Batman: Arkham Asylum Patch

The version 1.1 patch for Batman: Arkham Asylum should now be available on Games for Windows LIVE, among other things adding PhysX support to the superhero game (there's a new video on the YouTube with comparisons with and without PhysX). A manual version of the patch is also available thanks to The Patches Scrolls, available on FanGaming, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, The Patches Scrolls, and Strategy Informer.

Again, not really.
If they mean nothing to me then they are not "better." They are different. If I don't care about that difference then how does it matter? The lobster at a Ritz Carlton may be "better" than the lobster at Red Lobster but if I'm allergic why do I care? Neither one is "better" to me if I have no intention of eating it.

I know you are frustrated and think you are so right and it's so simple, different people care about different things! You're not though... it's very simple: more AA is better than less. There is no way in which that is not true. Even if I don't care about AA at all, more AA is still better than none.

A higher bitrate is better for music, there is no way getting around that. I download 256bps MP3s on iTunes because I don't give a shit. Still, CD quality audio is better... just because I don't care about the difference doesn't mean it isn't there. The audio listening experience is better on CD, but I don't care much about music so I don't give a shit.

In gaming, the PC offers a better gameplay experience because of all the factors listed. If you are not an enthusiast and don't care, fine, but that doesn't make PC and less better than CDs when I don't care.

I can't make it much more simple than that.

But that's not the actual game experience. That's part of the game experience. It's one factor into the game experience, or rather one set of factors. And, to many, after a certain point it's diminishing returns and other factors are more important.

So this issue all boils down to bullshit semantics? Is that it? Jerykk says gameplay experience and you spend 4 pages and multiple days arguing about it because your definition of that is different?

When I say gameplay experience I mean, well, fucking gameplay, not anything else. The actual gameplay is better on PC, this is a FACT. You can tell me all day long it isn't because of completely unrelated factors and how some people won't care, but you're wrong. It is a quantifiable FACT, just like CD audio being better is a FACT.

The pain it is to get CDs doesn't matter, the fact they can crack doesn't matter, they are a better listening experience. PC games offer better gameplay experience.

Why is it so hard for some of you to figure out that people have different preferences? I went to school forever to get a higher paying job. My buddy got one degree then got married and had a kid. Was he being complacent? Was his decision not to get about 40 more degrees like I did his ignorance and complacency, or did he simply have different priorities? Is my life experience "better" than his?

Why do you ignore portions of Jerykk and I's comments that address this comment and show it to be ludicrous? I will ask something again from before, are you purposely ignorant and can you not understand what we are saying?

We know people have different preferences. We have gone over this one hundred freaking times. All we are freaking saying is the PC gamePLAY expereince is better, but people CHOOSE to play on consoles for other reasons anyway.

That is all we are saying. It is nothing like you characterize.

Stop being pissy because Jerykk sometimes makes fun of consoles and open your eyes to what is actually being discussed.
