For you and anyone else who disagrees with anything I put up: as always, I will cover a bit of anything and everything, even when it's just to point out how ridiculous something is.

Quoting: Purple Library GuyWell, I wishlisted it, and downloaded the demo, and went to play it, and it said I should use a controller. I don't have one so I guess I'm not going to get the game when it comes out.
You can use keyboard and mouse too, had no issues here, it even tells you on the screen.

Quoting: ShmerlDid they ever make the game 64-bit? I remember giving up on it due to it hitting "large file" bug (very common bug for low quality 32-bit releases which many old Unity games suffered from).

Basically, when building anything 32-bit you need to tell the compiler to handle 64-bit file descriptors, otherwise your program can fail on some filesystems. Search for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS - it should always be set to 64 for games these days, or better everything should be 64-bit already.
Yes it has 64bit nowadays, at least on Steam it does, which also has the legacy 32bit version too but 64bit is the default.

Flathub now prominently notes unverified Flatpak apps

Quoting: darkoverlordofdataSince the xylib fiasco was caused by the dev team of record, I don't see this as any actual protection.
This isn't related to that, it's more related to the Snap scam apps that kept appearing. That Flathub actually go through verifying the real developers. Two very different situations.

Quoting: PenglingMy thoughts are that when you buy, say, a kettle, that kettle is yours to keep. If someone from the company that made the kettle were to come into your house a few years after you buy it and take away the kettle that you bought and paid for, that would be illegal. It should be the same for video games. It's very simple, really.
But this does happen, with all these "smart" products. See news all the time about features removed, suddenly subscriptions needed to keep certain features going and so on. It's not just gaming it happens. Sadly.

Squad-based online shooter Enlisted: Reinforced now on Steam with Linux support

Quoting: Kirbybut they released a free game in their launcher for 20$ on steam
marked as early access too when its the full title release, straight scam
Nothing “scam” about it. Developers are free to release on Steam however they want, they decided for now to bundle a package with the Steam purchase which wasn’t all that bad. As for Early Access, they planned to keep improving it and so decided for Steam specifically it wasn’t to be classed as a full complete ready release. There’s really nothing wrong with how they did it.
