Don't have a strong opinion on Mark Kern myself but it looks like the article has been updated and seems a little milder than the link indicates.

The exits on the puzzle under the guys holding the box? There's a little path on box itself that becomes available after 7-8 beams. Once you do that then the puzzle at the guys feet opens up and can be solved without other dependencies.

Oh he's been around for longer than that I think -- too many caps in GZ's posts.

I'd say this breaks Hofstadter's Law. Does for me anyway.

On 1 being prime, "only divisible by 1 or itself" (what I remember hearing as a first definition of prime) seems to be satisfied by 1, "exactly 2 distinct divisors" doesn't. I don't know what benefits are gained by 1 not being prime other than the fundamental theorem of arithmetic being cleaner to state.

I'm going to give it a shot -- I was pretty impressed by google cardboard, so I don't think I'll be disappointed. My biggest concern is more about having enough content rather than the quality of the experience.

The RPI community is pretty large and helpful, and their overall mission is pretty noble.

Eben Upton indicated there won't be another major hardware upgrade like this for awhile (longer than between 2 and 3 anyway). I do hope the next version has some increases in external memory speed (usb 3/sata/etc) as well as more ram.

I liked the Atari 2600 ET game. Maybe because I hadn't seen the movie, but compared to most 2600 games it was pretty intricate/interesting.

All these names remind me of this interview series (I think someone here on blues made me aware of it): http://gambit.mit.edu/updates/audio/looking_glass_studios_podcast/ Pretty interesting.

I'm a fan -- loved Braid too. The game will allow you to run into something that seems really hard because it has a lot of rules/symbols that you haven't seen before, but if you skip it and keep going you will eventually encounter (I have so far anyway) something that highlights how just one of those rules/elements works. But I'm still early yet, there could be some insane stumpers in store.

For me it's not that the combat is the same, just that the combat is deep and fun as it was in dark souls (vs Bethesda) -- in both cases it feels like the developers took care on the most important/common thing you do in the game. They both offer an interesting multiplayer aspect as well.

Reassembly is another take on this kind of game, but 2d and not f2p.

Pretty good metroid-like game -- had an area that you get locked out of near the end so I missed one item, never felt like replaying. Getting ready to dig into Axiom Verge soon, wonder how it stacks up. (SC is associated with Orson Scott Card in case that's a problem for some, you know, due to the Ender's Game movie being so bad.)

It might take you a bit over $200, but I was leaning towards CH fighterstick + pro throttle over Saitek when I was thinking about getting Elite.

This video has a decent comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceOdOytgT64
