Why would anyone play your games on hardware that's ten years behind? The few Nintendo games I still buy (like Tears of the Kingdom actually) I still play on emulator, because it's objectively better in every way. Fuck off.

You'll get called dramatic for saying that but Republicans are absolutely eyeing a form of trans genocide; removing access to treatment and creating as hostile and dangerous an environment possible for trans people. They want us to disappear.

We've had more than enough proof he's on team Putin, I personally don't need another.

I'm really worried he'd straight up help Russia tbh. Why wouldn't he?

Tetra ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

Won't be shocked if he tries. He's gotten away with lots of things he couldn't do, and if he's reelected the line is gonna get even blurrier. I don't know what could really happen and I'm not interested in finding out.

US weapons Trump would provide, most likely.

Video game actors speak out after union announces AI voice deal ( www.videogameschronicle.com )

According to SAG AFTRA, the deal will “enable Replica to engage SAG-AFTRA members under a fair, ethical agreement to safely create and license a digital replica of their voice. Licensed voices can be used in video game development and other interactive media projects from pre-production to final release.”...

I feel like the solution is pretty simple: if you want to AI copy someone's voice and put it in your project, you have to hire them and pay them as normal, and they have to give consent to let the AI use their likeness.

Otherwise it's theft.

Agreed.

Is there a forum for people who are lonely and sad but specifically not incel sickos?

like you know you’re a good person at heart but life circumstances and trauma and bullying and etc prevented you from learning the proper social skills to find companionship. not necessarily a forum to actually find friends (i find going into things with that intention feels fake and weird), but rather a forum to commiserate...

Tetra ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

I've given up personally. I don't know if it's life circumstances or me not being as good at heart as I'd hope, but I've resigned myself and I'm just trying to learn to cope with the loneliness. At some point it's fair to call it quits and start being realistic.

That's just me ranting though, this isn't directed at you, and I wish you the best of luck.

Idk what's the exact purpose of this meme but I really do see a lot of similarities between God creating the world and simulation theory. Obviously ST and religion are wildly different in their impact on society and how many people genuinely believe in them, but ST is pretty silly too.

It's just a "what if" scenario, one that's potentially possible but wouldn't change or explain anything if it was true. All you're doing is moving the existential problems up a layer and forgetting about it, it's the same as saying God made us: at the end of the day both the beings in charge of the simulation AND God have to come from somewhere, they live in a "real" universe, and you're not explaining that.

Why can't it be that we simply live in a real universe? That's the simplest answer, the one that requires the fewest assumptions. It doesn't have a convenient, satisfying reason as to why we're here, or how reality came to be, but it's easily the most plausible.

"there are squillions of simulated universe."

Huge assumption there lol, but I guess I see your point. If you assume simulations of this scope and quality are possible (again HUGE assumption), then your odds of being in one go up a lot, obviously.

Again though, at some point you have to hit actual, non simulated reality, and when everything seems to point towards that being the case for us, and absolutely nothing hints at a simulation, I don't see why we couldn't just be in that actual reality. I can't help but see that thought experiment as just an attempt to answer "the big question" in some way, even though in actuality it just moves it out of view.

It's Russell's teapot, impossible to disprove and theorically possible, but there's nothing backing it up besides fantastical assumptions. In that regard yeah, I think the comparison with God is warranted. The creators of our simulation, and especially the ones up above that are actually real would need such absurd levels of technology so far beyond our comprehension that it would be magic to us, and they would absolutely be our Gods.

I don't see much of a difference, it's kind of just a tech themed spin on it, with the same fallacies plaguing the whole concept, IMO. It's cool to think and write scifi about, but that's about it.

Not sure what part of the message you're responding to, what do you mean?

Leaker shares mounting Nintendo Switch Mini or Switch Pocket evidence, offers up release date and price predictions ( www.notebookcheck.net )

I think we all know that patents don’t usually mean anything and aren’t an indicator of a product actually coming to launch, but what do you all think of a potentially smaller, more portable Switch?

Tetra ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

So an even worse Switch? How about no.

Tetra ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

One of the downsides is that you'll be playing the Nintendo Switch.

Switch emulators are so good by now, the experience is nearly always better on PC. My Switch is one of the first models too but now that I don't play online Smash anymore, I really don't see what use I could have of a homebrewed console.

I don't think it matters what you call it. Gender dysphoria is a condition that hurts, and the cure is gender affirming care and acceptance.

As long as we agree on that idc what you define it as.

I don't have much of an opinion on people who believe they're a hive mind or a wolf or something. That seems to be your main issue, and imo it's a very different topic from whether or not gender dysphoria is mental illness. Like yeah they themselves are trying to put that in the same basket as gender identity, but it's an entirely different discussion.

I still use Reddit a bit (on desktop only), mostly to check on some niche communities that aren't really on the Fediverse yet, but Kbin has been very nice also. It's nice and chill, and overall a lot less fascist/bigot friendly, which is refreshing.

Nice Kingdom Come Deliverance profile pic btw

I've noticed that too, I just switch to Freetube when it happens.
Simply disgusting, but it's business as usual for Google.

It does play livestreams, yes.

Strange way to say it's just not good enough to get awards. I'm not "ghosted" by the Michelin guides every year, my cooking just isn't that good.

They could've just said "stop playing our games", it would've been shorter.

Bold of you to assume Switch players care about performance.

They're definitely gonna go after the wayback machine next, because what use is there in controlling social media and deleting what bothers them, if there's freely accessible records of it somewhere else?

The archive needs to be protected at all costs.

Looking for games with strong female leads for my daughter (even just to watch as I play). Came across this link, but they're a bit age-inappropriate. Any suggestions from the community? ( gameranx.com )

Edit: Daughter is only 5 so she’s unlikely to play much but she watches me and as long as it’s not too violent, it should be fine

Tetra OP ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

That does (usually) work yeah, but for example if I'm simply scrolling down I can't do that, since refreshing will bring me all the way back up and change what posts are even displayed.

Tetra OP ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

Yeah that does happen too, in fact it didn't work the first time when I tried posting this very thread.
I used to browse some unstable forums back in the day so I've made a habit of copying any long comment I make, just in case, but that's definitely annoying too.

I'm not giving up on Kbin either of course, but this one bug is definitely making it a challenge, and it's been a thing since I got here.

Tetra OP ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

Yeah I need to look into that, I just use Firefox's on desktop, but I don't have it on mobile; I'm assuming there's a way to link them together. It just hadn't really been an issue until now.

Tetra OP ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

The error page I get sent to just says "Error" but the tab's name is "Log in", personally. That's why I assume it's some kind of log in issue.

Tetra OP ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

That's exactly it, yup!
And those workarounds do work, they just make participating kind of a chore, when I have to keep refreshing all the Kbin tabs I have open.

Can you educate me on what the differences were with the Japanese version that made it push the limits?

Tetra ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

Guess I'm getting banned then, I will never disable my adblockers, the internet (and Youtube especially) is goddamn unusable without them.

Tetra ,
@Tetra@kbin.social avatar

If I have to start torrenting YouTube videos to avoid ads, I will. Glad Firefox is still going strong for now.

I'd say they're doing a great job at killing subscriptions indeed

I thought E3 died a couple years ago already?

I could unironically see this being a real reason why they don't care much about the blind community
