More Xbox games are heading to Steam, and probably Epic Store too

Xbox Game Pass is coming to Windows 10, but many questions remain

"Our intent is to make our Xbox Game Studios PC games available in multiple stores, including our own Microsoft Store on Windows, at their launch". Instead of trying to push the UWP format against all odds, Microsoft switched its strategy by opening up: give Win32 games full support on the Microsoft Store, make more of its games available on third-party PC game stores, and introduce a PC gaming subscription service that delivers games by Microsoft and other game publishers.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox and all gaming at Microsoft, announced changes today that change Microsoft's approach to gaming on PC fundamentally.

'Should be banned': Rafa Nadal sparks weird French Open controversy
After watching Nadal's dominant display, Courier was asked if Djokovic would be coming onto to court with a point to prove. I was, like, "You've got to do something".

Users could buy apps or games there, and the competition was anxious that Microsoft's ownership of Windows gave it an unfair advantage over the competition. UWAs are not almost as open to modding, overlays, or tools like ReShade, and have been largely unpopular with PC gamers who care about those features. The commitment follows on the March announcement that Halo: The Master Chief Collection would be coming to Steam and the Windows Store. More than 20 titles are on the way to Steam, beginning with Gears of War 5 and Age of Empires I, II & III: Definitive Editions.

"Enabling gamers to play together, through cross-platform play and cross-network play across Windows 10 PCs and console, is vitally important". The company is not only bringing several of its games to Steam, relinquishing them from Windows Store purgatory, but it's also bringing its Game Pass to PC now.

Microsoft is well aware that the Microsoft Store did not become the go-to place for all things gaming or even applications. Now the company is acknowledging its previous missteps, and says it's embracing the kinds of choices that PC gamers have always preferred.

Games from Microsoft's own studios, including recent acquisitions Obsidian and inXile, will be available on Xbox Game Pass for PC on the day they're released, just as they are on Xbox One. While not mentioned by name, the elephant in the room here is the Epic Games store.

Severe thunderstorms possible for Memorial Day
With storms returning on and off Saturday through Monday the humidity returns with highs in the low-mid 80s and lows in the 60s. Wednesday calls for a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 8 a.m. with partly sunny conditions and a high near 88.

If anybody prefers to buy their games on the Microsoft Store, well, you can keep right on truckin'. With a slate of new game modes and improved skating mechanics, you can cool down your summer on the ice.
