Humble's doing a huge coronavirus bundle for $30. I expect most of us already have most of the games, but everything goes to charity and it's good for gifts.

I may be wrong, but I think jos forgot to use Sarcasm Sans font when typing his comment. (And, just to be clear, there is no such font but there should be so that people can immediately tell when one is being sarcastic - like jos.)

Sure there is, itís called Dingbats. (/s)

Aspyr ported 'Jedi Outcast' and 'Jedi Academy' to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, but won't update them to 64-bit for macOS?
Their recently found blatant disregard for their original platform is all kinds of sad.

Sucks, but obviously they'll make more money doing this, so I can't say I blame them.

Tangentially related, but I recently learned that the Civ V 64-bit patch permanently broke cross-platform multiplayer. As in, it's not possible to release a Windows patch to get them in parity again. Any idea why a 64-bit patch would do this? I think the Windows version is still 32-bit but I don't understand how that would affect multiplayer.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (Windows-only): I listen to this soundtrack regularly and it never fails to make me emotional. Especially impressive since I haven't played the game! Dear Esther is also by Jessica Curry and is also very good.

Myth 2: Soulblighter is the other soundtrack I was going to mention, but someone beat me to it.

Raptureís music is great. I recommend the game too. The atmosphere is astonishing, even if the narrative didnít exactly blow me away.

It is the argument that makes the most reason, but I don't know what they want to leverage about, as I am quite sure that there's a legal problem in what they are doing, unless Nvidia has to do specific software changes to each software in order for things to work.

It doesnít. In the early days of the beta you could get any Steam game to work with a workaround. You could even see the Windows desktop. The comic is quite correct: youíre just renting access to a remote PC.
