    If they also start to do MiSTer and old games streams, I might not stick around here any longer. With huge apologies to Rorie.

    Clean minimal UI was refreshing, though we won't know what it will look like until the game is finally out. The first game's beautiful graphics were somewhat marred by a bunch of busy distracting GUI ...

    @ll_exile_ll: I don't agree that all games are equally at risk. Huge difference between a DRM-free game on GOG vs. an exclusive game on Stadia, IMHO. Though it's indeed up to fans to make responsible ...
