Interesting video on the HoloLens, using Unity and VisualStudio for program development.

Someone even brought up the radiation question, it's passed all the "tests" in the US. They can hide behind that but people will eventually be able to see the SAR rating and if it's too high the device will be dead, mostly in Europe - they like to really keep that information in the US from consumers.

News Comments > MS: New CPUs Will Require Windows 10 (or Linux)

Windows 10 can be tamed if you know what you're doing or are willing to do a little bit of research, for those that don't know how or are too lazy to disable Cortana and the Windows Store apps - let them be data mined.

I don't think you'll be able to escape the clutches of MS anytime soon, new graphics cards, CPU's, Motherboards and even VR will be using Windows as the platform of choice for major game studios. That "free" offer expires in June new hardware going forward will require a purchased copy of the OS.

You can always multiboot if you're ultra paranoid. I know I would end up spending 90% of my time in Windows though, that's where all my games and supported drivers are for my system.

Would really like to see some actual gameplay video, it sort of reminds me of "Ground Control" from what I've seen.

Give us at least a walkthrough of the the tutorial mission in video form.

If I were Frontier I would add in a campaign mission for enlisting in the Imperial Navy, at the very least have a string of missions attached to a carrier group but it wouldn't kill them to flesh it out and have some voice over work added for some extra immersion.

They need to bring the thargoids into the universe, right now they're just an "Alternate Reality Game" ARG based on some easter eggs in the game. Endlessly teasing but nothing of substance.

Aside from that I wouldn't expect any traditional campaign story mode added to the game, it's an open sandbox where your gameplay is the story.

If they can get other publishers to go along for the ride and add to their selection of games then maybe, EA doesn't have a deep enough bench to warrant it on the PC.

Barring (again) the ridiculous idea that North Korea could invade the US, it really doesn't look half bad. I got kind of a Watch Dogs vibe from it, though this is just a straight up shooter, right?

Might be interesting.

That would actually be pretty cool....more Watchdogs than rails shooter.....that could be pretty deep.

This is a rails shooter, the gadget and hacking bit just look like lame mini-games.

Why would you need to put North Koreans as the bad guy in a future dystopian scenario, it's more likely to be an all out military police state imposed by the US Government on their own people.

HTC can't sell it at a loss, they don't have a "zuckerberg" sugar daddy like Rift does. I keep reading that HTC is teetering on financial ruin as their cell phone sales have dried up.

I don't even know what I'd want to see in a Half Life 3 to be honest. It's not like the story was super compelling so I feel like I really need to have an ending.

A game set 100% on Xen!

To me HL has always been more about the setting and less about the interaction with other characters. I remember for HL2 they had the early physics test they showed off and I thought it would have been chocked full of physics puzzles but that didn't seem to happen.

I think it would be more about modernizing the gameplay, allowing players to craft bizarre weapons and bombs while bringing the visuals up to photo realism that's possible today both with the environments and creatures. I really wouldn't mind another tripped out Xen experience, something more along the line of Avatar though.
