Hopefully it winds up being less disappointing than Binfinite.

Couldn't disagree with you more. The game was awesome.

I have been using it for a while now, and I found it useful to keep a track of all the games I want to play on all the launchers I am using. I don’t use social features so can’t comment on that - it does seem to have an ability to see friends from other platforms as far as I can tell. 
 

achievemnts from other platforms I use important nicely, and since the most recent updates multiple copies of the same platform combine into one - unless there is a difference in release: like gog and steams XCOM:EU copies. 

Looks like I will not switch anytime soon. It does not support Windows 7, so I'll wait some time before I try to install it...

so I just watched someone play that new Mechwarrior 5 and... Is it me or did those graphics really not look like 2020 (almost) game? I don't know maybe its because of my new rig I got higher expectations? Not impressed at all TBH


I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

I find that you get more enjoyment out of games when have to tinker with the Graphics settings to get a reasonable framerate.  Don't ask me why, I guess it's one of those situations where focusing on pure glitz kinda devalues a bit the meat of the gameplay.  Beauty is only skin deep!

 

I really thought  they'd release 8 first THEN do another REmake so this is a bit surprising.  Also my resemblance to Carlos (As in, he looks almost exactly like me) is a little disturbing but hey if I get to bang Jill who's complaining?

 

EDIT: Actually it's not surprising, I'm sure RE2 sold buckets load more than RE7 so of course they're gonna cash in on that REmake cow and dry it up.  The lack of integrity never surprises me (once I figure it out, at least).

While not direclty video game news related @jph_anderson managed to finish his Witcher analysis video and has troubles posting it on YouTube. Anyone else excited for a full analysis with a runtime of over nine hours? I sure am. :p Here's a smaller one:

So... a month or so? Because that's how much longer W7 will be supported. And I say this as a W7 user...

Nope, it will be longer for sure. I do not need MS support for my Win 7 to run it safe in sandbox environment. Thankfully I have good knowledge of security, to do that, and Win 10 is for me still a big no, because of all the stupid telemetry implemented into it. Also some of my GOG games have hard time running on Win 10.

Yeah, disabling all telemetry and removing bundled malware from W10 Pro is a nightmare. But setting up a W7 VM with GPU passthrough isn't exactly quick and simple either.

Short answer: from W10 Pro, it's not worth it.

Long answer: you'd have to stop services, disable pre-scheduled tasks and prevent apps from installing (ideally by customizing the WIM file before installing the OS). And it would all be rendered pointless at the next feature update anyway because Microsoft really wants you to experience the whole "your system isn't really your system" thing.

So you have three options, at this point. One, get W10 Enterprise if you're dead set on using Windows 10 without bull****. Two, learn to live with it if you're not willing to shell out hundreds in OS subscription fees (which seems to be the model MS and all the cool kids are going for). Three, invest in yourself and your future and move to something like Ubuntu -- forever.

Sorry in advance that it's not the answer you wanted.

Check this website.

In the last paragraph of the operating site you have under "Don't use Windows 10 - It's a privacy nightmare" title few links how to make it less breaching your privacy rights.

Huh, I've found it pretty easy to disable messages on Win10 as they pop up. I get way more on my phone and watch. Yes, I would like the occasional local sports team update while cycling, but no, I don't need to know when teams exchange 5th round draft picks.

I remember uninstalling most of the pre-installed apps via CMD and disabling telemetry when I upgraded to Win10, but I can't remember how nor find the commands I used.
Soon I will have to upgrade my PC (it is old) and reinstall the OS, so any advice is welcome.

My "solution" was to build a new Win10 rig for modern things/games that require it but keep the Win7 rig for anything that doesn't, including old games and email.   After deleting bloatware and going through all the option checkmarks, I haven't had issue with constant Win10 messages/popups either. So far I delay updates as long as it allows (which is pretty long, I haven't done any updates for 4 months) and deal with such only once or twice a year that way. The only O/S reaction to delaying updates that I've had is the small icon in the tray with a red ! on it. :P

I do sort-of the same, except I try to treat my Windows machine as a "console" (aka. gaming only) and use "open" operating systems (GNU/Linux, *BSD) for everything else (that isn't work, because there I don't get to choose, sadly).

I've heard some indication that this will be a more action-oriented entry, which is more my speed to be honest. Combine the atmosphere of the RE2 remake with a well-made zombie shoot-'em up and lose the Myst puzzles and I'm on board.

Well, RE3 *was* more action-oriented than previous titles of the franchise. For me it was pretty much the beginning of the downfall, because it was clear from then on it'll be more and more shooting stuff and less of what RE1 was.
