REVIEWS Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Anti-Games For Windows Live Dark Souls PC Petition

Posted on Thursday, April 12 @ 10:23:50 PST by Keri_Honea


First there was a petition to bring Dark Souls to the PC, and when that petition won, the petitioners petition again because they don't like the medium used for the PC game. 

Namco Bandai announced last night that there will be a PC version for Dark Souls that will support Games for Windows Live (GFWL). Within hours, if not minutes, an online petition surfaced demanding that the publisher change the format to Steam or add a Steam format. As of writing this, there are over 12,000 signatures.

From their petition:

GFWL is unpopular, difficult to use, inconvenient, has terrible online support (a key feature in Dark Souls), and is downright unpleasant. After anxiously awaiting a PC release for this fantastic game it feels like a real slap in the face hearing Dark Souls will use Games for Windows Live. We recommend Valve's Steamworks in place, as this DRM is much easier to use, less intrusive, more reliable, and more accepted among PC gamers. Please reconsider the use of GFWL, or offer the game on both services. Thank you for taking the effort to port this game, but for a lot of customers it's Steam or no sale.

There is just no pleasing people. It's almost to the point that maybe developers and publishers shouldn't even honor online petitions at all, as it seems that they won't satisfy anyone. They listened to that petition, so surely they'll listen to mine that petitions something different than their decided resolution!

I have such tired head about all of it. Wake me when gamers start enjoying gaming again.
