Blindfolded speed runs of Mario 64 are insane. Like I’m already amazed by speedrunners in general, but my brain can barely process this.
It's nowhere near my most popular project, but I love the ~150 people who used https://QuickReviews.app last month 🙌
These visionOS 1.1 release notes are some grade A early platform shit, and I'm here for it. Just sorting out the many bugs in a brand new OS, hopefully getting things in order for a killer 2.0 later this year 🤞
Woof, not happy about this. https://flipboard.social/@TechDesk/112039308154531421
It is interesting that this is something that could be controlled in software … all this time … and won’t come to the M1 or M2 machines. I wonder what discussions happened to get this concession. Did the dings in reviews matter? Product returns? Qualtrics surveys? https://mastodon.online/@9to5Mac/112038734458173912
The replies to this very off-the-cuff, chill Oppenheimer review are absolutely unhinged.
Dune Part 2 opens at $81.5M domestic, the biggest opening since Barbie last year. Pretty damn impressive for a 2.5 hour sci fi flick with no superheroes.
My hot take: movies on the Vision Pro are an unbelievable way to watch movies on your own at home, but they’re not at all a replacement for a good theater experience.
Me lining up the absolutely perfect social media post.
I know people like to hate on IGN, but the IGN video comment section is where the real insanity lies.
As is so often the case, the top comment is someone sharing the numeric score IGN gave the thing, followed by many people thanking them for their service.
This one had the bonus of someone asking if they could add more color why a 10 was given…just watch the video 😂

Dune: Part Two (2024)
Holy spices that was incredible.
Game #3 beat this year! Goal is 10 in 2024.
After spending a ton of time beating Tears of the Kingdom, Sayonara Wild Hearts felt almost like cheating, as you can beat it in less than 2 hours.
I didn’t love the first half of the game, but at a certain point it really turns things up a notch and I loved the second half.
My two cents is that the industry is killing itself by chasing games-as-a-service and ballooning every AAA game into The Biggest Game of All Time.
Ok, there is a positive. Ferrari and Haas don’t seem to suck the life of the tyres.
@matt just found out about this one on AVP, you may find interesting.. https://techcrunch.com/2024/02/27/splitscreen-brings-a-multi-monitor-setup-to-apples-vision-pro/
Movie #1: Dream Scenario
This is a thread I’ve done 2 times before, sharing short reviews of every movie I watch in a year. My goal is to watch about 100 movies this year.
