» Astronomy Pic of the Day: Geminids and Friends

From a radiant in the constellation of the Twins, the annual Geminid meteor shower rained down on our fair planet this week. This beautiful skyscape collects about 70 of Gemini's lovely shooting stars in a digital composition made from multiple exposures. The exposures were taken over a six hour period near the shower's peak. The camera was tracking the dark predawn sky on December 14 from Teide National Park on the Canary Island Tenerife. Though Gemini lies off the top left of the frame, the Milky Way sweeps through the starry background. Sharing the sky below and left of center are recognizable stars and nebulosities of Orion. A yellowish Aldebaran and the Hyades are toward the right along with the Pleiades star cluster. Also a welcome visitor to this night sky, the faint green coma of Comet 46P Wirtanen, closest to Earth this weekend, lies below the Pleiades stars. Dust swept up from the orbit of active asteroid 3200 Phaethon, Gemini's meteors enter Earth's atmosphere traveling at about 35 kilometers per second.

Legends of Aria Comprehensive Impressions

Dec 15, 2018 - 4:51 AM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar
I've seen the name Legends of Aria posted on our website in the top five voted games for a while, but I was always skeptical about it. It seemed to offer a throwback, almost identical to Ultima Online. Was I truly ready for such a game? Would it even be worth the time and effort? They surely couldn't do the game justice could they? I had my doubts, truly, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by what I've seen so far.... [Read More]

Shooting Stuff with the Black Desert Online Archer

To my dismay, Black Desert Online hasn't quite evolved into the group PVE direction I wanted when I reviewed the game years ago. But that doesn't mean I've given up on Pearl Abyss' wonderfully complex and gorgeous MMO. I still go back every so often, but it's been several months since my last visit. This time, my return was brought on by the Legolas-But-Not-Really Archer, the new male ranger class that was added this week.... [Read More]

The blog asks, "Why does it cost 30% to distribute games?" Their answer? It doesn't.... [Read More]
