We give thanks here at Gaming Blend and across the rest of Cinema Blend with a list of awesome things we enjoy about the entertainment and media industry. Euclideon also gives gamers a reason to give thanks, as they have made a revolutionary breakthrough with a little something called Voxel Atoms, which completely foregoes the need to use polygons in video games. Also, Ubisoft creates further between them and the PC market with extremely harsh words about piracy and PC ports.
