Get Jurassic World Evolution for Free

Jurassic World Evolution is now available completely free on the Epic Games Store. This dinosaur-filled Windows strategy game caps off Epic's free game per day holiday spree. And yes, this means this tweet turned out to be 100% accurate at predicting every game being handed out in this promotion. Since the daily freebies are ending, you have seven days to claim this for keeps. They also announce the free game that will take its place next Thursday as Crying Suns. Here's a bit on what to expect from Jurassic World Evolution, keeping in mind, of course, the variances caused by chaos theory:
Take charge of operations on the legendary islands of the Muertes archipelago and bring the wonder, majesty and danger of dinosaurs to life. Build for Science, Entertainment or Security interests in an uncertain world where life always finds a way.

Bioengineer dinosaurs that think, feel and react intelligently to the world around them. Play with life itself to give your dinosaurs unique behaviors, traits and appearances, then contain and profit from them to fund your global search for lost dinosaur DNA.

Control the big picture with deep management tools or go hands-on to confront challenges on the ground or in the air. Expand your islands and choose your own journey in an all-new narrative featuring iconic characters from across the franchise and decades of Jurassic lore at your fingertips.

This bowling simulation features online PvP multiplayer, 26 simulated pro players, over 150 balls from which to choose, and the ability to "bowl as your favorite pro," though none of them seem to be The Dude or Jesus Quintana. Either way, I still don't roll on Shabbos. Here's a trailer and a description:

Out of the Blue

Happy New Year's Eve! We're planning a quiet evening at home here in the BlueTower. This is not actually a concession to the pandemic. MrsBlue and I are traditionally not into heading out for the occasion, and I'm not sure we have actually ever attended a New Year's party in all the years we've been together. Some buddies have suggested we do a virtual get-together later, which would actually make this a more social New Year's Eve for us than usual. That's at least as ironic as a fly in your chardonnay. I will probably make a foray out into the world to pick up something special for dinner. I hope you all have plans that are equally appealing, that you stay safe, and your balls drop on schedule.
