    UbiSoft products dropping PC ports?

    in PC Discussion on 24 November 2011

    Good. The ports were either shite or encumbered with ridiculous DRM. Before the usual fanboys start circling- Ubisoft have lost over $300 million over the last few years, during which they've consistently shat on the PC platform, to the extent of losing 90% of their sales on it, with no corresponding increase in console sales. I know correlation != causation, but forgive me if this sounds like...

    Super Street Fighter IV Arcade and Street Fighter X Tekken coming to PC

    in PC Discussion on 03 May 2011

    DRM's not there to stop piracy you dope, it's to control how legitimate owners use their game post-sale. Pirates don't give a fuck about DRM, because they never have to experience it- the DRM scheme is ripped out or modified before the cracked games get released to leechers as a torrent/ newsgroup binary/ whatever. Your 'PS' is as ignorant as the rest of your posts in this thread. While many PC...

    Fable III to launch on Steam and GFWL

    in PC Discussion on 25 April 2011

    Good to see Microsoft bowing to the inevitable, hopefully they'll get some of their back catalogue on Steam, and/ or GOG as well. I have to say though, this is a months-late port of a game which didn't exactly get stellar reviews, has both SecuROM and GfWL and releases almost at the same time as The Witcher 2. It's almost like it's been sent out to die....

    Super Street Fighter IV Arcade and Street Fighter X Tekken coming to PC

    in PC Discussion on 16 April 2011

    It is indeed. Which is why I never said it gets all of the multi-plats, it does get a very healthy number of them, though. As for Microsoft, after realising PC gamers wouldn't pay for its woeful Live service, they stopped making PC games almost entirely (I believe Sony have made more PC games over the last few years than Microsoft) and concentrated on XBox exclusives instead. If I were a...

    in PC Discussion on 15 April 2011

    Dear God, give me strength. What games exactly, have skipped the PC because of piracy? Please tell me. As far as I can see, the PC gets pretty much all of the multi-plats, along with more exclusives than all the consoles put together. What it doesn't get is $50 million exclusives with huge marketing budgets. But there again, it never fucking did. And neither would any of the 'hd' consoles if...

    Any of the Total War series should scratch your strategy itch, as well as the more hardcore Pardox titles like Europa Universalis and Victoria 2. There are also a ton of RTSes, like the Dawn of War series, Company of Heroes, World in Conflict etc etc. For RPGs all of the old Infinity Engine games like Baldur's Gate, Planescape, Icewind Dale etc are available for cheap on gog.com- there's a ton of...

    Bioware/EA DRM messed up Dragon Age again?

    in PC Discussion on 13 April 2011

      "(On the client side, the authorization service that runs under Windows doesn't always start, so even if Bioware's servers are up, users can still face this problem.)" This was exactly the problem I had back when the game first came out. In the end I had to set the authorisation service to start at boot, as it often wouldn't start when the game did. Completely ridiculous, as was...

    Or of course, it can carry on with its 'job', pushing other browsers to at least keep up with it and making sure that the likes of Microsoft don't become complacent and allow IE to stagnate again. Win-win for everyone....
