Unfortunately, for every strong and decently dressed female character that fits the mold of HL2's Alyx Vance, there will almost certainly be a variety of modifications geared towards that youthful male demographic which resemble the efforts of Fakefactory.

How is that unfortunate?

Video games.

Internet, work.

I compensate one with others, the only one that is harmed is my social life. Well, it was harmed before, now that cannot happen any further. So I guess I'm fine.

OK, some of you may not like this, but, is it possible to use a receiver for the 360 controller on PC (I know those exist) and play on PC with the same layout and in general without differences WRT control when compared with the 360 version?

Well yes, or just plug a wired controller in directly to a USB port. Don't know why you'd bother trying to get a wireless one to work.

I already have two of those for the XBox, may get another one (with the new pad), and I think one receiver can work simultaneously with several, also the receiver costs one half or one third the price of a controller.

But the point is that it works fine with this game and most games, I guess everything multiplatform can be used exactly in the same way in PC as in consoles, that's the way it should be and that's great.

Thank you.

I like larger game areas and more room to move around. 512MB limits that. We need new consoles with more memory for larger (or more detailed) game areas. Also the skyboxes in mass effect 2 suck as a direct result of memory limitations.

I would pay for a new console if the only thing it delivered is non-disgusting skyboxes at 1080p. Totally worth it.

Sorry to go slightly offtopic, but, do you know if those skyboxes are in the PC version? Just to know how are they doing the ports (I mean whether consoles are limiting quality in PC games).

I thought this could be better here.

Does someone know if this problem happens in the PC version as well? that would mean not enough resources were used to make the port, which would be sad.

I guess that doesn't happen, but I dunno.

Thank you.

Wasn't final boss in Bulletstorm supposed to be gigantic?

will a game like Assassin's Creed benefit from using a better hardware? it'll be the same core experience regardless of the improvements (better textures , bigger worlds, better crowd IA), what makes people think that having a PS4 or the Xbox360-2 means that games will somehow have better than the ones we're playing now? at best it'll take more than a year after the launch of the next-gen systems until deveopers come out with great working ideas for games, to me gaming evolves with creativity, vision and pushing not conventional ideas to the front not by exhibiting technical prowess.

If it's going to take one year after the launch of the next-gen systems until developers come out with great new ideas that means that next-gen consoles are going to be launched one year later than they should, which means that maybe they should have been launched already and maybe "we desperately need a new generation of consoles". Also bigger worlds, crowd AI and textures make better games, among many other things. Also crysis 2 looks better on PC already. Also, developers took some more time to realize current graphics allowed a game like LA Noir, with facial expressions as part of the gameplay, what more could they do next gen? we will see that next gen.

I usually watch some video with a description of the game and play a demo.

A game being good doesn't imply I will like it, I'll never like a sports game, for instance, or those realistic war FPS. I have some in my wish list because I'll play some demos at some point to check what's all the fuss about (so I don't forget).

Until the media as a whole - from commercials to the fashion industry - decides that sexiness is brains and self confidence and not large breasts and tight outfits, and more importantly can convince the average consumer to be attracted to the former and not the latter, which would require changing the human genetic makeup, we're going to have sexed-up ladies in video games. I think the only fair solution is to objectify dudes in the same manner.

Actually "brains" is more attracting than "breasts" to me. But that's real life. In a set of polygons there isn't brain, to start with.

Fanservice is a service to the fans...

And I'd be happy if you get your object males and enjoy them, in games or IRL. Damn, many guys would be happy to be a "object male"...
