Yes, Microsoft appears to be implementing the Xbox strategy they've been saying they were going to implement for at least a couple of years now.

Nope. I'll be dropping it when my cheapo conversion expires at the end of next month.

It's a great service if you have the time and interest in the games they offer, but just doesn't fit into my life very well right now.

Nintendo Playing Card Co.

They really sold out when they started making video games. Filthy casuals.

I don't have a problem with the concept of early access, but I rarely have much interest in participating.

I have several problems with Electronic Arts, but in any given year I'll probably end up giving them money.

Nope. I legitimately need a new video card so will buy one as soon as my EVGA number comes up, but other than that I'm good. The impossibility of finding any hardware has quite conveniently destroyed all of my FOMO. I'm sure I'll get a PS5 eventually, but given the expected delays in video game production, I wouldn't be surprised if there's no compelling reason to bother until the end of 2022.

The idea of Google senior management trying to understand video game development will never not be funny to me. It's just so far removed from the kind of engineering they're used to and so difficult to fit into the kind of progress metrics the company was built on. Doomed from the start, really.

Not to say they can't still make Stadia work with third party games, but seems rather unlikely at this point.

Alpha Protocol would be my answer too but apparently there's at least 2 of us who want it!

Hell, I'll settle for the original AP on Xbox back compat.

But my actual answer is Sunset Overdrive (OK... it's probably not just me).

I have the premium podcast feeds in Overcast. Non-premium videos I usually watch on youtube. Premium videos I either watch in a browser or through the Xbox app.

Other than that, it's whatever GB stuff comes through my twitter feed. And occasionally I'll look at "latest videos" on the site to see what's new.
