Games I played while my wife was in labor

Rewind to July 4th, my wife’s due date. For medical reasons, she had to be induced that night, which began the labor process. From start to finish, labor was about 26 hours. One thing I learned over this time is that there is a lot of down time in labor, especially for the dad.

Destination Review: Florence

Florence is, most of all, a story about finding your passion and happiness. Florence is the name of the main character–the events are from her point of view. According to an interview with the creator, she’s a 25-year-old Chinese-Australian girl working a desk job. She wakes up every morning, gets on the train, works her job, then comes home and watches TV. She has a very set routine, until she hears cello music coming from an Indian musician named Krish and becomes enamored of him.

At the top of the screen, a hint at where to focus is displayed. I found the hints to be rather easy to follow, which saved me from frustration. But there’s a lot of depth here.

Game Dev Tycoon developer claims Google removed ‘over 77 percent’ of positive reviews

Greenheart says at one point they lost 400 reviews, then the next day lost 430 reviews, followed by drops of 655 and “500-plus,” respectively. That’s a staggering number of reviews, an the question here is whether or not they were legitimate. Greenheart says they are, and at this time, there is no reason to suspect otherwise given the response on Twitter and general positivity surrounding the game’s Android release.
