  • Yen Lam, 67, of Renton, a Vietnamese poet, and Anh Phan, a community liaison who helped translate her poem “Autumn Stirs Memories,” smiles for a picture. More than 800 people packed into Moore Theatre Nov. 10 to celebrate the launch of Poetry on Buses, a community project by 4Culture and the King County Metro Transit to capture local voices in everyday life.

  • Are you playing small? Are you dreaming big enough to reach your fullest potential? What if Oprah had only dreamed of an afternoon book club with her closest friends? What if Steve Jobs had never believed in the possibility of a handheld device that could connect us with the world? And, what if Gandhi had only hoped for friendship among a few people?

  • BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese censors have newly blocked access to several popular websites as they target content delivery networks that serve much of the Internet, according to a U.S. Internet service company.

  • TOKYO (AP) -- There will only be a few hundred, and they won’t be cheap, but Toyota is about to take its first small step into the unproven market for emissions-free, hydrogen-powered vehicles.

  • MOSCOW (AP) -- Ask most Russians and they will tell you that the United States instigated the conflict in Ukraine with the ultimate aim of subjugating Russia. This is what they hear from President Vladimir Putin and in a steady stream of reports on state television.

  • BAINOA, Cuba (AP) -- Some people keep guinea pigs or hamsters as pets.

  • CHICAGO (AP) -- Taking a cholesterol-lowering drug for five years in middle age can lower heart and death risks for decades afterward, and the benefits seem to grow over time, a landmark study finds. Doctors say it’s the first evidence that early use of a statin can have a legacy effect, perhaps changing someone’s odds of disease for good.

  • Lords of The Fallen (PS4, Xbox One, PC) Box Art(http://lordsofthefallen.com/)  Rated M by ESRB. Lords of the Fallen marks the developer CI Games’ first foray into AAA action RPG genre that lends itself to the framework established by the critically acclaimed “Souls” series, though falling short of that illustrious title. However, for a developer that previously released bargain-bin Nintendo DS games and budget shooters this effort is admirable and worth a look for those individuals who feel the wait between Dark Souls 2 (PS3, X360, PC) and Bloodborne (PS4) is taking a bit too long.

  • Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, PC) Box Art (http://www.rockstargames.com/V/) Rated M by ESRB About one year later, and Grand Theft Auto V is now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at long last. Players of the game original release could tell that the game really wasn’t optimized for play on the past-gen systems, but that never stopped it from being one of last year’s best games. Now, with all the new improvements, tweaks, and modifications, Grand Theft Auto V is still one of the best games to come out this year…again.
  • Never Alone (PS4, Xbox One, PC) Box Art (http://neveralonegame.com/) Rated E by ESRB. Never Alone is a very unique experience that I haven’t quite had in a video game before. Never Alone, developed by a small Seattle studio in conjunction with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council that celebrates the culture and storytelling traditions of the Iñupiat people. I’ve never played a game before that has immersed me into a culture like Never Alone has done.
  • Tales of Hearts R Box Art(http://www.bandainamcogames.com/game/tales-of-hearts-r.html)  Rated T by ESRB. The Playstation Vita finally gets an exclusive RPG well worth your money. The famous Tales RPG series puts the latest entry in its series exclusively on the Playstaiton Vita, Tales of Hearts R. Tales of Hearts R is a remake of the previously released 2008 Nintendo DS Tales of Hearts game. I was very surprised and happy that tales of Hearts R came stateside, because it seemed like it was going to be stuck overseas. Thankfully, Gamestop stores worked out a deal to sell physical copies of the game exclusively at their stores.

  • Digimon All Star Rumble Box Art(http://www.bandainamcogames.com/game/digimon_all_star_rumble.html)  Rated E10+ by ESRB. Digimon games have been very popular and successful overseas, so when I heard a Digimon game was coming over to the Us, I was pretty excited! Then I heard it was Digimon All Star Rumble, a party based fighting game, and I got a little less excited, since the successful titles were roleplaying games. Finally, I played the game, and my excitement was completely gone.

  • Pac-Man Ghostly Adventures 2 Box Art(http://www.pacisback.com/)  Rated E10+ by ESRB. Ghostly Adventures 2 follows Pac Man and his friends Cyli and Spiral as they try to stop the terrible ghost menace from Lord Betrayus. The game is based off of the currently airing animated series on Disney, and features many familiar characters and voice actors from the cartoons. Ghostly Adventures 2 follows the same basic platforming and collecting mechanics of the first game. Players will control Pac Man through 40 levels across 5 themed worlds as they hunt down Betrayus.

  • Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (PS Vita) Box Art (http://nisamerica.com/games/danganronpa2/)Rated M for Mature by ESRB. The greatest thing in this world is despair isn’t it? Making everyone despair should be the goal of every person! Or at least that is what the completely insane villains of the Danganronpa (DR) series would have you believe. Monokuma is back, this time with his sort of sister rabbit thing Monomi, the teacher of Hope’s Peak Academy. Is the tropical island high school murder mystery worth the trouble?
  • Gauntlet (PC) Box Art(https://www.2k.com/games/nba-2k15)  Rated E by ESRB. NBA 2K15 is the top choice for basketball video game fans out there. Each year fans eagerly await the new title and new features and elements added to it. NBA 2K15 provides some new gameplay modes that these fans are sure to appreciate.
