I've also heard "Latine" used, how is that one doing in hispanic culture? I'm hispanic myself, but have lived mostly separate from the culture, so I'm unfamiliar if the terms get used or not.

The theme of "we want more seasons for the hit TV show"

It's too dangerous to use outside software. They would need to hire a team to develop an in-house video solution... and it crashed again.

If you've played the Momodora games it feels like those. And if you haven't, I also recommend them.

@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

momodora 1+2 are short freeware games on itch.io
momodora 3 is on steam and itch.io
https://rdein.itch.io/

momodora 4 is on steam and gog, and is the one most people talk about for being excellent
https://www.gog.com/en/game/momodora_reverie_under_the_moonlight

and the 5th and final game comes out early next year, unsure where else its coming out

The really low number of skills and how long they each took to perform on top of how beefy most enemies were also did not help.

@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

I agree, I hope the team learned a lot from making this game, so the next time they try to make an rpg, they can make something much better.

I feel like having your own instance is a solid first step before adding any kind of integration so they have a controlled feed of content to work with.

I only just migrated from backloggery this year too, so I know how you feel. It was a daunting prospect to manually move my 2000+ game list over, but I got it done. I'm actually updating both still, since it was so much work to setup backloggery in the first place and also serves as a nice backup in case something happens to one of the sites.

The way backloggd lets you write a daily journal entry in a calendar for every game you are playing is so good. Though I miss the homepage on backloggery, that one is still nicer.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Exactly. I love backloggery's focus on the games you are currently playing. The games you are playing and the last status you wrote are front and center when you log in and its exactly what I want to see. I can only hope backloggd someday copies it.

Nice, mine is 23. Been using it practically my whole life, though I don't post there anymore.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Yeah, what the heck Valorant. I'm not installing that.

Camelot

They made the Shining Force and Golden Sun games, both of which I loved, but these days they have been relegated to making the Mario Golf and Tennis games. Which are still pretty good quality, but I miss them making rpgs.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

I agree, they are just going to hit the wall again way too fast. If the limit is 256 or 2^8, they should increase it to 65536 or 2^16. Now that's a limit that feels safer to leave at for many year to come.

Though the amount of possible permutations combined with epigenetic triggers you've activated makes it practically impossible to guess which combination you have.

That sounds like a lot of work. Some high dose radiation will get the job done much faster.

Article says it only moved to living trees and that its a symbiotic relationship. Which to my understanding of trees, they already do this with other fungi, and this one is just tagging along as well.

The last of us this is not, not even close.

Now they can submit classified documents right into the engine code. How efficient.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

They could not even get the local suns to show at launch. FSR 3 is probably way down the list of other issues to fix first.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

That my total playtime is still only 10 months. I could have sworn I had spent over a year by now.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Yeah, until it fully launches to everyone, it won't be a viable alternative to anything.

And the picture they used is not just white background, but the icons and edit text are blue and text is black. Where is the grey? I call false advertisement.

Diablo 3 still works, I don't see a reason for this one to get bombed like Overwatch 2 did. If you bought it, its your own fault. I'm not actually keeping up with D4, did they screw up something since its launch?

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

I meant Diablo 4 seems to be exactly what they advertised, at least for now. But I will not be surprised when they ruin it in a later update chasing that dollar, considering their other games.

The other examples you list were perfectly justified reasons to be upset. As they removed perfectly functional old games with OW and WC3 and everything about the D3 real money auction house at launch was messed up.

I had a heck of a time trying to get It Takes Two to work on my machine. Apparently every game that launches the EA App from Steam is broken now and needs a custom fix using ProtonTricks.

After a while of searching, I found this guide and it was a lifesaver.
https://steamdeckhq.com/tips-and-guides/fixing-ea-play-blank-screen-for-ea-games-on-steam/

These are sadly the kind of issues that scare people away from Linux gaming. The stuff that works, works great. But when something is not supported, it can be a real pain to find a fix.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Is that so? I last tried a few weeks ago. That's good that they fixed this long standing issue.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

I remember in Paper Mario: TTYD one of the late game tattle entries on a X-naut enemy clarifies that its pronounced "cross"-nauts. This game had me mispronouncing the villain team's name the entire time until the end.

I enjoy listening to these podcasts more for their entertainment value than just trying to get the best information.

Podquisition - The hosts are very entertaining as they go over the games they've played as well as news in the industry. Laura also does a great job at reporting news leaks.

What's Good Games - Industry veterans who run a little too high energy go over gaming news as well as games they've played and often get hands-on impressions for upcoming titles.

The Inverted Castle - Fun retrospectives on Metroidvania games of old.

Square Roots - A Let's Play on classic RPGs that goes into great detail on each game across multiple episodes featuring the hosts thoughts and opinions on the games as they play through each section together.

I sometimes browse a few more of my niche subs, but I swore off posting and commenting.

It's cool to see the strategies other animals use to live longer. Whales and naked mole rats have fantastic DNA repair mechanisms, while elephants have multiple copies of a gene that protects them from cancer.

I can see this becoming a part of gene therapy when that becomes a regular thing.

Won't light based wi-fi have problems penetrating walls? I did not see that point brought up in the article.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Gotta be a big room for the that, otherwise just wire everything. Unless they want a clean aesthetic in their business, I guess.

Millennial here. I remember doing this in elementary school in the 90s. I moved in 3rd grade from a place that didn't do it, so it was super weird to me coming in as an outsider.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

That's something I want to do, but I'm afraid of missing something while backing up up my files and losing it in the OS wipe. It's a lousy excuse, I know, but it still stops me. Mostly since I play a lot of games and don't want to lose any save files tucked away somewhere unexpected.

That stuff should all be in C:/Users, but what if its not. And would have to go to each of my installed pieces of software to make sure any of my files are properly backed up which is so much work. Which only reveals another issue that I am terrible at keeping my stuff backed up.

LennethAegis ,

I know I don't want to dual boot permanently, but I had not thought about doing it for just the setup period.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

I thought that was a standard farming defense technique. Feed the local predators rotten sheep and they become disgusted at the sight of sheep.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

And probably easier on the farmer to not have to deal with rotten meat and fresh meat more likely to attract predators than rotten ones.

It's cool that purple is still just a combination of the red and blue ingredients.

That sounds interesting, is there a word for this level of activity? Something was mimics the idea of strangers interacting, like they do at a pub.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

None exist currently as Kbin itself is fairly new

Artemis is in development, which is based on the reddit app Apollo
https://kbin.social/m/ArtemisApp

and KBAM was just announced

I have a mastodon account as well as a kbin account and I regularly use both. From Kbin I follow not just kbin magazines, but several lemmy communities, mostly from lemmy.world and beehaw,org.

With mastodon, I follow people rather than instances, so it matters much less where everyone is and I don't particularly keep track of it.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Are you looking for conversations in your local server, cause those are generally not what I use Mastodon for, though they were a good start to find people that I should follow and curate my list of media for my own.

I'm a queer person in tech, so I joined tech.lgbt, which led to the people there regularly boosting content related to those topics that led me to find the people I wanted to follow. It rook a while to slowly build a sizable list of people, but I'm now sitting comfortably at just under 100 which plenty of content to wade through daily.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Do share, this would be a great boon for a lot of us while something similar get officially implemented.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Thanks for sharing, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Even with my other scripts turned off. Looking at your screenshot, is that Safari on IOS? Maybe an OS specific issue as I'm on Windows using Firefox. Not pressuring you to fix it, just letting you know it might not work on other platforms.

LennethAegis ,
@LennethAegis@kbin.social avatar

Ahh I am on Greasemonkey. Let me try Tampermonkey.

EDIT: It worked on Tampermonkey, thanks for the tip.
