1 Not sure how you feel about the Microsoft store, but the Outer Worlds will apparently release there too.

2 On the bright side, I'll have a whole year to find out if the game's any good.

3 The i7-6770HQ had 72 EU (Iris Pro 580) and, while it was better than the 24 EUs in the regular Skylake chips (HD 530), didn't come close to matching a real video card's performance, so I'm a bit skeptical.

4 You're right, I forgot that configuration existed.

So Gen 11 is really just Iris Pro 580 (GT4e) with 8 EUs disabled.

The Microsoft Store is a bit of a mess right now, though Microsoft's recent drive that includes the expansion of their game developers portfolio also promises to remedy that.  We shall see.

But at least The Outer Worlds has an alternative to the Epic launcher.  I backed for the physical copy of Phoenix Point, so I was pissed when they made it a timed exclusive to Epic.  And while Julian Gollop is right that the Epic launcher is not needed to play the game, you do need the launcher to install the game - even if you have a physical copy!  Of course, you have assume that a man and a developer who already lied to your face once is not lying to your face again about the wonderful new world of Epic.

It really seems like a matter of time before Epic and preferably Tim Sweeney, get charged with cybercrimes...

Unfortunately, it was more like early onset senility.  I am pretty sure those stray letters came from just before I started typing out semi-coherent words, and right after I had hit the 'enter' key a few times.

8 Re:  Intel's "Gen 11" GPU:  from PC Perspective" with its 64 EUs (execution units) and other improvements providing up to a 2.67x increase over Gen9".
2.67?  That suggests a nice improvement, but it's an oddly...specific...num--wait a sec.  *fires up Calculator* 24 * 2.67 = 64.08.

9 Yep.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
