what's pewdiepie? I'd google it...but...ehh.


some russian guy that makes cheap gaming pcs.


Looked him up, he's Swedish. But hey, he's not from 'Merica so just label him 'foreign'. So, he exploded over night basically. Only started his channel in 09' and starting getting steam last year, And is now basically the number 1 youtube channel? wtf?


yup. and he plays a lot of pc only games. which in turn gets a significant amount of people interested in pc gaming. similar to what yogscast did for minecraft on pc.

PC doesn't have exclusives. It only has games that aren't profitable enough for consoles.


and therefore they are.... not available on any other consoles... and therefore exclusives?



No, "exclusive" is slang for games meant to bring more popularity to a certain system i.e. Halo fo Xbox. Any PC only game is the opposite. It's only on PC because nobody wants to play it.


wat... Civ5? Slender? Starcraft? HoN? LoL? WoW? btw definition: "an item or story published or broadcast by only one source."

cant tell if troll...


You named an inferior sequel and four terrible games. That's the best list you could think of?

Goodjobatpointbro


And that's the typical PC gamer response when asked to name exclusives. 90% strategy games (come on, there's a reason why they're on PC only) and how many non-strategy games that isn't indie?

Even for any indie game that is successful enough, the devs wouldn't think twice about porting their game to consoles. Terraria, Minecraft, Plants Vs Zombies, Day Z, i can go on...

So does TotalBiscuit, especially for his WTF series(I dont think I've ever seen him do one for a console period). I dont see you praising him.
