So he donates to the GOP, so what? It doesn't mean he's pro-conservative, just anti-liberal. And there's still plenty of good reasons for that these days. I'm guessing, however, that 'thank you' to the gay community is completely tongue and cheek.

Hm. The demo just got released for Giants: Uprising. Play as an enslaved giant who breaks free and destroys everything in sight.

Sounds like Tim Sweeney!

...Holy crap I hope that game is mod-enabled. Throw in the Shrek model and GET OUTTA MY SWAMP!

Hmm. I'm not sure what to think on this. A BR V:TM, that you not only have to deal with other players [as its a BR], but AI Humans/Strike Teams of you get too rowdy to scare the living. Interesting concept. Wonder how many Disciplines are going to be added in. Or how many Clans.
Different screen effects based on differing Clans would be interesting.

Has anyone been denied the use of GW's IPs recently? Like, supposedly Blizzard way back when, but in the modern era I don't think anyone who's willing to pay the (apparently fairly modest) licensing fees gets turned down. For a long time GW clearly considered themselves a miniatures company and nothing else, and then they started taking their fiction more seriously, and it's only recently that they're paying attention any attention at all to animation and video games. They've been pushing Primaris Marines in 40K hard for the last four years, but as far as video games go I think they only feature in like one card game.

Dunno. I've never heard of any instance of GW turning a company down to make a game. Not sure how many requests they get and story ideas for games. That'd be something interesting to look into, to see what 'could' have been, though. The only other time I see them being active, is when they're chasing down IP/Copyright offenders. And yeah, they'd definitely gonna push Primaris, which seems weird because they're focusing only on ONE damn faction. Even as a Smurf player, I'd rather see more stuff in the other factions as well. Gotta spread that love around.

Mostly Negative reviews on Steam, apparently all but two factions are paid DLC, $7-10 each.

How hard is it for Warhammer/Warhammer 40k games to be good?

Look over the rest of their games. I think this might be their first attempt at something like this, maybe? All the rest of their stuff looks like either CYOA 'games'/visual novels.
GWS tends to be scatter-shot when it comes to who they allow to utilize their stuff. If THQ hadn't have sunk, they probably woulda been the 'go-to' guys that GWS would be using to adapt a majority of their stuff.

Luckily, Amber performed well and soon joined LegionFarm as a coach. She started at the company’s lowest coaching level, earning just $5 an hour, and over the course of the next few months worked her way up by putting in more than 300 hours.

How is that even legal?



"The coaches are located all over the world, from the United States to Russia. Because they are contractors, they are not required to earn the U.S. minimum wage of $7.25 per hour."

That's how.

As long as there is no in-game advantage/mechanic change/whatever... Then if people want to shell out 20$ for something flashy, fine.
Wonder how many of those that have an issue with it, chuck money at mobile-game transactions...

Actually, a skin can be a huge advantage in a competitive shooter. I think it was one of the CoD games (I can't keep track anymore) where they said that skins were merely cosmetic and not pay2win. But then they released some skins that made it really difficult to spot you. Basically, the skin was the same color of the shadows in the game lmao

So yeah, pay for some camo and it's not pay2win?


As long as there is no in-game advantage

If you give a skin that is the same colors in the game world, where you effectively blend into the colors/environment around you, that would be an advantage. So none of those.

I was fine with the first one, right up until 'Oh Warpers and Blood Kelp.' Also would have liked more effective Leviathan deterrents. Might have to poke at it again now that I got a Rift... though debating on a better headset to get.

Ouch, Dash, the Rift is already AOL. Facebook/Oculus is dropping it. Unlike the Quest 2, which they support greatly. I switched from a Rift to the Quest 2 and it's a world of difference playing my PC games wireless. The Quest 2 now officially supports wireless PC gaming with Air Link, but the Virtual Desktop workaround is still better.

You need a dedicated 5ghz SSID only to be used by your Quest 2 or it will be a stutter fest. But if you fix yourself a dedicated SSID like that, in the same room where you play, and your PC is connected to your router with a LAN cable... then it's party time. Zero issues. I am relatively speaking one of only a handful of VR players who experienced Alyx on a wireless VR set, and it's the best. Somehow ppl pay 1k+ for other, wired headsets. Not smart.

Eh. I got it from a friend for like 150 [with extra sensors], and I'm planning on either the new Reverb, or something else. Not sure I want to get a Quest2 or anything else tied to facebook. [Yes, I got a rift, but for some weird reason, I apparently had an Occulus account, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ] Cabling doesn't bother me all that much, as I have a hanging hook setup with retractable cords to use. Not sure if my router has 5ghz to split for that, if I went that route, but its somethin to look into. As for the cost, yeah. 1k$ for a wired headset is freaking ridiculous. The Index should have dropped sub-800$ at this point, though I'm curious on their next one thats supposedly wireless, and balanced MUCH better on the head.
I use the Rift so I can at least get my brain calibrated for VR use. Got all pukey trying VR Chat the first few times, and even now it makes me feel wibbly, but Alyx I'm fine with. So not sure if its a refresh rate or somethin...

I'm also kind of curious if one of the VR hardware makers decides to do like a wireless box, straight through usb3, rather than having to go through the router.

This game looks great, but it's still basically unplayable solo, right? Either stupid bots or no bots, I forget.

I've been playing Vermintide 2 again recently, and the bots in that are pretty good, considering. Only a few scenarios (real long distance sniper enemies, protecting a PC carrying a plot-map item) seem to really be stumbling blocks for the AI/Expert System in that game.

I think the coop crew has aged out of this sort of game, unfortunately. They are not interested.

Yeah. No bots for it, far as I'm aware, and it's 'possible' to solo parts of it. I have 2 or 3 friends that we poke back at it every few months. They should have adjusted the difficulty a bit better, because its super 'You gon' die.' from the first level. I don't think we've ever completed one, honestly. But its still fun from time to time. At least the first few missions in Payday were easier compared to later heists. They decided to go hardcore from the start.
