Once upon a time I made a blog about video games. And this is what's left of it (mostly tweets).

RT @SteamVR: Tilt Brush: Painting from a new perspective

Don’t think I have the patience for Nioh copying every Dark Souls system but changing the buttons for the hell of it.

Minecraft is a terrible application for this (it only works if you know ahead of time what the user will do) but it’s fascinating.

RT @SamuelGibbs: The look on his face is priceless. Windows 10 installs mid-game for ex pro-gamer/streamer [twitter.com] [pic.twitter.com]

I’m watching someone stream Tilt Brush and my lack of VR headset is causing me physical pain.

On se fait une soirée mots croisés ?

Overwatch is definitely fun, but too fast and hectic and oh my god so many heroes and powers to memorize for me.

How come is nVidia pricing the new GPUs so aggressively when they already own most of the PC market? #notcomplainingbut

Dammit, I’m beginning to get into Overwatch. The random heroes mode is a godsend — gets rid of poorly balanced teams, and choice paralysis.

The one thing at which I find Overwatch really bad is communicating that you’re being hit.

Something about the lighting in Naughty Dog’s engine uncanny valleys the shit out of Uncharted 4 (and The Last of Us) for me.

RT @kylebrussell: Whoa — GTA V modded with HTV Vive support [u.pomf.is]

Ratchet & Clank is beautiful and enjoyable but I have zero urge to keep playing beyond “it’s still running from when I turned the PS4 off.”

Well, that and I can’t quite muster enough masochism to put the Bloodborne disc back in, even though I want to.

Couldn’t Microsoft keep a few legacy servers online? It’s not like they run their own scalable cloud service. It’s nice that they’re giving (unspecified) store credit to customers, but that doesn’t compensate for those who sunk their time and creativity into it.
Games-as-a-service sucks ass.

RT @paul_haine: I’m so angry these mock ‘90s Lucasarts games by Andrew Scaife don’t exist [pic.twitter.com]

RT @eurogamer: Digital Foundry reviews the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. It’s fast. It’s monstrously fast. [eurogamer.net] [pic.twitter.com]

RT @metasynthie: Are you fucking kidding me, Apple?

Play a girl in Gaza: rejected

Play an Israeli missle: A-OK!

RT @kylebrussell: Can’t believe how quickly this VR mod for Grand Theft Auto V is improving [youtube.com]

I bought Hero Emblems for iOS as a simple, mindless game to play while listening to podcasts, and it’s the opposite of that but I’m hooked.
