A selection of sizzling links.
570 Bars: I know a guy who knows these guys. Actually, wait… I know one of them. Anyway. There are apparently some five hundred and seventy bars where I live, and they’ve been to 119 and climbing.
Battletech!: I was directed to this (very exciting) open source project, designed to recreate tabletop Battletech, which should excite you if you have any human emotions whatsoever. They’ve done a hell of a job. The version available for download has some errors that make some mechs not work right, for which there is a replacement data file.
Umbrella Terror: Umbrellas appear to have hijacked Penny Arcade as a conversation topic every day this week, which is too close to Philistine Continuity (spit) for my liking. Hopefully, the horrifying imagery in this news story will snap us out of it. When I first read this story, I was like, “Foreigners are hilarious,” and then I noticed two things. For one, this is the second umbrella murder in as many months. For two, murder is not a task your standard umbrella is accustomed to. I doubt that the procedure could be described as pleasant.
Raven Shield Interview: This one is over at Elited, and I thought it was a good one. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t talked more about this game, as it’s one I think about a lot. I think it has the potential to get a grip on my whole crew, so it’s something I keep an eye on.
Boyarm: You know, I really have no idea.
