The CODEX mod feels like the second DLC Civ: Beyond Earth deserved but never had

Bilingual Blogging?

Saturday, May 26, 2018

French being my first language, I’ve been questioning myself regarding whether I should blog in English or in French. 

In French, I reach my relatives and people close to me, although they might not be interested in what I share. And my audience of French readers is pretty small… In English, I make my content available to pretty much the whole Internet, at the price of making it somewhat less interesting and accessible to my relatives and friends. What about mixing languages? Not sure… Seems to me there’s no win-win situation here. 

I’ve read a ton of articles and discussions about it, but I’ve always had a hard time deciding what’s the best thing to do. The last article (it’s actually a rant!) I read covers most of the possible scenarios and brings to light their shortcomings. 

Read the article here: 

Depending what your blog is about and how you see it, there isn’t necessarily one best thing to do. In the meantime, I’ll stick to English.

Attempted to play Master of Orion 3 again. Gave up after only 20 minutes. What a mess!

Color Highlighter in Sublime Text

Sunday, April 22, 2018

I had a hard time getting the Color Highlighter package to work with Sublime Text...

My mistake? Color Highlighter doesn't work in Sublime 3. It only works in Sublime 2.

Once you figure that out, install Sublime 2 then follow the Color Highlighter install instructions. It will work just fine.

Nicolas Cage on Justice League

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Found this gem a few weeks ago. Nicolas Cage's review of Justice League: 

"I did," Cage said in response to being asked if he'd seen the film. "I thought it was fun. That's all I'm going to say."

Shortest review ever!

Okay, maybe SimCity 2013 isn't that terrible after all...

Riven Part II

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Riven is one of the best and most captivating games I played in a very long time. It guides you (often in a very cryptic way) through amazing quests in weird environments. It makes you think and wonder what to do next and how to do it. The second part of my play-through was in line with my experience of the first part. It was still cryptic and still very fascinating. 

The way the game forces you to choose how the story is going to end is compelling and it makes things unpredictable and exciting to someone, like me, who’s new to Riven. 

Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything here. 

If you liked the first Myst, give Riven a try, you’ll have a great time.
