I've been thinking about picking this up as a new loot grind game, but I keep hearing really bad things mixed with the good to put me off... steam sale of it really wasn't that big either.

Ok here are some good and bad points.

Solid AI (a group of baddies will do everything in their power to get above/behind/flank you.
Solid city environment.
Solid gameplay mechanics.
Interesting skill system and upgrade system via the HQ.

The bad:
Before the last patch, forcing people into the Dark Zone for good equipment.
Removing any sort of Risk vs Reward system in the Dark Zone with grief'ers now able to cut the cable when trying to extract items from the Dark zone.
Flooding the game with more "sets" then 5 Everquest expansions put together.
Instead of having challenging events/missions, doing a really bad job at having Capcom boss 'patterns' and baddies who just have more health and damage then having unique interesting baddies.
Needing an experienced MMO team to help design and maintain the end game. They are hemorrhaging players at an alarming rate, and to "fix" this are just throwing in more content too fast, untested and not seeing if it's a challenge and yet fun/rewarding.

Yeah you can grind if you want to, but it's nowhere near as repetitive as Diablo 3.

Already pre-ordered, this and Prey.

Stoked for the new titanfall, watchdogs, and battlefield... but more stoked for this and Prey. replayed the original prey a week ago, IMO the last great game from that golden age of SP FPS games. Pound for pound, I think Prey is better than halflife.

You pre-ordered a game that has 1 cgi trailer?

Apple phones suffer from anorexia.

But Apple needs to pick a fucking size already. Ipod, to Ipod Shuffle to Iphone to fat Iphone.

i tend to think full elves are more diminutive than half elves - they get the zugzug burliness from their human half. assuming your other half is human of course =D

They have added a lot of weapons and game modes to TF2, some of which have completely altered the way the game is played.

Saying it's "just hats" just means you haven't played it.

Yeah I guessI never played it. Would you like a picture of The Orange Box and the Half Life 2 t-shirt that came in it as well?

Took longer then expected but I am officially a High School Graduate.

Graduation gifts should be limited to Steam Gift Cards, Alcohol delivered to my door, and a full body massage by Chris Evans (Captain America suit is optional, but must bring the shield).

Special thanks to Batz for all his help, support, and someone I could aspire to be like, especially after this last year.

Congratz for finally going FULL ELF!

What, you never, ever go FULL ELF? Whatever. Congratulations are in order, Mr. Elf.

Thank you all. I'm 6'3 (got my cap and gown today), so just imagine if I'm a Half Elf, what a Full Elf would look like. The Incredible Hulk-Elf™ doesn't quite roll off the tongue.

The hitboxes in this game make launch day BF4 look like CS:GO LAN. It's hilarious that 1) TF2 exists for free and is superior in every way and 2) people will pay almost AAA price for a busted, half-baked, 10 years too late title.

But hey, it's Blizzard, so I guess the masses of idiots will just throw money at them.

TF2 is as different to Overwatch as CSGO is to Battlefield. And before you think 'yeah TF2 is better...' perhaps you should also remind yourself how barebones TF2 was at launch, compared to what has become of it.

Because playing Barbie dress up™ with hats added how much depth to the game?

Good on ya. Whilst I can't get my hands on Chris Evans I'll see if I can't rustle up a lumberjack for you.

Instead, it'll have the Crew's radar blips until you find the dish mechanism.

Yeah if it's not a tower in Far Cry, it's a tower in Assassin's Creed, or a tower in Watch Dogs, or a radar dish in The Crew.

Great! Prepare for Toxicwatch, taking toxic player behavior to limits never imagined even in such a venerated title as Heroes of the Shitstorm.

Based on what exactly?

Tell you what, why don't you go play Paragon or Battleborn and we'll be right over to play with you... in roughly.... never.

The KEY to Overwatch is taking a character that supplements the ENTIRE team. And the best way to do that is to learn several characters and their skills and how best to use them with other characters on the team. Like Rein or Russian chick with Faith or Lucio

Milo? Eh... no.

Sony has been smart this generation. Let other's make the first move, and see where they can make it better/cheaper then the competition.

(Cheaper and better are both subjective)
