I am sorry but what anyone says Front Mission Evolved has a short / short storyline plus very bad game play trainer or not.

In Q2 of 2010, the sales of Gaming PC's, that is, PC's labeled as being made for gaming, outpaced the sales of all consoles combined.

And the sales of console games dropped, and PC games sales rose.

As quoted with citations in PC Gamer.

Its believed that this year will be the last great year for PC games on the whole. The upcoming years will see a steady decline of gaming on the PC, where exclusive and original games will be released via console instead.

So whether it be Aliens vs Predator, Mass Effect 2, Assassins Creed 2, Bioshock 2 etc. Make sure you BUY them, and not like most who I can easily pick out of the number of posting users here who dont buy, they are as transparent as oxygen.


Which now begs the question, should you fork out for future hardware upgrades such as GPU's and CPU's when they will become less and less useful due to the fact warez users for the PC market are on the rise per year.

So do the right thing and actually buy some or all of the ones you are really looking forward too. And not to steal it, play it start to finish with a trainer, then make a post declaring how easy or short it felt (of course it would be cause you used a trainer as an extra slap in the face to the developers after stealing their game).

What rubbish. Who is it "believed" by? The largest gaming markets in the world - China and Russia are growing exponentially and they are almost exclusively PC users. Not that that matters because there is no sign at all of a declining PC game market.

Tard thread.

The PC cannot be beaten. Neither by a console nor by an iphone.

No need to panic

If you look up for future releases, it invalidates this topic. I won't start enumerating every title I think of but this is a good argument coming from someone who made the same topic as this one las year.

I think CH is in and of itself, proof that the PC game market is anything but dead (or dying for that matter). Take a look at the future updates page, there's no shortage of material to be released.

Yea, do this, cause everybody in the world has at least 100 trees with dollars/euros in their backyards instead of leaves.

Call Of Duty MW2, Battlefield BC2 and StarCraft 2 alone owned everything else on PC. With Diablo 3, Guild Wars 2, SW TOR and the 2 other StarCraft campaigns coming out, the PC platform can live up 5 more years at a minimum.

Also, everything that is coming out on Live Arcade is out on Steam to so the 360 doesn't look like it has the "exclusive" market anymore.
