Out of the Blue

Congrats to the Golden State and their fans for their NBA championship. Also, hats off to Chicago on the Stanley Cup... To relate this to my local teams in these sports, the Warriors have as many championships as the Knicks and the Rangers combined, while the Blackhawks have 50% more titles than both teams.

Championship Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Eye-Ball Shaun.
Bunny Flags 2.
Stories: Sir John Hurt diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Thanks nin.
FDA follows through on its plan to ban trans fats.
Media: What happens when you drop a can of Coke into liquid nitrogen. Thanks nin.
Watch woman limbo under car.
Ultimate Funny Dogs Compilation. Thanks nin. Bonus: Dog evades justice. Batdog.

So, had I dinner tonight with a fellow gamer (and he's married to one of my sisters) -- asked him what he was playing lately -- blah blah -- then he mentioned a game he said when it came out he might have to buy a PS4 to play it. I had to have him repeat the name of the game a couple of times, "No Man's Sky" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Man's_Sky

I figured I had just overlooked it here, but if there are any articles on it, I can't find them. Is it really that un-news worthy?

Come on over to r/ps4, it comes up there all the time. Though I believe they said today it will have a PC launch as well.

Also, Blue's search engine chokes on 3 letter words, which I suspect is part of the problem. Like this, not showing up in the search (despite being on the front page):

Blue, SCS Reveals American Truck Simulator. The link is to their Steam page where they announced it and it includes a Youtube teaser trailer.

Off topic interjection, but after reading some political tidbits (I know totally boring on a gaming site) today it seems like every passing day in the USoD (United States of Dysfunction) is like watching an episode of "House of Cards." Poignant I guess. Ex: The White House allied itself with Republicans and are still trying to pass TPP & Janet Yellen banned a reporter for asking "difficult questions."

Although it wasn't mentioned in the article as one of his credits, he played the best Caligula ever in I Claudius. Thumbsup

I was really hoping the Lightning would take it to game 7 but I'm amazed they got that far, Chicago is definitely a dynasty team. I think they'll be broken up due to salary cap concerns next year but man, what a well rounded team.
