News Comments > Is Destiny Destined for PCs?

You're just arguing for the sake of it and not really on point with what I was talking about. Even if this was about "server clusters" which they didn't say, the PC is where MMOs thrive and VM space is cheap to rent these days. There isn't really a good reason for not having a PC version of an MMO, even moreso when porting concerns have been eased considerably.

We should make this a thing, like a regular poker game or something. Every week we get together and yell at each other about Star Citizen. Rarrrr I don't think its coming out! Chris Roberts is a god! Chris Roberts hates babies! This game is poop compared to Elite!!

Eh? Ive read your post three times and well I guess my comprehension is really off today...Did you just say that Microsoft doesnt allow cross platform play and then called it Bungie's excuse?

"we cant make a PC version because of cross platform play concerns" isn't a good excuse when you already can't have cross platform play due to cert issues and rules. The back end shit isn't a good excuse either so Bungie is just being silly.

I read the article but that sounds like a developer making excuses, Microsoft already doesn't allow cross platform play, its one of their cert stipulations. If the dev meant the backend then that also makes zero sense.

It seems like such a natural fit for the PC, I don't know why they're leaving money on the table like this. It looks almost like a mash up of WoW and Halo which would be quite lucrative and I mean if you're making an MMO you do it on the PC because thats where the market is. Bizarre choices.

The casting for GoT really is almost perfect all around. Now if George would just get the fucking next book out and series wrapped up sometime before the next decade and/or he snuffs it then all will be well.


Yeah I tend to agree. Their choices for the show rekindled my interest in some of the characters from the books. Whoever does the casting deserves some major kudos. The whole production is pretty incredible now that I think about it, I can only hope HBO throws some money at an original sci-fi series sometime too.

Uh oh. I can see them shutting down the servers sooner now.

The servers are operated by Namco-Bandai, not From Software. So they will likely keep them going.

They are, but even better on PC. Don't let facts get in the way of the hate train, though.

Agreed. PC version or bust for me.

I have a theory that they know at this point that the books are going to lag far behind the show. So, the show guys are having to forge their own path so that they can finish the show their own way. The final book will probably come out after the show finale.

It's just a theory, though. I got nothin to back it up.

Martin gave them a rough guideline of where he wants to go with the books already. Your theory will almost certainly pan out, he has extremely poor work habits.

I found it to be a pretty ho-hum game overall, I'm more interested in checking out Peggle 2 when it comes to casualware.

I don't know about anyone else, but this game runs a lot better than the first one on my mid-range laptop, and I think it looks significantly better.

Having played either on the PS3, I found DS2 looked significantly worse overall. The jaw-dropping vistas and world design are almost completely gone.

Yeah this I can agree with, the area and level design overall took a nosedive between games. Not their best work. On the other hand I really like most of the other improvements.

The user scores seem to be trending lower than the critical metascore surprisingly.

I'll keep an eye on it but my time in beta didn't impress me and the sub fee makes me balk.

Right, it's not, but I don't think it's a sign of any deeper failure than the readily apparent fact that they're stuck in second place. I doubt it can be used to extrapolate any supplier or stocking issues.

Their CFO already admitted that they're scaling down production due to retail overstock, the other bit was just my personal speculation that they were channel stuffing for press releases and that's why they were reporting shipped.

You guys seem to make more of the shipped to figure than I think it merits. You know Sony did the same with PS3 until late in its life, when it achieved more-or-less parity, right?

I don't think it's a particularly accurate way of reporting sales, not when Sony did it or when anyone else does.

Some poeple seem to be missing a point here. Sure the game works great with a controller, but thats not the issue. The issue is that the developers LIED and claimed the game would work well with KB&M.

Oh man he capitalized lied, this must be a pretty big deal

Actually it seems to work so far with KB/M. I don't think its idealc compared to gamepads but its improved from the last game. Have you played this?

The biggest sin I've seen so far is Xbox prompts for buttons which is a silly oversight but not the end of the world. The changes they made to the lighting engine are really unfortunate too but that's a design thing that isn't specific to the PC version.

Seems like a pretty reasonable review that echoes most of the things I've heard about the game, both good and bad. I'm glad I decided to wait and see on this, maybe in a year I'll check it out when they drop the sub price and the kinks are worked out.
