"But the “greatest failure” at OPM? That would be the lack of a “comprehensive governing policy” for cybersecurity at the agency that would have proactively controlled system access and mandated regular patches and upgrades."

Oh you mean like RMF or DIACAP? It exists, it's made especially for government IT systems and I do it for a living.

So what really happened is that they ignored the directives and instructions. Dummies.

Just give me a new Quake-type game, vehicles, big bases, and some twitchy (but not too fast, im old now) fun.

Holy hell.. i watched the video for a bit before looking at the comments. Now that I see the comments, I see that someone else pointed out the shitty frame rate on the title.. my god, that's fucking embarrassing.

I know they sell, so does Selena Gomez, Adam Sandler movies and this years Red Sox. Sold copies doesn't mean the quality is worth a turkey.. plenty of morons buy stupid shit every damn day.

"GameStop Will Pay You $200 Cash for Your PS4 Right Now."

How much could i get for mine selling it on my own though? It just sits there collecting dust. I haven't touched it since the men's World Cup was being played.

So i went to go look at a video for this game..
Found this:
https://www.callofduty.com/blackops3/mp

WTF is that utter bullshit? Some sort of double wall jump nonsense? Jetpacks? Wall running? Super sliding? Is this Brink meets Quake meets a poor mans Tribes? This looks like absolute 100% pure horse piss.

It's like the devs said "screw it, give those console idiots every mechanic in every game, we no longer want to stand out or apart. Those dummies will go for it"

Regular bullets, but F it.. we can now run on walls because we perfected that tech before using better ammo!

From what i read.. the amount of micromanagement in this game is atrocious.
I think one of you here actually said it? Like SupCom scale, but ordering units on a piece by piece basis? Plus the units were "stupid"..

anyone got any inputs on this?

As someone in the cybersecurity field, the other item of note (aside from the drug issue/dont work to work for "the man" issue)..is that the DoD/Feds pay about 70% salary compared to civilian sector.

For example:
I make 97k a year right now doing Information Assurance for the DoD (Air Force contractor).. if I switch to the civilian sector, I have a job at 140k right now lined up. Now lower that to 70k for new people (or about there).. versus 100k for the same new person, just in the civilian world.

Why not take the higher paying job? I like the environment and the people.. being prior Air Force myself.

Care to elaborate on your "meh" experience thus far?

And how did you get into the beta?

You know the game stinks on ice whenever:

1. It's Blizzard's new IP, I mean come on.. BLIZZARD!
2. It's a new genre for them (FPS)
3. It has supposedly borrowed from the Titan game

and yet... nobody seems to care one damn bit about the game.

Good lord that looked boring and slow. Like they captured the unfun parts of a MOBA and made them first person.

Welp.. they captured that 1990's vibe for sure.. not for me, but they nailed the overall look.

I play on the regular (level 6 or 7 I guess), and I rather enjoy the game. It takes a good team to enjoy the game, and I found that with 8vs8 it's a MUCH better game than 7v7 or god forbid 6v6.

When youre playing with pubs, it's important to have a large player pool per team just so you're likely better off - with hoping for a few good players amongst the morons.

The game can be VERY frustrating though, so you need to take your time and not run and gun rambo style. I only like one Merc so far (Fragger)..and whenever he's no longer free to play (on rotation), that's when I'll reevaluate this title to see if it's worth a few bucks from me.

So far, I do like it.

Some of us Quake 1 players are still around
I get invited to a Thunderwalker CTF match every so often.. I probably should play!

Back on topic:
I haven't yet seen one thing about this title that makes me want it.. and i WANT to want it

I am having good fun with Dirty Bomb at the moment. So it's not like I require a complicated game to play either.

Despite the pedigree, and the smooth gameplay look.. this title somehow looks absolutely boring. Does he have a static gun and a fist pound.. and that's it? Those look incredibly boring and without much feedback to the gamer.

I haven't seen one trailer that makes me want to buy this game, in fact.. they've done the opposite

Based on some posts here, I decided to download HOTS... never played a MOBA before, so this will be new for me.

In order for me to play any new MMO, it has to meet the following criteria:

1. Be as accessible as WoW, with as much end game content as WoW
2. Fun, non-grindy leveling experience in easy-to-join group formatting like Guild Wars 2.
3. Have the ease of use/a lack of "why can't I do that?" which I found in Rift
4. Public events often enough.. like in Rift/Guild Wars 2
5. The goofy, fun, but engaging voices and feel of Wildstar
6. A way to feel like I accomplished something even if i only played for 30 minutes

I think that may be too much to ask for :/
