So much writing about UX is about writing about UX.

"You see a mellow goblin named Drog."

Got Janice Polito (from System Shock 2) vibes from Dr. Chavez in The Surge. Not just me, right? Something about the voice, her tone and candour…

Pillars of Eternity saves via Steam Cloud do work when you're playing on different computers with the same OS, though. At least that.

Saved games of Pillars of Eternity do not work across Windows and Mac when transferred via Steam Cloud. 😞

As well as Vanquish, Darkness II, and Driver: San Francisco.

Far Cry 2, Hitman: Blood Money, and Metal Gear Solid Peacewalker HD are now playable on the Xbox One.

Similarly, most of the exciting stealth play in Metal Gear Solid happens early in the game, which gives it a lasting impression of being a "stealth game," even though the back 2/3 are barely about that…

Supposedly, the model of the radroach in Fallout 3 had far too many polygons to be rendered efficiently. But, because it was the very first enemy the player would see when starting, it was kept so it would make on new players a positive first impression. (Maybe also suggest that all enemies were so carefully modelled.)

So when someone says "if you do a fandom differently from me you're a cop," is the joke that they're actually the one doing the policing?

"In late 2015, one of the world's most priceless artifacts was stolen. The thieves (or activists, depending on your viewpoint) used Microsoft's Kinect to swipe it." Or did they!?

"Despite widespread acceptance of the caduceus as a medical symbol in the United States, it has been observed that the rod of Asclepius has 'the more ancient and authentic claim to be the emblem of medicine.'"

So, for medicine, use a single snake entwined on a rod—without wings—not the twin snakes with wings)

I had never thought Comic Sans would be helpful to readers with some forms of dyslexia.

"For me, being able to use Comic Sans is similar to a mobility aid, or a visual aid, or a hearing aid."
