PC titles

Is there actually any big PC only titles besides Diablo 3 coming out soon?

Hard to justify owning a poweful pc when I just dont see anything coming out

PC-Only means they're not coming out for consoles.

CS:GO will be on consoles, not sure of the others.

Certain games are worth revisiting once you DO have a powerful PC.

BF3, Starcraft 2, Crysis 2, Total War.
Also, if you invest in a powerful PC, you shouldn't just view it as "this year" , It will last you a few years assuming you get the right parts.

But to add to Magills list , and btw, FPS is obv infintely better on PC, so the "PC exclusive argument isn't valid"

Far Cry 3
Borderlands 2
Bioshock Infinite
Starcraft 2 : hear of the swarm
Aliens - Colonial Marines

Hard Reset is a pc only FPS. Supposed to be decent, but very good graphically.

why does it matter if games are pc only, even if they're on consoles too they'll be better on pc

weird question

with mods that game looks better then anything else on pc. It will chew and spit out pretty much any pc out there.


HL2 cinematic mod too? will have to try it out myself when i will get my new monitor delivered.

Each to their own, I couldn't get into it at all. Gave it 3 seperate attempts since release because of all the fanboys on here.

The PC list is endless though, the reason to own a good one. When you consider the 1000's of games released over the years. You rarely have to worry about "backwards compatibility" , and that's before you add in Emulators.

yeah I think I remember you saying similar in the stalker thread
the problem with stalker games (and of course there's always the possibility that it just isn't the kind of game for you, in which case le shrug) is that it really doesn't get going until 10-15 hours in.. so if you're not loving it from the very get-go it's possible (and probably likely) you wont bother sitting through another 10 hours of it to get to the point where people say it really shines.
