I hope this law passes so i can see how this will work out for them.

I hope the folks who pass this are first to experience the inevitable leak. Something tells me they won't give a shit until their information is all over the net, and then they'll cry about it.

News Comments > Steam Top 10

The port of Dragon's Dogma could have been better. The menu system is shit. It's manageable, but the way the split apart the equipment and regular inventory is a pain in the ass to use. And no drag/drop for moving stuff around. A lot of it is arrow keys. Various buttons on screen can't be clicked. Backspace saves changes?? WTF is up with that??

I think I'm around 6 hours in. I am enjoying it, but GOTY it is not. I'd say $10 is the right price for it. Oh, and no ultrawide support, but I can forgive that one since this game is a few years old.

Half-Life 2 is supported. Great. Did you re-do it with hi-rez textures and improved poly-counts? No? Why the hell would I pay $500 to see graphics from over a decade ago?

It's very immersive. Even though HL2 is probably the one game I'd not recommend because of the weird movement in the game. If you haven't been using a headset much, it's a good way to end up in pukeville.

Make World of Warcraft compatible.

Blizzard has said they're keeping an eye on VR and will decide if they want to add it. It's also somewhat already added if you want to do it yourself (or was for DK1). The UI was a bit weird though.

Lots of games have support already via VorpX or Vireio, but it's not native support so it's not quite as good. But you can still play many many games using it. In fact, FO4 is already working using VorpX.

Bunch of info on Reddit. Sounds like their caching went haywire. Lots of personal info leaked, but hopefully no credit cards.

But.. I dunno what to buy anymore. This new steam sale method with no flash sales is boring and disengaging.

This will be the first year in a while that I just don't care about Steam's sale. The fall one was such a let-down. Sure I'll jump on and look at my wishlist prices, but after that it's ho-hum.

I really like these. And I like that they're okay with scrapping a game system that sucks (or in D3's case, the majority of the system).

Bioshock 1 & 2 were quite awesome. That last game, not so much. The story was just far too ludicrous for my tastes.

But Elizabeth was wonderful! One of the rare NPCs that isn't terrible. I'm looking at you, Dogmeat.

I just went to try it and it looks like I need to reinstall from scratch. I'm wondering how the flight controls are these days. When it first came out, I absolutely hated them. I've heard they've tweaked them a bit and made another mode even, but haven't tried yet. I really like the feel of Elite Dangerous and wonder how it compares.

So far it looks like those in the stress/beta test have enjoyed it, and those who are not recently had a pet murdered by Blizzard. Maybe a few in between.

Developer Diary was good, but I still want to see them address monetization in the future. I assume we're getting outfits.

Not in beta, cause to me this just looks like Unreal Tournament in HD, a twitchy fast paced get creamed by 12 year olds kind of game.

Let me guess, it is designed from the ground up to be played with a game controller.

It is very fast and twitchy. I'm sure there are some characters that can be played with a controller (tanks maybe), but quite a few would be hard as well. One thing I really like is that when you do the character selection, it tells you which roles are missing. It really encourages a well-rounded team. And the roles aren't just healing/support/tank. It says things like, "You have no builders" or "you have no snipers" depending on the map.

2. Re: Overwatch Beta Hiatus Dec 3, 2015, 22:17 Frijoles
 
I got in to the stress test and enjoyed it. You can tell they're just barely beta, if not alpha, though. No personal stats at all on any of the characters, so it's hard to see any progression. Not that it's needed (Q3 didn't have no stinkin' stats), but it's nice to have. Lots of other little things missing. Gameplay was really good though.

Also, Mei for life. <3

Yeah, a Desktop Manager, it's like the Task Switcher (alt-tab), only more useful, and Linux and Mac have had it for years.

Been using this since I switched to 10 and I'm not sure I can go back to an OS without it. I use it at work all the time to hide my games.

I'm tempted to rollback to 7. I get really weird hard drive usage bottlenecks on 10. I haven't been able to figure out the cause, but it's moved past annoying. The whole system locks up for about 20 seconds if the C Drive gets even slightly busy.

If they are the same, it's because Beth was lazy and reused assets.

Ummm...aren't these drones going be shot down and or destroyed/stolen in some way? They can't be cheap.

People keep suggesting this, but a FedEx truck seems easier to steal. They have no door and leave the key in. Also, the drones have cameras, so it'd probably only happen a few times if that.

I use the controller on Ori and the Blind Forest. Works fine for the most part, but I also ignore the touch pads. And then I got the Bash skill. And then I raged. Bash let's you point in a direction you want to go, but on the Steam Controller it moves at warp 10 so you can't position it very easily. Had to switch to keyboard so I could aim.

Aside from that it's been fine. Not sure anything is gained over an XBox controller, though.
