Leonard Nimoy passed away.

Leonard

To say that Star Trek influenced many nerds of today is a massive understatement.  From the over estimating engineer, the surly physician, the cocky captain to the logical science officer the show had everything that children of all ages could not only appreciate, but aspire to be.

It was sad news to wake up to find that Leonard had passed from complications with his pulmonary disease.  Even though he quit smoking some 30 years ago it simply wasn’t enough.

We are fortunate in this digital age where we can celebrate his life’s works, and remember him for the role that made him a world recognized icon.

The final frontier

Indeed a role model to many has departed to that final frontier.

Leonard Nimoy was 83.

 

Maybe in time for the Chinese New Year?

The best RPG since FFVII

So yeah I’ve got this extra copy of KOTOR kicking around and I should do some kind of giveaway or contest or something.  As a matter of fact looking at steam I have a few extra bobs and ends…. Any good suggestions?

Also for anyone who keeps up on current events and posts, you have exactly 12 hours left to partake in the humble bundle to get Star Wars KOTOR for ‘name your own price’…

Name your own price…

 

Which means you could score it for as low as say, $1 USD right now.  Personally I wanted Dark Forces as I haven’t played that one in ages.  The rest I already have, so here we are.

While it’s a great game IMHO, it is prone to some weird crashes like the cut scenes trying to change to unsupported resolutions, hardware shadow issues, and the like.  But with it’s recent ports to both iOS, and Android this game will certainly be around for quite some time.

It’s a shame there won’t be a KOTOR3.
