Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

I never got into Papers, Please but really enjoy both the writing and gameplay of Beholder. It’s a shame the save system is user-hostile.

I wanna give Lego Worlds’ creative mode a shot but I can’t make any sense of the UI

Difference between an iPhone and an actual real life proper movie camera. Never seen such a direct comparison before https://t.co/7E4Dt8db6k


Literally the most beautiful space images/footage ever captured. Everyone needs to see this, gain some humility.

1) Okay guys we need to talk about this Pittsburgh and Paris stuff. People are confused. It’s about gender. (Thread below) https://t.co/AmR7yzl5V4

Bloodborne is literally the only game that makes me persevere for days trying to open the very door in front of which I keep respawning.

Of course that also means I have an irrepressible urge to tweet that HEY EVERYONE I OPENED A DOOR TONIGHT.

If watchOS 4 still requires two presses of different strengths to figure out temperature and condition I’m switching to Android.

Alors c’est mignon, la peluche géante Maine coon, mais je trouve pas le bouton pour désactiver l’alarme et elle est réglée sur 7:30 😾


Love the way colourising old black and white photos brings the past into the present. This video has great examples https://t.co/RCgJ2fePr1

I can’t find anywhere in Mail or System Prefs that would allow me to re-enter my password, so I guess I’ll just remove the accounts, huh?

(Those are GMail accounts; for my regular IMAP accounts I can find where to change the password.)


Truly excellent from @JohnHMcWhorter on why English is so weird, and how it got that way:


The Darkroom app is so good that it’s making me much more frustrated than before with the limitations of my old iPhone 6′s camera.

I should work but I’m spending the weekend with a gorgeous 55” TV so how could I not play Bloodborne, sitting cross-legged a few feet away.

5 June

Level 51 is as good a time as any to find out that Bloodborne takes blood vials from your storage when you respawn.

Il dort bien profondément, le connard qui m’a réveillé à 05:30, 07:30 et 10:00. Qu’est-ce que je lui fais ? 😼

The vertical carousel style for watchOS probably works well to optimize information density, but wtf is up with those gradient backgrounds.

Maybe have the keynote last half an hour longer instead of making everyone rush through everything? No?


apple is clearly listening to the people moaning about performance, and it’s meeting them in the middle, sorta.

I wanted to post a 🤦🏻‍♂️ every time it was warranted (i.e. every 30 seconds) but “Duplicate status.”

Ooh I wanna know what privacy compromises Apple made to finally have iMessage conversations sync properly between devices.


iMac Pro looks awesome. But it is NOT the new Mac Pro. New Mac Pros are still in the works for next year.

Converting live photos to long exposures 👍


Of course, AppStore in iOS 11 will have stories. #wwdc2017 [pic.twitter.com]


Turns out the past of computing had a lot of good ideas.

Damn, iOS 11 on iPad Pro looks fantastic but I still want to enjoy it on an 8-inch iPad with Pencil and I’m never gonna get that 😢


Apple is making the perhaps very smart assumption that stellar audio and subpar AI trumps subpar audio and semi-OK AI.

6 June


Best part about iOS 11 screenshot behavior (tiny window + Markup) - is you can say “Done” then discard after sharing. No need to save!


I haven’t opened one of my iOS projects in (only!) a year, and this is what I’m greeted with. Thanks, Swift. https://t.co/ISD4m31qlw


I asked ARKit for the height of my table. It was off by 3cm. 3.8% error. From a lousy video camera. This thing is great.

7 June

I’m catching up on House of Cards and it’s weird to think during season 3 you were supposed to root for the “unconventional” president.


On the iOS 11 home screen:

Short tap = open

Medium tap = popover menu

Medium hold = begin drag

Long hold = enter rearrange mode


Voilà. on pourra vous enfermer sans jugement, sans enquête,juste parce que qqun a soupçonné que vous étiez dangereux



Land: Okay, there’s like 4 basic shapes and everything is pretty much that.

I keep forgetting to try and play with that thing.

Except I hate flowcharts and mind-maps and my system’s structure is much more inspired by Inkle’s format.


Apple Music’s Planet of the Apps’ first company pitch was an app that ARKit sherlock’d the day before.

Good representation of app world.


This bot is more significant than it appears. Reestablishes democratic norm that anything POTUS says is history.

Only just realized that omg I can finally enable iMessage on my Mac, too, without losing messages — and that means no more FB Messenger \o/


It would be pretty cool if it assigned you with a random other player. Actual prisoner dilemma stuff.

Watching a PUBG stream and damn I wish I had FPS friends to team up with. (I’ll probably end up playing it solo but it’s just not the same.)

11 June

Oh, of course killing the boss in Old Yharnam opened a door in Cathedral Ward. God I hate how willfully obtuse Bloodborne is.

I’m addicted to the NYT crossword and there’s 20 years’ worth of archives in the app so I should be productive again around 2022.

Ma chambre est tellement poussiéreuse en plein soleil… clairement la seule solution est de fermer les volets jusqu’à septembre.

Forza’s drab tracks haven’t been a good showcase of a new console’s visuals for two generations.

That was basically a cutscene but I can’t wait to see what the new Metro looks like on my PC.


Have to admit: I was hoping a year off would give us something less recognizably Assassin’s Creed.


Kudos on the setting change but so far this looks like the same tired-ass game I’ve played a dozen times.

12 June

Second tour : culte de la personnalité Macron vs. culte de la personnalité Mélenchon, je ne suis pas sûr d’avoir une préférence.


In Destiny, see, you’re a Guardian with a jet bike! In Anthem, you’re a FREELANCER with a jetpack. You see, right? https://t.co/KOqOSUGwuC


Anthem is the promise of Destiny. The question will be can a shooter company make a better RPG or can an RPG company make a better shooter?

Why is Bioware making EA’s Destiny competitor and who is gonna make proper Bioware RPGs now? 😰

TIL that you can play Black Desert Online on PC with a gamepad. I should give it a… oh, it’s not F2P in Europe? Never mind then.


That might have been a bit presumptuous. I hope it’s EA’s Destiny, and not EA’s The Division.

I am irrationally angry at the obnoxious absence of labels on the Apple Store’s tables.

How expensive is an E3 conference that no one was able to tell the sponsor he should maybe cut a few minutes from his speech?

What is up with Ubisoft’s developers having human-like feelings? It’s weird.

There are many opportunities for The Crew 2 to be terrible (starting with their track record) but I’m intrigued.

And it looks gorgeous.

I’ll never understand why people are so fascinated with pirates. Boats are boring?

Skull and Bones has a crazy level of visual polish for a game that’s basically the same thing as Windward.




That’s the best Ubisoft press conference in quite some time. Very human.

13 June

I hope the Shadow of the Colossus remake plays better than The Last Guardian.


Spider-Man looks spectacular, but I hope it’s less linear than this demo suggests.

J’ai descendu la saison 1 de Twin Peaks d’une traite, mais après une heure de la seconde je crois que je vais plutôt lire un résumé 😴

With this heat there’s no way I’m turning on the PC — never mind a VR headset — so I guess I’ll focus on interactive fiction for the summer.

American Gods vaut le coup rien que pour le prologue de chaque épisode 😲😢

(Mais le reste aussi. Particulièrement cette semaine.)

Providing support for an app that sold for all of three months until it saturated its very niche market is the worst.

At least no one’s contacting me about bugs in Uniconsole because no one’s using it anymore.

The insane bus tunnel thing is dead because of course it is. [qz.com]


It got proposed, built, and shut down in the time it’s taken Hyperloop to build a test tunnel in a desert.

I wish Steam’s discovery queue had an “Already Owned” button. Clicking “Not Interested” on a game I own and like feels very wrong.

Why did I buy Dark Souls III when I’m still only halfway through the love-hate relationship that is my first Bloodborne playthrough 😩 #whycantigiveup

Crash Time III is kind of terrible but the driving physics are surprisingly decent

Stories Untold’s free first chapter didn’t prepare me for how clever that game is. The meta-ness isn’t just for show.

I rarely replay games for achievements, but going through chapters 1 and 2 again made me appreciate how neatly it all ties together.

Thank heaven — or the game’s designers, as it’s probably intentional — I didn’t need to replay chapter 3.

The Dream Machine (PC) — 8/10

The Dream Machine is at the top of my “Thank you, Steam sale!” list. Visuals, writing, puzzle design, a masterpiece from beginning to end.

A complex review simmers in your mind. As you try to reduce it to a few tweets, it turns to mush and you end up with nothing but a 👍 or 👎

Futurama: World of Tomorrow’s short cartoon opener gave me a sad that can only be cured by deleting that “game” and rewatching seasons 1–3.

Wait no that’s a terrible plan I’ll be even sadder afterwards.
