Honestly there is something seriously wrong with EA games and whoever buy them when it gets to this point…



Sure, it’s a MOBA made by Tencent featuring Pokémon from every generation, and it’s gonna be out for both mobile and the Switch.


Interesting to see they advertising this with Jedi Fallen Order, Valve really has faith in Proton and I love it.








Gotta love how backwards their excuse for data collection is…

You don’t have to share data with the authorities, if you don’t have data to share. Example: Signal.









Unfortunately that website is pretty right-leaning, so I knew what to expect when I entered the link: both article and comments section are anti #metoo and already picked the accused’s side, they will always pick that side.

I’ve been keeping an eye on posts linking to this site for a while and I don’t like it, but it’s not breaking any rule I guess, so I let it be.






If this would be the case the conversation would be different; it would be on how we can improve the situation of video games as a medium in order to make it less toxic

This is not a business meeting to brainstorm ideas, this is a court, Apple is defending themselves on court, they don’t give a F about what is or isn’t in EGS, as long as EGS stays away from their walled garden, that’s the whole freaking point. But anyway, all they care about in that court is to defend themselves against Epic, not to brainstorm how to fix gaming or whatever, and they made a good goddamn point for their defense using the Itch store in EGS.

EDIT: and just to make it clear, I know, they just want to control and take a bite from every source of monetization they can on iOS. BUT, as long as they use curation as an argument, bringing up Itch on EGS is a good godamn point in their defense. It has nothing to do with attacking small projects that are not even in the same business segments as Apple or whatever.


Usually I’m on the fuck Apple side, but context is important:

Epic hasn’t reviewed all these games, and Apple noted that its standards are different from the Epic Games Store’s. The list includes, per Apple’s attorney, a game called Sisterly Lust that includes “a list of fetishes which include many words that are not appropriate for us to speak in federal courts.”

They are using Epic’s failure to ensure that 3rd party store is complying with their own standards guidelines, in a case about Apple’s refusal to accept 3rd party stores in iOS. I am against walled gardens myself, but heck they did make a good point with Itch in this case.


But the buyout might have made it easier to push some people away from it. “Look what happened to Skype!”, etc etc.


Lmao I actually had a few laughs going through this guy’s post history, good troll, I rate it 6/10.

And he even has a funny new community. Ok, I will bump it up to 7/10.


Not twisting anything, just pointing out the hypocrisy in the quoted text.

Also I’m at work, so I won’t dig in his past behavior on the internet for you now, but I am not the only one mentioning this stuff, which also had a part on RMS’s resign years ago, so there is little reason to still bring his misogyny into question today on 2021. Guy’s a boomer with some outdated boomer views, but being a boomer doesn’t excuse him for not updating his views.


One can speak whatever the hell they want as long as it is not racist, xenophobic or provoking crime

But misogyny is where you draw the line?


Now I want someone from The Hard Times or The Onion to make a panic article about terrorists using Tramontina branded spoon to eat soup ngl.


Oh thanks! I thought you were gone from Lemmy haha, welcome back!


Well, if you came here expecting it to be like Gab, it’s not, I’m sorry, this place still have rules.


Not even close, Telegram is worse than even WhatsApp when it comes to cryptography. In fact, years ago a corrupt politician got his schemes to put Brazil’s ex-president Lula in jail exposed because his messages weren’t E2EE.

Kinda crazy to think, but if he was using the dominant app in the country, WhatsApp, that wouldn’t have happened.


Next we need sales info of Google and Microsoft, Apple’s main competitors, whose have as much to do with this case as Valve does.


Not really into competitive on cartridge, and the only time I really bred something was when I was trying to get a female Charmander so I could breed her too for Belly Drum.

I used to play Showdown, but haven’t done that since some time last year.




Tbh I don’t even expect to hear about Metroid from them anymore, when it happens, it happens. But it would have been nice getting an update on MP4 for sure…
