PICO-8 is a fun thing - a 'fantasy console', that harks back to the days of 8-bit microcomputers and BASIC (but this time it's a Lua dialect). I can't wait till it runs on Raspberry Pi, it would make a great little standalone unit.

It's true. After 10 years, I'll be wrapping up my games business. Later this year, I'll be moving on to other things. I am still going to be around. I'd still like to attend GDC in San Francisco every year. Ludum Dare is a thing I'll continue to work on and run (and if I'm lucky, I might be able ...

"Vektor Wars is a 3d arcade game where you shoot neon laser robots in the face with neon lasers in a neon laser world."
I'm enjoying Vektor Wars a lot. I like it because I like running around a neon infused Tron-esque environment shooting robots in the face with my giant and colourful lasers, I like it because it's ...

I miss the very retro aesthetic of wireframe vector graphics before hidden line removal became practical. The usual way of handling depth was to fade with distance. Its not an aesthetic which made its way to mainstream arcade games, for the most part.

The official launches of Sony and Microsoft's game boxes hasn't made a big impact on the market -- but there are big expectations for the TV-based gaming space.

"... there was a strong correlation in women. So the women who played violent video games more thought of themselves as a better catch than those who played them less."

Video gamers are sexy, or at least they think they are

Our study found that those people - including women - who are most interested in sex play the most violent games.

+Elektra Kosh Edwards Sure, they are generalizing based on the correlation they observed (with a sample size of 2 x 500). Some people in that cohort will be like you, but on average this is the trend they saw.

Introduction
I make video games, web apps, and enjoy figuring out how molecular machines work.

When it comes to Google+, I'm all about managing signal-to-noise. 
  • If you have a specific interest, check out my Collections ! Generally I target posts to these so people can follow me and only see the stuff that interests them.
  • I have a bunch of circles relating to my interests - a few examples are Game Development, Unity 3D, Science (online), Android, Python and local circles like Australia and Melbourne. I also have a Random weird-stuff catch-all circle :)
  • I only post something publicly outside a Collection if I feel like it has general interest, or if it's (infrequent) shameless self promotion.
  • If you follow me, I'll briefly check your profile. If the posts or profile information fit one of my interest circles, I'll follow you back. If you are a spammer, redneck racist or politico-religious wingnut I'll block you and report your account if appropriate.
Phew !

A pleasant restaurant dining area and slightly fancier pizzas than the average take away joint. Amazingly cheap for the quality & quantity provided. They do an interesting Beef and Mustard pizza which is decent.

Decent pizza, and competitively priced. I particularly like one of the more unique new additions to the menu - the Paneer and Chilli pizza.

Update: No longer at this location (But it WAS good, just a little pricey).

This is my favorite Malaysian place in the south eastern suburbs. Staff are friendly, prices are reasonable and the food is great. In particular - try the Bu bu Cha cha and the Ice Kachang ... delicious !

Forget KFC ... this is the fried chicken you have been looking for ... it's so so good. Great spicy option if you are into that too. Their house beer is decent too, for the price.
