Oh, finally got X-Com: Enemy Within.
So, word. Let's get some subterfuge on. Cool

Enemy Within was sooooo last year.  It's all about the Long War mod now, followed by complaints about Firaxis needing to "fix their game".  Roll Eyes

Seriously, though, GLHF with it.  Try the Kinetic Strike Module at least once, eh?

In other news, Bayonetta 2 allows Bayonetta to cosplay as multiple Nintendo characters.  Confirmed are Link, Samus, Princess Peach... oh, and Fox McCloud.

...

Nope, still not getting a WiiU.  Nice try, though.

...

Suddenly I'm wishing for a StarFox game using Vanquish's gameplay.  Oh well, at least we know there is one coming.

Yeah, a molten salt reactor can run off lower neutron densities and can burn waste from light water reactors.

Yes, but can it reverse the polarity?   Wink

In video game news, have you pet your Xeno-Titan lately?

There are also a bunch of let's plays from gamescom for Civ: BE loading on Youtube.

And speaking of digital downloads, would you believe that it's carbon footprint is actually bigger than just bulk shipping retail disks?

Y'know, adding this to the news that our solar power plants set the entire avian kingdom literally on fire, and I'm starting to think that humanity can't seem to win the whole environment issue.  Tongue

Don't know if anyone's linked this guy before, but a guy called "Ten Second Songs" does these "Songs in 20 different styles" type videos where he sings covers of songs in the styles of 20 different singers, alternating throughout.

Dark Horse
Talk Dirty
Problem
Linkin Park's "In the End" (my favorite)

World of Warcraft is supposedly completely free for this month.  Don't know if that includes expansions.

Hmm..
Nope, not here.

Well then to heck with that.  Tongue

Guess what book I gooooot?  Small hint: it's literally named the subject we're talking about.  Grin

A few things:
1.) The book hinges entirely on prior knowledge of Star Trek, so it doesn't even really bother itself with descriptions.  What do the characters look like?  No clue, your just supposed to assume that they are just like what you'd expect.  This got annoying whenever a character is introduced by name, but it's the type where you don't know if the character is male or female until a few lines have been said.
2.) The book loves skipping over action scenes.  It does have a few, but most tend to be glossed over completely.

3.) The book can get a bit dirty in points.

But other than that, read through it in one go, and loved it.  It also brings up some great points about the trope in general. (And some other tropes besides, which I'll mention because they are so true)

But yeah, pick up the book and give it a look.

Larry Correia, between Monster Hunter International and the Grimnoir Chronicles, he's demonstrated the chops to do everything needed for some good world-wide zombie, with a USA focus, madness.

Big +1 on Correia, though he's already got game hooks in the HERO system.

Under the same publishing roof, John Ringo, a guy known for his military SF chops.  Also currently doing his own zombie apocalypse story where humanity isn't completely wiped out.  Also rather... infamous for some things.  Oh, John Ringo, no...

So, you can get Link in Mario Kart 8 in a new DLC.  Bound to happen sooner or later, really.

The usual ways:  Running locals out of your embassy, honey pots, ELINT, "thousand grains of sand" if there is significant movement of people.


Well that's a boring answer if I ever heard it. Tongue Wink

So here's an interesting subject: So covert ops are in the game, and work in general to how they did in Civ 5 with some tweaks.  And it turns out ARC, the one with this symbol, are the spy specialists.  Who knew?  Roll Eyes

The question is: how would that work cross-Affinity?  The first two levels, sure, when humans are still like they are today, with some slight ideological differences.  But when level three roles around, and those ideals kick into full on modification of the human body?  How would spying work then?  Would Purity spies go full on borg to fit in with the Supremacy population?  What if they then are moved to a Harmony city afterwards?

I mean, of course makeup technology would probably advance to the point where you could fake being modified a certain way, but I'm curious how the smart "spy" people of these boards would approach something like that.  And you don't have be Purity when theorizing.  How would Harmony spy on Supremacy, and vice versa?

If they really wanted to use that body type for the female hamsteroids they should have used the red carpet male hamsters.

Still would have been skeevy, but at least it would have been equal opportunity.

Just to elaborate, what I meant was I wish they used that filming tech to create fox girls for something.

Alternatively, I could have just titled that "furry bait".

But anyway, ask yourselves this: what was the gender of the pet hamsters before zapping?

... Wish they did a version of this for "What Does the Fox Say".

Queue silence from the forum...

Late to the party me got Civ 5 complete collection the other day.  I always wonder if the game can read me, cause I started up a second American run (have to get the B17 achievement) on large Terra, and I started right next to THREE fox fur tiles, with another FOUR within settling distance.  Even lucked out on faith to start a pantheon with Goddess of the Hunt, so I got a lot of food out of it.  Naturally, once I got a religion, I named it Foxism.  Smiley
