Was going in to The Following with optimism but it quickly turned in to an annoying case of 'been there, done that' within very little time. The Farmsteads which I came across were simply cut and paste jobs and the large map puts emphasis on the buggy at the cost of this strange emptiness populated by breadcrumb vehicles and buffered by zombies.... boring, boring zombies.

I got to the point where I was clearing a Volatile nest in the same tunnel I've seen at least several times before while facing the artificial difficulty boss of infinite respawns and it just hit me that I'm not really interested in the game anymore. I'm sure if I stuck with it longer, it could have done something to shake things up and regain my interest, but.... bleeeeeeh.

Neat idea if you want some return on skills you may have shifted away from over the months or years. Might even use it on my 'jack of all trades' pilot and be able to afford a damn Orca if/when I resub.

It has a single player campaign right out of the gate so that makes it stand a better chance to get funding.

Right?

I only really went there back when AVGN didn't have a site and piggy backed his videos off them.

I don't know about the game but the website appears to be a Guild Wars 2 ripoff.

Seriously. Right down to the font!

Also, will buying this upgrade your base game to the Enhanced Version?

Newton sure ain't doing any better though. He has been sacked so many times that if he were a bag of potatoes, he could feed a small country.

And you're an idiot if you buy/bought xcom from Steam.

This right here. AAA games on Steam have been $80 CDN for some time and when they do go on sale, it's usually some bullshit 10% discount whereas other sites like GMG have nearly permanent 20 - 25% discount codes months in advance of and after release. I wouldn't even recommend buying regular titles or during sale events without first scanning a site like Dealzon.

Double post.

For some reason my delete password which is saved to form is different than the password I use to log in to my account?

How to design computer peripherals:

Give it a titanic name
Throw in extra zeroes in the name
Gun-metal grey
Throw in buzzwords like "sleek and stealth aesthetics"
Give it lots of flashing light options
Fancy mechanical switch wordplay
Extensive macroing ability which can potentially get you banned in online games

Bam, $200.

Asus took it one step further with adding a carrying case. Lol.

Even if if ran like butter across a hot pan there's no way I could justify giving them any money. Rewarding them for their incompetence is a bad message to send even after the patching fact.

Lol, "everything handed to you?" You get one free set, and even then it's not like they're guaranteed to be great rolls or anything. Saves you maybe a couple hours of farming Torment 1-2 after hitting 70 to gather the pieces yourself before you can get rolling with a new build, that's all...

One free set would be fine if the set you received was specifically designed as being 'entry level'. However, in the case of the Crusader, you're given Invoker's which is literally one of the most over-powered sets in the game. Even with mediocre rolls, you're basically able to crawl from GR20 to get your 6pc to running through GR40 while making mobs melt before your eyes without one of the recommended weapon/shield combinations or Endless Walk within an hour or two max of hitting 70.

Throw in the new Steed Charge set and TX farming is incredible.

GR50s is low, even for Hardcore, but the fact that I could do it with such little effort in such short time with sub-optimal gear had the opposite effect on me in regards to retention. It doesn't help that the Invoker's set is super boring too as you don't even need a spender.

I honestly got bored after three days in to this patch in spite of all the changes. You literally get gear mailed to you for hitting level cap and the rest fall in to place by completing the most trivial tasks. I was clearing GR50 in Hardcore within those three days with my Invoker's Crusader and that just drained me of interest because everything is just handed to you.
