  1. I started playing a bit of this for the skins... and 10 loot boxes in week 4. Plus if you log in between yesterday and May 22, you get 20 free heroes grouped into 4 bundles. Its a FTP hybrid MOBA/RTS game. I picked the Support/Specialist bundle because it had Lucio and Zarya... but man I blow at this game. I haven't played and RTS game since WarCraft III. I'm glad I only have to play 5 games a week instead of 5 wins.
  2. As long as bullshit weapon supply drops stay in these games, they'll all be hot garbage. They still have a season pass, so I have no doubt they'll have a supply drop system. COD doesn't do anything that will make them less money besides making progressively shittier games year after year.
  3. The Vehicle system needs to be a queue. This would prevent spawn screen camping, and it would be fair to everyone. You pick the vehicle you want and then go play on the battlefield. When your turn is up, you get a prompt that gives you 15 second to confirm before it moves to the next person in line. Instead of the same 2 people getting the vehicles over and over, it would be more like the same 5-10 that are interested in using them. Nothing pissed me off more than some asshat picking the light tank when there was a fucking behemoth in the sky. Everyone was so quick to get the tank just to have it and farm kills, they weren't picking the correct variant for the situation. This is why defense got steam rolled most the time after the defense nerfs. (Too many matches with Strider, where we got crushed on Iron Walls because the Behemoth stayed up and offered a constant waypoint for the attackers to parachute into the last point) Its bad enough dealing with piss poor team mates in a 6v6 game, but when something as simple as tank selection and make or break Operations, it becomes irritating that such a small part of the game can make or break the team. Hero and vehicle wasting was prevalent in the first battlefront, this new system does nothing to change it. The main reason Overwatch is my favorite MP game right now is because it has a high skill ceiling, and there is no coddling of n00bs. Either git gud, or go play something else. A year later the MP is still going on strong, match making is still under 1 min, while 3-4 months after Battlefront came out, I watched a friend's roommate wait over 5 min to find a match. The whole "we want to make it accessible for casual and hardcore players alike" Sorry, thats shit. The hardcore players are the ones that stick around if your content is good, the casuals are just that casual. They play and then don't stick around long because they're CASUAL. Developers are too chicken shit to make players have to learn to master the game, everything is watered down and made easy... then when skilled players find that one thing that gives them a skill based advantage, it gets nerfed.
  4. It could have ended with the Thriller dance and been better IMO.
  5. So far this season has been pretty great. There doesn't seem to be any loose plot holes, and they've done well tying what little of last season there was into this one. Bajie is turning out to be an excellent character. I didn't think I'd like him after the mine escape, which honestly he did have a pretty shaky development from a greedy opportunist to someone with a moral code. The gift is intriguing, and the fact that you can be sterilized of it or lose it like Bajie and seemingly MK makes me wonder how one inherits it in the first place. Its clear that Azra is probably not a real place. Especially after MK found the WIRED magaizne featuring Bioshock. It makes me wonder what actually happened to the past world. After learning that Quinn is still alive, Sunny must know that Veil is the one that healed him. With the Widow teaming up with Quinn, Sunny won't have any allies trying to get her back. In fact he'll want to kill them both. I also find it interesting how Tilda told the story of the Widow's husband, and how he would rape her nightly until the Widow killed him, and then shortly after the Widow hands over Veil as barter for a pretty dangerous alliance. Although she did have a point about the poison and insinuating that Tilda should have told her the wrong bottle when she patched her up in season 1. Still, its not like the Widow to not help another woman in that situation. With Sunny incapacitated, and at the mercy of the Master, next week's episode should be interesting. I hope we learn more about the gift. Her abbots are dead, along with a prized student. I doubt she'll be happy. But with the revelation about Bajie's past, it should make for an interesting encounter.
  6. I'm starting to get really good with Genji. I got gold in eliminations several times tonight, and carried at 51% kill participation in one of my matches. And with a buff to his ult in the pipeline, I won't have to worry about my fun getting nerfed for a while. XD There are few things that feel amazing in this game. Hooking airborne Phara with Roadhog, Hooking Tracer with Roadhog, Killing a good Zarya period, and deflecting an ult back at the enemy team with Genji... because I totally got McCree good. XD

  7. Vehicle/Hero pick ups gone. Vehicles go to BF1 format.
  8. That feeling soloing the boss with corpses cheering you on, because everyone else fell to their death on Thaumanova Reactor, and the boss has 30% HP left. XD I did it for the first time since the change. The heat room isn't that bad when done as a group. But having to do 4 rooms now makes it my least favorite even more so. I also had to do the Not So Secret JP again for Astralaria. WTF? Not So Secret and SW? The two worst JP in the game for this journey. -_-;

      XD Just wait until tier 4, you'll probably have to do those JP and fractal all over again. XD

      What benefit is there for having the entire group do the heat room? I still haven't made it across once. I never tried it with a cooling rod tho.

      You can stagger the cooling rod shields off CD. With 4 people having a rod, If you do it right, you should make it to the end no problem. Actual only 2 are needed because the cd finishes by the time 1 shield completes. I had a pretty good group. The boss for thauma was their only screw up. We cleared uncatagorized with ease, and we cleared Choas bonfires on the first try after me and the party leader explained it to the other 3 that didn't know what to do... Oh and we melted subject 6 in seconds. What is funny about the thauma boss is you actually have a special action key now that stops 1 platform from dissappearing. It has a heafty CD, but you should be able to use it once per each time someone gets targeted.

      That makes so much more sense now.

  9. Sooo, are we erasing the shit ending and AO altogether? Please say yes. Eureka and Renton look older, and yay to no CGI mechas. UPDATE Answer: Yes we're erasing the shit ending.
  10. ROTFLMAO!!! OMG I'm gonna get the DLC just for this. Why don't more games have these types of joke boss fights?
  11. I thought I am Legend was shit. I personally enjoyed his performances in Independence Day and Enemy of the State.
  12. The Martini-Henry nerfed pissed me off so bad I pretty much quit BF1. The Model 10 is still a beast, yet a gun that requires aiming with no scope, and required an insane grind to get got nerfed. Despite the view on it, I had a lot of fun. It wasn't easy to use, and pulling off those shots were fucking rewarding. Its one thing to nerf something that's easily accessible, but something just completely turns me off a game that takes a shit on something I worked hard for. This is exactly how I felt when they nerfed the FAL in black ops 2, after I fought through all the SMG whores to max it out. I agree with Strider. A lot of Dev's that I use to find trustworthy have been letting me down lately. Despite Seige, Ubi has lost my trust altogether. The Division was terribly underdeveloped, and For Honor is a DLC pyramid scheme. DICE has gone COD with pumping out too much content than it can handle. I'll just hope that Andromeda was a misstep from BioWare for right now. Red Dead Redemption 2 being a bust will really break my spirits about gaming, but I don't see Rockstar fucking it up. Its an upside down world where Square Enix and Nintendo have provided me the best gaming experiences so far this year.
  13. Full reveal.
  14. I feel sorry for anyone that wanted to buy a NES classic at retail price. The last of them will be shipped out til the end of the month. Never wanted one myself, but a lot of friends did. This is why emulators will always be a thing.

      My younger brother bought one at retail price just 2 days ago. lol. Lucky for him since he's wanted it for months now. I bet these will jump up in price on ebay soon. Nintendo's shitty supply and demand issues really make me want to avoid their products. I feel like if I'm really interested in something from their company they'll somehow screw it up so more scalpers can profit. If they announce a SNES classic next, everyone will assume it'll be the same shitty supply and buy the absolute hell out of them to resell.

      They've tripled in price on ebay. I wish I could stumble into. 3 of them and make a quick $1000.
