I'm surprised the recent Shadowgate update didn't get a mention ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/294440/ ). I don't know what exactly qualifies as a "remaster" vs. an "update" or "remake", but it seems in line with what this video is talking about. I played the original on Nintendo, so it's quite impressive that we have a remake almost 30 years later.

I think this is a really challenging set of views presented here:

Where exactly should we, as responsible consumers, draw the line on simulated violence. Where is that line crossed between simulating violence for some greater goal, vs. violence for the sake of sadism.

We've certainly seen some seriously sadistic acts within various sandbox-type games, such as GTA and Skyrim, but should a responsible gamer purchase a game tailored specifically for sadistic violence?

Thought-provoking, and definitely another excellent video from Extra Credits. It's unfortunate that I see the comments on the video filling up with infantile insults and "Nuh-uh", rather than people taking the time to really think it through.

Great video showing what made Fallout Shelter break the established ideas for how successful Free-to-Play games should be built. I think the speculation is dead-on for what makes the game acceptable to players who would normally never touch a F2P game. Really, the only control that would make me feel like I need to check in is if I have someone out in the wasteland. Other than that, I can easily not log in for a day or two, without significant impact.

A little funny, but I still can't help but cringe a little at some of the harder falls, knowing how much money and work went into these robots.

Just as a test, I want to collect some of the videos and pictures of the local Khmu Community I've taken over the past few years. I'm just starting with some of my oldest ones for the moment.

Introduction
I'm a geeky kind of guy. I like computers/technology, reading, and movies, but also enjoy the outdoors, particularly the Sierra Nevada mountains nearby. I dabble in a lot of different things, such as photography, as well.

Very good food, that's all. The ordering and pickup is from a window, and there are some outdoor tables if you want to eat there; however, if you go there, it's not really for the atmosphere. They make excellent tri-tip sandwiches and burritos, and don't skimp on the meat, which some places are prone to doing.

I've been going here for well over a decade now, as well as involved in assisting with various aspects of the church for nearly as long, and I still love it. It's gone through some ups and downs, but I love the people, and don't plan on leaving anytime soon. It's also one of the most diverse churches I've ever even heard of. We have two English congregations ("Common Ground", the contemporary one, and "Faith Community", the traditional one), a Spanish Language service, "Amor y Fe", and a Lao/Khmu language service, "Asian Grace". We're culturally and economically diverse, with members ranging from former university presidents to immigrants with limited English skills. We are all family, though, and we all worship together once every month or two in our combined services. If you're looking for a place of worship, at least come and visit. Check the website for service times.

Great food in a little place.

Been going here for years, and they have great food. It's more of a sit-down restaurant, with a plate averaging about $10. They make some of the best fajitas I've had, but all of their food is quite good.

Expensive, but some unique architecture and tasty wines. Right behind Sterling as one of the better wineries to visit.

Great food, open late, they have some of the best tacos in town, hands down. The staff get the food ready pretty quickly, too. The atmosphere isn't always the best, especially late at night, but the food makes it worth it all the way.

Most of the rooms look cheap and poorly-maintained. Some have been renovated, so they are decent, but still not high-quality. It's also a couple of miles down the strip from the good attractions in Vegas.
