The Problems With Dead Space 2's PC Version

After a step in the right direction that was Battlefield: Bad Company 2, EA seems to be doing a complete turnaround from all the progress it has made in the PC market recently. Such is the case with the PC release of Dead Space 2.

Why does the PC always get shafted with shoddy ports when it's the most powerful platform? It really makes no sense.

My guess would be the modding community, they (developers) let them (PC gamers) do all the work.

Read after me:

EA is more evil than Activision. EA makes me pay to play online with Online Pass with no additional benefit!

TheGameFoxJTV2702d ago

You only have to pay for that if you get the game used? Right? So, how can this affect you on PC since last I checked, it's near impossible to get a used PC game.

gamingdroid2702d ago

It certainly possible to get used PC games on ebay. They are listed all over.

I don't use PC too much, but with this pass (if it works like Blizzards) then only one account can play online. That means, if I want other family members to play online, I can't without paying a fee for each of them to play online as well.

I've shown my disgust and put my money back into my pocket I was gona get this in the morning. Yet another title I'll have to miss out on.

GreenFields2702d ago

Don't get me wrong, I want to play this game. What I don't want to do is spend $60 on a game that will last me 1-2 sittings. I'll wait until Steam has it at 50% off.

This is unacceptable. i mean they didn't even fix the mouse lag issue? are you fuckin kidding me? good thing steam will probably have it on sale for 75% off this december. i got the first dead space for $6. cheaper than a renting on console where i live.

Damn, was really hoping this would be good for pc.

chainer30002702d ago

I just played through it on Steam, it was fantastic and looked great (better than console version). This article is mostly BS. Only complaint I have is DRM.

I mean, FFS, the main complaint of the article is the price - how does that have anything to do with the quality of the game? There are PLENTY of worse games out there priced at 60 dollars during RELEASE WEEK.

Really poor article.

Haha, I would say those 3 games sell ridiculously well compared to other PC games.

ic4ruz2702d ago

Umm The PC version is actually quite good. An improvement over the original.

And it had some minor launch issues that was resolved very quickly. Only bad thing I see is the 60$ price tag ):
