UnEpic review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of UnEpic for PC independently developed and published by EnjoyUp. UnEpic has that whole explore, 2d nonlinear progression thing going on for it but with a stronger emphasis on the RPG elements; which makes me like it even more. Like most RPGs, you gain XP, level up, get loot and adventure onward and UnEpic does it quite well. The mystery and challenges of the castle require a trial by fire, but nothing feels insurmountable with dedication and experience -- the mark of a good role-playing game. Between the strange yet witty banter, uniqueness of the story, the complex character creation system and a sometimes brilliantly deadly castle design that demands trial by fire; UnEpic is a no brainer. It's a game for gamers. This video review features video gameplay footage of UnEpic for PC and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Steve.

Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Unepic on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. One minute, you’re standing at the urinal. The next, you’re in some weird dungeon being possessed by a spirit. Hey, who among us hasn’t had that happen? The nerdy protagonist of Unepic, Daniel can certainly relate. He’s been transported to a creepy castle with more than 200 rooms to explore, and now, he’s stuck in a Metroidvania experience that may or may not be a figment of his imagination. Originally released on PCs, Unepic has made its way to Nintendo’s Wii U via the eShop and makes great use of the system’s unique controller. Players can play Unepic on the GamePad entirely, or as a controller, they can assign items to the touch screen for fast access. The game includes 70 spells to cast, as well as 100 different weapons scattered around the castle. It’s a lot to chew, but not many games taste more like Simon Belmont than this retro single-player adventure. This video review features video gameplay footage of Unepic on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Volvo Adventure, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), is an educational initiative organized by Volvo Car Corporation and Volvo Group that rewards environmental activities and projects undertaken by young people to improve their local environment. Out of 365 projects across 47 different countries worldwide, two 15-year-old students from Surabaya in Indonesia took home this year's top prize with their project "Useful Waste for a Better Future." Two years ago, Indonesia was given the title of the dirtiest country in the world by the World Health Organization. Helping to confront this problem, the students' project not only removes rubbish, but also recycles it into sustainable souvenirs and gifts, thus contributing to both the environment and local economy.

UNEP has recently released a TV spot on electronic waste (also called e-waste) to raise global awareness of the dangers presented by toxic waste from discarded electronic products such as computers, cell phones, and other electrical devices. This spot has been created and produced by Emerson College, Boston Massachusetts, who won in 2006 a student marketing competition organized by the International Advertising Association in co-operation with UNEP for the development of a campaign on electronic waste.
The spot will be broadcasted on various TV channels and will be displayed at conferences around the world. If you haven't already seen the spot, you can retrieve it here: http://www.youtube.com/profile_videos?user=dgleyzes
This spot you are currently viewing is the initial TV spot/PSA that the Mixed Greens, an agency for environmental marketing solutions from Emerson College in Boston, USA designed as an element for a campaign for United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).
The goal of the campaign was to inspire a responsible consumption of electronics, offer a sustainable solution for the electronic waste problem, and to raise the awareness about this problem amongst all involved; consumers, businesses and governments. The campaign is also the 2006 worldwide winning entry of the InterAd competition from the International Advertising Association (IAA).
This video is only one element of the campaign and further material such as print ads, a podcast download and a PowerPoint presentation can be seen under http://journalism.emerson.edu/savealife/
The Mixed Greens are a dynamic and highly diverse team composed by eight grad student from five different countries (USA, China, Israel, Jamaica and France). We are currently graduating from a Masters program in Global Marketing Communications and Advertising.
http://SupremeMasterTV.com – PLANET EARTH:OUR LOVING HOME The Gathering Storm: The Human Cost of Climate Change - P1/2. Episode: 1756, Air Date: 6 July 2011.
Intelligent viewers, welcome to Planet Earth: Our Loving Home where we are presenting the first in a two-part program featuring a number of short films from “The Gathering Storm: The Human Cost of Climate Change.” This series is comprised of 16 brief films and covers the effects of climate change across Asia and Africa.
“The Gathering Storm” was produced by the United Nations Environment Programme and the Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN), a humanitarian news and analysis service of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The work has garnered numerous awards, including being named a winner at the 2009 Bangkok HRA Festival and Kos International Film Festival.
This week we will show five chapters from the series: “Harvesting Rain,” “Drip Irrigation,” “Escaping Floods,” “Highland Malaria,” and “Coastal Erosion.” As we will see in some of these films, communities have found ways to adapt to aspects of global warming and still survive. However such measures cannot be considered permanent solutions as even more extreme weather patterns and natural disasters are projected if we take no action to stop the warming of our planet. We begin with “Harvesting Rain.”
The Gathering Storm Harvesting Rain
Ithumba Kitui, Kenya
It’s 8 o’clock in the morning. And Mary Maticia is cleaning the house while her friend from a neighboring district, Grace Niva, sets off to fetch water from the nearest river. It’s a six kilometer walk for Grace. And when she gets there, she finds the river dry. So she starts to dig. Back in her village, Mary has finished her housework. And now she, too, sets off to fetch water.
But no long walk or digging in the sand for her. Her water's on tap. And it’s all thanks to this rock. When it rains, water runs down the face of the rock and gathers in this reservoir, then down through these pipes, and into a storage tank. This one holds 150,000 liters and can keep the community going for months.
The project was built and is now managed by the community it serves. And everyone who joins the project shares its benefits.
Now we have time to take care of our cows and crops, because we have water near our homes. Before, we only had time to fetch water.
Most communities levy a charge for the water, three US cents per 20 liter-jerry can is typical. And some well-established communities are now turning a profit and reinvesting.
Here the community has bought a plot of land and is setting up a model farm to teach farmers how to use techniques like drip irrigation.
The money we collected from the water catchment, we put into an additional work project. And the way to extend it to the farmers, is to prepare an experimental farm where people can learn what to do in their shambas (vegetable gardens).
Back at the dry river bed, Grace is still scraping water from the bottom of a hole. And as long as women are left to carry this burden, their communities will remain rooted in poverty.
The Gathering Storm Drip Irrigation
Ngohe Ndioffogor, Senegal
Michel Dember is on his way to work the fields. Life as a farmer here in southern Senegal has never been easy. But lately it’s been harder than ever. Droughts have become more frequent, and last year Michel lost his entire peanut crop because of a lack of rain.
Rain has been unreliable for the past few years. Our harvests have been bad.
But instead of driving out to their ancestral lands, which now lie largely unused, Michel and his brother Engor are heading off to school, farming school.
Here, Michel and a hundred other farmers are being taught how to drip irrigate their crops. Water is stored in the tanks and is then released through the pipes and directly onto the plants. Agronomists believe drip irrigation is twice as efficient in its use of water than normal methods of irrigation. And Michel is putting the technology to the test with a field of okra and cucumbers.
Here we have control. We don’t have to wait for the rains. I am sure my harvest will be better.
The Gathering Storm Escaping Floods
Amelia Michaiae has lived in the village of Chicadala all her life. At the heart of the Limpopo River Basin, this place is used to be Mozambique's breadbasket.
But years of war and neglect mean that farmers produce little more than subsistence. To make matter worse, heavy rainfall along the length of the river in recent years means that floods are now common here. So although the land is fertile and crops flourish, they’re always in danger of being washed away before they can be harvested.
We prepare the area and plant maize, then the flood comes and destroys everything. The flood of 2001 was the worst we’ve ever had. We’d never seen anything like it. We weren’t prepared.
But since then, Amelia has learned to be better prepared.
During floods, we learned to build silos in trees, not only for the seeds but goods and people, too. I have a silo myself and if the floods come, I grab the blankets and clothes, and we run and put everything in the silo.
As global weather patterns become ever more extreme, simple technologies like this one can make a world of difference to people like Amelia.
The Gathering Storm Highland Malaria
When we were young there was no malaria here. But nowadays there’s a lot more. If you go to the hospital, you only find malaria.
In the highlands around Mount Kenya, malaria used to be unheard of. The cold nights and thin air better suited to tea farming than the malarial mosquito. But warmer temperatures mean that the disease that already kills a million Africans a year now threatens hundreds of communities that thought they were safe. The local hospital is now filling up with malaria patients. Children are the worst hit.
Most of the children are coming here with high temperatures and when we take a slide for malaria, it comes out positive. Malaria is really increasing. In the olden days, you would not see people coming with malaria positive. Nowadays, most of the people are coming malaria positive.
Esther Kinyua meanwhile has arrived at the hospital and is helping her 86-year- old mother to eat. She’s suffering from cerebral malaria, and frequent fits of delirium mean hospital stuff have had to restrain her. And as temperatures continue to warm around the world, malaria looks set to strengthen its hold over communities like this.
The Gathering Storm Coastal Erosion
Saint Louis, Senegal
Forty-five-year-old Mukhtar Gaye works as a laborer in the historic town of Saint Louis. But no matter how hard he works, he can’t take his mind off events back at home.
Two kilometers away on the Senegal’s Atlantic coast, rising sea levels threaten to claim the homes of thousands of people like Mukhtar.
Every year, the sea gets closer. It used to be far and now it’s next to us. Everyone is affected, everyone. You see, from here to there, everyone has the same problem.
Mukhtar spends an average of two full days a week, trying to keep the sea at bay. But he knows that he’s fighting a losing battle.
And as the sun sets and the tide comes in, he’s left wondering if tonight is the night that a wave will take away his house.
You don’t sleep well. You can’t eat well. You can’t go to work. You leave and you think that at any time (your house could be taken away).
As we’ve seen today in five chapters from “The Gathering Storm,” climate change is severely disrupting the lives of people across Africa. The conditions for many are becoming more and more arduous every day. What can be done about this frightening situation?
The organic vegan diet is simply the fastest and most effective way for people around the world to put a halt to climate change. An organic vegan lifestyle is ecologically friendly in all aspects and helps prevent the release of human-induced toxic greenhouse gases that accelerate planetary warming, the majority of which come from the production and consumption of animal products.
Please join us next Wednesday on Planet Earth: Our Loving Home for the conclusion of our program where we will present further chapters from “The Gathering Storm” that show how climate change is affecting people living in Asia.

Virtuous viewers, thank you for your presence today on our program. Next on Supreme Master Television is Enlightening Entertainment, after Noteworthy News. May a brighter tomorrow soon be ours through more eco-conscious living.
At the Aral Sea in Central Asia, irrigation and water diversion has led to a dramatic shrinking of the lake beginning in the 1960s and continuing today. Historical imagery, which can be viewed as part of Google Earth's imagery, show how the sea is now a quarter of the size it was 50 years ago. See this and other locations of environmental change as part of the UN Environmental Programme's (UNEP) "Atlas of Our Changing Environment."
