On PC Bulletstorm

An article on Ars Technica talks about issues with the PC edition of Bulletstorm, the just-released first-person shooter from Epic Games and People Can Fly. This offers some gripes about the PC edition of the game, talking about unreadable text after switching to widescreen mode, lack of in-game graphics adjustments, a framerate lock, the use of Games for Windows LIVE, and more. The good news is they describe how many of these issues can be addressed by messing around in the .ini files, which they describe as "weakly encrypted." They don't actually give details on what to change or how, but say: "The various unofficial forums online have great advice for different video card set-ups. Don't look for critical thoughts on the PC version on the official site, however, as those are getting locked," but a later article offers more tangible suggestions. Thanks Joker961.

Well "reasonable" is relative, same as everything else. And if you don't think Blue's is generally much more negative than other gaming news blogs I have a bridge to sell you.

I'm a member of several communities just like this one, though this is the one I actually post in for the most part. Everywhere from Arstechnica to Somethingawful to Shacknews and so on. Blues is no more or less negative than pretty much anywhere else on the internet. Generally speaking people are more likely to air their negative concerns on the Internet than their praise anyway. The community not agreeing with a particular opinion doesn't say much about it in this context.

Well I don't use any of those sites. Of the forums and news blogs I frequent Blue's is much more negative by a factor of 10. If the sites you listed are similar well... I guess that just means they are too.

And for the record I am not saying that means this site sucks or anything, I obviously like posting here or I wouldn't do it. I like the people here and even when I disagree with them most are very intelligent and write their opinions well. A lot of times I am as pessimistic as they are, so it works out.

It is more negative than the usual internet though, in my experience.
