And that's not including the upgrade.
After months of simmering in preview, Windows 10 has arrived. For anyone who would rather not wait for their upgrade (as they are going out in waves), there is a way to get the upgrade faster. (See a guide at VentureBeat, and be sure to have some free hard drive space) But once the upgrade is done, then what?
Well if you are an Xbox One owner, now's a good time to try out game streaming from the Xbox One to Windows 10 via the Xbox app. Just be sure (unlike me), that the Xbox app is up to date (version 7.7.29027.00000) or else risk not even having the game streaming option. I was streaming 'Strike Force Zero: Director's Cut' and 'N+' (via 360 backwards compatibility) over a wired network, and everything was very playable. The app can run in a window, just hover in the right corner and click the diagonal arrow button.
On the other hand, for anyone who wants to dive into PC gaming with Windows 10, the Xbox Wire has put together a list of ten ground-shaking games that could make great first options.
Here's the list:
'League of Legends'
'World of Warcraft'
'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt'
'Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft'
'Diablo III: Reapers of Souls'
'Grand Theft Auto V'
'Sid Meier's Civilization V'
This list is of course a murderer's row of games that have dominated PC gaming recently with some spanning a decade or more of importance. My current choice is easily 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,' but this is just the tip of the iceberg. One pick not on this list is 'DotA 2,' which is a great choice considering that the International 'DotA 2' Championships are next week. Another title missing from this list is 'Batman: Arkham Knight,' and hopefully, Windows 10 (and dare we say DirectX 12) will be worked in with the necessary fixes for Rocksteady's latest.
