Of course Microsoft doesn't see Windows 10 as a privacy risk, selling all your personal information will be a lucrative business. Where's the risk to them?

You can opt out of personal information collection. The article is regarding the anonymized telemetry data that is collected for diagnostic purposes. Stuff like crash reports and shit like that. You can't opt out of that currently and that's what the article is about. The value of such data is relatively worthless but if you want to think they're getting millions of dollars from learning you crashed VLC while watching porn then uh go use Linux. If you want to make paranoid rants about Microsoft and how much they're fucking you, at least be read up on the subject.

The only person I remember being hyped about it was that cutter guy and I'm used him to being incorrect on everything so it was no shock.

If players at a football/basketball/baseball game acted like people on the Internet do, they'd never make it to the locker room after the game. They'd get both legs broken before they made it off the field/court.

If you had ever played a team sport competitively you would understand where the internet gets its inspiration for that behavior.

No one cares about getting your approval, you're confused about the status of who is a troll.

top 50 selling games had Hollywood talent. When they did have that talent in their game (3 CoD titles, Skyrim, and 1 GTA game in the top 50 did) that talent was not advertised as being in game, so it just as easily have been no name voice actors, as far as sales were concerned.

You're really clinging to that list but I'm not interested in it, it has nothing to do with what I said. I doubt you looked at every single advertising campaign in detail for those games to make that determination but that's neither here nor there. The industry uses Hollywood talent for VA and it has a lot more information on metrics for sales than you do with a random wikipedia link. Whether they are right or not is a different matter. It is disingenuous to say that the money could be better spent when we have no idea how project funds have been allocated and staffing levels are already very high.

It's disingenuous to say "it was a stretch goal." Here's the text, "Squadron 42 will feature celebrity voice-acting including at least one favorite from Wing Commander and 50 total missions." He could have just as easily fulfilled that goal with Mark Hamill and maybe some low level TV actors. Oldman, Anderson, Serkis, and Strong is going totally overboard.

I didn't say it was a stretch goal, I said it was promised to backers and something they desired which is true. I'll take Gary Oldman in my video game over some low level TV actor any day by the way. If it bothers you that much then get your pledge refunded, otherwise you're just going to have live with it.

Have a little self-respect, there was nothing reasonable about that situation. Defending yourself from a twice banned troll is perfectly understandable.

How is it with mouse and keyboard? I won't buy a game that demands a pad.

You want to play a JRPG with KB/M? Have fun with that.

It's like Good/Apple encrypting phones and removing apps that collect user info, they aren't doing it so the user can keep their info private, it's so those companies can keep it from potential competitors.

Phone encryption has nothing to do with keeping information from competitors, their competitors get easy access to their customers info through official app APIs. People give that shit away, encryption does nothing.

Guys I can't possibly imagine how they could win here! Either they make the game no one wants or they make Star Wars Battlefield 9! There is nothing at all in between.

I still can't get over the system requirements on the AMD side of things. I fully expect to see either a giant nVidia logo or 'Fuck you, AMD' splash on the loading screen before the menu.

I'm not sure what you makes you say that, the Nvidia requirements are pretty steep too. Maxwell is just really kickass and helps offset it.

It doesn't take a good actor to recognize a bad one either. That applies to everything of quality in life. And just because you and the rest of the masses are easily amused doesn't make it good. In fact it's quite generally the opposite in spite of your believing you and your ilk are cultural sophisticates. Congratulations on being just another one of the multitudes of those guys.

Do you think this sort of insecure posturing impresses anyone? This is something I would expect to hear from an emo high schooler except even they have grown up these days. You're so cultured because you didn't like Back to The Future, congratulations on that life achievement.

"cultural sophisticates" have you ever actually interacted with another human being outside of the internet? You have my sincere pity.

Blame all the people who hated on Battlefield Hardline for that one, if they had made a Star Wars version of Battlefield people would be flipping over tables left and right. They just can't win.

They can win, they can make a decent successor to Battlefront 2.

Requires an Xbox One to update the firmware which is really needed, the base controller has issues without it. I hope the PC driver has the functionality to do that because I'm not seeing any firmware updates on the PC page.

You can say that, but it doesn't make it true.

Nope. I said it because the industry believes its true. A game doesn't have to make all time lists to have its sales enhanced by marketing and celebrity names are marketing. You can argue about the effectiveness all you want but that's what it is and its perfectly understandable. This wouldn't even be a question if it was any other game either. This should be no surprise after the last Wing Commander game and was even promised in the Kickstarter, its something backers desired.

You can't just throw money at more programmers and artists while expecting better results, some of you obviously have no clue how game development works. More bodies is not always better, in fact the opposite is often the case as it becomes more difficult to manage people and hit milestones. Of all the things to get panties in a twist over, the VA budget seems like a pretty bizarre one.

If they run out of money one day then you can send Chris Roberts an I told you so with whatever link you randomly googled to support your "facts" on twitter.

No one bought Advanced Warfare because Kevin Spacey was in it. No one. And no one will buy this game because Gary Oldman is in it.
So the cast of a game is utterly meaningless and developers are just wasting their money on talent? Perhaps you should inform them of that.

Tell me which game you purchased because some famous Hollywood actor was in it.

Marquee names attract more attention which attracts more dollars, this is called marketing. It's not a guaranteed formula but it does work a lot of the time. Big names on a project is marketing. It is that simple and not at all difficult to understand. In fact if this was any other project people would be offering this explanation over and over again instead of just playing dumb and pretending to be shocked that a company might contract a celebrity to showcase their game.

Every movie JJ Abrams has made is better directed than anything Lucas ever did.

Super 8 was pretty forgettable and I'm not a fan of the Star Trek movies. Lucas did some shit but he did some great too. Consider a portal into another dimension and then accidentally open 2 more in rapid succession so you can't return.

If I'm not mistaken some people get their panties in a bunch every time kotaku is mentioned after the whole gamergate debacle sealion show took place. I miss the show. Sea lions are fun.

You're mistaken. Kotakus shitty reputation long preceded that whole event, like by years.
