    Is Android considered more complex/less accessible than Iphone? When I got my S6 edge it took me about 5 or so minutes to basically have everything set up how I want it. The app store also isn't exactly brain surgery to operate. Just hit the green install button lol

    As the AH/FH folks played it recently, Gigantic has a UWP client version which allows play between Xbox One and Windows 10.

    I'm done with these post shows. For the casual podcast discussions, totally fine. Nice little bonus for paying to be a sponsor. But this is gaming news.


    The Patch started at a time when the RT podcast came out for YouTube a week after and like episode 2 of The Patch, they said "This is time sensitive information that might not be relevant a week late," so YouTube got it a day after sponsors. Now, they're withholding news for Sponsors?


    Why?


    That's not going to entice anyone to join the sponsorship program. It's nice to get more, but you're making this content anyway, why not give it to everyone since it doesn't spur sponsorships?

      Ashley literally says at the start of the show that the post show is for things that they didn't have time to discuss in the regular podcast. She also posted a journal asking for suggestions for topics to talk about so news is not being withheld as I'm fairly certain The Know already did news videos about comments Tim Sweeney made about Microsoft. (Just checked, one video was 4 months ago and the other was a week ago)


      You're welcome to your opinion but I think your outrage/annoyance is misplaced.

    First I was like Yey! Kdin! But the more false statements he uttered, the more I felt Gus was ready to pounce and ban him from the show. And they wee all false statements.

    Kdin's comments on Halo Wars 2 are wrong. Your single player save will carry over, you get both versions for one purchase and you can play them both on any machine. The only thing it doesn't have is cross platform multiplayer play between X1 and PC.

    26:10 "It's so much easier to be like, 'I have an iPhone. I want this App. Done'."


    Implying that you can't do that in the Google Play store.

    So literally Kdin said that cross platform on rocket league is only between console when both xbox and ps4 support cross play already with PC... That they are working on getting playstation to allow them to do cross platform between xbox and ps4... Like its been previously stated by other commentors that halo wars will support cross save just not cross platform play... 10 minutes of this entire show was based on inaccurate information by Kdin...

    While it's true that Sweeny isn't totally full of shit and Microsoft does in theory have the ability to cripple Steam and games in general in some way by phasing out the Win32 API, I highly doubt MS would be dumb enough to just flip a switch and kill off Steam and related Win32 apps.


    I can see MS making a push towards UWP apps (Windows 8 metro style apps) in the future because the whole idea of a store built into the OS as a repository to get all your software and updates and what not is a great idea (Apple and Linux have been doing it for a while and it works really well) so the end result is good for consumers, but not as bad for developers as Sweeney is making it seem. Really, the only thing Steam would need to do is change the way they install and manage games on the user's computer.


    What I would be worried about is MS preventing installations from 3rd party sources (like Apple machines do by default, but can be re-enabled in settings) because depending on how it's done, it could hurt a lot of programs that have their own software installer/updater. Also I would be worried about Microsoft killing off the Win32 API (highly unlikely, and will definitely be a slow roll out unless MS wants to Brexit their stock prices overnight).


    FWIW, Sweeney and Epic are probably at odds with MS because their recent software decisions have made game performance suffer greatly on UWP. If MS forces games to be UWP compliant, they're going to have to step up their game ASAP or be prepared to piss off every gamer ever.

    They never talked about the pokemon Dildos!


    Seriously though, if you guys intend to start a tech support branch, I'd be glad to apply. I have plenty of experience with tech support and education and I really enjoy building PCs and teaching others about how they are made, how to build them, and what are good choices to maintain performance, while staying in your budget. Only problem is, my current job takes up all but I few hours each day (which I use watching RT content). If I could get paid to do that though, I would be beyond dedicated. Wouldn't even feel like a job to me.

    Halo Wars 2 will feature cross platform saves, all your progress, stats and achievements go with you, just not cross platform play

    I want to put thermal paste in my PS4 to make it run better but it's hard to fit it in the small holes on the sides. Do you have any tips, Adam?

    Do the How to Build a PC video!! I can't tell you how hard it was for me when I started and how nervous my friends who just got into PC gaming are about breaking their stuff.

      Well I'm sure Adam's instructions would help greatly with that. Be sure to lick the CPU really good before you stick it onto the the motherboard, it needs to be nice and wet or the connection won't work.

      Seriously, I have been putting off even researching how to build a good gaming PC because I have been waiting for some one like Adam from RT (someone I generally know of) to put all the info in one place. The only thing aftet that would be to just save up and build it haha.

    Sorry but didn't Game Club used to basically be the post show? I get talking for another 20 minutes is easier than everyone buying and completing the same game, but...

    • derprah FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I think game club is only once a month though. Also i think it is technically a separate show :)

    • Stonewall57 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      There is no but unfortunately. They admitted when Game Club went to a monthly show that it is just too difficult to play enough in a week to be able to talk about it decently.


      I assume that when game club comes around that will replace the post show, also I'm guessing that they still feel like they need to put out more stuff because they want to give people a reason to become a FIRST member, that and with the price going up a bit they want to make it seem that the people who already have it are getting their money out of it.


      That last part, maybe I'm wrong, IDK, but I get what you mean as well, watching Game Club every week was so cool. I loved hearing about all of those games that many I will probably never get to play.

    I'm not exactly convinced that Microsoft would do what Sweeney talked about, but I think it's a distinct possibility. They have an established record of monopolising behaviour. Also Adam I nearly died when you started talking about thermal paste.
