I think I tried to get in once and the server wouldn't let me play so I quit and forgot about it.

I didn't even buy anything on sale. I just have to much stuff to finish already.
I think I picked up 2 games during this sale. There are others I'd like to get, but I've got so much to play already that I can easily wait until the holiday sale to get anything else. I haven't even started Witcher 3 yet, and that alone could last for a couple months, with other things like HotS mixed in.

I do lurv me some near-future RTS. And this is the same guys as the Wargame series, which is pretty good. The only caveat is that this is the follow-up to Act of War, which was just okay. That was a long time ago, so these guys must have learned a trick or two since then.

I thought Act of War (and its expansion) were pretty good. Better than most other RTSes of the time.

I'm sure I'll be buying this, but I tend to wait at least 6 months or so for mods to fix all the stupid decisions they made, as well as the half-assed quests and areas, and for patches to deal with the inevitable horde of bugs.

These games are generally fairly bad at release, and would stay that way if not for the modding community.

Edit: Oh yeah, and if they try any paid mods crap with this, then it's no-buy for me.

HotS is like Dota 2 only it's frustrating, it has worse graphics, it's based around grind / P2W, the gameplay is all spam and... well, yeah.

I really hate Blizzard's P2W business model. Hearthstone was ruined because of it. Valve nailed it with Dota 2, which is why this is so frustrating.

Uhh, yeah. There's nothing P2W about it. I've only been playing for about a month off and on. I'm new to MOBAs aside from a fairly brief stint with LoL. This game has less tedious and annoying aspects than LoL, and I'm having a pretty good time with it. Just hit lvl 25 which unlocks all talents. It starts you off playing co-op against AI, which is good. Then let's you play against other teams. Gotta get to lvl 30 I think to access ranked play, but I have little interest in that anyway. I may pay to get permanent access to some heroes, but I've already made over 25K gold, so I can buy some anyway.

I've been playing with it for the past month or so. It's basically the fun parts of other MOBAs, without so much of the tedious, annoying stuff. I like it. It's got the typical Blizzard polish, and it's free. Can't really find much wrong with it.

I'll give this a shot when it comes out. Blizzard is pretty good at polishing games, even if they did screw the pooch with D3. I'm pretty sure they'll fix the annoying crap during the inevitable beta.

I don't mind F2P, as long as it's not P2W. I play PoE and HotS, which are both F2P and just fine.

I did eventually get my Witcher 3 key from GMG yesterday. They also sent along a 40% off code for my next purchase, so that helps too.

No, not really their job to trump up a bunch of crap to create a ridiculous sentence possibility in order to coerce plea bargains. If you want to see what prosecutors consider to be fair treatment, look at how the handle cases involving cops. No charge stacking or coercion there.

I don't have my key from GMG yet. Not sure when that's supposed to go out.

They don't always send them out. Check your game key list on GMG o see if it's been added.


Yeah, still says no key available. Guess I keep waiting...

I started playing around with Heroes a couple weeks ago. So far I've just been playing vs. AI, trying to learn the basics of the strategy and as many of the heroes as I can. I'm a MOBA noob, so this was probably a good way to go. I'm a couple matches away from hitting player level 20 now.

Overall, I haven't run into anything more than minor annoyance from other players. Some have been helpful, and others frustrated, but nothing that was truly obnoxious. I'm sure that regular matches could get a little more heated. The AI is pretty easy to beat if at least most of your team is playing decent. Have had some matches where a player or two were making things very difficult though.

Now I'm trying to decide what to get with the gold I've accumulated, and whether to buy the Nexus bundle.

This is nothing new. It's been going on for years. Toothless European privacy organization gets pissed about it, but has no authority to do anything. Nothing new on that front either. The comments were amusing though.

Anyone happen to know why I keep getting redirected to ad sites when I open a comment page on Blue's? I'm using Dolphin Jetpack browser on Android. It's REALLY annoying.

Yeah, aside from requiring the custom blade, it looks like it could be pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Probably be able to get one at Home Depot after a while.

GMG is offering 27% off on pre-order of Witcher 3. Now I'm tempted to get it and bump it up to the top of the backlog. Dammit. I was just starting to make some progress too :-/

Apparently, CD Projekt doesn't want people to buy it from GMG.

You mean GOG? I broke down and picked it up, even though I very rarely pre-order games. $43.80 was a decent price for it. It's a GOG key rather than Steam though.

Possibly GOG, but GOG is owned by CD Projekt. Unless this changed and I was unaware.

It is. Guess offers like this one are a way to direct people toward using their service instead of Steam.
