As humans, we are required to deal with various different factors throughout our lives. While the factors are too many, a significant one hailing from this pack is how we must adapt to changing environments. You see, if we refuse to move on a rather consistent basis, we run a major risk of stagnating over time, and that can have seriously negative repercussions. Hence, in a bid to make the said process more approachable, the world would supplement its efforts through some dedicated tools. Now, all these tools left their own unique impact on us, but none of them, notably enough, moved the needle quite like technology. Technology’s credentials as a differentiator talk at length to creation’s relentless efforts towards becoming more than just a supplementary tool. What’s even better is that these efforts have arrived across every imaginable area on our spectrum. With such a dynamic running the show, it is natural to end up clocking ridiculous heights. However, despite having achieved so much already, human beings are still looking for something grander. This search is now, in fact, guiding us to some outright unknown aspects of technology, and as a result, we are also witnessing a whole new flurry of benefits. One recent announcement from Amazon gives us an insight into the way these benefits are shaping up within our global gaming industry.
Amazon’s cloud-based game streaming service, Amazon Luna is officially launching for everyone in the US. The service was initially announced back in September 2020, except since then; it has only functioned as an invite-only program. The wait was long, but it was seemingly worth it because, alongside a nationwide launch, Luna is also introducing three brand new channels. The first one named, Prime Gaming Channel, will feature a rotating set of games for Prime members, with no costs involved. Talking about the March lineup, it will probably include Devil May Cry 5, Observer, System Redux, PHOGS!, and more. Next up, Luna’s second new channel is the Retro Channel, which as stated on the tin, will take you down the memory lane through some classic games like Street Fight II, Hyper Fighting, Metal Slug 3 and others. According to Amazon, the Retro Channel is going to help you “re-live the glory days of arcade gaming”. Lastly, the third addition revolves around Jackbox Games Channel. Carrying eight party packs from Jackbox Games, this one will bring plenty big titles such as Quiplash, Drawful, Trivia Murder Party and more.
While Prime Gaming is free, Retro and Jackbox Games channels will both cost you a monthly fee of $4.99. In regards to other modifications, gamers can now broadcast Luna gameplay on Twitch, and trying Luna on Fire TV is also made relatively easier.
