I assumed Apple Music would just be a clone of the other streaming music services, but I am very impressed by one thing: gapless playback. I just listened to Muse's Absolution, and each song flowed seamlessly into the next! Not a single gap between songs that were recorded to flow into each other, not even for a millisecond. No other streaming music service I've tired does this. Well done, Apple!

Terminator Genisys is a pretty good film that could've been a great film in the hands of a great director, like James Cameron. Unfortunately, it has flaws in multiple areas.

The script is ambitious with some cool ideas, but it is also sometimes confusing, doesn't explain things adequately, and has a twist that sours the film. Time travel films by their nature can be confusing, but they should still explain the events that change timelines. Terminator Genisys fails to do this.

Two roles were miscast: Kyle Reese and John Conner. Jai Courtney (Reese) and Jason Clarke (Conner) just don't seem like soldiers. They come across more like buddies that like to hang out in bars. Courtney's Reese would never have defeated the terminator in the first film. Worse, Courtney and Emilia Clarke (Sarah Conner) have absolutely no chemistry. I enjoyed Clarke's energetic and lively performance, but it did lack a toughness and severity I would've expected from this version of Sarah Conner. Schwarzenegger delivers an enjoyable performance.

Finally, something was off with the pacing or editing that caused me to never be on the edge of my seat. I never got very involved in the film.

The film is certainly better than the third and fourth installments in the series, and I hope to see another sequel, but it does not measure up to T2 or even to the original Terminator, which are two of the best written, directed, and edited action films ever made. Still, if you're a fan of the series, or if you just want to enjoy some good action and special effects, Terminator Genisys is worth seeing.

RIP James Horner. Thank you for all the stirring cinematic music you created. Your scores touched my heart many times. :(

This is the 30-minute Fallout 4 presentation Todd Howard gave for E3. If you're a Fallout fan, you will want to watch every minute! Very cool stuff.

Insightful and short. We can only be fully effective when we are wholly congruent with our values and completely honest with ourselves.

Do I dare hope? Please don't tease me, Bethesda, and don't leave me at the altar like Valve!

I'm absolutely thrilled by the Supreme Court decision on marriage equality! Congratulations to my friends who have worked so long to achieve this victory. Love is universal, and anyone who wants to celebrate their love with the public commitment of marriage should be allowed to do so.

The WWDC keynote was a bit of a snoozer, but I expected that. Most exciting announcements: proactive Siri, open-source Swift, split-screen multitasking for iPads (but not my Mini), automated UI testing in Xcode, and a low-power mode for iPhones.

But the biggest news from WWDC wasn't announced in the keynote: You no longer need a developer account to install apps on your devices!

Biggest disappointment: no new Apple TV nor third-party apps for Apple TV. I'd love to see Apple TV turned into a game console for iOS. And why did they spend so much time on Apple Music? There's nothing there for developers.

I don't usually post anything political, but this blog summarizes my economic political beliefs better than anything I could write. It makes a great argument for why progressive policies can encourage entrepreneurship better than conservative policies. If you're curious what makes me tick politically, read this. The author is British, so substitute "Republican" for "Tory" and "Democrat" for "Labour", if you're in the U.S.

The Gotham finale was insane, and not in a good way. They're not even trying to make sense now. Even Penguin did a "king of the world", complete with a ledge. If the show returns, it should fully embrace being a ridiculous farce and stop trying to be a somber, serious drama. That part never worked. Give me "Pow!" and "Bam!" any day over dreary skies and serious policemen.
Sorry, guys, but there’s really no other way to convey the complete WTFery of Gotham’s terrible but entertainingly insane season one finale than to list the many, many questions it left me with. Seriously, if anybody knows what the hell was up with the chicken, please let me know.

Introduction
I'm a man with two brains. One brain is an engineer. The other brain is an artist. That's probably why I've been drawn to video games since I was 11. My career so far as been ruled by my engineer brain, and I've had a fairly successful career as a software engineer.

But my artist brain has been asserting dominance for the past few years, and I now want to making a living doing something that expresses my creativity. I want to make games for a living. Specifically, I want to make games that tell stories that have as much impact as a movie and as much depth as a novel.
