One has to wonder if this will turn out as well as Stephenson's "Clang".

This is still one of the weirdest things to me; GoT was until Season 6 (and 7) absolutely everywhere, seemingly everyone had seen it, everyone knew it, everyone was talking about it – and after the last season complete silence and forgotten, deliberately erased from people's minds... I mean that's also some kind of achievement (maybe just not something to brag about)

Social media and band-wagoning (in both directions).

Take the last word from each line...
Why?

Edit to clarify: Not trying to be a dick, just wondering what specifically you're referring to that I might be missing. If it's just about the dark tone of the end words, I find the full verses to be far more effective.

That's a weird response. If I'm not participating in either Steam or Stadia, why is it "painful" to me? With the exception of a few independently developed titles, I buy my library from GOG, where I own what I buy. For keeps.

So how does it feel, then, selling out software consumers' interests as a whole?

Sure, "no one" wants to have their games installed in some nebulous cloud rather than on their own hardware, under the ownership of a corporate giant that could pull the plug at any time rather than enjoying twenty-year-old favorites whenever they choose. But "no one" wanted Steam at first, either. Boiled frogs always cozy up, eventually. Google, et. al., know this.

It'll be tragically un-funny when so many of you eventually line up to surrender gamers' interests with Stadia. You know, the way you did with Steam and eventually every other DRM shitpile out there.

I remember back when people used to scream that Valve represented a DRM apocalypse; that they were going to control your access, your purchases, your digital life--they would eliminate your rights as consumers; that one day they could just pull the plug.

Bunch of boiled frogs.

Sometimes it is the title and the public social fuss about it (Arkane's "Prey"), sometimes the game is "too complicated" (Looking Glass' first two "Thief" games), sometimes for to me unknown reasons (Irrational Games' "System Shock 2").

Unknown reasons? System Shock 2 had endless respawning enemies and breaking weapons combined with a lot of backtracking in mazelike levels which meant you ended up fighting with a stupid wrench through the same maps over and over again! Which just wasn't fun. Also everybody you ever thought you would meet was always dead when you got there. Which got old fast. And it seems they repeated the same exact mistakes with Prey again, regardless of choosing a bad name, just because it was available.

I've honestly never understood this gripe. I'm a Thief player, so maybe that factors into it, but I like that there are respawning monsters, and I like that the levels are alive and never empty, regardless of firefights. In Thief, I don't take out any AI (unless it's utterly necessary), I avoid them like you're meant to. This keeps Thief alive, too. Knocking everyone out leaves you with a non-shooter-run-and-not-gun, boring, empty, no challenge. Additionally, I have never once run out of needed tools in SS2. In fact, my elevator remains utterly crammed with equipment from the moment I first restore it to functionality.

While we're on the topic of disabling useless tech, my personal most-hated has always been depth of field. It's redundant and restrictive. Eyes already do it, and to use it to force me to look somewhere is not a pleasant experience, it just makes me feel like I have blurry vision. I will look where and when I choose, thank you very much. Furthermore, I don't need to point my mouse at something in a scene to look at it, I simply move my eyes.

Like all games, it's got its downsides (e.g. grinding). But the world is beautiful and interesting, and shockingly enormous (and still growing). It's definitely worth checking out to see if it interests you.

If I had my wish, they'd abandon it altogether until they can secure a team that has the skill to do it right (which this one didn't, by limited appearance at least). Last thing I'd want is a SS3 that resembles Ascendant in any way. Furthermore, Spector, shmector. Who cares. His golden halo dried up long ago. We need more games for MIT grads.

Edit: Sounds like a perfect time to begin that SS2 replay I've been planning!

Exactly. I haven't understood this type of thing since it was first mentioned. Musk does some weird things/bad choices but it's usually not regarding his technologies--that he takes seriously. Why the hell is he intentionally building distraction into his vehicles? Just seems like a really dumb move.

Fucking social media. When exactly is this age of self-fueled drama and outrage set to end, the willful taking of issue with every single new thing that comes along just for the sake of riding on the bandwagon with the rest of the snowflakes?

I mean,
A male getting a female an exercise bike is certainly offensive...unless you figure maybe it's for both of them and she really, really, really wanted one. Clearly she doesn't need to lose weight, so why jump to that assumption? Have you heard that fit people exercise, too?

And,
Being "nervous" about such a thing is certainly offensive, too, isn't it?...unless it's nervous excitement for something she's been looking forward to forever. Maybe she fights depression or has type 2 diabetes or arthritis or heart disease, all of which can benefit from exercise. In which case you should STFU and stay out of her medical business.

And,
Using a very attractive and fit woman (and man) for advertising is certainly offensive...unless you realize that advertising has always used attractive people (even when they're meaning to be "unattractive") and no one would be inspired to get fit by an unfit person, unless of course they came with a before/after progress display wherein they've become... surprise... more attractive.

Talk about reading offense into everything. Anyone who doesn't appreciate how exercise changes your life is someone who has never done it and knows nothing about it. Stop being so damn delicate and go move your offended precious fat lazy ass. If you stick with it for more than a day, you might just learn that exercise does in fact change your life.

I'm personally finding the font very hard to read. Too crammed, not enough blank space, too much white per blue.

Doesn't feel like Blue's after all these years, but I suppose that'll pass. I don't imagine "hard to read" will pass, though. Is it possible that sites allow users to choose among a selection of fonts and that gets saved in the cookie? Not sure.

Edit: old versus new
