"gearbox has writers?"

are you fucking kidding me?

this is either a pithy troll attempt, or you legitimately don't know what you're talking about. I'm guessing the latter.

Battleborn is so far the funniest game I've played since Portal 2. Totally unexpected. It's not all AAA-grade comedy, but a big chunk of it is, and the shit that characters say in MP just makes me start crying it's so good. That's probably the most noticeable thing coming from BattleBorn to Overwatch... Overwatch is fucking dry and boring and tries to take itself seriously... I'd much rather hear my character taunt the enemy with "Public school student!" instead of "The reckoning is here". BARF.

Although speaking of funny games, the mini game where you catapult portal-style personality cores in valve's "The Lab" demo for the vive is also really funny, with a cameo from Justin Roiland no less!

I just hope that the writer in this story will have the freedom to keep up this irreverant tone with the new job on offer..

There's no accounting for taste. There are people out there that actually like the Star Wars prequels and Community's 4th season.

I'm with you man. I love Battleborn's humor and the character designs are better than Overwatch IMO. Tracer's accent is beyond irritating. Blizzard just nailed it with the more mainstream appeal.

"Blizzard just nailed it with the more mainstream appeal." That's the funny thing about you guys here on Blues News.

It's as if you guys are just about the indie stuff or cheering on for the little guys. And yet if in a parallel universe where Battleborn and Overwatch has their userbase numbers reversed, there wouldn't be even any mention of Blizzard.

I'm not seeing you guys lob snide comments on how League of Legends continues to completely trounce Heroes of the Storm in playerbase and viewership on Twitch and tourneys.

The funny thing is that gameplaywise and mechanics-wise, the two games couldn't be more different from each other. They aren't even competing in the same space. If anything Overwatch is competing against the Team Fortress and Dirty Bomb franchises. It had no intention whatsoever of going up against Battleborn.

Battleborn just happened to be an innocent bystander-type casualty.

Well, by mainstream appeal I meant the character designs I actually prefer Overwatch gameplay-wise, but Battleborn's universe is more interesting. Blizzard always plays it safe when it comes to their art and for good reason apparently.

Because they're no longer following GRRM's shitty drag-on-forever storylines.

LOL. I groaned too when GRRM introduced Young Griff, the Greyjoy bros, and the Martell family, but the show is starting to feel very generic... a lot like the show's version of Euron Grejoy.

Game is great. Sadly there are some professional reviewers with a stick up their ass over it and review bombing it(see IGN's Rowan Kaiser and his immense butthurt over TB) along with the general pro-reviewer butthurt of being replaced by steam reviewers. And then there's the actual reviews from people who play the game and love it.

Considering IGN's demographic, the score is probably spot on.

Remember kids, making light of murder, assassination, and widow making as you shoot people in the face is OK, but a pose featuring someone's clothed backside is "negative representation" and "offensive".

Also, what kind of assassin puts on high heels and has an feminine walk? Fixnowblizz!

Sadly it seems like most of Kevin Smith's work has disappointed since he made the move to full 'wake and bake' mode. Sad decline of someone who is very gifted...

Yeah... :/

I also didn't get this transition to horror movies. Zack and Miri was his last movie I watched. I wonder how Mallrats 2 and Clerks 3 are going to turn out.

Well, atleast Elizabeth Banks' career is finally taking off. I always thought she was really talented.

Happy to see D2 get some love, but not a fan of the Necro's visual look. Looks like a metalhead who's way past his prime and I'd also ditch the scythe.

Yeah, it's scummy, but the consumer has so much power in Steam (the fact that you can even research price history is more evidence) and digital games in general that this should not much of an issue for anyone really.

I think the most recent Total War games get a lot more flak than they deserve. I've only rarely encountered any serious bugs at launch, and certainly no more than I've found in other titles. As for them playing the same, each iteration has always brought something new to the game mechanics. Napoleon adding unit replenishment was huge. Shogun's skill trees were great, and expanded upon with every game since. Regional mechanics in Rome 2 made a lot more sense than every individual province being independently wealthy or poor, and Attila's horde mechanic has been a fun way to capture the feel of roving nations. I'm betting Orcs will use this for sure.

In general, I've liked every game, and I suspect the people loudly declaring that anything that came after Medieval 2 was garbage are basing that declaration more on nostalgia than anything.

Yeah, I kind of agree. I've enjoyed all of them to a certain extent. Empire is actually my favorite game. I only wish CA had that kind of ambition for all their later games. If they aren't willing or are not able, they could at least bring back the personality/atmosphere of the earlier games. Medieval 1 hands down owns Medieval 2 in that department. I also hate the new skill system from Shogun 2 - it makes all the generals feel like generic clones. Plus the horde system in Atilla is straight out of Barbarian Invasion.

Anyways, NOBODY is hyped for the new TW game. It's because CA doesn't make new and exciting games anymore - more like (which Warhammer just reeks of) competent reskins.

The game won't be playable out of the box without mods anyway. Why preorder?

Like Atilla, I'll wait until it's inevitably on sale for $5 on Steam.

I have TWC too here in KCMO. The people across the street have Google Fiber. So close, yet so far away...

Anyway, I'd rather just pay directly to subscribers of my choosing (with YT getting a cut) than find out that half of it is just going to PewDiePie.

I actually listen to Colin Cowherd on a daily basis (I like his NFL takes), but yeah, he's definitely out of his element talking about e-sports. His "Spencer" bit was pretty cringe-worthy.

I'm a longtime Diablo 3 basher, but... this game has grown on me since I leveled a Crusader to 70 to get the Malthael mount.

A few things:
-The campaign is absolutely atrocious. The story and dialogue should be held up as a case study on how NOT to write in colleges everywhere.
-All the weapons feel the same and act as mere DPS placeholders. That said, Blizz DID finally allow the monk to actually wield his weapons.
-Some of the top abilities are plain stupid looking. Wrath of the Berserker (Barb should just be a little bigger and glow), Akarat's Champion (just glow), STEED CHARGE (take it out completely) for fuck's sake.
-Account bound items kills trading and any sense of community, which is funny because D3 is always online.

The good:
-The campaign left a bitter taste, but I LOVE ADVENTURE MODE and RIFTS. The whole end game completely avoids having to replay the radioactive campaign.
-Transmogs and Kanai's Cube legendary powers are great.
-The free respecs and quick change skills WORK wonderfully for D3's endgame.
-I'm actually having as much fun with D3 as I did with D2. In retrospect, constant Pindle runs don't seem like much of an endgame to me anymore.

So... I still think D1 had the best atmosphere and horror by far. D2 had the best game from the ground floor. D3 has the best endgame. Consider me a convert and born again Blizz fanboi. Hallelujah.

From the article: Dota 2ís competitor and top MOBA, League of Legends, however, makes about $123 million a month as of January.

Jesus. Also, some shitty Korean FPS (Crossfire) makes even more than that.

Congratulations to EG, but I wish they had spread the prize pool a little more. Is it really necessary for 1st place to get over 100x more in prize money than last place? Teams should get something for at least making the tournament...

Why not take the higher paying job?

You also get a 50% pension for life with that federal job... right? That should be a pretty large factor.

Really? I think you're thinking of military and police. Most civilian feds get a 1% monthly annuity on highest 3 years pay that's $12,000/yr for a person making $100,000) plus whatever you put into your TSP (401k equivalent). Richer than what you get at your average company, but the main draws are probably the health benefits and job security - things which don't exactly attract the best people.

It's understood that the government underpays - especially for top talent. What generally happens is that top talent begin their careers in government to net lucrative private gigs later on (see federal prosecutors).
