Gamepads existed since the inception of a PC!


Confused Sure they did, kid. At the "inception of a PC", you were damn lucky if you had keyboard support, real keyboard support, and not just membrane input.

There's 20 years of separation between the "inception of a PC" and when gamepads were even remotely available to the mass market.

Let me guess, you also think that the NES is "old school".

Because the devs need to eat?

Then make something worth buying instead of rehashing something already released for free.

If I can use Flashget to pull the game off a site hosting it for free, and still get the same game, why would I want to pay for it?

Where exactly do you see performance gains over 7? While I was using 8.0 it seemed a lot more sluggish compared to 7

8.1 boot time to usable desktop from cold power on = 5.4 seconds
7 boot time to useable desktop from cold power on = 12 seconds

Large network transfers of ~40GB or more were faster by minutes on 8 compared to 7.

While we didn't measure it, load times on programs and games seemed faster on 8.1 than 7.

A coworker and I have the exact same setup:
Shuttle SZ87R6
Intel Core i7 4770-K (mild overclock to 4Ghz)
32GB Crucial Ballistix
Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD
780 GTX
Both Realtek 1Gb adapters teamed.

He installed 7 Pro 64 bit on his, and I 8.1 Pro 64bit on mine. Then we started mucking around side by side.

Don't get me wrong, I am not making the value judgement that 8 is better. It's just faster

<dons riot gear>

On my newest build, Win8.1 significantly outperforms Win7 (both 64 bit installs). While the UI isn't my cup of tea, exactly, it's serviceable enough as I mostly use the desktop. For me, the performance gains were worth the change over.

I'm hoping Win9 cleans up the UI significantly. If that happens, I think 9 will have the same welcome and adoption that 7 has enjoyed.

I'm pretty sure this wouldn't be a copyright issue, it's technology and therefore patents and trade secrets.

I was speaking in general and the first thing that came to mind was the copyright system. However, you're correct and I've amended it to address all three.

We live in a world where Zenimax/Bethesda owns Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein, Fallout, and are claiming they own the work John Carmack has done while working on VR tech for Facebook.

Obvious News Headline:
Major corporations expand their product portfolio by buying out smaller companies. They also aggressively protect their IP because of/due to the broken US Copyright/Patent/Trademark systems.

I seriously donít know what you are referring to when you make that statement, because ESO feels a lot like Skyrim in many ways.

With the several betas I tried I can say it didn't feel anything like a proper TES game. It felt like an old MMO reskinned to be based on TES and failing.


It's nothing like Skyrim outside of sharing a very loose connection with the lore. Skyrim was an amazing game that has earned its rightful place in gaming legend. ESO will crash and burn as yet another failed MMO.

That's pretty impressive.

However, something sticks out to me. In DE:HR, pretty much everywhere had these rackmount systems under desks, in bedroom closets, in apartments, etc. In the future, especially in offices, why would you invest that much in hardware when a VDI would work perfectly well for a receptionist or secretary?

What did you have before Bungie existed that you no longer had after they announced that Halo would be an Xbox game, or that Halo 2 would be a Vista exclusive, or that Destiny wasn't coming to the PC on September 9?

You could argue that there were games like Myth, Oni, Durandel and the like that have been completely and utterly forgotten about in order to worship at the Halo altar.

Think about this, the people who largely created the core Halo fiction have abandoned the company. The guy who created the music that was a large part of the experience of Halo was recently fired without so much as a "thanks for all the fish!" The essence of the universe, what made it compelling for a console title, is gone. You can have Full Sail graduate artists and code monkeys build a shell all day long but a golem is useless without life.

Normally when we see this behavior in a studio, that studio lingers on for a title or two longer before imploding, usually in lawsuits and internet catfighting. The IP gets recycled over to some third tier studio full of college interns and dragged through the mud for a few more cash-ins before being abandoned wholly.

I believe Destiny will initially sell well but I don't think it'll be a long term revenue generator, not in the way that Bungie and Activision are expecting. I think in ten years, Destiny will be regarded as Bungie's swan song.

The problem with the Xbox One is that there isn't a "killer" game for it yet, and it may be that there never is.

My dad, who is the ultimate MS fan boy, rarely turns his on and his most common complaint is "The launch titles were underwhelming and I have nothing to play on it that is significantly better than then the whole library of titles I have for the 360."
