    Endless Space + DLC $1 on Steam until the 17th

    fun game, havent played it in in a long time (years?). when I went to 4k it got too difficult to play as the UI doesnt scale at all and the text was waaaaayyyyy too small. I think the publisher was supposed to be getting something in place for this like they did their other 4x game Endless...

    Why did it take so long for RPG's to become popular in the west?

    I had buddies who used to make fun of me for playing RPGs...they called them 'reading games'. one of my friends in college saw I had FF7 and was like 'they tricked you into buying that too!!" and I'm was like 'huh?'. turns out the commercial for ff7 made it look more action than rpg so it...

    Watch Google’s Robot Dog Play With A Real Dog

    glad to see that dog didnt go all punk ass and run away. he stayed and alerted, just like the dogs in the future will have to do when T1000s show up. and yes, the potential lethality of that thing is pretty apparent. imagine it with high def cameras able to run around a battlefield or...

    X-COM 2 Looks really good. Is it worth the $60

    I've been lucky, I've had a soldier panic in a few different missions but twice the mofo ran to full cover, then turned around and shot the closest enemy in the face :D Once it was my sniper, she used the big ass handgun they carry to do the long range execution.

    X-COM 2 Looks really good. Is it worth the $60

    This. I have had one CTD and a few stutters but by and large having fun. I'm maybe 5-6 missions in and finding all the changes to research and soldier handling but I'm enjoying it. I was one of those slow, methodical players in EU/EW; set em up, execute the plan, everybody goes home. Now...
