I don’t get why developers have such a grudge against PC gamers. Is it because of the holier-than-thou power tripping that happens in the Master Race or is it just too hard to develop for the Glorious Platform? It always feels like PC gamers are getting the wrong end of the stick with most multi-platform releases and some are so horrendous that the community needs to step up to fix the mistakes of the developers.
This fate has befallen the recently released BioShock: The Collection with the PC release having a ton of issues such as audio settings being wrong, mouse smoothing, FOV and so on. You’d think that a remaster for an 8-year-old game would warrant them paying close attention to the performance of the game on one of the principle platforms.
In any case, it was detailed on the game’s Steam page that the developers are well aware of these issues and will be releasing a patch soon to fix the following, among other things:
- General Mouse Fixes, including better Mouse Smoothing, Sensitivity and Acceleration Options in BioShock
- Additional Speaker Mode Options in Audio Settings in BioShock
- Improved FoV Slider Options in BioShock, BioShock 2 and Minerva’s Den
- Support for 21:9 display ratios in BioShock, BioShock 2 and Minerva’s Den
- General stability improvement to reduce instances of game crashes
It’s frustrating that this is still a problem in this modern age. PCs are supposed to be the optimal platform to play games on, not some afterthought where you can release a broken mess and expect no consequences for your actions.
