Really? I thought the loudness wars peaked around the mid 2000's/2010's. I feel like it's become less prominent in the last few years

EA's BioWare will lay off 50 and cut ties with unionized Keywords playtesting group (venturebeat.com)

Neither the layoffs nor breaking ties with a playtesting company that knows their worth in the market sound like they're going to help BioWare make RPGs that can compete with Baldur's Gate 3, formerly a BioWare series.

BioWare actually made Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 lol

Yeah! I don't want other companies to remake Baldur's Gate 3 because it's a great game, I want other studios to put the amount of polish that BG3 has into their own games.

It's very nostalgic to me, I remember watching it a ton as kid on VHS. It's not GOOD but I think of it fondly

Yeah! I saw The Room for the first time last month in an art house theatre it was great

The first ~2 minutes are my favourite usually, I like the buildup a lot more than the actual porn most of the time

It's me! I used to practise a lot more but now most I do is drink tea and light incense hehe

That looks nice! I played the demo a bit and it feels a bit clunky still but that makes sense if it's in early access, but with some more polish it seems really cool! c:

TIL why those with autism avoid eye contact; an overactive subcortical system, combined with an imbalance in the excitatory and inhibitory systems, can make eye contact feel like 'burning' (www.sciencedaily.com)

Direct gaze - that is, eye contact with another person - causes the subcortical system to overload, and the parts of the brain that deal with arousal and calming are failing to strike a balance. The end result is that direct eye contact triggers a physiological response which makes it physically uncomfortable to maintain eye...

I don't know if I would describe it for myself as 'burning'. Making eye contact to me feels overly intimate in a way that feels uncomfortable with people I'm not close to

The problem is, we can't have a free and happy society with Nazi's in it. Yeah sure wanting Nazi's dead is bad, but "reorganizing society to increase happiness and wellbeing" isn't something that will happen quickly, but still they continue to exist.

Is using terms like 2SLGBTQQIA+ insensitive?

So I’ve recently been trying to use the term “2SLGBTQQIA+” over “LGBTQ” as it seems more inclusive, and includes first nation peoples beliefs on sexuality and gender, as well as including and differentiating “queer” from “questioning”. It’s not perfect (still combines A for ally and A for Asexual) but I think...

I don't know if it's insensitive but it does seem unintuitive. Yeah "LGBTQ+" doesn't include everything in it's name but it's a short acronym that's easy to remember and say. If I'm in the middle of a conversation I probably can't remember 2SLGBTQQIA+. At the end of the day it's just language to communicate ideas, and I think LGBTQ+ gets the point across clearly. Alternatively you can just say Queer.

Please delete empty, opportunistic magazines created during the rexit

There are a fair number of totally empty magazines created during rexit, with no threads, yet a fair number of subscribers (because the name matches a popular sub from Reddit). I clicked on one this morning, because I saw it in random magazines side bar section. No threads. Created a month ago by a user who hasn't posted a...

Lunyan,
Lunyan avatar

Yeah I feel similarly. I created a magazine and was excited about moderating it even, but I'm not very much of a poster, more a lurker and commenter. But yeah it has a few subscribers now so I should probably just make some posts as a start at least

I think I joined Mastodon around September or October 2022? But I hadn't heard of Kbin until a few weeks ago :p
Actually I wasn't familiar with the fediverse at all outside of Mastodon before then

Businesses consider those the same thing unfortunately :/

This is why pirating games that aren't available to be bought anymore is never wrong

Bij1. Ik weet dat het niet de grootste partij is en ik ben bang dat er een kans is dat ze geen zetels kunnen krijgen, maar het is de partij met de standpunten die voor mij het meest belangrijk zijn.

Devlog #0: What is Cake Quest? (youtu.be)

Hey! Here is the first Devlog for the game Cake Quest, a quirky fantasy turn-based RPG inspired by games like Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy and Undertale I'm doing the music and sound design for. We're a small team of 5 people and started working together after meeting each other at a game jam earlier this year. With the game...

Haha you make a good point! I updated the thread with more info 😄

Yeah it was my first gamejam too! So much chaos while very sleepdeprived haha but it's so much fun
Thank you! c: (huh maybe the bug is because I use Kbin? idk, weird)
