Why the low UT3 adoption?

    This is typical of PC gamers, whom are feeling more and more insecure about their platform. You never see console gamers comparing their systems to PCs. It's irrelevant.

    Instead of making blatantly misinformed statements about console users, just stick to what you know please!

    Why would a console owner care about the PC? Their market is thriving and they really have no reason to compare their favorite console to any other platform period. That doesn't stop them from doing it, though.

    LOL If you say that console gamers don't compare consoles to Pcs then you must be posting from the moon. :lol:

    I have seen unlimited arguments (in certain places, this is PC haven here)about this most of the time ppl saying how consoles are so much better for gaming. I own almost every console you can think of (well the wii won't be opened til friday) but I would way rather play this and most other games on my PC. In fact this franchise was almost ruined when they decided to make it into a multi-platform. I have played this game since the very first just plain ole Unreal came out and love the game, but when I installed this one I was almost done ( I actually went back to playing 2004) until there were some patches released.

    Sounds like I'll be ok then :lol: I've got an ATI Radeon HD2600 which has had quite a few driver updates now I think.

    I think you can get it for only £5 now, the original release (the £5 is a PC gamer re-release) for only a couple of quid more, which is great! This i why I usually don't bother getting games when they come out, they rarely maintain their full retail price, the only two I've encountered that do are Modern Warfare and Shadow of the Colossus.

    Moddable PC games are superior to non-moddable console games. End of story.

    As arguable as that statement is, excluding the 360 version, what does this have to do with the "low UT3 adoption"?

    Derived from this statement, if UT3 fails on PC, then UT3 will fail on consoles for sure. People on forums usually lack any quality in means of relevance, they just speak their mind and it's referred to as creativity.

    If UT3 was released today everyone would be playing it for years to come. Now it's just water under the bridge, a game that never raised above it's own expectations on a large enough scale.

    This is merely another bashing thread asking everyone "What's wrong with UT3?" when a more constructive approach can be found elsewhere. Yes, the "What would revive the UT franchise?" thread, but then again, what would really make a difference? Thinking, writing, reading and then some more thinking? Instead of doing that 164 times we could have played 164 matches each, or at least 3'552 total already. Playing the game would revive it.

    It's like touching yourself, every time, you discover that you still have your sex drive intact, even thou most of us live in constant denial after the fact.

    Play the game! It's good for you!

    Use UTComp, find a nearby server, gather the gang and make it a habit.

    ha . what

    Fixed.

    Anyway I think I'm going to play UDK. It's a much better tool than UT3.

    You all know that your fathers are motherphuqers, right? Nothing wrong with that, because that's the sole reason for your existence.

    I never expect people to agree with me when I am ironic, only when I am right.

    If we all started playing tonight everyone would be playing and keep on playing instead of going to the nearest forum to bitch about nothing mostly because there are more players here than in the game.

    Epic misplaced their trust in mindless whining nitwits, also known as the PC gaming community.

    Wow just wow

    I'm surprised you haven't been banned from these forums saying stuff like that. This place must not be moderated

    Nutjob. Why don't you go find some console forums to troll.

    The whining probably just seems like a big factor because people like to complain. It's a bit like the news, most of the stories are negative because that's what people are interested in looking into. Even the most popular games attract more whines than praise.

    What's a bit of a shame is that we don't see more analysis of technique and game play for the maps, but that would be more work than fun.

    I installed it for about 2 hours, unpatched.
    I was like WTF did any one test this game before they put it in a box.


    I just reinstalled it on my new laptop, patched it, then added the bonus content.
    Epic must hate people that play Off Line. I have to re-edit all the server settings if i close the game.

    PS. Best OS is 98SE or XP.

    I'm not your average ordinary forum troll. I am a PC gamer, nothing else.

    Bull. Epic ****ed up with this game, bigtime, and didn't bother to correct their mistakes.

    Don't bypass the censor. That kind of language isn't necessary to make your point.

    Epic failed to put their trust in PC gamers, so I don't know how they misplaced their trust with that group. Using Gamespy as the multiplayer backend was basically stabbing the community in the eyeball while sawing off their reproductive organs with a rusty lumberjack saw.

    Actually its all over the net, pretty much constantly. (where you been?) lol

    You've got it all backwards stinky, its the consolers that always do this, we were having a mature hardware discussion and some others made some comparisons to price, power, and other uses, don't let my opinion, experience, & habits upset you, its just my point of view, i respect your opinion even if its the complete opposite of mine.

    Blanket statement: Never take reality personal. ;) - or even someone elses for that matter.

    On a little sidenote;this place is a frick'n riot.. plenty of good humor here even with the all the spamming and differences of opinions.
