It’s not really a feature, but downloading the “PSO2” side of the game is now optional if you play the Steam version. It chops 58GB off the total install size if you don’t download it.

That’s enough to get me to re-download tbh



many people have developed carpal tunnel syndrome from traditional joysticks

Yep, my hitbox saved my left wrist



i want shorter games with worse graphics made by people who are paid more to work less and i’m not kidding



"Dogs really are man’s best friend, they know their place, and perform useful functions like biting burglars and chasing balls that you throw for them,” Ryan wrote, according to Bloomberg

Homie was trash, glad he’s gone lol

Doubt whoever replaces him will be better though


3D Platformers. We get maybe one or two every few years, and most of them are usually pretty short. last big one was probably A Hat in Time. if y’all know more beyond that let me know. just grabbed Koa and the 5 Pirates of Mara.

so desperate for one i’m considering learning how to make 3D games so i can make my own lol


I’m sad he’s in the hard category. I love his design and play style but I’m already really bad at SF lol.


Rashid is out in SFVI
What do you think of him

Because laws are for poor people silly goose



i’m pretty sure it exists to make vita fans mad (it’s me, i’m vita fans)


it’ll be sony proprietary for the first 15 minutes it’s out in the wild until someone cracks it to make it useful




the fact that you sound incredibly angry about a post I put down a month ago and then put “outrage journalism” in quotes is hilariously ironic, but not in a way I think would lead to any sort of interesting conversation so I won’t get into it with you beyond that





they also will be getting King, which makes Candy Crush, which makes about a bil a year




more than possibly any other industry, gaming companies don’t really see their video games as “art.”

nintendo doesn’t want you to buy their old games because they want you to buy their new ones. that’s all they give a shit about.



the longer you spend time around me the longer you’ll find that I can’t shut the fuck up about gravity rush 2

does it have flaws? probably. good luck trying to have a conversation with me about them. that game gave me a sense of joy and happiness I have literally been chasing since it came out in 2017.

a fun main character, one of the most unique movement mechanics I’ve experienced in a game, sick music, all the questions from the original game answered in ways I never would have expected, and an open world that, whilst not very interactive, is so architecturally interesting that I will boot the game up just to fly around and look at stuff to this day as a way to relax.

so yeah you should play Gravity Rush 2. and yes, the Xenoblades are great too, great taste tbh. they’re so mechanically crunchy that I can play them for hours


Ngl it’s been a long time but a mixture of grinding like hell and maxing out damage related stones for pretty much everyone

But I love that game an abnormal amount so I wouldnt recommend that, 500k is more than enough damage for anything that isn’t post-game


that’s wild that it doesn’t just give you the bonfire teleportation when you reach any bonfire. didn’t realize it had to be that bonfire in particular


About 50 hours into xenoblade chronicles 3 I realized I could pick character order when doing chain attacks. Up to that point I had been going left to right every time.

I went from doing 200k damage per chain attack to 17 mil lol


It’s not, he was arrested in November, he was given his sentence a few hours ago.


Yuji Naka hasn’t had anything to do with sonic in like. Decades at this point you’re good if that’s what you’re worried about



If threads doesn’t allow for chronological timeline of just the people you follow and hashtags that actually do something then I doubt it tbh lol


This is the answer imo if you have the budget. This completely cured my carpal tunnel. Opened up my shoulders, let me get better posture and it’s a dream for people who like to tinker with tech





Fun little crossover: it's an anime, but being built in a game engine!

this has been my longest-lasting phone game by a significant margin. I love that it’s portrait mode so I can play a game while holding a phone the way God intended


so many of the replies to this post are so embarrassing lol. just because you can’t tell the difference between good and bad writing doesn’t mean that real writers should be replaced by bots that literally produce a facsimile of written content, as opposed to content with a point, which an LLM can’t actually do.

like you think you’re looking at bad writing, but when the robots start churning out shit articles you’ll realize that you’d rather have a human than this nonsense


what are y'all pickin up

technically a puzzle game at the same time but that’s an ace attorney pic so you’re probably cool with it


I mean…yea. I know it sucks but willingly giving money to Elon musk is no different from checking it into a black hole and you should probably not




Affirmative Action has had a net positive impact on Asian Americans, given the fact that Asians had the largest college enrollment (59%), more than any other race.

A study from Georgetown University also found that Asian Americans actually benefit from affirmative action. It showed that if colleges only considered test scores, while Asian American enrollment would increase slightly, 21% of Asian Americans admitted under the holistic system would lose their spot.

In short, Asian Americans with lower SAT/ACT scores would give up their admission to Asian Americans with higher test scores. This would potentially affect lower-income Asian Americans, who cannot afford to spend money to prepare for those tests.

That said, your statement is so blatantly silly I’d like to confirm you’re actually arguing in good faith, or just stirring the pot with a hypothetical that absolutely does not happen. Thanks!


That’s not how it worked at all. Affirmative Action actually benefited white women more than any other minority group.

Affirmative Action was never about “lowering treatment for one race vs. another.” It was about evening the playing field. That evening is gone and we have no solution as a replacement. It will demonstrably negative for minority groups (that aren’t white women, lol) all because white people couldn’t stand the idea of not having a leg up in something.

Which, btw, is the reason why your definition of racism is flawed, if not flat out incorrect. There has to be a power imbalance for racism to be real. Me calling someone a cracker doesn’t mean anything compared to the structural inequalities I face as a black person. One of the few structural benefits I did have is gone now thanks to mediocre white people seething. Does that make sense?


first of all, white women have benefited from affirmative action more than any other group. are your female white friends experiencing that same imposter syndrome and distrust? did you even know that that was the case? did they? most POC snap back at the white people that question their credentials, not take our hurt feelings out on one of the most effective social justice policies in American history.

second of all, as an actual person of color who was one of 5 POC out of 478 people to get their masters degree in my program, i’d love to learn more about how AA caused more of the problem it’s meant to address. hard to get imposter syndrome when you’re still too disadvantaged to get actual opportunities, lmfao.

also I’m not gonna lie, you saying “blacks” makes me highly doubt you have friends of color regardless. if you do I’m surprised they haven’t told you that using that as a term is uh. I’m gonna go with “eyebrow-raising”


how is affirmative action as a concept contributing to “current racism against another group”?



I haven’t finished it yet but i absolutely love Harvestella. It’s barely a farming sim, more like a Final Fantasy game with farming elements inside it, but I really really enjoyed it.

My favorite of all time is Rune Factory 4. God the amount of time I spent on that game is obscene lmao. I dunno what really makes it unique that I love it so much, maybe the bigger focus on dungeon crawling to go with the farming, but yeah, huge huge fan. Also Forte was so cute.

I didn’t like RF5 nearly as much, but I bought it twice (Switch and PC) because it’s a miracle it even came out and I wanted to support that. For those who don’t know, Neverland Co., the company that developed Rune Factory (and Lufia!) went bankrupt after Rune Factory 4. But then Marvelous hired most of the people on that team, which led to Rune Factory 4 Special, then Rune Factory 5, and now Rune Factory 6 and a spin-off that just got announced! Those sorts of comeback stories make me very happy. I’m really hoping these next two games allow them to refine their 3D engine.

Temtem Showdown: Launch Trailer | Humble Games
this is shrimpteresting. it's literally just Temtem's ranked PvP mode, standalone, completely for free, akin to Pokemon Showdown. You get the normal ranked rewards added to your account if you own the actual Temtem game (and it links automatically). And it shares a ladder with the full game, so you can play against people who already own it.
