The unhappiest gamers alive are at Blue's News. While I've seen sites with a lot more bile and spite in terms of quantity, no site beats the consistency of posts here at Blue's. I can predict with almost 100% certainty what a given user will say about a given news post.

I really wonder, with the posts I see here, why these people bother with gaming at all if it is so bad. I have to assume they are mostly pirates and aren't investing any cash into the hobby. After all, to complain that much and still give developers money they'd have to be the biggest suckers alive.
Oh, what a self-righteous bullshit!

I've been a PC gamer for 20+ years, most of that exclusively, and I still find the fear and hyperbole about "consolized" games to be laughable.
Nice for you. But other people have "slightly" different quality standards.

Borderlands' menus are far from "broken."
They are designed to be used with a controller. Usable with mouse & keyboard? Yes, usable, barely! Good? Hell, fuck, no! Terrible console crap!

But, to be honest, not as bad as in Burnout Paradise (PC), which has THE worst menu interface of all times.

I don't care what the "Waaah regenerating health!" crybabies say, that sounds fucking awesome.
If said crybabies can keep on calling auto-heal-lovers lazy, stupid, skill-less fucks, yes, than you may find that as awesome as you like

Don't tell me they've kowtowed to the imaginary console players or whoever they think they can sell this game to, so much that they have only ONE playable character at a time?
DS3 is a multiplattform game. What do you expect?

ACTA is one small part of the globalist agenda.
Please, think before you post. There is nothing wrong with globalization. It's for the benefit of all. Really, it is

But ... ACTA is only good for a chosen few, for the already rich and powerful. You cannot fight or stop "globalization". That's a process, that happend since generations. The world is becoming smaller. Which is good thing. But everyone has to profit from this process, not only a few selected companies or countries.

And especially americans have to learn, that isolation and "running away from it all" is the fastest way to make the US a powerless third-world nation.

Might get lynched by fanboi's, but I thought the single player campaign's story was actually short, generic, and boring.
It was. It is clearly an unresolved corpse of a story, much fillers, little developement and yes, sometimes even boring. The SP campaign NEEDS the Zerg and Protoss elements of the story. People, who are more interested in the SP campaign, should wait until Part 2 and 3 are released.

Multiplayer is what this game is built on.
Yep.

Would someone who usually doesn't like rts games have any hope of getting enjoyment out of this game?
No. Because, you know, it's a RTS game, it has RTS written all over it, it's gameplay consists 100% of basic RTS gameplay mechanics

And if you are perhaps interested in the setting or the story, read the books or the comics or the story section of a SC wiki.

Creston wrote on Sep 1, 2010, 11:27:
This makes absolutely BRILLIANT sense. I'm glad the game industry is in such capable hands. After all, higher revenue plus no profit is better than lower revenue plus profit.
You're right. Many publishers seek for the potential higher revenue of console games, because the investors demand potential higher profits. And the investors follow only the principles of the stock market, where solid and steady, self-sufficient "money making" has no place, where promises of profit are more worth than actual existing profit.

So, if you're a small publisher, an indie dev, you can make a good living by making PC games for a specified niche audience. And they can thank the gods, because the majors have mostly left the PC market.

And concerning the interview: very good read, but i had to copy the text to OpenOffice and reformat it, so that i could read it without risking my eye sight

DLC is the future.
Maybe for the majors. Maybe not even for them.

Most gamers enjoy it.
Perhaps some gamers, who bought (!) DLC. Everyone else isn't interested at all or is just waiting for the "Gold" release, when you pay money for a complete game and nor full price for some intentionally butchered crap.

But, it's your money, your descision.

What are you on about?
They are "simplifying" the combat system, making it "faster" and more "action orientated", introducing quick time events (press Up, Down, Left, Left, Up, as shown on the screen) to "enhance" boss fights ...

They are making an already simple combat system a lot more simple, so that you can use a controller with the game. Out, out, damn pc-centric gameplay! Welcome, new and shiny multi-platform mediocrity!

I was very excited as i heard first from TW2. But after following several previews, videos and press events, it seems clear, that we don't get a "The Witcher 2", but a Gods of War clone with RPG elements.

You can see they're real gamers, and that they understand their niche.
But now, they aim for the big money and are dumbing down the combat system for consoles and controllers and people, who don't want to think, when they are playing.

Interesting, how much hate a person can generate ... gamers can get very emotional over their games, can get very angry at persons, who just see money in a game and not the emotional experience of playing it. Dont be angry at Pachter! He is only part of a big money making industry YOU ALL helped to create, when you decided to keep on buying games from the majors. You cannot have triple A, high budget games without people like Pachter or Kotick. You gave them money, you gave them power. Dont like it? Stop giving them money!

Yes, probably. But it's their money and humans still have the right to be foolish and stupid

No game requires DLC. But DLC is required to make much money from people, who like to be nickle & dimed.

I wish they would detail what is different with this game compared to the boxed game.

http://www.companyofheroes.com/forums/general-discussion/topics/CoHO-FAQ

It seems, this is basically the same game, but only as a F2P with microtransactions.

Still learning the game. Seems good.
Maybe, if you're new to the browser game genre

I played them a few years back and this is the most NON-innovative genre i've met. You play basically the same game over and over and over again. Do this = x hours, do that = y hours. There are (and were) only a few games leaving this established path. And one day i've had enough. For me browser games are the past, burried deep, deep below, never to return.

Fun? Yes, of course. A while. Then they are boring as hell and there are better things to waste time with.
