  1. When they say haptic do they mean the same haptic feedback you have on modern VR hardware? Or is it somehow better?If so then I didn't realize there was even a difference between rumble and haptics. Is the difference that you have control over the frequency and amplitude of the signal? From my searches it appears the clock speed is 3.2ghz. I would hope it would be higher. I guess I need to compare the actual workload difference between ps4 and ps5. I've always wished a console company would make a console where one of the cores is clocked way faster than the others. So many game engi
  2. Southpark still manages to have impeccable timing after all these years
  3. Going to Japan for a few weeks! 2 of those weeks I don't really have much of a plan. The best kind of vacation.
  4. Stopped playing clash royale a long time ago but now I'm playing some Capcom mobile card game called Teppen FWIW this game right now gives about 90% of the cards up front and by the time you learn them you've unlocked enough to build any card for free. I guess they are trying to build a player base now before they start charging through the nose. Sigh... I really like mobile card games. I just wish there was one I could pay 50$ for every card every year or so.
  5. One of the only games I've ever pre-ordered. After I saw that gameplay video I was sold.
  6. Game is looking crazy. If my memory serves correct you mentioned a while back that you were doing this entirely in blueprints. Is that still the case?
  7. Played the demo a couple weekends ago and finally bought it. I like the way the game is structured. I can play a level for a couple hours on a weekend then walk away easily.
  8. oh fuck yes. can't wait! Sat down with my partner to play Until Dawn at 7pm. We ended up playing the entire game in one sitting finishing around 2-3 am. That game is so good.
  9. Listening to a lot of German stuff lately.
  10. Cool, I've been learning a little bit over the years but in the last 3 months I decided to go to a group class and have a weekly private teacher. Not sure if you are interested in learning to read but wanikani.com is what I use for learning kanji. The first few levels are free then it costs. I kind of went a weird direction with my learning I only practiced reading kanji mostly so now I have a relatively advanced vocabulary and terrible grammar. After my first learning assesment the teacher wasn't quite sure how good I was at Japanese
  11. Thanks for the info The interest for me with analog vs digital for me is the general DSP concept of analog having infinite bandwidth. At the end it doesn't really make a huge difference but I wanted to experience it first hand. That said I'm trying to focus on the FM right now because I've already watched a few hours of videos. It's crazy you can partially reprogram the algorithms. Super interesting! I also managed to whip up a quick software synth the other night in an attempt to better understand what's going on. Actually calling it a synth is a bit generous... it makes a sin wave and
  12. Anything you can tell me will help a ton. The korg stuff is WAY more complicated than the TE stuff. I have FM, Bass and Keys volcas. I just went to the korg page now to check the FM specs. I guess I thought that since the bass and keys were analog I assumed the FM was also analog as well. I do have to say I'm fairly confused now. I guess I need to do a lot of reading to understand the differences. I understand the differences between analog and digital signals from a digital signal processing standpoint but at an audio level I obviously have a lot to learn. The one thing I'm learning

    Lichess looks amazing. I need to practice up. Also I took a brief look at the programming code for it on github. Even the code is super elegant
  14. So I've always loved drum machines since I was maybe 8 years old but back then they weren't only hard to find. They were expensive as hell! So I finally decided to give it a go and buy a couple Teenage Engineering pocket operators which are small musical devices that cost about 70$ CAD which all have sequencers but deviate in function depending on which one you have. I bought a chiptune one and a drum machine one. These things are so addictive. I sat down on the couch Saturday morning when I got them with the plan of just playing with them for a few minutes and suddenly 4 hours passe
  15. Just played it yesterday after not playing since season 2 started. Holy crap a lot has changed! Still so freaking fun, I have to watch myself or else I will lose my weekends :X I think I need to look up some videos. It seems like so much has changed since I stopped playing that I'm being a bit of a burden on my teammates unless I choose Winston who seems to have a relatively similar play-style to when I last played. Any recommendations for youtube channels or videos I can catch up on everything for 20 mins during my lunch hour?
  16. Awesome! That was pretty cool that the company allowed Keith and Dan to prototype some stuff for a while. That kind of opportunity is quite rare
  17. I haven't been actively doing 3d work in almost 10 years and I've missed it a ton. I decided to enter a contest my city is holding to design a park installation that acts as a shelter for rain as Vancouver has a very large rainfall. As part of this I also bought a license to Houdini to make my submission so I was learning Houdini at the same time while I made this. I might have taken on more than I can chew but I vowed to have something complete by the submission date because I hate not finishing projects. I made it but I wasn't able to make a diagram explaining how to take it apart and p
  18. Correct, the lower down the list the harder it is to learn for an English speaker. It's interesting to see how high up Polish is. Just goes to show how little I know about languages :C This I find extremely interesting and this is one of the biggest reasons why I want to learn a lot of languages with different roots.. Even with what I know of Japanese now I find the way you say things changes the way you interact. They have some words that simply don't have an English analog so we have to explain the situation it's used rather than it's direct meaning. I found this also to be true
  19. Also playing MK11, waiting for ranked to start! Also I started playing Clash Royale again. I hate that I'm playing this. I would pay 20-30$ for this game without all the bullshit.
  20. I'll make it language #4 if I'm ever able to penetrate Japanese. It's a pretty brutal language for a French/English speaker to learn. Interesting that Polish is so hard to learn for an English first language person. At least according to this website https://www.effectivelanguagelearning.com/language-guide/language-difficulty
