UFC is so much better like this!

Haha yeah, I can't say I care for UFC so thats an improvement in my mind.
I care not for UFC and most sports (e.g., soccer) too.

Good for Braben.
I'd hate to see an Elite Dangerous game that was aimed at the 13-18 years old CoD crowd.
Yeah, he was a cool guy when I talked to him in person at E3 2014.

And happy anniversary QUAKE. Just two years until it's 20th. Wow!
You dont make us look any younger, Blue. I remember playing Quake in makeshift LAN parties like it was yesterday. I strongly believe i havent aged since then.
I remember downloading and playing qtest86(?) in my college's computer lab with no sound!

Yea, if I remember correctly - qtest was just 1 level? Single player? We had a LAN party and used null modem cables (can't remember if we had invested in a hub and NICs) and got a 4 payer game of deathmatch going with line commands. It was pretty awesome.
One level and multiplayer only. IIRC, it was Mac OS X, Linux, and then Windows for testings.

Ew, no! RA1 and RA2 were better for Red Alert series. I wasn't a fan of RA3 (played its beta with my old gamer buddy, Grungy -- RIP as a few years ago).

Wonderful poster.

I've never understood Microsoft's disdain for PC gaming. Okay, they have their XBox line of game-consoles, and they want to push that. I totally get that part; Microsoft wants some exclusives for the XBox so that people will chose that platform. But there are a lot of games that just do not work well on consoles (sims, adventure and strategy games, for example) but are a perfect fit for the PC. Yet Microsoft seems to be actively working to sabotage gaming of all sorts on the PC, from killing the MS Flight Sim series, closing Ensemble, and locking games to particular versions of Windows for no reason except marketing. I mean, it's not as if Microsoft has to worry about limited resources; they could have easily supported both platforms.

Windows is still the heart of Microsoft's empire (despite all the money poured into it,it certainly isn't the XBox division, which continues to lose money), and PC gaming was one reason people stuck with Windows; their games didn't run well on the alternatives. Nowadays, Macintosh, Linux and mobile devices are increasing their marketshare, and the PC is only something you use when you have to do work. I don't think it is a coincidence that Microsoft's domination of the desktop began to slip when they made it clear that gaming on the PC was no longer a priority.

So maybe I'm biased but I just don't understand the strategy. They deliberately slaughtered their golden goose - Windows, with 99% control of the home PC market and low cost-of-entry - to chase after the game console market, where they at best would have 50% control and might make a profit after five years.

I thought MS wanted domination in gaming no matter what platforms. Now, that is going awway to Linux and others.

I was wondering why you haven't said anything about Elite.
New update coming out on the 24th next Tuesday, new systems a new cargo ship and new station type.
All the details in the newsletter
Also you can take 4k screenshots even if your screen rez is set to 1080p.
Those 4k screenies look awesome in the newsletter.
Hey, submit those to Blue! He needs to post them. I was impressed with the game and team at E3 2014.

Haven't wanted to play a Far Cry game since the first (and imo the best one).

Definitely don't want to start again with FC 4...

I don't think I finished FC1, but I put in a good 20 hours. It was pretty fun. I've tried to play FC2, twice and can't get past the first half hour. Promised myself I wouldn't pick up FC3 until I played most of FC2...
I finished FC1, but hated its last few levels. I never bothered with FC2 even though I got it for free. I just gave both discs to a co(worker/lleague) who only played the FC1 demo even though it has tons of replayabilities. Geez, get the full game so I gave him mine since I will never play again. Also, my FC2.

14. E3 should go to different city each year. Jun 22, 2014, 02:23 Ant
 
Blue, you should have moved to L.A.

At least I FINALLY went to E3 (2014) finally this in my life! It was fun even though I don't game much these days. I hope to go again even if it is a few hours long per visit. I kicked myself not doing it a decade ago since I could easily gotten a badge. DOH! Does anyone have a time machine? How about a t(ele/rans)porter?

Trying not to think about how many foolish purchases I've made so far. Wow, look at the great deal on something I'll never play...

Didn't get any of the big stuff, but a ridiculous number of cheap games found their way into my steam library. Somehow was able to avoid buying all of them, but it wasn't easy...

Good luck to everyone else!
That is why I stopped buying games. I still need to resume and finish my old bought games (Crysis 1, C&C3:KW, World in Conflict, Oblivion, etc.). Even the free ones (Skyrim, Borderland, etc.) I got recently.
