@oldirtybearon: 'To put an example, this is as wrong as writing "Consoles" where "XBox One" should appear. No market share can excuse that bias.'

@evilnights: fortunately that didn't happen. I know there are worse things and I know there are diseases and poverty in the world causing people to die, but since this is a games forum I thought this could be relevant in this context.

@chaser324: I don't expect anything to change, but I just realized and I felt I had to say it. I think some people like @the_laughing_man may get confused due to this. I know changing it may be difficult at many levels, but maybe it's something to remind from time to time.

It's not really a bug of the site but something I've just noticed. Consider for example DOTA 2.

You can read it's available for PC, Mac and Linux. But if you go to the description of what a PC is you will notice a PC can run Mac or Linux, there are several operating systems for PCs!.

Therefore it should read Windows and not PC. The game is available for Windows and most probably not all Windows will be able to run it but only a few versions (although it's better to check the game requirements for that).

I agree that PCs are predominantly Windows, but identifying PCs with Windows PCs means biasing the language, being less objective and promoting Microsoft as the standard.

To put an example, this is as wrong as writing "Consoles" where "XBox One" should appear. No market share can excuse that bias.

Thank you for your attention.

It is possible to use XBox 360 controllers on PCs, or at least on Windows, I don't know about the compatibility with other operating systems.

Is there any information available about the possibility of using XBox One controllers on PCs?

Thank you.

Do bots on harder difficulties give you more experience than in casual difficulty or is it the same?

I'm speaking about in-game experience not "personal" experience.

Thank you.

@mcghee: thanks for the info. That sucks on the improvement side, but it's good on the standardization side. With that I mean it's not something I'll miss when playing in my platform of choice for the next gen.

I'm most probably not going to buy it, but I'm not going to boycott it either. I'm simply going to choose the best option (for me) and chances are xbone will not be that option.

@mcghee: we have seen a step in that direction with the triggers in xbone, if I'm not mistaken.

To me that's the best controller to date (at least in theory, by now), the controller is actually the only thing I like from xbone.

@ninnanuam: 1. steam may be the solution not because you can lend your games but because they are cheaper (and a more open model). To be truly open it should be possible to play on a steam box (aka PC, hopefully) games that are not on steam, which I guess will be possible, considering you could find some game available for PC that you want to play and is not on steam.

2. yes, the peak was reached and I blame casuals for everything after the peak, including the evolution of Nintendo to the blue ocean of casuals and microsoft going behind them with kinect, TV and skype. There is nothing wrong on watching the TV while you skype on your xbone, but *sigh* it was about games before.

I am surprised none of those sites are porn. Time ago that is what happened 90% of the times when writing a wrong a top level domain. It's like the Internet is becoming more mature, in the best sense of the word, I'm so proud of it.
