No Man's Sky is basically a single player game. Calling it multiplayer is a joke. The only reason for a internet connection is so they can call it multiplayer.

You mean so you can call it multiplayer - and bitch about NMS for yet another imaginary reason.

Over the years the devs went to lengths to explain it`s a single player experience with optional online element...

stop-thinking-of-no-man-s-sky-as-a-multiplayer-game

...but don`t let this get in a way of your circlejerk

Is it really a circle if there's only one jerk?

I am excited somewhat about the new transmog system, but the class changes not at all. I am still working on my rogues skills and rotations, and now they are going to jumble skills up take away a few and add a few, yuk. I have yet to see an MMO skill rework that was a real major gameplay improvement, usually its just a mish mash of meaningless changes. In this case I think Blizz is determined to eventually release a console version so skills get trimmed, views standardized to be console compatible, etc.

Your comment confuses me... You're having trouble learning the 2 year old rotation, but Blizzard trimming skills is also a negative?

I suggest icy-veins.com for rotation/spec suggestions.. Good format, and if you can keep in mind they're only 95% correct, it's a great resource... Especially now that the core abilities tab in the spell book was removed... Which confuses the hell out of me ; )

I've gone through a few chairs over the last few decades, and I have never had one where I could pull the cylinder out... I have turned the thing upside down, put the star-pattern-stand across a few tables and hammered the cylinder... It's wedged in very tightly...

Also, the problem with WD-40 is that it's not so useful when the liquid is also unable to get in between the pieces wedged together...

So in short... Good luck ; )

Blizzard better be prepared to meet Retribution and any Rogue players feedback. It's one thing to have it kept to some in beta but it's another thing when it's a live release and everyone can see just how bad they've wrecked certain specs and classes.

I can't put enough distance between me and my Ret Paladin out of fear that I might catch a disease.

What's the problem with Ret, precisely? I prefer the new rotation myself, but I couldn't comment on the numbers... Is it a numbers thing? Which would be tweaked if it's really an issue.

Something I understand is Botting for relieving the grind game.

But I've never understood full on cheating like Autoaim and such.. I don't see how people enjoy it. It must be a griefer thing.

Agreed on the cheating confusion...

When asked if I cheat, my response is simple... I like to win too much to cheat... Which is backwards to many people with the 'at any cost' to win mentality... For me, cheating invalidates a win, and again, I like to win : )

News Comments > DOOM Demo Extended
25. Re: DOOM Demo Extended Jun 21, 2016, 14:01 Alamar
 
Almost good enough... What's the point of having a limited time demo, on a game that's already complete?

When it's just like every other demo that exists forever, I'll consider trying it, at which point, they might even make another sale... Otherwise, I'll throw it on isthereanydeal.com and pick it up in 2-3 years... Also note, I don't care about the MP, so there's no rush to get in on that action...

The G in GIF stands for Graphics, so I pronounce it using the same way as the word it stands for. I could see saying JIF if the G stood for Giraffe, but IT DOES NOT.

I defer to the creator of the format and pronounce it JIF out of respect and appreciation for the endless years of service.

Along those same lines the battle still wages over the pronunciation of "Gib and Gibbed" from John Carmack and company.

wtf... I never would have guessed it's Jib and Jibbed... Insta-Jib just rolls off the tongue... : P

Anybody that wanted to play Destiny, most likely already did on the consoles.
I don't see the point of releasing this game on the PC years after it's initial release.
Just keep your pocket change Bungie and erect a few more DLC instead of half assed pc port. It will probably be more profitable

I probably would have played the game if it had been on PC long ago, but I'm never going to buy a new console just for a game... I've had more great PC games to play than I have time to play them anyway. I wouldn't buy it if they released it now because it's too little too late. I'm going to encourage other companies who treat PC gamers better. Like others said, I won't be missing much anyway.

Man... I have only ever purchased a console for one game... Super Mario, Sonic, Soul Calibur, Not sure on the more recent (~15 years) systems, but then Bloodborne... : )

Vampyr, the upcoming vampire gaym

Putting your opinion of how this game will be in the text?

I did a double take when I first read it... And then scanned the headline, wondering if the character was gay or whatever... I think Blue just did that because Vampyr, even though the trailer, he calls himself a vampire...

I found Prophecies pretty lackluster at first... There are so many that are just a waste of time... At least from a reward point of view... And that fits the nature of an RNG loot system, so it's not all bad...

Plus... I got my first ever (500+ hours played) 6L... Which is a Tabula Rasa, so it's kind of cheating (and I got it on the first day of Prophecy)... I'm enjoying FrostBolt/Vortex and will try to stick with it to the 90s, but I find high level grinding so damn boring...

And, Tabula is so bittersweet for me... It let's me be OP for 70 levels, but it'll be a pain to find a replacement, so I can throw it in my stash for a new alt/build...

Cool... A co-worker has put a lot of time into this, but I wasn't sure I'd like it... Queue'd it up for DL tonight, as the 25GB is kind of crazy for my monthly cap (that I go nowhere near, but still).

I had forgotten this was in the works, but I see it's already on my Steam Wish List. Also thoroughly enjoyed some of the previous installments, but I did end up finding them a bit too long in the SP campaign... We'll see how the third's '30+ hours' feels, but I'm happy to see some very nice/crisp graphics ; )

Makes you wonder what their QA process is...

Btw, the bit about 'don't worry, you won't be penalized', is because this patch re-enables some hacker griefing BS...
