Epic won’t update Fortnite to run on the Steam Deck. Tim Sweeney says Linux is ‘a terrifically hard audience to serve’ (2022)
  • Why would it not follow that Steam using the same percentage - with lower costs and none of the physical-based risk - is simply greed?

    Most of the retailers mentioned in that article were also digital only and had the exact same or less risk. Steam certainly does a lot to try and get people's money, but they aren't just greedily fucking over Devs for that 30%, that is in fact industry standard.

    I also have no doubt that Epic will enshitify itself and raise its rate closer to 30% after growing.

  • Chappell Roan was asked to perform at a White House Pride event. She said no.
  • She's Gen Z, they REALLY don't like Biden

    That's just not true. While his polling has taken a hit among Gen Z, he still has solid support from about a third of Gen Z, with another third being solidly for Trump, and another third being divided between the various third party candidates.

  • Starfield's latest update draws player ire by sticking a bounty hunting quest behind the Creation Club paywall
  • Because I don't think they're as shitty as people claim? And I understand that Bethesda isn't just a shitty group of corporate managers, but also a team of people who have devoted their lives to these franchises.

  • Starfield's latest update draws player ire by sticking a bounty hunting quest behind the Creation Club paywall
  • Yes you're reading it perfectly, Bethesda as usual actually isn't being as money hungry as they could've.

    People still gonna hate though, that Starfield/Bethesda hate train is way too well entrenched.

  • Spacetop AR laptop / glasses
  • Can vouch for Viture being much more open source friendly, there's a redditor making a plugin for the steamdeck to make it work far better with the Viture's, and Viture has apparently given them access to some things that Xreal has refused.

    Their openness is what won me over for them over other AR glasses. Not only are the willing to help what's effectively a competing software developer, it's also incredibly helpful when the product is so niche, don't have to worry about a company going out of business and your device suddenly becoming a paper weight.

  • Kingdom Come: Deliverance II Saints and Sinners Trailer
  • The first game was funded through Kickstarter and a random Czech millionaire who really liked history. I don't exactly blame them for not having the marketing budget needed to really make to first game as successful as it could've.

    Hopefully, the amazing success of the first game can propell the second into being the Skyrim level RPG success they deserve.

  • YSK: is managed by tankies, and lead lemmy developer is a tankie
  • There's this thing called social democracy,
    and almost every nation in the world has a social democratic party. The left wing of these social democratic parties tend to be full on democratic socialists.

    There's a good chance that the welfare system in whatever country you live in was built by these social democratic parties and influenced by its left wing of democratic socialists.

    Even in the U.S. FDR's Liberalism has been called "bootleg social democracy" by some historians, and his policies were influenced (though often more as concessions than willing adoption) of the more socialist leaning unions of his time. Even today, the progressive wing of the Democratic Party could be described as social democratic, with its leftmost members (Bernie Sanders and AOC) being democratic socialists.

  • YSK: is managed by tankies, and lead lemmy developer is a tankie
  • Idk man democratic socialists seem to have been succeeding in doing it almost globally for a century now.

    Look at the left of any social democratic party and you're bound to find some.

  • tankie censorship problem
  • But you see that small socialist elite proclaims it's doing it for the working class, therefore it's okay now.

    Don't look at those prisons full of attempted trade unionists pls.

  • tankie censorship problem
  • It's called second campism, and it's been happening for a long time, it just used to make more sense when it could actually seem like there was two hegemonic camps during the cold war (still an oversimplistic view).

    Now they just support any regime that's anti-US/the original capitalist camp because they have no hegemonic camp of their own to support, just a broad smattering of authoritarian regimes with completely different ideologies.

  • 42 Democrats Vote With GOP to Sanction ICC Over Netanyahu Warrant
  • It's important to note this was a minority of congressional democrats, only about a quarter, still a quarter of the party too much.

  • As China’s internet disappears, ‘we lose parts of our collective memory’
  • Yeah? Then give me evidence of a large campaign by the U.S government to force companies to change media narrative in the past 2 decades.

    Every time I've seen anything even close, the media companies have screamed bloody murder.

  • Are doctors wrong? 🤣
  • Disregarding the weirdest propaganda meme I have literally ever seen.

    Lei Feng died of very very non-natural causes, supposedly when he was struck by a telephone pole that had been hit by a truck.

    It's also worth noting that he was essentially just a caricature of the "perfect revolutionary" for the Chinese government, it's very hard to establish any historicity to any of the things attributed to him.

  • Andy Kim wins Democratic Senate primary
  • Did any other congresspeople do that? I'm genuinely surprised if not, few things really invoked how that moment felt better than the pictures I saw of him solemnly cleaning the capitol floors.

  • As China’s internet disappears, ‘we lose parts of our collective memory’
  • In the US, the government is just a figurehead for the wealthy elite.

    Odd that the country supposedly being ran by a figurehead for wealthy elites is infinitely better to live in for working class people, than the supposedly completely working class inspired "socialist" country.

    You never found it weird that the Chinese government cracks down harder on independent trade unionists than actual capitalists do here?

  • As China’s internet disappears, ‘we lose parts of our collective memory’
  • The massive difference is that even if that's true, it'd be on the corporations deciding to change narrative independently, not being forced to by the government.

    Outlets like the Guardian are certainly willing to piss off the U.S. government, they were literally one of the publishers of the Snowden files.

  • As China’s internet disappears, ‘we lose parts of our collective memory’
  • I'm pretty sure this is happening in the US because of those pages no longer being profitable to run.

    There's a big difference between that and losing chunks of the internet because of rampant censorship, something we aren't experiencing in the West/US.

  • Why Mexico City’s thirst is causing it to sink: The demand for water in Mexico’s capital is draining its underground aquifers — and fueling some of the fastest subsidence rates in the world.
  • And that lake used to have amazing water infrastructure and a floating city on top of it.

    I really wish they hadn't drained the damn thing, maybe Mexico City could've been the Venice of the America's, but nah, Conquistador gotta Conquest
