please try to think harder before adding those to-do apps and those ticktacktoe apps to your portfolio, instead, start from a real problem you think you can solve. Or even something done before but you think you can do better. It's not about quantity.

@parasurv Yeah, that would be a good starting point, thanks. Currently replaying to a hundred percent completion Doom 2016, and it's cool how this seemingly linear FPS opens up for more playthroughs and becomes more challenging the more stuff you unlock. I'm kind of looking around for something manageable as a learning project to see if it'd be exciting for me utilizing gaming narrative techniques.

The only game I've made in my life was a 16-bit side-scrolling racer. I don't even know where to start with something like that:

I'd call this the "Nothing goes ever right" sale at GOG, with a tons of post-apocalyptic + civil war sim:

Couple of great games:
* Frostpunk
* Mutant Year Zero
* This War of Mine
* Stalker
* Wasteland 2

and others, all of course.

I was a big fan of Elon Musk but all his talk lately made me respect NASA even more. He is a shorcut guy. He shouldn't be in charge of anything more complicated than a production line.

Started A Fire Upon the Deep without researching what it's about. I am at 12% of the book, and it's pretty (good) weird so far. All I knew was it's a science fiction novel and it's about space, far into the future.

If you have Musk stock, drop it like it's radioactive.The guy is desperate for some government coin which he will get either by getting a loan from the mob, or by caring about anything other than himself and the basic principles of physics.

@codewiz Xbox One. The controller is nicer. Video games are video games.

“Twice he called out:

‘Inspector Maigret! Inspector, sir!’

But Maigret did not turn back.”


New on this instance, and back to mastodon, after about 1,5y on pleroma.

I am a weird techie person, but I love doing other stuff like long walks, hiking, reading, cooking (srsly kitchen is my second favorite home) and watching silly stuff. I am culturally more old school: Queen, Alien, 80-90s music, etc.

I love talking and discussing things, so if do need to talk to some "weird" guy on the internet, I am here. :)

‘Are they trying to shoot down that other drone?’

‘No. They're trying to fly that tank.’

Bill Maher got owned so bad by this straight shooter who in his turn is ready to give the benefit of the doubt to a low level demon puppet.

I play Quake Champions every day. It's getting better. Definitely has the same vibe of high velocity action like some of the other titles in the series. I hope what's left of id Software find some way to bring it even farther.

I just blasted my way through the entire Q3 Arena single-player campaign just for the heck of it. Two, three hours at most, if you know what you're doing. I was too young and too much in Bulgaria to own the licensed physicals copies. But nowadays, I often look at my collection of the Quake series on Steam with the same fondness. QuakeC was a blast to learn and use to change the mechanics of the game-play into something out of Quake's world.
