*Actually, buy it on Steam. Monaco , the years-in-the-making heist simulator, is here, and you must play it any way you can.
The past two weeks have seen a staggering wealth of accomplished indie games added to Steam. Between Papo y Yo, Don’t Starve, Starseed Pilgrim, and Dyad, PC gamers could feasibly busy themselves until the big holiday titles with excellent games that are as different in type as they are consistent in quality (and all for less than $ 80).
In the context of this bumper crop, the release this week of Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine feels almost gratuitous, like, maybe we should save a little for the lean times. But games are ready when they're ready, and that's a particularly apt chestnut for the new cooperative heist game from the five-man San Diego developer Pocketwatch Games.
A little background: Monaco has been in development for a long time. How long? Well, it was originally grouped with the first slew of indie titles to break into mainstream consciousness; in fact, it was supposed to be the crown jewel among them. At the 2010 Independent Game Festival (sort of the Academy Awards for indies), Monaco beat now-classic indie games Super Meat Boy and Joe Danger for the grand prize. (The competition was so good that year that Limbo wasn’t even nominated for the top spot.)
But getting the game out proved to be an ordeal. What Monaco designer Andy Schatz told Gamasutra was supposed to be a six-week project turned into a four-year ordeal that included multiple stalled distribution deals and ports for potential new platforms. There was more than a little bit of a Chinese Democracy vibe around the game.
Pinterest and among its capitalists have actually been sued by a person who is declaring a few of the basic ideas behind the website were taken. As reported by AllThingsD, the suit was declared the other day on behalf of Theodore F. Schroeder, alleging “misappropriation, unjust enrichment, and breach of fiduciary task” against both Pinterest itself and one of the startup’s capitalists, Brian S. Cohen. According to the court filing, Schroeder had been working on a web application called Rendezvoo that would let individuals share information through boards in 2005, a technique that was a marked contrast to exactly what MySpace and Friendster provided at the time. Cohen then supposedly came on and partnered with Schroeder and his associates, but is alleged to have later on …

Pinterest and one of its investors have been sued by an individual who is claiming some of the basic ideas behind the site were stolen. As reported by AllThingsD, the suit was filed yesterday on behalf of Theodore F. Schroeder, alleging “misappropriation, unjust enrichment, and breach of fiduciary duty” against both Pinterest itself and one of the startup’s investors, Brian S. Cohen. According to the court filing, Schroeder had been working on a web application called Rendezvoo that would let users share information via boards in 2005, an approach that was a marked contrast to what MySpace and Friendster offered at the time.

Seen right here at crotch level with rescue workers, a 17-year old highschooler from National City, California got his arm stuck in a Coke appliance attempting to take a beverage. It took over an hour for rescue employees to relieve the boy, presumably since they didn’t merely chop his arm off like I might have.
After a failed attempt to obtain the keys for the soda pop equipment, authorities determined they had to take the rescue up a notch and started making use of axes to slice at the sides of the vending machine.
When that procedure failed, rescuers attempted using crowbars – even to no avail.
Authorities then requested a fire engine with saws and hydraulic tools. They used a rotating saw and air chisel to dismantle the vending appliance and at some point, the teen was separated from the tight opening.
The teenager was then taken into custody by police who stated he may deal with costs for petty fraud. Authorities stated the teen might also need to foot the statement for fire and medical services, in addition to damages to the soft drink machine.
You shoulda done the Dew, homie! Or, I dunno, asked your moms and dads for an advance on your allowance. You do know soda pop equipments aren’t like bite to eat vending machines, right? You can not just run an arched coathanger up there and stab a bag of Doritos. If everybody with little twiggy arms could merely jam their hand up the chute and get cost-free beverages do not you think I would certainly have my little sister and a carload of her good friends on our method to the bowling alley today? “But you do.” MY MOTHER’S CREATING ME TAKE THEM TO THE SHOPPING CENTER.
Hit the jump for a video news report, which ends with the reporters discussing their vending-machine shaking methods.

Two thieves in (where else?) New Jersey made off with a $ 148,000 Porsche Panamera after taking the car for a test drive with a salesman, and allegedly returning a fake key fob. They then returned later that night and made off with the vehicle. Not bad, guys. I’ll give you $ 1,200 for it.
How could this have happened to such an expensive car with such a (presumably) expensive security system? Simple: the car features a keyless ignition system, with no physical key. An electronic key sits in the driver’s pocket allowing one-touch access to opening the doors and turning the car on. Sounds like a fast pass for a simple switcheroo for these techy thieves
Geez, you should have made copies of their ID’s and taken pictures of them or something aside, I’ve got any even fooler-proof plan to score yourself a free Porsche. So here’s what you do: find yourself an old sugardaddy, right? Befriend him, seduce him, then live with him for the next six years, all the while slooooooowly poisoning him. When he finally croaks, TA-DA, you…WTF DO YOU MEAN HE LEFT ME OUT OF THE WILL?!?!? Oh my God, I gave the man blowies.
Thanks to Warren, who once won a beer cooler for being able to stay awake the longest during a local radio station contest. That…totally sounds worth it.
“Steal this book,” wrote Abbie Hoffman in 1970. So, today, why should we pay for our books – especially in a digital age where intellectual theft is both ubiquitous and pretty much risk free?
According to Gary Shteyngart, the best-selling author of novels like “Super Sad True Love Story” and “Absurdistan,” paying for his books means that he doesn’t have to work at a gas station or a car dealership. When we pay for one of his books, Shteyngart explained when we spoke earlier this week, it “allows me to produce more work.” Buying a book, he insists, represents an investment in creativity.
And creativity – real creativity – may be at a premium today – at least according to Shteyngart. As he argues, the Internet may be killing our eccentricity and transforming all of us into 140-character conformists. Thus, in today’s networked age, he says, there is an acute need for writers who can grab our attention and drag us away from broadcasting our boring selves on Facebook and Twitter.
This is the second in a two-part interview with Shteyngart. Yesterday, he explained why, in the not-too-distant future, everyone will know everything about everybody.
