    Most games are written for DirectX 10 and 11, some even backwards to 9. It is true that Intel is now only officially supporting Windows 10 with their latest chips, doesn't mean that they won't work with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

    Will I understand what is going on in Destiny 2 if I haven't played the first?

    The way I understand it, while it's not exactly a clean slate, it's close enough that you won't have problems. May have to brush up on some lore but that's all online.

    Revisited Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. I had forgotten how well the ship battles and oceans were modeled. Great to just jump in and putz around a for a bit. Enjoying replaying it. Hoping the next one in the series pans out as well if not better.

    Been itching for a good sci-fi opera on the scale of the original ME trilogy. Was hoping upcoming games would cover that but doesn't look promising.

    I have been eyeballing Destiny 2 but most of the initial impressions on the beta are lukewarm which really throws a red flag on the gameplay cycle.

    In the first one aliens attacked. A big orb helped humanz by giving them the floaty robot guy from halo and special powers. Now aliens took the big orb and humanz have no powers or something and you must go kill more aliens.

    Turns out, it's really hard to do good science fiction games.

    Great video - always love videos from Extra Credits. Well here's to hoping we can get back to them after the loot shooter phase dies down a bit. Always up for a good rip roaring story.

    You have no idea how happy it makes me that he didn't use 'science fantasy' as a pejorative term.
