Solitaire in Windows 10 is now freemium $1.49 per month.

I wonder if this is why Win10 is free. You pay small fees to "unlock" functionality. "Oh, you want to configure your network? Only $5.99." "I see you would like to use Notepad. On sale today for 99 cents!"

It was that way in Windows 8 too I believe, I remember seeing something about removing ads from it. It's really lame. Of all the ways to make their bones you would think they wouldn't care about the piddly shit like that. That said, the ads only showed between games last time I checked and are easily blocked.

I don't care that they aren't terribly interested in bringing xbone games to win10. You'd all just complain that they're "consolized" anyway, and proceed not to purchase them.

Who is you all? I'd be pretty happy just getting the Forza games. Yeah, that's what Microsoft can do to prove they are committed, bring unique games to the platform. Show that they are invested, like they do with the Xbox. Not Age of Empires Online, the games people give a shit about

The Dead Island games were always kinda hit and miss with me but for some reason this game clicked nicely. Definitely going to pick this up.

Loving Witcher 3 but man sometimes when it crashes it really crashes. I've had it bomb the whole system on 3 different hardware/OS combinations. It's not consistent, sometimes it just CTDs and other times its a hard lock. It's funny because I had no crashes at all before 1.07 but its a huge patch so I guess there was bound to be a few issues.

For anyone upgrading, your old license key from Windows 7/8 is converted into a Windows 10 license. This means the old key is invalidated after that, just something to keep in mind. Also since someone was asking in the previous thread, you can clean install even using the upgrade. Go to the settings and select what to keep->nothing. It also has advanced options so you can preserve whats on other drives but nuke the system drive if you're worried about it.

The console version of Diablo 3 is much more fun, both in terms of features and the controls being more amenable to frequent input with my ancient arms. Never thought I would say that but uh there it is haha.

There is no compelling reason to upgrade unless you like to learn about things first hand. If you're installing onto a fresh machine I wouldn't bother with older versions though. It's just another version of Windows, most of the changes are minor from a user perspective and there aren't any huge performance gains or etc. Likewise there's nothing really wrong with it, some minor launch issues and bugs but nothing like Vista. I think my biggest beef is the Windows Update/Driver implementation which they've already said they will revisit.

Anyways I don't mind it but its nothing to get excited about. It's Windows.

Square Enix is a has been studio. They are still in the twentieth century when it comes to game design.

All of your opinions are bad and wrong.

Cool, but please let me actually DO something in your beautiful, beautiful open city. Like, let me go out into it and just enjoy it freely, rather than having to do it during a mission.

Yep and don't lock those activities behind DLC.

I'm sure I'll play it, and probably enjoy it. But I suspect it won't be on par with NV.

Strangely enough I found the start of new vegas to be really kind of a letdown compared to F3, and the game traditionally doesn't "begin" for me for some reason until I hit Novac.

Of course, when you hit New Vegas proper the game explodes open and becomes teh awesome. Really wish Obsidian was helming this one.

That's kinda where I'm at. I'm going to enjoy it I'm sure, the exploration stuff is always really well done. Really looking forward to this.

It would be nice to get a break from the humidity for a few days. After the winter we had I shouldn't bitch too much but when its this humid even grilling is a chore.

I don't mind updates auto-installing but manufacturers pushing drivers to auto-install is too much. There was no reason to change it from Optional in previous versions of Windows. Undo this idiocy please Microsoft.

This one is less serious but I've emailed a few times over the years to point out that you're passing the account username and password in plaintext (in the URL even) when someone goes to the change password under account details. Anyone can test this themselves, click change password under Account Options while logged in with the cookie set, look at the URL. I know Chatbear is old and creaky but it really shouldn't be done that way for a number of reasons, security and bad design being at the top. I doubt there is an easy fix as it would likely require rewriting a big chunk of the authentication modules but I've never received a response so I wasn't sure if you knew or not.

Ok that surfer video was kind of scary and awesome at the same time. Surfers are kind of insane...

Yeah I've tried it a few times and couldn't get into it. I prefer diving and snorkeling for my ocean funtimes.

It's a great game, very fun and even when you're losing it doesn't tend to get frustrating. Simple to get into with a high skill ceiling. It's one of the few non-Nintendo games that both my girlfriend and I enjoy equally.

Fantastic, already finished the previous games and really enjoyed them. Returns had some rough edges but Dragonfall was the shit, great story and characters.

Cabbies have significant additional costs saddled on them by the city and state/province, that's why they're so angry. It seems pretty reasonable to me. Uber is a really weird company. They treat everyone as subcontractors and I'm not a fan of their lack of transparency on insurance coverage. There are good cabs and shitty cabs but I feel like at least with a regular cab I get some real recourse over a bad situation. With Uber I'm not so sure. Anyways new business model clashes with old, etc etc. Should be interesting to see how it shakes out.
