Unity Game engine now enacting a outrageous pricing scheme.
first Twitter kills it's free API plan (April 6th 2023) Then Reddit kills third party apps (July 3rd 2023) Then Facebook blocks news from Canadians in responce to bill C-18 (august 2nd 2023)

and now Unity the worlds number 1 game engine. Announced a pricing plan that would force developers on the free tier to owe Unity $0.20 per installation once their game hit thresholds of 200,000 downloads

many game studios on Twitter began fuming immediately right after unity announced the pricing

Game studio Innersloth. Creators of the smash it game Among us said on twitter "Stop it This would harm not only us, but fellow game studios of all budgets and sizes...."

As for me it also effects my games especially Baldi's Basics Plus and Classic remastered. both use the unity engine. This is truly a crisis in the tech scene it has ever been as bad this year where company's start to screw around with us consumers.

this is why I'm starting a new series of posts covering this crisis. its called Crisis in the tech world. i will continue to cover the current crisis in the tech scene

Going to see The Oppenheimer movie in 70mm IMAX tomorrow
It turns out there is a 70mm IMAX theatre in Calgary it's one of only 30 theatres in the world that are showing it the theatre in question is Scotiabank theatre Chinook and best of all its a TRUE IMAX (aka 1.43:1 IMAX) and not the so called "lieMAX" (1.9:1 Digital IMAX)

The last 70mm IMAX film released was Dunkirk in 2017

This will be fun :)

here's a image of a TRUE IMAX vs lieMAX http://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/ZZ68ECE699-550x256.jpg

Gumball Season 7 coming out before the movie?
So it turns out that season 7 of The Amazing World Of Gumball is coming out before the movie they are saying that its to ''further expand the universe of the classic The Amazing World Of Gumball show'' In my opinion sure there might be some cannon issues of season 7 and the movie. But hey its better than nothing i guess :) Link of reddit post containing this news: https://old.reddit.com/r/gumball/comments/14ua6wl/apparently_s7_is_airing_before_the_movie_sometime/

BREAKING: Gumball Cartoon network schedule sabotaged by teen titans go and other shows!
Well the unthinkable just happened remember awhile back that Gumball is airing all the way back at 12:00am at night? well that time slot now reads [Batman: The Animated Series]. This is a huge blow to Gumball's Legacy. I think Warner bros discovery and HBO MAX is to blame. There are still some Gumball on the time slot but they are single episodes spread apart. Hopefully we get the Movie and Season 7 some time soon until then may Gumball be with us all!

Just found out that some DUMB game devs fake windows 10 requirement
I was playing The Long Drive on my steam deck and i check the requirements and it requires the Malware known as Windows 10. so i did an experiment i installed The Long Drive on my windows 7 computer and it actually runs

So my theory is that some DUMB ASS game devs don't want you to use windows 7 even know its better than Windows 10 or hell Windows 11

Modern Day Apple is trash
Nowadays there is shitty two-factor Authentication. A crappy new apple silicon breaking compatibility with thousands of Intel based mac applications. Apple arcade is hogging great games from android users. And don't get me started with AppleTv+

In my opinion Apple from 2006 to 2018 is peek Apple

The streaming service wars is stupid and an nuisance to the paying customer
Back in my day there was only 3 streaming services. Netflix aka the inventor of the streaming service. Hulu the second streaming service that promised TV shows available right after they aired on over the air television. And Amazon instant video (now known as amazon prime video)

Now there are too many streaming providers.

the new streaming providers are
Disney + (the streaming platform for Disney fans)
Apple tv + (a Dumpster fire)
Paramount + (also a dumpster fire)
HBOMAX (The streaming platform from HELL because they killed the Gumball movie among other projects)
Peacock TV (Yet another dumpster fire made by NBC)

what Netflix used to have is now on other providers. the streaming war is a nuisance to the customer and evidence points out that Disney+ is the one that started the war in the first place

In my opinion the world will rejoice when all the streaming platforms except the original 3 shutdown for good
