Tried the RE:4 demo on my PC running Pop OS and the performance is trash. Even thought I deployed the newly released Proton Hotfix, the performance is between 30-60 FPS with huge frame-time spikes occasionally. The game froze several times, and I had to reboot my PC. AMD's FidelityFX didn't make really a difference, image quality started to reach potato levels. There were also several graphical glitches like this:


My PC is roughly according to the recommended specs for the game, so this is infuriating.

This NY Times opinion piece about cancel culture has become my "tome" regarding the subject. That thing about Dixie Chicks embodies the thesis number 8: "The right and the left both cancel; it’s just that today’s right is too weak to do it effectively."

Today the people with the most to fear from a right-wing cancel culture usually work inside Trump-era professional conservatism. (And even for them there’s often a new life awaiting as a professional NeverTrumper.) Attempted cancellations on the right are mostly battles for control over diminishing terrain, with occasional forays against red-state academics and anti-Trump celebrities. Meanwhile, the left’s cancel warriors imagine themselves conquering the entire non-Fox News map.

Also American right-wingers complain about the left virtue signaling but they have their own symbols for that. Think about MAGA merchandise and other Trump symbols, "Blue Lives Matter", "Support our troops" stickers, supporting "traditional values" and so on.

The Pikmin series use it, obviously for Pikmins.

Lots of effort has been certainly made for remastering the game for Switch. The models have been given higher polycount, higher resolution textures, more advanced lighting, all made with the HD era in mind. A lazy studio would have just tweaked things here and there, changed the rendering resolution to HD and called it a day.

I just looked up that the remaster supports diverse control options such as conventional twin-stick way, gyro aiming and the original. Another reason to applaud this remaster.

Today??? Huh.
