    Miss the GCW Zero? The RetroGame RG350 is the modern equivalent

    I was really surprised when a colleagues told me that these new consoles struggle with some games that my "old" Pandora runs flawlessly.

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    People still wear masks in the public transports (where it's mandatory), but in the streets it's getting less and less common...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I've recently tried Crysis again, last times I didn't get further than what was in the demo (first time because it was the demo, second time because I lost my save and didn't feel like restarting and moved on to another game). I feel like either I'm playing it wrong or it fails to deliver what...

    Are you missing Lightguns ?

    I enjoy lightguns games but the wiimote approach doesn't work very well. I still have a good memory of the time I used a lightgun and a DDR dance mat to play Sin And Punishment, moving by stepping on the mat and shooting with the lightgun. It was exhausting, the lightgun didn't work very well...

    Macron's presidency has been prophesied in King Smurf: His campaign consisted of visiting everyone and telling them he agreed with them. He ended his campaign with a hollow speech that ended with him shouting excitedly As soon as he was elected he started to pretend he's better than anyone...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    Having a good immune system isn't just about taking proper care of your body. There could be genetics or micro-biological reasons that makes your immune system weaker. There are also cases where the immune system is actually too strong and turns against his host (that's why it's a good thing...

    EpicGames Client ?? What do you think about it ?

    It'll fit nicely in my virtual shelf next to the unopened GTA IV. If I can get the Epic Games Launcher to stop showing me the error 500 page in every possible language (so far I had Polish, Russian, English and French).

    Pandora nub problems

    My left nub does this as well, it will work fine a few seconds after reset but will quickly act weirdly, drifting or not wanting to go in a direction. I've mostly disabled it.

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I didn't find New Vegas that good, but I still enjoyed it. I had modded it quite a bit so I don't know what part came from mods and what was from the original game. It became a bit boring and repetitive towards the end and it felt like it missed plenty of opportunities but it still managed to...

    I had the impression that there were still many people in the streets during the lockdown but the streets were a lot more busy yesterday when I went out for grocery shopping. And today I'm rediscovering the sound of car horns, and the background noise of trafic. :(

    The Communication Cube

    More like "hello this is the website, let me load 3Mb of data... ok I can start showing the content you want to see... oh wait, I need to ask you to set your 'privacy settings' first. Or you can click that 'Allow every tracker' shortcut button. Now back to the conten... oh wait, I think you...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I recently finished Batman: Arkham Asylum. It was enjoyable from start to finish, it's been a long time since I didn't feel like a AAA game was overstaying it's welcome. It's a pretty good batman simulator: you travel around with the bat-grappling-hook, you beat down mooks by the dozens when...

    Lockdown is very problematic for sex workers in countries where their jobs are either illegal or in a gray area that makes it impossible for them to organize/unionize. They can't work during lockdown and can't benefit from the social packages that other workers get. I'm not saying that the...

    Oh sure, most of the time the people at the top will be nominated for political reasons and will have a political agenda (financial corruption is not necessary, you can just put someone who shares your beliefs and think he's acting for a good cause). However, they aren't the ones who'll conduct...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    From my experience, it's a bit more complicated than that, especially with such large institutions. First of all, you'll have plenty of people who went to work there because they want to be useful (you don't go into international public health for cash and glory). Many of them will be wary of...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I've recently finished Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. Simple but fun western FPS, with all the staples of western stories, though maybe not enough indoor shootouts. I like the way the story is told (you play the story as told by the protagonists years later, so it will sometimes slow down as the...

    Does the Pyra have something similar to IME (Intel Management Engine)?

    Ooops, I had written from what I knew from mobile chipsets with Trustzones and other similar secure element, I expected IME to be something similar according to what other people wrote here, but it looks like it's not the case. After reading up a bit about IME it does seem to be a very bad...

    Release NXEngine-evo

    Oh yes, I spent many times retrying. I was able to get to the last stage many times, but never been able to beat it. At the end, it felt too frustrating to had to redo the whole level before. I got to a point where I could get through it without too many problems so it got boring to have to...

    I don't think there's a conspiracy behind this. However, I think there'll definitely be attempts to take advantage of the situation to spin some narrative. Authoritarian government will use it to tighten control of the population (Orban already started by seizing unlimited government powers for...

    The fog is not necessarily pollution fog, it can just be water, pollen or other "natural stuff". But from what I've read it looks like even if car-based pollution and CO2 emissions dropped a lot, some pollution sources (especially from stuff sprayed on the fields and wood-based home heating) are...
