Play 'Assassin's Creed Odyssey' for Free by Beta Testing Google's Cloud Streaming Service - using just Chrome browser and 25mbps Internet


Rumors of Google’s entry into the game-streaming space have circulated for ages, but today those rumors were finally confirmed when the company announced it will be teaming up with game publishers for its newly announced Project Stream service. Project Stream will allow users to play fully-fledged console and PC games through their Chrome browser without the need for a gaming PC or console hardware, all thanks to the cloud.

The first of these partnerships is with French publisher Ubisoft and its upcoming title, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. While Google says the full, public version of Project Stream won’t be released for some time, those interested in helping Google test the service can sign up for its upcoming closed beta. Selected beta users will be able to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey via Chrome, provided they meet all the technical requirements.

Sometimes I play bad games and I write about it so you don't have to. This time it's Master of Orion (2016).

Pick 5 Games Meme

If you had to recommend someone play 5 games to really get a feel for you/your tastes, what five would you pick?
I really don't recommend getting into any of those game, because they mostly are time-consuming optimization games and/or very old.

For each game you can play to get a feel for my taste, I added a recommendation for a more accessible game you should play:
  • Civilization (1991) => Civilization VI (2016)
  • Fallout 2 (1998) => Shadowrun Returns (2013)
  • Deus Ex (2000) => Fallout 4 (2015)
  • FlatOut (2004) => Wreckfest (2018)
  • Dota 2 (2013) => Just don't try if you don't already play

Just stumbled upon the following song on Spotify: Tristram Village (From "Diablo 2") by FamilyJules from Video Game Guitar Covers, Vol. 4.

From Diablo II (2000)? But it's only one quest location, compared to being the game hub in Diablo I (1997)!

I'm getting old.

Added a new section to switching.social for #DRMfree alternatives to #Steam:

https://switching.social/ethical-alternatives-to-steam/

It is quite worrying that a company with over 50% of the market also has control over its users' games through their DRM app. You have to agree to what Steam demands, or lose your game collection.

Even if you are a fan of Steam, that's too much power in one company. Sooner or later they may be tempted to do something bad, or be bought by someone who does something bad.

Jacksonville Landing esport shooting thoughts

Of all the competitive violent video games that exists, it ended up being NFL Madden that tilted the shooter.

I hope this will put the final nail in the coffin of the long-standing ridiculous idea that violent video games inspire real-life violence.

Violent video games - harmless fun after all suggests the University of York?


Violent video games have long been a contentious and emotive topic, striking at the heart of parental fears for their offspring and offering easy pickings for politicians seeking to explain tragic events.

Detractors argue they’re a breeding ground for aggression, corrupting the men, women and children that play them and foreshadowing real life events. Others say there’s no proven link and highlight the positive effects playing can have, like increased concentration, strategy formulation and stress relief.

Now a new wave of research is probing the accuracy of previous studies and seeks to redefine the debate. Academics at the University of York say they’ve found “no evidence” that video games make players more violent. Their experiments with more than 3,000 participants concluded games don’t “prime” players to behave in certain ways and showed increased realism doesn’t necessarily translate to greater aggression.

Well, I guess I should give this a try. This is #myFirstPost here so I am not exactly sure what I am doing lol. I came here from a list of the best 'Alternatives to Fakebook' seeing as I am absolutely done with that site (that is in of itself a long story, that has been building over years and years).

My name is Robert Lauer, and I often go by the names DistantWords or DistantWeb. I have been building websites for about 20 years or so, with the last 17 (give or take) having a massive focus on PHP/MySQL. For a little over a decade I worked for an online radio station called Scrub Radio, which was devoted to playing 100% independent recording artists.

In fact, that's how I got my start there. The guy who founded it came to me to play my music (I use to do that way back when). After checking it out, I became a DJ there, and when his second webmaster bailed, he asked me to help. I worked as webmaster from 2005 to it's death in 2015. Since then I have been trying to figure out what exact... show more

I’m a recovering #politicaljunkie. Graduated from University of #Newcastle last year, studying Sociology, and have been searching for a job ever since. Feel free to follow the other #socialmedia links on my profile - I’m trying to find more people in #TheFederation or #Fediverse so that I can become more invested in and begin to use these social networks (like Diaspora and Mastodon) more.

I've been playing a bit of 'Spark the Electric Jester' after having it bake in my Steam catalogue for a while, and I'm having a blast with it. It's like Freedom Planet, down to being a Sonic homage from a SonicRetro user, but with an added twist of Kirby-style abilities.

It also has a great soundtrack, which is to be expected from the guy who headed Sonic Before/After the Sequel.

Last month a large number of full price commercial #games (including big names such as Civilization and Elder Scrolls) were revealed to contain the tracking software Red Shell:

If games were #OpenSource, it would be easier to avoid spyware 😟

But though they're rarer, open source games do exist 🕹️ 👾 👍

Hi, I'm sort of #NewHere. I've been sitting on this account relatively unused for like 3 months, I think it's time to start using it. I'm a big fan of #Linux ( #Debian ) and generally #FOSS. In my free time I enjoy planning/playing #DnD and playing single-player #VideoGames. Still in the process of learning #Japanese, too!

Same as when in America #women were 'allowed' to work in factories during WWII due the shortage of male workers, financial empowerment continues to #liberate women from #domination by their #spouses. #Divorce rates increase. Modern men need to grow the F up and transition from the brute mentality to education mentality. Physical brute force domination doesn't make you a Man, nor a #husband, nor a #father, physical brute control makes you an ass. Especially when used with #physiological #abuse and #manipulation. Being calm, caring, expressing #love and tenderness to all in your #family as well as educating yourself and using that #education to get money to support the well being of families and not for #drugs, cars, #motorcycles, #videogames, cigarettes or any other selfish crap.

Another World: the French touch for videogames


The French creative aesthetic has always been a bit different from that of English-speaking nations. In their paintings, films, even furniture, the French often discard the stodgy literalism that is so characteristic of Anglo art in favor of something more attenuated, where impression becomes more important than objective reality. A French art film doesn’t come off as a complete non sequitur to Anglo eyes in the way that, say, a Bollywood or Egyptian production can. Yet the effect it creates is in its way much more disorienting: it seems on the surface to be something recognizable and predictable, but suddenly zigs where we expect it to zag. In particular, it may show disconcertingly little interest in the logic of plot, that central concern of Anglo film. What affects what and why is of far less interest to a filmmaker like, say, François Truffaut than the emotional affect of the whole.

Crude though such stereotypes may be, when the French discovered computer games they did nothing to disprove them. For a... show more

Vidyacaust: E3 Highlights (It’s Not as Bad as You Thought It was Gonna Be)
 
I've been here a week but I'm #newhere in general. And I never made a formal post. I found Diaspora to be really interesting with its distributed pods with no central server. I've been a user of #Linux for years, with #Debian being my primary OS for several years.

I'm also into #anime, #mylittlepony, #videogames, #horses, and #parenting. I'm a strong #LGBT activist, as well as focusing on #transgender rights.
 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I run a pod at https://diaspora.somethinghub.com/

I'm interested in many things, like #art, #music, #videogames, and more! Looking forward to connecting.
 
Taking a week off from work has been fantastic. Did too much house work yesterday, though, so today is all about taking it easy. Watching the #anime Mirai Nikki which is right up my alley. I'm just late to the game since it came out in 2011. Also been playing a lot of #videogames and in particular #Overwatch. It's fun, though still have to deal with some shitty players. Some of the best games I've lost; but losing with a competent team on both sides is a lot more satisfying than winning (and obviously losing) because one team is just goofing around.
 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #sociology and #videogames.
