You deleted your entire Time Machine backup, and have no other backup? Then you are out of luck...you could try disk recovery software like DiskWarrior.

BTW, in the future, I recommend a hybrid backup approach: Time Machine coupled with a clone using something like SuperDuper. Do the clone once a month, or before any major install. Then you can quickly get back to a working state if something bad happens.

And bonus points if you have an off-site backup plan as well. For example, I leave an external drive at my parent’s that I backup to once a year. A better option would be to use a service like BackBlaze that continuously does an online backup. That way if your home bursts into flames, you’re covered.

Narrative, because at this point in my gaming life, in terms of “action” I’ve experienced it all. But a good narrative can still surprise me.

And there’s so much room to grow in gaming narrative design. Most are not great or even good.

With just 16" ... I dont see the point in cramming in 4k pixels, I guess some people use their laptops with magnifying glasses? •shrug•

The idea is that you would use the pixels to do proper, non-scaled pixel doubling, not do this awkward scaling where everything is oh-so-slightly blurry. Today you have to make a choice between 2x and bad screen real estate, or blur and good screen real estate. The new laptops are slightly better with the higher PPI but there’s still scaling going on.

While we’re talking about screens, also am waiting patiently for 120 hz to make its way to something that isn’t an iPad.

Edit: Waddayaknow, I already had five of his books on my Goodreads list, including the mentioned above. That means he must be good. :P

I may have mentioned him here before, back when SOMA came out.

In the past, Aspyr has sent me MAS keys. I just sent them my original receipts.
