Happy Halloween 🎃

2 novembre

@Campster:

This year is actually full of “it’s-been-a-decade.” Assassins’s Creed. Rock Band. Mass Effect. Bioshock. Portal. The Witcher. Crysis. TF2.

@Campster:

I guess what I’m saying is 2007 was a heck of a year for new releases and I don’t know if we’ve seen anything like it since.

Trump’s twitter account vanishing and then reappearing moments later is the best evidence yet that the events of the past 2 years are the result of warring sects of time travellers

@BRKeogh:

Embedding people’s tweets in a news story without asking their permission first is wrong and unethical even if the tweets are public and I wish sites would stop doing it

@BRKeogh:

It’s like a voxpop if a voxpop was just filming people’s private conversations on the street and putting them on the news along with the person’s phone number.

It’s incredible how Ubisoft can expend so much talent building a world for a game so unbelievably average in just about every other regard

In retrospect it’s rather obvious since each pixel must be modulated individually instead of making a single backlight blink independently.

If the display controller can already address pixels at 240Hz for PWM, shouldn’t it have been trivial to implement ProMotion 120Hz?

@TomCormackk:

This looks like a mad sesh till you find out it’s a combine harvester in a cotton field

The X is… fine 🤷🏻‍♂️ Too fat, too much bezel, screen doesn’t look that extraordinary to me. But, yes, the notch is okay in person.

If I were still interested in 4.7” iPhones I’d be tempted—mostly for Face ID—but not at this price. And thankfully I’m too used to 5.5” now.

It’s really X as in UX. Face ID + much welcome reboot of interactions that piled up awkwardly over ten years = temptation rising 😬

I’d say Lone Echo is twice as long as its limited gameplay warrants, but what a great, polished VR experience. Not the slightest motion sickness, and the realism of those hand animations does so much for immersion.

As a side note — as great as your game is, as proud as you can be of your work, do NOT trap me in a VR headset with a long, unskippable (unless you quit) credit sequence.

@starscryy:

@mikeBithell:

I always feel like it’s a good idea, as an indie, to swim towards X when AAA declares X dead or stupid business-wise.

- if they’re mostly right, that’s ok, I need far fewer customers.

- if they’re mostly wrong, that’s very ok, I’ll do well til they realise.

@benhumphreys:

Small reminder that any story about Japan that says “wacky/weird thing X is a huge thing in Japan!” means that thing exists in one place, and nobody in Japan has heard of it.

@laura_hudson:

Never forget that Louis CK spent YEARS saying—to the world and his victims who were listening—that nothing happened and he didn’t care

@praxicalmagic:

Two months ago, Louis CK had said his accusers were spreading “rumors.” His fans continued to revere him. Under pressure, he has now confessed and awaits patiently his redemption. There is a script, and men know it by heart.

It hadn’t occurred to me but I’m suddenly wondering if 280-character tweets are implemented server-side as threads of two tweets.

@amlookingbill:

Nice discussion of the improved Street View image blending work the team’s done. Jaggies-be-gone. [research.googleblog.com]

Tweetbot’s Reply button should be a different glyph whether the person follows you back (you’re conversing with someone you ‘know’) or not (you’re commenting on a stranger’s post).

It might have been a better idea not to include the single-player “story mode” in For Honor’s free weekend 💤

@basche42:

Netflix should experiment with bringing back staggered episode releases of marquee shows but instead of once a week do it every night

Coco VR is… pretty

Interactions are limited and pretty rough, but it’s a nice taste of what’s to come when the VR audience is really large enough to be worth the investment.

I tried the new “fixed human scale” mode again and, as much as I love Google Earth VR, it still doesn’t do it for me — at all. I don’t know if I need more pixels or I’ve just never dreamed of being Superman. As opposed to holding New York in the palm of my hand 😀

Je continue de préférer You’re the Worst, mais j’avoue que cette saison de Crazy Ex-Girlfriend mérite un peu des éloges qu’elle a reçus pour son traitement de la maladie mentale.

Among my top 10 games of all time, Mass Effect is still the one that was most tailor-made for me. Ambitious sci-fi world-building, interesting characters, accessible combat, that ‘70s/‘80s aesthetic. I still sometimes have chills listening to M4 (Part II).

Then Mass Effect 2 came and went and—we don’t talk about Mass Effect 3. But that first game’s ambition was so beautiful.

I thought Prey would open up once I got alien powers but… they’re boring? Except mimic matter, which depletes mana way too fast to be fun.

I keep being surprised (and disappointed) by how little Prey really has in common with Dishonored. Not sure if marketing or my brain’s fault — but I remember a strong emphasis on mimic matter, with the implication that you’d do a whole bunch of other wacky things?

I feel like the game would be truer to what it is (not Dishonored in space, not a fun power trip, maybe just not a game for me) if there were no alien powers at all.

Talos scientist: We think Mimics can wait hidden for centuries without noticing the passage of time.

Prey’s UI:

“VR Needs Fewer Jumping Spiders And More Respect For Its Players”

I don’t remember its name, but I played the demo for an escape room game that had a large spider scurry away after you touched a book on a shelf. Fuck. Off.

I fully expected to be disappointed because nothing good can follow “It’s like Dark Souls” but Dead Cells nails the feel of combat.
