Let's Do The News! (September 12, 2014)

Things we learned today...

- Typhoon Luis has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility and expect heavy rains in Metro Manila by Saturday afternoon due to the hanging habagat. It was last observed 1,050km east of Virac, Catanduanes, and it has maximum winds of 45kph and is forecast to move west northwest 30kph.

- Teen superstars Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla will guest on an episode of ABS-CBN's hit TV series, Be Careful With My Heart, this Monday.

- Despite the ongoing port congestion, the Department of Trade and Industry told that the prices of canned and processed goods will not be affected especially those noche buena items to be served on the oncoming Christmas.

- According to retired General David Petraeus, US President Obama's plan to liberate against the ISIS extremists in Iraq and Syria is a good starting point and this operation should go like clockwork. This will soon put an end to the war for good.

- Part of the ceasefire agreement sealed earlier this month, the government and pro-Russian separatists have exchanged captured prisoners during the Ukraine Crisis.

- French president Francois Hollande will be visiting Iraq as his country is ready to launch imminent airstrikes against ISIS extremists.

- Imagine a scenario when JDM cars are moe girls....Well, there was this. The Japanese automotive news site featured a cleverly unusual mobile game that will hit Japanese iTunes Store and Google Play this Autumn 2014. It's called Syanago Collection and this mobile game lets you enjoy with girls modeled after fully-licensed cars such as the Honda Fit Hybrid, Toyota Passo, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Mazda Axela Sport, Nissan Leaf, and so much more.

- Can't believe it's been 12 years from now since Xenosaga first launched on the Playstation2 since Winter 2002. Should Bandai Namco be doing a remaster on the trilogy? Sadly, the blokes from BNGI have a message to the faithfuls of this classic JRPG. They said that if such release would be profitable but unable to find the right market size that will pay for the development fee needed to create an HD version. Bummer.

- The top animators from Disney and Dreamworks Pictures are working on an independent hand-drawn steampunk cartoon film called Hullabaloo. This will be a crowdsourced project in the making and this is an effort to bring 2D animation back on the table and encourage girls to explore science and adventure.
