Just deleted some since I don't want a console vs. PC war in this forum...it's to stupid and we never agree anyway Posted Image

About Destiny...it looks pretty boring and I'am not gonna get it.

How? I have a PC for gaming, I also have a Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and Nintendo DS. I started my gaming on a NES, then SNES, had the original Game Boy, and many other consoles. I think both have their place and even though I personally am primarily a PC gamer now, it doesn't mean I don't understand if someone simply prefers consoles. But if you look at the history of console games and PC games in terms of MMORPG's and shooters, you should see the point I was trying to make, whether you agree with it or not...

I think that might apply to younger and possibly more casual console gamers who honestly haven't had much—if any—contact with PC gaming. I can't see that profile being representative of the average console gamer, though, and I'd think the majority of gamers either play or have played both platforms at some point. Or at the very least know about either platforms enough to know what's available on them and how well they rank.

While naivety might explain some of the praise, I think it's a very small part. And that can't be the case of professional reviewers, so either they get paid to put out positive reviews (that would be my guess) or there's genuinely "something" about the game, even if we don't get it or simply don't like it.

Publications definitely bias their reviews based on promised advertising money. It's a known fact, so that definitely plays a role.

Just bare in mind these are console gamers... I don't want to sound like "PC master race" but without being offensive about it, it is simply true that when it comes to shooters and MMORPG's, PC gamers might be a little bit more picky when it comes to that because we have such a rich history of shooters and MMORPG's that are more than just the typical ones we see now-a-days on consoles. To them, this is all new stuff, but seriously, every "new" feature they tout about, there has been many PC games that have had those features since forever. But it might not be the same for console games... So they might find more enjoyment in that as well. PC gamers have experience with so many MMORPG's, and so many shooters, there's really nothing in that game that would "Wow" us or that we haven't already seen in 20 other games before it...

They're going to beta test their GoG Galaxy service, which is basically their version of Steam. A client where you can add and organize your library, keep it updated and do all GoG related stuff through it, but also organize the online community for multiplayer titles.

Unlike Steam Galaxy is purely optional. I'm actually exited to see it in action, because that is what GoG has been missing, automatic updates and all this stuff.

I tried to play it more regularly online, but the unfixable FOV killed it for me.

Yah, I watched the little video to find out more about it. I think they must have a limited number of beta keys to give out, and I just know if I get picked, I'll probably use it once or twice and not really use it enough to find bugs or things they can improve, so I'll just let someone else go at it, and I'll wait until it is final...

AVP1 is free on gog, worth getting fantastic game, along with avp2 if you have not already got it. Along with isolation those two are really the only real quality ones when it comes to aliens


They are asking you to beta test something for them. I think I'll pass, only because I know I don't game that much, so I don't want them to waste a beta spot on me. Better if it goes to someone who will actually use it and give constant and relevant feedback. I just don't have that much time to play games anymore... Oh well.
