Ok

This is already my life.  I don't need a game for it.

So is the Steam Link only useful for streaming games?  I mean can I stream this to every room of my house?  It would be easier than walking around carrying my massive 1988 boombox and by god my housecats need to know whos the man around here.

 

I was trying really hard to find an excuse to link that video, I love it.

You can stream whatever you want on your computer. I used to stream movies to the TV. In fact I have never streamed a single game since I own the Steam Link.

 

Dishonored 2 worth $13?

I believe so.

 

Edit.

That's all sales now.  Blah, blah, refunds, no dailies, yadda yadda.  Hasn't been an exciting sale in years.

 

But we can look forward to someone buying $275 worth of low grade indie trash and 15% off AAA games and saying "The sale was great for me!" (see previously linked comic)

Eventually they'll be giving Steam Links away like CueCats.

I still have my CueCat.

 

I had a decent PC at the time and got the USB model. 

I could still use my CueCat.

 

I feel like TrumpCat right now with the amount of winning I feel.

Considering what you normally pay for video games..?  I can only answer, yes.  :lol: 

 

(Though I have not played it so that is a 100% assumption.)

I was going to get in on this deal, then I read on the Steam Link page that 2016-2017 Samsung TVs now have a Steam Link app available for free. Just added it to my TV and it works great, very great.

 

I never grow tired of winning. 

Wow, thanks for the heads up.

 

I was slightly interested in the Steam Link deal until I read your post. I have a 2016 Samsung 4k but I rarely use the app features, so when I checked the app store sure enough the Steam Link app does exist. I played around with it last night, wired worked great with 0% network lag while WiFi received a slight ~2% lag according to network tests. Both big screen and full desktop PC mirroring mode worked pretty well. I'm not sure how often I'll use the app but it's nice to know it works, the option is there, and I can instead spend $20 of GabeN currency on some other spur of the moment purchase.

 

I did a little digging and there was a partnership between Valve and Samsung announced back on October 2016. The beta app finally came out in July 2017 and the full app released mid August 2017. I'm surprised I never came across this news before until now. Thanks TrumpCat.

Where’s the best place to get destiny 2 now? GMG has it for $50.99, are they reliable? It’s $47.99 at Best Buy with a $10 credit, but with it being 70GB, I’d rather preload it this weekend.

Get it from one of the people selling the NVidia codes. Its going for about $40 BIN on Ebay, but possible to find cheaper on the P2P trade sites like Steamtrades and Reddit Steam Game Swap. You need a GTX 1080 or 1080ti to redeem it though. If you don't have one, if you know someone who does they can do it for you. 

 

And yes, GMG are fine.

I'd assume that Best Buy is selling you a key, so you should be able to preload it either way, shouldn't you?

If its the physical version, then probably not. At that price I doubt its digital.

If you loved the original, then...hell yes!!!

 

Dishonored 2 is awesome, provided you have a PC that can handle the Void Engine. It's based off Id Tech 5 (which powered Rage), so it's un-optimized as crap. There are in-game caps (i.e. 30, 45, 60, Uncapped, etc etc) which might be important, depending on your performance; so if you need it (in-game cap), use it.

 

The game's great overall; and some of the levels are absolutely amazing - i.e. The Time-Travelling Level and Clockwork Level really stand-out for me.

No, it is.  The box says "Download Only" right on it.

Under what category in Samsung's Smart Hub did you find the Steam Link App under?

Right, meaning its in a physical package. If he's ordering it to be shipped is what I was referring to.

I gotcha.  I assumed he was picking it up locally, not having the box/code shipped.

Destiny 2 was a 39GB download.

There was a good post on the Destiny subreddit basically explaining how there was a huge shift to  focus on casual players. You can basically hit the level cap by doing the weekly stuff pretty easily, and after that you're pretty much just...done. There's no real incentive to grind after that.

It's worse than that; power level means jack. Not a single mode, pve or pvp, is affected by it. It's just numbers signifying how much time you've wasted. Fun game, otherwise.

When did couch co-op lose its popularity?  I was trying to find a shooter to play with the kid and Destiny isn't 2 players, Splatoon not 2 players... wtf.  I don't want to get on a network with someone who's like 3 feet from me.
