I can't really distinguish them in my head.

When Patrick left I thought the quality may go down but Dan has been a adequate substitute. I guess the best run to date was when Ryan and Patrick were both still on.

I think it depends on what you do. For example, computer graphics involved a ton of linear algebra and matrix theory and such and machine learning requires a lot of upper-level statistics knowledge. I imagine if you were working on a physics engine you need a good deal of vector calculus and mechanics experience.

At some point, to be considered a "real programmer" or whatever, you will need to know some pretty basic linear algebra, calculus, and discrete math for sure.

Uncharted was really cool. Crazy how games that seem relatively bug-free can be completely broken by these speedrunners.

I love Patrick, but I hate Kotaku.

3 is definitely the most frustrating/worst controlling MGS game so it ought to be interesting.

You will be missed.

I kind of just defaulted to gamepad on this one because playing MGS with a keyboard just sounded wrong. Guess I'll have to give it a go.

I don't know if Hearthstone counts because it was in a pretty complete beta since August, but it's my GOTY right now.
