London's New Muslim Mayor Takes Aim At Sexy Subway Ads | Fox News
Arms, a flagship Nintendo Switch title from the same folks who brought us Splatoon, is a fighting game merely Nintendo could release. The object of video games, as in many opposing games, is to knock down your adversary. How you do it, patently, is the trick.
In Arms your weapons are, well, your limbs. There are 30 different limbs for ten characters and the arms spring out and can twist towards enemies. The controls are interesting in that they take advantage of the Joy-Con wireless controllers, allowing you to punch in the air to reach your adversaries. With the associated arms( or pigtails) you can created up to nine thousand different combinations to shock, freeze, burn, and maul your enemies. Gameplay is wildly simple and the entire package is quite bright and addictive. In short, it has everything that constructed Splatoon so fun and addictive.
The characters include Ribbon Girl who can multi-jump in mid-air while her twiddling ribbon arms, Min Min and her spin kicking, and characters like Master Mummy who regain health automatically.
When you start the game you have access to three arms. To get more arms, you must visit the Arm shooting gallery, a mini-game of skill and chance that you pay for using in-game currency. To collect more Limbs you target and shoot floating prizes in the shooting gallery after unlocking access to the mini-game.

If the sheer number of combinations of arms doesnt oblige you, there are also abilities to use and master. Arms is an easy game to play, but a hard game to master. You can hand the controller to a child our five-year-old loved it and theyd be able to play easily. The best thing about Arms is that there are no in-game buys to tempt kids into falling $19 for a new costume.
As in Splatoon, Arms features a wide and interesting various forms of maps. Each map features a different theme and each one requires a different style of play. You can play in Grand Prix mode, a gauntlet to become the champion, or Versus mode, a route to hone your skills in games like Team Fight, V-Ball, Hoops, Skillshot, and 1-on-100.
Online play lets you join a group of up to 20 people and play a variety of all the different modes. You also have a chance to team up to fight a special boss with 2 other people. Even when you are not playing and waiting for other players to finish up their games, there is a warm-up zone to practise in, emotes, and a cool-looking lobby where you can wait for your next battle.

The newly elected mayor of London’s call for a ban on public ads that present scantily clad women has critics complaining the move has more to do with his Muslim roots than his concerns about “body-shaming.”

Sadiq Khan, who became the city’s first Muslim mayor in May, called for a ban on ads showing women in bikinis in a letter published in the Guardian, saying images such as the controversial “Beach Body Ready” one used by Protein World send a harmful message.
“As the parent of two teenage girls, I am exceedingly concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, especially females, and induce them ashamed of their bodies, ” Khan wrote. “It is high time it came to an end.”
The city’s mass transit system, Transport for London, will create an “Advertising Steering Group” in conjunction with the advertising companies to ensure that on buses and subways “reflect London’s diversity, ” according to the mayor’s office.
The move is not sitting well with critics who believe it is an accommodation to Muslim sensibilities. In strict Islamic society, women are supposed to dress “modestly, ” which can entail anything from a head scarf to a full burka with only eye slits.
“Muslim mayor banned ads with bikini-clad women on TFL. Stand by for adverts for burkinis, ” tweeted Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins, a fierce critic of the increasing influence of fundamentalist Islam on British culture.
Others tweeted that the mayor should also ban ads considering erectile dysfunction and even weight loss products if he is serious about ensuring ads don’t offend the general public.
Critics have long claimed that ultra-thin models put unrealistic expectations on girls and women, but others say ads like Protein World’s simply show healthy people and, in fact, send a positive message.
