A few episodes into listening to Punch Up The Jam for the first time; I'm enjoying it a lot, but I think it might be the first podcast I've heard that makes me worry for the amount of effort that's obviously put into each episode by its hosts https://soundcloud.com/punchupthejam/your-song-punchup
More than anything, I hope it means they're desperate for business and suck at managing their finances, because it struck me as tone-deaf considering the location. Sure, I'll gather ambrosia from this Grecian palace between picking up the kids from school and getting Arby's
Thanks for the likes, replies, and well-wishes, everyone; I find myself too frequently occupied with trivial nonsense or personal hang-ups to make art or initiate conversation most of the time, so it means a lot that people care regardless <3
Related, I think I'll set this new capture device up in a way that provides easy access to the HDMI connectors for all the devices I want to stream, so I can physically switch them at a moment's notice; this should free me from the awful Steam port of Final Fantasy XIII
Some streamers are fine with running games directly from their streaming PC, but many modern games are so hungry for resources at every resolution that I don't think I'm comfortable running OBS on top of them
It turns out a selection of new capture cards process video in a way that makes them Linux-compatible out of the box. This makes using my media PC as a streaming rig a far easier proposition, which makes my much more powerful desktop PC an option as a machine to run games on
FFXIV surprisingly works on laptop settings, but nowhere near a smooth 60FPS at any resolution; this is the one that had me dig out an HDMI cable to connect my desktop PC to my TV. Useful for if I ever decide to stream it again, though
Tried out Mirror's Edge: Catalyst on this machine, and I'm surprised it runs above 30FPS on Medium settings; there was a brief bummer moment when I noticed animated billboards weren't working, but disabling the ingame GPU memory restriction fixed it completely
If anyone in chat accuses me of playing with cheats, glitches, and hacks I can just respond with "well yeah, how else would you run these games on a PC outside Windows"
I still have to test out Yakuza 0 for an hour or so and get an RCA-to-Bluetooth adapter for audio, but it's looking like when I execute my plan of streaming both Y0 and Final Fantasy XIII they'll both be through this machine running the WINE Proton fork at glorious 720p
Campaign's over; that was fantastic. This game does a far better job of justifying its own existence than I'd have expected from a sequel that attempts to replicate the structure of its predecessor
Second injection done! Feeling good, and looking forward to roughly a year of not experiencing a silent background worry every single time I cough following a visit to a public space
Hey everyone, follow me to the site of the game's next murder case! It's a sealed chamber with a mysterious whirring sound every 30 minutes, after which the floor gently shakes. It is IMPOSSIBLE to tamper with the timer that causes this, which I mention for no reason at all
