    Engineering is rough. My best friend studied Comp E / Electrical E in Undergrad and Biomedical E in Grad. Good decision not to do that abroad :)

    It's been a long time since I played, but there was one castle kind of thing that I was like haha damn

    like you know how the towers have those weird things jutting out that look like they serve no purpose at all, except to help you climb?

    well turns out those actually exist and are not just for gameplay

    If I see it again I'll make sure to take a picture

    also the San Marco Plaza thing in Venice looks just like I remembered from AC2, even though it's been a long time.

    That does sound cool. So AC2 is a good alternative to actually travelling to Italy. Good to know. Btw, what did you need help with yesterday, I was afk.

    I was trying to buy the Wrath of the Lamb dlc for Binding of Isaac, but steam was rejecting my card because my IP didn't match the billing address, so I was going to ask for it as a gift then I'd pay you back with something when I get home.

    I got someone else to help me out with it, though.

    Pretty spiffy -- someone did a Lego re-creation of a Giger painting. http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/31...-of-h-r-giger/

    So, is Prometheus an Alien prequel or not? I thought it was originally going to be, but then was announced as only being in the same universe (exploring other "Space Jockey" activities). Yet people still say it's a prequel. I'm confused and possibly misinformed.

    Well, this helps. From imdb:
    Was originally intended as a prequel to Ridley Scott's Alien, but Scott decided to turn it into an original film with Noomi Rapace (who was already set to star) still in the cast as one of five main characters. Some time later however it was confirmed that while the movie will take place in the same universe as Alien and greatly reference that movie, it will mostly be an original movie and not a direct prequel.

    These aren't spoilers but acquired knowledge from the ongoing ARG campaign what has been running. There are no specifics from the film only information which may enrich the backstory content which some people like.

    Spoiler


    Hope that is of use.

    Spoiler is part speculation, part trailer, of the Promotheus movie, in regards to whether it's an Alien prequel.
