It won't be on PC. I'm not even sure why this keeps coming up. It was clear the first one never would, which only lends further credence that the second one won't be either.

Haha! What a homerun. Can't wait to watch this unfold. Riot has done their due diligence, and it'll be great to see TWC get what they deserve. Let this be a lesson for other ISPs pulling shady shit.

Calling Windows 10 Cloud ‘ransomware’ is a bit much, Mr. Sweeney…Calling Windows 10 Cloud ‘ransomware’ is a bit much, Mr. Sweeney…
WhiteCrow Avatar

You make a reasonable point, and for the most part I agree with you. For some bizarre reason this writer has it out for Sweeney, so his opinion is a compromised one.

I genuinely have no issue with Tim Sweeney at all. My opinion is that talking in such hyperbolic terms about an unreleased, unannounced operating system - which isn't likely to replace anything that's currently available from Microsoft - is over the top.


If Windows Cloud does release restricting usage of Win32 apps (like Win RT before it) then it will be a license-free version for low-end Chromebook style machines and won't impinge on your rights to run Win32 software on your standard version of Windows. This is not going to be taking anything away from you.


And anyways, if it is like RT it's doomed to failure so we won't have to be talking about it in 12 months ;)

"it also meant we got Bethesda’s Fallout 3"

I'm not sure we all won there, but still good that it was released regardless.

This is dirty.

We know it, they know it, everybody knows it. They craftily handled it though, so no one will directly talk about what they did. We know what they did. They got called out on it, and went to Plan B to make it all look like a big oopsie.

Stay away.

Mario and Duckhunt. Yeah man, the pinnacle of digital storytelling right there. What the hell was that guy talking about? Haha.Reply
Darkhog Avatar

When Mario was first released, it was surprisingly enough. And Duck Hunt prophesied Duck Dynasty.

Haven't touched the game since the months following launch. The abysmal performance killed it for me, and weak post-support. I wonder how it runs now, but I'm debating if the gigs are worth downloading to find out.Reply

Give it another go. There are a few guides out there on what settings were killing framerates. Turning down a few things (I think it was a specific type of AA and blur effects) you won't even notice has been getting people from 12 FPS back up in to the 60s on "recommended" spec rigs.

Whew, the caliber of vitriol on those forums is nuclear. Can't say I blame them though. There's absolutely some kind of agenda going on with Nostalrius that they aren't making public.Reply

I'll never understand the decisions some companies make in development.

Like the article mentions, the main premise of the game is intricate melee combat in a competitive multiplayer environment. Why would you NOT ensure that you take out all the stops for that to be as successful as it can be? If this were an indie title or something coming from a smaller studio, I could understand the decision. This is just lazy and reeks of cost-cutting.

The launch, and following months of this game will echo what occurred with The Division. Mark my words.Reply

AAA games are designed by a board of directors with a budget, not people who want to play video games.
