WHAT.

There's a modern remake/sequel to RUNE coming out?

It's being made by the original company?

The animations are still janky as fuck, like they were back in 2000?

AWESO-wait, what do you mean "crafting"?

"Rebuildable longhouses"? "Open world multiplayer server"?

Why is there a bow and arrow in the trailer? And no goblins?

WHAT.

You imply that one may not fetish-ify something which does not exist?

My dear boy, you have not been paying attention.
By 'exists' I mean 'has been conceived'. I don't think it's possible to fetishise something that nobody has ever thought of.

WHAT.

Yaaaay, survival MMO!
What's better than appealing to the few hundred thousand fans of the old games? Appealing to the few million new gamers who know nothing!
What's better than that? Terrible crossovers!

I'm trying to find a website that was based on learning a variety of topics. Just regular school topics. I checked it out once before and was upset with the formatting and I was just generally being a whinebaby, so I shelved the idea. It had pretty concise lessons, followed by short quizzes. It also had a comments section where smartypants people could give even better and bigger explanation on almost anything. It was shilled by a lot of youtubers, but I just can't remember the name. Not Skillshare, and google isn't turning up any inspiration, I have no clue; what the heck was the name of it? I just want to give it another go to sharpen up on some math and other things.

I'm pretty sure it'd actually be pretty easy to get folks to collectively tell employers to go fuck themself

I haven't read it, but from what I remember there's a graphic novel in which the protagonist's mother is a kind of "dream artist," spending her days letting her powerful imagination run wild whilst jacked into a computer, with paying customers around the world eagerly dreaming her dreams.
I'll have to try and find out what it was called...

Saw a T-shirt. The front said "I survived the Spellman Dunk Tank!"

The back said "The Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corporation corporate picnic".

It makes me sad... Like, I never really got into the online stuff with classic Rune, but I could definitely appreciate the direct and clean approach it took. And this really does not look or sound like that at all.

I don't want to be too pessimistic, but I'm gonna have to go with Tack on this one... This is a design direction that emphasizes "something for nobody, nothing for everybody".


In other news, we'd like to thank Tim Apple for his inspirational counsel and leadership, and for being a good friend.

From the little I've seen, you were probably happier before you knew that.

Cops have been out in force in the steeet behind where I live, caution tape and all. Canít find anything about it online after a cursory search, local tv news wonít be on Ďtil 9. Small town of ~10k people, but rural, so hopefully nothing too serious.

Local news at Nine:

And so back to our main story, Tim.

Who did, in fact, let the dogs out?

Our hector-area correspondent has been finding out.

As an aside, hopefully it's not as bad as that one time I thought "I'll go get some milk" then decided against it.
At around the same time, a man was brutally murdered on what would have been my path to the shop.

Fun times.
