Yeah, no clue why this hasn't been in the game for years. When I was playing regularly, you had to set up custom matches that were like Thunderdome. Bunch of unit members standing around watching 1v1's and waiting their turn.

And with regards to F2P, MWO has a much more palatable grind and matchmaking than something like World of Tanks/Warships/Warplanes.

Do not exceed the recommended dosage on the Advil. That stuff can really mess up your liver. And if you find yourself taking it for an extended period of time, see a doctor.
Docs prescribe *much* larger doses of Advil for short periods, right? If you have a healthy liver and are drinking/eating healthily, larger doses for short periods shouldn't have long term effects. Not advising it...but it's a good tool to have when you jack your back.

Hey Blue, do you irrigate your sinuses? I had to have surgery years ago from chronic sinusitis (infection every month) and the maintenance regimen that they put me on was irrigating at least once per day during pollen season or when exposed to dust/allergens. I got cocky and stopped after a few years and very quickly realized what a massive difference it made in my quality of life. Would recommend A+.

Sweet mother...that music was corny as hell. I'm hoping they meant it as a tongue in cheek nod to the 80's.

The Catapult doing a DFA is interesting. If they have ramming and DFA as physical attacks, that could be fun. Overall nothing to get overly excited about, but I'm looking forward to a single player/Co-Op Mechwarrior experience.

I played many months ago in EA and our group ran a small server. It was a lot of fun with mixed PvE and PvP content. That said, none of the guys in our group are interested in going back and trying it again if its still simplistic to wreck entire bases. Spending 8+ man hours to build something that gets utterly destroyed in 10 minutes while you're sleeping is not worthy of pursuit.

But are people more likely to be Night Owls *because* of health issues or is it vice versa? Maybe being a Night Owl and the increased mortality rate is the symptom rather than the cause.

Nope, the best Kickstarter is and always will be the Divinity games.

Divinity 2 is Game of the year you cant beat that no matter what you toss at it.
I didn't back either one of those. Honestly, I never bothered finishing the first one....though I've heard that after one of the big patches it made the storyline flow better. I've wanted to buy Divinity 2 because of the praise...but have been concerned about a repeat of the clunky/disjointed quests early in the first one.

Probably should bite the bullet, though. Both my kids bought Divinity 2 and have loved it. ...and if those two blockheads can get deep into the campaign, SURELY I can!

FO4:VR has been a lot of fun....but required quite a few .ini tweaks. Hopefully Skyrim will be a little more optimized when it hits Steam.

Just another scam to get people to sign up for Twitch prime. Just about as worthless a fee as you can find on the internet.
Yep. People paying for entertainment is absolutely fucking nuts. Kind of like paying for cable, or internet, or videogames. And just think, a lot of them get it for *free* as part of their Amazon Prime membership....they're so getting screwed. Poor dumb bastards.

This seems pretty cool....interesting mashup of two amazingly popular IPs/GameModes.... Obviously it's in EA, but I hope they flesh out a lot of the mods, mechanics and trees to give it even more complexity and depth.

Anyone have an opinion on whether the $29.99 is worth it for the Season Pass? I'm sorely tempted to get the vanilla game and wait a year for the DLC on sale.

Loved the original Far Cry. Loved Far Cry 3. Looks like I have to follow the law of Star Trek Movies and get Far Cry 5 since it's an odd number as well....

I have no idea why it's getting so much attention.
It's fun to sail with friends, have ship battles, and shoot yourself out of a cannon....for about 10 hours of gameplay. After that you realize it's pretty simplistic and there is no where else to go. The problem is that most of the fun is dependent on the friends part....which means it is in no way worth the $60 pricetag.

Seems like I remember that they were saying there would be substantially more content *at* launch....not a future microtransaction store where you can buy reskinned eyepatches, parrots, and peglegs.

Again....glad I cancelled my preorder. Glad I don't have to deal with the trashy microsoft store. Glad I didn't have to deal with the launch issues. Glad all around....now back to Nier:Automata.

Whale Bait.

So long as it's not P2W effecting other player's enjoyment, good on them. They should cash in on anyone that thinks it's worth it. Never understood why people felt like $500 golden mechs and $1000 Battleships were an issue. Now World of Tanks golden ammo is another story...

Pre-ordered this sometime last month. Played beta two weekends. Cancelled pre-order due to lack of content and perceived lack of future engaging content. Watched streamers play today on Twitch.

Cancelling pre-order was the correct move.

What's wrong with Mechwarrior online?
That's a loaded question. I'll give you a quick synopsis of why people whine about MWO :
- They made promises they didn't keep like 3rd person viewing.
- There's no single player
- They made it F2P rather than $60 flat.
- I can't *own* a physical copy of the game.
- You have to grind out additional chassis rather than have all of them available when you start.
- Nitpicks about how weapons work and 'canon'.
- Nitpicks about everything else and 'canon'.
- And my absolute favorite : "I can't play the game the way I want to." IE, I suck and my favorite loadout is shit and I get steamrolled when I try to shoehorn it into a game. Like boating Small Lasers and charging across a wide open field screaming 'bushido!".

Basically old grognards (like me) are the biggest detriment to new Battletech games because they will piss and moan about EVERY goddamn thing.

That's a different opinion....this game shows up on just about every VR shooter recommendation that I run across. I've been too busy with Fallout 4VR and Karnage Chronicles to start another...
