Maybe News to You! Dice and Response to PC Gaming

This is actually not surprising. It only makes sense for Dice to respond in such a manner after the continuing problems from IW and Activision regarding the PC and PS3 platforms. It's nice that they actually talk about (though briefly) how development on PC usually tracks.

So much journalism has moved to opinionated from factual, it seems that we as Americans have accepted that we'd rather have someone preach to us than to educate us. ...but that may be a topic for another time.

After all Dice owes almost everything to the PC market. A mod-able game in 1942 to help create "Desert Combat" and the community that actually took their work seriously, actively searched for out, downloaded it, and played the crap out of it. (<--- can anyone tell me if this is a run on?) Of course that led to the development of the entire BF line. Console gamers have greatly appreciated BF:BC.

So I guess this was a response in sorts that we have deserved and expected from Dice.

Thank you.

About Lockeone of us since 11:35 PM on 10.20.2009

I am a PC gamer. I have a water cool completely custom case that I hand crafted from raw materials and PC DIY parts. The case is one of the smallest 3 120mm radiator cases that exists. I have a modest computer inside. The non-water cooling parts cost about $650 dollars and I upgrade the system about every 3 years and the video card about every 2 years.

I have been gaming all my life. I started with simple LCD portable games and we eventually got an Atari which I played the dickens out of. NES was too played until my fingers had blisters. I bought a PC in 1988 and have not looked back since (well except to play karaoke with my ex-wife). Games like Civilization, Battle of Britain, Ultima IV, Leisure Suit Larry, and Wing Commander took my heart.

Sytems I have owned:
Atari 2600
Atari 7200
Nintendo NES
X-Box
PC
Wii

I am also an avid technical scuba diver and have logged dives at 170' deep. I play paintball, softball, football, and all sorts of table tops games that include DnD and Axis and Allies. I am also in the process of writing my own table top RPG and have spent three years working on it. I have a woodworking shop and can make furniture, picture frames and the like.

I have a degree in Industrial Design. This makes me a designer of products, architectural way finding, POP displays, and user interfaces. I have also taught design at the college level.
