People will still clamor for it. I don’t think it will ever come close to matching the magic of the previous titles. What made those great was that we didn’t have anything remotely close and it was always on the cusp of something groundbreaking. No one was expecting skyrim, it had a short advertisement cycle - people got hyped - and then it dropped and opened people’s minds up to what a modern RPG should resemble.

The formula is old and beaten into the ground for how Bethesda games work. They need STRONG writing and world building along with breaking from their typical structure of designing the game.

People are expecting Skryim 2.0 in where it completely blows you out of the water and I don’t think we’ll get that. Personally I think we’ll get a graphically polished game, with great writing and music, and sub par execution of basically everything else. Let’s hope I’m wrong on that last bit.

PowerColor uses NPUs to lower GPU power consumption and improve frame rates in games (www.neowin.net)

PowerColor has come up with an interesting use for neural processing units (NPUs) in modern CPUs. At Computex 2024, it displayed so-called “Edge AI” technology that pairs a graphics card with an NPU to lower power consumption in games....

Yokozuna ,

Can’t wait to have to buy an NPU as well as my CPU and GPU.

I think that about local news here whenever I happen to see it. Half of it is fear mongering, the other half is pointless shit that really has no bearing on anything. “Local” news is generally a joke, with few stations actually having journalists who want to actually do something productive.

Yokozuna ,

Right there with you. I got a good giggle out of this.

Yokozuna OP ,

Ah what a bummer! Thanks for the response, I really appreciate it.

Yokozuna OP , (edited )

Yea this is it, thanks for dropping this. I’m going to have so much fun with this.

Yokozuna ,

I read that in his voice. You’re doing the lords work posting memes.

Yokozuna ,

Can confirm. Those guys were awesome.

Yokozuna ,

OK, the only reason I would like this tech is that I could finally translate the symphony of music I hear in my head, mostly while laying down in bed for the night, that I could never actually play.

May I introduce Cleo and Sebastion! Sebastion is very talkative and shows lots of love, but from a distance. Cleo is a sweetie and will come and lay on my chest at night, and also find anything to make noise with in the morning, so I’ll wake up and feed them. They generally love each other and never fight, but sebastion can go into what I call Crack head mode, and anything goes then.

When I did a lengthy focus group for VR about 8 years ago, one of the questions they asked was how I would react to seeing ads in game and they probably got the most heated and emotional response out of me than any other question they asked me.

Yokozuna ,

The main reason for that has to be the price factor I feel like, although I could be overlooking another reason.

I will never buy a product produced by Meta, so whenever I do decide to pony up for a headset, it will most likely be a Valve product.

Yokozuna ,

Damn, that’s definitely a reason to use it over Valves headset. I wonder if their next one will include some of these features.

Yokozuna ,

I also just re-played through this, mgs1 is a fantastic game for so many reasons. It brought me back to when games were meant to be fun and not a grind fest.

I would also like to say maybe take the downtime you have now and play through the VR missions for 2, they add a lot in when it comes to functions of sneaking and playing those will really make you aware of the tools at your disposal, that’s currently what I’m doing when I feel like it.

Yokozuna ,

What a champ. Glad to know he’s doing better. Been following this saga closely. Thanks to the user’s who have donated, you’re awesome.

Yokozuna ,

All depends on your personality and possible HOA’s in a more populated area.

Personally, I don’t have a problem being separated from people, and you don’t have to be lonely just because you’re away from people - animals can provide you company and keep you busy. I would go with the more recluse location as you can do what you with your property more so than in a neighborhood. Grow a garden, have a bon fire, and just generally have more freedom. Land and houses are generally cheaper a little farther out so that also helps. As long as you have a reliable mode of transportation then living farther away from people is my go to. Also, a plus if you work remote and don’t have to commute.

Yokozuna ,

You put the brace in the palm of your hand and use this in a swiping motion and not so much a straight jab so you don’t hurt yourself in the process. Don’t slide the piece all the way down your fingers, the image seems to have it right.

[Discussion] [Question] Red Beans and Rice

So I have never had this dish! Most dishes I cook I have tasted a variant of it so I know how it should taste when I make it, but Cajun/Creole/Louisiana food in general is something I’ve never had the pleasure of trying first hand but the spices always look really tasty. Does anyone have a good recipe to share with me, with...

Yokozuna , (edited )

I’m not really putting measurements on here but I’d say you want to cook minimum a pound of beans.

-Soak red kidney beans overnight

-Sautee onions, garlic, celery in a 4 quart pot

-Pour in beans and cover with water

-Throw in 2-3 bay leaves

-Add meats (if you want them to be tender)

-Salt/pepper to taste

-cayenne pepper, solely based off of your heat tolerance

-mix

-Bring to broil reduce heat

-Cook at least 8 hours on medium low heat

-Stir occasionally

-beans should be a viscous, not runny/watery and not incredibly thick. Add water as needed to thin out beans.

-Serve with white rice

-Garish with Italian parsley and/or chopped green onions

-if you didn’t Add meats in the beginning, serve with your choice of smoked sausage, bone in pork chop, Andouille, or boudin on the side and/or French bread with butter

-Top beans and rice with your favorite hot sauce (typically louisiana hot, Tabasco, or crystal)

This is your basic no frills red beans that tastes delish.

[RECIPE] Sushi Bake (files.catbox.moe)

Since there was some curiosity about what a sushi-bake is, here’s my own recipe for it. Sushi-bake is basically a “deconstructed” sushi roll where the ingredients are layered instead of rolled then baked in the oven. There are different variations of how it’s made, so this is my take on it. Apologies if I don’t have...

Yokozuna ,

This looks great, good job on it! Hope it tastes as good as it looks.

My grandmother’s home insurance has gone up close to 1000$ the past two years combined. I’ve been wanting to leave this doomed place for awhile, and I can’t wait to buy a house in the mountains.

Yokozuna ,

Man whenever a hurricane is in the gulf and my family is all like “pray it doesn’t come our way” I’m just like… so you’re asking God to ruin someone else’s life? Shit is insane.

Yokozuna ,

Just YouTube some news pieces about climate change and Grand Isle, those turds literally have said they aren’t going anywhere till the last piece of land is underwater. Literal hubris of man.

Yokozuna ,

Insurance does not want to pay and will find any way not too. My grandparents house flooded in Katrina along with mine and the rest of my family’s and 90% of the rest of the parish and my grandparents never saw a red cent from the insurance they faithfully paid because of some technicality on the way that the house flooded.

A lot of people have already moved north across the lake and into Mississippi but people are getting complacent and building million dollar homes on multiple lots that have been abandoned since Katrina.

Yokozuna ,

Property is selling very high in the parish I’m from adjacent to orleans parish. People have forgotten about Katrina and have faith in the levee system. Property is also selling high in New orleans as well unless it’s a dog shit area.

Yokozuna ,

I mean, if idiots want to live there and own the property, that’s on them. But those are the same people who vote red and I 100% believe that when push comes to shove and they lose everything (again) they’ll be looking for government assistance.

As someone who wanted to love Elite Dangerous but couldn’t get behind the grind and monotony of it, would this game be worth getting now?

Yokozuna ,

Yea, I would have to agree wholeheartedly that the ship flying is awesome in Elite. The ambiance is great, such as the creaking of the ship when in hyper drive. I guess the games are two different kind of space Sims. If what you’re telling me is accurate about NMS then Elite is probably better for me in the long run, I just wish I had a friend who would actually play it with me and make space a little less lonely - I guess I would have the same problem in either title come to think of it.

Yokozuna ,

Yea Elite Dangeous is kind of the same, you have to make your own objectives or you’re just running missions to make money to buy ships to be more efficient at those runs and eventually even bigger ships to make more money.

Yokozuna ,

I would say I do to an extent, but elite dangerous solo is pretty egregious i just feel really confined even though you can get out of your ship now. If there were a few more things to do it would check all of the boxes such as things you could do in NMS like build bases, etc. And plus the ship customization is strictly internals and you don’t have the ability to change the overall look of your ship besides skins.

Yokozuna ,

Yea that’s kinda what I was getting at in my comments on here, maybe not necessarily this comment you replied to, but elite definitely had the ship aspect of the game down, it feels so good to fly around, bur you’re totally right in how you called it a space trucking feel. That’s where I get tired of it even if you can get out of your ship with the expansion now. With all of the comments here I think I’ll wind up buying it here soon and giving it a whirl.

Yokozuna ,

Don’t know if I’ll trust a non Kojima Metal Gear.

Yokozuna ,

Looks like an awesome game collection even though I can’t see what the titles are.

Yokozuna ,

Oh, for sure. I’ve been wanting to build something custom to have all of my consoles setup in, plugged in, and ready to go and this gave me some idea as how to lay it out.

Yokozuna ,

Recently just got a ps3, it’s my first console since getting a 360 and my first purchase was this collection for it. Honestly, it feels great playing on a controller again since I’ve been mainly on PC with mouse and keyboard, I really missed rumble and I had no idea I did. Of course Kojima always worked out small details and the rumble on the controller was not neglected, it really adds to the experience of playing the games. I’m assuming the PC port has rumble built into it, if not you’ll be missing out!

Yokozuna ,

If some developers can magically combine the mech feel from this game and the customization from the armored core series, we would have one of the best mech games ever made. Both series did their respective game defining mechanics so well.

Yokozuna ,

I drive 20 minutes out of my way to shop at aldi rather than win-dixie (which they’ve bought recently) down the street for my monthly large shopping.

Yokozuna ,

I played the ever living hell out of Gen 1 and 2 and I can confindently say Gen 2 was a fucking masterpiece. I’ll never forget swimming from Johto to Kanto and the feeling that gave me. Also, Gen 3 was reaaaaaaaaaaaaally good.

Yokozuna ,

Fuck, it looks like I’m finally going to have to buy the Samurai Jack game.

Yokozuna ,

Onimusha!

Yokozuna ,

Yea, it’s a real banger. For the uninitiated, it’s set in Feudal Japan that plays like Resident Evil but with Demons instead of zombies. And they have one of the 3 titles on steam for a relatively fair price if you don’t have access to a ps2 and a physical copy.
