just read monday's dinosaur comic and uh

this is the most relatable panel of all time?????? holy shit

the fact that afaik F# is basically the only programming language with *good* unit of measure support is a bit of a shame. you can sorta hack it into python and apparently ada and C++ can do it with some nightmares.

Tusky notifications rant 

God I hate tusky's "new toot" notifications for 3 reasons: a) tapping on one leads me to the notifications page, which means I can easily forget what I was just looking at and have no idea what's going on, when you clearly can just link me to the toot directly, y'know, like what Twitter does. B) I obviously have new toot notifications hidden on the notifications screen anyway, because they hide any actual important stuff, so it proceeds to link me to a page where the thing I just clicked on isn't even there. C) you can't expand them to view more in the phone notification. At least, not on my phone. If I'm reading them on my smartwatch, I can read more of the toot, and that's just kinda bizarre.

I love when you want to play a service game and it just happens to be under maintenance.

Genuinely, I can't go back to anything prebrawl due to the lack of controller customisation in that game I hate the default smash Bros controls with a passion.

Super smash Bros melee is an unplayable game because you can't turn off up to jump and I hate that.

It was my second attempt at hollow knight, the time I actually started liking the game, that I decided to intentionally not use the compass. It really made me pay attention to the world, and made me feel less lost, honestly, because I was focusing on the world layout. I'd highly recommend it. (I still used the other map features and I think I turned on the compass a little bit for deepnest because no, but for most of the game, it's just fine not using it and it makes it more fun if you ask me.

Paradise killer is still one of the best games Ive ever played.

with guest appearances from a rhythm game diehard, someone's mom who only plays hidden object games but it's not a point of mockery in the comic, and a retro game preservationist who is regularly shocked by how bad some of the shovelware they're preserving actually is

yknow what would be cool? a modern "gamers on the couch" webcomic that recognizes and celebrates all the different ways you can engage with video games. a queer indie game nerd, a speedrunner, and an oldskool pvp hardcore sounds like a perfect three-pointed ensemble cast

i do think pretty poorly of people who cheat at speedruns just because like, the mods are volunteers trying to do good for a community they love, don't make work for them trying to make yourself look good

The Uncharted Collection would sell better if they replaced Nate with Kat from Gravity Rush

Who's going to pay a $10 upgrade not to play as Kat?

It's fairly slow and not that good but it *is* a proper "Wear OS By Google" one so I'm definitely interested in that.

Got a $70 smartwatch today. It's a thing.

EXCUSE ME?!

Are we really defending how Legends Arceus of THE biggest franchise and more money than Almighty Sinnoh looks like a tiger wrist watch game?!

You can literally not tell the difference!

do you ever think about how one of the creatures in Subnautica is just called Reginald
