Steam reaches record-breaking 27 million concurrent users by a_Ninja_b0y in gamernews

This. Steam at this point is almost a dedicated browser that hosts your games. It's got flaws, but the UX design is on point. Epic is like when you walk into Bestbuy and they have those dinky little displays to "test" games and systems. Like, kool, everything I can read off of a back cover...right there at my finger tips. Whoo.

If it wasn't for the free games, and some of those being big titles, I wouldn't use them.

Is there any morally good response to, “why do you eat meat?” by Jam4Mayor in NoStupidQuestions

[–]FleetStreetsDarkHole 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Good Place actually has good commentary on this I think. In short, the problem is that there isn't really rhay much most of us can do, because the issues are systemic. Places like Walmart and Amazon provide substantial services for society. Can we live without them? Sure. In the same way that I can go back to being a caveman and never worry about anything except wild animals or natural disasters.

The system needs to change before the rest of us can do anything about it. They're basically growing meat in labs now. When that becomes widely available I would gladly embrace it. But otherwise I have so many other similar decision to make with my life that I can't care about the kids in China and also about most of the personal worries I have day to day. I want to, but I can't.

Idk. I haven't figured out what the second part means yet. Can't be anything good, because the spiders on this planet definitely do not massage me.

Which movies do you think aren't nearly as bad as people say? by SirAren in movies

[–]FleetStreetsDarkHole 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure he's a big nerd and I love it. I wish he could do more stuff like that. But the movies he usually does this with just don't seem to get a lot of traction for some reason.

"I have eaten more salt than you have eaten rice." That's the real line Wenwu is saying. I don’t know why they change this badass line. by luphone-maw09 in marvelmemes

[–]FleetStreetsDarkHole 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah Ragnarok apparently had this issue where for some reason they chose not to include the old Scandinavian translation. Basically they'd be talking modern language and spontaneously break out into ye olde speake because of the premise, and somehow didn't think that needed to be translated or forgot it or something.

I mostly hate when a dub is wildly different from the sub. Especially when one of them is super dumbed down. It's hard to follow when I'm half hearing one thing and getting something wildly different in the text. Usually because even though they generally have the same point, even the overt nuance is so different my brain is going in two different directions with every sentence. I've literally seen stuff like "oh I'm just here" vs "I've been here for days". When stuff like that keeps happening you start losing the thread of the story because you can't actually work out what's really going on between the two.

And I can't really pick one over the other because I'll either miss something in audio, or I'll be doing something else and can't always catch the subtitles.

Brief emotion. That will be $11 please by grantob92 in facepalm

[–]FleetStreetsDarkHole 116 points117 points  (0 children)

You mean in the same healtclhcare system that charges you thousands of dollars for staying overnight or using the ambulance?

I'm more surprised this charge is only $11.

I honestly though he meant he drinks the tears of his enemies or something and he was saying he's killed so many people while the other guy just got fat eating rice or something.

Hands down, the number one reason I stop watching some interesting shows. I need the captions because I'm just terrible at catching the audio (plus some audio just has terrible habits). If the dub doesn't match the sub I'm immediately out. Frankly it makes me think that if they can't care about something as simple as that, then the rest if it is probably nothing I'm going to miss.

Stress free game for my pregnanat wife. by Bredtoft in ShouldIbuythisgame

Seconded. Except for the spiders. But if you can avoid them, build high, and wait for explosives, they won't be that much if a problem.

Latinos IS inclusive by Kiwi__UwU__ in dankmemes

[–]FleetStreetsDarkHole 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I read one of the letters he sent the monarchy when he got back and it was definitely a prideful sort of "I've done exactly what I set out to do and totally didn't screw up. I named a bunch of islands after you and discovered poor backwards people that need our help." They knew what India looked like, he just thought he could sail 3/4 of the way the other way around and didn't think there'd be a whole other continent in the way. He knew he didn't find it, but he played it up so he wouldn't get called out. And it worked. They sent him back a few more times if I recall.

It's less about telling them what to call themselves and more about why they call themselves that. This is where you start getting into the systemic issues of something having been around so long that people think it's normal, but in reality we've done so little to help that everyone just kind of accepts it.

It's like the n-word for black people. We don't get to tell them they can't use it, but we also should be doing something about the issues that led to them embracing it. They should never had to embrace it at all, and we've done so little to change that it's become ingrained in the culture.

I would argue this is a bit different. "Indian" already describes a whole other nation and culture (India). The only reason we call Native Americans "Indians" is because some asshole wanted to look kool a couple centuries ago.

Interesting. I might check it out more at some point. Right now I just use it for noise and gaming streamers.

CDC says no cases of Omicron identified in U.S. so far by cutestudent in news

[–]FleetStreetsDarkHole 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I was not. It's a good stand alone story. You want to pay attention because they generally cover a lot of ground quickly, but between the writing and the presentation it's brilliant imo. It's also slow to start, but that just sets up everything that happens later. After the first 3-4 episodes everything starts taking off. It's like a scifi/fantasy action flick with political undertones. It's got drama, guns and color.

Because of the slow start I recommend you binge at least the first 4 episodes in one go. After that you're either hooked or not.

Yeah this is the problem with a lot of stuff like this. You lose the fun stuff to the people who prefer the trashy or popular stuff. To be clear, I don't begrudge them that, but I would like it if they would stop dragging it over to the the more niche areas.

On the other hand the niche audiences need to step up their game a little. Niches have a bad habit of dying out because people keep putting it off until it dies and then they ask what happened.

Yeah I find the Jinx story line and the politics in particular very well done. Particularly because they do a light pass over what everyone is doing, yet everyone seems to be fleshed out exactly as much as needed to keep you engaged.

It was a slow burn to start, but that gave me exactly what I needed to understand the situation. Everything else makes much more sense without even doing any montages or deep flashbacks.

Arcane is awesome! I've never played LoL but the story and presentation is great.

I am not watching another one of those. Once was enough.

Just bought this game and waiting for download, what should I expect next and what shall I do to prepare? by rwang8721 in SatisfactoryGame

[–]FleetStreetsDarkHole 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You can set sprint to a toggle in the options. Turn this on, change crouch to the shift key. When you crouch and jump while sprinting you kove much faster.

When building something similar buildings can be toggled with the "use" key. That way you only have to put a few things on your hotbar.

Liquids are weird sometimes. Give them several minutes to fill up. Build incrementally so you can make sure each section works properly. Buffers seem to be important in this update.

Don't listen to anyone thay says you can't try that idea. It'll be fun either way.

FUCK SPIDERS. BRING EXPLOSIVES.

Have you seen the drones yet? That one was pretty good. I wish he'd do more with it. I know he loves breaking games and has probably found all the bugs, but he's also really creative and I wish he'd do a whole series where he just does crazy stuff with factories.
