This goes back a ways, but Winamp 4 doesn`t exist either (for similar marketing strategies).

And just look at where Winamp is now. Tongue

Also, Leisure Suit Larry 4 doesn't (didn't?) exist since Al Lowe had publicly vowed that there would be no number 4 in that series, and that was turned into a plot point in later games.

Bought by AOL and it`s programmers were handsomely paid... hardly a fate worse than death.

I like the fact that they`re incorporating multi-desktop and up to four snaps. I just hope the display section matures for monitor configurations.

I just can`t care less about LOTR properties - they`re prolific and even if a decent game is out, I`m tired of Uruk-hai and dark, rainy sets.

Honestly, I still prefer the 60`s animated Hobbit to the latest iteration - and Shadows of Mordor just doesn`t make me want to play it.

I think I`m growing out of geekdom. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings ... what`s next - Marvel?

It`s better than going to Windows XP2, and at least it`s not Windows ME.

As for the 10, if you really want to bash it, then consider it Windows 1 with 0 added to it. Tongue

I`m looking forward to seeing more programs using the unified development structure. Build 2014 highlighted how simple it is from a dev management issue to create multiplatform apps without having a massive version change. Yeah, there will still be the same programming challenges that any creative team faces, but at least you can have your common assets controlled in a central location through the studio app and be able to create your apps (which includes for non-Windows platforms, depending on the base programming platform).

That`s probably the most responsible thing MS has done in this.

It's Bungie. I'm surprised the game is as finished as it is. (Remember the Halo 2 -mid development not even started fiasco?)

I'm not loving it. It's alright, but I can't see caring about this game like I did with Borderlands / BL2.

Thinking about 343 Guilty Gear, this isn't as far fetched as it seems. I can't wait for the library level. Oh wait, the retread of levels is kinda just that. slywink

I will admit to liking punching guys with a Titan. Knuckleduster was a challenge I enjoyed.

This quote can also apply to Titanfall, oddly enough.

I will state right now, that I do not love Destiny. I think CAD hit the nail on the head - for an MMO, there is sadly no loot incentive. I also think the scap option doesn't pay out well enough, and I think they probably focussed on balancing too much and ended up shaving off the "fun".

It feels soulless and while I will get a character to 20, I am not in love. I'm not even sure I'm in like.

I went from Day One no doubt purchase to not touching this game with a ten foot pole based on the beta gameplay alone. When you couple that with how desperately Bungie seemed to be trying to deflect criticism before the game was even released, I don't find it surprising that the scores are middling.

Say what you will about Polygon, but the Giant Bomb guys are usually pretty reliable. And all except for one was really "meh" on the game when they discussed it in their podcast before the review.

I have no doubt the game will probably get better as they add DLC and whatnot. The question is whether or not anybody will still be playing. The next six to nine months are going to be utterly packed with big budget titles.

The GB guys are idiosyncratic.  Jeff has really weird taste in FPS games, Syndicate was exceptionally middling and he LOVED it.  They were all also super late to the D.Souls party.

MP on Syndicate was phenomenal, but since challenge didn't scale to number of members, it was very, very hard with just two.

The MP side should have been the full game. Running missions to take over the world. You know, just like the first one. Tongue

Thrustmaster TX Ferrari wheel is just over a hundred. Paddle-shifting, no clutch or gearbox. Also, I understand there is no force feedback and doesn't work with every racing game. It does work with Forza Motorsport 5 though, so I'd expect the same for Horizon 2.

Gonna wait for a Steam sale of better savings.

This game belongs in the deep discount bin, if the gameplay I had at E3 last year was any indication.

They're not "a joke," but like all manufacturers, they are misleading. Computer markers define a gigabyte as 1,000,000,000 bytes. A computer defines a gigabyte as 1,073,741,824 bytes, thus the difference. On the Mac, Apple has switched the OS to using the marketing definition. I wonder why they haven't done that on iOS.
Computer makers (I assume that's what you mean) don't define a Gigabyte incorrectly - if there is hardware variance, it has more to do with block size and data use, as well as underlying OS requirements.

The marketing info shows the maximum capacity of the device storage rather than the maximum available space. Some examples include the Surface Pro 128(GB) which only offered ~90GB as 30 was reserved for the OS. The 20GB Xbox 360 had 11GB of space available for storage.

At least they're all doing the same thing, so even if it's wrong, it's predictable.

They're going to announce a HUVr case for it shortly. Then you can simply float on your phablet.

This is the one after you retrieve the jump drive. You go to the comms tower and then end up having a locked door into a larger darkened area where you need to commit yourself to going into the room, and then get swarmed. I'll try it on normal when I get home.

Was skipping out on Destiny. Then I discovered last week I'd preordered the fancy-schmancy one on XB1. Preloaded. Played this morning.

We'll see. This is not a traditional game format. I'm not sure about the MMO aspects.

I never left. I was waiting for there to be something worth saying.

I am constantly disappointed that gaming has devolved to a VHS/Betamax argument.

I own one, not the other (and at this point I have more important things to spend money on). I have very little gaming time, and have taken a break from writing as I simply can't commit the time. My time to game likely won't change a ton though a cold autumn might persuade me to play a little more.

I intend to distill anything I have to say into, short, concise blurbs. We'll see how that goes. Tongue
