Be my friend in #PokemonGo, y’all!
LB: Amazing that I can still learn new things about these games after literally decades. #Mystodon
unlike Myst and Riven, which used non-transparent rectangular slices to overlap video onto the static game world, Myst III uses transparent images and transparent video. Furthermore, the video pixels are only rendered into the game when they actually differ from the source still, when they don't, they become transparent.
This is QWERPLINE, S02E01. It’s an audio show I make with LoadingReadyRun that I am very proud of.

Every time I see a toot from @dogo I do a double-take because his avatar looks like a recolored Homestar Runner head out of the corner of my eye.
The giant bird from Edanna in Myst III: Exile is a Ho-oh, change my mind. #Mystodon
One thing I've noticed while watching people play through big-budget games like Horizon Zero Dawn is the algorithmically-generated, phoneme-matched facial animations really do a huge disservice to the voice acting.
VA: 😭 Help me! My nephew ran away from home and he's the only family I have, I beg you to find him!
Character model: 😐 Beep boop I am a human being speaking these words to you beep boop. Shall I turn my head slightly to emphasize nothing in particular? Yes I shall.
In this world of sprawling epic sagas of endless scope and scale, having something called “Infinity Train” go from a delightful tone piece of a pilot to a magnificent novella of a short, single season arc is delightfully incongruous. It’s left me completely satisfied, while also leaving me with a ton of questions that I honestly hope remain unanswered forever.
It’s very, very good, in part _because_ it’s finite, and you should absolutely watch it.
It’s 10 11-minute episodes, and I would be perfectly happy if that’s all there ever was or will be. Not because it was bad (it’s not!), but because it did what it set out to do beautifully, and I don’t think there’s anything more that needs to happen there. I’m overjoyed that they got a full season, and I adore that this is what they chose to do with it.
