Teaser: No Man’s Sky
It says something about the scale and scope of this game that after wandering around an entire procedurally generated planet for a large part of this trailer I was actually kinda disappointed when the gigantic space battles show up. Sometimes a guy just wants to get in a spaceship and explore the universe old school Star Trek style.

Confirmed: Telltale’s Making A Game of Thrones Series
And in a second piece of video game news some of my non-gamer friends might actually care about, the studio that made a Walking Dead game better than the Walking Dead show is going to make a Game of Thrones game that’s…probably not better than the show because that show’s really good.

Light-up wizard hoodie transforms its wearer into a Technomancer
Now just give this thing a way to talk to your Google Glass and LARPing will be…well not cool exactly but at least overly complicated and that’s something.

Marvel has confirmed that Drew Goddard will run the show on Netflix’s Daredevil series.
Man after S.H.I.E.L.D. I’m trying not to get my hopes up about this but the new netflix deal is making all the right moves in a way where I’m finding it really hard to remain cynical about this.

Emergent Behavior, Surreal Photos of Groups of Everyday Objects Hovering in Nature
Man the world would be way more interesting if all our junk just self-organized into flocks of useless trash that attacked us when we went into the forrest. Not saying it’d be better but it would be way more interesting.

On the 96th Anniversary of the Halifax Explosion
I…was not aware this was a thing. I had heard of theHalifax Explosion before but assumed it was one of those things Canada wanted to talk about but we didn’t for good reason like hockey or whatever the whole deal was with them gaining independence from England.

Femslash Fridays: Come On, Grab Your Friends
A brief overview of the Marceline/Princess-Bubblegum relationship that is legitimately the only romantic pairing in Adventure Time I am at all invested in. Sorry protagonist and your ex-girlfriend that is literally made of fire. Sorry magical dog and your rainbow/unicorn kinda-wife. Sorry gender reversed versions of all those relationships that also exist in canon due to the fan-fiction of the Ice King. Sorry all the other even weirder minor relationships on this show including a pig and a tiny elephant that makes really great pies. Man the longer I go on with this bit the happier I am that somebody wrote up something explaining what the fuck with Marceline and Princess Bubblegum.

The First Drones, Used in World War I
Drones are super old you guys. Radio control was one of the first things we ever thought to do with radio. Cleopatra was born closer to the moon landings than the building of the pyramids. Time is not linear as we have traditionally understood it but an expression of the accretion of entropy in a universe that is, from a certain perspective, all happening at once. Also in WWI they essentially had pre-programmed smart-bombs in the shape of planes but they sorta sucked at their jobs so that was that.
