View Full Version : Why are you going the capcom way, why no Deus ex the fall for PC

This is really infuriating .We have always supported EIDOS because of its PC support for decades and this is what we get back in return .

This is like a slap in the face saying go buy an Ipad and android phone play it moron. The Fall is integral to the DE:HR story and not getting that is like not getting the missing link

Loads of episode of story rich Resident evil like (Resident evil 0,Resident evil code veronica, Resident evil 5 Lost in nightmares and desperate escape , Resident evil outbreak) didnt make it to PC. Those japanese in capcom and konami cant think beyond japan and we are sorry to say that you are starting to look like them

We cant help but feel that This is a really sad for PC gaming .

What is going to take for you to change your mind ? Do the fans need to sign petitions and pay and fund the project for you to port the Fall to PC ?

They cant "port" it exactly because everything has been designed to work on a tablet, not on a PC. From texture resolutions to HUD, FoV, file compression, etc. Additionally, its not a full game as you'd have on a PC - like, 30 hours long. Its more of a mini-game, designed to be a casual, quick thing and that kind of game doesnt really go well with the PC.

As far as i know, they have no plans of porting it and i highly doubt they ever will. So, give up. Also, welcome to the modern gaming industry.

^^and why cant they redesign the game for PC ? Resident evil revelation was made only for handhelds but later on it was ported it to pc

They're probably not interested. We'll be getting more PC games though, so dont worry - Deus Ex Universe has a few, and Deus Ex 4 was confirmed for PC too.

The Fall is a spin-off, one designed for tablets, touchscreens and a different context for play. Porting to mouse and keyboard, or even controllers (though the steam controller might work reasonably well) would result in it being unsatisfying to play compared to Human Revolution. I'm also not sure where you got the idea that The Fall is crucial to the Human Revolution story, but it doesn't have all that much to do with Adam Jensen's adventure. You would easily get more material relating to HR's story from the novel Icarus Effect than you do from The Fall.

Besides: Seriously? EM has already produced Human Revolution and DX4 is in the works. The AAA space is being served just fine on a standard timetable (2-4 years between games). You supported Eidos/Square Enix for ages, and there have been several game series (Deus Ex Thief, Just Cause, Sleeping Dogs, Hitman, Tomb Raider, etc) that have had perfectly decent, sometimes even really solid PC versions. All that from the Eidos label and you're getting worked up because the EM crew have branched out to other platforms with a single small side project? Get some perspective, and don't be ideological about the PC compared to other platforms. That has never helped anyone.

+1 You can live without it, its not integral to the DXHR story.

I enjoyed it, and if you can borrow a friend's iPad for the day it might be worth buying to play, but if not don't worry about it.

It's a different protagonist, telling a small side-story. Sure it has some nods to DXHR in it, but its not closely related :)
