Four years ago James Young suffered through a tragic, life-threatening accident when he lost his arm and leg after falling in between two train carriages. The subsequent days were a dark time for Young, but he sought solace through a true passion of his--gaming. Young would play his Playstation 4 using his right arm and teeth in a feat of true dedication.

As fate would have it, Konami eventually featured an ad calling upon all interested gamer amputees to enter a raffle of sorts, in which the selected applicant would receive a prosthetic inspired by Konami's Metal Gear Solid. Young was fortunate enough to be selected, and even offer up his two-cents on the prosthetic's design.

The carbon-fiber limb is controlled by muscle signals from Young. He can shake hands, lift groceries, and pick up small objects like coins. Young has already taken the initiative to start up his own fundraising campaign, with hopes to further improve upon the technology for future users (an example being the arm weighs 10 lb, requires harness and gel, and can't be worn all day).

Here's the developer, Nate's description of the game:

Pokémon Apex is developed with an adult Pokémon fan in mind. The game contains some adult dialogue (some swearing) and themes (death, abandonment), and some minor horror elements. Furthermore, the game is intended to be somewhat difficult, meaning that you will need to think about your strategies and make conscientious choices about your team in order to progress. Playing through the game haphazardly will get you into trouble.

Also, this game is for people who prefer to take their time in games to explore their environment and uncover hidden details. There are lots of small details hidden throughout the game, as well as secret areas and items that reward meticulous players.

The game's still in development, but you can download it over here to try it out!

All the harpoons. New monsters. Stacks on stacks of new armor. And of course, predictably challenging choices. Bethesda's biggest DLC yet promises to bring a little bit of everything to the party, and my body couldn't be more ready. This guy's pretty amped too, I guess.

Some of the key things pointed out in their new Far Harbor exploration video that stuck out to me while watching and generally trying to keep my sh*t together in maddening anticipation:

-Bethesda claims this is the biggest landmass they’ve created yet for a DLC. The island also gathers some cues from the Glowing Sea (so a lot of radiation exposure’s about to go down..). -- Never forget the 'Glowing Sea of  Nope'!

-Central conflict takes place between the townspeople of Far Harbor, Children of Atom, and the Synths.

-Bethesda’s trying to build upon the ‘New England vibe’ in that of Fallout 4, which explains the Maine setting and characters that get by on fishing.

-Some of those newly mentioned weapons include fish hooks, harpoon guns, and hunting rifles, along with a new combat armor which Bethesda’s openly claimed is the ‘best armor out there’ excluding Power Armor (of course…).

-There’s a new batch of demented creatures based off anglers, Mirelurks, and salamanders.

-The DLC really aims to pick apart what unites the Children of Atom.

-Endings vary based on your ultimate decision in faction(s).

-Fog plays a huge role in this DLC. Monsters use it as an attack aid, and the people of Far Harbor must continually keep it at bay to ensure their livelihood.

-Lastly, the return of settlements…your relations with factions serves to dictate which lands you can lay claim to.

In closing here, lead designer William Shen said the following on what Bethesda’s aiming for with the DLC, and its factions:

Everyone has a sympathetic side, and a side that’s not-so-sympathetic, and you have to decide where you’re going to land. We wanted to include a ton of different options. Is it possible to go through with no one dying? Can you just decide to destroy everyone?

Can you bring certain people to justice and drag out certain truths? Is it worth exposing this person if it means all these other people are going to be hurt? We give you a lot of tools and information that affects all groups, and then you have the ability to decide what you’re going to do with it.”

Kojima pretty much blew minds worldwide when he offered up the first full-body look at Ludens on Twitter today. Kojima describes Luden as the 'icon of Kojima Productions' and that Ludens sports an 'extra-vehicular activity (EVA) creative suit'.

"We'll deliver THE NEW PLAY in THE NEW FUTURE with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit," Kojima said when talking about his studio's goals on Twitter earlier.

Here's a bigger yet look at Ludens:
