Slow it? No. You can hit space to pause, and queue up attacks with your team members.

That slows it!! Thanks.

Ah. Thought you meant slow as in Pillars reduced combat speed.

I haven't had that, but I have had issues with him that are similar. Namely Discord and the healing orb. I've gotten to the point where I don't just press E or shift, but hammer them until something happens. No issues like that with any other heroes though. Really odd.

Looked pretty good, and I had some money in my Steam wallet, so I picked it up. Just got through the prologue, and it seems pretty good.
Skills are given through gear, as opposed to learning them with your character.
Crafting seems like it'll be a big deal.
Limited (but generous) inventory.
Merchants don't have limited gold, so you can sell everything to one person.
Real time combat with pause.
Story seems decent so far.
Runs super smooth.

DX12 version just crashes to desktop trying to load my save. Unchecked DX12 in options, loaded my game fine. Just updated my drivers too.

OBS NVEnc to the rescue https://obsproject.com

I've tried OBS a couple times, but I just cannot get a good, consistent quality. Either it's choppier than hell, or I get audio with no video. Probably has something to do with my not-so-great system, but I'll probably try it again.
Been using plays.tv (R9 270X here), and I get better results, but still has some choppiness.

i wasnt crazy about it the first few rounds, seemed slow and battlefronty like a console game, but after playing some more i think its excellent and a worthy successor to 4

just not sure about pre-order at these prices... $70 with all the bonuses and minus the season pass or $130 for all, and estimated 05.2017 for the first map pack in the season pass

If you have Amazon Prime, you get it for $47.99. I like it quite a bit, and have been thinking about taking the plunge. Not really sure yet though.

I'd go for the 7 day trial just to see how it is, as I've always wanted to play The Last of Us, but no. I'm not buying a $50 controller for it. And I know I won't go with the subscription either.
Overall, an interesting idea, but I have a feeling it won't pan out well.

Just started it last night, and got through what I would call the prelude. Pretty damn cool so far. New outfits/armor looks pretty good too.

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.

True, true. Glad I never pulled the 'trigger'. Thanks for the correction Helf
