I don't play the game, I just wanted to comment on Blizzards need to constantly "balance" every little thing, and how they tend to screw everything else just to fix a small balance issue.

Two things happen to software: either no one uses it and it dies, or people use it and it evolves in accordance with user needs. Blizzard games get played. A lot. That means that user needs unaddressed by the current version come up, and consequently Blizzard has a financial stake in addressing them. That Blizzard doesn't always get it right is just a reflection of the fact that software is a human artifact produced for human use and not a pure mathematical perfection that can be achieved and never touched again. At least when they royally fuck up, they tend to recognize it and fix it.

Truth.

I played this three years ago. Has it improved a lot?

The game actually hasn't improved much at all in that time. They released the deadliest warrior TV-show tie-in side game and basically ledt this one in the dust. There are still alot of unaddressed bugs in characters and maps that probably will never get worked out at this point. It's a shame because the game is really quite good.. but would have been a ton better if they would have simply focused on the main game. For example, I rebind over half of the keys in chivalry, and every single patch that has ever come out for the game undoes my custom bindings and sets them to default. For a while there i just took screenshots of my config in-game and then matched them from that to speed up the process, but after a while got tired of having to do that so quit playing entirely.

Another great melee fps is Pirates, Vikings and Knights II , which is still being actively developed and having new characters and maps added. The man at arms for the knights team is straight out of the holy grail, and for a source mod it is very well presented and polished, and very easy to learn.

News Comments > New Vive Controller and PS4 Controller Coming to Steam
4. Re: New Vive Controller and PS4 Controller Coming to Steam Oct 13, 2016, 13:28 Mordecai Walfish
 
After all this time waiting for Sony to add official drivers for the DS4 in Windows, it's a bit of a surprise to see Valve having this in the works. Very cool. I really only use x360ce for ds4 compatibility as it results in the least input lag of the different xinput emulator options, so it will be interesting to see how valve's implementation fares in that regard. Love the PS4 controller above any others I've used though, so even if it's not the best implementation possible it will still be nice to have new/different options for how to use it.

News Comments > Overwatch Launches PvE Mode and Halloween Skins
17. Re: Overwatch Launches PvE Mode and Halloween Skins Oct 12, 2016, 10:58 Mordecai Walfish
 
First Halloween box I opened had a zenyatta legendary skin (Ra) in it, and a symmetra victory pose where she's buried underground with her hand sticking up out of the dirt in front of a tombstone that has a couple of her laser turrets attached to it. Almost at prestige 3 level so will be getting a new box almost every game for the first 10 levels, and probably grind up to about level 20 when it goes back to full xp/lv. Saved over 9k coins so I'll just buy the good skins I'm missing at the end of the event. I don't spend coins on shit, in anticipation of new stuff being added or limited time stuff like this.

That will be the case regardless of who the Dems elected. They did the same thing to Bill Clinton. Partisanship is just too strong right now for the Repubs to act sanely.

I wholeheartedly agree with this, but there is no way it would be to the extent that they will with Hillary. She has been the republican's boogeyman for quite some time now, with the repeated benghazi hearings, the e-mail scandal that many of them believe she should be in prison over, etc. No other current democrat I know of has the same level of hatred directed toward them as she does. It's a whole different level with her, and republican voters will flock to vote in the mid-term elections for anyone who campaigns on the platform of defying her and the goals/policies she tries to push, in any way they can. There is no greater rallying call to get republicans to the booth than Hillary right now.

It needs about 4 more maps, and not trickled in, all at once.

Different game modes would be nice too. It's good they are adding in public custom playlists at some point, but there needs to be more content in many different regards to retain different types of players. Once the game became all about competitive, many players simply didn't want to deal with the stress that comes with that and have moved on. 90% of the players in my friends list (80+) simply do not log in to Overwatch anymore. It seems like there has been a huge decline across the board in the past couple months.

More Wikileaks are coming out and should be pissing off Bernie supporters who gave money to his campaign only to see him torpedoed by the Clinton cheating with the DNC.

Will Democrats pay attention? Probably not. They know Hillary is a corrupt candidate but she will be their corrupt candidate.

Bernie's campaign was the first I've ever donated to and volunteered for.. it's such a shame that the DNC actively tried to shut him down, especially with how close he was to beating Hillary. He would have been a sure thing against Trump, especially with all the scandals that have been revealed. Any decent candidate would easily win against their opponent in that situation, but with Hillary it's still not a done deal because she is a tremendously shitty candidate as well. It's a shame that Bernie probably will not be a viable candidate in 2020 to run against her if she ends up being a terrible president, which is no doubt going to be the case, as I dont see the republicans going any easier on her than they did on Obama. I expect they will be much less willing to work with her, and the shitshow of obstructionism we've seen so much in recent presidencies will continue full throttle. God I don't want to vote for her, but Trump is a fucking lunatic and Gary Johnson is a moron who is unfit for office as well. The next 4-8 years are pretty much fucked from all angles at this point.

4. Re: Gone Gold - Skyrim Special Edition Oct 10, 2016, 19:40 Mordecai Walfish
 
When this releases I will actually be playing through skyrim for my first time. I've had the legendary edition for a while now, but had so many other titles on the backburner that I didn't want to get into the 200+hr adventure I knew was in front of me quite yet. I'm a bit too much of a completionist to just play the main story line, and I rarely use online guides or walkthroughs for any single player games.

Glad I waited to play the best version my first go-round, it's gonna be a fun winter =)

Who has ever been threatened with lethal force over the size of their toilet or light bulb purchasing choices in this country?

Character animations look like they're straight out of a flash game, and possibly the worst jumping sound from the main char I've ever heard in a game.

Being consistently one of the best gaming news sites on the internet since its infancy is no small feat. This is literally the only site that I have all ad-blocking measures turned off for, because you do it right. Thanks for all you do Blue.

Yes, and will continue to be a 'thing'.. Hydra and all that. It's much like the laughing man from ghost in the shell. Even if you were to kill or imprison any powerful or influential member, another will eventually be there to take their place.. perhaps not completely, but in accordance to their own particular convictions/motives and skill sets. This also makes it succiptible to outside entities that could pose as the group to defame them, or use their platform to push a somewhat radical political position like this tea party message we see here today.

We all knew DH wouldn't succeed.

They're crowd funding their legal action. It's not going well.

They don't have my sympathy.

Their crowdfunding is costing them far more than it's netting them. People are donating the smallest amount possible and then issuing chargebacks through their card company, which is costing them like $25 a pop.

Hyper Light Drifter is a really fun indie 16-bit-ish ARPG. Highly recommended if you're into that sort of thing. Very unique in it's presentation and gameplay.

Just wanted to advise people that are emulation/Zelda fans that Hypatia has released the final version of the Wind Waker HD mod that has been in the making for 4+ years now.

http://onthegreatsea.tumblr.com/

All textures are updated and it looks fantastic on the dolphin emulator (Recommended to use the Ishiiruka Build of dolphin, as it runs faster and has additional graphics/performance tweaking options)

Funny story about Wind Waker: My first playthrough of the game was in 2008 on the GameCube, and during that time the area that I live in had the largest flood ever recorded in this region. I'm now about halfway through my 2nd playthrough of the game and we are currently having the 2nd worst flood (so far) in this region's history. The nearby river just crested at 22ft today.

The Legend of Zelda is such a magical series <3 Flood

I like this girl!

Agreed. She doesn't take herself too seriously, communicates with her viewers without going too overboard, from what I saw linked from this article. The butthurt twitch streamers think she is robbing them of followers because of her massive fanbase, and put her down for not being a "real content creator", but that's just a bunch of BS from people who are jealous of how many views/followers she gets, and not to mention is hypocritical as shit. If you had some Italian dude with a v-neck showing a bit of chest hair, do you think he would get banned? Not likely.. but then again, he most likely wouldn't have as man viewers, so people would not be as jealous of him.

She isn't doing anything racier than what you can see in any music video made in the past 2 decades. I don't see what the issue is.
