All that said, I think it’s pretty neat. I feel like a part of history — a teeny tiny part but a part all the same.
An asteroid (designation “Bruce 001”) is headed for Kerbin! Jebediah is sent to deflect the rock, but because Kerbal engineers are behind schedule on developing the asteroid grabber mechanism he has to make do with an improvised “claw” made of gantry components.
It’s here! The Pirate Bay Bundle (of which I spoke earlier) is out! You should click through to read MoshBoy’s post. Here are the relevant links.
It is also doing rather well on Reddit. Go give it an upvote, will you?
I am looking forward to digging through the bundle this evening!
Trademarkville is a brilliant online game.
The premise: Players describe things using words that aren’t “trademarked”. Other players see these description and try to guess the original term. When a term is guessed, all words it used are now trademarked and both the term writer and the term guesser get points.
It’s an addictive puzzle game both ways. Whether it’ll hold out over time is another question (though I suspect it gets reset frequently). At the time of writing it seems to cover only about a dozen different original “things”; enough to make its point but not enough to make it replayable.
I think my favourite description from another player was "stabby saddlemounted tournament entrant", which was (of course) knight.
