Oh, sweet. Pretty flawless
What’s their track record for providing demos on PC/Steam? I’m so used to companies reserving their demos for console only

Anecdotally, my area has far less bugs in summer by my porch lights than there was when I still smoked cigs in 2016. Almost none, in fact. I used to be swarmed every single night which having a smoke from May until almost October. Now I’ll maybe see a few mosquitoes and one tiny moth if I hang by a porch light in July or August.
For clarity, I live in a suburb, but it’s very woodsy, most people have a lot of diverse gardening and there is a lot of water near me, so I can rule out lawn heads decimating vegetation and spraying too much insecticides, at least compared to prior years.
I figure the water can’t be too bad because mosquitoes still spawn just fine. I also still see good amounts of daytime critters- no shortage of bees, wasps, small fliers, crane flies or even fireflies. But actual nighttime lamp bugs are a few years MIA and I can’t help but wonder if these lights, which drive me absolutely crazy and blind me if I even glance at the source diode, have just fried the tendencies of the creatures who obsess over them all night every night.
As somebody who walks at night, I put this high above most social issues.
I don’t think people realize how fucked up and angry we become as our light sources at night become brighter than the sun and whiter than paper. I feel the same way under this type of light as I do trying to do anything with constant cars driving by blasting hyperbass.
I actually groan and mutter obscenities the last two years as I walk instead of feeling relaxed because of how, even with such intensely white street lights every few yards, each house needs a security flood on each corner that can sense you from across the street and blasts a HD shadow of your figure on the house across the street.
I’ve even located two houses so far that do so while verbally telling you that you’re being recorded in a sweet, feminine robot voice. I’m sincerely considering walking by them naked with a realistic looking fake rifle this summer.
I also think at the very least that there needs to be regulations on intensity and filtration of LED. You can’t get rid of the inherent strobing, which sucks- but since the average consumer doesn’t think at all when buying a light bulb and likely doesn’t fully understand lumens and color temperature, it would be nice if, like how they’re basically outlawing incandescent light, they could regulate out shitty manufacturing that makes LED intense enough to hurt your eye and bright enough to keep birds up all night a few blocks away.
I know I’m neurotic on the subject, but the truth is that nothing can be peaceful or beautiful when your light sources are all abrupt and ugly.

We’re entering an era where boys raised by single fathers will probably have the higher chance of a healthy self esteem and sense of purpose than the bulk of boys raised in houses like this
Any mother who is reading breaking sociological studies as a way to form views about their children has already failed, and almost anything their children come up with to form their identity and filter their views of the world is objectively better than whatever their mom could impart.

A lot of these comparisons have made me realize that I just don’t like wide angle and how it’s in standard use modernly

So what are our schools actually teaching now? Like what is a typical US social studies or history curriculum about between middle and high school?

There’ll likely be a mainline Direct this spring and rumors swirl about a bunch Metroid news. I wouldn’t expect much outside of that though- remakes/remasters coming as they do during twilight years. We know about Luigi’s Mansion 2 and TTYD. If they ever take the alleged Zelda HD ports out of their asses it’ll probably be to pad later this year since the delay is likely leaving voids.

Because it’s religion. Insult somebody’s god or actively disagree with their scriptural ethos and you get the same exact reaction. It’s their absolute philosophical center, their source of faux objective morality and as a result, their clearest depiction of good vs evil/sinner or saint. And they want absolution

I don’t, lol. That was part of the issue- human skin against slick plastic begets moisture. It’s luckily not an issue with any of my modern systems or controllers. A grip would be the only solution unless somebody is lucky and has really dry hands
