News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda in March
51. Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda in March Jan 5, 2017, 18:33 Fion
 
Yea the one thing that bugs me is all the races are the same. All these people from various races of the Milky Way hop a big ass ship based on the design of the Citadel and this new galaxy - bigger than our own - has no new races?

Oh my mistake, a simple google search reveals there's one new race. Unless the others are like super secret.

Also this story is no longer about earth, so why cant I play a different species than human this time?

The combat seems.. ok. I see a bit of 'push a button & something cool happens' syndrome going on. I get it, ME is like 70% shooter but I'd much rather see improved tactical combat.

I'm still looking forward to the game, I hope it improves significantly over the failings of the original (especially ME3 which was weak all around for the most part). Also can we get some fucking space battles that aren't a 20 minute movie this time? PLEASE?!

News Comments > Overwatch Roadhog Nerfs Incoming

Yea they really need to do something to break up the current meta. It's almost as bad as early on in the games release when every pro team ran 2 Winston, 2 Tracer & 2 Lucio lol.

I expected this nerf but I gotta say, I'm surprised there aren't Symmetra nerfs mentioned anywhere. I mean her photon beam out-DPS's most the actual DPS heroes and has the added benefit of being auto-hit. I've seen this 100 HP/100 Shield Support character solo-take down Raging Winston.

How does Witcher 3 not win Game Within A Game? I mean we're comparing tennis & golf mini-games with GWENT!

I haven't read it yet but many of us Overwatch fans already knew that Zarya was gay.

'Star in a Jar' is clickbait. The Planck Stellerator isn't producing more energy than its consuming yet. What works is the complex magnetic field that contains the plasma. Still a long way to go before it's generating a fusion reaction.

And happy Birthday Doom! You changed my life in many ways as well. I bought my first sound card specifically for this game and I still remember the days of setting at my makeshift computer desk, headphones on, screaming like Schwarzenegger as I spun up my chaingun to take down a horde of demonic foes on my struggling 386.

If netflix' movie selection is mediocre. Amazon Prime's is downright terrible. Only movies you can find on there that don't come with an added price tag are last years AAA flops & b-movies from the '2/$5' bin.

As I understand it - didn't play it myself - it was fun but buggy and with serious performance issues. Hopefully that's the purpose of the delay.

I agree Blue, in the age of content on demand on your schedule, it's a little weird feeling to have to wait a week for each new ep. I suppose on the bright side it gives time for theories to simmer before being absolutely shattered or confirmed. :p

News Comments > On Overwatch Season 3 Placement
2. Re: On Overwatch Season 3 Placement Dec 2, 2016, 14:17 Fion
 
It's not like Blizz has never done ranked gameplay before in one of their games, but they keep fucking it up with Overwatch. Really weird.

I haven't started my placement but has anyone noticed if they fixed the whole issue of losing more points in a loss than you gain in a win? That was a huge problem last season (though apparently not for everyone) and me and the dozen odd people who I had in my friends list playing quit during season 2 because it became impossible to advance in rank because you needed 4-6 wins to get back the points you lose from two losses.

News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer
6. Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer Dec 2, 2016, 14:03 Fion
 
Ok am I the only one who wonders why this new galaxy - and the planet in the trailer - seems to be populated by Humans, Asari, Krogan & Turians? This is a new galaxy with a few big ships carrying refugees from the Milky Way and all the planets & stations are populated by... the above Milky Way races? Is it lazy development or am I missing something?

A quick google search reveals that the game features just a single new race native to andromeda. It's an entirely new galaxy so the only Milky Way races in the game should be the ones on the either the Arcs or your ship! Just smacks of lazy development trying to squeeze out a cash-grab. I hope I'm wrong.

I agree, Walking Dead (S1 especially). I played the first few eps of GoT, started interesting but quickly went nowhere. Surprisingly Tales from the Borderlands is a lot of fun as well.

Holy shit awesome! I also skipped the Batman one as I'm not a fan but I did hear it was good.

As much as I am now excited for a Telltale GotG game, I wish they'd put someone back on Wolf Among Us, I want a season 2 for that game SO BAD!

Sweet, I haven't purchased yet because I have a lot of RPGs I'm playing atm after finally playing through Shadowrun Hong Kong after buying it over the summer sale and the - amazing - Divinity: Original Sin (enhanced ed) after I put off purchasing it for way to long. That and Skyrim SE is out too and I've found myself quite enjoying a romp through the game and discovering new things even with my 600+ hours played on the original over the years.

TTP has its ups and its downs. Does it contain protections for american workers? Yes. Does it also let corporations run their own international court system that supersedes governmental authority or law? Yes.

I didn't vote for the guy but I have the strangest feeling his presidency might be more pro-working class than the last 6 presidents combined. Granted I'm not keen on all the bush-era neocons he seems to be surrounding himself with. Secretary of State John Bolton or Newt Gingrich? Treasury Secretary Mnuchin (a vet of Goldman Sacks)? Yeeesh!

When I was a kid in the early 70's I had a flu so bad it nearly killed me. It lasted weeks, left me severely dehydrated from constant vomiting, I remember having the shakes, an extremely high fever, even blurry vision.

IDK if this was one of those type 1 flu viri but I can count the number of times I've gotten influenza since then and into my 40's on one hand.

The 'diablo in diablo 3' isn't like the actual game. It's a dungeon with four of Diablo's bosses.
