With so much going on for consoles with their motion controls this year, have we forgotten the awesome lineup the PC is getting for software? SFX Rectrix of SFX-360.com lists ten supreme games worthy of our attention that are coming to PC soon.
....I think I'll actually wait to see the conferences before I declare "Forget consoles!"
Must have written this piece of garbage "article"
meh... ignorant gamers only play on one platform.
So it's ignorance that has lead me away from owning: SNES N64 Gamecube Wii PS2 XBOX Gamboy Gameboy Colour Gamebot advance NDS NDSi... To now only gaming on PC?... no it is experience and wisdom. Paying $10-20 more for an inferior experience?, hope, done with it, you have fun though. I'm sure all those full price games + paid DLC + paid DLC + paid DLC... bring you endless amounts of joy.
luckily for the rest of us both sony and nintendo will probably 'spit hot fire' tomorrow. Wait a sec, I still think MS has something to say tomorrow actually but up til now they've done a bit of sH1t....i can see thats the general consensus
Dude I'm watching the Halo Reach gameplay and all I can say is fuck the haters. The gameplay looks amazing. The visuals have taken such a leap forward that I'm not sure how the 360 can do it but it's doing it. That's all I got to say. When I logged in a couple hours ago and saw all the negative news about the 360 press conference I was expecting the worst, so far I've watched the Gears 3 demo and now the Reach demo and they're both great. This shows to me that despite having a lackluster presentation yesterday, Microsoft can support the 360 for another 2 years because they are now pulling into a new gear. So seriously, stop spreading FUD about the 360 because if all anyone bought the console for was Halo and Gears then they're not going to be disappointed with it.
we all knew about gears, fable etc...Ive said in a previous comment that the games shown were great but i, like many others, expected more. Greenberg did say everybody will be catered for but he missed the bit about 60% of the show being bravado, 35% casual and 5 for us, the core. no need to ef n blind..MS just done sh!t this year and i reply to ya because i definitely see you as a fair commenter but people were NOT impressed
none of the console only games interest me anyways.. i prefer what pc overs..and the competitive side of things... so yea forget consoles ...if you game like me
-Star Wars: The Old Republic I've never been really into starwars but if I look at it from a gameplay perspective, this game looks like a WoW clone. Which I am not interested in at all. -Final Fantasy XIV We all know this game is on the PS3, but lets be realistic.... The PC version WILL be superior, there's no avoiding it, so if you want to play this game the best way it can possibly be played (Graphics, Performance, CONTROLs, and Online) you'll need to play this on the PC. -Sid Meier’s Civilization V What can I say, it's a Civ game. -StarCraft 2 StarCraft 2, enough said. -WoW: Cataclysm If you like WoW, sure it's alright I suppose but you have an awful taste in games anyways. -GUILD WARS 2 http://www.youtube.com/watc... Text isn't necessary to describe this game's jaw dropping gameplay, graphics and pure, potent awesomeness. Games like these are the reason why PC gamers are so proud. -Crysis 2 We all know this is a PC game, whether it's on consoles or not... -The Witcher 2 http://www.youtube.com/watc... -B&S http://www.youtube.com/watc... The revolution of MMOs, This changes everything(About MMOs) -Portal 2 Portal 2! PC gaming is where it's at for me, but that doesn't mean I'm anti console. I love my PS3, wii, DS, and PSP. I can't wait for all the console exclusives that about to be released... LBP2 The Last Guardian Blazblue: Continuum Shift Vanquish New Zelda Game Zone Of Enders 3 Persona 5 Metroid: Other M Ar tonelico 3 Armored Core 5 Another Century's Episode: R And many others..
my kids when they get game time skip pass all 3 consoles and connect straight to steam. They just love playing with zombies on the pc.
For me ps3 has the best lineup. However, I can't wait to get sc2 and diablo 3 on the pc.
Star Wars: The Old Republic.
PC has great upcoming games no doubt, but PS3`s lineup is leading the pack right now, sorry.
killzone 2.5? Or some other sequel/expansion? Starcraft 2 alone > than the entire 2010 ps3 catalog, there is nothing on ps3 this year that will make any lasting impact. Its all just disposable entertainment.
Civ V and Starcraft 2 :)
Four MMOs, one turn based strategy game and one clicky RPG really illustrate how MMO centric the PC gaming economy are these days. Notice the lack of FPS and genre the PC once dominated. But the best thing about PC gaming these days? Value and digital downloads. The ability to buy new titles like Dawn of War 2 Chaos Rising or Supcom 2 for a measly $15 is a sharp contrast to the console's DLC rapefest. Crysis Warhead can be bought on Steam right now for $15, can you buy Killzone 2 from PSN for $15? Hell no.
No it really just illustrates how the game media is bias. New engine along with new fps and game play styles are coming. On top of this you can play quake 3 for freebie in a web browser. The console game media has a voluntary monopoly on this gens gamers. On top of this the types of games that are accepted are narrowing just like the pc market. All due to gamers buying habits not forum post. If console gamer accepted more game types we wouldn't need casual games. Go and check out ids stuff give the pc version of quake wars a try and check out brink coming to the pc. Also the better ports come to pc example street fighter 4 is arcade perfect and devil may cry actualy let's you fight 3 times the enemys. No one is talking about these things, not sure why.
only 3 Sony published games on PC so far... most of 3rd party games are on PC... Having a PC is like having better version of Xbox...
gets 95% of console games in real 1080p, 1440p, 1600p hd not 720p (poor mans hd) or even lower....540p....576p...600p.. ..640p.....gross Plus tons of exclusives that would not even run on a console....don't get me wrong...i have the consoles for that 5% of games I can't get on PC...other than that....pass Also whoever said we only get mmo's is smoking something funny.....we get 95% of your games....only they look 10x better on my tv than they do on yours.
I also own both consoles. To be frank halo, killzone, gears, uncharted...They make for decent time sinks when I'm bored but I get zero replayability out of them. and no not even with halo. CSS DM or Gungame destroys any form of online gaming. Considering console online gaming isn't even close to going competitive. Console gaming online is considered by many in my steam friends list as casual no matter what game it is.
Most games right now don't interest me at all, too many shooters, too many recycled sequels, I don't care what paltoform you play on, gaming is stale. When is is focused on peripherals and console re-launches you know it is stale across the board. I'm playing more RTS right now than anything else. I'll wait to fire up the shooters when I upgrade my PC. I was interested in Brink and Fallout: New Vegas, but they are both using steam for the retail games so F em, 2 sales lost. Now there isn't that much in releases coming up that i'm interested in at all. Crysis 2, Elemental War of Magic... * shrugs * 2011 should be better, half the games that were slated for this year have been pushed back. I've already bought ME2 AVP3 BFBC2 Supcom2 Bioshock 2 Dragon Age Awakening, This year. The list was much bigger but most games get less appealing to me the more the reveal, they always look great in their little montages, but i'm sick of paying for crap games. Bring on Diablo 3 and the Witcher....
but you know posting this here wont win any fans. Guild Wars 2, Old Replublic, Witcher 2, Civ 5, Strarcraft 2 are more than enough for me to just forget consoles myself. Plus games like mafia 2, crysis 2, and fallout new vegas just begged to be played on pc.
