Dino D-Day: Jurassic Park meets WWII shooters

Free-to-play weekend on Steam, and it's only 99 cents right now.

It's Team Fortress 2 with dinosaurs. I've been playing for hours and it's fun as hell.

Re: Rant Thread : For all your obscenity screaming needs

I'm named Jonathan but usually give my name as Jon, partly because it's shorter and partly because I want to see how they'll spell it. I get about 85% "John" and 15% "Jon".

I'll fucking say it. Watch Alien. Not only is it basically the first space horror film, but it's also a film written without gender distinction. The parts could be played by anyone.

So few things about that picture make sense. It's hard to imagine what was going through the artist's mind. Like, "I'm gonna put a yellow triangle above this woman's head. Yeah, that looks good."

Some of the keys on my laptop stop working every once in a while and you have to put pressure on a certain part of the keyboard to fix it. I think it's an issue with the ribbon cable underneath but it doesn't look like something I can fix. I'm planning on getting a new laptop as a graduation present.

It would be cool to have a pair of glasses that can arbitrarily map incoming light to the visible spectrum.
