    ESRB has rated the game: http://www.esrb.org/ratings/synopsis.jsp?Certificate=31977
    Not much news from the rating summary, however, it lists the game for Windows PC.

    iOS doesn't really have a Ratings system. Apple takes care of that part, not ESRB. :eng101:
     
  4. *plugs in non-Xbox 360 controller*

    Oh look at that, interface has changed to Xbox 360 buttons

    *goes to configure non-Xbox 360 controller*

    Oh look at that, showing a giant picture of an Xbox 360 controller.

    Granted, yes, you can use a Keyboard and everything will look normal, but no matter what controller you use, most games will automatically assume you're using an Xbox 360 controller and display the Microsoft Controller buttons in the menus such as the Green A, that weird Back button, etc, wouldn't mind an option to toggle that On or Off.

    PS: And yeah, I know if it bothered me that much, I could always just edit the texture files so it displays generic buttons instead, but it's only a minor niggle for me, certainly something I wouldn't praise Microsoft for.

    The mobile version was different before, right? It will probably be rated separately.

    As stated before, the App Store and Android Marktet don't use the ESRB, as they don't have to.

    Having controller support being a standard for PC gaming has been a fantastic move by the industry. I fucking hate using the keyboard for games and so do a lot of other people. The mouse is boss though.

    A lot of controllers allow 360 controller emulation. I know a lot of Logitech controllers do it and I use 360 controller emulation with my PS3 controller.

    Same here. It's really nice to use.

    All I really have to do is then match the buttons the right way according to how it is on the consoles (if the game is on consoles).

    They've really taken a step forward with the physics engine in that preview! :v:

    Pretty funny though, here's to hoping for some real gameplay soon though...

    Okay seriously not to derail the thread (maybe a mod could split off a Games for Windows thread?) but how do they not deserve some credit for bringing standards to PC gaming? I mean seriously, think back to the DOS days, every game had to ship with it's own set of drivers ffs. DirectX and now Games for Windows offer a unified platform for developers and gamers. If you don't have a 360 controller, that's cool, is it so hard to install x360ce? It even maps the buttons for you with the built in online database! It's a hell of a lot easier than trying to map a gamepad to keyboard and mouse commands.
     
  14. Of course, because No PC Games EVER supported controllers before Microsoft said so. Look, if you're happy with what Microsoft have done with PC Gaming, good for you, I'm not so much inclined to agree, the talk of DirectX is a totally different discussion compared to the Games for Windows Live and Xbox 360 Controller thing. But I do remember playing games on PC with a controller PRE-2005, when games would accept ANY USB controller without the need to emulate it as another controller as opposed to these days where "Controller Support" means Xbox 360 Interface on the game and if you have a different brand of controller, tough, you better go emulate the Xbox 360 controller!* But again, if you're fine with that, cool for you, this isn't really thread worthy, I just differ an opinion to you, Microsofts work with DirectX has been great, despite the complaints from a few devs, but their work on GFWL has been terrible and has done more damage to PC gaming than good, just my opinion though.

    *Of course there are games that work with any USB Controller right off the bat, such as Sonic Generations, but the game will still display Xbox 360 buttons and icons.

    Wow, it's like Episode 1 all over again.

    FINALLY, new badniks! I like the creature, very retro to me (and now very Pokemon). I hope they stay original with this game -- it's fine to take elements from the past games, but I'm personally wanting an actual new game, than a celebration of a past kind of game. Something to look forward to on Fridays until they finally decide to show us the damn game.

    Have they already started on the rehashes again? That thing looks like the wheels from Marble Garden. Ugh. The Badnik is cool though.

    I love the Badnik. It's actually really unique, and gives me a bit of hope for Episode 2.

    That wheel, though. Damn SEGA, you crazy.

    If the physics are anything similar to Episode 1, I'm already assuming that the wheel gimmick from MGZ can be stood on at ridiculous angles rather than standing straight on it.. Half-joking aside, I like the snail badnik, it looks pretty cool. Maybe we will get new content after all(!), although this hype-train stuff was silly the first time, why is it happening again :psyduck:
