AMA but that

Kinda funny how 505 had an AMA about Bloodstained, but nobody was allowed to ask about what the supposed "technical reasons" the native Linux version were dropped for. (Yes, I know it's because 505 lied and there weren't any)

Sometimes, I don’t know why I bother

So here we have the GLUON robot arm kickstarter, which looked like a pretty damn cool toy at an amazing price. Of course, it was too good to be true, and yet another kickstarter ends up being ruined with no recourse and no explanation from anyone involved. This officially puts my Kickstarter record at more […]

Shenmue 3 on Ubuntu

So, if you're wondering if Shenmue III runs on Linux, the answer is yes. I see. Installation is about as basic as it gets: fire up Lutris, pick the Epic Games Store installer, install and run that, then install and run Shenmue 3 from the launcher. That's it. That's all. It just works. Likely on […]

505 Doesn’t Publish Games (apparently)

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
