The UK has officially left the EU, well, kind of. Now we are in the next phase of negotiations, a transition period that is supposed to run until January 2021.

Because GeForce Now lets you play games you "own" something I'll get into in a bit its a little discouraging that game developers can basically cut off access to games you've paid money for. This whole thing throws into question whether or not you should invest your time and money into the platform. There are certainly people who think that game streaming is the future of gaming, but when you can't be guaranteed access to the games you have paid for, it's a future that I don't want to be a part of.
