You Could Briefly Buy and Play Cube World. Very Briefly.

by András Neltz

You Could Briefly Buy and Play Cube World. Very Briefly.

Yesterday, a post popped up on voxel-based PC adventure-RPGCube World's forums. "It's finally happened, the moment we've all been waiting for," it said, "the game is available [to] play as a Demo and paid Alpha access."

Sadly, the servers were immediately crushed by the thousands of eager players trying to gain access to the game they've been waiting years for. Since then, the shop has been taken down, and developer wollay asked for everyone's patience in a blog post, in which he said that currently, their main priority is to "fix issues with all buyers so far and make sure they get their game." The shop, he added, will "remain closed until all issues are resolved," and, presumably, until they find a way to deal with the extreme demand.

We'll be keeping an eye on Picroma's site, and will update this post should there be news.

UPDATE: Wollay updated his blog post with a link to Cube World's mini demo. The demo, which consists of a splash screen and a rotating landscape, can be used to gauge whether your PC is capable of running the full version of Cube World.

The Joke

It's commonly believed that Lorentz contraction makes objects appear flatter along the direction of travel. However, this ignores light travel times. In fact, a fast-moving butt would appear rotated toward the observer but not substantially distorted. Shakira was right.

Poker Night 2 brings a new set of wisecrackers to the table

by Katie Williams

Who told you that Adult Swim cartoon characters, ditzy cyberpunk robots, and a cuddly rabbit-and-dog detective team couldn’t live together in harmony? Because if today’s Poker Night 2 release is anything to go by, they totally can. Well, as harmoniously as a bunch of wisecracking jerks can get on while competing ruthlessly for assorted unlockable items, anyway. Check out the new cast of players in the trailer – and we’ve got a list of the prizes up for grabs, too.

Brock Samson from the Venture Bros squares off against Borderlands’ plucky Claptrap, while Ash Williams from Army of Darkness and the notorious Sam and Max are all plotting your defeat. Oh, and just to make your “Omaha Hold ‘em” losses against these fictional smartasses all the more devastating, your dealer is the soul-crushing GLaDOS.

The prizes are based on your platform of choice, so us PC gamers will be aiming to outfit ourselves in these stylish Borderlands 2 and Team Fortress 2 items. Because look: you’re nowhere near striking fear in your foes’ chests unless your Mechromancer is wearing a perpetually grinning Max Mask. There are also numerous in-game unlocks to be had, such as themed poker tables and chips. I hope Max’s face is slapped on everything.

For just a fiver, Telltale’s Poker Night 2 is available today on Steam.
