News Comments > Heroes of the Storm Finds Lost Vikings
3. Re: Heroes of the Storm Finds Lost Vikings Feb 11, 2015, 09:50 Frijoles
 
What they need are maps. More heroes is interesting, but I'm not going to level that many heroes. I've settled on one I like and I'll probably stick to that one and just occasionally try others. But maps... one of the key differences between this and DOTA is the map rotation. I hope they come out with a new map at least every couple of months or so, otherwise they may get a bit boring.

anyone want to chime in on the game? 13 of those in my friends list r playing, prez and vince over 30 hours. anyone post about it and i missed it?

Very predictable story. Most of the zombies are just an annoyance, even after an hour in to the game. The larger zombies are easy to avoid (except the spitting zombies, fuck them). Night starts off pretty difficult, but you soon learn how to avoid the stronger zombies. Plus flares are everywhere (flare = portable safe zone).

Humans can be a bit harder to kill, but they're really not that difficult either. Just toss a molotov at them. The real threat is falling to your death.

I put 22 hours in to the game and focused primarily on the main story (with a few hours for side stuff). Levels come too slowly, but I found new gear all the time. Upgrades on gear was a bit pointless though since the game slowly increases the damage you get from found items. There's also the typical "let's take all his weapons away" parts, which I hated. And the end boss fight was crap.

Overall I enjoyed it. There's a lot of different ways to kill zombies, and that's fun. Certainly not game of the year though. I think $30 would have been a good price.

So $80 for the full game ($30 for the cheapest DLC). Makes me wonder why they didn't release at $30 and put some DLC up in a month for another $50.

And I have to admit that visually the demo does not look good. It looks like it's already a decade old.

Maybe they're following the visual style of Shroud of the Avatar. That is, make it look like shit for some reason or another.

They also say the new owners still plan on releasing EverQuest Next as planned, though it sounds like supporting PCs is a low priority going forward

Going forward, SOE/Daybreak is low priority for me. Everquest Next looked kinda neat, too. Big ol' pass now.

Is StarCitizen now the most profitable game never made?

WoW has probably made a few bucks.

Nor would they get business again. I bought mine from GMG and have never had an issue with keys from there. But one slip-up like this and I'd never purchase from there again.

Grey Goo is quite a competent RTS by the way, very nice campaign FANTASTIC CGI characters and a sort of decent story.

The voice acting is well done as well. Unfortunately the campaign sounds a bit short at 15 maps. I think I just finished scenario #4. The units are interesting. At map 4, I had a "I didn't know they could do that!" moment. Not sure if it's worth the $50 yet, but so far I'm enjoying it.

Game is a lot of fun with the Rift. It's too bad they didn't finish that off. It's very close, but some things aren't quite there. Still a lot of fun though.

I bought H1Z1, but can't play it because you can't even remap your controls. ?!?!?!?!?!? *facepalm*

Pretty sure you can edit one of the .xml files to rebind keys. I saw a post about it somewhere while I was looking in to the game.

Any reason why Alien Isolation gets no nods at all?

Not enough wheels greased. I like that you can tell what games they played since most of the lists look almost the same.

This game has been getting some positive reviews lately. I stopped playing it back shortly after launch because I couldn't find any quests to progress my character. Didn't care to sit around waiting for those group quests to pop up. Anyone still playing it that can chime in on the state of the game these days?

Things I don't want in a Far Cry 4 DLC: Timed shit, multiplayer shit, no guns.

Things I DO want in a Far Cry 4 DLC: New fortress to assault, one that actually is hard. And huge. We're talking a massive mountain base where I can't just snipe people off one by one from a mile away until I win.

"Be careful, Ajay! You're near a fortress and may require help!" Clearly the Golden Path is full of imbeciles who can't shoot straight.

Change your pw regularly, use randomly generated pw, use keypass, and keep the keypass datafile on a usb (pw wallets are the new target).

I lose USB drives weekly it seems. I hope some day I find where they're all going. It'll be like finding a treasure.

I really miss the grappling hook from Quake, so this sounds interesting to me. I'll have to dust off my hats and give this a shot.

they really burned a lot of people with that Draconian DRM they are using.

I won't buy #2 because I can't play #1 due to constant crashing. The game is a piece of shit. If that's the DRM, they should remove that shit. WTF do they think Steam is? Bah! Pretty fun for 45 minutes. They just released a patch yesterday or so. I'm hoping it fixed some of the issues.

But the game costs $5? Wouldn't steam take 40% of that or something retarded? Just asking, but Steam doesn't seem nice to cheap games.

The game has microtransactions as well, so they'd be exposed to many more sales on Steam. I'm a little surprised they're charging anything for the base game considering Hearthstone is free, but I haven't looked in to it at all.

I'm not saying they have to sell on Steam, just that I hate making new purchases from various sites. I don't like having my info out there. I assume they take PayPal, so it's not such a big deal. It's just easier on Steam since I already have everything setup there. And honestly, all the posts here have me interested, so I'll probably try to get the trial working again and give it a shot.

well it has it's own launcher, like many games do nowadays. so what about having to log into steam and the launcher is more appealing than just the launcher?

Buying a game on Steam:

1) Open store page
2) Click buy

Buying this game. I know this because I tried:

1) Download launcher stub.
2) Open launcher. Download full launcher.
3) Try to remember password.
4) Fail. Try to reset password. Repeat 3 - 4 until I give up.
5) Give up.

You're selling it pretty well, but unfortunately I can't login. Whether that's because I fail at reading and it's not the Minecraft login system, or because they refuse to send me a reset password, I dunno. I also don't care enough to dig deeper. This would all be a thing of the past if it were on Steam.

I don't know why anyone brings up customer service. What are you doing that you need customer service from Steam or any other of these places? I've got over 10 years in Steam, and well over half a K of games in the library, and I've never once even considered the existence of customer service for Steam much less the need for it.

You seem comfortable having your whole game library tied up on the whim of a single person at Valve and what mood they're in. I'm not.
