61. Re: No Ghostbusters PC Multiplayer Jun 15, 2009, 15:48 Z9000
 
Sims 3 is the only PC game where this has been really obvious. Console games aren't immune to it either. SF4 forced you to pay to unlock costumes that were already on the disc. RE5's multiplayer mode was the same. It's a trend that's consuming the whole industry and isn't limited to PC.

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.

Everyone? There are only a few games that require Steam and a few that require Impulse. 95% of PC games don't require you to login to anything.

You don't answer my questions, you cut and paste portions and misconstrue what I say, and now make up totally ridiculous statements like this.

Example:

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...

I haven't seen anything to suggest that these games will be bigger hits than the previous attempts at MMO on console. And I'm pretty sure they'll all be more successful on the PC.

FF14 is probably the best positioned to do this. Especially since the FF11 PC version was disasterous. It's something to watch.

@Dots - No
