What Are You Playing This Week?
In case anyone round here is gaming on top of their politics, tell us what you’ve been playing lately. I got in some Splatoon 2, some God Eater 2 Rage Burst, played a few different games on Taito Legends for the original Xbox (Space Gun, Operation Wolf, Bubble Bobble and Rastan) along with a small amount of EDF 4.1, grinding on Inferno levels as you tend to attempt on that game.

SAURIAN Released To Steam Early Access – This game has you playing as a dinosaur, hearkening back to Savage Quest for the arcade while adding in the survival element to it. You might think of this one as a grown up The Land Before Time. Without the singing. Official website for the game is here.
We are Saurian, an independent game project who’s goal is to provide the most captivating dinosaur experience ever developed for commercial gaming by recreating the Hell Creek ecosystem of 66 million years ago through the Unity 3D Game engine, giving the player the first true chance to live like a dinosaur.

New Footage For Crytek’s Hunt Showdown (PC) – Crytek has not had a smooth ride in recent years but perhaps their upcoming ‘co-op survival horror’ game Hunt Showdown will turn things around for them. We’ll see when it comes around next year.

Bloody Zombies Brawler Crawls Its Way To Release On Sep. 12th (PC, PS4, VR, XB1) – I mainly care about sharing this because brawlers are still uncommon since they stopped showing up in arcades in the 90s. That said, the graphics aren’t anything to write home about and another zombies infestation the UK game is nothing close to original; I also am not sure what VR is supposed to add here. But if you don’t care about that stuff and enjoy beat ’em ups and zombies, then maybe its for you.
Team up. Bash brains. Save London. Watch the official announce trailer for Bloody Zombies, a new co-op brawler coming to PS4 and PlayStation VR later this year.

When Checkpoints Suck – I’m sure we’ve all played a game where the game has a checkpoint that takes place right before an event that ends up killing you almost right away. This pokes fun at that gaming irritant :
Vidme – the world’s most creator-friendly video platform
Game Music Of The Week: Robo Aleste, Inside The Mine (Sega CD) – Shoot ’em ups are always a great source for some muzak, let’s go with Robo Alesta from the Sega CD this week:

Homebrew of the Week: Alex Kidd In Miracle World 2 (Sega Master System) – If you had a thing for Sega’s ‘other’ platforming mascot Alex Kidd, then this fan made effort is for you.

Foxconn To Build A Plant In MI Too – Amazing what can happen when you put a businessman into the Presidency with an American First mentality + sensible ideas on international trade, isn’t it? How many libertarian and liberal Open Borders/One World geniuses told us that these jobs would “NEVER” come back? Granted, without Trump, it’s pretty much guaranteed that they would not have.

Ruger’s Silent-SR ISB For .22 Rifles – This is one way to make your .22 rifle look meaner while bringing the sound down. Of course, silencers aren’t where Hollywood likes to pretend they are (with the nearly silent ‘zip’ foley) but this still sounds like it does a great job at suppression.
We can’t stay silent about their new integrally suppressed barrel. The Silent-SR ISB offers a great looking barrel option for the Ruger 10/22 Takedown model. All you have to do is screw the barrel on at the breech. The company claims the Silent-SR reduces sounds pressure levels of .22 long rifle to an average of 113.2 decibels using standard velocity ammunition.
DOE Awards 2nd Voucher To Transatomic For Continued Experiments With Molten Salt Fuel – That headline is a mouthful but suffice it to say that when Trump said that we would be supporting nuclear energy, the administration is sticking with that promise so far. Transatomic is a start-up company that has designed a new kind of nuclear reactor, described in the video below. The video doesn’t mention the molten salt fuel however, which is something that will be tested on further by the Argonne Lab outside of Chicago:
Dr. Leslie Dewan and her team at Transatomic are designing a nuclear reactor that can produce much more electricity than a conventional reactor, while creating much less nuclear waste. But to implement their vision, they’ll need to take on a deeply entrenched energy industry and convince a cautious public that Transatomic can safely harness the most powerful energy in the world.
The Pup Pocket Scanner – I could actually use something like this and not just because it uses lasers. Running a small business you have to frequently scan documents in but in my case I don’t really need to have a fully stocked office so I end up waiting until I get home to scan in certain things…if I remember 😛

The Decline Of Radio Shack – For those who remember when Radio Shack was useful, before giving up and trying to become just another smartphone retailer before the bitter end:
RadioShack has been on a tremendous decline over many years. It’s been much longer and more severe than I realized. But what exactly happened? What happened that turned the successful company RadioShack into what it is today?
Space Pron Of The Week – Cylinder Mountains On Venus: Here is a strange geologic phenomenon seen on Venus that we don’t really understand. Best guesses are vulcanism (not of the Spock variety). Seems like another interesting reason to send a rover to the planet as well (the squares on the image are radar artifacts)
