  • I didn't get to posting about it, but I saw last week the announcement about "Beyond the Ice Palace 2", which is the metroidvania sequel to a 1988 Amiga game. Bizarre that now is the time to cash in on the social capital these two games have built up over the years 🤷🏼

    Biomorph, a shapeshifting metroidvania, is out now on PC and is getting great reviews
  • I bought it after the positive reviews and have only been able to get to the city after the prologue, so you’re already farther than myself. But part of why I put it down was because it felt too soon to introduce this reprieve from the Metroidvania gameplay loop.

    I have every faith that it’ll “get to the good stuff”, but I did have a similar feeling to you. I’m going to give it another hour in a bit.

    For whatever reason, James Harden contests his teammate's shot attempt 🤷🏻‍♂️
  • I love it. Funniest play I’ve seen in a long time.

    His explanation

    Maybe it would've been better if he had made the shot, but give them something to laugh about, some excitement.

  • I don’t know, but I have a feeling it doesn’t. He just pushed a blog post on it and I’m reading it now

    They have private/internal APIs that they get grumpy at you for using because you can circumvent ads. The goal with this app was to not make Google grumpy.

    EDIT: got to the answer - no.

    Does it block ads? It doesn’t, I don’t think Google would like that, but if you have YouTube Premium you won’t see ads, just like the website. Honestly, YouTube Premium is like one of the most essential subscriptions for me, it’s so handy to never worry about ads and it’s pretty cool in that it also supports the creators substantially more than if you watched ads. So I dunno, if you can afford an expensive Apple Vision Pro, I’d really consider treating yourself to YouTube Premium!

  • Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown - Now out on Switch, Playstation, and Xbox
  • I don't know how to write this that doesn't come off as defensive, but… Yes, the guy who's dying to create a community on here around Metroidvanias and is the only person to make posts in c/metroidvania for 55 posts is a corporate shill for Ubisoft.

  • 2024 is Poised to be Puget Sound’s Biggest Transit Year in Decades
  • I didn’t know about the challenges with the Eastside extension, but I’m glad they’re partially opening. I can’t believe they still don’t have NFC tapping with phones. I know bureaucracy is tough, but they misjudged the demand and their priorities.

  • Voyager 1.24.0 - Android themed icon, iOS biometrics and more!
  • Could you share more details on the “better video handling” so I know what to test for? Is it specific platforms were added to auto play? Or is it reducing bugs when playing? Etc.

    I’m excited to test it out. Thanks!

  • Ebenezer and the Invisible World — now out on all major platforms
