Pinned toot

Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).

I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. 💻

I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.

*GRID Autosport delisted from Steam*

Oh, fuck - and I cannot stress this enough - you, Codemasters.

I'm not the only one that finds it impossible to make 1st in the first season of GRID Autosport, right? It's not just me being absolutely shit at sim racing? :blobnervous:

Christ, I forgot the last Colin McCrae Rally game was a Unity-based mobile port. :blobfrowningbig:

Love it when a game's destruction derby mode can't even fucking register hits properly. :blobcoffeeunamused2:

Oh no, Ziggurat Interactive just started putting The Pinnacle of Entertainment Software up on digital stores. :oh_no:

Elite Dangerous, loud noise warning, drugs (medicinal) 

Some people should really fucking think before they try to "redesign" a game's sounds. :blobbandage:

Now is nobody minds, where the fucking paracetamol?

When is Hollywood going to realise that you don't need to shriek "LOOK AT US, WE'RE BASED ON A COMIC BOOK!" through the titles and ends credits of your adaptations?

Like, imagine if Lord of the Rings based its aesthetic on the musty auld printed word and had its opening titles and end credits swooshing through CGI paperbacks and shit.

Blargh, I need to get into my server and free up some space, I think, but I can't be arsed to recover my SSH key from my dead laptop right now.

Tipping Point (ITV), caps 

HE WAS ACTUALLY NAMED AFTER THE CAR BRAND. :blobastonished:

TIL that WipEout Pulse got a PS2 port. Well into the PS3's lifespan. :blobwaitwhat:

I guess there's an adaptation of Jupiter's Legacy now.

Like we needed another Millarworld adaptation. :blobbored:

Audio names are utterly pointless in DiRT Showdown, aren't they?

UK politics, Hartlepool(-)
