Windows 10, the securer os.

I have no doubt it's the most secure Windows OS... But... It's still Windows... : )

I mean... Except against it's own malware... : )

News Comments > Grim Dawn Sells 1M Copies

Glad to see they hit this milestone... And for those that have yet to get it, it's currently at 50% off on Humble Store (12.49 USD).

As a fan of all three recent major ARPGs (D3, PoE, GD), I appreciate what each brings to the table/genre...

And I'm looking forward to the expansion... Which I hope/expect has new content along with the two new classes, and I'm eager to check out each (though also worried they'll be badly balanced initially, making later nerfs/buffs more painful).

I'm 13h in, and still loving it...

As a massive Souls fan (have all + BB), I think it's great another company is making these kinds of games... And I agree with some of Quinn's points, in that, LOTF is a better 'experience' than souls games, in that, it feels like you're playing part in a story... Though LOTF has nothing on Souls replayability... I played through on all three 'classes', using weapons appropriate to that starting design, and it's varied quite a bit, but all three were fun ; )

The Surge continues that... There are 5 types of weapons, and variations within each type, but the advancement system doesn't lock you in, like it does with Souls games (minus those with respec systems). The various types of armor seem to make even less difference, but I guess that's pretty true in this entire genre...

In short, it's a great experience so far... The story is interesting enough, the graphics are great (for this genre), the advancement is good (The implant system is a nice way to add to it, and the trade-off vs energy usage is good), the fighting feels good (and gory, if you like that shit; loved Shadow of Mordor kills myself).

I'll admit it... When I saw, In Steam, that it was available... I considered, for half a second, to buy it just to refund it... I actually tried the demo on PS4 and was pretty disappointed...

And this is one way games are urged towards my, 'will play in a few years when it's $10' list...

Looking forward to The Surge in a few weeks though ; )

Here's a longer one for starters:

Disappointed with how the combat looks, including animations... But I like how the story is portrayed, and Skyrim has proven shitty combat doesn't ruin this kind of game for everyone ; )

Definitely need to see more of the advancement/abilities/etc, but it's on the watch list now at least ; )

Being a pc gamer for the last 30 yrs,i bought a xbox one to try the first one and loved it,but hated using a gamepad with it.

I had the opposite... I've always been VERY pro KB/M for FPS, but it came with my PS4, and it took me a day or two to get used to it, and I actually choose controller over KB/M in some other shooter games... Mouse is still better, but the comfort of the controller is worth it at times.

Too deep into Zelda to bother with this after a very lackluster experience with it on a buddy's EA Access trial. The much better open world in that game makes the flaws stand out that much more. Good luck to those that decide to buy it, let us know what you think.

id love to play the new Zelda.. but I dont buy systems for only one game anymore.. I used to do that but Id always end up regretting it later

I bought it... Played Zelda obsessively for a week... Sold it... For a profit... The selling it part is very unusual for me, but I'm pretty happy how it turned out : )

Demon Hunter Embodiment of the Marauder

Goooood.....Goooood.

I don't like that one as much as the other Multishot build/set, that I can't think of the name of... But the other 5 'free' sets are boring... Probably won't bother with this Season, though I do like a bunch of the QoL improvements.

News Comments > MS Forcing Win10 on Latest CPUs?
13. Re: MS Forcing Win10 on Latest CPUs? Mar 16, 2017, 12:12 Alamar
 
I'm having a hard time getting upset about this...

I fully support peoples choice to stick with an older version of Windows, and this note doesn't imply that that choice can't continue... It's merely MS stating they don't want to keep paying to support combinations that they don't want to.

This does cause a problem with OEMs or Parts sellers that will still happily sell you a new copy of Win7/8 (assuming you can still get those) with a new system.

I realize 7 is old, but it's still the most popular OS

I'm really curious to see a source on this... I couldn't find an up to date chart (wikipedia is a few years old, but the trend looked like 10 would be higher by now, and Steam has 10 at ~49%, 7 at ~37%).

Great, SB already botched one of my beloved classic by making that dogshit Syndicate remake. Now they involved in another of my all time favorite. If only this was time of Riddick's Starbreeze I would be over the moon with the news but now I'm expecting the worst. In fact from what I've read all the talent from former SB went to MachineGames.

System Shock was already a shooter, so it can't go the way of a Syndicate remake ; )
