Begging for Planetside 2

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/475/663/550/urge-sony-online-entertainment-to-bring-a-ps3-version-of-planetside-2/

The sad thing is that even your official website begs for them PC games

http://www.officialplaystationmagazine.co.uk/2013/08/14/9-pc-games-we-want-on-ps4/

Oh man. Let the ownage begin.

1. First off, herms always love to move the goal posts, so as to save face. The chart clearly says Gen 7 GOTY.

Anything you have listed in '04, wasn't gen 7. So say bye bye to Half-Life 2 and Wow. PC still got toasted in goty exclusives...even if you do add those.

2. I have Polygon listed. Why are you complaining?

3. Witcher 2 isn't a pc exclusive.

As for the petitions...

1.

Begging for Titanfall

http://www.change.org/petitions/ea-respawn-entertainment-release-titanfall-for-ps3-ps4

(First...Titanfall isn't a pc exclusive. Second....48 SIGS!! BAHAHA!!)

2.

Begging for ArmA 3

http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/bohemia-interactive-studio-505-games-got-game-entertainment-bring-the-arma-series-to-console

(6 SIGS!!! BAHAHAHA!!)

3.

Begging for Day Z

http://www.change.org/de/Petitionen/dean-hall-dean-hall-release-dayz-on-consoles

(21 SIGS! BAHAHAHA!!!)

4.

Begging for Witcher 2 (Not pc exclusive)

http://www.change.org/petitions/cd-projekt-red-port-the-witcher-2-on-the-ps3

(576 SIGS!! BAHAHAHA!!!)

5.

Begging for Diablo 3

https://www.change.org/petitions/bring-diablo-3-to-the-consoles-playstation-3-xbox-360-and-wii-u

(109 SIGS!! BAHAHAHA!!)

6.

Begging for Planetside 2

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/475/663/550/urge-sony-online-entertainment-to-bring-a-ps3-version-of-planetside-2/

(1 SIG!!! BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!)

7.http://www.officialplaystationmagazine.co.uk/2013/08/14/9-pc-games-we-want-on-ps4/

(That's an article written by one individual. Not signatures.)

First off... do make sure you check how many sigs there are before posting. Leads to less self ownage.

And let this be a lesson to you. Don't you ever come at me again unless you're thoroughly locked and loaded.

Owning herms is what I do.

The vast majority of those games aren't even exclusives yet somehow your dimissing Titanfall

http://www.change.org/petitions/respawn-make-titanfall-available-on-the-ps4

here one with over a thousand signatures

not only there are multiple of them

I don't think you understand the nature of this.

Herms lump consoles together, hence the term "console peasant." Thus, games that are only found on consoles, are fair fodder against herms.

This is common knowledge.

Than why are there threads claiming superiority over which console has the better games and hardware. Clearly many people do not see them as if they were the same.

My chart is directly from MC. Your chart is made by a 3rd party SystemWars fanboy and doesn't include many publications, and is just about a singular award rather than all games.

Furthermore, http://systemwarsmagazine.com/gamespot-reviews-spreadsheet/

I will concede to these facts,

Consoles(not including xbox360 it had none)

  • Has more GOTYs

PC

  • Has more AAA/AAgames. Both total and exclusive. Also more A games if you want to count those.
  • Has the better version of most games, aka multiplats. Even this gen, ps4 is really bad in this department.
  • Better gfx and performance
  • More features and better online with the top competitive play.
  • More genres, better indy, better f2p.

My gaming PCs are for exclusive games only (I have four rigs).

Until PC games allow the benefits of used games, as a collector I can't justify supporting multiplats on it unless they are pennies on the dollar. I love Blizzard, I have hundreds of DD games from GOG, Steam, Origin, etc...but I am very careful on what I buy on PC. I would love to lend out games that I don't play to family and I would LOVE to sell DD games that I despise that I bought on sale and turned out to be duds, but I can't on PC. I know Steam, one of the many PC retailers has some ideas, but it's not enough and certainly not universal.

Most of all, as a gaming historian and collector, I value non DRM retail physical copies of games. Something I can share with my offspring years now, or sell if I chose too.

I'm glad technology keeps going forward and I'm looking forward to the exclusive PC experiences coming in the future like StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, etc.

100% in agreement with you here brother. Every time I've opted to go for the digital download route for a game I've regretted it. And not just PC, I've downloaded a few games on PSN as well.

With physical copies when I'm done with a game I can sell it. I can get lazy and sell it to Gamestop, or I can sell it on ebay or craigslist for a better deal. I can trade with a friend, or just lend it to them. I can rent games too, with the option to buy the game if I like it. The few pennies I might save on a Steam sale is never even close to compensating for giving up that freedom.

And to be honest except for the rare exception, most of the Steam sales aren't that great. A lot of deals are on poorer titles. For the better games they're still pretty pricey. $25 for Baldur's Gate? $30 for Skyrim with no DLC? What's up with that? Nah I'd rather have the physical copy. Takes me 5 minutes to get to the store and pick up a game which is more convenient than choking my bandwidth up for hours at at time downloading these titles.

not all cpus comes with apu and not all intergrated onto the motherboard are capable of playing a game properly.

No software rendering support is killing pc gaming aswell as bullshit like steam which is just a fucking drm u dont own any game u buy.

also the multiplatform development is killing pc gaming.

cd keys and secure rom is killing pc gaming aswell.

Fuck 2014

Long live the great days of pc gaming in the 90s

QUAKE 2 FOREVER

Whatever floats a person's boat! :)

We all have our pet peeves and your anecdotes are certainly viable in my eyes.

Plus I see retail physical copies on sale all the time as well for less than even $10 on amazing games. If you are patient, you can get better prices than Steam/gog/greenman/etc and it will be a retail sellable version. That said, I have hundreds of PC games that are digital (even more if I count console DD games). Retail physical copies also have the benefit of being tangible stock that retailers don't have a lot of room for as time presses on and those copies end up having to discount to make room for future stock all the time. That stock issue doesn't happen in the digital realm. I only go digital when there isn't another option and I want the game like some indie game or the future SCII LotV (which they will also sell at retail, but no matter how you slice it Blizzard's games are digital).

I'm just very careful on my purchases, especially as I get older.

So long as one know what they are doing, I doubt it's any different from a normal wheelbase truck. Just different angles.

Lol, now are we going to start a Euro vs US/CAN trucking war? :P

European trucks are designed to fit into smaller spaces, but many trailer configurations that allow for that greater flexibility carry less freight than North American trucks. I can guarantee you that twin 53" tandems would be impossible to use effectively almost anywhere in Europe.

And hey, I play Euro Truck Sim 2 all the time and love both kinds of trucks. I see these people warring on Youtube all the time. Professional drivers from everywhere are all awesome.

Haha this.

PC gaming has become a joke. If it wasn't for the indies there would be nothing interesting on PC at all.

Sucks to be a PC only gamer.

Sucks to be a console only gamer like you poor pathetic souls. Having to play significantly inferior versions of the vast majority of games and the only positive thing you have to hold onto is a handful of exclusives you may or may not even like. Now that sucks.

It's much better to have a gaming PC and enjoy the majority of games at their absolute best as well as the many PC exclusives. Then, if you want, you can also get a console or two to play the few exclusives they offer.

Do you even have a PC? This comment is extremely laughable. Whether you like it or not, Microsoft and Sony will eventually have their way and eliminate used games and Physical games as a whole.

1) Sell it to Gamestop for what? 2 dollar credit towards your next game? You really think selling a game for 10 dollars max is a better option than to have possession of a game forever? Digitally, you will never, ever lose that game and your saves will go with you, regardless of which system you're playing the game on.

2) Where are you going to rent games. Blockbuster?

3) Pennies? lol comments like these make me doubt you own a gaming PC. Weekly humble bundles usually give you 5 very good games for 5 dollars. Skyrim is 5 dollars AT LEAST 6 or 7 times a year, for at least 2 weeks at a time. Again, hours at a time downloading these games? What is this? 2002? Most people have 5+mbs download speeds. The average 7gB takes 30minutes to download. Faster than going to the store for most people and much more convinient.

4) To each their own but that opinion makes you seem like a very very typical console peasant.

Hopefully the future of PC gaming is simply gaming as a whole. It's time to do away with these crappy closed standard consoles. Look what consoles do, they make people sit around squabbling about which netbook APU can squeak out 900p or 1080p at 30 fps on medium settings, talking about 1.8 TFLOPS like that's impressive. Meanwhile PCs are sitting there with 5 TFLOPS of unused potential because the industry is currently dominated by these underpowered pieces of crap.

Maybe Steambox can change the game and make people realize using low end hardware for 8-10 years is stupid. Imagine how much faster progress could be made if we didn't have to wait a decade for the standard to go up, and instead only had to wait maybe 2-3 months?

I hope the hell not. I much prefer consoles for gaming over PC.

Consoles have practically given away all their old advantages over PC. They now have the same architecture, same controllers, same APIs, mostly the same games, same video output (HDMI, can go to TV), and after Steam OS releases, more or less the same kinds of OS. So, why would you prefer an outdated PC that is upgraded once every 10 years vs a real PC that can be as powerful and cutting edge as you want?

Hey there. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to shit on you.

1) was addressed in my original post. Incredible that I was able to rebuff and obliterate your argument before you even made it.

2) Gamefly, Redbox... You live under a rock?

3) Speaking of 2002 you must still think we're living in the PS2 era if you think games are going to continue to be single dvd size.

4) I'm your daddy.

5) Owned.

PS. You think being stripped of your rights of ownership is the new norm. Microsoft just conceded the console race to Sony for having the same reasoning. You're shitty and an enemy to gaming.

#125 Posted by melonfarmerz (1294 posts) -

@Pray_to_me:

1) sorry i didn't read your original post and I will continue not to. I tend to ignore all your posts because you are in the same class as XboxDone in terms of spewing anti PC BS. I just stumbled across this post.

2) Don't act like Gamefly and Redbox are actually popular services. Renting games is done by a very small minority

3) I have 120 Steam games and I can assure you the average is 6 or 7 gigs. Definately on the rise though. Nonetheless, you have no right to say download speeds are a downside. It's your own fault for having speeds form 02.

4) You're a peasant. I normally don't use that word but for essentially saying "in my opinion, inferior tech is better than newer, better tech", you're a peasant. That's like that one guy a week ago who said "In my opinion, 30fps is better than 60fps because it's more cinematic"

5) out of curiosity, do you even have a gaming PC?

When I left PC gaming and became a console exclusive gamer I averaged a library of about ten games at any given time.

I came back to PC gaming four years ago, and now I have a library of over three hundred games.

When I was a console gamer, I spent about fifty bucks a month on games.

Now that I am a PC gamer, I spend about seventy five bucks twice a year, and between thirty five and sixty dollars pre-ordering games three times a year (God bless GMG. Pre-ordered BL2 for $34.75!)

The above four reasons are half the reason I am a PC gamer. If gaming is your primary hobby, PC gaming is by far the cheapest way to go. The other half is the fact that sometimes I like to nerd out with insane games like Anno 2070 and Gnomeria. As long as PC gaming sticks to this trend and gives me the chance to be an uber logistics doof, the future is indeed glorious. All the FPS and resolution talk is just silly in my book. Sure, I have been playing in 1080p since 2010 because I am a PC gamer, but I would gladly go to 900p to to have such a huge, diverse, and enduring library.

Being a PC peasant is freaking awesome. The Kid in me who used to bust their hump to earn five bucks to blow at a nickle arcade squeals with delight at every steam sale.

The sad thing is that even your official website begs for them PC games

http://www.officialplaystationmagazine.co.uk/2013/08/14/9-pc-games-we-want-on-ps4/

Oh man. Let the ownage begin.

1. First off, herms always love to move the goal posts, so as to save face. The chart clearly says Gen 7 GOTY.

Anything you have listed in '04, wasn't gen 7. So say bye bye to Half-Life 2 and Wow. PC still got toasted in goty exclusives...even if you do add those.

2. I have Polygon listed. Why are you complaining?

3. Witcher 2 isn't a pc exclusive.

As for the petitions...

1.

Begging for Titanfall

http://www.change.org/petitions/ea-respawn-entertainment-release-titanfall-for-ps3-ps4

(First...Titanfall isn't a pc exclusive. Second....48 SIGS!! BAHAHA!!)

2.

Begging for ArmA 3

http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/bohemia-interactive-studio-505-games-got-game-entertainment-bring-the-arma-series-to-console

(6 SIGS!!! BAHAHAHA!!)

3.

Begging for Day Z

http://www.change.org/de/Petitionen/dean-hall-dean-hall-release-dayz-on-consoles

(21 SIGS! BAHAHAHA!!!)

4.

Begging for Witcher 2 (Not pc exclusive)

http://www.change.org/petitions/cd-projekt-red-port-the-witcher-2-on-the-ps3

(576 SIGS!! BAHAHAHA!!!)

5.

Begging for Diablo 3

https://www.change.org/petitions/bring-diablo-3-to-the-consoles-playstation-3-xbox-360-and-wii-u

(109 SIGS!! BAHAHAHA!!)

6.

Begging for Planetside 2

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/475/663/550/urge-sony-online-entertainment-to-bring-a-ps3-version-of-planetside-2/

(1 SIG!!! BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!)

7.http://www.officialplaystationmagazine.co.uk/2013/08/14/9-pc-games-we-want-on-ps4/

(That's an article written by one individual. Not signatures.)

First off... do make sure you check how many sigs there are before posting. Leads to less self ownage.

And let this be a lesson to you. Don't you ever come at me again unless you're thoroughly locked and loaded.

Owning herms is what I do.

That fooking gaping is legendary. They try and keep trying despite getting destroyed on the petition front. I can't tell if they are really too stupid to check if the petitions have any signatures, or think they are clever and nobody else will notice. Then, bragging about goty from like two generations ago hahaha. They were probably still potty training when Halflife 2 came out!

Does the future include more facebook crap and f2p hell? Will it include GTA5? More halfass ports? The majority of PC gamers will be chinese in a few years, and it will be their job not a hobby.

@mr-powers: That sounds stupid . Seriously , console gamers will now decide when PC generation starts and ends .? What the hell is this generation when it comes to PC .? Does this have something to do with release dates .? Or visuals .? Or gameplay innovation .? There are no generations on PC , anyone who treats it like console generations is idiot . PC is backward compatible and there are no generations on it .

It's really stupid that they even think trying to get more games on your preferred platform is something bad. Most PC gamers are enthusiast gamers and we will own consoles in order to play the games that don't make it to PC, but if we had the choice we'd rather play them on our PCs.

When you have a nice PC why in the hell would you choose to play a game on a console if you could play it on your PC?

Oh my sweet shit, thaaank you. Jerk-off consolites will never get that through their heads no matter how many times you try to pound it in.

I HAVE the consoles to play the exclusive games. But i would REALLY rather play Destiny in 1440p/60fps with my Nvidia overrides and a m/kb.

But no.. instead ill play it on a console.. where i cant do those things. And the game is locked down to what the developers spoon feed us ( not just talking about Destiny at this point ). No mods. No tweaks. No nothing.

Even though consoles have become more complex, and PC's have sort of got less complex because of better software and hardware, consoles is still the best place to be for the average gamer. PC has to become far less complex in it's software to be a good enough gaming device for the average gamer. Maybe running an extra OS that is developed for gaming.

What has become far simpler is the hardware though, since you need less components in the PC, no need for audio card or physics card. The GPU is becoming more and more the main chip to run games. They handle physics, sound, graphics, and soon it will have it's own processor to do the work of the CPU.

I guess in the future the only component you will need in a gaming PC is the GPU.

@Cloud_imperium: Pretty much. It's always the same 5 or 6 people who've never touched a PC trying to dissect PC into gens and what not.

So I actually watched the video and my favorite part was "Building a PC is fun".

I was in shock and laughter. I am a console gamer and I am terrified of the thought of attempting to build my own PC. I don't know the difference between the 50 graphics cards, sound cards, motherboards etc. Then I have to research all that stuff and learn what I want. Then I need to find the right Power unit, find a case, find a HDD. Then you expect me to put all that stuff together? You expect me put that all together? What if the card I buy does not fit into one of those PCI slot things? How the hell would I install an intercooler?

Then actually installing an OS, updating games, finding drivers.....this sounds like the opposite of fun to me when I can just spend the $400 on a console and just play games.

This sounds like an impossible and daunting task for me. Sorry, but I am a not a nerd like you guys. You got too many options and you don't explain it easy enough. I would kill myself trying to make my own PC.

It's not impossible. While it may seem overwhelming, it's actually pretty okay. There are GPU and CPU hierarchy charts that can help you to identify which is better, benchmarks that can help you see how a game performs, 20 minute video tutorials that teach you how to clean and assemble your PC etc. Installing an OS is nothing more than hitting the next button and finding and installing drivers is nothing more than googling the latest stable drivers, downloading them and installing them.

Anandtech, tomshardware, Hexus, Eurogamer's Digital Foundry are all excellent sites that can help.

Twenty minute sessions of daily reading can help you save a lot of money as PC games are cheaper. It's better to hold on to consoles for their exclusives, and PCs for multi-platform and/or PC exclusive titles.

Consoles have less aaa/aa games than PC, fewer genres, practically non-existent competitive scene in comparison, less devs, worse gfx, VASTLY worse performance, and worse version of nearly all multiplats.

But PC has more petitions.....you got us there LOL LOL LOL.

Even though I disagree with xboxdone, that's kind of the same.

And it's funny how you say stay jelly peasant when you are the one asking for console games.

Where am I asking for console games? And even if I was, how is that a bad thing? Are you implying that console games are somehow not good? And lastly, if PC gamers get better versions of console games then that's obviously something a console gamer could be jealous of.

Both scenarios involve Pc gamers wanting console games.

So what? Do you have a point or something? Consoles have great games, great games are best played on PC, so how exactly is it bad to want some of those great console games on PC?

Nailed it. Fully agree with you @walloftruth. PC also has great exclusives as well.
