    Sucks to be here in the southern hemisphere. Always a big rush of good releases at the start of summer, and a quiet patch right now when winter sets in :(

    quite honestly, months past there really was nothing. I mean February and April were boring as all hell. If it weren't for FEAR 2 at least occupying some of my time I don't know what I would have done.
    At this exact moment I have Wolverine on my screen making a nightly appearance, Riddick is installed waiting to be played, and I even decided to go through Tomb Raider Underworld after hearing good things.
    Once Res Evil 5 makes it way to PC and Diablo 3 gets released that should carry some gamers through summer and into the primetime third and fourth quarters. :)

    Well, you are a noob and super full of ****. :D

    But in all seriousness, most companies aren't moving from PC to console for a quick buck. It's a business, and the only way for a business to survive, is to make money. Only way to make money, is find the best selling department in the area of your market. In this case, it's consoles.
    For me though, there hasn't been any decent releases I've wanted on either console or PC. So, I just still play COD4.

    i agree with john and cybermancer, This time of the year more people go out more and movies is the big thing this time of year....hence why we see all the blockbusters now (yay T4 and Transformers 2)
    more people go out on dates, more likely to do more with significant others.
    barbeques, picnics, camping, vacation getaways,...etc

    now dont get me wrong, i'm a true geek and i'll be inside with the A/C on high playing older games...some classic emulation too...throughout the summer and i'll try to see if i cant fit my g/f into my tight schedule.

    but generally game sales are lower cause of all that so there wont be much for a while.

    lol, well snow is nice too :), as long as theres a balance overall throughout the year we cant complain, besides it rains too much here lol

    This time of year is crappy for games, moreso because of the E3 hype

    The only thing I worry about is the PC section in stores, the top ten being dominated by The Sims. I reap the benefits of the PC becoming the somewhat lesser audience because that means the put the prices down in order to sell the games. GRID for £10 new? Yes please :D

    WoW has pulled MANY people away from playing any other games.

    I know cause I played for 4+ years and missed out on alot of good games :(

    They should bundle new laptops and PC's WITH The Sims 2. Would sell like hot cakes. A lot of my lady friends have The Sims 2 on their laptops/PC's and they are fine playing on Low details. Its insane how popular the franchise is. One of them asked me if their laptop would be enough to play The Sims 3, and if not could I find them a new one that would.

    Every thing is alittle slow this time of year dude , i mean even console are not new release central at the moment.

    Also alot of game developers are holding on to there titles becuase of the way the economy is at the moment.

    Good thing to come from this slower time though, is that we get chance to save for all the titles to come later.:banana:

    I think we need to define 'pc gaming'.
    One way of looking at it...(My meaning of the word) = game developed for the PC....
    and if you look at it this way there are maybe 3-4 current pc titles on the entire planet? am i wrong? fact is pc gaming is DEAD. FACT. we are currently in the age of the console... FACT.
    But i like surfing the net easily, rendering things in CAD etc...
    just one mans rant...

    its just stupid game devs bringing down pc gaming its certainly not piracy thats killing it.
    maybe the pointless drm and copy protection that does't do **** tough.
