The next Dragon Age looks like a mash-up of Skyrim and Rift. I think that will take all my time away from me.

We've dropped the NDA on ArcheAge alpha, and to celebrate we've released the launch trailer.

You can see me manning some of the cannons in our livestream. Or you can just watch the whole thing if you are interested in playing ArcheAge.

My dream of human computer interface is me doing Tai Chi for all my commands and inputs. Then my work at the computer will make me healthier instead of killing me.

I guess they would drag me off to die, because I pronounce it with the hard G.
 
It's serious guys.

hard G, til I die, even though the inventors have gone on record insisting they meant it to be soft.

I totally understand this. I also use my layman's understanding of complex cosmology and quantum physics concepts, to weave together a version of the universe based around some theory that was discredited hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

I however, will freely admit that I write fantasy.
Scientist Lawrence Krauss says clips of him were "mined" to lend credibility to The Principle, a film he describes as "stupid" and "unbelievable."

I know I seem to post nothing by angry screeds about anti-vaxxers. Instead let's take a moment to celebrate some real successes that will reduce the suffering of millions of people. We have eradicated polio in east Asia. Through a massive vaccination program, it's been polio free for three years. High-five! 
India and 10 other Southeast Asian nations have eradicated polio, health leaders say. The milestone means 80 percent of the world's population now lives without risk of the paralyzing virus.

This Facebook/Oculus deal may not have given us VR any sooner, but boy howdy has it unleashed the pundits. Not just on the way new business aspects of the deal (though that is interesting) but for the first time since the 90s you can wildly speculate on the philosophical meaning of virtual reality. Everything is so deep and profound now. 

I still get nauseous thinking of my time in the Rift.

And with today's announcement I'll post this excellent video about the disruption that VR will cause, and while hard core gamers may suck at VR games.

This guy is pretty darned good. He made me interested in something I knew nothing about. I even wanted to talk about it. My bad luck no one wanted to listen. Thanks for the link.
