@pattheflip such a good show, watched it with my mum before it left CR, glad to see it back

Comics / You Are Obsolete 

@RobF my favorite one of those was a mid 90s novel that swerved into an end times Christian screen against.. well everything that wasn’t made of wood I guess, including barcodes and ID cards - the devils tattoo

Industry / Abuse / Hellbird 

@RobF @wohali What gets me is they won't even be bothered risking the mildest of ripples and unfollowing the shitheads.

Never mind that our social interactions are ruled by The Algorithm, and any random platform change may throw a post up by an abuser right in the face of your followers just because of the network you maintain.

@RobsteinOne My advice, as someone who's been there, is.. don't do it if you don't absolutely have to. I wish I still had my GBA SPs, my PSP, my Gamecube, my Xbox, my Dreamcast.. but I can't justify buying "new" ones and finding the games again so I'm just left with a mild background-level amount of regret.

And.. Corporations are destroying our videogame history to make an extra buck with the push to digital and streaming, let's not help do it ourselves.

@halcy and when I say “use a stick” I guess I haven’t actually touched a fighter in years because my stick is old and 360/PC only, so maybe “used” is more appropriate :)

@halcy see I use a stick. SF4’s easy input change kinda broke my ability to do real DP inputs too.

@RobF Nothing makes me want to buy multiple physical copies more than the shitshow that is family sharing on the PS4, Switch, and (somewhat) Steam. Is it any better on Xbox One? (I forget if you have one for some reason)

@RobF I'm just counting the days until a large tech shop unionizes, hits a management wall over conditions, strikes, and is instantly replaced with scabs who don't give a fuck.

@RobF Can I just say that you somehow manage to make your games look like they're running on an OLED screen even on this LCD?

@pattheflip me when my (ex) wife used to beat me at Tekken by button mashing.

"THAT'S NOT FAIR! YOU'RE NOT DOING IT RIGHT!"

So it turns out that the announcement of Bloodlines 2 *wasn't* my favorite non-dev news from GDC.

It was that Cara Ellison is writing for Bloodlines 2.

Suddenly aware that I don't know where my Bust-a-Groove disc is.

Discovered the power of "powercfg -requests" and am both pleased with the utility and the pun I just made.

@jk See also "whiz" or "whiz kid" when describing anyone who can operate a computer.

Now I'm really curious if it was used in the centre page spread (IN COLOUR!!!) we got in The S*n because my (ex) wife and I got married in an ~international romance~ after meeting on a MUD.

Don't worry though, I haven't joined the normals - I'm only researching drywall anchors because I need to mount my Vive Lighthouses in what would be a normal person's dining room.

I've been radio silent for a few weeks now because work, holidays, and buying a house.

Now I'm watching YouTube videos comparing drywall anchors. Home ownership!

@fasterthanlime Hurrah for iLok :|

Back in the day I was weirdly proud when X-Force released some of my plugins. Probably wouldn't have been as amused if it wasn't for the fact they were actually free.

@revenant This was me when someone who worked on that Disney dinosaur CG movie (was it called.. Dinosaur?) said they were using my (crappy) Renderman .rib file tool, probably around the same age.

@jk that reminds me I bought an RP255 for my ex years ago, I wonder if my son still has it/remembers he has it..
