Everyone keeps saying that PC gaming is either dead or dying, that just simply isn’t true. PC gaming is just as popular as it has ever been, it’s just that the popularity of consoles are increasing. Retailers are assuming that everyone has ditched PC games and have moved on to consoles but the truth is, PC gamers have ditched retailers.
DRM in general is pretty sad. If big companies like EA and Ubisoft can’t make unbreakable DRM, indie game developers certainly aren’t going to be able to. So when you use DRM you end up with a situation where your legitimate users are punished with security checks and key registrations while the pirates have clean cracked copies that they can do whatever they want with. Those incentives are backwards. The humble bundle approach is to try to make the customer experience as awesome as possible and the DRM free approach is a large part of that.
Later, when we released Swords & Soldiers for WiiWare as Ronimo, it just made sense to do a PC version. We already had a PC build internally for development purposes, and we were already building a cool multiplayer mode with the help of SOE for the PSN version. It just needed Steam integration and broader hardware and software support to make it ready for release.
These parts and components can be pretty hard to source. Often it’s a case of trawling the web to find the right computer components, which can be extremely time consuming. Until now that is. The team at ADMI appreciate that these groups have specialist needs. So they stock PC parts aimed at these users and sell them all through one website. Which means no more trawling and searching high and low for the right equipment.
This also includes The ROG bundle softwares, a 3DmarkVantage is a standard Curved Gaming Monitors benchmark design for Windows Vista and DirectX10. A Kaspersky anti virus is also provided to keep you safe from any malicious software programs.
Some developers admitted their games were too hard upon release because they became experts as they developed the game. Talk about setting the difficulty levels for Swords and Soldiers and if you faced a similar challenge.
Hackers are the bane of computer gaming existence. These people alter the code of the game to help them give them a better score and to just frustrate the other players. They have made playing a game without having someone type of the word hacker. Even legitimate players that are good cannot go without someone upset about being killed several times. This is the modern witch hunt. Gamers point the finger at someone else, proclaiming that he or she is cheating. Usually with no prove, but all the same, someone cannot be that good. The frustration on both sides seems to be blowing over. Everyone is causality in this war to find hackers.
So, fellow readers and PC gamers, support the industry you so dearly love. We shoud consider ourselves lucky that Far Cry 2 was simultaneously released on both the PC and consoles, but that may not be the case in the future. How would you like it if Far Cry 3 was a console only game? I hope you see the trend the PC gaming industry is taking. One of the only ways to revive the industry is to stop pirating! Bottomline: Either buy the game and look forward to better games or pirate the game and not even think about a sequel.
