If you're not paying attention to the Apple vs. Epic lawsuit, and you care about where the future leads in terms of open platforms, exclusivity, or even what constitutes a "game", then you should be. Whatever side you're on you're missing out on a fundamentally important argument

Oy @discord@twitter.com what ritual do I gotta perform so you can add Krisp to the Linux client?

It's only taken me 200 days but I've finally built the shade a bed in The Longing. What a lovely game.

It's only lunch and I've already written code in 8 languages. Help me.

God it never loses it's novelty to run a system update and see GameMode in there

OK fine Superliminal got me good. I went in expecting another well trodden portal-alike with just one clever mechanic, and got something that felt a little greater than the sum of it's parts. Lovely game.

I can't tell if DRAG's super sampling is working, because I'm at 4x and I'm still 120hz locked. Given how insanely optimized the game is, I'm actually doubting my own doubt here.

I need more multiplayer games where the answer to "Can I do this thing?" is more often than not "I don't know, let's try".

Seeing @geoffkeighley@twitter.com tonight on the game awards is going to be real weird after romancing him in Death Stranding last week

Death Stranding is clearly not a game that can work for everyone, but by god did it work for me. Unforgettable.

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
