Monster Hunter World is getting a huge expansion on September 6 in the form of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. This DLC will contain a snow-covered region filled with new and returning beasts. The expansion introduces new traversal and attacking mechanics. Each of the 14 existing weapons receive additional moves. Capcom released the first public beta over the weekend through PlayStation Plus. Though relatively short, the Iceborne demo gave players a good taste of what to expect.The demo kicked off with the character creator. Unlike the main game, there were very few customization options. Instead, you could only pick one of six male or female hunters and palico archetypes. There were only a few armor types to choose from, but all of the weapons were available. The demo gave players just enough to get them going, though I would have loved to use the character from my main game. Considering how this is a separate demo, I couldn’t complain too much.The Iceborne beta offered players three different missions of varying difficulty: Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. Beginner took place within the main game’s Ancient Forest and tasked players with slaying a Great Jagras. If you played Monster Hunter World, you’ll know this is effectively the introductory monster. Though the mission seemed out of place for the Iceborne demo, its inclusion actually made sense. Being that this demo was available to anyone — including those who may not own MHW — it’s good it had a tutorial mission. Also, folks like me who may not have played MHW in months needed a refresher course. You get items that transfer over to Iceborne proper, so the Beginner mission was anything but a waste.The next two missions took place in the new area: Hoarfrost Reach. The first monster players faced is a new to Iceborne: Banbaro. This creature is cool because it is so different from the reptilian monsters one typically faces in MHW. Banbaro is essentially a ram crossed with a moose (with a large tail added for good measure). It uses its massive horns to attack players either with direct attacks or by hurling boulders and trees. Banbaro’s is surprisingly fast for its size and will overwhelm unprepared players.Monster Hunter veterans no doubt recognized the Expert-level creature: Trigrex. Though Tigrex is a returning monster, this is its MHW debut. As its name implies, this monster is a cross between a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a tiger. It was by far the nastiest beast in the demo. Tigrex can cover great distances by running or leaping across the land. Even when severely injured, Tigrex pummels players with relentless attacks. It is not a joke.Though not a monster you had to slay, Hoarfrost Reach is also home to the Beotodus. This monster is similar to Lavasioth and Jyuratodus from MHW. It swims underneath the ice and loves to attack unsuspecting hunters from below. There was not a single instance when fighting either Banbaro or Tigrex where Beotodus didn’t throw itself into the mix. Usually, this resulted in it getting owned by the two more powerful monsters. I wish we could have hunted Beotodus during an official hunt, but I can’t complain too much since it isn’t exactly a new monster type.It is tough for me to decide which of the new monsters I enjoyed fighting more. Banbaros is fun simply because it is a brand new monster that looks and behaves differently. On the other hand, Tigrex provided more of a rush because of its brutality. In the end, I’ll say I enjoyed both monsters equally because they provided such divergent experiences. The final expansion will contain even more creatures, which I’m looking forward to seeing.When Capcom said Hoarfrost Reach is unlike any other MHW location, it was not kidding. This winter wonderland contains snow-covered forests, expansive ice lakes, and deep frozen caverns. Before heading out, we had to consume a Hot Drink in order to prevent the cold from weakening our characters. Waist deep snow isn’t harmful, but it does affect agility. As you can imagine, this is a huge detriment when fighting fast monsters. The added environmental hazards instantly make Hoarfrost interesting because you need to have spatial awareness while contending with nasty monsters. The twenty minute time limit to complete a hunt didn’t give players a chance to fully explore the environment, which is disappointing. But I suppose that just gives us something else to anticipate in the full DLC.Hoarfrost Reach is huge and traversing it drains your stamina over time. Thankfully, you can get around by riding smaller monsters like Jagras or Wulg. You do this by opening up the item bar and selecting Raider Ride. Afterwards, a creature appears and takes you to a spot selected on the map. Technically, you can still fast travel to previously unlocked camps to get around quickly. But if you can ride an awesome monster, why not do that instead?Clutch Claw is the big new mechanic of Iceborne. With it, you can latch onto
Caught on Camera: Copperhead Snakes Mate on Bike TrailRare Two-Headed Timber Rattlesnake Spotted in New Jersey An airline passenger left their pet snake at a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint at Newark Liberty International Airport, according to officials.The 15-inch snake, which had a thin black shape and a bright yellow band around the back of its neck, was found on the floor of the TSA checkpoint in Terminal C, said a TSA press release. A child spotted the snake and immediately notified a TSA officer about the reptile, which was slithering on the ground.A TSA officer gently placed a gray checkpoint bin over the snake to prevent it from escaping. Officials temporarily closed the checkpoint lane and told passengers to move to another lane to clear the area. Port Authority Police officers arrived at the scene and secured the serpent before taking it away from the terminal. Once the reptile was gone, TSA officials reopened the checkpoint lane.According to Tom Carter, TSA’s New Jersey federal security director, it’s very common for airport travelers to accidentally forget items, however, it’s rare that someone would abandon their pet snake at a TSA checkpoint area.“Typically people leave items such as their keys, sunglasses, ID, hats, and gloves, but this is the first time someone has left a snake behind,” Carter explained. “We have a fairly robust lost and found program that reunites passengers with their lost items, but this passenger doesn’t need to call us about his snake.”Someone left this snake at a @TSA checkpoint at @EWRairport last night. TSA has a good lost and found program to reunite travelers with items they’ve left at checkpoints, but if that was your snake, don’t bother calling to retrieve it. pic.twitter.com/qpvxRbRRZf— TSAmedia_LisaF (@TSAmedia_LisaF) August 20, 2019The snake may bring memories of the movie Snakes on a Plane, where an assassin left dangerous snakes on the loose and freaked out airline passengers and crew. But, don’t be alarmed: Ring-necked snakes, including the one caught at the terminal, are considered harmless creatures, according to University of Georgia’s Savannah River Ecology Laboratory.It’s unknown if the snake was reunited with its owner.Last month, a passenger was detained after TSA officials spotted what appeared to be a missile launcher in their checked bag. The unnamed passenger told authorities that he is an active military personnel, and that he was traveling home from Kuwait and wanted to keep the weapon as a souvenir. The missile launcher, which wasn’t live, was confiscated by the Maryland State Fire Marshal for safe disposal.Watch: Five Animals With Better Jobs Than YouMore on Geek.com:Watch: ‘Dancing’ Timber Rattlesnakes Discovered By Tennessee HikerWatch: ‘Fighting’ Male Pythons Spotted By Australian Snake CatcherSneaky Snake Causes Power Outage in Kentucky Neighborhood Stay on target

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two cases where middle school students were robbed last week as they walked home from school in the Five Corners area. The robberies happened about a half-mile apart from one another.A deputy with the sheriff’s office got two separate reports of boys being robbed on March 17; one of the victims was 11 years old and the other was 12. Each report involved a male who pointed or flashed a firearm at the victim, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.The first reported robbery happened in the 10100 block of Northeast 72nd Street. The suspect got out of a light gray or blue sedan with aluminum wheels. He pointed a black handgun at the victim and took his backpack, the sheriff’s office said. The suspect was described as a skinny, dark-skinned teenager wearing a red bandana over his mouth, black shirt, blue jeans and a light blue beanie. He was described as possibly 5 feet 10 inches tall. Three or four other males were inside the sedan.In the second incident, two males walked up to the victim and one of them asked if he had any money, the sheriff’s office said. When the victim replied that he did not, the suspect displayed a handgun that was in his waistband and asked if the victim had anything of value. The victim said that he had a musical instrument, and both males left on foot without taking anything, the sheriff’s office said. The suspect who displayed the handgun was described as a dark-skinned teenager with a shaved right eyebrow. He was wearing a white jacket and believed to be taller than 5 feet 3 inches.The cases were referred to the Tactical Detective Unit. No other similar robberies were reported in the area. Anyone with information on either of these incidents is asked to call the West Precinct at 360-397-6079.

That’s what football is like. It was a very high level-match, with a completely different playing style than our quarter-final match against Brazil.“We should have won, but didn’t manage to, although France were not better than us.”

Jose Mourinho is hopeful that Alexis Sanchez’s minor injury will mean that he will make a quick return for Manchester UnitedThe Red Devils provided a rather dull and uninspired performance without their Chilean striker in Sunday’s 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.Sanchez was forced to withdraw from the game due to a minor niggle, despite having trained with the team throughout all of last week.Although Mourinho is confident that he will not be out for long.“I don’t think it’s a big thing.

Maurizio Sarri believes that Marcos Alonso could be one of the best left-backs in the world after he provided another assist in Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Bournemouth.Alonso is proving himself to be a key player under Sarri so far this season and he gave Eden Hazard an assist to score the second goal against Bournemouth and Sarri was full of praise for the 27-year-old after Chelsea’s fourth straight win in the Premier League.“Alonso I think at the moment in this position, left-back, he is maybe the best in Europe,” Sarri told Sky Sports.“Physical qualities at top level, I think. He’s doing very well in the offensive phase. I also think he can improve in the defensive phase. He could be the best left-back in the world.”Sarri wasted no time to rule out talks of title challenge as he deems it too early.Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“I think now for us it’s better to think of the next match. Because the gap at the beginning was 30 points,” Sarri said.“I think it’s very difficult to cover this gap in only one season. I’m very happy with the four matches, but I think only, starting from now, to the next match, not to the end of the season.“I’m very happy with 12 points in four matches. But I always think we can do more. We can improve.”
