It's actually a pretty good game and the card system works well for it. I got it on a big discount few months ago and was surprised to get so hooked on it even despite the marvel part of it that I have no interest in.

Tbh I felt less at the mercy of RNG in Midnight Suns than I did in XCOM.

I'm a big fan of Levine and his games and I'm looking forward to Judas. It might not be a huge mainstream hit but I think it's going to be fantastic for some people, or at least interesting for everyone to see what has he been cooking all these years. It definitely sounds like his dream game he wanted to make for a while now

Was there any info on when it might be finished?

Is this the first crossover they've done?

Why not go for fully Godot app at that point as opposed to just for GUI?

Sounds like the original creators of these games should get the rights back for chump change.

When you’re working with purely digital products nothing is going to stay around for very long

Illuminating and very worrying statement in this context

I tried mint and had some issues with nvidia drivers, which seemed out of the ordinary since other people were fine with it. I tried PopOS next and it was fine (Bottles had some issues but games through Steam or Heroic worked out of the box basically).

Sorry, with 'docker drives' I meant 'docker volumes or bind mounts'. I dont have a lot of experience with it yet so I'm not sure if I'm going to run into problems by mapping them directly to a NAS, or if I should have local copies of data and then rsync / syncthing them into the NAS. I heard you can theoretically even run docker on the NAS but not sure if that's a good idea in terms of its longevity or performance.

Is the list of "approved HDDs" just a marketing/support thing or does it actually affect performance?

Thanks for the answers! The DS2xx series looks like something I could start with. DS223 is a bit cheaper and has 3 USB ports so that could be useful, I'd guess I don't need to focus on performance since it's mostly just for personal data storage and not some intensive professional work.

Could be a regional thing but Synology HDDs are around 30% more expensive than 'normal' WD/Seagate/Toshiba that I'm seeing at first glance. Maybe it does make it up for quality and longevity but afaik HDDs are pretty durable if they are maintained well, and I imagine them being in RAID1 should be good enough security measure?

Considering the price of the diskstation itself it's all quickly adding up to a price of a standalone PC so i'm trying to keep it simple since it's for a relatively low performance environment.

Hmm, I bought a used laptop on which I wanted to tinker with linux and docker services, but I kinda wanted to separate the NAS into a separate advice to avoid the "all eggs in one basket" situation (also I can't really connect that many hard drives to it unless I buy some separately charged USB disk hubs or something, if those exist and are any good?)

However I do see the merit in your suggestion considering some of the suggestions here are driving me into temptation to get a $500 NAS and that's even without the drives... that's practically more than what my desktop is worth atm.

What are the craziest misconceptions you’ve heard about programming from people not familiar with it?

As someone who spends time programming, I of course find myself in conversations with people who aren’t as familiar with it. It doesn’t happen all the time, but these discussions can lead to people coming up with some pretty wild misconceptions about what programming is and what programmers do....

Oh you have an issue on Linux? Just try a different distro

(this one hurts more because it technically usually works)

Do people actually self host mail? I remember watching some conference that said it is basically a full time job nowadays to get your mails actually delivered if you're not one of the big providers. Much easier to pay one of them and just use a custom domain instead, and I can easily see this being a thing for the fediverse one day too (assuming it ever gets big enough)

You are right, but is it any different for games like Ark, Conan, VRising, Rust or any other sandbox builder focused on multiplayer? It's always just a farm-build-collect-repeat cycle. It's why I get bored of them easily at least, the only games in that genre that can usually keep my attention are Factorio and Valheim.

It's still hard to believe it's been 3 full years since it released and we only got one new biome since then (and yeah I know it had other smaller updates but considering its success and potential I was hoping for much much more from them).

Kaldo,

Mistlands update was the only big one, maybe hearth and home can be called big due to the new foods and combat changes but honestly, it's a regular monthly patch in any other early access game. I've seen more additions for Against the Storm in a span of few patches than I did in Valheim in all 3 years combined.

And yet they still want them, so there must be more to the story. I also don't understand why since I have dynamic IP address in EU, unless they can match the ownership to a person at any given time in the past its not useful info.

I often can't tell if they are just saying stuff like that to cope or they are really that optimistic/naive. It's a similar mentality to people constantly giving benefit of the doubt to kickstarter / early access projects that have like a 1% chance of actually living up to the made promises.

They are still being vague about the monetization (it does seem like it will have MTX) and I'm am completely certain that designing it with co-op in mind is going to ruin the singleplayer vibe and progression. Hopefully I'm proven wrong though

He was my favorite part of the show! If only the rest of the cast/characters were as good/interesting

It could be a "boil the frog slowly" situation

If its by the developer of NPxSB why not just update that one, or am I misunderstanding something in the title?

That's what I tried first but also had a lot of confusing experiences with its file hierarchy, prefixes, lutris/wine/proton and all of these. I was hoping bottles lives up to its promise of "one click installation with community install scripts" instead. This is my first real attempt at linux, I didn't even know what flatpak is until a week ago, I used the appimage for heroic which was also very confusing for a time. Starting to think I might be just too dumb/inpatient for it tbh, it's just one issue after another - even simple stuff like games ran from steam with proton have lots of issues that aren't reported on protondb.

It's a Dell laptop with an Nvidia GPU. I tried Linux Mint but I'm having constant OS-breaking freezes after gaming for a while and it's happening on 2 different games so far (completely unresponsive, and it's with steam games so no custom tinkering in lutris/wine). Thinking I'll just try a fresh install but with PopOS when I have time.

Thanks for the summary, it all does make a bit more sense to me now but first time I had to spend half an hour just to find BG3 saves in Heroic due to the seemingly duplicates of folder structures all over the place lol
