News Comments > Rainbow Six Siege Free Update
1. Re: Rainbow Six Siege Free Update Feb 2, 2016, 22:12 Whiskers
 
Pretty fun game, but there are still some issues that make it really frustrating. I'm hoping they get some of the lag compensation, player orientation, and first person view point fixed up soon. Having a blast in the game still.

News Comments > Hearthstone Adds New Standard Mode

yep, but you can still craft the cards using dust, which you couldn't do before. I'm curious to see how this all will play out. The most recent League of Explorers was a great adventure and brought a lot of fun cards. I'm hoping this "standard" mode wont' take 1+ years to change cards that are clearly unbalanced, as is the current "standard".

I don't get how Coop wasn't put into this. Would be amazing to explore the world with friends. Coop seems to be the last thing on people's minds these days, and I prefer it over any PvP gamemode.

News Comments > Rainbow Six: Siege Patch Addresses Cheating

You can also start a custom match to play by yourself and learn the maps. YOu still have a time limit, but it's great for running around and exploring.

I am really enjoying Siege, but there are a couple issues keeping it from being great. The netcode is slowly getting better, but I really hope they change the view so that it matches your head and bullets come from the barrel of the gun. Right now there are a lot of deaths where you are totally confused, because what you think you're doing doesn't match what the opponent sees, i.e. you are sticking out way more from cover than you appear to be.

https://steamdb.info/ and https://isthereanydeal.com/ are pretty good for tracking games and their prices over time

While it is true that hackers have ruined the "Freemode" part of GTA Online, if you get into a large crew (there are plenty!) you can have a ton of fun with the game. The open world part is fun, but I mostly do racing these days. Once you get a good group of people together who know how to race, it's pretty awesome. And when you are done racing you can hop out and go blow stuff up for a bit.

I read they just had a recent patch that addressed some of the netcode issues. I'm hoping it goes on a slight sale next week. Looks like it should be fun (if they can get the netcode right). Took Battlefield 4 a while to work that out, but I don't know how much I trust Ubisoft

It's Gearbox, so I'm surprised. Usually their trailers look great and the games suck

Their biggest mistake was using the Virtual Reality Engine from Arma. Their greatest success was getting all these suckers to buy into it before it was "finished".

Hopefully this update does something about all the modders on PC. It's nearly impossible to have any fun in GTA Online anymore because hackers either cheat at the freemode events, set everyone on fire, or just blow everyone up. Haven't been in a public lobby without a hacker in weeks.

$40 for early access? No thanks. I'm super excited to play this, but I'll wait until it is either mostly finished or further along before spending that much money. Plenty of other great games out right now.

Clearly games workshop has some crazy fine print or something, otherwise you'd think bigger developers who can make actual fun and interesting games (like Relic) would have kept with the franchise. It's just sad to see such a rich and exciting universe wasted on all these crappy games.

It's really a shame DICE locks down their engine from modding. Imagine all of the amazing Battlefield 2 mods that could have been made for Battlefield 4.

Given that they have 20+ dlc, you'd think they wouldn't need microtransactions on top of it. Guess they need some more of that cash, dolla dolla bills.

Hopefully if people are that upset about it they stop buying dlc and such. Speak with your wallets, not your words!

News Comments > Hearthstone League of Explorers Next Week
1. Re: Hearthstone League of Explorers Next Week Nov 7, 2015, 07:37 Whiskers
 
Pretty smooth not announcing this with enough lead up time to allow people to know something is coming and save up gold. Now they gotta spend that cash, dollar dollar bills.

Overall I loved Hearthstone, but recently I've started to get a little frustrated with the developers lack of insight into the community and the meta of the game. Instead of introducing new cards that seem to change the meta and take down the dominant class, they just seem to add random crap, most of which will never be played. The fact that it's a digital card game and it takes them 5 months to nerf something that is clearly an issue is just insane.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the unlocking system in this game through random card drops at the end of a mission is not very fun. Adding in these safes and drills just adds to the amount of random crap that keeps you from getting what you really want.

Pretty excited for some new content! I'm not a huge fan of low riders, but some of the stuff looks pretty cool. GTA Online is a lot of fun!

I'm surprised it took them this long to institute this stupid practice. They've been releasing cash grab DLC for quite a while now.

Edit: I was never a fan of their unlocking method either. You'd buy weapon attachments and then have to unlock them through the random card selection at the end of the missions. It was way more enjoyable to install the GoonMod, which let you just buy the attachments you wanted.
