Oh, I thought you were talking about TFU1. As for TFU2, LA doesn't seem quite finished with it yet, maybe they'll enable the DLCs or release a special edition of this one for the PC as well. We'll see.

Yeah, I would expect the same thing, BUT it wasn't ported by LA. It was ported by Asypr.
That's why I said publisher, not developer.

LA handed over the materials for them to port it, and after what Aspyr did with TFU1, most would be wary of what they would possibly do with TFU2. I mean, yeah we should expect it to be quality and have no problems, that's how it should be, but not in some cases. It's like you let someone borrow your car, then they crash it. Same person wants to borrow your car again, you're gonna be hesitant to let him borrow your car right? That's what Aspyr did with TFU1, they took it and basically crashed it, then it was their job to do TFU2, most people would be like "oh god they better not mess this one up like last time, I might have to hold off on buying it until I hear about the bugs in it." Most people aren't gonna be like, "Oh boy, they really messed up last time but I believe that they are going to do a fantastic job and not mess up at all."
Two points about this: Firstly, I actually didn't find the port of TFU1 all that terrble, since I only got to play it on a completely new computer powerful enough that the non-existent optimization and bloated install size weren't an issue. Yes, it crashes once in a while, but so what? So do Oblivion, Fallout, Crysis, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, and a whole bunch of other excellent and/or critically acclaimed games. PC games crash, that's just how it is.
Secondly, IIRC we were assured by LA that the first game's fiasco would not be repeated. Since they're the publisher and therefore ultimately responsible for the finished product, I kinda believed them. Maybe that was naive of me.

You know what, it was my mistake here, and I apologize. I was pretty tired by the time I got to that part and got you confused with I believe was deesnyder who said that. I'm like Marty McFly when you call him a chicken when someone says, "I dare you" to me, so I was searching and then found that it wasn't you who said it.
Yeah, I'm pretty anal about wording stuff right, especially when it comes to claiming something as fact that I damn well know to be a matter of opinion. That's just asking to be ripped a new one. No hard feelings, eh?
