CAG Award of the Week winner!
And now there's a TSOT/TFBW Steam bundle for an extra 10% off. I almost bought TFBW yesterday. Glad I didn't, so now I can almost buy the bundle.

It's almost as if the last 2 episodes were written by a very bad GOT fan-faction writer.
The only thing that makes it "almost as if" as opposed to "literally that" is that you didn't pluralize "writers". The next two episodes are also written by Dan and Dave, expect them to similarly suck.

Wow, unlocks for last month were abysmal. And this month the headliner is a dead battle royale game that should be going F2P at any moment. Seriously, if you want a BR fix why would you play Blops over Apex? Pausing yet another month. As long as the unlocks for this month are as garbage as last month, I won't regret it.

Also calling AC a hack and slash is a giant question mark from me. The series started out with a heavy stealth focus.
Assassin's Creed is not Metal Gear Solid stealth, it's Tenchu stealth, i.e. hack-and-slash stealth (not to compare AC, which is garbage, to MGS or Tenchu, which are great). AC's "stealth" is: sneak around until you get caught, then do boring combat. Or, once you can't stand how boring the combat is, run away from the enemies and hide to avoid the punishment of having to play the game's boring combat.

GTAV is on PC because of GTAO. Red Dead Redemption is a labor of love, but Rockstar also has self-esteem. They like getting paid for the work they put in. PC players don't buy good games at retail prices, they just buy shit buckets of shark cards and microtransactions out the ass.
It makes less than zero sense for Rockstar, or anyone else interested in putting down real development money to make good single-player narrative games, to ever release any major narrative title on PC.
They should only release easy pushover jobs, anything easy that can turn a profit, or anything they can put tons of microtransactions into. That's all PC gamers spend money on. Well, that and bundles full of steam codes 90% of which they'll never play.

Game streaming seems way in the future to me. People still have demand to play demanding, response-sensitive games. There's no indication anything in the future is going to dramatically improve network latency beyond where it is right now: despite many game streaming services being available, they are all completely unplayable.
When it comes to streaming, video streaming is fine: latency is not an issue there. But gaming just doesn't work. Therefore, the future of gaming is watching other people play games on stream. You can get a top-of-the-line experience with the newest retail-price games running on the newest, most expensive and powerful gaming rigs, alongside an audience of thousands, without any of the frustration of playing the games yourself.
