Dawn of MOBA

It's been quite a while since we had a Dawn of War game. Now Relic has presented the latest iteration of what is undoubtedly the best video game series set in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe. Even as 40K itself is at the brink of unprecedented changes heralded by…

Salomé is Dead

The big 29-04-3303 event just ended with the death of Cmdr Salomé. Her three co-conspirators seem to have made it. Meanwhile, some logs (supposedly from her ship) seem to have been found in the Teorge system. There's video footage of the kill. Apparently, it was an inside job. She was…

29-04-3303

On Saturday, the Elite Dangerous universe is going to explode with player activity. Tied in with Elite: Reclamation and the Formidine Rift mystery, Drew Wagar is kicking loose a huge community event – probably the biggest the galaxy has ever seen. I'm gonna try to be there as part of…

I absolutely adore the original Pillars, so I chipped in for $80 – even though it's already massively overfunded. I can't wait to get another Pillars game! And what's even better, my pledge includes a…

People

"People, what a bunch of bastards", Roy famously said on The I.T. Crowd. He's right, of course. And techy people are the worst. Case in point: I came across this little gem of a story at work today. Russian guy murders his friend over argument about which graphics card…

Coming Home to Hutton

Since joining the Hutton Orbital Truckers in December, it's been on my to-do list to undertake the legendary journey to Hutton Orbital myself. As you can imagine, this is a bit of a rite of passage and a point of pride for the Hutton Truckers and even some of the…

Glück Auf!

I've been playing Elite Dangerous ever since the alpha (December 2013) and I've never mined a single asteroid. I've traded, done missions and went exploring but I never even bought a mining laser. Tonight, I've changed this. After buying a Keelback yesterday and outfitting it with a fighter bay, I…
