PSA: Katamari Damacy Reroll has been released yesterday.
These games are super weird and fun and at a price of 29$/20€ I would 100% recommend it! In general I'd recommend any of the Katamari games.

Obsidian’s is creating a new RPG called "The Outer Worlds" which takes place in space on a far away planet.
The #Fallout76 Soundtrack is a masterpiece. Not only does it fit the visuals and the game well, it gives a sense of exploration and danger. It feels "big". I love it!
Inon Zur, who also composed the Soundtracks for Fallout 3 and 4, did an amazing job. I hope Bethesda keeps working with him for future projects!
Here's a short article about why federated services are a good idea, and how all of us use them all the time (even if we don't realise it):
The idea of federated social media like Mastodon, Diaspora, PeerTube etc is to give users more control over their social network and personal data.
Some time ago I made a little Node module which checks if a string is a palindrome called "palipali".
You can also install it with NPM:
$ npm i palipali
$ yarn add palipali
#Email is the oldest and most popular way to communicate online.
However, some email providers don't respect privacy. For example, Gmail reads your mail and lets third parties read it too.
There are much more privacy-friendly email providers out there, for example:
I praised the game in my B.E.T.A review
But right now I am concerned if this will run for long enough to properly enjoy it - let alone getting more content.
Don't get me wrong: #Fallout76 has a lot of potential and the game itself (story, world) is amazing.
The game client is just unstable as are the servers. This game should not have been released so soon.
- Game is released and full of bugs
- Servers are super unstable
- 2 weeks after release the game is almost 50% off! Fuck people who pre-ordered I guess?
- The $200 collector's edition comes with a cheap nylon bag instead of a high quality bag as advertised because the "material costs were higher than anticipated"??
- Compensation for people who bought the $200 edition is $5 of in-game currency
Check your #npm dependencies! If you're using "event-stream" by dominictarr you are vulnerable to malicious code trying to steal crypto currency.
The package is quite popular and used in a lot of third party modules so better check your projects!
Bethesda is now directly communicating with folks on r/fo76 regarding all the issues with #Fallout 76. I highly welcome them taking this community serious.
r/fo76 is full of good critic and even appreciate for a game that's way too broken at the moment. I hope BGS can fix these issues soon because at the moment it's really hard to enjoy the game.
