You could always convert the binary to Hexadecimal. It would take up a fourth of the space and still be robot related. Just would be as obvious to those who don't know hex.

I understand the ledge thing, but I can't really agree with the Distance->Random change. It feels like Bungie expected their raid to be much harder/time consuming and are now trying to compensate but way too late. It looks like they are learning the MMO lesson of, "Mothafuckas are crazy and are going to finish that five minutes after you put it out." At a certain point they should just go next door, knock on Blizzard's door and ask how the hell they do it. They've managed to make raids super accessible with LFR, while at the same time having heroic modes that are super challenging for both mechanics and raw gear checks. Speaking of LFR, Bungie should totally have one of those systems in game. WoW can do it with 25, beyond the time it takes to implement there should be no reason they can't match 6 people together.

If you take Northern Ireland, swap around the two words, take out the 'rthern' and 'eland' parts, swap around the 'N' and 'o', and put that all together and you get Iron. Northern Ireland is also known for the Armagh Planetarium. Planetariums allow you to view space, which contain galaxies. Iron Galaxy.

Dave Lang's job title is CEO, or Chief Executive Officer. George Hamilton is also a chief, and constable effectively means officer in the United States. Merriam Webster defines executive as "a : of or relating to the execution of the laws and the conduct of public and national affairs".

Dear god, it all makes sense.

Here is some evidence that it is probably our beloved Will Smith.

On line 5 is says 'peaked my interest' but I think what you mean is 'piqued'. That's the word from the saying anyway, even though they sound identical.

Critically, a lot of the dialogue is just describing the action that's about the occur which you should tend to avoid, because you'll describe it outside of the dialogue anyway. You should replace it with motivations and back story!

To be fair, dialog describing the action that's about to occur/is occurring is like half of JoJo's writing style.

3.141592653589, so 12 then. Pretty sure this was how many digits I could squeeze out of my TI-84 by using subtraction to see the smaller decimal numbers.

Getting way more of an Origins than a 2 vibe, which is great in my book. Also glad to see they're putting some work into the tactical view especially since the game seems to move so much faster. Here's hoping this slice is representative of the game outside of the dialog stuff.

@aegon: No worries, I'm a Computer/Electrical Engineer. The nice thing about engineering is that your skillset becomes so damn diverse. Here is a page to give you an example of what I'm talking about. With just ECE there is that many options, and there's quite a few different ways he could go for something more specialized. I'd go with RollingZepplin's suggestion and say whatever stuff you can get him into that involves building. Putting something together that can be shown off is probably a pretty dope feeling at his age.

Joking aside, at his age there's not much I can seriously recommend. While he's thinking about being a Doctor now he'll probably consider Engineering once he's in High School. Doctor just happens to be the more popular form of "Smart guy that helps people job" for kids that age. At least that's how it was for me, didn't even know what an engineer did until I was a junior in High School but once I did it was a super appealing alternative.

I'm in. Oddly enough I just started playing Skyrim again recently.
