I liked the Dead Space series, but if EA/Motive are going to remake Dead Space (by borrowing gameplay from another franchise, in true creatively-bankrupt AAA gaming industry style), I'm not really interested.

I know you should update as quickly as possible for security reasons, but I've seen far too many stories of data or apps permanently going missing after a windows update, or other mysterious things breaking, and MS seems to just shrug and say they'll fix it when they can, and/or just roll back to the previous version, as if that always fixes whatever they broke (it doesn't). Personally, I know Windows 10 has just outright deleted a few of my apps without asking me. That was way back when it first came out, and I haven't seen it since then, but it always makes me nervous.Solemn-Philosopher wrote on Jun 24, 2021, 12:06:
The live stream was lacking info and overflowing in sentiment. I feel like I should invite Windows 11 to my next family picnic.
That's the new Microsoft, they're constantly trying to channel Apple in their media outreach.
Windows update being substantially sped up is welcome, it's been dragging ass for too long. They still need to do better QA on the updates themselves. The new Xbox app is a huge step up from the dire shit we had before, though I am still not a huge fan when compared to Steam. A new store was a no-brainer, that shit was a damned wasteland of IP theft and garbage ware. Microsoft really needs to curate it this go around. I only farted around with the leak in a VM but the performance and UI changes were on point. Anyways I'll check out the final version with an open mind as always.

Gamers Nexus called it a turd at only 8% faster on average than a 3080.
Venturebeat said the 3080 Ti was 17% faster than the 3080.
Who to trust.

Granted it's essentially power creep, with a little bit of QoL, dressed up as a new feature/update to followers, however the game is going on 9 years old and I'm fine with it. As usual, it's great to play with friends / clan members.
I guess I was one of the weirdos that liked all 3 Diablos so far.

Can we at least all agree that Lower Decks is terrible?

I wonder if they'll add this to The Dark Descent given how many of these older games are getting remasters now.
