Three security questions and answers/ Password/ picture password/ pass code because passwords are outdated don't you know/ phone number/ credit card for ms account, did I miss any don't worry there is no telling which one ms will ask for because silly people have issues remembering a single password now they can remember all of the security requirements

Assuming that is correct, and it has proper LAN co-op which it looks like, I will probably get it eventually. Likely not until halfway through next year though since I have too many games in line between now and then.
I don't think you will need any of the live service crap if you run the steam version. You will need an MS/Xbox acount, though.

kennyparker1337 Does anyone know if you can play co-op online with one person on PC and the other on Xbox One?

oh man. i don't think geocities lasted 10 years when yahoo bought it in '06; it had better groups too. geocities and ICQ; the social media of the later 90's. previously was usenet and IRC.

and yeah, speaking in HTML, good times. but mind you, win95 w/frontpage express (and all wysiwygs) helped nail the coffin lid.

well the latter can be an acceptable argument if there is some basis but looking at that i made no mention of using an MS account, NOPE. read carefully about "bloat ware" in my post; what features i may or may not find useful to me in win10 and their removal has absolutely nothing to do with what account i am logged into.

see i figured by your post you made an error. but unlike you, i thought i'd asked to be sure instead of jumping off the cliff like an idiot.

and btw, i'm sure my hotmail account is older than you so yeah, stay off my lawn.
