Yes but Square Enix knows how to write stories. While I do like the games themselves and it has a good overall story the movie franchise they licensed sucked ass which makes it hard to believe they can bring out something credible to the general mass

Trance Fridays #392 - Anyma & Meg Myers - Running

I'd been trying to find the original of this for so long because it's used in a lot of tiktok and it's kind of catchy.

Trance Fridays #391 - Lane 8 feat. Rae Morris - No Fun

Posted at 23:27 - 10th, September 2022 by Alex Alex
Sorry for the hiatus, life got the best of me.

I've been finding it harder to find new music for Trance Fridays because I don't listen to podcasts like a state of trance, trance around the world and whatnot so much anymore. Most of the time I've been doing the talk radio thing or listening to pandora which tries to get your attention by playing songs you like - usually stuff you've heard before.

This one kind of came out of nowhere to be honest.

Leave it to good ol lane 8...

ArriveCan app and controversy surrounding it

Posted at 12:58 - 3rd, August 2022 by Alex Alex
I'm going to preface this with I know I sound like a conspiracy nut but have you heard about the Great Reset?

It's this theory that the powers that be are using COVID to their benefit for tighter control over people at the global level. COVID in this case just happens to be a catalyst to start all of this really but there are certain things happening all over the world that should make take a step back and say "wait, what?".

There was recently a WEF - World Economic Forum - where they don't even hide the idea anymore. The powers that be are openly talking about it. It's the most particular thing to hear people take about this out in the open, truly.

Anyway, most recently there has been a lot of hubbub about the use of fertilizers in agriculture in places like Canada and I believe the Netherlands.

The governments in both countries have put forward new legislation regarding the amount of fertilizer that can be used on farms. This has led to massive protests in the Netherlands - aggressive protests but I don't believe anything violent yet - and lots of complaining in Canada by the farmers.

Side note, there's a food shortage coming, be prepared.

The reason I bring this up is because this was one of the things that they talked about in WEF, climate control, emissions reduction through using less fertilizers and lastly - and I kid you not - moving away from meat production to insect production as a source of protein.

At the same time, they were talking about a single method to track all the personal information of all citizens at all times through some kind of medical app and how a number of countries have signed on to this. Canada being one of them.

Finally, people have started talking about this in public. If you have time, watch this through, it's pertinent to most people living in the civilized world, even if you are note Canadian or going to Canada.

And now I'll get off my conspiracy soap box.

Several games removed from Apple Arcade

Posted at 8:59 - 3rd, August 2022 by Alex Alex
Apple has a platform known as Apple Arcade which is very similar to the Microsoft Game Pass, Sony's Playstation Plus and Nintendo's Switch Online platforms. Hell, even Google has Play Pass.

Games as a service are here. You don't technically own anything anymore. You simply rent it for a period of time and play it while it's made available to you.

Thanks Steam for bringing us down this road. Originally, I was against the idea of what Steam was, but never thought it would get this bad.

So Apple had a bunch of games that were on this rental service and now they're removing these 15:

  • Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree

  • BattleSky Brigade: Harpooner

  • Cardpocalypse

  • Dead End Job

  • Don't Bug Me!

  • Dread Nautical

  • EarthNight

  • Explottens

  • Lifeslide

  • Over the Alps

  • Projection: First Light

  • Spelldrifter

  • Spidersaurs

  • Towaga: Among Shadows

  • Various Daylife

The agreement between the devs and Apple was that for a period of time those games would be on the arcade and they would be available to be played for anyone subscribing to the service. The terms are now up and people who play those games will eventually - 2 weeks? be met with a message saying no longer available. The dev can decide if they want to put the game for sale for full purchase on the store after that. People who had the game through the service will need to buy the game to continue playing it.

This raises all sorts of questions regarding ownership and preservation and the like. It still boggles my mind that people are willing to do it this way.
