News Comments > PC No Man's Sky Confirmed?
19. Re: PC No Man's Sky Confirmed? Aug 1, 2014, 16:46 descender
 
Popular... with the niche hardcore gaming audience? Sure. Just like 120/144hz LCD's... but do you think even half of all LCD's sold today are higher than 60hz? A quarter? PC games simply aren't going to drive 4K TV's out to millions of homes. Broadcast TV content does that, and it always completely controls the adoption of new TV standards. 4K will be no different. Massive upgrades (both consumer and infrastructure) will be necessary to accommodate 4K content, and it's certainly not happening next year.

Until someone is delivering 100+ channels in 4K, I don't expect the adoption rate to be high enough to influence anything related to gaming. There will be another round of consoles before 4K becomes close to 'standard'. PC gaming has always outshone consoles, in every facet and any time period. 4k TV's aren't going to suddenly make people wise to that fact.

DA:O on the consoles didn't have the overhead isometric view that the PC had, so this seems to be more of the same.

News Comments > New Hearthstone Wing
8. Re: New Hearthstone Wing Jul 30, 2014, 14:49 descender
 
In case anyone was wondering where it was like I just did for 5 minutes... the option to buy the new wings for gold does not appear in the shop. The only option there is the $20 "full adventure".

You have to go into "Solo Adventures" first, and attempt to unlock the new wing in that screen. Then you will see the 700 gold purchase option.

EDIT: I still don't get the gripe on the pricing. IMO, 6 unique cards (11 total) for 700g is not really a bad deal. If you don't want the cards in any of your decks then you don't pay for them. I don't think the "content" or the boss fights is really the main attraction here, acquiring new cards is.

Paying real money for it is just being impatient/silly. If you aren't playing enough to rack up the gold to buy the wings for free... why would you need/want the new cards in the first place?

News Comments > Steam Controller Redesigned?
5. Re: Steam Controller Redesigned? Jul 23, 2014, 18:24 descender
 
Why? Every time they change this controller, I want it a little bit less.

Maybe there should be a D-pad there, but definitely not an analog stick. No reason to give in to the whiny console babies who don't can't understand how great those touchpads will be.

I just beat the 3 normal bosses fairly quickly with a priest deck, the last boss did some really strange things with the hero power and I won on the first try... woops. The class challenges were interesting, playing with a preset deck, but not too difficult.

The heroic bosses are just insane.

If anyone was worried about "completing" this part of the content too quickly well... good luck. The first heroic boss summons a 4/4 for 2 mana on turn one, and then it gets worse from there.

I'm a little disappointed that these new bosses aren't playable characters in at least some game mode... but I suppose there are more expansions to be made sold. :p The boss powers would be fun to use even if it was a dumbed down version of them. Maybe there will be a boss vs boss mode so they don't have to balance it with the rest of the game.

Enjoying this.

This is not quite accurate. There are only 2 class challenges for the current wing, Druid and Rogue. It says in the game that 9 of the bosses have a class challenges, so I suppose there will be 2 in each wing until the last week.

15 boss fights with 2 difficulties, 9 class challenges and 30 new cards seems to be what you get in the $20/2800g Naxxramas package.

There's no reason to spend real money on the game, other than impatience. I agree that each individual game is a little "luck of the draw" but... what card game isn't? That can't be a real complaint when "card draw" is basically always the most powerful ability in CCG. You can't judge the depth of this game by the ability to win any single match-up IMO.

I don't agree that there is "limited deck design". Maybe if you are only interested in copying the most powerful decks from the internet that are currently "breaking" the metagame and not coming up with your own decks? I only wish they would allow MORE slots to create MORE custom decks at once, limiting it to 9 basically means you can only have 1 saved deck per class.

Getting into single digit ranks has proved quite difficult (for me at least, without using popular internet decks like the zoo/frostmage/miracle rogue). Constructed (ranked) play is hard and can certainly get frustrating when you start to run into lots of legendaries. That's why I tend to spend most of my time in the Arena.

I've quite enjoyed my time with Hearthstone so far, and obviously still have more to learn. Like SimplyMonk said... grind, grind, grind for more free cards.

Anything is better than spending real money on MTG. Fuck that noise!

I only expect impatient people to pay for this content. The other wings are going to be basically the same 15 challenges.

I've already saved up 1000 gold since they announced the price structure, maybe 3 weeks ago? Just by doing daily quests and not really playing any other matches. Just stop playing arena/buying packs for a little while and you'll easily collect the 2100 gold you need to buy the other 3 wings.

I imagine there are gold bonuses for beating the wings/bosses too? I'm too busy losing to this first challenge to know :p

I had maybe 180k kills in L4D before they reset the stats, and another 130k after that. Probably another 200k in L4D2.

The monthly leader on the TF2 server I frequent usually has around 4-5k kills per month (50k per year!), and those are all actually other people... not just ai fodder like the zombies.

This number has got to be way too low... you are probably actually killing close to 100k things a year if you play games regularly.

Some of the new cards are craaazy, deathrattles everywhere. I think silence cards will be more important going forward.

Capitalism only actually works for a small fraction of society, if the people ever realize that... the game will be over. Did someone below actually suggest that "socialism created the wealth gap"?! Capitalism suffers from selfishness and greed, and FEEDS on economic disparity. There is nothing inherently wrong with socialism/communism... such boogeyman words :p It's hilarious how indoctrinated people can be.
