Watch 4-year-olds settle #TheDress debate once and for all — While the Internet was entrenched in bitter warfare over the color of a dress, children all over the world played with sock monkeys and trotted around in their Radio Flyers, or whatever it is kids do these days. Regardless, they were blissfully unaware of the conflict that nearly tore the social web asunder.

42 computers are trying to destroy one another in Civilization V — A Civilization V game of epic proportions has begun, but there are no human players. Forty-two AI-controlled civs will battle for supremacy on one enormous, Earth-shaped map, and you can watch it all unfold in real time on Twitch. There will be no global age of peace and prosperity here.

The Shrimp Cloud Kickstarter promises to stream shrimp into your home 24/7 — Tired of downloading shrimp to your computer and manually transferring them to your phone? Wish you could access your shrimp from any Internet connection, any device? The future of streaming shrimp technology has finally arrived thanks to the Shrimp Cloud. What is the Shrimp Cloud, you ask in a nervous, creeped-out kind of voice?

You can do anything you want on this virtual Windows computer — Are you on a computer right now? Would you like to use that computer to control another, slightly older computer? And would you like to do it with hundreds of Internet strangers? If you answered "yes" to all of these questions, check out, a neat little experiment that loads a virtual Windows XP machine right in your browser.

The 20 best classic MS-DOS games you can play for free online — Gamers rejoiced this week when the Internet Archive unveiled its collection of more than 2,300 MS-DOS PC games. The best part? You can play them all right in your browser for free. They're emulated-command prompts, boot screens, instruction manual DRM and all-with DOSBox software right on the page.

Alec Baldwin gives unsolicited love advice in the back of a taxi — You may know legendary hair model Alec Baldwin from stage and screen, but did you know he's also an internationally renowned relationship counselor? That's not actually true, but it's a great punchline for his new web series Love Ride, in which he gives unsuspecting couples backseat counseling sessions in an NYC cab.

What my family wants you to know about autism — Tracey and Drew Ruscil love talking about their kids. Angelina is six and her twin brothers AJ and Garrett are four. When we met them in early October, snacks and coloring books set the stage for the main event: a meeting with Sesame Street's lovable blue monster Grover.

'Divinity: Original Sin' Has the Most Innovative RPG Combat in Years — Divinity: Original Sin has been lauded by fans and critics as a breakthrough for Western RPGs, and there are three reasons. Players can interact with nearly everything and everyone in this rich fantasy world. The interpersonal relationships between your party members develop in meaningful ways as you play.

'Ori and the Blind Forest' Will Melt Your Heart and Your Thumbs — The first thing that strikes you about Ori and the Blind Forest is the gorgeous atmosphere. The dark, natural whimsy evokes a Miyazaki film, and the physics of flowing water and swaying trees alone were enough to pique my attention. But playing through two sections of a preview build brought this game's rich mechanics and difficulty to the fore.

It's Sarcasm, Charlie Brown: 'The Great Pumpkin' Meets RiffTrax — The 1966 Peanuts Halloween classic It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown probably gives you the warm fuzzies every year, but it's not exactly LOL. We've remedied this by teaming up with RiffTrax (the writers and performers of Mystery Science Theater 3000) to turn up the sarcasm on this beloved film.
