    Poll: Video Games With More Than Four Dimensions?

    Huh. I guess I should tell that to the hundreds of students at my college taking the Quantum Mechanics class.

    They were running out of awards it could win.

    Mars One Releases Astronaut Open Call Qualifications

    Probably because we've already been to the moon, and there's not much benefit to living there. I imagine the reason we're going to colonize Mars instead of just visiting it is because we don't actually have a way to get people back after we send them.

    Mars One Releases Astronaut Open Call Qualifications

    Basically, yes. We didn't go to the moon to mine its resources, and we didn't climb Everest to set up a research outpost. Sometimes, we just need to do things in order to advance as a species, even if they aren't particularly useful. Space travel needs a good kick in the pants right now, and...

    Mars One Releases Astronaut Open Call Qualifications

    If only it weren't a one way trip, I'd be all over this. Alas, giving up my creature comforts for the rest of my days sounds like a bit too much of a commitment.

    New Torment game announced

    Nobody complained when they wanted to resurrect Wasteland, and these are the same guys that also made the original Torment. I don't see why they wouldn't be able to make another good RPG.

    Fire Emblem: Awakening Gets Tactical on February 4

    Well crap, now I'm actually tempted to buy a 3DS. Maybe the price will drop before it comes out. ...I can dream, can't I?

    Project Eternity Unveils "Mega-Dungeon"

    I think they're underestimating how many backers they're going to get in the last few days. This is going to be one hell of a dungeon.

    Poll: Ear Stretching

    It's a horrible idea and you will regret it later. Do yourself a favor and just get an earring or something.

    Poll: Lack of basic mathmatical skills

    If you're working with graphs, I'd say calculus would actually be helpful. Sure, you wouldn't need to be able to actually do the math, but knowing the basic concepts of differential and integral calculus would help you interpret the data. A lot of calculus has to do with graphs and data, and...

    Poll: Lack of basic mathmatical skills

    I'm an engineer and pretty darn good at math, and I still need to bust out the calculator for basic arithmetic sometimes. It's not very often that I get a problem where I'm asked to do something simple like 9*27. It's always 3.592*12.735 or 34^(2/9). I guess I'm just out of practice, so I...

    Only if they get bought out by EA.

    Obsidian Unveils Project Eternity

    I'm pretty sure most of the people who donate those amounts are other developers. I know Notch tends to pledge that for some of these games, and I've seen other heads of development studios put down a few grand at least. Most of the money they made on their other games went to their...
