News Comments > Ubisoft: Play Assassin's Creed 3 PC With A Controller
52. Re: Ubisoft: Play Assassin's Creed 3 PC With A Controller Mar 28, 2012, 15:02 Tumbler
 
Not everyone is able to use a controller or shares your love of them, as has been explained several times already.

Who is not "able" to use a controller? It's built for two handed humans.

That being said games on the PC don't need to live and die by keyboard and mouse controls. I don't think I want capcom building the next street fighter around using a keyboard and mouse. I understand that if I want to play that game a controller is functional but a fighting stick is ideal. (And a keyboard sucks)

I don't want DCS to build that new Mustang Expansion or whatever so that keyboard and mouse are the best solution, I want them to focus more on HOTAS controls.

I may want forza 5 to focus on contoller and wheel support but I'd hate to see them build it around a keyboard and mouse...the fuck would that play like?

It's silly to demand anyone making software on the PC must make keyboard and mouse controls a priority.

If anything you should say thank you for being open and honest about this so that you don't buy it only to find you need a controller after the fact.

Case in point if you care about this Go Buy a Controller.

You have cheaper options as well if you don't mind long cords.

Cross platform games like this should play with a controller on the pc the same way they do on consoles. (would prefer same FOV as well) I want my super console experience when I buy these games. Don't screw it all up by building old school pc controls like it's somehow going to work when the entire game was designed around the controller to be played on a big screen tv.

Well that's too bad. I thought this was going to be worth buying, sadly not. Maybe they'll update that Anno 2070 game and remove that and put it on sale on steam around the time this comes out. Seems like plenty of games coming out lately that have features that could be removed and sold later so it's easy to pass on crap like this today and pick it up clearance later.

I don't see why people get so upset about a console game needing a console controller. Even if it's on the PC why does this really bother anyone? If you make a flight sim you will likely enjoy it more with a joystick. If you make a driving game you'll likely enjoy it more for with a wheel. (or a joystick or gamepad)

I like the option of playing these games on the PC with a controller. Loved Deus Ex PC with a controller, loved Skyrim PC with a controller. I'm guessing this won't be a $35 sale as deus ex was or as awesome as skyrim was so unless they offer a significant discount and ship it without always on DRM I don't see any of this mattering.

360 game for me.

Hmm, not that interested in a shooter...
*Watches Video*

I can BUILD MY OWN SPACESHIP!? SOLD! ($6)

That should be splashed across the top of this page, build your own space ship shooter!

Oh and Protip, I would have contributed to this from the start, having little interest before watching the video, if you'd simply said "Available on Steam". With small games like this you're making it soooo much easier to buy if you simply say Steam. Without steam I have to download files and install crap, with steam I just copy paste a key and steam does the rest.

Bally's in Las Vegas is a pretty good location on the strip for walking to other Casino's. If there is some kind of special rate for attending might be worth it just for a fun weekend. They might stick everyone on the same floor though...so...yeah...Lotta dudes....not a lot of showers.

Sad that this company has a strong enough franchise to keep them going while they experiment with how much inconvenience gamers will put up with and still pay them.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Free Weekend

I think once they have a dozen warzones or play, instead of 3..., I'll be interested in giving it another shot. Crazy to think they have very decent pvp but no levels to play it on.

The legacy system apparently will allow you to jump to the end for a mirror class character. So if you played to lvl 50 Sith you can get a lvl 50 Jedi? That sounds like fun.

The republic side is kind of lame, I haven't found much to like about it so it's not surprising that the majority of players only have empire characters. But pvp is built on republic vs empire so that ends up causing huge problems since there is no cross servers support currently.

News Comments > Mass Effect 3 Ending Changes Planned

I think one of the things that turned me against these guys and the game in general were all the comments THIS GUY (Casey Hudson) made prior to release about all these features that turned out to be lies.

I would not expect this to be anything other than PR spin. Say whatever it takes to get the money. (or keep the money in this case) I think it's naive to think they've somehow learned from their mistakes. This is all about keeping current sales and making new ones.

Quotes from Casey (Among others)

News Comments > Wasteland 2 Update; Fargo Says: "Kick It Forward"
12. Re: Wasteland 2 Update; Fargo Says: Mar 21, 2012, 12:34 Tumbler
 
Kickstarter is Wildly changing the way I want to spend my money. The Banner Saga and that tex murphy remake are both on my radar and I'm trying to be a good consumer and only donate once each week but the stuff is just coming out of the woodwork.

Next they'll say, "Star Trek 25th anniversary HD remake" and I'll say, "SLOW DOWN!!!!!"

When you break down how much money goes to middle men not making games these budgets that kickstarter is achieving are incredible. I think we're seeing AAA titles shipping where they spend 30 to 40 million on the upper end? If only 10% of that is development costs you only need to raise $3 million or so and you're in the same ballpark as AAA titles.

You don't need to advertise, you've already got your pre-orders. You can distribute on steam...hell you can just open up your own site and offer it for direct download. Make the contribution needed to get a steam copy $5 more...hell maybe they already do that just in case everyone wants a steam copy. The biggest problem going forward is worrying about discipline inside these new entities because no one is "managing" them and as much as this sounds good...it's a concern. You give the wrong people 1.5 million and tell them to bring us a game in 18 months it's possible they're just going to be disorganized and unproductive. But at the end of the day as a $15 contributor to a project like that I"m not really that worried about getting my money's worth. I'll be happy with a $7 game or something...Even if it ends up netting me nothing I wasted less month than I typically do buying AAA titles. (very few are worth anywhere close to $60 in my opinion)

News Comments > Dragon Age II "Exalted March" Expansion Cancelled

I've heard Amazon is accepting returns on ME3. (opened) I'm going to see if that works for me. I'd rather not support Bioware anymore going forward and I'm really happy that Amazon is offering this option.

I was going to play the game a bit more, didn't do all the side missions, I was somewhat curious what the game would play like if I started fresh and did all Paragon but I think I'd rather just stop playing and get my money back.

FYI, if you purchased from amazon and you're unhappy they are apparently willing to accept returns.

News Comments > BioWare "Considering" Mass Effect 3 Ending Feedback

I'm not going to hold my breath for things to improve in ME3. I bought it at launch, it was fun, but compared to ME2 I feel like Bioware took a huge step backwards as far as quality.

What it feels like is that this is the best SP game they could do while trying to build in a MP component and ship it with as much profit potential as possible.

Parts of the game are brilliant and other parts are substandard. It's sad they didn't stay focused on making this the best SP game it could be.

Except for that tactical shooter, no one wants.

That is the beauty of Kickstarter in my opinion. If there is something I might like I can at least put my support in but I don't have to worry about supporting something that goes no where because they don't charge anyone until you're past that magical line.

I'm going to start hitting kickstarter each week trying to find something to support.

Found this for this week! FTL: Faster than Light $10 is minimum for game. They've already cross their goal...by 1000%!!!
