Out of the Blue

Happy birthday to dedicated Blue's News contributor Console General, who has submitted a plethora (thousands, perhaps?) of links under a few different nicknames over the years. His correspondence comes from Australia, so here's a celebration of all things Down Under in his honor. Enjoy CG, hopefully the celebrations don't involve any chunder.

Thunderful Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

Nick Fuentes pushed it. That should tell you all you need to know.

I bought one for Mrs. Burrito as a joke, years ago. Long before I had ever heard of Nick Fuentes.

I assumed it had as much weight as my ordination in the Universal Life Church.
Your ordination in the Universal Life Church carries more weight.

I was so completely unaware of this, the link title made no sense to me...

I first saw it a month or so ago when watching some YouTube video, pimping it as a sponsor. I usually start skipping forward as soon as I hear "this video is sponsored by...", but I must not have been quick enough because I watched the pitch. I remember thinking WTF, that has to be a scam. Glad to know I was right.

Gary Larson's Far Side Predicted The Future Of Video Games.

I don't really watch other people play unless it's a Let's Play for a game I'm considering picking up. That said, I've seen a few StarCraft pros play SCII, and some of the things they are able to do are simply jaw-dropping.

Had the excellent luck today of finally trying a Steam *free game* :
-"Beetle Hunter"-
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1166540/Beetle_Hunter/?l=english
May interest somebody:
It's a scifi-nightmarish dungeon FPS.
And it is a killer, couldn't put it down, played absorbedly nonstop till I finished it in 5 hours.
Instant favorite for me.
Graphics are good, except the ascii map: "%" marks stairs. "@" is the hero.

Very hard so Cheat engined:
All Ammos, (G)renades, (H)ealth potions, (F)reeze foes, etc, are 4 bytes, Exact Value, very easy to find.
Changed values to 99,000 for each type.
Health is Float, rounded to zero, but real value only coincides with screen value when maxed, changed after a hit, or on a hero level change. Used 99,000 too.

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
