  1. Football Thread 2017/18

    Fuck sake... of all the teams in Europe and the two English teams get each other. It's be 13-12 on aggregate though.
  2. I don't think any of mine have made it so far
  3. I tried to get my son to use the various bits that are out there and he didn't find them fun. Yet the idea of doing things in Labo has him genuinely excited. The issue with the current solutions is they don't appeal to him, as there isn't any instant feedback, which looking at the Labo solution, this will give him. He has ADHD so the idea of instant feedback will go a long way to keeping his concentration. Even with the Raspberry Pi, he struggled to get to grips with it, because he found the leap from first looking at it, to actually getting something working to be too big. Swift Playgrounds held attention a little better, but because we then needed to get specialist equipment to expand beyond the screen it soon got put to the side for too long. Labo has out of the box projects that you can see clearly how they work, plus you then get the Garage stuff, where you can build on the knowledge of using and building the existing projects and do your own. Rather than throwing at you like... You understand that 2x2 = 4, therefore solve Schrodinger's Equation. Labo looks to present it in a way that goes... build this fun thing step by step. Ok, see how this does that, why don't you try it in here. See how that works, well then go ahead and expand on it a little and see what happens. See how that joycon does this thing...what happens if you put it in this. It looks to remove a lot of the frustrations a child may have, by 'dumbing it down' to the most basic principles. By understanding those, they can then start that journey of the more complex learning. Because it is fun, it allows them to want to do more with it. It unlocks a level of creativity that simply working on a screen cannot.

    Doesn't matter who we get... it'll be fun.
  5. Fuck it... I'll bite. Or it gives kids an entry point to an otherwise impenetrable medium to learn. Show them the basics or coding principles and have fun with it (which allows concepts to stick better in their minds). This then leads to an interest and a better understanding before moving on to other languages as they get older. Steven Hawking didn't understand all he understood without learning 1+1 at an early age.
  6. Fucking hell... this really puts to bed the "£60 for a bit of cardboard" argument. The more they show, the more this seems value for money. That coin operated sweet dispenser for one is bloody impressive. This has the potential to teach kids how to code in super fun ways.

    Not whilst the game still has 10 minutes left and when it IS United and it would have been like them to still get through. Yes it's hilarious now, but never while there is still time on the clock. Hate the word of the use 'Scum' for another football club...save that for those that really deserve it (eg: that fucking rag) What was funniest though was BT Sport acting like someone had just died. They were practically mourning.
  8. Jim Sterling has weighed in on the situation too. He adds a montage of real news clips to show the horrible stuff we are exposed to through the news every single day.

    Don't be that guy dude.

    Well it's Mahjong Solitaire rather than Mahjong, but I like both. Although, the more I looked into it, the more it seemed to lack just being a basic Mahjong Solitaire game and looks to have more 'extras' to it.

    Fuck you! Next year will be our year to change that lightbulb!

    Someone my age has a son that is playing in the top flight of English football. Great, I was feeling miserable today as it was.

    For fuck sake... was tempted by Enchanted Mahjong Match. Then saw it was just an excuse to unlock drawings of scantily clad women.
  15. Crappy User Interfaces

    That is an awful UI because you cannot understand with ease where you should go to do what. It is cluttered and ugly too with way too many different aspects fighting for your attention. Going from text menu items to icons in the same panel is really poor, then changing again to panels for something else and then what appears to be yet another panel for online lobbies and alerts which still do not fit with any of the other design principles. Yes be creative with the designs and make it stand out and fit your games overall style, but that GT5 UI is an abomination because it fails to follow any kind of UX principles at all.
