Now that we can have easily enough have 10-bit hardware on our gaming machines, it would be awesome if game devs and others would make the software to keep up.

(For those who want to argue that we can't see a billion colors, look up color gamut, sRGB and AdobeRGB, and get to know what a color space diagram shows. I also suggest this article:

http://www.100fps.com/how_many_frames_can_humans_see.htm

which will give you some idea about what the human eye can see, and why people have different ideas about the limitations.)

;)

WOW is a disease. Symptoms include lack of social skills, greasy hair, muscle atrophy, sunlight aversions, and.....increased instances of hot girls avoiding you like the plague. ;)

The only thing I want to hear from Microsoft is that they are getting rid of "Games For Windows Live". I am tired of buying a game and having to go through all that crap before I can play it.

Such as? Logging in one time at installation for XBL? What is all the crap you have to go through?

3rd party software that I am blackmailed to use even though I have no interest in it whatsoever. I pay big money for games and I don't expect to have to install software on my computer that I DON'T want in order to play it. It's like buying a new car and having to sign in with "Mobil" or "Shell" before I drive it each time.

Ah, so the same nonsense people say about Steam, then? Got it, thanks.

So then how does having another program that's not part of the game help anyone? Why can't Steam just have you create an account to keep track of the games' licenses and then download the ones you buy? Why does a PROGRAM (that's again, not the game) have to be installed on your computer, or you can't play (nor even buy)?
