    Read and hear its magnificence. A clear timeline at the top. Genres grouped in a cladistic tree, with splits shown in time. Dozens of sample tracks *per year* for each genre. Not just a paragraph describing each genre but an essay, some including Ishkur's own mixes (see Chicago House). Click...

    R-Type Final 2

    Granzella (of whom I've never heard) is currenly running a Kickstarter campaign to update R-Type Final to modern consoles. The campaign length is only seven days, which makes me think the creators don't understand that getting buzz takes time. The project goal is a bit over $400000, but...

    converting saved thread URLs to the new format

    Do you save forum threads for later reference or amusement? Has the new forum software broken all those links? That happened to me, but I figured out how to deal with it, so I hope this will be of use to other folks. The old thread URL format looked like this...

    Consentacle: cooperative card game of human-alien intimacy

    I found out about this game years ago, asked Naomi Clark about it at GaymerX a couple years ago, and just discovered a Kickstarter project for printing the game has been launched. The project has already met its goal and blown past all the initial stretch goals (they added a new goal for an...

    Shadow Warrior free at Humble Store right now

    You have 45 hours to get Shadow Warrior free at the Humble Store. Normally it's $50. Supports Windows, Mac and Linux, delivered as a Steam key. The LRR folks were more entertained by it than expected, and at that price it's hard to say "no". If nothing else I can set difficulty to easy and slice...

    how can I remove the "User Tag List" box at the top of every thread?

    I appreciate that some folks will get use out of the new tagging functions, but I have no interest in them. I've turned off all the relevant options in my settings, but I still see the "User Tag List" box at the top of every thread. Is it possible for me to hide that box?

    Yakuza Apocalypse: what the heck did I just watch?

    Going into it I expected yakuza, and vampires, and sure it started that way, with weird digressions but seemed to return to some kind of a point, then just, I dunno, Andy Warhol took over? I'd say that something was lost in translation, but I suspect that no, that movie was just as weird to...

    Guardians, or Russia does the Avengers

    https://youtu.be/IeGIa5HO37Y I have no idea what the politics will be like, but the effects and visual design are worth a look. A lot will hinge on who the villain(s?) are.

    (not so?) radical MMO idea: computer-controlled healers and tanks

    Prompted by this comment in a thread about Wildstar: The holy trinity of tank, healer and DPS exists because it's the easiest way to design MMO combat. DPS characters will focus their skills and equipment on maximizing their damage, to the detriment of their defense/survivability. Mobs usually...

    I love the Humble Indie Bundles

    The latest, #13 (hence the "Humble InDIE Bundle") includes Risk of Rain, Tower of Guns, and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, all games that I've been following for a while but didn't know that Mac versions were ever planned. The original bundles were all DRM-free, and all games playable on...

    Machete gets a sequel

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V53kqEKiyYU The cast list must be seen to be believed. There's probably an English-language trailer around somewhere, or will be eventually, but it's not hard to follow. I supposed I should watch the first movie at some point, but I doubt it'll be necessary to...
