Looking for games that feel like a summer adventure
  • Yeah I got that vibe but I wanted to include all the accessibility stuff because 1) it's awesome and 2) it can be used as a custom difficulty slider, which fits into the "I don't want to work hard on this" on a very personalised level. Either enable something, everything, or nothing at all. Your choice!

  • To Fix CrowdStrike Blue Screen of Death Simply Reboot 15 Straight Times, Microsoft Says
  • “We have received feedback from customers that several reboots (as many as 15 have been reported) may be required, but overall feedback is that reboots are an effective troubleshooting step at this stage."

    A lot of liberties taken with that headline.

  • Much appreciated. Now I have access to the quote:

    “We have received feedback from customers that several reboots (as many as 15 have been reported) may be required, but overall feedback is that reboots are an effective troubleshooting step at this stage."

    So fuck the headline, the real message is: yes, rebooting is an effective troubleshooting step at the moment.

    I don't know the exact timing of that message in the timeline of the incident, so it could be early "please restart and see if issue persists" or late "something was updated, rebooting will probably help", I don't know.

  • To Fix CrowdStrike Blue Screen of Death Simply Reboot 15 Straight Times, Microsoft Says
  • Can't read the rest of the article because paywall but apparently users have chimed in saying rebooting 15 times worked for them. Whether they were serious or not remains a question. I can also imagine it was a time-related thing and after 15 reboots enough time has passed for it to be fixed so the user thought 15 times was the magic number.

    Regardless, it's been a shit show.

  • Looking for games that feel like a summer adventure
  • Tchia just oozes summer vibes, and is inspired by the culture of New Caledonia. No failing, tons of extra accessibility options, skip gameplay segments if you feel like it, autoplay QTA's, and so on.

    Personally I like a little bit of a challenge even in my cozy games, but Tchia has so much character that I didn't mind.

  • Star Citizen is free this week, if you'd like to try it
  • Ah yes, let's enable the whales even more in throwing away money to fuel their addiction! I feel like this is something for the EU to look at, after loot boxes and other gacha mechanics. In my country they tried to ban them but failed.

  • Former Bungie, Pokémon Lawyer Explains How They Caught Leakers
  • The parent literally asked whether their kid was in trouble. Wouldn't it be disingenuous to not answer truthfully (at the caveat that it was actually the truth)?

    I saw it more as a way to resolve it peacefully without getting to the stuff nobody likes

  • Former Bungie, Pokémon Lawyer Explains How They Caught Leakers
  • ‘So you’re saying he hacked your game.’ And I hear in the background: ‘I didn’t hack anything!’ I start describing it more technically. She says, ‘Is this a problem?’ I say, ‘Hacking software, that’s a federal crime, but I don’t want that to be the conversation. Why don’t we make it a conversation about the good and bad things he can do with a computer?’

    To the people saying he threatened a kid, I think he did the exact opposite? He made them aware that technically it's a crime, to convey the severity, but also said he doesn't want that to be the conversation he's having with the parents.

    To me that sounds like he didn't want to threaten with legal action, but the parents did need to be aware that it was a crime, technically speaking.

  • New app releases for Apple Vision Pro have fallen dramatically since launch
  • Until a headset is as unobtrusive as a pair of eyeglasses it will not see mass appeal,

    You mean like Google Glass? I don't think that went anywhere either.

    It would not be the first time they put out a massively expensive and wholly useless product decades ahead of its need.

    Do you have any examples? Massively expensive is always the case, but I can't think of a product that Apple launched that was decades ahead of its need.

  • YouTube offers virtual trophies so you can feel bad about quitting premium

    I started a free trial and cancelled it immediately to have no ads while on holiday. Didn't realize they are offering some illusion of achievements as a "reward" for your attention, doubling as a FOMO weapon for when you want to quit.
