H.A.W.X. 2 Delayed

Posts to the Ubisoft Forums indicate the PC edition of Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 is suffering another delay, as several customers report receiving word from the Ubi shop that the aerial combat sequel will be ready for download on November 16. Last month it was reported that the PC edition was pushed back until October 1, but the reports on the forums say they were told the game would be pushed back to November 1 at some point prior to this latest delay. No reason for the setback is mentioned. Thanks Big Download.

Tried to like consoles again, for 2 fucking weeks. Completely unbiased and full of anticipation I started up Alan Wake, then Red Dead Redemption and Fable 2.

Consoles are fucking abominations. PC > Consoles in every aspect, unless -- maybe! -- you play God/Gears of War 24/7. People that claim otherwise are ignorant and/or haven't ever played on a gaming PC (while actually giving it an unbiased CHANCE, like I did with consoles multiple times).

Case closed.

You're a fool that doesn't enjoy gaming anymore. Console gaming is superior to PC gaming, because of all those hot games coming out on console and not on PC. Case closed.

The games coming out on consoles suck bad mostly due to the controls. You have to play in tunnel-vision mode because spinning the camera around to enjoy the surroundings while moving your character in the correct direction is such a freakin' hideous piece of labor -- and more often than not impossible -- you reluctantly choose not to do it anyway.

And then there's the auto-aiming. Most console players say they "actually aim better than with a mouse". They say this first and foremost because they're not right in the head and can't think straight, and 2. because of auto-aiming. When a discussion verges to the aiming side, I serve them Shadowrun for dinner to state my case.
They choke on it and the discussion dies.

And then there's the couch setting. Some people say it's relaxing, but I can't relax when I'm trying to hear what they're saying while kids are running about. Overall: The setting kills immersion.

Some more PC > console cases: 1. High screen resolutions 2. Free mods 3. Upgradeable hardware 4. Cheaper games 5. Quicker loading speeds ...

Yes, I have compared. A few years ago console gamers had one case on their side: "Because I have a console, I can turn it on, sit down, and play. Just like that." Not anymore. With my late 2009 gig I'm twice as fast getting into a game from boot up than a console.

Games are becoming more shallow and shallow by the release and guys like you, ASJD, are too ignorant to see it. If it were up to you guys.. you'd love a game that's more so a movie, as long as you could "Press B for cool combo move" every 5 minutes.

*sigh* There. I said it.

I know I've been talking to a wall, however. Did you guys know that a human's love for stuff like Apple and Consoles is processed in the part of the brain where your religious beliefs are also (along with principles btw)? That's basically the reason there's no point in having a discussion about it.

Not surprised after my experience with Silent Hunter 5. Ubi just keeps digging that hole deeper don't they?

They treat their customers like shit so I stopped being one of their customers.

LOL! You're not serious are you?

Kids buy consoles, real nerds build their own platforms

i think the DRM is the delay. imagine if they released it at the peak of interest. everytime they delay the game less people want to buy it. problem of piracy solved!

My guess? Early indications from retailers is that demand for the game isn't as high as expected, so they're drawing out the PC release a bit more in the hopes of getting some people who would've paid $50 for it on PC to spend $60 to get it now on their console of choice.

As for the topic at hand: Who cares.

Probably didn't have time to finish implementing the DRM so give it another postponement to make the DRM extra-draconian.

They are probably having trouble upscaling their shitty textures to fit into available PC memory, after all whats 8 gigs compared to the 360's infinite amount..
