Kill Six Billion Demons » Seeker of Thrones 5-55

“Kassardis knew instantaneously that the words of the Very Wise Frog had come true. For the canyon had three entrances, and down each came one of his wives, armed and thirsty for blood. First, small and cunning Vastoki with the glint of her rifle sights, then enormous and brutal Littari, dragging her ...

Torment: The Tides of Numenera has its weak spots. Planescape: Torment did too.

Numenera does not surpass its predecessor.

If their order were reversed, Numenera would have far surprised Planescape. But as it stands it is a better-written but expectation-weighed worthy successor that doesn't quite surpass it.

It doesn't need to. I will remember them both.

I grudgingly admit that that's some fantastic performance. Google, deliver us SOONER thank you.

Get Started Using WebAssembly (wasm) - Course by @guybedford

Get Started Using WebAssembly (wasm) - Course by @guybedford

This course begins with some small steps for working with WebAssembly straight away using online tools wasm Explorer and wasm Fiddle to try out the examples in the browser. We start by calling a WebAssembly function from JS, then a JS function from WebAssembly, then go on to reading and writing WebAssembly memory from JS. To move beyond these online sandboxes, we show the exact steps for setting up and running a complete local WebAssembly build w...

At the very least I hope ARkit will force Google to shake up their namby-pamby strategy with Tango and the awful decision to keep sticky-camera-AR locked to Tango instead of generalizing it to existing hardware to the extend clearly possible.

More advanced hardware dependent stuff like occlusion, millimeter accuracy, global spatial memory etc can stay with Tango, ofc.

It's a shame that they didn't even integrate Tango with the Pixels. Letting Lenovo and Asus ruin its future would be unforgivable.
