Yonder is a new game. I like to help indie devs, so today I thought I’d call out and comment on a new game set to hit the PS4 and Windows markets this July. Called “Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles”, it’s primarily an exploration and building game targeted it a casual audience: no fighting and very little “story”. For once, a game targeted at my kind of crowd – if I still played games, that is.
In short: You need to make a CD.

Last time I criticized the Free Software Foundation, it was unwarranted – I hadn’t found the back-link to the page that explained what they were saying. This time, it looks like I can blame their ambiguity.
Since I am so adamantly against this game and yet frequently returning to its subculture, I thought I ought to address it. First, to be sure I wasn’t completely blabbering nonsense, I did some research on the Touhou Project at wikia (UPDATE: use this source instead: the Touhou wiki). This post is divided into two large sections:

It’s also in stark contrast to my optimism in trying a “truly” free software distro, Dynebolic. Allow me to compare experiences…
The title of this post is a joke. For you non-geeks out there, WIN 32 is basically the technical side of what’s behind your graphical user interface (GUI) windows.
Bill Gates decided it was time to blatantly copy Steve Jobs in every respect now that the competitor CEO is gone. The short of it is this: Windows is now finger friendly. Microsoft is copying Apple in the fact that the GUI has changed from actual windows to GUI buttons, so it’s like you’ll be working on your iPhone instead of your computer.

CNet and Ars have more technical details if you want them, including information about the removal of the start menu, one of the most useful features of Windows, in my opinion.
