Never heard of Elite: Dangerous until today, but daaaaaaaaaaaaamn, the trailer I came across on YouTube looks sweet as all hell.
On a related note, it looks like space sims are starting to make a comeback! You have this game, X Rebirth, and the much-hyped Star Citizen, which honestly, looks almost as good as Christina Hendricks.
Saw an article on Tor.com's blog about a spoilerish detail involving the Doctor Who Christmas Special, Matt Smith, and regeneration. What pulled me back from the brink of a nerd rage was that the post cited The Mirror as the source. Supposedly, they had done an interview with Steven Moffat and he made a shocking reveal, but since it came from The Mirror, I'm calling BS because The Mirror is a tabloid like The Daily Mail. As for what Moffat allegedly said, hit the jump - I'd rather play it safe just on the off-chance that they're not bullshitting.
I'm actually surprised because it seems like they only do doodles for holidays and the 150th+ birthdays of people that I've never heard of (which is the point, of course). In any case, you can play the game by clicking on the triangle. You can even pick which Doctor you want to play as! The game itself is fairly basic, with the goal being to grab one of the letters in Google's name and make it back to the TARDIS without getting zapped by Daleks and whatever else. I've only played the first level and it was fun.
Hopefully, this won't be like three years ago when Google put a full version of Pac-Man on their front page. Supposedly, that cost over $120 million in productivity (though really, I think that's a lot overblown bullshit).
Well, it destroyed my theory that John Hurt was playing an aged Eighth Doctor. I'm guessing that they're not going to count the "War Doctor" as one of his "main" incarnations. It also explains why Eleven claimed that the War Doctor's actions weren't done in the name of the Doctor. Can't wait until the 23rd!
