Are they going to fix the thousands of other games on steam that don't work? #hyperboling

Back in my day Real Men would fix games themselves if they didnt work. Relying on developers to get games running correctly on your siiick custom 486 was something the girly-boys did.

Well back in my day, we'd have this payload delivered already

Overwatch is one of these games I stopped playing and never returned to.. did they ever actually fix this god awful matchmaking in a patch yet?


I've never had an issue with it. What's the exact complaint?

As a skilled solo player there are only 2 types of matches you get from this MM

1 is a single win -> infinite lose streak unless you quit and rejoin due to teams being rigged against you
2 is a join into a losing round

Is it a problem of too much FPS skill pushing me into insane MM ranks and thus weird edge cases? Don't care, I play to have fun, Overwatch regularly matches me against people where I don't have fun if I even so much as play "decently" ;/

Or put simpler, if I play REALLY good 1 or 2 rounds, the game punishes me for it with 5+ rolfstomp losses.. and that ain't fun. Wish I could figure out why that happens to me and not to say, you. Is it my region and thus my ping during the times I play putting me in weird edge cases of match making?

Btw, this happened to me over a dozen times. It annoyed me enough I threw the game (not literally) out of the window.

Wow. That sounds pretty bad. Personally, I have never had anything like that. Most I've had has been maybe 3 win/loss streaks, and it seems like that happens mostly due to one whole team just having an 'off' night or whatever.

Re: Verizon dealie

Reminds me of something they started in my state (WA) a few years ago. Every...I dunno, 6 years or so? I don't remember. You have to get new plates for your vehicle, whether they are damaged or not, due to the possibility of them being worn out. If you want the same plate number, that's an extra fee of course. Just ridiculous.

XCOM2 is $29, only thing standing out.

Oh shit, really? Might be time to buy that, finally.

*EDIT* Also, anybody play Neo Scavenger at all? Tempted to get that also, nice charity setup at IndieGameStand.

I've played it a bit. It's like a choose-your-own-adventure or gamebook type thing. It's highly regarded, but didn't quite do it for me. I did think it was pretty interesting; however, it uses permadeath, so some games can be over very quickly.

The mystery hero brawl game mode should be available all the time. This is the one that randomly selects your character at start and when you die. It's great for forcing people to learn more than just 4-5 characters. It's unbalanced but still fun for learning the game.

I am liking the Weekly Brawls. And that one was damn hard. You'd end up with teams that just didn't work. Still good fun though. I do like the current one too, with only defenders.

Glad I never pulled the plug on this one. Looked really interesting, but after months and months of no updates, I figured I'd wait until it was released.
Sucks for those that threw money into it though.

They should do a CRPG based on the Purge. That'd be hella sweet.

Still need to get around to watching those movies. I'm interested, but just haven't had a chance.

Seconded. Had a lot of fun with the first one, until all the DLC came out, and things were just fragmented. Hard to find a game that wasn't deathmatch, which I'm just not into. Hoping this one will be good.

I ended up having a very nice bug with that quest. I was only level 16 or so, and you end up fighting some level 22 or 24 enemies. I thought I was screwed, but fortunately the guys wouldn't attack me. Took quite a while to take em out, but was able to do it way earlier than I should have.

I don't have the DLC's yet, and not sure when I'll end up getting them. Should they be completed after the main game? Or are they more like a go-ahead-and-do-it-whenever-you-want kind of thing?

I hope they decide to do something with TV Sports Boxing, I played that game to death in the early 1990s (aka ABC Wide World of Sports Boxing). For those that never played that game, it was ported to the Sega Genesis as Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing.

I got TV Spots Football with my first PC in 1989. It was pretty terrible unfortunately.

That's good to know. I used to love Holyfield's boxing. Made an ugly-ass green freak that was super strong, but fizzled out quickly.

Updated, and now the game won't start anymore. Get a Hook MatchesCountError. Great...

Edit: If you run into this problem, you can fix it by renaming the dsound.dll file in your Witcher3/bin/x64 folder.

Were you running the developer console mod? If so, that would be the issue. I'll have to do the same, or wait for an update to that.

Couple months ago my wife upgraded to a Galaxy S7, which came with a free GearVR. I've messed around with it a few times (and I do have glasses), but I experience the same as you. After a bit my head just kills me. It does have a focus knob, so I figured I'd try it without glasses. Seems ok, but I couldn't dial it in just right.
For what it is, though, it's a cool little thing. Once things mature more (and I get to a point where I could afford an upgrade that would run one), I'd love to get a Rift or a Vive.

On a side note, I'm kinda kicking myself for not getting Lasik years ago. At the time, there was a place in the area that was starting up, so what they did was work with our insurance to drop the cost to what insurance covered, making it no cost out of pocket. There were a few people at work who did it, and loved it. I was just way too hesitant though.
Fast forward to today, and it's just way out of my range. The insurance I have now essentially doesn't cover it at all.
