Some useful tips

Now that the wait is almost over these pointers may be of interest

•   To prevent disappointments, please check the minimal system specs first.
•   The first time, MilOps will take longer to start. This is because it optimizes the GPU specific code for your system. Subsequent runs will be fast.
•   The QuickGuide contains an explanation of the benchmark-run results if you're interested.
•   The interaction possibilities during roaming are also explained in the QuickGuide .
•   In case you encounter a problem, our support page will be your quickest way to a solution.

Deep Rock Galactic update adds new mission type, makes beards more glorious
Deep Rock Galactic

This week's update to Deep Rock Galactic, the co-op mining-themed horde shooter, was a beefy one: it added a new mission type, a new enemy and, most importantly, more beautiful beards.

The new mission type is called Salvage Operation, and involves the clean-up of a failed mining expedition. You and your party has to salvage three robots, escort them to an escape pod, repair the escape pod, and then hold off waves of enemies as it awaits blast-off. You can see it in action in the trailer above.

You'll have to contend with a new enemy called the Mactera Grabber, which will snatch you up from the floor, lift you up and then drop you, either onto some hard rocks or into a gaping chasm. The world is more dangerous, too, with new environmental hazards including blinding sand storms, wind tunnels, and red-hot, explosive magma rock.

Now onto the important bit: beards. The update adds proper bouncy beard physics, which look especially glorious in the anti-gravity segments. But it also deepens the appearance customisation system so that you can individually tweak hair, eyebrows, sideburns, moustaches and beards, which all have new options added.

If you want the full list of changes, including buffs, nerfs, and performance fixes, then read the patch notes (above).

'39 Days to Mars: Additional Victorian Adventures'

Free Content Update Arrives July 23rd for Windows, Mac and Linux

New puzzles coming soon for acclaimed co-op adventure game

June 19th, 2018 -- Developer It's Anecdotal is excited to announce a new and free content release for its PC puzzle-adventure game 39 Days to Mars is set to launch July 23rd on Steam, Humble Store and!

Dubbed 'Additional Victorian Adventures' and free for all current owners of 39 Days to Mars, the update will contain a variety of new puzzles cleverly-devised for co-op play -- join Sir Albert Wickes and The Right Honourable Clarence Baxter once again for another set of exciting 19th century adventures!

39 Days to Mars is a 1-2 player co-operative adventure game set in an alternate reality some 150 years in the past. You're tasked with piloting the HMS Fearful -- a masterpiece of unreliable engineering -- on its maiden voyage to Mars. When the steam engine runs out of coal, the ship's cat shreds the navigation chart, and the tea gets cold, it becomes clear that interstellar transportation isn't a walk in the park. It will take the talents of two working together on a mix of puzzles and action sequences to get to Mars in one piece (let alone in 39 days).

39 Days to Mars is available on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. A console release is also in the works for later this year.

Strictly speaking more of a tri-corn than a bi-corn, it does have a distinct frontal point, whereas a bi-corn worn cross-wise with the points over the ears is flat fronted. 

I do wonder how the provenance of these caps can be verified, has anyone actually check the DNA trapped in the sweat band.  i'd certain want to know that before parting with a quarter of a million quid for a bit of old felt.
