No Ghostbusters PC Multiplayer

A post on Ecto-Web analyzes the Ghostbusters: The Video Game specs, pointing out that Windows is the only one of the game's platforms other than the DS that's not getting multiplayer co-op, a shortcoming that's also highlighted on Co-Optimus. Thanks Gary.

@Dots - No
No, what? It's a horrendous, illogical argument you made there. It's barely an argument at all, more of an uninformed rant.

It's apparently a business plan from here on out. Now we get to buy disks with a portion of the content.

Costumes and stuff? Who cares? That is optional DLC stuff, I am talking about the entire 2nd city in the Sims 3 game.
I want you to actually explain what this crap is. Why exactly is going online and getting free content and features a bad thing in the Sims 3? Do you realize that My Beautiful Katamari, a console-only title actually had paid DLC that unlocked stuff on its disc? You didn't download anything but a modified configuration file to unlock something that you already had on your disc. In a console game. For money.

Are you even kidding me, the two aren't anywhere on the same level, what does PC gaming have to do with it when consoles started it?
Me: WHY would I want to pay 1k-3k for a rig to put up with crap like that?

You: $1-3k? Seriously? If you buy a $1000 PC today, it'll last you for a very long time. It'll also do more than any console can. A $3000 PC is just a waste of money.

WTF? I mean really. How does an opine about PC prices address my question? You do this all the time...
Put up with what 'crap'? Steam? A very convenient program packed with useful features that takes up 10 megabytes out of your 4000 megabytes of RAM at most? A program that made me basically stop buying games retail because of how fast and easy it is so now I buy them on Steam?

Put up with what exact "crap"? Autopatching? A convenient IM client and a browser accessible from within games? Is it supposed to inconvenience me because I'm not on the internet all the time due to having a laptop? Yet I play games fine because the offline mode works perfectly and with basically no limitations.

There is no "crap" involved, there is only you trying to spin console fanboism and FUD concerning DRM into a tale of how modern PC gaming "fucks over its clientele" when nothing of the sort actually happens outside of your vivid imagination.
