"Windows as a service" just means that we'll continuously keep it up to date. datamine you and sell your info through Practically forced Microsoft Live Logons, One Drive, Bing Search, Cortana and anything else that phones home... we will also monetize you with "modern apps" that all search results will list first. There is no ongoing fee."

Fixed.

Maybe, but no money in the world can heal his hurt pride. He still has a big ego and getting fired from his own hugely successful show about someting he probably considers a small, unimportant "thing" ...

I don't think so... he's had several run ins with the BBC and he probably had just as much of a buttfull of them as they had with him.

Seriously... with others willing to pick him up, and May and Hammond sticking by his side... I don't think he could care less about the BBC firing him.

... and yes, I agree he does have a big ego.

You have to say the computer belongs to a company in order to make a local account (on initial install). Doesn't have to join a domain through.

Meh. Still a gimmick. Great for racing games/flying sims/rollercoaster tech demos, but I'll keep waiting for holodeck/brain implants.

This.

Pretty much a niche market, IMO. Like 3D TV, but a little bigger.

I love gaming, but I have zero interest strapping something to my skull.

Well, I'm certainly not going to buy a game that takes me longer to download than play.

EQ was the best MMO for exactly the reason you just described. Consequence and danger. It was extremely easy to get in over your head and die in EQ, and that fear of death and corpse recovery kept things extremely exciting during group play in dungeons.

IMO, there still isn't an MMO that touches the goodness that is/was EQ. There are merely fisher price rip-offs of it.

They are releasing Velious in August, Kunark -> Vellious was the golden age of EQ IMO so if anyone was on the fence about checking this out now is the time.

Well... since you are obviously a masochist... You can jump on Brad's latest train wreck: Crapeon: Rise of the Spawn Campers

I pretty much stopped caring about more photo-realism in games around early DX9.

Too much photo-realism is actually anti-immersive to me.

Don't get me wrong... I'm all for API improvements for better performance and some better effects... but I want to play a game... not an interactive movie.

My iPad is 3 years old and shows no signs of being obsolete. It doesn't take a lot of horsepower to just surf the Net and do a few small tasks (Coming from someone that doesn't buy a ton of apps).

Also, since I don't have a ton of apps... I'm not locked into IOS.

The point is... the tablet market was going to plateau eventually... and it pretty much has.

Are they putting in the original game in this release too? The original game was 40 GB. that's a lot of data for a supposed add-on.

It's not an add-on... it's a standalone prequel game.

I never played New Order because something about Nazi's in the 1960's just didn't jive with me.... but I may pick this up.

Hope they fix the cars this time.

I can't imagine why they haven't patched a fix by now.

I never downloaded part 1. I wonder if there is a way to stitch them together so you don't have to launch 2 separate games.

On Steam Act 2 is patched into the game. There are no separate executables.

Cool... I registered my copy on Steam when part 1 came out... just never installed it.

Thanks.

Uh... this is so mod makers can make some money through steam workshop.

The money doesn't appear go to Bethesda, but probably some would go to Steam.

You can still use free mods from the Nexus and Steam.

So, I'm not sure how Bethesda screwed up?

Must. Resist. Buying...

Stop it with all this positive crap...

Oh gawd dammit...now I am going to buy it...

A bit of advice... Don't just click through the dialogs with the NPCs... Really soak in what is going on for the particular quest... and you will enjoy the game a whole lot more.

I'm one of the ESO fans. There's *something* to the game that just has me enjoying it so very, very much. I feel a strong connection with my character, running around doing quests while finding treasure chests and runes for enchantment makes exploring worth it and enjoyable. Every single quest is actually a quest-chain, with choices and consequences and an interesting story. I just love the gamw, and if you haven't played it, don't judge it. And no, it's no Skyrim. And who expected as much should get looked at.

Ditto.

That doesn't strike you as spin? Funny timing that they were bought just 30 days before planning an unrelated shutdown.

I pretty much took it the way SimplyMonk did (See quote below)... although I can't say for a fact, since I'm not involved with any of these companies, nor have I ever had an onlive account.

SimplyMonk wrote on Apr 3, 2015, 10:59:
OnLive would of had to have been actual competition for this to really make anything worst. I've had the service since it first started and only played maybe 3 times. Never that enjoyable and their pricing model was always obscene given the platform being around for more than a handful of years was always shaky at best.

This is purely a patent buyout so that Sony doesn't have some patent troll buying Onlive and threatening Gakai's work.
