I'd like something like this if it was done in something gorgeous like the UE4 engine. That's just fugly and nothing I want to bother exploring. And no, I'm not into playing chicks either.

The NFL organization is a bad joke. Their pretense of having some sort of moral code of conduct would be laughable if it wasn't so sad. How many times does Cheaterchick get to cheat and get away with it? How many of the criminals in the league get to be criminals and get away with it? Pay a fine and off you go. That's the message they're sending. Lie, cheat, steal, do drugs, beat your wife, kill people, etc. and it's not only ok, you get rewarded for it.

Don't hold your breath fellas. This is most likely vaporware. I'll believe it when I see it. Today Oxfam published a new report saying by the end of next year, the 88 richest people in the world will own over half the world's total wealth. The gap between rich and poor is growing - mostly on the poor side. Within the next 5 years most people will be worried about keeping a roof over their head and 3 squares a day. Not bullshit toys like this.


Not really a pessimistic person myself, but I don't see anything incorrect about your prediction.

That's pragmatism, not pessimism. That's just reflecting on 30 years of grandiose claims about 'the next big thing!' which virtually never pans out. As others have stated, the control issues for these sorts of things is major. And people are fundamentally lazy creatures. It's way easier - and more practical - to sit at a desk with a mouse and keyboard to work and play games. It's why the Kinect failed. People had no desire to be jumping around like a spaz just to play a game or get something done. This shit always seems cool in the movies, but IRL? Enh, not so much.

Just shows Nutella isn't getting it either.

Google stock? $520
Apple stock? $110
MS stock? $45.

It boggles the mind. It really does. This isn't rocket science. You've got 100 million potential customers for PC games alone. Never mind general office/work stuff. And they still think tying this Xbox scheisse to their OS is the way to go? Boggles the mind.

Cutter you still seem to be having trouble with how the stock market works. The price of the individual share is only half the equation for the total valuation of the company. And even then it's still a very simplistic view. MS stock is $45 but the company has something like 8 billion shares. Google's shares are $520 but they have far fewer shares than MS, the total valuation of the company is actually less. (385bn for MS vs 345bn for Google). Of course Apple still rules the roost with a valuation of 636 billion. It's dat iPhone!

You're the one missing the big picture here. You have to look at what the companies have achieved over time. MS was the major player on the block when Ballmer took over. In 10 short years they blew past them on just about every front imaginable. MS has been failing...constantly. And it's only their OS and office software that's allowed them to remain. If you don't grasp this then I'm sure you think Ballmer and Nadella are just doing super work. Glad you're not my broker.

I wonder how much of that is Gaben and how much it is Valve not wanting to piss off the various levels of government, censor boards, religious groups, etc. I'd tend to believe they do this simply because it's easier than dealing with the static they'd get over uncensored sex games. Everytime something like JJ's nip-slip occurs and mainstream America and the media go into a rabid frenzy about how terrible it is and the sky is falling, the rest of the world just sits there and shakes it collective head in disbelief.

Clearly we need professional developers with a real budget to make a new superhero MMO/CRPG. I applaud their gumption but that looks pretty bad.

even if if this was an unveiling of a killer app with must-have features (spoiler: it wasn't), i still wouldn't be able to get excited because any time phil spencer is on screen all i can think about is how many different ways i want to cave his giant head in.

that fucking smirk he's always wearing, and those beady little eyes. it's like his job is a joke that he's the only one "in" on. and really he has utter contempt for everything that's seething from his mouth. like he secretly knows how much damage is being done to the medium of gaming everytime he says the word "xbox". he leads with an out-puffed chest like some half-retarded prize fighter who's vegas odds are dropping every-time he curls his lips into another smirk.

really this guy is the smirk king, i rarely get to use the work smirk, but that's all this guy does. he smirks. he's a smirker. i want to cave his fucking skull in.

Yeah, but how do you really feel?

That you offset your sedentary lifestyle by working out intelligently, Stephen. You can work harder, or you can work smarter. It's not rocket surgery.

Actually most qualified trainers I know aren't fans of those rowing machines, lots more potential for twisting and hyperextension injuries compared to the real thing. Rowing for 30 minutes in the evening doesn't make up for 8 hours of sitting on your ass in the office either. Sedentary lifestyles need adjustment, not exercise plans bolted on. Hence standing desks, micro-breaks, etc.

Then they're not really qualified trainers because the science on rowing has been well known for years. And yes, that exercise - as opposed to none - does make a difference. Hell, we sleep for 8 hours, is that bad too? Fact is even deskjob people do get up and move around and take micro breaks all day. Standing around for 8 hours isn't going to be anything than marginally better than sitting around as far as burning calories go, and it's going to be a lot harder on the joints in the long run. Consider how we evolved and there's a lot of sitting and squatting and laying down involved in our day to day lives too. We didn't evolve running marathons on treadmills all day long. Apply a little common sense to these sorts of issues.

Either way, the civilized, polite response would probably have gone something like...

"Not a game I'd play, but good luck! I hope you guys are successful." -Cutter

...but a snarky response about a PC port is cool, too. In fact, I don't even understand the point of your original comment? Are you upset that developers port their games to PC? That they don't release primarily on PC first?

If that's the sort of professionalism people can expect from you they'd best take their money elsewhere. Where the hell did you learn customer service? Protip: Regardless of your personal feelings on other people's take on your product just shut up about it because you're going to lose if you choose to jump into an argument with them. This is why you don't see actual, real professionals arguing and insulting people in public. Clearly you're not ready for this sort of responsibility.

This helps a discussion about the dangers of working at a desk how?

Free upgrade means you can upgrade to 10 for a year and it will cost money after or does it mean after the 1 year up you have to pay in order to keep using 10?

Also Microsoft mentioning Windows 10 as a service somehow doesn't give me all the warm and fuzzy feeling about the future of the OS.

Yeah. As the kids say, I'm not down with that. Everyone and his dog wants to get his hand in your pocket every month. I'm sick to death of "services" when all I want is a complete product. Fuck that noise. If that's the kind of party MS wants to have I'm going to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes.
