Now that's not true, from the late 90s until about 2001, Windows gaming was a priority for Microsoft and they made a decent push forward with DirectX, publishing titles like Age of Empires, Mechwarrior 4, Freelancer, Dungeon Siege, etc.


Once they rolled out the Xbox, that all stopped and it became a period of about 15 years of acting passive aggressive towards Windows gamers.

That's a good point, actually... those were some awesome titles. Such a shame they've forgotten their heritage

I've been a PC gamer for 25 years and, as far as games go, Windows has never been a priority for Microsoft and I can't see it changing... especially with Phil "Xbox" Spencer around. Even when they try and talk about things they are doing for PC, they end up talking about things for Xbox, they just can't help themselves. I'm not sure they even understand PC gaming/gamers.

I'm a PC gamer despite Microsoft, not because of them.Reply

Spot on. The "support" they offer PC extends only as far as getting people potentially interested in the Xbox brand.

Are you sure about those times? The Ghost Recon site suggests otherwise: 6am CET for Steam and 12am CET for UPlay in the UK/EU

Good luck... sadly mine crashes as soon as you launch the game. Only game I can think of in recent memory that has done that on my system. Nothing I've tried so far has resolved it...

Love the "feel" of the game but have already run into an odd issue where an AT-ST vanished in the final round of survival (which was annoying given that I'd picked up all the collectables) and my first few matches of Drop Zone put on a team of 4 Vs 8... I do wish they'd include a server browser.

I was also surprised that you start with no star cards at all when you play Drop Zone for the first time... makes it tough when most people already have at least the thermal detonator and the Cycler rifle... but at least it doesn't take too long to unlock something

I upgraded my first PC, a 486SX33, 4Mb RAM, 170Mb hard drive and a Cirrus Logic 1Mb Windows Accelerator card, with an extra 4Mb of RAM so I could play Dark Forces... it was the start of a slippery (and expensive) slope.

That extra 4Mb cost me just over £100!
