"Lost their balls", not really, they just straight up "lost" to Trump. Asking a political party to sit around for the next 4-8 years and not wield power that they hold isn't terribly realistic. Most of these people have to answer to their constituents and whatever corporate interests put them there.

I guess they could stage some sort of bizarre impeachment scenario though on what grounds, I have no idea. Then we'll get....President Pence. I'm not sure people are being careful about they wish for here

I guess that's expected from GOP politicians; only those at the end of their careers can truly say what they think. I guess I'm just more disappointed by the blind partisanship of the conservative voters. I.e. Beaver's complete lack of self awareness and ironic hypocrisy would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad.

It really feels like they are religious fanatics, doesnt it? And when you talk to them, its even more obvious. Facts dont count for them. Their hypocrisy is astounding, even more so how they can ignore it and still claim they are in the right. Some of them are so crazy and illogical that I am really scared of them.

These people prove that the saying "The path to hell is paved with good intentions", is absolutely true.

That's a perfect description of the right. Religious indoctrination, ignoring facts in favor of faith and dogma is exactly how the conservative voter base conditions their children. I mean, you have people believing that the Earth is 5000 years old, denying fossil evidence and evolution; it's not a long stretch for them to deny all evidence and believe the bullshit coming out of Trump's mouth.
Thanks for confirming my points. Facts dont matter, you cant argue with them, because they will just twist everything to their liking. And thats why I dont argue with people like you anymore. Its literally useless and seems to make you people tick out even more, because truth and facts are triggering you...

Hey, I'm willing to talk. But if you're so scared and scarred of a little discussion that you're preemptively dismissive, then you're the one who's triggered. Keep on hiding behind these supposed "facts" of yours.

Edit: Here's a free fact for you Beaver: Trump erroneously tries to blame a 2008 UK embassy move on Obama. Now tell me Beaver, does the facts point to Trump being a liar or just a dumbass? You decide.

Not really, Trump basically stole the nomination and bulled his way into the presidency. The Conservative establishment fought him every step of the way until it was too late to do anything. Trump essentially hijacked the Republican party and made utter fools of the Dems as well.

The ESA rebuking anyone is pretty amusing stuff though. The industry's shill service that defends gambling sold to minors is upset on moral grounds hahaha.

The conservative establishment fought him yes, but the moment he became the GOP nominee the conservatives lost their balls and sucked up. You have more sycophants like Christie than people like McCain. The fact that the majority of conservatives stoop so low as to continually support Trump is what's sad.

It's so sad that even the Catholic Church and the Pope is a beacon of free thought and scientific progress compared to some religious groups in the US.

Nice try, but won't happen. People are so brainwashed that Trump is crazy that they can't see all the good he's doing. Keep repeating leftist garbage.

You don't need to be brainwashed. All you need to do is read Trump's twitter and you'll realize that the guy's a unhinged, narcissistic, racist, ignorant, lying, sexist, hypocritical fuckwad. The fact that conservatives stooped so low to support him is what's sad for America.

Lots of similar colours at a glance... they need to run home/away colours like real sport teams so itís easily noticeable which hero is on which team.

A thin boarder of red/blue isnít enough from a spectator perspective.

They do have home and away skins.

Yeah, with no thanks to Blizzard. Their games would be a million times better if they permitted and encouraged mods to begin with. Bethsoft is living proof of that.

Anyway, nice map if a little bland in the color department.

Uh wtf are you talking about? Blizzard's mod support for SC1/2 and Warcraft 3 has been stellar.

None of that matters, the stat is an enormous feather in their cap that proves they're obliterating everything else on PC. At this point they're close to beating Call of Duty console versions during launch week records... Crazy.

They're beating everything on *Steam*. League of Legends for example, has over 7 million concurrent users.

I wonder if this game will have any sort of post-launch DLC that they charge money for. Call me a literalist, but if you charge $14.99 for content not included in the original vanilla game... that's a fucking microtransaction.


Yeah sure, let's ignore the entire history of PC gaming and equate expansions with microtransactions.

Still boring as fuck really, overwatch is just a really oversimplified multiplayer shooter that anyone who is old has played before and played better.

It really exists only because it was released by blizzard and unto the cult of bliz fans. The game is just very boring over time. It just can't hold a candle to past fps games esp if you grew up on them in the 90's.

Overwatch is just like modern blizzard - all flash, no substance.

Speaking as someone who's been playing FPSes since the original Wolfenstein came out, you are objectively wrong. Name one FPS from the 90s that had melee tanks with AOE shields, pudge hooks, time rewinds, etc. I asked you this before but you just flat out ignored it because mechanics like this simply didn't exist back in the day.

It's fine if you don't like the game, but at this point your ignorant ramblings are just pathetic.

You bought this game with 60 dollars, but if you play a hero we don't want you to play, we'll ban you. Is that it? Who gives a shit which character the guy plays??

Teamwork is important and should be considered when making your hero selections

So if everybody wants you to play fucking Widowmaker, you better play Widowmaker? Even if you suck at it? Even if you only have fun playing Torbjorn? That's fucking bullshit.


Not like that at all. The people in question were essentially afking or trolling if someone else took their hero. Don't be a giant dick and you won't get banned for one-tricking.

War of the Chosen is very buggy for me. I've had animations stop, dead bodies stand up, objectives not complete despite doing them (this one is annoying), and sometimes the camera stops following whomever is moving. It's starting to annoy me.

That sucks, although I do feel better now about holding off on buying this. I'll definitely get War of the Chosen eventually but I've seen quite a few bug complaints about it. Those of us who haven't jumped in yet can wait for a few patches.

Thanks, early adopters!

Just finished a Classic/Bronzeman run, and aside from two crash to desktops, I haven't experienced any of those issues.

The game runs much smoother and loads way faster than vanilla XCOM 2, and the additional content is fantastic.

Only a handful of studios I miss, Bullfrog, Origin (or maybe this was a good thing to go), Looking Glass Technologies and Black Isle sits #1 right at the top of that list.

I'm surprised that Firaxis made it this far (yeah yeah, CIV is a cashcow). Out of all those innovative / groundbreaking games of the 96-99 gaming golden era, I'm glad to be playing XCOM2 by some of the awesome people that made my favorite strat ever - Alpha Centauri.

I thought Brian Reynolds and most of the team behind SMAC left Firaxis long ago? Did some of the SMAC team go on to make XCOM?

Fix competitive gameplay, and fix Quickplay matchmaking. Stop putting me in matches with people that aren't at my skill level. Give me a key to press to communicate an enemy's position to my team, so I can stop feeling helpless when I'm on a team with no one in voice chat.

wtf...

I think it's as good as it's going to get.
Then I guess I'm a better game designer than Blizzard.

How much of a SR discrepancy do you get?

Henry Dorsett wrote on Jul 26, 2017, 11:45:
How about we punish people who admit to not putting their best effort into winning in ranked matches? If you want to play casually, go play Quick Play. If you can't play with decent people in Quick Play and still want to play casually, then, well, too bad. Ranked matches in any game should be reserved for people whose driving desire is to win, not to have fun fucking around.

What if you're having a bad night, get tilted, play poorly and come back the next day to find that you're suspended?

I get what you're saying, but "not putting their best effort" is an incredibly vague reason for punishing someone.

For me, the primary reason I no longer care for Blizzard is this, 3 most recent things Blizzard made

Overwatch - online PVP with grind
Hearthstone - online PVP with grind
Heroes of the Storm - online PVP with grind

;(

It's like.. they just rehash a single gameplay loop forever now.. bah

As opposed to old Blizzard, who made Diablo and WoW, which had even more grind?

Also there is no grind in Overwatch. All characters and maps are unlocked at the get go. If you want to go for useless things like skins, that's your own damn problem.

Imagine if all of World of Warcraft was Alterac Valley. That about sums up Overwatch. Unless Blizzard introduces a single player story campaign, the game will remain a grindy cash-shop centric FPS MOBA.

That's stupid. Alterac Valley is only one map. And WOW doesn't have 20+ classes. And WOW is not a fps.

And it's ironic that a MMO player is complaining that a fps shooter is grindy.

I'm kind of curious, I want to find some real numbers on the total number of Wasteland 2 sales... supposedly the game sold over 400,000 copies on Steam alone? That's surprising, and if true, that makes the Wasteland 3 investment more appealing, I guess.

Well, according to Steamspy there's >650K owners of Wasteland 2 on steam. http://steamspy.com/app/240760
