Figured I'm in the right thread. So... Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, and Legacy of the Void. So is NOW a good time to buy the COMPLETE game?

Not sure if the sale is still on but you could buy the first two for $9.99 each a week or so ago. But I haven't regretted buying any of them so far. Probably have pushing 400 hours into just the first two parts.

Just tried the free mission... I'm very rusty. I really hate timed missions so I wish they'd gone with something else. Still fun and I look forward to the full expansion. Thinking I need to replay a bit though before it comes out since I don't remember the story very well.

I'm the same way, just a FYI though any existing mission saves are no longer compatible. That just means though, if you were half-way through a mission, it'll restart you at the start of that mission.

:0 A FREE CAMPAIGN?!

It's actually pretty good as well, though if you'd already pre-ordered this expansion you got to play it a month ago.

Having spoken to Liz before, she's generally on the ball about the stuff she writes about. So not really surprised that they're sticking to it.

Nice there Kotaku, you can thank either /kotakuinaction/(gamergate) or /pcmasterrace/ for that. They're the ones who broke the story open on that. Then again, considering that they regularly lift stuff from the net and claim it's theirs, this isn't too surprising.

Well, it is trolling too. He went out of his way to torture people online.

I agree that he needs help though.

That's the guy that anti-GGers tried really really hard to claim was part of gamergate, despite the fact he regularly wrote for ghazi, and big name feminist sites(dozens of articles no less) and had a popular blog on dailykos. But he was definitely GG, since he used the hashtag like 10 times according to them.

That is until every mod requires the DLC to run.

Lot of mods still have patch specific versions, so I don't really see that happening.

I see these and I see plain as day its not New Vegas. But I keep hoping its NV level of story writing.

Its not NV2 its not NV2. Its F4, its F4. Have to keep telling myself to be let down from what I would actually want.

Won't be that way unless Obsidian does another FO game. I expect the story quality to be right around skyrim level for FO4,and even at that I can't say I'm really gun-ho for this FO game anyway. I'd love another 2.5D FO game though.

Will require SSD for those "entering tiny hut/exiting tiny hut" loading screens.
Witcher 3 did a hell of a good job of killing the whole "entering/exiting" cells bit, sadly it can be done with the engine in Skyrim with no problems already especially with cities. Can't be done on consoles, since they still have a massive memory problem.

Apparently xcom2 was 4th on the list earlier this week, and dropped to 15th after people realized how screwed up the pricing is for it.

Wonder how much FemFreq will be on the hook, two years and counting I believe.

$80CDN to preorder xcom2
I'll wait for a deal on that one.

You and me both, and the entire time they'll be wondering why their sales are so shitty. Won't surprise me in the least that near release I'll be able to find it at EB, bestbuy/futureshop or Walmart for $20 less here in Canada.

One of the most popular Skyrim mods was better looking and nude female models... I anticipate a thriving underground adult-oriented FO4 modding community!

Since a thriving adult-oriented community already exists for FO and Elder scroll games you can be sure it'll exist there. I'm not excited for this release though, the whole dialog wheel thing just annoys me along with everything being VO'd.

So a 200 hour game with NG+ on top of that needs a 10 hour DLC?

I'm good with that, I've played through the game twice already and more content is always good.

So which one is Cutter then, aggro or troll? Or do you actually agree with me, but are too afraid to say it out loud? Because he's sure as hell a rabid prick...has been for years now. All I've ever him do is spew bile and venom over anyone he disagrees with.

Frankly, I don't -care- if he's aggro, troll, or some other class of prick. He's exactly what I'm talking about. And all you folks that agree with him seem to be quite happy letting him vomit all over everyone else. Which does not speak well of you, either. Laying down with dogs...fleas, and all that.

He could be all three if he wanted to, but here's the thing you don't seem to get. Even if he's an asshole, he's his own asshole. If he's a troll, he's a troll on his own, even if he's pro, neutral or anti-gg, he's still his own person who can make up their own mind. Welcome to the big boy world, where defending a persons speech even if you disagree with it, is the right thing to do.

The second that you label someone as the face, or a member of something even if they have their own opinions, ideas, or anything else. You're no different then a bigot saying xyz cultural group is xyz or racist going all xyz are blah blah blah because xyz person is that. Or xyz person should be shut up because it hurts my feelings/I don't like it/whatever. The use of identity politics is nothing short of cancer, and you should feel bad for using it.

Oh yeah, "You're a blight on the gene pool, do the rest of us a favour and cull yourself and your pals from it." is just being tons of fun. I get it now.

Here's one of the biggest problems with this GG crowd. Nobody is willing to even attempt to moderate the rabid pricks that are so common among them. Once the death threats and other nastiness start coming out, any moderate voices (if such even exists, I haven't seen any evidence of it) just get quiet and move to the back. I can see just two possible reasons for it. Either they know that to call them down will make them a target too, or they really do agree with the rabid pricks and are happy to let someone else take the backlash.

Find me someone who's not a troll or aggro who's being rabid pricks and I'll follow your line of reasoning. After all, the media have had a really good time with the "GG = death threats narrative" but there's zero proof that it's anyone actually in GG. Then again I can very quickly find pro-doxing, pro-harassment, in major anti-GG voices. We can start with Wu, Quinn, Nyberg to start with.

Here's the thing, when you're dealing with a hashtag anyone can use it right? Unless of course you believe that since xyz person on blues posted a neo-nazi sentiment, all blues posters are neo-nazi's. And that makes no sense, or does it?

Can't forget garbage like this either, That's the face of anti-GG and only one facet of it.

With GG mostly wound down by now, they've somewhat been pushed back to the fringe, but whenever a social issue pops up they'll still try to win back some fans so that maybe they don't get laughed at too hard next time they deny climate change or evolution or gay marriage or whatever less popular ideas they have.

They also tend to be the "every game sucks except for the games I like!" segment, so basically, they make everything no fun.

Uh dude, GG isn't winding down. Kotakuinaction one of the main hubs has over 1m unique visits per month, and is in the top 50 of busiest subs on reddit. But let's look at today's "social justice warriors" so we've got: Wu screaming about how Samus Aran is trans, and goes batshit insane when proven wrong. The Mary Sue, engaging in open conspiracy theories, and one of the prominent anti-GG members apparently engaging in pedophilia and aGGro's circling the wagons to protect them.

I think you mean social justice warriors are the "every game sucks except the games that follow my exact ideology." The vast majority of GG believes that market force will determine if a game is good or bad, and considering the number of aggro's and sjw's who want to shoehorn people into things to make it fit their ideology, you tell me: Which group is being "unfun" the one that says "let the market decide" or the one that says "it's transphobic, it must be banned."

Oh and one can't forget this one.

"Justice" and "Social Justice" are two very different things.

Additionally, what something is labeled can be far from how it is treated. The common political standings of Liberalism and Conservatism in the US act as pro-censorship and pro-big government, respectively, despite the dictionary terms being quite the opposite.

True. These days "social justice" seems to be leaning towards authoritarian restrictions and mob justice regardless of what the evidence actually says. Where groups of people get all upset when something offends their sensibilities and want to ban it. See the most recent case of SJW's going after the feminism mein kampf extension, or the UVA rape case..or lack thereof.

An educated mind can also easily pick up the difference between propaganda that uses weasel words and cherry picking. Which is what this video is, and actual researched information presented properly.
