  • Now we need the "Thanks Obama" version of this where Todd Howard blames something stupid on himself

  • I just wanna rule to him
  • There is definitely an argument for whether some random guy can take care of an alligator, but if the alligator was raised in captivity, it cannot be safely released into the wild without being trained (and even then I'm not sure).

  • I just wanna rule to him
  • Thanks for posting the link, I completely forgot

  • TIL: The CIA Played a Large Part in the 2011 Syrian Civil War that Killed 350,000 People
  • Problem is that the Green Party isn't even on the ballot in most states, and the two first parties have made sure they can keep it that way.

    I literally can't register as a member of the green party because it's not an option in my state. The only parties that can nominate candidates in my state are the Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, and Legalize Marijuana Now.

  • Tacos.
  • I've said it before I'll say it again. If you need the threat of eternal damnation weighing over you to be a good person, you're not a good person.

  • Norway has some surprising stats
  • I mean, it's still there, they just replaced all the Norse gods with frozen characters. The track layout, and even the ride vehicles are exactly the same.

  • Minecraft is 50% off right now

    In other words, the full price of the game is $40.

    It only cost about $25 back when I bought it, inflation be crazy

    Name a Superhero you just can't stand
  • I thought vision was able to lift the hammer because he wasn't a living being? At least I came to that conclusion because he never possessed the "power of Thor"

  • That's not troubling at all
  • I noticed this back with Bing AI. Anytime you bring up anything related to nonliving sentience, it shuts down the conversation.

  • Name a Superhero you just can't stand
  • Well wait then how come Steve Rogers doesn't have the full kit?

  • Name a Superhero you just can't stand
  • Never read the comics have you?

  • Minecraft Dungeons and Legends 50% off
  • Legends was a bad game that they decided to kill off almost immediately instead of actually fixing, so yes definitely not worth any amount of money.

  • Why are there so many different AMD/Intel CPUs?
  • I had no idea this is how lower end CPUs worked

  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask just got an unofficial PC port
  • My mistake, I misremembered. It was in Unreal Engine, and IIRC it was right before they released the shitty 3D All Stars port.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask just got an unofficial PC port
  • Like the Mario 64 Unreal Engine remake?

    Edit: Unreal Engine, not Unity. My mistake. My point is that unless the project uses absolutely zero intellectual property, such as characters, stories, or franchise names, Nintendo will almost undoubtedly take ruthless interest.

  • Do they still do this?
  • Still more interesting than the last couple movies

  • Banana Pi BPI-F3: Single-board computer and RISV-V alternative to the Raspberry Pi now available
  • Can someone smarter than me explain what RISV-V means? How is this different than the Raspberry Pi?

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Is Nintendo's Best-Selling Game Ever
  • Switch consoles are still selling as well as ever, and most of them come bundled with MK8D

    So even if you're not interested, you might still get a digital copy of the game just because it came with your console.

  • Anyone know a good mouse with a lot of side buttons, that isn't an MMO style?

    My Razer Naga Pro died and I'm absolutely not buying another one for what it costs. But I also can't seem to find a replacement with the same sort of layout this one had. I'll link a picture, but I'm essentially looking for a mouse that has a lot of side buttons but still has a place for me to rest my thumb without having to worry about accidentally pressing buttons. I don't really like 12 button MMO style mice for this reason, as I constantly feel like I'm going to accidentally press a button. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Edit: I also want to note that I'm right handed, and I hate the feel of ambidextrous mice. I like being able to lay my hand on the mouse and know exactly where my fingers are supposed to go.

    How popular are custom shells for the n3dsXL?

    I'm trying to get my hands on a n3dsxl, and I've been wondering how common it is to replace the shells on them. I can't find a ton of custom options online, but I'd love to do something like the textured hylian shield shell Nintendo did for the n2dsXL.

    If not that, than at least something other than the plain colors they came in. Sure Nintendo did a lot of special edition releases but since I'm already burning a hole in my pocket trying to get a n3dsxl in half decent condition, buying one with the Hylian Gold or Super Famicom (or any other special edition for that matter) shell is out of the question.

    Question about side effects of region unlocking

    With 3ds/2ds prices still through the fucking roof, I have been looking at some Japanese models, since their price tags are slightly less crippling to look at. Unfortunately, I can't speak Japanese, and I haven't regularly used a 3ds since the release.of NSMB2, so id like to have it in English so I can navigate without googling everytime I need to get inside the settings. The issue is, this used to lock you out of a bunch of online features. My question is: with the end of online communication/gameplay, is this still something I need to worry about? I know game updates are normally gotten from the eShop, but is it possible to download the updates manually from something like hShop? What about software updates? (Do I need to install software updates at all since all they seem to do is try to break homebrew?)

    Razer Naga pro seemingly completely dead. Any suggestions or am I out of luck?

    I went to turn on my PC this morning and my mouse wasn't responding. I checked that it was plugged in, and it was, but the mouse's lights weren't coming on and Synapse didn't detect anything. I plugged in the wireless receiver and my computer detected that, but it still didn't affect the mouse itself. I tested the cord to make sure that wasn't the problem, and sure enough, it was able to power my Xbox controller with no issue. I could try to reinstall the drivers and/or synapse but I don't see how that would be helpful if I'm seemingly unable to connect my mouse to my computer. I also tried to reset the mouse using several different buttons/button combinations to no avail. I'll update this post to include anything else I've tried, but what suggestions, if any, do you have?

    Looking for a pro controller/handheld option. All suggestions appreciated.

    I had the 8bitduo Ultimate and I loved it, though it was a little awkward to hold at first as I was more used to the slanted handle design of an Xbox controller. Unfortunately, I think I must have left it somewhere in public leading to it being stolen, as I haven't seen it in a few months in spite of constantly looking for it. (Fucking ADHD, man) I was also already in the market for a second one as I have a younger sibling who enjoys playing with me, and her current controller isn't winning any awards (powerA). I also wouldn't mind something more comfortable to use in handheld mode. I had a Hori Split Pad pro, but I did not like it at all. The controllers felt cheap and hollow, they drained the switch's already poor battery life even faster, and one half quit working after like a month.

    With that out of the way, I've looked at a few options:

    I could get another 8bitduo Ultimate, and I definitely might, but I'm curious if there are other, more comfortable options available.

    I've looked at the Gulikit King Kong 2 (and 2 pro) controllers, and they seem great on paper, but I've read a lot of reviews claiming they're prone to hardware failure in some form or another.

    Lastly, I've seen a lot on the Nyxi Wizard. It's newer, so I don't know that there's any long-term reviews available, and I don't know how comfortable the GameCube layout is for most games, but I've read that in terms of quality it seems great, plus it has the benefit of being a joycon substitute.

    Last lastly: Another thing I want to consider is whether I should get a joycon substitute, or get a console mount for a pro controller. I've heard a lot of good things about the Fixture S2 (i have an OLED) but I've also read that it tends to break with extended use.

    Need a USBC to USBC/3.5mm jack splitter

    Bought a pair of Sennheiser 560s for my computer but I'd like something to plug them into my phone. Of course, my phone doesn't have a headphone jack (fuck you Google) so I need an adapter. I'd prefer one that allows me to charge and plug my headphones in at the same time, but I can't find one that seems decent quality. Any help appreciated

    Is hydroid better than Khora now?

    Since his tentacles hold enemies still now, wouldn't he be better than Khora? I suggest this because his pilfering tentacles augment has higher stats than Khora's pilfering swarm.

    Is there a community for finding communities?

    I always think of small communities id like to be a part of, but can never find any. Reddit had (has) the same issue, leading people to create subreddits around the idea of helping others find communities to fit their interests. Idk thought it would be cool but I don't have the capabilities to do it myself.

    Who, in your opinion, is the Best/Worst person to ever exist?

    This is intentionally open ended, use your own definition of best/worst, and explain it.

    Purchase Advice

    Looking for headphones for use at my computer. Primarily for gaming but also music. Lots of people online recommend the Sennheiser HD 560s but I figured I'd ask to see if there's anything else worth looking at. I think I want open backs since I'll primarily use them at my desk by myself.

    My criteria are: -Decent price (around $200 or less) -Option for microphone attachment (also looking for recommendations there)

    If I were to go with the HD560s, would I need an amp to take full advantage of them? If so, I would also like recommendations for that too, as I don't really know anything about them. Any other advice you could give me would be very beneficial. I'm new to the audiophile scene and don't have a ton to spend on the best of the best in gear. Thanks!

    Is it unethical to troll arrogant people?

    I've been on a mini quest to try and get my Twitter account banned without doing anything strictly against the ToS and my first idea was to start messing with people who say something completely untrue, then refuse to back down under any circumstances. But that got me thinking, is it okay? I'm not outright insulting/cyber bullying them, more just arguing with them with a little bit of sarcasm.
