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

Heavy Rain


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 […]

Bloodstained: Lies Of The Publisher


Well, now that's quite the "middleware issue" isn't it? Seems to me the game runs just fine on Proton and Wine... And a windowed-mode desktop shot (with the game's process highlighted in system monitor) as more proof this runs just fine, but ANYONE can set this up and try it. Platinum ratings coming in on […]

Et Tu, Mue 3???


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 […]

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.

Lan Dilayed


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 […]

Stress


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.

Much Rage Today


Things this week: The publishing manager of 505 admitted to being a pirate himself. The WT world champion won via referee instead of taekwondo. Mueller talked a bunch but said nothing new. Carrying my tkd school in the absence of other people who ought to be there kind of sucks. Tornadoes?

Building


Bumped CC2's memory up to 32GB so I can run a lot of containers on it. Also, I'm doing my first Proton build to fix a bug in the save function for Nelke & The Legendary Alchemists. Once I test it, I'll submit it to the project.
