This is just amazing. I played a little with the demo for the Unreal engine and I was impressed. The controls seem like they need some work, but overall it's simply amazing.
I'm not sure what to make of it either. I'm waiting for more compelling projects.
I like this! Used to play Street Fighter in my university years on a rented SNES.
Still not convinced. Maybe I'm too stubborn or stupid, but I really don't like hand-writing JSON settings. There are tools that do this better and less error prone due to the human factor, as far as I'm concerned.
The author caught my attention with its approach to OO in JS.
He's highly regarded, but he is a bit wrong about closures, in JS at least.
They require two key characteristics: 1) an outer wrapping function being invoked, to create the enclosing scope 2) the return value of the wrapping function must include reference to at least one inner function that then has closure over the private inner scope of the wrapper.
A closure is already formed when an inner function uses variables declared in the outer function scope. Returning the inner function is the common use of a closure, not the definition of a closure in JS.
That's a confusion many developers perpetuate which is part why it may seem like a difficult topic, even though closures are so simple to understand.
To note the recent drama involving Joyent and StrongLoop. It's somehow hurting the nodejs momentum.
He got it wrong. The password field is not a lie.
