Yeah, there's a discount on the "expansion pass," which apparently is just a bundle of those two already-released ones? Because it does not include the third expansion coming out in a couple months. For some reason, that one requires that you own the other expansions in order to buy and play it...

So if you're like me and still only own the base game, you can buy the "expansion pass" for $19.99 (currently discounted from $34.99). But if you're interested in the upcoming expansion that they're saying is supposed to be the best one, you HAVE to buy the "expansion pass" to be eligible to buy the third expansion for another $39.99 (that's about how much I paid for the base game!). THEN if you want any further content beyond that, you've gotta buy the new "annual pass" that includes three releases of "premium content" throughout the next calendar year for another $34.99.

That seems excessive to me.

thing is, if you dont have accounts or logins then who cares? http is fine if you have no data to send to a site. if all you are doing is receiving non sensitive stuff then https isnt mandatory.

I would say yeah to that, except both of the news site I think about (FAZ and SPIEGEL) have payment based content and looooaaaads of ads.... and if the login is https but the content isn't then nothing is HTTPS. Man in the middle attacks work on this angle and can EASILY steal your login details and payment details if a site doesn't go full HTTPS (and thus has cert security and proper DNSse guidelines to prevent DNS spoofing and other nonsense).

Mind you, I know why these sites don't go full HTTPS, but if blues can do it, big IT departments at the major news outlets in Germany can too.

Not even once. Not even for free.

The joke is, free weekend might as well be called a "don't bother if you are European or interested in any sports" event. Because Formula 1 (Silverstone!!!!!) and Soccer Championship including ENGLAND (A must watch) are this weekend

I wonder if that was intentional marketing wise or if they think people playing vidya games don't care for any sports... and yes, I know Tour de France also starts in like 4 hours

TL;DR, that's some majorly retarded time slotting for a free event.

I'm a European and I don't give a flying fuck about some doped up assholes on bicycles nor some boring as fuck race car bullshit nor about the FIFA corruption world cup in fucking Putin commie Russia.

That said, I give even less of a fuck about Destiny 2 so they can have a free weekend every fucking weekend for all I care. Zero fucks given.

You just gave it 5 fucks though and weirdly no dismissive wanks

Also in my case, peer pressure forces me to watch England vs Sweden, and Formula 1 is my fav sport Tour the Doping is a skip for me, but many others it is not. Just saying, if you time slot a free event to maybe sell some shizzle you maybe don't time slot it like.. in the middle of the big 3 sport events in Europe. Yeah, not everyone cares, but it reduces your reach for absolutely no reason. Why not make it a week long promotion? (I know why of course, because you can play through the game in a day..) still.. find it odd

Bioware was releasing mediocre games for quite a while before Mass Effect Andromeda was released.

Could that have maybe had an effect on its sales? Who's to say, speaking for myself I didn't buy it and Im not buying another Bioware game unless it's the bees knees.

But the mass Effect trilogy was the bees knees, nothing made by anyone even comes close (well, with ending mod). It was one of the first RPG's after Gothic 2 and Witcher 3 /Baldurs Gate and Torment, where you had real pay off at the end, where you learned to hate or love characters properly. Compare that to Mass Effect Andromeda where I bet you can't even NAME one character even after playing it twice. Like I honestly can't even remember what the big bad guy was called...

It's why I will always say that Andromeda had the worst writing of any Bioware game, like so fundamentally worse that it transcended from story writing to random noise.

After Nier:Automata especially it just showed how pitiful the writing for Mass Effect Andromeda was. Here you have 1 game with a tiny budget breaking new grounds in how we might think about live and death, AI and what it means to be alive.. and then you have another game with butt ugly characters and no story to speak of aside from a bad guy who does bad things for LITERALLY no reason. As in, his stated reason is in DIRECT opposition to what he is doing.

Gotta admit though Nier released 17th March 2017, Andromeda released 21st March 2017

There is the tiny problem that literally every big game on every platform releasing was just FLAT OUT a better game than Andromeda, and that's what sunk it. The animations? No, not really, they were wonky as fuck but whatever, the story brought it down totally though. That and the god awful writing.

I killed Shroud once, Lirik once, Dr Disrespect 3 times, and Ninja 5 times.

None of them killed me once.

I have video evidence. A bunch of Ninja's followers stormed my channel, apparently after the 4th and 5th time I made him rage and he was calling out my name. Can't wait to get for his stream to end so I can watch that replay over and over a few hundred times ^_^

Oh and I wasn't stream sniping, I saw that they were on conquest servers and tried a few to see if I could get on the same server, but then I closed the feeds, I'm not a douchebag.

Gotta admit that gave me a chuckle Good job. The real question is who won the round though

I wonder if this one will end up being a huge flop.

I used to love playing battlefield games.. but... the way BF1 was handled with the game, support, DLC's etc... im kind of over it.

maybe I'm just getting old.

Nah I feel the same, after BF1 I stopped caring about Battlefield altogether. Skipped Hardline, skipped all expansions for BF1 and skip BF5 wholesale. Dice has lost me as a customer who owned literally every battlefield game prior to BF1 (aside from Hardline). BF1 has not a SINGLE MAP I LIKE so why should I even bother with BF5?

Don't really care if it flops or not though. Dice isn't the Dice that made BF4

Prez wrote on Jun 30, 2018, 12:40:
I have both games on disc around here somewhere... Anyway the first was way too basic and limited, but the second one was a solid and engaging fantasy RTS made cooler by the LOTR wrapper. I can't imagine this ever being allowed to be completed, and I highly doubt any publisher, much less Warner Bros, would be the least bit interested in putting resources into an RTS.

EDIT: Found them! Says they are EA games.

The license is now held by WB though, EA only held it till 2009. It's an interesting question who actually feels responsible here, because I don't think WB even cares about the game license. Sure haven't done anything with it.

I think VAR has helped make matches fairer. There have still been questionable decisions but there have been some important corrections.

FIFA have released their analysis of VAR in the group stage. 95% of decisions were correct before VAR reviews, 99.3% correct after.

It's always the outliers we humans notice ,) 99.3% is good enough, but it doesn't mean the refereeing was "fair". The real question would be how many actual fouls had not been called and how many 100% cards were not given.

In the end it's just another factor, but until an AI decides it will vary per referee, and that is unfair if it plays in a "fairplay" rating. Or if teams intentionally play totally passive because they aim for no cards/injuries. (Denmark vs France, Japan vs Poland)

Oh well, today KO games start where the decisions (right or wrong..) will be FAR more game deciding

Watched Shroud play this yesterday.
His first map playing he cracks off something like 30 sniper quickscope headshots and ended up going like 48-8 at #1 by almost 10,000 points.
The man is an FPS god, doesn't even matter what the game is.
I played Ratz: Instagib with him some months back, it's roughly equivalent to the various Q3 instagib mods I played for years. He destroyed the whole server, some of which who were clearly old instagib pros. It's nuts.

I came here to post virtually exactly the same thing. Shroud fuckin owns. His first game of BFV ever and he destroys it. With that said, I did notice the distinct lack of absolutely any teamplay in the two or three games I watched him play of BFV. Not from him in particular, since he even went out of his way to pick up fallen allies, but from most of the people he played with.

Pretty sure quick scoping is gonna be nerfed, if they leave it in like this nobody is gonna play weapons that only do 18 damage per hit
