Your patience has been awarded because thanks to Goldpanner, we have a translation of Nomura’s interview available for you now! Discussed below is the progress of Kingdom Hearts 3, possibilities of Kingdom Hearts -HD 1.5 ReMIX- and Kingdom Hearts -HD 2.5 ReMIX- being ported to the PS4, ways to make Kingdom Hearts χmore accessible to the players, a HD ReMIX for Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] and the opening scene for Kingdom Hearts 3!
>The reason that enigmatic trailer was put out
—-You used the opening section of KH3 in a recently released trailer for KH2.5, didn’t you. The conversation between those strangers was rather enigmatic.
Nomura: I had received so many responses after releasing that play video previously, and I could feel that people were eagerly anticipating KH3. I really wanted to put out some sort of message, even though I couldn’t show any content at that time. And, I wanted to show everyone that KH3 begins somewhere nobody is expecting, with speaking from new voice actors that haven’t appeared in the series before. I really enjoyed seeing everyone try to guess who those two are.
[Interview Bits and Bobs: Likelihood of a PS4 version | With the shift to the next gen consoles underway, especially overseas, would you say you want to release KH1.5 and KH2.5 on the Playstation 4 or the Xbox One? ”Since we’ve only just finished work on KH2.5, we would need a little more time to look into the technical aspects of HD remastering for next gen consoles.” (Nomura)]

Imma just let this sit here
MOTHA FUCKIN SCIENCE
They turned RNA into an anti-virus program. That is amazing.
Let me restate this in case it didn’t sink in the first time
Researchers physically DELETED ALL TRACES of the HIV virus from a human cell.
ALL OF IT.
IF YOU ARE NOT EXCITED ABOUT THAT I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HIV IS
Here is the original paper. My computer at work is currently being an ass.
“Our results also demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, that Cas9/gRNA genome editing can be used to immunize cells against HIV-1 infection. The preventative vaccination is independent of HIV-1 strain’s diversity because the system targets genomic sequences regardless of how the viruses enter the infected cells.”
“Here, we found that LTR-directed gRNA/ Cas9 eradicates the HIV-1 genome and effectively immunizes target cells against HIV-1 reactivation and infection with high specificity and efficiency. These properties may provide a viable path toward a permanent or “sterile” HIV-1 cure, and perhaps provide a means to eradicate and vaccinate against other pathogenic viruses.”
This is beyond awesome. Not only does it cure HIV infection, it immunizes other cells. They believe it can be applied to other viral infections where the virus integrates into the host’s genome.
Lets think about this for a second. HIV was first confirmed in 1959, retroactively, by examining the deceased’s preserved blood. Between 1960 and 1980, HIV and AIDS are both relatively unknown, with many cases only confirmed retroactively by symptoms or studying the deceased years after their death.
In 1980, we have “Patient Zero” in the USA. This is when HIV/AIDS became publicly known.
1980. It is now 2014. 34 years. It took us only 34 years, from widespread knowledge to this first major step in a cure. 34 years. Just slightly longer than a generation we have fought HIV to this extent.
And we are only going to get better at it.
I really hope Hussie is okay. You can tell from a lot of his posts that he feels a lot of pressure to keep up with everything and not disappoint the fanbase. Hussie if you somehow read this please know we love you and we would wait a thousand years for even a page of your creativity and talent. We act impatient but it’s okay it’s all okay we can wait yknow?
Here’s some fantastic news for your Friday: On Thursday, the California Senate unanimously approved a new bill that defines sexual consent as a firm “yes” rather than a lack of “no.”
This is a big win for anti-rape activists, many of whom have been touting the necessity of an “affirmative consent” standard for years. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has the next month to sign the bill into law. If he does, schools across the state would be required to define consent before engaging in sexual activity as an “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” or risk losing state financial aid funding.
GUYS XKIT IS SO AWESOME
you can install profiler
and then go to someones blog and click this little doohickey
and a box like this will pop up and you can set a name/nickname for them
and then the name will appear in parentheses on their posts on your dashboard
AND YOU WILL NEVER FORGET A BLOGGERS NAME AGAIN
WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS AMAZING WHAT EVEN HOW DID I NOT KNOW IS THIS NEW
replied to your post
: “Homestuck is gonna update and I’m still not fucking done with my…”
then lets fighto yooooooosh
Thanks you, this actually really helps :)
I think we can all agree that this is the main highlight of Mass Effect 1.
happy giga almost unpause
