At least they bothered to include pc tailored features unlike valve games, can someone tell valve is 2011 and there are newer options than dx9.

This already is the case in South Korea.
and the guys over at EC actually did a good piece in regards to this as well if anyone is interested: http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/pro-gaming


I don't know why this hasn't happened, something like MLG being on G4TV or MTV with live commentaries and such.

Who cares if they are using DX9? The quality of their games is still amazing. Valve doesn't have groundbreaking graphics but their gameplay is unmatched IMO. Also HL has just about the most amazing story ever as well (excluding that we still dont have an ep.3).

It has a 5 install limit too? Well, after i buy the game, i am sure i can find "alternative" means, if you know what i mean.

half life 3 is long overdue, I'm beginning to wonder if valve has abandoned the franchise altogether due to the fact that steam makes so much money selling 3rd party games...

So just because the games still run on DX9 it means they're not PC tailored? Maybe it's just because it's unnecessary..

I don't think they're abandoning the series. They probably want it to be the best it can be and keeping it a secret to build hype or to avoid a leaking incident like what happened with HL2, which showed the game in a very unfinished state.

Gabe, one of the few people with a large impact on the games industry who understands PC gamers. If only others (Ubisoft) would understand this reasoning...

If dx11 is so unnecessary why do people on these forums constantly whine at any game that doesnt have it, or whine at any games where it doesnt work right out of the box like AC, you can play it on dx9 and it will work fine. Too many hypocrites on this forum, that grant exceptions to some companies but severely penalize others. When I look at games like l4d or portal I cannot tell the difference between the PC and console version, in any aspect. Sure the games might be good, well at least portal and portal 2 but people here still get mad at good games unless they have dx11.

Yeah, because the witcher 2 isn't pc tailored AT ALL, since it is such a pathetic DX9 game rolleyes.gif

spoiler: DX9 or DX11 don't determine a game's quality. Valve doesn't need to include DX11 to make a game good, and neither does any other dev. TW2 and basically every valve game are shining examples of this

maybe because different people on the forum have different opinions? I don't care about dx version as long as the game is good. Some people disagree with me. I know, it's hard to believe.
