I couldn't believe how bad ifinity was. I know some people liked it but to me it played like a Dreamcast game in terms of visuals and gameplay mechanics of 3rd person games in that era.


The Skylanders franchise has made Activision over $3,000,000,000. Disney figured with their powerhouse IPs they'd make easy money aping that model.

Blue said he ordered a Rift (and Vive IIRC) but it has yet to ship.

PS4 is actually noisy as fuck, but my 970 with a blower fan gives it a run for its money. I got an ASUS 970 Turbo instead of ASUS 970 Strix because I have a white case and wanted the white GPU, but holy fuck is the Turbo noisy, even when idle. It completely drowns my case and cpu fans, and is probably the loudest GPU cooler I've ever owned.

RE6 disaster? It sold over five million copies... and it wasn't *that* bad. It could have been Operation Raccoon City.

Anyways Revelations was a pretty good return to form for the series and placated a lot of fans disappointed with how action-heavy RE6 was.

The downside to streaming is that the image quality is much worse - the detail I see in the darkness on a BluRay is huge, yet cable makes Game of Thrones a bunch of talking heads in black backgrounds.

Time Warner quality in my area is so horrendously bad that it's infinitely better for me to use HBO Go than actually watch or record anything.

What else is fun is how you can't even rent tons of movies via streaming services. Shit like Age of Ultron is unrentable, fucking twelve months after it was in theaters, because it is exclusive to STARZ subscription service.

What the fuck are they thinking? Not stocking their product in Redbox and not letting me rent it online is supposed to make me fucking sprint over to Best Buy and pay $25 on something I ALREADY wasn't interested enough in to see at a theater??? YEAH THAT'LL SURE STOP ME JUST PIRATING IT

Side note! Awesome now the Titan will become cheaper. Whenever new tech is released the prior generation significantly drops in price.

No, it really doesn't, unless you buy second hand. At least as far as nvidia is concerned.

Melee tanks, AOE shields, Pudge Hooks, Time Rewinds, Ultimates....why do you list those things like they are a good thing?

Because they are new and different? I don't remember uber charges or CP maps being in Team Fortress, but I can't imagine TF2 without them.

It's a pointless argument because you're arguing the game is "casual" when it really isn't. Characters like Tracer require a ton of practice and skill to be competent with.

None of the ultimates are instant kills, except maybe Tracer's sticky bomb. All the rest can be countered or avoided. Reaper's is probably the only clearly overpowered one.

It doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel and the 6v6 nature doesn't lend itself to very epic or chaotic battles, but it's fun. $40 seems like a fine price point.

Getting Democrats to show up for a midterm election could only help too.

Two years is simply too short a term for representatives.

We have really painted ourselves into a corner. The only way to fix the problem is pretty much to rebuild it from the ground up. But there isn't any reasonable way to do it.

Yeah, there is, actually. All you have to do is separate money from politics, specifically when it comes to elections and lobbying. Most politicians spend tons of their time trying to get money to win an election/reelection, which both encourages lobbying and discourages actual politicking. Meanwhile campaigns for national office are so prohibitively expensive a regular Joe doesn't have a shot in hell of getting the exposure necessary for a win.

News Comments > Overwatch Open Beta Opens
5. Re: Overwatch Open Beta Opens May 5, 2016, 11:23 PHJF
 
Played a couple hours this morning... has enormous TF2 feels, except the addition of so many more characters means jobs are way more spread out and less easily defined. Seems like it would be a hell of a job balancing things out and trying to prevent ideal team makeups from drowning out certain characters.

One thing I'm finding annoying is how many characters have similar movement speed. One of the biggest balancing factors against Heavy in TF2 is how SLOW he is to get to the front line if there is no teleporter, but the scout-type classes in Overwatch don't have much of a speed advantage; all they have is height advantages, which didn't translate to much of an advantage in the maps I saw.

Anyways it was a lot of fun so far, and I only dabbled in three or four characters.

One of the issues is communication. Blizzard titles usually don't require voice comm for casual modes, but with Overwatch, it's very difficult to win without some attempt at coordination.

Not necessarily, I think the biggest issue stems from players not knowing what each character does yet and how best to fill gaps in a team's makeup. That'll naturally improve, quickly, over time.

I hope people are paying attention to whom the publisher is... -> SEGA

Well it would have to be since SEGA owns Relic...

I don't know if Mike Judge is crying or laughing his ass off right now.

He's probably writing a sequel; strike while the iron is hot, and so forth.
