No worries. I'm not a professional coder, so I might learn something. I've picked up a lot from developer discussions.

And really, this topic is probably more interesting to developer types,…

The English public school system (named "public", but actually meaning "private") has always been a madhouse. I got kicked out of it, and went energetically off the rails, which I don't think I would…

Hope the spring clean and service does the trick. Sometimes it's hard to know exactly what the problem was, but in some cases that will sort things out.

I like to use cases that are designed for…

That's all fine. I used to buy full price games all the time. But then, you buggers in the gaming industry trained me out of that, by regularly releasing major games in pitiful condition, splitting…

Lol. I found a dead mouse in PC once, though it didn't appear to be causing any issues.

Yeah, that could be a definite possibility, I'd say.

When I talk about reseating everything, I'm thinking of doing a complete teardown - everything out of the case, cleaned up and put back…

Yeah, I'd start with a good cleanup, and, if it were me, I'd go a bit further and remove and reseat everything. Something might be making or not making a connection somewhere. Dust and gunk could…

Very nice. I did wonder how that would work in the Martian atmosphere. Must open up some great new opportunities for surveying the surface.

They dumped the scripting language a few years ago, but they've continued to improve the Blueprints system, which is very good. Just from being an amateur that loiters around the gamedev communities,…

It runs in the cloud, and I'm sure there's a huge amount of data processed behind the scenes. To start with it comes with 60 face types, and each one can be customised and morphed to some degree, to…

Metahuman facial animation

Very interesting software from Unreal, for creating and animating human characters. Now in beta, hopefully it will help to make high quality character performances more accessible to more studios.

This game was the answer to my prayers. Each night I would lay in bed, close my eyes tight, and wish that, somehow, they could turn the Elder Scrolls into an MMO with lootbox microtransactions,…

Yeah, I never really bought into the hype. What they originally discussed was wildly ambitious, and there were clear signs of a troubled production and false starts.

If it's a good Deus Ex-style…

That's a shame - I hadn't realised it was so very linear. Yes, doesn't seem very likely they'll be sorting that out.

I was thinking that the main problems were bugs, and some systems, like the…

Got some bokashi buckets (http://blog.dobies.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/bokashi+bins+4167.jpg), to upgrade the recycling system.

It's a system for processing nearly all food waste, in a way…

Here's a site that diplays Reddit, but presents it in a cleaned up and readable form. I'm fairly sure they've made the Reddit site almost unreadable, to push people towards their software client, for…

I think their best move would be to really go all in on making it the game it should have been. These days, it's possible for a bad release to find redemption. Maybe re-release as a director's cut,…

Looks like fun. I quite like the John Wick tone - over the top action that doesn't take itself too seriously, but not painfully cheesy.

I tried it, but decided to wait for patching, and DLC that never came. Then just never got round to it. I should give it a proper play. I was kind of put off in the early days, though not because of…

Yeah, exploration in that sense wasn't that great. Perhaps "discovery" is a better way of putting it. I was always intrigued by the possibility of going to new locations, which is exploration of a…

I'm glad this game is getting a second bite of the cherry. With everything patched up to where it should have been, and optimised for PC, I could see this doing very well.
