That actually looks cool, if not like a Tochlight spinoff.

For someone who doesnt know, what if any advantages are there to playing the game if others have been able to cheat/dupe without repercussions til this point?

I swear to God - more companies had an Alien license and started working on Alien games than the supercute prom queen had dates in the last 3 years. Uncountable! WOW!

The Alien license must come with a happy meal! "Want some fries and an Alien license with your burger?"

Reminds me of anything Warhammer.
There seems to be a new Warhammer game every other week, and almost none of them are even remotely decent.

Oh it is pure congestion for sure.
But, talking to friends with name brand earbuds, they don't have the dropping of audio issues I do.

friends have:

- apple earbuds
- Bose
- Sony

One thing I noticed with those wireless earbuds which look like the Monoprice ones at that link is that they have a lot of dropped audio in crowded areas.

I tried out a different gym last Saturday, and it's way more packed than my regular one, and every song I played from my phone (4 feet away) was broken up badly.

If you use your earbuds in highly congested areas, I will suggest making sure that is an angle you look for in a review. I don't mean 5 people within 30 yards either, I was around 100 people in that a 30yards radius

I really wish there were a new MMORPG to come on the scene and be good enough to garner a strong following.
I love the idea of a long-term character and thousands of others.. but that doesnt exist any longer it seems.

Without knowing a thing, had you asked me how many players/ships per instanced area, and that area be something like.. Ogrimmar in old WoW, I'd have said 750.

I get the FCC wanting to push for higher upload speeds, but really, both sides miss the point (according to the article), we should have minimum speeds that the ISPs have to meet based on tiers.

NN was never a good idea in the way it was implemented. In the end, by axing it, it took Pai out of the position of person in charge of internet oversight. If they keep it status quo, the big bad Pai (who kids were told to hate), ends up being in charge of the FCC which is in charge of the internet.

What whiny reddit liberal moron wrote that part? Good lord, the uninformed are so loud

I really think the Ground War maps are way larger than the current border allows for, just wish I could test that theory. Also, I'd love to see those maps expanded (if true) and then a Rush mode put in with a higher player count (64 vs 64). Along with that, a higher TTK, just a bit higher would be fine.

I realize I am asking for BF4 again, I am okay with that. No, I lost my BF account to some russian troll who stole my account before 2FA was available. I am not rebuying BF4 and releveling up everything

That GPU comparison makes me think of an idea

I'd love to see something like:

- top 3 AMD CPUs from 2012
- top 3 Intel CPUs from 2012
- mix in the same few video cards and benchmark 2012s major games on those rigs. Say 1080p since it was common then.

Then go a cpu and/or a GPU generation up, and do it again with the relevant new games. See if collectively we're getting more FPS with games as time goes on.

If in 2012 I was getting 80FPS on average across 6 similar games with "rig X" and I build a new version of "rig X" in 2020, I want to see 90+ FPS to make me happy about performance progress in my hobby.

Does any of this make any sense?

I think what they are doing is awesome, and I hope it pans out.

What's the alternative, I get to point and laugh and be right and win...what exactly? I'd rather this game start something new than to flop.

It probably has the most immediate positive feedback system, and the game plays "clean", I just got bored of it after all these years.

Of course there are some things that bugged me, like Rein being a less than useful tank who has a ultimate that gets interrupted far too often. Still underpowered or not correctly built heroes, with so many shields in the game, the lack of a shieldbuster hero (no, junkrat doesnt count, I mean a real shield buster or someone that makes tanks have to move).
