Uhh, I'm pretty sure every Xbox One game from here out is required to work with Windows 10?

I could be wrong but I'm expecting a PC launch here, probably delayed like the GTA V one.


Microsoft is opting out of having their own console exclusives? That seems like a weird move.

Fucking lame, they changed the plan.

They'd be insane not to bring it to PC. GTA Online made them so much fucking money.

You're not wrong, but a RDR1 HD-update/PC release would have probably sold really well at any time over the last couple of years, and they're apparently never going to do it. Hell, I'd still throw them $20 for a copy even if they didn't update the graphics.

It's kind of the same thing as Destiny...it seems like a company is opting out of a relatively small amount of work that would cater to an existing base of demand. Maybe XB1 games are harder to port to PC than I think? I dunno.


Anyway, in case anyone hasn't seen the teaser (doesn't really look like there's any plot stuff in here, but dang is it pretty):

Key is only valid for 8 days for those of you who let them sit! You get the game permanently but the steam key won't exchange after 8 days.

I will never be hardcore enough to play Dwarf Fortress, but I almost wish I were.

This is a pretty boss GMing tool, for anyone proactive enough to actually use audio.

Shocked

(Single-stage takeoff+landing craft, carrying 60 passengers from Kerbal to Eeloo/Pluto and back, gravity-accelerating around several moons and planets on the way to save a huge amount of fuel. It also takes 60 in-game years to complete the mission.)

This video is a longer and more detailed version, with narration:

The re-entry made me laugh a little.

We've been having fun with it so far. It's early, but not terribly buggy.
