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

Heavy Rain

June 26, 2019


Maybe as a Linux gamer I'm more used to having a stack of stores/launchers for playing games - Overwatch, for instance, goes Steam->Lutris->Battle.net->Overwatch for me - so I don't really care too much about Epic's store. Also, running under WINE drastically limits their ability to steal data, too.

That said, the Heavy Rain demo runs on Lutris - which is interesting, but I'd rather have Detroit: Become Human.

To do this, just tweak the DXVK settings in Epic Game Store's launcher to use DXVK 1.2.2. Game runs, choppy a little, with sound and speech.


Et Tu, Mue 3???

June 10, 2019


It's painful watching people sell out, especially when they're people you honestly admired and thought would be above it. After today's Epic Store Exclusivity announcement, I'm gravely disappointed in Ys.Net and Deep Silver.

Someone at Kickstarter really needs to step up and start defending backers, or there won't be any backers left to defend, and KS, as well as the smaller indie projects it was actually meant for, are going to be the ones that suffer.


uname -eh?

Linux beast 5.0.0-16-generic #17-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 15 10:52:21 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

It's running pretty nicely so far, though there was a strange thing with the USB-C dock I have all my desktop shit plugged into, but that seems to have passed.

Will try some games once I'm done work today.

Sooo Mue 3 will be another two months delayed?

Keep in mind this represents a little less than 1% of the total amount of time we've all waited for Ryo to come out of the cave.

Given how OTHER Kickstarters are going (HISSSSS) and my personal faith in Yu Suzuki's commitment to quality, I'd give him another year at least.

In a perfect world, we'd be able to play the two previous games on the engine for 3, and it'd all be running on a Dreamcast 6, but I'll take it. <3


Stress

June 3, 2019


It's nice having work stress to distract me from the pile of dickery last week - though it was nice getting a mail back from the California Attorney General's office.

I'm having a weirdly introspective day too, but lack any concrete way of modifying the things that are bothering me.

I'm tired of chasing ghosts.


Memeage

...it's a damn shame everything went centralized again. In a perfect world, everyone would have their own website and you'd follow people's RSS feeds to get updates and reshare.

I really fucking hate Facebook.
