Here kitty kitty
Sthenno linked me to a new kind of idle game that is a cross between cookie clicker and civilization.  It is a lot more interesting than most idle games because you actually have a lot of control over how you design your economy and there are so many kinds ...

Sell those beds
This past weekend Full Throttle and I were talking about my career prospects.  He was surprised that I never became a stock trader since it seemed to him that I would be extremely talented at it.  After all, if I spend my life trying to optimize my way thro...

A team effort
Initially I started playing this Diablo 3 season with the idea of running a pet build.  The strongest Witch Doctor build this time around is Helltooth Pets, which doesn't even have a spammable skill and relies purely on pets and cooldowns.  I liked the idea...

Gentlemanly behaviour
Don't be a gentleman. Not to say that everything associated with the word gentleman is questionable, or even evil... but an awful lot of it is. I just read an article about how to be a gentleman on your first date with a woman, and it made me sad as anythin...

Bad show
Today Elli came home with the name of a comedian she wanted to find on Youtube.  Her friend had told her tales of the hilariousness of said comedian and Elli needed to see it for herself.  We found it easily enough, but once we found it I was sorely disappo...

Material for starting a fire
This week I decided to try out Tinder.  I usually use OKCupid for dating, but since Tinder is The Next Big Thing I figured I should at least figure out what is going on with it.  The general impression I have is that Tinder is a hookup app, mostly there to ...

A rare opportunity
One thing I really like about parenting is having complicated discussions with Elli, and figuring out afterwards how I could have done those conversations better.  This week she and I went out for dinner at a pub and she asked me why all of the TVs were sho...

Unsatisfying workarounds
My final edits on Camp Nightmare have been sent off, ready to be turned into a thing.  It took awhile because playing the game over the holidays revealed something to me that was bothersome - people found one particular mechanic very difficult to understand...

Focus less
I have been thinking about how game companies design games with too much focus on particular things, often losing out in other important ways.  Some examples: In Skyrim, there are talent choices you can take that allow you to get critical hits.  Crits do fi...

A new Diablo 3 season has started, and I am enjoying playing it again.  I think Blizzard has done a lot of good things in terms of minor tweaks, and they added in some new and fun challenges in the form of Set Dungeons to give more content for people to wor...
