Telltale's episodic adapation of The Walking Dead wins Game of the Year award.Telltale's episodic adapation of The Walking Dead wins Game of the Year award.

If you haven't played any games from Telltale now would be a good time to start. I've been a big fan of Telltale early on as they managed to take some classic yet seemingly abandoned LucasArts franchises (Sam and Max, Monkey Island) and restore them with new storylines and fun adventures. That being said, I've heard wonderful things about their latest offering with Kirkman's series and how it takes adventure gaming to an entirely different level. Truth be told, I haven't tried out The Walking Dead yet but I plan to in the near future. Congratulations to the entire Telltale Games team!

I often wonder what would happen if you happen to come upon a conundrum whilst hiking in Conundrum Hot Springs, Colorado. The answer? NOTHING. Thank you, I'll be here all night.

Turns out that walking in circles is a natural thing.Turns out that walking in circles is a natural thing.

Researchers tested the popular notion and found that not only do people walk in circles if they have no guidance, but they do not favor left-handed circles, a common myth spurred from the fact that a heart leans to a person's left.
