Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Ca sent Noël dans les rues et je suis saisi de nostalgie anticipée pour ces dernières fêtes dans le monde libre.
Remember when Twitter was repositioning itself as a news app just a few months ago? I guess that’s out the window now? (Thank god.)
How I wish I could have positive expectations about the writing.
To celebrate TGA nominations Dishonored is finally 40€ on Steam — meanwhile Eve Valkyrie, included in the list, remains at 60€ 😂
I love how recruitment in No Man’s Sky simply decides to ignore the old “learn alien languages one word at a time” mechanic ¯\(ツ)/¯
I thought No Man’s Sky would be a good podcast game but it might be a bad fit — it’s more zen meditation than mindless distraction.
‘Fascism’ is still our #1 lookup.
# of lookups = how we choose our Word of the Year.
There’s still time to look something else up.
I’m fascinated by the Glixel podcast. They’ve got individual mics and a “producer” and still manage to make the worst audio in the world.
The idea of the three biggest species each putting all their eggs in one basket rather than cryosleeping together is so depressingly 2016.
Ce 31, dites non à 2017.
On perdra encore une vieille star tous les 3 jours mais Trump, Brexit et Le Pen se conjugueront toujours au futur.
Thought I’d set a network share on my Steam screenshots directory so I’d post them from my Mac while playing but no of course it’s a mess.
Could you make a permadeath shooter where you only have one life per day — maybe even per week — or would players quickly lose interest?
I really like Titanfall’s traversal but not so much the titans, so I guess I should play a recent Call of Duty instead?
Disclaimer: I’m not posting screenshots of No Man’s Sky because I enjoy the game, but posting them is the only thing remotely fun about it.
L’autre jour j’ai rêvé que j’avais un gaufrier, à ce stade ça veut vraiment dire qu’il faut que j’en achète un, non ?
😮 (Honestly don’t know if I trust computers enough for that)
I’m glad to have a reason to pick Lighthouse tracking over cameras but I was hoping to avoid HTC — and the Vive still isn’t on amazonꓸfr.
Internet: “Check out Amazon Go! It eliminates cashiers.”
Me, thinking: We need to start talking about guaranteed minimum income YESTERDAY.
Même en lisant une explication de texte convaincante, je ne suis pas sûr d’aimer le final de Westworld. (A part Maeve, toujours.)
Le revival Gilmore Girls rappelle surtout que la série avait commencé à partir en couille bien avant le départ des Palladino, non ?
I just spent half an hour pattering around Meadow as a tiny badger because I forgot on PC you have to press Shift to run.
I don’t wanna say the way Meadow’s animation system handles turning while running ruins the game for me, but.
Played Shelter 2 again to compare and either Meadow’s animation/camera is screwed up or that’s just how it is when forced to play with kbm.
TV execs, showrunners & writers on why rape used so often on TV & whether progress is being made regarding its use https://t.co/AcAOiwjYLD
Un chaton tout mignon m’a souri à Truffaut, heureusement que c’était un chartreux à mille et quelques euros 😍
Does Steam really need an email confirmation and a 15-day hold period when I sell a couple cards whose market value hovers at ten cents?
Idea: deterministically convert key fingerprints to faces to take advantage of our innate ability to recognise faces; modulo the faceblind.
Please tell me someone is working on a No Man’s Sky MMO where each player builds their own planet — topography, ecosystem, landmarks.
I don’t care about Facebook’s summary of my year, but I’d love it if Steam did one: what I played, what my friends did, weird achievements.
Good thing iPhone & Watch timers don’t communicate as there’s no conceivable way I could keep track of 2 things simultaneously on 1 device.
Samsung: deactivates dangerously faulty device, saving injuries / lives
Twitter: what this shows is that I don’t have property rights
I’m really itching to find an application for Chernoff faces but my main project is a dating site and I can hardly go and add extra, synthetic faces to the profiles.
I really enjoyed Spacechem until it lost me with the inability to debug each reactor independently from the others.
Going through old papers my dad gave me, I found his map of the internet as of May 1973.
The entire internet. https://t.co/0krvYoRGav
Il y a plein de choses très réussies dans la première heure de Finding Dory #off #off #off #off #off #off #off #off #off #off #off #off
Les films de SF en images de synthèse encore découpés avec une logique d’alternance plan large maquette / plan moyen cascadeurs au lieu d’en profiter de ce que tout soit virtuel pour faire des mouvements continus établissant l’action 🙄
“Maybe it’s time I start buying the couple comics I read… oh, Comixology is an Amazon company, the app doesn’t have a Buy button. I tried.”
I don’t care for `if (CONST == $var)`-style conditions, but I just discovered they’re called Yoda Conditions and now I am completely torn.
I was looking forward to playing the Forzas on my PC with a steering wheel; it didn’t occur to me that force feedback wouldn’t be good 😶
TIL Apple actually ships two different types of USB-C charging cables. Hope the margins are worth it…
People download iMessage apps from the main App Store and have no idea how to access them. This is 100% on Apple. https://t.co/p70PrRA1Rg
Pourquoi David Hallyday joue un garde anonyme dans Mockingjay Part 2, et surtout pourquoi je l’ai reconnu alors qu’il est au loin et dit cinq mots ?!
tap What, no tap Huh? tap Wait, this isn’t “Lock Watch” tap Where the fuck did the “Lock Watch” button go? And who needs quick access to AirPlay in their Control Center?!
(I couldn’t be bothered to update to the “right” 10.12.1.)
Funny that Trump can’t bring himself to boycott the service. Or that Evan Spiegel wasn’t invited despite the debate-day filter on Snapchat.
But yeah if your Medieval Fantasy game has potatoes, corn, tomatoes, chocolate, etc. and a stunning lack of people of color? It’s wrong.
When I last had a PC, CRTs were the norm. I just found out that everything doesn’t explode anymore when you pick a resolution too high 😮
I thought 10.2.2′s “Notification Center remembers which pane you used last” would suck, then I forgot about it, and turns out it sucks.
I hadn’t driven a car in real life for quite a while and, not gonna lie, I’ve had to actively remind myself I wasn’t in a video game.
Le voyage à Ikea de l’enfer, parti à 14:00, rentré à 20:00, ai-je besoin de préciser que bien sûr j’ai oublié quelque chose ?
Damn, Watch Dogs 2 and Steep are already -33% on UPlay?! And FC:Primal for 20 €… but buying games outside of Steam is such a bother 😕
Of all the crap Windows does I can’t get over launching an app and nothing visible happens for thirty seconds, even in the task bar.
The dissonance of a precise waypoint appearing on the map after a conversation that never specified a location always bothers me #lastRT
Good range, but why no widescreen at the top? 😕
“the problems Nintendo is encountering are Apple’s fault, and they are faults…many of us have been pointing out for years” ― @StratecheryMO https://t.co/AmR5LhBGP3
I’ve gotten my PSVR to work(ish) on PC and — even accounting for the hack — UX with SteamVR games is generally terrible, isn’t it?
I wish I didn’t have issues with the locomotion but the RE7 PSVR demo works great and… well, it works, and why would you want that.
it’s worth going over Wikipedia’s “List of common misconceptions” to check your knowledge. here’s some I had wrong. https://t.co/6HOGbRkoVK https://t.co/aijeDQnyVU
On this day 20 years ago, Apple announced it was going to buy NeXT (and with it Steve Jobs) for $400M. Greatest deal ever made?
“It’s very hard to stick with a character in a game that just seems to be having no fun at all”
That’s why 3 is the only Far Cry I’ve enjoyed, for instance. It’s particularly important to open-world games you’re stuck in for 30+ hours.
All this nerd rage over the Tracer comic would make me want to give Blizzard all my money if I wasn’t already doing that.
We must revoke the internet privileges of anyone who misuses ‘gaslight’ before it’s too late and we lose this beautiful word.
Sniffing my computer’s exhausts because I’m not sure if a capacitor exploded or a compacted soda can expanded spontaneously in the trash.
Made the mistake of tapping “Update All” so any app I wanna use is unavailable now — and it doesn’t look like anything’s actually downloading either.
So now I’m cancelling and restarting each individual update manually, as I should have done from the start, I guess. There are only 38 🤷♂️
I really like AirPods, but their audio latency is pretty disappointing. I wrote up some tests here: https://t.co/BIgomcD1jM
Story in the guardian about using machine learning to process bat communications — shit, but that might actually work
During those final 23 minutes, when the missiles are in the air, Twitter will be insufferable.
Props to the Buffy comic for doing an internment camp storyline, even if that’s the last thing I want to read right now.
Je ne sais pas en quoi sont faits les sièges des Régiolis mais l’année prochaine je fais le trajet à pied 💀🔫
I just bought Battlefront on PC because it’s 10€ and I wanna play STAR WAAAARS at/near Ultra, but I’m gonna hate myself if the X-Wing VR mission never comes out.
All the good ones are leaving us on 2016 because they don’t want to see the mess 2017 is going to be.
Ok we’re making an app for men to use to find sex and love
The icon should be a murder mask.
Hm but it’s really more about-
What the… is it specifically 10.12.2 that changed the sorting of icon-view-with-label-on-right Finder windows from vertical to horizontal?
Surely I’d have noticed if the change had been in 10.12.0? I’m looking at my folders, feeling like I’m going crazy.
Really enjoyed @evomagazine’s Car of the Year 2016. Just wish it was a bit longer/more in-depth. Stunning video! https://t.co/SOVvdplx8C
Finally playing Dirt Rally with a wheel, and I still feel like I’m all over the place but now that means arriving third rather than last.
I’ve been in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst for about an hour and I’m about to break my controller over a horribly fussy instafail mission/tutorial.
I don’t remember reading in the reviews of Catalyst that the main missions were in fact much worse than the first Mirror’s Edge.
I never liked Clarkson but found the show entertaining. Homophobia isn’t entertaining. Not paying £80 a year for a blasé attitude to bigotry https://t.co/wfXkOn2d19
Just saw a real-life 18-wheeler get stuck on a railing and start over so I feel better about all my American Truck Simulator screwups.
But that only works when the country’s not big enough to put pressure on Google.
Travelers sur Netflix n’est pas mal du tout, dans la catégorie série de SF canadienne un peu bateau mais aux développements intelligents.
J’ai croisé hier une femme dans la rue avec un masque protégeant son nez et sa bouche, et après cette journée de fièvre terminale je me dis…
En reprenant Incorporated après Travelers je me dis que j’ai dû un peu surnoter les épisodes par manque de SF un peu ambitieuse à la télé.
Pokemon Go profit in one quarter for Nintendo = $115m.
Profit for Nintendo during 12 months of FY2016 = $150m (Before Pokemon Go)
I wonder what the opportunity cost of redesigning everything from scratch for iOS 7 was? (You know, asides stability and staff retention 😜)
Apple’s movie trailer page is a real “Wall of posters in a Seinfeld episode where they go to the movies” right now. https://t.co/TFX5WHxKkq
Today we are talking about Irena Sendler, the social worker who smuggled thousands of Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto during WWII go!
She trained a dog to sit in the front seat of her ambulance with her and bark to drown out the children’s cries. 12/10, would pet.
I leave you with Irena Sendler’s own words, which seem appropriate as we close out 2016 & look ahead with as much hope as we can muster: https://t.co/qKt8uWDX1L
Un chalet dans la montagne, un dogue allemand et un fusil. (Pour me défendre contre les miliciens, pas pour chasser.)
Normalement je dirais “et un accès internet par satellite” mais quelles sont les chances qu’un “vrai” internet survive, en fait ?
You know you’re a stationery nerd when the only thing you remember from your semi-nightmare is using a specific permanent marker.
Tout le mal qu’ils se donnent pour produire 11.22.63, et James Franco absolument insupportable avec son cabotinage léthargique.
So many homophobes turn out to be secretly gay that I’m nervous I’m secretly a giant spider
