I don't think "move some things around" is feasible for many people.

Your desktop is a huge ugly bulk of wires likely buried somewhere it isn't seen.
Your best TV is probably in your best decorated room and one of the centerpieces of your family.


No, but the average consumer isn't the target for this technology anyway. Joe Schmoe console user isn't going to get a PC capable of playing games, then fiddling with a linux OS to get it to stream his PC games to his TV.

The tech-savvy PC gamer who this is aimed at is more likely to use it, and for those guys the concept of moving things around isn't going to be as upsetting.

But since this will stream to anything with SteamOS installed, my main concern is alleviated anyway.

and the announcement grants this is an "as-yet-unproven studio" but Microsoft's Phil Spencer says this is "to be expected of us, as we tend to make pretty shit games anyway."

Connected wireless it was a bit laggy.


That... doesn't sound very promising. Laggy as in noticeable?

Common Sense: 66% of people support really shady Kickstarter projects without doing any kind of research whatsoever.

See how that works, evilasahobby?

If the latter, that's great. If the former, then why not just buy a long HDMI cable instead?


Because your workhorse PC and your great TV may not be remotely near each other.

No, but how many people are going to spend 500 bucks rather than move some things around?

You can stream to/from anything that can run a Steam client (doesn't have to be SteamOS).

Ah, okay. Thanks Esoteric.

One of the things I like best about WP8 is that all bloatware is deletable.

Except the biggest piece of bloat/shitware, that being the Bing integration.

So I'm still not 100% sure on this. Can you stream stuff from your PC just to a Steambox, or can you stream it to anything with SteamOS on it?

If the latter, that's great. If the former, then why not just buy a long HDMI cable instead?

I guess the one thing that DayZ and Rust's dominance is showing is that there's a helluva lot of PC gamers that just love to grief the hell out of each other.

At least they've got their own games now, maybe they can stay out of the others.

I agree, don't delay the Super Bowl for snow. These guys are being paid more money for one day, than most people will see in their lives, to play a game. They need to realize they aren't any different from any stage production, and the show must go on. The spectators who have spent thousands of dollars for a once in a lifetime event didn't plan for the extra day, because why should they? Where are they going to house the fans for an extra day? Reschedule all their flights? Call their bosses and say they need an extra day off? Is the NFL planning to organize and PAY for all of that?

Play in the snow you fucking pansies.

It's not the players asking for this. It's the fucking media. They have been bitching about this game being played in bad weather since it was announced to be in NJ three fucking years ago.

I'll call NFL players a lot of things, but the last thing they are is pansies. These guys would play if it was putting down a foot of snow in an hour. But all the media cunts can't possibly sit there with cold hands?!

You couldn't even check the weather twice a day with 250MB, and Verizon fucking knows it. So they'll happily hit people with the $400 per MB overage. Why the fucking FCC doesn't do something about this kind of blatant THEFT just shows how corrupt they really are.

Eh. SOE seems to make basically the same MMO every time, then they make completely insane changes that piss off the few fans that actually liked the game to begin with, so I doubt that somehow they're now capable of fixing all of those mistakes.

"I think there were 12 titles released on both platforms [PS4 and Xbox One], and all but three of them had basically the same performance on both boxes.

Yeah, that's 25% there, jackass. Fucking Microsoft. Why do they even get space to bleat their retarded crap anymore? Your console is underpowered. The end.

#2 I don't think is a big factor yet. We haven't actually seen evidence of it playing anything better.

Well, we sorta did, because Ghosts was upscaled on the bone versus true 1080 on the PS4. Whether that matters to people or not, it's an objective fact.

But it's funny that you say we don't have any evidence, and then at the end of your post, you state: It doesn't matter if they're true or valid - plenty of false and irrational things have either doomed or guaranteed sales.

It is most certainly the rumor/generally accepted internet truth that the PS4 runs things better, ergo, it soon becomes reality. I'm sure there are people who've had their purchasing decision influenced by it.

But in any case, the large large LARGE majority buy a PS4 versus a bone because the PS4 is a hundred bucks cheaper.

Bethesda hires a bunch of no-names for Skyrim (with a few exceptions), get lambasted for having wooden and sucky voice acting.

I felt like Skyrim was a great improvement, voice wise, from previous games. It actually felt like there as more than 2-3 people doing every single voice in the game.



I had no problem with the voice acting in Skyrim whatsoever. Yeah, there was overlap, but eh. And the quirky accents actually made me feel as if I was far removed from the center of the Empire.
