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.
