Epic, near-EVE-worthy troll sabotages Elite: Dangerous community event | Ars Technica

How to trust no-one in the deep dark world of space — kinda also reflects real life.

I need to figure out how to play this game properly (I have it on Steam and like the graphics, but the controls are really frustrating….)

Do you want to play a game? Ransomware asks for high score instead of money | Ars Technica

A new randomware was doing the rounds, but rather than paying to unlock, it’s asking for a high score in a bullet-hell (think Touhou Project) game. The game is fun anyway, but would you be willing to play it to get your files? High stakes 🙂

 

Creator apologizes for a “joke” that really requires expert play to unlock files.

FINAL FANTASY 30TH ANNIVERSARY – Timeless Legacy Trailer – YouTube

Has it really been 30 years since Final Fantasy first graces our TV screens? Wow. And all these different versions — not including spin-offs (X-2 , XIII-2, Mystic Quest, and Lightning Returns) and expansions (FFXIV’s Heavensward and upcoming Stormblood, for example) are not included. But the franchise has been going for 3 decades and doesn’t look like it’s stopping any time soon 🙂

It’s true, ‘Pokémon Go’ is becoming a fitness craze

It turns out that there’s an amazing side effect to joining the ranks of the millions now addicted to Pokémon Go: better health.

Fitness tracker Jawbone UP claims that users of its fitness band who also mentioned that they used Pokémon Go logged a whopping 62.5 percent more steps this weekend compared to their steps taken during a normal weekend.

As someone who is a runner, I can confirm this thing is like Ingress — encouraging you to go to new places or making you treat pokestops and gyms as milestones – which is great for interval training. I’m running circles around my local area, stopping by at three different pokestops each loop 🙂

Currently Level 12 with about 251 pokemon caught, 47 unique ones seen, and 47 active in my bag.
