Update: Raspberry Pi-Compatible Development Board Cancelled

Osgeld Re:I have a RPi (165 comments)

arduino and pi are really two different things, one is a sbc the other is more like glue to interface a computer to the physical world, course arduino team is trying everything and using everyone to make a sbc muddling the waters, but the core arduino is still just a convenient interface platform that may handle simple tasks stand alone

Crytek USA Collapses, Sells Game IP To Other Developers

Osgeld Re:schadenfreude (121 comments)

to your point I got crysis 3 free with a video card, at first it seemed that it was going to be a worth while shooter. I dont generally play shooters so its got to be a good one for me to get into, well it didnt take me very long to figure out I could just camp behind a box and for the most part all the baddies would walk right up to me after I made a stink.

I probably played half that game sitting behind a box camping, boring as hell, haven't bothered to finish it
