Tomb Raider Anniversary was dirt-cheap on Steam so I bought it. As a remake it feels a whole lot smoother to play compared to the 1996 original, no tank controls. I also installed ReShade and a couple of texture upscale mods to make it more pleasant-looking, with add-on enhanced ReShade I could also use ray-traced global illumination.

I played BattleBit Remastered for the first time since August and I really need to hone my skills.

I also several demos on Steam, News Tower really got me hooked with its gameplay. The full game should release on Early Access in a couple days, might as well buy it.

The group isn't certainly an "embracer", this is disappointing.

Well, the Ubisoft exec needs to get used to people pirating games if they cannot be owned.

Somebody called Skibidi toilet "the Generation Alpha's first cultural contribution".

I am thinking the exactly same, the logos are so different in form and color. Take-Two is just trying to act high and mighty.

This should be done worldwide and there should be big public health campaigns about the health problems COVID causes.

When some people have argued that there is no use for EU, I have used its handling of technology giants as a counter-argument.

Another thing I point out is "look no further than the bottom of your phone" to bring up how EU forced phone manufacturers to use USB-C.

As real as it gets, coming from Rockstar's official YouTube channel.

If the WHO had acknowledged from the start that COVID was airborne, it wouldn’t have been the mess we are currently in. Masking would be more prevalent and these indoor air quality measures could have been implemented faster. Health authorities could also have given more better advice, something other than “wash your hands”.

What also bugs me that even though indoor air quality has been extensively researched here (this study as part of the E3 Pandemic Response project), this knowledge doesn’t properly transfer into political decision-making. Many health authorities have given advice like “wash your hands”, “wear a mask if you want to”, but it’s mostly anchored to the dreaded droplet dogma. The media has the talking heads from the THL (The Institute of Health and Welfare, “our CDC”) spouting their COVID minimizer propaganda that is disconnected from reality, and that has lead to downright disinformation being spread. But as COVID cases have been rising here, so has the sense that the health authorities haven’t done their job properly, and the society is finally waking up from the manufactured illusion of COVID being somehow “over”.

We are certainly living in interesting times.

And even if vaccines reduce the risk of long COVID, the risk is still there. 1 in 10 COVID cases leads to long COVID. It's about layers of protection against COVID, one of which is vaccines. The others are masks/respirators, good indoor air quality, testing, UVC lights, staying home if one is sick and so on.

I got the Sands of Time on my GameCube somewhere around 2004. One of my favorite games, I have finished it at least 3 times. A really linear experience but brilliantly crafted, a classic.

This soap opera just got another twist! It’s like clockwork, considering how Microsoft has invested before in OpenAI and Bing uses their technology.
