I think Tim meant the bit about a global conspiracy to make us all wage slaves.

I would if I could get past the Error 503 Service Unavailable - the store is overloaded with traffic. On my wish-list I saw Subnautica was 50% off

Tropico 5 complete collection with all DLC is 85% off

Yeah, it wasn't easy to compile this short list, let me tell you!

Honest mistake, have fixed. Thanks for pointing it out. My mind just filled that in for some reason. I have a Pro myself.

No worries, it just looked a little odd that one line was missing. I will remove my tinfoil hat for the time being.


All in all, after re-reading the interview it seems he is just on about consoles in general anyway.

Then how come exclusive games like The Order, Uncharted or HZD have an overall better image quality that 90% of PC exclusive titles?

Aaaaanyway, I think its important to remind people that Josef Fares is a film director first and foremost. And who has directed an astonishing number of two games so far, including A Way Out. Maybe not the authority you should listen to when it comes to gaming technology. Seriously, it sounds like Fares just talked to an actual dev who ranted about limited console specs like RAM management during the port of AWO, and is now reurgitating that for the presses.

I'd say the overall better image quality of console exclusives is more to do with the publishers pumping money into them.

The real question that needs to be asked whether you can sail a ship. Black Flag was by far the best AC they done.

You can!

Red Dead Redemption 2 gets a raft of new screens as console delay announcedRed Dead Redemption 2 gets a raft of new screens as console delay announced
Kirk McKeand Avatar

Red Dead Redemption 2 would be popular if nobody wrote a single article about it, so why would anyone pay us? We write about it because the vast majority of our audience cares. As for there being no PC version - we're taking an educated guess that's backed up by solid rumours.

See, instead of a direct "no, we do not get additional income from the companies or their representatives for these articles", you're giving me an indirect "why would anyone pay us?" answer instead. I don't know, these games have massive budgets and spread marketing dollars everywhere. It certainly can explain console exclusive news pc-gaming website.


And yes, of course the game is popular, I'm sure you could have gotten a lot of views writing about The Last of Us or Horizon Zero Dawn also, afterall, they're popular games too! You say your audience wants this, but I'd be very curious about the results of a poll asking if you should report on games that have not been confirmed for PC yet. I certainly know where my vote stands. I'd much rather see this space freed up for maybe a lesser known title that could use more attention if you're having a slow news day. I'm sure there are hundreds of indie developers that would jump at a chance for an article.


And aure, this is an educated guess, just like Destiny could have come to the PC, and hey, Bloodborne could also come to PC because the Dark Souls series has! It's nothing but a giant tease. Rockstar's policies clearly shows it considers PC gamers as second class citizens. Unless they're willing to commit to a confirmation, I don't think they should receive any additional exposure than they're already getting.


It's one thing to have one speculation article upon announcement, but I'm willing to bet this won't be the last one. IF it does come to the PC, I'm betting we'll see a dozen speculation articles leading up for YEARS about whether it COULD come to PC, oh my! It makes pc gamers look desperate and pathetic, like there aren't other games to play besides this and we jump through whatever hoops are set for us by the publishers. If it's coming to PC, great, let's hear all about it. If it's not or they refuse to tell us, then how about reporting on something else? Anything! Just something that's a PC game!


Stuff like this makes me want to go elsewhere for PC gaming news, I'll just leave it at that.

Oh nice! It threw me because it said "requires the base game to play" on Steam. Have updated now, thanks!

The future is bleak and full of people with designer arms. There are also television sets everywhere, even in the sewers. The future is weird.
