I’m just a weird, furry, pan guy (cis he/him). I also have a big, blue username. I tend to edit everything I write like a million times within the span of a couple minutes after posting, so if you see one thing and suddenly it changes, that was just a first draft. 😅

It's the thing that goes "boowoowooo." You know when it's all quiet on the bridge and you just hear that high pitched pinging sound? That's that bar right there with the lights. It is absolutely vital for the function of any Starfleet vessel.

Just how the f*CK did Nintendo developed tears of the kingdom?

There are so many things being tracked all the time in the game for puzzles and the power arm. Yet despites literally tracking sunshadows for some puzzle completion for example it runs almost smoothly with (in my 170h) no crashes. On a 6 yo portable console??...

Because they're not constantly tracking any of that stuff. It checks once at specific trigger points. If everything is satisfied for a thing to happen, the thing will happen.

Technically you can do so now. But you would need a metal 3D printer to build it (or make it out of plastic I guess). I remember reading something about a dude who bought a industrial 3D printer setup just so he could print out a Rolls Royce Phantom.

I have been seeing political commercials for at least 3 different bills/campaigns to write bills aimed at fixing housing issues recently; though they are all California specific. One of which uses the motto "the rent is too damn high."

I just download .MP3 or m4as of everything I add to my liked songs on Spotify. I pay for Spotify, but the offline functionality is bogus so I also keep regular copies of everything and don't rely on whatever dumbass propriety offline format Spotify uses because it never actually plays anything when offline that way.

I purposely went out and found every super adult and suggestive grunge song they covered with Kidz Bop because it's hilarious hearing little kids singing Nirvana and Bush songs

I kinda did last time I needed to download anything. Not sure if it's still working though. I used an app that would find and convert the songs out of a playlist from YouTube and other sources. But even at that time, it was a pain finding what I used; plenty of things claimed to do this but most of them were defunct and didn't function.

I only ever get these things when using auto fill or remote desktop now that the input is on the phone and sends everything you typed all at once.

Most of the time it's just the single checkbox one.

I started thinking about Archer's dog as the reason Riker is happy about that and realized Janeway has a dog too, but she left her's at home. Like a fool.

It's a reboot. They could definitely turn it into a AAA budget production. Maybe make it an open world GTA clone, like the Yakuza series; where 90% of the game is side activities that don't even involve driving a taxi.

Kolanaki ,
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

Hold up... Battle Royale in CRAZY TAXI? GaaS wouldn't be surprising, but that last bit gives me doubts. Then again... It's an arcade game. I suppose instead of a high score table, it could be an elimination thing... 🤔

Kolanaki ,
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

Watch it go from a fast-paced arcade action title to a GTA open world clone. Shit could end up being like the Yakuza series but focused on driving a cab crazily.

So you prefer playing as another gender? (quanticfoundry.com)

Well, as a guy, I've been asked multiple times why I systematically play games female characters in video games, to the point of skipping a game if I'm forced to pay a male one, with a few exceptions (I really liked Albus from Troubleshooters for example). Whenever there's romance in a game, I'll also take the F/F route. Yet, I...

Kolanaki ,
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

I really don't care. I'm fine playing genderless shapes (and if PacMan didn't have "man" in his name nobody would even know he was a he) if the game is fun. Even when finishing the first Metroid back when I was a kid and discovering Samus was a woman didn't really blow my mind like it did for so many others.

The only time I care is when it actually matters in the game. Such as Fallout 2 and being able to skip fighting the Slavers to rescue Vic but only as a woman, or older FPS games where the smaller frame of a female model came with a smaller hitbox, or even Demon's Souls where male and females have different armor sets so my gender changes with my build.

I liked how they show a young Picard in a photo at some point and he's even more bald than present Picard and it's like the opposite of most people who lose their hair as they age.

I wouldn't mind someone else just making a game like Disco Elysium with all the myriad of possibilities and angles and such. Disco being extremely well-written was mere icing on the cake compared to the agency it has for an RPG. It goes above and beyond what even great RPGs like Baldur's Gate (any of the 3) do.

Though I suppose you would need a great writer to actually think of all the different possibilities of any particular dialogue or scene... 🤔

On the subject of writers... Didn't one of the writers for Disco have actual books published? Anyone know what they are or if they are as good as the game?

Not having an N64 or a copy of that game stops me.

This and the other WWE games on N64 is why I went through so many controllers... A lot of them had you spinning the stick to get out of stuff and it would wear down the springs until the stick was worthlessly flaccid. 😩

I can kinda understand the feeling. My personal land line phone as a teen (cuz my bedroom had a phone line) was like the old 1800's style rotary phone where the mic was stationary and the hand unit was just a cup for your ear. It felt fancier.

That's actually a myth.

Are there any genuine benefits to AI?

I can see some minor benefits - I use it for the odd bit of mundane writing and some of the image creation stuff is interesting,, and I knew that a lot of people use it for coding etc - but mostly it seems to be about making more cash for corporations and stuffing the internet with bots and fake content. Am I missing something...

Kolanaki ,
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

Anything that requires tons of iteration can be done way faster with AI. Finding new chemical formulas for medicine, as an example. It takes a "throw everything at the wall and see what sticks" approach, but it's still more effective than a human.

Just gimme a button on every store page for Steam next to Purchase that says "Pirate."

What kind of a gift can you give your teacher out of respect, but that doesn’t get mistaken for romance?

A follow up from my older asklemmy post, saying goodbye to a teacher who helped me a lot through my stuff, was thinking maybe chocolate, but one of the dudes said that it’s not a very good idea, I was thinking maybe a perfume/cologne? What do you guys suggest? She is in probably in her early 20s if it helps, and I am in senior...

Just got this today not even knowing they removed Denovu from it. It's hella good. Definitely scratching my itch for more Soulslike stuff. It even takes inspiration from the whole gamet of Fromsoft games. Little bit of DS, BB, ER and Sekiro all blended together.

There is absolutely no pluralization that uses an apostrophe

Incorrect.

Apostrophes are used to denote plurals for lowercase letters. Like if I said "Missippi has three p's in it."

so keep that in mine.

I wouldn't trust it because so many people in the trans community tend to fly off the handle at any perceived slight against them. Can't even ask them questions without being accused of acting in bad faith. Especially if the list is created by user submissions, it seems like a really shitty social manipulation app.

Assuming it is kept in working order, you'd be able to do everything you can do with it now, with the assumption the online services stay up. If they go down, you would lose your non-physical games and the ability to play online.

Your progression and everything is saved on the unit itself, and the hardware used likely will last for a long, long time if kept properly.

Almost nothing other than games you've bought on the store and online functionality in games is tied to your Switch account. And in 20 years time, who knows if that service will still be online.

Kolanaki , (edited )
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

Not only it is unlikely that the hardware will last that long

Electronic hardware can last for a very long time unless it's mistreated. I still have a working Pong unit that's all original parts. Also an NES and SNES and the only thing wrong with those is the SNES turned yellow over time.

Ok yeah. You got me there. The joysticks absolutely suck. The console will probably still work, but your left and right sticks are gonna be forever moving in opposite directions
