Windows 10 leak reveals new Xbox app for PC

How is Microsoft not going to disappoint us in January? If there's no word of apology for the truly shocking state of GFWL; a software service from one of the world's largest software companies... I don't think it's going to go well.

Release some games on Steam Microsoft, give DX12 to Windows 7 users onwards and shut the hell up about your Xbox app.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is pure fan service

If its "pure fan service" then put it on PC. PC gamers have been getting token platform support for the last 7+ years now. Would go a long way to mending the relationship people have with Microsoft after Games for Windows - LIVE's reign of terror.

@null Only it will be shit. Leader might be capable and qualified, but this is Microsoft. Don't underestimate their incompetence in delivering his vision. I expect they'll announce more useless metro crapware, whilst porting some good solid older AAA titles to Steam. Easy money.

Lame argument for defending a low quality port. They're charging the same price as everyone else and for that price Far Cry or Assassins Creed 3 graphics are by FAR superior to Dead Space 3. In other words cut the price or improve the graphics EA and Papoutsis. Lazy buggers.

This dudes just jealous and little insecure in Microsofts position. I swear Microsoft Execs like him walk around with this cloak of "we're Microsoft everything we do is great and successful". Valve with Steam have CRUSHED Games for Windows LIVE into the dirt. Microsofts PC gaming business is a joke. If Valve can emulate similar success in the living room and take a good cut of Microsoft's numbers I will be very, very happy =D .

This game was doomed to fail from the start. The murderer GFWL. Devs don't use awful software services if you want your game to have a long life! FROM Software use Steamworks on Dark Souls 2 and don't do a low quality port again! You're lucky the modder Dante kindly made that mod. IMHO FROM owes a considerable amount of revenue to him.

Microsoft has no reputation and gets no respect in the PC Gaming space. They killed their best PC IPs and put in 0 effort. Fuck you Microsoft!

Mass Effect 3: Omega review

Bioware has lost their touch with Mass Effect 3 DLC. All they seem to focus on now is what new things can we add to make it sell? So they add a token female Turian and more of Aria a beloved ME character.

I won't be getting this just like the rest of ME DLC, at this point I don't care any more. We all know our decisions lead to nothing and choices matter little. More worryingly this DLC was crafted by Bioware folks working on ME4... Damn...

This is stupid, the biggest release of this week is not on the largest digital distribution hub.

Anyway hurry up Ubisoft I wanted to pre-order and now that chance has gone. Who ever has screwed this up, you dickhead.

Dark Souls PC Preview: The Devil's Bargain

deadstoned

From the moment they announced GFWL the poor graphics menu and console low quality was assured. GFWL immiedatly means the port is as low cost and as cheap as they can cut it. GFWL does not inspire hope only dread of a poor quality port.

Developers and Publishers please stop using GFWL

Namco and Capcom please look at what Square Enix is delivering with Sleeping Dogs/Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Thats how to make a PC SKU. Thats why I know I can confidently pre-order Tomb Raider.

From Software "having a tough time" porting Dark Souls to PC, frame rate issues remain

deadstoned

6 years ago

I wish they'd focus on getting it all working first before launching it. Since it will use GFWL we can't rely on seeing more than maybe 2 patches. Batman Arkham City only got 2 with DX11 and saves still broken. DEVELOPERS STOP using GFWL, a service which restricts size of patch, number of patches, release date of patch, a service which has the clunkiest patching system known to man and also charges devs/publishers for extra patches.

EA: Origin won't copy Steam 75% off sales

deadstoned

6 years ago

I haven't bought anything from Origin yet. I just want good deals and well priced games. But when I look on Origin, they're charging 39.99 for most of their pre-order games and some like Sim City and Medal of Honor Warfighter its 44.99 and 49.99. No fucking way EA, thats completely extortionate. 29.99 that's a fair deal, same as retail, but 25%-50% extra just for being from Origin? GTFO.

The Origin client isn't too bad, better than GFWL by a huge margin, but not as good as Steams. Not even close.

Of course Dark Souls was going to be Steam that was obvious, why is that news?

The fact that GFWL is still its choice of DRM that is the big part. Games that release as GFWL in 2012 are the worst kind of ports. So I'll save my money for something I know that will actually work and have a competent system for updates etc. Not a Gamerscore boosting piece of crapware.
