How many titles are done for both pc and x-box.

About the same if not less then ones for ps2 and pc.

i was so displeased since the ps1 by the amount of shit that can come up on consoles that i do not buy consoles.

Are you kidding me? Pcs have 100 times more peice of shit games then consoles. Tons of peice of shit clones from east europe, tons of value games that look like they could be ported to the super nintendo etc.

I will be surprised if nintendo lasts past the next nintendo console. They are the dinosaurs of the videogame industry, too busy making games like they did for the snes to realize why sony completely rapes them and microsoft will likely easily rape them next round. I almost never see non nintendo developed gamecube games on the top 10, for any months. Wonder how long that will last.

This just makes no sense to me.

It's quite simple really. The last sider man game didn't do too well on pcs, so instead of relesing the xbox port so only the hardcore would play it(most people that buy super hero games own consoles so wtf would they play it the pc for? Shit framerates and more bugs?), they released a version that maye some kids will buy for their shitty comp.

Makes sense to me, this will sell way better then a port of a game that most will buy on xbox. Why compete with consoles? You're going to lose everytime

Why don't all pc games sell great? Because unlike consoles, we won't buy every single game you wave under our noses.

Yeah while console gamers buy such peices of shit like metal gear solid, pc gamers buy such quality games as deer hunter and the sims.

The Game Cube price drop (and subsequent sales jump) pushed the XBOX out of the #2 spot in console sales.

Actually last month XBOX was #1 due to it's price drop.

What happened to the dreamcast?

A better question here is what happend to the PS2.Console and pc game sales continue to widen.

Shows like E3 should be open to the public that way people can have a clear picture of the state the industry is in.

Theres going to be a big gaming convention in New York..next summer I think? Not sure how many game companies will even bother to show up thoug..

I think consoles will be the one to ride into the sunstet. There simply won't be a need for them.

Yeah there wont be a need for them when pc developers end their release now patch so it's playble later mentality, and when theres standardization. Microsoft is starting this with trying to make a standard game controller but it wont be enough. You know how many people that have pcs and have been turned off of pc gaming because they see a game with xbox like graphics and try and play it on their $1500ish dell and it runs like shit? Alot, a whole lot. Unless theres a standard speed increase or something every few years like consoles, not many will give up their consoles that they know every game they will be able to play.


Not to mention how much comps crash for the average user due to inexperience, think that many people want to play buggy ass games on buggy ass computers?
10 years from now the consoles will be a thing of the past, and PCs will still be dominant.

Uhh "still" dominant? They have never been dominant in the first place.

It is quite apparent the differences with PC are constantly fading.

Only apparent to morons(you).

but since everything gets ported to PC eventually... why the fuck not?

Uhh no, only a small fraction of console games gets ported.

Kobalt, it comes down to one simple truth: you don't want DOOM 3 because you don't like any of id's previous games.

No, let's stop assuming shall we?

it is 100% certain that you will not like it because you don't want to like it.

Well im sure it is in your mind, in reality however..

I think you're just a flamer with some sort of "I hate id" complex.

Shrug you seem to think alot of things, cant help people that assume all the time.

I don't think anyone here said Half-life 2 sucked.

I don't think anyone said anyone did either.

but only because most of the people who play just want a quick dose of fun and not much haslle.
I agree that Multiplayer wont be very attractive to the average consumer, but then again the average consumer will buy the game mostly for its singleplayer.


This confuses me. First you agree most people dont like small deathmatch, then you say most people dont buy games for the multiplayer. Or did you mean most people that will end up buying the game wont do it for the 4 player dm? Thought that was obvious.


What I AM doing is, Im trying to change some peoples attitude to post random bullshit about a game that isnt even out, instead of trying to asses the value of a game on what little we know about it.

You poor naive soul, you rarely can ever change peoples attitude, let alone over the internet.

Comparing DOOM3 with Resident Evil? Maybe some parallels with the film, but the PC versions were poor, even for their time. Comparing a shoddy console port with predrawn graphics to a state of the art FPS? No comparison can be drawn.

Heh im not the one that started comparing doom 3 to resident evil, I was replaying to someone else post.

Since the majority of people to who I've shown the E3 DOOM3 video, go "christ that's amazing!",

Majority of what? People you have shown the game? Shit most people I know like anime but that doesn't mean it's mainstream.

Kobalt: What is your reasoning behind the opinion that DOOM3 is so bad? State your case. You said the graphics are shit, but why?

Personally I couldn't give a damn about the graphics really, im just sick of so many generic first person shooters and I dont think Doom 3 is going to be any different.I want another tribes, I want another half life etc, not the orginal doom with pretty graphics.

I have no idea why you think the enemies are designed terribly they look very good to me.

Differences of oppinion.

This is a tottaly subjective view here and is totally biased,

Oh wow because I dont like something you do im biased?

You will have 4 player multiplayer available OUT OF THE BOX

See, I like to base a game on it's merrits, not what it might have later.

for Deathmatch purposes 1vs1 is enough for everyone's needs.

No, if this was the case all dm servers would be 1vs1, which is actually rare.

And like I pointed out, their technology was behind when ti was released, because id had already set the pace.

Uhh..wanna compare some quake 2 ss to unreal again?

Actually, the GameCube is a very advanced system.

I was referring to various things like nintendo focusing on the gimmicky Gamecube to Gameboy connectivity while everyone else is focusing on online.Not to mention their strange love of cartridges etc..

They had some interesting game modes, but they were ruined by the retarded weapons that made no sense.

Funny, I dont remember anyone saying that in all the assualt matches I played in.

UT was just a Quake 2 clone with more modes and cheesy weapons. It didn't have the fast pacing that Q3A did.

A clone..with different modes, different weapons and a different pace(this might come as a shock to you, but not everyone loves quake 3s pace], but it's a clone..oook and quake 3 on the other hand that was no different from quake 2 besides it was a bit faster was original.

Tribes was a POS game. Don't even get me started on that.

Even if you didn't like the game it was unique, which cant be said for most games.

Do you have anything to back this up?

I would if I could find 4+ year old game articles that I had no idea what the name was. Some old interview.

the graphics (that includes models and textures) weren't as good.

Heres a ss of an outdoor quake 3 map:

Heres one of UT

best I could in a min with google image search but ut = much more beautiful.
