Here’s A Proper Look At A Mission In Anthem

https://kinja.com/ajax/inset/iframe?id=youtube-video-p-nKttWT7JM&start=0

At E3 last month, publisher Electronic Arts showed an abridged version of Anthem, saving the full demo for behind closed doors. Now you can finally see it all.

BioWare’s upcoming online shooter, which comes out February 22 for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, feels great to play. You probably can’t discern that from this new 20-minute video, unless you plug a controller into your computer and play pretend, but at least you can get a proper look at what missions will be like. There’s no real sense of how the story will look—or how Anthem will avoid many of the narrative pitfalls that Destiny walked into—but hey, they’ve got time.

Huawei’s TalkBand B5 leak confirms the company is still trying to fit a Bluetooth headset into a watch

Pictures of Huawei’s upcoming TalkBand B5 have leaked, confirming that once again, the company is trying to sell folks on the concept pioneered with the original TalkBand B1 back in 2014: a wearable that combines smart watch features with a pop-out Bluetooth headset in a single device.

The leak, via the ever reliable Evan Blass on Twitter, doesn’t reveal much about the upcoming device. But given that the previous model, the TalkBand B3, was released back in 2016, presumably Huawei has made some improvements on the device, even if the design appears to be virtually identical at first glance.

But as fun as the idea of the Bluetooth-headset-storing…

Watch 20 minutes of BioWare’s Anthem in action

At E3 last month, attendees were able to get their first real hands-on time with Anthem, the new sci-fi action game from Mass Effect studio BioWare. For those who weren’t in attendance, the developer has just released a lengthy, 20-minute-long video showcasing just what was in the demo. You can get a good look at how the co-operative missions work, as well as a glimpse at the slick jetpack-fuelled action. There are also a lot of space bugs.

The one thing the video doesn’t show, though — and it’s something that remains somewhat of a mystery — is how that action will tie into the story aspect of the game. According to BioWare, the co-op missions and the more straightforward narrative will be largely separate, offering two very different…

Blob of liquid floating in zero gravity

From NASA Johnson: “Astronauts on the International Space Station dissolved an effervescent tablet in a floating ball of water, and captured images using a camera capable of recording four times the resolution of normal high-definition cameras. The higher resolution images and higher frame rate videos can reveal more information when used on science investigations, giving researchers a valuable new tool aboard the space station. This footage is one of the first of its kind. The cameras are being evaluated for capturing science data and vehicle operations by engineers at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.”
