I am curious if he does, does he follow the story on HBO or does he go down a different path.

Interestingly how does the prequel, that HBO is producing, impact what might happen?  Grant you he has already laid out a lot of the back story in his books.

It is a serviceable game.  I guess it depends on what pissed you off about it in the first place.  I finished the game last year after a long hiatus.  I still had issues with the game but overall I enjoyed it.  It is disappointing, especially when compared to what Mass Effect was.

The first has been on my Wish List for so long.  I haven't gotten it because I have heard mixed things about how it has aged.

Something to keep an eye on.

Um....that would be a twist.

I think the Blacksmith is going to end up on the throne.

I have to agree with Trevor Noah.  This is some pretty funny shit: https://twitter.com/TheDailyShow/status/1108526385314914304

I enjoyed the game but the story bugged me.

I also wish ARPGs would get out of the, you need to complete the game three times in order to get to end game.  That is one thing that Blizzard finally got right.

If all the games became streaming would they even bother with trying to stream it to Middle Earth?  You might get screwed in such a scenario Timmeh!

Interesting news item on why this is potentially bad for gaming: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-47634263

Interesting article.  I think we are already seeing some of the problems that he was alluding to.  Battlefront, ME:A, Diablo: Immortal are all examples (there are other)  of games where business decisions are being made that run counter to what is best of the gaming experience.  I think the author is right that something like this would make things worse.

For gamers, there are a number of hurdles. Phil Harrison, Google’s man in charge of Stadia, told me his team's tests managed 4K gaming on download speeds of “around 25mbps”.

That must be in perfect conditions.  Xfinity is supposedly supposed to give me 250mbps.  I really only can measure 100mbps.  And there are still times when I am not happy with it.

Google's gaming platform if you haven't heard.

Interestingly they are talking that this platform is going to work without local hardware and installation.  I find this difficult to believe that they have figured out a way to stream the performance necessary to make this work.  Conceptually this has been something I knew people were trying to tackle, but I have trouble believing that it has been solved.  Shit, I feel like I can't always count on Xfinity to give me a stable stream and they are the fastest ISP in my area.

So right now I am filing this under cool idea, but I will believe it when I see it.

Love, Death & Robots!

Highly, highly recommend this anthology from Netflix.  I have watched five of the shorts so far and I have liked all and loved two.  Very edgy and NSFW or family.  Adults only need apply.

Sorry to hear that.  My PS3 is still running.  Mainly used for Netflix at his point.  Impressive that they last this long.

Why would go with an X-Box?
