So your favorite game or the game you're investigating prior to a purchase is suddenly dropping in user review score on Steam? Or maybe you didn't notice the drop because... this was the first time you were looking into the game and decided to skip this one because of the bad review score?
Steam is implementing a review bombing graph which enables the customer to see when exceptionally good or bad reviews have been posted.This as a response to the Pewdiepie controversy where Campo Santo issued an DMCA takedown notice against his Firewatch videos. Apparently a lot of Pewdiepie fans went mad and review bombed tons of bad scores on Steam, and by that lowered the overall score of Firewatch. With the new graph, customers can see if bad scores have been posted in a short period of time and make their own opinion on why this is. If a game gets bad (or even good) reviews in a short period of time, something can be fishy. In this way Steam adds a layer of "caution" for the customer to consider before pushing - or refraining from - that lovely purchase button.
Leaving for Copenhagen today at 5.35 pm. Sarah already left for Hong Kong at 1.30 pm and I have 4 hours to kill. Well I ventured outside the terminal building but guess what, it was almost empty. It is CRAZEEE HOT! No one with their sanity intact wants to be outside. Not even a sun lover like me. Sorry SF, I'm leaving you for a fall-like Europe...
The sun is going down over Cleveland Heights in Oakland this freakishly hot Friday. And tomorrow is forecast to be even hotter... We're spending the night here in our rental instead of our house in Sausalito as we had to leave the car back home. Now we simply just Uber our way to SFO tomorrow. Convenient!
As probably most of you already know, we are postponing the sale of our house. The estate is currently off market and the main reason for this is because we want to remodel the western part of the complex (seen to the left of the photo behind the porch) and seal it off completely from the eastern part. This will make it into two separate units. The project is loosely estimated to cost about $100,000 and will start in 2018.
When Sarah and I were walking the streets of San Francisco today we found this message sprayed on the ground. Yes, that's what this city is all about. It's about something of which Washington knows nothing.
Trevor got hold of a Threadripper and now we are benchmarking it. Jason is all over the place...
[FYI: The pic is the i9/X299 we are using as a reference. Trev is too wary to let me publish a pic of the 1950x/X399 as it's not released yet. Sissy!]
While Sarah's in LA, I'm taking the opportunity to visit Trevor in the Sunset. And while there I can't resist climbing Grandview Park to get some nice pictures. The street you see stretching all the way out to Ocean Beach is Moraga Street.
