S.A.M. #12: Strange Beauty

A rare and very unusual aircraft with a dramatic story behind its wings:

In 1926 a proposal was made that the RAF should attempt a non-stop flight to India. This would not only be operationally significant, but enormously prestigious to the service if successful. It would at the same time establish a new world long-distance record. The chosen vehicle for this attempt was the…

Lord K's Garage #100: STAR RIDE

Two years, one hundred weekly columns... This Friday, I owe you something special.

Dieselpunk Shooter in Development

This is the first I've heard of it but apparently No More Heroes developer Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality, the people who brought us Imperium Galactica, have decided to team up in order to develop a dieselpunk based shooter.

The trailer actually reminds me of some of the nicer parts of Final Fantasy 7/8 and the world seems to make a nice use of bright colors. It's being released as a downloadable title on XBLA and PSN with a release date of this Winter.

Check out…

The SVT-40

Vasily Zaytsev, the prolific Soviet sniper of World War II, liked the rapid-fire ability of the SVT-40. Even with his beloved Mosin-Nagant racking up most of his enemy kills, the Hero of the Soviet Union believed in the rapid follow-up shots of the semi-automatic rival of the M1 Garand.

As a title for this picture, I first thought about "Tome Wilson Managing Dieselpunk Inc." or "It's lonely at the top", but finally decided for "Tycoon".
