I'm reading that the story in Spec Ops is supposed to be good. Anyone played it through yet?

Been inspired by the Backloggery site to actually finish games instead of just dabbling around here and there. But I'm a very slow player and don't really do anything for more than an hour, recreationally, 'til I'm bored and wanna do something else. Anyways, I just finished Counter-Strike: Condition Zero after about ten years of playing now & then, so that was exciting.

Currently going through a racing game, Flatout: Ultimate Carnage on the PC, which is a remake of the first Flatout game with fancier graphics. Really enjoying it. There's always the question of throttling up as much as possible and slamming into the walls a lot, or using more finesse and picking your way through the obstacles carefully. I'm usually getting faster times doing the later, and it's more of a challenge.

Hey, have you guys read any Jacques Vallée stuff?

I read and liked this one a lot. Franken Gibe recommended his stuff to me initially, that's why I read it. He's big on the interdimensional hypothesis.

Those are really top-notch visuals, thanks. Have you seen those two others?

That's a cool story.

Speaking of DARPA, I remember a year or so ago there was notice in the press that they'd be revealing some new breakthrough in biofuel soon. Did that happen and I missed it?
