Pick up Planet Zoo last night. It's rough and unoptimized in areas*, but what an amazing game it is. If I had this game as a kid, I would be so happy. I mean I am now, but I can see my younger self going nuts for it.

*on my 8800/2080Ti/32GB RAM setup, I experience unusual lag

Try this fix in FireFox.
Under the Hamburger Menu, Settings, Accessibility: check "Always enable zoom".

Fixed zooming for me in both firefox and google chrome on my mobile devices.

Has anyone figured out how to display the weather in RDR2 yet? Searched for it and the only info is about how to do it with a controller.

Holy shit was that getting drunk at the saloon with Lenny ever funny. I was laughing my ass off through that. Such great little touches like even misspelling the visual cues. Getting chased by the lawmen, "I'm an American!" Hahaha!


At the very least, make a habit of turning a package over to read its ingredient list and nutrition facts before adding it to your cart.

Derp! I don't know about the US but Canadians are label readers by and large. Almost always you see people here flipping a package over to read the label. More concerning is the packaging itself. So much of it is wasteful and non-recyclable. Beyond that, if it's processed, and it doesn't matter how healthy the processed ingredients are, you're getting the absolute minimal nutritional value from it. Still I never see a shortage of people who live on crap. When I'm looking over what a lot of other people are buying I'm always asking myself "How do you live on that crap?" It's particularly sad when you see older men and they've just got a basket load of frozen dinners. Jesus, learn to cook already.

Shorter holiday season? No retailer starts their holiday season on Black Friday in November anymore. Christmas crap has been out since mid-October at Walmart and the dollar stores and is out in full force almost everywhere now. How is that a shorter season?

It's not about when retailers put things out, but about when consumers start acting. Even just from a consumer perspective, it will feel shorter, totally ignoring retail implications.

Trust me, this is something I'm dealing with every day. With less time between Black Friday and Christmas, some brands are flat-out panicking. It shouldn't be a huge deal, people tend to buy what they feel they should, not what they have time for, but brands and retailers still seem panicked. Particularly ones that have had a shitty year, and the ones (there are many) that do 40%-60% of their entire year in that month.

As mentioned before, mobile experience is 300% better by measure of the PAMS(Pigeon's Arbitrary Measurement Scale). The side bars seemed excessively large on my 1440p monitor, though currently looking good on my laptop (1080). Nice work guys.
