Sharing things that I've got prepped for my cyberpunk Sixth World (powered by the Apocalypse) game this weekend at #DrewCon . Here's what I've got put together for my futuristic cyberpunk adventures in Detroit.

Rob, e-mail me at Fezzwick@gmail.com and I will send you a copy.  I wrote it 4 years ago for a small competition at Winter Fantasy.  It was my first attempt at writing something, so keep that in mind.  :)

In writing love letters for our game tonight, I actually created a countdown clock for someone, and named it "The Dark Side Clock".

OooOoOOoooOOoooh.

Countdown clocks are a great way to simulate the fall toward the dark side. :D

So my old Acer tablet is now a brick, and I'm looking for suggestions on a decently priced mid-range tablet. It would be used for reading comics, watching Netflix, browsing the web and social media, and a few games for the kids. I'd like to stick to Android, because I'm familiar with it and we already  have an iPad in the house. However, the MS Surface Pro looks interesting as well.

Suggestions? Warnings?

I had a good experience with an ASUS MemoPad. It's reasonably priced and
had good performance. Though it didn't like the concrete floor of my
apartment building's parking garage.

Poking around a bit more in Elite Dangerous before the final Beta and then Gamma patches get applied before the December 16 release. Found myself in LP 98-132, an anarchy system, and snapped this shot as I approached Freeport from the dark side of the planet.

This game is tons of fun to play, is visually stunning, and I can hardly wait to see what they have planned for it in the future.

I totally comic book fan-boy'd out yesterday about Movkingbird, and that was before I got to see her kick more ass in last night's episode.

Trailer for Rebel Galaxy – has a bit of a Firefly feel, then they just start blowing shit up – for PS4 and SteamOS.

Not exactly Dungeon World, but...

Thursday night marks the session in my Star Wars World (Star Wars Powered by the Apocalypse) game when the protagonists are supposed to be infiltrating and destroying the starship superweapon being built by a nasty Imperial Inquisitor - a superweapon in direct competition for the Emperor's favour with the Death Star, and Governor Tarkin. The ship in still under construction in an orbital shipyard over the planet Telos, and the construction project is quickly devouring Telos' resources.

What I want to do is make up some Location Moves, like you'd find in Dungeon World, for the superweapon. It's a Star Destroyer, essentially, with a planet-killing superlaser slung underneath and a heavily shielded and oversized reactor that is open to space. What sort of dangers would a situation like this have - in space, or on board? Any suggestions welcome. I'm struggling with how to build this!

This seems to have come out of nowhere, but with a name like Valve behind it, I'm going to be keeping an eye on it - also because this one does not have Facebook behind it.
 
I wasn't going to buy the Oculus because they sold out to facebook and now that valve is making one, no one else has to either. This should work right through steam and work seamlessly, unlike the rift. Go die Facebook.
We knew Valve would be showing some form of virtual reality something at this year's Game Developers Conference, but a surprise Sunday announcement blew the lid off the device and gave us more than enough details to get excited. With both Sony and Oculus refusing to give much in the way of a solid release window for their VR products, knowing companies as large as Valve and HTC have a product that will ship in calendar 2015 is great news. It also...

Just seeing this now. I like it a lot. This looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Elite Dangerous + NoIR head-tracking + delivering commands through voice recognition = fun game that is as immersive as anything I've ever played.

It's very close to public release, now. They're sitting at Beta v3, and all I know is that it's delivering Q4 2014, which ends very soon. The head-tracker I'm using is FaceTrackNoIR, which is open source and can spoof Elite into thinking it's TrackIR, an expensive bit of software that Elite has been set up for.The voice recognition is done through Voice Attack, which I have a trial version for but it's only US$9 to buy.

It's fun to launch from the hangar, and say "raise landing gear" instead of having to look on my keyboard for the "Insert" key, or say "Target nearest hostile", or "charge jump drive", or anything like that. Sure, it's nerdy, but that's why I love it! :D

We found it busy on a Monday night, but not too crowded. Staff was courteous and friendly, service was quick. A cappuccino, hot chocolate, and two butter tarts nearly used up my fresh $20 bill, however for the quality of the products I'm willing to pay that price. I felt out of place not having my Macbook or iPhone with me to stick my nose in, and I was a little annoyed at how some of the patrons had spread their belongings out to areas that they weren't actively using (placing items on a chair and then going to socialize on the patio). That's not the fault of the café, though, that's the fault of the pretentious customers.

Enjoyed the lunch special. Two orders of chicken pad thai with vegetable spring rolls and hot & spicy soup. Staff was friendly and attentive, food arrived quickly, was well presented, and tasty. Would eat here again.

I pick up lunch from Melitsa's once or twice a month. Always friendly, the food is always great (I typically get pork or chicken souvlaki with olives and some dolmades), and the prices are reasonable.

Been taking my vehicles here for the last 6-7 years, and they've always been a pleasure to deal with. They've been honest and upfront about work that needs to be done versus work that doesn't need to be done (or, doesn't need to be done right away). Their prices are competitive, they're friendly, personable, and they run a clean shop. Highly recommended to us by a neighbour who is passionate about his cars.

Stopped in at Cristo's for the first time today. The deli is large, clean and spacious with a few tables to sit and eat (Euro 2012 was on the television). I ordered the House Special sandwich, which came with two types of meat, as well as provolone and wonderfully fresh veggies. Also got a butter tart and something to drink. Staff was courteous and friendly. Many other items on the menu to choose from, which I plan on trying out. You can give them you email address to receive notifications on their daily specials.

I've been going to Subworx regularly for several years now, and I've always been pleased with the product. The now offer $5 subs, all day every day, and the choices are great. Check out their selection of hot sauces as well.
