  1. You have a point. I'm using Manjaro Xfce, so compared to that Kde is pretty resource heavy. Compared to explorer though it might actually be lighter. I forgot how sluggish Windows can be.
  2. I didn't know you could replace the windows shell. After looking up I noticed Cairo which has cool stuff and a discontinued Kde shell. Either of those might make win10 more tolerable. Though , that being said Cairo and definitely that Kde shell (if it works and you can find it) will also hog resources.
  3. I looked up Amy's bio and come to the conclusion that the reason Sonic isn't that into her isn't because she's prepubescent (I couldn't find her age tbh) but that's she's an over obsessed fan who is stalking him. From https://sega.fandom.com/wiki/Amy_Rose Sonic the Hedgehog is Amy's love-interest as she cares very deeply for the blue hedgehog and marvels at all his personal traits. Most often, Amy gets involved in the story while searching for Sonic or trying to find information about his whereabouts. She tends to plunge ahead at first glimpse of his figure, this prompting unusual confrontations as she embraced both Shadow the Hedgehog during the events of Sonic Adventure 2 as well as Silver the Hedgehog in Sonic '06, though the latter was dissolved as part of the storyline. Post edit: The next dungeon will be on System Shock 2. It has a great soundtrack, it has a great story and not a lot of people have covered it.
  4. You should check out an app called Rainmeter. From what I understand, it allows win10 users the type of customization usually seen only in linux (specifically KDE). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainmeter https://www.rainmeter.net/ a demo of possible skins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzWaUVXri5g
  5. Edit: The guy above is right about the devil trains. They are kind of lame
  6. Couldn't agree more. Usually, I don't find horror games that scary, unnerving at times sure, but not frightening. This game for whatever reason scares the shit out of me, and I can only play for a short time before I nope the fuck out. The level and sound design is excellent and the writing is not too bad. The puzzles are a little on the easy side though. Still, it's a game worth checking out.
  7. I get where you are coming from, so here's a search text that helped me when I first began: how to do [insert your thing] in Ubuntu, Arch ect. Also, this webpage lists the more important debian bash commands as well as the pacman/yay https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Rosetta so this will definitely help a newcomer. It should also be said that you can double click on icons even icons for windows programs if you have wine installed. This all being said though, learning all this shit isn't for everyone, and maybe there should be a more watered down linux os for the average joe that is still open sourced.
  8. That encoding related stuttering you described sounds like a memory leak. Also, were you using Google Hangouts or Gmail while your web browser was open? Those cause memory leaks on my PC all the time.
  9. I see where you're coming from but I don't actually have that problem as long as it has the right context. So for plots, like Phantasmagoria 2, Slaugterhouse 5, Perfect Blue, which are about mental illness turning out to be all inside the protagonist's head is perfectly fine by me. Whereas, with stories like St. Elsewhere, Dallas., FFX ect., where that kind of plot element just appears out of nowhere without any real context or reason I find it to be kind of a cop out and really a sign of bad writing.
  10. I fucking knew that it was going to be one of the Phantasmagorias! On one of few Halloweens where I can't go out this made day! If I had known how deeply brilliant this plot actually is I would have bought this when it came out. For those who this isn't obvious: Curtis clearly suffers from a borderline-personality and ptsd. This explains the dissociation (feeling that he's alien, in an alien world, blacking out, and having a split personality), delusions, self depreciation along with severe self loathing, risk taking behavior and his chemical dependency(alcohol). Most of those "chemicals" that Ross mentioned are anti-depressants and pain killers except Fluconazole. Interestingly Flucanazole is normally prescribed for vaginal yeast infections and when combined with amitriptyline it can cause suicidal thoughts and actions. I suspect that this may have been the real reason his mother committed suicide. I also suspect that the entire plot may have actually been some sort of immersive therapy or Curtis simply working out his shit. Anyways, thanks Ross for the great vid and I am definitely going to play this now.
  11. This game is awesome! The atmosphere, the variety in skill sets, the fast and visceral combat that is still tactiful, and as arpg's go the storyline is actually kind of interesting. One of my all time favs for sure.
  12. I briefly worked for Apple's helpdesk call center and can answer this. Apple doesn't purposefully slow down their older iphones with the new updates. They just generally roll them out without giving any fucks as to whether the old hardware can handle it or not. This happened to the iphone6 during my first week out of training and iirc there was actually a post-update patch for it and I had to play damage control in the meantime. Granted the iphone6 was still pretty popular back then and I'm guessing they wouldn't do that for a lesser used phone.
  13. Hey Ross, are you a minotaur? Do you enjoy traipsing about maze-like levels and going in circles for countless minutes because you didn't know what that switch did or where that last colored door is? Then holy fuck this throwback is for you! ...it is fun if you can get past that though.
  14. I'm was truly surprised at the sheer quality and attention to detail that this mod has. Like the dude above me said, this way better than the newer AAA Wolfensteins. Another excellent Doom mod to check out is Ashes 2063.
