    Man I love PC gaming.I still play Doom/Quake/Heretic and the rest to this day, using source port mods that make them feel more modern (WASD, high-res, etc.). Still so fun, better than singleplayer Ca...

    Good words Jeff. Glad to read them.This site can maintain its style and still be a welcoming place for everyone at the same time. Let's prove it!

    I think Giant Bomb is a very "dudes hanging out playing games" kind of site. I further do not think there's anything wrong with sites focusing on that kind of vibe, as long as everyone is free to mak...

    Dan fits in well, glad to have him aboard. You guys are wrong about stealth though! If you can muster the patience to play them right it can be the most rewarding genre out there. Thief 2 and Chaos T...

    I'd really like to know how open that second level was. If it's like Crysis I'll probably play this eventually.

    Looks better than most retro style platformers on Steam. Not a huuuuuge fan of the genre, but will probably grab this one. Thanks guys!

    I liked Raven's last Wolfenstein game as well. Hidden gem in my opinion, along with Singularity. Haven't gotten around to this new Wolf game yet, seems too story-heavy and linear judging by the quick ...

    Nintendo "won" E3 if you really like Nintendo games and wanted to see more of them.Nintendo was completely irrelevant at E3 if you aren't in that camp.

    Glad this video finally shows me what kind of game this is, so I know I don't care about. Not saying it looks bad, in fact it looks very well made, but I have no interest in online games of this natu...

    Oh man, so pumped for this. I tried to play GTA5 on a PS3 but my PC gamer brain just couldn't do it. Now I can finally enjoy this sucker.Got a new PC in the making for October. So many games!!!

  • StingingVelvet posted a message on the post Capcom's Bringing Dead Rising 3 to PC Soon.

    @icantbestopped: Yes but Microsoft has a huge vested interest in making sure Windows is still relevant in 20 years. PC gaming is a big part of that, as they seem to be realizing.
