Good point, the lower pressure probably is a contributing factor, although I don't recall them ever saying that.

Definitely. It's one of the main reasons why Astronauts constantly exercise on the space station.

Strange, only on bluesnews is low pressure even mentioned when it comes to exercising astronauts. Someone better tell NASA! http://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/astronauts/living-exercising.asp
TLDR

Yeah, strange.

Yep, low pressure was not mentioned once.

I realize this. If you blindly search the article for "air pressure", "air", or "pressure" you won't find it in the article. That's irrelevant. The entire article is taking about microgravity - which causes no air pressure in space - and its effects on blood including anemia, infections, and fucking blood clots... which is what we were talking about initially.

Sometimes I wonder about you RedEye.

Even if Chairman Roberts could pull that off in order to achieve those "large scale battles" everyone would need a $4,000 computer and a 100Mbps broadband connection; not to mention the servers would need to be extra beefy to handle the load. This is why most developers go for the lowest common denominator. A nice blend of fidelity and realistic expectations.

"Exercise is known to boost endorphins (those “feel good” chemicals), improve mental performance, and shape physical appearance. Humans may “feel” and “see” the effects of consistent exercise but the benefits go much deeper than that."

"The data gathered from this experiment will contribute more information to explain why astronauts experience space flight anemia (change in red blood cells), susceptibility to infections (change in white blood cells), and blood clots (platelets) in space. Similar conditions have been found on Earth in people with decreased mobility, confined to prolonged periods of bed rest, or with aging."

“One important component of the investigation is looking at reversibility, whether bone marrow composition returns to preflight levels and blood cell production recovers once crews return to Earth or land on another planet,” said Trudel. “The results from this investigation could guide the search for specific countermeasures, such as exercise, or pharmacological or genetic treatments, as well as preventative interventions.”

Yeah, strange.

Cutter wrote on Feb 29, 2016, 12:25:
I hate Leap Years. Why would you put an extra day in the worst month of the year? Why not in a good month like July or October? It's all arbitrary anyway.

All the other months have 30 or 31 days, but February suffered from the ego of Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus, says Ian Stewart, emeritus professor of mathematics at Warwick University. Under Julius Caesar, February had 30 days, but when Caesar Augustus was emperor he was peeved that his month - August - had only 29 days, whereas the month named after his predecessor Julius - July - had 31. "He pinched a couple of days for August to make it the same as July. And it was poor old February that lost out."

Also in Roman mythology Venus was the goddess of love, sex, beauty, and fertility. And in astronomy from about February 11 to 15, Venus and Mercury (another ancient Roman God) will be close enough together on the sky's dome to fit – or nearly fit – into the same view. Perhaps the extra day every four years was the Roman's way of giving birth to a new day in the month of Venus as an apology for their egocentric Caesars.

McGovern's death was believed to be caused by a blood clot resulting from a transatlantic flight.

OK, that's plenty scary. Always get up and move around on those long flights!

You hear about these things every now and then, and each time I wonder if I was ever close to killing myself with long gaming sessions. There have been several times I've been so enthralled with a game I sat still playing it easily as long as an international flight...

Yeah, I've had a few raid sessions that went waaay too long. I think one was 12 hours...(that was pretty much the final straw, though)


You're likely not raiding at 12,000 feet either.

The combination of lack of moment and altitude probably has something to do with it.

Definitely. Even gamers get up and move around if nothing else to use the restroom and eat. Sitting for an entire transatlantic flight is a resume for death. o _ o

On a side note I decided to pass on Master of Orion and picked up Stardew Valley instead. Stardew Valley is AWESOME! It's like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past meets Harvest Moon meets Animal Crossing! So fun. Graphics are cute especially when you get a pet and some farm animals.

Besides that I'm really getting into Star Trek Online. Really enjoy the episodic nature of each mission. Also enjoying The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. The graphics are decent but it's really cool to put yourself in the mind of Sherlock Holmes and see how he deduces a crime scene.

Stardew Valley 10/10
Star Trek Online 8/10
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes 8/10

I recommend all these games if you're looking for something new to play.

Why would Vivendi even attempt this? Ubisoft is definitely NOT Blizzard. Oh well it's their loss (literally)...

Assassin's Creed. Their hedging their bet on the resurgence of films based on video games. They may have the same success as comic books had for comic book films. Owning the publisher behind one of the most popular franchises in video game history is worth a hostile takeover.

Vivindi has a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders to show growth and profitability by any means necessary within the constraints of law. In the case of "the lesser of two evils" from an investor point of view I would side with Vivindi.

In principle you should always choose the lesser of two evils.

Yeah, but which one is the lesser evil?

That's up to you to decide.

Master of Orion is out on Steam. Going to wait a day or two before making a decision to buy or pass. So far the reviews look Very Positive with 86% of the 122 user reviews for this game being positive.

Except you can't actually purchase it right now on Steam or GOG. That sentence seems to imply that you will get access on the 26th if you have already purchased the game.

Shitty marketing.

It means when you buy it on February 26th you get to play it on February 26th. I don't know how this could sound confusing.
