1. Another Japanese fantasy RPG about eternity and cycles. Except this one is a ton of fun. You look like a potato in cutscenes, though. And Christ knows who your beloved is.

  2. Weird and bombastic, senseless and silly, Fallout 4 is a Michael Bay-style sendoff to the franchise I knew and loved. Despite its flaws, it’s a good game in its own right, but it seems for every piece of it you like, there are two pieces holding it back.

  3. At time of writing, I’m surrounded by boxes and a small pile of my personal belongings. I’ve known that tomorrow was coming for months, and I’m not unhappy that it has, but I have a feeling that its impact won’t fully hit me until it’s over. Tomorrow, I will be leaving London.

  4. Lately, I’ve spent most of my downtime writing a first application in Node.js, the runtime environment based on Google’s V8 JavaScript engine. Running JavaScript on the server sounds funny at first sight, but the more I’ve gotten into it, the more I think it’s a sign of a coming paradigm shift in web development.

  5. It’s been three months since last so I figured it’s time to make another crossfade of music as streams of consciousness. Mostly films this time, as I haven’t quite found the time to play as many video games. There’s also been a relative lack of games which have interested me.

  6. Pillars of Eternity is one of those games that prove the Kickstarter funding path to be viable. That, perhaps, is what’s most important about it, but there are nevertheless a lot of other things that are interesting, to say the least.
