New Star Wars Jedi Game Seemingly Revealed

Following the news that Stig Asmussen is leaving Electronic Arts comes news that a third game is in the works for the Star Wars Jedi series that Asmussen helped create. VGC reports this based on comments made by Cal Kestis actor Cameron Monaghan during a Comic Con panel. Actors are frequently the source of leaks that are unreliable, as the same outsider status that allows them to blab contributes to less understanding of how things operate. In this case, Monaghan comes right out and says he's currently doing work for the project:
During a panel at Ocala Comic Con, Monaghan said: “We’re working on a third and we’re in the process of doing that right now.

“That’s a big undertaking and there have been some conversations so far, but hopefully when all things and said and done we’ll be able to go in and make something really cool.”

Depthris Released

Depthris is now available for Windows on Steam. This offers a first-person take on the classic game of Tetris (thanks Mod DB via Ant). We've seen First-Person Tetris before, but this takes this to a whole new dimension, as seen in this trailer. Here's word:
Depthris is a 3D puzzle game inspired by the classic BlockOut game for DOS. Move and rotate the pieces along the 3 axes (except backwards) and aim for the highest score.

Features
4 game modes:

  • Classic: Play the game with the classic puzzle pieces of the 2D puzzle game Tetris.
  • Relaxing: Same as Classic mode but you will not level up, the fall speed will not change.
  • Challenging: Classic with some new pieces that can trick your brain.
  • Insane: Challenging mode plus new pieces that increase the difficulty to a new level.

Out of the Blue

Intermittent bugs can be so difficult. My buddy RedAnt calls them Gremlins, after the term coined by World War II airmen. They don't reproduce on demand, so it can be difficult to know if things are fixed as you troubleshoot and test solutions. That said, I'm entirely convinced the crashing issue I was encountering was solved, simply by swapping my two RAM sticks as I described. My rig passed an extended memory benchmark and I've had a few lengthy sessions in Diablo IV and it seems obvious that this issue is behind me. The only problem I was having other than crashes were these occasional odd USB resets. I suspect those are cleared up as well, but they were even more intermittent, so I won't have the same level of confidence I'm past them for a while longer. Thanks to those who offered tips along the way, and hats off to those who called this as a RAM issue from the start.

Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
