch version of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is being investigated by the team. Here’s what Rabbit & Bear said about it:

Although the release of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has not been confirmed for the Nintendo Switch, we are currently conducting a technical investigation into the development of a Switch version of the game.

If you purchase Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising for the Nintendo Switch, you will be able to enjoy crossover content from Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes on any confirmed Nintendo console version in the future.

Of course, that doesn’t mean anything as it stands, and given the developer’s reservations at the Kickstarter launch two years ago, we’re trying not to get our hopes up. But ever since Rising got an official release date, we’ve been secretly hoping for a potential change of heart, even though we realize game development isn’t as easy as clicking your fingers.

We’ll keep you posted when Rabbit & Bear Studios makes a decision for its turn-based RPG. In the meantime, we have at least one city-building action game to keep us busy! Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will launch tomorrow, May 10, on the Switch eShop.

Will you be picking up Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising tomorrow? Would you like to see a Switch version of Hundred Heroes? Join us in worrying about the second possibility below.

Inside the FA school for technical directors, one of football’s most misunderstood roles https://fromthedeskofmikestewart.com/inside-the-fa-school-for-technical-directors-one-of-footballs-most-misunderstood-roles/ Mon, 02 May 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://fromthedeskofmikestewart.com/inside-the-fa-school-for-technical-directors-one-of-footballs-most-misunderstood-roles/ After spending 20 minutes assembling Legos, some of English football’s brightest minds explain how their creations exemplify a higher purpose at their clubs. “This cup represents success on the pitch.

After spending 20 minutes assembling Legos, some of English football’s brightest minds explain how their creations exemplify a higher purpose at their clubs.

“This cup represents success on the pitch. This bridge leads to a new stadium and it is going to be life changing for people in the area,” Paul Watson, Luton Town’s chief operating officer, told his classmates.

In a snapshot, it might be misunderstood as a training day for staff, but it’s not like anything out of The Office, as Watson is then challenged and opinions come and go across the room. Is it success without your mug? Can you get to that moment of glory without the Lego building blocks earlier in the process?

Welcome to a day on the Football Association Technical Directors course. There are 16 ‘cohorts’, rather than pupils, and fittingly they sit in the Howard Wilkinson meeting room in St George’s Park, named after the man who held that role for the FA.

All are involved in football and have been supported by their clubs to follow a year and a half course. There’s a Tottenham Hotspur flavor on a table as Dean Austin and Colin Calderwood sit together. Others come from Premier League or English Football League clubs, or are involved in administration. Julian Ward, soon to be sporting director at Liverpool, is part of this promotion.

Every Premier League club has a technical director – as do some at a lower level, such as Queens Park Rangers in the form of Les Ferdinand – but it’s one of football’s most misunderstood roles. There was a mistrust of early technical directors from the time Damien Comolli signed Juande Ramos from Tottenham in 2007 and faced more questions than his head coach when he unveiled the Spaniard. “Comolli cut an uncomfortable figure as he attempted to take on the role he plays at the club,” read a national newspaper report of the press conference.

“The English game always understands what the role is”

Since the doctorates could be written on the tasks of the technical director, the course is not a prescriptive manual on how to do the job. Many are classed as transfer gurus, brokering deals for new signings, others working on their clubs’ culture and the systems in place.

“The basic understanding is that it looks at the long-term functioning of the club,” explains Monaco technical director Laurence Stewart. “It provides stability, but the components it contains may vary. It doesn’t have to be recruiting. It doesn’t have to be sports science. It doesn’t need to be be medical.

“England is still exploring and understanding what it is. The managerial culture is stronger than in other countries. But in this country, in the example of Man City and Liverpool, there has been a clearly defined structure, I’m sure there are challenges, but they seem to operate in a highly qualified manner.

Stewart sits in a common area of ​​St George’s and is in an ideal position to see how the role of technical director has evolved. He started at Manchester City and Everton, moved to RB Leipzig as head of scouting and is now in France.

He is doing an internship alongside his work in Monaco and is flying to France at the end of the session. Half of the course is based at St George’s and the rest at other clubs, with cohort discussions about their recent trip to Harlequins. The emphasis is on leadership, whether in the boardroom, the first team or around the club.

“You can challenge yourself and solidify your own thinking in certain areas,” says Stewart. “One of the greatest experiences is being around other people from a similar environment but with different challenges. You learn about the energy in the room.

There is a lot of coming and going in the room. There is a discussion of the All Blacks rugby team’s ‘no-heading policy’.

“It’s the s— that we have to deal with sometimes,” one of the band members says as the room lights up with laughter. “What if the guy making this policy is the d—head himself?” someone said, with a few knowing looks around the room. There are deep discussions about dealing with tragedy within clubs and there is regular talk of the importance of a work-life balance, which seems almost impossible in an all-consuming role.

“If you want to let it take 24 hours out of your day, that can do it,” says one cohort. One exercise is to listen for a full minute without interruption to another person’s journey to where they are now and the obstacles they have faced (it’s harder than it sounds). “Have any of you done this with a new signature?” asked FA technical director John McDermott. Silence.

Job security, like for a manager, is non-existent

The course was launched under the leadership of Dan Ashworth and there might be Lego and a game of Dobble, but the fundamental underpinning of it all is leadership in a club.

“Part of our intention is to help you do your job well, keep your job and thrive,” said Phil Church, the FA’s Senior Professional Coach Development Manager. “We have brilliant talent and the lane is something we can look to influence. We have high performing artists and high potential and people should take notice. One part changes the narrative.

Crude Oil Price Analysis:

  • Oil prices remain supported by new supply constraints, but key technical levels hold on
  • US Crude (WTI)aims to clear the $110 psychological handle but will the bullish momentum prevail?
  • price actionremains encapsulated between the Fibonacci levels of historical moves

{{GUIDE|OIL|}}

Collision between technical and oil fundamentals

Following the invasion of Ukraine in late February, oil prices continued to soar, with WTI and Brent finding support above the $100 per barrel (bbl) mark.

As condemnation against the Kremlin continues to mount, the embargo against Russian energy and gas from Western allies and their European counterparts (including Germany, a major importer of Russian energy) has exacerbated fears that inflationary pressures may continue to mount.

Technical Analysis of US Crude Oil (WTI)

While fundamental factors are likely to remain an important driver of price action, the monthly chart below shows how key technical levels in historical and short-term moves have helped provide firm levels of support and resistance for the price. evolution of prices, holding both ups and downs. at the bay.

After breaking above the 2014 high of $107.65 in early March, the inability to gain ground above $120 allowed sellers to push prices down, before stabilizing around the $100 handle.

With both psychological and Fibonacci Levels Currently in play, the monthly CCI (commodity channel index) remains in overbought territory, suggesting that while the uptrend remains intact (for now), the bulls may be losing steam.

While inflation currently remains at a decade high, supply constraints have been exacerbated by the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, providing further catalyst for price action.

Chart prepared by Tammy DaCosta using TradingView

Like prices continue to oscillate between the Fib levels of the historical movement (2008 – 2020) and 2014 – 2016, the $94-$108 range will likely continue to hold with a breakout on either side increasing the likelihood of a breakout.

For the upward trajectory to hold, the bulls will need to conquer the $108 and $110 levels, with the next level of resistance remaining firm at $116.58 (the 14.4% Fib of the 2008-2020 move). If this level is broken, a break of the psychological bar of $120 could leave the door open for a retest of the 2022 high at $130.5.

However, for bearish momentum to gain momentum, sellers would need to drive prices below $100 which could then yield $93.56 (the 38.2% retracement of the move from Nov 2020 to 2022) stake. If prices continue to fall below $90.00 and $88.39 (23.6% Fib from 2014-2016 move)it is possible for WTI to retest $80.00.

Wembley Stadium, London
CNN

Tyson Fury retained his WBC heavyweight title after beating Dillian Whyte by sixth-round technical knockout in front of 94,000 raucous fans at Wembley Stadium.

It was a true boxing masterclass from Fury, who further cemented his place at the top of the heavyweight division this generation.

Whyte entered the fight with serious aspirations to take the WBC belt from Fury, but was outmatched and outclassed from the opening bell in what was one of the most anticipated heavyweight fights in recent history. .

“He [Whyte] did not fight the world champion tonight,” Fury said in his post-match press conference. “I’m not the world champion, I’m a legend in this game. You can’t deny it, I’m the best heavyweight there ever was.

The 94,000 tickets sold out in just a few hours and set an all-time record for the biggest boxing match attendance in Europe and the biggest in the world of the 21st century.

Wembley Stadium was three-quarters full two hours before Fury and Whyte even took their ringside walks – perhaps unsurprising given some fans had paid around £2,000 ($2,570 ) for the most premium seats.

With the two fighters hailing from the UK – Fury from Manchester and Whyte from London – they were each treated to a raucous reception when they first appeared on the big screens, Fury narrowly edging Whyte on the Decibel meter. .

Thanks to his larger-than-life character and incredible technical abilities, Fury possesses a unique magnetism and is extraordinarily popular among British boxing fans, but Whyte’s grit and determination over what has at times been a career in roller coaster also endeared him to the public.

This shot at the WBC heavyweight title was long overdue and many felt it was long overdue.

The build-up to the fight had been uncharacteristically friendly by heavyweight division standards, with both men clearly having a great deal of respect for each other.

The couple shared a number of comedic moments during fight week, including when they participated in a dance during the weigh-in.

Fury also caused the assembled media to burst into laughter at Wednesday’s press conference when he playfully grabbed Whyte during the confrontation.

As expected, however, all the niceties dissipated when the first bell rang; Fury had promised fans “a real war” in the ring and it was certainly a promise he kept.

With the defending champ boasting superior skill should the fight go on and be decided on points, Whyte knew his only realistic shot to claim the title was to knock Fury out, so he naturally started on the front foot.

After a tentative first round, Whyte came off swinging at the start of the second with a huge right hook that Fury dodged gracefully, drawing the crowd’s first ‘ooh’.

As the third round drew to a close, Fury landed two punches on Whyte and gave himself a nod of approval.

On the fourth, the niceties were well and truly over. Whyte seemed upset with Fury for an apparent use of the head, leading referee Mark Lyson to give the two men a stern talk in their respective corners.

The clash injected some animosity into the fight, as Lyson once again had to separate the fighters after they landed several punches while hanging in the corner.

For a split second, Whyte looked like he was going for Fury after the bell had run out, seemingly unhappy with what he initially thought was a late shot.

Whyte struggles to get up after Fury lands the final uppercut.

Such was the growing tension, the referee was forced to herd the fighters into the middle of the ring before the start of the fifth round.

The crowd inside Wembley rose to their feet after Fury delivered an opening blow to Whyte’s body, before staggering his opponent for the first time with a shot to the head.

Whyte began to look increasingly desperate as round six wore on, finding himself on the ropes after aiming for a wild swing that Fury easily dodged.

It was the beginning of the end for a clearly tired Whyte.

Without his guard, Whyte walked straight into a shaky right uppercut from Fury.

The lights went out instantly for Whyte, who dropped onto his back like a big felled tree. He did well to get back to his feet, but Lyson was forced to stop the fight after Whyte staggered past him.

Fury makes his way into the ring ahead of the WBC heavyweight title fight.

Now the question is: what next for Fury? The 33-year-old insisted several times during the week that he was going to retire after this fight, a claim his training partner Joseph Parker called “very sincere”.

Fury said in his post-fight interview that it was now “curtains” for his boxing career.

Whether or not Fury will keep his word remains to be seen, but he’s a fighter still at the peak of his powers and the idea of ​​unifying the heavyweight titles must remain a tantalizing proposition, even for a man who has achieved so much. in the sport.

After his dismantling of Anthony Joshua, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk is in possession of the other heavyweight belts and a fight between Fury and one of those fighters would be a tantalizing matchup for fans of the sport.

With 94,000 fans hanging on his every word and joining in on his now-iconic rendition of Don McLean’s “American Pie,” it would surely be hard for Fury to say no to a last night under the lights.

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Western Technical College’s interior design program is getting a financial boost.

The La Crosse-based school opened the Joyce Wanek Center for Arts and Design on Wednesday morning.

Wanek, a 1979 Western alum, and her husband, Ron, donated $375,000 to the interior design program through their foundation.

Western will use the money to buy new technology, upgrade equipment and support staff for the next three years.

“They can also move their offices around as appropriate for the business at hand,” said Jennifer Stangl, interior design program director. “We also have a collaborative space.

The Joyce Wanek Center for Art and Design is on the third floor of Western’s Integrated Technology Center.
