BOEING has unveiled a new hypersonic 4,000mph jet which could fly from New York to London in just TWO HOURS, it has been reported. The airline giant has also said the new aircraft, which could be released into service in 2030, is almost three times faster than Concorde. According to Aviation Week Network, Boeing has joined with hypersonic specialists at the company’s research and technology unit to study a Mach 5 passenger transport capable of crossing the Atlantic in two hours or the Pacific Ocean in three hours. Flying at Mach 5, the unnamed aircraft has a projected cruise altitude of 95,000ft - 30,000ft higher than Concorde - and 2.5 times the speed of the retired Anglo-French aircraft.

The Cthulhu Monster Pack is playable with both King of New York and King of Tokyo but does require one of them to play. Check out our King of New York review here and our King of Tokyo 2nd Edition review here. The monster pack contains the Cthulhu monster board and figure, and also the evolution cards for both King of New York and King of Tokyo. One of the evolution cards, which is extremely thematic, is “Dread Tentacles”, it works the same in KoT and KoNY and allows you to put a madness token on monsters you damage. Maness tokens reduce the flexibility of your opponents roll and doesn’t allow them to re-roll dice up to the amount of madness tokens they have. For example, if a monster has 3 madness tokens, the player will first roll three dice first that can’t be re-rolled, then the last three dice as normal. The Cthulhu Monster Pack adds a new building to King of New York and a new unit to King of Tokyo and King of New York. In King of Tokyo, if after … [Read more...] about Cthulhu Monster Pack Review – King of New York / King of Tokyo Expansion
Destiny 2's latest DLC, Warmind, may be light on campaign missions, but it's heavy on secrets. The one that's generated the most intrigue is a symbol found in the AI Rasputin's bunker that appeared to describe a sequence of steps leading to a final puzzle. After lots of decoding, users on the r/raidsecrets subreddit managed to solve the riddle, which pointed them to a real-life location—Sleeping Beauty Mountain in upstate New York.Reddit user I_love_science was quickest off the mark, heading straight to the location, with another group (unknowingly) hot on his heels. When he reached the site he discovered a stash of loot, including a huge spear based on the Valkyrie weapon that features in the Warmind DLC. He also found gold coins, a journal to log his visit, and a message from Warmind design lead Rob Gallerani, which said that the spear was only one of three in existence.Image 1 of 5Image 2 of 5Image 3 of 5Image 4 of 5Image 5 of 5It's a great find, but I_love_science believes it … [Read more...] about Destiny 2 puzzle leads to real-life loot in upstate New York
The King Kong Monster Pack is playable with both King of New York and King of Tokyo but does require one of them to play. Check out our King of New York review here, and check back next month for our updated King of Tokyo review. The monster pack contains the King Kong monster board and figure, and also the evolution cards for both King of New York and King of Tokyo. One of the evolution cards, which is extremely thematic, is “It was beauty who killed the beast,” which brings into play a double sided card that gives King Kong an extra dice roll each turn if he has the card. However, if King Kong is dealt damage, the card is flipped over and given to the player who damaged him, and is only returned when King Kong damages that player in return. While this doesn’t have a huge affect on the game, it is very in-keeping with Kong and adds a lot of fun into the game. 3 of the 8 available evolution cards for King Kong. The white bordered cards are for King of Tokyo, the black … [Read more...] about King Kong Monster Pack Review – King of New York / King of Tokyo Expansion
