  4. Sid Meier's Starships hands-on: A stripped down Civ and a complicated board gameSat, 28 Feb 2015 04:50:00 -0800
    Sid Meier's Starships comes out on March 12, which isn't that far away. As such, I don't really want to delve too deeply into the game because, well, I'm going to have to write the whole thing up again in two weeks when we review it. But I did spend about an hour tooling around with a pre-release build earlier this week, and it only seems right to give you an idea how this spin-off strategy game (of sorts) is shaping up.Twilight Imperium You know that absurdly-complicated board game Ben Wyatt comes up with in Parks & Rec? "The Cones of Dunshire"? If you don't watch the show, here's a clip.

    Which is better: Doritos or Mountain Dew? It's a question that's plagued philosophers since at least the time of Plato. And now, thanks to Europa Universalis IV, it's a question that's been definitively answered...through science! Yesterday Paradox released the El Dorado expansion for Europa Universalis IV which has all sorts of probably-cool things like new ocean exploration mechanics, legendary cities to discover, et cetera. What it also has is a Custom Nation designer. Being a responsible reporter, I immediately used this for the dumbest of ideas: Creating a massive Doritos Empire and a smaller but just as powerful Mountain Dew monarchy, and then making the AI fight itself.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

    The names and license plate numbers of about 50,000 Uber drivers were compromised in a security breach last year, the company revealed Friday.
