  • Don't give them too much credit, they only did it because they saw the demographics shifting and possible profits. It will always come down to money. If the GOP takes power and turns full authoritarian and tells them they can't outwardly show support, see how quick they shut their mouths.

  • Roger Stone Caught on Tape Discussing Trump’s Plan to Challenge 2024 Election
  • Unfortunately, Roger Stone would probably get off on it.

  • $843 million lawsuit against Valve already has its own website: "The Steam Claim" accuses the biggest store in PC gaming of "overcharging" players
  • Sales of physical copies of games is where consoles truly shine. It's not as great as a few years ago (getting surplus steelbook games for like $10 sometimes), but you can still regularly pick up AAA games that are a handful of months old for $20 or sometimes less.

    Check sites like dekudeals and psprices (steamDB is great too for making sure you're not being over charged on Steam).

    It's just being a savvy consumer.

    But yeah, when it comes to Nintendo hardware, the only reason to have it imo is the first party games, and those will never go on sale so you might as well just pony up. You can do the voucher thing and save $10 on each if you get two games (dunno if that's still a thing).

  • [Solved-ish] Having issues launching games specifically from steam
  • Ah, bummer... Can't you just log in using X11 instead of Wayland for the session when you want to play? Assuming it's a Wayland issue...

  • What's the dumbest blockbuster movie you have seen that somehow received high praise?
  • Thanks, I've saved your comment and I'll add them to the list.

  • Emerging Psychedelic Mushroom Alternative More Toxic Than Fentanyl, New Research Suggests
  • Something inherently skeevy and untrustworthy about buying acid from someone so clearly and openly against the very idea of psychedelics.

    Bad vibes.

  • Hamas Wants Guarantees Ceasefire Will Actually Happen, While US Says Hamas Is Rejecting the Proposal
  • They said,

    Hamas are not good guys by any stretch

    and then you say,

    How the hell Hamas are the good guys [...]?

    Not only a straw man, but you're literally acting like they made the complete opposite argument. Bad faith, dude. Bad faith.

    Not even going to get into the whole, "they pushed Israel for so long that it finally snapped" thing. Just a complete historical revisionism.

    Do people actually buy this shit?

  • Drinking raw milk even after repeated health warnings about bird flu?
  • We're witnessing the end result of decades of baked-n American Exceptionalism and "rugged individualism": a bunch of selfish pricks literally willing to kill themselves and others out of some bizarre form of oppositional defiant disorder.

    This is the American Dream, folks.

  • Fatty liver disease is just self-induced Foie Gras
  • Hannibal Lector has entered the chat...

  • Cake days have an off-by-one error
  • Yeah, can we not?

  • What's the dumbest blockbuster movie you have seen that somehow received high praise?
  • I've only ever seen Short Cuts (loved it), the Player (liked it a lot), and McCabe and Mrs Miller (ehh....). How do you think I'd feel about his other films?

  • Massive explosion rocks SpaceX Texas facility, Starship engine in flames
  • No worries lol, explains my confusion of you bringing to Stalin lol...

  • Massive explosion rocks SpaceX Texas facility, Starship engine in flames
  • Did you reply to the wrong comment? Because my comment you replied to said nothing about Stalin or Zuckerberg or any of that shit. I literally have no idea what you're talking about.

  • Anon pirates a game
  • Try again next time, and look a little bit closer. They will do everything they can to make you think you need to accept both, but there's a reason there are two things you need to approve and why the wording is subtly different when asking approval of one vs the other.

    And yes I'm talking about console games as well.

  • [Solved-ish] Having issues launching games specifically from steam
  • For some reason I've been having issues too, but I started adding this to my launch options in the game properties in Steam and it seems to work for several games. Dunno if this is the same issue as you though, but maybe worth a shot:

    PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 %command%

    Also use Wayland.

  • Emerging Psychedelic Mushroom Alternative More Toxic Than Fentanyl, New Research Suggests
  • Nothing spiritual about it for me... My psychedelic exploration phase is largely behind me these days, but it was never about spirituality for me, and as someone who abhors magical thinking, I never once believed it was anything more than chemical reactions in my brain.

    Which is what I found far more fascinating... Particularly with LSD, how a dose weighed in micrograms that is expelled from you body completely, through your urine, within an hour or two, can set off a switch in your brain that will cause your to experience 8-12 hours of intense psychedelic visuals and mind fucks that truly cannot be expressed in words.

    It sucks that you never felt that curiosity about your own brain and what it is actually capable of.

  • Exclusive: US House panel finds Wall St 'colluded' to curb emissions
  • Next the GOP will be screaming to nationalize these publicly traded companies so the public has no say in how they're run.

    For one, nationalizing would have the opposite effect. It literally means that the company is administrated by the people of the nation, and therefore they reap the profits/rewards. It also means they have more control.

    Sure, an autocrat might try to use this to consolidate power, but the concept of nationalizing isn't inherently bad. It can be done correctly, and be a great boon for society.

    Which is why, second, the GOP would never do such a thing. Wrest control of private corporations from billionaire capitalists that fund their campaigns and hand it to the people? Lol are we talking about the same party?

  • Dwarf Fortress co-creator has been helping out with Streets of Fortuna, a sandbox RPG in a procedurally-generated city where you can be an art thief, a chef or a big ol' flirt
  • Really bad take. Take it down a notch.

    And this is coming from someone who didn't play the game until it was released on Steam due to the inaccessibility.

    Graphics aren't everything. DF is, by far, the deepest simulation game ever created. The complexity is unmatched. You should put some respect on their name.

  • What's the dumbest blockbuster movie you have seen that somehow received high praise?
  • I've recently come to terms with the fact that I guess I've just grown out of Star Wars. When you strip away all of the nostalgia, I don't think any of the originals (or prequels) hold up at all. And the newer ones have just been trash.

  • [No Spoilers-FFVII: Rebirth] No specific event to spoil, I just think Chadley (FFVII Remake & Rebirth) is a pompous little shit.

    No spoilers for me neither, since I'm still playing Rebirth... I just felt the urge to talk about how much this little prick gets on my nerves....

    Anyone else? Or is it just me?

    Having a blast with the game either way... But fuck Chadley.
