Snub Fighter Star Wars Fan Re-edit

A really great Star Wars fan edit.
Luke snatches defeat from the jaws of victory in this re-edit of "A New Hope"
After boasting to the more experienced pilots of Red Squadron, he arrives late for the attack, disobeys orders and ignores Obi-Wan's repeated pleas to use the force. Han Solo is not impressed with Luke and must now deal with a vengeful Darth Vader and all Red Five can do is watch from above as the veteran Red Leader calmly demonstrates the correct way to fire a proton torpedo down a thermal exhaust port.

Kinect And 3D Space

The Kinect has a camera and a 3D depth sensor, so when you are waving your arms around it can translate them to an avatar in a game. However since Kinect got hacked, we will start seeing some interesting applications. This video isn't an application, but it is a cool way of displaying the two forms of visual data the Kinect is receiving.

Game Complexity

I bought X3 Terran Conflict the other day because I felt like a complicated space simulation game. But it still feels very abstracted, I wonder if anybody will ever make a complex space sim game like DCS: A-10C Warthog.
