2021.12.03 07:52 ripvic2k16 Is the Series S worth it as a secondary console
Lifelong PlayStation player coming in peace, and the PS5 is my console of choice and I love it. However, I’ve always wanted to play Forza, and it looks like all future Bethesda games will be Xbox/PC exclusive, and also Game Pass Ultimate is the best value gaming thing out there.
I would actually just get a Series X but im not willing to go though everything I did to get my PS5 again, and I can save some money, so basically, is the lack of performance in the Series S so noticeable that it isn’t worth the $500 (AUD), or is it competent enough for at least the next 3 or so years for upcoming Xbox releases and game pass games, basically just single player games
Any help is much appreciated!

2021.12.03 07:52 Dumuzzi How is it in Eastern Europe and other parts of the world, compared to the US?
So, I thought it would only be fair to provide a balanced outsider's perspective on the whole antiwork movement from someone who is currently in Eastern Europe, though within the EU (Hungary), but has also worked for US corporations, including in Ireland and Singapore and for UK employers in London. I also have experience with the Health and Social Safety net in these countries.
First off, keep in mind, that salaries are almost uniformly lower in other countries, for most positions, compared to the US. The difference can be quite large, even orders of magnitude, once you move into upper management and highly specialised positions. A classic example is when Mercedes-Benz (Daimler) acquired failing Chrysler and upper management found that their new underlings were earning more than 10 times as much compared to their German counterparts. So, there is no question, that for those in well-paid positions, the US remains the best place to earn serious cash.
Salaries aren't actually that bad in the US, even at the low end (unless if you compare it to extreme outliers like Norway or Switzerland, but that's hardly a fair comparison), the real problem is the cost of living, and the predatory nature of the kind of capitalism the US (and lately, the UK, but also Singapore, Australia, etc...) have embraced.
So, just to give you an idea, Hungary is a relatively poor country within the EU, the EU's equivalent to say Alabama, or Mississippi, pretty much. It's easy to earn 3-4 times as much, doing the same job, in neighbouring Austria for instance, and Switzerland pays twice as much again. Due to this, many people commute to or outright move to richer EU countries, causing a brain drain effect, which negatively impacts the health and education sectors in particular, there is a constant shortage of skilled people on all levels.
Still, being part of the EU, we do get a fair amount of investment and we have clearly developed rapidly since our membership, as have all other "Eastern" member states. There are also a large number of protections accorded to workers and some which are unique to Hungary and can't be found anywhere else in the world. Keep in mind, Hungary has a conservative government, which is quite close to many US conservatives (Tucker Carlson, famously, is a fan) and especially to Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel, though he is now out of power.
We have a hybrid system basically, where the government is quite conservative in rhetoric, especially in terms of demonising migration (whilst enthusiastically waving in huge numbers of guest workers from the likes of Ukraine, Mongolia and Serbia), advocating for lower taxes (which have been reduced, but are still quite high by US standards) and putting up a conservative Christian-Democrat front. In reality though, economic and social policies are highly progressive.
For instance, Hungary is quite unique in offering up to 3 years of paid maternity leave. Yes, true, my Mom managed to stay home with us for 9 years altogether, though the amount she received was quite meagre, but by law she was able to go back to her old job each time.
There is also a minimum of 4 weeks paid leave (this is mandated by the EU), which grows by age and number of children, so for instance I receive 6 weeks paid leave plus 9 days in public holidays each other.
There is also Universal Healthcare, but for some procedures you have to go private, or go on a months-long waiting list (same as the NHS in the UK). The amount to cover you is deducted every month from your payslip and is a relatively small amount, around 5 percent of your monthly salary. If you are unemployed, you are also covered, but if you are out of the labour market, you have to pay for your coverage which right now is probably around 50 dollars a month.
Following the collapse of communism, worker's rights were shredded and employers got accustomed to treating their employees like dirt, but since our EU membership in 2004, things have progressively improved. Still, this isn't Denmark and employers verbally abusing their employees, firing them on the spot or not paying their salaries on time and such still happen, though less so than just a decade ago.
Salaries are still very low by Western standards, especially in rural areas and the public sector (the minimum wage is around 500 dollars a month after deductions for tax and healthcare), but having a competitive job in the private sector allows one to have a decent lifestyle. Even skilled factory workers can have pretty decent lives these days, but if you're a teacher or a nurse, god help you...
The cost of living is a fraction of what it is in the US, or the other countries I lived in. For comparison's sake, I am earning about Half of what I used to the UK, Ireland or Singapore (I work as an export-import manager), but living costs are also around half, or even less, if I factor in rents or property prices, transport costs, or the cost of private Health insurance in Ireland and Singapore.
So, overall, I can't afford some of the fancy things an American in the same position as me could easily afford, but the basic costs of essentials compensates for that and there is far less stress in my life.
Now, if I look at Singapore for instance, in comparison, it has an ultra-capitalist system, similar to what exists in the US, with even fewer worker's rights and no social safety net to speak of, not even pensions or medicare. I find it has its advantages and private healthcare isn't predatory like in the US, so costs are fairly affordable, but overall I prefer European-style social democracy. It means people earn less and can afford less than in the US, especially at the top end, but society is more balances and harmonious as a result.

2021.12.03 07:52 clownerycult The boyz's fancon has me in tears
I'll probably update this as I go along with what is happening but today is the start of a 3 day run of tbz having concerts in fron of their fans including ideobis on sunday when its the online one too!!! There was uncertainty if it would go ahead as offline because of covid in korea but here we are on the first day and its already making me cry happy tears.
They're currently performing bright songs after the mixture of maverick, shine shine and the stealer played then kingdom come. Seeing them happily perform in front of deobis after almost 2 years away (their last in person fansign before maverick era was february 2020) and looking so happy is just making me so proud. Proud of how far they've come, proud that they're finally able to stand on stage and see their fans in person. They had cameras on stage broadcasting onto the screen them running around while whiplash and dancing till we drop played and just having fun.
This is also the first time they see us with their lightstick since it was released. And they just look so happy to be performing in front of deobis. Obviously, its clapping only at the moment so no fanchants or screaming (kdeobis are already saying their hands hurt lmaoo) and they're having fun. That's what I wanted from this fancon: to see tbz having fun in front of their fans and have a good time. They also look really good with their outfits and a couple new hair colours (hyunjae discovered hair dye and is the obligatory blue haired member they have at all times).
They also came on stage for whiplash with some of them wearing giant hands or boxing gloves. I don't know how to describe my reaction to that other that 'oh my god'. They've toured around the crowds and they look amazing.
I'll edit this after the fancon with my final thoughts but I am so grateful that the boyz are able to hold their fancon over this weekend and enjoy themselves and see deobis. I'm also glad I'm here to witness them having fun!!!!
