Default Another exampler of why I hate gamers.

This is why I hate gamers. What a pathetic bunch of bitches they are. If you don't like this game don't buy it but to start a campaign to get people to not buy this game because of how it is set up is childish.

Yeah that's crazy; to have a view on something and try to convince other people to have the same view on things. What's this world coming to. Wait isn't that what you just did. Crazy.


Wait that's what I just did...wow did I just divide by KABOOM.

No, they are actively trying to get people to not buy a game because it doesn't support a piece of hardware very few people use. I am pointing things I hate about the mentality of video gamers.

Glad you can read.

Its not so much the fact that it dosnt support ultra wide aspect ratios. its the way the games devs responded about not supporting it.

Triple monitor gaming is a big deal to the hardcore community. And when you tell people no you cant use it even if the engine natively supports it. That's like taking all the alcohol away from a bar. you will have allot of pissed off people.

The reason you see the thread about avoiding the game is to make an example for other devs that might have the same response.

No ones bitching that starcraft 2 or whatever other random game that dosnt support multi monitors.

Anyways I dont think its a big issue and most games have support for it. Its nothing I was ever worried about and I didnt care about that game to begin with.

Despite the fact that I actively disagree with some of Kyle's "ways", he is onto something here.

The studio locking out multi-display support is the same as if BF:BC2 had FOV locked to 55, with DICE stating that it was locked because they felt that expanded FOV gives unfair advantage.

PC gaming is about having a choice, being able to customize, being able to use mouse, trackball, or laser pointer...one monitor or six... 80 degree FOV or 110. There have been instances of devs locking some things up lately, and it's making it suck for those who have exercised their choice.

For example I prefer the Bioshock games with a 360 pad, but I'm locked out of using that with any sort of ease in the sequel by the developer who decided to make a compromise after some controversy regarding the first release which I had a "just fine" time with (and still haven't finished it).

Am I going to stand by [H] and boycott this game? No, I'll not get involved. But I understand the resentment. I kinda loled at:

What is really fubarred here is the fact that a company named "Hi-Rez" won't let you play its games at "high rez." How screwed up is that? But you know, "Only Up to This Much Rez Studios" just does not have the same ring to it.

Its one thing to not support hardware, its another to purposely block it out.

How about this. If you don't like the games being made, the you put your money out there and you make the games. Sitting around crying about why things are not the way you want it makes you a..... gamer.

PC gaming isn't about options or choice. It is about making money. That's it. High Rez is a small company that took a big gamble on this game. It worked out for them and they have a solid game. The geek crying about this game did nothing to impact the sales of this small title.
