News Comments > More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney

I've been running 10 since launch and Steam is fine in it. In addition to that, Phil Spencer has already said Microsoft has no plans to cripple external game software this way (Hell, he's said that Microsoft's UWP games will also be sold on Steam) and that it would be suicide for their OS strategy to do so.
While I don't see any evidence to indicate Sweeney's "concerns" have any basis in reality, Microsoft saying they aren't going to do it is not a counter-indication. First, if they were doing it they wouldn't admit it. Second, they are guilty of doing it this against other products in the past.

When this game craters, it will be oddly satisfying.
What is your definition of cratering? There is a chance they have enough pre-release sales they will make money even if the game is terrible.

Is there a new level cap or is this just a content expansion?
The cap will go up 10 levels to 110, but not with this release. Basically this is getting the game on the expansion code without releasing the new content. It is a shake out cruise before they open up the new content.

Well... some of the new content is available, like the class changes. But not the new regions...

*ugh* Spent several minutes trying to compose an intelligent post on the situation in Turkey, and now I'm just going to give up. Seems like no win situation for a lot of people to me...

It is RARELY too hot for prime rib. And even when it is, I'd probably be willing to eat it anyway.

It's been decades since I've seen a 7-Eleven, let alone been in one and had a Slurpee. There used to be Southland distribution center in town, but it closed long ago. Truthfully, I wouldn't have been surprised if they had gone bankrupt and I had missed it.

You're thinking nostalgia will carry the day and it simply won't. What you really want is that time in your life back where you could play WoW obsessively until dawn but its gone forever.
Good point. The nostalgia is strong. But I know it can never be what it was. My guild had the first Alliance kill of Nefarian on the server -- heady days. I know it won't be that. Or even the 25 man raids I did later. And most if not all of the people I spent all that time with will be gone. I'm going to think on it some more, but the urge is starting to fade some...

Not quite sure I follow the analogy, so corporate America doesn't care if Microsoft spies on then as long as they have a working OS? Win 7 already works without the spying, right?

Yeah, I was thinking I might want to get up to speed on even the more basic things before the new expansion actually starts. Like this garrison thing I don't know anything about and learning the new herbs, ores, cloths... So, my main chars are 85... how long to level from there to 100? 40 hours? More?

*Points to your router* You know... this thing which isn't subservient to your computer OS and can, OMG, BLOCK whatever it wants no matter what your OS does? Please... stop with the fearmongering. I had numerous problems with win 10, but none to do with its supposedly Orwellian tendencies. Those can be dealt with very easily, it just takes time and a bit of effort.
First, pointing to the router and saying block it there is not addressing the problem. That's treating the symptoms and not the disease. Second, even if people have routers which allow doing this (which some won't), most won't know how to do it. Third, as shihonage explained even if you have the capacity and the know how, it isn't an easy problem to solve at the router. Fourth, finally and most importantly, why should I have to do this?

I wonder if in 20 years we'll be looking back at how much of a hassle it was running SATA cables like we do for those damn ribbon cables.
Hope so, 'cause that will mean someone invented some cool technology.

I've had games on Steam since HL came out and until now I never knew there was such a thing as a "Steam level". I suspect I should be glad.

Yes, the way to end hype is to express disappointment that a video game will not cure cancer.

It's only a matter of time before the Cascadian subduction zone does cause a large tsunami. However, as is almost always the case with things geographic -- we don't know if it will be next week or next millennium.
