Families of Uvalde victims sue Activision, say Call of Duty is 'the most prolific and effective marketer of assault weapons in the United States'
  • It's still not a convincing one though. If it wasn't this weapon used, it would have been another, regardless of where the perp first saw it. I'm not a fan of Activision, but this isn't on them.

  • Families of Uvalde victims sue Activision, say Call of Duty is 'the most prolific and effective marketer of assault weapons in the United States'
  • Oh, I'm not disagreeing at all. Even with all the evidence that video games aren't the problem, it's a convenient scapegoat to point a finger at while ignoring those who actually need to be held accountable.

  • Families of Uvalde victims sue Activision, say Call of Duty is 'the most prolific and effective marketer of assault weapons in the United States'
  • Every time I think we've moved passed this as an argument, it pops back up. They'll blame anything but those they should be holding accountable.

  • Families of Uvalde victims sue Activision, say Call of Duty is 'the most prolific and effective marketer of assault weapons in the United States'
  • People have always blamed video games for violence, even all the way back to Columbine. This isn't a new argument.

  • Sims 4 devs assemble team to focus on fixing bugs and upping performance
  • I did the same thing. It may have been because there weren't as many dlcs and expansions, but it just felt really dull. Plus it didn't have the completely open world like 3 did. Sitting through all those loading screens every time you wanted to go somewhere was a pain.

  • Sims 3, with all its faults, is the golden age. Long live the mods.

  • Microsoft to release next 'Call of Duty' game on subscription service, source says
  • This is why I like GamePass. There's a bunch of games on there that I probably wouldn't play otherwise. And yeah, they're not all great, but I've found some that I really enjoy.

  • What are your favourite lesser known websites?
  • As far as art style goes, I'm not sure to be honest. Based on the artist's YouTube page of their drawing process, it seems akin to making something in Paint.
    In general, I guess you could call it slice of life? iirc the "floor" is supposed to be on a spaceship, just showing the day to day activities.

  • What are your favourite lesser known websites?
  • It's a pretty simple concept with a lot of references, but Floor796 is fun to browse around when I'm bored. There's a few interactive bits too, if you can find them.

  • In what subtle (or significant) ways has your hometown changed since your childhood?
  • Every time I visit, I know where less and less places are, because they keep closing older places and opening new ones. It really doesn't feel like my hometown anymore. Last time I wanted to visit the music shop where I would practice piano and have recitals, only to drive by to see that it had been closed for a couple years.

  • Trump Reflexively Asks Michael Cohen To Silence Michael Cohen
  • How bad is it that I was absolutely going to believe this until I saw the source.

  • The Real Reason Your Favourite Game Studios Are Getting Closed Instead Of Sold
  • The IP reason is such a stupid argument in my opinion, because most of the time the company either ends up doing fuck all with it, or teases with a possible return only to say "lol jk nevermind".

  • What foods and drinks would you buy more often if money was not an issue?
  • Chips. I love chips, I like trying different flavors, but these days, justifying 5-7 dollars a bag for times other than parties and get togethers is getting harder and harder to do.

  • Has anyone else ever set a special ringtone for that one boss you dread will call you? If so, what was it?
  • Back when I was on call, I had the bridge number set to this tune from Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs. It fit the mood I was in when answering, especially when it was 3 in the morning.

    Texas sues Biden administration for right to discriminate against LGBTQ+ students
  • I just want a stable power grid, but noooooo, gotta keep the people who are different from them from just existing.

  • What celebrity has actually been a positive influence in your life?
  • I really like Adam Savage as well. The tour he did of Grant Imahara's shop was very touching.

    It seems like kind of an obvious answer, but Mister Rogers. I grew up watching him on PBS, and he was always so kind and gentle, and he always has good lessons and reminders to be had. I still watch his show whenever I'm feeling down and don't want to get out of bed. For me, they're motivating to get up and do something.

  • Please turn off science
  • Not from what I've seen, unfortunately. Getting new instances to federate, at least from smaller, non Lemmy instances, is a bit of a pain. In the past I've done some testing with the two mags I currently own, and it looks like things don't always properly federate.
    I've also noticed the same goes for voting. There's been more than once I've seen differing upvotes/downvotes on a thread depending on whether you're looking at it from kbin vs mbin.

  • Please turn off science
  • Mbin has a very similar look and feel, aside from a couple of cosmetic things.
