Steam's obsession with consolitis is a strange one.

Yeah, it's ridiculous that it affected all of their games. I started a HOTS game right as it hit, everyone was disconnected and of course received penalties for "leaving".

Yay, they started this event up and then Blizzard immediately got DDOS'd by Brazil.

From the leaked footage the game definitely seemed a lot cooler than anything the developers had presented, which is a positive. Isn't it true that no one starts on the same planet? If so, I wonder if that little bit of the "dog" following the player is a scripted experience or not for whatever the starting area is. If it wasn't scripted, then damn, this game might be worth putting a good amount of hours into, stoned at least. I haven't been that excited because Elite absolutely burned me, I only played that game for about 10 hours and probably 3 of them were just getting used to the controls and everything taking a bit of time.

That said, I'm not sold on NMS for $60, but I think people who are buying We Happy Few for $30 are going to be in for a bigger disappointment having played the early access.

Exactly, why would Bioware not have a forum for bug reports and such? They think facebook, steam & reddit are going to take care of that for them? The flames will IGNITE. See you in Hell Bioware, lol!

Yeah, who cares. But, their explanation is definitely cringe-worthy.

It's definitely difficult to get hyped on this after Elite: Dangerous and having not seen or heard any meaningful explanation of anything cool that the player can do in the game other than "you can go there, you can go there, you can land there, angry security robots, collect this and that and pew pew pew, oh did we mention it's procedurally 5,000,000,000,000 lightyears of google gobbly uninspired repetition?"

Honestly, spent $70 on this game during beta and probably spent, max 8 hours playing. Any reason to return?

HOTS is one of my favorite games but jesus christ if the game doesn't have some shitty performance issues related to memory. More so, it has the fucking WORST disconnect/reconnect issues I have ever seen in any multiplayer game, it searches the fucking replays to bring you back into the game resulting in: YOU HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED, RECONNECT SUCCESSFUL, YOU HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED, YOU HAVE DIED, RECONNECT SUCCESSFUL, YOU HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED 5, 8, 19, 10, 2, 5, 1, 25 seconds remaining, YOU HAVE DIED. Then if it is a Hero League game, after all of the bullshit, it will be 20 minutes later and you will have 3 quick matches to player due to leaver status.

News Comments > Heroes of the Storm Free Heroes Weekend
2. Re: Heroes of the Storm Free Heroes Weekend Jun 25, 2016, 10:24 heroin
 
Been playing this game since alpha, I honestly only played Valla for about a year straight. But, now I have about 30 heroes ready to play in Hero League - my favorite hero by far is Sylvannas. She feels amazing in most Hero League matches - pushing lanes, clearing waves with ease, stopping towers from damage output to minions & heroes, MIND CONTROL (taking over an enemy character's hero temporarily, great for grabbing a pesky Tracer or healer) AND she has the best escape since it is able to fly through walls. Plus, Sylvannas has a nasty tongue and is good to look at (I like the elven ladies).

Rehgar is going to get nerfed soon, but he is so much fun to last hit and heal with.

The game has definitely gotten much better over time - though I still kinda hate Temple of Doom in Hero League.

People have said that the Warcraft film was an OK fantasy film. I thought it was sooooooo fucking boring. And believe me, I love Warcraft, I think I've played through Warcraft 3 like 10 times at least (I love the lore).

I'm not sure why Blizzard has been so conflicted with how they represent their games. The CGI ads are fucking awesome, yet do not display the true nature & tone of Warcraft (cartoony, goofy, silly, pop cultural). Then they have the in-game animation ads which are on point but everyone wants the CGI instead... so why make a film with real characters? And even though there was some poor attempts at humor in the film, it was mostly so damn self-serious.

If you bought it from Blizzard's website then you were slightly scammed. They made it seem like there was only a $60 version, but somewhere in there was the $40 version. I got Tracer in HOTS because of that... I hate Tracer, I wish that toon was never made, I think Kotick is way into Tracer.

Most of the people I know, including myself, have already given up on Overhype. Game shipped before it was finished and the netcode/server prediction and matchmaking are horrible. It'll turn into another Heroes of the Storm shortly with a small die-hard fan base and that's it.

I personally think Heroes of the Storm is far superior to Overcooked. But, it did take HOTS a good amount of time after the official release to become something killer. I think overtime more and more people will get down with how HOTS has cooked up. It took me a little less than 2 months of the beta to be completely done with Overcooked for now. Congratulations to Blizzard for figuring out how much people love multiplayer first person shooters and graphics....

stuff

were done better in the Ultima series nearly 30 years ago. I suppose the mainline Ultima games weren't first-person (except for dungeon exploration in I - V) but nearly all of the open world stuff you describe was front and center in Ultima V-VII.

This is very true. I wish Garriot were working on a single-player spiritual successor to Ultima 6 or 7. Instead, he's currently polishing the turd that is the spiritual successor to UO.

so, a little bird (who works at blizzard) told me recently that they're working on a single player component for overwatch. possibly out next year.

It better be for free because I definitely don't feel like my $40.00 went so far with Overwatch, of which I pre-purchased - because I usually pre-purchase all Blizz games & expansions.

Hearts of Stone was a great expansion and I'm loving Blood and Wine. I kinda wish they had made Toussaint the main game now.

I liked the main Witcher 3 game but honestly Hearts of Stone I found to be a little annoying. I'm finding Blood and Wine to be completely awesome though; that's a lot of great content for the asking price.

Also, glad to see DOOM still doing well; with almost no positive pre-publicity which would have spelled DOOM in the sales department for many games.

always phenomenal music team.

Seriously, the WoW sound team is fucking awesome. They've got a team of Stravinsky's for soundtracks and a couple of Brian Eno's for the ambient sound and Sound Light & Magic for creating all of the other sounds. I think that was how I got into WoW, you smoke a joint and you'll get sucked into that shit!
