Enjoying this one. Costs about $1000 less than the cardboard addiction.

re:How My Boyfriend Made Me Fall in Love With Gaming.

I guess this is like a harlequin article for male nerds?

I have an excellent source for a companion article, she would write "How my boyfriend helped me confirm I have no interest in video games"

Whats the point of even doing an update. A seven year old could have pierced through the guile of these lying investment banker wank rags back when they first trotted out that they were moving forward with the dystopia as planned.

Maybe. But part of it is coincidence too. Your endoresement system was released at a time when people were already tired of your shit, and burned out, and just play quickplay now because they just don't care anymore.

My pet theory is that this just gives something to do at the end of a match. Usually you're sitting there stewing in the potg that murdered your squad and getting gold with 2 kills, so its easy to lash out. This just distracts people long enough to get into the next match.

Blizzard old yellered HOTS, they went about this the worst possible way. I understand scaling back if you can't break through into the LOL DOTA size, but instead they just turned the table over like an angry 6 year old. Well I guess this was bound to happen anyway with those layoffs that landed today.

On a positive note I'm enjoying this now on the platform it was made for - PS4. The auction house self detonation kept me off of it on PC but couch coop is smooth as butter on the sony gaming gnome.

lol the auction house hasn't been around for YEARS. You also cannot say the platform it was made for. It was NEVER made for console. It got babied to be consolefied with the controls.

The game came out on PC back in like 1995 and then part 2, finally 3 many years later. It was always a PC game first, and then console to collect more $$$ for Blizzard's pockets.

Woosh!

I think its pretty fun still. Its not going to overtake the big boys and they every rework makes support more boring somehow but I can get three pretty low stress games in during an hour and thats not something the other MOBAs can say at all.

Re: Guitar Hero,

Much like steam, if what you own is dependent on someone's continued good will in regards to servers and content hosting, you effectively own nothing.

On the other hand, paying a couple bucks once for going on a decade rental of games now has been a pretty good deal. But Valve is more reliable than Activision and Sony (recently shuttered Gravity servers).

Im going to guess it was related to how swingy the objective can be, since it takes concentrated effort. Often one big tree gets popped right away and the other sits untouched for awhile. This results in dead air in the match while everyone 5v5s next to some fort.

re:Beamer

Sure the "Grandma and Jr. needs a computer" demo is probably saturated/fading, but it seems like gaming is still pretty healthy and despite twenty years of effort there's still no real competitor to Windows there. Nearly every "innovation" by Microsoft in the OS space has kind of made it worse for us anyway.

The big coup which this article doesn't really talk about was, imo, was when Apple got their ecosystem in. Tons of people think Apple is the UberBlack gateway to the internet. They had a chance to tap into the video game stream but they shied away from hardware solutions as usual and the Mac game situation remains pretty dire even on year 40.

After reading about everything, no strong feelings about Price (she's obviously slightly toxic although that seems pretty par for the course on twitter? And she's clearly being brigaded against), but I'm always surprised by how many people support corporations when it comes to gaming.

No, but perhaps they should? I pay 70 bucks a month to use ~ 700 Gigs or so. The cost of them delivering that 700 Gigs is literally 0.7 dollars. So how about AT&T kicks in 20 bucks to a content provider pool?


This is an interesting idea, kind of like the way Prime memberships float the Twitch boat a little bit, although I doubt the current ISPs could pull it off well.
