I will never again pay for a PC game.

Hence why I play on a console. No complicated updates, no lag, no crashing, no compatibility issues.

Too bad they can't get modded like we do it on the PC. Also to to the cheaters out there: No Trainers (Wii Trainers are an exception).

My Hot Pursuit worked perfectly. Then yesterday I lost all my levels as an Interceptor along with all my cars and I can't change any control under Controls. Even after re-install.

As for New Vegas, it doesn't crash for me but it's boring as hell. Fallout 3 > New Vegas.

Yeah, but consoles force you to play on Sony's and Microsoft's terms.

When you game on a computer, you play on your own terms.

First of, what terms?

Second, where in Thrawn's situation do you find anything remotely close to playing a game on your own terms? Hell, he can't even play the damn things.

The thing about consoles is, they're useless for people like me that love to snoop around the inner workings of the games in question.

I can honestly say that 50% or more of my total game time for any given game is spent scanning around the memory, the files, or just modding/cheating the crap out of it.

That's the way I enjoy my games, EULA's be damned. Consoles just don't offer the same game experience for me.

As to the problems, do what Toreador said, get a scene release, try it out, see if and how it runs on your PC, see if it has unbearable or unimportant bugs, etc. After you're satisfied it's good, or after you consider it isn't worth your money until a proper patch is released, buy it.

That's what I've been doing for the last years, and I've saved myself a lot of trouble...

That is sad, but most developers bring out sh*t for PC...
That is why i don't buy many games anymore, most time only indie games or games from companies like valve, where quality is how it should be.

It is realy sad, but i believe PC is dead as gaming platform. (with some exceptions)
You can see it at the crapy DLC policy, where you have to pay for example 15€ for 2-3 Maps (MW2) what is to much. Earlier you got you map editor for free and was able to create own maps.
Or Mafia II where you got 70% of the game and have to pay to upgrade it to full game.


And at the end you have copyprotection which is just horrible. (Ubisoft)
At the end your game runs better if you download/crack it, what is sad. So people don't see any reason to buy games and game developers make more sh*ty games.


Realy can understand how you feel :S
