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.

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.

Such transformative, much wow.

If game streaming were relevant today we would be talking about it other times than a service doing it closing down. We are not. Although all this really tells ya is that the companies doing these services right now don't know what they are doing. I couldn't image any offer worse than Stadia. Pay full price for timed rental with zero platform interlinks. Yeah, same reason Gamepass is garbage - except for games where you don't care about that. But imagine playing WH3 on Gamepass, only to realize you just pwned yourself out or literally everything else related to that game compared to if you owned the trilogy and dlcs on steam.

Is it finally worth playing? I’ll probably pick it up during the holidays (on sale)

It's been "worth playing" since it's PC release.

No

It's kinda worth it. the game is still functional what it is. Linear story about V + Silverhand and only that.
The difference is that with the 6 patches over 2 years (well.. when I put it like that it sure sounds atrocious eh?) made the game better, and fun it was always. YOu have a TON of build diversity and at the core it's an RPG - where you don't so much pick a character, but you do pick a role. And you can have VASTLY different experiences depending on which stat you push to 20.

The gigs are kinda meh, the story missions are great, the companion missions are good. And the side-gigs are lackluster and forgettable. Only thing aside that are police gigs (even less relevant, GEMS (would advise getting the GEM mod) which are basically little "events" inside in the world with no mission attached but that still give you some reward. And then there is the mini-bosses, cyberpsychos which all use possible player builds.

I liked the 2nd playthrough - but even 2 years later it's still just a 7 out of 10 game. They fixed plenty super bad bugs though.. so there is at least that. But there are still bugs, oversights and bad balance. And some things are downright broken - like the explode grenade quickhack (which does only 1% of your actual damage) or the cybermod where you get a rocket cannon that also does only 1% of it's supposed damage. It's like someone forgot to tune those...

When he got to Logitech GHub I felt that to the core.. when I fixed my g903 with new switches I also did a second mouse with new battery, so obviously wanted to test the 2nd mouse. except you can't have 2 mice paired at the same time.

Because? Well, no reason except to fuck with you. And because it's 2 G903s I can't tell which one is which in the fucking pairing menu either, its always a random order too.
but the best thing was when I did all that, literally on first try the app borked itself so hard I had to uninstall it with DDU and reinstall it. So ya

Thankfully for my keyboard and mouse setup the gHub is not required, mouse saves everything on it's own memory and my keyboard is "dumb" G11 with modded LED backlight (to white) and I am glad for that.

Did I mention my modded backlight works.. and works.. and works.. and the Logitech backlight died within 2 years? YEA....

This has to do with powersupplies, a 3.0 spec from February. I find one on amazon, $270 for 850W, so may be a while before they are more commonly available

Well, it really has to do with a GPU that needs 600W which is flat out insane. Of course a PSU with properly designed 12V oc protection is gonna trip at 50A ! The spec says max (for 1 second before FULL cut-off) is 55A

For the life of me I cannot spot any improvements, performance or AI wise.

Are you saying you can't see any changes since the day 1 patch? AI -has- been very much improved. Is it ground breaking now? No but it's on par with most every other sandbox world now at least. The AI drives cars much better too, you ram them you can knock them out as well.

And you don't see any better FPS from over a year ago nor has better FX like reflections and ray tracing?

I think this boils down to you are just not very observant.

Haha yeah, I played day 1 with reduced settings and it was pretty obvious the game was messed up. I think I did what most people did and put the blinders on and just followed the linear main story from A-Z, which was pretty solid. But, these days I can get 4K and the performance is great, car mechanics, gunplay, etc etc are all SO much better.

I can play it buttery smooth on my 1070 at 1440p on HIGH even... they optimized this SUPER well and FSR is helping of course. But there are still plenty of bugs if you are exploring and experimenting a lot. In Rivers family reunion for example, you can enter his car during a "walk and talk" scene which deadlocks you. Or people still fall through the map sometimes, rarely, much rarer. Overall plenty of improvements.. but more Edgerunner integration would have been good. Why can't we journey to the moon? It only costs 250k in the show. My V is swimming in 10x that.

And they did not fix the cops as much as nerf them to the ground. Don't think I ever even got into a firefight with the cops because you can just run randomly and jump on a roof and be safe...

No it’s just more clickbate worthy of blocking the website. We have no idea how it’ll perform until reviews come out. CUDA cores, RTX and Tensor cores have gotten more performant per core each generation. Plus there are major clock speed increases compared to last gen this time.

These cards are way too expensive so waiting for a $500 version though. Maybe end of year.

Uh, I can't read cursive either and I am not from the 90s .... learn to write properly or bust.
As in, Times New Roman, 16pt - block aligned left-right with a 5% margin

Ps.: Everyone who ever has to read your garbage hand writing will thank you

Funny sidenote: In my German school we never learned cursive - which made deciphering "old German" literally impossible. Might as well be another language - my parents can read it, so they are conscripted as translators when need arises heh

PPs.: If you work in IT, and write notes or work orders, writing block text is literally mandatory.

This EVGA thing is so strange. I get that they are pissed with Nvidia, but isn't that a great opportunity to try a new partnership? At least try AMD for a generation or two. This feels like EVGA is "cutting off their nose to spite their face."

Maybe AMD and INTEL offer exactly the same shitty deals? 5% profit margin according to rumors, I'd have quit any deals with NVIDIA way before that given Nvidia purportedly has 65% profit margin per chip+board (it's not even a full card!) and wanted to push EVGA even lower and refused to negotiate at all.
