I am overwhelmed.

I am trying to do the Black Desert Online beta, play Street Fighter V, and now this?

My birthday was back on the 11th...it's like game developers are giving me a bunch of belated gifts...

That goblin frenzy happened in CBT1 too and I didn't have any lag or glitches either. Really kind of amazing since my machine is more middle of the road....I would have expected hiccups or even have to scale things back on the graphics. Everything was smooth so I hacked away with the rest of the sharks in the frenzy.

I screwed up this morning though...I forgot I had to redownload CBT2 because CBT1 is a different beast. Tried to login and the servers wouldn't recognize my client. So here I am...downloading...

Gaga for Bowie. I think he'd have liked it.

His son apparently didn't care for it.

Yeah, but he didn't even appreciate the awesome name his dad gave him.

Touche!

There used to be (not sure if they're still there, or shut down, hopefully) a performer (believe it was a magic show) in Vegas who went by the name "Zowie Bowie".


I was going to add that in the history of famous celebrities....why does it always seem like the sons and daughters hate everything they either didn't think of or don't make money off of? Oh wait...

Just saying, asking the family members always seems like a losing proposition to me. Particularly the offspring.

I am interested to hear what you think after playing it for a day or two. I was in the last CBT and came away fairly relieved. What I mean is that we see all this hype about the character creator and the graphics and blah blah blah...but the hype has been thin on actual gameplay. I found the world and combat mechanics to be pretty enjoyable. I only had the time to get as far as level 10 so obviously I have no worthwhile opinion on the game as a whole. You can't really review a MMO based on the first 10 levels. That said, the foundation seems to be there. For people like myself who like to roll alts and play all of the available classes, it's a dream come true. That character creator is like crack cocaine. I am going to get my moneys worth just doing that. I haven't played with a character creator that fun since City of Heroes.

The beta was a lot of fun. Personally, I think the fight mechanics and gameplay are fantastic. They took the flash and flamboyant art style of Ultra IV and multiplied it by 10. Some people will be put off by it I am sure. I dig it though.

Really? Rise of the Tomb Raider over Witcher 3? Okay...


I haven't played Rise of the Tomb Raider or Witcher 3 yet, but based on the previous games by both franchises I wouldn't have expected that. Like.....at all.

I'm SO happy everyone. I made my last car payment today. I'm also DEBT FREE! I still have to knock out the mortgage but that'll happen soon. Yay! No more credit card / auto payments. $22,500 in 2.5 years. Dance

Congrats man!

Congrats from me as well! It's a good feeling. I haven't had a car payment since 2002 and I doubt I ever will again. When I got done in 2002 if felt so great that I decided I was going to start saving for my next car right than so that I could buy it outright. Been doing that ever since, including both cars we have now.

Excellent. By the time I get around to actually having the free time required to play this, it'll have dropped in price and be patched up enough to run well on my old desktop. Mwahaha!

I'm with you. In my case I need my Grim Dawn addiction to wane...

I keep meaning to get to that. I kicked in money for it...I played some of it very early on and was really happy with the direction it was going...and than I got sidetracked and decided to wait for it to be "content final" before I would play again. It's basically there now and I have managed to get neck deep in a backlog over the holidays. Again. First world gamer problems. *sigh*

The character creator for that game is ridiculously cool. I was in the last CBT and will be in the next one, and I have enjoyed my limited time with the game. I am not at all sure about it's long term appeal yet as I didn't get to level very far but I did have a bit of fun for my short few hours that I was able to squeeze in. My expectations are set very low though. The genre isn't exactly popping with originality at the moment.

If King Joffrey were a real person, he'd be Martin Shkreli.

I mean...seriously...how much of an asshole are you when you can make Congress look like the good guys? The government might get the last laugh though. Imagine if he gets all his money taken, comes down with a disease, and then can't afford the medication for it.

That would be horrible.

The game runs very well now. It's just not that fun and gets real repetitive after a few hours. I couldn't finish it.

Oh, I thought folks were still having issues.

I played a little on the ps4 (which ran fine), but quickly got bored of the batmobile...way too much of that shit.

And their season pass was fucking laughable...


Same. Too much Batmobile particularly. Rule #678 in game development: You are trying too hard when driving the car in a superhero action video game feels more like a Super Mario game.

Short and over-simplified version:
Federal grant money or budgeted funds for education can be something more like extortion or bribery.

If a State doesn't meet certain standards, spend the money a certain way, etc the Federal government can take away the money or not provide more of it the following year. Not only that, but this extends beyond education. For example, if a state makes something legal that illegal by Federal laws the government can threaten to take away money for education, roads, etc. For some states, particularly states with a highly rural population, this is a big deal. For other states it's still a big deal because they can't or don't balance their budget without the government funds.

Is it really that hard to understand or read an email that backer+ receive or simply look at the website or read any of the other communications to understand that everyone who has already purchased SC gets both items included and people who buy after 2/14 need to buy them separately. Come on guys its not that hard to understand.

1) Reading is hard. The entire Internet struggles with it. This isn't limited to the gaming industry by any means.

2) Roberts has created a situation where plenty of people are literally hoping this whole thing will fail. They lace their criticisms with phrases like "I hope I am wrong...", but the reality is that they don't. It's like watching NASCAR, they are purely there for the next wreck. NASCAR makes money off of that drama, and so does Roberts.

Yeah, I made an account as well. The only MOBA I have ever played is Heroes of the Storm, and even than I have only done the single player/tutorial stuff. That said, I like to try new stuff out, even if it's old but new to me, and eventually I will get around to loading it up. Having a few free extras is a nice bonus.

From what I gathered, there's no real loot in the game. You have like 10 guns and that's it. It's just a top down action game, not an arpg. But I may be wrong...

You mean more like "Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris" than "Diablo"? That's what I thought too.
