+Riff Zifnab - according to Steam I've clocked 19 hours so far.

It's a fun little game, approximately the same core loop as many other survival games (gather resources to stay alive and acquire upgrades to more effectively gather resources etc.). The scenery it wraps around this is quite pretty; the generated landscapes and reshuffled critters do a good job of feeding the visual cortex pleasing novelty.

This is all badly marred by marketing, price, and expectations more in line with a big-ticket title. Also a clearly rushed launch with many rough corners and bugs ranging from the small to the gamebreaking, i.e. it'll crash on startup on any CPUs not supporting SSE4.1.

An excellent review of RimWorld, in that it'll be very easy for you to tell if this is a game you'll like or not.

So this is pretty excellent just on the face of it.

However!

This needs to also be interpreted through the lens of https://xkcd.com/1211/.

In other words: we now live in a world in which trained police dinosaurs hunt down robotic drones. This is reality, and it is awesome.

(H/T Charles Stross via http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2016/02/maneuvers-in-the-dark.html for the insight.)

Hi Abe, This is a beautiful photo. You are on the heels of your dad with your photos. Maybe you and Keith someday can plan a photo exhibit together. See you, Judy

I've been meaning to put together a list like this for a while; this has heavy overlap with my hypothetical personal list.
Around 2003 I came across Charlie Munger’s 1995 speech, The Psychology of Human Misjudgment, which introduced me to how behavioral…
