Not sure if this has been posted, but what happened to the days when console games just worked. Now we have to tweak the ini's for consoles?!

Thankfully this may just be a one off (Although Quak4 360 comes to mind), and the game is pretty shocking all round and not worth the bother. Still what if there's more to come?

hah wow we have to tweak the settings now on consoles as well?... one of the main benefits of consoles was to have peace of mind that you dont have to tweak/upgrade anything

That's a bad example with Two Worlds. That is one of the worst games out. Period. Its poor quality at best. In the past, you would have just been stuck with a horribly performing game. (Which there are hundreds of console games that meet that description). But now you can at least salvage some to some extent.

I get your point, and totally agree with you, but Two Worlds is just a horrible game, period. Now, there is at least a way to semi fix it while in the past you were just stuck with a horrible game.

Heh, that's kind of funny. I'm not at all opposed to having a few settings on consoles, but I wouldn't start tweaking every game just to get better fps.

Lame. First we started getting patches. Now we get this. I quit PC gaming to get away from this kind of BS. Next thing we know console games will start installing securom and starforce on our consoles, ****ing up the other games we play.

Only the games that suck 110% will you have to tweak. Two Worlds sucks so yeah, it fits the bill.

Yeah. I know it's a bad example as it really is a bad game. But I like your point about atleast being able to do something about performance. Didn't think of it that way. :D

I agree... Patches, multiplayer focus and requirement too often, downloads, "we'll fix it after release" attitude... Consoles are becomming more and more PC by the day and most people jumped to console for the easier experience.

Anyway, it all matters little since in a few years all games will be Wii Sports-like casual crap. ;)

Sorta OT...

but Crainger, if you've been console gaming for more than 10 years, have you heard of this game?

It was only reased in Japan, Austrailia and Europe; US never got it... so I've only played it via emu. It's my favorite game that I don't own.

I've only be a console gamer since the original Xbox. Even then my collection is limited. Right now is the first time I've had 2 out of the 3 top consoles (Wii is coming soon). So no never heard of that one. Although I've probably seen it in action as my best mate is a huge Nintendo fan.

Been a PC gamer since 1987 though. :D

Could you ask him if he has that game? :D

I'd pay for a PAL SNES, too. Gotta get my hands on the game.

If he has it, I doubt he would sell. I'll ask anyways.

I have NEVER had to tweak a console game even once. This is a bad example.

I dunno.. I like patches. It shows the developer really cares about it's customers, not to mention they almost always make the game better.

I like games that don't require patches.

I love the giant 200mb+ ones that auto download as soon as the game is installed. Gives me extra time to read the manual. Or print the manual as is the case these days.

I wonder how many people won't read that beforehand and complain about it.
