Politicians realize they’re fighting a battle they’re (eventually) not going to be able to win with regards to marijuana. It’s going to happen eventually, just a matter of when.
So they’re going to “tactically withdraw” from the cannabis fight by decriminalizing it, just in time to free up all that space in private… Read more
The TurboExpress was brilliant though. It played the same “chip card” games that the full-blown console did, so you could pull the game out of your console, and slide it right into the handheld. It was 16-bit, and had a backlit color screen a full 8 years before the GameBoy Color launched. It even had an over-the-air… Read more
Came here to say exactly this. I want to spend an awful lot of time just “being” in all of these images.
Back in May 2019 I did a full rebuild on my entire PC setup. I went all-in on three 32" Pixio PX329, 165Hz, 2460x1440 FreeSync panels, with 2x DisplayPort and 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, and I couldn’t be happier. The ones I have are the flat panels, which don’t appear to be available anymore. At least, not on Amazon where I… Read more

Wasn’t it great? I can’t exactly say what it was about the game that manages to elicit that feeling, nor how the Devs managed to put that lightning into the bottle, but I sure wish more games delivered the same joyful satisfaction as I got from my first playthrough of Terra Nil as well.
I don’t sit down to play Dorfromantik often, but whenever I do, I always enjoy it. There’s something serene and stress-free about it, and just plain charming. The aesthetic is lovely.
The Terra Nil demo feels much the same way. Whenever I come away from a session of that game, I feel like I’ve completed a little piece… Read more
Man, the portable monitor arena is a minefield. I’m still getting things setup to be a digital nomad myself, and my workload pretty much demands at least one additional monitor, as I’m making full use of three monitors while at home, plus the laptop screen.
I’d love to see some kind of round-up review of portables… Read more

The irony that completely boggles me is that that particular strain of Christians also believe that Revelations explains that the Antichrist is a great (as in “YUGE”) conman, that rises to power on the world stage, built upon a foundation of lies. Which definitely sounds familiar....
And they’re all running around with… Read more
Different strokes for different folks. I’ve got a hardshell covering my longbed, with a raised, modular sleeping platform in there. It’s great for cross-country roadtrips, and just pulling to a rest stop and crawling into the back to take a nap.
Stashed underneath the sleeping platform, amongst various other camping… Read more
Not being a parent myself, I have a lack of insight here beyond training household pets. So forgive me if I get the wrong idea here, but wouldn’t this be giving them the wrong idea?
“Here, chew on this thing that looks just like the thing I don’t want you to chew on, and make sure you don’t get confused.”
Or is this… Read more
I’m all for accessibility options, in whatever form they may take: remapping inputs, lowering enemy health, increasing the player’s damage, lower general difficulty, color-blind display alterations, and plenty more besides.
But there is one area that I’m legitimately stumped when it comes to “how to make VR games more… Read more
At a young age, I remember hearing a commercial on TV about “Alien, featuring Sigourney Weaver.” The name was so strange to my young ears at the time, and I was at least aware of some spiders having “weaver” in their name, so I was pretty convinced that was the name of the Alien.
I remember thinking it was really weird… Read more

“It’s a Disney movie, it can’t be too scary” said 6 year old me.
Bonus trauma: Nintendo Power magazine, Issue 2 Cover
For some reason, this one really effed me up for awhile as a kid. Definitely wasn’t expecting to end with nightmares over a freshly launched Nintendo gaming magazine
I realize I’m letting my cynical side show here, but I feel like Blizzivision is partly making these minute changes and spreading word about them in order to flood/fatigue the news cycle, and thus make people tired of reading about them. Never trust the intentions of marketing/PR spin to be motivated by anything other… Read more
At first glance (and after reading about the Culver’s Curdburger) the image looked like a mason jar full of nacho cheese, and I wasn’t sure whether to be terrified or excited. So I decided on both.
And, to be clear, I don’t even necessarily think that the half hour credit scroll of 1000s of names is necessary, either. There does need to be some form of “officially credited” means to show that someone worked on a game, and in what capacity. The current method of slowly scrolling names with no means of searching… Read more
I meant that it’s a different discussion in the sense that:
“Fixing the screwed up way that hiring is done in games”
is separate from this particular discussion of:
“Should people that work on a game be credited?”
This article, and this discussion is about the latter. The former is absolutely a problem, and is absolutely… Read more
