I ran track in high school, so I've known about the mystery holes on sneakers for quite some time. Thumbsup I recently passed the knowledge on to some people at the pizza shop who kept getting blisters. It's one of those things that you think everyone knows, but it's really a secret to everyone.

I'll withhold judgement until I play it, since I love Heroes of the Storm and did not think I would even like it. BUT, the level of dialouge needs to be changed. The character doesn't need to say something every single time he does an attack. Good god that was annoying.

Well now, they certainly snuck a horrific/hilarious skin in there for Stitches.

Also, Billie is already in the game, so that "new mount" is a surprisingly halfass re-texture.

That's Wonder Bille, and he was free as a reward for purchasing something during closed beta. Billie is so people can purchase a cute mount without the added effects the special mount has. The really stupid one is the metallic reskin of the tiger.

I'd lvoe a decent skin of Azmodan. The lame Guldan skin is the only he has currently. Give him a robot SC2 one at least.

Steam has the Witcher series on sale right now, if - like me - you want to catch up.

Just bought both for $4.48. WHAT A DEAL! I'D BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!

Buy both for $5... Get (another) 10% off Witcher 3 for owning the previous two...

Yeah, except I got Witcher 3 for free (like many here) with my GTX 970 purchase.

Things like that are alway going to be an issue at competitive levels of play InBlack. Thrusting 5 people with different strategies and ideas on what is needed to win is always going to end up like this no matter what the game is... Especially in the range of 5 man teams. It's simply easier to both cover for mistakes and overlook them entirely when there are more players per team (i.e. TF2 12v12).

The idea that HOTS is any less of a "competitive" game than others is just smoke being blown by the LOL/DOTA2 crowd.

Pubbies and "solo-queuers" are and always will be the blight of any co-op or team-based gaming community. Staying out of the ranked modes unless you have a full team is most certainly advisable... expecting to have meaningful and competitive matches by drawing teams out of a hat is just mindblowingly naive.

I personally love it when people start telling me how to play my characters, especially when it becomes very apparent they have no experience playing the characters they are telling you how to play. "Don't use Azmodan to attack forts, you noob!" Uh...

Same, Agent. Being free, it was easy to convince my friends to try it out, and now we can usually make a 5-man team any evening of the week. It may be "DOTA for dummies", but i don't want a game where I could easily ruin everything because I wasn't jungling or something right when I should have.

Also, the game has charm to spare, like any Blizz game. The maps are all different themes, there's incidental animations everywhere (do an explosive effect near a shark on blackheart's bay!), and the characters will occasionally have short conversations if they "know" each other.

Yeah, I love those short quips between characters. And the background stuff is pretty amazingly detailed, especially considering I doubt many people sit there and look at it very hard.

I think it was a mistake to not allowing flying mounts in the new expansion. I would come back and play if I wasn't forced to take 10 minute gryphon rides all the time, or trek out of my way to reach a place I could easily fly to. They thought it would keep people in the game, but they thought wrong.

Regardless, 7.1 still makes them king of the hill. I don;t expect to see WoW going anywhere any time soon.

So what do you all recommend Blue pick up? 55" backlit LED LCD?

Pretty happy with my LG 55" LED LCD. IN 3DDDDDDDDDDD! LG has the non-active glasses, just like the theater. Gaming in 3D on a passive TV sucks, but I didn't really ever use the 3D games on my PS3 anyway.

4K or UHD actually looks really nice vs a 1080p display just due to the higher pixel density. You can tell, if you set one side by side. (or go to a store that has them set up like that.) I haven't gotten one yet because I don't NEED it, but I sure do want one.

Edited to say that LG seems to be making better LCD panels than Samsung now. Samsung had been the panel provider for Dell Ultrasharps for over a decade, but they are switching to LG panels now. (My new 34" monitor has an LG panel in it.)

You know, continuing Star Wars makes sense. That series was all about the universe Lucas created. And you can do that with new actors.

Indiana Jones was about, well, Indiana Jones. As played by Harrison Ford. It's done. Let dead dogs lie, don't resurrect them as zombies.

Eh, he just needs to go back to the Raiders title. I would love it if Chris Pratt was another son. Captain Crazy Pants could even make a cameo as the other son, but I don't think he can carry a movie at this point.

Do the Germans sensor Nazi imagery in their films and books too? (Serious question, I really don't know). You would think that a game where you are killing Nazis by the hundreds would get a pass...

It's not illegal, per se, but images, movies, books, games, any media that children can watch has to be censored or it can only be sold to adults. German politicians use this to harass companies into just sanitizing the media so they don't have to deal with any possible legal hassle.

And thus Germany proves that no matter who is in charge, they still fuck it up.

Maybe the anxiety aspect is why so many pro gamers take anti-anxiety and adhd "medications" like adderall to improve their game and maintain focus. Legal speed.

Except the anxiety aspect is not at all specific to pro-gaming. ANY professional role that has a competitive element is going to be prone to anxiety. Seems to me one of the most common aspects of pro-athletes regardless of specific sport is their ability to stay cool under pressure.

What baffled me most from that article was the fact that he's apparently getting paid between $60 and $100k a year yet still 'needs' to share an apartment with 5 others...

It's not just pro-gamers who take these meds - Bankers too, from OotB a few days ago.

I'm sure this isn't in any dictionary but I've heard it said that skill is talent under pressure. I play football/soccer competitively (sadly nowhere near professionally but it's not just a kick-about) and I can do flicks and tricks in training that I couldn't do in a match because I'm too taut, too fired up, too busy and not skilful enough - and I'm one of the best players in the league (you can trust me on that, I'm from the Internet).

Maybe the team lives together to practice together all these hours? They should be able to afford a decent apartment even if that is the case so I doubt they really need to live in a cramped place. Still, I wouldn't expect them to have long careers so they're probably saving as much as they can.

Yeah, I read an article about it in Wired a few years ago. Pro teams are often required by the team to live in the same house. They don't pay rent, it's all sponsor paid, but they basically game 12-16 hours a day together. Crazy. It's fun to do once in a while, but after a few months? Gaming might not be too fun anymore.

I didn't pre-order it and I haven't played New Order Yet...but damn, that looked fun. Damn this backlog of games...

I paid full price for New Order and have no regrets. It's a good story, with memorable characters and great gunplay. My GOTY for 2014, hands down. If you buy it on steam for $45, you get both for $45.

My only concern is the length of the DLC, as I think it's only like 7 chapters. We'll see how long that translates into hours of gameplay tomorrow, with reviews (I hope).

But I REALLY hope Machine Games (who did both the game and DLC) gets to make the followup. The ending (of New Order) is a bit of a cliffhanger (stick around for the very end of the credits), and I'd love to know what happens next.


Yeah, hoping for a sequel too. Really was a fantastic game. And I won't even botch about the engine. (Crossed my fingers behind my back, nya nya)

Just binge watched the last few episodes of Rebels. Not a bad show, but a little annoying how everyone supposedly lives despite being shot and blown up. (Stormtroopers, I mean.) A bit reminiscent of the A-Tea in that way. They go out of the way to mention no casualties, even though ships explode in a way that makes you pretty sure the pilot did not live.

Other than that, there some goofiness for the kids, but it's pretty watchable. I'd heard Clone Wars was the same, but I tend to shun anything that spawned from Ep 1-3.

Love, love, LOVE my Note 4. Of course the phablet (I FUCKING HATE, HATE, HATE THAT TERM!!!) is the future. I'll be diving into the Note 5, most likely. Perfect size, and plenty of power.

Yeah, had the Note 2, Note 3, and now the Note Edge. So much easier to see things with that extra screen space. But I'm right there with you on "Phablet." It's just a big phone, mmkay? No need for one of the stupidest buzzwords ever, alright?

I'm too pro to enjoy things, I simply tear them down and belittle people who enjoy them. I'm so pro I don't even have to play games, I turn them on and win automatically. I'm so pro that I only came here to tell you what a bunch of scrubs you are for actually playing games. Losers.
