"Diablo 3 is killing it right now. Diablo 3 is a really fun game"

How awesome would it be if the highest level AI didn't blatantly cheat in pretty much every way... to make up for it's studidity in actual gameplay/tactics.

How awesome would it be if the AI didn't cast disjunct everytime and have a 95% change of success instead of the 5% it's meant to have.

Other than that, really great game!

I absolutely loved Supreme Commander. While it had issues in version 1.00 they did a great job fixing most of them in subsequent updates. SupCom FA turned out great and polished. SupCom 2 was consolified garbage though.

So would you guys recommend PA:T considering I really liked SupCom 1?? Can the two be compared?

If you thought Supcom 2 was garbage then you won't like this... it's about a million times worse.

I have a 65" samsung hu9000 (or something like that) in one room and a 55" lg oled in the other, and the oled leaves the samsung for dead.

Can't go back to LCD again... just waiting for OLED monitors to come so i can ditch the technology altogether.

OLED has MASSIVE problems with burn-in right now. You should try quantum dot (JS9000/JS9500) before you swear off LCD. There's even a 48" JS9000 which a lot of people are using as monitors, and it's glorious.

From what i heard first gen oled's were no was no worse than plasma, and i had a early gen 50" pioneer plasma that was around 7+ years old when i sold it on ebay... and it had no signs of burn it at all.

And looking at google re "lg oled burn in" the first result contains "I'd go as far as to say burn-in is effectively impossible on LG's OLEDs" and "I have seen about 5 cases of real burn in and most of the were display models that were hardly ever off. You will get slight image retention from time to time, but actually burn-in for the home user would be almost impossible".

So i'm still not seeing this MASSIVE problem.

Sounds like OLED still wins: Google, comparison-of-lg-eg960v-oled-vs-samsung-55js9000/

And unfortunately way too big for my gaming setup

Sounds like LCD is slowly getting better though, and the more competition the better.
Pretty disappointed with my 'supposed' top of the line 4k samsung.

For a video game? That's beyond retarded. Fucking pro athletes are overpaid but at least they have to put real effort in. Our species is doomed.

I hope you're being sarcastic or you're just ignorant about pro-gaming.

Na, just the local troll.

Nice post btw.

I'm a troll because you're some fat kid who can't play real sports and gets picked on by jocks? Awww, sucks to be you, huh? Son, fat, lazy, and stupid is no way to go through life. You fat little bastards need to get out of youur parents basements. Get some excercise. Try actually speaking to a female. Jesus, and people wonder why you kids are tubs of lard.


lol. The guy with 21,000 posts on a gaming site has spoken.

Hmm... here's an idea, how about you quit projecting your life issues onto others.

The games are pretty... average IMO. Nothing special, but not bad either.
Being fully campaign co-op is a big plus though.

The third one has terrible loot and character progression, whilst the others are much better they are nothing remarkable.

Good buys when they are on sale, as would be this final cut.

Or better put.. HotS is the casuals MOBA

To me it feels like a MOBA for newbies to the genre and casuals. Just as WOW did to the MMO genre - turning it all casual and noob friendly, HOTS is doing to the MOBA genre.

I tried to enjoy the game but it just felt a little lacking in depth and freedom... and the graphics and animations felt really 'clunky'.

At the end of the day, each to the own. Glad you found one you enjoy!

Dota with a new engine sounds great to me. Just wish they'd hurry up add more maps!

For those civ / strategy / co-op fans, age of wonders 3 (and it's expansions) is worth a look and is now 50% off on steam.

Shitty engine, no dev progress, then along comes a better alternative in H1Z1.

What else is there to know?

HotS is like Dota 2 only it's frustrating, it has worse graphics, it's based around grind / P2W, the gameplay is all spam and... well, yeah.

To me it just feels like a MOBA designed to cater to MOBA newbies - kinda like what WOW did with MMO's.

I can only hope that they aren't ridiculously successful (again) or we will end up with nothing but cookie cutter clones of this shallow gameplay and another ruined genre.

I always thought animations were one of blizzards strong points? Guess not so much anymore.
