    What's a computer?

    Actually, I think it would be good. In college we had a UNIX class and we had to learn basic stuff on the command line, how to use Emacs, etc. It's important.

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    Yeah, fair enough. Outlast and SOMA were also very good. I like walking simulators though, you can just kind of take in the graphics and the story and feel like you are there. Everyone has different tastes of course.

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    So you think video games appear out of the ether for free? That the developers don't work for years, that there aren't programmers, artists, musicians, designers, writers, etc. that all need to be paid and survive for years at a time before the game even makes a penny? Your argument makes no sense.

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    You are paying for an experience. Not just to be distracted from your life for a fixed period of time. If you enjoyed the experience, then it was worth it. Like, a 3 minute lap dance for $20 can be totally worth it. Are you going to tell the girl the dance should have been 2 hours and demand...

    That is a good point. The developer is Russian and the only 2 supported languages are English and Russian (both sub-titled, there are no voice actors).

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    It wouldn't work anyhow. By the time they designed new non-computer cars, retooled their factories, etc. the shortage may be over.

    What's a computer?

    I remember when Apple unveiled "The Cloud" and some dude in my elevator was telling me how it was some magic new technology and I told him it's just a server computer and he looked at me with a blank confused stare.

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    So the game has almost 1,000 very positive reviews. SteamSpy estimates that it sold between 20k and 50k copies. At $9 each, that sounds like a lot of money (and it's not bad for an indie game made mostly by one person) but development could have taken 1 year or more, meaning it may not even be...

    What's a computer?

    Absolutely agree. Also, maybe the original engines were made without computers, but now pretty much any modern vehicle (cars, airplanes, rockets, etc.) are heavily computerized. Many commercial air flights are fully auto-piloted when in the air (the pilot is needed only for take off and landing...

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    I don't even know what a cable throttle is. My car works just fine.

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    Yeah, that happened to my mom. She had a car for a few years, and the dealership was making so much on the used cars that it was cheaper for her to trade it in and get a new car (same model but latest year).

    What's a computer?

    Yes. That is an easier way to put it. Consumers use mobile because it does what they need easier and more conveniently. Creators use computers because they need the power and control. I guess it's easy to get locked in a bubble. I spend a lot of time here on the forum, or other ones for game...

    What's a computer?

    Yeah, I good way someone put it: When you remember how old the 60's sounded when you lived in the 90's. That's how long ago the 90's are today.
