Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Beta Weekend

The Just Cause 2 Multiplayer website has word that another public beta test is underway for this modification that adds multiplayer mayhem to the existing mayhem in Just Cause 2, Avalanche Studios' open-world action game. They have patch notes on the most recent version 0.0.13 patch and instructions on how to participate in the testing, which runs through Monday. Thanks Blend Games.

Star Wars: The Old Republic PTR Patch

The Star Wars: The Old Republic website has word that a new version 2.3 game update is now available on the Play Test Server for the Star Wars MMORPG, though word is you will already need a high-level character copied over to participate: "Game Update 2.3 is now live on our Public Test Server! For those of you that already have high level, copied characters on our Public Test Server, we encourage you to explore the CZ-198 moon and two new Czerka Flashpoints. Get on, check everything out, and give us your feedback by posting on the Public Test Server forum. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to offer the ability to copy characters for this test nor will there be any rewards offered for testing. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause."

Edge of Space Early Access

Steam News announces early access is now available for Edge of Space, offering the chance to get a prerelease copy of the platformer and influence its development. Here's word:

Players suit up as an Operative of the Ark Corporation (ArkCo), deployed into the deepest, darkest, and most dangerous part of the universe. Fight against an array of creative horrors including cybernetically-enhanced laser space sharks or vicious genetically-evolved polar bears - and those are not even the strangest monstrosities to encounter!

You must terraform the entire world, craft armor, weapons, kits, and vehicles to help you explore and conquer. You start with only a laser pick and the gear from your pod, and immediately get working as every ore you mine is valuable. At the absolute edge of space you must adapt or die! Good luck ArkCo Operative!

Out of the Blue

We're still struggling to clear the backyard of some overgrowth and a big pile of tree debris I created while pruning and trimming. We're not the biggest gardeners to start with, and the weather alternating between rain and sweltering heat is not helping move things along. I think I've previously mentioned my fascination with a scene in the Anthony Hopkins movie The World's Fastest Indian where he clears his overgrown lawn with fire. I'm pretty sure if I thought I could safely and legally get away with it, I would be out there with a torch right now.
