News Comments > Paragon is a MOBA

Remember when WoW took off and then everyone and their brother wanted to make an MMO game and pretty soon the market was so flooded that they could barely make a profit?

I predict the same market saturation here.

Guy did good making it to 48. To be a rocker I reckon you have to have a tormented soul.

He was lucky as hell to make it to 48 considering the amount of heroin he used.

Except that one time they took blood and I went blind for 5-10 minutes, that was freaky as hell...
What the hell? Did you get an explanation?

This was explained in the link I found when I was trying to figure out how much those blood vials hold. It's called a vasovagal response, and it's the most common form of fainting. Having one suggests you are prone to them, so it should be kept in mind, though they are more common in younger people, so you may grow out of them too.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasovagal_response

I have them all the time. Every time I switch doctors, I tell them and they ignore me. I once pitched forward out of a chair and my 100lb nurse tried to catch me and wound up with a sprained wrist and a nasty bump on her head. (6'3", 225) Now it's on my chart to have me lay down and be strapped in before they take blood.

I have whited out a couple of times. I can hear and talk back, but my ears feel like they are stuffed with cotton and I cannot see anything except white.

I can prevent them by eating and having something sugary before hand. The only times it happens, though, is getting a tattoo or a shot/taking blood. Tattoo and shot I am covered for. I load up on sugar and breeze through. (Well, Tattoos, anyway, shots still make me a little woozy) Blood for test though? They always want you to fast for 12 hours before hand, so I am always screwed.

The stupid part is, I have been stabbed, operated on while conscious and watching, you name it and it doesn't bother me. I broke my thumb and drove myself to the ER. One oz of blood gets drawn with a needle though and I pass out.

Not much hope for the XBone anyway. Just finished Tomb Raider on my Bone and sold it. TR cut scenes were so choppy it was ridiculous, and in certain areas the frame-rate dipped noticeably. I kept my CE stuff, but the game and box are gone. I'll 100% it on PS4, thanks. (Also, a bug prevented a lot of players form completing side missions past a certain point. That was fun.)

JC3 is definite PC purchase for me.

Awesome thanks Agent, I will check all of that out. I was hoping to snag some gear on Black Friday, but nothing really of note anywhere.

Yeah, not really in the market right now, but I checked out all the Newegg and Amazon specials just to see. Some storage had decent pricing, but not really any good deals on the big stuff.

It's not a huge thing here in Charlotte. Or, if it is, the crazy people get up at 3AM to hit all the stores and are done by the time I leave the house at noon.

Stopped by HHGREGG to pick up an awesome theater recliner for about 1/3 off the normal price. Almost nobody there, traffic was lighter than a normal Friday down here.

Stopped by the range to pick up my new rifle. Pro-shop was dead, but there was a wait for the range soon after I got in.

Stopped by Kohls to get shirts for work. (50-75% off) Less people than a normal Friday.

Went to Zaxby's for late lunch. NOBODY there. Drove home on 77 S with traffic as light as it usually is at midnight.

By comparison, Black Friday where I am from in upstate NY was a warzone.

I'll tell you what I have and see if it helps.

Case - Corsair Air 540 http://tinyurl.com/pu7zqah - Super quiet, big ass fans. PSU is in a separate compartment, wiring is easy through the grommets provided. Easily attach a Corsair liquid cooler to the top for your CPU. (Using an H110i GT http://tinyurl.com/nwab8po ) Case is very quiet, especially with the liquid cooling.

I have 2 Asus Strix 970 cards. They help with the noise as the fans don't even turn on ant low temps, and they are super quiet even at full speed. (Seriously, my one older HDD is the noisiest thing in this PC right now.) http://tinyurl.com/p6h9dgf

My CPU is an I7 4930K, but only because I already had it from an Alienware desktop. I chose to stick with that and get an LG2011 Asus motherboard to fit it. (Basically one of the last 2011 motherboards still being made.) Great board (Rampage IV). I mixed the cheap-ass ALienware OEM RAM with 2 stick of Klevv RAM and it works great. Board is supposed to be great for OCing, but I never have time to mess with it.

Of course then Newegg sends me a board for the newest i7 CPUs to test out, but..yeah. (Maximus VIII Ranger.) Always been a fan of Asus boards ever since A-Bit ceased to exist. (Well, a bit before then, as their last few boards were shit.)



Oh, yeah. HDD - I got this WD Blue SSHD 4TB drive from Newegg for review. Wow. I have my OS on a 500GB SSD, but STEAM and all my games live on this WD drive. It loads fast. WAY faster than my old 10,000 RPM drive. And 4TB should last your for a bit. (Always check Amazon vs Newegg, though. They are often cheaper especially if you have Prime.) http://tinyurl.com/nulvqmc

Man, editing this so much, lol. PSU -- I have 2 Corsair PSUs. (Yes, both from Newegg. I get free stuff to review.) These are also stupid quiet. I never hear this thing, especially since it is behind my motherboard. http://tinyurl.com/ov5xjnv Platinum Plus is great for your power bill to. (Gold is also good, but uses slightly more power from the socket.)

Do any of the PS4 owners here use Playstation Vue? I thought about giving it a shot but paying 50 bucks a month for 50 channels seems a bit steep, even if it works on non-Sony devices like Kindle Fire and iPad.

Nope, strictly Amazon Prime and Netflix for me. (And Netflix only because Longmire got picked up by them.) If it's not on those two and I really want to watch it, I wait for the Blu-Rays. (And a sale.)

This is pretty cool, except you can't queue as Cho or Gall and find a partner, you have to pre-group with someone. Hopefully that will change. If anybody needs, hit me up. I have both.

Well, mice mine updated and thankfully nothing seems broken. I kind of like the new dashboard better, but then again there isn't much that isn't better than the old one. Seriously, that was some ugly-ass, cobbled together bullshit. Just like Windows 8.

Edit: Mice? WTF?

Yeah, all I want to do is play Tomb Raider. I don't want it to NOT be able to play the one game I still have it for. (Well, Gems of War is fun too.)

And...I guess we'll see how it works since it was updating when I turned on the TV.

Lol, I agree 100% with what Shihonage is saying.

I completely disagree with those who keep tooting "times change" bullshit.

The original Fallout 1 & 2 are still motherfucking edgy, still innovative.

I remember when I was a kid and I only played the newest games or listened to the newest music, watched the newest movies. Over time, like Shihonage is saying most people develop some motherfucking taste. Doom metal would never have existed without a little band from 1966 called International Harvester, modern rock wouldn't have happened without the Velvet Underground being influenced by a minimalist piano player La Monte Young in the mid 1960's, Nirvana would never have happened if Lee Ranaldo & Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth had not played in the Glenn Branca Ensemble in the early 1980's, Radiohead would never have come up with Kid A without Can "Future Days" 1972. All that old shit was way before my time but it's way better, way more innovative than the shit that came afterwards, the shit it influenced. The same goes for film, Criterion collection shitting all over your art brains - let's see Bethesda shit take on David Lynch film, milk it Bethesda, milk that cow!! Let's see how shitty it is, but oh it's so weird and vast, they spent 100 mil on it, it must be good! Now everything is McMarvelled out the ass like a super hero happy meal shit storm of added food coloring multicolored diarrhea culture shit fuck, Bush 9/11.

Fallout 1 & 2 were that good, they stand the test of motherfucking time.

You know when people smoke pot and think they are making some genius argument but really they just sound ridiculous? ^

You know when people resort to baseless ad-hominem attacks just to appear "cool" and "snarky" but instead end up looking like total idiots?

Yes, you just demonstrated that. Read his post and tell me he make perfect sense all the way through. That last "sentence" is exactly what my brother sounds like when he is stoned and trying to make a point. He thinks it makes sense, sober people think he sounds like a moron.

PS - Using ad-hominem doesn't make you sound smarter, especially since debating a point based totally on personal preference and opinion with someone who is barely making any sense is pointless. But thanks for jumping in to defend him, I'm sure he appreciates it!

The controller doesn't look half bad, reviews of it seem mostly positive so far; I'll probably buy one eventually.

I really want one, but kinda broke right now. Maybe after xmas...

It certainly looks neat. I have a bookface friend with one, and his review was generally positive.


Yeah, taking some getting used to. I probably need to tweak some settings or something, but right now I prefer using my Bone controller.

Hey, you figured out I have issues with Bethesda's take on Fallout. Congratulations.

Wasteland 2 is just a mediocre squad shooter. No real world-building or story to hold it together, the whole thing is a giant gimmick.

..

Perhaps your inability to discern between genres is not merely a symptom of your own mental deficiency, but just a sign of the times where all genres are grinded together for profitability and robbed of their individual edge.

Case in point: Fallout 4, an alleged "ar-pee-gee", which is really an FPS.

(INT check failure) Oh no, he started with the hurty Bethesda words again, better stop reading this post now. Bad words hurt head. Bad man, go away.

An RPG elitist! I appreciate your neckbeard is long, unwashed, and dusted orange with sacred cheetos, may your parents basement be everdark and foreboding to the profane sunlight and social graces of in-person human contact. The original Fallouts were great isometric games in their time, and that time has passed: go back and enjoy them, otherwise don't play these new iterations if they have sullied your perfect memories. Times change and things change with it, except you, in your basement and your sour fantasies.

Except war. War never changes.

A lot of the reviews of the controller are playing madmax. Is it not recognizing it or is it some other issue? I found one thing about not being able to run/walk and control the camera at the same time if you have the right trackpad set to mouse control.

Games are going to have to stop shutting down the unused control set if this thing is going to work out. :/

Huh, I'll have to play around with it. It will mouse look with the right pad, but the stick does nothing and all the other buttons are messed up. To be honest, I haven't spent much time doing anything else but Tomb Raider right now. Hey, it's the biggest reason I still have an XBONE. I just finished the Uncharted remasters and the new TR series is my second favorite.

Besides, Fallout 4 took 2 hours to install, and now I am waiting for SCII - Legacy to install.
