Yeah, mine had to be sent in because my bros kicked it one too many times and this current one is overheating so often that it becomes unusable. It sounds like an airplane hangar and shuts off after an hour or so.

In short; I'm glad I didn't buy it and spent my money on the just-as-fun Playstation 3.

I just ordered a laptop that'll be powerful enough to run new games, but I'll probably just use it for Starcraft 2.

For me, it was because a lot of companies started putting less effort into their PC ports, particularly Ubisoft. That, and the increased number of games with DRM crap really turned me off of a lot of PC games.

Oh yeah, DRM... That was why.

DRM is going away again now. Haven't had a game with Secure-Rom or anything in ages, possibly years. Plus Steam has almost everything these days anyway.

I hate computer gaming because shit gets outdated so quickly. I prefer being able to just buy a game and putting it into my console.

Don't get me started on Steam. Having to verify shit online whenever you play a single player game didn't seem like that big a hassle until I came across the other issue: forced patching.

The latest patch for Lost Planet introduced an unavoidable game-stopping bug, and since I can't not have it updated, I just had to uninstall it and put it away for good.

can't you just run steam in offline mode, or do they not let you do that anymore

I don't know. I struggled with the game for the better part of an afternoon before finally giving up and taking comfort in the fact that I still had a copy of the game that didn't require Steam at all.

PC is going the way of bullshit. PSN/XBLA work for the most part cause it's these smaller games that kind of dont belong in a retail box

But with actual full retail games, you want to own the damn thing, not have a license in 10 years. Steam expects you to keep the game for life, with no selling possibility, although I think Impulse is working on a solution for that

Killing Floor was a horrible purchase by the way

I went to play Empire: Total War after a reasonable hiatus, and I was told to come back later as the server was busy. WTF? I want to play single player you stupid thing, I don't require a server.. right? Later on it started to download a patch when the server was NOT busy, and yes, I thought then about turning off the internet etc, but it was already downloading.

Of course, it took forever because my connection was slow at the time, and after it was done I couldn't be arsed playing it anymore.


Still, PC is number one in my heart.
