I usually try to stay away from news and politics in my posts, but the horrendous acts perpetrated in Paris can only be met with unanimous condemnation: I am close to the French people in mourning their dead. I can’t believe whoever planned those attacks can really think such acts will in some way help… [Read more]

I like Neil Gaiman, I really do: he’s definitely a fantastic storyteller, and I should read more of his works, especially since American Gods proved to be such a good book back when I had the chance to read it the first time… Now, I happened to stumble upon a free online printing of A… [Read more]

People at GameTrailers must be reading this blog 😀 : roughly a week after my article on Free-to-Play, the new episode of Bonus Round has Geoff Keighley, Michael Pachter and Garnett Lee discussing exactly the same issue, trying to figure out if pay-to-win is here to stay and how, in general, free-to-play multiplayer games can… [Read more]

There’s “Free to Play”, “Free to play” and “free to play”

A few days ago, an interesting docu-film named “Free to Play” – produced by Valve – was made available on Steam (for free, ofc): the movie chronicles the events that led to (and followed) The International Dota 2 Championship in 2011, as witnessed by some of its participants.

I like to have some humorous pic/chart/drawing hanging in my work-office: it reminds me that, no matter how bad things get at work, you can always find a spare second to put a smirk on your face… 😉 So I thought I could share a simple mashup of pictures I had collected regarding the (in)famous… [Read more]

I’ve been quite busy lately: my EMBA graduation at MIB has gone well, and finally I was supposed to get some time to R&R… Unfortunately though, it seems the relax part in particular will have to wait. 🙁 Nonetheless, I had the opportunity to get to know some very cool guys and they’ve been kind… [Read more]

Some weeks have passed since the previous post on the subject, so I thought I could very well cut the slacking and get on with some talk about frameworks and platforms, as promised… Frameworks, as per Wikipedia definition, are “abstractions in which software providing generic functionality can be selectively changed by additional user-written code, thus… [Read more]

Koroush Ghazi is an expert PC user with extensive knowledge about OS/System customization and performance enhancement of applications running in the Windows ecosystem. On his website TweakGuides.com he shares some thoughts about the newest edition of Microsoft’s OS (8.1), and he’s not very kind about it. On the other hand, I cannot but agree with… [Read more]

Published on: September 1, 2013

The Saints Row series has been around since 2006, and right from the beginning has been praised by both public and critics for its free-roaming, destruction-dishing, over the top gameplay.
