I realize this is currently a stopgap solution. But in the mean time, is it possible to add more resolution options than 720p? My poor rural internet can only keep up with 480p at best, and usually only up to 360p.

You have to be a partnered channel on Twitch in order to have quality options at all, and the channel they are using for GBi right now isn't one. I'm not sure what the solution might be there.

Apparently this was solved because there are now many quality options. All my personal peeves with GBI on Twitch are now nil.

Hopefully this will be solved soon. I know they're just looking at a AGC/compressor, and we'll see how it turns out and whether they like it or not. Meanwhile check out Breakaway.One if you want to fix it on the user's end across all of windows, including games and whatever uses that sound device. I agree it should be optimized server-side, but Breakaway.One is free and unlimited in trial mode with a short jingle after every hour of processing. I use mine for everything and even have a core set up for my microphone so I'm never too quiet or loud... all trial though.

I used to call it the "Super" when it was new. Nintendo 64 was just "64" and the NES was just "Nintendo."

The missing options are "Super" and "Snez" (not to be confused with Snes). Now I call it S.N.E.S. or Snes or Super N.E.S.

Thank goodness it's not another Wedding Weekend. I'd take a hundred Chili Days before another Wedding Weekend.

If you don't subscribe to the correct lists or disable the "non-intrusive" ad list, you might not experience the issue at all.

Here the relevant part of my filtering log (AdGuard standalone; browser independent, Win1064).

URL: https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/premium/

Data type: Document

Rule: Content filtered (1 rule applied):

List: EasyPrivacy

Rule causing block: (/compiled/tracking.)

Triggered by: <script src='https://static.giantbomb.com/js/compiled/tracking.js?e741f404f9389ef8c1935f6710469357' type='text/javascript'>

So the list causing the problem for me seems to be EasyPrivacy. Disabling the list itself is a workaround. But the solution would be to add this to the custom filters of whatever ad blocker you are using:

@@||static.giantbomb.com

That's two at symbols and two vertical strokes (shift+backslash) before the string you want to whitelist. This should allow Premium users to keep any custom blocked elements or custom styles for giantbomb.com without breaking the tracker that makes videos work.

Let's check in with how Sony feels about this in 12-18 months. These consoles haven't even been out a year, so OF COURSE the catalog of games isn't very big yet. If EA were to round up all those old DOSbox emulated games they sell on GOG, and emulate them on these new pc-based-consoles, the back catalog of games would increase more than 1000%. The value proposition would then be a no-brainer.

edit: Honestly though, these services that offer "free" things are probably just going to lead to a bunch of entitled bitching when the monthly selection happens to be weak.

I paid the mysterious man with a guitar. He offered me advice if I paid him. He told me fools spend while wise men save. Fuckin guy eh.

Cool. So the game itself offers philosophical affirmation regarding my reason for not buying it yet. Guilt lifted.

So bummed. I procrastinated too long and the price went back up to full. Guess I won't be getting it yet.
