By the same guy that abandoned support for Stardrive for Stardrive II which was then abandoned for this. I wouldn't waste the money.

My female voice pick? Heidi Ernest, the voice of Karan S'jet from the first Homeworld.

Male voice would be Campbell Lane, the voice of the Bentusi and the Narrator.

Looks like a mobile game. On the other hand, it will run on my laptop, which is good since my desktop is dead and waiting for Corsair to process my memory lifetime guarantee.

I wish you far better luck than I experienced with Corsair's RMA process.

Bummer. I listened to Hybrid Theory just the other day after not having listened to it in years.

($23 for a pound of fucking deli meat!) I guess Jeff Bezos knows better than I.
Don't waste money on your meat. http://www.patakmeats.com/Price_List.html

$3.49/pound for Boudin?! What the fuck are they smoking?!

Prime Day was very kind to me. I snagged a Yubi Key 4 for dirt cheap and I had been wanting one for quite a while.

Hey Blue, the ASUS XG-C100C NIC isn't a motherboard, it's just a NIC.

For way Over-The-Top gun movies I gotta go with 'Shoot 'Em Up'. Your eyes literally won't stop rolling until the end credits but the ridiculousness of the action and general absurdity of the movie made me enjoy it more than any grown man really should admit

Not to mention the extremely sublime Monica Bellucci as a wet nurse.

I am going to sit VR out until the following happens:

1. It's comfortable to wear if you have a wide face and therefore wide glasses.
2. The price becomes more reasonable/Product becomes mainstream to the point it's a commodity item.
3. There's a standard that all devices adhere to so that there are just VR games, not VR games for the Rift and VR games for the Vive and so on.

Just to help you a bit: I am so old, I even owned a Pong console before my Atari 2600. Yes, I am REALLY that old.

That was just a wee bit before my time, but my Dad had one of the molded fiberglass arcade cabinets in the garage next to the Microdata 800 mainframe.

We old geezers should form a Blue's News Survivors group or something.

It's definitely one of the first I remember playing on my Atari 800. We're old men in this crowd.

Atari 800? What the hell is this? Some newish artsy fartsy stuff? Is my Atari 2600 not good enough for you, you damned hipster?

B...b...but the 2600 doesn't have a floppy drive!

But there was an Atari console that did! The Atari XEGS was the half console/half computer hybrid. (finally found the name online) My friends had Nintendos and I had that. If anyone doesn't know what it was you should google it and admire it in all of it's pastel colors and big button glory. As luck would have it, it turns 25 years old this year as it was released in 87.

Damn..25 years...jeezus...

Holy Hell! NOW I REMEMBER THAT! I saw exactly ONE in a store and that was at a store that specialized in Atari PCs, software, and peripherals.

Yeah, 35 years is a loooooong time ago in the computing age. Still wish I had my 1024 STE though. Of all the computers I have ever owned, that one felt so awesome and high tech.

With MadCatz going out of business I hope Razer decides to start making joysticks.

God, I hope not. I have been arguing with them for weeks now about a faulty left mouse button on a Deathaddr Chroma that is a known hardware problem that they willfully blow off and ignore.

Ditto, Jivaro! I had every Atari computer up to the Falcon. Though, by the time of the Falcon, the writing was on the wall and I also had an XT PC.

Old man Eidolon disapproves of these shenanigans.

So pleased I wasn't the only one who immediately thought of this. I think that may actually be the first game I played on a home computer.

It's definitely one of the first I remember playing on my Atari 800. We're old men in this crowd.
