lol @ "large gains"

I've seen a lot of reports from users where the game produces less fps in DX12 than 11.

Seems like more patches are in order...
Yes, it's the same here with Ashes of the Singularity, the DX11 version runs way better on my 960GTX since Nvidia fucked it up on the hardware side with DX12 in this generation.

Thank god someone here mentioned the term "bullet sponge". Somehow I didn't realize that this game is more like an MMORPG. Then someone on Steam Reviews mentioned it was basically Destiny. Saved me good money.

Ah, I'm eager to try out the Ashes of the Singularity performance with these drivers. DX12 is pretty much useless with current nvidia hardware , right?

Here, let me fix the title so it reads correctly.

Gears of War: Ultimate Fuck you to Windows 7 Users Edition Released for Windows 10

There, now it's fixed.

So, let me get this straight, they can add DirectX 12 to a game that's 10 years old. But they can't make Windows 7 DirectX 12 compatible? Yea, right Microsoft!!
It's their IP, they can do whatever they want. Same goes for Sony and any PS exclusive.

Is Germany finally unclenching about violence in video games or something?


It is rather puzzling, after their history with games...


I remember that I was very surprised when they didn't ban Gears of War 2 in 2008. At that point, things seemed to change.

i was stoked about this until i found out it was windows store only. unfortunately being a windows store app means:

no fullscreen exclusive
no vsync options, vsync always on
no sli/crossfire support
can't launch it from the exe, so no steam overlay support
no mods or sweetfx

comparing it to GFWL isn't hyperbole, windows 10 store is honestly worse.

What are you talking about? I think the exe has similar DRM to steam. Got some proof? I found this: https://goo.gl/TrflTZ
Nvidia Inspector for Rise of the Tomb Raider seems to have the same problem on Win Store and Steam but can be fixed if you read through this thread.

This might single-handedly turn the fail that is SteamOS into a real Windows killer for games. Thoughts?

Had one CTD and one hard freeze yesterday on my brand new Zotac Steam machine (Win10). Seems to be a problem of the game, though. Other games ran just fine.

MS needs to learn from their arrogance and chow down on some humble pie. They try and dictate what the consumer wants and consumers give them the finger. And now they're wondering why no one is going to Spydows 10.
They did learn. Satya is busy cleaning up Balmer's mess. Either way, both next gen consoles are pretty lame, thinking about getting a gaming PC again after 8 years...

Finished this on the XONE a couple of weeks ago. It never gets dull but I thought that the challenge tombs were a missed opportunity (again!). I was under the impression that this time they'd be a little more, well, challenging...

As word gets out that it's nothing buy spyware you'll probably see a lot of that happening.

With that logic, people will be going from Android and iOS back to dumbphones.


Exactly. Most people don't give two shits, or more accurately are too dumb or uninformed to even know about the phone home shit. When their Windows box turns into a bloated garbage dump 12-18 months from now, they will be cursing their 'slow' PCs and hurrying to upgrade to the next best thing....

Well deserved, Sony. Personally, I have an Xbox One for the single reason that I don't want to create a Sony account. Both consoles suck from a hardware perspective, but Sony does indeed suck less.
Anyway, Microsoft fucked it up with this console generation and now they have to pick up the pieces.
I don't agree with the general Microsoft hate anymore, though. As a .NET developer, I love what they are doing at the moment. And if I had to pick one company from Apple, Google & Microsoft, it would be MS.

I liked this game. Until the last boss. Splatted 10 times. Funny thing...the Witcher came out and then Elite upgraded. Haven't been back since, though I'd like to.
