If games are movies it's a waste of time but if games are systems this is the same as anything else. Much slower pace of course but thats often why it seems compelling to fire it up after a hard days work or when my attention is split.

Bought a pack of this but got some weird Druid beast rare which cooled my enthusiasm.

I guess Inspire and joust is to counter all of the aggro decks that were dominating the meta? Based on my Arena run with some of the inspire cards its easier to get some combos going than it was before.

Oh noes?

Is there much demand for splitscreen play on PCs anymore?

I played Castle Crashers coop the other night. I own and have played almost all split screen games because that's what's fun for me. One notable one that is split screen on console and not on computer- Borderlands 2.

Now for a theory as to why PC loses split screen even though its more powerful: The split screen on consoles only works because they gut the resolution and detail, probably in hacked together work-arounds. The flexibility of the PC may break these modes a little too easily and the devs aren't going to waste build versions on a feature that doesn't net them any extra cashon the surface.

Hots is very easy to get into. I played Dota (1) and avoided MOBAs for years because of the items and shit, but it even gates your only choices in the beginning so you can focus on the simple things.

I wonder what's going to happen to Desura. If the digital distribution platform is taken offline, and everyone loses their libraries, it won't be pretty. This might turn into a small preview of the Steampocalypse.

I've been saying this for years. People prefer ignorance and "convenience" though

Well to be fair, convenience was only like $30 net over many years (I probably gave Royal $15 for tons of games). Sure, principles and etc., but for indie games this is hardly the worst thing in the world.

Get that Hard Reset key though, it's good.

A new controller design is fine I suppose but I don't understand why we're praising Valve for trying to push the PC gaming community onto the couch and at the same time lowering the bar on PC game input design to being on par with console gaming? If nothing else this just reinforces the argument for "consolized UI" in games and ports to the PC.

Very fair. Shouldn't PCs be a jumping off point for more complicated hardware, not streamlining? Sure the form factor needs adjusting from kb/m, but I have a 15 button mouse for just my right hand. I can't believe the kb/m is the end of the line best form factor for the most input. Even if it is, the current controller design only barely ties my right hand, theres got to be a better middle ground.

Well the first bloated bundle company corpses are washing up on the beach I guess. Now that everyone has a 500 game library there's no need to pick up Alien Maze Thing 4 even at a deep discount.

I've been playing with it for the past month or so. It's basically the fun parts of other MOBAs, without so much of the tedious, annoying stuff. I like it. It's got the typical Blizzard polish, and it's free. Can't really find much wrong with it.

Agreed. Don't have to worry about items/cash, which makes this genre actually playable to me. Lets me play the game and split my attention on micro objectives infront of me, not timing the meta.

Some of the matches creep up into 30 minute territory. If anything, I wish they stayed around 20 minutes with big increases in NPCs to force the conclusion at 25.

Virtua fighter accurately models the tiny ranges and plodding footsteps of a real fight.

I prefer screen filling super moves personally.

It's a damn shame. Well at least I won't feel bad when Konami's game division crashes and burns finally. Maybe after the publisher calls it quits we can get a good Silent Hill kickstarted in 2025?

If you follow the trend, Half Life 3 is obviously going to be a Build-A-Sequel where you purchase textures and enemies ala carte.

Appreciate Dota but even back when it was a WC3 mod I felt like it was impossible to figure out all of the item combos. This is the first Moba I'll give a serious try. I know these are popular but for skill I prefer to spend time with fighting games

My first instinct is that, dollars to donuts this goes into a congressional report as a successful intercept of terrorist activity.

Reading the tweet though it's a little uncomfortable.

It doesn't hurt that they basically pay you to use it. Don't tell anyone though once they crack 30% market share they'll probably stop. Um...don't read this. Forget I said anything
