First of all, thank God Evil Avatar is back. Jesus Christ, I thought I was going to die.
Also: I saw that they had mentioned something I’d seen elsewhere, a story about a renewed focus on PC gaming at Microsoft. They talk about stuff like streaming games off compact discs, etcetera etcetera, but the mentioned something about “Levels” I thought was interesting.
Essentially, that a game would say on it what “Level” of PC it would require, “Levels” being a standard whose parameters were defined by Microsoft, I assume. I just want to know if anyone remembers that this isn’t the first time they’ve done this. I believe their standards used to be called “MPC,” or Multimedia PC, and it was based around things like, does it have a sound card? Does it have a 2x CD-ROM? It’s a nice idea and everything, but hardware moves even faster now than it did when personal computers outstripped their first metric.
I think these people need some kind of hobby, maybe bleed off some of this free time.
