I pretty much love everything RedLetterMedia does, but this is even better than I was expecting!

Starship Rubicon is coming to Steam very soon, *cough* tomorrow *cough* and I wanted to let everyone know that we are happy with how the Linux port turned out. That said there are a zillion Linux variants out there and we wanted to drop some tips for people on how to get things running as smooth as possible.

SOUND

Linux has some problems with sound effects not playing and/or being at wonky volumes. Go figure. It uses OpenAL by default (I have not been able to get FreeAudio to work) but apparently needs the 32-bit drivers. On 64-bit Ubuntu, you should be able to get them with:

sudo apt-get install libopenal1:i386 libopenal-dev:i386

Other linux distros need to... Read All

I'm just now hearing about Amazon Echo. Completely freaked out, but I so want one! Skynet be damned!

I recently saw a pretty cool fan creation called "Predator Dark Ages." It's an exceptionally good fan creation that pits the Predator against some Dark Ages Knights.

For years, we all believed that Harry Potter was the Chosen One, the one destined to save the wizarding world from Lord Voldemort, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. BUT, have we been duped? Is it possible that our lightning-bolted boy wonder isn't as special as we thought? What is there was ANOTHER Chosen One? What if it all boiled down to a coin flip? Then Harry Potter would just be an average kid. Maybe there's a universe out there where Harry should be THANKING Lord Voldemort...but I'll leave that to you to judge!

From MatPat, the creator of The Game Theorists comes a new YouTube Channel, The Film Theorists. It's a new channel, but there's already 8 videos on it.... Read All

Apparently if you mix young Anakin with Darth Vaders voice the results are hilarious and don't end well for the Empire.

I'm curious if any of you have, in any way, optimized your PC for gaming. If so, let me know.

After buying my Alienware PC over a year ago, I was quite confident that it was a beast of a machine. I'm running a 3,7GHz Intel i7-4820, 16 GB RAM, 3TB HDD, and a GTX 690 (a 4GB dual-GPU card). I was able to play Skyrim on "ultra" settings and I never noticed any lag in the game whatsoever. Although, there seemed to be some physics issues, though I suspect that was an issue with the game, not my hardware. However, once I got GTAV for the PC and letting Geforce Experience optimize the game for me, I noticed some lag. I'm not sure if it's because my hardware can't... Read All

The RedLetterMedia guys are back at it, this time breaking down action blockbuster movie trailers. It seems Hollywood has figured out a formula to draw us all in. It's all so obvious in this video.

Clever and/or funny tagline

This space is for those interested in discussing the sights and sounds in Marvel's Agents of Shield, and by extension the entire MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Season 2 is coming to a close, soon, and Avengers: Age of Ultron is practically upon us. A good time to hash a few things out.

There will be spoilers here. Oh, so many spoilers. So, if you aren't current on the episodes, or the rest of the MCU (while Daredevil and Agent Carter do tie in, we can probably avoid spoiling too much on those shows, since there isn't much crossover), be warned. Marvel is doing a unique thing in tying all of these stories together, and there are many, many tangled... Read All

I'm not the biggest fan of Metallica, for reasons, but this incredible all-girl band's cover of Enter Sandman is enough to make me want to wear black for the next week. They call themselves The Warning, and they're all under 14 years old. Amazing!

Interstellar is a new sci-fi epic by Christopher Nolan about a crew of astronauts that travel to space to find a new home for humanity. Christopher Nolan is a great director and I usually enjoy his films and Interstellar was no exception. The story, cinematography, acting and score are all top notch and really showcase a director at the top of his game. If you love hard sci-fi you need to watch Interstellar.

When I really enjoy a film I buy it. I typically watch movies I love many times over and I also like scouring over the extended scenes, outtakes and behind the scenes features. I usually buy films on Bluray as digital copies don't usually provide extras,... Read All

Recently, I played a couple of Blizzard games such as Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. HotS is in beta and I noticed some minor bugs. I played through the tutorial phase with each character. It's much like Dota 2, which I've only played briefly (it came with my new Alienware PC I got over a year ago). I didn't play the game very much, but I thought it was interesting. The game seems primarily about playing with and against other players (co-op and PVP), although I found out that you can create your own game and include all computer opponents if you wish.

I also found out about Hearthstone, which is much like Magic: The Gathering. I... Read All

As I am a big Star Wars fan I am happy to report on some interesting news out of the new Star Wars-verse. Since the old Star Wars Universe was rebooted in favor of the new Star Wars Universe, Disney is pretty hip to release all manner of new stories that take us from the events of Return of the Jedi to the upcoming The Force Awakens. Today they dropped some news about an upcoming series I found pretty interesting.

"The second Death Star has been destroyed. Rumors are flying that the Emperor and his enforcer, Darth Vader, are dead. A new government is forming to replace the Empire. But the galaxy is a big place, and the fallout of this cataclysm will affect... Read All

Counter-Strikes Dust2 is one of the most popular multiplayer maps in gaming history. PC Gamer recently interviewed the Counter-Strike map creators Sal "Volcano" Garozzo and Shawn "FMPONE" Snelling about why they think this is one of the greatest maps of all time.
