Quoting: scaineI keep going to buy this, then realising that it can't possibly be as immersive as 7 Days to Die. Perhaps when the multiplayer is full ironed out, I might consider it anyway, as I'm sure it's a very different "style" of game, even putting aside the isometric view vs the 3D view.

No you must get it! It doesn't look it but it's incredibly immersive....I highly recommend it, it's clunky and still in beta but has amazing atmosphere.

FMOD Studio 2.02 is out along with native Linux support

This is great news. I worked on FMOD in a game some years ago and while they had Linux API support, FMOD studio was windows only, much to my chagrin. I never thought they'd make a native client.

Quoting: Purple Library GuyMy wife's opinion is that, while she's actually not a big fan of most of the beers and prefers a Corona, something like the craft beer revolution was needed because the North American bar culture was so putrid. She always found bars really hostile places--you could go there, but the loud music made it impossible to chat with a friend, and all the men would be giving you the once-over in the assumption you were there to be picked up. At the craft beer places, she can go and spend some time, alone or with friends or her daughters or even me, and feel comfortable and hear herself speak. There's an expectation that you're not there primarily to get hammered or be at a meat market and you might want to socialize.

I myself hate traditional North American bars, like traditional British pubs fairly well on average, and like the craft breweries pretty well too. Why the difference? Because both British pubs and craft breweries aren't fucking pits.
I've never been a bar guy. But always fashioned myself as someone who would go to a proper pub, if there were any around. But then I live in Utah, so we're not allowed to actually have fun anyhow. Fun fact: someone opened a club here for Mormons where they served energy drinks instead of alcohol... Because that's healthy...
Ah, yes, Mormons . . . one of the two relatively popular current religions that we actually know was started by a scammer. We may wonder about Christianity or Islam or whatever, but we know for sure about Mormonism and Scientology.

If you ever want to fully debunk Mormonism, read Jon Krakauer's "Under the Banner of Heaven" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_the_Banner_of_Heaven)
It's a real eye opener.

Anyway, I love craft beers (what a relief we have some choice) AND a good old regular Pilsner from Pilzen. On that note, where's my beer again?
