News Comments > GameSpy Shutting Down Services

GameSpy. Its use not needed in a world where game companies want to control everything.

No user run dedicated servers. No toolkits for modding. Servers shut down a year after game launch. DRM. You name it.

Welcome to the future.

Not like I was going to bother with Titfall anyway but why not Vista 64 bit?
Because you deserve to be dragged into the street and stoned if your still running Vista.

Best of luck, it sounded like a great story and premise, dragged down by crappy console gameplay design.

What I read, you need a controller to play otherwise get ready to be frustrated. Since I don't use a controller ... ever, there's no way I'm paying more than $5 or $10 bucks for poorly designed controls. There's a enough frustration in the world, without paying someone to frustrate me.
I will second this. Got it on PC at launch and the the fighting later in the game is maddening with KB&M.

Ubi has already been doing very good PC ports for some time. Nothing new here.
Only as long as you ignore that their PC ports come out MONTHS after the console versions.

Steven Spielberg to produce TV show based on 'Halo' video games. Exclusive to Xbox Live. MS will finally be able to court Halo fans.

How is it a TV show if it is only on Live?

"ReVuln doesn't report vulnerabilities to affected vendors. The company sells information about newly discovered vulnerabilities to third-party companies and government agencies as part of a subscription-based service."

Wow this sounds like a fantastic company. Rolleyes

Maybe new consoles are stronger than what the average fifa buyer has? I am guessing more than 95% of the PC Fifa customers have PC's that are not new. Or older than 3 years....

If you look at how many people have intel GPU's or cheap AMD/NVIDIA crap it's not surprising...
And that is a reason to hold back? Games have graphical settings for a reason.

HoSpanky wrote on May 15, 2013, 15:10:
Honestly, I'm all for configurable settings, but in a game where they built the character model/animations around a specific FOV...I can understand why they can't easily offer a slider.

You can say "they should just make it right", but if they have to actually rework animations for every possible FOV setting....that's unrealistic. They made the decision to go with in-world objects as your HUD, not magic floating indicator bars. That in itself is an impressive amount of effort, as you can SEE the bullets left in your clip. Most games would go for the easy option of an opaque clip and a little counter in the corner, and no one would cry about it. Altering EVERY ANIMATION your character or supporting ones can make simply to allow some players to widen the view is truly absurd. I don't hear people complaining that their real-world car of choice doesn't get wider just because they're fatter. I do think they should offer a demo so people can see what they'd be getting into prior to dropping fifty bucks or so on it.

They're trying something different. I applaud them for it, even if it makes a percentage of their customers ill from it (thank god, I don't have that issue). They're going to offer an option to alter the FOV, but it may not look right. That's fair, and Saluk made a good point that cutscenes should stick to the original FOV. If those cutscenes are in-game and don't pull you out of your location, however, it will also look odd and jarring at the beginning/end of said scenes.

While I prefer my games on PC, I do manage to have realistic expectations from games. I expect them to work, be fairly crash-free, and have proper controls. Expecting titanic changes from the versions aimed at a FAR less finicky crowd is again, absurd.

No one on here likes Justin Bieber, right? He's not going to change. There are millions of people willing to give him money to be what he is, why should he waste ANY part of his time worrying about those who complain about him? He should't. Developers who pay ANY attention to the PC crowd shouldn't be screamed at. Unless, of course, your ACTUAL GOAL is to have no games to play. If everything I presented to someone was scoffed at for something they didn't like, I'd STOP GIVING THEM ANYTHING.

If developers paid any attention to the forums on this site, they'd give up entirely on the platform. I GUARANTEE there isn't ONE SINGLE GODDAMN GAME that's been posted about on here that you guys didn't bitch and moan about over this perceived missing feature or that design decision. PLEASE, post YOUR games you have made, and see how this community treats you. They will shit all over ANYTHING you have made. Even if playing your game CURED CANCER, they'll complain that it didn't have high-res enough textures.
They made a decision to to bow to consoles then expect PC users to 'just deal with it' yet still shell out the same money when they are getting less service. How can you agree with that?

If it is hard to change the FOV because of models then they should not have used those models in the first place! They screwed up. I don't care how hard it is to fix. They dug their own hole and need to make things right.

And you think just because 'Developers who pay ANY attention to the PC crowd' get off scott free? They should not be screamed at? We should be ecstatic like little Timmy because he got something to eat? Gloriously grateful that we even get games? What stupid shit is this? I am to be happy I got something to eat even if its burnt to a crisp toast. SHUT UP AND EAT IT! YOU GOT SOMETHING DIDN'T YOU!

People are bitching because we were not treated like shit before. Now we are for no damned reason. Features that NEED to be part of PC games are being dropped left and right. If we do not voice these issues things will just continue to get worse and worse. You think PC gamers shit on everything? Guess what? We don't. We shit on games when the developers shit on us.

If changing the FOV would break all those things why not at least set the FOV to something well, not stupid?

Unless their point was to keep people like me from enjoying the game for more than 30 min at a time with a 2-3 hour break between sessions so we dont throw up.

Has a Tomb Raider game ever sold Halo 4 type numbers? Diablo 3 was a huge, huge release, and I think it only sold 6 mil out of the gate. They thought Tomb Raider was a game franchise on the level of Diablo? Yeah, their marketing team is smoking something.
Wow. Didn't realize their numbers were that... stupid. Comparing it to D3 really puts things in perspective. No way in hell TR was **EVER** big enough to pull in numbers like D3 did.
