Anyone playing this game that can provide some opinions on how it is these days?

I bounce between MMOs. Last played this one about a month ago. The lower-level fates are fairly empty, so there's a bit of grind to level up. The Palace of the Dead was interesting. That's the procedurally generated instance that gets harder as you dive deeper. Mainly I just healed instance runs and did my one-a-day bonus to slowly level. I honestly didn't see a whole lot different from several months ago when I played last. It's a nice change of scenery, but if you hate WoW types MMOs, you probably wouldn't like it. Level 35 would certainly give you a taste though.

Biggest issue I have with the animations is the eyes. They bounce all over the place. And they feel like they're floating in the socket. There's other janky animations going on also, but the eyes distract me. And the main character's face never changing. Bleh.

I can use that every time I'm near the cargo and my team is gone. Which is about 95% of the time.

When Q3 came out I could barely compete. At 55 I hold no illusions. I'm not even gonna bother with this one.

With a good matchmaking system, you can be paired up with other old folks.

Firefox gets complaint for labeling unencrypted login page insecure.

That site got destroyed last night. There's a Reddit thread where they were discussing how bad their system was, and eventually they got database access. After discovering the plain-text passwords, someone blew away the user table. Someone woke up to a bad morning.

Edit: Found the thread on Reddit

Total Biscuit's Port Report. I don't know what to think, except it sounds like a controller should be used (I think most people assumed that already).

Apparently it's a buggy mess of a PC port. Was going to buy it, too.

There are still droves of people just aching to buy as soon as stock is replenished, if they're not giving in to the scalpers or settling for playing the game on Wii-U.

*sob* I have a $300 credit at Amazon and have been waiting for it to show up in stock. I'm not willing to pay an extra $150 though, which is what the other sellers are charging for it.

What do they expect when they make raiding a requirement to get flying in the newest zone...

Where do you see this? I could have sworn they said raiding wasn't a requirement. I hate raiding.

Third is a proper 8v8 MP mode, kill people and cap flags.

Needs more maps and game types. Throw in some contaminated zones where you have to unlock a chest of filters to use it. That'd be fun. Take a filter off a dead body. I've played several hours of Last Stand and while it's fun as a mindless 8v8, I'm getting a bit bored with it. Seems there's only 2 or 3 different maps/areas for it.

New Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Designed in Collaboration With Top eSports Players.

Still not ergonomic. Why do all the cool keyboards only come in fuck-yo-wrists format?

Just a day before leaving, however, Leeper allegedly created a network account under the name "Jeff Manning", called "jmanning", which provided him with remote access to Columbia's network

Maybe they should audit their accounts from time to time.

You have a turret that follows you around and fires at enemies, and you have some bosses that fire bullet-hell-like patterns.

The turret, camera, and bigass sword makes me think of Warframe. I should play that again.

Surprised they would do this considering how bad it is. Graphics are crap, UI is worse that bad. It's bad all around.

I will say that if you are on attack and the defending team has a Bastion AND a Torbjorn the game feels lost from the start. God forbid if they have a Bastion, Torbjorn, AND a Symmetra...

Just Genji him. Usually you can catch him unaware and make him kill himself, or get close to it. Or hook him if you can get close enough. Rein can smash him. Sombra can get behind him and hack him. Junkrat can usually lob shit at him. Lots of counters. Although I agree.. if you're on an uncoordinated team you may be SOL.

I grouped a bit at launch and the month after, but then went mostly solo. Did a bit of Underground that way. I know it's an MP game mainly, but does Last Stand have any solo content? I haven't been following it very closely.

He's a millionaire for sure, he was just working there because he enjoyed it and/or because he'd be bored otherwise. Must have changed his mind about one of those.

Maybe they changed the snack foods. I hear they went healthy. That'd drive me away too.

Even if VR sputters and dies like 3D televisions, I'll still be able to play the handful of games out right now for as long as my headset works, and honestly I'm fine with that. I'd treat it like a Sega Dreamcast, something that was ahead of it's time, and will be fun to come back to for decades to come.

Until a cable breaks and they won't replace it.

Maybe Gabe is really just a big Jack Tramiel fan.

Maybe he's a Cave Johnson fan and spends his money on moon dust and testing. We've seen where that leads.

Funny that they test it on Blizzard's game(Overwatch) instead of their own game.

I found that interesting. Blizzard mentioned in one of their videos that they were working on this kind of stuff and were making the data available. I wonder if that's why. It was already available and easy to work with, whereas CS:GO isn't yet.

Knock off 20 years of my life and I'd have loved to get in to that kind of stuff. I'm too old now.
