EA Europe struggles squeezing out Spore


Failhammer Offline: Age of Registration

Thousands of paying customers for the GOA run European edition of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning are still trying to get into the Open Beta.

We've been promised a fix at 15:00, but then we were promised a working system on Sunday morning. There's a full article in this tbh and a bunch of comedy memes all over the place.

Star Wars animation heads for the silver screen

DARPA to create brain-chipped cyborg moths


Missing the point

"For example we have used horses and _elephants_"

Cyberphants > Cybinsects

Greek cops to paintball rioting fans


Like being "punched"?

"I've been paintballing and being hit by one of those pellets is like being punched.."

When did you last get punched? Schoolgirls do not count.

A Biker Grove style blinding would be a pretty poor souvenir mind...

US team creates malaria-resistant mosquito


Egg laying

I'd be more concerned if they demonstrated a high egg yield in the non-malaria infected tests. Surely this just indicates that the Malaria resistant species breed "more" than the control species when exposed to malaria.
