Roguelite survivor game Nordic Ashes: Survivors of Ragnarok has launched
3 May 2024 at 7:15 pm UTC

When I first bought this game, I was not enjoying it. Couldn't get into it. Balance between characters seemed way off. Tried it again with the 1.0 version and I have to say that it's gotten a lot better. Balance is pretty good now and you can feel a pretty clear progression curve. Still a big grind though, but that's kind of a standard feature for these kinds of games. The game could do with a few more quality of life improvements, but it's enjoyable.

HELLDIVERS 2 will soon actually require a PlayStation Network account

I skipped on it because of the external account requirement. Didn't even know that it wasn't needed all this time.

Quoting: TheRiddickI don't really see the reason why everyone who never plans to have a playstation needs now make a PSN account to play the game bought on steam. But apparently it was in the fine print somewhere.

is PSN store coming to PC? then that would make some sense.

I've heard word that Sony is trying to set up their own version of GamePass, so it makes sense (if somewhat scummy) that they'd be pressuring devs to require a login. I imagine Arrowhead is caught in the middle , and will see no benefit at all.

Hell, they won't even be the ones harvesting monetizable data.

Something like that would have been my guess. I wouldn't even be surprised if the "grace period" was done on purpose in order to give many more people a "smoother ride" into the game. That may sound a little conspiracy, but Sony has done worse things.

VR game Alien: Rogue Incursion releases late 2024

Not really much to go on. The trailer meaningless and it's coming to quest, which means that it'll be severely limited. Maybe it can get me hyped later, but today is not the day.

Fun to hear some insides. Very much looking forward to the expansion. Until then, I have the mammoth task of finishing the Space Exploration modpack.

Quoting: whizseNot sure why they link statically though. SDL still advises against doing so.

The article is not entirely clear, but since they're upstreaming code they added a function to it. Statically linking would prevent it from being accidentally replaced.

Quoting: PinguinoOh, fun, let me see how that looks like. Maybe I can learn a thing or two.

(84,9% Assembly)

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand nevermind.

Haha, sometimes it pays to be old.

Had a quick peek. Nothing too special or unexpected of course. Kind of fun to see a different style between parts of code. But I see no use for it other than preservation.

Fantasy city-builder Songs of Syx is approaching the end-game

Nice. If it's feature complete now, I should pick it up again. I left it a long while back because I couldn't really justify putting in all the time to figure it out when everything is still in motion.

Quoting: EhvisNow I should decide whether to reinstall with base Ubuntu or use Kubuntu. Choices, choices.

Personally I am going to reinstall with the base Ubuntu. I am excited to try out the new Gnome 46.
Kubuntu looked less interesting to me because it is using using Plasma 5 instead of the newer Plasma 6.

For me it's kind of weighing plusses and minuses. I seriously dislike the tabletification of the UI that Gnome is doing. KDE is more a proper desktop UI and a much better usage experience. On the other hand, Gnome is just technically better. Everything feels faster and I have way less issues with the compositor. I can't even count how many times KWin restarted itself over the year I used it.

Quoting: mrdeathjrin my case stay using around november and many things runs good

sadly lubuntu dont have lxqt 2.0 and kde dont have plasma 6, maybe appear for 24.10 around october

KDE Neon should have you covered for that.

Nah, this was done to patch up a few things for the potential new public coming from the Amazon series.

Valve makes paid 'Advanced Access' a clear feature on Steam now

The one thing I like about this is that people that got FOMOed into spending money on "advanced access" can leave a review immediately. So now lots more people can see that the game is crap even before release!
