ROFL An excerpt from an article- Marge starts something; AOC and Rep Crockett 'Finish Her'.

"I'm just curious, just to better understand your ruling," Crockett said to Comer. "If someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody's bleach-blond, bad-built, butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities, correct?"

Marge got read to filth and I was scream laughing about it for a while today!

Again… why do people not favourite posts? More often than not I go to favourite posts and the counter pops up next to the button and I see I’m the only one ☹️
Especially weird when the post has a bunch of boosts too 😅

I’m sure it must make the poster feel good to have their post favourited, right?

@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@tashen Boosting is more effective to make a post have reach on the Fediverse, so that is what most people do instead.

I'm a chronic favorite user...Mostly as I use it in the following ways: I see you, freaking cool, sensible opinions are welcome, etc. I enjoy getting the favorites as it gives me some serious dopamine!

I had an easy day today! Got my grocery shopping and bill paying done. Watched insym play some games, and played Nier Automata (so far 9S's story is pretty in line with 2B's story). There are minor differences in respect to parts when 2B was disabled or fighting offscreen, 9S was acting as support.

Tomorrow, I'll get laundry and more gaming done as I will enjoy my days off!

@Dennis5891 I only hacked the enemies who were golden as the other ones are pretty easy to dispose of with Ranged shots! I love being able to access all those locked chests via hacking...It was driving me crazy.

So I was checking out Assassin's Creed Shadows looking into what new controversy was going on, and I agree with tons of people about this game.
The main character being black is probably done to draw attention to that specifically and create dialog and drama, to distract from the stupidity of the pricing, slow game play, and graphics that look like its from a generation ago.

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@Dennis5891 That's what I suspect as well; As Ubisoft will inevitably shit the bed in the pricing, or gameplay. The graphics are fine, a core thing for me is that a game visually communicates everything to me in a coherent way.

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@Dennis5891 The pricing is exactly what I expected...Really bad, their standard awful price range!

For some, the graphics matter, for those prices it better damn well be crisp as hell! As it's true modern consoles should have higher fidelity than consoles before them (unless it's intentionally retro like Crow Country).

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@Dennis5891 There's always something with Ubisoft, they might even have pre-order exclusives for every major distributor of physical and digital media. Of course this would be the case. ROFL 🙃

I am totally floored by the bold, drunk on LLM idea that Slack by Saleforce has right now: They want to compromise the privacy of customer data to train their implementation of an LLM.

This is beyond cursed because Salesforce has the audacity to make this scheme an opt-out instead of op-in to maximize the data accumulation.

I hope the uproar this will generate makes Slack step the hell back!

@ekongkaar At the moment there are only glowing articles about it (those who want to stay in the good graces of corporations); I found the potential for not good things amongst a few computer security company workers.

@ekongkaar It does worry me because there is a malicious use for LLMs called Prompt Injection Attacks. These are remarkably effective forms of attack for malicious actors. As we are in a gold rush phase for those techbros shilling the usage of AI (LLMs in disguise). They will not have made their constructs safer; this is still a very real threat. You can see why, knowledgeable people are concerned about this...Malicious actors could cause chaos.

@ekongkaar It's a massive betrayal for short term gain, which is such a puzzling blow to take from a business partner to sudden competitor! I can imagine you being shocked into a state of not being able to fully process this dramatic shift. I genuinely hope that your situation improves.

Gotta resist watching the new Assassin’s Creed trailer.

Ubisoft is way too good at pulling me in with good premises and cool cinematic trailers. I’ll wait for the gameplay trailers and damn it, I am going to do all I can to not get suckered in. Ubisoft and Bethesda are damn good at baiting me. 🙃

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@tashen Those cinematic trailers can be so damn tempting, but after years of seeing the trailer and having the game in my possession...I've been inoculated enough to resist being tempted. The live gameplay often never lives up to manufactured hype.

I'm going to be highly skeptical of anything Ubisoft puts out there; reviews are the only thing which will sway me these days. Or first-hand experience with demos or early access titles.

Picked this up from Amazon cheap, I remember wanting to play it when it came out, but promptly forgot all about it. Was reminded the other day when the news came out about the studio closing. Feel kinda sad

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@COMPU73E That's a shame! I remember this game is decent (has some glitches and other tech issues) however that didn't stop me from rolling credits after about 30 hrs. Tango Gameworks being closed was the worst decision they made with those studio closures, aside from Arkane Austin getting shuddered!

I couldn't be less interested in any future UBI games if I tried, they might as well go the whole way, fire all their developers and just let AI generate their games from a template

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@COMPU73E Ugh, this is unsurprising but also disappointing! LLMs can't replace people as those things literally need to be fed the works of others to produce something semi-sane. Without writers and creatives making stuff, LLM data will become stale and rot...Just like Ubisoft has.

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@COMPU73E It did look fine to me as well, but it’s a rare stroke of genius for a company like Ubisoft.

WanderingInDigitalWorlds, (edited )
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@COMPU73E Exactly, I wasn’t fooled for a second because it was just a random chance thing for them. Jedi Fallen Order had been in a similar situation, it was just a public image bandaid which could easily be ripped off. As a company, EA were never changing because profits and dark pattern tactics are in the game!

@COMPU73E I've taken to checking gaming sites. For the most part those major sites end up catching a lot of news related to new game announcements without the twenty pounds of filth heaped on top.

I'm so glad that I deleted my Twitter account, as I know that it would hurt my mental health in the future due to Space Karen being the worst. 🙃

I've worked at two different recycling facilities. The US is #1 at paper recycling. However, my point is that you can't recycle plastic. You can't. If someone says so, they're talking bullshit. Coca Cola might be able to do it if they're only using their plastic in house, but you can't do it nationally or globally because the chemical composition of plastic is different based on the use and manufacturer. It's all bullshit...

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@wendigo Exactly, it would require a level of standardization which would be such a challenge in the plastic space! Herding cats would be something easier to accomplish than making every company completely standardize the plastic making process so it's universally recyclable.

I wish we could get away from plastic usage completely, as it's wreaking havoc already. Many generations of people will suffer due to the microplastics unleashed in the world and building up in living things.

Lots of dumpster divers at the Winn Dixie. I see them every day because I'm up very early. I'm fine with homeless people. It's gross, but you have to get by somehow. What I'm not fine with are the douches in their retro-rides and nice clothes showing up to grab a free ham because they're too cheap to buy it, and they always see me and offer excuses. Fuck them. What should happen is that Winn Dixie should be donating their "waste" / food to homeless shelters and off-market stores...

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@wendigo Food that is still edible (but can't be sold) does need to be distributed better as it would go a long way to making lives for the homeless or low-income households less difficult! America has a real issue with generating food waste which doesn't help anyone. Nobody should have to dig in a dumpster for their next meal. 😬

We have a Flint Hills Bread Basket around here and for the most part donations are handled well. However, more places need to be incentivized to participate!

My work is making me do an official ADA (disability accommodation) to work from home. They really don’t want me to work from home, even temporarily. Sent the paperwork to my urologist to fill out so we will see how it goes.

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@Melezioh They are basically handing you the path to being free from the in office bullshit (which they arbitrarily decided would become fetch to begin with). I hope your urologist comes through by filling out the paperwork! Legally protected work from home would be a huge win. 😁

I shouldn't snicker at diets and diet fads but I can't help but have a little chuckle at this.

'A new study has debunked the general meal plan behind the Paleo diet, with findings suggesting that some Stone Age people ate a mostly vegan diet.'

@Strider Sometimes that doesn't come through with written text; honey is pretty good for tea and coffee! I like orange flower honey as the hint of citrus flavor gives those hot beverages a zing. However, I also use turbanado sugar too. I find that I need less of it than refined white sugar overall to sweeten my coffee or tea!

My excitement for Crow Country has both increased and decreased after reading James Stephanie Sterling's review on the game! It's a shame that the traps feel like a slap to the face cheap, especially when combat with Guests is balanced well.

https://www.thejimquisition.com/post/crow-country-park-of-darkness-review

WanderingInDigitalWorlds,
@WanderingInDigitalWorlds@mstdn.games avatar

@DesRoin Most demos wouldn't overwhelm the player with many mechanics, as it's suppose to be playable. Traps are a later on mechanic which are random and can cause so much damage; James mentions that there are traps that are hard to expect or even look for.

Traps cause too much damage vs Guests, making them a poorly implemented feature. Still the game embraces more of the good vs bad from classic horror games. They rated the game highly despite traps being a pain point.
