Holy shit, what a ride.

We saw 32 different bands. Met people from 12 countries and 14 states. Danced a folk metal jig with a storm trooper and a guy in a banana suit on the top deck of a cruise ship at 3:30am. Watched a mosh pit in a hot tub. Ate too much, slept far too little (earliest to bed in the last four days: 4am). Met a ton of band members just hanging around the ship. Fleshgod Apocalypse joined us at our table for lunch, we chatted with At The Gates in the customs line, Gregor and Hamish from Vallenfyre sat down with us for a drink before their set, I confirmed my suspicion that Dani Filth is an total douchecanoe, and bumped into quite a few others as well.

Best band: Turisas, with Epica coming in a far distant second.
Worst band: Dead Cross (Dave Lombardo's new band, sadly awful)

I knew this was going to be fun, but I was fully unprepared for the level of awesome chaos that ensued. In a word: EPIC.

FFIX is out for both iOS and Andrid.  GO GO GO!

EDIT:  Finally got around to playing some last night.  This is a VERY well-done port.  The character models look amazing, the control scheme is much improved from the clusterfuck that was FF VII, it auto-saves on every screen change, and has a bunch of other small touches that make it damn near perfect (i.e. a button specifically for card games, "no encounter" and "turbo speed" buttons, etc.).  Only gripe is that the backgrounds are still a little lo-res compared to the character models, but that's a minor nitpick.

Well, here's some great news:

Bryan Fuller will be the showrunner.

This is the best possible choice. Bryan Fuller—who worked on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager back in the day, before going on to create Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and Hannibal—will be the showrunner of the new Star Trek TV show.

In a statement, Fuller was quoted as saying:

My very first experience of Star Trek is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls. Before seeing a frame of the television series, the Star Trek universe lit my imagination on fire. It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand-new iteration of Star Trek with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no Star Trek series has gone before.
Fuller has been trying to get a Star Trek series off the ground for nearly a decade. Back in 2008, he told IF Magazine:

I told my agent and told the people of J.J. Abrams team I want to create another STAR TREK series and have an idea that I’m kicking around. I would love to return to the spirit of the old series with the colors and attitude. I loved VOYAGER and DEEP SPACE NINE, but they seem to have lost the ‘60s fun and I would love to take it back to its origin.
The new Trek series (which is being executive produced by Alex Kurtzman) will premiere on CBS in 2017, before moving to CBS’ digital “CBS All Access” platform.

Entertainment Weekly points out that Fuller has teased a few different ideas for Star Trek TV shows in the past. At one point, he said it would be interesting to see how the Next Generation era looks, in the altered timeline of the recent J.J. Abrams films. In another interview, he said it would be cool to have a show that follows another starship, the U.S.S. Reliant, and that he’d love to cast Angela Bassett as the captain and Rosario Dawson as the first officer.

Fuller is already showrunner of the American Gods series on Starz, and is also spearheading the new version of Amazing Stories.

Wow! Loved Pushing Daises and Hannibal. This is fantastic news. When Fuller is allowed to do his thing (creative freedom) great things happen....whether people watch the show or not

Did anybody bother to look at the Official Design Works book that's included with the PC version?  It's actually a really cool and thorough 313 page art book.  Lots of paintings and renderings and concept art with some commentary alongside it.

The only problem is that it's a giant PDF and viewing those things just chugs regardless of PC specs.   disgust

I need to look at the community configurations. I found the official configuration to be pretty bad. The XCOM 1 configuration was really good and I'm not sure why they couldn't keep the basics of that intact, unless it's not flexible enough to allow for it. I'm using the keyboard - the horror!

Ack. I kept myself on media blackout for Xcom 2, as the first title was one of my favorite games of the past few years. Bought it sight unseen from Steam, just loaded it up on my HTPC....and realized that it doesnt have xbox controller support.

My own fault, as the store page clearly does not list it, but I never thought a sequel would take gameplay options out. Is anyone using the Steam gamepad? If so, does it work well?

I'm using the steam controller and it works well. There is even an official configuration from Firaxis on there as well as the community ones that improve on it even further

Excellent! Looks like its time to invest in a controller...
