Telltale Games’ shutdown has been tragic to watch unfold. There’s the unfortunate and potentially illegal denial of benefits to its laid-off employees, but it’s also sad to see the demise of a studio that nearly single-handedly reinvigorated and arguably redefined the modern adventure game.

Snowball has standard AC/DC and USB charging options, and a snowflake icon on the unit’s base pulsates to indicate when it’s being charged. Owners will need to keep Snowball away from other digital objects that may…

On the night of September 3, 1943, a Lancaster bomber dubbed F for Freddie took off from Langar airfield in Nottinghamshire, bound for Berlin. Inside was its seven-man crew, drawn from England, Scotland, and as far away as Australia, which was not out of the ordinary. What was out of the ordinary was that there were also two passengers aboard: Welsh BBC reporter Wynford Vaughan-Thomas and his sound engineer, Reg Pidsley. Vaughan-Thomas’ eye witness account of the mission, recorded in the belly of the plane by Pidsley and broadcast on UK radio the following evening after their successful return (which…
