Quoting: cprnthe political correctness bullshit.

Oh man, whining about free speech and free art is everywhere. What's it this time?

I looked for a bit on a phone but can't seem to find a link now (it wasn't a YouTube video, Vimeo? Facebook?), you'll probably find it on a PC faster. I've seen an artist chick analysing the before and after and showing how the clothes on the main protagonist got neatly rearranged to stop showing her "daddy issues" character, sweater is now covering both of her shoulders, skirt is longer, some animations were changed to stop being "erotic" (like butt angle during crawling), etc. She also mentioned some dialogues have been changed but I don't remember if she quote any. Finally she paired all that with some news strips about how the old game was criticised by feminist movement and how "modernizing" was "supervised / approved" by some newly acquired female employee. There were some other in-game changes not regarding Edna but I wasn't paying attention, I guess. That chick had a whole series about games that got their "redux" releases and books that got made into a movie or a series (yes, you guessed it, she briefly got my attention when I was looking for stuff about Witcher series).

Honestly, maybe don't watch it. I wasn't bothered by the new art style before I've seen it.

Quoting: Hamish
Quoting: cprnOoooh... I don't like the new graphics. :( They didn't keep the style.
Which is why the old graphics are still available as a toggle.

Well, yeah, but I meant I'd love if the new graphics kept the style of the old ones. You know, refreshed but without the political correctness bullshit.

Yup, there are minor sound issues... but I played the good old Prince of Persia for a bit and I loved it! :D Cheats don't work, though... :(

I love the idea but the execution could see more love.

From a developer's point of view: Hell, yeah! No more messing around with multiplayer code just for dual stick RPGs!

Steam Play Proton 4.11-7 is out with more gamepad improvements and other misc fixes

Should I reinstall Kingdom Come: Deliverance? It stopped starting for me after update. :( With older Proton versions I had to link some DLLs to a different directory or it wouldn't go past the initial black screen. It does the same now even though I have those DLLs linked properly.

So it's like an extra keyboard with shortcuts you can predefine? I configured something like that for a friend long time ago with a phone android app - can't seem to google it now, if you know the name of it, please comment in response. We dabbled with a webcam gestures app before that but it wasn't working well enough. It, unfortunately, was on Windows. Good to know there are similar ready to use solutions on Linux now.

Testing the Gioteck WX-4 Wireless gamepad on Linux, pretty good for the price

I have one good controller (that is Steam Controller I got as a gift from a good friend) and four 3rd party Xbox One Controllers from China that cost me less than 20£ total. Work equally beautiful without the unpopular layout.
