By that point 90% of games will be online service games anyway, so I won't cry too much. I'll keep some kind of offline Win7 or Win10 backup and play everything older on that. Seeing how big the retro console market has gotten with enthusiast, I bet we see retro PCs as well if modern Windows ever has actual issues with older games.

Would be funny if it turned out to be next Diakatana, but I don’t see that happening.
Don't be so sure.

"I'd give Mirror's Edge a 10/10 and Cyberpunk a 4/10 in unarmed combat. Well this is just the prologue, thus we might unlock cool moves later in Cyberpunk Check out the link to source footage and my thoughts & opinion in the description."

I for one will have boarded the Linux ship long before that point though.

It's never too early to start! Test it out in a virtual machine or throw it on a flash drive and boot into it just to get your feet wet.

A lot of older Windows games actually run better in Linux than on Windows 10. It's typically newer games and/or games with anticheat software that Linux can't run. I feel like it would be a better alternative than keeping a dead OS on an offline PC. But if you're dedicated to Microsoft, you can still use some of the same technologies Linux uses for benefit on Windows. For example, DXVK is a DirectX-to-Vulkan compatibility layer. It translates DirectX 9/10/11 calls into the modern (and cross-platform) Vulkan API which can result in better performance and greater stability.

What is it about Linux that makes a less than 1% minority feel like they're everywhere, responding to all the posts all the time.

Some sort of selection bias. Baader–Meinhof phenomenon? I was quoted, so I replied to that message and happened to do so to yours immediately below that one.

Don't take such posts so seriously. I admire the Linux passion, even if it feels like a thin napkin covering a 10 mile radius sometimes.

I had forgotten how good Mirror's Edge was.

As for Cybercuck 2077, it has everything going for it to be a great commercial hit. Games win on two main things-scale and variety. They don't have to excel in anything, as long as they have scale and variety going for them.

The best example in this regard is Half-Life 2. Mediocre gunplay, mediocre story, mediocre to bad vehicles, yet it got praised for all of this. Same goes for the GTA series-they are neither the best 3rd person shooter, nor are they the best driving games, yet they are extremely successful commercially and critically. Not to mention completely horrendous shit like Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim.

This is what Cybercuck 2077 is going for. And chances are, it will succeed, unless it falls victim to its own hype.

looks almost as exciting as witcher 1 boxing


New melee looks little better, either way the story and characters are important


Yeah, melee in Mirror's Edge is way better than Cyberpunk.

Witcher 1 boxing was an abomination.

Basically I agree with you. I don't know why the fuck I posted. Alzheimer.

The first Mirror's edge is stylish, streamlined nicely, and fuck, the graphics hold up to this day.

I think it'll be good at what it's doing, but a lot of people will want it to be something else and will thus say it's bad.

This was my prediction and ehhhhh... I think it didn't meet that bar. The side content is just lacking context and story too much, while the main quest is too story focused and cinematic. You either feel like you're grinding endless repetitive gameplay or you're watching a movie that makes you hold W a lot when you could just be watching a real movie that is probably written way better. I was hoping for an open world Deus Ex Human Revolution and I guess we got that for the most part, but the way the game's content delivery is designed is just a massive drag.

My prediction, "probably less than sum of its parts" seems too charitable now, but what the sum of all this jumble of bugged out parts may end up being, I don't rightly know. In the end, I think they should've turned to the rich trove of their own sci-fi literature and history as inspiration and created a novel game they could explore and iterate upon. I feel even as they were crunching away at adapting this futuristic Dystopian take from the past set in a world far away and alien, they were searching for that soul, naming the penultimate mission after Chopin's Nocturne.
