Gets carried away in overly rambly rants about unimportant bullshit, uses fancy words without understanding their meaning, has a complete lack of self awareness.
Likes budgies.

BudgieMania,

I wonder if I'll be even worse in this one

orb dude doesn't seem to be in it so that's already a huge problem for me

BudgieMania,

I mean most probably yeah, but they have also been progressively locking more and more functionalities behind paid tiers.

Now that they have fully penetrated and locked the market, killed any potential competitors, and become the default, I assume their "product" will be to make the free tier become less and less functional while also getting monetized in more annoying ways. If people don't like it maybe they should have known better than to make it the default.

Unfortunate.

BudgieMania,

I don't remember names, but many users around here called this to the letter

Sega sells off Relic Entertainment, will axe 240 jobs (www.gamedeveloper.com)

Canada-based studio Relic Entertainment, which recently released Company of Heroes 3, did receive some good news in the midst of these layoffs. The company announced on X (formerly Twitter) that it is becoming an independent studio thanks to the help of “an external investor” who went unnamed.

BudgieMania,

damn, I knew that Sega had had a few big blunders lately, but having to straight up sell Relic is pretty huge... Wonder how their output will look from now on, it's no secret that some of their output under Sega was questionable (primarily Dawn of War 3) and one has to wonder how much of their failings were due to Sega's directive.

BudgieMania,

Wanted Dead

But I don't agree with the general perception that it is "bad", because in all the aspects that actually matter for making an action game fun, it was actually really good. It just got blasted for being lacking (admittedly, very lacking) in production value because somehow we are still giving importance to that in the 2020s...

Anyone else addicted to Balatro right now? (www.playbalatro.com)

I’m not usually a huge fan of rogue-likes, but I’ve enjoyed a few, like Hades. I bought Balatro last week and have been absolutely smashing it ever since then. I love the way the game works, each run being so different even within the same framework, and the feeling when your build starts to go off is so incredibly...

BudgieMania,

when you get a god run with a good synergetic build this game is insanely satisfying

BudgieMania,

Fuck this game, it has damaged my psyche

The amount of times that I had like a 70% chance of drawing what I needed in the last discard alone and didn't, or the amount of times that I had a beautiful synergized build and a boss that disables it appeared by "coincidence", argh.

Yet I can't stop playing it

BudgieMania,

I know that's probably true but it sure as hell doesn't feel like it aaaarrrgh

BudgieMania,

oooooh shit 32v32 is gonna be a beautiful mess in certain maps like Polis Massa or Tantive, I can't wait

This is low key one of my favourite multiplayer games ever so this revival out of nowhere has made me super happy

BudgieMania,

gives me time to get a character ready, also it's not like there aren't a gazillion good games to play right now, there's no hurry

BudgieMania,

excuse me they are scarlet rot swamps now, it's a totally different thing

BudgieMania,

After Prey I'm in, it was a really good effort of a movie and an innovative use of the franchise

BudgieMania,

A slicer is the program that takes a 3D model and "translates it" into the sequence of actions that the printer needs to do to create that model. It is called a slicer because 3D printers build the models in horizontal layers, or in other words, in slices.

Cura is one of the slicer programs available. There are many, divided between slicers for FDM printers (the ones that print from a spool of material) and slicers for resin printers (the ones that print from the disgusting goop that comes in bottles). Your printer tends to be packaged with a suggested one but usually you can use any of the appropriate type.

Slicing is one of the most important parts of 3D printing, and it tends to be the difference between ending up with a pristine figure or a very blurry one. In the most extreme cases, good slicing will be the difference between a successful and unsuccessful print.

BudgieMania,

a threat that doesn't pass even the slightest sniff test, any significant raise in prices would leave them open for a competitor to undercut them.

BudgieMania,

broadband? Isn't this specifically about cable TV, not Internet communication?

BudgieMania,

If you are WB, I can't see how you compare the performance of this game vs the performance of Suicide Squad (which had similar development time) and not rethink your approach to future licensed titles

BudgieMania,

Makes sense, it's now or never probably. IGN is 100% a "content volume over content quality" type of company, the type that would replace a lot of the writing and editorial staff with AI as soon as it became a half-decent alternative. So might as well put pressure on them and exercise bargaining power to get some guarantees while you still have leverage and they still need you.

BudgieMania,

Well shit... The last time I saw memes about how ridiculous an Apple product looked, they were about the AirPods and they ended up being ridiculously popular.

It doesn't matter how silly it looks to us at first, Apple could convince people that wearing dog feces on their face looks cool. Unfortunately.

BudgieMania,

A week?!

The house is going on fire and they wanna take their sweet time finding the most optimal faucet?

That basically confirms every rumor about this. It wouldn't take a week to prepare a statement if it wasn't the tectonic shift it is rumored to be. Damn.

BudgieMania,

At this point it's not even just about it being too expensive for an upstart, it's about being too expensive, too hard, and not at all worth the risk/reward proposition for anyone.
Microsoft is the largest public company in the world and they failed at it! Coming from two successful previous generations of products! Getting in in the market as an unproven entity at this point would be suicidal. Not to speak of the fact that the requirements to enter as a player in the market today are 10x more than when Microsoft entered the market with the XBox. When they unveiled the XBox, a half-decent network infrastructure for gaming was revolutionary; nowadays, an almost-perfect infrastructure with a good digital store is a minimum requirement.

Quite ironically, many of the players that could plausibly throw their name in the hat already have their fingers in gaming in other ways that don't exactly align with launching a domestic console. Apple is currently pushing for more ports of current AAA games to iOS and Mac; Facebook (I refuse to acknowledge their rebrand) is pushing Quest as its main platform and I imagine a traditional console would clash with that; NVIDIA provides hardware for Nintendo, sells gaming hardware for PC and a cloud gaming service, and I guess a console kinda clashes with all of that; Amazon seemed more interested in becoming a publisher than anything else when it comes to gaming; Alphabet probably still has PTSD from the whole Stadia fiasco...

Like, I don't know, I don't see a fuck you-tier company that could plausibly pull it off and at the same time would be interested in it. Tencent maybe? It's not looking good, honestly.

BudgieMania,

Yeah, at the very least it would result in a brutal deterioration of the value proposition of future Playstation hardware. The harsh truth is that a large majority of Playstation players would not consider moving to PC or Switch 2 as a viable alternative, and Sony knows that, and would price accordingly. We all saw what happened the last time they felt they were uncontested in the market when they unveiled the PS3 and its pricing, but this time there would not be a 360 to punish them for it.
There is not a world in which a hypothetical PS6 isn't at least 599 ( without the hardware to make up for it) if it doesn't have a direct competitor. And that would have its own domino effect on Switch and PC hardware pricing... what are you gonna do, go to the overpriced PS6? Pleaaaaase.

BudgieMania,

You know what, you might be right, a second attempt at the concept of a Steam Machine, but this time done in a way that, you know, actually makes sense, with a single super-official SKU, with a lot of abstraction from the "PC" part of it (which Steam Deck has already set the field for) could potentially work.
But they did it so, so fucking badly last time, that I won't believe it until I see it.

BudgieMania,

I've seen Rock sabotage like four Mania main events at this point and I still find it hilarious

BudgieMania,

he should live sing it lmao

BudgieMania,

I am currently one of the scrubs you beat in Tekken 8 on your way to the red ranks
