Observation

Observation is a short story focused indie game where you play as the AI on board a space station where something has gone very wrong. All of your interactions with what's left of the crew and the station itself take place at first through fixed cameras inside the station then later little drone cameras you can maneuver about.

New Toy

I think this is the second most expensive thing I've ever bought, the first being my flat.

So my golf was getting on a little bit still running fine but starting to need more than rudimentary swap all the fluids wipe it with a wet towel and call it good maintenance so I figured time to investigate replacing it. Since I was thinking of getting something newer and better I thought well why not try out some EV's and so I drove a few the Chevy bolt the Nissan and so on. I also tried the Tesla Model 3 which is a very fun car.

Anthem: Just dull

So Anthem came out to people that didn't subscribe to EA's "premier" origin sub service and well it's just dull.

First up the network and connection issues in the demo and beta are mostly cleared up now which is one thing I had a couple of disconnects or weird network problems but no more than you just get anyway it was mostly solid.

Teaching myself Blender 2.8 progress report

Well, this is a lot easier than bloody Lightwave (LW), that's for sure. I want to open source Icar, so I've decided to start rebuilding my models in Blender. Most of the original LW are old, tired and have dodgy renders, so I am happy to redo. It's so much easier to learn 2.8; even given that most of the tutorials use the lightyears-different 2.7 UI rather than the sexy 2.8.

Fallout 76: rather than fixing bugs lets unfix them

F76 has been a bit of a disaster a broken game that is buggy as hell and just not all that fun.

Then there was the canvas bag saga where the super special 200 dollar edition which should have shipped with a canvas bag shipped with a nylon trash bag

Then they offered a couple of dollars in store currency in exchange (not enough to buy a virtual bag)

Then they offered to fix that but leaked all the people personal data
