Re: CliffyB asked about Gears 2 on PC: "Never."
I personally won't get mad about this announcement because I think gears plays a little better with console controller anyways. Same with batman Arkham asylum. The 3rd person games just work well with controllers.
If you've got a good sound system and screen to play a console game on, it's really damn fun. And I'll personally take a lower resolution 50" screen + comfy couch and big sound system over a higher res 24" screen, hunched over the keyboard/mouse setup any day. I know that not every guy has that at home but there ARE ways to make console gaming more enjoyable without porting them to PC.
I originally waited for gears 1 to come out on PC so I got that and then when my brother came over and had it in his car, I popped his 360 version in mine and actually liked it a bit more.
So I just went ahead and got gears 2 a couple of months after it came out and really liked it. I'll be getting the 3rd one without hesitation.
I won't get chapped at epic if it never comes out on PC, I'll be chapped at them if I get it and it's a terrible game.
I don't see anyone nerd raging over god of war, gran tourismo or forza or mario/zelda games not coming out on pc. Why?
Why is it that gamers of all genres collectively ejaculate over these big platinum title games that are exclusive to 1 console yet when a game comes out for PS3 and Xbox, all of a sudden the PC gamers are out with their pitchforks? It's like when the God of war 3 reviews started to come out, guys were going out and buying PS3's JUST to play GOW3 but OH! Oh! gears and most likely halo 3 doesn't come to PC and we swear that they're treating us like animals... so lets all take a dump on their floor! That'll show em!
We aren't entitled to anything that the developers don't feel like giving us. Passing up on games that are good (regardless of system) simply because we can't have it as a PC port is dumb. Guys are practically giving away their elite 360's to get the new slims. A guy at our office sold his elite + power brick for $100. for us who will spend 3 times that (or a lot more) for a new video card, we really don't have many excuses to NOT have a 360 or PS3 to play some of these very good console exclusive games.
Ranting about a big title game because it doesn't come out on PC =/= reason to whine
Ranting about a big title game because it is a terrible game = reason to whine.
