Expanse Season 2! Expanse Season 2! Expanse Season 2!

We’re 5 episodes into the second season. Here are some thoughts on how it is so far, the new cast members, and other various nerdstuff.

The greatest app I have on my phone, at least that’s not messaging or cute dog related, is the Sure Universal remote app.

And let me be clear, I don’t use it at home at all. I think smartphone remote apps are a poor substitute to something with actual buttons.

No, I love the Sure app because it gives the gift of silence. Or at least, the drastic reduction in noise. Here’s why.

The core Just Cause 3 game came out at the tail end of December… 2015. Throughout 2016 several DLCs came out. Clearly, I missed all of them. What’s the point in talking about this game now? Well, it is fun so if you missed it, here's why you should check it out.

What’s interesting to me, however, is how the game is fun. You see, there’s absolutely no challenge to it. Your character is essentially invincible and immortal. There’s no death penalty, you have essentially unlimited ammo and explosives, and despite sort of taking place in the real world, your character can basically fly.

And yet… it still manages to be fun. Why?

Is it fair to review something that’s still in beta (alpha, even?). Since anyone can play it, and they’re still accepting money if you want to give it, I’d say yeah.

But I’ll clarify now this isn’t a judgement. This is the simplest definition of “review.” Perhaps “checking it out so you don’t have to” would be a better description.

So how goes the biggest crowdfunded project ever? It goes quite well, actually.

A few weeks ago I waxed ecstatic about Creeper World 3, one of the most clever and addicting games I’ve ever played.

Particle Fleet: Emergence is a similar game set in the same universe. The big difference is instead of being on the ground building a base, you’re in space with a fleet. Even cooler, you can build your own ships.

Here’s how it is.

I am so sorry. So, so sorry. I’m going to tell you about this game and you’re going to hate me for it.

Say goodbye to your free time. This is the most addictive game I’ve ever played (and no, you don’t need to have played the other two games, I didn’t).

It’s a little weird reviewing a Civ game, since pretty much everyone who would like it already knows about it, and has probably already bought it.

So this is a review for the rest of us. People who aren’t familiar with the Civ series, and perhaps think it’s not something they’d enjoy.

I say “we” because I’m not a big turn-based strategy fan. But I am a fan of a fun and addictive game, and this is definitely that.

The Hitman video game series received a bit of a re-tweaking this year, with a new game split among six “episodes” released throughout the year.

All six have been released so I figured it was time to take a look.

I had an idea. In hindsight, a really bad idea. I thought it would be cool to rewatch all 13 Star Trek movies, in order, and rank them...

At last, not-Top Gear has finally arrived. But has the magic made the transition to the Web?
