    Sep 22, 2021 | 20:54 pm

    Historical strategy game Victoria 3 will simulate the slave trade. Should it? Paradox Interactive‘s highly-anticipated grand strategy title Victoria 3 is set to ship next year. It’s been over a decade since the franchise’s last title launched and fans are chomping at the bit to see what’s changed.  One thing that hasn’t changed in Victoria 3 is that it includes a fully-functioning, (somewhat) historically accurate depiction of the global slave trade as it existed at the beginning of the titular Victorian era. Victoria 3 is a historical nation simulator where you take control of an entire country and try to shape its destiny. At the beginning of the game, a given nation’s…This[…]

    Sep 22, 2021 | 16:48 pm

    First impressions: Everything Microsoft announced at its 2021 Surface event Microsoft announced a ton of products today. Some were new, some were major updates, and some were minor refreshes.

  • 3D-printed rocket engines are powering the commercial space age

    Sep 22, 2021 | 13:05 pm

    3D-printed rocket engines are powering the commercial space age The volatile nature of space rocket engines means that many early prototypes end up embedded in dirt banks or decorating the tops of any trees that are unfortunate enough to neighbor testing sites. Unintended explosions are in fact so common that rocket scientists have come up with a euphemism for when it happens: rapid unscheduled disassembly, or RUD for short. Every time a rocket engine blows up, the source of the failure needs to be found so that it can be fixed. A new and improved engine is then designed, manufactured, shipped to the test site and fired, and the…This[…]
