8-character passwords can now be brute-forced by computers that can try all 6 quadrillion permutations in 2 and a half hours, but really, any good password system should lock the user out after the first quadrillion guesses. By the second quadrillion, it's probably safe to assume that it's not a legitimate login attempt.

Something about the motion in this Away: Journey to the Unexpected game feels a little nauseating to me, which is surprising because I've never felt motion-sick from a game. It's like everything has some weird fish-eye distortion on it or something. It reminds me of being drunk, like the perspective is lagging behind the movement of the virtual head. Ugh.

Here is a good video explaining why the GDR/DDR had less money than the FDG

this is the ideal app review. you may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.

This bundle is rad. Fortune 499 is delightful and I've been meaning to get Minit. Those two + 4 other games for $10

Oh, the extra challenge is literally just the one boss that almost killed me :/ The lore book made it sound like there was a lot more stuff after that, but it turns out that all the entries I hadn't found were just potential effects of the scroll with a random effect: use the chance scroll with X in your inventory and there's a chance it'll turn into Y. Stuff no one will ever see because it's a die roll on top of a die roll. Ah well, still a good game.

When I was a kid, I had this book about Apple 2 programming for kids, with this section about games the authors enjoyed. One of them was for a game I didn't have and never heard of called "The Bilestoad". I was skeptical. I knew the limitations of the computer, and a full-on two-player fighting game with limb targeting seemed like a game that couldn't possibly exist on the Apple 2.

And... it doesn't. What DOES exist is this incredible, inscrutable psychedelic screen vomit

My favorite video game power fantasy is having technology that allows you to vocally communicate with multiple people over long distances with nearly no latency, no drop-outs or interference or distortion, and be able to understand each other perfectly

We had this technology once. It was called "the telephone". Too bad no one will ever know what that's like going forward

I was hoping someone would ask me "why would the woodpecker need to type the word woodpecker" so I could reply "so it could log in to its computer"
