I didn't realize how much Skyrim I've played. I'm into 311 hours. I can't wait for the next game that isn't an MMO.

I found the controls were awkward and unresponsive. The 3rd person view was awkward as well.

I remember way back in 2010...

[url=]http://www.bluesnews.com/s/114501/on-microsoft-games-studio_s-pc-recommitment[/url]

“There’s been a fair bit of criticism aimed at Microsoft that we were spending a lot of our focus on console, and we need to be putting resources behind PC as well,” Microsoft Games Studios’ general manager Dave Luehmann told MCV in an interview.

I wonder how that worked out for Mr Luehmann, seeing as he's now at Trion.

Warband has awesome mods. I play in regular Mount & Musket line battles, which features large hats and inaccurate rifles. CRPG brings some nice RPG features. Mount & Gladius is a work in progress Roman mod which is pretty fun even if it's alpha.

WoT is fun, as long as the matchmaking system doesn't pit you against tanks you can't damage but can take you out in one shot. I think the game is best in the first two tiers, avoiding the later grind in ineffective tanks. The M3 Lee grind is the worst.

Fully remappable controls support USB gamepads, joysticks, and mouse/keyboard control schemes.

This is BS it doesn't work with most joysticks. On my X52 the throttle doesn't work and it constantly spins. Others report Thrustmaster sticks don't work. The dev claims this will be fixed in about a week.

EA already has an established Space Flight series. It's called Wing Commander. Angry

The first game really blew my mind. I loved the squad based tactics, instant death and the lack of health packs. It kills me that they threw all of that away to make a crappy CoD/BF console clone. The good news is that modders came out with some great addons and missions.

Oh the shocking plot twists..

Who comes up with these terrible schlock plots and then beats us about the head with it?

Ubi seems hard at work degrading Rainbow 6 into the next Generic FPS just like they did with Ghost Recon.

Whatever happened to the game that had a teaser trailer (last year?) of mechs doing battle in a city landscape with a mech on/in a multi-storey car park (IIRC).

Hawken?

Just another pay to win game, but it can be very fun at the lower tiers.

That is very true. Once you hit around tier four you will find yourself regularly matched with tanks you cannot damage. Then the game is just a frustrating grind to the next tank.

So this is what they meant by recomitting to PC gaming, eh? And MS continues its unabated slide into irrelevence.

I believe Dave Luehmann was the last to restate Microsoft's commitment to PC.. and he doesn't work there any longer.

Rewriting the entire countries education system, road signs, maps, packaging, measuring devices, training employees, etc isn't as expensive as saying or typing "k".

Sure..

I think Krovven saying the US doesn't use the metric system is a stretch. There are plenty of fields that primarily use the metric system.

Also find it ironic that the US accepts k as the abbreviation for thousand when they don't even use the metric system.

To heck with the game, finish the damn book series George. I'm waiting for you to finish before I even start reading them!

I'm only half way into a Dance with Dragons, but I expect that this series will not end with some sort of long term resolution. It wouldn't make sense at this point. I would just read the books and accept them as they are.

It pisses me off to no end when publishers just sit on all these classic IPs.

It's true and sad, EA is sitting on a lot of them. I would love to see a new Wing Commander or Crusader game.

I've been playing Ultima 1 on my Apple IIgs. It's not bad for its time. I might play the rest on my C64. I hear the SID music on those is great.

And Microsoft is so for PC gaming.

Isn't it about time for them to state their commitment to PC gaming again?
