Okay, so it’s been ages since I last made a blog post. It’s not that I don’t have things to talk about, I have several things I want to talk about in fact, it’s just I never seem to get off my arse and write about them (to be fair, the whole “getting off my arse” statement fails in this context as I can’t type very well when standing up, so I would most definitely have to be on my arse to make a blog post).
First things first. This blog has now moved from tumblr to WordPress, the main reason for this being that WordPress has much better support for posting code than tumblr. I’ve ported over most of the posts from the old blog, but all the comments have been lost, still, there weren’t many so it’s not a huge loss.
Now, as for the things I have to talk about, below is the subset of things which have happened to me in the time between my last blog post and now that I feel are blog post worthy topics. Hopefully in the coming
weeksmonths I’ll make time to actually write them.
I bought a mac mini shortly after Christmas so I could try my hand at OS X development (not OS X development specifically, but cross platform with proper OS X support). I plan to make a post on my view of the OS X experience (experience is definitely the word… I’m still not convinced it’s a good experience though), as well as the software I need as a PC user to make OS X tolerable.
Following on from the OS X thing, I was going to make a follow up post to my previous CMake tutorial with guidelines on how to get CMake to work correctly with things like OS X bundles. I used the past tense on purpose there as I have since been swayed away from CMake (which was still stress inducing to work with) onto premake4 (which is simply brilliant to use). As a result of this, I might instead do an introduction post to premake4, with a comparison (pros and cons) against CMake… hopefully it won’t be too much of a CMake bashing.
Beyond Good and Evil
BG&E is a game I picked up on XBL in a “HD remake” form. I’d never played the original so had no idea what to expect from the game and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised. I’ll save the details for the actual post, but I will just say that if you haven’t played this game then do so. It was easily the most fun I’ve had playing a game in a good while.
This goes without saying really. I loved Portal, and I love Portal 2 (what can I say, I’m a sucker for dark, sarcastic humour); I got up at 6:30am to play this game the morning it was released, and have played through the single player campaign 3 times already (I still need to play through the co-op campaign fully).
So there you have it. A blog post on things I want to blog about… how meta is that.comments powered by Disqus
