  1. I've heard that there are interface customization options that are in Win 10 Pro that aren't in Win 10 Home. Is that true?

    I'm looking to get my free upgrade from Win 7 Home Premium but I want the max amount of customization available.

  2. Sipsy has done a long LP series of Poly Bridge, if you're interested in watching him screw up over and over :D -

    (full uncut series on sips live channel)

  3. I use Pale Moon (with adblocking and script blocking extensions) for most of my browsing, it's a fork of Firefox that retains the older interface before they tried to copy Chrome and is compatible with all the legacy extensions.

    For Google services (gmail and youtube) I use Chrome (with an adblocker naturally) since they're already getting data back from those sites and I don't have to worry about random compatibility issues.

    Thanks for turning me on to Pale Moon. I tried it on a lark and I find it quite good!

  4. My new games this time (in chronological order) -

    Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty

    Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3

    Command & Conquer: Tiberium Wars

    Command & Conquer: Kane's Wrath

    Prison Architect Standard

    World in Conflict: Complete

    Majesty Gold Edition

    Dungeon Siege



    Age of Empires II: HD Edition

    total spent - $39.14

    current Steam library size - 200 games

    I was tempted by so many more to fill in the gaps in my game library but I stuck to my budget. My wishlist will have to remain huge for the time being. Oh the pitfalls of being PC master race. :\

  5. I can't say that I've heard of it, but I do wish it for the best. Just remember that 14 years is a long time, a good portion of the creative talent behind the originals have sought employment elsewhere, despite some of it currently trying to drive the creation of the new game.

    It always is nice though, to hear someone giving the old classics the attention they deserve.

    Basically, this was the game that was never supposed to happen. This is like a Half Life 3 moment for Sega fans. I'm still a bit lightheaded over the announcement, no exaggeration! :D

    Imagine feeling this since 2001:

  6. It is not a gamble, you know what the outcome will be. The question is how long you think it will take and whether you feel the prices for renting games for that timespan on Steam are acceptable. I say renting, because you are, by the conditions, buying the right to use the game, not the game itself or anything physical. That is the very definition of renting something.

    I use Steam too. It has a certain convenience, but a lot of developers simply force you to use Steam - even when you buy physical copies. However, I have no illusions about what is going on and that my Steam library will one day disappear into thin air. I already accepted that and makes me limit by spendings a bit.

    I'm not quite so confident that the offerings on Steam have a finite lifespan, necessarily. If Steam ever changes, I see it being sold or transferred to another company, and in that case, the terms might change for better or worse, but the game catalog remains. Also, Gaben has made statements in the past to the effect that if Steam ever ended, they would take steps to make the games playable offline, so that might be a possibility as well.

    I'm not saying it's not possible that Steam might go belly up one day and leave us all in the lurch, but it's not a forgone conclusion either.

    Another thought, there is also the possibility of Valve doing away with their current DRM scheme and making offline copies playable as part of their business strategy. Apple did it with iTunes. It's possible Valve might eventually make that decision to better compete with their DRM-free competitors like GoG.

  7. I had to splurge on the Command & Conquer titles, those and Prison Architect. $20 spent and only the second day oh Gaben please have mercy on me . . :(
