I would be interested if we can get schedules to work out.  I'm usually not that busy in the summer month as I am in the spring and fall.

Let's see what this #ReignMaker  game is about, shall we?

Well, that was interesting. A decent match 3 game with some mobile-esque resource management mechanics in the city building portion. Good news, though, is that there doesn't seem to be a cash shop in sight!

I plan on streaming some ReignMaker this evening around 8PM EST at http://www.twitch.tv/levelcappedtv for those who might be interested.  

I didn't get a chance to check it out at PAX...actually, scratch that: I didn't KNOW it was at PAX, despite the fact that Frogdice's booth was right in front of the queue lines. I kinda blew past it. Their banners were advertising Marvel Puzzle Quest, which I had already played, so I didn't stop by to check things out : /

But ReignMaker is getting high praise, and at $9.99 it seems like a pretty good deal.

I have FrogDice's Dungeon of Elements, which is tons of fun. So, I'm expecting this one to be good, too!

Thanks to +Simon Dufour for the Aviate launcher invite. It's pretty cool! It's not as heavy as Themer, but it's more informative and organized than the standard launcher (I was using Nova, though). 

It just asked me where my morning location was (home) and it gives me info on that particular spot. It updates itself during the day, so I can expect in the afternoon that it'll ask where my afternoon location is so it can give me info from that point of view. 

It's like the Cards of GNow, but it's more up front about it.

Time is our enemy, never our friend. 

Woody Allen once said that “Time is nature’s way of keeping everything from happening at once”, but what he didn’t tell us was that Time doesn’t have a problem with everything happening at once. It only has a problem with letting us know everything at once. Knowledge in the right hands can do wonderful things, but only a little knowledge at certain times; certainly not all knowledge that exists in all of creation. In small doses, knowledge is wonderful. Otherwise, knowledge is a weapon. A potent, painful, and utterly destructive weapon. It’s the job of Time to ensure that we don’t know more than we should before we should, because otherwise, we’d surely erase ourselves from existence in the blink of an eye, and without a second thought. 

As if adding insult to injury, Time doesn’t bother to let us know this until the end of our lives, when we’re either too old to appreciate it, or too occupied with our final thoughts to notice. In that split second when the cosmic switch is thrown, and our ephemeral self is cut free of our physical self do we see the sum of our lives flash before our eyes, and we suddenly understand the trick of Time. Viewed from start to finish, our own patterns emerge and we see where we fit into the universe, how we affected lives and nature, and what the impact of lives lived had on the greater plan. 

What we don’t see — and what is Time’s last, great practical joke — is the impact we could have had if we could live forever. Who knows what wonderful things we could each accomplish if we only had another lifetime, maybe even just another day. Death is the end of the potential of our lives, leaving our worth to be measured only by what we did, not what we could have done. 

But then again, who gets to take credit for a life they’ve never lived? People try, but Time will not be cheated, and the truth emerges eventually. Maybe not right away, or within the lifetime of a single soul’s contemporaries, but Time is very good about maintaining a status quo to it’s own advantage. No one lives forever, physically, or even in the longest memory. 

The key, then, is to live a life just ahead of the grasp of Time, to outrun it’s schemes and plans to keep us from knowing everything at once. Not everyone is lucky enough to live one lifetime, and only a handful have ever managed to live multiple lifetimes. There’s no road map to do so, which is actually a good thing. Too many people with too much knowledge would be catastrophic, and those who set out in search of a surefire way to stay one step ahead of Time would destroy civilizations in it’s pursuit. The path for the fortunate is different every time, because as much of a bastard Time can be on us mortals, it has a blind spot on occasion.

I connected the Vita directly to the PS4 rather than relying on the home wifi, and it does such a good job that I'm thinking my router has all but died.
