PACH ATTACK EPISODE 108
There are PCs much more powerful than mine. Again, I’ll wait for the flamers to tell me that’s wrong, and that it’s percent. Posted April 9, And why haven’t you read the article which provides the places where that comment was and how it was addressed later on and went over to watch the latest episode of Pack Attack? The article pulls meaning out of what Pachter says with totally forgetting what Pachter’s profession is or how it works. There is a thread about “why isn’t ArmA2 more popular” Folks, it has nothing to do with graphics, animations, etc ArmA2 is not an instant gratification, get kills in the first 5 minutes kind of game. Just play the damn games and shut up.
You guys should be focused on the games you guys miss out on every year that consoles get. Seriously they’re not that much of a threat to PC gaming Not to say that the PC has an unfair advantage but there are so many variables to take into consideration when building a gaming pc. It’s becoming a declining industry because you can get a near-PC experience on a console right now, he said. However the tables quickly turn if you are a real gamer and would like to play many games a year. This is a site that is visited by heavy gaming enthusiasts. As a PC-only gamer though, I am very thankful for companies like BIS and Eagle Dynamics who do not cave into the allure of the quick bucks on console games. Blues Cowboy d ago No, no no.
All this man has to do is sit in an office, go to lunches with other people who sit in pcah, make stuff up which doesn’t have to be the least bit correct, present it to people who don’t understand it, and collect a paycheck. I just got a AW laptop for gaming and this is definitely the case. Gamers won’t get anything out of these new pursuits, he said.

Especially when you don’t know where that curve is going. Lol forget my desktop PC, My 3 year old laptop with the following specs: New players can quest with a level 80 and level up at a triple rate capping off at level You guys should be focused on the games you guys miss out on every year that consoles get.
Agree 5 Disagree 4. In which case you just as well have a PC. Agree 14 Disagree I guess Im kidding myself the only game I really play now on PC is a 12 year old game called Starcraft. Well thats just silly, this gen of consoles isn’t yet 10yrs old.
Let me explain though before hammering me: Lets take Wow for example, MMO’s like wow are becoming prehistoric, due to it’s lack of intuitive gameplay. Lol we have more games and more verity than any console out there.
Maybe its the fact that my copy of a game will run exactly the same as the other guys who i would play against online. I didn’t see an actual quote in the article, so I’m giving Pachter the benefit of the doubt until I see an actual quote. Look at all the panty twisting going on here, making people proclaim what they have and how its teh bests.

Most of the time they don’t even have a game nominated for GOTY. Agree 0 Disagree 2. Its only PS3 which has some Sony funded games that dont make it to the PC, however if you look at any console gaming line up all you get is: I fully believe the Doctors left in direct response to that whole mess.
Gone are the days of building up base defenses, upgrading pacn units, and amassing a sizeable force for a multi-flank assault. PC gaming is in danger, cause when “mainstream sales” are causing and may cause in future developers to forget about PC owners because of this there won’t be modable games, freeware content, and such games that require some brain will vanish many RPG-type, strategic, story-line games can disappear in future because of consoles cancer is something that eats bodyright?

Most games released on console are just to generic kid friendly, Try picking up a game like dota 2 on the PC, its so darn complex you wont find anything like it on console. People forget to realise that consoles dont need “teh power” that pcs need to keep up.
Consoles can’t be expected to maintain a 10yr life cycle and compete with pc, unless someday consoles are hardware upgradable. Its just something about the simplicity of just turning on the system to play a game and turning it off when you are done. T Every Year I see PC Elitist fighting for some game to be pprted late to their system of choice, That’s proof enough to me, that PC elitists only focus is on power. InTheLab d ago Madmen’s point stands.
I think he means at I own both a Attack and Xbox and still use them for exclusives – and I won’t try and pretend that I don’t find the console experience much more convenient.
About the question though, well, those who will have an issue with it will be fanboys. Agree 5 Disagree 1.
Hell, if it weren’t for the fact that we take care of my father-in-law, I wouldn’t even have a TV in the living room or cable Tv for that matter he’s the TV watcher lol.

Even World Of Warcraft caved. As a PC-only gamer though, I am very thankful for companies like BIS and Eagle Dynamics who do not cave into the allure of the quick bucks on console games. They get a console. Bowzabub d ago Edited d ago Yes.
Either he’s clueless and don’t touch him anymore, or he’s not and take everything he says with respect; don’t interview and talk to him and then call him names like “clueless”; it just makes the interviewer looks stupid, not Patcher. In this episode, which was posted on Saturdayhe talks about the closure of Pandemic and the departure of BioWare founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk.
I respect the power, and hope Consoles adapt that type of upgradable system philosophy, but PC’s are only attractive to me when they have a great game that no other console has, which is rare.
It’s really not that black and white as you make it out to be. That may be the case once you’ve built or purchased a suitable rig, but you can’t just crack open any PC and fill it with upgrades.
You’re right,most Pcs and laptop out compete the ps but consoles all have standard hardware and to access the hardware for a dev is easier,to kind if make a point ,does anyone remember the nvidia medusa demo? PC gaming is in danger, cause when “mainstream sales” are causing and may cause in future developers to forget about PC owners.
