The game is kinda fun. I enjoy playing it with friends. I was never a huge CS fan, so it's hard to get super interested in it. I hate the crouch and shoot models of FPS's. Punishes movement a little too much.

But with all that, my biggest problem is the length of the games. Takes SO LONG to play a single match. For a decently competitive match, it takes about 40-45 minutes.

Really wish they would have added a shorter mode. Think Overwatch...Comp matches have 2 sides of the map on escort objectives. But quickplay has 1 side. Would be nice to see a 'quickplay' mode that is maybe first to 7 or 9, instead of 13.

While I didn't have any problems with the old format, the new bulleted format is fine too. But like someone else said, it doesn't seem like I can scan them as fast.

Maybe remove the space between each header and it's first bullet?

Maybe it will take some time to get used to....but I agree with some of the others...something looks off. Too many different font sizes? Headers look too big compared to paragraph text, and links are bigger than quotes? I dont know. The article/story formatting could use some tweaking. And the side bar is oddly too wide. Being responsive, if I resize my browser to about half my screen (1920x1080 on a 24") it looks like a more normal size.

I don't play Fortnite (I've tried it, but I suck at building), but put your opinions aside...This is a pretty cool event. They've gone outside the box, IMO, and have drawn attention, tons of press, lots of theories, etc. I'm entertained by it and am looking forward to see what they reveal.

I can see a rare occasion when sub-only streams may occur. Maybe a streamer wants to reward their subs. But I agree with what someone else said, it should only be for original content (IRL, creative, etc.).

Otherwise, I see it actually hurting a streamer. They get lots of donations/tips/bits from non-subs.

I got super excited for a second -- a fresh Rocket Arena! I played RA2 so much back in the day it could've been a fulltime job.

This looks interesting, but it's definitely not the Rocket Arena I was hoping for.

Hah! I was SO WISHING this was going to be like a modern Q2RA2. I lived in that game/mod. I miss it so much in today's games.

Please someone explain how a douchebag like him gets so popular.
I just dont get it. Yeah, hes pretty good at playing (there are better still), but hearing him speak makes me lose hope in humanity.
There are dozens, if not hundreds of streamers who are much more entertaining than him.

I don't think he or his channel is that bad. I'm not a big fan and I'm not a subscriber, but I do watch his channel when my other favorite streamers are offline. I know he's had some incidents in the past, but who hasn't. To me, it looks like he's grown up. He is respectful, runs a respectful channel, and does a good job at it. He was in the right place at the right time, and people wanna hate on him for that. Fortnite is what it is. So a lot of kids play it. His fan base is a lot of kids. Big deal?

What - no 'Top Gun' references? No one wondering if the shirtless beach volleyball game is included or will be dlc? No one asking if the voiceovers will include iconic lines like 'Talk to me Goose' or 'You could be my wingman anytime '???? Shame.

On a serious note, I was wondering - what about the F-14 specifically required 2 pilots while most other fighters only needed one?

Actually, I think they did. They showed an F-14 in a flat spin in one cut.

Mercy is the most accessible direct healer. She is the easiest to play healer that the majority of players can relate to and feel effective. Ana is a direct healer but much more difficult to play for most people. Moira is less direct and more difficult. I keep seeing the argument that mercy is the most played character because she is OP. For the casual player, I just dont buy this theory. She's the most played because she is the most accessible.

I don't mind this. I tried PUBG, but couldn't get the hang of it. I love Fortnite BR.

At least Paladins is doing something no one else has done in a BG yet...classes. Could be interesting.

Slashdot turns 20! And its last visitor was in 2014.

Seriously tho. I remember when almost every article would get over 1,000 comments. Now they are lucky to break 50 or 100. Guessing this is due to Reddit.

I think a large part of it is that most people only rarely need a contractor of this sort. They haven't established a process of finding the right person for the job. They don't know where to look. Often times, like with Blue's experience, they rely on a personal recommendation.

But unless that personal recommendation is from someone who has used the contractor two dozen times, or from someone who knows their shit with regards to the work being done, it doesn't actually mean much. Even a shitty contractor can do a fantastic job once in a while. So if my buddy recommends me someone who they used one time, I'm not giving that a lot of weight. Their good job they did could easily just be a fluke.

I'm not even sure I'd know what to do to get a good contractor. Most of the people I used in the past are retired now, because I knew them through my grandfather who was a Business Manager at a trade union. These days there's a lot of resources for finding good contractors online, but also a lot of noise, and paid ratings etc.

You bring up good points, and I agree. In my case, I interviewed (they think it's a sales pitch...I think think its an interview) 5 of the biggest contractors in town. Some of these are national chains. The problem in my case was the large regional company just turned around and subcontracted the job to Joe SixPack who was responsible for no-shows, bad communication, not honoring contract, among faulty install, bad repair, etc. (there were legal issues, blah blah, its all been settled).

In my opinion, the main problem with the contractor industry is business management. I honestly believe most of these folks are skilled craftsmen who know what they are doing (ok, majority maybe). But they simply don't know how to run a business.

This is a rhetorical thinking out loud thought, but why do so many people have problems with contractors? We had an awful experience with a siding and window contractor. And it seems no matter who you talk to, if they've dealt with a contractor, they've had a bad contractor experience. Is it the nature of the business? Or rather, how they do business? Do they try to juggle too much? Is it an intelligence thing?
It seems like if you are honest, diligent, and skilled enough you could make a KILLING as a contractor because the bar is set so low by all the bad ones out there.

Have they said anything about different game play modes yet?

I desperately want to see Rocket Arena and CTF. I'm sure they will have mod support.

Really? All credibility lost.

Best Audio: Inside

I don't have a big problem with this, but Battlefield I had MUCH better audio than Inside. I just bought Inside last week and played through it twice. Audio is good...but not as good and fine tuned as BF1.

Dirty Bomb is one of those games I love to play. I don't play it often, but its always a game I keep going back to.

I think it has some of the best feel of a FPS that I've played. The combat and weapons just feel really good. I hope they can make it work. It definitely has its issues. Its taken them long enough just to add casual match making so you can play on the same team with your friends. Oh wait, that feature still isnt in.
