Old Androids Never Die, They Just Have A Few Screws Loose

Beta Testing

It's pretty fun to get to try out games before they get released. :)

The next Outbreak:Epidemic update is gonna be quite awesome.


505 Doesn't Publish Games (apparently)

July 21, 2019


So if you've been following along, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was supposed to have a native Linux release - which was cancelled due to unspecified "middleware" problems. No refunds were offered or given, and people who asked were directed to the online forum operated by 505 Inc.

I filed a complaint with the CA DOJ over the publisher's behavior, and got this response from them, which says some surprising things:

1 - 505 claims to "not be a party" to the Kickstarter, despite being responsible for delivering rewards, and so I should have to sue Iga directly if I want a refund (which is of course impossible as I am American and he is in Japan);

2 - They claim that they PUBLISH NO GAMES!

3 - They claim that since the game runs (and use MY instructions as evidence) that the promise has been met, despite it being unsupported.

While it should go unsaid that I will never buy anything from 505 ever again, it's quite disgusting to see them try to take credit for the game but simultaneously claim to be nothing but a distributor.


How White Nationalists See What They Want to See in DNA Tests - The New York Times

July 12, 2019


TL;DR: You can't unracist someone by showing them their actual lack of purity. Racists are stupid, and will disbelieve the science.

Kind of like with antivaxxers.

What happens when white supremacists on the hate site Stormfront learn that they're not as white as they thought? Two researchers investigated.

Outbreak: Epidemic on Steam

July 9, 2019


Linux support, cross-platform co-op, and continuing the plot and world of previous releases, Epidemic is free to play and the DLC is worth every cent.

I helped beta test this game and found it to run flawlessly on Ubuntu. <3

Return to the world of free-to-play 4-player co-op survival horror with classic gameplay, strict inventory management, crushing enemies, horrific difficulty and more as you and a group of survivors try to survive the epidemic.
