This... Good Design is doing stuff that compromises your "artistic vision" so that people with disabilities can play it - and motion sickness when playing games is NOT a sign of lack of desire to play the games.
 
Bit of a tweet storm from me earlier:

Seriously, reviews keep mentioning the P&C option in #Obduction as a 'nice throwback'. For people with motion sickness, it's accessibility

There's dozens of beautiful games out there that I can never play, bcause nausea. And fewer things being released that aren't free roam.

So having a modern, beautifully designed, complex environment game that I can experience without getting sick? ALL THE YAYS!

And @cyanworlds added that accessibility without detracting or dumbing down the experience for others. That is good game design.

Hops off her game accessibility soapbox for the night

I've started this, and it's probably the first time after wandering into the world's of Myst and Riven that I've felt that sense of wonder again... Joy at just wandering around looking at things...

What a guy, and what an inspiration. Doesn't matter he lost his legs, he still keeps cheerful.

If I ever had a personal hero, I think Alex Zanardi would be it.

I'm not happy, but that's OK, because I'm not unhappy either...

Wow does this describe things wonderfully.

It's a B&Q - you know what to expect. This is a pretty large one, with a good garden section and friendly, helpful staff.

Stayed overnight for our anniversary. Paid for the extra 3-course meal provision, and were in the Redman room for the night. The food was excellent, with the staff happy to answer questions or make minor changes at request. The room was enormous, made even more so by the size of the bathroom. A proper capsule-coffee machine was a nice bonus, making tasty coffee (Upon arrival the staff provided a fresh thermos of milk); Farrer's of Kendal Hot Chocolate and Tea was also available in-room. It was a shame that the room doesn't have air conditioning, and the little mini-bar was rather loud - those are the only reasons I'm giving the hotel 4 stars, as it did get extremely hot overnight and even with the sash windows open there was not much of a breeze, which then meant when the little mini-bar fridge went on it was noticeable and woke you up. Very minor issues, quickly fixed in one case (switch off the mini bar :D), and endured as you would anywhere without air conditioning in the other case. Either way, an excellent place to stay.

Good food, if a little expensive and very busy. Somewhat posh in presentation, eschewing plates for boards, but good food, good coffee and attentive staff give a really nice feel.

The Hollies is a really nice farm shop with friendly staff, a good selection of fresh produce, a great butchers, fantastic cheeses, delicious fresh baked pies and cakes and nibbles from a local baker that are just lovely. If you want a bit of brunch or nice joint to roast, they can supply it for you.

Really nice ice-cream. We went through on a day-out to Chatsworth, and saw the ice-cream sign, so thought we'd grab some. Beautiful little farm-yard, cats wandering around (Very friendly, just a warning to those who are allergic, they do come up to you). Going into the little shop there was a wide selection of ice-cream choices. We only sampled that, and were just in-and-out, so can't comment on the other attractions, but the ice-cream itself was really, really nice - creamy, full bodied, no granularity or crunch, just a lovely smooth (almost gelato-like) consistency and really, really tasty.

Really nice garden, with two quite distinct areas. The first is a lovely formal garden. When we visited, the roses were in full bloom and were totally stunning, a beautiful display of colour and smell. The second area, up towards the "far end", is a less formal (Though still well managed) wooded area. A small river runs through, with a man made waterfall, boat house and other areas. This was a really peaceful and contemplative area, and made for a nice contrast to the more formal layout. We had a lovely afternoon walking through the gardens, and could easily have made it a full day.
