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.

News Comments > "One-Trick" Overwatch Player Bans?

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.


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.

Key reselling sites wouldn't exist if not for the devs own actions with greed and regional pricing. If they start being fair sites like G2A will disappear.

And if you sell your game for 10ct in Russia when it costs 10Ä in EU2 and EU1, well then sorry to say that, that's 100% your own fault. And I don't see why I should pay 10Ä for something that costs 10ct a click away...

So what do you propose? Cease all production on AAA games and all Devs start aiming for the <$10 game market? Or that people in poorer countries with lower GDP per capita start paying exorbitant prices for games?

I don't deny climate change. I welcome it. I roll coal in my Hummer every chance I get because I bought a house 20 miles inland that I expect to be beachfront property when I retire in 30 years.

Wouldn't that just mean in < 31 years your house will be underwater?

I will not spend $3500USD for a 60hz monitor..

It's not a gaming monitor. It's a premium monitor for graphics work or any profession where the accuracy of the color space is important. Haven't seen this OLED one in action but the regular Dell Ultrasharps with premier color look fantastic. Total overkill if you're just using it for gaming/media though.
