    Yeah that is what I was thinking. Do light computing on a phone like device and then do ray tracing or something super compute heavy in the cloud and bake that in or something.

    The best use case of this tech if we can massive reduce the lag would be for VR.

    I think that it is less likely that valve will get ban happy and more likely that valve may restrict future games as that would be easier for them to prevent possible backlash while getting most of the benefit. The old backlog games are quietly doing their own thing unless someone digs them up and makes a fuss about them but new games are looked over with new eyes every day just being new. Valve curating a bit more going forward would be enough to keep the payment processors and other annoyances happy.

    In a perfect world that is true but we are currently in the darkest timeline and very clear X happens that shows that things will crack down afterwards. Sometimes it seems that the most likely things to happen are the least logical things to happen these days.

    We can look at many online communities or social networks such as youtube with how they took the lazy way of demonetizing and banning stuff to the point of it no longer being a reasonable career choice for people and it only looks like it is getting worse.

    I will admit that I hadn't fully read through that post until now. And while I still think that it would have been fine to leave the game on steam if it was handled differently by all parties it looks like it is too late for that at this point.

    Now the payment processor bullshit is a whole other can of worms that I don't have the energy to get into nor is it on topic for this discussion.

    Large shared places are never a pleasant experience that just lead to stress. Perhaps people will be friendlier to each other if it is more common to have a personal space that is just theirs and perhaps loved ones. I certainly think that it would help the mental health problem that we have here.

    I believe that @Pilgrim may be under the wrong impression that the breadwinner in this situation has to be a man. It could just as easily be a women or another dude whatever in a relationship that does the money making while the other stays home pursuing a passion such as art or just taking care of a kid that needs more attention than one with a full time job can give.

    It is to my understanding that giving more people free time to do what they really want is how we get amazing things in the world. Once a money isn't a fear perhaps Steve can make the next tildes in 2030 after the user base is tired of it and it is no longer what it once was.

    cen·sorship
    /ˈsensərSHip/
    noun
    noun: censorship

    1. The suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.

    Edit: I'm not actually against them censoring and the free market can push them to do so but I simply wish for strict guidelines of what is and isn't allowed.

    "Having said that Hatred showed that the best way to deal with this kind of shit game is to just let it come out and ignore it."

    Well whatever happens I hope that Valve is clear about what they are allowing and not allowing on the platform.

    We can give private company shit for censoring ect even if they are well within their legal right to do so. I wouldn't even personally have a problem if valve decided that they would man up and hire a bunch of people to clean up the platform with proper guidelines but they aren't doing that.

    Valve themselves stated that they would allow anything legal on the platform after the recent change but that is obviously not the case and that is why I'm calling this censorship in case I wasn't clear in my rambling.

    'Fuck child simulator' while gross would be perfectly legal at least in some states in the US as long as it was computer rendered / animated ect. I'm not actually sure what slur the first one is but I don't feel like looking it up and I'm actually fine with things such as that existing somewhere on the internet but if valve wants be perfectly clear and say they don't want X that is perfectly acceptable.

    All I ask companies is to be more clear with their guidelines otherwise we will go through the usual slippery slope of 'First they came for X but I did nothing because I wasn't X'.

    A stance that I personally take and believe is reasonable is that I think valve should just stick to their word about what they allow on the platform instead of randomly picking and choosing. While I would most likely never play this game I don't personally see anything wrong about a game focused around rape existing. Sure it is awful and whatever but so is the world and there are plenty of rape focused stuff on steam anyway from some of the eroge games they allowed on.

    It also is always for the easy to pick on things as well from weeb shit on reddit and other platforms to sex in general in western media like this rape game.

    It is important to note that the other topic that comes often on ones like this is this 'not being censorship because it is a private company'. Valve is obviously well within their right to refuse any game but that is still censorship just legal censorship and we can still give them shit for it.

    Yes this is true. Web players are not powerful enough to playback the stuff that fansubs do and it would be expensive to host ect.

    Some sketchy sites may sometimes use a shitty re-encoded version of the fansub release but other than that it will almost always basically just be horribe subs like rips on those sites.

    If we don't include KTLA cartoon block or w/e it was a kid with pokemon ect because I didn't know that was even Japanese at the time it would be when I was in High School.

    The way that I got into anime was a bit weird as I first played katawa shoujo after my brother suggested that I played it. I then played Muv Luv extra/unlimited/alt and then Steins;gate and finally a bit of Clannad.

    It was not until after all of these VNs that I finally watched my first anime as an anime viewer and I believe that it was Cowboy Bebop with my brother. But yes I played eroges before I ever got into anime. 👀
