The Top Game Streaming Services

As a popular part of the gaming industry, streaming helps to give players remote access to some of the top games out there right now. These services help to allow game users to stream different games, in the same kind of way that you would with Netflix, for TV shows and films. What that means for games is that they won’t need to have expensive devices or have a huge amount of storage space on consoles to play a wide variety of games. Instead, all that will be needed is having a stable internet connection. 

If someone is looking for a more affordable way to game, with access to a large number of titles, then is this the way forward? Without having to upgrade your device or get more storage, it certainly could be. The technology is new, and the marketplace is inundated, so companies are looking to make the next big thing. Of course, there are a variety of options and different kinds of gaming, such as online casino games. If you’re looking for something like a Casino Casino review it is available online. But what about game streaming? Here are the best game streaming services currently available to gamers.

Xbox Game Pass: One of the top examples of a game streaming service is the Xbox Game Pass. It tops the list as it works a little differently to others. For a set fee a month, you have a subscription that gives you access to a large number of games, and you can download them onto your Xbox One and use that storage. This is good because it means that you don’t need to think about internet speed or how that is impacting it all, and how it can impact your overall gaming experience. The games need to be mentioned too, though. Xbox Game Pass has one of the best game libraries with free games, compared to any of the other game streaming services. From games like Rise of the Tomb Raider to Gears of War 4, you’ll find all notable games as part of the service. The good news is that it isn’t limited to only Microsoft-published games, as there are a number of third-party games available.
PlayStation Now: Sony has some top quality video games, but before now, you have to own one of their consoles to be able to play them. Using PlayStation Now, it means that you can play a large number of games that are exclusive to the platform, right from your PS4 or also from your PC, which is what differs from some others. You will need a subscription for either option, and any files that you use and save, will be saved and compatible for both the PS4 and for use with PCs. There is another service tool that helps you to download games and play them right on your console or device. You might not need to download them all, but if you do, it means that you can still enjoy your favourite games, regardless of internet connection. 
GeForce Now: If you are someone who has an Apple Mac or a low-end PC, but you still want to play some of the top rated games that are out, then GeForce Now could be the best option for you. You will be able to play the latest and greatest from a variety of different publishers, and you won’t have to think about your computer experiencing interference. 
GeForce Now is not a service for content like the others listed, however, you do have to buy the games that you want to play through an online store, much like you would have to with apps. Once you have the app on your device, then GeForce is cloud-based, so they will help you to play the game on any device, regardless of the device’s specifications. 

Of course, this is just a few suggestions when it comes to gaming and game streaming services, with other options available from platforms like Google, Shadow, and xCloud. Have you used any of these before? It would be great to hear what you think and which, if any, game streaming services that you have used before. Feel free to drop me a DM on Instagram!

The Sims 4 Star Wars Update

Just a quick post guys to talk about the next upcoming update for The Sims 4, my favourite game of all time. What do you think? Excited? Planning on purchasing? Or maybe treating yourself to another expansion pack. Don't forget EA do frequent discounts for 50-70% off periodically on their existing expansion packs. I recently completed a Playtest session for EA, so I'm really grateful to receive the University pack as a reward, and I'll be sending all my teens Sims off to college, I'm really excited to explore this pack. Fans have been expressing their concerns on social media recently in regards to the next Sims Star Wars update The Journey to Batuu, requesting different ideas from more skin tones, clothes, family items and so forth.

The Sims have addressed fans concerns in a letter which I found to be really dignified and comforting, I still have the utmost respect for EA and I love Sims 4, the expansion pack to follow will be fire! For future updates it would be really good to take a poll survey with maybe 3 new update expansion pack ideas, and the winning vote gets officially released, something along these lines. The update seems really innovative and exciting, but I have alot to contend with in the way of expansion packs that I haven't bought yet, so I'm going to be busy working my way through these for now. In the meantime go easy guys on IG and Twitter the comments regarding the update, the development team work flat out. I like the concept.
