Comfy Vidya thread #3: RIP Xbox?

Xbox rumored to go the way of Sega after one final Xbox Series X refresh end of this year, though they may continue the Xbox brand and go a "Steam Machine" route where they have third-party hardware vendors configure small form factor PCs (with no Blu-Ray drive) and install some kind of Xbox OS centered around Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft may bring Bethesda’s Starfield and Indiana Jones games to the PS5 after all


>The change in strategy could call into question Xbox's place in the games industry. While console wars are by and large nonsense, some players may feel aggrieved that Starfield and the Indy game are seemingly bound for PS5, especially if they decided to make Xbox Series X/S their sole console. Certain gamers who might only be able to afford one of the flagship consoles and tend to trade in games may feel that they're missing out if they plumped for an Xbox but Microsoft's titles are hitting PS5 alongside the likes of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and God of War Ragnarok.

>The company will reveal 'more details with you about our vision for the future of Xbox' next week.


Would Xbox Series X's Windows 98-inspired startup sound be 'lowed in a Windows Corporatist Technocracy?


man spends $50,000 on a single gmod server


Goodbye xbone.


Initially Xbox was far and away the most powerful home console-and the most customizable which appealed to nerds-but once they lost that edge (and became more controlling-forcing mandatory internet connections and updates etc.) they really didn't have much going for them. The Series X is now considerably more powerful than the PS5, but the wide berth in performance between it and the Series S has completely tarnished the Xbox brand. What the fuck were those pajeets thinking in trying to get away with releasing what is essentially a previous generation piece of hardware (for nearly the same price) alongside the powerful X and calling it something so phonetically similar?


I genuinely have no idea how the retarded Xbox lineage continued


>Xbox 360
>Xbox One

Whoever came up with these names should be blood eagled


It was over for them after 360.


I don't see starfield being any more successful on the ps5 than on other platforms it failed on.

Then again, never underestimate how dumb console peasants are.


xbox 360
xbox one
xbox one S, X (xbox ones with slightly better specs, one with disc slot one without)
xbox series S and X (one digital only one disc)

I don't think Series S was a bad idea from a commercial standpoint. Virtually all these games have to be released to Windows as well so developers have to program in different graphics settings anyway. The biggest sin of Series S was having less RAM (10GB) than the Xbox One X at 12GB. RAM (or more accurately VRAM but modern consoles do not make a distinction between the two) is required for outputting higher resolutions at acceptable speeds.


It's the same fucking picture. There is no appreciable difference.


You know what's funny, if you look closely, you can make out similar details in the 720p still as the 1440p still, it's the "900p" still that's lacking. Like you can see more details in the top "window" in all the images except the 900p one. However, this is a flawed image because the waves and clouds expose the fact that they're not the same frame of animation or whatever you'd call it, which means there could be circumstances apart from the hardware itself causing these discrepancies.


Chard Warden wins again.


You might not notice it on a 15" laptop screen but it would be noticeable on a 27" or larger 1440p-capable screen.




I don't know how consoles still exist. I would assume consoles are on their way out, but then how the hell did PS5 sell 50 million units? It still has almost the same exact game library as PS4 even. Nintendo and Microsoft clearly intend to jump ship though, the Switch is primarily a handheld and Microsoft is focusing on acquiring IPs for gamepass.


cry more


A lot of zoomers don't own pcs, and use consoles as a computer.


that sounds horrible lol


Yeah it does but, I've met a few that do it. They plug a keyboard in and use the web browser and stuff on their xbox or playstation.

Computers are pretty intimidating for zoomers. They don't really have much in the way of tech skills and mostly just see them as things you use at school or work.


why are you talking to zoomers


So he can have sex with them, retard!


24yo pussy is worth enduring a bit of cringe, no?


Why wouldn't I heh



File: 1707389909325.webp (483.34 KB, 1730x978, Screenshot_4.webp)

I'm like lvl 43 or something. Seems like I'm running out of things to do and its just a grind to lvl 50 and to max out Pal stats from here on. So I'm kinda bored. I mostly stopped playing, might actually move on to ENSHROUDED which looks very cool


I've been thinking about getting Enshrouded. I want to at least kill the last couple bosses on Palworld before then.


what is this slop? looks shit


I guess the "media center" kikes won.


Why don't old Nvidia drivers uninstall themselves ffs heh


The world of pals. Fun for a bit but I'm kinda over it

two cruel manchildren


I hope Xbox continues to exist but I haven't used em as much as Sony. none of their exclusives look appealing like some of sonys were at one time but Xbox original had some good stuff. I only have a ps3 and 360 now and have still been exploring old titles on those. New consoles are just too expensive to justify it and always have infuriating regressions from the capabilites of the old ones.

Nowadays AFAIK u can't even play cds on ps4 while on the old ones like 360 I could even rip em to the system and listen while using a game. Another example ps3 can play many games from both ps1 and ps2 Era, but ps4 can't do any of the three previous systems. Fans will say these things don't matter and that no one uses old formats like cds but I get a kick out of them. If only they had tape decks built in too, I hate the idea of leaving behind old formats as that means lots of good stuff becomes completely lost to time.

Aside from not approaching women because I'm lazy and live too far from the city, and reading and writing etc etc, ~~ with gaming I've been dividing my time between:
- Palworld
- Dota (12v12 exclusively because its fun and fast-paced)
- Against the Storm

Against the Storm is really good as a roguelite RTS. In fact it's basically the perfect roguelite RTS. It does away with the issue you get in so many old school RTS (SC, WC3, AOE series) where your settlement/base/map thing gets too big and unwieldy such that you get confused or pissed off or lose and/or alt-f4. There are benefits (and sometimes drawbacks) to all the upgrade rolls you can get (one of the big chance factors) so you can basically do something with every resource and its quite fun to figure out how you can go all-in on one particular thing and the game encourages that. It's really good, I actually played this like 6 months ago then stopped and started playing recently and could pick it up again very quickly. Torrented it both times, would prolly buy it if it gets a 50% sale

You can't really get a feel for the game by watching a trailer, you have to play it


delete System32. instead enable iCloud tabs .




>You can't really get a feel for the game by watching a trailer, you have to play it
Watching gameplay is usually enough to know whether or not you will like a game in the first place though.


Looks cool heh.


>Torrented it both times, would prolly buy it if it gets a 50% sale
If you believe "voting with your dollar" makes a difference they have it on GOG too which is a DRM-free alternative to Steam.


>ios game center



They added Arms Race back to Counter-Strike. It's a nice and non-committal game mode for those of us who don't want to spend the rest of our lives playing FPS games anymore I guess


File: 1707874466653.webm (2.74 MB, 1280x720, ☠️ Yar har har ‍☠️.webm)


whats that?


xbox has been dead for years lol


XBOX used to be so cool, new and cutting edge. R.I.P


Back in the day it was a custom game mode called "Gun Game" where players would race to get two kills with every gun from the roster until the end where you have to try and knife somebody to win, Similarly in Arms Race you start with what are considered the strongest guns and work your way down to the knife. It's a nice short format for the game, no strategy or thinking too hard about anything, just shooting.


ah i see, you playing cs2? im still on source as i didnt like the feel of csgo


i miss the times of being on cod4/mw2 round the time they released, the hype was something else as it was my first foray into online matches


fucking hell this site is dead


Hey man, I've just had a rough day, you know?


It ain't called the ded neo natzi bort for nothin!

is there anything more comfy than AVGN vids?


I've been trying to make a first-person dungeon-crawler, elderscrolls rip off game in godot over the last 3 days. So far I've got a lot of basic stuff handled that you could have right out of the box if you just use a template instead lol!, but at least I learned a lot about the engine.


make sure to use lossy webp for textures and ogg vorbis 96kbps for audio


Watched some of his more recent ones. Apart from the dreadful in-video product placement (which just comes with the territory these days, unfortunately), I was still pretty impressed, seems like he's still got it, somehow.


He finally fired screenwave from what I've heard.


I don't even know if those formats are supported.


ideally you'd want it to load your webp textures from disk then convert it in-memory to GPU-friendly "S3TC" (we call it DXT1 and DXT5 in directx land) at runtime. it doesn't look like godot supports that out of the box, if i understand that doc correctly it looks like your only option is to import textures into the godot editor in whatever format and have it re-save the textures as "VRAM Compressed" (i.e. S3TC format) in your exported build which uses significantly more disk space than webp, thus making importing webp pointless (as opposed to png which is lossless) since you'd be compressing lossily twice. my approach would have best of both worlds, i.e. saving both disk space and memory/vram usage. this is why i don't like pre-built engines. but w/e, directx or opengl would be too advanced/time-consuming for you, forget what i said and stick with godot.


File: 1708321674563.webp (328.62 KB, 1905x1075, Screenshot_2.webp)

I've been nolifing Enshrouded. It's pretty good. I always end up making these (maybe shitty) bare bones bases in these games when I start out. Maybe I would actually appreciate having my hand held as to where to place things. I need to spend some time arranging all my stuff so that it looks decent.

I was attracted to the terrain-destruction elements of this game and it has them, but I'm like 22 hours in or something idk and I thought I'd have a fireball spell by now that could break wooden walls or something and I don't, but it's okay. It's somewhat slow but you can dig into terrain and walls, its interesting. I'm hoping there is a stronger pickaxe to be found or crafted.


File: 1708322691016.webp (397.86 KB, 1916x1074, Screenshot_3.webp)

These are all crafting station things or add-ons. They basically all belong to one of the 5 (?) NPC-crafter people. Need to put them in their own place or something. Fun game really. At first I thought the crafting and gathering was easier than in Valheim, which is overall true - building and gathering the stuff for it is much less time-consuming - but there are quite a lot of different thingies to gather.

The game seems to gives you all the quests but I think it encourages you to pursue whatever you like first, so you can specialize in using bows or doing sneak/backstabbing attacks or w/e but you'll get all the crafting stations as you do the quests so you can respec fairly easily.


Fraps isn't working for me in Enshrouded, whats a good alternative?


File: 1708327986597.webp (202.71 KB, 1909x1075, Screenshot_4.webp)

Ancient Spire Nomad Highlands, I want to set up a base on dat dere peak on the right.


Got there but game wouldn't let me. Anyway the game is fun, delivers.


The problem with all these rust clones is that the playerbase never seems to last long.


> directx or opengl would be too advanced/time-consuming for you, forget what i said and stick with godot.
Rude, but true.



oh look another RUST clone! neat!



I never played rust, I think it just seemed like it had too many collectibles.

I keep getting this every time I boot up my Deck and I have no idea why, once I select the top one it boots fine, and I am guessing it's cos an update didn't update properly, how do I get rid of it, it's really annoying


Because no one wants to deal with Steam and its fifty million launcher clones hence why the Deck is doing so well, because it's very console like in ergonomics and interface and your hardware becoming obsolete in a couple years while you pay double the price. Most people don't care about graphics to the degree that spergs think they do, they just want to play a good game that you pick up, play and lose yourself in to deal with how shitty inflation is.

This is also why AAA slop is so expensive; no one wants to fucking buy it cos it's 100 bucks apiece WITHOUT microtrans and day 1 DLC, so to greedily try meet their profit margins, they keep the price high whilst not realising that (between the rage marketing, industry plant streamers and the aforementioned extra costs) only complete gooning dopamine fried purple named breadtube discord losers will buy it.


>installs a bunch of third party malware on his device to facilitate software piracy, a crime

>Demonic malware
>Only pirated Hogwarts Legacy 6 months ago and have bought everything else


need to see the system logs, which is viewed by journalctl in arch-based linux distros like steamos.
this terminal command will output the logs from the last three boots to a text file in your home directory:

journalctl -b -3 > /home/deck/last-three-boots-log.txt

paste the contents into pastebin.com, set its expiration to 1 month, and exposure to unlisted

no one's going to waste their time writing malware for 1% of the pc marketshare. it's just linux reaffirming itself being a tower of babel patchwork of insecure partial solutions by different groups with disparate goals.


>and your hardware becoming obsolete in a couple years while you pay double the price.

I still use a gtx1050ti, an 8 year old card that I bought for around 250 dollars. I have no issue running modern games.


you dipshit, nice posting of your steam client source LMAOOOO


enjoy having your shit hacked remotely


Oh no, my one thousand hour save game of Katawa Shoujo


Still using an i5 around the same age also. So if a computer this old that didn't even cost me 600 dollars lasted me this long. I think it's fair to say the price of computer hardware for gayming is highly exaggerated. As far as consoles being "more convenient" is concerned. I don't think they inherently are. I find them frustrating to use. They're not just trying to be a gaming device after all they're trying to be "media centers" and a real computer without a locked-down OS does that much better.


do this command instead, didn't notice in your photo it showed a date when the failures started, and paste again in pastebin, 3 boots doesn't go far back enough, need to narrow down what those three failures are

journalctl --since "2024-02-10" > /home/deck/since-feb-10-log.txt


as for why you're getting that boot menu, my theory is that your steam deck failed to boot three times due to a certain critical error, and then it switched on this boot menu permanently as a fail-safe so you don't have a steam deck stuck in an endless boot loop that it can't get out of. but this is just a guess, need to see the logs


they're saying this shouldn't happen every time you boot. is your "Quick Access Menu (QAM) button" broken?


The logs were too big so I had to use Zerobin instead

I am pretty sure it's working, all the buttons work like they always have - everything works as it always did except for that boot menu every time


>katawa shoujo
>1000 hours
>playing anime trash
>anime at all

you're a manchild, leave this site


can you switch your system update channel to beta and install the update? you're currently on steamos stable channel v3.5.7. this appears to be not a linux kernel problem but a steamos bug. this image >>74513 does not appear to be a boot menu in the traditional sense (i.e. not "grub2" which is standard in all linux distros), but a recovery menu made for steamos by valve themselves. before we try figuring out the ins and outs of how this obscure customized recovery menu made by valve works, let's just try forcing an OS update to see if it'll get rid of this. and don't forget to run this script afterwards: >>53040

Oh no no no Nvidia sisters

Nvidia has rewritten their Windows XP-era classic graphics driver control panel into a JavaScript (Electron) app (as opposed to a native C/C++ application since zoomer programmers only know JavaScript). It now takes 10x more RAM usage (and therefore also takes longer to launch) for no benefit.

Wat dey mean by dis


fapbait is the only thing they have to market this shit game



Well it's working. I'm on my way to the store rn heh


Why do these r*tards never seem to understand or care about the co sequences of their actions? It seems more likely that there's some nefarious reasoning behind it. Like how-rumor has it-video games nowadays (at least console games) supposedly have 10s of gigabytes worth of uncompressed audio in them to deliberately over inflate their file size so Seagate and Western Digital can sell more of their Soylid State Driverinos to modern Xbawks kids


Might just be because pajeets are tards.


I could write a long, in-depth essay on this, but the main thing you need to remember is that major companies (not that smaller companies are immune to the same mindset, especially if run by non-engineers) don't give a fuck about you or your well-being, and I don't mean that in some vague communist buzzphrase, I can tell you exactly what an executive will tell you if you were to suggest assigning one software engineer for a non-trivial amount of time to audit a software project and analyze low hanging fruit that can be compressed or optimized. They literally view customers as their addicts and they are the dealers. They don't give a fuck if their software takes up all your space on your SSD, their software is the only thing you should be installing and running in their view. Nintendo's one of the few exceptions, they have incentives to put some effort compressing their own games as well as pushing third-parties to compress their games (compare Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption's 11GB on Switch vs. 65GB on PC).

based and squid pilled


Thank you for bearing with me, I really appreciate it.

I tried this, and it seems to be stuck in an update loop. So, I'll switch it to beta, and then install the update, and then it will update, and then it will boot just fine, and then it will say there's an update available from Feb 23, then I'll update it after that, and it will do it, and then it will say there's an update from Feb 13th or whenever, again, and then it'll do the whole thing all over again.

I run this script afterwards, >>53040 and it works, but all it seems to do is get rid of Decky (at least on the sidebar, I still get notifications for it, weirdly enough), which is a pain.

The deck works fine; I'm emulating Pokemon Collosseum with Dolphin on it, but it's annoying that it does that boot screen comes up every time and there's update nag.


>I tried this, and it seems to be stuck in an update loop.

What does it say for OS version and OS build? Do they remain the same whether you install one update or the other? Does that boot screen still show up every single time you reboot, and does it still show "SteamOS-B-3.5.7-20231122.1" and "3 failure(s) since 2024-02-12 22:34" like in your photo?

Can you enable "developer mode" in system settings and ensure "OS Update Channel" and "Steam Client Update Channel" are both set to Beta and then update? Before updating again I'd back up any game save files and emulator memcard/save files in case something goes wrong requiring you to reimage SteamOS. I'm assuming you have a USB-C hub or adapter and a 8GB flash drive for this worst case scenario ( https://help.steampowered.com/en/faqs/view/1B71-EDF2-EB6D-2BB3 ). If the update loop still occurs, set both options to "Preview" instead of "Beta" if it exists and then update. If the update loop still occurs after that, switch off "developer mode" and then switch the singular update option that you're left with to "Preview" and then update.

>but all it seems to do is get rid of Decky

You should then add these following lines to the end of your post-update script that you saved in /home/deck. SteamOS updates wipe everything outside of the /home directory. The purpose of this script is to automate reconfiguring and reinstalling stuff that SteamOS updates undo or remove.

echo "Downloading and installing Decky..."
sudo curl -L https://github.com/SteamDeckHomebrew/decky-installer/releases/latest/download/install_release.sh -o /tmp/install_release.sh && sudo sh /tmp/install_release.sh
