OBS / Windows 10 Error - Could not initialize DirectX 10 on Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500
Many of you probably aren't streaming off a laptop with Windows 10 but, if you are and you're getting a similar error, I found the fix was to update the 64-bit version of O
to the latest version and restart your machine. I had been using the 32-bit version of O
for a long time and hadn't run into this issue until the last Windows Update. I'm assuming they updated a driver that caused this to happen.
Anyway, this solution worked for me and the issue didn't occur on Windows 8.

Atari debuts their first product, Pong, on this day in 1972!
The New Steam Controller
Thought this looked pretty snazzy. The new Steam controller packs controls from various devices like a trackball, mouse cursor, scroll wheel, analog stick, etc., so you can play pretty much any game with it, even if the game didn't originally have controller support. It retails for $49.99 on their website and at GameStop locations. More info at http://store.steampowered.com/app/353370/

Star Wars Battlefront is awesome!
This game just came out yesterday. Being a huge Star Wars fan, I had to get it. I haven't played the campaign yet, but the multiplayer games are incredible! It has a ton of fun game types and takes me back to the old Halo days and even as far back as Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64. Pretty cool. Have you seen or played it yet? Thoughts?
How do you feel about no split screen in Halo 5?
Don't know how many Halo fans are out there in the community, but how do you feel about having no split screen in Halo 5? I see the advantages and disadvantages of both sides. It's nice to have your buddies over and play a few campaign co-op and multiplayer games, crack open a few beers, and have some fun. But how often does this actually happen now-a-days? With technology allowing us to play with the same people full-screen from everyone's own home, it makes sense to add 60 FPS to keep up with the times, right? Or is that one of the things that's made Halo so great over the years is the ability to play the game with friends in person on one console? And, since we've been okay with the previous 30 FPS for so long, why make the switch? Do you think maybe the gaming industry is trying to capitalize off of selling more games and consoles?
There has been speculation that 2-player split screen will be available in some game modes, however, that information has changed over the months, so it seems we won't really know until the game is released next month. Maybe they'll surprise everyone with split screen to help redeem themselves from the Master Chief Collection release issues last year. Who knows... Personally, whatever ends up happening, it's not going to make me like or hate the game even more or less. But I can't speak for everyone and I know there are a lot of people upset over this decision.
What do you think about it all? 60 FPS over split screen gaming or play with your buds on the same console?
