Anybody out there using Garry’s Mod?

We switched computers, and now when my kid tries to run it Garry’s Mod keeps trying to re-download all of the add-ons. This takes days, literally. It runs normally when we take the game offline, but then we can’t find any of the add-ons that should be there normally. We’re stumped.

The “Now this is just some BULLSH*T” ASSASSIN’S CREED: VALHALLA video game trailer.

That this is, indeed, some bullsh*t will not stop me from picking up Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, now that they’re back into a time period that’s interesting to me. But this is still some bullsh*t:

Via Coming Soon. Vikings are cool but they were still horrible at visits. I don’t particularly blame the English for deciding to object to that. And if they have Brian Boru saying anything besides póg mo thóin to the protagonist then my eyes are just gonna permanently roll like this.

So, the Oculus Rift insists you install to C.

I had to command prompt to make decide otherwise. This has been a problem for four, five years, apparently. And they wonder why VR goes nowhere…

Trust me: I WANTED to get the Sony VR, actually. But it’s not my blessed birthday present.

…All right, FINE. I give up! I’ll take the damn loan from Tom Nook!

Yes! I bought Animal Crossing! I had to go to the Target to get my wife’s (non-coronavirus) prescription, it was there at 2/3rds the price that’s being charged online, and I bought it! I’ll even think about playing it, just so that Twitter gets slightly less incomprehensible to me*! I’ve joined the damned collective! Now will all of those people stop talking about the game? It’s worse than Harry Potter references at this point!

*I know, I know: that’s a fool’s errand.

Fallout 76: Wastelanders has dropped.

Details here. I expect that I will check it out, some time this afternoon: I badly want to play a Fallout 76 with an actual point, but I got stuff to do today. A bunch of stuff that I shouldn’t put off.

Besides, bandwidth is more of an issue in the morning these days.

Behold.

I think my reaction can be summed up as follows:

First look at the new PS5… controller.

Let’s be honest: the PS5 is not gonna hit its holiday 2020 release window at this point. We’re losing entire months here, folks. But you can see the new controller:

So, I’m going to try out Disco Elysium.

Which I want to keep calling “Disco Asylum.” I wonder if I’m the only one to do that. Disco Elysium isn’t on Amazon, but it is on Steam Sale, and apparently everybody thinks it’s awesome. Guess we’ll see…

Happy Pokemon Day!

…Don’t look at me like that: I have a kid, remember? Pokemon Go! is how we get him to go outside, walk around, and get some fresh air. Plus, it’s a fun game in its own right*.

So. Happy Pokemon Day!
