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.
@HexDSL the podcast feature of Plex sorta works if you already have a Plex server. I am also on the hunt for something better if you turn up anything.
@dasgeek My Ryzen 9 3900X is on the way. Good to know I can use Pop!_OS if nothing else while waiting for proper patches to land. If only they had a KDE version I would probably use them full time.
@seanposb how's that for timing after our conversation about exactly this yesterday?
The save-an-article service Pocket is useful, but it's also proprietary and tracks you.
There's a privacy-friendly free open alternative called #Wallabag you can use instead.
They have an official instance where you can sign up, suitable for non-technical users:
There's also a project website which tells tech users how to self-host their own instance:

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.

@Wimpy I'd be interested on hearing a "1 month update" or something similiar about using Rebble. I've been using Gadgetbridge from F-Droid to keep my Pebble Time Steel going since the acquisition announcement a while back. I never made extensive use of apps or anything on my Pebble so I haven't noticed any loss of functionality, but it's always nice to know about other options in the event Gadgetbridge disappears.
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.
@switchingsocial I just meant he had something that did / could do far more than the simple calendar function he's looking for.
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.
