The Evening Post: The Genius Design of Halo’s Weapons


Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight I am featuring the latest video from the PBS Game/Show YouTube channel, and this video is all about the Microsoft game Halo.  For over a decade Halo has been a force in the competitive shooter genre. Why? Well the simple answer is the one staring you in the face: the guns! The slightly longer answer: Halo’s Guns are balanced based on the principles of the school yard game rock, paper, scissors, but with a special covenant kicker that gives the game a surprising strategic complexity. Do you think Bungie’s intentions of perfect balance matched up with the realities of the game?  Enjoy the video!

The Evening Post: What Is The Color Of That Dress


Geek Alabama Evening Post

Seriously social media!  We have better things to talk about than what is the color of that dress!  Someone took a photo of a dress in a Roman Originals store.  It soon caused all of social media to react to it.  And if you ask me, its blue and black.

And here is even video from the YouTube channel SWNS TV confirming the color!

So, can we quit worrying about a color of a dress?

Tonight, I am featuring two videos about this topic from the YouTube channels  SciShow and AsapSCIENCE talking about this whole dress thing.  I hope this dies down soon!
