:( Another nail in the PC coffin ... it is a sad state of affairs that we are potentially depending upon Microsoft with its (so far uninspiring) "Games for Windows" initiative to stop the decline.

I'm kind of surprised... but mainly because I didn't know it was coming to PC anyway (I thought it was a 360 game)! :?

Don't despair! :) There's still a lot of good PC games coming out this year.

Oh, FFS do me a favour... Bloody plebs.

And if they're going to do that, they can keep the f**ker; last few games I believe they did were the stale Unreal franchise, and the turgid Pariah. Won't be missing this one.

I'm not really that bothered about this - the first trailer looked amazing.

The last trailer looked like they were just copying Metal Gear and bore no relation to the previous trailer at all.

Digital Extremes has been throwing out hyped rubbish for years.

Its been a slow year for PC games last year, but there's plenty to get excited about this year, with HL2 Episodes 2 and 3, Crysis to name but 3.
