Seems like the last one just barely came out. Did they say this was the last for a while?

Played at release for a while and really enjoyed it. Came back a few months later and it looked like a tablet had taken a shit all over the screen. Click this, click that, get a daily whatever! What a mess. Think I stuck around for about 10 minutes and haven't been back. I'm going to miss my bunny.

From Steam's preferences, you can already filter out tags like anime or visual novel,

It's annoying that we can't filter out custom tags. Battle Royale isn't an "official" tag yet, so I can't block them on my preferences. I can add them myself, but that doesn't do much good.

Game's already dying, huh?

They've done many of these. And every time someone makes the same attempt at a joke.

Actually the only hitch it had was within the first 10 mins of release and it was more or less queues and a busted interaction with Magni.

I think I was disconnected about a dozen times with world server down messages a few times. Definitely not smooth for me. Didn't get better until pretty late last night. Chat would continue to work so I could bitch to my guild mates at least.

Not too impressed with the game. I'd refund it if I were not past the two hours. I planned for a grind going in, but I didn't think it'd be at the same level as an MMO grind (or worse).

Are these games buying and downloading automatically for you?

Of course not. Are they rating themselves and proving they have no malware included? Nope, not doing that either. GOG is. And that's where I buy my games now. Why do you and others object so much to a curated (by Valve) section of Steam? In what way does it harm you from browsing all the other shovelware and asset flips? They'd still be there, ready to mine Monero.

I'd like to see Valve release a Steam Premier which is basically a curated form of their store. Leave Steam up with all the shit that goes with it for people who like to live dangerously. Steam Premier could be like old Steam. Same app, just a different section of it.

On top of that the big issue I had yesterday was the game allows you to double rebind keys. that caused a big problem for me to the point where I thought my game was bugged.

One of my biggest pet peeves. Apparently rebinding keys is hard to program for a lot of devs who suffer from WASD syndrome.

How is rerolling these days? Will it be lonely questing in empty areas and is all the player base endgame? Or is a fresh start very doable?

It's pretty dead. On occasion you might encounter a few people here or there, but it's mostly dead,

I wonder if it's a server issue. The zones have been full of people. I've been leveling my new alts and I hate having to compete with others for kills. I'd rather level alone. Dunno about instances, though, since I don't run them. As for if it's doable, the game can be solo'd all the way to near-max ilevel.

I recently got a few days free to log in (converting my old tokens to blizzard fun-bucks), and the game seemed pretty dead to me... Absolutely nobody talking in trade chat,

Sounds like a feature.

I logged in last night and it was a ghost town due to the server issues. Kind of eerie. Not much to do now until BfA's pre-expansion quests start.

This is one of those games that is obviously amazing, well supported and beloved by those that try it. I can't get into it. Tried 4 times on different platforms.

Steam says I have around 100 hours in it. I took a break just before they added the open world stuff. I've tried to return a few times, but just can't get back in to it. Not because it's not fun, but because I can't figure out wtf I'm doing. Everything changes too quickly, and as said, the UI just gets more clutter on it. Was good while it lasted though.

Article was crap. TLDR: Was it flawed? Sure. And it released against other games that did things better.

That's exactly what the article said. How does that make it crap?

That's what I mean. It said nothing, really. They took a dev post that said nearly nothing and turned it in to an article. No follow-up questions, no digging for a bit more. Just "here's what a dev said, let us rephrase it." So yeah, article was crap. Dev post was fine.

Putting gender aside (though you shouldn’t), if you work in advertising, public relations, broadcasting, law or financial services, you have a reason to fret.

If the robots are doing a better job at Public Relations, we're doomed. But at least we'll be happy about it.

funcom... make AO2...

I remember running in to walls due to horrible lag in AO1's launch. You'd line the camera up with where you wanted to go (aim at a wall so you stop), push forward, then wait 30 seconds for it to catch up. Thought it was a shitty game. But man do I want an AO2. I tried going back to AO1 a year or two ago and just couldn't get past the interface.

But then I remember playing that game is like looking at the raw feed of the Matrix.

As mentioned above, the tilesets help with that. The real difficulty (for me) was knowing what to do. This is old, but still useful tutorial. Watch some DF tutorials also. Or just jump in and assume your first dozen forts will collapse.

I've put in probably a couple hundred hours in to DF. Once you get int o it, you can zoom around the menus without much issue. At that point, it's a matter of which systems you hate (gear sets for military come to mind). I tend to play once a year to catch up on the changes and murder some goblins.

The slog from 60 to 90 is horrible now. Even with Heirlooms. 1-60 isn't bad. I haven't hit 90 yet, but WoD was very easy to level in so I'm hoping it hasn't changed. The pre-expansion event for Legion made leveling super easy, so hopefully they do something similar. I think I leveled up 5 or 6 characters from low levels to max level from that expansion patch. It was crazy easy. Now it's the opposite.
