My internet's being wacky but if at all possible, I'll be streaming my first playthrough of Deltarune Chapters 1 & 2 at the top of the hour (streaming on Twitch, same username as on here)

Last month (which I skipped, this month I outright cancelled) had both Mordhau and Maneater, each of which were recovering from their own respective developer scandals IIRC

Show thread

For rates starting at a paltry $15, in addition to [year-old retail release] and [Humble original], you can get up to 8 additional games you've never ever heard of, each representing a different genre in its own generic art style! There's fun to be found here, I assure you

Show thread

A few games in their selection are good, but I think the problem with Humble Choice isn't so much the lack of big marquee games as it is the people who curate the selection having just absolutely dreadful taste

Outer Wilds DLC impression (minimal spoilers) 

Three and a half hours in, just ended a session by ending before a designated stopping point, quitting the game, and taking off the headset while saying to myself "Whew! Haha, OK! Lot of information there! All right, then!"

Today's stream was super fun, thanks to everyone who showed up! I'll be starting my new twice-weekly schedule this coming Tuesday by taking a break between Yakuzas with the Deltarune Chapters 1 & 2 demo

Gonna take a quick shower and start this up, 2021 was a bad year but I'll be ending it (and this thread) on a high note

Show thread

Still learning the basics of Linux use after all this time, I only recently found out that CPU/GPU power consumption profiles are conservative until you manually change them. It explains why I'd been getting middling framerates in recent games, at least

Another (nearly) six hours later, the gruesome grind of Real Estate Royale is done at last, clearing the runway for Yakuza 0's dramatic story to reach its end next stream

Show thread

Starting this stream, I'll be the best property management executive ever (a fictional one)

Show thread

Six hours of streaming later, Majima's management minigame is complete! I'll be swapping on over to Kiryu next time for more Real Estate Royale, and I'll be continuing December's every-day-I-feel-like-it schedule for as long as it takes to beat it and hit story credits

Show thread

Spent way too much time testing out graphics settings, I am still committed to streaming more Cabaret Club Czar today (and I might make today's a double-header after dinner depending on how I'm feeling)

Show thread

Just got home from a big public transit trip and I'm beat; I have no idea when I'll crash for the day but I'm sure when I do it'll be spectacular

The phone controller app experience leaves much to be desired, it disconnects between songs and keeps wanting to pair with my PS4. I also feel like I'd need to buy a wrist strap as insurance against accidentally chucking this device at a nearby sensitive piece of electronics

Show thread

Cancelled the screwdriver order, I'll be skipping to the "if this doesn't work" option instead

Show thread

Anyway, if this doesn't work I'll use the phone controller app for now, and the next installment I buy will be on Switch. I gladly made use of this interface throughout its entire lifespan on 360/XB1 and then some, I'm not going to spend too much longer carrying this torch

Show thread

It rules that modern console manufacturers can't make a controller that lasts even when it's a static camera the player doesn't touch

Show thread

Ay-yi-yi, noticed the Kinect was turning off and on. Buying a T10 security screwdriver so I can open it up to disengage the wires connecting its fan to a thermal sensor, which should fix it (at the cost of an overactive fan) according to a blurry repair video I found

Show thread

I had no idea starting this that Yakuza 0's management minigames each comprised a separate campaign of comparable length to the main story! I am still very much enjoying it, though I'll have to pull out the stops if I want to finish this before the end of the year

Show thread

Visited my partner's family for a holiday dinner yesterday, and today we spent the morning driving through snow to get groceries; I'll be taking the opportunity to unwind with more Cabaret Club Czar at the top of the hour
