That entire sentence sounds like a title of a visual novel

Not to mention Lipton Ice Tea is rubbish. You can make your own for 1/10th of the price, and it’ll taste 10x better.

What's your favorite game that you will NEVER finish?

This question popped into my head when I was playing Void Stranger. I just got done with the game and will probably never play it again despite not finishing it. The game is genuinely amazing but it just gets so demanding as you progress through it. I ended up watching the second half of the game on YouTube....

I actually had a similar experience with Hollow Knight where I had to stop playing for a while and when I picked it back up I forgot where I was and where I’m going, so I had to start all over. It was really worth it imo, because the end sections of the game are insanely cool. But I can understand not wanting to repeat ~10-20 hours again.

The same devs went on to make Vintage Story and finding copper there can also be a real pain. It’s kind of wild to hear their Minecraft mod having the same issue.

If we’re counting 100%ing, then yeah, Godhome can suck it. Path of pain alone was pushing me to the edge.

Not surprising considering there’s little to no competition in that price range. Pretty much every not-bad PC headset is $1000+, and heavy hitters like Valve Index haven’t had a hardware refresh in years.

Yes we are, but it took a minute or two to be able to see the post.

I’m really going to miss his videos, but I’m glad he’s ending it on a happy note rather than dragging things on when he doesn’t want to. Godspeed, Tom.

The PlayStation 3 baby commercial was also something else. Playstation has had some real weird marketing moments.

Has anyone gotten a game or account ban using Linux with Lutris or Heroic Games Launcher?

I built a PC for the family yesterday, and I’m hoping to get away with going 100% Linux. What makes me a little nervous is that Epic Games, GOG, battle.net, EA store, etc don’t officially support Linux. If I try using Lutris, or Heroic Games Launcher, or something similar to use those platforms, is there a chance my account...

Not at all, I don’t think anyone has ever gotten banned for using alternate launchers on Linux. I’ve been using Heroic for ~2 years now with no issues.

The only time you can get banned is if you try playing a multiplayer game that has anti-cheat that doesn’t support Linux. Just make sure when playing a multiplayer game that Linux is supported.

Shoutout to my one friend that had no idea you were supposed to run from Asylum Demon and actually did beat it with the broken short sword

It’s similar to batocera in that it’s a minimalist UI front-end for emulators, but it’s a bit more modern and simpler to use. It can be used as an application (probably the recommended way), or installed as an operating system if you’re using something weak like a Raspberry Pi.

I’m not going to say using a different distro will fix all your problems but yeah, your experience is not normal. A lot of this is because Ubuntu is not highly recommended. It’s just popular, but there are a bunch of terrible decisions it makes that barely anybody recommends it.

Of course Ubuntu just threw out the old installer for debian files, and didn’t replace it yet. Wouldn’t want a user to just be able to easily install files!

Checks out. Ubuntu is also one of the only modern distros that doesn’t come with Flatpak, which is a massive store of applications that’s quite easy to use and has a huge store of applications.

May I recommend something like PopOS instead? It’s based on Ubuntu so everything from there will work on it, including .deb files. It’s basically Ubuntu but with way, WAY saner defaults and a better beginner experience. I think your experience will be a lot better on a nicer distro.

There was also one string of Tweets in which many seniors from the Overwatch crew blamed Kotick for sabotaging the franchise and ruining Overwatch 2 with terrible decisions from higher up getting in the way of development. I really felt that one since I used to be an OW fan.

Everyone knew something was off when the game director which was extremely passionate (Jeff Kaplan) just straight up left the team after OW2 was announced. Really sucks, but at least we got some context.

Why chromium is explained in the article (better support for many apps) but you can always change it to firefox, also detailed in the upgrade article.

I upgraded from 38 to 39 with no issues. It’s honestly not hard or dangerous, just copy paste a few lines then paste the last ones to prompt the upgrade. The only catch is that if you had KDE already you won’t need to remove some of the packages it tells you about. Don’t overthink it imo.

Try removing all of them one-by-one and ignore the ones that are trying to remove plasma.
