Court Rules the "Google" Trademark Isn't Generic

loufoque Re: Well, if you're going to push... (129 comments)

The Growing Illusion of Single Player Gaming

loufoque Re: Got Burned by Titanfall (272 comments)

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

Early Reviews of Destiny: Unfulfilled Potential

loufoque Re:And then watch all of them... (93 comments)

There is such a thing as professional reviewers? They're just an extension of the marketing department.
The only way to assess whether a game is good is to look at the reaction on social media. Then again, this has this limits, for the simple reason that a lot of people just have shit taste.

loufoque Re:Is there any point continuing GCC's development (99 comments)

While both GCC and Clang are buggy, I have found that some of the bugs of clang were more problematic than gcc's.
That's a good reason for gcc to go on living.
