I don't know, I would be OK with a remake of KOTOR. It has good bones and just needs some minor touches. If they could get Jennifer Hale to do the Bastila VA again of course.

New York is not an easy place to play football and I will always remember him fondly as the guy who denied Tom Brady another 2 Superbowl rings. He was well liked by his teammates and had a pretty damned good record considering the often creaky offensive line surrounding him. I know a lot of people balk at his W/L record but there's more to a career than a single stat and to me he deserves the Hall of Fame.

News Comments > Rocket League Dropping macOS and Linux Support

13. Re: Rocket League Dropping macOS and Linux Support Jan 24, 2020, 09:02 Verno
 
And...honestly, I feel like Linux at some point could become fine for games, but it's just too far behind the curve, and honestly...Windows already does it very, very well. There's simply no compelling reason for the majority to change.

Even if you could persuade them, can you imagine re-teaching every little task outside of gaming? Printing, scanning, productivity software, mundane file operation tasks, etc. A lot of stuff is web based now but the second you're out of Firefox the average person is going to be SOL. Heck a perusal of any Windows based support forum reveals the breadth of the problem, people have enough problems with the simple OS as it is.

Anyways Linux gaming is always going to be a hobbyist thing at best and that's fine. This isn't platform wars, people should use whatever they are comfortable with and fuck what others think about it.

Linux and Mac have never been gaming platforms.

Yep. I've spent a good chunk of my career with OpenBSD, FreeBSD and Linux so I'm used to tinkering and farting around with dodgy ports packages and I still do not bother running Linux for gaming. There's no real upside to it and lots of time wasted troubleshooting. When I was younger I didn't care as much but now that I'm older I just want to get home from work and game. It is certainly easier than 10 years ago but everything is relative and I would still wager that most people here who attempt it will go back. Even the most optimistic take from ProtonDB shows a large disparity between popular games and trouble free compatibility.

For pretty much everything else I do Linux is fantastic but gaming is not one of those things and that will never change without support from OEMs, hardware manufacturers and software developers. There doesn't seem to be a lot of money in it either, many devs just drop support after spending a lot of resources supporting Linux only to find out its 1% of their customer base.

What I usually suggest for people who are serious about attempting it is to just run it on a second computer for awhile and see if you're still serious in a month. You can have a fair amount of success if you're willing to run Windows through a VM thanks to GPU passthru but even then you're going to run into the odd problem. I was doing that for awhile but just said fuck it and went back to native Windows for gaming.

Avenue 5 was...okay so far. I'm a big Hugh Laurie fan and wanted to love it but the delivery and pacing felt off relative to Veep. But I guess we'll see when the characters are more fleshed out. They really went out there with Zach Wood's character, 0 to 100 in the first episode. Didn't watch Picard yet but will do tonight.

Frontier, an ISP in 29 states, plans to file for bankruptcy.

Can we just nationalize the internet already? I have good service, but besides being a local monopoly, I have to watch my bill every month since my ISP randomly adds new services I didn't request.

Nah I think we have more than enough bad examples of government intrusion from other countries, let alone nationalizing the entire thing here. Seriously I'm shocked you would even suggest this.

"Big Navi" needs to do more than best an Nvidia card released in 2016. And yeah their driver quality backslid again after a few years of improvement. Steve from GN said that they were going to take it more seriously as per an interview but they really need to staff up to do so, their driver division has been a skeleton crew.

The CPU market is exciting now and we really need AMD to finally bring it on the GPU side of things. Hopefully once they cast of the last vestiges of Raja Koduri's bullshit designs they can do so.

I clicked on a games thread to read and talk about games, yeah I'm pretty well trained to do that how bizarre. I guess I'm just a weirdo who wants these free games threads to actually evolve beyond the same 5 people e-fighting about bullshit.

I guess well done kxmode, you got em dancin' on those strings.

Totally OK with the delay, most CDPR games have released very rough. Any more time in the tank is only going to be a good thing.

It is always amusing when its so called anti-complainers doing the complaining by themselves Smash

I've only played this for a bit but so far its really plot heavy which is interesting for what boils down to an indie platformer but I am getting a bit fatigued by just how much there is. People on SA and reddit were saying it has some metroidvania elements but I'm not seeing a lot of that yet, admittedly early on.

I really enjoyed it too Blue and without getting into spoilers for people here, I didn't find anything ambiguous about the ending. What's really funny is that there is a lot of discussion on reddit about the ending in the same vein. I've had a frustrating time getting other people to watch it though "oh isnt that some comic thing?".

The second season of Big Little Lies is another good example of something that should've just ended on a high in the first season. I guess it's good HBO learned something from that, even if that show is still popular. Or rather that Damon Lindelof learned something from the Lost fiasco.

Hey Blue forgot to mention the other day when you were talking about RSI issues - Workrave. I've been using this for years now, great little app that reminds you to take breaks. Very customizable and can even block input if your willpower is low.

Maybe it will light a fire under Steam to improve upon their service, I'm all for some friendly competition for my $$$.

Steam has a billion features and a rich API. It's constantly improving on every front. I spent some time recently with friends playing World War Z which we got on sale for $5 on the Epic store and its reminded me just how important that sort of stuff is. It's been a miserable experience. The multiplayer functionality for the Epic client basically doesn't exist. You're left with console style parties hastily slopped together by the devs, no client game join functionality and the whole experience feels like going backward 10 years in time. There is more to gaming than just buying a game, we've come a long way pretty much on the back of Steam.

If anything Epic is the client that needs serious improvement and "some friendly competition". Free games are great but they really need to work on the client to retain people. Based on the few multiplayer games we've played bought on the Epic store, we'll be sticking with Steam in the future.

I'm really into Hades right now but I'll check out Sundered soon. Pretty sure I grabbed that when it was free at the end of the year. Hades is pretty nuts, Bastion devs + rogue-like = super fun. Hits the right difficulty and tons of replay value. I think it's on Steam now too actually.

It would be nice if these threads could not be a fucking dumpster fire all year round. Whether its actual trolls or just people thinking they are clever by "preempting" the trolls, its really getting tiresome. Looking forward to actual game discussion in the free game threads, if that is even possible.
