Gold sellers and gold farmers will have a field day

I don't know, ever since the end of the previous expansion you've been able to redeem gold for tokens. Some people even saved up over a dozen tokens (due to gold being very easy to get until this last expansion).

This is more of.. keeping the money flowing within their own games. Now you can play WoW, or are kept more "interested" in playing WoW, to earn more gold, to get a token to redeem for more WoW time, to play and make more gold, to get a token to redeem for "free" (lol) Overwatch boxes.

News Comments > Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Beta Testing
1. Re: Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Beta Testing Feb 3, 2017, 21:23 Rhett
 
This game is awful. The beta too.. this really should have been a closed beta test, not a public demo. It looks cool, but it has so many issues...

Here's a steam key for the beta (Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3) if anyone wants it: WQZD2-@YA27-Q6B@P (replace '@' with 'X')

Meanwhile, Ghost Recon is badass!

During a beta for Wildlands, after a beta of For Honor, during the Rainbow Six Siege or whatever-the-hell Invitational event... I bet people who got tickets are quite flustered lol.

Oh, also during the beta for (and this one kinda baffles me), Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. Same days as GR:W. Pretty busy weekend!

Legitimately tempted to get this season pass... Game is so fun. And I hate fighting games!

News Comments > PAYDAY 2 and Shadow Warrior 2 Crossover
2. Re: PAYDAY 2 and Shadow Warrior 2 Crossover Jan 31, 2017, 21:19 Rhett
 
It's basically cop-killing simulator. Much more so than GTA. Cop-killing horde mode for the most part.

Not sure why they're mixing the two though... Love Shadow Warrior, but hate PAYDAY.

News Comments > ARK: Survival Evolved Patch Adds Tek Content
12. Re: ARK: Survival Evolved Patch Adds Tek Content Jan 31, 2017, 17:41 Rhett
 
It's actually a pretty sweet game, but it has so many underlying issues, and the devs are far more concerned with content than long term fixes sadly.

Used to run a very popular server for most of last year (it was up for a year), but a lot of the back-end stuff requires 3rd party apps and buggy coding to make it work. Simple admin support was very limited. Dunno about now, but according to the patch notes, it's not much better.

Also all of the DLC stuff is usable without the DLC. That's mostly to play on a new island specifically with DLC stuff. Admins can still modify their servers to use these dinos (and everyone can play with them) without the DLC. But that depends on the server and admins.

This jetpack stuff though... Yikes. Game already has a huge time investment if you're serious about the game, and these things will create some nasty PVP scenarios I think. It was hard enough balancing PVP on our server because of all the shit devs keep putting in, but this looks pretty bad.

I wish they would add more to the co-op. It's been completely ignored since launch, besides the new maps (and usable operators I guess).

Why though? haha. There's a closed beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands that starts Friday through the weekend... Then For Honor's open beta after that.. Weird timing. Also the R6 event/invitational/whatever the hell during the Ghost Recon beta.

I don't get the popularity of this toon game.

Why the mass appeal?

A great blend of FPS, MOBA-esque hero abilities, and plenty of skill ceiling, I gather. Plus the characters, maps, performance etc are all on point. It's a $40 game that has really good content, free map releases, zero "pay to win" (though it does have "loot boxes" you can get for cosmetics), constant patching, no paid characters to buy (all free, forever)...

Though I admit I haven't played in months, but it appeals to a LOT of people.

Farcry: Ghost Recon,

yeh exactly - lookin forward to this one for sure

might be one of those rare day one purchase.. beta will tell me more

Only issues I really came across that bugged me was no cover system like The Division, and vehicles driving was a little wonky (like Sleeping Dogs), so if the Beta holds up will be a day 1 purchase.

There is a "light" cover system at least. Your character visibly lightly attaches to cover/walls, but yeah, there's no visual indicator to go cover to cover or anything.

Lots of good videos and stuff on the subreddit for anyone looking for more info/gameplay:

https://www.reddit.com/r/GhostRecon/

TL;DR looks a lot like GTA: Bolivia, or Farcry: Ghost Recon, haha. Still very pumped for it.

I imagine we'll know next week if we got into the beta. Beta invites also come with 3 friend invites as well, just like For Honor.

Eh... similar note, I went and opened my one free box for the event, and got 500 credits and a lunar Ana skin (purple), so that was worthwhile at least.

Haven't actually played the game in months, just log in for these free boxes haha.

Definitely not worth having to deal with the shitty microsoft store, and its stupid rules. Last I checked, can't even move games (Gears 4) to another drive without having to re-download it. And that game alone is 70+ GB.

Guess we'll wait and see. Their multiplayer free DLC worked quite well for ME3, and ME2 really garnered a lot of hate for the bioware points business...

Well I'm looking forward to it anyway... Also, hype for multiplayer again! Can't be any worse than some devs have been lately with microtransactions, if they handle it like the last game.
