people who just strike up friendly convos with strangers for no reason: i am in awe of you. you make me believe in the beauty and goodness of humanity. without you, the world would be a far worse place. also, leave me the hell alone

I knew what the risks were when Keighley was prodding the developer like “It’s not just Bandersnatch, right, it’s more interactive?” but, dammit, there should be nothing wrong with making an interactive movie. You can’t sell it more than $10 anyway, so spare yourself the trouble.

I was screaming bloody murder at the touch controls for the first 20 minutes, but they were used more sparingly afterwards. Still, the game would be just as enjoyable as a simple interactive movie — and those early scenes will dissuade me from replaying to uncover more story.

I bought Erica because the lead actress’s performance was clearly excellent in the trailer, but she is sadly not at all representative of the rest of the cast. The script doesn’t help (think direct-to-DVD teen paranormal thriller), nor does the 60fps video (wtf seriously?).

Erica (PS4) — 6/10

I mean, it’s putting me off the game regardless of whether he made her do it live or added it in post, but one case is definitely worse than the other. (Though I’m not certain which.)

Since last night I keep thinking about the Death Stranding: Mama video, and the likelihood of Kojima asking an animator to make Margaret Qualley grab her breasts after the fact.

Excellent - as ever - cartoon from @barrydeutsch.

Also, what kind of assholes are in charge of demoing the game?

Aujourd’hui j’ai appris l’existence de la plus mignonne des théories du complot: certains conspis pensent que les grands plateaux mesa du désert sont en fait des souches d’arbres géants qui ont été coupés.

(Ça ne dit pas par qui/comment/pourquoi, mais j’adore le concept)

Magic: The Gathering Arena’s onboarding and tutorial are excellent. I don’t know that I have the courage to learn the intricacies of an entire 25-yo CCG but, hey, at least now I understand the basic rules of Magic.

So many clicks on the “Next stage” button, though 😣

@lizardengland:

So tonight in Sea of Thieves, I decided to end my night by picking up a special chest. It’s special because it’s rare, extremely valuable, and when you pick it up everyone can see it on the map and can hunt you down for it.

You know a nice, calm way to finish.

J’ai l’impression d’avoir pris dix kilos et dix ans en quinze jours de canicule. L’année prochaine, tant pis pour l’environnement, je fous un climatiseur dans la cheminée.

Exploring a planet in No Man’s Sky VR feels amazing. On the other hand my framerate tanks as soon as I get into my starship, and the flying controls are awful. Give me automatic fast travel on- and off-planet and I could spend hours upon hours just walking around.

Apple’s push to become a services company is toxic to its incentives.

My biggest disappointment will remain in how many of the Ancient texts (especially in NG+) are eye-gougingly flagrant word-for-word translations from English. They look like they were written by people who have never seen a foreign language in their life.

I’ve just finished my second playthrough of Heaven’s Vault with new reasons to love the world-building, and new reasons to hate the game. I’m almost tempted to have a third go so I can dive deeper into the language, so I’ll hurry and uninstall it instead.

One of my favorite bits in Heaven’s Vault is (minor spoiler) when Aliya and Six end up in an ancient theater but neither of them has any concept of what that is.

Of course they had to screw it up on another moon 😒

13 août

I need some assurance that if I close The Book in Heaven’s Vault the game will not start me over from the beginning. I wish I could trust implicitly that it won’t, but that isn’t the kind of relationship we have.

Un ours et une louve chassant, voyageant et jouant ensemble ont été découverts par le photographe finlandais Lassi Rautiainen, qui les a photographiés pendant plus de 10 jours. Ces scènes se sont déroulées il y a quelques années, dont une montrant les animaux partageant un repas.

Je culpabilise de donner des vues à Another Life / Prémices sur Netflix alors que c’est franchement pas bon, mais il y a genre une scène sympa par épisode et j’ai cette tendance automatique à regarder de la merde quand je suis chez des chats.

To be clear I thoroughly enjoyed all twelve hours I’ve spent in Elsinore, and will recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone with an interest in interactive fiction. I’m not even sure they did anything wrong — I’m just puzzled by my own reaction.

For the past few days I’ve been trying to figure out why obtaining The Book in Elsinore completely took the wind out of my sails. Maybe it lifted the immersion curtain by emphasizing “collect all endings” instead of a personal narrative? I haven’t felt like playing again since 😕

Steam: An item from your wishlist is on sale!

Me: Uh why the fuck did I ever wishlist that game, though?

I’m really surprised Apple let third parties change iPhone batteries for so long

It’s the one component for which they can argue it’s in the consumer’s interest 🧨

@mahalis:

so when your body is hot because it’s hot outside, you’ll feel angrier about things bc your brain is unconsciously following the correlation

@mahalis:

a lot of emotional states cause physical feelings (e.g. anger→heat), and conversely your brain will often interpret the feeling as the state

Apps ask users to place their finger on the Home button to take a heart-beat reading. App dims the display to minimum to hide the content — which is actually dialogue requesting authorization for in-app purchase.

What does it mean about Apple’s design that the major players stopped copying the notch after a year?

@alain_invasion:

Periodic reminder that doublets like “cease and desist”, “true and correct” and “null and void” are just artifacts of a time when people used both Anglo-Saxon and Norman terms to be sure they were understood by everyone. You can axe them in translation.

The Terror S1 — 7/10

Tout ce boulot pour reconstruire le réalisme d’une expédition perdue au pôle nord… pour terminer sur un final pareil, quel gâchis. Et sans parler de l’Evil Gay comme on n’en fait plus depuis vingt ans.
