Spotify has raised prices for the second time in a year, with no new benefits, after its CEO sparked outrage by claiming the cost of creating 'content' is 'close to zero'
  • I've spent a good part of my life downloading my music and using mp3 playing apps. On time I downloaded Spotify to add songs to a shared playlist with friends. I figured I might try the app since I have it installed.

    This is the worst music playing app in the world. (I was on free tier) How could anyone see this and think "oh yeah I will pay a subscription to this service". Seriously

  • How games could do collabs better

    COD:BO6 was just announced and all the comments talk about how the collab skins will drop after 4 months in the game and I was thinking to myself: "You know what, I wouldn't mind a [TSwift/Spiderman/any celeb collab] if it was well implemented" For exemple, if you want to have a Spidey skin, go for the black one, or make it with a camo, don't go full blue&red with glossy finish. If you want a Swifty skin, make it "war-ready". Use dark shades, add combat equipment, camo. I know it would be hard to represent some flashy characters like that but it's up to them to ruin the game IG.

    Fortnite was in a good position as it already had a specific art style that allowed such skins to appear (even tho it loosed its original idea in the process) and also they at least try (I said try) to introduce collab in a lorefitting way.

    Struggling with the snowy depth

    Hey,

    Like the title says, I don't really know how to approach this biome. I know how to build wands (at least, I know most of the stuff from the wiki) I had some "god runs". I always some kind of objectives for the first parts of the game:

    • getting water
    • getting a decent amount of gold before next biome
    • going to mushroom biome if I lack power before next portal
    • move down when low hp

    But when I reach the snow depths, I always find myself lost. Should I go up using the mineshaft? Should I run to the next biome? Should I farm gold on the enemies?

    The next ones I generally know how to deal with them but snow depth feels like a coin toss for me.

    Best current/last gen gpu for Linux compatibility?

    I know Nvidia has a reputation for being bad with Linux. Is it better now? And most of all, what would be the best GPU for modern gaming on Linux (any distro)?

    What if there's a bigger, still unknown reference point?

    When we think about teleportation, there's always someone talking about how you should take into account the earth and the sun moving through space. Let's step back a little (not so much) what if the galaxy we're currently in is rotating really really fast around another, bigger, still unknown, spacial object?

    Something about The Finals

    I recently had the opportunity to play the video game The Finals on a very good computer with a 2070 or something along the line (and it was a bit laggy on medium 1080p)

    I've always wanted to play this game when I saw the promotion material. On top of being interesting and good looking, it's actually really really fun.

    However, after finishing my second quickplay, I got hit really hard by the fact that I would never be able to play such a game on decent quality 60fps. I guess it's not really about The Finals... But since good gpus aren't on the way to become affordable and I hear about some shortages of materials, I guess I have to say byebye to this.

    PS: I could put Helldivers 2 here maybe also but I'm not sure

    How would you go for a 500-600€ build able to handle 2023-2024 gaming standards

    I know this is a low budget •_•"

    Where would you go cheap?

    What part should be bought new?

    For which part is dumpster diving okay'ish?

    Should we allow/encourage AI/robots to replace the human workforce?

    Hello lemmy! ^^

    I was given this debate topic for an ethics class and since I really like this "small" tech savvy community that we have I wanted to know what were your thoughts.

    > I personally love the idea of replacing jobs so we can focus on the things we love and care (ranging from developing games to spending time with loved ones).

    > But on the other side I am rather scared that our society will not be able to follow the rapid growth of technology and put in place good regulations to avoid widening the gap between the top% and the rest of us

    Thanks for your answers ^^

    Just how the f*CK did Nintendo developed tears of the kingdom?

    There are so many things being tracked all the time in the game for puzzles and the power arm. Yet despites literally tracking sunshadows for some puzzle completion for example it runs almost smoothly with (in my 170h) no crashes. On a 6 yo portable console??

    Botw was already impressive but I could grasp it with the shaders and also there weren't that much physics puzzle. Objects were more static, there wasn't the two other maps, enemy diversity was limited, same for weapons. There was less of everything overall but I thought it was the limit of the console and the possible engineering around it.

    Is there any resources on how they managed to pull this off? White papers, behind the scenes, charts, ...?
