Stop fucking around with FOV

Ok, this fucking does it. This is the 3rd game this week where I had to fiddle with god damn FOV settings. And I’ve been fiddling with FOV since the day consoles became the new thing. You know, lazy ass shitty console ports to PC and all, but right now I found an extra gem. Bulletstorm. After half an hour of dicking around with the moronic Games for Windows Live client, I enter the game and instantly started to feel sick. Seeing how I’m using a 144Hz gaming monitor and with zero cases of gaming sickness in 20 years history, only reason for it can be FOV or Field Of Vision. The only thing that makes my head spin and hurt. With Bioshock Infinite it was so bad I had to play it in segments of 15 minutes with pauses until I finally decided to visited the interwebs and looked for FOV settings, because the ones in Video Settings did like nothing to FOV despite having it at the extreme right side. After adjusting it through INI settings, all was fine. At frigging 100+ degrees of viewing angle with pretty much no distortion…

Anyway, back to Bulletstorm. Same thing, instant weird feel, I go to internet, look for the FOV tweaks, found them, go to StormCamera.ini file and guess what, instead of the usual typical Unreal Engine INI file, I was greeted by a stack of Chinese letters. What. The. Fuck. After further research, some wombat from EA or People Can Fly or whoever had influence on development of this game thought it would be smart to encrypt fucking INI files. And of course not add a single setting for FOV adjustment in the actual game. Seriously!?

You fuckin’ lazy bastards. You are constantly, repeatedly and consistently pissing me off with your bullshit. How friggin’ hard is it to add a shitty ugly looking input box in which we, PC gamers can enter the desired FOV value in degrees and that’s it. It’s all we ask for. If you can chuck in a slider, awesome. But don’t release moronic stupid games without a single setting for FOV and for the love of all that is pixelated, DON’T encrypt the bloody config files as well. I mean how bloody daft do you have to be do make such a moronic design decision? What the hell were you people thinking!? God damn it…

Btw, if anyone has any practical method to tweak FOV for Bulletstorm game (Origin version), please let me know. Until then, the game will be left on cold and I’ll be playing NFS The Run again most likely (or something)…
