blockchain metaverse game

Does anyone here (all of us geeks) know what that actually means? I do not, and will be sending a squad of inquisitors to the relevant sites to discern the truth. Cthulhu

‘I’d rather eat an actual burger’: why plant-based meat’s sizzle fizzled in the US - Meat.

Funny, I was just chatting with a couple of former coworkers. They prefer the Beyond or Impossible over real meat, and they used to be huge meat eaters.

I'm a pescatarian IRL (a hobbitarian on these boards, obv) and I like the Beyond Meat stuff although I check the fat content carefully. Beyond Meat chili is very good when made with ancho, poblano and arbol chiles, okra and black beans. And maybe with a dash of hobbit sauce.

Utilities are going to be expensive this winter, so I’ll just set up a cot next to my computer to keep myself warm. Maybe fire up Crysis or New World on those extremely cold nights. Brrrrrrr

This made me smile. Well played!

That Steam Deck is not much bigger than the real thing!

I'm kinda kidding although portability is really not its strong point. It weighs just a bit too much to be carried around daily, and if I'm at home I just use my gaming rig.

Have you backed up everything

Have you ran the manufacturers hardware tests if available

Have you tried reformatting and reinstalling the os (nevermind, you’re factory reset is the same thing.)

Have you reseated all the components?
WiFi card, battery, memory

Have you unplugged everything from its USB ports etc

Seconded, especially the manufacturer's diagnostic software. I once had a new Dell laptop that was unstable, ran the Dell diagnostics software from the boot menu and it turned out the video card fan was dead. They replaced the fan and it ran right as rain for 3 years (until I finally fried it in a completely unrelated incident).

While BoP busily checks for belly button lint. It really is the cashmere of lints.

BoP has been busy putting out other people's fires at work (called in on an emergency basis).

I just have three words to say:

Fuck Windows Server.

Amen to that, human. Just uttering those words here in Mordor is reason for a death sentence. Skull

Of the games on the list I have only played Stray, with the younger Ms. Sauron. It's pretty great - low-stress (albeit some action scenes where you can die if you're half asleep). Really excellent game design and pacing. And it has a dedicated Meow button.

Also FYI this site does not appear to have a cat emoticon despite having a Cthulhu emoticon - I am scandalized on behalf on catkind! (Not really - the Cthulhu one is great and cats can't read).

Played the game for a 100 minutes. I'll sleep on it whether I'll refund it or not.

The game starts out fantastic! You're a cat, playing with your small group (pride? 😜) of other cats. The animations look amazing it's immediately obvious these devs are truly cat lovers. That last point is important for me later.

Anyway, about half an hour in the game turns from a lineair but good cinematic experience into a very gamey one. Find this guy. Collect this and that for that guy, so that he'll give you this and that to give to another guy et cetera. A hundred minutes in, I realize what I feared from the beginning: you could've just as well been a little troll, blob, robot -- anything small and nimble! -- and nothing would be different. I'm afraid the game designers at some point simply forgot that you're a fucking CAT!

But... I don't think I'll refund. Despite the game feeling arcady... they really nailed the cat looks and animations and also the way you control the cat by the way. This alone deserves my money. I hope other devs/publishers will look at this and see that a game where you're a regular animal can be good if done right.

Thanks! Day 1 purchase for me... and mainly for my teenage cat-loving daughters.

Sigil was quite good, so I can overlook Daikatana
No forgiving him.
If his ineptitude hadn't bankrupted Ion Storm and nearly Eidos, Warren Spector would have made more games there (I liked Thief Deadly Shadows and Deux Ex Invisible War even if the last didn't have the quality of the first but Warren had seen the writing on the wall and was making his exit among the studio chaos and drama).

Tom Hall's Anachronox was really good and he had ample material ready for a sequel too but the financial debacle Romero caused ended that.

^ This.

Good call.

Blue, do you have AC?
We have three wall units. Two in bedrooms, and one for the main floor. The main unit struggles in extreme heat, but manages. Our dream is to be able to put in one of those heat pump installations, but we're not clear if we're actually allowed here. The win for me is the downstairs where I work is naturally cool. I guess that's my payoff for working almost 20 years in a sweltering attic.

Are they minisplits? If not you might want to consider them - they do heating and AC and are easy to install and cost-efficient to run:

Mitsubishi and Fujitsu are the brands to look at.



We use them here in Mordor to keep down the heating bills in winter and get rid of the heat from roasting hobbits in summer. Cthulhu

That's exciting.

Releases tomorrow but no price, is that because no-preorders?

$9.99 on the Switch. https://www.nintendo.com/store/products/blade-runner-enhanced-edition-switch/

Double exciting. Great price point.


I had the original but the graphics suuuucked even back then. I love the movies and love the Switch (and the Deck) and if this is any good it's a must-buy.

Oh I got bunnies out the wazoo here. Last year one was stupid enough to nest in my back yard, oblivious to the two hounds I let out there every day (or maybe she thought my dogs would protect them).

Here's one of the little guys after they finally came out of their nest.
