I'm sorely tempted, but I hear the grind is insane in that game, with randomized drops, etc. How badly do you feel that affects the game, if at all?

It was initially quite frustratingly grindy and the RNG pretty much screwed you over constantly.

BUT that has changed a bit with the various crafting systems and bounty board system that they've added. They've introduced different ways of crafting various class-based melee or ranged gear, allowed you to tier-step gear of a certain type as well as re-roll gear mods and percentages. With the Bounty Board, you can do contracts and bounties to get gems and keys which you need to unlock various daily (some really good) gear.

It still does have a random RNGness to what you'll get but if you do the various bounties and salvage junk gear, you'll end up with plenty of various gems to craft, and reroll with. With both systems in the game, the absurd grindy RNG of loot is a lot more bearable now.

Indy games on sale I'd also recommend:

- How to Survive 2: ($4.50 - http://store.steampowered.com/app/360170/)
A really fun zombie survival arpg that has a 4 player co-op.

- Space Pirates And Zombies 2 aka. SPAZ 2: ($12.99 - http://store.steampowered.com/app/252470/)
A mix between Space Rangers 2 (top down over-world map and factions) with a fun 2.5D naval-like combat system (similar to Rebel Galaxy). The great thing is that you build your battleship piece by piece and that affects many things in regards to your weapon arcs, turn speed, etc.

I wonder if this'll be based off of the stupid comic book version of GotG, the enjoyable movie version or a hybrid of both like in the cartoon.

The GOTY edition description on GOG reads in part:
" Features all technical and visual updates as well as a new user interface completely redesigned on the basis of feedback from members of the Witcher Community."
What does that mean exactly? Can I get this interface without getting the GOTY?

Once again I could be 100% wrong but if I remember correctly, a lot of previous Witcher 3 patches added a bunch of UI, inventory and QoL tweaks and fixes due to player feedback so that blurb could be about those changes.

I've been checking the official Witcher 3 forums and everyone's saying that the only difference between the GotY version and normal version + 2 expansions is that there's one simple GotY-version installer rather than a bunch of individual installers (2 expansions + a bunch of free DLC) for the regular version.

Although I'm not 100% sure, I think that the only difference between the normal version + DLCs and the GotY edition is that the GotY version would only be one simple install compared to the current hassle of installing the vanilla game + 2 expansions + the bazillion free DLCs one by one for the normal version.

Interesting. I haven't seen any of them. Any examples on YouTube or such?

A compilation of the ones released so far. The first 3 scenes are from the base game and the remaining two are from the expansions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjG61DoDzN8

This is most likely why this expansion exists before the base game is even out of early access. Gotta recoup $40 mill somehow and sales for the base game have probably stagnated.

If I remember correctly, McCree's Fan the Hammer doesn't do headshot damage, just his normal single shot. BUT what good pre-nerf McCrees would do is to stun, Fan, roll and then Fan again. That would murder any Tank if most of the shots connected.

I haven't had a chance to play with a good Reinhardt and a good Bastion before, but as a Mercy player I will say that while Bastion + Mercy is quite strong it feels like that is just a player issue. It reminds me a lot of when TF2 first came out. Good heavy medic combos are still strong now, but plenty of people called it 'too strong' until... well public servers finally got the memo.

Hah, saw this version last night on Reddit: Overwatch memo

Bastion is certainly the "pub-stomper" class of Overwatch at the moment. Most competitive multiplayer games with classes tend to have one or two of these (ie. Nova was an easy-to-use pub-stomper in HotS when the game was first released or the Heavy + Medic combo in TF2).

As Sepharo mentioned, he can be countered though and I do think that Blizzard is going to tone down his damage a bit. As the community matures, I'm thinking that he'll be used less and less in ranked matches (ie. Nova once again) since there are other characters who can do what he does as well as provide more utility to the team.

The game looks fine, though I think their trailer editing/voiceover is boring

Is it just me, or do the lip movements look worse than the previous game?

That bugged me as well.

"Everything looks great but why is the lip-syncing so goddamn awful?" was what was constantly running in my head while watching this trailer. Like the other poster said, hopefully this is just an early version.

There's also the case that some people are already using hacks during the Division PC beta.

A friend and I were insta-headshotted at extreme ranges by a sub-machine-using guy in the PVP Dark Zone. Initially I was just suspicious and figured that he got really lucky, but once I looked at the left-side recap dialog, I saw that he was constantly killing and headshotting a mass amount of other players and not a single person/team killed him. Ran across him again by myself later on and it was just obvious that he was using an aimbot now that I was paying attention.

If Ubisoft doesn't do something about this kind of stuff, it's just going to ruin the PVP aspect of the game.

Ugh, very underwhelmed by this BvS trailer. It spoiled WAY too much and pretty much reveals how the movie'll play out. It's a given that this movie is just DC's rush to catch up with Marvel and set up a JLA movie, but I was hoping that they would have been less blatant about it.

I didn't realize it until now, but I basically just wanted TDKR in movie form and it seems like this is anything but that :/

Has anyone figured out how to get the game to work in Fullscreen mode and not Borderless window yet? I can run the game fine in bordeless window, but I feel that (Nvidia GTX970 user here) the game doesn't do Vsync correctly, and I noticed some weird graphical anomalies and some performance issues too.

Dunno if this'll fix things, but if you edit your Fallout4Prefs.ini (with a text editor) in C:\Users\%YourProfileName\Documents\My Games\Fallout4 there are two entries:

bBorderless=1
bFull Screen=1

Both were set to "1" by default for me and setting bBorderless=0 didn't mess up anything in-game so far.

Some really useful tips that I've found, posted from another thread:

- Pressing the E key is the same as pressing the Enter key in most prompts.

- Holding down Shift and using WASD is the same as using the arrow keys in certain menus. Very handy in Build mode.

- Holding down the E key when you have an object selected in Build mode will allow you to use the mouse wheel to raise/lower the object as well as decrease the spin and movement speed of said object.

- Dogmeat (and other companions) can equip certain gear if you trade it with him and get him to equip it (T key). From a quick test, so far Dogmeat can equip welding goggles, bandanas and various dog collars. Saw a screenshot of him armored up so some armors might work.

- Holding down Tab turns on the Pipboy light/Power Armor Headlamp.

- Vegetable Starch is the answer for all your Adhesive needs.

Also, someone's found a way to get building objects to clip through the environment/other building parts in Build mode. This essentially allows you to build any object on any Settlement surface and will allow people to build REALLY elaborate bases now:

Every video I've seen has made this game look incredibly repetitive.

It is but it's basically a budget-priced Left 4 Dead with character classes, loot and a melee system. From what I've played in the beta, I can see it being a lot of fun with 3 other friends in the same vein as L4D.
