Fallout TV Show Could Now Last Five Seasons After ‘Immensely Surprising’ Popularity, Say Creators
  • As a huge Fallout fan since the aughts, I was pleasantly surprised. The show is faithful to it source material and nails tone the games are known for. Some cameos helped the with dark humor. Story was interesting too, especially the b plot about the vaults.

  • Dr Robotnik's Ring Racers is a gorgeous free SNES-style arcade racer, built using Doom Legacy
  • I like the fact that Eggman is not the villain in this. I'd like to see more of this in future Sonic games. We've seen plenty of times where other videogame mascots have teamed up with their arch rivals to stop a greater threat.

  • Legend of Zelda
  • If you want to try a more "modern" Zelda game that isn't open world, twilight princess is a huge game.

    There's also Skyward Sword but it's way too linear for my liking. The sword swinging stuff can be pretty cool though

  • I hate to say it but I haven't been very active on lemmy, but I want to be

    Hopefully things change once lemmy.world updates to 0.19 with scaled sorting. And maybe you guys and gals have some advice for fixing my issue.

    To keep my feed fresh I subscribed to all the big communities full of memes. They do have engagement beyond funny jokes, but I'm tired of how political everything is.

    I'm not trying to bury my head in the sand, on the contrary, im highly aware how much fascism has taken its grips on the world. But I don't need to be reminded everytime I'm on lemmy.

    So I'm hoping once scaled sorting is on lemmy.world, the lemmyverse will transform. I hope I start seeing my hobbyist community come to life.

    Or if people have recommendations for large communities not full of politics that works too. Maybe memes and shitposts aren't for me.

    Why we might be alone

    A public lecture from a scientist adding to the conversation. What makes this lecture interesting is he is not disproving that alien life can exist, but instead trying to curb expectations because of the little data we have to back up claims. More importantly is the message that it is important for scientists to be care of biases when discussing this topic.

    4.5 Billion Years in 1 hour

    Kurzgesagt took 4 years to put together this video. It's quite profound if you stick with it, with a great soundtrack. We really have been here in the blink of an eye.

    A couple weeks behind, but life's been busy. Can't believe its been 9 years since Pink Lemonade! But this album was worth the wait. I absolutely love how his voice reminds me of Cedric Bixler-Zavala from the Mars Volta.

    Rock music has been good lately.

    It would be nice to give less active communities more weight in your subscribed feed

    Lemmy is still small and growing, so trying to use your subscribed feed of smaller communities, mixed in with larger communities leaves you with a very uneven feed as your scroll. I like being subscribed to the largest Technology community, but also I am subscribed to the Movies and TV community. One is more active with posts and more comments, and the other is not so much. In this scenario, the current algorithms will always show a feed full of technology posts for pages, and you wont end up seeing Movies and TV until you scroll for a awhile.

    I understand that the issues is, "The community isn't active enough". Fair. But could prioritizing smaller communities in the algorithm help these small communities become more active then?

    If there was way for the subscribed feed to better spread out all of your subscribed communities over your front page, I think this would help smaller communities get more attention. Plus it would be nice to see my smaller communities showing up at the top of my feed. Instead it shows 5 Lemmy Shitposts, 5 Memes and 5 Technology posts, before I see anything else.

    Im no programmer, so Im not going to act like I think this would be easy or possible, but I thought id throw this idea out there and maybe it will get some traction.

    So these guys have really travel across the genre-verse. I think their entire discography is great, but there has been a slow evolution of their sound over the years. I think its great a this band can keep up with quality and change after 14 years.

    Milwaukee mayor wants to double funding to fight against blight

    On Tuesday, Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson released his $1.9 billion budget proposal for 2024 at city hall.

    Part of the plan calls for more than $3 million to be spent on the demolition of 180 vacant buildings next year.

    "Buildings that are set to be razed, they need to come down. So, in a proposal that I'm calling, 'Raze and Revive,' my budget doubles funding for demolition," Johnson said.

    Alderman Robert Bauman argued the money should be spent saving buildings, not tearing them down.

    Home after home near 35th and Locust in Milwaukee sits empty.

    "They're drawing crime, unwanted rodents," said Tony Mills, who lives nearby.

    The vacant properties are boarded up with overgrown weeds and garbage littering lawns.
