I can't stand the guy, but when you have over 50 million people as your audience, you get to make the big choices.

No its M$ loss, they are failing to make sales because they refuse to use the most widely used gaming platform on the planet. Let me put it to you this way, if you use the market and only sell around 40000 copies but if it was on Steam and it sold 200000 copies to me that out does any lose they take to 30 percent. Which one do you thinks makes more sense when you are reaching a far more receptive audience?

I understand what you're saying, but Microsoft doesn't "need" the extra sales - they're not going out of business any time soon because of the extra sales they would've gotten from a Steam release.


I would of course prefer to use Steam as well, but to be honest, I don't care if I download the games from Steam, Uplay, Origin, GOG or any other place for that matter.


Now, the Windows Store absolutely has its issues and it's pretty bad compared to the other digital distribution clients available. It needs more features and it needs to get fixed in other regards as well. Especially removing or make it easy to hide shitty mobile games and stuff. Simply put, a better store front overall.


However, I purchase and play good games. I don't care where I have to purchase and download them. I will support good games no matter the choice of client and so far, Microsoft has been releasing some good games (especially Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3. Killer Instinct is pretty good if you're into those games as well - I'm not. And the mini-version of Forza is great for what it is as well). If they continue to do so and if they make their store front better, people will follow - just like they did with Origin and, in many cases, Uplay.

This is nothing more then M$ trying to force feed us to use their crappy market place. M$ will never learn that no one wants to use their market. Steam is the king of hosting and buying games, but M$ is so butt hurt about this they cant swallow their pride and give in the Valve.Reply

The simple truth is that giving 30% to Steam is kind of stupid if you have the server architecture yourself. If you don't want to use the Windows Store, well, it's your loss.

They forgot to include Pay to Win, most of these games require some form of paying to get to the end game or high end items. Never Winter and STO anyone?Reply

How, why, and when VR will failHow, why, and when VR will fail
Mr. Snazzypants Avatar

So you've never tried VR but you have this much of an opinion? That's a sadly typical sentiment....

Darksx Avatar

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that VR is nothing more then a gimmick, just like the lame assed 3D in theaters. Everyone goes runniing to it like a bunch of flies to a bug catcher and gets all caught up in it until they finally come to realize just how lame the tech really is. Me, until they have Hollo decks like in Star Trek, they can keep their lame VR.

Vivendi is a shitty greedy assed company that will ruin UBIsoft. I cant believe they are wanting to take UBI over. bunch a shit bags!!

This is why Game developers need to avoid putting their company in harms way on the shitty stock market.Reply

To me, the biggest disappointment of this game was the lack of real Coop. The mission Coop is fun, but gets old quick. we really needed to have full blown Coop in the campaign.

My character is built to play solo. I dismissed any potential companions right away. Problem solved.
Darksx Avatar

And that's the beauty about the game and many others when you have a choice to either take them with you or not. I don't see why this needed to be an issue with anyone. That's why games should always present the player with options. Its never a bad thing to have to many options available.

Marvel Heroes 2015 review snippet Is Marvel Heroes 2015 grindy?
Very grindy, all you do is run Cosmic Mid Town, ICP or High Town and this is only to get upgraded gear to drop or get your Omegas maxed out. Theres really nothing else to do. Hardly no new content ever comes out and when it does its minimal at best.
