These probably are the PC versions just released to consoles, maybe with some tweaked textures.

People falling all over themselves to praise "clock boy" for "making a clock" was the most pathetic form of pandering I've yet to see.

STFU "clock boy"

Jay gives us a tour of the Shotwell, designed by 17-year old Bob Shotwell in 1931 who once took it on a 150,000-mile road trip.

Now that guy was a prodigy genius.

It's very pretty, Bishop, but what are we looking for?

I don't think this blows up in anyone's faces. Given how small the team that made this was, they'll make their money back easily.

The wow factor feels pretty limited here, partially because everything is copy pasted but in the end I think the "beautiful solitude" can only keep you going for so long. They built an impressive scaffolding but the "game" part is missing still, and I don't think base building or turning the game into a freighter trading game is going to work.

Imagine a game like this except instead of flip florps and glip glorps you had Aliens laying eggs on planets where the indigenous life is mutated into bizarre and extremely dangerous species to contend with. It doesn't have to be "Aliens(tm)" but something, anything that gives you an on the edge of your seat experience.

It's lacking a narrative, it needs a strong adversary - the nano bots don't count as they're just a replacement of cops on a galactic scale from grand theft auto.

I get it, this is a chillax game where you're suppose to just take in the amazing accomplishment of going from planet surface to space to landing on a space station and looking down on the world you just came from out a window while walking around on said space station. And that is cool but the rest just leaves a feeling of "so close yet so far away" from being an all around amazing game.

Probably won't last long, kickstarter roms seem to be still guarded by the current owners of Amiga operating system.

I thought they had the classic Doom game playable with a mix between updated monsters and the old level graphics as an Easter Egg unlock, only a few levels are playable this way. Really lame they couldn't at least include all of the original Doom to be played that way.

As for mods, I think they're using that new copy protection that nobody can crack that locks everything away from any modification. Same shit Just Cause uses I believe.

Should just rename it to No Man's Game since they just won't release the dumb thing already.

It's going to be a buggy hot mess at release with most likely plenty of connection to server issues to go around.

I watched some of the leaked gameplay, didn't show more that what they've already have shown with their own play through videos and that's to say, it still looked rather boring. It's a tech demo trying really hard to be a game. The sound seemed rather annoying, especially their ambient background sound effects.

If you're into self flagellation you can still get W10 for "free" with "free" no longer meaning what it used to mean.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade

They're suppose to be closing that loophole soon, you'll need to prove you're blowing through a tube to type on the screen or something.

As for Windows 10, resistance is futile!!

I'm sure they're working overtime to stop people from using start menu replacements and uninstalling their apps, Skype is now integrated into Windows, or so someone said in the comments section of that article. Weeeeee!

There was a battle in WWI where professional British soldiers went up against Germans and the Germans thought they were using machine guns but in actuality they were using bolt action rifles. I forget how fast they were in getting shots down range but it was an impressive number.

Even if they load this down with cosmetic micro-transactions it's still going to be worth getting. I wonder if you can still buy EA games on the cheap using a proxy to Mexico.

I predict micro-transactions for BF1, most likely cosmetic.

You cant deny there isn't a problem when you can go to just about every porn streaming site on the internet and you don't even have a "confirm your age" screen.

Personally I would implement an age check right out of Leisure Suit Larry, before you could play the game you had to answer questions to prove you were old enough.

Apparently they should use the Starcraft universe, see story in today's news.

But that is using the Starcraft 2 engine and thus Blizzard retains full control.

oh, just skimmed the article.

I use https://www.dealzon.com/gaming/pc# to check the deals and also see what the lowest recorded price, it doesn't aggregate from all sales but picks up most places.

Did you just seriously link to a bootleg Windows reddit as proof that Win10 Enterprise can be had for $50? When the poster themselves admits that: a) they are not a licensed dealer, and b) their keys don't always work?

By your logic, Win 10 Enterprise is free, so long as you pirate it!

Windows Enterprise is a lot more than $50 (legally). If you aren't trustworthy about that...

Never knew about that MS virtual desktop utility, they even have keyboard shortcuts to direct switch desktops - (1,2,3,4) something they didn't implement in Windows 10, that I know of anyway.

I haven't been keeping tabs on the whole "metro app" side of things but now you can sideload on windows 10 from any source, and it's enabled by default. That's not something I thought I would ever see them do.

Jesus some of you have an axe to grind here. If setting zany QOS rules to prevent something that takes 3 clicks to disable, if it's not working for your computer/network, is "making the right decision", I'll gladly keep making the "wrong" ones over here.

I don't like Windows 10 or Microsoft's BS as much as the next person, but a good deal of what I've been hearing from people about Windows 10 crosses the line between actual issues and clueless griping.

I would be a lot more likely to be kind to, or interested in, Windows 10, if it offered a single new feature of use or significance. I've perused many a site, looking for just ONE THING that could make it worth it. Just ONE.

DX12/new hardware support doesn't count - it's typical forced obsolescence by Microsoft.

What else is there? Xbox app? Cortana? "Edge browser" (aka Microsoft's delusion that someone will use their browsers)? Bringing back a shitty version of Start Menu?

Nothing. There's nothing. Only spyware and condescending attitude toward the user.

I transitioned from Windows 8.1 so some of it isn't Windows 10 specific but I like that they added the ability to pause file transfers, mostly use it when copying files across the network to play traffic cop. Some don't like the feature but having "quick access" shortcuts on the file explorer is handy, they added Virtual Desktops - kind of surprising when you consider all the doom and gloom about killing off the desktop these days. I do like that they got rid of the charms bar popping up when you move your mouse over to the right edge of the screen. They improved the snap to edge for multiple monitor setups, if you use extended displays you can now snap to the edge that spans between monitors easier.

Few minor tweaks and it feels just like XP/7/8.1 It's an OS though so other than file management and running programs I'm not sure what features would make the experience any different than previous Windows.
