    I don't think that article is arguing it's the best game ever...I also disagree. Great game, but I'd rather play Planescape again

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic The flaw in the attach rate narrative. on the System Wars board

    @JustPlainLucas: that's not the metric being thrown around though, near as I can tell. People are leveraging the attach rate of individual games, not how many games in general bought per console.*edit...

    @tgob89: yes sorry, this thread: https://www.gamespot.com/forums/system-wars-314159282/which-is-better-pc-or-consoles-and-why-33432910/?page=1You were arguing that console is the best place to play

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic The flaw in the attach rate narrative. on the System Wars board

    @tgob89: *This is a question that any console fan could easily answer for their system*Or will the response be a generic list of games that few people have heard of and even less people care about? Pe...

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic The flaw in the attach rate narrative. on the System Wars board

    @tgob89: fair enough. Why would you argue attach rate doesn't mean much (or at least not much good) but turn up your nose at under the radar games that might nevertheless be amazing though?

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic The flaw in the attach rate narrative. on the System Wars board

    @tgob89: what hermits? PC gamers probably have the smallest attach rates due to the volume of the library. Ironically, you're the one who runs around "loling" over "games nobody has heard of" (a disti...

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic The flaw in the attach rate narrative. on the System Wars board

    @Shewgenja said:I see high attach rates as a failure. For one thing, you absolutely need to have a low ownerbase to have one. Secondly, the argument comes from a place where gamers are some contiguou...

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic Do you pay attention to video game stories?. on the System Wars board

    Definitely. Unless it's just nonsense like Bayonetta. Then I give up. But the game would be better if the story made some semblance of sense. It's a powerful motivator

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic State of Decay 2: Why no performance mode?. on the System Wars board

    I'm not sure that they could. It's got dynamic resolution but still has frame drops, and DF speculated that's down to the CPU. I'm inclined to agree, because the performance issues on PC at least seem...

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic State Of Decay 2 is definitely not a 5/10. Do they need to fire some game reviewers?. on the System Wars board

    The review is actually extremely accurate. I enjoy it a fair bit, but it's a hot mess and full of missed opportunities. You can either be like me and go "eh but I like it anyway" or settle in for a li...

    @Gamerno6666: yeah it was a glib remark - especially since some people really like or even rely on some commercial apps you can't get for Linux.

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic DF: State of Decay 2 Analysis. on the System Wars board

    Ouch. It runs like butter on an i5 6500 and GTX970 @1080p with settings maxed. There is, however, one notable exception - I get substantial stutter in some high-speed driving scenarios. It sounds lik...

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic Which is better PC or consoles and why?. on the System Wars board

    Why do people bring up controllers in these discussions? Are people really unaware that you can play the same games with the same controller on PC?

    Lol, that's exactly the kind of news that invites movie game comments from the lems.

  • xantufrog posted a message in the forum topic Apple reject Valves Steam Link App. on the System Wars board

    Apple is just awful. I hate using their products. If you like OSX, get Ubuntu. It's faster and more stable

    I don't want to pile on, but I think whatever Microsoft has to reveal. These super awesome secret games they are working on... I suspect this is going to be a very underwhelming conclusion
