  1. Love this! I knew nothing about this and am not a gamer, but this was still a fun read. Video games are certainly evolving. I think I might give this one a try in a while, because I’m late to everything.


    1. Awesome, game streaming is going to be the new wave. Xbox is coming with XCloud and Playstation with PS Now, it’s going to be huge for gaming
