Played a good 2 hrs last night. Well the in game tutorial sucks imo.
It has a steep learning curve (for new players like myself) for seasoned 4X players the game might be easier to pick up.
I've expanded a bit too quickly and then aliens were attacking me left right and center, and I've had no fleet to fight them back.
I also didn't realize to make an embassy as soon as I meet a new race so improve relationships with them.

After I finished playing last night I've watched some let's plays and realized where I've made my mistakes.
All in all I enjoy the game, but have to put many more hours into it to learn how to play properly.

The only downside is that people absolutely would fall on their face when trying to lean on the car to reach something in the back.

At what frame rate do people actually say something positive?
If you are looking to hear anything positive about the new Doom, I am afraid you are on the wrong website.

Stupid work! 7 hours to go.

Yeah, I gotta wonder what they were thinking launching on a Monday.
Monday or Tuesday, I don't think it makes a huge difference for most people that are working during the week.

Check out some Let's Play videos on YouTube. I admit that I am a little late in discovering them (started with Civ: Beyond Earth) but they've been great in helping me figure out if I want to pick something up. I find them to be more reliable than a written review.
Agreed.
Check out Quil18's channel. He has an awesome let's play series going on.
Mal is another pretty good youtuber with a great Stellaris series, that not only shows you the gameplay he also teaches you the basics of the gameplay.

I picked up the new Doom and I'm actually really looking forward to it - both singleplayer and the snapmap thing. No intention of playing multiplayer and I figure it couldn't be any worse than Doom 3, right?

I don't care about multi either, but whats the snapmap?

edit: Reading about it now - that's like the first thing about this new doom that sounds interesting!

edit again: Ok, that's fucking awesome!
I am grabbing it also.
I didn't like the MP beta all that much but I still want to play some SP Doom.
Also have Stellaris ordered. Quill videos sold me on it.

Edit: hmm... I don't see the deal on it at GMG either
Got it in one of their emails: overwatch-origins-edition , and then use 20OFF * at checkout. Don't know if it works since I can't even add to basket due to the aforementioned region restriction (or if the asterisk was just a footnote or actually part of the campaign code.)

Apparently its restricted in the US too. I just get the "not available in your region" message.
Yup US only.
Cdkeys have the Origins edition for $45

Same goes for Paragon, a game from a genre that I historically dislike greatly. Sometimes video games just click with a person and it can be hard to put a finger on why that is.
Paragon is one beautiful game that's for sure. I haven't played the beta enough to decide if I'd like to keep playing it or not but I did enjoy myself in that single match I did.

I stopped playing TF2 when it got all crazy with crafting, but the thing that stands out the most is the player count.

A. Overwatch has a much lower team size compared to TF2, and this means, which means newbs, AFKs, and poor teamwork is more obvious and can be a significant disadvantage.

B. Teamwork is a MUST in Overwatch, it's up there with Counter-Strike IMO because your team could be completely outplayed without coordination, aka voice comm.

C. Adapting to the other team by changing classes throughout the match is also required, your can't just pick one class and use it for an entire night, without potentially undermining your team.
Which is why just playing alone without people you know on your team is going to be challenging.
If you have a group of friends to play this with, than it will be a blast. Otherwise, get ready to be frustrated.

Do you still earn game xp and level up and stuff in custom games?

now that I don't know the answer to.
Thanks anyways.
I'll check it out tonight when I get home from work.
I have the beta installed but didn't really screw around with custom games, only did a match vs Ai and online against human players.

Can you run a full match with just one human player and the remainder bots on the human player's team and the opposition team?

Thanks!
Not as far as I know.

Yes you can, use the custom game setup.
Ahh I didn't know you can do that, thanks!

Well I did play Doom mp beta. It was extremely blurry, like it upscaled a lower resolution.
Wasn't there something about the mp beta had the advanced video options locked away or something?
That's why there was no fov slider etc?

Doom is also a different game than Rage or Wolfenstein. I doubt you'll see large open areas in Doom so maybe texture pop ins wouldn't be as bad?
