Ares was a science-fiction and fantasy-oriented game magazine
that only lasted for 17 issues and two special editions in the early 1980s. Each issue included a short story, game reviews and designer's notes, plus a complete game. The magazine was first published by Simulations Publications, Inc
. (SPI), then TSR
when they acquired SPI
. TSR folded Ares
magazine, and finally killed off the line all-together. Recently, One Small Step Games has been talking about resurrecting Ares
, but until then, Archive.org can take you back to the '80s, with scans of those issues to view and download
. [more inside]

A few months ago there was a list of links to classic video game emulators posted.
Very recently, I'm pleased to report, those links all came true
. The Internet Archive bespoke upon aforementioned consoles, computers, and mileposts on our way to the tech utopia of today, (seriously, where's my flying car?) and they asked us to do something: Imagine every computer that ever existed, literally, in your browser
. And it was so.
I have absolutely no affiliation with jscott
, btw. Thought I should disclose that.

A much anticipated birth
is expected by many
Chinese families after the New Moon on Monday, 23rd January ushers in the auspicious
Year of the Dragon. The only mythological beast in the Chinese Zodiac
, the Dragon as a symbol in China
dates back to 3000 BC and stands for
happiness, immortality, procreation, fertility and activity. This year's babies
will be Black Water Dragons, considered to be
calmer, more flexible and even more charismatic than other elements. In previous dragon years
, countries such as
China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore have all experienced
baby booms, and preparations
are in place for this year's influx
of baby dragons.

The Zoology Dragon.
"Rather than, as has previously been thought, a slow process of evolution, we now know that all animals were created by the Zoology Dragon. Unfortunately, we also know that the current Zoology Dragon is a bit shit." [Flash.]
