News Comments > Out of the Blue
10. Re: Out of the Blue May 18, 2016, 17:14 Wallshadows
 
My first computer had a 300a. The dealership we bought it from was shady as hell too because they charged us a fuck ton of money to 'upgrade' our processor but in reality only overclocked it which is likely why we had to bring it in to the shop every other week because it kept crashing. This is also where my hatred of Elite Group began because on top of the constant crashing we had to replace the motherboard three or four times since, in their infinite wisdom, they kept using the same EG boards.

I had a meaty Diamond Viper v550 though. Played Delta Force online with dial-up like a boss when it wasn't in the shop.

MMOs that fail at making you feel like an integral part of the world tend to have a hard time holding my attention. Heck, any game that fails at that would be hard pressed to keep my attention. When I am "just another grunt" there really isn't any reason to care about the character.

I feel the opposite, to be honest. I prefer being rolled in to a group of ambiguous 'adventurers' or 'heroes' who have done good deeds in the past but are more or less background noise within the current world. It fits more in line with an MMO whereas being a Commander in Warlords makes little to no sense since you're not treated as such. Taking orders from those beneath your rank, being sent out on quests to collect hides, playing delivery boy and the countless other players who fill the exact same role removes the feeling you should get when being given such rank and the power it should come with.

Now in Legion, we're literally playing as the chosen one to lead our Class in to battle but not until we kill eight Kobolds, gather ten bear hides, and deliver a message to an Innkeeper.

I wonder what AMD will have up their sleeve to counter this. The 1080 is an absolute monster and the 1070 will likely have that price range by the balls.

The shooty shooty bang bang gun play is more like guerilla warfare where you mainly focus on ambushes with an emphasis on hit and run as it's fairly unforgiving. I'm sure this alone will turn a lot of people off but I too have heard it being compared to Far Cry.

Would this provide the same benefit for my 280 or are there diminishing returns the further down the totem poll you go?

Why should I spend a premium on a I5 56324097k when I could just poach a 2500K for far less to blow my AMD rig out of the water? Jesus Christ on a bike.

Having J.Allen Brack be the go to guy for this whole debacle is the problem. Guy is a huge prick for the whole 'you think you want it but you don't' and has done nothing but fabricate bullshit answers or deflect discussions about it because it'll somehow bruise his ego.

Yeah, I think it comes to $42 CAD on G2A with their 52% Paypal sale. Not too shabby for a AAA title at launch when the non-sale norm is hitting $80+.

News Comments > Overwatch Beta Cheaters Banned
2. Re: Overwatch Beta Cheaters Banned May 13, 2016, 10:56 Wallshadows
 
I hope they add these dickheads to some kind of black list which basically revokes any chance they get to receive a beta invite from Blizzard. Better yet, hardware ban them so they can't even use third party keys and ban their friends too with a message saying 'your friend xxxxxxx is a dickhead and got you banned'.

I'm not that interested in Overwatch but the fucking audacity to cheat in any closed testing where invites are limited deserves to be punished in the most extreme way. Scorched earth policy.

For anyone who does get it, please let us know how the single player portion of the game is. I wouldn't buy this for the multi but I might for the campaign...

If they did an expansion in regards to 'the depths' then you're really asking for what every one has been asking for for ages now with an Azshara/N'zoth expansion that takes place in the South Seas.

Only if they allow Naga to be a playable race.

And Ogres.

I have a strong feeling it's the next one planned. Not only because we're running out of lore figures to kill and locations to exploit but also because Azshara and her Naga have some form of story taking shape alongside that of the Legion in regards to stealing the Pillars of Creation but are doing it in their own interests. Since Chronicles, Azshara and N'zoth would also be a great way to further introduce and flesh out the Void Lords story.

That or they could take the Blingtron story which has been decoded.

Wait... so, doesn't TOR have like 8 different stories you can choose to follow? Like Sith Lord or Jedi Master or Bounty Hunter or whatever? So how does that work with these Outlander expansions then? Is that a different character?


Think of it more as a title than an actual class.

Your skills do not change and you still earn talents and such to fill in for your class. You're simply called the Outlander within the Fallen Empire because you're an outsider and you've taken it upon yourself to throw wrenches in their gears because cliched overpowered empire in unknown space is dangerous.

Your class story is wrapped up/paused at 60 which then focuses on you being the Outlander until 65.

Who needs Resident Evil 7 when Resident Evil 2 remake is on the way.

Without having played Revelations, fuck everything that came out after Code Veronica IMO.

The game is already hitting close to 50% off on some e-tailers. That sure as shit doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Bethesday wants to sell as many copies as they can as fast as they can before suspicions of it being a terrible game turn in to truths.
