For anyone bored and out of stuff to watch, there's currently a free month of Shudder available on Prime Video which besides having a bunch of old thriller/horror movies has a somewhat interesting show called The Dead Lands. It's about New Zealand tribal mythology.

I feel like they really could have picked a name that wouldn't be mistaken for glorifying police shootouts.

That's what it obviously does, though. Hence "NEGOTIATE WITH CRIMINALS" instead of "engage and question suspects or suspicious persons."

What a dumb fucking game.

I'm using my time at home to dive back into Pinball FX3, and finally started seriously reading again.

I hadn't realized Jeff VanderMeer had new books out.

Why don't they try actually making it easy to stream Steam games to TVs?

Steam Link is an app now, instead of a set-top box. Probably won't be getting any easier than that, outside of investing in a 50- or 100-foot HDMI cable.

Huh I hadn't realized that. How do input devices work, though? I'm positive my cheap Roku TV doesn't accept bluetooth devices or USB dongles for mice, but I imagine my Firestick might work...

Yeah but you have to hold it down for a stupidly long time. I just let DS4Windows turn it off after 10 minutes of idle time.

Working from home is exhausting when you can't leave. There becomes no difference between 8pm on a Saturday and 10am on a Tuesday. If you're awake, you may as well work. Do you want to take a break? You can walk maybe 5 feet. You're walking around significantly less, and changing gears less, so everything becomes some really weird blur. Any distinction between work and not work totally ends. Yeah, you can set boundaries, but at some point they stop feeling as if they matter. You're going to be on the same couch or seat. There's not much to do. May as well do some work, especially since you probably have Teams and Outlook on every screen you loonat and can see it's buzzing with a question.

It's not physically exhausting, it's mentally.

My GF is basically a zombie these past two weeks. I don't think it helps not having a commute (hers is normally 30-45 minutes).... she wakes up, cleans up, and sits down to work.

Ummm PSX had great emulation on the PC. Bleem didn't have the best compatibility, but it allowed you to change graphics settings. CVGS on the other hand ran pretty much exactly like a PSX. As I never owned a PSX, that was how I played most PS1 games... including like a half dozen runs through Symphony of the Night.

In fact VGS was so popular that Sony sued the creators and when the lawsuit ended in favor of VGS they bought the creators and discontinued VGS.

That sucks man. Does your living will include a clause for your Steam library?

I've been spending my days in the house plowing through Infinity Engine games again. Finished Baldurs Gate, Baldurs Gate 2, Icewind Dale so far. They sure don't make them like they used to.

Since all the restaurants are closed, Uber eats is offering “free” delivery service. So I started an order from an Indian joint, got to the end, and saw a 15% service fee on top of them wanting a 15% tip for the driver (newsflash: delivery drivers aren’t waiters). Quickly ended that experiment. Indian joints around here are already stupidly expensive, which is why I started making my own masala.

Restaurants besides Chipotle and its ilk are seriously fucked from this.

Played about 20 minutes... seems really boring. Sixteen shotgun shell limit? What the FUCK? And the whole "arena" shit from the last game is apparently continued here, full steam ahead?

Unfortunately, in some ways they are. There are people who make a living that way, so close the store and they are out of a job. That's a problem we are working to solve, but I suspect no matter what is done a lot of people are going to take a big hit to their long term financial health.

This is horseshit and contrary to what my governor (Ohio) says day after day. Every time he talks about essential workers he directly refers to employees of a) healthcare and b) grocery stores. But so far he only has issued a "soft request" that non-essential businesses cease operations, only going so far as to shutter restaraunts/bars/salons.

Reimbursement to out-of-work or furloughed employees is the responsibility of the state and federal government.

Nearly every store that sells physical products is technically classified as "essential". Which is why they are all still open.

Just got back from the store (a Wal Mart, no less). They had lots of beef, lots of milk, some eggs, some potatoes, some rice, some beans. While they were sold out of prepackaged breads, they had a lot of tortillas. It's like people don't know tortillas are bread... without yeast...

Anyways I got everything I needed for enchiladas tonight Cool

FYI game does work in Windows 7 despite the requirements stating Win10.

It's a bit on the buggy side atm but not too bad.
