  • My dog will listen but my cat starts eating faster.

  • Hipster Cat
  • This is a meme format I have not seen in a long time.

  • Rule
  • This is not true. The interior of a car gets extremely hot. This is good for the dog however and will give them strong bones.

  • What the heck is a god dang cloud?
  • That's my data, I don't know you!

  • Hidetaka Miyazaki 'knows for a fact' other FromSoftware devs want a Bloodborne PC port: 'If I say I want one, I'll get in trouble, but it's nothing I'm opposed to'
  • It means he wants one but it's in poor taste to join in with the fan outcry when it's not up to him, it's up to Sony.

  • What.
  • It drives me crazy people insist they are sending a constant audio stream somewhere for nefarious purposes without any evidence. From a networking perspective this is knowable information.

  • Rude, really.
  • I'm happy that we live in a world where therapy and seeking mental help has been mostly de-stigmatized.

    That being said there is definitely something horribly toxic about people diagnosing each over social media. "You know that thing that you struggle with? It's not a personal failing; It's a disorder with a name, a treatment plan, and a community of weirdos to teach you a bunch of advanced psychology terms to describe your every single thought."

  • Customer service
  • LG TV's serve ads in notifications via the same domain that distributes new firmware. I got so sick of it that I blocked my TV from being able to reach the internet but it's still on the network so I can still use wake on LAN to turn it on/off.

  • Elden Ring's developers know most players use guides, but still try to cater to those who go in blind: 'If they can't do it, then there's some room for improvement on our behalf'
  • FromSoft... how the fuck am I supposed to know that I'm supposed to go to a single random point of grace and pick a dialogue option to talk to a doll... not once... but MULTIPLE TIMES in a row while nothing happens before the quest finally progresses.

    Seriously it's the bizarrely obscure stuff like this, or expecting that after every single boss I'll just randomly wander the entire world and talk to everyone just in case they moved or have something new to say. Drives me up the wall. I like that FromSoft is okay with you missing content so they shut up and get out of the way but some of these quests are cryptic as hell.

  • das bagel
  • Bagel bread is really good. Like a big round soft pretzel.

  • Oh it's definitely a reflection of the makeup of the industry too. No disagreement there.

  • What's the dumbest blockbuster movie you have seen that somehow received high praise?
  • 10 Cloverfield Lane is definitely an overall better film. Man I should watch that one again.

    Also I just remembered that The Cloverfield Paradox exists which I had completely forgotten about. That one was a total mess which is a bummer because the overall premise is in my wheelhouse and I love me some good space horror. I'll just watch Event Horizon instead.

  • I think you're spot on.

    Part of the reason I think it's a little easier to render women is that they typically have smoother less textured skin than men (video game women look like they are wearing makeup even if it makes no sense), and we're only just now getting the graphical fidelity to render realistic looking facial hair or fine stubble in realtime.

    Not that long ago making stubble on a male character usually just involved putting an irregular brown shadow on their cheeks which can be pretty indistinguishable from dirt.

  • For most 3d games you spend 99% of the time looking at the backside of the character anyway. Lady butts are just better to look at generally.

    Additionally in most character creation it seems easier to get a decent looking female character than a decent looking male character. I'm not entirely sure why but most male characters in games look like blocky fuzzy potatoes. When you start getting weird with fashion choices on top of that it just looks like a potato dressed like a goofball. With female characters you can go nuts with crazy hair colors, piercings, and wild fashion choices and it looks more deliberate somehow.

  • Trump Turns Bitcoin Into Test of Patriotism
  • They still are.

    Bitcoin mining may be our last line of defense against a CBDC [Central Bank Digital Currency],” Trump said in a Truth Social post Tuesday

    Don't use the imaginary digital currency made by the deep state. Use this specific digital currency that I have a huge financial interest in!

  • PlayStation architect Mark Cerny discusses the evolving console, how PS5's design choices impact PC gaming
  • The adaptive triggers are great. I've assumed that support for them on PC is basically non-existent, does anyone know if that is true? I figured I'd be lucky if it worked on the handful of PS5 games that have come to PC.
