They're setting things up to take over the desktop but need to wait until windows 7/8 is completely dead. They could make DirectX development exclusive to UWP. Shame that Valve didn't ply their resources into improving the general Linux desktop experience for gaming.

Apple is too greedy to flip the table on MS and open up their OS for *gasp* clones.

Google is no picnic with their initiative to move everything to the "cloud" as long as it's their cloud you move to.

What would be great irony is if IBM took up the charge of putting a friendly consumer face on Linux.

They should completely remove technology from schools up till at least grade 5.

you see these zombie kids glued to tablets and cellphone screens being pushed around in grocery carts everywhere, many of which could use the exercise of actually walking in the grocery store.

You think computers should be banned from schools until grade 5? Kids grew up far better with computers than us because they're in front of them from day 1.

And yes, kids are glued to their tablets and phones while pushed around in grocery carts. When we were kids, we were glued to our comics or action figures. Times haven't changed, you've just become the person yelling at kids to get off your lawn (second reference I've made to that in 2 minutes!)

Technology is being used to babysit not teach. Having an ipad lab for kindergartners is a waste of tax payer money no matter how you want to spin it.

What's funny is if you look at where CEO's of technology companies send their kids you won't find any laptops or ipads.

Let me know when the ipad generation can pass a test from 1912.

They had to upgrade the 486 computer they use for tracking users from 4meg to 8meg.

you just can't anticipate that sort of thing.

I do wonder if it would have turned out any better for them if they were more honest about the content of the game. My guess is by being shady hucksters they were able to move a lot more units than they "anticipated".

Does this mean we won't be seeing any games from Zenimax supporting the Rift?

Zuckerberg could probably buy up ZeniMax and would hardly notice any money missing from his account.

Performance seems a little better than the closed beta, though I did install the very latest Nvidia driver that was posted on here a few days ago.

It's a hybrid between Far Cry and The Division, people looking for ultra hard core milsim are going to be disappointed. It's chock full of copy-paste missions and activities but then again what open world game isn't?

another mindless shooter with pretty graphics.

when robots are doing creative things like writing movie scripts or music then I'll agree with him.

look at how many people were replaced with the invention of the PC, that kind of automation is okay though right?

They should have had devs lined up out the ass to have product ready to go.

I don't know how Oculus wasn't able to have a major AAA game ready to launch with Rift given a) the ridiculously long dev time Rift had and b) that facebook money. I'm sure as engines are built for VR support it'll slowly gain ground, but what a whimper of a start for the medium...

The only killer app for VR so far is sit down simulators like Elite Dangerous, the rest is just caravel games.

VR is and will remain niche.

I think Microsoft is aimed in the proper direction, their AR Hololens is cordless and amazing in its current form.

Get that $3000 price tag down and it will be amazing with Windows, work and play.

until you realize that you're strapping a wifi computer to your head, I'd like to see how they can get it a SAR rating that's in line with a cell phone. Even if they do get it down to cell phone levels, you typically don't strap a cellphone to your head for hours and hours.

yes there's gear vr but even that is so casual you only play games for minutes not hours.

If I greatly enjoyed Future Solider, will I like this one as well?

Thanks!

Have you always wanted to play Far Cry in 3rd person with 4 player co-op?

if yes then this game might be for you, otherwise wait for reviews and or a deep discount.

speaking of which, looks like ubisoft is implementing stricter region controls, most of the discount sites only have the euro version for a decent price.

from my experience with the beta I wouldn't pay more than $40 for the base game, given that they're doing the season pass thing I think I'll just write it off completely.

I was unimpressed in the beta. Its GTA V for adults...and honestly nothing but Farcry 4 open world with other people.

It controls like the Division for the most part but you can lay down.

the AI is stupid as a liberal after a Trump win

lol, the missions were pretty funny. steal this helicopter and then drop it off over here less than a mile away. good thing though because the helicopter was like trying to push a brick through a wall of jello.

I did break out of the beta walled in zone, (probably the most fun thing to do - you had to beat the countdown instakill-timer by doing a melee take down of an enemy while the counter was at 2 seconds), managed to fly around the rest of the map, even though the assets like buildings were missing you could still tell it's going to be one giant copy-paste job with lots of empty space between villages. You could see areas that had roads for tiny cities but nothing bigger than what was in the beta. No modern city areas.

The AI won't get smarter, they just make harder AI bullet sponges and maybe a little more accurate in their shots.

The repetitive mission design is going to be fatigue inducing, the overall theme of fighting south american drug cartel seems uninteresting given all the different scenarios they could have chosen. Limits your options in terms of military hardware, you won't be driving tanks or jets. They do have attack helicopters but only for the AI that I could see. The destruction seemed lacking, some road signs would break apart but some where unbreakable. It's not a "loot drop" game though so I don't think there will be more powerful guns that look exactly like the one you've already picked up. You find the weapons in crates around the map, once you've opened the crate it's unlocked.

Unless you have a group of people buying it your level of enjoyment will probably be pretty low. No way are you going to be able to get anywhere with co-op playing with randoms.

Didn't they poor a bunch of money into Homefront sequel? The one that failed big time, probably more so than the original.

They just couldn't come up with the magic sauce to compete against the likes of Call of Duty and even Battlefield to some degree.

"Nvidia’s promo games will now be tied to the GPU they’re bundled with."

this is smart... makes the games to be played as intended, and prevents people from selling the games off

despite Nvidia's assurance otherwise it looks like they're going to force people to use their "geforce experience" software.

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.
