There's not much you can say, money wins and the video game business is very difficult it seems

This Bf3 troll comes into any topic just for an opportunity to troll the game, we get it you don't like it. But trolling at every opportunity especially when the thread is not even about bf3 is just sad.

EA is clearly trying something different here, especially after seeing how well BC2 sold on PC. You are just making assumptions now saying EA will do the same thing as ID. Go play caspian border and come back.

Agreed. I got sick of hearing him talk about RAGE at QuakeCon for two years.

Sorry but I am very pessimistic of the direction of PC gaming. I see games as only getting worse on PC as many devs and publishers do not want to invest money in making the PC a good product.

We shall see. EA has a long anti-PC friendly history with console ports, Securom 3-install limit DRM, and other acts against PC gaming are hard for many PC gamers to let go.

That is almost like going on an secluded island vacation with a serial killer. No thanks.
post #116 of 192
woah man, i can see how pc gamers think we're elitist from a lot of comments i see here now.

Its like everyone thinks every pc game is going to be perfect, it wont, they'll always be glitches, sure its easy to blame the devs, etc etc, and oh yeah they should test out their product, but at the same time we should know that stuff happens sometimes.

so many people just say pc gaming is dying just because of a couple of glitches, anyways, even if the big guys move for games towards consoles, to me that'd leave the door open for small devs to make the best games for pc, stuff consoles never got. etc.

Rage works on PC doesn't it? What exactly is the big issue for you to say you'll never buy a game from them again?

Seriously, all I've heard is some odd texture-popping glitch and that you guys don't have an ingame graphics option page. Is that a big deal to you? A little dramatic IMO. Do you think the console one works perfectly, zero problems?

Sigh.

It's that kind of half assed attitude that leads, within 2-3 games, to the end of a game developer.

It's alot worse than it sounds. This video shows it well. This guy plays rhythm games and is really good at them, and rarely complains about games being unplayable.

Oh wow that is pretty bad. Is that for everybody though? I also heard that was only with people that had ATI cards. As for the lack of graphics options you can still use a cfg file can't you?
