What an inspiration. I think I'll come up with a resolution for myself.

Instead of venting about how school a decade or so ago destroyed us all with mediocrity I think I'll read news and keep a record of all the positive things like funds being spent on computers so that one day the computers can be used all the time and not just 5 minutes per week.

I think some day I will be a big enough person to apologize for my shortcomings and it'll go something like this "If I had social skills I wouldn't be self employed. Actually I think every social interaction damaged my mental model because of how I remember things. God bless the internet, I didn't have to talk to anyone for the past XX years I never visited a forum. Finding out everyone has mental problems wasn't a positive experience. I'm sorry I couldn't blame someone and run to strangers for help, I just had to go look for the real problem that made me the bunny I was and if it were a problem someone else had I'd probably be told to f off and mind my own business while they take care of it."  Maybe the internet will have a different name by then.

Alright it's fine to get support from other people. Could this use any other changes?

I heard they'll be using ai algorithms for various institutions in the future. As long as it's used for better pattern recognition, I like the idea, because humans are terrible at it.

If we believe it makes sense to put the most dangerous age of children together the ai should be able to tell us we're wrong, that would be something.

CRAZY NINTENDO SPECULATION TIME
With the advent of Google stadia and all the big one having a similar back up plan. I feel like nintendo is pressured to find a plan B if it caught on and makes console obsolete ... I think this plan is VR ... recent Labo VR experimentation are surprisingly random and tied to the big hitter (odissey, smash, zelda, only missing is mario kart).

Anyone who follow nintendo long enough know that all their random innovation had precedent, like that wario ware motion control and that weird yoshi game having motion sensor in the cartridge. We just don't know what will the ultimate form be like.

VR is great for nintendo because they have the IP to support it, the knack for experience and teh lateral thinking. But more importantly, that help them still keep an hardware. I mean they are dipping in mobile but not fully commited, they have plan Bs all around. The universal theme park and the Imagination's movie are all part of the of strenghtening IP in case they became reliant on other's services and hardware (streaming + mobile). VR allow them to stay independant. They also have dipped in AR too, thought they don't own their biggest success (pokemon go).

I feel like the next rumored switch PRO, might be a VR one.

Also I feel like they are teaming up with Monolith (xenoblade) to produce a full scale RPG zelda like skyrim (the director of xenoblade want to dethrone skyrim, it has really left an impression on them, and aonuma specifically name dropped skyrim while doing botw). Monolith is hiring people who has experience on open world and action games ... and people found out that one of their mock up released to announced a coded named project had element of zelda lore in it (triforce and royal symbol, which put suspicion on the other piece of concept art that features a blond girl everyone is guessing now might be zelda)

Lack of feature, they're using their money to get exclusive deals, the scrolling is laggy. Point is, people are reluctant to click a different icon when launching their games.

Joking aside though, the point about them buying the market instead of making it better is valid. They're not really offering a better alternative to steam from the perspective of players, they're just giving more moneys to midrange "AA" studios to put pressure on valve.

Its a weird piece of software made by some frenzied cyprus bizdevs.
Steam satisfies people at 670% and epic store tries to justify its existence with madeup problems while offering nothing.
On the other side of iron curtain our own sergey galyonkin said "devs are not interested in what gamers write" which is true, but that was answer on user reviews and forum functionality. Right now people search steam for guides and technical problems. The rest is incomprehensible gibberish about built in influencer traffic revenue system.
"We give more to devs than steam" motto was tested and failed when they made exclusivity deals and discount without informing devs.
For people who argue "its just a launcher" its not, its drm, which means everything you bought there may vanish one day. At least steam seem like its there to stay while epic were flushing everything down the toilet for good decade. And hey, keeping several separate libraries with different paswords is some discomforting clutter, its not some lazy entitlement thing.
Its also in bed with Tencent, which is under chinese government heel and there is some concern over how they handle data. Sergey Galyonkin seems like a treacherous dog.

The thing is, steam does not actually force drm on games. This is something people get wrong ridiculously often. Steamworks drm is optional for devs and in fact, a large part of your steam library is probaly drm free, unbeknownst to you (as in you can open the game folder, double click the game exe and run the game without the steam launcher running.)

Valve doesnt advertise drm free games in any special way, probably to curb piracy, so thats why it's relatively little known.

I've argued in favor of epic on this in the past, but I've come around. I still think using tencent as an argument in this is dumb and vaguely xenophonic, but every other argument here is sound, and the mismanagement of sales had disenchanted me from the promise of a better deal for devs.

Not very epic indeed.

I have a hypothetical moral dilemma.

If gluten disorders enter the mainstream medicine and there's no way to directly cure the disease, it's unlikely everyone will recover and food industries won't bend the knee. The survivor guilt is unavoidable so I'm just dealing with it now.

Re epic store

It's the stealing of game announced for steam (with page and pre order up) and backed from kickstarter that start the fire.

There is a propaganda that is used to diminish the movement and try to low key lump it with "bad thing with gamer number65840 using sampled quotes.

But it's really started as "WTF I already paid that game on/for steam!" + security concern due to shoddy parctice from epic (like massive leaks of users info)

Of course over time IT did compound with bad thing, but this time it's a muuddy mess of all side adding crap.
- some old school press people using that as a way to curb youtuber influence, linking the movement to alt right/gamergate fallout.
- some Dev using that to justify breaking promise
- of course the seedy element of gamer are going out to use that as blunt tool to justify their agenda.

It's a fucking bloody mess right now of shouting context. I'm just ignoring it.
