Every year, when a new tech product is announced, the world divides into two kinds of people: people who line up to buy the New Shiny Thing, and people who rant about how New Shiny Thing sucks. Both of those groups of people are chumps. Loyalty to a brand—whether it’s love or hatred—is a poison that makes you stupid.
Earlier this week, Techland announced that its new zombie-killing adventure Dying Light will have "50+ hours of gameplay." Some might considering this good news. I don't—at least at face value.
With the release of every new console, I always have to ask myself: is this the year I return to PC gaming and stop buying consoles? The answer, every time, is a resounding no. Here's why.
The new consoles may be making headlines right now, but I won’t be buying one. I haven’t bought one since the original Xbox. Why? I already have a gaming machine with better graphics, a better controller, and more flexibility...and it didn’t cost much, either. I’m talking, of course, about a PC.
