What CA should do is simply go ahead and abolish all laws on the books and maybe, after the citizens and illegals kill each other off completely, the state could start again fresh...;) Seems to be their only option as people are abandoning the state like rats from a sinking barge. As some areas of the state already resemble open sewers (can you even imagine a "park" that features open urinals and latrines? If not--go to CA if that's your cup of "tea")), how can you blame them? Tremendous taxes paid to live in a sewer? No thanks...;)

Lol. I'm sure they'll stay off your lawn, so don't worry yourself too much.

I played this when it came out. The campaign was fun. The endgame PvE missions were boring as hell. They need to add a LOT of random events and layouts to them.

The PvE was a shitshow of repetitive bulletsponge crap and hackers galore. Their security around what they let the client access was just pathetic. Like whoever wrote it should be fired and kicked in the nuts on the way out. It was open season for all kinds of hacks.

Then they came out with that Phoenix mission which was just more repetitive bulletsponge terribleness. On top of that, the loot balance was horrible. I'm not gonna grind for a month to get a fucking gun that is practically necessary for doing the highest level content.

I can't see myself ever bothering with this game again, and I really regret buying it. Guess it's what I get for letting my coworkers talk me into it.

I've played the first two campaign missions and there are no MOBA elements in that part at least. Or if there are, I don't know what a MOBA is. It plays like a RTS. Maybe the multiplayer is MOBA-like but I was never into DOW multi anyway.

Just saw there's already a patch released for the graphics settings issue. That was fast!

Yeah, I have no idea what anyone here is talking about with the MOBA stuff. I was just watching gameplay vids of it from a couple days ago, and there was nothing MOBA-like about it at all. If having to kill a specific enemy structure is what they're saying makes it like a MOBA, then those people are just retarded.

I don't know if I'll like the game or not, because I'm not really interested in the multiplayer. I'll have to look into whether the single player aspects are worth it.

Either way, this is NOT remotely like a MOBA.

Not interested in MP, so I guess I'll just wait and see if there's enough SP gameplay to be worth buying.

Is the game any good? I only really heard kind of "meh" reviews of it. It seems like something I might like, and not sure if it's improved since it launched a while back.

Yeah, I thought the game was pretty fun too, but at this point I'd wait until it's about $20, maybe $30 considering the new stuff.

I haven't played the game yet, but I liked the first one a lot, so will probably pick this up.

It's also 50% off on Steam until Monday, so that addresses the "people won't want to pay full-price at this point" argument someone made earlier.

Well we live in an age where unpopular opinions can be labeled hate speech. I have no use for Breitbart but from what I've seen their opinions are often extreme, but "hate speech"? Nah.

Yeah, I don't know if it can be classified as hate speech either. I'm just curious to see if there is really the kind of significant overlap in the over-the-top statements we see from Breitbart with CNN.

I don't watch cable news, so I may not be aware of this kind of thing. Would be interesting to see if CNN is actually as bad as Breitbart.

Wonder if that means that CNN will be blocked from ad revenue, some of their people definitely qualify for hate speech just like Breitbart.

Ok, I'd like to know more. Got examples of them saying things like Breitbart does?

I actually found the game pretty fun the first time around. Definitely wouldn't pay $50 for it at this point. Maybe at $20ish it might be worth it.

The nukes we have today are more than 10 times more powerful than the one from that video. Just in case that seemed small-ish to anyone.


Trump is obviously correct that we need to beef up our nukes.

I'm never buying anything connected with Mechwarrior Online, or probably the Mechwarrior franchise ever after the crap Piranha Games pulled. But that's just me, you guys go for it.

How does this have anything to do with Pirhana's fuckups? You aren't making any sense.

You must be unaware that this game uses Pirhaha's assets from MWO.

It uses their mech models, yes. How does getting some art assets from Pirhana matter to the development of the game though? They've already got the assets and have been working with them for many months now.

Don't you get it man??! It's tainted! TAINTED!!

Still, I get where Raz0r is coming from. Piranha has pulled some pretty shitty nonsense over the years.

Yeah, I get that. I refused to play MWO because they are such a shitty company. But can't see that as any reason to shun HBS.

cool.

The game desperately needs a loadout feature, as it's a giant pain to switch and carry all my different gear sets.

People still play this game? I quit after about a month. Once you got past the story it was a terrible, boring as hell grind. The Phoenix whatever update was terrible too, so I never went back. They couldn't balance the game for shit, and cheating was rampant in the Dark Zone.

We don't need it to be perfect man. We just need it to exist, and be timely.

Absolutely. My meaning is HBS runs a business so when they communicate with their backers and the public they should follow a measure of professional decorum otherwise they come off sounding small and amateurish. Informal is what Sean Murray used, and that didn't go so well for him. My translated example only provides the most important information people need to hear. They can relegate the "happy talk" to game show and convention chit-chat.

I don't particularly care if their informational releases aren't as polished as some others. I care that they make good games and are open and honest with their supporters. I'd rather they spend the money on the game than paying someone else to write this stuff.

As a backer at the $50 level, I care. I'm not interested in happy talk like "Now that our technical issues are behind us, the team is focused on quality and on delivering an experience that shows the world why HBS loves BattleTech and why everyone else should, too." That's superfluous nonsense that has nothing to do with the game itself. All I care about is the status of the game, what issues have they run into, and when can we expect the beta soon? That's it. Ditch the happy fluffy pillow talk. This isn't a relationship; I'm looking for answers.

P.S. this game was the last crowdfunded / early access project I backed. I believe I'm zero for all projects I backed (not including Star Citizen since I got a refund; that doesn't count). I have yet to see any launch. Of the bunch, BT is the only one that's close. I may back future HBS plans merely because they have, so far, an excellent track record of delivering on what they scope near the time they say they can deliver. As far as I'm concerned that's high ROI in my book. Thumbsup

I backed BT for $50 as well. HBS has always delivered what they promised, and I've backed all their Shadowrun games. That's why I'm fine with letting them say things however they like. They do good work, and haven't let me down yet.

I'm pretty particular about what I'll back, but so far the HBS games, Wasteland 2, and Torment have all been delivered. I didn't back SC because I didn't like their pricing and their scope seemed pretty out of control.

It supports Pirhana in name if nothing else which is enough for me to shit all over it.

So you're taking your hate for Pirhana out on a game made by a different company that has a track record of putting out good, niche games that otherwise wouldn't get made, just because they used some art assets from Pirhana.

That's really dumb.
