game that advertised itself on basis of "but you're a cat" has nothing else really going for it?



Funny enough my friend from GameStop told me that they are only going to have enough copies for pre-orders and Bandai did a review embargo until the day of release.... I am guessing that there may be some disappointment for this game?
hard to tell when so much of it can be explained as that this is a real bloody niche release frankly

Sad to say that Digimon Survive crashes on Steam Deck too but once you pass that cinematic, it runs flawlessly, so hopefully BN will push an update.
There's a 2nd cinematic a bit after which also has the same problem, but after that it has been smooth sailing other a few minor issues:
Most of the button glyphs are broken and LT and RT aren't working (which are funnily enough the ones without broken glyphd). Can be fixed by mapping them to the keyboard equivalents via Steam Input and I can live with seeing some white boxes instead of buttons. I'm thinking they tried implementing Steam Input natively and fucked up, so the glyphs are broken (and LT and RT don't work because they didn't implement them with Steam Input, which is why they have working glyphs).
Sounds easy enough to patch, so hopefully we don't have to wait too long.

As for the game itself. I'm liking it a hell of a lot. Potentially more than Cyber Sleuth. I like the evolution system being more straight forward.
Game looks and sounds really pretty, the story and characters are interesting so far and battles are fine.

Razer doesn't make good products, but the issue is that the other companies aren't exactly better.
I don't trust Logitech or Corsair or whatever else any better than Razer for any device...
I have had these speakers from creative for at least 7 years and they sound very well compared to the small footprint they have: GigaWorks T40 Series II

"Workaround" for the video freeze stuff on the Deck for Digimon

Looks like there is another way around the freezing at the first cutscene, this will fix it for both SteamDeck and Windows it seems
C:\Digimon Survive\DigimonSurvive_Data\Plugins\x86_64 remove file "AVPROVideo" then open the game and game will work again
It basically prevents the videos from playing at all, so no freeze, lol.
(The game only has those 2 very short movies at the beginning that I think were also shown in the trailers anyway, so it's not too bad).

fuck fuck fuck fuck, I got moved up to (July - September ) time frame for steam deck and I’m 200€ short! I had planned out my saving plan but now don’t know what the fuck to do.

edit, no wait almost 300 short. 😭😭😭😭😭

how can such good news that they improved production be worst possible news for me.

Edit again. Canceled the order and made a new one. Hopefully I do get it for Christmas!

I saw people reporting that they had to uninstall their codec packs to get it to pass the cinematic.
Some have reported that there's an option in the k-lite codec pack that fixes the issue.

ok i found exactly what is needed to fix the freeze\crash on cutscene IF you have k-lite installed. you DO NOT have to uninstall it. simply open the tweak tool for klite(C:\Program Files (x86)\K-Lite Codec Pack\Tools\CodecTweakTool.exe) and change 1 setting
Under Codec and Filter Management, goto "Preferred Splitters", then change the 64bit .MP4 to "Use Merit". apply and close. play.

From reading up on the topic, it looks like it is Valve's fault because they didn't register in the country. Blizzard registered and Battle.net still works.
Could be a deliberate choice by Valve to wait on this.
Looking at this article, Indonesia requires formal registration of tech and game companies, it seems like registration might also legally leave them open to some rather vague defined "access to user data", as well as open them up to lawsuit for distributing content that is seen to "disrupt public order".

I imagine they will ultimately register, but they might want to properly investigate what exactly these new laws mean for Steam and what regulatory burdens and risks it puts on them. Worst case, they might decide to leave the market and just let people use VPNs.

Looks like Steam and other gaming services were just blocked in Indonesia due to new government regulations.
Usability wise, so far looks like it's only a simple dns blocking. Getting around it it's pretty easy and I just bought something to test and I can still pay using "DANA" which is a local payment that steam added recently.

It's terrible news still. Don't like where the censorship is heading in my country is all I'm gonna say.

Late to the hardware discussion but I got nothing but good to say about Logitech personally.

G502 is a legendary mouse, sturdy, long lasting and you can make it heavy or light with the included weights. Up to 25k dpi, 11 buttons, and it doesn't break the bank at just $40.

My Logitech G Pro mechanical keyboard is comfy and clicky. 3 years in, no stuck keys, no ghosting, and the keyboard lighting is still strong for easy visibility.

Speakers? Can't beat the Logitech Z623 in their price range. THX certified, loud as fuck, with a punchy subwoofer, and durable construction.

Oh, and Logitech's software is actually useful and not annoying. 😅

Did Dotomchi games shutdown? :cry:
I noticed they pulled their games from everywhere including Steam which they just started porting their games over like late last year
I tried emailing the contact email they have set on Steam but it just bounces back.. RIP
Was looking forward to replaying their fortune games which i played on mobile many years ago

I think I should drop Bikini Bottoms. I get less and less pleasure playing it as time goes.
I don’t know how collectathlons went from a joy to a chore, but here we are. And as silly as that may sounds at first, I truly think a little more comedic plot could have helped. The writing here is minimum and just serves as the barest excuse to traverse the world, period.
Just think, a real action adventure game with emphasis on comedic writing, setpieces etc. A playable cartoon. Boom.

But no, obviously, let’s make a collect 3000 shiny orbs thing with passable mood, what do I know.

The best I will give it is that it tempts me to watch the source material which I’m just familiar with.


edit
Maybe they went from joy to chore because I’m at least partially right. Their is so much concurrence with games that feels like home away from home, where you can sort of live even for the slightest moment, with better writing, better moment to moment gameplay… why should I collect your fucking orbs again ?

I love logitech mice and never had a bad one. I used to have Logitech surround speakers which were also great and only got replaced because I needed something with more inputs.

I got the G600 mouse which is the MMO one. Maybe a few too many side buttons for my fat fingers but I use some of them. The third mouse button next to left/right click is the button I cannot live without. I bought spare G600s because I was scared they were going to discontinue it.

Does anyone know if there are other mice that have like three buttons in a row like left click button, right click button, even further right click button?

I'm pretty sure every Logitech mice I bought (plus any I received under warranty) developed double clicking issues but stuck with them due to how quick and lenient their warranty process is. That had to be nearly 10 mice over a ~20 year period. The latest were two G305 mice, one was likely double clicking out of the box but I didn't fully notice and its replacement did the same about a year later. I'm giving optical switches a try this time around.

If you all need a new mouse. get a vertical mouse. like seriously.
rsi in the wrist sucks, prevent that from ever happening to you.
I use the MX Vertical, seems like its built like a brick and lasts 3 months per charge.
I switch pretty often between a trackball (MX Ergo) and a vertical mouse. The MX vertical is awesome!

Edit Speakers: Just get some bookshelf speakers, I have some Edifiers connected to a dac, they sound awesome. Skip anything "gaming".
