We are heading into the eventual day when it won't be optional to install programs unless they're from the MS Store.
Trust me, for a lot of people this is the best way to go.

I actually feel bad this go around for them, as T II seemed to fix all the problems from the first one - but it seems to have got lost among all the other releases at the time...
Yea, and the single player campaign was awesome. Totally unexpected.

While housekeeping my family W10 install for creators update I noticed.. it has the same god damn broken windows update "service freezes up, uses 1 core entirely" issue that plagued all other Windows versions... great. Had to actually use wsusoffline to patch Windows 10 ... feel like back in W7 times already

I thought they fixed this issue, but apparently not.

Good news, after doing wsus offline updates to patch up to the creators update, it now actually downloaded everything properly. But it still baffles me that this issue known since XP has not been fixed in W10.. that's just insane.

You may want to consider switching your family members that aren't gamers to Mint Linux. It's similar enough that they can do 99% of the same things without much hassle. About all a non-gamer will lose is potentially Blu-Ray playback(some work, some won't, etc.). There are some games supported natively of course, but nowhere near the selection of Windows. Big plus of course, is no spyware, and no potential for getting locked in to some ridiculous Microsoft decision down the line.

/End anti-Windows 10, Linux sermon.


hmm but I want them to have sound, so no Linux
Seriously, the recent outbreak has shown that you should just put them on Windows 10 Home Auto Update. No, this will not be the year of Linux on the desktop

This is why RTS is a dead genre. It allows too much for skilled players to dominate, sort of like Quake, but what kids-these-days want is like Call of Duty where when you suck and die it notices and spawns you behind someone for an easy kill. Overwatch with its built in "abilities" like auto-aim and other no skill ultimates. Survival shooters where you sneak around looting until you shoot someone in the back and enjoy it because it wasn't you it was happening to.
So true...

It's pretty damn good so far.
Feels like it's a LucasArts classic adventure for sure.
+1
I just finished the 2nd act and so far the pacing is awesome.

One of my favorite games of all time. Must have played through it at least four times. Hope they reboot this and go back to the original survival horror roots.

My problem with this one is the same problem I have with any other coop games. Unless you have some dedicated friends that are available the time you are available to play coop with you, the game is pretty terrible in single player mode.
I am hearing it is a blast in coop mode though.
Played a couple of missions solo and I like it so far. The AI companions dont get in my way and behave pretty OK. I really thought I wouldn't enjoy it that much. Graphics are just OK, though. Framerate on XBone is not consistent, better on a 960gtx on my PC.

Yeah they really flubbed the Store in general. It's the most miserable experience I've had since trying iTunes on Windows a long time ago.
You can select the hard disk before installation and you can move files post-install. Since the major issues have been fixed, I'm good with it.

For me, Witcher 3 spoiled all other RPGs. The quest design was above and beyond anything else. Playing PoE after W3 was a sad affair.

What I expect from game mode: Pause any cpu intense background tasks like defender or windows update. What I don't expect: to magically increase framerates with the same hardware.

I was totally blown away by the single player campaign. I never expected it to be this good. Sadly, the player count online is pretty low on PC.

I am happy with the last decent Macbook Pro from 2013.
The keyboard on the new models is a joke and don't get me started on that touchbar...

Definitely not worth having to deal with the shitty microsoft store, and its stupid rules. Last I checked, can't even move games (Gears 4) to another drive without having to re-download it. And that game alone is 70+ GB.
I checked this: You can move Windows Store Apps to other disks and it now let's you select a disk when installing a game from scratch.

Played a couple of matches yesterday but winning/losing seemed very random. It ran very good on my 960gtx in 2560x1080p ultra wide res, though.

I'm a bit surprised a sequel happened. I picked up Halo Wars for like $7, got a copy for a friend. Had a GREAT time playing it co-op through the campaign.

If the second one gets decent reviews, I'll get it as well. So far I've had no trouble with the win10 versions of games (Forza Horizon 3 and Gears4), except for the weird way MS hides the games and even the data they consume. Had to give my Store games their own drive so I wasn't freaking out over "where did 200 gb go?". Looks like that drive may need to be bumped up in capacity, already packed a 250gb drive.
The first Play Anywhere title I really use is Everspace. I play it on the xbox one at my girlfriend's place and on my PC at home. The store should really let you select the install location for every game, though.

One of the creators studied at my university in germany and made lots of money with this. To be honest, I also never heard of it back then

Shows how far ahead google is in AI research Linking applications is an API thing, but keeping a conversational flow within a question/response, that is AI ^^
No, that's still not AI. We can not create AI with the current computing architecture. That's a fact.

Why is this news? The big three browsers have been pulling this type of stuff for years. Google has been making these type of recommendations for quite a while. If you use a non-chrome based browser with any google service it will nag you to download chrome.
