Commodore 64 is returning as a mini console with dozens of preloaded games

Way back before cryptocurrency mining was a thing, and even before the advent of the 3D graphics card, there was the Commodore 64, an intriguing system with a fleshed out catalog of games. Now more than 30 years later, the Commodore 64 is still considered the best selling PC of all time, and it's making a comeback as a mini console.

Steamed Hams but it's a Team Fortress 2 map

Well, you can add Team Fortress 2 to the growing list of entries into the Steamed Hams meme. A mapper called Whomobile has created a Steamed Hams map for TF2, in which players collect steamed hams and deliver them to Skinner's house, which intermittently catches fire. Players, upon dying, drop steamed hams. (That's what Skinner calls hamburgers. It's an Albany expression.)

Murderous Pursuits is a Victorian-era multiplayer assassination game in the style of The Ship

Murderous Pursuits is a Victorian-era multiplayer assassination game in the style of The Ship

Remember 2006's The Ship? It was a rather good assassination game about identifying your target (another player) among a sea of NPCs milling about a cruise liner and taking them out without anybody noticing, all the while making sure you didn't end up with a knife in your back. Blazing Griffin bought the game in 2011 and took to Kickstarter to fund a follow-up called The Ship: Full Steam Ahead, but fell short of its goal. However, now the developer is back with Murderous Pursuits, which looks impressive and is a sequel to The Ship in all but name.
