To the point, more seriously, I believe in a strong (not absolute) idea of freedom of speech. Back when I was a teenager, I remember deciding to read de Sade, expecting a bit of French hanky-spanky….

Sadly, he appears to have expired on time. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Sleigh) I suppose that doesn't preclude now residing in fairyland, though.

Unable to answer any of a pibbur's searching questions, and shall offer a distraction in the form of something I found interesting today. A fantasy map from 1917 that I think is quite splendid, and…

I think Amazon's and Google's abortive attempts to enter the games business are great examples of the sort of thing that goes on. They simply had no idea what they were doing, and if you read the…

The first time I went to work for a big corporation, I was expecting it to be an impressive and intimidating organisation, full of smart people doing smart things all day. It wasn't. It was well…

Yes, I think this sort of thing is helpful. I'm a fan of the No-Fear Shakespeare editions, where they print a simple translation of each line on each facing page. Some people moan that you kill it…

Yeah, I think it's looking better as it goes along. I see their enthusiasm for retina-rattling contrast, saturation and bloom remain undiminished. I keep hoping to see an update with an art pass that…

Yeah, I've I'd bought it in good faith on Steam, and got an inferior version, I'd have no hesitation in sorting that out.

I wouldn't think legal risks around piracy are the problem. I'd say it's safe to let people add their own legal copies of music to a game. Might even be recordings of their own music.

I'd guess…

Yeah, I do like a real book, and am quite happy with bookshelves everywhere.

I have a full A4 Android ereader, which I use as much as possible for reading articles and textbooks, and so on. I run…

If I were in EA's shoes, I would definitely switch to letting my studios get on with what they're good at. If they'd done that, Bioware would probably still be a top studio, and we'd still have a…

I mentioned the other day that, a few years back, I piled on the pounds. I'd never been overweight before, and, my god, did my body let me know it didn't like it. I had no energy, was foggy headed,…

I'll have to be a dissenter on this one. The theme is not bad, but I think it's a fairly generic bit of fantasy bombast. I thought the Kingmaker theme was better, and the D:OS 2 theme far more…

The Sopranos is another benchmark, IMO. I don't think it was consistently great throughout its run, but again the first couple of seasons I think were exceptional. There was a depth to it that I…

I guess the best case scenario is that the game itself is not in bad shape, but that the relationship between Paradox and the studio broke down. Occasionally you do come across people that are just…

I think the down-side of it is that it becomes an even riskier bet for the backers. When projects were going for realistic funding, you'd at least know they'd have to hit the level of a sensible…
