Weekly Gaming/Tech Thread #72 – Hurried Up Edition
This week’s thread is not going to be as detailed as they usually are as I have been traveling this week and have had to focus on the fallout after that (making videos and such)
What Are We Playing This Week?
I mostly enjoyed new, unreleased arcade games such as Transformers Shadows Rising, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Tomb Raider Arcade.

Space Pr0N Of The Week: M51, the Whirlpool Galaxy – I may not have had enough time to scour the interwebs for tech news like usual but I always have time for some space pr0n. Here’s a photogenic galactic neighbor of ours, the Whirlpool Galaxy & companion. These are a mere 31 million light-years away and are not difficult to find with the right kind (i.e., big enough) of telescope:
