Hey.

I’m Dan. A 35 year old father of two who doesn’t have nearly as much time as he needs to do half the things he wishes he had the time to do.

I never skipped the Succession intro. The combination of really interesting video footage and that incredible music just hit perfectly.

Succession

Same goes for Scrubs. I love the way the characters change throughout the short intro, and the song has gone on to be one of my absolute favourites.

Scrubs

I’ve got to be honest, I thought the Dead Space remake was a significantly more impressive return than the RE4 one.

I mean I’m careful to only order from the place down the road that does a BOGOF offer. I’ll eat one there and then and let the other… stink out the fridge unless the family gobbles it up the following morning.

I tried the AF a few months ago and found it just kind of made the top layer crunchy, so I usually microwave it.

Probably doesn’t help the flavour, but it keeps the texture just how I like it.

I mean, it was a Buy One Get One Free offer. I still ate the first pizza…

In the year since I got my Steamdeck it’s become favourite way to play games. The only thing I really have an issue with…is the screen, and this looks to have addressed that issue.

Going to be real hard for me not to splurge on this.

Serious question. How do you decide if something is garbage or not, like what’s the criteria?

The thing I’m giving to this post instead of giving to the growing pile of laundry I need to do.

So I finished Super Mario Wonder and it’s as good as you’ve heard it to be.

And I just started playing Cult of the Lamb. Really digging that so far, although I can already feel the anxiety that usually comes along with the base management aspects of these games; so much to do, no idea what to prioritise.

I think there’s a difference between soggy cereal and dry cereal. If you’ve got milk in the bowl then most of the cereal that’s also in the bowl should be (erm)…moist?

Oneeightnine,
@Oneeightnine@feddit.uk avatar

Yup.

I’ve got two (5,1). I absolutely adore them both, but I’d be lying if I said that having kids hasn’t made my life significantly harder, my mental health significantly worse and my sense of self significantly weaker.

There’s so much stigma around this sort of thing. It’s getting better, but the mindset that children are a gift and parents should be constantly grateful for that gift is still very prevalent.

The reality is that whilst children are absolutely incredible, life affirming and all that good stuff…an awful lot of being a parent is frankly, horrible.

I guess at the very least I get to enjoy their excited faces when I get home from work. Can’t imagine you get much of that when they pass you on the way to their bedroom later on?

Well firstly, any new staff inevitably ask the ‘do we work an hour more/less’ depending on the circumstance.

Aside from that, not much else changes. One Sunday morning I’d finish at 6 and then six months later I’d have a Sunday where I finished at 8.

Fortunately I never worked Sunday nights, so I never felt like I was losing much after work time.

Is the plan here to just make the country so utterly shit that Labour have to spend their first stint back in charge undoing everything?

If I genuinely absolutely adore a book that I’ve read digitally I’ll usually go in for the paperback. And, this might be the snob in me, but I’m more likely to make that purchase if it’s a nonfiction book.

I think that technically we have two ‘moons’ already. Just that the other one is super small and doesn’t really have much effect on the planet.

Sorry that this didn’t answer your question, and feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

Oneeightnine,
@Oneeightnine@feddit.uk avatar

Thanks for the heads-up. It would appear I was wrong.

Had a nice walk around with my daughter. A few of the houses that were a bit more…dressed up proved too scary for her and there was a somewhat awkward instance where she’d ran off to her mum after I’d knocked…but that aside it was alright actually.

Still don’t love it mind.

How do you take a game that’s already incredibly self-serious and make it even more so without it becoming a cliché of itself?

Gettin real goddamn tired of dogs

I like dogs like I like toddlers. It’s fun to hang out with other people’s for a while, but ultimately they’re annoying, loud, and make a mess. I feel like in the past 10 years or so, dog owners have become increasingly convinced that everyone thinks their slobbering, untrained mutt is god’s gift to everyone, and expects...

Oneeightnine,
@Oneeightnine@feddit.uk avatar

I think most people have indoor dogs and for the most part they’re fine. The problem (imo) usually stems from people not fully appreciating how much work it actually takes to look after, and train a dog. Especially post-lockdown.

This sort of thing is very personal. IIRC 2018 was the last time we had one of these years and I was really meh on the entire year. Not bad, but it certainly didn’t thrill me.

'23 has been wild though, so many games have hit with me.

Doesn’t make it any less horrific but this isn’t much different to how they treat children in care. The second they become adults they’re turfed out.

Larian are far from the only studio that’s willing to do this. The Witcher 2 features a choice after the first act that locks off one pathway in its entirety. It’s probably 5-10 hours of content that’s locked out until you play the game again (or load and make another choice I guess).

That said, I agree with your point, I wish we had more developers that are willing to take that risk.

I think there’s a big difference between a mental institution and a therapist. Almost apples and oranges.

I think it’s probably the most unashamedly enjoyable game I’ve played in a long time.

Oneeightnine,
@Oneeightnine@feddit.uk avatar

Spider-Man 2.

I think I’m in the final act now, and the only real complaint I have is with the >!MJ sections, which just feel stiff compared to the rest of the game, that could be entirely a personal preference thing though!<.

If there was ever a game that I’d describe as a ‘Popcorn game’, it’d be this one. There’s always something fun and engaging to do, moving your character around the world is fun and I never feel like they’re filling for length or that they aren’t respecting my time.

This game seems almost perfectly designed to frustrate me, and yet at the same time it has me totally entranced.

Is there any way I can stop seeing sports posts?

I don’t know if this was asked before and I don’t know how to look for that so I’m sorry if this is a repeat but, I keep seeing American football posts which I couldn’t care less about and I keep blocking the communities but they’re like thousands of millions of communities that never end. And no, I don’t wanna stick...

Oneeightnine,
@Oneeightnine@feddit.uk avatar

I’m a big sports guy and I rarely see random sports posts in the wild. Could OP be viewing the “all” page maybe? We had a similar issue a few days ago with Elon Posts and I wonder if it’s not a similar issue here?

santoshgontu, to mastodon

@mastodon is growing but it can never replace . The day Mastodon will make things commercial it will flip.

Bold of you to assume its users want it to replace Twitter.

I’m not overly active on here, but if this came to a vote I’d go with Yes, it should allow for fantasy maps.

I’ve got to assume there’s some dodgy prints going around? I got a PAL version of the game on disc (standard edition) and it installed without issue, and so far I’ve not noticed any significant issues with that installation.

Did you not read the first part of my relatively short post where I indicated that there’s probably a problem…

Weekend Discussion: Have you ever been worried about the effect gaming has on you, or your life?

Hello. It’s been a while. For those of you who aren’t aware, our home instance has been going through a bit of drama as of late, and it’s sort of pushed a lot of us to step back. However, now that the future is looking a little rosier, I think it’s time to start getting the place rocking again....

Because ££ I guess? She’s not a terrible landlady by any means, but…she doesn’t live here so what’s a daily problem to us is a financial issue she doesn’t need to deal with.

Can’t really go with the window option, the five year old might be able to deal with that but the toddler won’t, plus I refuse to splurge money on energy if it’s going out the window.

Will bleach make any real difference? I’ve also heard that a dehumidifier can make help keep the air clean
