In case any among you are not yet aware, there is a new game that is going to be released on Steam tomorrow (September 14th; link is to the app page on Steam), and it is (in my opinion) brilliantly amazing! Its called "FTL: Faster Than Light", and it is a space game in which you command a ship. Instead of the average 'fighter' style spaceship game however, FTL does a nice job of making it seem more like a game of SimCity. TotalBiscuit has done a play-through (see video below) and simultaneous review of FTL, and he says that it "feels like a game of XCOM at times (the original, not the remake)". Basically you are carrying data that is vital to the remaining Federation fleet. You have to make it past a bunch of galaxies to deliver this data safely, and the Rebels are in constant pursuit from behind you (so you can't take your time and explore every sector to the max). Each time you warp to a new sector you meet a random encounter; its sort of like D&D in that each encounter is slightly randomized and when (read: IF) you win each battle, you gain a bit of 'scrap', which can be used a currency and use that to purchase upgrades for your ship (from a menu, only for things like power and performance) and equipment (such as new weapons) when you come across shops. I personally will be looking to buy this as soon as I'm able (it only costs $10 USD), but I am a sucker for games like this (XCOM or SimCity based games)... XD UPDATE: The game will be on sale at 7am September 14th, EST. Technically today for me, but it may/may not be depending on where you live. :3 Also, it says here that the game will cost $9.99 USD on Steam, GOG.Com, and their website (depending on how you would like to purchase it), and that there will be a 10% discount for the first week that it is out! (I do not know if the quote of $9.99 USD includes this discount and it will go up later, or if it will only be ~$8.99 USD for the first week and then be $9.99 USD after; I only know it says there will be a discount for the first week)
I have seen that many of you have issues finding the minecraft folder on a mac, so here it is. First of all you will need to know what version/software you are using. Click the apple logo (top left) -> About this mac -> More info... (it will be at the bottom). For OSX Snow Leopard : Finder -> User -> Library -> Application Support -> Minecraft. For OSX Lion : 1) Click anywhere on your screensaver (so the top bar says finder beside the apple) 2) Go to the top bar and click on "Go" 3) Scroll down and click on "Go to Folder..." 4) Once the text box has appeared type this in it : ~/Library/Application Support/ From there just scroll down till you find the minecraft folder. If you can't open you minecraft.jar just rename it to minecraft.jar.zip, then double click and a normal minecraft.jar folder will appear. If you wish to permanently Un-hide the Library, check out lttf's topic on the following link. Hope this helps you guys out
Steve jobs has died at the age of 56 of pancreatic cancer. Chairman, Co-Founder and former C.E.O. of Apple and the creator of Great everyday gadgets that have become part of our everyday lives like the Ipod, Iphone and Ipad (not the Mac, Macs suck) and have changed the way we will think about technology forever. Steve jobs has been battling Pancreatic cancer for several years and several years ago received a liver transplant. In August, Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO, handing the reins to Tim Cook.

The Staff here at JR are deeply saddened by this news and our condolences go out to his wife Lauren and four children.
