Out of the Blue

Having made the generous mistake of giving some away, we are actually almost done with the gallon of chili I made just over a week ago. This prompted a painful discussion over whether this meant the next batch should be larger, so it lasts longer, or smaller, so we don't end up consuming an entire cow over a very short span. Of course we could formulate a plan that involved a more moderate approach to consuming the chili, but I think we know that's not realistic.

Moderate Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Epic War Saga.
Links: The Blues Have It. Excelsior! Thanks j.c.f.
21 Videogames Begging to Be Made into Movies. Thanks scorcese.fan.
Stories: Stephen Colbert to Make 'Hobbit' Cameo.
Science: Bioengineered corn can digest itself in the name of biofuels.
Media: Iron Man 3 Trailer.
Lo Pan Style (Gangnam Style Parody). Thanks Mark.
Bus Station Sonata.
Follow-up: Combined pesticide exposure affects bumblebee colony success.

Oh, and Hotline Miami is downloading right now. I see Jaguar grabbed it - any comments? Thinking I will indulge this evening....

I don't get the attraction to 8 bit games. I've spent $1000s over the last 20 years trying to upgrade my hardware to get away from 8 bit graphics, so I feel no nostalgia to return. Can someone enlighten me?


Fun is fun regardless of the graphics.


Except if the graphics are a major distraction to an individual, then fun is not "fun regardless of graphics".

Semantics? Maybe but I generally tend to agree. Why pay for 8 bit graphics as a major point when you can download ROMs and emulators for free?

They made Heimdall and Nick Fury black so why not? It's not like comics don't retcon all the time.

Guild Wars seems to be getting a huge patch, not sure when it released as I haven't logged in for about a week.

Edit: Monday release.

I'm tempted to grab that, but I have no idea when I'll get to play it...after a week off from BL2, its grabbed my attention again.

Sidenote - where does one find the DLC? I've not noticed any quests leading me to it yet.

edit: And no soundtrack edition on HM, dammit!

Hay guys - FYI

A friend of mine wants to back Carmageddon:Reincarnation on Kickstarter but it's closed?

Don't panic! Our Kickstarter campaign has ended but we are currently taking PayPal pledges with a slightly different set of reward tiers. Send your friend over to carmageddon.com/paypal-pledges and they can select a reward tier and pay with PayPal.

CHEERS!

Looks like a standard action movie trailer to me. Biggest worry is you've just seen the best parts.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

Stephen Colbert to Make 'Hobbit' Cameo.

Cool, but considering PJ himself made a cameo in each of the other movies, I'm more curious where he'll pop up this time.
