    I don't think the VR "Live Combat Game" should be a thing.  Don't make a "realistic/visceral" game for something like that.

    Oh Florida Man, don't ever change.

    My only issue that's preventing me from getting the Switch: Their current available library of games isn't appealing enough for me to buy the device and their games.


    Re AI: My brain can't get around the idea that there's a site with that many videos of porn.


    Re safe-search: If you use Bing, don't ever turn off safe-search. Even the most innocent of things turns up Rule 34 content in Bing without safe-search. *yikes*


    (Might be a way to get some prompts for Jon's OTS show, though.)

    Just a note about KSP:


    -Most people still playing have mods installed


    -Mods usually break the game when a new update for the game itself comes out


    -A new update was pushed through Steam this weekend.


    -While easy to revert to an older version on Steam, I was a bit miffed


    -I can't speak for everyone, but I left a negative review recently in response to the update, not some silly controversy I knew nothing about until watching this video.

    "I dont love the idea or practice of us paying so other platforms cant play, 

    or use a certain gun in a game or do a certain level"


    Xbox, really?  You do realize your daddy Microsoft 

    is kicking Linux owners of Minecraft to the curb with their

    "BETTER TOGETHER WITH ALL PLATFORMS EXCEPT LINUX" 

    crossplay plan for minecraft... right?

      Except Apple MacOS (formerly OSX - back to the old name they had before) and anything before Windows 10, too.


      Get the Minecraft "Bedrock" engine (doesn't use Java) working on every variant of Linux with the ability to automatically deliver updates from Microsoft to every variant of Linux, and they'll probably move there, too, but they cannot predict that environment enough to develop and continually maintain the engine for it.


      Think about the environments. Windows 10's Store environment: Predictable. XBox (similar to Win10): Predictable. iOS: Predictable. Android: Predictable. FireTV (similar to Android): Predictable. GearVR (similar to Android): Predictable. AppleTV (similar to iOS): Predictable.


      Linux? Every installation of Linux can be wildly different than another. That's called a "Hostile Environment". They are already handling their engine on so many platforms. It's a bit of a stretch to add Linux to the mix. Most of the things that work natively (not emulated) in Linux usually exist on one other platform if at all. It's too costly.


      It is well-known that you do not get Linux for native gaming. You get it for a custom environment. You're pretty much on your own with making things work on it.


      (Sony's editions of Minecraft have the Bedrock engine, but Sony refuses to allow crossplay even though we already know it's just a configuration setting.)

      And yet small devs like 7 Days To Die get their games working GREAT on linux.


      Other engines manage to do what you say is too hard for Microsoft.. what, are MS just stupider than other devs?  They cant figure out what others have been doing for years?  Do they get blue parking spaces because they are Coding Impaired handicapped to the point that they cant code what other not-stupid devs code?


      I dont think thats it- I dont think the devs at Microsoft sit at the kiddie coders table.

      I dont think they are so stupid that they fail at coding what others have been doing for years.

      They choose to code for every platform

      except the only practical competition for home & office PC os. ... what an amazing coincidence


      OpenGL exists for a reason.

      And there is a reason MS chooses to spend tons of man hours developing a similar performance lockout proprietary GL instead
