The move to flash drives is a good one. With the move to more compact computer cases, I've generally given up the optical drive in my PCs (and while the cases will take slim slot-loading drives, those are expensive)

The only reason why I even keep one around at all is the occasional music cd rip, or (maddeningly) when I need to get drivers and the vendor failed to provide downloads.

I haven't seen a PC without USB since the 90s.

Oh. Wow. I'm definitely checking those out. As a big fan of both Serious Sam and VR, I've put the games in my cart many times, but never pulled the trigger.

The important question is:
Is it made by AtGames?


If so, then there's zero reason to get excited.
If not... I'll wait for the reviews. I wouldn't mind a Genesis box, since I had one when I was a kid.

Sounds like they have a case.
CIG/RSI never should have agreed to such terms. Imagine if Duke Nukem Forever was in development for as long as it was, but released in 2011 using the Quake 2 engine... Wait a minute. That might have been better than what we actually got.

I've been looking at this one for a long time, but early access and the low number of players scared me off.

Judging from the store page now, it looks like it's reasonably close to finished, and it has a nice boost in player base right now.

Probably a decent time to finally check it out.

I once had an egg pop in my mouth. It was about as much fun as one would expect.

Well, at least the negative reviews so far have mostly been about issues that are patchable. Hopefully they fix it.

Re: YouTube battery drain:
I’ve been using version 12.41 and have had problems with it draining the battery while not in use, but according to the article, only 12.42 and 12.43 were affected...

Well, here’s hoping that it fixes it...

I 'membered the original Flight Unlimited being a showcase title back in the day. This... I'd feel ashamed to have it in my account.

Ick. The worst part of the time change is when you aren’t able to sleep through it.

I woke up at the first 1am, had the clock run back to 1am again an hour later.
...and was still awake after 4.

Finally got some sleep, but woke up at used-to-be-7-but-is-now-6

Woo. Facing the first day of dreary winter time on 4 hours of sleep.

The end of DST is very much losing an hour to me, since it means that I’ll be in the office an hour later every night, and will no longer get an hour of sunlight after work. Now it’s maybe a few minutes, if I leave early.

Uck. Can’t we just stay on DST year round?

//And that’s ignoring the fact that I’ve been getting tired and waking up too early... My body would love the clocks to spring forward!

And remember:
If there's anyone on the service that you don't like and they killed you in game, after a match with them, just say that you're a Twitch streamer and they stream sniped you.

They did add bot matches recently in the co-op team deathmatch mode. Though the AI is rather bad.

I liked Chivalry but never got around to trying this one (I was usually busy the times that they had free weekends)

Gonna give it a try this weekend. Probably.

No Citizen's Sky?

Well, at least one can say that they've been pretty open about Star Citizen's progress (even if it isn't going as hoped and is becoming massively bloated)

...All I wanted was a new single-player Wing Commander game

This pretty much looks like exactly the kind of game that I want.
Space battles. Capital ships. Not bogged down by economy sims that I don't care about.

It's pretty cheap, so I'll give it a shot.

Wow. I wish that I could say that I was surprised, but after renting the upstairs of a house and having the downstairs tenant insisting having the heater at ludicrous levels and talking about nearly freezing to death while I was baking and had big boxes over every heater vent... then I found out it was because they left the window open and never thought to check. This was after a month, in November.

After that, no example of human stupidity will surprise me. Or at least that's what I want to believe.

When I was a kid, I liked getting rare denominations like both kinds of dollar coins, 2 dollar bills, and even had some old coins like the nickel one cent coins.

Maybe part of it was too many open beta events. I certainly had had my fill of the game before it even officially came out.
