Skynet is migrating to your PC.

No this is very odd, I have no idea what is going on there. A restart would be best, I wonder what happened for it to show such a large size?

EDIT: If it really is that large and not a visual bug as mentioned below.

Is that a visual bug or is this game really 250GB? Or does it need to reserve 250GB? The hell is going on in that screenshot?

It's a fucking NIGHTMARE. Yet another Windows Store bed shitting. Who the fuck is running the Win Store? They need to be placed in another position whoever they are. They've failed so completely it's case study worthy. There has been fundamental issues since Win 8 store. That was years ago.

And before the shills come in, I'd beg anybody to check out ANY WinStore or cross buy thread. They're chock full of enthusiasts who can't figure out what the fuck is going on. Only the once in a blue moon ports like Batman can match their issues.Fun thing is that you can't even play single player once it knows there an "update".

The irony on top of all this is that it's one of the best ports I've seen in the last year. And top of the line for a dev that isn't PC focused.

And yes I do own it, my gamertag is posted if anybody thinks I'm just trolling.

When it was heavily rumoured that the Windows Store version of CoD: Infinity Warfare would not be crossplay with the Steam version, there was this one guy who claimed that was impossible, that the game would FOR SURE have crossplay, that it would be stupid not to. He was 100% certain that the game just HAD to have crossplay. Then it was confirmed that it didn't. The screenshot showing that there were like 4 people online appeared. Even Microsoft started refunding people because there was no one playing. And that one guy who claimed the game WOULD FOR SURE HAVE CROSSPLAY BECAUSE IT WOULD BE STUPID OTHERWISE just vanished from the thread if I remember correctly lol. I may be wrong, but I don't remember him in the thread after that
EDIT:
He did eat crow. See below.

While unintentional, it's more like a feature at this point as the wheels have been falling off for over a year now. Microsoft has been plodding along with small improvements to UWP but completely neglecting the store itself.

I recall not being able to update Gears of War 4 as I would get an error every time it tried to install after downloading it. The same thing happened to all the other Windows store apps.

Thankfully I was able to play the game without that damn 10gb update and uninstalled it immediately after completing the campaign.

Saying the Windows store sucks is a vast understatement.

Had the same with the initial install of Forza Horizon 3. Ended up having to reformat as all the refresh options, including full reset and even redownloading the W10 image and installing that via the command prompt wouldn't do it.

It's a bug they never seem to fix. It happens less than it did 2 years ago though, so yay?. A little bit less.

Windows Store feels like a SAW challenge. The moment you try and get it working you're deep in the weeds, forcing downloads through scripts and then verifying them and praying they pass. Getting any sizable game to run and properly update, especially on a non-boot drive, feels like punishment. I've dealt with this on 4 freshly wiped PCs. I grew up dealing with 16-bit Windows fuckery, and this is worse.

Even fresh, stock with certified non-beta drivers or anything non-stock wouldn't pass whatever blood ritual the store needs to authenticate the integrity to bless us with the games we've purchased.

I know it's interpreted as anti-MS to call them out for this shit. But what the fuck? Do they expect people are gonna want to migrate to their abortion of a store from either win32 or some tablet OS? I know it's conspiracy to suggest this fuckery with large apps, which at this size are mostly games, is meant to push people to an Xbox One, but it sure feels like they're fixing issues at a glacial pace.

The same shit we had in Windows 8's store are happening. Oh, and the error messages and their references are so empty and useless they might as well skip the code, and not make us waste our time to look it up. A simple "fuck you, good luck" would pass along the same message without anybody having to waste their time researching or providing a competent product.

Hmm well pc gamers that don't own a xbox one can chat with console owners?
but yeah it really is better when you own both pc and xbox one.
They even have savegame sharing!
And streaming console exclusive games to pc.

NEVER pause a large WinStore download unless you don't mind re-downloading the whole thing. In my experience it picks up where it left off about 50% of the time at best.

Oh and here's a fun kicker; if the app got an update mid download, no matter how small the update, you get to start over again. From zero.

The fact that a huge number of people have issues downloading large files/games off of MS's store, on MS's newest OS is fucking shameful. If I was in charge of overseeing this as department head I'd be fucking horrified and embarrassed.
