they really didn't have the stomach for a fight for market share? they got in the ground floor of game streaming, but the moment there's headwinds from MS and playstation, they up and quite a potentially huge market? smells to me like when blockbuster laughed off netflix's offer to sell for dirt cheap. game streaming will be to games what video streaming was to video rentals. i bet in 10 years 90% of the gaming market will be streaming.

I think so too - not too distant future it's going to be shit tons of clusters of render farms and all of your hardcore gaming needs will be taken care of by having a special pair of reading glasses. Of course, there will still be groggy old trolls like you and I on our towers with mechanical keyboards.
I don't know if you guys are right, but if you are I hope it doesn't mean you'll be unable to play locally on your PC. I almost never play online, basically only when required. I have the internet for it, 250 Mb fiber, I just see no value in it and playing offline means avoiding all problems any online issues might cause.

they'll never stop selling physical media. you can still buy blurays for the extra features. hell you can still buy LP records. but for quick and dirty action, like a couple games of CoD, nothing beats just hitting start and off you go.

then their tests are fucking bullshit cuz just from the video it's clear he got his bell rung. they can't just make him take tests and then ignore what happened on the field - those are symptoms as well! just from his staggering back to the huddle like a drunk he should've been removed from the game as a precaution. at least one ph.D neurologist who saw it says he displayed five symptoms of a concussion on the field before they removed him.

why do you feel this way? it just seems like streaming is a solution looking for a problem.

there's no physical media anymore you're being spared from buying. game pass services already give you wide access to vast libraries of games. if you're price conscious, buy a console. the places where i feel like streaming would really work, like the developing world where high end hardware is expensive, have dogshit internet. actually, many parts of america have dogshit internet.

maybe there's some new part of the formula that will be introduced that will change things, but currently consumers don't seem interested.

video streaming was also a solution looking for a problem - a problem people didn't know they had, but gladly abandoned once they realized how innovative the solution was. same with game streaming - if you can just play over a connection you won't need hardware other than a tv and a controller. no console or pc necessary. HUGE monetary savings. some minor quibbles still need to be worked out, but the potential market is fucking MASSIVE.

i beta tested stadia, got to play AC odyssey for free and it was a brilliant experience except that i couldn't play in native ultrawide. i also use my xbox game pass from time to time and honestly the convenience blows away having to download or having to buy a physical copy. just pick your game, hit start and go. you honestly don't understand how transformative it is until you use it yourself. NO DOWNLOADING NECESSARY. that may not seem like a big deal, but that takes about the same time it took to drive to the video store to rent a VHS, and that broke the entire rental industry.

The most explicit part of Magnus' very well-prepared statement is:

"I believe that Niemann has cheated more - and more recently - than he has publicly admitted...."
My response to this is, you can believe sunshine comes out of your ass -- it doesn't make it so. Put up or shut up. Your non-specific accusations are not doing anything positive for the game you spent your entire lifetime on.

Hans is a known cheater. he's admitted to cheating in online chess tourneys and he's been permanently banned from... chess.com i believe? and in my experience, someone's who's been caught cheating, has almost certainly been cheating a lot. certainly more than just the few times he's been caught. he's lost all benefit of the doubt in my opinion, but i would certainly like to see better evidence than what MC has put up. a lot of chess commentators have said that at the GM level, you only need to cheat once or twice during a match to flip a huge advantage, so that's why it's really hard to detect. how would he do it? well if you can cheat live in who wants to be a millionaire, you can do it in chess as well.

I'm not sure how I missed this when it came originally dropped. Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, ten stand alone episodes from 2017 on amazon.
I keep meaning to watch that. Maybe once I've caught up on RoP and Andor.

andor's first 3 eps were promising. i just hope they don't lean too hard into the grimy ultra-realism of it. it is star wars afterall, not blade runner.

Finally completed my CORPO run and gotta say, that is by far the best path Now if only they would add all the Edge Runner stuff as DLC, and more... I will never get why they wasted years and never released any proper new content for this game.

squashing bugs man. the time they should've spent making DLC they instead had to spend fixing shit. but they did finally announce a free campaign DLC coming early next year.

also, the anime is REALLY good. i was afraid it was gonna be stupid teenage bullshit like, transformers or something, cuz the leads are teen kids. but it's not. it's a very adult show; both the imagery and the themes.

I kind of felt that Mando was finished at the end of S2. Not surprised that they're making S3 (bc 🤑), but they told a complete story through 2 seasons. It will be interesting to see if they can keep the quality up. Book of Boba was disappointing.

finished? nah. grogu's story needs to be completed, esp. since he didn't go with luke. a yoda species can't just be left to vanish into thin air.

AMD has a unique opportunity to grab buckets of market share. if they price their 7000 series reasonably, green will be left holding their dicks and a bunch of unsold 4000 cards.

Vladimir Putin’s defense minister sent a clear message to the people of Russia: their country is at war not just with Ukraine, but with the entirety of the West.

I imagine there's more than one A-10 warthog pilot chomping at the bit to strafe Russian hardware and personnel in Ukraine just for fun.
By now even the average hardline Russian realizes that the math doesn't add up. You've been in Ukraine for over 6 months and claim to have lost less than 6000 troops but need 300,000 more.

i really wish someone with influence would say this out loud - putin isn't just at war with UKR - he's made russia the enemy of the world. he keeps blustering on about how he needs more troops to fight the west, but someone needs to say it for all to hear - the west is not your enemy if you don't attack us. if we really wanted to destroy russia we would've done so in the 90s when they were completely incapable of putting up a fight. but he's locked in that cold war us vs them mentality and i think ti's become pathological for him - utterly incapable of thinking in any other terms. he needs to be overthrown, no two ways about it. this war in ukraine is utterly pointless - if he'd negotiated i think they would've happily given russia access to sevastapol and their black sea ports.

This whole launch oozes of hubris, especially after the Evga debacle. I really hope AMD's RDNA3 announcement hits Nvidia hard at the 4080 range of cards.

i'm betting the radeon 7900xt will be faster than the 4080 16gb and probably cost $1000. the sweet spot will be the 7800xt which will almost certainly be faster than that garbage ass 4080 12gb and probably msrp $700.

I'm only in the market for 3090's for the foreseeable future. Especially EVGA 3090's.

I don't give a damn about games. I need VRAM for my language models. 2x3090 is just barely enough to fit a lightweight version of GPT-NeoX for fine tuning.

40xx series does nothing in the VRAM department, so there is no reason to look at that generation.
The fact that Nvidia intends to sell 12 GB VRAM 4000 series cards means they have their heads up their ass. The fact that they are selling 3000 series cards with 8 and 12 GB of VRAM means they had their heads up their ass already. Also don't forget expect triple slot cards and power requirements through the roof.

yeah the 4080 12GB is 100% bullshit. 12GB is not enough today for a top end gamer card, and only 192 bit memory bus too. that'll start hitting memory limits sooner rather than later which is completely unacceptable for an $800 card. for that price it needs to last the entire product cycle. it SHOULD be a 4070.

well entry level is 3050, which are currently 300ish, but should go down if the new 3060s are 300. but honestly i don't see who these cards are aimed at. that's about the time the 40 series are coming out, although seems like the lower end maybe not till early '23. still, a 3 month lifespan for a new card with very expensive memory? almost seems like it's aimed at miners if mining wasn't going through a mass extinction right now.
