They're just getting to these games? Sonic the Hedgehog? Final Fantasy? Oregon fucking Trail???

How are these not already all in the hall of fame, if such a hall of fame already exists?

Because like almost any hall of fame they just induct a handful at a time and make a big event about it.

If they inducted all the worthy games right off the bat then they would either have to not have yearly events or start inducting essentially brand new games.

Edit: Also this particular hall of fame looks like it only started in 2015, this is only the second round of inductees (as blue pointed out ).

Wait until Q2 ends Blizzard. Your numbers are going to be drastically lower; guaranteed.

Are you saying their numbers are going to go down despite launching their first new game in 17 years? Or they're going to go down because people will leave Overwatch and everything else? What happens in the next 2 months?

No he's saying they're going to go down because they snubbed a pirate vanilla WoW server

Weren't you just arguing the other day that this is the kind of post you don't make?

I don't recall that. Feel free to quote a post where I said that.

I guess you didn't argue against it after all, but somebody pointed it out.

Although I'm liking Battleborn quite a bit more, I think I'll have enough fun in OW to warrant picking it up for 40. OW is more polished than BB, but I find BB to be more fun and have more depth. Very different kind of games.

There's also Paragon from Epic in case OW and BB don't cut it.

Wth doesn't someone make a proper Star Wars CRPG both in isometric and 3D? I'd like to see the first dealing with the Thrawn trilogy and the latter done open ended like a TES game. Want to be a bounty hunter? Cool. Want to be a Jawa and scavenge for a living? Why the hell not?

Yeah I'd kill for a proper SP RPG like that. I remember how hyped I was for Galaxies to be that in MMO form. And for a few days it really was like I was Wookie smuggler and then it quickly turned to MMO crap.

Yeah, shame on that mmo for being an mmo!

wait wut?

The point was, I want a Star Wars RPG, but there wasn't one, so I had to settle with a MMORPG instead... but the MMO elements quickly became to obnoxious to look past. It's not necessarily a criticism of Galaxies but a criticism of MMOs in general which I'm not really a fan of.
I'm assuming that you played KOTOR 1 & 2.

Definitely. But that has set characters. It'd be nice for a true CRPG where you can pick your own race, professions, skills, etc.

A separate announcement today, they are pushing back "ranked play" to post-launch. Weak.

That is disappointing considering it was in the closed beta. I think I'm at level 16 right now so I had 9 more levels to go to unlock it anyway.

But honestly the matchmaking I'm getting with a group of good players is pretty excellent even without the competitive ladder. We're being put into games with other level 15-20 and these are some intense matches. Seeing other teams utilize new strategies and having to respond to those is fun as hell. I basically didn't see Zarya at all until sometime after level 10 and that bubble shield she puts on people is pretty effective. Just like anything in the game the first few times you see it you're like, "that's OP as hell!" but then you figure out some counter strategies and iterates from there.

Balance is still whacked. Too twitchy. Too low time-to-kill. Too many one-hit-kill moves. If you're over 30, you will struggle. This is like TF2 on 'roids. It rewards twitch vs teamplay because an ADHD twitch monkey using a McCree or Soldier:76 or similar high DPS character can carry a bad team (seen this many times since Closed Beta). The pacing and time-to-kill need to be tweaked down and teamplay made more important.

This is only valid when the team isn't working as a team. Soldier and McCree by themselves are squishy garbage. I eat them for breakfast.

I hope Sanders stays in the race as an independent. It would destroy the Democratic party in the US, but I think that has to happen before we start seeing politics of the people and for the people again, instead of the bait and switch corporate show they got going now...

He won't do that. And not only that, but after he gets Clinton to agree to concede something to him and the people he champions (like minimum wage, college, tax the rich, or something along those lines), he's going to endorse her.

Wasn't really interested in your response. Just incredulous that you didn't catch the gist when he said stuff like, "maybe your definition of an age is like 5 minutes" and "change your forum handle from Slick, to Slick Hype". Usually "hype" wouldn't be a way to describe "hope it picks up".

Which modern RPG provides a framework for the Star Wars RPG you'd like to see?

Honestly that is a legitimately good question. But bearing in mind it worked well with Knight of the Old Republic 1+2. Minus the space "shooting" sections.

Give it a fallout-like treatment, make it so settlements/places of interest are planets/space locals, and the travel time between them is in a space ship. And toss in faction joining, so Empire or Rebels or Hutt faction story lines.

Or give it a Witcher treatment, and replace Geralt with a Jedi and the environment to alien planets.

But whatever comes, as an RPG is needs a crafting system. Not sure if /s or not on that idea however.

I love Geralt, and actually the character and books more than the game... But I'd also love to see an RPG that doesn't have main character done in that style, to a lesser degree that engine. Hoping Cyberpunk 2077 scratches that itch. But yeah a Star Wars game like that would be ace.

OMG what a poor shit game. Just like Doom it's yet another consolized dumbed down garbage game where everything is zoomed in and super-extra large so the console n00bs can hit shit, too, and on top of it, to make it even easier for the controller peasants, you have auto-aim aimbot skills for just about every hero. What a complete failure on the PC. The word abysmal doesn't even begin to describe it properly.

#uninstall

Phara, the rocket launcher hero, is what Doom and every shooter that's done rockets lately is missing. Watching an expert play her is old school art. That's one of 21 very distinct characters with complex ability combos and roles.

I liked the setting but I couldn't get into the gameplay.
As you guys already pointed out, going stealthy was pretty boring and felt tacked on. But I have problems with the combat gameplay too... I don't really enjoy games that make you an untouchable god and that's how the combat felt. It was the same reason I couldn't ever get into Crysis with it's invisibility, speed, and super strength. I want to be barely making it through fights, not beating up dummies who don't even have a chance to react.

I really hope it picks up, it's the most fun FPS game I've played in AGES.

Hey Slick, don't you write that about every new game that's released? Like The Division, Star Wars: Battlefront, BF4, etc. etc. etc. Hmm, maybe your definition of an age is like 5 minutes. Or maybe your attention span is really, really short.

In any case, you should change your forum handle from Slick, to Slick Hype, or something more appropriate

Never said: "I hope the Division picks up..." It sold like 10 million copies in the first week or some shit. BF4 still has more than 30,000 concurrent players 2 years after launch...

Battlefront on PC however, was less than 10,000 concurrent players after the first week.. yeah, i did hope that game picked up.

As I hope Battleborn does. If you don't think that the current 6000 concurrent players of a hot new game the day after launch isn't low, I don't know how to help you.

This can't be a good faith response can it? You actually think his point was about "hope it picks up"? ... It's plain as day that he was talking about "most fun FPS game I've played in AGES" which you do tend to say about everything.

But one player can fuck your team pretty effectively.
That's kind of what I was afraid of.
Unless you play with friends/people you know, good luck being effective or having fun in this game.

I didn't mean to give that impression. It's possible, but not probable.
Blizzard does a very good job teaching the game relatively intuitively. There are warnings at the beginning during character selection, that are map and side specific, letting you know that you're missing, damage, support, sniper, builder, etc... Also while you're playing it throws you tips on counters depending on who you died against. Objective playing is rewarded more than KDR, there is no traditional scoreboard, play-of-the-game lets you see what a clutch play looks like (and they've tweaked it considerably over the betas). You can hit F1 at anytime (in game, or in menu) to see your character's abilities.

But yeah, Mei being stupid (almost purposefully so) can be a pretty big detriment (though even this was tweaked, as it is easier for your own team to poke a hole in the wall than the enemy, and Mei can cancel her wall instantly). And having someone play a role badly is just a temporary set back until you realize it. You can switch heroes whenever you want and are encouraged to as the game progresses and you realize how you need to counter and improve.

If the matchmaking uses similar algorithms to HOTS you will be crying tears of frustration before anything else really. Thankfully at least this isn't one of those games where one (or a couple) of terrible player(s) will ruin the game for everyone else.

My matchmaking was excellent today. We had a control point map that went 99-99 on the first round and nearly the same on the second. I had multiple games where the payload was 99% of the way there and we slowly pushed it back and won. I think the balance is terrible just right at the beginning, but even just at 10+ profile level it already starts getting pretty good.

But one player can fuck your team pretty effectively. The most common way is by filling an important role and then playing it terribly, causing somebody else to need to switch and therefore drop some other important role. But a more immediate and visible fuck up is a Mei who keeps using ice walls at the wrong times. You'll be taking down a very effective turret... its health is nearing 0 and you're finally about to get it... MEI WALL! from your own damn team and now the dwarf can get time to fully repair his shit.

Bastion is so easily countered. Just like any game with turrets you've gotta take those down first. You can have a sniper take him at a distance while he's distracted. You can use one of the many characters that can move invulnerable for a bit, like Repear. But the easiest way in my opinion is just to have Zenyatta put the 50% dmg orb on him and he's gone in a few seconds.
