Is it me or the world is going to the shitter maybe slowly but without any brakes at all?

It feels like US got overextended and after the crisis started retreating, the retreat isnt stopping any time soon and the territories that are being left starting falling into chaos. Shit is happening in the borders of Europe for like a decade now but it feels like its ready to spill over Europe...

Maybe i am too sleepy. Had a somewhat tiring day too.

Dear Ernst. It has come to my attention that I am completely lacking material goods in my life to satisfy my empty heart.
Have you, in recent times, grown excited for any piece of technology (phone, ereader,etc) or car or anything costing money that has piqued your pea brained attention span?
I can't think of anything besides wanting a modern smartphone without android or ios, running with a physical keyboard and such a thing simply will never exist in today's vapid consumer market.

Not sure what I would do with it, but I still think that's a pretty cool device. It can boot into multiple operating systems:

Kind of.
I also searching for more or less portable or compact device for mom. Android crap out of option, she more tihnk about something with windows, for some games also. And I kind of confusing. I don't want laptop, monoblocks not transportable enough and often have overpriced shitty specs, I want to look on this windows tablets with keyboards or something like that, but really don't know what to pick.

I've just released the indie game that I've been working on for the last months in early access mode on Steam. Please consider playing it and let me know about feedback for the final release (planned in spring).

The game is about a college student who gradually alienates from the social scene and ends up becoming consumed by his thoughts. His behavior becomes more and more erratic and in the end there is a climax.

I can't stand and hate the fact to no end that "visual novel" has become nothing but a byword for weeb shit and more hentai anime trash. That shovelware was clogging my goddamn screen so much it was the one and only thing that actually forced me to figure out a way to filter my recommendeds and such. To this day -anime is my one omitted tag, in addition to -nudity, because for some fucking reason a lot of anime trash still was getting around that filter. Since blocking -nudity from my results too I have been unharrassed by such spam.

God anime is such garbage. I simply cannot believe how much of it is polluting steam.

I am particularly annoyed by this just because "visual novel" basically describes a broad array of games that I actually like. For instance Planescape Torment and Tides of Numenera can both much more easily be called a visual novel than anything else--and no, I don't mean "comic book" bullshit either I mean a game that is actually much more like an interactive book than anything else. The main problem is if it's a good book, which in many cases it is not. P:T and T:ToN are both technically crpgs but really they're so far gone to that direction that I would basically describe them as visual novels, thus, I am constantly fucking angry whenever I see shit thrown around like "VN" because weeb garbage has basically tainted the tag to being nothing but hentai waifu shit.

Same. You write who you know, I guess?
Feels like the "increasingly detached outsider protag" is a response to contemporary culture and norms, so it's something the creative types can hang on to. Plus I don't doubt that a good chunk of imageboard users can be described as students/recent graduates with deteriorating/nonexistent social lives who end up consumed by their own anxieties/delusions.

I think we could use a thread for community events besides Radio Ernstiwan, but in the same spirit.

On that subject, tomorrow at 12pm noon Pacific Time (9pm in Central Europe), I will set up a room in cytube so that we can view documentaries and have serious discussions about them. All suggestions for quality documentaries on Youtube and Vimeo are appreciated, but if possible I encourage you to find a documentary relating to your home country, region, or city. For now we're stuck with hosted videos, but once we figure out a scheme for streaming from hard drive, we'll move over to that.

Ideally, this will be a weekly thing. If Saturdays at 12:00 Pacific/21:00 Central Europe don't work for you, tell us what time does work, so that we can schedule a better time next week.

Currently on Saturday's playlist:
A quaint piece of 1960s Americana, in the form of a charmingly optimistic documentary about my hometown in particular, and the problem of urban sprawl in general. Might be followed up by Fresno: The City Addicted to Crystal Meth.

If the list runs out, I know a few channels with a lot of really good content that we'll never exhaust.

So, cytu.be lets you stream videos stored in Google Drive, although you have to install Greasemonkey and a user script...

Feels a little sketchy, but if you guys are alright with it, this would let us watch whatever we want. Would be great for serious movie/documentary nights.

picrelated is a capture of people on cytu.be streaming a Harry Potter movie from Google Drive, so I know this is possible.

Sorry man, but there was nobody else in the room so I just gave up after half an hour. With such a small userbase on this site, it's pointless to do this without multiple people indicating that they'll be there, before the event starts.

Hello. Let me introduce me. I used to post on Krautchan, as the bunny chilean bernd. Since it demise a few months ago i decided it was a good time to take some time to do more productive things in my shitty life. Things are going smoother now, so i guess, since i have more time, i could go back and start posting again in some imageboard. After looking wide and long on the new colonies of good'ol KC, i have decided to settle here, for a while. I wish this place was a little more active, since there threads alive from June on the front page, and this place gives me the vibes more than a light version of Northpole than KC.
Since i dont want to waste a thread on a presentation, this is my third bunny. I got it from an old lady who captured her, and gave it to me because she didnt had any space to take care of it. Shes wild, so i had big trouble taking her out of her cave that day.

Marine tanks are more expensive?
>>
No. 33626
>>33612
Exorbitantly so. Not just in terms of maintenance and equipment and all that as well as being typically much more difficult to care for than cold or freshwater, but the fish themselves easily run into the hundreds of dollars for the smallest setup and the typical marine fish is easily like $40. In fact I'd say that $40 is pretty standard from what I've seen at a LFS with the absolute cheapest marine fish tending towards $20 a piece, and with the more expensive ones quite easily running up into $70 or $120 for even just one specimen.

Oh wow some of these are actually pretty cheap apparently
https://www.liveaquaria.com/category/871/marine-fish-sale?c=747+871

That yellow tang alone is close to a $50 fish.
A piece.
Now look at how many of those he had and you do the math. Iirc I saw a blue spot fish and a few parrot fish and so on, and the Tangs are probably the cheaper ones he's got.

Here's another list to give you an idea

New king's bounty.
Looks pretty bad, tbh. I really loved the cartoony art style of the original remake. It makes me even more paranoid about artists being replaced or obsoleted in modern game development, and game content being more and more reliant on photo reference instead.

Shame, because I was kinda looking forward to it, with my rekindled interest in turn based strategy games

>>36125
I mostly watched TES and Fallout related videos, as well as the thesis on what differentiates RPGs from action RPGs. I've had similar thoughts, but more on gameplay structure of games being fundamentally divided into graph traversal vs spatial orientation, and genres being defined by the proportion in which they are represented.
Text adventure games being on one end of the spectrum, and arcade FPS games in the other. One is comprised entirely of branching logical paths, the other is a space simulation where you have to traverse a simulated space and align a bunch of vectors together to win.

Gifts for me: scratch tickets, imported tea and fancy clothes.

Gifts for Mamá: scratch tickets, Kona coffee, winter vest and a Timex watch.

On scratch tickets, I spent $250 and grossed $280, which would be a $30 net. A far cry from last year, but I shouldn't complain about it. I don't do this often. In fact, I only buy scratch tickets during the holidays. Sometimes, you can win lots of money. Last year, I spent a similar amount and netted $300. A handsome win for a shitty year.

The first decade look backs are being released it seems. I did not click as I'm busy with something else.
The first decade in full consciousness for me. The first 5 years of 2010s are clouded in youthful drug consumption and problems tho :DDD I turned 18 in 2010 and went to my first real goa party a month before that. The later half is studying. I cannot even say what was relevant in the first half, despite analysis of the financial crisis. The last five years are migrants and /pol/itics. We could open a thread just for the 2010s as a decade, but maybe some Ernst want to give their look backs here, every dimension is welcome: personal or societal etc.

I only have memories of the second half of the decade. That's when I started reading and consciously working towards bettering my life.

Recently I've been looking through youtube channels I used to watch, and it's sad to see that most have either transformed their content for the worse, or stopped uploading at all. (But mostly just stopped uploading)
There's only one channel left from the Glory Days, and it makes me feel really weird. It's like I'm having butterflies in my stomach that content I used to watch is no more.

The weirdest feeling is that I know that my past self was fucking dumb, but I still don't feel an ounce smarter.

Alt tards are themselves clinical psychopaths more than anyone else. I haven't seen "leftists" committing any acts of terrorism in the last 20-30 years with the sole exception of Ted Kaczynski. Meanwhile we've had massive amounts of reactionary terrorism since then. It also doesn't seem to matter if they're in power or not. If they're not in power we get the Oklahamo City Bombing. If they are in power we get mass shootings at places of worship every month. If they get enough power we get the holocaust. This is because hardline reactionary ideologies stem from a central defect in personality also known as psychopathy. Hell the president we have right now is a clinical psychopath.
