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.

Some news I didn't expect to ever see.. since I thought it was dead. I may have to try it again. I recall enjoying various aspects of it.

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!

Shall we take bets on how long until they nerf his one-punch insta-kill? They took it away from Roadhog only to bring it back on Doomfist. I'm guessing about 6 months.

House Party, Sexy 3D Game Removed From Steam Due To Complaints…

Leave the shit games because reasons. Get rid of the pixel titty game because other reasons. Maybe they could just create a filter for adult content and have it default to on. Nah, too much work.

The case centres around Milwaukee Country, Wisconsin, which adopted an AR ordinance back in February demanding developers behind games such as Pokémon Go purchase a permit before their apps could be used in the county's parks.

Milwaukee County was asking developers to estimate crowd size as well as the dates and times these crowds were likely to descend upon the parks. Studios were also required to specify their plans to handle on-site security, medical services, garbage collection and even bathroom use. And the developer would have to pay $1,000.

Me thinks they have no idea how this game works. Not that that would stop them from legislating it.

I have that camera. Can confirm. Facial recognition is shit. It picks up the shadows from my trees and alerts me. Picks up bugs flying around at night and alerts me. Picks up a cat walking past. "We spotted someone!!" Their algorithm appears to be "was there movement?"

Great camera otherwise. Nice clear picture.

Okay, I gotta ask... what were her arguments for it?

The dryer sends a push notification when the laundry is done. VERY IMPORTANT.

That's exactly what it does (the washer too) and one of the reasons she wants it. Let's you see in real time what temperature it is drying at and the progress. Or to put another way, something completely pointless. Or rather, something that will break down and not be easy/cheap to fix.

Wife wants a smart-phone connected washer/dryer. I'd argue with her, but imagine that's how people felt when TV remotes came out. Someone is going to hack my dryer and burn my house down.
