Congrats to Charlie Jane Anders for her Nebula award. I always enjoyed her stuff at IO9, but when I saw that she had a couple of stories in last year's Best Sci Fi Shorts Anthology I was skeptical. I assumed she got in because of her connections. But her stories were not only really good but completely different in both content and style. Good stuff.

Also congrats to Denis for his Arrival award. Well deserved. He's the only reason I am looking forward to the new Blade Runner.

i gotta say i'm not thrilled about the trailers. too shooty-shooty-bang-bang for me. bladerunner was never about action. one of its chief criticisms when it came out was that it was too slow in fact. bladecrawler some called it. i hope he didn't adjust it for the ADD millennial crowd, but the trailers sure look like it.

Im going to make an educated guess and say that it's not an alien megalithic structure that's causing the dip in the star's brightness.
Occam's razor says it's aliens. Obviously.
I wish it would turn out to be aliens, because it would be so damn cool/interesting/terrifying. The "broken up planet" idea I heard recently didn't seem like too far of a stretch...

not likely. even a massive planet like jupiter would only dim a star by less than 1%. breaking it up would dim it even less.

the modern day stuff will always be there - it's a central frame narrative of the story; you don't get the past stuff without the DNA reader doohickey. genetic memory is one of the main themes of the series and if you don't have that, you're just playing prince of persia.

i'm glad they took time off from the yearly releases. it was getting super stale with the collection quests and cookie cutter missions x1000. allegedly this will be more of a free form, user chosen game. i hope so.

i feel like you guys have never seen an OLED monitor before. the picture quality is STUNNING. and unless you're a pro gamer, 60hz/fps is plenty. even bleeding edge machines can barely top 60fps at 4k anyway.

overbooking should be straight up illegal. they shouldn't be allowed to sell something they don't have, which is a seat on the plane once it's fully booked up. it's flat out choosing greed over people.

sigh... remind me not to buy anymore games on launch day. in the other post they also said they'd implement better customization features for the character creator in the next two months. i ain't touching the game again until that shit's in.

those are some pretty impressive hardware specs (for a console). the major thing i think no one is seeing yet is that it can play 4k blurays. there's a small but growing a/vphile market there that ps4pro completely missed the boat on by not including 4k playback. i think that segment will power scorpio sales as much as gamers and blow ps4pro out of the water.

this makes no sense. the law is by definition public domain isn't it?if you can copyright the law, you might as well sue the world for copying the constitution.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare has the best first person melee combat out of any game ever made, period. So before you go saying how terrible it was, show me a game that did it better...you can't. My only complaint was the "ballerina" spinning sword attacks, but I only occasionally get beat by someone using them, the majority of the time it backfires since they turn their back to you to do it. No other game has come close to matching the skill and fluidity of sword fighting however, with being able to block, parry, riposte, etc, using a wide variety of weapons.

That being said, this new game actually does look pretty terrible. Will have to wait and play it, but until then it doesn't look very enticing.

You never played Jedi Knight Outcast or Academy did you?

he's not wrong. i played those, am a huge star wars nerd, and as a mindless sword-and-hammer masher, chilvary can't be beat.

fascinating article, although it doesn't really explain how patent law can restrict a person's usage rights after purchase. patents only cover design, not usage, no?

you can still avoid paying tax by looking for smaller retailers that don't have a physical presence in your state. i tend to avoid newegg unless they have unbeatable deals since they're based in cali. this is still true if you buy off amazon marketplace as long as the seller is out of state. i bought an $800 monitor off marketplace last xmas and paid no tax on it.

it really is amazing how english has never come up with a neutral singular pronoun even though there's basically always been a need. and using 'they' for that just trips my OCD.

the russia ones are way more entertaining
Give 'em a break -- if you lived in Russia you'd want to be drunk all the time too...

The running red, following a changed yellow is something I see WAY TOO often. People need to slow the fuck down. And this is from someone who used to, on Interstates, routinely drive 15 mph over the speed limit. Now the speed limit is 70, a little less...

so you still do 80, it's just slightly more legal XD

what the fuck? most people who are going to play this haven't beaten it yet, but htey're releasing time-limited MP story missions? i cant play this shit cuz i dno't want the SP campaign spoiled!

I beat it last night...honestly unless people are trying to do a lot of the side stuff and/or viability to 100%, you could make due with 18-20 hours for the main campaign.

there are also a lot of people like me who are completionists and try to do everything in one playthrough.
