Okay, I'm interested in the videogame industry because I'm a gamer.  So I know about this thing called "Twitch" and I know it basically involves watching people play videogames. 

What I don't understand is WHY?  Seriously why does someone want to watch somebody else play a videogame?  My interest in watching others play a game pretty much stops at either watching a review, or sometimes a hint of a game I'm playing.  I'm not interested in just kicking back in my chair with a beer, and watching some guy play Starcraft, or whatever other game you would play. 

What is the appeal of this?

Lots of people like to watch golf. I never understood that either.

Microsoft is branding their version of "Siri" as "Cortana", who is basically a sexist digital pin-up girl from their "Halo" videogame series.  Somehow I see this decision causing problems down the road.  "Cortana" might be fine for college frat guys playing Halo... but I don't think you want to attach her to your entire Windows platorm.  Maybe they'll decide to put some more clothes on her.

Had an interesting couple of games today against Tyranids.  I played Eldar with a couple Dire Avenger squads in Wave Serpents, a Crimson Hunter, a Night Spinner, and some War Walkers.  My friend played 2 Crones, 2 flying Tyrants, an Exocrine, Tervigon, Venomthrope and Zoanthrope.

He went first, and pretty much had me tabled by the end of turn 3.  We played a second game, randomly rolled the exact same mission type and deployment.  Shuffled terrain around.  This time I went first.  I had him almost tabled by the end of turn 3.

Really interesting to have two games that went so one-sided.

More LOS blocking terrain, I think, makes the games generally more interesting

I'd like to take a minute and thank the Martini Gods for making this Friday bearable.

Need some help - I found these awesome Warp Spider conversions.  I'm getting ready to do some conversions of my own, but I've been trying to think of what to do about the helmet.  I LOVE the Warp Spider helmets that this person did, but his blog doesn't seem to be updated anymore.  I tried contacting him, but haven't heard back.  I can't figure out what helmets he used, and how he did what he did.  

Can anyone help me ID the helmets he used for these Warp Spiders?  I'm not sure what he used for the mandibles either.  It could be just some green stuff around the base of the helmet, with a couple of spikes from a Dark Eldar kit stuck onto the sides?

This is one of the funniest little animations I've seen in a really long time.

I'm not sure which is funnier / sadder about this article:  That the author has as much disdain for this revolutionary piece of hardware as one might have for a new VCR that he can't program the clock on, or his complete non-understanding of how revolutionary the sewing machine was.  +Slate, if this was supposed to be a FUNNY article, it sort of needed more abject comedy in it.

So for Valentines Day my wife and I decided to watch ”Camile". Boy meets girl, boy introduces girl to Red Dwarf. Guy marries girl. Guy and Girl watch Red Dwarf to be ”romantic”. It’s a classic tale. The fact that Robert acted with his wife in the episode made it just a tad more romantic.

I beat The Witcher 2 again for the second time tonight.  This is saying something, considering that the game can change COMPLETELY based on your game choices.  I'd forgotten just how incredible the ending to the game really is.  I really can't wait for The Witcher 3.  +CD Projekt RED

One of the reasons I prefer Google+ to Facebook.  Now if only I could get more of my friends to actually USE it... 
 
This is the reason why I don't enjoy interacting on Facebook, in order to have my posts pushed out to people who WANT to see my stuff, it seems like I need to post the most baseline things, like, say, me in a bikini. Or a kitten.

Dumbing down content to actually REACH my fans is ridiculous. If they're following me, they want to see my stuff. I don't have money to pay to reach all my fans for everything I post. And paying for views sucks in general, Facebook. So...yeah. Great video!
