I dunno. I'm enjoying. It's fun and zany like 3. I haven't sunk very many hours in yet.

I will say this though, it doesn't have 3's polish. Everything about the game is pretty B quality (voice acting, captions, graphics, etc). It's not awful, it's just not AAA. 3 was a way tighter game from a game polish and mechanics point of view. I don't know what happened to Volition but they don't seem to be able to pull off a 3 scale game anymore.

It's silly fun though. I'm probably in the minority when I say I think it's an A on the humor.

Yeah, it wasn't a bad game. Quality was good (smooth animation, bug free, fast and responsive controls). I'm sort of surprised it wasn't more popular -- though I didn't play all that long either. Maybe people like guns in their battle royals more than spells?

If you're looking for a private search (as opposed to a "privacy" browser) then onesearch.com is better than ddg.

But for privacy browsers... yeah, DDG is still "good"-ish... except for allowing exceptions for their corporate overlord.

Chimera squad was pretty buggy but I enjoyed my time with it. Def worth the entry price (and I bought it at release). It's not as good as xcom but it was a good time.

Another reason not to be first on the block when it comes to a new Microsoft operating system.
There are rarely any upsides.

It is cute though where people say "oh it's more responsive" what does that even mean. Was Windows 7 or Windows 10 unresponsive. Or the odd remark saying "I don't benchmark and I have no proof but x game feels faster."
Placebo effect in full action.

Yeah. Placebo effect is certainly a factor... plus a clean install is always going to feel faster either because of said placebo or maybe even for real but then it doesn't matter whether the clean install is Windows 95, 98, ME, 2K, XP, 7, 8, 10 or 11. Clean is clean is always (slightly) faster. That's just how it is.

I don't get why people are doing this to themselves either. I'd maybe understand if Windows 10 would be offering the free upgrade to people already but currently you have to manually brute-force the upgrade. There is a reason why Microsoft is not starting the full upgrade procedure until 2022. They *know* exactly what a pile of bugs and garbage Windows 11 still is. The only reason it is available now is the imminent release of *new* PCs and laptops with Intel Alder Lake CPUs. And Windows 11 is officially only available for new systems. Period. It's not meant to be upgraded to yet. That's why everyone on Windows 10 would be well advised to just wait patiently until you get the little "your upgrade is ready" message in Windows 10. Whatever... to each their own but please do not complain if your forced upgrade does not work as intended. It's your fault, not Microsoft's.

That was a thing before but I've not done a fresh install since 7 and it's been fine.

I think the TPM requirement is the bigger deal. Nice... it lets you do some more interesting things but this seems to have a lot downsides for your average user.

Tharsis looks kinda cool...might install that one on "purchase".
Tharsis was fun. It was _hard_ though. If you're not good with stats and managing dice randomness it'll seem unfair. There was a guy that streamed a no loss streak at highest difficulty. It was amazing to watch.

Hm... nothing that Cypto guy said is wrong... He must not know how the internet works then because it's rife with abuse (crypto or not). I find his focus on crypto somewhat wanting...

Sus. Car didn't even have FSD on it. I suppose we could stretch the imagination to say they hacked the car's code too but I think there's a simpler reason.

Seems sus to me. I don't think Tesla's will let you autodrive w/o someone in the seat. Just unbuckling the driver belt will cause the car to pull over and stop if autopilot is on.

"Edge, Chrome and Safari". But not Firefox I see...
I use FF primarily but FF has the smallest (and most shrinky-est-ing) market share. I wouldn't put cycles into FF either doesn't make sense from a business point of view.

Not that I'm happy with 2077's rough launch or making excuses for cdpr... but, maybe it's faded from the collective conscious but Witcher releases sucked pretty hard too until they patched the problems. Not 2077 bad but still real bad.
