News Comments > Heroes of the Storm Maps Return; Butcher Not OP
6. Re: Heroes of the Storm Maps Return; Butcher Not OP Jul 8, 2015, 12:55 loomy
 
blizzard employees are always smug shitty bastards. here's the truth about the butcher:

https://www.hotslogs.com/Sitewide/HeroDetails?Hero=The+Butcher

click "All Leagues" and set it to any skill level you want. look at the level 20 skill win rates at the bottom. the top Butcher build has a 62-68% win rate in all skill levels. and it GROWS in higher ranks, rather than shrinks.

hotslogs is an approximation, but there is a lot of data there, and it makes a lot of sense. most other heroes have good win rates when you look at the same stat, so I'm not sure how hotslogs is processing the data or exactly what it means. but it doesn't seem to line up with blizzard to me.

what blizzard employees neglect to mention is that new heroes have a price premium and "accidentally" making them a little too good is good for the bottom line.

It is, without a doubt, pay to win. I love the MechWarrior universe but even it was too much for me.

good post. I've never played, but I imagine the developers should cap each team to the same value. 1 heavy + 1 light mech versus 2 mediums, etc. or even make each team equal: x heavies on both teams, etc.

this guy was hired to work directly for chris roberts... reporting to chris roberts... doing the work of chris roberts... at the mercy of chris roberts.

I don't know if he quit or was fired, but I know he had an impossible job. leaders like chris roberts are unstoppable forces until success or self destruction.

delays like this happen constantly in software development. someone plugs system A into system B and realizes system A is too shitty to handle it. cue rebuilding system A. and guess what happens when system A2 plugs into system B1.....

this is only news because he's telling you about it

if someone doesn't attempt to mix things up (valve and nvidia are now) we'll be stuck with windows forever

of course it's not great now. neither was the first of anything

leaked ship information for a game which releases new ship information every week = most uninteresting and least newsworthy "leak" ever

you might as well fistfuck yourself than care about this

the hardware is not the problem. there is almost nothing to DO with it

normal games are not compatible with VR in the way people imagine, so everything must be new

strange how the damage effect on screen is a red aura. this seems like a bloodless cartoon kid-style game to me, and so it might be better suited to a black knock-out effect rather than mortal kombat blood

News Comments > Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint
3. Re: Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint May 11, 2015, 09:32 loomy
 
alien isolation has less than 10 hours of good gaming in it. they should have spent less on a shorter, better game.

the "crew expendable" DLC is probably the best experience in the game, and it's less than an hour long. I wish they had found a way to charge $20 for multiple mini-games like this, rather than $60 for a bloated monstrosity with great experiences hid behind DLC.

here, skip the game and just watch these:

last survivor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w93clj43qsU

News Comments > Elite: Dangerous Steam Keys For All Players Coming
5. Re: Elite: Dangerous Steam Keys For All Players Coming May 8, 2015, 23:10 loomy
 
I'm curious about the goings-on behind the scenes, because I assume the generation of a steam key for an existing sale requires frontier to pay valve the steam-fee, the same as if the game was bought on steam! Which would mean that adding this feature would subtract money from frontier!

POE has an economy and D3 has some sort of mutant WOW design. while the fundamentals are the same (grind monsters to death and put on new clothing), everything of substance is different

YOU CAN TRADE IN POE! TRADE! AMAZING!

If I liked diablo 2, will I like this? Basically a average weekend of diablo 2 consisted of joining games named Baal Run 1 through 700 ;D

I'm happy to inform you that POE is a spiritual successor to Diablo. POE is part of the new generation wave of old-school PC games: It's sketchy, it's difficult, it's kind of ugly, and it's awesome.
