It's kind of hilarious how forward thinking Hellgate London was in some ways and how backwards it was in others.

This whole trailer seems to be aimed at the graphics concerns from the previous media they put out. Of course they should probably have an asterisk somewhere in the video that leads to *running on SLI GeForce 780s.

Well, now I feel kind of silly. What on earth made me think blues posters would have anything approaching a sense of perspective?

Seriously, if you can't understand why some people would want to make bots, and comepete against others who also have bots, you're one massively uncreative dude.

"Defending cheaters?" Are you fucking joking?

FWIW I understood what you were shooting for, I just happen to disagree

Last of Us on PS4 was a no-brainer, tons of converted Xbros who would probably pick it up after hearing all of the hype.

I think they should just outright ban them all but I guess people are too scared of legal liability these days.

Not understanding why you guys are so dead set against the game. I get that you many donít want to play it. But forming opinions about a beta that does not represent the final product is kind of strange to me.

I'm not dead set, just sort of indifferent. You've done the same thing in reverse BTW, coming to a positive conclusion based on beta play. Asking people not to evaluate a game they're playing is kind of weird. I can ignore a lot of the "beta" aspects of the game like broken quests but the core of the game itself just didn't grab me. Maybe that will change in the future but in the meantime I think I'll just pass.

I love the Tropico games, definitely looking forward to this. No clue that co-op was a mode now, it will be neat to see how they implement it.

As far as MOBAs go Smite isn't bad, I think its probably the most forgiving I've ever played and the arena mode is quite fun. It is probably the one MOBA game I would recommend to people who think MOBAs are too hard or have a large learning curve. Most of my complaints are interface related but perhaps I'm just spoiled after seeing the interface mastery in DOTA2.

I'm glad others are having a good time with it but I don't know, this just didn't grab me at all. Floaty, janky combat with most of the MMOisms I've grown to dislike. For me this doesn't capture what makes Elder Scrolls games enjoyable or really do anything to distinguish itself in any way. Anyways I'm not going to make any F2P style comments but I'll definitely be passing on this, just not my bag.

Dang, I have all the wired solutions, but was hoping for wireless that some here liked and would rave about.

If all you care about is listening to TV show dialogue or something then you can probably get by with some wireless Sennheisers. Get some RF based ones if you don't think there will be a lot of interference. Just be aware that crackling and popping can be issue with these things, particularly if you move around a bit while listening. I wouldn't count on good sound quality either, I have a pair I use for the treadmill and they're adequate but not much else.

Stay away from anything super cheap and anything IR based.

On a continuation of yesterday - one person mentioned headphone setup while significant other was sleeping.

Anyone else use that setup? I would like to watch tv/game while using headphones at night when kid and wife are asleep. Any suggestions for that?

Setup, required hardware, kits, etc... thanks!

(all of my tvs are current LCDs or LEDs with HDMI and all that fun stuff - currently my 2 receivers and sound systems are dead. )

New receiver with headphone out, they are super cheap these days. Failing that hopefully your TV has a few old RCA audio outs and you can hook up to those with an adapter. If you only have a toslink out then you can get a little $20 DAC box and hook up to that. Wireless headphones are largely garbage so I would avoid those.

How come no one is talking about how flawless this was?

Going by the official forums it wasn't flawless but regardless it's an expansion launch by a big company so it should just sort of be assumed that they can do it properly. Conditioning from previous poor launches and companies like EA has established a poor norm.

I'm going to wait on grabbing this, having fun leveling paragon and grabbing loot atm. It's shocking, I kill things and loot drops that I actually have to think about as a viable replacement to current gear. Also changed up to an Archon/Beam of doom build and finding killing things much easier.

Yeah same here, gonna wait and see how people feel after the honeymoon period is over. I like the changes they made in 2.0 but a few of the reviews I read this morning said that Adventure mode is kind of a letdown compared to rifts. I hear a lot of mixed stuff about the Crusader too. Hopefully some owners can weigh in on these things.

Can't say I'm really surprised. I still enjoy BF4, but damn, they have some of the worst QA I've ever seen. Every patch just introduces new issues. I don't remember BF3 having nearly as many problems.

Maybe we'll get another month of free battlepacks!

The hilarious thing is when they reintroduce older bugs that were already fixed, has happened several times already.

I don't know, reading further into that he says the game itself is a ton of fun once you get past the tutorial levels and the ports issues.

i dont know about Astro A40 headsets, if they're really worth $250 for a gaming headset.

You're basically paying for the amp and marketing IMO. I had to disassemble my buddys A40s since they were busted out of warranty and he was broke. I wasn't very impressed with the build quality and the sound isn't very good either. The best headset thats also reasonably priced for its components and works well with glasses are the Siberia V2s. I think he'd be better off with a nice set of plush pads from something like the Audio-Technica line but the Siberias are certainly much cheaper.

Blues situation is a bit weird though since I just noticed he said he doesn't care about sound since he might be using speakers anyway so really any old $20 around the neck headset or earbud mic would do the job.

had SR80s but unfortunately they died after cable connection was loose and sound stopped coming out of one ear.

If you ever run into this again and have a soldering iron, it's usually caused by a pulled wire or cheap solder and easy to fix.
