A Riposte To Valve’s Defense Of PC Gaming

For when Deus Ex runs at double-speed on your dual-core processor, Assassin’s Creed adds compulsory black bars to your 4:3 monitor, Crysis locks off options you know your graphics card can handle, or your newly installed Mass Effect refuses to run because your broadband is down, bookmark this image. Come back here, watch it a few more times, and feel the flappy-limbed catharsis. I know I will.


I feel like this all the time.

Via this awesome thread Tim found in his Google Blogs RSS feed for the term ‘PC Gamer’. What say you to that, O champions of the medium?

    If you enjoyed that, be sure to check out the sequel, also on YouTube, and the fan fiction page of the original author, Squirrel King http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1047027/squirrelking

    “Then out of no where BOOM happend and the back of the espcape ship fell open n one of the army guys fell out and explodd in space then another one closed it and said “NOOOOO HE WAS MY BROTHER!” and then got tired and slept.”

    We all have those kinds of days.

  2. Not at all. I know it well, and recall much limb-flapping, but not this particular scene, I must admit.

    PS. ‘be being’ is redundant.
