Justice

I was born in a quiet and beautiful town in the Far East together with my cousins. As far as I can remember, we enjoyed watching the sunrise and sunset, bathing and fishing in the river along with other children. My childhood years bring back good memories: Playing hide and seek, flying kites, throwing yo-yo, jumping on Chinese garter and so much more. Life was full of fun and so simple back then. There were times I ate meals in our neighbours' house, treated like family. Sometimes we exchanged food. This you will never experience in an highly urbanised city, as there is nothing like this in the Western world. It's a small town where you almost know every other person. Everybody is like your family. That is how I remember the place that I left 24 years ago. This year my husband and I were planning to visit my beloved town. But I have second thoughts. It's a bit scary to visit a place where people are killing other people like animals.

Recently, I have heard that a lot of assassinations happened in the place, and two victims who died are known to me. What's wrong? What is this killing all about? This is inhumane. What kind of society will we have if we are killing people? This is unlawful; parents are raising their children with all the love and care, teaching them to respect others as they want to be respected. No parents want to harm their children nor others' (vice versa). STOP THE EXECUTION!!! We live in a society and we must act like social beings; barbarians belong in the wilderness, where there were no places for people without conscience. If you took life away with your own hands, you would pay for it in the end. "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". Justice for all the innocent victims, justice must be served for the family. We want our town back -- the one it used to be.

Barbarian get a bad rap

Barbarians were not the dehumanized beasts they have been made out to be. Brutality is more the domain of the civilized. In fact, it was the barbarians that put a stop to ancient Rome's games, in which thousands were brutally slaughtered every month. Blame civilization, not the barbarians, for humanity's swing toward inhumanity.

Just to set the record straight.

Barbarians

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbarian

You might think I missed the word "Barbarian", so please refer to the above.

"In idiomatic or figurative usage, a "barbarian" may also be an individual reference to a brutal, cruel, warlike, insensitive person.[1]. This does not blame the Barbarian, it is the evolution of the word "Barbarian" which I chose to refer to uncivilised people who live in society but refuse to act as a social being.

Games: xoreos, Vulkan, Poly Bridge 2, Unrailed! and More

  • xoreos, the FLOSS game engine for titles like Knights of the Old Republic has a new update

    xoreos is an in-development effort to create a free and open source game engine reimplementation of the BioWare Aurora Engine that powers games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It's finally had a new release with xoreos 0.0.6 and it still seems like quite early days for games being playable. This release appears to have laid the groundwork for more improvements to come. The biggest change is that the original Knights of the Old Republic now has a partially working tutorial, it doesn't sound like a lot but for a reimplementation project it's quite a big step forwards to show what it can be capable of.

  • Vulkan API gains new extension to aid translation layers

    Today, the Vulkan API 1.2.149 spec update went out and it includes another extension that's aimed at helping translation layers like DXVK. While we don't usually comment on such minor specification updates to Vulkan, we do pick it up in cases like this where it may directly benefit compatibility layers for Linux gaming. VK_EXT_4444_formats is the new extension, which was worked on by Joshua Ashton (original creator of D9VK, now part of DXVK) for Valve and Jason Ekstrand for Intel. This is actually Ashton's second extension, following on from the release of Vulkan 1.2.140 back in May.

  • The fab physics bridge-builder Poly Bridge 2 gets a huge free content update

    Already finished Poly Bridge 2? Looks like it's time to jump back in as Dry Cactus have just released a huge free content upgrade with lots of new goodies to play with. What is Poly Bridge 2? The sequel to the hit bridge-building physics puzzler from 2016, it brings with it new levels, new mechanics, a custom physics engine, workshop campaigns, and much more. It was already fun and it's constantly improved since release with all sorts of tweaks and little extras but this update released on August 2 is on a whole different level. World 5 has been added, bringing with it the Serenity Valley location with 16 brand new levels and challenges, along with new achievements to hunt down. If that's not enough for you the Sandbox Mode was also expanded with: a new theme and vehicle type, support for duplicating multiple selected items, accurate selection for boats and planes, undo support for multiple changes and a custom shape option.

  • Unrailed! is gearing up for launch with a discount before the price goes up

    Unrailed! is an absolutely fantastic co-op game from Indoor Astronaut and Daedalic Entertainment that has you frantically build a train track to keep your train going as far as possible. It entered Early Access back in September 2019, with Linux support arriving in February 2020 and now they're looking to the near-future with a full release approaching. They've not said exactly when but they have confirmed the price will be rising, so they've put it on a reasonably big discount (42%) until August 17.

  • Community Game Night - Rexuiz - LIVE

    This is another Community Game Night stream where you guys can join me in a game for some fun and laughs. You can also join me in my Discord channel's voice chat. Tonight, I'm trying out a new (for me) first person shooter called Rexuiz. It is a fork of the old Nexuiz game, which was great (Xonotic is also forked from Nexuiz). Rexuiz is available on Linux, Mac and Windows.
