I’ve been a gamer all my life, and have played all the popular retro games when they were popular.  DOOM, Quake, Wolfenstein and many more were a daily staple of fun for me.  Well, someone thought it would be a good idea to bring a couple of these retro games back into play, but in a different way.

How about some Tomb Raider – Play here.  Lara Croft at her finest, guns blazing and taking out the bad guys while deep in the forgotten depths of some ominous cave; those were some of my fondest memories.  You can relive those memories playing Tomb Raider slots…get that treasure!  After you’re done being rough and tumble in the jungle, why not play a board game? The game is a classic 5 reel, 25 payline slot game with a dynamic story that will keep you glued to your chair.

If you’re not familiar with Lara Croft then maybe you’ve been living under a rock :) Seriously though, she is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game series Tomb Raider. She is presented as a beautiful, intelligent, and athletic British archaeologist-adventurer who ventures into ancient, hazardous tombs and ruins around the world.

Monopoly – Play here, is one of the most fun games there is.  Who needs Park Place, when you can ride the gravy train to success in this intuitive slot game? This version of Monopoloy is a 5 reel slot developed by IGT with a pretty good storyline.

It has all the old icons you’re familiar with from the boardgame that you move around the board with. Plus it has bonus rounds and a Level Up Plus feature that lets you save your progress.

While you’re having your fill of gaming, hang out over at Slacker Radio and listen to some of your favorite tunes to keep the excitement alive!

Was Roswell UFO Crash A Secret Nazi Aircraft? [Huff Post]
A film, supposedly called “UFOs and the Third Reich,” is promoting another theory about the Roswell UFO crash: A 10-foot-wide, 12-foot-high, anti-gravity, bell-shaped craft, combining rocket and helicopter technology, created by Nazi Germany, fell into the hands of the U.S. in 1943, who further developed the project. An alleged test of the Bell resulted in its crash, which became the event that started the Roswell UFO saga.

Why the French state has a team of UFO hunters [BBC]
Thousands of UFO sightings are reported every year but not many countries are willing to spend money investigating them – there is just one dedicated state-run team left in Europe. Is France onto something?

At the heart of this new clock is the element strontium. Inside a small chamber, the strontium atoms are suspended in a lattice of crisscrossing laser beams. Researchers then give them a little ping, like ringing a bell. The strontium vibrates at an incredibly fast frequency. It’s a natural atomic metronome ticking out teeny, teeny fractions of a second.
