Game journalists are already defending the $70 price tag and citing inflation as the justification, but so far I've only seen one mention the fact that buying power hasn't risen in almost 40 years, and none of them are making the logical conclusion that, hey, maybe the AAA model is untenable in a world where income disparity is so severe.

You could also look into getting rid of Bobby Kotick and his 9-figure salary. But I'm not holding my breath on anyone pushing for that at this point.

One thing I do notice, is that the community I have come across on here seems infinitely more informed and civil than the average person on Twitter. I left Twotter for a few months and just checked it out again.. Holy shit.. It's been more than two years since I left Facebook and I don't even want to know..

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better

I'm a gamer and try to keep it linux as much as possible. Just read that Titanfall2 is now available on steam and that multiplayer works as fine as expected. I'm willing to forget about apex for the time being and fo full-on TF|2 !
If you like fps's this game is heavily underrated and silly amounts of fun !
Keep in mind that if this is your first time, the skillgap is savage...

Hey fediverse!

I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.

I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.

My goals are to further study mathematics and computer programming fundamentals in order to become a true professional and not just some "guy who makes webapps". I want to contribute meaningfully to my field and the world.

Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.

Day 55 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:

A quick and dirty list of the RSS feeds I read on a pseudo-daily basis. I didn't include feed URLs, but if you're curious about any of them and can't find them, let me know.

Someone made a "face depixelizer" that turn a low-res pic of a face into a high-res one and of course the first thing they did is try it out with Doomguy and honestly that's pretty impressive but also hilarious

Since joining #fosstodon I've realised that #blogging isn't dead, and even more so during the #100DaysToOffload series. So I've shut down my medium account, bought a cool domain 😂 and been working on a Jekyll setup that works for me. I have a few interesting technical posts in the pipe but my introductory post is a nostalgic look at my life in games cyb.org.uk/2020/06/09/my-favou . Some initial encouragement and comments may lead to more regular posts from me! 😆

Has I've been "late spring cleaning" my config files, my .vimrc gets the same treatment. In case you need a good primer on .vimrc, check this link.

Good old joke.
There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

If your new to this is the most easy-to-follow and down to earth guide I've read so far.
Kudos to @kev for the write up.
Boost appreciated.
