Microsoft Windows 10 has a lot of skills, but "a good touchpad experience" isn't one of them.

I played No Man's Sky VR last night with a bunch of people that were playing on console. The gap between my immersion and theirs was immense.

At one point in the night, when we were about to get into a space battle with some pirates, I said "hang on, I need to figure something out." In VR, you see, you actually have to grip the throttle and flight stick and fly the ship, which is a different motion that most players (like me!) are used to. There's no muscle memory there.

The act of feeding and petting the fauna was amazing. I could *pet* the beasts. The console players were constantly hitting odd little things like that, making them wish they were in VR.

Also, for those wondering, NMS does seated VR very well, so if that's interesting to your situation, there you go.

@stolas one of my favorite games of its genre, hands down.

If you have $4 and like cyberpunk, help me put some food in my kids' mouths!
"This is secretly the greatest and also funniest cyberpunk point and click adventure game on Steam. Very low-fi art style but the gags are just too good to pass up, and a lot closer to a "real" cyberpunk dystopian future than most favorites of the genre."

I picked up some $5 earbuds today. On one hand I was like "yay! $5 earbuds!" but then I was like "yep. $5 earbuds..." You know?

Space Channel 5 VR is coming to platforms I have access to! I'm kind of excited, tbh.

I am kind of surprised that I don't hate Android as much as I used to. Google can eat a bag of canoes, though.

Here's an unsettling fact: parler app is the top 3 free app on the play store.

It's crazy. ThinkPads from like 2010 are cheaper (and better) than broken ones from the mid 90s.

Cleaning out the fridge, or as my detractors and critics call it, "eating all the leftovers while everyone is asleep."

@magicalmilly my late-night gaming crew is all about it, which is a pleasant change of pace from the rest of voice chat.

so 100% agree!

I wish I could get body types out of VRoid that I identify with better. I *like* being a large dude.

ok, but websites trying to honor my desktop light/dark theme selection is kind of creepy.
