Yeah Win11 release is a naming gimmick. It's 10 with a bit of a facelift and updates you'd expect from any other Win10 update. So whatever, they can call it poop on a stick for all I care. It's not like they are charging Win10 owners to upgrade to Win11, right? RIGHT?

So, as a computer repair guy, I’m actually glad to see MS isn’t going to try to keep win10 going “forever”. Otherwise, 20 years from now, cheapasses would pull out hardware that was barely capable of running win10 to begin with and demand we make it run better. I had a customer yesterday who was FURIOUS that I couldn’t reinstall Vista on his laptop.

It’s the software version of Intel’s near-constant socket changes. It helps in keeping people from buying incompatible hardware.


Solid point and you can see other ways how this could be played. I'm cool with Windows 2021, Windows 2022 etc. In general I would love to see a shit ton of products use this method.

Watching streams, yeah this game is a stinker. They must of had financial issue and MS should even take some responsibility letting this release on their platform.

It would be at least 6 months and a total dedication to fixing this. So far ZERO from the company who released this.

There are just things happening here that should not happen in a release or in the indiest of indy games and 80% of what I play is coop like Darks, but come on...

I've seen things today, I cannot unsee.

Interesting news this past week on DLSS 2.2's silent release now being used in Seige as it clears up some blurriness when in motion AND that you can copy the new DLL into other DLSS games to get the benifit in those games to. That's cool.

To Darks,

It's been repeated by many now.

It seems the game can be fun, but it needs patches and we'll see what kind of support it gets, the feeling to me is it was rushed out the door, probably for financial reasons, but there is something there worth honing.

A lot of gamers will still try it with gamepass, it won't take long before a proper consensus is made.

I'm about as hands off as I can get when it comes to Windows honestly. I've only ever upgraded to the new iterations when 1) games stop working on the current version, or 2) Microsoft ends support for the version I have, basically forcing me to upgrade.

Windows 7 (probably even XP) was pretty stable and I'd still be using that for years if it was practical.

XP was only ok for it's time, when 7 came out imo we saw how horrendous it was. Prior to 7 the first rule of support was "did you reboot?", win7 made your forget that was the first thing to try because it wasn't needed all that much, but when you found out a reboot fixed the current issue you always kicked yourself mentally in the ass.

What continually bugs me about the Settings app is that it's a single-instance program. There's no way to have the System->Display and the Personalization->Colors screens up at the same time, for example, or System->Sound and Devices->Bluetooth. Let us open multiple windows!

Now that is a legit argument!

What I don't like is the new centered bar, which I don't like, but that isn't my point. The point is you can make a click and change it back to left justified. Why doesn't that get the press since people get in a twist? It's like people are struggling with options. I'm going to simply move it back to the left and life goes on. Like there is a dark mode to, but I'll I see is light. Like you can get of the hideous recommended section and fill it up with tiles that you use. It's like the thing is configurable but too many act like what you get stock is all you get. Same ole shit...

Isn't this basically par for the course when it comes to EA Sports titles on PC?

I can’t speak for FIFA but that’s definitely the case for Madden. They treat the PC like a second class citizen and then wonder why no one buys the game. It’s the same problem that led to the cancellation of the PC title the first time. Why did they even bother bringing it back?


What are their sales numbers these days? I know they were selling 300K when it was cancelled a long time ago. I would think it's at least 500K now, could be quite a bit more I think.

So why do companies suddenly drop from the fast lane to mysteriously begin producing products that their traditional markets are almost sure not to embrace? Microsoft did it with Win7 to Win8/.1, and it's taken them the last five years to produce a more popular OS than what they had with Win7. Then there's CDPR going from building its rep with the Witcher games to dumping a cheap, GTAV clone so buggy many couldn't even play the game, and many others simply didn't like the content even if the bugs weren't a concern. For me, two words sum it all up every time something like this happens: bad management. "If it's working really well then let's change it all around to work even better!" Hah. Crazy--I'm sure that Blues readers could add many more inexplicable situations like this from their own experiences.



It can be talent leaving. What happens if some of the top Frostbite developers leave? Or some good designers/story tellers or really any level that plays a role in a successful product? This is technical art, each persons DNA is put into the product and we all have different DNA, aka if people leave, beyond management things will be different and in this case when you are at the top, the only place to go is down.

Poor guy. Looking back over BioWare's releases, I'd say their last innovative game was Star Wars Knight of the Old Republic. All the games since then have been incremental improvements on the KOTOR formula. Don't get me wrong, there are some high quality games in their catalog and I've played most of them, but all but KOTOR are somewhat forgettable. BioWare's reputation for "quality" is pretty solid but they could stand to work on their "innovation", and I highly doubt that the investors/bean counters are going to allow them to take too many risks. I hope I am wrong because we gamers need something new and exciting.

A has-been company with all the good talent long gone. Couple it with EAs faux woke politics and shitty management and it's a recipe for further disaster.

You guys should go look at their games list. It's very impressive. They release one really shit game (Anthem) and everyone forgets they did amazing games. I'm not sure anyone here has a 100% success rate. Bioware is like 90% even if you remove the shit games.


People will argue against it only being Anthem, I do agree even several of their newer efforts are better than what I read from the audience imo. Anthem even had some things that were really good, even exceptional.

Perfect way to ruin your trailer is to put in some stupid ass music that just ruins the feel and setting. SMH!!!

Yeah for some reason heavy metal doesn't work most of the time with trailers. That said, I can easily look past that. If this game looks like that and has all those moves, that is a major major step up from what they had which was more typical RPG combat. The production values less the music look pretty strong... if real gameplay.
