It Takes Two will be as crazy as me and my team, word of Josef Fares

It Takes Two will be as crazy as me and my team

We interviewed the author of It Takes Two Josef Fares ahead of the launch of the new EA Originals game and on this occasion the creator of Brothers A Tale of Two Sons and A Way Out pointed out that his new project will be absolutely insane.

Our Marco Mottura highlights the extreme variety of the game and the situations proposed, asking Fares if the basic idea has always been "so crazy and proudly varied?"

The answer he does not wait: "Crazy? Of course it's crazy, everything is always crazy in Hazelight. I mean, look at me: I'm crazy, so we're a crazy studio. The concept was originally a little different, but slowly we arrived to what we see today: it always takes a while to finalize the game vision that one can also clearly have in mind, and in this case within a couple of months we understood what kind of game to do and where to bring it all. From then on it was just a matter of making the all just crazier, a truly incredible journey. I assure you, when you play it you will understand what I mean, so many things happen in this game ... it really is madness in power. "

It Takes Two will be crazy, as reiterated by its creator, we just have to wait until March 26 to find out, when the title will arrive on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S.





Crazy reasons for predicting Flint-area girls basketball district champions

FLINT – Ever heard a story about somebody who goes to the track for the first time, plunks down some money on one of the horses because of its name or colors of the jockey’s silks, and walks away with a fistful of cash?

Well, we’re going to take a similar approach when it comes to predicting the winners of the girls basketball district tournaments involving Flint-area teams.

After all, what’s wrong with a little off-beat approach given this has been a rather off-beat season?

With that said, he’s a look at who is going to win the Flint-area districts and why’ll they finish on top.

DIVISION 1

At Flushing

March 24 – Swartz Creek (0-10) vs. Flushing (13-2), 5:30; Flint (0-4) vs. Carman-Ainsworth (5-6), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Midland Dow to play the winner of the Grand Blanc district

Prediction: Flushing is well known among other things for its delightful Christmas Candle Walk, 2017 girls state basketball champions and the incomparable Debie Lawrence, MVP of the 1982 softball team. Add the 2021 girls district champions to that list.

At Grand Blanc

March 24 – Oxford (9-4) vs. Grand Blanc (10-3), 5 p.m.; Lapeer (2-15) vs. Davison (9-6), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 6 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Midland Dow to play the winner of the Saginaw Heritage district

Predictions: Fish & chips at Whitey’s in Davison vs. the shrimp platter at Grand Blanc’s Crossbow Inn? Crossbow is my favorite Flint-area restaurant – the fish & chips there are pretty darn good, too – so we’re going with the Bobcats.

At Linden

March 22 – Fenton (9-6) vs. Holly (5-10), 6 p.m.

March 24 – Linden (8-4) vs. Hartland (15-0), 5:30 p.m.; Fenton-Holly winner vs. Howell (11-3), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Holly to play the winner of the Walled Lake Northern district

Prediction: Let’s get out the coin I carry with a head on both sides. (Just in case I need a sure win, you know?) If it’s heads, we’re picking Hartland to win. The verdict? Shocker, it’s Hartland!

Division 2

At Powers Catholic

March 22 – Mt. Morris (1-8) vs. Powers Catholic (2-11), 5:30 p.m.; Clio (2-13) vs. Brandon (7-6), 7 p.m.

March 24 – Mt. Morris-Powers winner vs. Goodrich (8-6), 5:30 p.m.; Clio-Brandon winner vs. North Branch (10-3), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to Imlay City regional to play the winner of the Yale district

Prediction: Nothing would be more fun than to see Powers win since the junior varsity team will play in the opener because the varsity is in COVID quarantine. But picking the Chargers would be like stepping out onto the fragile branch of a tree. In this case, it’s a Branch pointing North.

At Yale

March 24 – Croswell-Lexington (5-8) vs. Imlay City (11-3), 5:30 p.m.; Almont (8-8) vs. Yale (6-5), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Imlay City to play the winner of the Powers Catholic district

Prediction: I’ve only been to one of these four cities. That’s nothing against the other three. But if I was compelled enough to visit Imlay City, there obviously must be something special about it. On my next visit I’ll be sure to check out the 2021 district championship trophy.

At Owosso

March 22 – Ovid-Elsie (11-4) vs. Durand (8-7), 5:30 p.m.; Chesaning (7-5) vs. Owosso (3-10), 7 p.m.

March 24 – Ovid-Elsie/Durand winner vs. Corunna (11-3), 5:30 p.m.; Chesaning-Durand winner vs. Lake Fenton (11-1); 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Corunna vs. winner of the Bridgeport district

Prediction: Lake Fenton is the alma mater of the late, great Frank Hoedl, one of the best friends a guy could ever have and the Blue Devils’ lineup includes Cola Sisk, who has the coolest name of any Flint-area player.

At Bridgeport

March 22 – Caro (8-6) vs. Bridgeport (7-7), 5 p.m.; Birch Run (0-14) vs. Carrollton (1-12), 7 p.m.

March 24 – Caro-Bridgeport winner vs. Saginaw (6-8), 5:30 p.m.; Birch Run-Carrollton vs. Frankenmuth (14-0), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to the regional at Corunna vs. the winner of the Owosso district

Prediction: Frankenmuth is more than just the most charming city in Michigan, it also has a great golf course with a cool name – The Fortress – as well as a basketball team that will remain unbeaten for another week.

Division 3

At Bendle

March 22 – Flint New Standard (2-7) vs. Hamady (7-2), 7 p.m. (at New Standard); Bentley (6-7) vs. Atherton (0-5), 7 p.m. (at Bentley)

March 24 – New Lothrop (10-3) vs. Bentley-Atherton winner, 5:30 p.m.; Hamady-New Standard winner vs. Beecher (4-4), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Bad Axe vs. winner of the LakeVille district

Prediction: Perennial Division 3 power Hamady would have always been the pick in the past. But the Hawks haven’t reported one game this season so we know nothing about them. But we do know New Lothrop has one of the area’s best players in senior Brooke Wenzlick, who lives to play another week.

At LakeVille

March 22 – Memphis (4-10) vs. Kimball Landmark (5-3), 5:30 p.m.; Capac (0-12) vs. LakeVille (0-9), 7 p.m.

March 24 – Memphis-Kimball Landmark winner vs. Marlette (5-7), 5:30 p.m.; Capac-LakeVille winner vs. Brown City (4-8), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Bad Axe vs. winner of the Bendle district

Prediction: Reporters aren’t supposed to root for teams they cover, but I always pull for LakeVille to win since the Falcons have had such a tough go of recently. But in this case, we have to go with the team that reminds me of The Kindergarten Cop, Det. John Kimball

At Reese

March 22 – Montrose (2-6) vs. Hemlock (8-8), 7 p.m. (at Montrose); Vassar (1-13) vs. St. Charles (17-0), 7 p.m. (at Vassar); Saginaw Valley Lutheran (8-7) vs. Millington (3-9), 7 p.m. (at Valley Lutheran)

March 24 – Montrose-Hemlock winner vs. Reese (12-1), 5;30 p.m.; Vassar-St. Charles winner vs. Valley Lutheran-Millington winner, 7:30 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Bad Axe vs. winner of the Unionville-Sebewaing district

Prediction: In these uncertain days of COIVD-19, unemployment everything else, there’s no way I’m going against a team named after a Saint. (Especially one with a perfect record.)

At Laingsburg

March 22 – Bath (5-6) vs. Potterville (4-8), 7 p.m.

March 24 – Pewamo-Westphalia (2-7) vs. Laingsburg (7-3), 5:30 p.m.; Bath-Potterville winner vs. Byron (15-0), 7 p.m.

March 26 – Championship game, 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Hanover-Horton vs. the winner of the East Jackson district

Prediction: Byron has been my No. 1-ranked girls team all season. And anybody who has been paying attention for years knows I haven’t been wrong since 1974. So what do I do, go against myself? Not this week. (Or any other week for that matter!)

Division 4

At International Academy of Flint

March 22 – Morrice (6-4) vs. Genesee Christian (8-7), 7 p.m.

March 24 – Championship game, Morrice-Genesee Christian winner vs. Genesee (7-5) 7 p.m.

Champion advances to regional at Auburn Hills Christian vs. winner of the Dryden district

Prediction: Odds are a team with Genesee in its name will win, correct? (My 1981 Texas Instruments calculator confirmed that.) So which Genesee wins? In a strange twist, I’ll take the Christians over the Lions (even though Genesee is known as the Wolves.)
