  1. Really hate the change to thumbnail size on the homepage, so much more wasted space and needed scrolling. Someone posted a userscript to Reddit a few days ago - here - which makes thumbnails small again, thankfully.
  2. Also, if Netflix were to start harassing me with text messages asking for me to input codes to keep watching a show or similar such nonsense, I would just cancel and find other ways of consuming the content I want.
  3. This sounds like they're either pulling numbers out of their ass or assuming people who pirate and/or use their family/friends' accounts would pay for those services themselves, which is an idiotic assumption to make. Such a nonsensical claim.
  4. I'm pretty sure GOG announced a while ago that they're working on GOG Galaxy 2.0, one of the features of which is to have all of your games across all launchers/platforms in one library.
  5. Getting this error now when trying to sort Tech News.
  6. Damn, I hope Ublock Origin gets updated for the new Chrome then. I use Firefox for everything else, but for some reason Twitch livestreams/VODs are unwatchable for me on FF; I need to use Chrome.
  7. The teaser trailer gave me strong Twilight Princess vibes and reminds me of Majora's Mask in the sense that it seems like Nintendo are reusing assets from the previous game to reduce development time/costs and improve on a product that many people have lauded as being among the best Zelda games they've made. Given that TP and MM are my top two favorite Zelda titles, I'm really excited to see where this goes. BotW had several problems - notably rain, a lack of interesting dungeons, and items that felt too similar and boring (none of them felt truly unique, unlike in previous Zelda titles) - I hope Nintendo will vastly improve on these aspects for this sequel.
  8. As someone who put over 100 hours in AC:Odyssey in the Project Stream beta for Stadia, I'm cautiously optimistic for future details regarding this service. For example, if you own the games on Uplay, Steam, etc., do you have to buy a different version for Stadia? How many quality games are going to be available for "free" as part of the subscription service? Are those games temporary, or do they stay available on the platform forever (or at least a significantly long time)? Is modding, or anything close to it, going to be possible? Will save games be transferable to PC? I think the answers to many of these questions will be the deciding factor as to how well this takes off, if at all. The subscription service almost definitely won't be something I see people keeping active indefinitely, but resubscribing off and on every once in a while to play a select few games is something I can see many people, possibly including myself, doing - particularly if you lack the hardware to run more demanding games yourself. At the end of the day, I welcome new services and options for people to play games on - so long as Stadia won't have any bullshit exclusive nonsense like PS4/Xbox/Nintendo, I hope it does well. Though if this means we get yet another player in the exclusivity market, I hope it dies.
  9. One of my favorite games from the PS2, cautiously excited to see what this remake is going to be like and how good it will be compared to the original.
  10. I still use iTunes version 10.7.0.21 with a dark theme skin, and will likely continue to use it for the foreseeable future - its lightweight, looks nice, and does everything I need it to do without any ads, delay, or wasted space. Newer versions are bloated hot garbage though, so I'm glad this supposed retirement may push more users towards a more friendly alternative, whether that be an older version of iTunes or another music player altogether.
  11. I cannot imagine a situation in which anyone participates in or takes this law in any way seriously. People aren't gonna pay for porn, they sure as hell aren't gonna give their personal information to porn companies, and they sure as hell won't be going out in public to buy a so-called "porn pass". If the government does actually try to fine sites for not complying, those sites are far more likely to just ban the UK until the UK gets it shit together. Not to mention that if people aren't able to use the more popular porn sites, they'll just go find the smaller, less known sites - sites which will be far more likely to contain malware. And then there's the fact that even if people do participate in this nonsense, there's no way that the data involved will remain secure; if anything, it will be a prime target that bad actors would love to get their hands on. This just seems like a bad idea all around.
  12. Is this related to that issue with the beams of light in DMC V, covering Trish/Lady's naked bodies, which were only present in the Western PS4 version? I will never understand these sorts of ridiculous censorship decisions - does Sony really think they're helping anyone here? If people want to see sexual content, there are only a million or so other places they can easily go to look at them. The only thing Sony's doing is telling the world that certain games - chosen on a purely subjective basis - will be objectively worse on their platform compared to others. Let the parents parent; if they don't want their kids looking at sexual imagery in video games, they can deal with that themselves - that's part of the reason game ratings even exist. Taking the step to block this stuff for everyone just insults regular adults who are fully capable at looking at naked CGI without harming themselves or anyone else.
  13. Glad to see PS4 backwards compatibility is a likely feature. I haven't had a PlayStation since the PS2, so this new console being backwards compatible will give me the opportunity to play some of those exclusives I've missed out on - even more so if we get PS3 backwards compatibility as well (unlikely). If it looks like there will be a strong lineup of PS5(?) exclusives coming whenever this thing launches, I may once again buy a console for the first time in quite a long time. Though I would prefer if exclusives were a thing of the past and Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo just competed on hardware and features, that's probably not going to happen anytime soon, so I'll take what I can get. Very unlikely to happen, but kb/m support would be phenomenal as well, and would likely push me to instantly buy this console on release, since I'd no longer hate myself for trying to aim with analog controls.
  14. So... TL:DR: There's going to be significantly less content available in South Africa (assuming this law, unchanged, in actually enforced)? There's no way in hell the vast majority of content "distributors" will go through these hoops, so they'll just block all of their content in South Africa. It would be too much of a legal mess otherwise. Sucks (slightly more than usual) for the people who live there.
  15. Really looking forward to this. I have a shit PC, so being able to stream games that I would otherwise be completely unable to play would be great until I can actually afford to build a decent gaming PC. I put 100 hours in AC:Odyssey via Google's Project Stream, the beta to this service, and it worked great - I only had issues maybe 2-3 times total across all 100 hours of playtime, input lag was unnoticeable, and framerates were a consistent 30 at 1080p with ~25mbps (I've heard it goes to 60fps at higher internet speeds, but I can't confirm that), although there were some artifacting at times when my internet decided to shit the bed. The compression looks a bit like YouTube's, so if you're using an inconsistent internet connection, it would likely feel like you're playing a YouTube video - but when my internet decided to stay consistent, it looked wonderful and I didn't notice any artifacting at all. Overall, I think this service will be a great alternative for those that can't afford a decent gaming rig/console - though of course pricing will be the deciding factor here on whether this might become the Netflix of gaming or become a complete bust. After all, if it's too expensive, it would just make more sense to save up to buy your own hardware/games.
