So Steven Den Beste’s Chizumatic is still down. His site went down when he moved to Seattle a couple of weeks ago (Just in time to lose the superbowl to the Steelers, too bad!) and hasn’t re-appeared since. Geeze Steven, whats the holdup? Need an extention cord? Help unpacking boxes? Maybe go over to your new neighbor and borrow a cup of DSL?
Chizu was one of my never-miss-it stops for the day. I need to seriously start thinking about finding a new anime blog. This is a bit tricky. A lot of anime fans aim for the more boobies-and-robots end of the spectrum, and I tend to enjoy the more thoughtful and slower-paced stuff.
Barring that, I should at least learn to stop clicking on my Chizumatic bookmark every morning. Sheesh.
There are two major schools of thought about how you should write software. Here's what they are and why people argue about it.
The Disappointment Engine
No Man's Sky is a game seemingly engineered to create a cycle of anticipation and disappointment.
Gamers Aren’t Toxic
This is a horrible narrative that undermines the hobby through crass stereotypes. The hobby is vast, gamers come from all walks of life, and you shouldn't judge ANY group by its worst members.
MMO Population Problems
Computers keep getting more powerful. So why do the population caps for massively multiplayer games stay about the same?
Final Fantasy X
A game about the ghost of an underwater football player who travels through time to save the world from a tick that controls kaiju satan. Really.
