I had a busy Friday, but I didn't want another empty week. I rather release a day later, than none at all, now. As usual if you want to follow this linkblog, you can do it via RSS.

Thank you, and have a great weekend!

First weekend without social media

by parasurv

On Friday I made a commitment to myself: no social media for this weekend. This includes pleroma, youtube (except ASMR, Jimmy Broadbent, music and funny videos - however exclude vegan debates, and others), and reddit.

I've never done this before, I was always kind of an addict. Like even if I knew that it's bad for me, because I could be so angry sometimes, and I just couldn't stay away, and checking many times what others are saying. It's not healthy for me, and it was clearly an addiction. I gave too much crap what others are saying either about me, or the stuff I am interested in.

It's much better now though. I never had a smartphone and my tablet is just sitting in the drawer (it has screen problems, basically useless), and I can control my urge much better, than before. However I felt that this week for me was a little bit too much on pleroma and I wanted to take a break. It's also a challenge for me, and I am so glad I am doing this. Here is how my Friday went and a possible result of it.

Opinion: Shadow Warrior 2

by parasurv

Honestly I didn't play the original Shadow Warrior that much. I played Duke Nukem 3D a lot more back in the day. But it was a nice game, since who doesn't want to use a sword in an FPS game?

Later when the first reboot came out, we could only dream that Shadow Warrior would come to Linux, but eventually it did, and I bought it. While I don't have a good computer for modern gaming, it run well enough for me to be enjoyable. I still haven't completed it though.

Recently I got Shadow Warrior 2 from the GOG giveaway, and I wanted to rant about it after 5 hours of play.

Free Shadow Warrior 2 on GOG, and how I made it work on Linux

by parasurv

For the 10th anniversary of GOG, we got a nice suprise from the Polish company. People could vote from 3 games (Shadow Warrior 2, Superhot and Firewatch), to be free for a limited time. While I really wanted to have Superhot, because I thought it is an interesting game, and despite my small effort in the fediverse, campaigning till the last hour (this sentence is so hyperbole, and funny, I laugh as I write this).

Well the people have spoken and the free game become Shadow Warrior 2. Here is my experience with the game, and how I make it work, on my not so great machine.
