I'm a gamer.

I play shit on whatever platform I'm having fun on. Be it from Tetris back on the good old 1st gen Gameboy, Pokemon series on a 2Ds, Super Star Wars on a SNES, Sonic the Hedgehog on a Sega Genesis, Warhawk on the Playstation, Zelda on a N64, Halo on a Xbox, Metal Gear 2 on a PS2, Infamous on a PS3, All the Forza's on the 360, and just about everything else on my PC.
Oh and I have a soft spot for Are you Smarter then a 5th Grader on my Android Phone/Tablet, along with a copy of Minecraft for Consoles/PC/Tablet, even though my phone and tablet both have GTA3 on them as well.

Shut the fuck up, and quit worrying about what other people say and enjoy what you want, where you want it.

Absolutely pathetic that DICE can't get netcode right. Quake 3 got it right 10+ years ago, which meant Modern Warfare 1-3 got it right as a result. Now, any serious CoD player will know that ironically CoD:Ghosts also ruined their netcode, introducing the "you duck behind cover then die" and the "turn a corner and die instantly" phenomenon that BF4 suffers from.

Sigh...as if Battlefield and CoD weren't bad enough with derivative content...now both series can't even do netcode right (BF never could).

On the plus side, CoD:AW this year is by a very competent developer and can possibly redeem CoD netcode-wise and maybe innovation-wise. Still, boring!

I'm tired of unranked, totally anti-competitive FPSs. I'll take Destiny Co-op over BF and CoD nonsense.

Quake didn't have 64 players, upwards of 20 vehicles, destructible landscapes and enviroments. Oh not to mention a shitload more weapons.

I get your point, but when you compare Quake and CoD with alot more limited data you come across as a fucking idiot.

News Comments > Stolen Sniper Elite 3 Keys Banned
39. Re: Stolen Sniper Elite 3 Keys Banned Jun 29, 2014, 03:02 The Half Elf
 
Here's what bothers me. The link to the CJ whatever site saying that GMG keys were all revoked when they weren't.
Secondly if Rebellion was all about greed, why would they give away their latest game for free, knowing that the Steam Summer Sale was about to start?
Thirdly, does Rebellion even deal with the keys? Isn't that something a publisher would deal with?

And lastly, with all the fucking hacks going on (especially after the last Heartbleed one) is it really far fetched that a set of digital keys were stolen from a server/website/company, and turned around and sold them on the 3rd party shady company?

What Rebellion needs to do is say 'ok we had X amount of keys for X website, but were stolen/lost/whatever, and are showing up on X, Y and Z websites. Cause that way you know that 'X website isn't secure', and X Y Z are shady and shouldn't be used either.

Dear Epic,

You were relevant to the PC Gamers quite a few years ago and screwed us over for UT on Playstation, and Gears of War for Microsoft.
I left your shit in a cardboard box, on the curb, in the rain.

Take the hint.

When I had the 360 and Kinect, Kinect was awesome for voice controls for netflix, or any other non-disc movie playing. The ONLY other use for it I could find was watching my nephews play Kinect Party game.

Honestly I had no interest in the game until playing the retail version on the BF's nephew's computer and it's a fairly solid title. AI needs more brains, install size needs to be reduced, and more free maps, but I wouldn't say it was overhyped.

Personally I would say it's more a mix of Tribes 2, and Shogo.

Run speed/movement is designed for a slower tactical pace, but yet the rest of the game is high speed typical Battlefield.

20 bucks tops.

Minecraft on the consoles is arguably dumbed down anyway. It just hasn't affected the PC version so far which is the exception rather than the rule.

I want 2143. I don't give a shit about another Battlefield game with a bunch of whiny sidekicks (GTA5 is just as bad), in a story mode that they are trying to push on Hardlines to justify charging 60 bucks for a fucking mod.

And here's a great post looking at the tip of the iceberg....

Assassin's Creed Revelations

-August 2011: Surprise! No PC demo
-Actual release: December 2nd, 2011

Assassin's Creed 3
-February 2012: Assassin's Creed 3 announced for October 30th release
-March 2012: Ubisoft promises over and over and over again that October 30th includes the PC release
-June 2012: PC version delayed


Why does Ubisoft keep lying to PC gamers pretending like they're stupid enough to believe their version will come out at the same time as the console versions?

All the while, they strap on the most restrictive DRM ever created, claiming that it lowered piracy (without bothering to mention sales numbers)


Is their strategy working, focusing on console games, neglecting PC games, obviously delaying their games not for "polish", but because they don't want one to cannibalize the other?

Well, let's take a quick look at the numbers:

Ubisoft: First half - ~$127 million loss (after conversion). PC games make up 6%.
EA: Last quarter - $221 million profit. PC games make up 29% (non-GAAP), equivalent to the 360, ahead of all other platforms
Activision Blizzard: Last quarter - $335 million profit. PC games make up 7%, or 38% with subscriptions. Last 6 months - $838 million. PC games make up 6%, or 49% with subscriptions


What do you think? "

Christ, you'd really think you trolls tire of being wrong all the fucking time. But I guess when you're self-deluded that never occurs to you.

Cutter I hate to say this, but each version of Assassin's Creed has been graphically superior to their console counterparts including the Xbone and PS4 versions of AC4.

AC1 was held back to include DX10 features, and they have been including better and better graphical features in each game.

If I'm not mistaken, the latest AC4/Watch Dogs/Splinter Cell game came out at the same time as the console versions. And again if I'm not mistaken, AC3 and 4 had quite a bit of work put into the controls for mouse and keyboard (cause I sure as hell couldn't play the previous ones very well without a gamepad).
