Just finished Lenna's Inception "perfect ending" after getting the bad ending last night. It was a pretty great game and was way above and beyond what I was expecting.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️

PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE

And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

It's time we stop putting the spotlight on game publishers and put it on development studios instead. Publishers are merely here to ease the distribution process and fund the development of games. Outside of that, they contribute very little.

Dear digital comic stores, DRM on your comics is pointless because this thing called screenshot exists. That is all.

So apparently free game promos with AMD GPUs only apply if you're a Windows user. You have to download an exe to claim them and support basically told me to buy a copy of Windows if I wanted the games when I contacted them about it.

Any #Android dev out there looking for a new (and probably easy) project?

I just found Nextcloud Cookbook (/com/android/quickstep) which lacks an Android counter-part. Even "View only" would be great (for the kitchen). All data is stored in files, one sub-dir per recipe, well structured JSON for data (plus image files if there are any with the recipe).

Who takes the challenge and writes a small viewer?

First episode of a super cool cartoon titled Hazbin Hotel created by Vivziepop and funded on Patreon came out today.

been on a bit of a PS4 kick lately, chewed through several games in my backlog. RE2, Trover Saves the Universe, Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Spider-Man, Okami. I plan to start FF15 next as soon as I watch the Kingsglaive prequel movie

Installed my Ryzen 9 3900X yesterday. Being lazy about updating my Kubuntu install from 18.04 to 19.04 appears to have worked in my favor as the computer still boots without complaint. I'll probably try to hold out for 19.10 and do a clean install.

Finally got around to beating Horizon Zero Dawn. I can see why the game got so much praise. Very good story, lots of attention to detail in bringing the different cultures to life.

My biggest gripe is it feels buggy and rough around the edges to play, kinda like a Bethesda game.

There was also a few arbitrary barriers that blocked me from going some places until the story sent me there but no explanation as to why the barrier was suddenly gone.

Overall very recommended.

had a mostly relaxing week long vacation for the 4th of July. Played several games and just chilled out. Now it's back to that work thing to make the monies.

my coworker may be hiring me to build him a personal system based on Threadripper

Finally tinkered with the Linux version of Psychonauts that it properly starts in full screen at the correct resolution and I can use my controller. Now if only I could force it to display controller prompts. If we're super lucky maybe they will remaster the original Psychonauts when Psychonauts 2 comes out so I have an excuse to replay it for a 5th time.

Started playing Tooth and Tail over Memorial Day weekend. Not sure if I'll ever get around to beating it. The game looks good and plays fine, I'm just not very good at it. After repeatedly failing a mission for an hour and not really understanding how I could do better I put it down and am not sure if I'll bother to pick it back up given the rest of my backlog.

Beat Figment last night. The game's sound and art design was very impressive, I can't remember the last time every aspect of a game's soundtrack felt so hand crafted. The combat is not difficult and the controls felt fine. Figment feels like Psychonauts meets Journey. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. If you liked either Journey or Flower you owe it to yourself to check out Figment.

Played and beat Dandara over the weekend. It's basically a 2D Metroidvania meets Dark Souls. I enjoyed basically everything about the game except the movement controls, which is unfortunate because the strange way of moving is basically the game's gimmick. Maybe a keyboard + mouse would have been better, I used a controller. Despite that it gets a recommendation from me.
