If only their games were half as good as their movies.

Overwatch is pretty much the most polished MP FPS I've seen in a long while. You and others might not enjoy the gameplay and that's fine of course. But it's a solid, well-made, good game... especially in relation to the other MP FPS stuff out there, at their launches.

Nobody is doubting their polish, but that's about the only thing Blizzard ever brings to the table these days.

Copy what's already out there, dumb it down, polish, add blizzard logo, polish some more, profit.

/yawn

Goal posts on wheels. Now it's not that it's bad but that it's not original.
Other than just the very base gameplay of TF2, what is it copying?

Name a more unique MP FPS. It's not easy to do considering most are at least 3 or 5 sequels in.

65% of Twitch viewing time split between four games.

I guessed DOTA, LOL, and CS:GO, but didn't think Hearthstone would have made the list. I just assumed it was Minecraft.

Guy at work, who must be 23 or so... Watches Hearthstone all day.
I'm not one to pooh-pooh watching video games, but watching a card game video game? That's into the realm of whyyyyy for me.

I really hate Hanzo in the game. His enemies have a larger hitbox than when you play a different character so he hardly ever misses. Hope they will change this.

Really? Got a link?

Damn you beat me to my edit.
But yeah that does show other characters. That's pretty damn weird.

But it is more like the arrow has a bigger hitbox.
Effectively it seems just like the enemy does though.

Interesting.
I wish I could try it out with other characters right now though.

Took me a little longer to realize 8 + 5 = 313 is wrong.
Nope

Not sure if "nope" means "yes this problem is wrong" or "no, you're wrong". So for clarification:

8 + 5 = 13
8 - 5 = 3
concatenate: 13, 3

The idea that drops were tuned "around" the AH's was just another batshit fan theory. It was perfectly payable it just took time... more time than people were willing to put in. Time and impatience is what prompted people to consider AH purchases as "necessary to progression" which is just completely stupid. So... the real "problem with the AH" was if you used it you basically eliminated any actual reason to play the game and completely threw your loot distribution curve out of whack. It was perfectly playable but people who are impatient ruined their own experience bypassing literally the only reward the game has. Sure, the game needed to distribute set/unique items better, but the AH wasn't causing those problems.


First, LOL at that slip-up.

Second, the stuff you go on to describe, is by design. Stuff took longer to drop by design so that you would be tempted to use the auction house. It wasn't a "batshit fan theory" it was reality... a reality you go on to describe in your effort to disprove it. It was a moronic idea they inflicted on their own game, how can you blame the players?

So does this game have any longevity like mod support? I know about the SnapMap stuff, but that doesn't seem very robust.

Games are never made for longevity unless they are open-source .. and then the branches get so distract no community will follow.

What the balls are you talking about? He's referring to games like the Half-Life series and Quake which had active communities for decades because of their mod support.

I was referring to current generation.

Ah so like Minecraft, Fallout 4, Cities: Skylines for example.
What are some open source games?

Are FPS games now considered MOBA's? I don't understand this.

It's like how Deus Ex is a FPS with RPG elements.

[...]

i hate when people say this... Deus Ex is not an RPG, and there's no such thing as "RPG elements"

you google this and see stupid sites like Giant Bomb actually make it a thing, but it's these silly game reviewers that really coined the term and not real game designers

a Role Playing Game must conform to all of the rules mentioned here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing_game

what a turd boat
this is the silliest semantic thing I've heard this year and I work with mad nerds, congrats

Edit: with that said, if you like the gameplay and speed of Halo with the unlocks and loadouts of Call of Duty, you'll enjoy this. It's mostly bland though.

This is how "fast" Halo was: https://youtu.be/z1c7eEW8cMQ?t=4m55s

And for contrast, this is Doom: https://youtu.be/anrvBD4aTGY

Am I missing something here? Did I and Nvidia get a special, extra fast version of Doom or something? Because Halo looks completely glacial compared to what I've been playing this evening.

From the video's description:
"This gameplay is from a PC running Vulkan on a Titan X at 120 FOV - with the player's personal upgrades and rune perks set for advanced speed and movement capabilities."

It'd be a little more fair to compare the newest Halo to Doom without the speed upgrades and with an equivalent FOV.
But still, it's kind of a dumb comparison.

I was wondering that. "Kites"? Is that trying to be racist and failing? I don't even know what to say there.

I'm pretty sure that was just a flippant suggestion for a new hobby and not a scene from Porky's.

My guess is that it was a goofy way of spelling "kiddies".
Since he wrote "console kites".

Her M2 passes through barriers, which is nice against Reinhardts and Winstons.

Damn, I didn't know this, that's pretty awesome. Usually I try to get the whole team to blast away at that Reinhardt shield to break it down quick but having a Symmetra able to go through it with her slow orbs would be pretty useful. Especially when he's using it to shield a bastion or other squishies.

Edit: Actually both her M1 and M2 go through shields, pretty neat.

whats the point in finding a cheat that is causing misery to all who play properly and then give them a 14day ban, should be permanent!

Not sure if your post isn't clear or if you're confused... but these are permanent bans, it's Ubi that does the 14 day crap.

Also, do you like exploring? So do I! However, you'd better not finish a session exploring, because you lose your loot. You need to finish on a battle. Did you clear the level of all enemies and are now secret hunting? Better not need to quit before you finish, because there's no way to save.

Holy shit that is fucking retarded. What moron at id came up with this horseshit??

Basically you need to start the next area/encounter for the save to kick off right? Yeah I hate that shit.

To differentiate it from regular "sports" without the 'e'.

A sport requires a modicum of physical effort at the very least. Why not call it what it is? Pro-Gaming. If gaming is a sport than so is watching TV.

Let's say I'm fine with your definition... however this is an "esport" not a "sport".
You can count the letters if you'd like. Those are different words.
