Once remote gaming is good enough, a lot of games will move to game streaming services. You will own even less of them, it’ll all be Netflix-like.

The future will be having a client that can do the rendering and core gameplay (shooting, movement, damage…), but level and asset data streamed in, as well as high level gameplay (scoring, AI spawning and high level logic, quest structures…)
For wholly single player games.
It’s gonna be awful :)

Oh man… I’ll take games as a monthly service, but then there is no way i’m paying the 40-60$ upfront for a standard title. Its got to be one or the other.
Games should be a one off sale, the only thing in gaming that slightly sustains its value is the physical controllers.
Get an Xbox pad and play some nintendo games. Hell I adore nintendo, but i could only afford to buy a machine capable of making money, a personal computer. Nintendo putting games on Steam could be a game changer.
I don’t blame people for wanting to spend a couple of extra bucks to have fun, i only blame the companies when it gets predatory. I spent hundreds on Runescape, my mom spent likely as much on Candy Crush. The appeal is there, i’m just saying it’s not right.

>Blaming “the Hacker Known as 4chan” in the year of our lord 2022
Besides the fact that continues the idiot liberal trend of blaming everything but material conditions, I find it funny that progressives have taken up rightoid criticisms of 4chan from the mid-2000s (from the network that hosts the “great Satan” Tucker Carlson, no less) as indisputable fact. I would say I’m surprised, but given that I’ve bore witness to not only the wholesale rehabilitation of both Bush II and Dick “shoot-em in the back” Cheney by liberals, but the wholesale rehabilitation of the abominable John Money and his insipid “practices” on gender, nothing really surprises me anymore; at least not within the political sphere.

4chan may not be the reason the alt-right and general shittiness is on the rise, but it’s undeniable that shitty people coalesce on 4chan and a whole lot of people that started browsing the site for funny memes or art or porn ended up fucked in the head after the constant, incessant, site-wide misogyny, antisemitism, racism, nihilism, etc. that now practically defines what the site is all about.

Not really in my experience, as that tends to be relegated to the containment boards like /pol/ and /int/. I’ll occasionally see posts in /sci/ or /his/ about race-science and “muh lack of African civilisational advancement” respectively, but the usual inhabitants will tell them to “fuck off back to /pol/”
The problem with the “blame 4chan” discourse now is the same problem as it has always been: people conflating what they hear about the site with the site itself. It’s akin to saying “Derpibooru is filled with racist, misogynist, art thieves” because someone uploaded that Applejack’s Plantation piece and it got a lot of upvotes. It was stupid when they said it about this site, and it’s stupid when people think that 4chan is just /b/ and /pol/.
As for the people who claim to be “radicalised by 4chan,” they were going to be radicalised anyway. Why? To quote myself:
To liberals, radicalism, be it Islamist or incel or nationalist or whatever, isn’t caused by material conditions and/or circumstances outside the radical’s controls, but by “bad people with evil messages.” Abroad you see this manifest as them [liberals] blaming radical Islamist preachers or even radical Islam itself, and not the fact that the west is blowing the shit out of and mistreating Muslims in their home countries; or the ascendancy of the far-right being caused by “misinformation and dangerous propaganda” on social media and the internet more broadly, and not economic dislocation and the erosion of opportunities felt by people alienated by society. At home you see this manifest as, well, “all Trump supporters are racist, sexist, transphobic, xenophobes,” as if they’re what’s motivating his supporters, and not them suffering under neoliberalism as well.
Nigh all the bad shit we see has material underpinnings, and it reminds me of something my uncle once said: “How do you measure the mental anguish caused by not knowing when or where your next paycheque is?” with the point being that if you harm people’s material well-being, you can’t act surprised when they act out because of it. You want to get rid of “misogyny, antisemitism, racism, and nihilism”? You make sure people are looked after materially, because once material concerns are resolved, people have much less reason to be racist or sexist or whateverist, because they don’t perceive that ‘x’ group is being unfairly rewarded with limited resources.
Or I don’t know, do anarcho-capitalism and implement the Purge to deal with grumbly proles.

You can’t seriously believe that shit limited to just a couple boards, right? It’s everywhere, pervasive, and passively accepted with the “go back to /pol/” types being the minority.
Never mind how the site’s worst boards are the most active boards. The few boards with an established culture of consistently and effectively pushing out /pol/ types have become the containment boards, not the other way around.

Even 4chan itself starts to realize how shitty it is:

That’s the problem with alt-right. If you are not explicitly opposed to them, they will infest your spaces and regular people will leave. In the end, you are left surrounded by bigots.
Here’s the thing, once you allow these alt-right people in your community, it will be very difficult to get them out, since alt-right folk use very manipulative language.

U mad?
Check this out.
So Disney made a tweet about the 50th anniversary of Disney World in Florida. The comments section is filled with not just righties saying they won’t go there because of their “wokeness”, there’s lefties saying that too because of it being in Florida. Pretty amusing to see both sides blasting them, while pretty much ignoring each other.

Oh I know it. Just look at this very fandom, particularly on the sites that formed after Derpi tried to ban hate imagery.
I checked Ponybooru - a “free speech” alternative to Derpi I found being promoted by one of the more popular pony artists currently boycotting Derpi because of Rule 0 and the attempt to remove Aryanne. Ponybooru’s politics general’s latest hits include:
-At least one overt call for violence against left-leaning people.
-Widespread use of slurs in the course of conversation - particularly ableist, homophobic, and transphobic varieties.
-Cheering on Putin’s “special military operation” against Ukraine, complete with uncritical acceptance of Russian media’s account of things.
-Calling Boris Johnson a “conservacuck” and accusing him of letting “millions of Pakistanis” into the UK, as well as some drivel about “rape gangs.”

I always wonder how this correlates to actual attendance. There’s plenty of factors involved like the corona outbreak and the parks becoming more expensive that drove down attendance too. So i wonder what impact that these people actually make or if its also just vocal minorities that wouldn’t show up on a chart anyways.
And how many of these people say one thing and do the opposite as they gotta have their regular dose of Disney™

If WDW in Florida is anything like Disneyland in Cali, no thank you. Hell, I’ve rode much better rides at Six Flags over Texas near Dallas and even at Lagoon in my own back yard.

That is a really clever observation. Most people can be made passive by unconditionally pleasing their basic needs and providing entertainment, movies like Wall-E entertain this concept, which I personally believe to be a bit dystopic. A lot of people on the extreme right act contrary to their material well-being, there is actually a problem with suicidal and self-destructive tendencies at the most extreme. They want to destroy the world, they see history as a snake eating its own tail.
Do you think liberalism is by necessity materialist?

Florida is being ran by a wannabe dictator so I get why people don’t want to go there but I think it is childish to make Florida suffer because of that. Right wingers hating Disney is more of a political thing. Mid terms are coming up so Republicans are pushing the culture war thing really hard.
