I've got a pretty big play space (the garage!)

You sir have made me jealous of your garage. My wife won't budge on moving just to get a larger Vive space. In fact, I dare say she isn't interested in that at all.

I can't play the game. The interface is just terrible. I really want to enjoy it, but so many mouse clicks to do the simplest things. And a bunch of windows didn't have hotkeys. I'll try again though; maybe they changed it in the latest patch.

I'm glad they removed The Settlers name from it, since this is nothing like that. Unfortunately, I wanted a new Settlers game (not that god-awful online thing).

And Microsofts inevitable Skynet OS will no doubt be a mandatory install.

You missed your chance to call it Skypenet.

Turbine's games all suffer from the same problem, shitacular UI. I hope the mobile area works for them and they get the millions of dollars that Clash of X is seeing. Because I want an AC3. With a better UI.

Many seemingly only look at that when backing up.

When I bought my car with a backup camera on it, the salesman told me to use the camera and ignore the mirrors. I use both. Camera is shit if it's bright outside anyway.

All they needed to make was Populus with updated graphics.

I'm really surprised this hasn't happened from other companies. I see a lot of procedurally generated landscapes from hobby developers messing around in Unity and wonder how hard it'd be to turn it in to Populous.

I got into my main character, and my 2 lowbies. I like how they expanded the HQ to the basement.

This underground expansion add much solo stuff? I grouped up for some of the larger missions and did some PVP, but most of my time was spent by myself. I enjoyed that, and $15 isn't much if I can get a few hours out of it.

Man I used to play this so much when it was new.

Nobody played when it was new.. too laggy. I remember aiming at a wall and pushing forward, then waiting 30 - 60 seconds for it to refresh the screen and show me at the wall. Aside from that and the instance generator thing, I can't remember much about the game.

I still have the first generation authenticator which was released in TBC. Damn thing is a beast but is starting to show its age and I have to really push hard on that button to give me the code.

I still have my original as well. I figure the battery will go before anything else fails. The thing has been through the wash a handful of times, but it keeps on truckin'.

Rhapsody turned to shit. Their desktop player wasn't bad until the update they forced on everyone last year. You'd think, "Hey, we do music for our business. Maybe we should have a good music player?" No, they never thought that. They thought, "Let's see what Amazon is doing and copy their model of having a shit player. It can't fail!"

One of these days I'll try Spotify.

Most of the people I know, including myself, have already given up on Overhype.

Everyone I know is still playing and way ahead of my level. Clearly we do not share a social circle.

Looking forward to seeing what they use for locomotion, and how the UI looks. Settlement placement will be interesting as well. Hell, the whole thing. I was wondering why it'd take 6+ months, but now that I think about it, there are a lot of little things. Like lockpicking and hacking having to be redone to not move the players head. I'm looking forward to this.

Apparently, they aren't bothering to compare hashes of leaked passwords to it's stored hashes to see if things match which is confirmation of creds leak

What do you mean by this? Wouldn't the hashes be different, especially if they salted them? The only method I can see is finding the leaked password list with emails and hashing them yourself.

This is one of the small things which I was very pleased to see added in to the game especially considering how amazing the zones look. Even if this is the worst expansion to date, you gotta give credit where credit is due and they really went the extra mile to provide some of the best looking zones in the game as well as their always phenomenal music team.

The leveling up experience was also the best, IMO. I really like the bonus events, the treasures you can find, the cut scenes, etc. I really enjoyed WoD until I hit 100. I'm itching for Legion, but don't want to burn out leveling up in the beta just to redo it (on all my alts) at launch.

More technically the lenses are muuuuch better than dk2, and the FOV is pretty big, seen some mods to bring your eyeball even closer and it becomes even bigger.

Quality of DK2 to CV1 is a pretty big as well. The built-in headphones are one of the best decisions they made (out of so many wrong decisions), and the screen door on CV1 is a lot better. Vive vs. CV1 resolution is about the same as far as I can tell, although CV1 has terrible god rays. None of this matters though because of roomscale. Hopefully Touch comes out with a roomscale for Oculus as well.

I don't have much to say about Battleborn. They need a free weekend I guess so I can try it.
