Well that's it then. That's kind of a relief, actually.

I was holding out hope that D3 could be salvaged some day; now we can just uninstall.

5 Man Squad Obliteration? Come on, DICE.

I know 'pro' gamers, infected by Counterstrike and MOBAs, are into small teams, but DICE really needs to get their act together and start promoting you know, actual Battlefield, aka Conquest.


10-16(+1 Commander) man teams on Conquest or Large Conquest maps, that is what Battlefield is(or at least should be) all about. Air/Land/Sea Vehicles, flags to cap, some infantry heavy spots and some vehicle heavy spots, you know, the gameplay that used to be the ideal, from BF1942, BFV, BF2, etc.

I'm not going to bother suggesting 20, 24 or even 32 man teams, DICE sometimes seems to have forgotten those exist, in terms of clans.

Oh well, BF4 is still a fun pub game at least.

The whole creating a dungeon and trapping it is nice and all, but I want to be the ones invading it. I wish they would make a game type like that where you can be the Heroes invading and looting their dungeons.

Now, that would be kewl. They could even call it Dungeon Invaders.

I should register that name.

That sounds like a decent game idea, unfortunately you will have to work on the name a bit.

Hrm, looking pretty good, and obviously looking much more Dungeon Keeperish than Dungeons 1.

This is still on my wish list, hopefully it turns out to be a good homage to DK1 and 2; those are two of my favorite games, all time.

They're adding and tweaking non-set legendary powers all the time. I think the problem with that (why it's so slow going) is that you do have to take the time and test it and how it interacts with everything else, whereas with sets you can narrow down those test cases because you're ensuring each of those powers is only coming into play when you have multiple specific pieces.

Taking the Marauder DH for example, you only have a handful of variations for that build because to use its full potential requires 5 of the main slots being filled by the set. You don't have to worry about Magefist + Cindercoat being OP in that situation, because it's not possible for your turrets to fire your spenders with only 4 pieces of the set. Wizards can integrate that non-set combo into the Firebird build, but only at the cost of not being able to use a two-handed weapon. And so on.

There are a variety of lore and gameplay reasons as to why they would want sets to be flat-out better than a variety of regular legendaries, though. Easier to balance is just one of them.

I know what you're getting at, but I disagree entirely that there should be balance attempts in a glorified single player game. They should throw powers on EVERY legendary, crazy strong powers, and just let the game flow. Players SHOULD be able to create stupidly strong, broken builds, without using 5 piece set + RoRG.

My opinion, no doubt in the minority of course.

District 9 sequel? NOoooo, don't curse the world with such a request!

That movie is awesome because they don't really dig too deep into what's going to happen afterwards, aka the alien shuttle going back into space, the ghetto aliens scrabbling around, there is no in depth exploration of the racism/speciesism(?) of the south africans towards the aliens, etc. etc.

It'd be like the matrix sequels, the shiny newness worn off and explained into the ground. I get the sense that Bloomkamp knows that, and will never make a sequel, unless they drive dump trucks full of cash up to his house or something.

*EDIT* Also, Prometheus' plot is just too ridiculous. Visually gorgeous film, but my god, the writing... there is no defense.

From the little info they do have, they seem to be doubling down on sets and set bonuses for some reason.

That's just going to make even more regular legendaries pointless...they should really be trying to buff non-set legendaries so people can actually achieve similar power levels with good combos, WITHOUT sets.

Blizzard's WoW mentality is apparently contagious.

Deadpool Just Cast Firefly's Morena Baccarin, Get The Details.

Domino!

And holy shit on that Alien news...made my week!


Fuck yeah, and with Bloomkamp at the helm it might not even suck. Let's just hope they don't stick a PG13 rating on it....

Ah, gorgeous Morena Baccarin, she was great in Firefly and Homeland. I wonder if they might just make her a new character though, Domino doesn't make a ton of sense(more of a Cable support char), and Copycat is pretty boring.

Bloomkamp is extremely talented... I don't always like how his stories end, but I can't see him doing a worse job than Alien 4, or the AvP movie, or the travesty that Prometheus ended up being.

*EDIT* Whoops, spelling.

Nostalgia overload! I already gave in and pre-ordered a few weeks ago; this remaster looks better every time I see videos of it.

I hear they changed how fighters work in HW1, to be more like HW2... I wonder if that'll upset the gameplay at all. I remember storming through Homeworld 1 with basically just capital ships and frigates, almost no corvettes or fighters, as they seemed like a complete waste of resources in most missions.

Jeff Vogel is the man. He definitely covers and recovers a lot of the same ground, but I have to respect him and Spiderweb. Hopefully he pays his contracted artists well.

Does this pack include a 3x scope for my knife?

I know you are joking, but the bipod knife(now a real thing, thanks BFF!) in BF4 has set the bar for great knife addons. A scope would be hilarious.

That said, not buying Hardline until it's like $9.99 or so, if at all.

A couple reviews on Gog.com seem to indicate it gets a bit repetitive, but all the videos of it look really good. It's added to my Steam/Gog sale list.

Clearly SWATting is fucking dangerous and shows real character flaws, but I did find it interesting how easy these jackasses were able to con paypal or amazon employees into giving up personal information.

Social Engineering is alive and well apparently. You would think that would be day 1, don't give random callers information they should already have. If they don't, red flag.

*EDIT* Also apparently all of these SWATters are white as hell. Any non-white person would know there's a real chance the police are going to shoot first and question your dead body later.

1. Never, ever name your product "Grifter"

2. 65,000 is nowhere near what is required to fund this.

3. A modular gamepad that snaps together will survive approximately 60 seconds of heavy duty gaming.

4. Never, ever name your product "Grifter"

Yeah, "Grifta" seems like an ominous naming choice, but I like their idea. I have to wonder why their KS amount is so low though, but then again how expensive is injection molded plastic anyway? I am sure they plan on getting these built by basically slave labor in China or something, so maybe that figure is reasonable.

Early adopters need to jump on this immediately, I'll be in for Grifta 2.0.

You didn't care for Breaking Bad? HERESY.

Also, Better Call Saul seems to be a great show, through the first 2 episodes at least.
