  1. Sometimes, when a game publisher releases PC ports of its console titles there are certain features PC gamers have come to expect that don't always make the cut. Sometimes the game's resolution is locked and there are a minimal set...

    Another reason PC beats console hands-down when it comes to gaming.

    "As for why these games release this way, Thoman thinks that it's likely because of the publishers underestimating interest in the titles due to poor PC sales in Japan."

    If sales are poor, why continue to copy and paste? I don't get it. Durante takes a couple days to fix the resolution, and 70 hours to add better AA, DOF and AO himself, tells me those Japanese devs are just lazy, or Japanese gamers have low standards. Durante is the man!

    Because "ctrl+C,ctrl+V" makes them a lot of money. If you do the money earned per minute spent working, it's a hefty margin lol.

    That's impressive, we need more guys like him. I feel like the reason they do that is because they want more people buying console copies of their game as it is a lot harder to pirate and making resolution the same as the console will make some noobs think their console is just as good as a gaming pc.

    As I mentioned in another occasion, I spend around 12 hours of my day around Japanese people. And I can tell you: the average Japanese has very poor understanding of computer technology, it's just not in their culture. Mainly, because they spend most of their time on their cell phones or mobile game devices, having little use for computers. Just so you can understand it, I become their personal hero as soon as I mention you can change youtube's video resolution.

    Now, regarding the "I do this for fun...The more you do it as work, the less it will seem like fun..." I have the same approach regarding my job. I'm an English and Japanese teacher, but whenever I have the opportunity, I do it for free. And it's very pleasant. Specially in the case of Japanese, since I've studied for free in a public University and I feel it's my duty to return something to society.

    And last, Durante had an important part in my life. Dark Souls is my favorite game ever.

    AKA low standards, because there is nothing stopping Japanese gamers from seeing what the possibilities are in places other than Japan, which is still confusing considering Sony Playstation is from there.
