In less successful news, I diverted a patrol away from our secret hq, then doubled back in a stolen truck to move the HQ somewhere safer. Then a noticeboard fell over, killing me.

I just ambushed five nazis at a roadblock, finished them with my revolver, stole a machine gun and helmet, and left behind a bomb that killed the nazis that came to investigate the gunfire

Oh wait, three actually. I forgot I had to do a news thing on it. okay, that's more fair. But it's definitely not a roguelike, and not even for wanky technical reasons. Saying I like roguelikes is slander and I will take lethal action

i have been accused of liking roguelikes and writing "loads of articles" about the same one in a row. I wrote two articles about it and it's not a roguelike. 🤷

anyway I've never had lobster or crab. I'd feel ripped off eating either to be honest. Too much shell. Too much dicking around at the table. I feel very self conscious when eating at the best of times, never mind using special tools and making lots of noise.

Sure, I'm probably a hypocrite for saying all this but still eating meat. But I feel like slaughtering an animal is at least SOMEWHAT less grotesque than boiling them alive.

I'm not really sold on the idea that putting them in a freezer is any kinder. "Oh it will sedate them!"

okay, I will believe that is better right after you spend the night in the freezer.

"It's so people don't get sick!!!!"

Yeah, we have that with other animals too. Unless you're claiming that killing a lobster will INSTANTANEOUSLY turn its flesh into poison, come the fuck off it. There's nothing stopping you from killing it first, it's just pretentious chef bullshit.

I feel like you don't have to be vegan to think that "hmmm, but, scientifically, do they *really* even FEEL pain? :thaenkin: " is an amazingly shitty "defence" of boiling lobsters alive.

Ambushed a roadblock. Four dead fascists. The world continues to improve.

Ed Miliband has had five years and he still hasn't made a chat show called Chaos With Ed Miliband, what a waste of space

I'm annoyed that I accidentally released a captive because some sort of bug prevented me from shooting him. But I think my mate must have shot the other one, so this was definitely a win.

Show thread

Quite pleased with myself for this mission. Delivered supplies to the resistance. My lone backup disappeared and someone started shooting. I ran, then circled back to look for my militiaman. He'd been shot, so I dragged him away to patch him up.

While I was trying to steal a vehicle we could escape in he started shooting at someone. I leaned round the corner of the car and shot his attacker with my revolver. Stole his gun, stole the car, drove through the woods to safety.

Neighbours have been having a party all day, so I guess I can pretty much write off the next six months of my life.

@sinvega I'd say a PC is not "the better platform", because it is not a platform in the sense a console is, but an accessing tool for all things digital and online, and a such does not force you into a hedged garden. Only a PC enables you too choose your level of freedom (for the price of being technically more complicated). Which is why certain corporations are working really, really hard to take that away. Which brings us back to the platforms which are accessed by PC, Steam, Gog, Itch & Co,

@sinvega Platforms that hedge you by different margins.
But, apart of these on an everyday level unfortunately very theoretical musings, kill snobism and play the game you want, on any platform you want, and you can call yourself gamer (if you want this very questionable label, that is).

Plus, y'know, from a practical standpoint, if you can afford a non-terrible PC, that gives you access to countless playable games either cheap or even outright free. That's the only reason the PC is "better", and even that doesn't matter that much when you can get consoles and games second hand (and hopefully backwards compatibility will improve, but ugh)

It's just tragic to see someone rightly call out the tosser vibe of the platform fanboy, then dive directly into the rich prick swamp of "be a connoissuerrrrr buy everything"
