    @toughshed: @therealturk: Full agreement with both of your thoughts. People confuse change or "modern" design for progress, and Diablo 3 is a perfect example of something that was different but didn't...

    This will sound dumb, but orienting the pi 4 vertically improves heat convection quite a bit compared to lying flat. Might be worth trying before going out and buying a bunch of additional hardware.So...

    I don't usually watch the video version of the pod but Alex's Goofy impression and Jeff's "No way, you think? Knuckles??" are so good

  • zoofame posted a message on the post The HotSpot - Episode 396.

    @humanity: I see Jeff's point that it's pretty ghoulish to reduce people to an AI simulation. It takes away the person's agency if you are literally programming words to put in someone else's mouth. E...

    I really like the Pi4 as a low-risk option. As long as the client devices don't require transcoding it should work fine. Practically speaking anything should be able to play a ripped DVD using h264 i...

    For the server itself, if you haven't built a PC before you may be more comfortable getting an intel NUC (either bundled with an SSD and RAM or get one barebones and install your own). You could then ...

  • zoofame posted a message on the post Destruction AllStars.

    The problem I have watching the gameplay is that it lacks any intentionality. You just kind of run/drive around aimlessly hoping to flinch into another player to maybe come out on top? There are power...

    @deathpooky: I felt the same with Astroneer initially. I think it clicked when I realized with silos and the shrinking device you can pack just the basic power and processing infrastructure you need o...

  • zoofame posted a message on the post 672: Great Conversations.

    Re: E3, did anyone actually like the stuff Keighley put together last summer? My impression was that it was underwhelming and suffered from being spread too thin over too much time. Even the few major...

    I see a lot of people pining for Demo Derby but when was the last time you watched the last run of those? DD lived and died with the Jeff + Dan pairing because Dan was excellent at prompting Jeff to ...

    Road cars that people could actually purchase as their first car, or hand-me-down family cars that were our first experience driving. There is a lot of nostalgic value in these vs the thousandth Skyl...

    @corporalgregg: That headshot trick is very handy. I think I discovered it in Hitman 2 although I've been playing on PC with a Dualshock controller since the first game. It's very easy to clear a room...

    4K Legendary Lensflare Edition ME1 and ME2 already looked modern with texture mods. Being able to play these through Steam (and thus Proton on Linux) is the real win here, and not having to keep a Wi...

    The part I don't get is why kill it off now? What was the plan when this endeavor was announced a year ago? Surely they could not have expected to release a game in under 2-3 years time even under the...
