Link of the Day: Could This Be the Greatest Video Game Ever? No.

Monday, June 30, 2014 6:00 pm

Rock Simulator 2014

Probably never get past the parody stage, but it’s fun to talk about. My favorite comment from the forum discussion:

I know this is still a development build, but I’m rather concerned about the obvious lack of rocks of color in your game. Far too often games will only represent one, usually granite, and if there is more than one, they’re stereotyped in the worst ways (Igneous is found in other places than just volcanoes, devs!). I’m not asking you or any of your expansive team to end rockism. All I ask is that rocks of all types have a chance at equal representation in video games. I don’t think that’s too much to ask, but here we are.

Link of the Day: That Light is NOT an Oncoming Train!

Sometimes what you REALLY need in a bleak, dark landscape is to hear a sane human voice say “it’s not hopeless”.

This… is that.

Link of the Day: Hope HealthCare.Gov’s Patch Notes Have This Much Entertainment Value

Friday, June 27, 2014 6:00 pm

[High Praise! to Technabob]

Goat Simulator – which is quite probably the worst video game in the world and I remind you that you should NOT spend your money on it – has upgraded (if a steaming pile of fetid refuse can be said to be “upgraded”) to version 1.1

The release notes… are pretty much the opposite of the game, i.e. kinda awesome.

Give ‘em a read, and you will be entertained:

Link of the Day: There’s a Name for People Who Wear Google Glass

Thursday, June 26, 2014 6:00 pm

[High Praise! to Dr. Omed's Tent Show Revival]

The Internet of Faces

Not sure if I need a language warning on this, since the term for Glass-wearer only rhymes with a bad word. But it’s used repeatedly in the piece, and the term won’t be going away anytime soon, so it’s best to be an early adopter and decide now if you think it’s offensive and needs censoring.

And, having actually MET a Glass-wearer, I can’t honestly say the term isn’t appropriate. Smug-wise, they make iPeople look like Mother Teresa.

Tangential thought: hard to believe all those “super-smart” people at Google didn’t see this particular bit of derogatoria coming and pick a different name for their toy.

PixelTrek

Get a never seen impression of the fabulous U.S.S. Enterprise-D™. But not in that way how you know the ship from the tv show.

In a pixelated and isometric universe you can move freely through the ship and explore areas and angles that were not shown on the tv show. For example the restroom next to the bridge, the many corridors and the countless labs and quarters on the U.S.S. Enterprise-D™.
