And not a single word about Gothic! I liked the freedom of first two parts of the series. You did what you wanted because you could. You could, for instance, kill everyone and there were no plot-caused boundaries. Also, there were no simple solutions served you on a silver plate. Even map wasn't there for free, but that was what I liked in this series.
Yeah, Gothic II is a good mention. I, for that matter. Good work.
Without the humor and lighter approach, Bad Company will lose it's character and will fade in the background of FPS landscape. I played BFBC2 with smile on my face because of funny dialogs and colorful main characters. I feel like it could be the game where DICE would be able to experiment more with mechanics and whatnot, without having to sacrifice the Battlefield franchise name and position on the market..
Very strong point of Steam Controller is that you can play the games without pad control implemented. But still, aiming for these headshots wasn't even close to one performed with mouse.
It's hard to say that his argument is invalid, but in the other hand, piracy isn't a new thing and devs could live with it.
Devs are not completely clean either. Day zero DLCs, furiously strong DRMs that prevent you from playing (like I had with GTA IV) and game prices growing and growing despite of this miraculous sales model. This isn't what PC gaming used to be and I think it's hard to expect any improvements if both sides won't cooperate.
PC platform have its' drawbacks, but in exchange offers much longer game life (just look at CS 1.6 or Morrowind), involves community in many ways and if the game is good enough it can have it all and generate a lot of income.
First Wild Star, then Elder Scrolls Online. With this many F2P titles, it could be hard to stay P2P for long. If I would have to gues, I'd say December 2014.
