Re: Fried video card

The tech world passes me by until the next time I build a computer, then it's binge-research time, so right now I can't speak with any authority about the latest generation of video cards. However, I would recommend double-checking your favorite games to make sure they don't have any known issues wi...

Re: Overwatch?

What button do I push to tag in my other fighter? =oP @Mucky: No, you're still oversimplifying fighting game mechanics. I did indicate that was my intention: "... were meant to be limited to ... some high concepts about system balance..." "I was brief because I didn't want to get too ...

Re: Overwatch?

@Milldawg: If you're comparing fighting games to team strategy games, No, not really. The comparisons I introduced were meant to be limited to character selection and some high concepts about system balance, rather than inter-genre balance. @Mucky: Judging by your post, it's clear you don't play fig...

Re: Overwatch?

Ehhhh, this sounds kind of like how they handle fighting games, but fighting games are famously hard to balance. Even when the package of abilities is self contained, there's no predicting how they play out once "out in the wild" compared to other characters. If anything I'd think just ha...

Re: Overwatch?

Last time I looked at the WoW shop, it made me ill. If someone has the discretionary income to blow $25 a piece on vanity items, more power to them, but holy crap the entire shop is catered to that level of excess. I will put money into a Free-to-Play game like League of Legends in lieu of a retail ...

Re: E3 2016

I remember when they put an end to E3 because it was a financial blackhole for game companies and publishers.

Re: Overwatch?

5 skins definitely qualifies as the full experience! Take another $20, Blizzard! My game would not be complete without moss, two face reveals, a randomly blue outfit, and a randomly brown outfit! That's totally worth 50% of the base price!

Re: Overwatch?

Re: Overwatch?

I played the open beta, and it's definitely got that old-school shooter vibe. I like it. D'va was my go-to gal. The fighting game style of character roster is a good fit, as it is in MOBAs. Keeps designers and artists employed to continue making new characters, so that's cool. For a designer, there'...

Re: Tracer Joins the Nexus in Heroes of the Storm

You may not trust career journalism, but many do, as the Sandy Beaches guy lamented after his experiment. I'd say Maddox fact-checking and addressing the bullshit from so many big magazine labels is a step in the right direction.

Re: Tracer Joins the Nexus in Heroes of the Storm

All of the sites that guy lists are clickbait sites, so... yeah. Time Magazine, among others? Well, you could define all magazines as 'clickbait' in that they want to catch your attention and get you reading their content. As far as whether the various authors are being disingenuous, their argument...
