Is that why they didn't make the port of Mass Effect for PC?

"When we're developing an RPG, it's a natural place to be"

I guess that explains it.

On the pc. The sky's the limit.

Pandamobile3740d ago

Microsoft owned the rights to it until EA bought Bioware, so that's why EA ported it.

Mass Effect 2 was developed for PC by Bioware.

Although late the original Mass effect Pc port turned out considerably superior to the 360 version with most of the bugs ironed out, the texture streaming/framerate/stutter problems eliminated and the HUD/weapon menu system much improved. Not to mention it included DLC for free 360 owners paid for.

Of course superior Pc hardware helped but it wasnt the whole advantage to buying it on PC. Demiurge did a good job.

You're right. On PC, the limit is not the sky. It's much much more than that. Personally, I'd rather say it has 'absolutely no limits'. PC FTW.

Sure, if trees we're flying among the stars above....actually, it's more like 'above the stars'. :P

If the PC's limits are just as high as "the trees" then the console limits are as high as a blade of grass that just got sliced by a lawn mower.

SW:TOR you're going to get lots of my KOTOR lovin' time, EA is lucky to have these guys.

dirthurts3740d ago

But I with they would have supported higher resolution textures and AA for the pc guys.
Mouse and keyboard worked very well in that game. Very very well.

Darkfocus3740d ago

there's no AA on any unreal engine games unfortunately. you can force it with riviatuner or a similar program though.

Valve - FPS games
BioWare - RPG games
Blizzard - RTS and Big MMO games

Those 3 are only deves who care about PC gaming

I also love Relic Entertainment and GSC Game World

Pumbli3740d ago

The Creative Assembly? id software? Fireaxis games?

evrfighter3740d ago

Id are you kidding? They were one of the first that blamed piracy rather than own up to their mediocre games.

CellularDivision3740d ago

The greatest devs this gen imo.

ultramoot3740d ago

Valve - FPS
Bioware - RPG
Blizzard - RTS/MMO
....and other devs like CD Projekt, GSC, etc.
They take care of all my gaming needs on PC.
