"So what's the difference fundamentally between the Witch Doctor and the Necromancer?"

"Setting fluff! And they're more goth really."

Sigh. Nice to see Blizzard schlepping under the bar again.

I played it for a few hours. The handling is abysmal. I like open world games but I cannot see myself playing this. I just hope that the handling in Horizon 3 is better but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Next racer I'll probably try is Assetto Corsa. Project Cars' handling is pretty good but there are still some problems like brakes never locking up etc.

It's an arcade racer. As you level up and upgrade the car the handling gets better. But you have to drive shit for a while. If you're looking at Assetto Corsa you're in a completely different genre.

10 million in total have tried it, sure. I mean, it was free on the Xbox, free on the PC. People will definitely give it a go.

But actual people playing was maybe a few hundred on the xbone.

That said, it's a fun, though flawed, game. For free, it's a no-brainer.

The story is terribad.

And I really don't like how F2P the expansion feels. There's all these integrations and shit and prompts to do things and you go try to do them and it smashes you up against a 30 dollar paywall. It's frustrating because I don't feel like I have a complete product even though theoretically I totally do.

I was having fun with it for a while. Life got busy and I stopped playing. I intend to go back but haven't had the time.

Necromancer would be a nice addition...

I'd personally like to see a new play style class. Necro is awful close to the witch doctor pet build.

But considering that Blizzard is allergic to anything that wasn't conceptually created 5+ years ago Necromancer is highly likely.

Just Hillary having a practice run at cutting internet on anyone with dissenting views over her.

That might carry slightly more water if Wikileaks and Assange weren't foreign agents interfering in the election/proper government operations... by leaking documents suggesting that foreign entities might be interfering in government operations.

Its called putting the truth out on a lying corrupt piece of garbage.

Just wait till you see (and choose to ignore and or justify) all the criminal activity being released about the Clinton machine today.

Not that the Marxist "main stream media" will cover it. These things don't comply with their brain washing agenda.

So you're advocating an ends-justify-the-means approach to show the world that someone is an ends-justify-the-means politician.

You do get the epic levels of hypocrisy here don't you?

Sad to see the game became abandonware. It was a lot of fun. I played the shit out of it when it launched and eventually dropped about 20 bucks into it because it was fun. The F2P part was not terrible because your basic weapons still were pretty effective and you could grind relatively quickly if you had a direction you wanted to go in. I spent 20 bucks and really was able to unlock all the classes and weapons I wanted to and was pretty satisfied by that.

I'm curious how many people are running 32-bit binaries of Elite because reasons/ignorance and not because they're running 32-bit windows?

I agree with the earlier post though. It's absurd that you can still order a 32-bit version of windows 10.

Yeah imagine if they actually managed a simultaneous launch. They would have sold a bajillion of them.

Why did the arguably better game not sell more copies than the worse game in the same genre from five years ago?

Dude do you remember the ad campaign for Skyrim? They saturated almost every media with ads for the game.

If CDPR dropped a hundred million on advertising their game, the numbers might have been closer.

I just hope this update doesn't break compatibility with the thousands of community-made tracks on customforge.

Amen to that. Probably not though they could have patched that out ages ago if they really wanted to.

This is a fun tool for learning guitar (and bass) parts. I wish they would have added the 'career' mode that was available in the original, original Rocksmith (i.e. not the original Rocksmith 2014). Adding some Van Halen or Led Zeppelin DLC tracks would open my wallet and crank my PC speakers up to 110%.


There is a massively thriving customDLC scene for Rocksmith.

http://customsforge.com/

You'll find Van Halen & Led Zeppelin in there. THey take down tracks that have official versions but otherwise there are thousands of tracks. You need to own Cherub Rock DLC though for it to work.

It's amazing how much refund dummy spitting is going on about this game. $60 is hardly a massive sum of money (for anyone that chose to buy it in the first place) and the game has plenty to see past the two hour mark. If the game didn't work for you, fair enough. But that said, a little patience and a patch later and you might have been up and running quick smart.

To be fair, a little patience and a few patches later, and the game probably will be had for 30 bucks instead of 60. Why should I give devs more money than a game is worth and then not play it?

I am still shocked that people were so hyped(this was supposedly most hyped game ever) over this pile of garbage. I never followed this much or even knew its coming, but after I seen it, I am wondering how did this get so much hype? lol Its pure pile of garbage.

Because you can go from planet to planet, land on planet, no load screens. It is basically god just being able to do that... they act like.

I remember when Dungeon Siege was big news because it had no loading screens once you got into the game.

Angry Joe just put up his review (yesterday) and...pretty much summed up everything that's been said so far from each side and corner of every camp surrounding this game. I don't think anyone can really put this whole disaster into better terms. He got me to the point that >I< wanted to march right over to 'Hello Games', grab Sean Murray and shake the shit out of him, asking 'What the fuck were you thinking, man?!? Where's the rest of the game?!'...*points to the trailers playing on screen* 'Where is that game?!?'

Check it if you haven't already... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTTPlqK8AnY


=-Rigs-=

On the other side of things there's a kotaku article about how it's the public's fault for building up NMS to be some kind of ultimate god game. It pretty much glosses over the years worth of promises and demos on screen that the devs put out and blames players for expecting things they were told repeatedly would be there, as well as what was shown in demos.

It was insulting, smug, and pissed me off. I don't even own the game and I feel like the article managed to insult me. So I scrolled up to see who wrote it.

Seeing Nathan Grayson's name there suddenly made it make a lot more sense. I think the dude hates the industry he works in.

I tried to watch... I really did.

I made it like 30 seconds. I don't think I even got to where they started interviewing her before I turned it off. Bad dubstep and dudes in grippies underwear with a unicorn mask on. I think that sums her up pretty succinctly.

I ran out of fucks to give and turned it off.

The problems I see are as follows:

If you don't have easy access to a stop you're SOL. Your lucky if the distance tracker grabs half of what you actually do. The nearby thing doesn't really work. Many stops and gyms are in places that are dangerous or require trespassing. GPS spoofing is easy and makes most of the previously mentioned problems non-existant, but it ruins the game in other ways. The pay system is expensive when you considered how fast you would go through the materials (specially if you don't have access to a stop, aka players not in an urban area are screwed.)

Not to mention the thing eats my goddamn phone battery for lunch.

Plus I found it boring compared to geocaching.

Sure why not? Blizzard is basically porting every idea they ever had into every other game they make.

I expect to see Demon Hunters in Overwatch in the next year.
