I’ve been working to build a large collection of DS and 3DS games that I still enjoy to this day on the original hardware.

As a side rant, the 3DS/2DS really is a great console. It has a huge catelog of affordable games that can be purchased used from eBay and it doesn’t have the requirement to be online like the switch does. I took my switch off grid a while ago and was mega disappointed to find I couldn’t play a single game without “updates” because this wasn’t my “primary console” (a concept I didn’t realize existed or mattered).

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

This is where my mom pops in my room at 11pm and is like “why are you listening to Connie Francis and looking so sad?”

Take care of yourself and feel better soon. Remember to try to keep drinking fluids and specifically ones with electrolytes. When you’re blasting out ass juice, you’re losing a lot of salts that you need.

I want you to know, I saved this comment and refer back to it occasionally for a good chuckle. Thanks for that.

They basically did the same thing several decades ago with Kindles and whispernet. It’s not really that crazy.

You’re right. They care about our privacy and would never do anything to sully that trust. Certainly not through a partnership with an electronics manufacturer that pays them to do it…

I feel like there’s a good chance he loves his friend and that’s why he built it. I also think there’s a good chance some part of that castle will intentionally kill his friend while he laughs maniacally.

No Texans call it a “warm water port”. Definitely a port, but the warm water part of this is mega strange.

I can get basically anything I want at cheaper prices than locally available by the next day. I can get an increasing amount of things delivered to me same day as well which is pretty nice. The return policy is also a big part of it. There’s basically no fuss or questions asked for anything you want a refund on. You don’t even have to put it in a box, you can just drop it off at the UPS store.

They’re evil, but it’s pretty great from a user perspective.

It’s super frustrating that even paying for the NFLs super expensive service isn’t enough to watch your team’s games. It’s almost like they want people to pirate.

I enable read receipts on my phone for this very reason. I know that as soon as I click it to read it, they will know and I will need to reply. If I’m not in a good head space (or just busy), then I defer. It keeps me accountable and makes sure I don’t ghost those I care about (accidentally of course).

I switched to using startpage.com recently based on a comment I read on Lemmy and I've been generally pretty pleased with the results. Just one more google service I can stop relying on.

I’m not sure the YouTube heads really thought this through. I’m doing the exact same thing. I got a Plex setup and I’ve been watching more and more content on that instead of YouTube. I honestly don’t even miss it. When I eventually go back and try to watch something on a non-ad block device (Apple TV), it further underscores how shitty the service is getting. Longer and longer ads and it seems like they are slowly getting louder than the content.

The slow erosion of my enjoyment of YouTube inspired me to get Plex set up and start rewatching some classic shows I love. It’s been a great experience. No ads, no wait times, just entertainment.

Yes. They are involved in a ton of industries, legal and illegal. For example, if you have eaten an avacado recently, there’s an excellent chance it’s a conflict avacado with money being paid to the cartel by farmers for “protection”.

“It’s not only avocados. Mexican organised crime has long mutated away from ‘just’ drugs trafficking,” he said. “Today, the model is this: you control a given territory, and within in it you exploit whichever commodity is locally available. That includes avocados, but also limes, papayas, strawberries, illegal logging and mining, to name but a few.”

The scary thing is the only reason he was safe and didn’t get swatted is because he already had armed guards protecting him.

I played a few rounds a day or two ago and thought it was a good time. It didn’t quite feel like tribes because the skiing and other things were different, but definitely worth a try.

It’s minor but I can definitely tell. The lettering on the belt is the easiest way to tell IMO. I also am not sure it’s better.

Overpriced for what they are? Agreed. Weird elitism from some of the user base? Absolutely.

You sound almost as zealous when you say:

tried out Mac os and ios every major update, and found it to be entirely unenjoyable

I get that it’s not for you which is fine, but you tried every release of MacOS and iOS and hated them all? Okay bud.

I also think they are fucking with the sound levels in the same way TV did prior to the FTC ruling. The commercials are awfully loud compared to the content.

Not every project’s goal is to make money. I’d argue that spending time learning now to remake a game that you personally love is not a waste of time. You get the thing you wanted (a remaster) and you’ve honed a skill.
