Four years ago James Young suffered through a tragic, life-threatening accident when he lost his arm and leg after falling in between two train carriages. The subsequent days were a dark time for Young, but he sought solace through a true passion of his--gaming. Young would play his Playstation 4 using his right arm and teeth in a feat of true dedication.

As fate would have it, Konami eventually featured an ad calling upon all interested gamer amputees to enter a raffle of sorts, in which the selected applicant would receive a prosthetic inspired by Konami's Metal Gear Solid. Young was fortunate enough to be selected, and even offer up his two-cents on the prosthetic's design.

The carbon-fiber limb is controlled by muscle signals from Young. He can shake hands, lift groceries, and pick up small objects like coins. Young has already taken the initiative to start up his own fundraising campaign, with hopes to further improve upon the technology for future users (an example being the arm weighs 10 lb, requires harness and gel, and can't be worn all day).

Yes, it seems McDonalds in China is celebrating the Angry Birds' movie release with a bunch of food inspired off the movie, like the 'Naughty Green Pork Burger' above which includes a pork patty, egg, lettuce, mysterious jalapeno-esque sauce, and those iconic green buns.

China's also gearing up for the Angry Red Burgers, which naturally feature flaming red buns.

Information just wants to be free... For those out there otherwise unaware this means that all five expansion packs have been consolidated into the basic game, which is $20 before starting up with the monthly subscription fee. 

Can't help but hear the tortured cries of those souls that perished in the closing of Nostalrius in the background though...
