Re: General

Wow, Go is a challenge. I don't think we have an AI that can beat a master yet. There's a fantastic documentary on the 2016 game between IBM's AlphaGo and Lee Sedol. The entire part on "the big move" is surprisingly gripping. The part I find really fascinating is that I think it's based a...

Re: Free Games and Stuff

Tokaido board game is free on steam Mable and the Wood is free on gog Bottom of the 9th is also free. If you love baseball, it's a good simulation of the pitcher vs batter stare down. Also, even if you don't love baseball (like me), Bottom of the 9th is still worth looking at. There's an excellent ...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

... A week is represented by a ring of 7 blobs, one blob per day of the week. But the ring isn't round and the blobs are not all the same size and shape. ... This is actually a form of synesthesia . Colored letters (graphemes - the shape of the letters - rather than phonemes - the sound of the lett...

Re: What have you watched recently?

Parasite I knew less than nothing about this movie going in. I say less than nothing because for some reason, I thought it was a horror movie and not - what it was. I'm not sure what it was. I think it was listed as a comedy, and it was funny in the best kind of way (characters do in character thin...

Re: Favorite Games of the Decade!

TECHNICALLY the decade isn't over yet. The Gregorian Calendar swaps from 1 B.C. to A.D. 1, with no year 0 between. You start the count from 1, not 0. 2020 is not the start of a new decade, but the end of an old one. The same is true of 2010, which was the final year of the previous decade. So some ...

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

Picked up Into the Breach since it was on sale at Steam (50% off.) It seems pretty simple at first but as a combat puzzle game it got deeper the more I played. Two hours passed in a flash and I would have kept playing but I had to do the work thing the next day. I thought I was disappointed with th...

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

A (bad) survival horror game trying to add "realism" to ammo mechanics made me say that they're never going to be Receiver, which got me thinking about Receiver again, so I redownloaded Receiver and have been playing again. How is that Receiver so good? It shouldn't work that well, based ...
