Clive Barker's Undying [nostalgia]


I have an unstoppable hunger for old games!
So this too has been digested!

Undying is a game developed in 2001 with the Unreal Engine by EA with the story written by Clive Barker.

In the game you have to help Patrick Galloway in his adventure with strange weapons and equally strange spells to help his friend, among twists, creepy monsters and lugubrious environments.

Some screen:

CAD with LEGO: MLcad + LDraw

I'm building a Lego pc case and I need some help with the parts/building project and I found this:

MLCad only and Website:

MLCad + LDraw libraries (if you don't have LD... use this):

- The melting point of Lego bricks (I read 100°C somewhere)
- The hot plastic will make the air healthier?

- Where to order kilos and kilos of bricks?
- Grounding? (Pc cases are metal)
- Electric/magnetic radiations?
I'm crazy?

Ultra smartphones

Have you seen the presentation of the new Samsung Galaxy S4?
Yes, it is interesting.
But this increase in hardware on smartphones does not seem "too much"?

I think so, but at least is the excellent research & development that can bring progress in all technologies (more capacious 
batteries, more power, less consumption)

Finally Twitter for Windows 8

What a waste of space.


But IMHO only TweetDeck is a good Twitter client with its multi-column approach (general timeline, interactions, tweets of your preferred users, etc...)

Virtual Reality

What happened to the Virtual Reality so often dreamed in the 80's and 90's?

virtual reality now?

What do we have today? Especially in the homes of consumers?

Sony Move: ok, but it seems very primitive
Nintendo Wiimote: Like Move, more or less
MS Kinect: Good, detects motion, objects (with nothing in your hands) and "textures" (pictures).

But none of these immerses the player / user in a virtual world as we thought then.

romantic virtual reality vision

What is missing? The classic goggles to wear, maybe with orientation sensors to direct the viewport (the view of the game, the camera in the 3D environment) and then show to the player what he should see.

MS IllumiRoom for the Kinect 2 and XBOX720
The next Xbox will have, as an accessory, a projector to project the game on the walls of your room (maybe using the Kinect to see where you're looking at?). Is it considered AR (augmented reality) or VR?
We'll see ...

Nope, Google Glass is not VR imho, but AR like Google Googles in your ... googles.

What do you think? What's the next step? What's the true VR?

Gnome founder: bye bye Linux, I'm on Mac now


And now we know why Gnome is a little too much inspired to OSX interface...
We are always inspired by things we like.
Just kidding, just kidding...
And nope, I don't like the Gnome default/OSX style.

EA has released the new SimCity game and  has generated online a shitstorm of considerable size, these are the main reasons:

5. No control over regional transport (future DLC?)
6. No subways (future DLC?)
7. Cloud saves only
8. Origin client
9. Dumbed down gameplay
10. Bugs
11. Busy servers
12. Fake reviews with high votes

Windows BLUE, what's on your wishlist?

What's on your wishlist for the next Windows update?
  • better search (All, Apps, Settings, File)
  • more personalization without mess with regedit (i.e.:filetype icons, start screen backgrounds, etc...)
  • more out-of-the-box features
  • better standard apps (and many apps don't have a interface in docked mode)
  • better windows tiling (modernUI too), magnetic windows edges on desktop
  • modernUI apps work everywhere (WP8, W8, W8RT)
  • apps can run independently of Start Screen (i.e.: multi-monitor setup)
  • rebuild of old dialogs (i.e.: mouse/screensaver settings dialogs are from 1995 or 1998 or 2001?)
