So yeah, technically it’s not video games. But I’ve played enough games set on Mars, or set in space, to know that this is a goddamn big deal, and I think you should know about it! Today at 3pm the Curiosity Rover will land on Mars, where it will promptly discover the last hiding place of the Decepticons and unleash an apocalyptic robot war the likes of which Earth has never seen.
Alright that’s roughly about 40% true. Here are the facts — The Curiosity Rover is essentially a remote controlled lab that can ‘rove’ around Mars, picking up stuff, analysing it, ‘do’ the science and send back information about Mars. It could also stumble across a highly advanced machine race of synthetic-organic starships known as the Reapers. This could happen.
MAYBE THEY’LL FIND A MASS RELAY.
Alright, I’ll stop being stupid because, seriously, this is a massive deal, and quite important in the grand scheme of things. I’m super excited about this.
Commentary on the above video will begin at 1.30pm AEST, so be sure to tune in then.
