How is it their fault your too cheap to buy a quad core?

Wow. I am absolutely sick to death of pc gamers bashing consoles! What is so wrong about them? They are built as budget gaming systems, they were never intended to be the sharpest tech on the market! I myself own an xbox 360, ps3 and my sig rig (decent gaming machine) and I regard each equally, but for different reasons. Love my xbox for online gaming, nothing beats halo for me. I love the shear power of PCs. And, well, my ps3 came with my tv but I still love it! Each have their advantages and disadvantages. But mindlessly bashing a worthy gaming platform is just useless. We're all in the same boat here, we're gamers.

And I know that all this is opinionated. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I won't try to force you to believe something. But what I'm trying to say is that bashing another platform won't get you anywhere. I respect that all you love playing games on your PCs, and maximizing the performance of your hardware and building you're own systems, so can you show some respect for people who might not have the cash to blow on a gaming pc? Or people who might PREFER playing on console? All this being said, there are a bunch of fanboy children that mindlessly play cod all day long on their consoles. They're just as bad, if not worse.

Anyway I think I made my point. And in regards to halo, although I used to think it should be on pc, I actually like it on xbox. There's something about the gameplay that simply wouldn't be as enjoyable on pc. Also, I know it's only a select few who are elitist snobs. Most of you guys rock and are what make this a great and friendly forum that you can count on for help and information with computers!

How was metal gear ruined by console? Its one of the best series (PS versions forget the crappy side stories on the hand helds)

Final Fantasy is an amazing series as well aside from the last 4 ****ty ass productions after square enix took over the series (11 - 14) 12 and 13 had to have crappiest story and 11 and 14 was easily ****ty.

Let alone those two games never made it onto the PC except FF7 and 8.

My config files are not the same as the ones in the guides. I can't turn off mouse smoothing

However, I can change FOV. But the lack of the options in the options menu makes it a port.

I'm not too cheap to do so, I'm getting bulldozer when it gets here. Most likely the best enthusiast model. Not gonna get a 1000€ CPU, but at most a 400€ one

My point was that it would not take more than my CPU to run it if it was done properly. The game plays so horribly because it is a port. Me buying a computer that can run it properly doesn't change anything, it still has poor performance for the hardware it's being run on. It would not be so if it was a native PC game.

One of my pc's is using actually the same hardware as you (PHII 550 and 5770), and has no trouble running BC2 @ 1920x1080 on high settings and a little bit of AA at solid 30 fps.

It even ran well with a phenom 1 9500 @ 2.2 ghz

What kind of resolution, or level of AA are you triying to use if you're not able to run it?

1920x1080 - no AA - no HBAO

It's fine in SP or empty servers.

It starts getting low FPS when there's some action going around me, making it difficult to aim. 20FPS when you are being shot isn't enough.

At one time, I myself had grown a little tired of the console bashing/debates that occur here very frequently. As I myself am a multiple console owner. Some of the remarks used to come off quite snobbish and well,....insulting to those who do have consoles. But over time, I've grown the ability to filter between ass clown comments and justified resentment. And yes, exclusive PC gamers do have legitimate reasons to have this resentment along with the right to voice an opinion.

Through my participation and observation here, I've come to realize there are two types of PC gamers (really, there are three but trolls don't matter.)

I think of these two groups as Sport cars and Stock cars (NASCAR.) Sport car drivers recognize and dislike the highway speed limitations, but can appreciate the opportunities that become available to release that horsepower. Sport car owners can share the road with economy cars...hell, even have one in the garage.

Then there are Stock cars, created for one thing alone and that's speed and performance. Ungoverned and raw power which knows no limitations other than what the driver has set. Equipped with the latest technology, balance, and customization to take advantage of any hidden power available and opportunity on the road. It shares the track with nothing other than cars of its breed.

.................enter the Pace car which overstays its welcome.

Ok, now that thats done with, CRYSIS 2. Also just about every FPS/RTS franchise that was originally for PC and moved to consoles or multi platform.




The better question is what games (which were not console exclusive/multi platform to begin with, read above) did consoles NOT ruin?

Id say the old mech combat style games, platformers, racing games, and CoD (console didn't ruin it, vivendi did... yes VIVENDI... look it up kiddies).

Looked it up,

Seems Vivendi is a backing company, i.e. they are the cash behind Activision/Blizzard, Activision is the publisher of the COD4 series
