Enter the Gungeons Gun Puns Are A Blast on Nintendo Switch

first_imgStay on target It seems fitting that one of the last games I write about in this otherwise great year is a roguelike. Despite my distaste for the genre’s obsession with permadeath and randomized levels, the fact that so many interesting indie games use this formula means I still have to put up with it to keep a pulse on the scene. This has become even more true as more and more roguelike indie hits land on Nintendo Switch.Today’s roguelike indie hit? The fracas of firearms that is Enter the Gungeon. Once again, this isn’t the game to make me enjoy roguelikes. But its infectious style and nimble bullet ballet shine regardless.If you thought Enter the Gungeon’s name (and kick ass theme song) alone is a great pun, boy are you going to enjoy soaking in all the lore this (fictional) gun-worshipping world has to offer. Players enter deeper chambers of the titular keep to find a legendary gun that can kill the past. You do battle with bullet-based bosses like heavily armed bird Gatling Gull or the Lead Lord. New guns you find get added to the Ammonimicon tome. The combination of hellish religious fervor and breakneck brutal gunplay gives the game an almost Doom vibe, and I am here for it.The charming retro graphics also do a lot to sell this literal bullet hell. UI elements like your health and the reset clock are made out of bullets. Low-level “Gundead” enemies are cute walking shell casings. Your tutorial gun in an actual pea shooter. Different character classes are pixelated parodies of classic shooter heroes archetypes like space marines or treasure hunters. The parody aspect of the presentation does a lot to keep the game funny and ridiculous and entertaining, not some kind of gross NRA masturbatory Second Amendment fantasy.Naturally, all that gun garnish is in service of gameplay entirely about shooting. There are some surface level similarities between Enter the Gungeon and The Binding of Isaac seeing as they both roguelikes that play like top-down shooters. But Gungeon’s sophisticated mechanics make it feel more like a shrunken down version of a modern console shooter instead of yet another homage to Smash TV.Players weave between big and visible yet fast and relentless projectiles while returning fire. You always have a basic gun with unlimited ammo but to make real progress you’ll have to manage limited but better random guns you find along the way like shotguns and crossbows and laser cannons and light guns. You can aim in all directions but always need to eventually reload, so your shooting needs to be fast but purposefully timed. The game even lets you prioritize speed and performance over graphical quality in video settings, which is a strange inclusion for what doesn’t seem to be a technically demanding retro-looking game.The defensive options also manage to add to the aggressive, action movie nature of the combat. Players can pull off a slick little diving dodge roll move (the name of the developer is Dodge Roll) to leap past walls of bullets unscathed. It’s the only solution when you’re backed in a corner and need to deal with a giant whose sword slashes bullets. Or when you’re really desperate you can use finite blanks to briefly wipe all bullets from the screen.The game takes advantage of its randomized nature as well by letting players adapt to their specific environments in cool ways. Beyond just learning the overall level layout and teleporter shortcut network, players can turn a room itself into a weapon. Blow up barrels for splash damage. Shoot down chandeliers like it’s The Phantom of the Opera. Kick over a table to use as quick cover. Strategies can get even crazier in two-player co-op, although I wasn’t a fan of the tilt controls for single Joy-Con play.That all sounds awesome, and I found Enter the Gungeon’s moment to moment gameplay to be intensely satisfying. Unfortunately, I also found it to be another set of promising mechanics needlessly saddled with a roguelike formula. I just don’t think the game gains anything of value by being this difficult, this willing to wipe your progress on a whim, and this uninterested in crafting cool specific levels to tackle. I just can’t care enough to buy the best loot at the shop, learn boss patterns, or even give it my all during any particularly run when it’s inevitably all for naught. At best, roguelikes should be cool endless bonus modes, not the entire experience.Enter the Gungeon is an awesome little shooter with a heaping hilarious helping of great gun mysticism. And if you like roguelikes obviously you’ll get more from it than I did. But here’s hoping that next year’s promising Nintendo Switch indie games keep the cool controls and intriguing ideas but ditch the pointless permadeath.Buy it now!Super Mario OdysseyThe Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildNintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesView as: One Page Slides1/51.

Beggarfree Dhaka still a utopia

first_imgIn this photo taken recently, 70-year old Abu Bakkar is seen begging on the footpath near Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel. Photo: Imam HossainA Dhaka city free from ‘nuisance’ of beggars is not a myth! Visibly invisible, the concept lives in political rhetoric and sometimes on paper, in a country where one-fourth of the population is statistically called poor.Only on 9 May, state minister for social welfare Nuruzzaman Ahmed told parliament that three zones of Dhaka city were made free of beggars.The zones are: Zone-I: Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport and Radisson Blu Water Garden Hotel, zone-II: diplomatic zone, and zone III: Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel, InterContinental Dhaka and Bailey Road.Beggars, however, are often seen everywhere in these three zones. In most places, the beggars do not even know that begging is banned there.Abu Bakkar from Pabna begs for money in front of Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel. He came to Dhaka around two months ago targeting Shab-e-Barat and the fasting month of Ramadan.The 70-year-old man, who earns around Tk 500 to 700 every day in this capital, does not know that he cannot beg money in the three zones.“No one told me about that,” Abu Bakkar said with a puzzled look. “I roam around begging from Panthapath to Shahbagh. No policemen or security guards disturb me while begging,” he added.According to the social welfare ministry’s data, there are around 100,000 beggars in Dhaka city.In this photo taken on 18 May, disabled Mostafa is seen begging on Gulshan Lake Bridge near Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Gulshan diplomatic zone. Photo: Fajlay Rabbi RaazA member of Bangladesh Ansar, Shamim Sardar, has been working as a security officer for InterContinental Dhaka hotel for the past five months.“We work here in front of the hotel round the clock. Beggars can easily be seen here and in front of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) and BIRDEM.’’Asked if he knew that the area has been declared beggar-free, Shamim shook his head in the negative.“I don’t know about this, nor even have I seen any police driving beggars away from in front of the hotel,” he said.Seen in front of SAARC Fountain signal, Zarina Begum was sitting on the pavement with her two-year old daughter, Andhari. Asked if she knows that the footpath where she is begging has been declared beggar-free, she replied she is not a beggar, rather she is a street vendor and sells cigarettes on foot.“I’m not a beggar. I have sold all my cigarette packs today and now I’m just sitting idly beside the road. But, I don’t mind if anyone helps me financially,’’ she said.Just a few yards away, a limping Tofazzal Hossain was leaning on a crutch and begging. Tofazzal, who lost one of his legs in a train accident, is from Rangpur but now lives in an Azimpur slum.His three sons are rickshaw pullers and auto-rickshaw drivers. He also has two daughters.“After much difficulty, I could marry off my daughters. My sons are not well established enough to support us. And this is why I have been begging.’’In this photo taken recently, Zarina Begum and her daughter Andhari are seen sitting on the footpath near Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel. Photo: Imam HossainWhen asked if he knows this area has been declared beggar-free, “I know begging for money is legal in Dhaka city. There is no bar. No one has told me anything about this.”Begging, however, is a punishable offence according to existing laws of the country. The minimum punishment for begging is three years in prison and the maximum is seven years, to be doubled for a repetition.Mahfuz (pseudonym), a police constable, attached with Bangladesh Police Lines, deployed in front of Sonargaon hotel, told Prothom Alo, “I don’t know if this place has been declared beggar-free. We often see beggars signalling cars for money. We have not been instructed to look after this. Our duty is to keep the footpath moving so that no one can stand still in front of the hotel.”Only a few metres away, a beggar couple started knocking on the car windows, especially to the expensive cars.One of them is blind.When approached with the same question, they gave Prothom Alo the same reply, “We don’t know that we can’t beg here.”A pedestrian, Hassan Zakaria, said that there was a billboard reading, ‘beggar-free area’ on the island just in front of the Sonargaon hotel. “But, it has been removed a few months ago,” he added.A lame man was found begging for money on the Gulshan Lake Bridge near Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Dhaka on Friday. His name is Mostafa.When approached, Mostafa said he is begging for money with the fear of being evicted as policemen often drive them away from the diplomatic zones in the capital. Despite the fact, he was begging there as both locals and foreigners have a tendency to donate money here.“I know this place has been declared beggar-free as police evicted me twice. Despite that, I sit here to beg as I can earn more here,’’A housewife who lives in Gulshan-2 told Prothom Alo, “Beggars here in posh areas are very smart. Sometimes, they ask for money, especially dollars, from foreigners in English. And sometimes, they will come to your car window and say that they left begging and have become street vendors. And so, you must help them financially. Isn’t this begging too?” In spite of beggars’ presence in all three ‘beggar-free zones’, ruling party leaders and ministers talk tall of having beggar-free Dhaka, and sometimes beggar-free Bangladesh. In this photo taken recently, limping Tofazzal Hossain is seen begging on the footpath near Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel. Photo: Imam HossainState minister Nuruzzaman Ahmed said that the country would have no beggars by 2018 as the prime minister announced that beggars would be rehabilitated and job opportunities would be created for them.On 17 March, prime minister Sheikh Hasina mentioned that necessary measures had been taken to make every district free from beggars.Just a few days later on 29 March, finance minister AMA Muhith told a programme, “Begging will completely be rooted out once the Sheikh Hasina-led government comes back to power.”Earlier in mid 2013, the government said it had decided to clear beggars from some locations in the capital including Shahjalal International Airport area, Bailey Road, the diplomatic zone and places surrounding the embassies, and the Sonargaon, Ruposhi Bangla and Radisson hotels.The government took a number of projects to rehabilitate the beggars but these do not seem to have been so successful.According to social welfare ministry officials, the government’s experience of rehabilitating beggars is not pleasant as the beggars simply return to begging just a few months after being rehabilitated.And so, the vision of a beggar-free Dhaka remains a distant dream.last_img read more

All We Ever Wanted Stories of a Better World

first_img We all strive to build a better world in any way we can. The smallest things can make the difference, even if we don’t think it’s enough. For Matt Miner and Eric Palicki, they strive to help just that bit. They push us into that better world with their new gorgeous anthology called All We Ever Wanted: Stories of A Better World.This full-color comics anthology is filled with 25+ stories from incredible creators that will build not only our future but the future of comics as well. We had the opportunity to talk Matt and Eric about their the better world they want to build, their inspiration behind the anthology and more.Thank you guys so much for talking with Geek about this stellar anthology. Can you guys tell our readers a little bit about All We Ever Wanted: Stories of A Better World?Matt: It’s an anthology full of stories told against the backdrop of a better future. So, think more Star Trek and less Mad Max – more “San Junipero” Black Mirror and less every other Black Mirror. We asked a metric ton of massively talented artist and writer friends if they wanted to be part and boom, we have a book that’s turning out amazing. We hope it’s a bright spot in an ocean of dark and dreary dystopian future fiction.Eric: Just to get in front of a big misconception, “a better future” doesn’t mean one free of conflict. Matt’s comparison to Star Trek is a good one: life on Earth is pretty great by the time of The Federation. That doesn’t mean you can’t find danger and crises lurking out in the vastness of space.“Everything I Own” by Lela Gwenn, Tony Gregori, and Josh JensenWhat’s the process like in putting a big anthology like this together? You’ve had killer success with This Nightmare Kills Fascists (which is also very stellar). Were you guys nervous about embarking on another Kickstarter together or was it “no guts, no glory”?Eric: Matt and I made a decision not to repeat any creators from TNKF here. First, we didn’t want to play favorites. Given the consistent quality of This Nightmare Kills Fascists, how could we invite some contributors but not all? Second, this speaks to the depth of talent among our friends and peers, including so many writers and artists I was eager to work with but whom we just couldn’t fit into TNKF. I’m particularly stoked to be collaborating on my story for AWEW with Eryk Donovan, whom I’ve wanted to work with for years.As for nervousness, I don’t think so. Matt and my combined history with Kickstarter is fairly positive. We’re partnered with a seasoned publisher in A Wave Blue World, and this creative lineup is a slam dunk.Matt: Thanks for the kind words. Eric and I kind of got tired of being told “no” by publishers when we just want to make comics. We decided to start doing these anthologies so we’d always have something cool in the works no matter how mean and rejection-ey publishers are being.What inspired you both to create All We Ever Wanted? Was it just in hopes to one day gain better world and understanding? Or something more? What do you want backers, readers and more to take from this anthology?Matt: Looking around at the state of the world, and of the US specifically, I find myself pretty down about where we are. We came so far, and now we’re slipping backward and it just kills me. I mean, we finally legalized same-sex marriage, and suddenly we have actual literal Nazis in the streets and I just can’t. I can’t.With All We Ever Wanted, I hoped to capture that sense of hope I’d get watching shows like Star Trek: The Next Generation. Like, there’s conflict and drama and lasers and fights. But, overall, things are much better, and people treat each other with kindness and respect. I hope readers find that same sense of comfort and peace reading this anthology.Eric: The original working title was “The Future is Unwritten,” a phrase credited to my favorite band, The Clash, and to Joe Strummer. I think it’s a perfect encapsulation of what the book means to me. This Nightmare Kills Fascists was intended to show all the scary places the world was headed — and the real world looked at our stories in TNKF and promptly uttered “Hold my beer” — so All We Ever Wanted is Intended to show how great the future could be if we get our heads out of our asses.“Owning up to the Past” by James Maddox, Gavin Smith, and Nick WentlandYou guys have a gorgeous and brilliant line-up of creators from all walks of comics. How was it working with each of the creators? Is it hard to juggle all the creators as just editors? Can you tell us a little bit about some of the stories they’ll bring to the anthology?Matt: With This Nightmare Kills Fascists, Eric and I took a crash course on managing anthology project. So, this time around we’re much more organized and better prepared for everything. It means keeping detailed spreadsheets with deadlines and contact info and where each project is in the stage of completion. Luckily my years and years of office work taught me how to track boring stuff in cells on a computer screen. We’re in good shape there.All the creators in the book are friends of myself, Eric, Tyler from A Wave Blue World, or all three of us. So it’s a very cool, smooth sailing kind of operation where folks are just stoked to be part of this really cool book.Eric: My confidence as an editor has grown since TNKF. I’ve gotten better at collaborating with the creators to make their stories, rather than just taking for granted that everything is perfect from the first draft. To my surprise and delight, our collaborators have been extremely receptive. We all agree the finished product will be better for it.I would have trouble choosing any one story to highlight. Lela Gwenn’s story with Tony Gregori, about reconnecting with humanity in the wake of Armageddon. Kay Honda’s story with Liana Kangas, about how A.I. will change relationship dynamics in the future, is just a couple scripts that stuck with me long after I first read them. Eliot Rahal just turned in an incredibly sweet story of a girl and her robot that will be drawn by Jason Copland.“The Pilot” by Dean TrippeWhat would your ideal “better world” involve? It can be serious, funny or a little mix of in-between. Matt: Truly, my “better world” is a much simpler world with a whole lot fewer people, a whole lot less prejudice, and a healthy respect for animals and the planet. Oh, and dogs. Tons and tons of dogs. It’d be cool if they could talk, too. Talking dogs. Maybe they form little dog street gangs based on their dominant breeds? Or maybe just tons of regular dogs.Eric: The great aspect of this theme is that everyone has a different vision of a better world. Mine differs from Matt’s. In that, I hope we lean more heavily into our technological advancements as a way of solving problems. Other than “how can I more efficiently kill my enemies?” which is how it seems to go most often. We’re *this close* to curing cancer and eliminating our dependence on fossil fuels and feeding the hungry. If only we gave those worthy goals the kind of resources normally reserved for building more efficient bombs.Can you let our readers know where to find you via social media? Besides All We Ever Wanted, do you guys have any other projects we should look out for?Matt: I’m at @MattMinerXVX on Twitter, and my other links are over on my website at mattminerxvx.com. I have a punk rock slasher horror comic with artist Clay McCormack out with Waxwork Comics titled POSER – it’s only available through the waxworkrecords.com website right now and comes with a siiiiick 7” record, but will be solicited to Diamond in July as a version without the record. I also have some new stuff happening with Black Mask very soon and some more super crazy band collaborations in the works!Eric: I’m @epalicki on Twitter, @Thepalicki on Instagram, and I maintain a website (badly) at ericpalicki.com. My last Black Mask series, NO ANGEL, will be collected in trade in the fall, and then I’ll be appearing in a number of anthologies over the next several months, before rolling out two new creator-owned series in early 2019.All We Ever Wanted: Stories of A Better World carries ace comic talents from all across such as Tyler Chin-Tanner, Robbi Rodriquez, Lucia Fasano, Tess Fowler, Alisa Kwitney, Mauricet, Kay Honda, Liana Kangas, and much more. This anthology also gives backers fantastic rewards such as signed bookplates by Marie Enger, book packs including Matt Miner’s Poser and Eric Palicki’s No Angel and Fake Empire. If you missed out on The Nightmare Kills Fascists, here’s your chance to get both anthologies in one!Check out All We Ever Wanted: Stories of A Better World today on Kickstarter.

Go back to the enewsletter

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter Go back to the e-newsletterInternational luxury travel agency network Virtuoso kicked off its Virtuoso Travel Week (VTW) in Las Vegas and, while the event itself has been going 28 years strong, this year marks the 30th anniversary of luxury travel’s premier network.VTW – an event akin to Fashion Week where travel buyers seek out the latest in luxury experiences by meeting with thousands of travel purveyors, all network partners – reached new heights this year.With nine per cent growth in attendance, a record-breaking 5257 travel professionals from 98 countries congregated at Bellagio Resort & Casino, ARIA Resort & Casino and Vdara Hotel & Spa in Las Vegas, where they conducted a staggering number of one-to-one meetings – over 320,000 of them, totalling more than 1.5 million meeting minutes or the equivalent of 2.9 years.The end goal for this global gathering: building relationships that lead to better traveller experiences.A message from Matthew D. UpchurchDuring the event’s Opening Ceremony, Virtuoso Chairman and CEO Matthew D. Upchurch recalled his philosophy that led to the creation of Virtuoso: a firm belief that travel agencies and suppliers need each other to be successful and that Virtuoso’s function is to facilitate this success by creating tools and services that support each side.Ultimately, though, Virtuoso’s role is about fostering human connections. “Thirty years ago I brought together Allied Travel and Percival Tours to create a vibrant, resilient global travel network focused not solely on transactions, but on catalysing rich human experiences,” said Upchurch.Drawing upon the message shared by the event’s keynote speaker, ‘Grit to Great’ author and head of one of the leading advertising agencies in America, Linda Kaplan Thaler, Upchurch spoke about the scenario that is helping propel success for its travel agency members: the desire for authentic human connections in a world plagued with volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA).Upchurch continued, “In an exponentially changing environment, we don’t offer a rulebook. We believe in principles, not protocols. And we have four guiding principles we believe will anchor our future: ensure success for our agency members, make it personal for both our partners and their clients, pioneer and innovate, and tell the advisor story again and again.last_img read more

This image released by Disney shows Michael B Jor

first_img This image released by Disney shows Michael B. Jordan in a scene from Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther.” (Marvel Studios-Disney via AP) by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Jan 17, 2019 8:54 am PDT NEW YORK — By its nature, awards season tends to winnow a field of films and performances until many of the same names are read week after week, award show after award show, leading up to the Academy Awards. It’s a process that always leaves deserving nominees left out for lack of buzz, awareness or box office.When the Oscar nominations are announced Tuesday, there will surely be much to celebrate and a handful of surprises. But it will inevitably, necessarily be a reductive list that omits many of the high points of what was an awfully good year for movies.This year, much of the love has been heaped on the likes of “A Star Is Born,” ”Roma,” ”Green Book” and “The Favourite.” There have been occasional, inspired attempts to upend the march to the Oscars, or at least pause for reconsideration. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, in a much praised selection, picked Debra Granick (“Leave No Trace”) for best director when few had her (or, notably, any other woman) in “the mix.” The National Society of Film Critics went back to an acclaimed if little seen April release, Chloe Zhao’s “The Rider,” for its best picture winner.The movies of 2018 were simply too good and too multitudinous to be filed neatly into a steady drumbeat of favourites. Here are just a few of the performers, filmmakers and films that almost certainly won’t be among the names read on Tuesday, but who warrant it as much as any other nominee.BEST ACTRESSKathryn Hahn, “Private Life”Amandla Stenberg, “The Hate U Give”Joanna Kulig, “Cold War”Regina Hall, “Support the Girls”Toni Collette, “Hereditary”It is easily, overwhelmingly, the most crowded category of the year, and this bunch STILL leaves out unforgettable performances by Elsie Fisher (“Eighth Grade”), Carey Mulligan (“Wildlife”), Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”) and Juliette Binoche (“Let the Sunshine In”). Yet these five all seem to be on the outside of the Lady Gaga/Olivia Colman/Glenn Close favourites despite work that was at turns staggeringly ravishing (Kulig), deeply personal and preternaturally poised (Stenberg, in a star-making performance), insanely committed (Collette), comically but forcefully poignant (Hall) and flat-out human (Hahn).BEST ACTORLakeith Stanfield, “Sorry to Bother You”Joaquin Phoenix, “You Were Never Really Here”John C. Reilly, “Stan & Ollie”Brady Jandreau, “The Rider”Lucas Hedges, “Ben Is Back”The most subtle and sweet performances by leading men came in more adventurous, less show-stopping roles than the likes of Rami Malek’s Freddie Mercury and Bradley Cooper’s Jackson Maine. Stanfield is the unflappable centre to the wild surrealism of “Sorry to Bother You.” Phoenix, twitchy and haunted, cuts like a knife through Lynne Ramsay’s deconstructed revenge thriller. Reilly, a standout also in “The Sisters Brothers,” gives a wonderfully sensitive performance as Oliver Hardy in “Stan & Ollie.” Jandreau, a Lakota cowboy, doesn’t get his due for his magnetic performance in “The Rider” since much of it was based on his life. But that takes nothing away from its honesty. And few actors were more exciting and indispensable in 2018 than the quickly maturing Hedges, whose many strong performances including his recovering addict in “Ben Is Back.”BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESSJun Jong-seo, “Burning”Sissy Spacek, “The Old Man & the Gun”Zoe Kazan, “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”Elizabeth Debicki, “Widows”Natalie Portman, “Vox Lux”The only thing standing in the way of a litany of awards for Jun Jong-seo’s aching, sorrowful performance in Chang-dong Lee’s masterly psychological thriller “Burning” is celebrity (it’s her first film) and language (since foreign films rarely get much recognition in acting categories). “The Old Man & the Gun” might be remembered for Robert Redford’s final performance, but it’s when he’s on screen with the ever-glowing Spacek that the movie lights up.BEST SUPPORING ACTORBrian Tyree Henry, “If Beale Street Could Talk”Hugh Grant, “Paddington 2”Michael B. Jordan, “Black Panther”Russell Hornsby, “The Hate U Give”Josh Hamilton, “Eighth Grade”Henry only has a few scenes in “If Beale Street Could Talk,” but they were among the most beautiful and tender of the year. (Michael Shannon had about the same screen time in 2008’s “Revolutionary Road” and still earned a deserved Oscar nomination.) As a desperately down-on-his-luck actor in “Paddington 2,” Hugh Grant gave the most delightful performance of the year (though his co-star Brendan Gleeson, as a prison chef, was close). And it’s impossible to separate the greatness of Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther” from the tormented performance of Michael B. Jordan. He’s the movie’s anguished heart.BEST DIRECORChloe Zhao, “The Rider”Joel and Ethan Coen, “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”Frederick Wiseman, “Monrovia, Indiana”Lucrecia Martel, “Zama”Pawel Pawlikowski, “Cold War”None of these films could have been made — or even attempted — by anyone else: the soulful melancholy of Zhao’s vividly naturalistic “The Rider”; the delirious splendor of Lucrecia Martel’s hypnotic adaptation; the Coen brothers’ audacious anthology of six Western morality tales; Wiseman’s sharp and patient portrait of small-town America; and Pawlikowski’s gorgeous, devastatingly concise ill-fated romance.BEST PICTURE“The Death of Stalin”“First Reformed”“Burning”“Spider-man: Into the Spider Verse”“Private Life”These are many others, too, that deserve to be remembered. Everyone could, and should, have their own picks. To paraphrase Lady Gaga, it was a far from shallow year at the movies.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAPJake Coyle, The Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email And the nominees won’t be (but should be) …last_img read more

the Olympics Sindhu lost to Carolina Marin of Spain in a hard fought battle and eventually had to settle for silver Malik clinched bronze in the wrestling event only to etch her name as the fourth Indian woman to win a medal at the Olympics PM Modi also said that the Indian participants in other events like hockey shooting and boxing performed well “But my countrymen we need to do a lot more But if we continue doing what we have been doing then perhaps we will again be disappointed” he said Modi mentioned about the thousands of messages sent to him from people who wanted him to speak on

overturned a five-shot overnight deficit with a sublime final round of four-under-67 (Source: PTI) Top News For the first time in nearly three years Gaganjeet Bhullar played a rare round without feeling pain in his wrist It ended with a smile And a trophy The week before in Osaka the vexatious pain in his left wrist resulted in him missing the cut at the Asia-Pacific Diamond Cup – the sixth time he failed to play on the weekend this year So Bhullar’s sole target when he landed in Incheon was to last the entire week let alone winning the title But with the heavy rain pelting down on the Bear’s Best Cheongna Golf Club the 28-year-old emerged as the most unlikely winner of the Shinhan Donghae Open to end his three-year title drought “Two years 10 months and one day” he reminds you “It’s been a hard frustrating wait Every day of it” When he lined up at the first tee on Sunday morning the thought of competing for the title did not even cross his mind Bhullar was five shots behind overnight leader Thailand’s Thitiphun Chuayprakong and three behind home favourite Taewoo Kim Sundays in golf have produced some memorable come-back-from-the-dead stories But Bhullar wasn’t naive to believe that he stood a chance to lift the trophy For that two things had to happen – to erase the five-shot deficit he needed to have a near-flawless round coupled with Thitiphun having a disastrous one So Bhullar went about his business as usual content making the cut and pushing for a high finish on the leaderboard Playing without any burden he birdied the sixth seventh (a sublime 15-foot putt) 10th 12th 13th and 14 holes Bhullar was unaware all the while that Thitiphun playing in the leader group ahead of him was crumbling Waiting for his turn on the 15th tee he glanced at the leaderboard for the first time “That’s when I realised I was in the lead Before the 14th hole I didn’t even know I stood a chance to win” he says still sounding surprised He had a three-shot lead with just four holes left to play There was some late twist when he bogeyed the 16th and 17th but fortunately for Bhullar it wouldn’t end in a heartbreak He hung on to par the 18th to claim his first title since winning the Indonesian Open in 2013 “It wasn’t easy It was raining all the time and got heavier on the back nine But I kept my cool used my past experience” he says “This win means a lot to me I’ve gone through one of the lowest phases of my career” Lowest phase The title comes at a crucial stage in Bhullar’s career When he won the Indonesia President Invitational as a 21-year-old in 2009 Bhullar was seen as the next big thing in Indian golf; the man who would continue the march propelled by the generation before him the likes of Jeev Milkha Singh Arjun Atwal and Jyoti Randhawa He walked the talk winning six international titles between 2009 and 2013 Then his wrist acted up In October 2014 tore a ligament in his left wrist which kept him out of action till January 2015 “It was an extremely frustrating phase Not easy at all You just sit at home do nothing watch your friends competing in tournaments play golf… it wasn’t easy Even when I started practicing I struggled in tournament play” he says Bhullar returned in early 2015 but the injury continued to bother him It severely affected his short game (chips and putts) and the lingering fear of the pain resurfacing showed in his performances Last year he managed just one top 10 finish (and missed the cut in five out of the six tournaments he played in after returning from injury) This year too he had just one top 10 finish in the 12 tournaments on Asian Tour before the Shinhan Donghae Open It resulted in him losing his credentials to play on the European Tour and his world ranking was on a freefall “I had to do a lot of strengthening exercises – basic stuff in the gym But the wrist pains even now Last week it was hurting This week it was fine” he says At the start of the tournament maybe Bhullar would’ve been content if you’d have told him it would be four days without any pain in the wrist In the larger scheme of things the title though significant seems incidental “Also a huge confidence booster This result is a huge psychological relief Takes a away a lot of doubts and gives a reassurance that the wrist is fine I can focus on my game more now” says Bhullar who is the first Indian since Jeev in 1994 to win this title The title which earns him a prize money of $194400 also helps Bhullar jump 51 places in Asian Order of Merit to be placed at 10th His world ranking which is an abysmal 674 at the moment too is likely to move up considerably when its released on Monday “Getting the European Tour card is the next big target since the win here has given a winners status and the five-year exemption” he says “And also be more consistent; remain in contention I don’t want to wait this long for my next title” NUMBERS 7 –?it?
