Avoid like the plague.
Its not THAT bad, but as a Thief game, it is an utter failure. So glad, that Deus Ex HR had a production team with a little bit more brain.

Oh, and I second the idea for 'thumbs up' or stars or whatever for posts. Maybe not a thumbs down, but we definitely need something like that for good posts...
=-Rigs-=

Here we go again. Help me understand why a thumbs 'down' is such a bad thing.....

Picked up Cities: Skylines last night. Has anyone played it? What do you think?

Fantastic and well developed game, and there are a lot of really good mods for it too, and they are easy to install/uninstall.

My first SIM game and I have enjoyed it a lot. If you like SIM games, and EA left a lot to be desired for you with each progressing iteration of theirs, then you should love this game.

i'd like a way to give posts a "thumbs up". i think that thumbs downs are not a good idea....

Out of curiosity, why wouldn't you want thumbs down? Are we playing T-Ball here , or is this Facebook where you can 'only like something?

I know it is a short trailer, but the mechanics and animation looked pretty bad. Graphics aren't everything, but those looked pretty bland as well. Not impressed...... Puke

Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional
SB0886
October 2015

That's the card I'm using and it works fine, but like I had said earlier I wasn't using Creative's drivers before the upgrade.

You should be downloading and installing this: http://danielkawakami.blogspot.com/2015/07/sb-x-fi-series-support-pack-34.html

Waiting for official Creative drivers that will only give you half of the cards functionality anyway is a waste of time.

Thank you. Good to know it is working fine for you, as that is the same exact one I have as well.

I've been thinking of moving back to an X-Fi. My old one died a few months ago. One thing I like is you can force hardware sound for about 95% of the games out there using ALchemy in Win 8.1. Will need to check if *that* still works in Win 10.

Here is a link to Creative's Windows® 10 - Software Availability Chart , which I think is an 'Official' software/driver release out of Beta.

Looks like the ones I need won't be available until October 2015, which is 'about' how long I was planning on waiting to upgrade.

I hope that helps.....

Um. none. I don't have GPS enabled. I don't text. And I don't use apps that allow them to root around my phone and use my data and other personal information. You guys obviously don't care about your privacy but some of us do.

Do you wear a foil hat too?

Ahh, now we see why MS is giving away free copies of Windows 10, it's because you have zero privacy.

Microsoft’s new small print – how your personal data is (ab)used

Think I'll pass on that thanks.

How is this worse than what retail stores do with your purchases? Every time you swipe your card at Target or Starbucks that information is collected, stored, and aggregated with other personal information to create profiles to identify who you are, what you do, where you go, how you spend your money, etc. etc. Windows 10 is just a small piece of a much larger privacy issue. There are companies out there who then take all this data and sell it to politicians or business to help them figure how to market to you.

Agreed. Additionally, do you realize how much data is collected from using your SmartPhone/apps???

Sounds awesome, but this just makes me want to wait for the GOTY edition with everything.

Yeah, same here.

I tried to play Dead Island a few different times, but it never grabbed me enough to finish it and/or even play MP all that much. I think Dying Light will be different.\

Of all the ways to make their bones you would think they wouldn't care about the piddly shit like that.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Then I thought, "Wow, if a minimum of 1 million people buy into it, then that is 1.5 million dollars they just brought in". With Windows 10 being free, that is how they are making up some of the difference I guess......

Rolleyes You gotta love the silly marketing with the content "FREE UPDATE" and "FREE FOR EVERYONE", all of which should have been part of the 'original' vanilla game anyway.

I wonder if they have any lucrative swamp land to sell.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Trailer
43. Re: Fallout 4 Trailer Jul 18, 2015, 14:56 MajorD
 

I'm being cautiously optimistic, and time will certainly tell on how good the game will be. It's sometimes similar to movies; the sequels just aren't as good as the original(s) and have to be taken on their own merit.

From what was 'presented' at E3, one of the things I liked was the fact that 'everything' can/will be have a purpose and be utilized for crafting a myriad of other items, and we won't need a mod (i.e. FWE) to accomplish that.

Realistically and in all fairness, there 'really' isn't enough footage to make judgments on how linear and/or run/gun the game will be. I just hope a 3rd of the game won't be subways.

And for those stating the graphics of a modded Fallout 3 game are the same and/or better than those of Fallout 4, you might want to get your eyes checked. You're comparing a modded PC version of Fallout 3 to a inferior console version/demo of Fallout 4. Could the graphics be better in Fallout 4? Yes, but graphics aren't what make a game great. Being the year 2015, I think we were all expecting more from the graphics side of things, but when those expectations weren't met, most were disappointed and made irrational comparisons.
