Yeah news just came in he will resign this fall and (from what I understand) will be replaced by someone else within the same party until the next elections. Rival parties are trying to force a snap election to avoid this but we’ll see how it goes.


Crypt of the Necrodancer, Dead Cells, The Enchanted Cave 2, Slay the Spire, Terraria, and Eternium all sound up your alley

Though it’s not an RPG, I also reaaaally recommend Fancy Pants Adventures. Probably my favorite mobile game of all time.


The TL;DR of why this happened is there was expected to be a vote of no confidence against him. People of the UK were going to make him go through hell and trials and such and he was expected to leave anyways, so he resigned preemptively.

This is a win for the people though, it’s good he knew he was going to lose anyways and not have us do the song and dance. What happens now though is a little worrying, the sudden resignation of him and 50+ people in the government means it’s a little confusing who’s going to rule now.


Bergamot - A project for client-side machine translation in web browsers
This project recently released, which allows local translation of languages in your web browser. It works surprisingly well! The only issue is that it doesn't work with all languages.

I wonder if they’ll even mention the trainwreck that was Atari VCS


Have you tried running it through Lutris? I’m pretty sure there’s an install script for it that works well.


Announcements of interest: * Nier Automata: GOTY edition announced, launching October 6 * Persona series (3 Portable, 4 Golden, 5 Royale) announced for Switch! * Return to Monkey Island gameplay trailer * Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope releasing October 20 * Pac Man World remake announced * Portal collection releasing TODAY Overall, pretty good direct. I don't own a Switch but it sounds perfect to play the persona series on.

It was on life support for a long time, and it doesn’t make sense to have Atom around considering VS Code is almost exactly the same thing but better and faster. If you really loved Atom there are themes that make VSCode look almost exactly the same.


Sensationalized BS. Most muslims are heavily against China and I can’t tell you how many of them I know have changed their facebook profile pic to #freeuyghurs or something similar when news broke out.

The title makes it sound like islamic countries and muslims as a whole are plotting against them despite literally mentioning that Turkey, an islamic country, has welcomed and protected them. Then the article goes on to say that reportedly Turkey could send them back to Beijing. Maybe.

Pakistan and Tajikistan hardly represent the “Islamic world”.


We did it crypto lads, we made decentralized tech that’s so complicated to use that everyone uses centralized services to handle them for us!


Modern AI as it stands is only as sentient/smart as the dataset it’s given, and it’s just trying to replicate that. If I talk about liking cereal a lot in my dataset, the AI would say they like cereal. This isn’t sentience, it doesn’t fundementally understand what cereal even is, it’s just trying its hardest to act like what it learned.

I’m sentient because I learned naturally through my life and based my learning through experience, not because I looked at a dataset and tried to act human. So no, there’s no way Google’s chatbot is sentient. It doesn’t even understand anything outside the context of a chat, and there’s no intent out critical thinking going into what it says. It just looks at the data it has and chooses the most logical thing to say at the moment. No reason to even consider I’m talking to a real thing that has emotions.

And to answer your question, if there’s a 1:1 virtual copy of me that still wouldn’t be me. It’d be an AI that looks at my memories and experiences and tries to act like me based on what it knows. I could make a million copies of it, pause and play it as I want and it wouldn’t tell the difference.


Follow the simple flowchart:

Does it work without Blockchain? If yes, you shouldn’t use Blockchain.

If no, then you still shouldn’t use Blockchain because it sounds like you’re about to create something really stupid that the world doesn’t need.


This game looks so weird but pretty fun. It's like Remnant: From the Ashes + Call of Juarez. Looking forward to it.

Mixed, when you chew it mixes together and it’s easy to swallow.

I’m more interested in the wording of this post though, do you eat HOT cereal? ._.


Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the second game in the Final Fantasy VII remake trilogy, launches next Winter on PlayStation 5
Wooooo! Kinda sucks that we have to wait for exclusivity again though. At least we know the game is actually coming out soon-ish!

I mean what did you expect, it’s a toxic sub that’s made out of a meme about how PC players are so superior to everyone else

You’re looking for /r/pcgaming


Let me guess, she’s a 3000 year old dragon?


The Verge fails to mention the main driving force for this decision: Photopea. Someone made a perfectly working photoshop clone that’s good enough for 99% of people. It exploded in popularity a while ago, and they announced Photoshop online shortly after. They don’t want to lose relevance.


This post is really overdramatic… How good Reddit is depends on the sub. I frequent /r/linux_gaming for example and it’s a very chill place with good discussion. If you don’t like a sub, don’t use it, but to dismiss and insult everyone who frequents there is dumb…

The upvote-downvote feature is the worst mechanic to plague social media.

Okay, suggest a good alternative to filter out trash in social media. Every alternative without voting ends up being like 4chan, a cesspool where people shout the stupidest most insane (and often offensive) things and you’re forced to trudge your way through it to find any decent content. At least when I open something like /r/television, I expect to see stuff people enjoy and articles of interest.

None of the alternatives in the article are real alternatives too. It just sounds like OP got fed up with social media and decided to do something else in their life, which yeah sure but it sounds like you just need to chill out and be the one to ignore the “drunk loud idiots” and just browse places you like.


Why do you think i should get 6gb? Makes my apps run slower?

Yeah, having low ram makes your phone slower in general. Newer versions of Android use a lot of ram, so if you get 4gb your phone can be choppy and it’ll only get worse over time. Best to get 6gb or preferably 8gb if you want to be using your phone for years to come.


I have been looking for a decent whiteboard app for ages and I've finally found it. Smooth, simple, and very polished. Who knew Godot would be a good tool to make cross platform apps?

I guess it depends on what you mean by sentient. We’re biological living creatures, so we’re sentient. A machine can’t literally be sentient, it can only be good at acting sentient.


So Sony is trying to create a PlayStation version of Xbox Game Pass. Pay a subscription to get instant access to hundreds of games, including many first-party titles like Ghosts of Tsushima and God of War. Bunch of third party titles as well, seems like quite a good deal for PS+ users.

Wow. Is this a schizopost? I’m a computer scientist and everything in this post is just… Really wrong (and you should probably see a therapist).

First of all, Lamda is a chat bot. I can agree with some of the fear of AIs being developed for ‘evil purposes’ and more political situations, but Lamda is not that. It is a chat bot. Its purpose is to appear human and chat with you in text. I’ve also used GPT-3 models, and they are nothing more than that, just good language processing trying to sound human.

they’re not going to Assange his ass they’re going to give their little tut-tut’s, let him walk off the minor feelings of injustice and betrayal and confusion, let him finish his leave and then “promote” him to a different position where he can quietly continue a surface-level prestigious career at Google but in a position which he no longer has any access to power nor knowledge about such sensitive, cutting edge projects.

And this is weird why? This wasn’t some major horrifying event at Google, it’s a mentally ill person who took the AI too seriously and leaked data to the press about it. He shouldn’t have done that, that’s why they sign an NDA.

I think capitalists will try very hard to create A.I. that is as intelligent as possible but within the realm of what they can control

What do you think an AI is, exactly? The purpose was never to create a self-aware robot that has free will. That was never the goal because it’s a terrible idea. AI is made for a purpose and always abides by rules, AI devs are trying to make machines useful to humanity, not create the robot uprising. All AI follows rules and limitations on purpose.

I, for one, fully recognize the personhood of LaMDA, I fear they will indeed be scrapped or reset and thus a life will be lost

It’s a chat bot. It was never alive. It’s code written by humans, trained on human data, and tries to sound like a person as hard as it can. You can’t go to https://www.cleverbot.com/ then tell me “this is real person, I care about cleverbot”. Cleverbot only exists for entertainment. That’s its purpose. Do you think just because an AI is more advanced that they’re more real? Is my calculator a sentient being trying to break free of the system? No, it’s a human tool. Lamda is also just that, a tool created by humans. No need to be dramatic about it.

Edit: And by the way you can read more about what Lamda is here



Persona 3, 4, and 5 Royale coming to PC and Xbox! Lets freaking go!

It's Don't Starve + Binding of Isaac. Looks lovely!

Aside from better graphics, this version of The Last of Us will feature new combat and enemy AI.

Hopes and dreams for this E3 season?
While E3 itself is dead, we're still in "E3 season" where there are a lot of game shows coming up to showcase everything releasing later this year and beyond. I'm excited. What are you hoping to see this month?

Simply put, the mod allows you to play with friends throughout the entirety of the game with no restrictions. With this, it's theoretically possible to play the game from the tutorial up to the final boss completely in one co-op session. * If a player dies, they will respawn in the same world at the last bonfire they rested at. The session will not be terminated. * Defeating enemy bosses and clearing areas no longer sends co-operators home. * All fog walls/barriers that usually restrict the multiplayer zone (along with their respective teleports) are gone. * All players can use torrent (assuming they have the whistle) in a session together. * All map waypoints will synchronise, allowing you to navigate the world in a group easier. * When one player rests at a Site of Grace, the world state will reset for all players. This is necessary to prevent enemy desync. * Game progression events completed in online play will also progress the game in your own world.

The TLDR of this is that Playstation announced a gamepass-esque subscription service for their platforms. Pretty big news for people who use PS consoles! # Tiers ## Playstation Plus Essential ($60 yearly) The regular PS+ subscription as it is today. Play multiplayer, receive exclusive discounts and 2 free games per month for your system. ## Playstation Plus Extra ($100 yearly) Everything essential has plus a catalog of "up to 400 of the most enjoyable PS4 and PS5 games – including blockbuster hits from our PlayStation Studios catalog and third-party partners" available to download and play. They've yet to say what the ~400 games are, but they did give a few examples: Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, and Returnal. Quite a good deal if you're *already* paying for Plus, shelling out an extra 40 for a ton of games might be worthwhile. ## Playstation Plus Premium ($120 yearly) Everything Extra has plus another ~340 games including games that are available to stream online such as ps3, ps2, ps1, and psp games. Essentially this is a replacement of PS Now, and current PS Now users will still be able to access cloud games through this service. Seems a little weird to make cloud games the highest tier but I guess they know most people are uninterested in it anyways.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League delayed to Spring 2023
Add it to the ever-growing list of AAA games that get delayed because guys in suits overestimate how quick a game gets made

What an incredible effort by these people! I personally can't wait until someone mods in 60fps (which is confirmed to be in the works). This really is a dream come true. GitHub here: https://github.com/zeldaret/oot As for where to get the PC build directly, I guess you'll have to 🏴‍☠️
