Albion Theatre, first raid. It is looking rather interesting.
As many of you know, I am a connoisseur of renown and a gourmet par excellence, with 2 Dunlop Stars and by appointment to the Pearly Queen of London ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pearly_Kings_and_Queens )
CastleStory is an indie game currently under development. It seems to be a combination of RTS, and tower defense with a minecraft vibe.
Check out the Kickstarter Video:
And also their First Demo:
No, not the feature that most players ask for in MMOs. That one I've given up on because if you ask them "Have you tried Lord of the Rings to see if you like housing?" they'll almost invariably say: "Lol F2P" without batting an eyelid.
No, I'm thinking of brick and mortar type housing. Or in other words, I decided to go browse for a new house this weekend and I wanted to know what you guys would expect to pay for something ... well.
I've been working on the building plans for my basement pretty much since before I left for Australia. Now that I have gone through the building code requirements and a few building books, I've started the actual design. While it is not going to be much "design" (its just two rooms and a few closets), getting the permits takes a lot of work with precisely drawn dimensions.
A long time ago, Tan posted a slew of ideas of what would make a great MMO. One of them was this one which basically went through NPC design and, in a nut-shell, inheritance of classes.
I'm guessing a lot of you are playing games now, and you just don't write much about them (just like me *blush*). So, to get the discussion rolling I thought perhaps a topic where we could post a screenshot of a game we're playing, along with some fitting and/or weird captions.

Guy had 367 PLEX he was hauling through null-sec in an unfitted frigate. Also had some blueprints and other things...
A bit crazy....
Someone, I blame Gormash, suggested this and when I did my guilty peek at what Steam has on sale, could not resist the 50% discount tag for this. What a surprising title. From the opening scene you're dragged into a Kung Fu movie complete with sub-titles. It boasts big name actors and the whole feel is ... it is really, really well done. This feels like a John Woo / Jet Li type flick with the scenery, the background chatter, everything.
