BvS... reminded me of transformers.
WW.... reminded me of Capt America.
SS.... GREAT music, shit movie.
JL.... was an Avengers ripoff.

I mean I am not exactly asking for originality out of Hollywood (never happens), but common...

ps. yes, I am too lazy to type full names of the movies.

What IGN thing? Anyway, good game. I picked it up ages ago for a fiver or something. Quite enjoyed it actually.


Could not disagree more. If you miss this, you will be fine. I'd call it 4th worst Xcom game behind enforcer, Xcom3 and interceptor.

Played the open beta. Did the free trial. Just isn't fun. It is like playing halo+. biggest challenge on PC? finding your way out of some missions.

I think it's funny how prestigious studios like CD Projekt Red snipe EA with that cunty tweet saying: "We'll leave greed to others" while The Witcher 3 released with 2 $30 DLC content packs.

The whole thing is such a mess.

Ya, damn CD Projekt Red and their greed.

LOL.

You're fucking delusional. Glad I dropped you from Origin.

you still have Origin installed? hahaha

"down 8.5 percent month to date"

Um... yes... and up 1% in the past 5 days, down maybe 5% since the beta started, and up nearly 1% since the release of SW:BF2. It's almost as if they cherry-picked the time period to make it look relevant... I'm a passionate EA-hater, but to draw the comparison is just silly. It's up nearly 20% on the year and up nearly 7 fold in the past half-decade.

EA's doing just fine and anyone w/ a basic ability to read stock info should know better.

Then again, this *IS* CNBC, so...


you have to remember, not gaining at the rate that the overall stock market is gaining is a bad thing. up 1% is bad when everyone else is up 10%... my 2 cents

also, will it meet it's earning forecast is a issue too.

This actually looks pretty good. I wish I had a VR set.

$350 can change that wish into a Rift.

okay, I wish I had an excess $350 to spend on a VR set...
better?

Still boring as fuck really, overwatch is just a really oversimplified multiplayer shooter that anyone who is old has played before and played better.

It really exists only because it was released by blizzard and unto the cult of bliz fans. The game is just very boring over time. It just can't hold a candle to past fps games esp if you grew up on them in the 90's.


Overwatch is just like modern blizzard - all flash, no substance.

Speaking as someone who's been playing FPSes since the original Wolfenstein came out, you are objectively wrong. Name one FPS from the 90s that had melee tanks with AOE shields, pudge hooks, time rewinds, etc. I asked you this before but you just flat out ignored it because mechanics like this simply didn't exist back in the day.

It's fine if you don't like the game, but at this point your ignorant ramblings are just pathetic.


Dude, have you forgotten all the quake mods? TF had classes and game play style. runes had CRAZY powers. no, it wasn't exactly like overwatch, but they set ALL this up. If I remember correctly, there was even a top down mod for quake like current MOBAs.

Tune in next time for the new way EA has found to screw the consumer. Same bat-time, same bat-channel!

My guess, characters will be for $$ DLC only. No free unlock.

Yup, it's call of Doody. Historical accuracy? Hell no. Good graphics? Sure, for 2007. more than 12 players? Nope!


you forgot the "bad port of a console" part, and guaranteed hacks... prolly out now.

as cheap as it is, not worth installing Origin on my computer again. plus BF2 comes out early Oct, so without single player and community migration to BF2, not worth it IMO.

So, this guy has 3 whole post and we are supposed to buy into his bullshit review? Yea, right!!

I actually like the beta, payed the Coop mission with some friends and we had a blast. was a lot of fun. Maxed out everything ran like a champ on the Ti 1080 on 28" 4K HD monitor full resolution.

held 60 FPS without any drops at all.

I don't care what you "buy into" I gave my opinion of the game.

My impression of the beta: (PC)
I was able to get in the 24 early period, but it took 2 hours of contentiously restarting game to get it to connect. error saxophone
Once in, I was pleasantly surprised about Nathan Fillion voice over. Sadly, this was the highlight.
The intro mission was kinda boring and VERY linear. The cut scenes were okay, but ugly.
The match making was painfully slow, and 1 game never loaded. I had to Alt F4 that.
PVE was fun once. It is like replaying the same dungeon run over.. and over.. and over.
PVP was chaos and all about hand-cannon/grenade launcher (1 "hit" kills). Again, boring fast.
The over all graphics (1080P max settings) ran great, but it looked like it was a 8 year old game. Reminds me of Borderlands. The fire was annoying bad, and I found my character got stuck on pebbles that I would have to jump over. I actually got stuck in a tree once.

final words: 4/10 already uninstalled and not going to play again. Might be good for console newbs who have to use a controller.

I have loved X-com ever since it was my first ever CD-ROM game. This X-com 2 is the worst thing since The Bureau. Add in the $90 of DLC... NO THANK YOU. Removed from wish list. First X-com game I refuse to buy.
