Re: Game hacks

Decided to check and see if anybody's fixed the PC version of Crazy Taxi yet. It appears that they have: Dreamcast Restoration 2.0 & SilentPatch for Crazy Taxi "Dreamcast Restoration" restores the Pizza Huts and such and fixes some bugs. The description doesn't say anything about the s...

Yeah, I got 1, 2, and Tactics from GOG back in the day but haven't played them either.

Re: Hot game deals

bethesda games are all bad But New Vegas is the one that's actually Obsidian, right? inside is real good, especially for $2; it (and limbo) is a sort of prince of persia-esque in terms of momentum and movement puzzle platformer. never too taxing on either the puzzling or the platforming, and some n...

Re: Hot game deals

Fanatical has some Bethesda deals going on. Your Fallouts , your Elder Scrollseseses , and so forth. You know, I've never played a Fallout. Should I try one? I gather 3 was better-reviewed on release but a lot of people looking back seem to think New Vegas is the better one. The Switch version of In...

(Best guess is that kiddo is learning basic electrical safety, that those little things on the walls that look like faces with their eyes and mouth agape can hurt him.) After the first time my dog licked an electrical outlet, she knew not to lick that electrical outlet. After the second time she li...

Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

Ah -- I was going to ask if Musk had actually confirmed it or if this was still just "people familiar with the matter", but I see via NPR that there's a letter to the SEC from his legal team.

Re: It's getting a little STEAMy in here.

I guess I should probably start making notes on games I've been setting up but haven't played much yet. Maybe I'll eventually start contributing to ProtonDB. Anyway! I have the GOG version of Witcher 3, not the Steam version. I've gotten it to work on my other PCs with Lutris, but I couldn't get the...

Re: State of the Brontos

If I'm being honest, "get a job" was out of line. Other than that, I offer no judgement, either to condone or condemn. You're in a shitty situation, you have to make a judgement call as to how to respond (including "do nothing"), you make the best call you can in the moment and p...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

I've been playing a bit of Aria. I've started it a couple times but never gotten very far in it.

I'm playing the Advance Collection version on the Switch this time. It's got some QoL improvements, like save states and less-compressed audio.

Sacheen Littlefeather. She lived long enough for the Academy to apologize to her; it was a nice gesture but a lot less than she deserved.

Re: It's getting a little STEAMy in here.

I really love my Deck! I'm not going to re-image it or anything, just using it out of the box. Yeah, definitely not reimaging it. There's a time I would have thought that would be a fun project, but...nah. The drivers? The screen keyboard? This thing is a fucking marvel and the best I could hope to...

Re: Trump Leaving Office Poll (Part 2)

It's reasonable to worry that the DOJ ultimately won't bring charges, or that Trump will delay and delay and eventually get back into office in 2025 and shut the whole thing down. Both of those are entirely possible outcomes and I don't mean to minimize them. It's just that this specific piece of ne...

DAMN. This'll just get appealed and draw out the whole thing as things get slogged in the appeals process. It's obnoxious, and another pretty clear sign that Cannon's in the tank for Trump and there's more obnoxiousness to come, but it's also not that important in the scheme of things. The DoJ has ...

Re: It's getting a little STEAMy in here.

My Deck arrived yesterday. I haven't had a chance to actually play any games on it yet! But, some initial notes: I put my reservation in on August 11. The shipping estimate at the time was October-December; I figured maybe I'd get it by Christmas. I got my order notification exactly 6 weeks after pu...

I think I probably said this when he died, but: I've seen a lot of bad David Warner movies, but I've never seen a bad David Warner performance. He made good material great, and bad material...well, not good, but at least fun as hell to watch any time he was onscreen.
