Even though these types of things are frustrating (esp. when it's compounded being more than one pc of HW) and console players point to as an issue like this as a big negative to gaming on a pc. I believe there is a real hidden benefit, it pays to know how to fix things like this.

I routinely point parent/kids to get their kids on PC's for gaming. I tell them, if your kid is going to play it should be on a PC, they are getting good experience using that pc, they will learn many things outside of direct gaming, where on a console, they learn nothing. These skills will help in their professional life later on.

I agree completely!! When I bought my first real PC, I knew almost nothing about computers. I had one good friend who was a computer nerd (I use "nerd" as a compliment) and when I would call him for tech support he never fixed anything for me. Instead, he showed me how to trouble shoot the problem and use the internet to find a solution. This is the whole "give a man a fish/teach a man to fish" thing.

Just using a computer daily for the past 14 years I have learned so much about hardware, software, and networking that I easily passed the A+/Net+ certification tests and got a good job working at the "Help Desk" of a local company as a "Support Technician". The company paid for me to receive further education in the field and I really owe my whole adult life situation to buying that first PC in 1999.

If I had just bought a PlayStation or whatever back then, I don't know where I would be! I will gladly suffer the occasional glitch, crash, BSoD, etc for the wealth of knowledge I gain!

I love sports games and I am an avid PC gamer but I always go to a console for my sports fix.

I think of PC gaming as single player or online multiplayer and consoles as single location multiplayer. I think that way mainly because of how I've always setup my PCs. On a desk with one chair, one keyboard, one mouse, one controller and my PC monitors have always been smaller then my main TVs. It just isn't feasible to game on my PC with more then one person.

The console, on the other hand, is always in my living room with a big couch and plenty of seating and controllers and a giant TV to play on. A console has always been a social gaming setup for me.

Win8 64 and a 3 gig graphics card??? I understand it's "recommended" but still...

Damn...


Are you saying "damn" because you think the requirements are high? Any gaming rig built in the last 8 months should exceed those reqs. Aside from Windows 8 which is just a shit OS and they will have to pry Win7 from my cold dead hands, my 1 year old rig beats all those recommended specs.

The idiot expresses regret that he had to stop making money off rape jokes, and that makes people "entitled brats"?

Woosh!

It wasn't a rape joke. It was an MMO joke. People are entirely too sensitive now-a-days and it is aggravating.

If people don't like something why can't they just not use the product/visit the webpage/listen to the song/watch the video/read the book/etc. etc. etc.

Yeah but the stories there aren't any better, unless Battleship's story just wasn't done any justice with the movie.


They made a Battleship movie? Huh! I must of missed that one. Did it go straight to DVD? ;-)

I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy Saint's Row 4 or not, so I rented it for my XBox 360 to check it out. I liked the gameplay, but ultimately gave up on it because the Field of View is so incredibly close, despite an entire life of gaming without any trouble I was actually getting very bad motion sickness from the game.

With a PC you can easily change the FoV, but they gave no such option on the console. This makes me really nervous about getting GTA5 for the console, if the FoV is really close and they neglect to add an option to change it, I have no interest in playing. Might have to sit the console release out and hope for a PC release eventually.

Why in God's name would you play a video game on anything other then a glorious PC? For me, the only thing consoles are good for are sports games and streaming movies from my PC to my TV!

So the new class is a Paladin? And they added 10 more meaningless levels? Oh yeah, I'll get in line for this right now... /sarcasm off

I don't know how Blizzard managed to ruin this franchise as badly as they did but it is OVER Blizzard. Stop pumping resources into this failure and move on to ruining something else. That seems to be all you are good at anymore.

If they bring back Skill Trees and remove the AH, I'm game. That is the only way I'd ever consider playing this game again.

You still need to buy the game, there is just no monthly fee anymore
Not according to the Steam Store, you can just click "play" and hop in.

I guess they are advertising the Starter Pack on the main Forge website:
Forge- Available Now
That says $20 and No Monthly Subscription.

Confusing!

The Chubby Checker? Really? From HP? I could see the app on the Google Store or something but from a huge company like HP? That seems highly unprofessional and inappropriate...
What the hell were they thinking?

Microsoft complaining about someone not playing fair is the most blatant example of the pot calling the kettle black that I have ever seen!
It is not Google's fault that Windows Phone is simply a terrible platform and that Microsoft can't provide a YouTube experience on par with Android or iOS...

I'm glad I'm not the only one to see the irony in this...

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Election Season Begins

I agree Sempai. Dungeons and grouping just turns into a clusterf**k with no one having any set role. I miss the trinity of Healer, Tank, DPS as it gives structure to a game.
I do enjoy how every class has enough offensive power to solo level though. I remember trying to level a Midgard Dwarf Healer in Dark Age of Camelot. Without a group it was so mind numbingly boring trying to level that guy that I gave up. I know they added an offensive on-hit proc buff that upped the Healer's damage output but it was still SOOO SLOW!
Overall I enjoy Guild Wars 2 but the lack of structure really ruins dungeons and they were my favorite part of MMOs in the past.

THANK YOU... for reminding me of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance!! I haven't played this is like 4 years but it was an instant classic. My friends and I logged many hours battling it out in this game. Time to reinstall and relive the good old days!

But this was a GOOD game! It is a shame when quality titles don't catch on because people don't know they exist or have preformed opinions of a company or game.
I really enjoyed RoI and BfG. The champs were original and well thought out, the game was paced perfectly, and the graphics were nothing to laugh at.
I wish Petroglyph success in the future and look forward to them trying again!
