I loved X-COM: UFO Defense. OK, I played the second installment, but I loved the game. So when I saw on Kickstarter a book on the game designer of the game, I jumped at it.
There are a few names in game design that I recognize, and Sid Meier is definitely in the top 3 for me. I remember the name from the first Civilization, and it was just awesome. So what about a book on his life? Sign me in.
It’s time for the annual review of the Lego Technic flagship, and this year Lego partnered with Liebherr for an impressive excavator.
I started my Lego adult path with the Mk2 crane, and now Lego has a new crane. This one is bigger, meaner, in some aspects, but hopefully better as well. Bigger wheels, but half of them, red instead of yellow, broader, and double crane boon instead of a triple one, so a different set of compromises. How did it go?
This year, Lego published a set based on the Bugatti Chiron, one of the craziest cars, and built near my home town. It’s the second set in the Technic car collection series, and contrary to the Porsche, the color is inspired by a gorgeous real life car (I don’t think that the real Porsche exists…).
