Ehh, win10 is a surprisingly smooth upgrade, except maybe for whoever that was with the dog face avatar's girlfriend whose machine updated and goofed up...I've bumped 4 machines up to win10, the WORST issue I had was it seeing two 970s in SLI as a single 8gh video card, which caused some weird ass video issues. Removed one, reloaded the drivers, put the second card back in and bam, off and running like a champ. I have since removed the second card to power the VR rig, but all in all, quite smooth.

Now, it's probably a different story when it comes to laptops with a ton of integrated devices, some of which may not have sent drivers to Microsoft early enough to get them into the initial installation build, which is honestly the hardware vendor's fault. That'll change over time as install builds get updated.

As someone ELSE in the comments yesterday stated, people on this board whine about every single new Windows release. Microsoft claims win10 is the last named Windows release, but IF they ever make a newer one, I guarantee the exact same people will be crying about MS trying to get them to give up their precious, infallable Windows 10.

you clearly don't get it

There are only two solutions to online harassment:

1) Ignore it.
2) Only hang out in safe space bubbles where unified ideology prevents the conflict that leads to harassment.

There is no technical or legal solution that will protect anyone.

As an aside, I have zero sympathy for "harassment victims" who are only getting harassed because they spend 20 hours a day on Twitter actively calling out and antagonizing people. You know who isn't getting harassed? People who don't talk shit on social media.

I do not have a social media presence. I have no Facebook, and I have no Twitter. I do not have a blog where I put my shitty opinions on a pedestal. And my life is better for it. I don't miss out on anything of value.

If it removes crapware, will it uninstall Win 10 as well?
Sigh

Before doing all that sighing, you may want to research the EULA you agreed to when installing Windows 10. Hint: it lets Microsoft take your files for any reason at any time.

You may also want to research whether unticking all those boxes which let it spy on you, actually did anything.

Hint: it did not. And third-party utilities don't do the job, either.

http://bgr.com/2016/02/10/windows-10-spying-investigation/

In addition, Win10 has been known to uninstall third-party drivers and software without user consent, as well as revert user-changed settings by itself.

It is the OS that won't let you disable Windows Update. And at this point I wouldn't put it past them to run hidden processes to that effect, should you neuter its service.

With Windows 10, you're no longer any resemblance of "admin". You're just another peripheral.

That OS is the beginning of Microsoft's end. No amount of DX12 and other kind of planned obsolescence is going to force me to ever use it.

When Win8.1 stops being supported, I will actually go to Linux. Good thing I don't play modern games.

You guys are not good at history.

We're constantly accepting things that are slightly shittier, because it's not so bad, or because most people don't care. Now we have to pay 15$ for a DLC containing a new multiplayer map. Back then, maps were free and you had deep mod tools to make your own. That's ONE example.

Anyway that's why I'm done with crowdfunding. They had their chance. They all fucked it up in one way or another and now I just don't give a crap anymore. And let's face it... PoE and WL2 while "decent" have stayed FAR below fan expectations so if crowdfunding dies entirely it wouldn't be a huge loss.

And here we have the gist of it. You are done with crowdfunding. That does not mean that crowdfunding hasn't happily continued and won't in the future. I also want to know what publisher would have even given those games a chance to be made. Because according to everything we know, no one wanted to.

So I'll take a game that was never going to be made in the first place which is missing a couple features over never seeing another of its type again because those same publishers keep shitting all over the very suggestion of funding those types of games at all.

Also, those same companies which you claimed disappointed the fans (all of which you speak for, I'm sure) still had successful crowdfunding campaigns after. So I'm scratching my head as to where exactly, are these hoards of fans who were so put out by the 'false' promises of these kickstarter developers that they too, would never touch crowdfunding again.

(all of which you speak for, I'm sure)

That sunnyboy goes both ways ...mkay i am pretty sure ya speaks for all Clown

The good thing about game announcements with Windows 10 is that I can easily tell which game I will never buy ;p

While I do have Windows 10 (but I use W7) I will never support this exclusivity nonsense that has marketing and not technical reason.

So...you have this sniffing tool installed and yet : I will never support this exclusivity nonsense that has marketing and not technical reason.

Seems like there are a lot of VR games coming out...how many people actually have VR units?

VR is seriously getting out of hand. I personally will not put some stupid VR device on my head and years from now wonder why my eyes are all fucked up like in the movie the Jerk.

And that looks lame as shit, floating weapons? Give me a fucking break!!

Yep, here we go, more people bitching about something they don't understand. The "floating guns" thing is becoming standard because unless people want to strap MORE shit to their arms, the game can't always properly guess your arm location, and IF IT IS WRONG, you will flip the fuck out as your brain tries to figure out why your arms are broken. Also, when you're playing, you DON'T NOTICE the guns are floating.

You and Cutter and everyone else on here who hates technology that's beyond what they can comprehend won't believe me, but whatever. Until you play around with it, you CANNOT understand why it's so incredible. You think that it's just a monitor on your face, and 3D, and so you think that sounds pretty lame and have written it off.

YES, it's true that most VR titles out right now are glorified tech demos. This is literally like having to start all over on game design. They're still working out First Person locomotion, as teleporting doesn't feel right and "sliding along" makes people sick. If someone is given enough visual cues, you can put them on a moving platform, but that again limits what kinds of games that can be done.

But then there are the things that we can do in VR that you CANNOT do on a monitor. You can have swordfights where you actually have to maneuver your sword around their armor, then go explore a dungeon where you may need to physically crouch to get under a swinging blade (Vanishing Realms). There's a bizarre gun fetishist game where reloading actually makes you eject your clip and physically insert a new one...and it doesn't approximate. You need to ACTUALLY get the clip into the gun, not just get it neat the socket (Hotdogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades). Shooting gallery games make a lot of sense in VR, so you'll see there are a lot of them popping up.

Also, VR is where "walking simulators" can thrive, as just being in a new environment is thrilling in VR. Sure, you can't slide along without being sick, but teleporting doesn't feel "cheap" in exploration games. You simply point to where you want to look around, click and you're there. If there's no combat, it simply takes the wasted time of moving over there out of it.

Ripping on VR without having tried it makes you just sound bitter. You will compare it to failed technology, because you can't understand why it's so much better than what you have. You're the horse rider, telling everyone the automobile is crap.

Lots of nothing ...the weapons are STILL floating 3D -VR = pushing shit out for tha money and SOME i see jumps right in defending there purchase ... Book

Was really impressive till he got in the shower. You hear his metal feet clunk on the floor as he moves around, camera shows a long shot... he turns around and wipes off the glass with his metal hand like it has skin and makes a skin noise instead of metal across the glass. Maybe I'm nitpicking but it was really solid building atmosphere and then it fucked it up.
Synthetic Skin, i.e. transparent skin which can be injected with any color, will be around long before most, if not all these other enhancements. Doubt they could use real lab grown skin, over metal (actually he's probably got some graphite composite) , for quite awhile.

It's just annoying to hear a metal hand to what a normal hand or hand with some sorta rubbery substitute would do, not to mention it should leave lines from just the contact points. I know it's nitpicking but it's annoying as fuck.

I know it's nitpicking but it's annoying as fuck.
