[GS] Microsoft: No Halo 4 for the PC - Page 26  

post #251 of 472
Thank you all for pointing out controllers are good for fighting games. Pretty sure this thread is about shooters though.

Armor lock ruined competitive play? Yeah, for the people who were not skilled.

This is probabaly the funniest thing I've ever read in regards to Reach's multiplayer. Armor lock basically ruined the game and that's really not an exageration. In fact specifically it ruined the game because it took skill out of the equation.

On top of that weapon bloom took away exactly what people liked about Halo's gunplay and completely changed it adding an element of randomness no one asked for.


And really you can disagree all you want but 343 would not have changed/removed these issues if they didn't see them that way. I call you fanboy because you keep defending issues with the game that basically every objective observer agreed were problems. You clearly like Halo way too much or don't know that much about it.

No, Fightstick > controller > keyboard for fighting games. There are a few respectable players who use the keyboard and are fairly good with it, but it there is a gap between them and controllers, and controllers and fightsticks.

Agreed.

FPS games, you still have a advantage on the PC movement wise and aim wise. I've actually played against a professional console team (They placed 4th at MLG CoD4) on LAN which was absolutely demolished by our team.

Guild Wars 2 is pretty epic. Not like PC doesn't have it's fair share of exclusives.

No, it's actually about Halo 4, not shooters in general, but as usual, when someone even mentions anything even releated to a console around here silly PC fanboys decided they want to start a PC vs Console fight in some form or another, etc.

Shame we cannot live in a world where the two can co-exist without all the bickering and snide comments. It's certainly more fun being a gamer of multiple platforms and enjoying a large library of games than being a gamer of just one exclusive platform and acting immature when a game liked doesn't come to the exclusive platform of choice. Must suck setting self standards so high that the smaller things in life cannot be enjoyed. I dread to think what sort of hidden gems some of these "gamers" miss because of their snobbery.

I'm pretty sure no one would argue that RTS and MOBA can never be touched by any other controller/console other than a mouse/PC combo.

Meh never really thought that they were going to do it anyways, their loss. rolleyes.gif
post #259 of 472
just watched a review for this game and it inspired a bit of nostalgia. it kind of makes more annoyed that this is going to be a 100% 360 game, since at this point there's no way i'm investing in a 360 (i don't even own a tv). i know they want to keep it an exclusive, but i don't see the point at this juncture. i mean if you're going to buy a 360 at this point you probably already have one, i doubt this is going to drive console sales.
post #260 of 472
Is there any single PC gamer that expected there to be a port...? Pretty obvious that M$ wants to have a title to try draw people to buy and play on their crapbox....

Unfortunately, it's not that simple. With the way most publishers/developers leave PC as an afterthought of course there's going to be a great disdain and heated arguments between pc and console. We're sick of being mistreated like we're all pirates, or because of their insatiable greed we're little more than an afterthought. The fact that FPS games are so widely popular on consoles now is having an effect on the PC versions. You can tell that a lot of it is designed with the console controller in mind. Let's not forget about how the limitations of the controller can affect the PC version by simplifying it. I think the COD franchise is a wonderful example of the PC version getting absolutely ruined by consolitis. Massive hitboxes coupled with gameplay that encourages more spammage than precision says it all.
