    Star Wars: Episode VII Takes Place 30 Years After Original Trilogy

    I thought that they were redoing the Canon Policy for Star Wars, simplifying it from the M-, T-, C-, and N-Canon levels to just a simple Canon/Non-Canon classification. They're supposed to be going through the entire EU and saying what's happened in the timeline and what hasn't. (Sources: Here...

    NASA Plans a Manned Flyby of Mars, Mission to Europa

    Actually, the Russians set the record for that back on the Mir, around 437 days for one person, Valeri Polyakov, with the runner-up record being 379 days. This proposed Mars flyby will still be the longest spaceflight on record by months if and when it happens, but there is some information...

    Ubisoft Launches Black Flag Official Trailer A Tad Early

    Liberation, right? That was the name. They're supposed to be releasing an improved HD version for consoles sometime next year, I think. To the main point, the trailer's pretty, but I'm a bit annoyed by Anne Bonney's narration. She's an interesting historical character in her own right, and...

    You can have an Army of anything. What do you have?

    Oh? Beneath you? But, what if I army of Sisko! ...what would be the plural of Sisko? Would it even need to be plural?

    Drone Completes First-Ever Automated Carrier Landing

    It's amazing, the things that they can get these things to do, now. Size is also pretty darn impressive, though I doubt that the production versions will be quite that big. Heh, at this point, it's only a matter of time until FedEx or some other shipping company adopts this. Can you imagine...

    Miracle of Sound: Dream of the Sky (BioShock: Infinite)

    How appropriate that a song about a game that includes reality warping and alternate dimensions should include references to your songs about other games. Anyways, sir, a magnificient song, as always, but I believe that this is one of your best. The variety and the content was simply amazing.

    Not Greedy, Just Clueless

    Mr. Young, that was brilliant, all of it. Well said, sir.

    You Too Can Name the Moons of Pluto

    I say Persephone and Acheron, though I actually like all of the names available.

    Christopher Dorner first drone target on U.S. soil.

    It doesn't actually seem like they're using the drone to target him for a kill, rather it just seems like they're using it to find him; which, as far as UAV use on American soil goes, is nothing new. You know, come to think of it, there was a good TIME article on this subject a couple weeks...

    Skyrim Composer Invites Facebook to Elder Scrolls Concert

    That just about sums up my response, too. If this get's recorded, I'm picking it up for sure.

    LoadingReadyRun: CMN

    In that case, he would presumably have Ron Dewings as an assistant salesman.

    GDC Announces Game Developers Choice Award Nominees

    I agree that the VA-work and soundtrack for the Mass Effect series has always been strong, it's not like there wasn't stiff competition this year. That said, I would like to have seen it get a nod.

    Disney Blends Skylanders and Minecraft in Disney Infinity

    This...Actually looks kind of awesome. The idea, at least, is genius. I wonder what other franchises they'll throw in. I do wonder about Disney's new additions, like the article mentions, it would be amazing to see Marvel and Lucasfilm content in this. Hey, maybe they'll throw in Classic...

    Critical Miss: Top Five Games of 2012 #4

    Still, it would be highly amusing, and I would assume that the same thing would go for anything made by Leonard of Quirm? Still, if there's ever a game in Ankh-Morpork, it would be a crime if the Watch didn't show up at least once. More on topic, I do find the tally incredibly funny...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer Goes on Transhumanist Rampage

    So, too many dips into the human augmentation pool causes people to go from Adam Jensen to HK-47? Actually sounds kind of interesting; and maybe a bit amusing, too. Maybe the first sign of biological rebellion is using speech conditionals... More on topic, this game actually has piqued my...
