this tweet: "Refunds are great, but the hours of gaming lost, my @Hitman saves, the 400 hours on @CyberpunkGame gone as there still no cross progression there. So disappointed. Won't be buying any Google products again."
I'd NEVER put any kind of saves I wanted to keep on such a service. It was foolish to do so on a google product especially with their reputation. Like if my save is worth the price of the game to me, I'd buy the game on a reliable platform.

Technically they did what they said in that 2019 story "continue investing in it for years to come."
They did, for 3 years. Then stopped.

I'm actually surprised they are refunding not just the hardware but any game purchases. That's decent of them.

And then you have nvidia really pouring investment into cloud services relating to graphics (if you watched the announcement of the 40xx series, which was like 10 minutes in an hour long presentation), with some really exciting sounding commercial things happening.

Think xcom but only the strategy layer, and vastly expanded.
I'm enjoying it.
So far it's rated mostly positive on steam

"How companies 'game' us into logging in and paying up"

So where's all the conspiracy theorists who said valve wasn't actually speeding up production it was people canceling? Because haven't seen any evidence of that, instead keep seeing evidence of valve continuing to tell the truth.

Also cool: Easy ways to tweak the performance on a per-game basis i.e. I set the TDP to 5 watt for Monkey Island so that the battery life is extended.

I installed Discord in desktop mode and added it to the steam library as a 3rd party "game" and it also works just fine. The microphone is pretty decent from what my friends are telling me.
Nice tweak! So are you able to chat while playing games then?

What could go wrong? EA has a long track record of being an honest company with only gamer's best interests at heart, right? There programming prowess is also unequalled, so there is certainly no way this will totally bork peoples systems.

$15 a month. Is Ubisoft insane?!
They are the only subscription service to offer the highest available versions of their games (see: Deluxe, season pass, expansions, etc) on the service, so it makes sense that they'd push a higher average monthly fee.
I'd do it for a month or two to do a popular game I was interested in, and then promptly cancel. $15 or $30 for a new $60 game (or since it's the deluxe version could be the $90 version of it) isn't a bad deal.

That's great nVidia, if only turning on Ray Tracing didn't crash the game for me on my 2070 Super... even after the patch that supposedly fixed it.
Are you also using the new nvidia driver specifically for the game?

Ironically, with swing votes being so close in a lot of areas, this may have been enough all on it's own for future elections to be swayed.
Wonder if anyone would have acted different if they knew "don't wear a mask" could mean "losing elections"

As of March 2022, appears at least 100,000 of the excess 1+ million deaths (aka the real covid death numbers) are from more red leaning locations.

With some of these new Linux distros, I'd leave both Windows and macOS in a heartbeat if there were more game support and a few apps that I can't live without. It makes little sense that I'm vendor locked just for games and a small handful of apps. I've been playing around with Zorin OS for a while and I have to say that their direction is way more impressive than both MS and Apple. I really hope a Linux distro starts competing with MS and Apple (Ubuntu struggles a bit) 🤣

Good news on that front, steam deck is pushing more and more games to work with linux (at least under a wrapper even if not native). Some of the big deals were the various anti cheat engines which are now mostly compatible. Steam deck has also been pushing the wrapper development significantly.

Another review from Ars
Ars

I'm certain they will fix any technical issues, sony is very invested in getting this right, and they've done right by PC gamers for days gone, horizon zero dawn, and gods of war, they already predicted they'd have huge sale increases from the PC ports they are doing for the next year.

Also, very happy this is not an EGS exclusive!
Sony is big enough that they don't care about a few million on EGS exclusive to lose a pile of sales on steam.
They've seen what their good quality recent PC ports do in sales (piles) for horizon zero dawn, god of war, etc. So they have historical data. And they predicted huge sales from doing PC ports over the next year. Which wouldn't happen if they gave exclusives. So for once, focusing on growth for the shareholders is helping.
Ars

As a note, Epic has spent over $1 billion in exclusives, 105 games worth as of sept 2019 (averages about $10 mil a game). All but two of those games lost them money. And they are NOT yet profitable as a storefront, Epic themselves predict they won't be until 2025.

I don't have a carbon monoxide detector. I will know if I have a CO problem if I wake up dead one morning.
Dude, get one they are cheap. And while that's possible, it's more likely you will start to go insane.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2707118/
Survivors of severe, acute CO poisoning can develop long-term neurologic sequelae (e.g., impairments in memory, concentration, and speech, as well as depression and parkinsonism).4 These sequelae may arise immediately after CO poisoning or may be delayed (occurring 2–21 days after CO poisoning).4

Would you really want to roll the dice on destroying your quality of life in that way? When it's so cheap to abate that risk?

So there's a couple different kinds of smoke detectors, I forget which. One is better for near kitchen. But it's less sensitive as I recall so only get one of those for near the kitchen. Edit: That video someone linked earlier covers this, photo electric and ionization. Worth checking out, because what I said I think has things reversed. Important part is having a mix of them, but per the video don't get the dual ones.

Look up the standards for them, typically it's one in each bedroom and other major rooms and halls. Edit: Video also covers this

Get at least one CO detector for each floor, can be a combo fire/CO as needed

Do you have the wired backup connection with your existing? See if the new ones are compatible. Sometimes just a new pigtail makes it compatible (which often is included when buying hardwire backup ones). If you don't have that, consider if you want to get them wired into house power for backup power. (Maybe not as required for 10 year sealed). CO detectors NEED to be replaced in 10 years. Some smoke detectors can go a bit longer, but good idea to get everything replaced at the same time when it's old.

Consider if you want to hook them up to something smart. For instance Ring is compatible with a certain first alert model.

I never was able to beat the last fight (well I mean I'm guessing there's more after it but don't tell me any spoilers) on the PC, but I was using mouse and keyboard the whole time. I've been wondering if using the steam deck and it's controller stuff would help.
