BRONX NEWS: NYC man busted in alleged slay of mom at hearing on minor charges


An unhinged Brooklyn man, in court for a hearing on lesser charges, bizarrely proclaimed his innocence Tuesday after his surprise arrest for the throat-slash murder of his mom.


Joseph Garcia, 31, began spouting gibberish after he was charged inside a Bronx courtroom with second-degree murder in his mother’s brutal death.


“I wouldn’t know,” Garcia told the Daily News when asked what happened to Joan Viau. “There’s no suggestions. I do not want to disclose certain realities, to not ruin certain unconscious beings, and that’s all.”


The handcuffed murder suspect asked a television reporter to contact his surviving family for bail money, and suggested he wanted new legal counsel.

Missing Bronx mom found dead in wooded area had throat cut


“I need an attorney that’s fully informed,” shouted the handcuffed man. “An actual attorney. And an actual life.”


The 52-year-old Viau was missing for six days before her butchered corpse was found this past Saturday in a wooded stretch of Upper Manhattan about eight blocks north of the George Washington Bridge.


Autopsy results made public Monday showed the victim’s throat was slashed.


A half-dozen court officers led an uncomfortable-looking Garcia, wearing a brown prison suit and a mop of untamed hair, into the courtroom Tuesday afternoon.

Garcia’s defense lawyer, Martin Fisher, asked for his client’s release on a charge of possession of stolen property — his dead mom’s credit card.


Assistant District Attorney Orville Reynolds instead announced the new charges against Garcia: “The defendant will be taken into custody by NYPD officers … murder in the second degree.”


Viau was last seen Jan. 23 with her son outside her Williamsbridge home as she left for an appointment at a local Veterans Affair hospital.


Her son Garcia was quickly identified by authorities as the No. 1 suspect in her disappearance and death.

Viau’s red 1998 Toyota 4Runner was found last Wednesday near her home, with blood on the rear seat and a bloody palm print on the cloth ceiling, sources said.


Surveillance video caught Garcia, of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, parking the car near his mom’s home and walking away from the vehicle. He was also seen on video using Viau’s ATM card, sources said.


Garcia was arrested Thursday after investigators found his mother’s credit card in his front pants pocket. His lawyer said the accused murderer came to court expecting to make bail.

adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged “Crystal” // Coming Soon

Adidas has been extremely successful in their efforts to offer equality where sneaker releases are concerned. The ladies fare just as well as their male counterparts when Ultra Boost drops take place; that much is evident given this Ultra Boost Uncaged colorway exclusive to the fairer sex.

Constructed as always in Primeknit, the shoe depicts a sky blue shade matched with white threading and corresponding Boost cushioning. A tonal heel counter draws comparisons to the sock-like ankle collar and white Continental outsole.

The women’s adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged “Crystal” drops tomorrow, February 1, at Canadian retailers and soon at adidas U.S. stores.

En Noir x PUMA “Seize the Night” Pack Drops Tomorrow

In Latin, the term “Carpe Noctem” translates to “Seize the Night”, which stands as the inspiration for the latest pairing between streetwear label En Noir and sportswear giant PUMA.

Fueled by the concept of nocturnal work, the En Noir x PUMA “Seize the Night” Pack features both the Ignite evoKNIT (0) and Clyde (0) in all-black construction with varying details. The evoKNIT, for instance, models a sock-like knitted upper with “Fleur de Lis” embossed across the ankle collar joined by tonal nylon strap caging wrapping around the heel counter. The Clyde is more subtle; dressed in a nubuck suede upper married to leather lining and gloss-finished brand work.

Take a closer look at the collection below and expect the release tomorrow at select retailers like Feature.

BRONX NEWS: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard proves series still have life: review


So the Resident Evil series still has a few scares left in it after all. 


Just when you might have been thinking about giving up the franchise, after too many Michael Bay-inspired missteps, here comes Resident Evil 7: Biohazard to restore both glory and gory to the series. 


It’s a spectacular effort that succeeds by ditching all touches of action-adventure gaming and returning the franchise to its survival-horror roots. Exploration and immersion (two things made better by virtual reality) are this outing’s calling cards, and they’re so well-done that, even in an era when both gamers and movie-goers can feel the scares before they happen, Resident Evil 7 will still genuinely frighten you at least once or twice. 


It accomplishes all this with a blend of old-school game conventions and stunning art direction and design. Save rooms are limited, an annoyance in an era of quicksaves and autosaves but a necessary evil here, if only to heighten the tension of running into the evils of the game. Inventory is limited as well, as the premium on item scavenging returns. 

Mafia 3 makes gamers an offer they can’t refuse: review


Those two limitations return a feeling of mortality to Resident Evil 7, and that’s what makes Ethan’s exploration of the eerie Dulvey house work so well. The game opens with Ethan being summoned to this Louisiana plantation, searching for his long-lost girlfriend, but things quickly go south. 


The result is that Ethan has to explore the house in search of escape, while avoiding the zombified Baker family’s torments. There’s intrigue here, as you unravel what the Baker’s did to Ethan’s girlfriend and why they can’t let him escape the house, and even though the game initially feels isolated from the Resident Evil universe that’s gone in so many directions in recent years, Capcom manages to tie things all together by the end. 


It tells a terrific story, too, utilizing a variety of mechanics. The rooms of the Dulvey house are packed with detail, from the textures on the walls to the photos and pens that may sit on a desk in a study room. Reading letters and studying these details reveal slices of story, and a series of videos, which Ethan “watches” but you get to play through, add further depth as you work to escape from the house. 


It’s all tight and focused, and while the puzzles never challenge you, they’re just enough to hold your attention. More often than not, RE7’s puzzles will disappoint, offering answers instantly in front of you, or forcing little actual thought. The uptick of that, however, is that your focus is never removed from the story, the mental mousewheels always turning as you work to understand what befell the Baker family. 

Dishonored 2 is killer addition to beloved video game franchise


That and a flawless score set the stage for the scares that will happen, scares that are often fully organic. No matter what happens, Jack Baker always seems to come back, offering a persistent enemy hunting you. The reality is, aside from a few critical battles, it’s always possible to run away, but that doesn’t alter the tension or the suddenness when he emerges from here or there – or from some spot where it doesn’t even seem possible. 


Resident Evil 7 doesn’t overflow with such scares, because an overflow would be campy and cheesy, and this game aims to be more than that. So when the scares do happen, combined with the immersion of the overall game, they genuinely startle, at least where Jack is concerned. The game’s other regular enemies, the Molded, don’t produce quite as many fits. They’re only in certain areas, and they produce a sound before they show up, really only freaked me out once. But they can be shot and killed with relative ease (although don’t forget to conserve those bullets!), and gradually, you’ll view them as more time-consuming nuisances than true threats. 


Whatever you face, you’ll view it that much more realistically if you play the game in PSVR. The entire Resident Evil 7 can be played on PSVR or on the big screen, and while virtual reality isn’t perfect, it does add to the game. Aiming is easier in PSVR, as you essentially point your head at the target, and the creepiness of several literal in-your-face moments is magnified when you have the headset on. 


A handful of scenes are vastly superior in PSVR, especially the more scripted moments when you’re hiding, waiting for somebody to go away, and you organically poke your head out of cover to see if they’ve left. Capcom figured out the issues that plagued its VR version during last year’s E3, and the entire experience in the final game is steady (although every VR user will have their own threshold for such play). 

Post-apocalyptic Gears of War 4 shows future bright for franchise


Still, the game doesn’t require VR, and it looks just fine on your big screen, very nearly as immersive. Resident Evil 7 also doesn’t make use of PS Move controllers in its VR mode, so you never quite get that “reach out and touch” things feeling that made Batman: Arkham VR truly immersive and addictive. 


Regardless of how you play, though, you get a resurgent game of Resident Evil, a game that returns creepiness and scare tactics to the franchise in a way that’s neither campy nor cheesy. The last few years have seen few games that really owned the horror vibe, with PlayStation-exclusive Until Dawn coming closest to delivering a game full of scares. 


Now, the horror genre has Resident Evil back. And hopefully, this is just the beginning.
