Y'know, I've worked on good games and I've worked on bad games. And as far as I can tell, the amount of work it takes to release a bad game is no different from the amount it takes to make a good one.

My browser is inexplicably sluggish, even slowing down the rate at which the cursor updates its position. "It must be mining bitcoin", I think, shaking my head.

Soooo if a person is sincerely capable of saying that one man is more masculine than another, does that mean they don't believe gender is binary?

How much would it change the Zelda games if the healing fairies greeted you with things like "Oh god, not again" and "Please don't do this to me"
