    Yeah but it's the first DX12 popamole shooter. And Remedy makes good popamole shooters, too.

    Well let us just say that as far as popamole goes, that footage ranks p. low. Granted the guy playing is really awful.

    Oxymoron. Besides, Max Payne 1 and 2 aren't popamole.

    I like how he reloads the pistol while sticking his head out from cover.

    -no SLI/Crossfire
    -no mods
    -no gsync/freesync
    -no control over the installation path
    -no .exe
    -forced vsync
    -you have to download the entire game with every new patch

    Remedy has always been microsoft's little bitch, only microsoftapproved consoles and the newest operating system allowed. Wasn't Alan Wake supposed to be Vista exclusive at one point (the game came so late that win7 was released and everything was fine again)? Now this store shit, fucking lol.

    I mean, this can't be the case with every single Windows store exclusive, can it?

    Well it seems like they've fixed the "-you have to download the entire game with every new patch" but the other stuff is still in.

    e.g. this happens if you try to play the Windows store version of the new TR with SLI:

    So, quick and dirty port made to attract people to Windows 10 and Windows Store, and eventually to XBONE due to cost and "quality" of their PC experience.

    Windows Store SKU will fail, and a couple weeks/months later it will see a Steam release. Money always has the last word.

    Yeah it's gonna tank p. hard. Though this looks like the kind of game that would tank anyway, not even open world.

    Nah. Most sales will be on XBox anyway since this is very much a popamole consoletard game, and Microsoft will rather eat the loss on the Windows 10 version than admit they made a mistake.
