  1. With Flash being taken behind the shed out back at the end of the year, it really does feel like the golden age of the internet is officially over, with the internet now turning entirely into a corporate hegemony with no attempt for anything that isn't monetized.
    Is this how the cowboys felt?

      One of the reasons my windows 7 computer is still being used by me is for flash files.


      Last version of walfas create.swf is saved on that hard drive.

      Anyone that would make flash games is now probably making phone games instead, with in-app purchases of course.

      In the twilight days of flash games microtransactions were pretty common, so that's almost certain.

  2. Why is GOG hellbent on sending me deals that look like spam?

    1. Gyokuyoutama


      GoG's management has went downhill in the last year.  Galaxy 2.0 is a joke.  Support is almost worse than Steam.


      They still dig up lots of games that I thought vanished from the face of the Earth and they still do a good job making them run hassle-free on modern OS's so I'll still support them but I don't like the trajectory.

  3. nothing quite says "pandemic" like my boss at the dojo saying he might have to lay me off.

      Dojo like karate?

      Yep. Might be the thing that gets me into a better job where I can actually have a social life again, so I welcome it.

  4. lord help me i'm back on tf2's bullshit. Currently running Comanglia's toaster config and I'm only getting 30 FPS. Any suggestions?

      I've heard good things about masterconfig.

      Ritualized? Man come on the worst that can happen from being ritualized is getting clap from the stripper dad bought you for your 18th birthday.

      It gets worse when you have to convert the guy to a fraction after.

      Decimated is pretty bad if your compiler always rounds down tho

      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.  Hundreds baited by obvious pony threads.  I watched posters struggle to obtain worthless fireaxes by completing arbitrary challenges in a dying game.  All those moments will be gone now, like tears in the rain.

      I still whack my jag every night, in remembrance of what was lost. Among other reasons.

  7. Cracked open a monster ultra zero recently, now can't stop listening to Metallica/Alice in Chains and complaining about how much better games were back then

      I used to pick up packs of those from the Dollar General and have one of those a day back when I was no-lifing Warframe with the boys last year, those were the best times I will ever have on this earth.

      I'm going to say something that may be controversial but I'm prepared to accept the backlash.


      Team Fortress 2 is a better game than Fortnite.

    In Which Rynjin Shills Himself

    Apart from pseudo-choreographing it irl, I'd search some sparring matches up online. For pure striking, do Karate and Kickboxing, for grappling do Judo and BJJ, and for a mix try Sambo and MMA. Kung Fu guys rarely spar as a rule.

    fucking sold EDIT: Just gonna drop my thoughts from my first impressions as some chucklefuck with full-time employment as a sifu/whatever the hell my dojang's equivalent is 1: Good idea using Kung Fu, namely five animals as your martial arts base - There's a lot of diversity in those combined arts which allows for a lot of freedom of explanation - Although I personally found it difficult to read my way through the initial combat scene. Maybe run it through with a friend while trying to keep a straight face. 2: The concept of some esoteric psychonaut-fu that lacks the usage of Qi automatically puts you in my good graces and tactfully covers the Qi energy field bullshit side of martial arts rather well 3: I have taught six-year-olds. The fact they managed to sit entirely silent for what in writing sounds like several hours is what most would consider a miracle. I need to learn this style of disciplinary action that hopefully doesn't involve a bamboo stick.
