I miss Rogue Spear. Even with the shit netcode.

Anyway, I couldn't get into this game at all. The gunplay and movement felt way too clunky. It also has none of the charm possessed of the older games.

I dunno. I think it's a good game. Best value for a survival game IMO. What I don't like is the rubberbanding effect when fighting dinos.

I really don't see the problem. The release is a month away - isn't the game pretty much finished at this point? You're getting the same game buying it now.

Well, you don't see many Mario Kart style racers on PC so there's definitely a niche there. Whether it needed to be filled with an unabashed lazy clone, well that's a whole other question.

Still don't get why AMD is so hung up on HBM2... considering no benchmark showed any benefit of it.

As a mini-ITX user, I'm hoping HBM gives us smaller graphics cards like they're saying. The only current gen enthusiast class cards that would fit in my case were reference cards or an EVGA 1070/80 and they're only going to get longer and fatter with GDDR.

At this rate, I should expect the High Elves in 2018, if ever. I don't think CA is up for adding a whole new continent to the campaign map.

"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.

"...134 new twisted, tentacle-packed cards..."

Couldn't tell with all the duplicates I've been getting. I literally have 20 possessed villagers.

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.
