    Poll: If KOTOR was to be remastered, should Bioware be in charge again?

    Karpshyn has been back working on TOR since late 2015. [http://drewkarpyshyn.com/c/?p=1022] OT: As others have said Bioware would do fine if they are just porting the game to a modern engine with modern graphics and the like but I wouldn't trust them with a new Star Wars RPG.

    Report - Destiny 2 is Coming to PC

    You don't really need an emulator for the Xbone, it is using its on custom version of Windows 10 and DirectX. It would take very little effort to port stuff between PC and XBone. The thing people don't like about it is that its basically Microsoft trying to turn the open nature of the PC...

    Report - Destiny 2 is Coming to PC

    UWP games are not exempt from being shitty ports, gears of war runs like shit for a lot of people, mostly those that have Nvidia GPUs. Plus the other hurdle Microsoft have to overcome is to get people to actually use UWP, a lot of people don't like the idea because they remember GFWL.

    Poll: Star Trek: Which Enterprise is Your Favorite?

    Enterprise E, design wise its a throwback to the earlier ships with its slimmer saucer and long nacelles. The Ent-D just looked bulky. Plus the thing kicked ass and didn't have a glass jaw like its predecessor.

    Xbox Play Anywhere Brings Xbox Games to Windows 10, Starting with Gears of War 4

    A couple of them have been addressed but the list is still pretty extensive, and some of them will never be "fixed" because of the draconian nature of UWP. Microsoft are forever going to be trying to sell an inferior restricted product to people who generally are not too keen on the idea as its...

    Xbox Play Anywhere Brings Xbox Games to Windows 10, Starting with Gears of War 4

    UWP is restricting basic pc gaming features such as crossfire/sli, forcing vsync and not even allowing you to run the games in anything besides fullscreen borderless. It also restricts modding heavily to the point of it been like Fallout 4 on consoles. None of these features are exclusive to...

    Xbox Play Anywhere Brings Xbox Games to Windows 10, Starting with Gears of War 4

    Not to mention that these games will use UWP and not win32 executable files so like previous Windows 10 store games they will be missing basic features of PC games.

    Denuvo DRM and Sales

    The rumour was that it was writing to disk over and over which shortens the life of SSDs, I think it was Dragon Age Inquisition that was the game in question but it was never proven.

    Nvidia's GTX 1080 Goes on Sale, Promptly Sells Out Everywhere

    Its definitely worth waiting for the partner cards, the founders GTX 1080 has been shown to have a boost clock that is basically useless as the card its the thermal limit very quickly and has to turn the boost off. So a partner card is a no brainer really, they will almost definitely run cooler...

    Poll: Realism vs player's convenience.

    It depends on the game, fast travel in MMOs is a must nowadays. SWTOR got caned for making players have to walk for half the game when it launched and they did eventually add several methods of speeding up travelling. It was just a forced inconvenience for slowing people down from reaching the...
