So I'm in a position where my time to chill out and game is very limited due to working commitments and home/husband/father duties. At the moment I can game for a bit of time after 10:30pm when the kids and the wife are all asleep but I need to be dead quiet since my rig is in my bedroom.
I was thinking about streaming to the lounge via a steam link but wanted to get some options on how you good free folk do it :)
Yeah. It's a bit of an extreme solution but my desktop had a 780 I was looking to upgrade any way so I said screw it and ran with it once the laptops came out with full desktop GPU's.
Hope you find a solution. I'm still trying to figure out this whole gaming as a dad thing too. I usually only get 1-2 hours a night like 3 days a week.
Edit: I did get a steam link and it works great btw. I played some games with it this weekend while the wife/kid were gone and really enjoyed it. Bought one of the new bluetooth xbox one controllers to use with it.
Not tried Hearthstone so will certainly take a look at that!
@Yockanookany Yeah it's difficult isn't it! I've been thinking about the Steam link for ages, ended up buying one in the steam sale for £15 but its not arrived yet. I didn't know it can handle bluetooth though so that is a big plus for me since I hate wires with a passion!
Yeah it 100% supports bluetooth, I bought the new Xbox S controller because it does bluetooth. I had originally decided to one an xbox one controller I had and use the wireless USB adapter with it but you had to download a 20 dollar piece of software for that and the controller was on sale for $35 so I went that route instead.
I'm not too bothered by that, if a game is enjoyable then I don't mind spending a little more on it. Then again I also quite like grinding some games so I would probably do a bit of both if it turns out to be my thing.
