Slowly stumbling my way through all the new features in Gathering Storm, but I can feel the 'just one more turn' kicking in and it's already late 😅 Also, this is my first Civ 6 playthrough in 4K and the game looks soo good

Natural disasters are a lot of fun; I'm just waiting for something to accidentally devastate my cities…

This might be worth the entire expansion pack, to be honest.

I have never played Civ on the Switch, but I hear it's a pretty good port. However, it's a game that really benefits from a mouse and large screen. As a beginner, no idea — but try a small solo game and let it try and teach you, ease yourself in

Gotta admit, it's very satisfying to finally have the build queue feature back in Civ 6 🎉

(driving on a planet surface though is vomit central if you don't take it slow. We're so used to controlling a game like a game that we don't realize it would be too much for our bodies IRL. Need to understand the pacing difference and find a way to center yourself)

interestingly, it's one of the few VR games I can actually spend time in, because the cockpit is fixed around you. BUT you absolutely need to ensure your framerate is above 90fps in stations. Other players will lag you in ways that you might not notice but will make you sick

have you tried not hating glasses? 😜 It would be a shame to miss out on the future of computing because of childhood insecurities. I like my glasses — they make the world look better

"If I were to list how Super Meat Boy has made money since the Linux version dropped, starting with the highest earner, the list would be: Windows, [everything else], interest from bank accounts, Linux." what a quote 😂

I like how Google went and broke YouTube’s layout on iPad Pro again. Good job

i’m sure there are asterisks, like for pen support, and ‘iOS’ WebKit being used for Marzipan too. But, yes

no need to go crazy, just use it as C with classes and it’s much more fun 😈

Makes you wonder: input is the big problem for AR, but what if all mechanical input is tethered to your smartphone?

who the heck cares about game EULAs? Generic legalese from a parent company has scared you off? You should see what Windows does these days 😂
