Iíve been playing a lot of minecraft on a server with a ton of people and built a giant volcano that I stuffed a bunch of resource farms into



the hole cut out of the island is a tree farm Iím working on since as it turns out! itís hard to find wood when you live in the middle of the ocean

havenít played the java version in years. does it still run like poo poo?

it scales to your hardware pretty well, I play with shaders and a resource pack that makes textures 3D and respond to light direction for shadowing and stuff and I average 60fps on a 1070ftw with an i7-7700k

MC 1.16.1 caused some LF with redstone contraptions

oh for best performance you can download and install optifine

I just tested and I get 150fps using optifine and no shaders or resource packs

yeah, this is the stuff i don't want to gently caress around with. i'll just stick with my win 10 version and not worry about game janitoring.

well itís just a jar you put into the .minecraft folder then you select it from the launcher instead of the vanilla client

as far as video game janitoring goes itís benign at best and yields really solid performance improvements

being honest tho the only reason java is better than bedrock is because the redstone stuff works better, if you just wanna build cool stuff any version will do and bedrock technically has better performance potential since itís written in C++

Iím extremely hesitant to buy digital games for a system that will be outdated every 5-8 years and will require being pulled out of the closet in order to play old good games on

I used to collect retro games and it was awesome when I was a bachelor and could have all my systems under my tv and have an switch that let me toss 4 systems per tv input, but now those systems are two year old bait and the cables are a combination of strangling hazard and yoinking the tv off the wall hazard so I canít really go back and play super Mario sunshine or whatever without a lot of effort

that being said Iím pretty sure none of my TVs have rca connections and I would imagine scaling with something other than that $400 Japanese scaler will make all my games look like poo poo unless I keep a 200lb 30 year old Panasonic on hand

will the PS5 read PS1 and PS2 discs or will I have to rebuy them from some garbage Sony Store for $1 a pop

i used to have a big weird retro game collection and all it did was take up space so i poasted it on samart and people went nuts for it. i think ultimately i got "ripped off" but i got way more than i thought and there was no way i was gonna part all that out

yeah I sold some boxed duplicates I had and duplicate systems and a couple of other things and I suddenly had $1500 to buy a new computer with

I didnít realise they were so insanely valuable until I went to sell them. I always just picked stuff up at like Salvation Army and garage sales

probably a switch just because the parental controls are really good and the titles are largely guaranteed to be kid friendly

i'd imagine for sony it will be like steam or xbox where you buy the game and you can play it on all ur devices for all games from the last generation and onward cause its all PCs.

nintendo has the dual problems of completely different and incompatible hardware for every console release and then being the worst at online services

with xbox specifically they're gonna be going hard on xbox game pass over the next few years probably ending up with game streaming as the final form of the xbox brand.

yeah Nintendo is awful about it

at least in my experience the only game that you really interact with others much in on the Switch is overwatch or that paint shoot game and Iím pretty sure neither allow you to type words in it and Iíd be surprised if either have voice comms

I gave fortnite a go when it first came out and then what sounded like a 10 year old squeeked at me for either killing them or leaving them to die and I uninstalled shortly after. I canít imagine what itís like now that itís a certified Childrenís Game

I worked on that

we didn't provide a new game option for reasons you'll hate to hear: we basically can't remove anything from player saves that they could possibly have purchased with the hard currency (cc) and our server programmers are super stingy with storage space so we dont store which currency you used to purchase things

the best way i can describe wandering around with the big sub in subnautica and casually decorating it or building a deep sea base is that it was very hygge

that feeling you have when its disgusting outside but youre very cozy and safe and warm in your house, snuggled up reading a book or binge watching a show. youre in your sub, wandering the sea in search of stuff, safe and protected from the inhospitable world outside your viewports

the last time i had fun with multiplayer was in college with dedicated campus-only counterstrike and q3 servers. coordinating strategy with your roommate in cs when one of you is dead and the other is the last opposing force in the game was fun as hell, although not quite as much as fun winding down a day and then getting together with the other people playing at a local bar or weekend party (hey, so and so is having a house party, everyone come on over).

idgaf about playing with randos on the internet, it just isn't the same

yeah playing with pubbies and some goons sucks rear end
