The strike is getting surprisingly little coverage in the US, and little enough of it is mentioning the striking workers' specific call to boycott major subsidiaries like Whole Foods, Twitch, Audible, IMDB, etc. There's a limit to how much the AWS monopoly can really be avoided, but at least some solidarity and harm reduction is pretty within reach.

Oh man, fuck Whole Foods.

To be honest we lapsed going there years ago because more and more regular grocery stores had what they were originally the only ones offering and not out of any moral choice. But I sure wouldn't go back now.

GOG's running a sale with a bunch of first gen classics (Starflight, Ultima, Wing Commander) for a dollar or two apiece if there's any gaps in your collection. https://www.gog.com/games?price=discoun ... elease_asc

I'm okay with playing Pocket Edition but I don't think I can recommend it to people who haven't played FFXV already. Wouldn't be surprised to see the normal game get ported in the next year or two; this one just got dropped now because porting an Android APK to Switch doesn't take a lot of work.

What are the differences? So far it seems like it might be dumbed down a bit, but I can't really tell as I haven't played a Final Fantasy since 9.

Most of the open world content is cut, which is the real meat of the game. FFXV is generally at its worst when you're forced to do linear story progression. And watching the cutscenes with the static-faced Funko models is just... odd. There's a lot going on with facial expressions and such that you just don't see in that presentation.

System-wise I wouldn't necessarily take either one over the other, you're just switching awkward console gameplay for awkward mobile gameplay. But if you can't go on a roadtrip with your buddies at any time to hunt down legendary beast meat to put in your Cup Noodles, then what's the point?
