Looks pretty good still, with some noticeable ripoffs homages to Diablo 3, Path of Exile and possibly Torchlight 2 in there.

I'll probably try it out at some point; the queue really cannot be defeated anymore though.

News Comments > Battlefield 1 Winter Update
8. Re: Battlefield 1 Winter Update Feb 15, 2017, 09:39 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Played a little bit last night...aside from the obvious ribbons, didn't notice a huge difference anywhere, except for:

You cannot spawn into tanks/aircraft now, until AFTER everybody loads in. (for conquest, 15 players per team need to have loaded, etc.)

It's annoying, but I didn't really play enough rounds to make up my mind yet. Theoretically it'll make it more 'fair' for people trying to take a vehicle, but if you don't even have a SSD at this point, don't waste our tanks.

Class rank moved up to 50?!? They better not relock all the guns/items you get up to 10, ie. spread them out for more of a grind.

I'm at work so I can't check, but I still haven't even gotten Scout to 10, it's almost always more beneficial for me to play another class or drive a tank.

A chance to get The Witness, Stardew Valley, Subnautica, and Invisible Inc. AND give to the ACLU AND have Humble match my donation???

HELL YEAH!!!

Middlefinger

Yeah, very good bundle, I didn't even own everything in it yet.

Almost no shovelware titles, only Overgrowth is arguably a waste, and that game theoretically might get finished one day.

This game looks fairly interesting, from a gameplay/design standpoint, but hopefully the online related bullshit is all optional. D3 Seasons ripoff, clans voting, other stuff has been mentioned in a couple spots.

ARPGs will almost always get a test play from me, but the competition is pretty well established. I'm done with D3, but Grim Dawn has matured very nicely; they should be releasing another 2 classes this year.

Alpha or pre-alpha gameplay videos look a little slow though...I'm not going to bother playing Early Access, but hopefully a ton of people playtest it before I get to it.

Somebody mentioned in another thread on this game, it's the same company who made Van Helsing? Definitely looks like a slightly updated version of that engine, which I found to be a bit clunky and unoptimized, at least in the first two games. I need to try that Director's Cut or whatever re-release version still.

"Rebel Scum." -British Space Nazi.

I need to go back and finish this game... one of many I've wandered off from halfway through. There are just too many games out.

Into the Badlands season 2 looks fucking awesome tho

Oh shit, I forgot all about that show...Wikipedia says March 19th for the premiere of the second season, nice.

Yeah, they actually got some real martial artists in ItB, martial artists who are also surprisingly good athletes, ie. Daniel Wu. Some of the supporting cast, not so much, but the fight choreographer was excellent in the first season, so it worked most of the time.

Did people forget that it's Communist China? The same guys that ordered tanks to roll over people in Tiananmen Square are (mostly) still around. They just make a lot more money now. Chinese teens should probably be thankful the powers that be have mellowed out so much.

I'm going to try and see this tomorrow(opening day), which is something I almost never do... usually I wait a week or two for the crowds to thin out.

Let the cinema gods bless me with no screaming babies, cellphone talkers, or loud commentators!

So the PS4 (regular) version bundles are for a weaker processor/gpu and smaller hard drive? Dastardly!

tl,dr: Get off my lawn, damn kids.

I'll probably watch Iron Fist, as I'm reasonably sure it's required by US law and international treaty for me, but it seems like it'll be an uphill battle.
Would rather watch it as a movie than have it in series form. Trailer definitely made it seem bruce wayneish, except for the glow in the dark fist, batmans glove could fix that.

Joking aside, I assume Netflix won't have the balls to go with the traditional bright green and yellow Iron Fist costume. He'll end up in some muted-color leather/plastic crap for sure.

I've enjoyed the Netflix Marvel series, but Luke Cage was pretty meh.

I thought Luke Cage was pretty good, arguably better than Daredevil. Not counting the Daredevil episodes with the Punisher, but definitely a stronger first season than Daredevil's. (Opinions will differ!)

As an old school comics nerd though... this guy is NOT Iron Fist. He's even worse than the guy they got to play Daredevil, physically... neither one is even close to the character. Of course, they have to find people who can actually act, so what can you do?

Danny Rand is a cheap knock off of Bruce Wayne in a lot of ways too, but then again these shows aren't marketed towards people who read comics, this is more for the 'new' generation of Marvel movie fans.

So, is this game any good, or is it a hive of scum and villainy, with a toxic community of elitist jerks?

I missed out on trying it on the free weekend.

Ohh, and let's not forget that these 'poor' people probably have cars, cell phones, air conditioning, free education, a place to live, computers, consoles and the list goes on.

Wow, a place to live, and cell phones! Fuck those people! (This is sarcasm, by the way)

Air conditioning is required depending on where you live, and I question whether or not the poor strawman in your example would actually have cars, computers, consoles, or especially *truly* free education. Certainly not in modern day America.

That said, it figures that the major ISPs would try to loophole out of actually providing any sort of internet service to the poor, as your second link claims.

The first link however, seems to me that the amount of the subsidy needs to increase, NOT that it should be abolished entirely. Oh well, welcome to Openly Corporate America.

Ugh, that has to be in the top 10 worst decisions in gaming... cancelling an Obsidian-made Aliens rpg and going with Colonial Marines instead.

Luckily RPGs are back in a big way anyway, but oh, woe for the lost opportunity.
