1 pointIn 2000, Windows Millennium Edition (known as Windows Me) was released. The operating system was bundled with a series of games, known now as Microsoft Internet Games. Composed of five games, Internet Backgammon, Internet Checkers, Internet Spades, Internet Hearts, and Internet Reversi. The biggest feature of these games was the ability to play these games with other users over the internet. While primitive compared to modern online gaming, it was one of the first introductions to online gaming for many users. Today, it was announced that the servers for Microsoft Internet Games for Windows ME and XP will be shutting down on July 31, 2019, while the Microsoft Internet Games servers for Windows 7 will be shut down on January 22, 2020. If you still have a PC running Windows ME or XP, will you be going back to play any of these games before the servers shut down?
1 pointMan I had a blast with EDF 4.1 on PC, was kinda miffed they didn't release 5 on PC at the same time as consoles. I was tempted to buy the DLC for the game in the meantime, but at least the sequel is coming out. It's very unfortunate that every Japanese publisher and their mother is adopting the Rockstar approach to PC. Edit: Apparently the top down shmup spinoff, "Wing Diver the Shooter", was released on PC last year, and strangely appears that this is the only western release of the game.
