    Anyone getting Dying Light 2 this Friday?

    Late to the party… I’m not even at the party yet because I’m playing the original Dying Light. @jro , I found the default FOV in Dying Light to be way too narrow, and the option to change it is in a strange spot, but it made a lot of difference for me.

    I just got a Mac

    @skate323k137, I did mean the main reason for most users. I haven't messed with any Apple Silicon devices, to the best of my knowledge, but I understand the applications of SoC for efficient and small-form devices. I use Windows on my desktop and Linux on most everything else, though.

    The reason for going (or staying) Apple is the ecosystem (computers, tablets, phone, watch). For power, it's still Windows. For looks you can use either to browse /r/unixporn before you get back to work.

    New Star Wars stuff announced

    The Force Awakens was competent but pointless. The Last Jedi had a point but was incompetent. In Rise of Skywalker they got the perfect synthesis of pointless incompetence.

    Therefore, since the world has still Much good, but much less good than ill, And while the sun and moon endure Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure, I'd face it as a wise man would, And train for ill and not for good.

    Elizabeth Bathory is subtly telling Eric Lecarde that she's not interested in getting speared by him...

    Unfortunately, I don't think anyone ever put out an improved custom firmware for the x7.

    I didn't have any specific part in mind, but it's the first game that comes to mind when I think of developers using programming tricks to make the hardware do things like sprite rotation.

    Steam Deck Portable PC Games Hardware

    I've just been running native (not steam) Retroarch through a shortcut in the steam menu since that's what I'm used to, but I'm trying out Emudeck now. It's my fault for having uncurated full sets for older systems, but to keep my deck interface uncluttered I'll probably wind up using Emudeck...

    This would be my first assumption. Are the gears present on this emulator using the unpatched rom? Does Gunstar Heroes work?

    @pixeljunkie has the aftermarket screen protector created any noticeable problems with the touchscreen?

    I'm playing it every day. Half the time I'm messing around with emulation. Yesterday I was messing around with custom per-game settings and configuring the touchscreen input for Nintendo DS. Pretty simple to do, and I'm very happy with the results. Performance is great as long as you remember to...

    Glad to see Fallen Order's sequel is real. I didn't mind the levels so much. The universe of the game overall felt a little small. The atmosphere and tone of the intro sequence were probably the best part, with the possible exception of the last training flashback. There are other stories to...

    BEST TV Shows to watch... CURRENTLY...

    I'm not sure History Channel ever really rose above that level, though, did it? I saw a dramatized program about, like, Dunkin Donuts, and then bits from the prestige-docuseries on Ulysses S. Grant and Teddy Roosevelt. For what they were, I thought they were pretty good. TV primarily works to...
