Well shit, was hoping to buy an Oculus one of these days, hopefully this doesn't affect them making more. I guess there's always the VIVE.

I bet the VIVE project gets shelved too.

Eventually they'll have the technology to put super high res screens into something as comfortable as a pair of glasses, the bulky things they have now will never be a mainstream success.

Battlefield™ 1 was our biggest Battlefield launch ever and has a player base more than 50% larger than that of Battlefield 4™ in its comparable launch quarter.

Gee, do something unique and interesting, and do it well, and people flock to you. Who knew?

Bf1 is only unique in the context of the current near-future warfare fad. FPS games had a golden age of world-war era titles, shit the first battlefield game was 1942.

I say bring back the 2142 era, it was unique.

remember all those easter eggs in BF3 for BF2143, then EA got the Star Wars license and DICE seemed to have killed off that plan, two sci-fi games competing with each other. I would rather have had BF2143 than the Star Wars game.

Thought MS would do a little more toad in the pot before ganking the traditional desktop from Windows.

guess they feel they're ahead of schedule for UWP becoming the enforced standard, for security of course.

Nice job, MSI. Really intelligent and well tested product design there. Sad thing is the stupid gamer kiddies will still buy into this shit.

The most unforgivable design fault is not putting LED lights on it, because everything runs faster and cooler with LED lighting effects.

Everyone is talking about the SP. Anyone willing to expand on the multiplayer though? Does it have dedicated servers? If so what kind are they? (Player admined or not) What type of gameplay types? How is the skill level of the game? Is it more of a traditional type of game, with weapon pickups or is it loadout based? Most importantly does it have "legs"?

It has instanced servers with match making, there's only one active mode on PC - attrition which is 6v6 with bots. Forget any of the other modes as you'll never get a game going unless you have a group of people to play with.

The worst part is they divide the access of the player population via "data centers" without exposing how many players are active on said data center. So if you pick Dallas for your data center you have no idea how many people are connected to it, I'm not sure why you should even need to do this in the first place as it should pool everyone in US to that player base and EU people to another.

I heard that the singleplayer part is very entertaining, but extremely short. So I am waiting for a low price because SP is all I am interested in. If they should ever decide to produce a Titanfall game offering as much quality SP gameplay as the latest Doom, I will be ready to throw more money at them.

Singleplayer is overblown, it has some cool set pieces but the "story" element is pretty damn weak. In a magazine interview with the devs they had people sit down with the editor and make something "cool", they then took these level ideas and stitched them into a game.

I think people that say they're blown away by the singleplayer are falling for the nostalgia like feelings. Some of the levels evoke memories from games like Portal and Half Life.

There's only one word to describe the multiplayer on PC, Dead. They should add a PvE mode where you can play the maps online/offline with drop in multiplayer co-op against AI.

Exactly. Why are you giving a pass to Trump for what you claim all the previous Presidents did -- which is what you are complaining about? There IS NO DIFFERENCE. And saying Hillary is in the bankers pocket even if it is true, doesn't matter. Trump is President, and he is lining his cabinet with those bankers you are complaining so bitterly about...

You must be from the future when big bankers no longer control the money supply. Present day earth however, they do.

now it's camera angles?

CNN picture shows the National Mall full of people all the way back to the monument, the picture that many news sites are using are when there were half as many people.

You ctrl-left people are amazing, where was all this pent up angst when the DNC and Hillary stole the party nomination away from Bernie Sanders? Too busy smugly gloating about how badly Trump was going to get destroyed while watching CNN non stop?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nc5p5mD08D4

here's an "alternate' camera angle for you

What do you think that gigapixel shows? I see empty space at the back.

The media reported on the size of the crowd because that's what they do. No one is saying nobody showed up, that's your false narrative. People are saying that Trump is less popular than Obama was, what's wrong with that?

Gee, I don't know

Thousand of protesters launched a violent rampage just blocks away from the White House as anti-Trump demonstrators smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police


You don't know, so you're giving me a completely irrelevant link to change the subject?

Satire is lost on some people. It's completely irrelevant that the media continue on it's tirade of bashing Trump and inflaming hatred with nonsensical reports on sizes of crowds, okay.


"Nonsensical" = accurate. Show me a single MSM report on the crowd sizes that isn't accurate.

Meanwhile, you are still ignoring that the Press Secretary flat out lied. Somehow, to you, that's the fault of the media. It's mind-blowing to me. Had they just said "the crowds were large and we're very happy with the turnout on this rainy January morning" people would have been fine, but that isn't what the Press Secretary did. He claimed it was the most viewed ever, both in person and on TV. Both those statements are provably false.

And then, when pushed, the White House continued by calling it not a lie but "alternate facts."

Yet you're still harping on news reports you imagined.

I did already, that link down below "Donald Trump inauguration crowds fail to fill National Mall"

the CNN giga picture shows the crowd going all the way back.

you're right they shouldn't call it "alternate facts" they should just call it what it is, "fake news".

Lot's of people showed up, end of story.

Except it's not the end of the story, because Trump thought it would be a good idea to send out his press secretary to declare that this was the most watched transition ever, moments after commenting that there are no hard numbers on attendance and viewership. And now, this morning, the soulless administration minions dispatched to the Sunday talk shows are, on being confronted with Sean Spicer's bullshit, talking about "alternative facts" and how "you can't quantify crowd numbers".

Every time Trump and his people make an ass of themselves, they reduce their stock of political capital with which to get anything done in their administration. The more absurd they behave, the less Congress is able to keep pretending the Emperor is wearing clothes. If Trump actually wants to win so much we get tired of winning, then he needs to find a better political hill to entrench on than the size of his inaugural audience.

Right out of the gate the media is trying to paint a false narrative that he's completely unpopular, so unpopular that nobody showed up for his inauguration. It's the media that are acting childish in this case.

Of course they want to continue to fan the flames of hate, it's good for ratings to see agitators smash windows of Starbucks and burn cars.

As for making asses of themselves, I see a lot of that by mostly Hillary supporters these days.

Nice elderly lady has a confrontation with nasty Trump supporter

The thing that gets me is that the ONLY reason why anyone cares how big the crowd was at inauguration is because we all know that Trump cares so much about size. If Trump had the emotional maturity not to care and the self-discipline not to mouth off about it, then the crowd size would have been a non issue. Instead, we now have him and his staff lying about something which anyone with a functioning pair of eyeballs can clearly see is a lie. If they're willing to abandon all shame, and lie about something so easily proven as a lie, and so unimportant in the scheme of his administration, then when, exactly, can we ever expect them to tell the truth? At least they are beginning their administration by not presenting us with any illusions about their credibility, or lack there of. This is going to be a long four years.

Maybe this will help you out.

I don't really know the point of attending an event like this unless you're in the main seating area but whatever. Lot's of people showed up, end of story.

The only way to secure a computer against prying eyes is to turn it off.

You can mitigate what Microsoft collects. Don't use cortana, windows apps, microsoft accounts, cloud services, edge browser etc.

Trump has the nuclear codes now, sleep safe!

Obama also gave Trump expanded surveillance powers as a parting gift
