Album 18 - Friends and ramen - nuff said.

Album 19 - Another festival - Tons of video in this one. My favorites are the jazz band. The one where the dude loses his sheet music is fantastic.

Album 20 - Bus hike - Went some places I'm feeling too lazy to explain, but they included a temple and an old Edo-era town that they turned into a tourist trap. It was fun but a little too rushed, didn't get to explore the town much.

Album 21 - Massive fireworks in Nagano - They have a big fireworks festival there which is just incredible. I've never seen anything like it, doubt I ever will again. Mostly video here, but a lot of it is worth watching. The longer clips of the 2+ minute displays are great. It was about an hour of actual fireworks time, different groups putting on different displays. And we were close. The only downside is it was FREEZING. As soon as we stood up to leave I realized how cold I was and felt like I was going to die. haha

Album 22 - Daio Wasabi Farm - Kind of is what it says on the tin, but it was quite pretty and there were some interesting cultural additions like statues and shrines on the property. Was a fun and interesting trip.

Album 10 redux - Matsumoto - I always add stuff to this one, so there's always kinda more in it. Now included.

Lots of hopes riding with this one, Microsoft purchase of Obsidian notwithstanding.  Save the scene, guys, if even just for a little while.

Pretty interesting. I don't know how it'll go, but there's potential for some real shake-up at this point. Unless Steam makes itself a lot more attractive, they could start losing people. Sure, there are less people invested in the other two platforms, but at the same time, both have huge momentum: Epic from Fortnite and a really strong start to their store (plus a nice design), and Discord with a huge established user base from its existing product, which is kind of what everyone uses now. Those are real threats.

There's an attractive alternative, though: go play a game that's actually good instead.

Sounds like a bunch of whiners to me. Only people that should be upset is if they bought the game fairly recently. That would be a bummer. But a lot of these reviews seem to be from people with hundreds to thousands of hours in the game. I think you guys got your moneys worth.

Cheaters is a legit worry since you can make dummy steam accounts and get right back into CSGO now. Youd lose the "prime matchmaking" unless you buy it so at least that would keep cheaters in the non-prime matchmaking...which sucks for everyone else that isnt prime.

So, starting in 2019, we are going to extend access to the Discord store and our extremely efficient game patcher by releasing a self-serve game publishing platform. No matter what size, from AAA to single person teams, developers will be able to self publish on the Discord store with 90% revenue share going to the developer. The remaining 10% covers our operating costs, and we’ll explore lowering it by optimizing our tech and making things more efficient.

Yeah. I guess those plans were likely already in the works well before Fallout 76 took a shit on their reputation. Had it not been for that it wouldn't have seemed like such a bad move.

Nah, I get it. You kinda need a "killer app" to get people on board with something like this and a sequel to Rage doesnt seem like a game to fit the bill. But hey, maybe they have high hopes for it after how well Doom was received. Though Fallout 76 kinda sucked all the enthusiasm for Bethesda out of the room.
