I honestly had fun playing Rage, liked the aesthetics, the world, the driving could be fun sometimes. The biggest problem was that it was only 1/3 of a game.

The exciting part isn't just making something in meatspace, if it was we'd just bake cookies. It's the ability to effortlessly duplicate a design, which can be shared, improved upon, and manufactured with repeatable precision. Now, as far as building parts with the strength of metal, there are 3D printers that use metal, but they are expensive multi-stage processes. I can only imagine that they will get better/less expensive with time.

ananyo writes "LSD has potential as a treatment for alcoholism, according to a comprehensive retrospective analysis of studies published in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The researchers sifted through thousands of records to collect data from randomized, double-blind trials that compared one dose of LSD to a placebo. Of 536 participants in six trials, 59% of people receiving LSD reported lower levels of alcohol misuse (PDF), compared to 38% of people who received a placebo. The study adds to the weight of evidence that hallucinogenic drugs may have important medical uses, including, for example, the alleviation of cluster headaches."

Isn't that exactly OnLive's business model?
The galaxy is freakin' huge. Unless the aliens are from the systems closest to Earth, there's no reason they'd give a damn.
#3 Had Marauder Armor and is infinitely more watchable than #2 if #2 turned you off the series.
Unless you won.
I didn't see jump jets.
Ahh, all this talk of external PCIE reminds me of the ASUS XG Station, I had so much hope for that: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/ces-asus-xg-station,4679.html Too bad
