If you haven't read the novels yet and do like a bit of a departure from the standard Western style fantasy, these are great. Got all of em after picking the first one up in an airport and couldn't put it down.

Looking forward to giving the game a whirl when my dance card frees up.

This game looks somewhat interesting. You've got my attention at the very least, if you have a 4+ person party based, isometric(-ish) fantasy or sci-fi combat heavy game... I'll read up on The Dwarves a bit.

The books (I've read them all) are quite enjoyable as long as you are prepared to take on board the cultural background of the writer (German iirc). Much like the Nightwatch books, they differ dramatically from Western tropes and plotlines.

Crazy that someone has made a game of this already when other fantasy IP's haven't made it to game or movie (Gemmel's Legend books for example), but I'm quite interested to give it a whirl.

Let a company making shitty games fail because they make shitty games and no one buys them. End of story. Don't take it upon yourself to harass them off the planet.

These guys brought this shit on themselves.

Everyone knows that out of the billions of people on the net, there is a guaranteed % that are going to say the worst possible things. It's not nice, it's not cool, but it's a reality.

So when you flip unity assets to turn out complete shovelware and go after anyone who calls you on it, it's pretty understandable that there would be a over the top reaction...

Now there's a game that needs to be remade.

Please, no. It will get consolized and ruined.

While the gameplay was fun, it was the soundtrack and the way they captured that 70's car chase movie feel that really made this game a winner.

Plus the children... The children are burning!

I'm a founder. It's crap.

Everything that starts with a Founder request is doommed , but peps will not learn Clown

Yeah, obviously...

Grim Dawn
Elite
7 Days To Die
Pillars of Eternity
Satellite Rain
Subnautica
Wasteland 2
Path of Exile

Should I go on?

As for me, I have enough disposable income that I can afford to speculate on the games that I really do want to see come out. Buyer beware of course, but most of my picks have been worth it.

Current PvE vs Tyranids (wtb playable tyranids btw...) is shite, plenty of falling through the floor, bugged combat (combat is not fluid in the slightest), net code is questionable etc etc.

It's been pretty disappointing thus far because War 40k Planetside with PvE sounds, on the surface, like "a good thing"...

Good clickbait title because it clearly wasn't his hand that knocked it off. Rolleyes

Honestly, he essentially licked the whole bar with his body...

Easy now Easy now , we will introduce a new system called battlenet that req always online that way there will be no cheaters in the future

It will work for all our games : We blizzi did it no more cheaters.....


Ah don't be fucking backwards... It's impossible to stop people cheating because you are exposing a system made by possibly hundreds of people to millions. It's simple probability, eventually someone is going to find a loophole or a way to apply external code...

It's how they respond to cheats, and battlenet is a pretty effective tool by the looks of it.

ps. I'd love to see you dig up an actual quote where Blizz said battlenet was cheat proof.

That comparison is so hilariously off, I don't know where to start with the explanation. Therefore, I won't even bother. Some hints, though: indian wages and raw material prices in comparison to US/EU/AUS/NZ and so on, etc., pp. It is not even apples and oranges, it is submarines and eggs.

If you can afford a submarine while the other guy is stuck with an egg, you can afford to quit bitching about regional pricing. X D

Those 2 really needed some nerfing. McCree could oneshot tanks. Getting oneshotted by a sniper simply isn't remotely fun. Wtf could I've done to prevent that? Not show my face?

I'll enjoy a better balanced Overwatch once I've returned from my USA trip. Gonna be chillin' at family in Connecticut (East-Haddam) and Pennsylvania (Doylestown).

Part of the problem with Widowmaker is that headshot boxes extend beyond the head part of the model. Been demonstrated that you could hit a headshot with the player completely obscured by cover by aiming 10-15 cm's to the left or right of the head (or above in the open).

Not sure if they addressed that at all but /shrug, if you know widow is around you just try to be more careful about exposing yourself (and the big colour lines tend to give her position away quickly... ; )

Told ya this shit is garbage but nooo... CJ is such a horrible troll and a negative nancy blahblahbluhblehblah. Yup. Maybe I am. But I'm also right 99.9% of the time .

Keep on buying all the latest hyped garbage games though so the publishers know that's exactly what you want. Come on... there's a Watch Dawgs 2 waiting for preorders just based on the trailer. Whatcha waitin' for? Go, go, go!

/giggle Yet another thread where CJ attempts to self fellate...

My co-op group enjoyed the content and DZ (cheats were an issue but not an enormous one) until I (the tanky build) started crashing out after the last patch in Falcon Down. Turns out, the sound of the big cannon explosion causes some SLI users to crash if you are looking in the direction of the sound source...

At that point, we kinda gave up until they fixed the shit, guess we'll see when the patch drops...

I still can't get over the stupid setting. I mean North Korea occuping the USA? How could this even be remotely possible?

I take it you never saw Red Dawn? \= |

They put out extensive background to the reason why North Korea had turned in to a superpower via technology in the lead up vids, it's an alternate history.

I'm guessing you'd complain because Wolfenstein isn't an accurate recollection of WWII?

Gabe's Valve's TF2 got STOMPED!

TF2 was released in 2007...

If it takes 9 years to come up with something to "stomp" a title, I'd say the title has done it's job.

ps. Gaben must have touched your no hole pretty hard to cause this much whiney teenage angst.

Mine started when the wife was pregnant as a mobile husband locator. I occasionally use it for work. Otherwise, I hate the fucking thing.

And no, it's not devolutionising anything, kids were always morons (they were in my day, I know I've done shitloads of dumb things) and they're morons now. It's natural selection that has evolved. Die walking in to traffic because you can't leave twitter alone, that's evolution in action...

But it's funny when you see a table full of people not talking while all madly using their phones. Connected to so many people but completely alone. Kinda sad.
