Congratulations on being accepted as a test candidate for the Aperture Science Computer-Aided Enrichment Center. Please keep your hoodie on you at all times as the results of prolonged exposure of test subjects to the outside world are as yet unknown.

Gawd dawmmit, I’m not in ThinkGeek’s affiliate program yet.  also, they’re sold out right now, I’d love to have one of these.  In black and blue, not white and blue, that’s just weird.

In Star Trek Catan, players start the game with two small space stations at the intersection of three planets, with each planet supplying resources based on the result of a dice roll. Players collect and trade these resources – Dilithium, Tritanium, food, oxygen and water – in order to build spaceships that connect regions in the galaxy, establish small and large space stations at new intersection points in order to increase resource acquisition, and acquire development cards that provide victory points (VPs) or special abilities.

On a dice roll of 7, a Klingon ship swoops in to prevent resource production on one planet, while taxing spacegoers who hold too many resources.

The one new element in Star Trek Catan compared to the Settlers version is a set of character cards, each featuring one of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu, Scott, Uhura, Chekov, Chapel, Rand or Sarek. Each character card has two special powers that the holder can use on his turn, such as a forced trade.

Microsoft’s proprietary virtual currency system, Microsoft Points, will be phased out by the end of the year, according to a source with knowledge of the company’s decision. The change will affect developers for Windows Phone, the Zune marketplace and Xbox Live.

By the end of 2012, all transactions will be based on the region set on the purchasing account and real money will be used to purchase all Windows Phone content. The move puts the Windows Phone Marketplace in line with the purchasing practices used in the App Store and the Android Market.

of course, in the end this will be a good thing, but what about those 90 points that I still have on my xbox 360 account? will I get those pennies back from MS somehow?

yes please. I’m particularly interested in the rainblow zombie split she does at the end. It’s like My Little Ponies crossed with Evil Dead.
