My proof is in the pudding.
Heroes Of Newerth has non-adjustable FOV, and is what I like to think a superb game.
Sure in the beginning I was like wtf, why can't I zoom out..But I got used to it. And never having played many RTS games before it, such as DOTA which it is mostly based off of, I have to say that I loved that game.
I just don't think the review should be jumping down their throat here. Sorry, but game developers kinda have final say in how they want their product to be. In this instance, they wanted to only have one FOV for everyone regardless of system, simply don't buy it then if you don't want to.
I'm sure this review will not deter those away from it who want to purchase it, and will likely as others have said stir up more buzz and publicity to make others want to buy it just to see what the fuss is about.
I agree. Through the years you might notice Kyle being very emotional about things and posting before thinking. Having your own website doesn't make someone a rational or logical person. If anything it just gives him a way to vent extremist emotional feelings. Of course I could not say this on Hardforum without being banned. So I suggest anyone else agreeing with me to not post things of similar sentiment, or he will ban you and delete your post.....
If the game is competitive online, and relies on FOV it is their very right to make sure that it is fair for all players. If that means dropping multidisplay support that is their choice. People that are obsessed with eyefinity need to pick out the games with that support. I would like Physx and Havok support for all games but I don't whine and bitch to the world if a game doesn't decide to.
