Staring at Firefly Aerospace’s hot rocket-engine flames in a Texas pasture

Ars Technica - March 17, 2018 - 6:30pm

Pro tip: If you just want to see the raw engine fire, skip ahead to the ~3:15 mark. (video link)

CEDAR PARK, Texas—"Last time you came out here, it was just a pile of dirt," Firefly Aerospace CEO and rocket scientist Tom Markusic tells me. I looked it up afterwards—he's not lying. Back in 2014 when Ars Senior Editor Lee Hutchinson traveled just north of Austin to visit Markusic's then-infant new space company, he essentially got a rocket science lesson (charts and everything) and walked the patch of non-grass where the company would one day build its engine testing facilities. It looked like this...

Rum and Bones: Second Tide—A piratical tabletop MOBA

Welcome to Ars Cardboard, our weekend look at tabletop games! Check out our complete board gaming coverage at—and let us know what you think.

Rum and Bones: Second Tide is a board game that combines pirates with ideas drawn from Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (MOBAs). The concept alone is worth a million doubloons; but how well does it work in practice?

If you’re not familiar with a MOBA, it’s basically an online multiplayer arena brawl where two teams of players square off. Each controls a single character attempting to push up through “lanes” and slay AI-controlled minions as well as opposing heroes. It’s an addictive esport due to the intense level of competition accompanying RPG-like character growth. This winning formula has propelled games like League of Legends to the top of the charts.

Fortnite brings out the 10-year-old fort builder in all of us

Ars Technica - March 17, 2018 - 2:00pm

Enlarge / I'm king of the mountain!

Fortnite: Battle Royale hasn’t quite grabbed me. While the game is at least accurately named, the gunplay—originally designed to let players mow down hordes of mostly mindless AI bots—isn’t as suited for culling other human players in a Battle Royale mode. Developer Epic Games seems to know this and is tirelessly tuning the overnight smash hit’s bullet burping. And while 3.4 million concurrent players (as of February) don’t seem dissuaded by this continued fine-tuning, I still feel like the gameplay isn’t quite up to snuff.

Yet I still can’t stop thinking about the game. That’s partly because it’s seemingly the biggest game on the planet—hot on the heels of the extremely similar, previously biggest game on the planet, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. But it’s not just that. Fortnite appeals to me, personally, because it does more than remind me of my past. It gives me glimpses into an alternate present.

An engineer deferred

There was a time, long before I even cared about video games (much less wrote about them), when I seemed fated to become some kind of engineer. That was how my parents saw my future, anyway; the two farmers-turned-bankers didn’t have many positive things to say about career prospects that didn’t involve a lot of math. So my creative endeavors (mostly drawing, back then) always led to a response like, “Yeah, that would make a good hobby.”
