Neverwinter arrives on the Windows Store for Windows 10

    
35
Of course, then you get reminded about the setting.
Those who have already upgraded to Windows 10 have been dealing with the usual issues of a new operating system and associated irritations, including the built-in Windows Store. It’s like Steam, except it doesn’t have most of Steam’s games on it and it’s built-in. Also, it’s going to have Neverwinter in its lineup.

No exact date has been announced for when Neverwinter is being added to the storefront; considering its console edition on Xbox, it’s a logical port of call, and it’s another way to download and play the game for people who have resisted the dozens of other ways to jump in and play the game. Consider it a bit of a bonus if you’re actually browsing for games on the Windows Store, then. There are also some screenshots below, if you’ve somehow never heard of the game and want to see what it looks like.

Robert80 Jack Pipsam Armsbend DugFromTheEarth A slow support from indie devs due to a push from Steam because they were at the time feeling threatened by the Windows store is not a sign that Linux will suddenly become something people will want to use.
There’s many things fundamentally with it that people just don’t want to deal with.
Steam OS hasn’t changed the game, Steam Machine’s has done nothing and Adobe still hasn’t supported it (free open source software is great, but it cannot hold a candle to Photoshop or Première).
Even if you look at something like humble bundles, people claim they want more Linux stuff, but they’re always like 4% of users.
The idea that Linux will somehow soon take over Windows is frankly ludicrous.
I am not saying Linux is terrible, it has its place and for some people it’s the perfect OS. But for most of us, it’s useless on an end-user level.

Ive dabbled with Linux ever since 1995.

“linux is getting more support” has been something said even way back then. And while todays amount of support is greater than 1995, its still not anywhere near 100%.

People dont want to find out “Oh, you cant do this” or “Oh, you can do this, but you have to jump through 15 different hoops to do it”. That is why consoles are more popular than PCs. Zero hoops to jump through.

Linux (and macs) are not going to be in that 100% club any time in the near future. Lets hold a follow up conversation in 5 years, things could be improved by then. But for the for the next couple years, its not a desired alternative for most.

Nordavind Robert80  I haven’t… I refuse to upgrade.
However, my friends have:  had errors with recognizing drivers, had crashes, had memory leaks that resulted in not being able to run programs, had the ui rearrange their desktop, had problems with video resulting in extremely small resolutions, had problems with ui errors resulting in the system needing to reboot, and probably some that I am forgetting.
All of which means I don’t really want to worry about it, given that my current system is relatively stable.

Jack Pipsam Armsbend DugFromTheEarth  Except Linux IS getting more and more support from developers.  Along with Mac.
I’m not sure that your statement will hold true for much longer.

DugFromTheEarth paragonlostinspace   Ok, gotcha DFtE. I’ve not seen any real issues with number 2 but number 1 and your connection issues or those on the bullshit data cap plans I could see might have an issues.

aboomwithaview Nordavind Yeah Realtek also has had some issues for me as well, like Creative Labs and some wifi issues as well. Overall they’re minor but they were annoying.

Nordavind I have had a few issues with the Windows 10 upgrade. We’ve got two desktops, six laptops and three  tablets. The problems over all weren’t all that big and most of them I was able to fix but I did run into a few. Mostly they were in regards to sound drivers, I’ve lost a lot of respect for Creative Labs for example. 

 These aren’t by and large lower end systems btw. I did adapt since I have been doing this particular dance for decades. Overall though it wasn’t really painful and they were minor in nature and just annoying. And again I place the blame on things outside of Microsoft’s control.

pcgneurotic Nordavind I am not contesting that people have had issues with Win10. No operating system in history can claim “no issues” on any level, be it from HW or SW compatibility, PEBCAK or “it’s not what I’m used to so I don’t like it”-issues. The Win OSes people still cling to, be it 8, 7 or XP (I hope no one clings to Vista ;)) all had their issues for some.

But this is simple deductive reasoning:

1. Those who have already upgraded to Windows 10 have been dealing with the usual issues…
2. Nord has already upgraded to Windows 10.
3. Therefore, Nord has been dealing with the usual issues.
Which I have not. “Some” or “Some of  those” would be an entirely different matter. Granted English is not my mother tongue, but without that clarification ‘those” would be the same as “all of those”. At least it is in my language.

I really like Windows 10, been using its first day of public release. I honestly haven’t had any problems with the OS. It’s fast and my PC hasn’t run better since I first built it.
The Windows Store is another matter. I hate their downloader, I hate that you cannot record it easily or do backend stuff as naturally.
That said, I might try and download Neverwinter on it just out of pure curiosity.
PS. I wonder if this means that Xbox crossplay will come into it as some point.
