FIFA16 was still using their console engine, Ignite.

Hopefully this move to Frostbite means that they will be converting Madden/NHL over to it and then maybe we'll get a PC release of those for the first time in 10 years.

Or maybe they'll just continue to suck.

Where do they find the child actors for this show? They are usually cringe-worthy roles at best in TV shows, but every child actor in GoT is an absolutely incredible performer.

I could watch Ian McShane deliver monologues all goddamn day... and he was totally shown up in "his episode" by a 10 year old girl.

Sorry, a 10 year old BEAR BEAST WOMAN who is not to be trifled with. :p

Just another half baked idea that was a good attempt but not enough to unseat the incumbent go-to option.

Well, they weren't trying to replace xbox controllers with the steampad, the steampad is for playing FPS and other mouse driven games on your couch. It completely embarasses an xbox controller at that.

The only thing half-baked here is what people think Valve was actually doing with these products.

Valve has released zero steam machines.

Steam machines were one of the few things that could bridge the console-PC gap and cause developers to stop being assholes. Perspective.

The hardware survey pops up and asks you to accept it every single time they want to collect info from your machine.

EDIT: As far as weighting statistics go... I'm guessing that their analytics suite for developers is a bit more advanced than anyone here is going to come up with. You are right, it would be damn foolish to count all machines as equal. I don't agree that more hours should give more weight though. If you play 1 game for 15000 hours, and someone else plays 15 games for a normal amount of hours... I'd rather cater to the person making me more money.

Uh, you have to fill out and submit the steam hardware survey. It doesn't just collect that data from idle machines and it isn't spying on anyone.

How do you guys ever possibly stock enough tinfoil in your homes?

Don't blame MS for things your hardware manufacturers were responsible for fixing. W10 was released 9 months ago and you think it's MS's fault that some drivers still haven't been updated? Crazy

Dacron's take on W10 was spot on. You can pretty easily tell who has actually used the OS and who has just read about it on the internet or gave it 5 minutes and jumped on the hate-wagon.

edit: And the willingness of people to trust random 3rd party apps never ceases to amaze me.

I don't really care what time period they pick... I just want that style of SW RPG again. Something set around the training of Yoda would be pretty cool.

I find the older lore to be considerably more interesting, but probably only because it was actually there to play and immerse myself in. Using the movie time periods and characters does limit the scope of what can be done story-wise, because you need to conform to certain outcomes. There is never going to be a plot twist where a character dies that you know lives through to the next movie. That's one of the most primal reasons why the prequel movies didn't work. I think KOTOR/2's storyline worked well because they went back so far. None of the characters were bound by plot-constricting invulnerability, so spoiler spoiler spoiler... the twist and ending of KOTOR2 was even possible. You couldn't really pull that off with the modern characters aside from the one you were directly controlling (so that they would "win the game").

A front loading washer will definitely not be faster than a top loader, at least in my experience... I don't have to much exposure to them, my old place had some fancy new Samsung ones. They worked awesome, just slow. Definitely saves water though. The "mold" thing is really easily avoided by not leaving the door closed.

But the things Microsoft are doing to trick or force people to upgrade are just wrong.

No doubt, it's almost as if they are purposely trying to sabotage their own company's reputation (yes, i can taste the irony).

They have basically done everything wrong with the launch and forced upgrading (which, TBH... I bet 90% of these are user error) aspect that they possibly could have.

I was watching "The Departed" last night and the GF calls a croissant a "french donut".

I wanted to punch Boston in the face.

I understand most complaints about W10.
so finding any given setting is always a guessing game
Except that one. Start button, type, click. Opens every time, no guessing. There is no reason to be looking through CP for things anymore.

Win7 doesn't require modifying a bunch of settings and constant vigilance to keep MS from invading your privacy.
Except it does.

Too much anecdotal nonsense is being widely accepted as fact regarding W10.

I know... Or at least i hoped.

Make sure you try flipping between the different emulation modes on the right pad (joystick-mouse is very different from joystick-move). Joystick-Mouse with trackball mode on and low-medium friction is the best way IMO. These should only be used if you can't have mouse and gamepad inputs at the same time.

If the game you are playing properly supports simultaneous mouse and gamepad input then you can just set the right pad directly to mouse and skip the right stick emulation entirely. You can mix-match input styles on any well programmed game.

If and when the origin ecosystem ever improves I'm loving the pile of free games my account is amassing... bring me some goddamn Madden/NHL games on PC and i'll even give them money! Eh? How about that?

For me, the touchpad was not able to replace the left analog stick.

Did the left analog stick not do a good enough of a job being a left analog stick for you? Crazy

That is certainly a little odd. I would imagine that almost all of them are direct sales through Steam... either purchased as a bundle with Rocket League last fall or with DS3 this Spring.

The controller literally continues to get better every week. The activators opened up a huge variety of options for setting up more complex actions. I had Overwatch running through the Steam overlay and was playing that last night on the TV. Some characters really don't require much aiming at all

I think you did a great job of highlighting exactly why balancing is hard, and also why MMO's are a waste of time.
