» Astronomy Pic of the Day: Asperitas Clouds Over New Zealand

What kind of clouds are these? Although their cause is presently unknown, such unusual atmospheric structures, as menacing as they might seem, do not appear to be harbingers of meteorological doom. Formally recognized as a distinct cloud type only last year, Asperitas clouds can be stunning in appearance, unusual in occurrence, and are relatively unstudied. Whereas most low cloud decks are flat bottomed, asperitas clouds appear to have significant vertical structure underneath. Speculation therefore holds that asperitas clouds might be related to lenticular clouds that form near mountains, or mammatus clouds associated with thunderstorms, or perhaps a foehn wind -- a type of dry downward wind that flows off mountains. Such a wind called the Canterbury arch streams toward the east coast of New Zealand's South Island. The featured image, taken above Hanmer Springs in Canterbury, New Zealand, in 2005, shows great detail partly because sunlight illuminates the undulating clouds from the side.

It seems like every year release calendars get more and more crowded. So much so that individual days now have multiple triple-A releases, (I am looking at you October 27, 2017 and now February 22, 2019), making it impossible to ever clear out our ever-growing backlogs. If you didnít already have enough to anticipate, there are many games coming out that are flying under the radar, with numerous Early Access releases and indie games. Here are 10 titles to look forward to arenít called The Last... [Read More]

We already know Fallout 76 will be an online-oriented game, with a focus on inter-player interactions over branching dialogue trees with NPCs. But what does that mean when it comes to player-on-player confrontations? During today's Fallout 76 panel at Quakecon, project lead Jeff Gardiner, game director Todd Howard, and development director Chris Meyer gave us some elucidating details.
Since Fallout games have been mostly single-player affairs up to this point, multiplayer introduces... [Read More]

Although the recently-detailed Fallout 76 has major online components, Bethesda is one of the publishers championing the creation of single-player games. But these games tend to be more prone to being resold, and according to a recent report, it may also be championing legal action against people trying to resell their games after buying them.

Graduating from university and being tossed into the throes of adult life is never easy, but there are certain things that make it that much more difficult. Things like a struggling global economy, worrying about where you’ll end up living, and your flatmate showing up and turning out to be a many-eyed deer-fish-sheep creature all […]
