The input lag difference between different games on Stadia is kind of remarkable. Risk Of Rain 2 is almost indistinguishable from my laptop, but in Destiny 2 it's... questionable. It shows potential that all games could be like RoR2, but it means first impressions are a lottery

AMD just leapfrogged BOTH Intel and Nvidia in a single year. What on earth did I just witness.

I see the bi-annual git debate is happening again on dev twitter. Just letting y'all know so you can mute the keyword for a week or two.

Step 1: Type reboot in terminal
Step 2: Hit enter
... Wait
Step 3: log back in
Step 4: open up a terminal
Step 5: hit up, then enter, because you're an idiot

Alright, we're doing this now?
In my 10 years of game dev I've:
🥐 Spent multiple months debugging issues to find single line fixes
🛷 Lost hours accidentally killing programs I was debugging after setting memory watchpoints
🐏 Removed days of work with git checkout HEAD

This is the kind of stuff that's a massive threat to bringing in more gamers to Linux, and nobody really talks about it: news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/09/09

The more I play Eve Echoes, the more I realise it's the mobile game I've been wanting for years - fun short term gameplay coupled with respectable long term goals, but all with a framing of actual player agency, something so lacking from mobile gaming it's unbelievable

There's all these concepts putting rando stuff in @FallGuysGame@twitter.com but where we at with putting a Fall Guy in other games? Put a fall guy in Smash Bros. Put a fall guy in Marvels Avengers. I dare you.

Apple is so embarrassingly stubborn on this it's almost sad. You can ship a browser with access to anything the web has on offer, but an app that gives you a curated set of games? Nah. Closed stores only work when the gatekeepers aren't dinosaurs bbc.com/news/technology-536935

Unpopular opinion - Linux window managers don't matter

Linux 5.8 is out and it's the best Linux to ever Linux, get it while it's hot

This photo from a BBC article about streaming.

The streamer with a bad green screen. The photoshopped face. The background of a dead game (Battleborn). Perfection.

The problem with Ubisoft games of the last 5 years is they hyperactively evoke political issues, symbols, groups and ideologies without ever having anything to say about them. I don't have much hope that will change going forward. The new AC does look like a damn good romp though

The existence of Proton implies the existence of the metric Protonne

LTT really do keep getting better, more honest, and open in their videos. This latest is does Linux gaming justice and for the first time I'll be happily sharing it youtu.be/6T_-HMkgxt0

Why do people even bother buying games when Dwarf Fortress is free

One harsh truth about Stadia right now is that many of the ports look like garbo - ESO is the latest example. It's such an odd problem for a platform like this to have, but it's almost a pattern - the big Stadia Pro games play at Low PC settings.

Good learning experience today - discovered some of my code had been accidentally excluding someone based on a pride flag they were displaying in Slack. Unintentional exclusion/preference is common in computing, but so many still fail to take it seriously. We have to do better.
