» Astronomy Pic of the Day: NGC 6822: Barnard's Galaxy

Grand spiral galaxies often seem to get all the glory, flaunting their young, bright, blue star clusters in beautiful, symmetric spiral arms. But small galaxies form stars too, like nearby NGC 6822, also known as Barnard's Galaxy. Beyond the rich starfields in the constellation Sagittarius, NGC 6822 is a mere 1.5 million light-years away, a member of our Local Group of galaxies. A dwarf irregular galaxy similar to the Small Magellanic Cloud, NGC 6822 is about 7,000 light-years across. Brighter foreground stars in our Milky Way have a spiky appearance. Behind them, Barnard's Galaxy is seen to be filled with young blue stars and mottled with the telltale pinkish hydrogen glow of star forming regions in this deep color composite image.

George Clooney was the best Batman! Just kidding, of course. Today, we hop into the Batmobile and buckle our seatbelts as we take a look at some thrilling, murky, and sometimes funny titles featuring the Dark Knight that you can play on PC.

The 1980s were a very generous decade for our hero. First of all, The Dark Knight Returns comics from Frank Miller took the Batman story in a darker direction than the previous, goofy Adam West adaptation. Secondly,... [Read More]

Missile Reversal Is A Game-Changing Skill In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Nov 29, 2020 - 3:02 AM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla mixes up its RPG elements a bit in how it plays with the concept of a skill tree. Rather than give up the goods from the start, you reveal chunks of it from the fog as you go. I guess it technically adds a bit of mystery to character progression, until you realize you can just poke around online and see maps of... [Read More]

Yakuza: Like A Dragon Is The Series’ Perfect Entry Point

Nov 29, 2020 - 3:02 AM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar

The Yakuza series intimidates me. It includes seven huge mainline games, and even though I’ve made two earnest attempts to start the saga, I’ve never even finished Yakuza 0. That says more about me than the games, but I’m sure I’m not alone; getting through Yakuza’s whole sprawling story is a daunting proposition, since it involves playing... [Read More]

Science fiction enthusiasts hardly need an introduction to Dune. The original book, along with the long-running novel series that ensued, are foundational pieces of the genre canon. The series also has close ties with the early days of the strategy tabletop hobby, as the original 1979 board game was an early success story for... [Read More]
