News Comments > Dead Space 2 PC Control Improvements

I hope that means fully customizable mouse buttons. I was so angry that I couldnt change the right mouse button to my control scheme. Fortunately I bought a mouse that has an awesome driver that could still let me customize the buttons and be assigned to the Dead Space exe.
Sensitivity/mouse lag was a problem too, but not really that bad.

If they make Social Club, GFWL or other similar crap requirement again for the PC, I really dont care if they port it or not.
I didnt buy GTA4 because of this, and I wouldnt buy this one either.

Well, who cares? If someone is that stupid to fall for Steam, he doesnt deserve better. No sympathy from me whatsoever.

Using ArmA 2 in Steam is like trying to drive a Ferrari Enzo with square wheels.

Because I dont pay for flash games that also have a sterile atmosphere. This one even offers less gameplay than the simplest flashgame. I rather play Gemcraft or something like that...

Call me spoiled from the 90s, I dont care. If this is what PC games you have to pay for are becoming, I rather switch my hobby.

Nightmares of hourlong WSG's?
Yeah I had those too once, but right now its nightmares about 8 hour long BG queues. Actually I stopped playing this game because of that.
Normally I played a lot of PvP and casually entered BGs before for a quick game, but after switching to horde because of friends it was just horrible. Even waiting for a WSG, AB or AV to pop up took 30 mins to 2 hours. Entering the SotA queue was completely pointless, because even after you got into a game after hours, Alliance players were never enough and the game was ended automatically. That mentioned 8 hours is no joke either. Happened every single day in the IoC queue (it was slightly better at weekends, but not much).

Judging from all the whining in the forums its not better in different Battlegroups either. Horde to Alliance ratio is just completely fucked since they added faction transfers. I really hope the next expansion fixes that, but since Alliance doesnt get any elves, I doubt that.

NS1 was pretty fun, if completely imbalanced.

Was it? I remember battles used to go on for hours in some games, that's how balanced it was. Well, that was until the latest updates where the devs made changes to make the rounds go faster, which ironically actually made the game much less tense and exciting - and more unbalanced.

Yeah it was quite balanced at the start and a lot of fun with games lasting up to 4 hours. But after a few patches it was horrible.
Games were as fast as CS rounds and if marines had a semi-competent commander and a few people who followed his orders then aliens had no chance at all. Even Onos and Fades were mowed down like nothing all of the sudden.

I really hope it will be more like the first few months of NS1.

Well, I just hope they balance all this new stuff well. Balance wasnt the strength of NS at the end, though.

News Comments > Ubisoft DRM Analysis

So thieves complain about games they dont pay for and that dont include draconian DRM, and legitimate customers dont complain about such things because they pay for being dragged through dirt after paying for their games?
That sounds... logical? Knife
Well, at least if you want totalitarian and unfair conditions, its logical, I guess.

I would really like to see people, who listen to opinions like that, to be confronted with PC sales that are nonexistent.
Too bad with all the bad news about this topic, there are still more than enough people who actually buy games like that.
In Germany its like the 9th week in a row with 3+ perma-internet connection requiring single player games in the Top 10 (most of them in the Top 5). Even more in the Top 20.

This isn't news -- they've announced that online validation would be required to play SP long ago. It sounds like it'll be a one-time check (unlike the UBI method where a hiccup kicks you out of your game) but it's still a pain. Of course, Blizzard is more likely, than UBI IMHO, to change it if it's a problem for a lot of customers.

Cant wait for my Internet to fail for a whole day again. I will still have SC2 to get the time over with in singleplayer!
Oh wait...

Its now at 1870. Guess its counting back to a timeframe they want to use for a new game.
I really hope it stops at like 500 BC.

Consoles and PCs have co-existed for decades and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. All of the alarmist crap is just fanboyism from both sides of the fence.

Funny, I think PC gaming is already as good as dead. Ive never bought so few PC games like the last 3 years and its getting less and less.
Sure, there will always be PC games, but for me those are already mostly nowhere near real PC games anymore. I doubt that in a few years it will be enough for me to justify buying a new PC regularly.

That DRM was very successful in making me lose my interest in PC gaming. The last "PC" game I bought was Mass Effect 2.

There are a few games I would like to see and play, but Im not holding my breath for them. Maybe Witcher 2, NS2, the ArmA 2 Expansion, but else I dont really care anymore.
And no, I am not going to switch to restricted and dumbed down consoles.

Looks like they learned from WoW/Blizzard.
Never bring true balance. Instead patch every now and then so people have to adapt every time again and keep playing.
