The problem is any game that requires very fast feedback and/or is multiplayer seems to be totally dependent not on the service, but the quality of service from you ISP and the DNS routing employed.

Input latency will always be terrible with game streaming over the internet. It's unavoidable. When you press your mouse button to fire on a PC at home, the reaction is <10-20ms But when you do it over the internet, even with the best possible fibre connection, it'll be in >100ms but more likely 200ms. That's just awful. There's no way to overcome this until they invent quantum entanglement. It's a physical limit.

I'm going to guess it'll be an exclusive for about a month at best since nobody wants to use Stadia because it's a stupid idea with a stupid execution. WTF would you clog up the internet with graphics traffic. It's sOOOOOOOOOOOOO stupid.

And streaming video too! What a waste of bandwidth! It’s why I only have VHS and the occasional DVD.

Removing physical media is a good thing, games have already done this, streaming game images with terrible input lag is not an improvement for gamers :-)

Looksl ike they jsut tried to copy doom eternal and failed

Looks like the others in the series, what looks so bad? Looks like over the top everything.

Just looks slow and janky compared to doom eternal, the only reason the melee stuff works there is because it's super fast

Gave it a go, but the combat has no feel to consider it a "Souls" game. Thematically cool, but unplayable due to poor c ombat.

This seriously looks like it was slapped together by a mod team in quake 2. Must have been very quickly put together.

Funny that you mention Quake. We used to play Quake III 100 player no respawn matches at big LAN parties. It was battle royal before it was dubbed so :-)

And this game is DOA imo

I've always wanted a one of those Arkham games to be coop. If this is it, it'll be amazing. Especially if they make the already awesome combat coop-able e.g. you can pass enemies to each other etc.

Belgian Doctor Alfons Leempoels, 103, Walks Marathon To Raise Funds For COVID-19 Research.

lol so we can pretend that eating animals doesn't cause 95% of zoonotic diseases? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLGEhHML_1M

Eating/Farming animals has caused everything from the common cold to AIDS. There's a reason why they call it the BIRD flu, the SWINE flu, COW pox etc

Way too many Americans have gargled with bleach, sprayed their bodies with disinfectants to prevent COVID-19.

Let me fix that "Not enough Trump supporters have gargled with bleach, sprayed their bodies with disinfectants to prevent COVID-19"

Eating used coffee grounds may help cut waistlines, researchers say.

Anything other than doing what unbiased research shows - eat more fibre, eat fewer or no animal products.

Just sad, and everyone will die soon because humans are stupid glutenous creatures.

There will always be racists, best we can do is try to minimize their effect.

Hopefully not, discrimination is largely a learned behaviour - often times being rather insidious as it's passed down from families or even worse part of the culture (e.g. treatment of women in middle east), but it can be corrected with appropriate education.

Black game developers are underrepresented. This is probably because the minority as a whole is disadvantaged in this country. This would support more black game developers.

Do all industries need to have equal amounts of all races though? Black people are over represented in other industries, sports and music being two that come to mind, so should we stop some of them to make way for more Chinese rappers, Indian pop stars, Arabic NFL players, or Jewish Basketball players? (well OK if someone wants to go back in time and stop Kriss Kross, I won't have any issues with that)

Given that African American's make up such a small portion of the population, to absolutely dominate athletics and have such a huge influence in pop-culture is pretty impressive if you ask me. On average, different races and nations and cultures are just better at different things. There's nothing wrong with that - it's just further proof that people should be treated as individuals based on their merit instead of treating all people of some arbitrary reason (in this case skin color, or heritage) in a certain way.

If you want diversity, then stop trying make everyone be the same. Every human deserves the same amount of human rights and freedoms, regardless of their occupation, so I don't really know why it's we'd need to make everyone be equal in numbers in each industry. It's not about making everyone the same, it's about treating everyone with the same respect.

For $1M you could do a lot more to support black communities, especially targeting people who need it most. Then again, perhaps the research shows that this kind thing has a snowballing effect, where a successful black game developer will then influence more black people to get educated and find a way out of the poverty cycle, then great!

Anyway HUMBLE is not doing this to solve racism, or poverty. It's going to take a lot more than $1M. This gesture is an act of solidarity, and this is quite appropriate given current events.

Autopilot failure? More like actual pilot error. Was he too busy taking a dick pic, he had well over 300 feet to hit the brakes, slow down or even change lanes.....

Yeah the Autopilot should stop, but man if something like that happens, and you don't attempt corrective action on your own, you're an idiot.

I'll wait for the version which will treat my ED and hair loss. Wait. I don't have either of those problems! It worked already!

ED is reversible very easily, just don't eat foods high in saturated fat & cholesterol (dairy/cheese/chicken). And dramatically increase your fibre intake from real food (e.g. potatoes). It makes me giggle that people do all sorts of weird stuff and pay thru the nose for treatments and pills, when it's all available for free with a simple diet change. But then again it shouldn't surprise me since we live in a world people value the taste of bacon over their health a longevity.

I bet more people would get on board if we started marketing rice and beans and corn as "fertility foods for real men" and put a monster truck on the packaging....

Anyway sorry for the off topic ramble :-)

Tasmanian tiger footage from 1935 released.

What lovely footage of an animal pacing backwards and forwards in a tiny pen where it's clearly lost it's mind.

Now excuse me while I go punch a wall out and pretend it's the face 1930s humanity.

So once again Intel is slightly faster than AMD, and once again AMD will simply drop the price a little to make them far better value CPUs

Everyone wins basically (customers). If you want value, go with AMD, if you want all speed money can buy, go Intel.
