Hahaha they are still using that shit? I remember that crap from the XBL days too and even Microsoft ditched the "Points" bullshit. Give it up already Bioware, geez.

They did give up, but for whatever reason never updated some of their old titles to stop using points. SO even if you do bite the bullet and buy the points you need, you better try to get exactly as many as you need, because if you have any left over, nothing will use them again, ever. I'm pretty sure this odd marketing agreement with Bioware/points is why we never got a complete version of ME2, 3 or Dragon Age 2.

The ME2 DLC ranges from interesting to very good, but I wouldn't qualify it as essential to enjoy the game. There's certainly plenty to do in the "base" game that you get for free.

All of this is oddly why I stuck with the Xbox for Mass Effect and Dragon Age. I would have honestly preferred to play them on the PC, but it always seemed like a horrible decision...

I feel like the Roadhog change was needed, but I really haven't played enough lately to comment on the others. I only really came back when the holiday event started.

I guess EA are the only ones winning on these giveaways.
You don't "have" to dig anywhere, and they only "win" if you make the choice to buy DLC... There are plenty of people happy to play the free game and leave it at that.

It appears the DLC is free with this at least.

Is anyone still playing this?

I hadn't played it in some time, but when I logged on for the holiday event it was easily the quickest queues since launch. Seemed very active.

If you switched from Android to Apple, you'd have to repurchase all of your apps, at probably 3-5x the cost you initially paid for them.

1) You would either have to pirate or pay to switch either way.
2) Most apps cost exactly the same, so I have no idea where you get the "3-5x the cost you initially paid for them". I assume you just made that up.

I don't mean to alarm anyone, but I've encountered an unidentified 1st-class term that was being used liberally in a Battlefront match the other night. When one individual killed another, instead of the classic "pwned" or modern flavor "rekt", these gentlemen would say: "you just got woke".

"you got woke" is on the rise, you've all been warned.

What... what does that even mean?


EDIT: Oh and salty new year! Just for Cutter.

In this game afai can see, if you feed you kill. No matter your whether your playing good or evil. It seems a ridiculous, since vampires obviously need living healthy humans. Lore which kills every time you feed obviously destroys your food source, duh.

do you keep your steak alive after you are done eating it, somehow?

Well yes, obviously. Waste not, want not. Is bovine necromancy no longer in vogue?

I kind of like the new MacBooks (non-Pro), but that is about it. Their lineup just isn't very impressive right now. I still have a 17" 2008 MBP which works fine for me, but El Cap is going to be the last version of OS X that supports it, so I may have to jump ship soon.

It has been a great machine, but Apple seems to be more about silly LED bars and making everything tablet like now.

No idea why Gamespot is just now posing that. Microsoft usually releases the next month's titles ~28th of the prior month. At this point the first offers have already expired.

it's definitely awesome to watch no matter the side (or who's dyin').

I hadn't been following the news on this patch and actually thought that was some sort of new map mechanic the first time I saw it

I is pretty neat to watch.

When it's free to play, nothing in it has any value to me whatsoever. Without binding me to a game through a purchase, you won't bind my perception of value to the game.

If it helps I can charge you $60 for it.

If you'd like a look at what this is going to look like, check out this video:

I can't wait to play it...



AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I was expecting a MechWarrior running the Unreal 5 6 or whatever the latest engine is... Not expecting that :/

Still, a proper modern TBS of this is welcome as well..

Proper TBS + MechWarrior you say? Consider my interest piqued.

We have Five Guys, but they are new here and I have not had them.

They are worth a look, though I am not sure how that would impact your diet. The burgers are delicious, just make sure and get the little burger. It is more than enough food IMO. They also usually give you a giant paper bag of fries so I guess go light there as well.

Back Yard Burger is healthier than most, but it is still a fast food burger joint. I think they are only in the SE US currently.

Big Macs are a guilty pleasure of mine, used to allow myself 1 a month. I haven't had one in over 2 years.....there is just to much information about fast food to allow myself to eat it. I have enough bad habits that will kill me, I had to drop some along the way....

Enjoy the little things in life. I doubt a once a month burger has been the dying regret of anyone ever. That said, maybe consider In-N-Out, Backyard Burger, Shake Shack, or Five Guys instead of a McDonalds if you really want the gluttony to be worth it.

Yeah. That's a good sign. Still early access and giving it away for free to boost the population

It isn't bad, I think they are just trying to get the word out wherever they can as the game hasn't received much press (from what I have seen).

It was free with Amazon prime recently, but that required the Twitch client which I am not a fan of. If this version only requires Steam I will give it another go. It is a nice change of pace.
