I will say that if you are on attack and the defending team has a Bastion AND a Torbjorn the game feels lost from the start. God forbid if they have a Bastion, Torbjorn, AND a Symmetra...

Just Genji him. Usually you can catch him unaware and make him kill himself, or get close to it. Or hook him if you can get close enough. Rein can smash him. Sombra can get behind him and hack him. Junkrat can usually lob shit at him. Lots of counters. Although I agree.. if you're on an uncoordinated team you may be SOL.

The live changes made Bastion's sentry mode give him 35% damage reduction, which can actually protect him from deflect and even Genji's ultimate...the nerf at least puts it back to 20%.

These type of things in games, just like in movies always makes me go why?

If I wanted to see a long drawn out romance sequence, I would watch porn. They just need to show enough that people go "ok they had sex"

You watch porn for long drawn out romance sequences? Porn has romance sequences??

Don't be fooled, this lost basically all of its true w40k roots.

How so? Also, considering how many "true" 40k games are absolute garbage, does it matter if they take some liberties as long as the game is good?

Correct, u refering to most of the shovelware titles that come out by no name developers to try to attract w40k fans to buy a game using the license.

However, in this case they really dumped w40k rules, they basically abandon all the violence and darkness of w40k that was still noticeable in dow1 and even dow2, and worst of all the game looks like a cartoon, the graphics are in many areas actually a step back even than dow2. Technically this is a high budget shovelware moba game with w40k sticked to it to try and catch w40k fans. Oh and did I forget, there is no last stand game mode in it, a mode that kept dow2 alive for years. without last stand noone would be playing dow2 anymore.

Funny, kinda looks about the same, sans the 'cleaning up' of the models

If anything it's surprising I can hardly tell DoW2 and this "new" game apart, that first screenshot looks worse than DoW2, much fewer details, no ground height differences and particle effects. It's like they went back and gimped the engine.... but then again, showing an ice world is maybe what does that.. mhh. The DoW2 ice worlds looked a lot better (grimmer)

Static images area always going to be that way, but in motion I'd say that things look smoother than what I remember in DoW2, if at the very least on par. They are using the same engine still, so we're talking about the same one from CoH2, I'd expect the set-pieces to be pretty detailed for their genre overall.

Hahahaha ridiculous. You guys are so deeply tangled up in Stockholm syndrome it's not even funny. Y'all are desperately trying to justify your MEA preorders by denying EA's unquestionable sins of the past. A few years ago these forums (among many others) were in flames due to EA's shitty business and DLC practices related to ME (and DA).
I'm going to say that I wasn't one of those people up in arms about your listed 'sins'...but hey, the only thing that I was mildly upset about was the original hackneyed ending of ME3 and the overused set-pieces of DA2. Other than that, I just don't purchase things I don't think I'd enjoy or agree with in direction.

Nowadays it's apparently all OK and forgotten (talk about "alternative facts"... that's you, buddy, not me). Y'all have so gotten used to taking it up the ass, you don't even realize anymore when EA lodges their fatty deep inside y'all.

Sorry, but I don't remember stating subjective criticisms as objective facts, but alas, apparently my memory is far inferior to your great mind.....

As I said, you have this massive chip on your shoulder and instead of brushing it off and accepting that there might just be people out there with different likes and dislikes as you, you just go ahead and state unequivocally that we're all wrong and you're right.

And this is exactly why gaming is going down the shitter. Because y'all keep supporting these companies with their shitty season passes, their piecemeal deliveries, their dumbing down and their abuse of once great franchises for milking cash from the gullible fools.
No, I'd actually state the opposite is true...giving money for the industry, even for shitty ideas, keeps it alive. Of course, most of us are capable of critical thinking enough to know what are bad investments and what are, at the very least, ok investments.

All just because y'all got no spine and can not resist hype for shit. No, no. It's Mass Effect(!!!111), it's BioWare(!!!111) so of course you MUST preorder and succumb to the peer pressure since if you wouldn't preorder you'd only feel like half a man with a tiny pee-pee.

Wow, again with the holier than thou attitude...I will purchase ME because I liked the series, yes, however I do it of my own free will and ability as an adult to make a decision. If you don't want to purchase it, I'm not going to call you any names...but I also don't call people names when they buy games that I don't care about, I mean, it's a thing called being an adult and allowing other people to enjoy their tastes in entertainment.

Laughable. Given the history of the franchise, any sane person would wait for reviews and EA's detailed DLC plan before splurging cash on this fucker. I'm going to laugh my ass off if the game -as expected- turns out buggy as fuck with an abysmal plot and characters, way too short and if EA releases massive bits of backstory, additional characters etc. in DLC format.

I'm going to go out on a limb that the history of the franchise is why people are excited over it. A game trilogy with hundreds of hours of gameplay where most people enjoyed the hell out of it until the last 15-20 minutes is far better than a lot of other games out there.

And you can feel free to laugh your ass off if it lives up to your expectations...if I get my return on investment then your laughing is only that of a bitter little imp that can't find enjoyment in anything other than deriding people for their tastes. So, cheers.

All the talent left Bioware a long time ago. What's left is SJW'S and idiots like this writer.

So....you hate racists and black people?

Got it, Mr. One Post Man.

Psst he's from India. Not sure where you get any sort of hate out of pointing out Bioware employs openly racist people. But then again the progressive hive mind of stupid is pretty rampant on this site to begin with.

Sorry, I couldn't care less what personal opinions a professional has when it doesn't impact the product I consume from a company they work for...

I've eaten Jimmy Johns sandwiches but I don't support large game hunting. I eaten Chik-fil-A but I don't support radical Bible thumping nutjobs...a company is not a single person. I support the product and that has nothing to do with the personal feelings of a single person unless it is a one-man operation.

But hey, if you want to decry a company that is literally filled with hundreds of people over a single one, I sure hope you understand that I'm sure every company has either employed or currently employs a person with racist tendencies.

I better be the damn Messiah. If I wanted to be a random nobody, I'd put the controller down and spend time with my family, go to work, watch TV.

What I understand is that you are actually the child of the Messiah in Andromeda, so that is a bit of a change of pace.

Dude... way to miss the whole point. I would absolutely be willing to pay more and buy closer to release IF:

Based upon your previous posts, I highly doubt this would be the case...but I'll bite..

- They would NOT develop half a dozen DLCs in the first place but actually ship a complete game on release.
Really none of the DLC was required for a complete story with any level of satisfaction (sans the free DLC they released to 'explain' the stupid ME3 ending). Even the Promethean DLC wasn't required to enjoy ME3, it enhanced it greatly and fleshed out that race. Truly though, it wasn't required to enjoy ME3 as a whole.

- They would only release expansion-type DLC (like classic retail expansions). See Witcher 3 Blood&Wine and Hearts of Stone.
They kinda did with the ones they released that were major story additions. Whenever they added a new character, they gave an hour or so set of missions to integrate them into the story...which is pretty par for the course for games well before Bioware started doing them.

- They actually made a decent game. This shit doesn't look like it. Way too casual and really shitty Frostshite artificial graphics with an amazingly low level of detail in the scenes shown so far. There also seems to be zero RPG left. It's obviously all about very simplistic (i.e. even more simple than before) pew-pew now so yawn.

So what you're saying is that you'd pay for a game that you would want to play, but since you have such a massive chip on your shoulder you're just going to disparage others for buying a game they feel they'd enjoy and want to play...

Of course, you can continue to sit there and spout of subjective complaints while trying to state them as alternative facts while the bulk of people here will continue to ridicule you for the delusional whacko you portray.

Whew, thankfully bethesda aren't a bunch of dumbasses who would post major spoilers of the game, in a press release.

What do you mean? I have reread the whole thing multiple times and there's not a hint of a spoiler in it. All it contains is a brief description of the non-interactive intro sequence at the very beginning of the game.

I think he somehow wasn't being sarcastic.

Hehe, nah, I was being sarcastic. Well a sarcastic idiot, if fds is correct. Let's see if I owe bethesda and the world an apology.

What I mean is...I read it once and it spoiled the story. Here's the quote, since apparently need to point it out.

...the mad witch Delilah seizes the throne the fate of your Empire is left hanging in the balance...

So that's not a story spoiler in a PR release? Remember just like millions of other gamers I still haven't played it. I'm not even sure what to say about fds's claim there is no story anymore. Apparently they are just levels for you to run around in. Not sure why bethesda didn't think of this before. They could have saved all the money paid for the stories, in their previous games!
Can you be spoiled by being told something that takes place about 10 minutes into the game, which is right after the tutorial sequence?

Probably due to the work-ethic society more-so than fake waifus running around.

Then you have to also take into account Japan's heavy societal pressure on introverts. I'm going to go out on a limb and think that this won't change anything that isn't already taking place and have been in place for decades before.

*Shrug* Granted this is what occurs with games that aren't moddable. Don't like a skin? No problem, make your own.

What's wrong with this skin though? I don't get it.

Also this post is highly entertaining:

That skin is a JOKE ... looks like she is in wearing Satin PJ's. What a HUGE waste of time for her to finally get her skin 3 evens later to be TRASH. Mei's event Trash, Mei's Skin Trash .... this game has ( for me at least ) been working extra hard showing me the exit. So many promises so little to show for those promises. Also love OW for it's lore and the ....... WAIT ..... what lore ? We have heard slim to nothing since all that wonderful waste of our time waiting for Sombra. A round or disappointment is on me boys ... drink up.
(kept their formatting and emphasis the same) Gamez sure are serious bizness. Sometimes, one just needs to step away from the comp and do something else.

MOST of the people complaining about the skin are not complaining about the skin itself, but the cost. It takes 3000 currency to get it (or whatever random lootbox drop), which is the highest amount of anything in-game, all for nothing but a recolor and a new Ice Block model.

Personally, if currency was awarded better or the lootbox drop-rates were different, then I wouldn't have a problem, but for people who are either near 100 or above, we have a slog to get lootboxes. And with currency either being given in such small doses via duplicates, or slightly-less small doses in lootboxes, buying them takes a while.

I feel the skin shouldn't have been 3000 gold without a bit more added to it, but the skin itself isn't bad.

If psychopath is too strong a word, perhaps sociopath would be more apt.

I mean, Robin Williams was paid a shit-ton of money through his career, should we just not care that he suffered from acute depression and decided to kill himself because, of course, he was rather wealthy.

Working conditions in Japan are notoriously difficult to our Western views, so if the standards that Kojima was placed in actually rated worse than that, then yes, it is something that shouldn't be ignored because he's 'rich'.

Cutter is, and more than like will always be, a complete hardass when it comes to empathy when it happens to people he feels don't deserve it...it's his right to be that way, but it's also our right to see it for what it is.

Been enjoying it, but yeah the performance is crap. I'm getting around 35 - 45 fps on a GTX 980. Tried a few suggestions but can't seem to get over 45 frames. Gameplay wise, it's been good. Although I will say that the guards are way too alert. They seem to be able to see me through tiny slits in the geography while I'm crouched, so there's not nearly as much sneaking as I had hoped. If you come directly behind them it's fine, but anywhere in front and they seem to spot you pretty easily.
CPU: I7-5930K@3.50GHz
RAM: 16GB 2666
OS: Win10 pro
HDD: OS on an 850 EVO, game on an WD Black 6TB
GPU: GeForce GTX 980 (in SLI, but not used)
Video Driver: Still using the 373.06 Game Ready drivers

Only dipped down to 57 or so fps a couple times, solid 60 for me on everything high with TXAA, HBAO, and all their extra options turned on.

I didn't find the guards all that alert in my Emily playthrough, matter of fact, for a lot of them I felt they were too passive despite my insistence on using a lot of distractions.

Depends on the company. The season pass for Witcher 3 was a fantastic deal.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned RockSt*r/GTA V, as they have continually released updates and free DLCs to keep it fresh, w/o any season pass BS, etc.

I bet GTA V will still over shadow anything Watch Dogs 2 has to offer......

My guess is that people get rather annoyed with the free stuff in GTAV is online stuff and considering that online is plagued with cheaters/hackers that R* doesn't seem to care about dealing with, that it tarnishes the positives.
