    My SO and I truly enjoy Spirit Island and have only ever played it two-player. It's like a reverse-Catan where you play as island spirits to defend an island from being settled by invaders by building out influence and working together to use your chosen spirit's powers in conjunction to drive out the settlers.

    Looks great! I think I detect a small shift to the left in the page layout when I click "Show more..." in one of the sections, though.

    I’m a little afraid to use 👌 at work now that it’s been talked about as being a white power symbol.

    I will be hosting by semi-bi-weekly D&D game tomorrow with some friends, and hopefully finishing off our first adventure. Sunday’s schedule is looking pretty clear, and it’s going to rain all day, so I might stay in and try to make some progress on The Witcher 3 or 10 billion other games I’ve accumulated over the years.

    Ultimately we won’t know until it’s in consumers’ hands. I suspect that they may be moving this direction because the slider isn’t easily fixed if it breaks, or perhaps just to remove friction when you give someone else your headset to try. I personally have issues getting my IPD adjustment perfect as is - it gives me slightly weird green lines no matter how I seem to change my headset. Never quite clear enough.

    I heartily agree. Lots of heat on Reddit about it, but it’s extremely hard to judge a thing without actually trying it.

    Some very odd choices made here. I consider the lack of external sensors a benefit, but removing the physical IPD adjustment is a detractor, unless somehow their software IPD adjustment has parity. Though I haven’t tried PSVR, I always heard that the halo-style headband was extremely comfortable and I welcome the change. All in all, I won’t upgrade from my Rift v1, but I can appreciate the move forward.

    I’d say no, because I lack faith that those taxes would be allocated with integrity.

    Hive is a blast. It’s kinda like new chess, with deep strategy and multiple expansions.
