15-inch Retina Modbook Pro

As much as I drool over the concept, the design is revolting.

As someone who enjoys Hearthstone for the play-by-play tactics rather than the deck-building strategy, I’m not thrilled with wing 2 of the Naxxramas expansion, which just came out. I’m fine with the first boss punishing my hunter deck and forcing me to diversify a bit — but the last boss is basically a full-on deck-building puzzle, even in normal difficulty, and that’s much less interesting to me. I’m not just frustrated, but also worried about what it means for the upcoming wings… which I’ve all bought in advance. I figured Blizzard earned some money since I like the game so much, but I’m afraid it would have been much better spent on card packs.

I had re-subscribed to the Giant Bombcast 2 / 3 weeks ago, surprised that, oh! they were talking about games!

But of course it was a fluke.

Well, fuck, The Leftovers is grim.

Good grief, I have 150 hours’ worth of unplayed This American Life episodes in my iTunes. And ten more in Downcast.

Tous les gens qui ont payé le Kickstarter de Star Commander, ils ont vu le film Wing Commander réalisé par Chris Roberts ?

If all the story missions follow the “cannon fodder + bullet-sponge boss” blueprint, Destiny’s beta may have just turned me off the game.

You’d think Bungie would be smart enough to avoid the MMO trap of presenting you as savior. The Guardian mythos scales for co-op — not millions of concurrent players sharing a world.

The narrative was that Bungie was tired of making Halo games, but that rings pretty hollow when you look at Destiny, right?

Don’t throw the phone into the river don’t throw the phone into the river I wonder how far I could no no no don’t throw the phone into…

Wish I’d known before leaving home that the Destiny beta is now open to all. I should be able to remotely trigger the PSN download, right?

Le chat qui miaule pendant une demi-heure pour que je sorte de la pièce où est sa litière, mais me suit aux chiottes.

Il aura juste fallu neuf jours mais le chat n’a plus peur que je lui marche dessus à chaque fois que je fais le moindre mouvement.

Bon, je veux déménager dans une ville moins froide en hiver, moins chaude en été, et moins polluée.

I missed being able to leave the dishes in the sink for a couple of days.

RT @dresdencodak: The premise of Lucy would bother me so much less if the trailer just said “Look out, Scarlet Johansson drank WIZARD BLOOD!”

Si les chats avaient un concept du chanter-faux, je prendrais très mal sa réaction de panique.

I had always resisted it but I must admit I don’t hate having another location to move to (and possibly even work) during the day.

C’est tristoune et monotone, l’aménagement de Paris Plages cette année, non ?

RT @olebegemann: The glowing Apple was fun while Macs were a small minority. Now that (almost) everybody has a Mac, itʼs way to obtrusive for my taste.

RT @louije: The Lego factory at the bottom of the sea (via @lucilesc) [bbc.com]

I reached (what looked like) the halfway point of Infamous: Second Son two/three weeks ago and I feel zero inclination to pick it up again.

20 juillet

I know I could read up about the game again (I already did when it was first announced) but I just shouldn’t need to — not to that extent.

Not sure if I interrupted the tutorial too many times (because I was at home) or it’s meant that way, but I’m completely lost in Ingress.

Le chat qui passe sa journée à dormir sur le canapé ET t’engueule quand tu ne viens pas te coucher à l’heure réglementaire.

L’autre inconvénient d’avoir des terrasses de bars sous ses fenêtres, c’est qu’on culpabilise à mort de ne rien faire de son samedi soir.

I can never, ever remember what the keyboard shortcut is for special characters in Mavericks.

Just got an idea for an IRL / AR Watch Dogs-like multiplayer hacking game, and for once it may even be something I could realize by myself.

When you start petting a cat and it moves just one foot out of your reach and looks at you like, “Well? Whatcha waiting for?”

A chaque fois que j’ouvre l’appli Météo (et je passe mon temps à l’ouvrir, because reasons) le programme du week-end change.

Knowing Overcast exists makes it painful to listen to podcasts without silence reduction and dynamic compression. But I listen on my Mac.

Je voudrais pas critiquer parce qu’au moins c’est pas du 100% pavé, mais ça ressemble un peu à rien, le nouveau jardin des Halles ?

Un Segway garé devant un restaurant. Réflexe immédiat, don’t stare at the handicapped!

“What to expect from Syfy’s 12 Monkeys series”

Shit. Shit is what to expect. That’s all you really need to know.

The Strain’s pilot is so full of stupid I can’t imagine they’ll have enough left for the Pacific Rim sequel. How ever will they manage?
