News Comments > MW2 Stimulus Package Interview
10. Re: MW2 Stimulus Package Interview Apr 5, 2010, 13:59 Overon
 
It's a map pack!

Remember the voices who rattled off reasons why MW2 is bad for pc gaming. There is no publicly released client/server, no mods. Well now you have a case in point. If you control the entire platform then you don't allow free stuff. You can now charge for additional content, including map packs.

Remember when map packs were updates you got for free? Remember when maps used to be created by the community and would sometimes be more popular than the developer maps? Remember those days? Now IW who got their start as a company in the PC gaming market, try to monotonize everything they can. Remember all those Call of Duty mods and maps and mods back on the PC? Well guess what, no more free maps for you.

The game is a true PC game, designed for the PC in mind. You just couldn't do a game like this on the console.

However there are still a lot of rough edges. They have the talent to fix up the game's interface for example. I wish they would do that. Hopefully they will do that in the next one.

I guess the lesson here is that even if you do thing for free and with good intentions, in the end that's not a big factor in a big company's decision making.

Maybe I don't understand, but form the limited information that we have, I would say that it was wishful thinking to announce MW4 free release before it was a done sure deal.

We are working really hard to make sure that key features such as user-defined resolutions, interface and both keyboard and game pad control sets are all up to the standards for today’s discerning PC consumer.
This is now a special treat whereas before it was par for the course. Don't forget the aspect ratio cutoff problems and\or low FOV issues that is now par for the course for console to pc ports.

EA/Dice strikes again. History repeats itself. Everyone should know what they will get from EA/Dice by now unless they have short memories.

Actually the science of HFCS and sugar says there is no difference healthwise. But there is a taste difference because table sugar and HFCS can have different ratios of glucose to fructose. See here for more information:

Let that be a lesson to you, stop paying extra for "black" and "special" and "collector's" editions.

Ubisoft: "For Assassin's Creed 2 we would like to compensate you for not being able to play the game due to server down time, by giving your more Assassin's Creed 2 which we would like to compensate you for not being able to play the game due to server down time, by giving you more Assassin's Creed 2...

Infinite while loop. This like giving a month of free fuel as compensation for a car that won't start. You can't use the DLC when the game won't run because the servers that allow it to run are down.

About Bad Company 2 downtime:

It saddens me that some PC gamers have such short memories. This is EA/DICE the same EA/DICE that couldn't patch their way out of a web paper bag in Battlefield 2 and 2142. They are totally incompetent. It's like they have some competence when initially writing code, but then that competence disappears as soon as the game is released and they can no longer fix bugs and instead introduce new ones. Senior coders go on vacation, while the junior coders are left to try to fix code they don't understand.

Infinite while loop. The attacks on Ubisoft servers will continue to demonstrate a point, and I think that this will only strengthen it. They are attempting to buy their way into the gamer's hearts. There is a better way to do that and everyone knows what that way is.

There are so many better PC games that don't have these always online DRM requirements. Buy and play those, not these.

Eh, kind of, it's fun for a little while, but I can't play for any great length of time, I get bored eventually.
At least you are consistent. I was about to tear you a knew one if you said you loved Diablo based on your criticisms of the combat in Witcher.
