    Mechwarrior 5 was announced this month. Gonna get some stompy mech action with scenarios instead of just mech flavored TDM.
    I haven't seen it and my google fu is weak today. Lots of articles, no footage.

    i don't see how MWO doesn't serve the battletech lore and legacy already since it hosts most of its mechs (plus the old ones wern't turn-based)

    Battletech's roots are turn based.

    Just a different take on the world they've built. I gather you don't like turn based games much? Personally whilst I normally play rts I thought the footage they showed looked very promising- limited range and heat per turn, different weapons being useful at specific ranges (and all have imperfect accuracy), the fact terrain impacts the battle. The mechs even have different armour front vs back, giving a big bonus to getting behind your opponent. I think given all the variables it's nice you get time to really consider your moves...

    Fun and free roguelite platformer. According to the download page it works very well in wine too.

    Could tell they aren't exactly proud of this. Haven't made any kind of announcement here, comments and ratings are disabled, the game listed in the description is Planetary Annihilation...
    I believe the kids these days would use the word "yikes"

    I hadn't realized till just now that Liberal Crime Squad was updated past 2004. Apparently some people picked up the source code and updated it periodically.

    It looks like the wiki is the best place for info and downloads, unsurprisingly.

    WARNING: The scope of this game is narrower than that of real life. We have attempted to include foul language, graphic violence, politics, religion, sexual references, adult situations, narcotics, prostitution, bodily functions and bad pickup lines, but Bay 12 Games recognizes that there might be omissions which will make some players uncomfortable. In light of these facts, use your discretion when making decisions about downloading LCS.

    With all the political junk happening I started a country in NationStates to see where it places me on the political spectrum and how well my country would hypothetically run.

    It's been interesting. Arseland is, appropriately, in the top 13% of all countries for public nudity.

    I tried that game a few months ago; I found it boring and too on-rails. You can't do a thing it seems until the game gives you a message that lets you do it.

    If anyone finds a better online geopolitical game, please, do share.
