whizbangthedirtfarmer: Ah, the old console/PC biatchfest. Here's my two cents, which is probably worth far less than face value.

I have an XBox, a Wii, and a gaming PC I put together myself. I have a good number of games from Steam. I use all three of the devices frequently. Essentially, if I am playing something more casually, or a game I don't think will be particularly challenging, I will usually fire up the XBox. On the PC, I usually have the more time-consuming games, especially the strategy games like Total War and so on.

I can use them all and never consider myself beholden to one or the other. I enjoy each of them.


I tried to raise that point earlier and got called a retard, so:

RETARD! What a farking idiot! Drown your children, you're too stupid to breed!

/Purists should have their feet held over a fire until they admit; in writing, with a notary and no less than 3 witnesses; that Virtual Boy was the pinnacle of gaming technology, and nothing will ever replace it.

naughtyrev: I'm guessing this guy won't be so tough on a PC with mods that let you get all skill trees and craft some crazy stuff.


Or the consoles. My khajit has a bow that does about 260,000 damage a shot thanks to a couple alchemy exploits.

I do plan on killing this guy using normal, non-exploited means, but if he turns out to actually be a biatch like everyone describes, I'm not afraid to pull out my "Dragonbone Bow of Shang Tsung" (it has leeching and soul trap, thought it fit well)

Ummm...you realize that more people play consoles, which means if developers want the largest market for their games they make a game for consoles. If the developer does not spend the money to adequately port a game to PC or design a game specifically for the PC, how is it the fault of people who play consoles?

//Also, I hope you don't truly believe that comparing a society destroying, anti-intellectual government body to a form of entertainment is a valid comparison.


It's obviously the console players fault because they buy those games which give developers money which means they'll produce more console games to sell more and make more money. It's truly a terrible cycle that must be stopped through constant biatching on Fark threads.

I created this alt just for this thread: mooseyfate: I created this alt just for this thread: You know how I know that PC gaming is better than console gaming?

Steam.

When consoles get the ability to have access to thousands of games, most at below retail, that the player has access to from multiple different machines and locations (without having to carry around discs or hardware), give me a call. Until then, PC gaming rules, console gaming drools.

At that time, I'm sure you'll find a different shrinking iceberg of PC superiority to cling to. Eventually, it's just going to you and the print screen button against the world.

Oh, I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you over the sound of having a computer system that is exponentially more powerful, updgradeable, configurable, and capable than consoles will ever be.

Add to that MS and Sony are likely going forward with their "you must have an always-on internet connection in order to play anything" plans for their new consoles. Aside from MMOs and pure multiplayer games, the number of PC games out there that require an always-on connection can be counted on the fingers of one shop teacher's hand. Also don't forget that MS and Sony are potentially making it so that you can't play used games on the new boxes by making users register their individual copies of each game.

But please, keep telling us how consoles are just going to get better and better and not turn into a glorified corporate presence in your home that won't let you do jack shiat on it without permission from the Powers That Be®. We're all ears.


I'm not having this argument for the fiftieth farking time in this thread. Please go read some of my posts regarding the utterly retarded PC vs. console debate and realize how foolish you look railing against someone that isn't loyal to an inanimate object.

/do people with Real Dolls look at people that merely own Fleshlights the same way PC gamers look at console gamers?

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Enjoy it while it lasts. The tune has almost always changed among my buddies, and it is often pretty sudden (except for one woman who was unable to have kids). One day, she's all gaming conventions, and then a subtle hint about the future, and then POW! shiatty diapers up to your knees


In other words: "I used to be a child-less gaming parent like you, then I took a shiatty diaper to the knee".

Yeh, why have silk when you can have cotton? It's better to needlessly hamper yourself. Like when winter comes around, don't wear winter clothes, stick to shorts and t-shirts from summer, anything else is for wimps, right?

Foolass. You have one method of control that is absolutely perfect, and one that isn't, and you think choosing the one that isn't makes you better somehow? You need to grow more than merely a pair.

Flappyhead: Hope Bethesda makes it an actual challenge instead of 9999 HP and one hit kills.


Unfortunately, that's most likely the tact they'll take. That's pretty much what "uber boss" means nowadays: That One Boss that caters to the munchkin crowd, who crunch numbers and brute force their way through anything because god forbid they be forced to think. I shudder at the thought.

You know, the guys who say destruction sucks in Skyrim.

Because otherwise, they'd muck around until managing to smear the boss with one LAWL ARROWZ from the HAX CANNON! then proceed to go to forums everywhere to spam "OMGWTX BETH U SAID DIS WUD BE UBAR BOSS I ONE SHOT NOOB THIS GAME SUX". That's just the state of gaming right now, where a stupid ass tank and spank attrition fight that allows the player to wave their e-peen is "OMG SO EPIC GR8ST FITE EVAR".

CygnusDarius: Things I'd like to see for Skyrim:

1.- To help the Forsworn (not just in one mission, but an entire story arc. I liked the Forsworn, actually).

2.- To bring down the Thalmor (I'd like that a lot).


I am a live-and-let-live guy. Hell, for all intents and purposes, I'm a modern hippie. Ponytail, Prius, I'm that guy.

Let me play Skyrim for an hour, and I become exceptionally racist towards the Thalmor, and want to kill them all.

I find that interesting.

Rev. Skarekroe: It's hard to level up after a certain point. You have to use skills you don't actually have any use for. I'm wandering around Skyrim pickpocketing people and casting "detect life".


THIS. I finally stopped playing (with Dawnguard completed) at level 80. Now I'm going to have to do all kinds of random things to meet the new baddy. I play on Xbox so I'm confined to my 247 damage war axes which should make that encounter pretty interesting. Still, the depth of the content and size of the new explorable area may make the leveling a bit easier than expected.

/god I sound like a nerd. look what Skyrim did to me! I've never even played D&D or Warcraft!
/ok, but I did play Eye of the Beholder on my 486
/and I did finish Zork 1 & 2 on my Commodore
/Ultima was a really good series
