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

“My form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemblance” — Mary Shelley on the uncanny valley, 1818.

Je suis tombé sur une campagne de Call of Cthulhu enregistrée avec un micro binaural et tous les autres podcasts sont devenus inécoutables.

I feel silly for putting a spoiler warning on something everyone will inevitably know by sundown but it’s about PRINCIPLES, PEOPLE.

The card game form seems like a perfect adaptation of Dota for someone who finds the game’s many incarnations too overwhelming to play.

I’ve just realized out of nowhere how much I miss Driveclub VR. Dirt is awesome but way too intense for me to play for more than twenty minutes at a time… and all the other games are made for hardcore fans who, among other things, don’t care about UX.

I was excited way back when inklings of a partnership between Microsoft and Oculus meant there was a chance the Forza franchise would suddenly sprout stereo vision, but Microsoft’s VR focus now seems to be miles away from the kind of hardware that can run a photorealistic car simulator.

I just can’t imagine putting PSVR back on my head, though.

I hope Miracle Merchant gets a “chill” mode where you never run out of ingredients, because that’s a frustrating way to lose

@heybrucewright:

They aren’t particularly scary, but surprise monsters in Oculus Home to promote a game is a mistake. Home needs to feel safe and inviting.

Zombie and zombie spiders making growling and skittering noises.

I mean the one thing that’d make the game 100x better is a usable manual gearbox, but I’d be a bit sore buying the game again just for that.
