War of the Chosen is very buggy for me. I've had animations stop, dead bodies stand up, objectives not complete despite doing them (this one is annoying), and sometimes the camera stops following whomever is moving. It's starting to annoy me.

Neat. Afraid I'm not that clever though. Anyone playing? Is it the same as the first game? I never got close to finishing it. The EA version might be better for me since it's only a few hours long I've read.

I should buy this. I'd probably never play though 'cause I'm a lone wolf (pup).

So sounds like our choices are: A) free credit monitoring for a year or B) get to take part in a class-action lawsuit. Tough choice, since the class-action will most likely get us what, $5 Visa gift card? I should have become a lawyer.

If the computer says you owe 12 then by golly you owe 12.

Why the hell didn't they just add 12 cents to her next bill?

What impressed me the most were the loading times. They went from around 20 seconds on my system to 3. :O

Which is good because of all the reloading I do and.. erm.. I know. I'm ashamed of myself.

Same. The turn extension mod was the only thing that saved it for me. I'll probably wait until the Christmas sale to make sure that the mods are all working properly... Well...that and the fact that I'm in a backlog of titles I'm trying to play at this hot second.

Sounds like this version has an ini file that lets you tweak the turns. Most likely a mod is coming that does it for you (the current top turns mod was broken when I last looked). So not quite as easy as a mod yet, but not hard to change.

And it's a "start over" type of DLC. It integrates with the campaign and adds way more stuff to play with. A lot more to do on the strategy layer, more options in battles, and random SITREPs that can change up missions, like having one heavily-buffed soldier instead of a full squad.

Any idea if older mods still work? I had one that extended the turns of the mission before reinforcements came in. I hate feeling rushed.

So is this a "start over and play this" DLC or a "Use your uber-max level characters" DLC? I never finished the game, but I get tempted to play again.

Valve may not care about Dota being review bombed, but I bet they'll care about Artifact getting bombed. Of course, they can just prune the reviews easily enough.

I have never understood what the hell happened for them not to finish this.

$$$ happened. Hopefully CS:GO and TF2 start to die to other games. Maybe Valve will give a fuck if their cash cows are threatened. I don't see DOTA going anywhere anytime soon though.

Was this one locked to 30fps? I was reading articles about it, but they kept saying Destiny, so I'm not sure if they meant Destiny 2.

They need some new enemies to kill. I'm tired of killing Alex over and over. I enjoyed leveling up in the game, but not much reason to play anymore. Maybe they can unlock/expand to another location.

This is a really strange decision.... why not add some story mode or persistent PvE mode instead?

I get the impression that they add things that they want to play around the office. And since they have a bunch of people in the office to play with, PvE is probably lower on the list.

What they need is a way to have oculus games be installed on a any drive you have vs the one you set oculus up on originally.

You're probably already aware of symbolic links. Pain in the ass, but they work. It's hard to believe anyone would put out software that doesn't allow you to move where the files are located. Even their SDK was pretty bitchy about it's path for a while (under DK1).

Also, while nice to have, this change above isn't a big deal. What I want is for Oculus games to work in Vive without jumping through hoops and using Revive. Some games are cross-compatible, but not many.

No mention of Heroes of the Storm. I wonder how it's doing. They keep pimping it which makes me think it's dying.

Blizzard had Q2-record time spent. In April, Blizzard launched Uprising, an Overwatch seasonal event that included a player-versus-environment mode that drew record play time.

Hope this means more of this. I really enjoyed it. I want something a bit longer though and not so wave-like. Like an MMO. Bring back Titan!
