Well, crap. There goes the Masquerade.
Fascinating. How long before someone claims he can use this technology to detect nervous people in airports?

This is nice and all, but I still want a tabletop RPG.

Exploration with friends would be cool, I agree. I'm just not sure I could handle Chuck Norris jokes and misspelled political internet punditry in Tamriel.

For those interested, Rich Burlew is doing a Kickstarter for Order of the Stick book reprints that's making tons of money. They passed their goal in the first day and there's still two weeks left to go.

Thinking about pledging myself, since I never did get any of the print books.
Help us reprint the out-of-print The Order of the Stick books to reach new readers (and let existing fans complete their collections).

Pathfinder Online coming soon(ish). Why do I get the feeling that a Pathfinder MMO will work better than D&D online?

Free Portal. In case there's someone out there that actually hasn't played it yet.

Sweet! No free Xbox version, though.

No idea about system. In-house probably. If there's any justice in the world, conflict resolution will be based on whichever player has the coolest clothes.

Kickstarter for $99 open source game console. So far it's made close to 4 million dollars in three days. With all the layoffs and closures in the gaming industry lately, a cheap dev system for out of work game designers could lead to some interesting things.

Cracking open the last closed platform: the TV. A beautiful, affordable console -- built on Android, by the creator of Jambox.

It's only a matter of time until your email gets hacked. Don't believe me? Just read this harrowing cautionary tale. When [my wife] came back to her desk, half an hour later, she couldn’t log into Gmail at all. By that time, I was up and looking at e‑mail, and we both quickly saw what the real problem was. In my inbox I found a message purporting to be from her, followed by a quickly proliferating stream of concerned responses from friends and a...

Dr. Who- the first TV show from outer space!

That's right, lost episodes of Dr. Who are now coming back to us, courtesy of... us. Well, that, and whatever might be acting as a signal mirror 20-some odd light years out (asteroid field possibly).

I finally had the chance to play it a while back. I liked it a lot. The Basic Chasiums system is nice and simple. And some how, we managed to have 2/5 PC's survive! I think the GM did something wrong..

I even picked up the book (RPG) recently, but haven't had the chance to read it yet.

Sounds interesting! I'll have to check it out. Maybe I can fulfill that childhood dream of being a game developer after all!
