It will never end. Hope you're looking forward to your 20 ''boosters'' a year


More likely, it will be like the flu with a recommended vaccine more or less every year.
Yes,every 3 Months.....declared in our new Austrian Mandatory Vaccination Law.....
Every 3 months...wow....

I genuinely don't know if I want more and more boosters down the road. Every single time I got the vaccine it made me violently unwell. The arm pain and fatigue was nothing compared to the horrendous side effect period cramps and general sickness I felt. I mean, I'm glad I'm vaccinated, but I don't want to keep going through that over and over...

Remember when it was 15 days to slow the spread? Pepperidge farm remembers
Yes, because the goal was to, as you said, "slow the spread" and flatten the curve. You apparently don't remember as well as you think.

I'm also not arguing for four vaccines a year. I'm correcting their math.

Their math? One person frivolously said 20 times a year, then you said once a year, then someone completely different mentioned the actual requirement in the mandate for every 3 months. There was no they or correction to make. Take a break from being the teacher and relax sometimes.

The post was in response to both of us, with the implication being that a vaccine every three months erroneously equals 20 vaccinations in a year.

    Kinda makes me sad everyone is believing in emulation gives less of a reason for consoles to exist
    Gift
  • T @ trimesh:
    I appreciate the convenience of emulation - but at the same time there is a feeling you get from using original hardware that's hard to match.

    I feel like consoles will always be here just less of a demand

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    Next gen will probably be all portable

  • T @ trimesh:
    Some things (like Super Famicom games) just feel right when you play them using the original hardware and a CRT

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    Nintendy is a huge example of not everyone caring about powerful specs most that do will be hardcore PC players anyway

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon
    Gift
  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    Yeah but we already have AAA titles looking fine on tablet form 1080p displays

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display

    Yeah probably - people on forums seem to care a lot, but they are heavily self-selected
