Default So the Mars Rover can snap full self portraits

I'm not sure how it did this, maybe plant a tripod in the ground and back, pose,...say cheese.

I think this is a conspiracy theory waiting to happen.

NASA should've sent two of them and turned one into a game. For $20 per month you can help pilot the rover around Mars and fight ebil Zombie alien life form.

What exactly does the thread have to do with gaming anyway?

This PC gamer does... mind you I bought that Halo 1 high rez release last summer and it looked great on my plasma tv so This should look great. Apparently Halo4 is getting great reviews, they say it captures the spirit from the 1st game which was my favourite.

The only thing I hate is trying to aim with those bloody controllers but if you go slow you can gradually work your way through Legendary difficulty.

lol. You need to take what you've learned in the game Uplink. I'll let you figure things out for yourself from there.
