Ok. I've mixed in the magic powder. My monkeys better show up soon.

Another day, another I'll never read because they don't put their comics in their RSS stream.

I really don't understand why artists would setup a reader-unfriendly RSS feed.

I guess in the olden days they were worried about protecting their ad revenue ... but who cares about that now? Who doesn't have an ad-blocker?

After discussing the Oregon Trail handheld, I started thinking about other RPG games I wish had turned into handhelds.

I've sketched out my ideal fantasy of a Tiger Electronics handheld.

Of course, this would probably be the most expensive one they ever made, both for the screens, and for the ram/rom requirements ...

... BUT IT WOULD BE WORTH IT!

When did it become acceptable for Microsoft to put advertisements in our Start menu?

When did we decide it was OK for them to do that?

Fooling around with the wonderfully absurd Oregon Trail handheld.

I wonder : Is this the first time an RPG has been published in a dedicated handheld?

"Ooo. This is a good web-comic! I look forward to seeing where this goes!"

"Oh, they don't put the comic in the RSS feed? I look forward to forgetting about it entirely."

RIP Klout. Without , how will I know how important I am?

Why do "Open World" games have to exist on roughly square maps? I spend most of my time near roads, just like in real life.

Take that 100 square miles of content, and give me 200 miles of a road, with a quarter mile of content on either side.

I guess this is how "Euro Truck Simulator" works, but I want to be able to get out of the truck and have an adventure.

The book "The Earth Abides", features our hero going on an adventure down the abandoned, Rt 66.

THAT would make a great video game.

I believe the game has been patched to include 'Developer's Commentary', which I haven't seen yet, but that's usually a fun addition.

"Flame in the Flood" is a great game.

"Survival elements" are a really tired gameplay mechanic on their own, but combined with a compelling journey through a flooded town, they provide a good experience.

If Humble is offering 100% off on this title, everyone should try it.

Got another FREE game coming your way. This time it is The Flame in the Flood. You have 48 hours to go grab your free copy. What are you waiting for?!?! GET OVER THERE AND GRAB A COPY!!! It does not support Linux sadly.

The Americans in this thread sure are patriotic about these Turkish army helicopters doing a training maneuver.

I wonder if perhaps they think only the USA has helicopters.

This is pretty shameless. "General Umber"? Really?

I feel like I'm looking at the app store in real life.

After watching some YouTube videos about those "fire extinguisher balls", I'm not sure if I want one in every room of my house, or if I never want to come within a thousand feet of one.

Oh hey, the marketing department made a slick video about the haptic devices I write the drivers for.

A local news website is telling me that unless I disable my ad-blocker, they're going to punish me by not showing the auto-play videos.

What we have here is a win-win scenario!

This week's Jim Sterling show is about "Why We Need Middle Shelf Games".

It's like he READ MY MIND.

Earlier today, before I'd even read the title of his video, I was browsing through my old PS2 games, sad that my most cherished PS2 memories are the kind of "B Game" that we're not allowed to have anymore.

Apparently Ghostbusters action figures are priced by how awesome the character is.

Bought a used book. This was being used a bookmark.

Look how SHORT it is. Says what it needs to, and that's it. Nowadays you even can't walk past a big store without being handed three feet of register tape.

The best part is the purchases though. Odd World *AND* Duke Nukem?

Somebody was in for an awesome weekend back in 1997.
