That MS news is pretty interesting.. last stand alone Windows OS release.. so I guess Windows 10 update is not exactly optional either. Fine by me considering the price seems fair (for once).

It's not the last stand alone OS, they're just not going to stamp version numbers to the end. Might as well just call it Windows X.

Instead of releasing an entirely new and different version of its desktop OS every few years, Microsoft is taking an Apple-like approach to subsequent Windows releases, standardizing on Windows 10 as its Cupertino-based rival has done with OS X. Under this new strategy, Microsoft will deliver regular improvements to Windows through software updates.

News Comments > Visceral's Han Solo Game?

I would have it take place prior to A New Hope, I always thought the books that were written by Brian Daley would have made great settings for movies to be made of, I suppose the lack of Storm Troopers would put off most though since they take place in the "corporate sector authority".

Sounds like they'll make it 3rd person if they're going to emulate the Batman games.

Have you ever played Battlefront? "Missions" are basically the only game mode. The only difference with "co-op" would be... one or two less bots.

bots will be available both on and offline

we'll see, they haven't detailed any of the game modes but it sounds like the bots will be specific to the co-op mode and not the 20v20 competitive mode.

I'm more interested in knowing if we're getting bots in the game. My PC doesn't have a Dolby Atmos setup.

No heavily-multiplayer games these days feature or at least depend on bots. Look at how Battlefield games dropped bots completely. We're in the day and age of fast, always-on Internet access. Multiplayer is the key. My only gripe is the proposed 40 player limit.


Bots will be available.



*for "Missions" which are the co-op portion of the game.

How about if your neck or eyes start to hurt you just stop using it? Maybe each Oculus should include a government monitor to make sure that it's being used properly, or just add on a $150 neck damage tax in case of future problems.

I don't think a $150 idiot tax would cut it. The youtube videos of people walking into walls or tripping over their kid/dog while trying to walk around with it on should be entertaining though.

I can definitely see eye strain being an issue but honestly when I got to demo this at a convention it surprised the hell out of me just how light it actually was. Unless someone is prone to neck injuries I don't see weight being an issue for many continuous hours of use.

If people can develop neck problems from texting then I'm sure this will cause problems for some people.

Head tracking isn't nearly as important to me as full-immersion 3D. I don't understand how anybody playing games can't understand how immeasurably better they would all be in 3D. I remember being impressed by the fucking VIRTUAL BOY, and modern tech is infinitely superior.

Full immersion 3D comes at a price though, eye fatigue/strain probably being highest on the list. I'm sure that wearing this thing isn't light either so you might add neck and shoulder pain to the list too.

There's no such thing as "moderation" for most people playing games, how many times have you sat down at a game and then realized you had been playing for many hours past what you had originally planed?

Bummer. Thought this would be coming out this summer.

They probably could but it needs to have a robust lineup of software that uses it, it'll be interesting to watch how this unfolds but from a comfort standpoint I just can't see wearing this for extended hours.

We've had high quality head tracking for a really long time now and it is just a niche device to be used mostly in simulators. This just adds the parallax 3d to the experience for the most part and seems more cumbersome.

Chris Pratt was photshoped as Indiana Jones and while it looked good I don't think he can fill Harrison Fords shoes. They should have gone all Laura Croft and had him have a daughter.

News Comments > New NFS This Fall; No Mirror's Edge & Titanfall Sequels Before 2016

I think they'll have more space combat in the DLC, you know they'll have a death star trench run in the game.

The game is going to be on rails though so people are expecting too much from DICE (oh look the guys who made Battlefield are making a Star Wars game!) it's just not going to have that kind of freedom or scale.

Small maps, two man fire-teams, 20v20 with match making, lots of scripted events and non-player controlled vehicles.

I know that there are a lot of Battlefront fans that are put off by what DICE has announced so far. Personally I like the fact that they're not going to have prequel clone war content in the game, I'm not that thrilled about the lack of a server browser though (the game won't use Battlelog on the PC) so it's just Call of Duty style match making - at least it'll be using instanced servers I assume.

The lack of space combat sort of sucks but it's not going to be Xwing vs Tie fighter anyway.

What era would they put this in? Late 60's? Maybe they could have him raiding tombs in Vietnam and have the war as the backdrop.

Even though DICE have gone and fucked up Battlefront it'll still sell like hot cakes because it's Star Wars.

I'm surprised they would mention Hardline in a positive light, I guess it did okay on PS4 and Xbox One.

Still don't think it's a good idea to strap a gigabit Ethernet adapter to your head all day, and for little kids to do this because of minecraft would be even more worrisome.
