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

@joewintergreen:

Every hacking minigame needs to be you just type away randomly and increasingly frantically while cool dumb hacker shite happens onscreen. Wider range of keypresses = faster hack.

Upscale textures directly in Unity Editor with ESRGAN and Unity Inference Engine aka Barracuda. Works locally on your GPU: Intel, AMD or Nvidia.

Get it at: [bit.ly] Import into Unity 2018.3 project & right click on the texture! #unity3d #barracuda

@Rovient:

Fortnite’s long term unsustainable Dev cycle has basically fucked every developer of a new game-as-service that comes to market. Games labelled as “dead” if they don’t update with new content every week. It’s fairly tragic actually.

@doctorforman:

Hark! #Astrologaster, that play which does recount my life, has lately opened upon the world stage. It is now being played at playhouses “The Eye Pad”, “The Eye of the Faun” and “The Steam”:

I made an ARKit face filter that will let me sing @skrillex dubstep drops. Here’s my attempt at the growl sounds from Promises - Skrillex & Nero Remix. Updoot if you’d use this 😂😂 #arkit #screenshotsaturday

@Wu_Shengzhi:

Draw a sticky note on an iPad and then pull it out into the AR world. I added little spring force and try to make the transition feel like pulling a physical note out of a book. Tested on a 6-year-old boy, he can definitely get it. :D

@Noddus_:

La map créée par @BlockWorksYT pour célébrer les dix ans de Minecraft est vraiment, vraiment cool.

C’est un gigantesque musée interactif qui revient sur toute l’histoire et le contenu du jeu.

Une sorte de Disneyland de Minecraft, dans Minecraft.

Also, I betrayed my age by assuming the problem would be penises rather than swastikas.

@loganbonner:

It’s kind of a ripoff that so many RPG adventures have you meet half-dragons or half-fey or whatever instead of meeting their parents, who are clearly fun weirdos.

@MatPiscatella:

Media accused all the time of being paid for reviews, while those that are clearly getting paid to promote a game are applauded and supported with tips and subs. It’s the upside down. [twitter.com]

@eddietree:

so what we did was: we booted up the Quest, walked around the studio, went out the door, down the stairs and outside into the park, looped around some trees, then back up the stairs into the studio where we started, and my god the tracking did not slide. it felt like magic

“Smaller bomb colliders. Bombs also turn off when they are behind you.” Oh thank fuck, I’ve always felt that the original design was completely wrong on both counts. #BeatSaber

Look, I’m not a great fan of how the Epic Games Store has decided to make a place for itself, but… I mean, I’ll actually be costing them money, so.

23 May

So… Beat Saber’s numbers go to 115 now? 🤨

I’ve finally moved house and it’s funny how much more you can get into Beat Saber when you’re not afraid of bumping into furniture.

Observation (PC) — DNF

Looks like an interesting science-fiction experience (though I’d love for the science part to be a lot more rigorous) but as a game it’s incredibly frustrating and unfun. Most of all, I just can’t take this game seriously having played Lone Echo.

I guess I’ll youtube the cutscenes someday.

I’m super into the idea of my pokémon guarding the nearby gym but I keep thinking about the fact that all it does is earn silly virtual coins and it would be a much more efficient use of my time to do literally anything else and just buy coins. Damn freemium games.

I refuse to engage with a freemium game’s economy because it’s designed to make people who already paid want to pay more. There’ll always be more consumables to buy and more item types to crowd my inventory if I expand it.

@TheDarkId:

Behold the best dialogue tree of 2019.

@TheDarkId:

I’d like a game where you have a character that has their own dialogue you can only alter by word emphasis or sarcasm of how you state what they intend and people act accordingly.

@UploadVR:

Check out our extended hands-on preview of the Valve Index!

@Google:

It’s AR of the tiger!

If you’ve got an AR-enabled phone, you can now bring select animals right into your space for a safari (or safe snuggle) with Search.

I sure hope it’s more controllable with the keyboard than the tutorial lets on, though.

A friend got me into checking pokémons’ precise stats in a third-party app, so now I’m properly excited when I catch a pokémon whose appraisal is so unambiguously terrible that I can delete it without checking. Why is Niantic hiding those damn stats away?
