PC Gaming Alliance Still Exists

The PC Gaming Alliance announces that HAWKEN publisher Meteor Entertainment is the newest member of this industry trade group. This also serves as a reminder that the group is still in existence, as the public is not privy to much information about its day-to-day activities. Update: Snarkiness aside, a True PC Gaming podcast from last month speaks with Intel's Matt Ployhar, the PC Gaming Alliance president. Word is: "Matt talks about piracy, EULA and the misconception of PC gaming cost."

The fact that Epic was the founding member of this group immediately relegated it to "rather bad joke" status, but their actions Rotfl since then have only strengthened that perception.

Huh You are aware of the various versions of the Unreal Engine and the many PC games it has powered yes?


I have no issue with the Unreal engine (though let's face it, the sole reason it's done as well as it has is because it's available on all major platforms. If it was a PC only engine, it would have died a rapid death, because it really isn't that impressive an engine.)

I have an issue with Epic's attitude towards PC gamers. They have made it clear, multiple times, that they'd really much rather there was no such thing as PC gamers anymore, and that they could just forget about the platform altogether.

And then THOSE fuckers turn around and form the "PC Gaming Alliance." Right around the same time when they were telling PC Gamers to stop whining that their PC ports sucked.

In any case, Fuck Epic.
