Part of what makes the Sims 4 community so vibrant are the challenges people come up with—or as I like to call them, fun excuses to be disturbingly morbid without any guilt. Since Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 was announced, I’ve had vampires on my brain a lot, and I realized that I haven’t really explored the Sims 4 Vampires game pack. So when I came across the vampire challenge I decided to give it a shot.The challenge is to create a vampire legacy, beginning with one vampire and one young adult human (that serves as their personal snack machine) living in the same house. When that human become an elder (and if you haven't turned them into a vampire), they must be replaced by a new, young adult sim. The goal is to grow your vampire bloodline over five (human) generations.So, challenge accepted. I made my vampire sim, got my on-tap food source, and then it all went to hell. But I don’t blame myself for what happened.I blame Ruth.I'm the kind of … [Read more...] about I tried the Sims 4 vampire challenge but ended up hoarding people in my basement

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Welcome, friends, to the greatest comeback in sports history.After all the scandals, all the injuries, all the surgeries, all the drama, all the he’s-done declarations, Tiger Woods has won the Masters. In 2019.Nearly 11 years after his last major victory — the longest drought in golf history — Woods won the Masters by 1 stroke with a bravura 70 final round, keeping his head while the best of the next generation of golfers lost theirs. Six golfers held at least a share of the lead over the day, five tied with only a handful of holes left. But as it was in 1997, so it was 22 years later: Woods walking off the 18th green to delirious cheers, another green jacket awaiting him — his 15 major win in total.With all due respect to the vast talents of Brooks Koepka, Francesco Molinari et. al., there are two storylines at every Masters: Tiger Woods, and everyone else. That’s not media bias or wishful thinking, that’s objective … [Read more...] about Tiger Woods victorious in the Masters for the fifth time
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate passed a sweeping criminal justice bill Tuesday that addresses concerns that the nation's war on drugs had led to the imprisonment of too many Americans for non-violent crimes without adequately preparing them for their return to society.Senate passage of the bill by a vote of 87-12 culminates years of negotiations and gives President Donald Trump a signature policy victory, with the outcome hailed by scores of conservative and liberal advocacy groups. The House is expected to pass the bill this week, sending it to the president's desk for his signature.The bill gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts. It also reduces the life sentence for some drug offenders with three convictions, or "three strikes," to 25 years. Another provision would allow about 2,600 federal prisoners sentenced for crack cocaine offenses before August 2010 the opportunity to petition for a reduced penalty. 13 … [Read more...] about Senate overwhelmingly passes criminal justice reform bill
Christmas has come a month early for owners of exceptionally fluent/friendly/fetching flight sim Aerofly FS 2. The overgrown damselfly pictured above is the sim’s first rotary wing aerodyne. Priced at an irresistible 0 GBP (0 USD) and engineered with help from a chap who’s logged an impressive 16,000+ flight hours in real whirlybirds, it’s a faithful facsimile of a Robinson R22 according to developer IPACS, and “poetry in motion” or “happiness bottled” according to me. The update that added the R22 also added over 120 heliports to the sim’s steadily increasing range of high-detail scenery areas (Outside of the Southwestern United States and DLCed regions like Switzerland, the Netherlands and South Florida, Aerofly FS 2’s scenery is extremely basic). For those unfamiliar with chopper terminology, heliports are the officially approved landing pads you use when you’re feeling straitlaced or there’s no more … [Read more...] about The Flare Path: Collective Irresponsibility
REINSTALLReinstall invites you to join us in revisiting PC gaming days gone by. Today, Pip revisits Irrational's classic immersive sim. Ken Levine’s slightly overlong adventure about killing a man who wants to live the libertarian geneticist dream of playing office minigolf at the bottom of the ocean (or something like that) holds up surprisingly well to a contemporary visit. I mean, the whole thing falls into the bin by the time you fight an Ayn Rand book cover and then sit through a Hallmark commercial or a vague nuclear threat, but still. This is a reinstall, but only in the most technical sense. I have indeed previously installed the game, but it led with an injection scene. That meant I quit instantly while trying not to throw up. Several years later and I’m marginally better at stomaching on-screen injections, so I have returned to Rapture to see what all the fuss is about. The opening segment has you descending to Rapture in a bathysphere. It’s a … [Read more...] about More than a decade on, does Bioshock still hold up?
