PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

February 10, 2009 -

The PC Gaming Alliance, which welcomed publisher Capcom to its ranks last week, has unveiled a new website.

The updated PCGA home page is definitely an improvement over the original. Randy Stude, PCGA president, commented on the transition: 

Visitors... will see that the PCGA is the place that PC Gaming companies of all types can come together to collaborate to help solve problems that plague our industry. Our membership remains steadfast in the belief that this is vital to ensuring the continued growth and health of PC Gaming globally.

GP: Now if they'd just update their blog once in a while...

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

Anything that can improve the status of PC gaming I'm fully in support of. PC gaming has been sucking lately thanks to the big companies pulling back on resources. I feel jipped. My paid big money for my rig, and honestly its way different than my xbox 360. I guess the piracy bug has really been the driving force behind pc gaming and suckage. Thats too bad. I hope the free pc game model works with Ea's battlefield heroes. Either that or Starcraft will bring PC gaming back to the forefront.

The new design is nice. Now about the DRM assfuckery and key locking...

I see that the PCGA still has their priorities straight. Things they do nothing about:

- Over the top DRMs

- Over the top prices

- Bad ports

- Forced console exclusives

- Bad control of sales (not taking most online sales into account)

Of course, half of their members are PC's worst offenders: Microsoft (monopoly, buying exclusives for xbox, forcing delays in PC release dates, abysmal OS support, PC market rupture with DX9 & DX10...), Intel (integrated graphics chips), Epic (hates PC, why are they even in the PCGA?), ATI  & nVidia (price fixing), etc.

And what do they do?

- A new website

- (every two months, from any member at random) EVERYTHING IS BECAUSE OF PIRACY!!!! PIRACY IS BAD!!!! PIRACY IS KILLING PC!!!!

With these friends, who wants enemies?.

<looks at website, most notably member companies>

I thought the CEO of EPIC said they weren't developing for PC after their UT3 debacle that they blamed on piracy. Doesn't sound like someone I want promoting PC gaming.

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

How about tell devs not to lock keys and ensure all PC games are full customizable control wise..... the port and dumb mentality of modern gaming is making the console version more configurable than the PC version...

ZippyDSMleeEvil within is a badly designed game.11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenSure but you said "widens," hence my confusion. Looking into it, yep, there's a tweak to completely re-frame the image, adding more info at the top and bottom. You apparently need a fairly beefy rig to keep it running smooth when you do that though.11/27/2014 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilsonthere is vertical fov, not just horizontal fov11/27/2014 - 6:38pm
Andrew EisenWell, you can widen it to 3:1 or even 10:1 but I don't know why you'd want to. From what I understand it's the missing visual info at the top and bottom that some object to, not that there isn't enough on either side.11/27/2014 - 6:36pm
Matthew WilsonI think it widenss the fov, so you get to see more.11/27/2014 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenI don't see how as doing so would not add any visual information to the top or bottom of the screen.11/27/2014 - 6:04pm
Matthew Wilsonfrom what I read, getting rid of the black bars and stretching it out made for a better play experience.11/27/2014 - 5:59pm
Andrew EisenFrom what I hear, there's a ton of "look up and shoot at the guys above you" stuff in the game that the wider frame doesn't accommodate such actions well.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Andrew EisenHaving a game run in scope is not necessarily a bad thing but like any aspect ratio, you have to compose your shots correctly.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Neo_DrKefkaThe Evil Within was pretty bad and to make it worse the way the screen size made it hard for you to see even on a big screen it really hurt the game. Being Artistic is great but when you focus on art rather than what sells you run the risk of that happen11/27/2014 - 5:33pm
Matthew WilsonI kinda hope this is not true. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/11/nintendo_might_not_be_making_more_gamecube_controller_adapters_at_the_moment11/27/2014 - 1:34pm
Matthew WilsonI saw that. I wish people would stop preording, but sadly that will never happen.11/27/2014 - 1:26pm

MaskedPixelanteThe Evil Within is only a month old, right? And it's already 66% off...11/27/2014 - 10:29am
MechaCrashI held off on Civ:BE because I am pretty sure it'll get a bigger discount during the Christmas sale.11/26/2014 - 11:09pm
MechaTama31I'm sorely tempted by Civ: BE, but I have to stay strong and remember what it felt like to be repeatedly kicked in the junk by Civ V...11/26/2014 - 10:58pm
MechaCrashNah, just providing more proof that GGers are lying when they claim it's really about ethics in game journalism and not a proxy war against feminism.11/26/2014 - 9:58pm
