If at all possible you should never take your company public. It's not worth the loss of control.

Reading the source code for everything running on your machine and then never updating is the only way to be absolutely 100% sure.

Well yeah? Took them far too long to get on Steam, and they got totally eclipsed by Palworld and Helldivers 2.

I also played it for a bit and it's really not that fun.

Was it epic exclusive? I was able to download a standalone launcher and play it that way.

As a pirate, I understand the necessity of pretending that they don't like us. I am fine with it until it becomes a situation where they actually don't like us anymore.

A German state is ditching Windows and Microsoft Office for Linux and LibreOffice on the 30,000 PCs it uses for local government functions ( www.theregister.com )

Schleswig-Holstein, Germany's most northern state, is starting its switch from Microsoft Office to LibreOffice, and is planning to move from Windows to Linux on the 30,000 PCs it uses for local government functions....

Ironically, I prefer for LibreOffice to not follow my dark mode setting. I always want it to be light mode.

email is unusable without bowing to either google or microsoft

xmpp is far more niche than ever before thanks to the big players

http is highly grandfathered in ++ big tech is still working on the extinguish part, ever wonder why most websites are 30mb+ javascript programs? this is one of the reasons

just pre-emptively block threads.net or whatever other domain they use

I do use XMPP, but most programs that are available for it that also support OMEMO really suck, other than Conversations for mobile devices.

I am the Rust programmer, I will rewrite everything in Rust. ( youtu.be )

I am the Rust programmer, I will rewrite the world in Rust. I will rewrite the world in Rust because the world is unsafe. As I am the Rust programmer I will keep writing rust until the world is safe. After the world is safe, I will not rewrite it in Rust. Because I am the Rust programmer I will retire from programmer in Rust....

There are two kinds of programming languages. The languages that people bitch about, and the languages nobody uses.

If this isn't a sign of market difficulties, I'm not sure what would be.

This game is hardly the only one being discounted heavily and early on in it's life cycle, it's just the most egregious example that I'm aware of.

neo ,
@neo@lemmy.comfysnug.space avatar

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor 55% off right now (Steam)

Street Fighter 6 44% off right now (Fanatical)

Starfield 33% off right now (40%, microsoft store, Feb 8 2024)

Fairing a little bit better than the above:

Resident Evil 4 Remake 25% off right now (Steam)

Persona 3 Reload 15% off right now GameBillet

Baldur's Gate 3 10% off historically (10%, gog, Dec 21 2023)

These are just the ones I'm familiar with off the top of my head. Of them, only Baldur's Gate 3's discount levels are what I would call "healthy". 10% for Christmas and no discount since means it's doing well.

neo ,
@neo@lemmy.comfysnug.space avatar

every game on that list was released after Jan 1, 2023. If that is not "recent" then I have no idea what is.

neo ,
@neo@lemmy.comfysnug.space avatar

I literally googled "recent aaa titles" and picked the first 6~ off of the list. I don't hold any personal opinions of any of them except for Starfield, which I have seen my roommate play.

Regarding Starfield: it seemed to me that it was a 6/10 game.

Didn't DLC and MTX come about because consumers wouldn't accept a rise in sticker price for games?

I'm not saying you're wrong, either, you may very well have a point. I'm just having a hard time reconciling "We added DLC in order to make more money since we can't raise the sticker price" with "30% discounts are a reflection of how high the profit margins are for sellers"

neo ,
@neo@lemmy.comfysnug.space avatar

I didn't mean to be that vague. And you're right. I think part of the problem is that some studios have lost touch with what their customers want in even the broadest sense.

@neo@lemmy.comfysnug.space avatar

okay, i can accept that

thanks for taking the time to explain it to me

Totally valid.

For some Helldivers 2 players, the fascist role-play has gone too far ( www.polygon.com )

It took GantztheDemon 10 days to be able to play Helldivers 2 again. On Feb. 21, TikTok user AJGaming shared a video featuring Gantz killing them. The sequence went viral overnight, garnering 4.8 million views as of this writing. A subsection of the Helldivers 2 community, hung up on the politically charged satire theme of the...

Ironic, then, that you picked an instance that picks Defederation as it's first approach to problem solving.

Not that you can see this, as I'm posting from one of the instances harmed by reckless defederation.

I was never once contacted or given any chance to address whatever issue they had.

@neo@lemmy.comfysnug.space avatar

It's a decent packaging solution.

regarding the sandboxing, all the negatives are present with none of the benefits, wish they'd just rip that shit out

What is good SoulSeek etiquette?

I'm new to Soulseek. Got my Nicotine+ docker set up w/ VPN through gluetun. I'm good to go. Port forwarding is working correctly and I'm sharing a little over 100GB of flacs that I have ripped personally with EAC and a couple people have downloaded some of my stuff, which is really cool. I don't have privileges rn....

Personally I only ask that you "share-alike" aka make what you download from me available for others to download from you.

I think the amount of outrage a Steam Curator group has generated solely by pointing out that $game used $consultancy_service indicates that there is something deeper about the subject. No smoke without fire and all that.

You could have a main female character in Mass Effect but it never felt shoehorned in like a lot of crap these days. In fact I have never played Male!Shep.

If it's really so misguided why does it need this much attention?
