Solo online mode will still exist. God everyone freaks out about the dumbest bullshit.

Just about every game that will be available on Steam shows up on the coming soon list. It's pretty close to release and there's no sign of it being available on Steam. There is one other Lego game for whatever reason was not released on Steam and is available for PC, the Pirates of the Caribbean game. So there's a precedent.

Why are they giving Steam the finger for this?

It was perfect timing. I decided to fire up Dragon Age Origins since I never beat it and start a new game. But then I couldn't get sign in and get all the DLC. It took some digging at first to find the few message board posts stating there is an issue.

I've actually no idea how good Windows 8 is, since the tile system is so unpopular no one even gets as far as talking about anything else. That's a pretty big fail right there.

Or people are too busy using it to comment but I'll take a moment. The new tile system is far faster to find, launch and organize applications than the old Start Menu.

So much crazy in here. Windows Desktop environment will not go away for a long time. Even Windows RT still has the desktop environment. The new Start Menu is far faster to navigate than the old one, even with a mouse. There is a shit ton of data to back it up.

DADES loves to spread the FUD. You can run the same exact certification tests before you submit the app so you aren't wasting time waiting for feedback. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh694081.aspx

The price for an individual to publish apps to the store (which you do not need to install your own apps) is $50 a year. Big fucking deal. If can't swing the $50 then make it a desktop app and get a real fucking job that gives lets you earn more than $50 a year. Apple is $100 year. Microsoft's 30% cut goes down to 20% once your app hits 25k of revenue, unlike Google or Apple where its 30% indefinitely.

No one wants to deal with that bullshit to get a decent looking OS. As soon as Linux starts copying Windows and MacOS, you know proven desktop interfaces, instead of this fractured scattered crap, it might be marginally successful.

But in the end, it's only a matter of time before Valve just releases some steam box that runs a closed Linux distro, completing the circle of hypocrisy.

No one uses Media Player to watch DVDs is the reasoning. Microsoft has the telemetry to prove it. Never mind the fact that most OEM's have included DVD playback software for years.

That is nice. A gamepad movement which doesnt feel sluggish, crappy and slow. What an achievement to gaming history! We've gone full circle and are now standing at exactly that point ten years ago before devs were forced to make only console games for the dumb masses.

What? There have always been games with horrible controls each generation since the dawn of gaming.

I love how people bother with XP support when its like 10 years old and even MS has stopped supporting it.

Not quite yet but close, April 8th, 2014. No one should be on XP any more unless they have an application that doesn't work on Win7, which is very uncommon in the consumer world.

Unfortunately, he has a shit load of money. Instead of just picking a new goddamn name, because literally no one cares about the old one, he is choosing to waste his new found money in court on lawyers.

To be honest I didn't realise that Steam had a QA, not after a dev version of Dead Island was released to the public. Does anyone know what the Steam QA amounts to and how it compares to Microsoft's game approval process?

From what I understand, Valve doesn't do the QA. The developer uploads their game and tests the download/install through Steam themselves. That's what I read concerning the Dead Island incident.

Metro will not be mandatory.

The Developer preview is for building Metro apps.

Eh, Up All Night is funnier if you have young kids. If you don't have kids or can't remember when you were young, I can see how it'd be terrible.
