Well, this is interesting.

The gaming industry is nuts.

Just got an email about an event for “news announcements. and content updates across 150+ titles”

150 titles!?

I’m no marketing guru but…that seems like an overload that will just cause lots to get swallowed up.

The online backlash to amuses me tremendously. I started building a similar open-source (non-AI, local only) thing for a month ago.

It would take screenshots and create a timeline video of your day. It also enabled searching across your past usage of the computer.

The inspiration was an open-source macOS app called "Rem" which does the same thing.

Ah well, I guess I'll abandon that then, as it's going to be seen as toxic thanks to .

@popey i think there’s a big difference between what you would do (and i assume open source?) that everyone could see and audit and see it’s entirely local, to one fed into an AI black box controlled by MSFT

Hilarious. Some random ass paid-for blue tick on X said Microsoft were looking to buy Valve, and loads of people fell for it. News articles even got written on it today.

Totally false, it’s news from a leak that was from 2023 (that i wrote about back then https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2023/09/microsoft-keep-your-filthy-hands-off-valve/) and is not a thing that’s happening.

This is the problem with paid “verification”, people see the blue tick and think they’re trustworthy.

I might need to book Friday the 5th off work, as I will likely be drinking heavily through the night as the votes come in!

Oh wow, the RPS team are clearly throwing some shade around with their recent articles after the IGN purchase 😅, after Alice was laid off.

Multiple one-liner articles following a "best Alices" gaming article. One article was just "buy my old chair" lmao.

Thinking more on all this shite and search engines. It just makes RSS and social media following more important than ever before right?

Ways to properly follow what you want.

Good thing @gamingonlinux has and RSS feed: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/rss/

Annoyingly just realised you can't mute a post someone else tags you in on Mastodon, only your own.

What. Annoying.
