    Nintendo Switch

    "Our friends at Microsoft" Gaming is weird.
  2. Do they need to write cheques upfront? I believe Microsoft have a scheme where a streamer can earn 5% of purchases made through their Mixer streams. That's still a relatively clunky process compared to just clicking an ad and playing instantly but it's still a potentially lucrative source of revenue. https://techcrunch.com/2018/02/20/mixer-microsofts-twitch-competitor-adds-game-sales/ Link is old so the scheme may have changed.
  3. Well the market for yesterday's conference seemed to be game streamers and companies interested by the idea of game streamers selling their game through YouTube. Maybe that'll be enough to get the ball rolling?
  4. I've dabbled a bit with making sausages at home and did a reasonable amount of research beforehand through reading and watching videos online (The Scott Rea Project is a good channel). Dumpsters description of how sausage is made offends me. And I'm not even close to being a competent sausage maker.
  5. My superhot takes. 1. At some point there'll have to be a split between Google and YouTube. That's probably a discussion for another day. 2. No real exclusive content shown seems like a mistake. 3. I thought the whole point of moving to cloud computing was that we wouldn't need dedicated boxes to handle each customers needs. Xcloud and this just seem to be moving the dedicated box to somewhere else. 4.State share seems cool. Bit underwhelming really.

    Crackdown 3

    It popped the other night for me. I ended up making a few runs through Quists tower to get it in the end. I'm down to 12 agility orbs left so I'll try and get the last one I need in The Vision before taking a break from the game for a while. Searching for the hidden orbs will be a drawn out affair. EDIT:Started a game on easy last night just to see if I could straight to Niemand after the tutorial and win. Which I did. Which was nice.

    Sony definitely not buying Take Two

    Hard to see how Sony buying Take Two wouldn't end up as being bad/more expensive for enthusiasts like your average Rllmuk forumite. Microsoft would almost certainly respond (Sega, Square?) and you'd imagine Goolge and Amazon would make moves to bolster their streaming services. Could end up needing two consoles, a PC and subscriptions to at least three services.
  8. Are Splash Damage working on anything non-Microsoft related at this point?

    Football Thread 2018/19

    My two problems with xG. 1. It's another stat wallies will try and shit up my timeline with in an attempt to back up their poorly constructed arguments. The usual throw enough numbers into your argument to make it look good guff even though the numbers can be easily dismantled. 2. It's success will just encourage gimps to try and get their own new stats measure established as a thing. Anfield Index have been trying to create some sort of pressing stat for players. It's the worst kind of bad aids though. It's just so happens that players they already have a hard on for, like Mama Sakho are totes amazeballs when it comes to their definition of a passing stat. Lovren, who they truly hate, was a mysteriously awful presser. So in closing, xG is fine as a stat if it's used by people who aren't idiots.
  10. I think it's definitely happening, just a question of when.

    Crackdown 3

    I know how I'm meant to get it but there doesn't seem to be any way to guarantee the necessary explosion. I'll just have to stay repeating the process until it finally happens.

    Crackdown 3

    I'm tempted to start a legendary playthrough. With the exception of "Secondhand Shrapnel" which has a luck element to it I'm now close enough to finishing the rest of the game that the idea of going for the full set of achievements seems relatively doable. It'll probably take me years of dipping in and out of the game to get there though.
  13. Nice and vague so. Hopefully there's a clearer explanation out there.
