Awesome! Are these local times?

Also, I wish YouTube would actually use push notifications via email or mobile app when you have set a reminder on an upcoming stream.


Yip - all gamescom stuff still uses CEST / German time, despite being virtual.


I wonder what surprises MS will have up their sleeves with the Xbox show.

Reminder that some of the livestream is rated Mature 17+ and is unsuitable for children.


Do we even have those around here these days? :smile:

It was more a note to those who share their livestream viewing spaces with youngsters - probably some bad language and scary visuals that may not be all unicorns and rainbow farts. But you’re right - I’d guess the majority of MEWBS are 35-40ish.

Someone who can’t do 30 posts this week should do a poll. Maybe in a new Off-Topic thread…
