And let's be clear, Rus: the Patriots were no slouches, but that victory was all about the Seahawks self-destructing as much as it was about Brady's impressive passing.

Oh to be sure, but you got to give that rookie credit.  I get the feeling he'd been practicing against that slant a million times, and when he saw that formation, he dived for it.  That wide receiver looked awful surprised as he was flung back.

Gearbox has prettied up two of the best RTS games ever.

The Mothership is standing by.

Hiigara, home.

I loved the original Homeworld back in the day.  The campaign was great and I would put hours into skirmishes on Hyperspace Arena.

I did not care for Homeworld 2 though.  I much prefer the original.  Though, the Homeworld 2 Complex mod is interesting and adds a lot.

I notice that Homeworld: Cataclysm is not part of the pack.  Maybe because it was not made by Relic?  Not that Cataclysm was particularly good, the AI had so many problems.

Apparently the source code was lost.

This also means that Shipbreakers is officially part of the Homeworld... um... er... world.

Gearbox Would "Love" to Re-Release Homeworld: Cataclysm

Yup.  Source code was lost.

That the epitome of a 3-dice Error.
Snapped, checked, could have done anything else and did it wrong.
All my Shocked, Wilson.

That said, absolutely epic game.
Maybe the most worthy Superbowl I've ever seen.
#respectknuckles to the Patriots.

SEAHAWKS use history repeats super catch.  It's super effective!

PATRIOTS use rookie in the right place at the right time.  SEAHAWKS has been defeated!

Yeah, though.  Compared to last year's "Epic Broncos Faceplant", this deserves to be call a Superbowl.

Now that that's over, Buffalo Bills for Superbowl 50!

So, Stars and Stripes Raynor's flavor text reads as thus:

While the United States Space Force successfully rescued their colonists from the Koprulu sector, Colonel James Raynor couldn't shake the feeling those monsters would follow them to Earth.

And the general reaction is "haha, look at that guy, all covered in the American flag and everything", in a generally friendly way.  Wink wink, nudge nudge, Team America World Police reference.

The thing its, when you think about it: how many space sci-fi settings do you know where a modern nation is a major driving force in general.  Sure, we have multinational collectives, we have expies with the serial numbers barely scratched off, and we have complete replacements.  But how many can you name off the top of your head that has America, Great Britain, Russia (in whatever form), China, etc. still going on about their independent business, only the business has spread out into outer space?

I'm willing to bet you can only use one hand to count: Aliens (United States Colonial Authority), a tabletop game based on Aliens... and I'm blanking at the moment.  Civ: BE's factions are close, since they are still regional, but they are also multinational. Halo's UNSC and Mass Effect's Alliance has the nations essentially turn over all control to this overarching collective, so they don't count.

I mean, sure, it would make sense that once humanity reaches the stars, the world will be different than it is today.  However, one thing people forget is that, while Great Britain is not nearly as powerful as it was 200 years ago, it still exists, and is still a player in the global arena.  And sure, it will probably be better for nations to pool their resources if we hope to make it to the stars, but it is possible for us to go there while still maintaining our current national identities.  Might not be likely, but its possible.

What are your thoughts on the subject?

The one inescapable criteria for birth timing is the physical ability to get the little parasite out through the bottom of the pelvis; that's why a baby's skull plates aren't fused, so the head can be squished around that problematically large brain a bit to facilitate the process. Remove that literal bottleneck via artificial womb and extending gestation time shouldn't be a particular problem
Bypass the pelvis bottleneck and up the available nutrient supply, and you could be looking at some very large and late newborns.  Which probably would work well for everyone.

At least, until situations force a more natural birthing process...  and when the fate of an entire race is at play, one can never be to sure that that won't happen.

Was checking out Steam storefront the other day, and this interesting game was recommended for me: Halfway

Best way to describe it?  16-bit XCOM Event Horizon.  Might give it a look.

Like I said, though, there are other ways to get gold.  Daily quests range from 200 to 800 a pop ("play 2 games as [franchise] hero" vs "Play 8 games in any mode" respectively), and leveling a hero to 5 gets you 500 gold.  Player levels also get you gold, though I will have to double check what they give you, and there's only three or four levels that actually do that.
