Google Stadia Impressions, Half-Life: Alyx Confirmed

  • We open with a tribute to one of the main creators of EverQuest, Brad McQuaid, who passed away at the age of 51.
  • I got my Google Stadia Founders Edition, and the technology works and uses a lot of data, but the service isn't there yet. Like the old AT&T You Will ads predicted, game streaming WILL be how we play games in the future, but the company to bring it to us will NOT be Google.
  • Valve announced Half-Life: Alyx, a new AAA VR game coming out in March of 2020.
  • A lot of people are asking why Alyx doesn't have arms and why that breaks immersion, but I present the case that not having arms is better than having arms that aren't tracked (and are therefore not the same as the actual position of your arms.)
  • Then we take a call about how both VR and game streaming can't be the future.
