Enjoy getting KOTOR 6 months after I had it? ;-)
Since I got to play it at 1600x1200 with 6xFSAA and in Dolby 5.1, yeah, pretty much. Heart of the Guardian rules too, btw.
Oh, and how are the fixes to the bugs in the Xbox version coming along?
Ion Storm abandoning the PC? Probably so, many developers eventually ditch the one platform that got them to where they are now, so it wouldn't surprise me. Whether that is something Xbox fans should be HAPPY about is up to them. You liked IW, good for you. Compare it to the original, and it reeks of Hollywood Regurgitated Vomit Syndrome. (ie, the original was approximately 20 times better than the sequel)
As for Thief 3, we'll see. I would have gotten it the second it came out, but since they botched up DX:IW so badly, AND since Thief 3 will be running with the same limp, fucked up engine, I'm going to be a bit more conservative. It's bad enough that Deus Ex has now been tarnished forever, I don't really want to see Thief go the same way.
I will agree that PC developers now draw a lot of crap online, and that it seems that nothing but negativity is flung in their direction. However, if said PC developers would take the fucking time to make sure their product actually WORKS
before releasing it, so that they wouldn't have to PATCH
it within 0.04 seconds of release, maybe they might catch a little bit less flack?
I'm sure that all the Xbox owners for whom DX:IW crashes frequently are VERRRRRRRRRRRY happy with Ion Storm's wonderful Quality Assurance.
Edit : If the game is so bad, then why does it continue to garner plenty of positive reviews?
There is a difference between "positive reviews" that rank around 80% (source, gamerankings.com, pc version averages 82% ), and getting GREAT reviews that consistently clock in well over 90%. Let's not forget that the original received over FIFTY
Game Of The Year awards. We simply expected more, and we certainly expected more than a gimped Xbox port. Small levels my ass.This comment was edited on Jan 14, 17:56.
