Of these, Tomb Raider made the biggest splash, and it has sold more than 6 million copies. A sequel was unveiled at the Microsoft E3 conference. As was a follow-up to the new Killer Instinct, which was definitely the biggest surprise reboot of last year. That series was last seen in 1996, and fans had been clamoring for a new entry ever since. But it wasnt until last years E3 that Microsoft announced the reboot as an Xbox One launch title. Although a new pricing model caused early controversy, the final product was very well received and a sequel has been announced. Lobb, who worked on the original Killer Instinct titles back in the 90s, spearheaded that reboot as well. But whereas he was an integral part of KIs design, he was not on Phantom Dusts development team. He was just a fan, albeit one in a position to bring it back after its commercial failure. He had been trying for nearly a decade when the stars aligned. I reminded Phil [Spencer, head of Xbox] that I loved the game, over and over again, and somebody tweeted at him, saying, Hey, we should do Phantom Dust! And because a lot of people follow him, others came piling in on top. This spurred Creative Director Adam Isgreen, who also worked on Killer Instinct, to outline of a Phantom Dust rebootjust in case. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit Video Games Go Wild for Reboots - Yahoo News
Just another experience for me and yes just plan on getting better from this, said Todd Lane. Its been really nice having all the college coaches come in. I mean we had guys from all over Cornell, American, Lehigh, Bucknell and they basically all have the same kind of stuff just different spins on it. Basic stuff is what their teaching. Just little tricks-tips mental usually that sticks with you, said Kent Lane. The Disney world duals is a culmination of the MAWA season. Come July 1st thats when the college recruiting amps up and schools can start offering scholarships to some or all of these wrestlers. Weve had college coaches come in here everyday. So not only are they gaining some more experience and some knowledge and getting better, but their also showing off themselves and hopefully their going to help themselves down the road when these schools are going to try to recruit them. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit MAWA wrestling team at Disney World Duals | WNEP.com

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 02, 2014 Michael Jacobs, creator of the 90s hit series Boy Meets World, speaks candidly with AfterBuzz TV hosts Kristen Snyder and Lee Epstein about the process of creating the much-anticipated sequel Girl Meets World. Taking us behind the scenes of the pilot, Jacobs describes in detail a scene starring William (Bill) Daniels as the famous teacher Mr. Feeny, which ended up on the cutting room floor. We shot two scenes with Bill for the pilot, and I dont mind telling you because were being truthful here about what happened. The scene we shot with Bill was wonderful, and took you right out of the show...And it was a wonderful scene. I chose not to show it, which doesnt mean I wont show it eventually. The reason I chose not to show it was Corys the teacher, and Cory is not Feeny. Jacobs has a message for fans of Boy Meets World: To the original audience: stay. For those of you who left (the pilot) going, Its a little young, Im telling you, Stay. Jacobs says, The show brings back almost all of the original cast (of Boy Meets World). If you liked the pilot at all, you will love the next episode. Its better. And the one after that is better than that. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit Girl Meets World Creator Michael Jacobs And Disney Channel Executive Corey Marsh Discuss New Season and Mr. Feeny Deleted Scene on Maria Menounos' Afterbuzz TV Network
Leg room on attractions is an issue for riders with disabilities Written by Daniel Etcheberry Published: July 2, 2014 at 10:57 AM Leg room in a ride vehicle is something that anyone with no mobility with their legs cares about when deciding which attraction to ride. If the space for the legs is too narrow, it could mean a very hard transfer. I will give some examples of wide and narrow leg rooms. Splash Mountain has a very narrow leg room; so much so that even ambulatory people have to put their feet over the seat to get into the log. Pirates of the Caribbean, on the other hand, has a much wider leg room, so getting in is much easier. New rides tend to have more leg room than old ones; Tomorrowland?s Speedway has a very narrow seating, but Radiator Springs Racer and Test Track is wider. Although, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train?s seating looks like it was made for dwarfs. The best rides are the ones that don?t have space limits for the legs; Soaring and Forbidden Journey comes to mind. The worst are the log flumes as mentioned above. As someone with no mobility on my legs, sometimes I wish I didn?t have them ? that way I could ride Splash Mountain, but of course that is a crazy thought. If you are interested to know if the leg room will be a problem for you before going to a Disney park, go to allears.net where there is a link to the attraction?s seating photo gallery.
Readers' Opinions From Tracy Bates on July 2, 2014 at 11:32 AM 7 dwarfs has a really small ride vehicle. My wife has a knee injury and can't bend it much so she couldn't ride that one because of the lack of legroom. (And was deeply disappointed.)
From Anon Mouse on July 2, 2014 at 11:44 AM Leg room is a problem regardless of disability. People are generally getting larger and fatter. I'm a tall person. Most seats are rather uncomfortable. Thus, the older rides with the smaller vehicles are a problem. As Disney retrofits older rides with new tracks and vehicles, they can alleviate the situation, but nothing will truly fix the problem. Only new rides seem to resolve the situation. From James Trexen on July 2, 2014 at 12:10 PM
Dudley Do-Right has the worst leg room on any ride, ever. I love the attraction, but have to hurdle obstacles for it. From Robert Niles on July 2, 2014 at 12:50 PM Throwing fuel onto the flames... Matterhorn Bobsleds (post-refurb), anyone? From 18.104.22.168 on July 2, 2014 at 12:57 PM I agree with Robert - Matterhorn in DLR From 22.214.171.124 on July 2, 2014 at 1:11 PM The Cars ride in Disneyland Paris has hardly any leg room, especially in the front seats! From 126.96.36.199 on July 2, 2014 at 1:20 PM Here's a list of rides that I have trouble fitting on due to legroom. (I'm 6'6".) Barnstormer (then again, it was made for children, I guess) it's a small world (every row but the front; I only fit in other rows if I sit sideways) Magic Carpets of Aladdin (the joystick gets in my way) Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (back row seems worse; getting the bar down is kind of awkward, I either have to put the center bar it between my legs if I'm riding solo or be squished on one side if I'm riding with a friend) Pirates of the Caribbean (every row but the front; the new boats have visit this page a place to put just my feet underneath the bench in front, so I can actually sit in other rows now) Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Space Mountain (even the front rows) Splash Mountain (getting in is difficult but I can get the lap bar down easily) Tomorrowland Speedway (getting in is very hard but I can actually get to the pedal if I sit with my knees up) Gran Fiesta Tour (every row but the front; same as small world) Maelstrom (every row but the front; kind of the same issue as small world and Gran Fiesta Tour, but different boat) Spaceship Earth (I have more legroom in the back, but my knees always touch the seat in front of me, so I usually sit sideways) Test Track (I cannot sit in the back rows, but front rows have more legroom because there's no bench in front) Rock n Roller Coaster (I could fit in the legroom rows [1 and 7? I haven't been on in years] and the other rows were a tight squeeze; this was mostly a torso height problem for me) Star Tours (not that bad, but I prefer sitting in the last seat of the back row so I can put my legs out in front of me) From 188.8.131.52 on July 3, 2014 at 9:07 AM Forbidden Journey is not designed for larger people. If you have a large belly you can forget this ride and it is one of the newer rides. I wish designers would consider all sizes and situations when designing ride cars. We all come to these parks for one reason, FUN!!!!!!! From 184.108.40.206 on July 3, 2014 at 9:36 AM Every time I ride Jurrasic Park my legs and knees are smashed by the big drop at the end. EVERY TIME! Why do I still ride it? From 220.127.116.11 on July 4, 2014 at 9:41 AM I have room issues on the Superman coaster cars at SFNE & Darien Lakes there is NO leg room whatsoever! My shins and knees got squished & bashed pretty good b/c of the strange restraints. I alsi had issues with Georgia Cyclone coaster at SFOG & the new trains on the Arkansas Twister b/c the seats were more narrow & I had a very difficult time squishing in there & Road Runner Express at SFFTx...a bit too short for me, I had to spread my knees sideways to fit. Also I detest the new cars/restraints for the remodeled Iron Rattler at SFFTx. Nothing to hold on to except a knob in between the legs & the lap bar barely fit b/c I'm a taller person, my legs had no room so my knees had to either bend sideways or be raised up where the lap bar wouldn't fit well. NOT comfortable! I'm not planning on riding it again. Previous article: Hogwarts Express opens to all guests at Universal Orlando Planning a trip to Walt Disney World?

Disney Channel gave Girl a strong launchpad by skedding it behind the premiere of original telepic Zapped, featuring two of the channels latest stars, Zendaya and Spencer Boldman. Zapped opened at 8 p.m. to 5.7 million viewers, enough to make it the top-rated cable telecast of the year to date in kids 2-11 (2.9 million), kids 6-11 (2.3 million) and tweens 9-14 (2.1 million). However, Zapped fell short of the high bar set last summer by Disney Channels retro beach-party musical Teen Beach Movie , which garnered 8.4 million viewers in its July 2013 debut. Girl bowed at 9:45 p.m. with 2.3 million viewers in kids 2-11, 1.8 million in kids 6-11 and 1.7 million in tweens. In a clear sign that parents were watching Zapped with their kids, the telepic did a healthy 1.3 million viewers in adults 18-49. Girl brought in 1.6 million viewers in adults 18-49. With Girl, the series that picks up where ABCs 1990s TGIF comedy Boy Meets World generated a tidal wave of media coverage and nostalgia for the Alphabets distinct brand of family comedies from the 1980s and 90s. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit ?Girl Meets World,? ?Zapped?
