Seattle restaurant review: Phuket

For our readers in the Seattle area, I wanted to say a few quick words on what is becoming my absolute favorite Thai restaurant, Phuket.

Hard bosses and poorly-designed bosses—there's a difference

As a developer, doesn't it make more sense to leave your players feeling like they had a worthwhile ride instead of making them feel irritated and pissed by poor balance, lack of savepoints, bad design or any other misguided attempt to make the final bits of the game "challenging"? 

In defense of Nintendo and the myth of console shortages

The point of business is to make money and it more or less boils down to a numbers game. Sell as many products as you can for the highest price the market will accept. From the perspective of a business owner/investor/stockholder, having media "buzz" and hype is gravy, but the idea that Nintendo would sacrifice substantial amounts of profit and market share in exchange for media "buzz" is foolish.

Talking theater in Seattle

So I'm not sure how many of you reading this out there are theater or musical fans, but I'm sure there's got to be a couple, right?  Right?!?

There was supposed to be a downloadable update of 4 new heroes and 4 villains (!) for the game scheduled for 4/10, but the day has come and gone and no update yet.

Saving earth and whacking pinatas

EDF 2017, Viva Pinata, Quality Time and Cable Installation
